“Cheney must be arrested for War Crimes and Torture”
Cheney and Rumsfeld joke about torture at Washington Plaza Hotel event
Protesters outside the Vancouver Club.
When Dick Cheney speaks in Toronto on October 31 he will be confronted
by people from Canada and the United States demanding that the Canadian
government arrest and prosecute him for torture and other crimes.
People throughout Canada are demanding that the Canadian government
either bar Cheney or arrest him should he follow through with his plans
to be a keynote speaker at an upcoming conference in Toronto. They are
insisting that Canadian and international law require that Cheney be
arrested if he comes to Canada.
Cheney canceled a similar speaking engagement last April in Toronto
because he feared the mobilization of the people. When Cheney was
speaking months earlier in Vancouver he was confronted by angry
demonstrators demanding that he be prosecuted.
Thousands of people were tortured based on Cheney's and Bush’s
instructions to the CIA and military. Kidnappings, renditions, torture
and assassinations were sanctioned by Bush and Cheney. Hundreds of
thousands of Iraqis died needlessly and millions became refugees. Tens
of thousands of U.S. service members suffered life-changing injuries and
more than 5,000 were killed..
Cheney jokes about torture
Cheney is a despicable character. He appeared on October 7, 2013, at the
Plaza Hotel with Donald Rumsfeld in Washington, D.C., where the two of
them swapped torture jokes from the podium, with Rumsfeld quipping that
Cheney had even been waterboarding fish.
These obscene displays about their crimes are an affront to humanity.
It is critical that we continue to act together to demand government
Bush and Cheney cannot go anywhere in the United States or around the
world without be challenged by this grassroots movement that is
demanding that high officials who commit criminal acts be arrested and
The Indict Bush Now movement is urging all of its
supporters and friends who can to join or support the October 31
demonstration in Toronto. The protest will begin at 11:30am at the Metro
Toronto Convention Center, 255 Front St. W - Toronto, Canada.
The Indict Bush Now movement is also joining with thousands of people
this Saturday, October 26 in a march on the U.S. Capital demanding that
the government dismantle the secret spying program against the people of
the United States and the world. October 26 is the 12th anniversary of Bush signing the Patriot Act
that has been used to create a surveillance state that is destroying
basic personal freedoms and the right to privacy. Bush and Cheney
started these programs but We The People can stop them.
But we must act. Join us this Saturday at 11:30 am at Columbus Circle
in front of Union Station in downtown Washington, D.C.
