ICC: We Charge War Crimes And Crimes Against Humanity

On January 25, 2014, a distinguished panel of international Jurists will hear the people's prosecutors and testimony on war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the United States, Great Britain, France, Italy, Canada and NATO allies.

The 2nd International People's Tribunal will be held at Columbia University Law School, 435 West 116th Street, off Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY at 12:00 PM.

The eminent panel of judges include Mr. Courtenay Griffiths, QC [Queen's Counsel of UK], who has appeared before the Special Court for Sierra Leone representing President Charles Taylor. Mr. Lennox Hinds, Esq.,  has appeared before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. And Ms. Ashanti Chimurenga, Esq., has appeared before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

The Jurists will update the criminal indictment delivered to the International Criminal Court [ICC] in The Hague by the Pan African Solidarity Hague Committee, organized by the December 12th Movement International Secretariat in June 2012. The original People's Tribunal held at Columbia Law School in January 2012, focused on human rights abuses against Libya, Cote d'Ivoire, Zimbabwe, Haiti, and Black people in the United States.

The Jurists will hear developments in these nations and critique the response of the ICC to the indictment to date. The people's prosecutors will also investigate the ICC's collaboration in the West's re-colonization of Africa and African people.

"Malcolm X taught us that our struggle is not only on a local level or a national level. Ours is an international struggle inextricably tied to African people on the continent and the Diaspora.  We are committed to exposing western political and economic racism and all of its inhuman atrocities. This 2nd International People's Tribunal will put the ICC itself on trial," said Roger Wareham, Esq., Secretary General of the International Association Against Torture (IAAT-AICT).

Sponsors are the December 12th Movement International Secretariat, International Association Against Torture, Pan African Solidarity Hague Committee, and Africans Helping Africans.
