Why a Tribunal?
"They carried out a campaign of terror and genocide" - displaced survivor
The charges are clear against the United States government by the people of New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast region displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. On August 29th through September 2nd, 2005, the world witnessed the monumental failure of the U.S. government to protect and respect the lives of the working people, the majority of whom were African-American and poor. This failure is the direct result of the national (race), class
Uh... Tinfoil hat time?
The grand goals of the "tribunal":
-Hold the US government accountable for its crimes against humanity;
-Demand financial restitution and justice for the Survivors of Katrina and Rita;
-Advance the Katrina-Rita reconstruction movement;
-Build a global campaign against the US government's program of ethnic cleansing;
-Demand that the US government adhere to UN guidelines on Internally Displaced Persons.
WTF: Program of ethic cleansing?
Guess who's behind this little circus of madness:
Katrina Survivors, Cynthia McKinney & Advocates demand justice through International Tribunal
