Protest BUSH Era+ War Criminals when they converge on NYC- September 2011
by Debra Sweet, Director, World Can't Wait
With the 10th anniversary of 9/11, NYC will be the destination of choice for major US war criminals, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Michael Mukasey, John Yoo, Michael Chertoff, Henry Kissinger and John Ashcroft. These are the people who brought us torture, indefinite detention, and trillion-dollar wars that have claimed countless Afghani, Iraqi and US lives. They should be indicted and prosecuted for their crimes, not honored as speakers and special guests at symposia, memorials and fancy dinners. The brutality of the “war on terror”and the US wars of aggression are condemned both by the court of global public opinion and by international law, including the Geneva Conventions and the Convention against Torture.
People of conscience must insist on accountability for the actions of U.S. officials. Join War Criminals Watch, World Can’t Wait, CodePink, Witness Against Torture. More information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
