CHARGESHEET AGAINST GEORGE W. BUSH

We the People of India and the World -

Drawing upon all the great traditions of justice, fairness and plain
decency evolved in the course of human history;

Upholding the right to life and its perpetuation in all its forms
everywhere;

Resisting with all our might the ongoing assault on human rights,
values and liberties by the forces of capital, racism and authoritarianism;
and

Affirming the overwhelming need for a global uprising against the
relentless march of US militarism across Planet Earth;

Hereby charge George W. Bush, the US Government he represents and all
its allies around the world with the following (among countless others)
crimes against humanity -:

- Attempting to restore the era of Western colonial rule over the world
through devastating violence and systematic looting of resources of
weaker nations;

- Violating and indeed summarily rejecting all known international laws
governing relations between countries of the world;

- Planning, preparing, and waging the supreme crime of a war of
aggression in contravention of the United Nations Charter and the Nuremberg
Principles.

- Murdering in cold blood over 200,000 citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan
in the first phase of this project of global recolonisation;

- Targeting civilian populations through indiscriminate use of
violence, systematic destruction of infrastructure and collective punishment of
cities and towns;

- Using illegal weapons including napalm, depleted uranium, cluster and
white phosphorus bombs against both civilian and combatants in
violation of the Geneva Conventions;

- Using deadly violence against peaceful protestors in the occupied
countries;

- Subjecting Iraqi and Afghani soldiers and civilians to torture and
cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment;

- Obstructing the right to information, in particular through
assassination of journalists and deliberate military targeting of media
facilities;

- Willfully devastating the environment, including through use of
radioactive material with potential to harm all life forms for centuries to
come;

- Planning the use of nuclear weapons against adversaries such as Iran
in the near future;

- Bribing or bullying developing country governments, such as in India,
to become partners in its global crimes;

- Emerging as the greatest threat to global peace, security and human
well being since the advent of the Nazism under Adolf Hitler.

We solemnly pledge that we will not forget, forgive or rest till we
bring the perpetrators of these enormous crimes to justice no matter how
long it takes or what efforts it calls for.

Thanks a lot for your concerns.

This is the first time I have been able to log on to the blogger.com in weeks. I have been gettting your comments through email :)

Renegade,

Bush visited Pakistan and India in the same trip. Altough the list is constructed in India, it is of much relevance in Pakistan as well.

I would update my blog as soon as I get some time on my hands.

In Solidarity
