The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration will hold its second session of hearings on January 20-22, 2006. This session will continue the truly historic work of forging a powerful, comprehensive, and highly public case documenting what the Bush regime is doing to the people of the world.
The Commissions successful first session was held in New York on October 21-22 before a distinguished panel of jurists. Experts from the fields of law, diplomacy, environment, history, global health and reproductive rights came together with witnesses from flooded New Orleans, the war zones of Iraq and immigration jails of the U.S. Hundreds of people heard penetrating exposures of the Bush regimes wars of aggression, global apparatus of torture and indefinite detention, suppression of scientific research and warnings of global warming, and genocidal sabotage of efforts to stem the AIDS pandemic. Passionate and painful eyewitness accounts highlighted the special hearing into the Bush administrations criminal actions before, during and after the Katrina disaster.
Much of the remarkable testimony from the first session is available online at www.bushcommission.org.
The second session will present all the witnesses, experts, and documentary evidence on the indictments against the Bush Administration. The jury of conscience will consider the evidence and deliver its opinion on each indictment. Their final findings are expected to be released around the time of the Presidents State of the Union Address and the nationwide demonstrations called by The World Cant Wait! Drive Out the Bush Regime!
