Citizen's Arrest of Alleged War Criminal George W. Bush in Canada


www.globalresearch.ca

Splitting the Sky, indigenous activist, seized by security forces in Canada last year when he attempted to make a citizen's arrest of George W. Bush will have his day in court on Monday, March 8th. According to Professor Anthony J. Hall, this case will demonstrate whether Canada is ruled by law or fear and highlight the need for new principles, the Calgary Principles to amend the victor's justice of the Nuremberg Principles, in light of the new impunities for high level crimes against humanity and the Earth in this era, and the need to protect and honor civil resistance to those high crimes.

Prior to Bush’s visit, the Canadian group Lawyers Against the War asked Canadian officials to bar entry or try Bush for his suspected crimes since Canadian Law prohibits “people suspected of any involvement in torture or other war crimes and crimes against humanity from entering Canada for any period and for any purpose. The most recent report of the War Crimes Program affirms the necessity of barring war crimes suspects from Canada: ‘The most effective way to deny safe haven to people involved or complicit in war crimes or crimes against humanity is to prevent them from coming to Canada.’”

Lawyers Against the War and protestors implored the government to do their duty and arrest Bush. “Dac” was carrying papers detailing the evidence against George W. Bush, which he had planned to serve him with on behalf of the victims and the people of the world, and he raised his hands to show that he was “non-violent.” Dac was then thrown down, stomped on, kicked, handcuffed and led off to be brutalized in a Calgary jail.


I will be closely watching his trial as the outcome may affect any future visit of Bush to foreign countries. Bravo!! to this many..no matter how much one appreciates him it's not enough. The article states it accurately

“Dac” has consciously taken a leadership role to politically challenge the powerful forces that dominate the North American continent. Brutally arrested for his action, he earned his “day in court” to voice not only his defense, but “to highlight the hypocrisy and criminality of the Canadian government for allowing Bush into Canada, and to firmly establish the legal defense of ‘civil resistance’, the duty of citizens to act when our governments and their agents are derelict in their duty. This will be very useful in the future to rein these criminals in.”

The article never did say what he is accused of - just what they were accusing GW of. Any idea?

Just for being GW apparently.

I like how they claim he is a criminal, when no valid court has declared him that - apparently the OP has never heard of innocent until proven guilty and does not agree with it anyway!

Do you NEVER read what you are responding to?

He didn't ask what GWB was being accused of. He asked what the activist was being accused of. GWB is a war criminal, endorsed torture along with Dick Cheney, etc.

As the OP said, the defendant has evidence that George W. Bush is a war criminal, and again, the OP said that any war criminal that attempts to enter Canada will be arrested.

Although I am quite sure that nothing will come out of this case... It will nonetheless be interesting to watch, and I will keep a shred of hope that this turns out to be the first time george bush is officially called a war criminal by western-court.

In your fantasy world perhaps, however in the real world courts decide guilt or innocence - and we can see how you hate that fact!

Unfortunantly in this real world half the courts are too corrupt and the other half are too scared to bring this man to justice.

George Bush is only a War Criminal because he became the leader of the United States on unpopular terns initially, which started the 'hate GWB' binge that everyone seems to love to OD on. He is not a war criminal until he is proven guilty in a high court of law, which will never happen. And why is that? Because he is not a war criminal. He just went to war.

Why he went to war is debatable, and the torturing of alleged terrorists is pretty convicting, but no one has done so in a court of law. So to all of you war criminal whiners out there, keep it to yourself until he shows up in court.

Good luck getting him there. It isn't like Nuremberg. GWB hasn't lost a war.

Obama will though.

Is he a war criminal too? No, he is a socialist.


People just cannot be pleased. Hate all authority. Anarchy will please you, no? Probably not, you would complain about something else I wager.

Anyway, I would like to see how this turns out for him in the end. The activist, and GWB.

Sadly, they are going to have to prove, tha afghanistan war was orchestrated maliscously and illegaly. Thier going to have to prove 9/11 was totaly masterminded. their going to have to prove,bush and cheney helped pave the way, for a socialist/communist order.
you cannot just point the finger at someone, and say guilty, even though you know that person(s) is guilty beyond a doubt. Its all about evidence.
I am not taking bush's side, ide love to see him hang. I firmly belive he orchestrated 9/11, and afghansitan. but, without evidence, its like convicting an innocent person. Of couse, that dosnt mean yuo cannot boo ro shame that person from ever coming back to town again

I'm pretty sure this is against the torture of detained alleged terrorists and not the 9/11 truth movement, although i could be mistaken.

The Nazis during WW2 got away with it for a while too.

Just because our own fascist government doesn't try and convict him doesn't mean it won't happen down the road. Watch out!


Btw, when are you planning to start reading the posts you respond to? I notice it didn't even phase you that you completely misread that post. You must have a real tolerance for reading huh?

His illegal war broke the geneva convention. The contracts he signed are crimes and his signature no less an admission of guilt than the very same procedure that tried nazi war criminals at the nurmeburg trials.

Futhermore, using depleted uranium has already been declared by the UN a weapon of mass destruction.

Legally, anyone who sees him and does not perform a citizens arrest is in violation of international law.

International law operates as regular criminal law. This means, that failure to understand the law is not an excuse, and that crimes are committed not when a judge deams they are, but when they are thought of even before anyone attempts to commit them, with or without witnesses, and irregardless of whether a judge fires the cannon of justice correctly or misfires it. The crime is a crime in it formation. And he is a war criminal.

It is everyones duty to bring him to justice.

He is not a war criminal, he just went to war


Thats a very fine line.

I mean, lets say I was the leader of Australia, and I launched a war on, New Zealand.
So long as I presented my evidence that New Zealand was responsible for.. over populating the sheep population in Australia,
so long as I only used, regular munitions, and so long as I only locked up and waterboarded new zealanders who killed my invading soldiers...

Is that 'just a war' not a 'war crime' ?

The problem in todays world, or more so in this particular instance, is the man the Canadians are accusing of being a war criminal, has single handedly shifted the line to which a war criminal is based on.

Just because GW Bush and Cheney say they arent war criminals, and cant be prosecuted as such means as much as a fart in the wind.

If Hitler had of said in 1944 he wasnt a war criminal and cant be convicted as one, do you really think the Allies WOULDNT of pushed ahead with nuremburg?

Lets face it, the only reason GW isnt hanging in gallows with dick by his side, is because he was the American President, had he of been the president of some 3rd world country, he would of been taken out the back and shot after 911.

Wow, how do kids always manage to bring Obama into the discussion? Some people are borderline obsessive. Stop watching FAUX!

Care to point out exactly which convention/paragraph his war broke?
en.wikipedia.org...

Exactly which contracts are you on about?


Futhermore, using depleted uranium has already been declared by the UN a weapon of mass destruction.


When and exactly did the UN declare that, which resolution was it done under?


Legally, anyone who sees him and does not perform a citizens arrest is in violation of international law.


Exactly which "international law" would that be exactly?


and that crimes are committed not when a judge deams they are, but when they are thought of


so we now have thought crimes, just thinking something can make you guilty....


And he is a war criminal.


So when and in which court was he convicted?
Exactly what has he been convicted of?

If you had the ability to read between the lines you would have noticed that I was making fun of those who hate on all things American, especially American leaders.

I don't watch MSM any more than you do.

It should not be forgotten that Bush did not go it alone. He had authority from Congress and, at least at that time, the approval of the majority of the American people. We were definitely going in somewhere. I remember 2001 very well. The American people wanted blood. I think this does bring Obama into the fold if we are discussing war crimes, because he continues the war, again with Congress approval, albeit a less than enthusiastic approval. I do not think the current administration could allow any war crimes prosecutions to go forward because of the duplicity of continuing to wage a war that may be labeled illegal. Just my two cents.
