At a time when Bush Administration actions - from Iraq, to torture, to global warming and Hurricane Katrina - have fanned global outrage and widely raised the issue of crimes against humanity, the Commission of Inquiry will convene its final session and present witnesses, experts, and documentary evidence on each of five indictments:

1) Wars of Aggression, particular reference to Iraq and Afghanistan; 2) Torture and Indefinite Detention; 3) Destruction of the Global Environment, particular reference to systematic policies contributing to the effects of global warming; 4) Attacks on Global Public Health and Reproductive Rights, particular reference to the genocidal effects of forcing international agencies to promote "abstinence only" in the midst of a global AIDS epidemic; and 5) Bush Administration's response to Hurricane Katrina.



The jury of conscience will then consider the evidence and deliver its opinion on each count of the indictments.



Initiated by: the Not In Our Name Statement of Conscience, with the support of the Center for Constitutional Rights, the National Lawyers Guild, and many other individuals and organizations (see Charter http://www.bushcommission.org/call-charter.htm )



When the possibility of far-reaching war crimes and crimes against humanity exists, people of conscience have a solemn responsibility to inquire into the nature and scope of these acts and to determine if they do in fact rise to the level of war crimes and crimes against humanity...The holding of this tribunal will frame and fuel a discussion that is urgently needed in the United States: Is the administration of George W. Bush guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity?

– Commission Charter

An enormously important project which should be given massive support, both national and internationally, and which could make a powerful impact on the course of events.

– South African poet Dennis Brutus, member of the jury of conscience

Please remember what each person under electromagnetic torture is going through in the United States.

We are suffering terribly from microwaves and such hitting our bodies.
