Distinguished Panel Hears Charge of Crimes Against Humanity

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration has announced January 20-22 for its final session of hearings. Verdicts are expected around the time of the Bush’s State of the Union address and nationwide demonstrations occurring then. The work of the Commission is historic, with the potential to profoundly affect the gathering storm around the Bush administration.

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration of the United States

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration of the United States,

When the possibility of far-reaching war crimes and crimes against humanity exists, people of conscience have a solemn responsibility to inquire into the nature and scope of these acts and to determine if they do in fact rise to the level of war crimes and crimes against humanity. That is the mission of the International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity. The final session will be held January 20-22 in New York City. This tribunal will, with care and rigor, present evidence and assess whether George W. Bush and his administration have committed crimes against humanity. Well-established international law will be referenced where applicable, but the tribunal will not be limited by the scope of existing international law.

Let us impeach George Bush, and let it begin with me

Let us impeach George Bush, and let it begin with me,
Let us impeach George Bush, and don't forget Dick Cheney.
With George Bush in prison, safer we will be,
Let's lock up big brother, and have some privacy.

After considering his latest TV performance in defending his latest scandal, I write today to sound the alarm that our President is officially out of control. Though I had not considered it a serious possibility, after reflecting on it I agree with those who say it is time to get rolling with our impeachment option.

Bring Peace to the White House the Day After Xmas

PeaceAction Montgomery will be working to end the war in Iraq by gathering in Washington, DC, and placing toy soldiers labeled "Bring Me Home" around each of the 56 Christmas trees on the Ellipse in front of the White House. Please join us in spreading the message of what the U.S. must do. The trees are part of the season's message of Peace on Earth. Each state and territory is sending its sons and daughters to fight in a war without reason or end. This must end. Let's place our wishes to bring these soldiers to safety at the foot of each tree and remind Americans that it's time to bring the soldiers home.

State of the Union: Plan Now!

Tuesday January 31 - Drown Out Bush's Lies during the State of the Union

Saturday, February 4 - Protest at the Seat of Government! BUSH STEP DOWN

It's going to take an organized movement of millions to Drive OUT the Bush Regime: The LA Times reported last month that Bush's advisors hope his speech will lead the populace to "turn the page" on the debacle of the past few months, as crime after crime has been exposed and Bush's poll numbers fell. They're hoping to regroup and "reposition" Bush, to focus people on going forward united with his program. There is not doubt that he will push on "to radically remake society, very quickly, in a faxcist way, and for generations to come", as our Call says.

Can you please help spread this meme?
"Project for a New American Century" is the think tank that created US government neocons. Get people Googling PNAC, and they will find out that this neocon agenda is hardly what they voted for, indeed is dangerous to American life and to the world. Write it, say it - and now WEAR this meme.

A.N.S.W.E.R. Responds to UFPJ: Our Position on Unity in the AntiWar Movement

From A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Steering Committee

Ten weeks after the September 24 demonstration brought more than 300,000 people to Washington DC in a massive show of strength by a united antiwar movement, the leadership of the United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) has publicly announced its unilateral intention to effect a long-term split in the antiwar movement. This is the second time in seven months that UFPJ has publicly proclaimed its intention to split the movement, coupled with a false and ugly attack on the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition. In May 2005, they announced that they would hold a second and separate demonstration in Washington DC on September 24 rather than work in a united front with A.N.S.W.E.R.. Fortunately, the progressive movement overcame that splitting effort, which would have seriously weakened the movement at a critical moment.
