Protest When Yoo Speaks on Globalization
Demonstrate against John Yoo - March 15, 5:30 - 7pm
Commonwealth Club - 595 Market St, San Franciso, CA
Not content with American ownership of the Middle East, Berkeley's premier war criminal sets his sights on the heavens, writing
“OUTER space has become the next frontier for American national security and business. From space, we follow terrorists and intercept their communications, detect foreign military deployments, and monitor a proliferation of unconventional weapons. Our Global Positioning System gives us targeting and tactical advantages, spacecraft create image-rich maps, and satellites beam data around the world…"
John Yoo argues that dozens of international institutions like the International Court of Justice and the World Trade Organization present an unavoidable challenge to American constitutional law. He argues that America must re-conceptualize the Constitution and must recognize the President's power to terminate international agreements and interpret international law.
We say NO! to this program.
Many people know the name of John Yoo, but most do not know his full role in the criminal enterprise known as the Bush Regime. Yoo is associated with the infamous 81-page “torture memo” written while he was a Department of Justice lawyer, on a two-year leave from the UC Berkeley Law faculty. He is one of the many Bush administration attorneys who provided legal justification and cover for the illegal actions of the Bush regime during its eight years in power, including the lies prefacing the immoral and illegitimate war on Iraq.
