We Indict the US Government for War Crimes & Crimes Against Humanity

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 10 July 2013


By The World Can't Wait Steering Committee         The U.S. government is prosecuting Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden who exposed war crimes and crimes against humanity by the U.S. Now is the time to issue a powerful people's indictment of the crimes of the US government and counter the war on truth tellers.

We urge people to go out publicly in every way they can think of. Read these indictments aloud on street corners, post them up online and on paper, tweet them, and participate in creative protests to bring the indispensable peoples' voice and actions into this politically intolerable scene.

The Indictments

We indict the U.S. government: For using mass surveillance on whole populations, with the intent to chill protest and dissent.

We indict the U.S. government: For indefinite detention and torture of prisoners at Guantanamo and other sites including torturing hunger strikers with force-feeding.

We indict the U.S. government: For wars of aggressionunjust occupations, and the use of drones, killing hundreds of thousands of civilians around the world

We indict the U.S. government: For the mass incarceration of over 2.4 million people in the United States, mainly Black and Latino, a program with a genocidal impact against these groups, including torture, solitary confinement, and unjust executions.

We indict the U.S. government and state governments: For making abortion and birth control increasingly illegal and inaccessible, endangering women’s lives.

We indict the U.S. government: For being a large contributor to climate change, sabotoging international efforts to curb greenhouse emissions and taking no real meaningful action to reverse the trajectory.

We indict the US government: for torturing, intimidating and prosecuting whistleblowers while covering up and not prosecuting those responsible for the war crimes and crimes against humanity.

We pledge mass public opposition to the crimes of our government, taking inspiration and finding common cause with those who around the world are rising up against oppression.

"The future is unwritten, which one we get is up to us."
