This Sounds Like a Great Idea to Me.
As George Bush made his appearance and speech today at the United Nations in NYC, 1,000 people issued a citizen’s arrest warrant against him for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The day began with twelve separate feeder marches converging from across the city, consisting of perhaps several hundred protesters. The people carried 20 large coffins with them and marched from all five boroughs toward Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza and the UN Building where Bush was speaking. The feeder marches were organized by Arrest Cheney First, the War Resister’s League, Witness Against Torture, Movement for a Democratic Society (MDS-NYC) and others.
