Hey Mr. Cheney. Under Canadian Law: You’re a War Criminal

Vancouver Sept. 26. Cheney should be banned from entering Canada or arrested upon arrival


Reminder: THIS MONDAY 5:30PM – Protest War Criminal Dick Cheney
Monday, Sept. 26 at 5:30pm
Outside the ‘Vancouver Club’ at 915 W. Hastings

The misnamed ‘Bon Mot Book Club’ in Vancouver is hosting war criminal and unrepentant torture and war advocate Dick Cheney at the Vancouver Club on Sept. 26.

Under international and Canadian law, Cheney should be banned from entering the country or arrested upon arrival.

It is outrageous that the Harper government, which has on a number of occasions banned anti-war speakers and other social justice activists from entering Canada , would allow this war criminal to enter Canada to promote his new book.
Join us in giving Cheney the welcome he deserves. Organized by the StopWar Coalition.

*Accountability for Torture: George W. Bush Visits BC*
*A Panel Discussion*
Thursday, September 29, 2011
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
UBC Robson Square
800 Robson St, Room c-180 (Enter by the ice rink)
Vancouver, BC

In his memoir, former U.S. president George W. Bush admits that when he was asked if men in U.S. custody should be waterboarded, he replied “Damn, right.” Despite admitting that he authorized torture, Bush has not been investigated or held accountable for his actions in the United States – or by any judicial body elsewhere. Bush has enjoyed global impunity for his
role in the torture of detainees held in Guantánamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram and secret “black sites.”
Bush is scheduled to speak in Surrey , B.C. on October 20th. Is there a case against Bush for torture? Should Canada investigate him? Will Canada prosecute Bush for torture?

Please join us for an expert panel to discuss Bush’s responsibility for torture in the “war on terror” and the options for accountability in Canada .
