reminder: war criminals coming to toronto, meet and greet them

This Friday, May 22, join the Toronto Coalition to Stop the War for a public forum: Why George Bush should be charged with war crimes.

Speakers will include:

Michael Mandel, professor of international law, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, author of How America Gets Away With Murder: Illegal Wars, Collateral Damage, and Crimes Against Humanity,


Chuck Wiley, a 17-year veteran of the US military who refused to participate in the Iraq War, is currently seeking refuge in Canada, and is a member of the War Resisters Support Campaign,

among others.

Join a public forum to hear international law experts and civil liberties campaigners explain the myriad of crimes committed by the Bush administration, and to find out how Bush could formally be charged with war crimes in Canada. Also find out how other US leaders — including former US president Bill Clinton, who will appear with Bush on May 29 — could be charged with war crimes, too.

Public forum:
Friday, May 22 at 7:00 p.m.
Steelworkers' Hall
25 Cecil Street, Toronto

Then, next Friday, May 29, the day of the Bush-Clinton visit, join a city-wide rally to demand that Bush be charged and arrested for war crimes.

It's bad enough that Stephen Harper's Canada is not a haven for war resisters. Don't let it be a haven for war criminals!

Rally: Friday, May 29, 2009, 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Metro Toronto Convention Centre
255 Front Street, Toronto
