On June 10, 2000, the International Action Center is holding a day-long International Tribunal on U.S./NATO War Crimes Against Yugoslavia. This is the one-year anniversary of NATO's occupation of Kosovo. The initial hearing last July 31 in NY was followed by similar hearings in a dozen U.S. cities and in Belgrade, Buenas Aires, Oslo, Novi Sad, Berlin, Rome, Vienna, Moscow, Kiev, Sydney, and Tokyo. At a mass peoples tribunal in Athens last fall, 10,000 people found Clinton guilty of war crimes.

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark will prosecute U.S. and NATO leaders for 19 charges of war crimes, crimes against peace, and crimes against humanity. International expert witnesses will present testimony. A distinguished international panel of judges will hear the case.
