Every day that the war and occupation in Iraq continue, Iraqi civilians are killed, injured, denied civil liberties, jailed, abused and tortured by the occupation forces while their basic services and economy are deteriorating. Meanwhile, our sons and daughters are being killed and maimed.

Under the phony "transfer of power," business as usual will continues with U.S. troops occupying Iraq, the construction of 14 permanent U.S. military bases, the funneling of oil revenues to the occupiers, the continuing torture and abuse of innocent Iraqis, the denial of democratic rights, and a failing infrastructure and qualify of life for the women, men and children.

The people of the world know that it is those in the highest echelons of the U.S. government who are responsible for the atrocities, torture, deaths, and war crimes in Iraq.

We have a responsibility to hold this administration accountable for the past and continuing horrors of the war and occupation.

Join in the War Crimes Tribunal being organized by the International Action Center on Thursday, August 26th, just prior to the Republican National Convention in New York City. This historic undertaking will investigate how the Bush and Blair Administrations violated international law and basic human rights by instigating an aggressive war against the Iraqi people, then instituting a brutal occupation, now continuing under the phony "transfer of power." Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark will draft the indictment, listing the charges against George W. Bush and his criminal administration.

We invite you to participate, to help organize for this major international undertaking, and to bring friends, family, co-workers, members of your organizations, unions, and from your campuses and communities.

Eyewitnesses from Iraq, delegations from over twelve countries, expert witnesses, UN officials, and military resisters, will testify.

The Tribunal will investigate attacks against Iraq civilians, the use of napalm, cluster bombs, and depleted uranium weapons, the illegal incarceration and torture of civilians at Abu Ghraib prison and elsewhere, war profiteering and the initiation of the war itself. It will show culpability for the deteriorating Iraqi economy, infrastructure and social services in Iraq. And it will demonstrate for all to see violations of the Geneva Convention, the Nuremberg Principles, and the UN Charter.

A Program Journal is planned for the Tribunal. It will document the Bush Administration's crimes and will serve as an informative and lasting commemoration of the Tribunal; it will be a historic record of the August 26 Tribunal--in which your voice can be heard!

We urge you to be a part of the historic Tribunal Program Journal by taking out a display ad, listing your name as a Sponsor or Friend so you can be included, or making a direct donation towards the costs of this event--donations of all sizes are appreciated. The deadline for receiving display ad copy is Tuesday, August 10.

Journal ads can be political statements, solidarity messages, memorial tributes to loved ones, progressive bookstore or website ads. Submissions by anti-war, community, labor, student, religious, legal, artists, writers, and other organizations are welcome. Commercial ads can be sent in as well.

You can email your journal name listing or display ad copy to journal@peoplejudgebush.org .

Tens of Thousands of copies of this Program Journal will be distributed to Tribunal participants, members of the media, elected officials, activists, religious, labor, legal and academic institutions.

Journals will be given out to the activists from all over the country who will converge in New York City in late August to protest the administration's policies of war and occupation at the Republican National Convention.

The Journal will also serve as a Resource Field Guide to these protests, with maps, listings of events, and more information of use to the demonstrators.
