Inauguration Day Protest

Raw Story

A group calling itself "Arrest Bush 2009" has announced its intention to hold a "Yes We Can Arrest Bush" event in front of the FBI Building in Washington, DC during the Inaugural Parade.

Arrest Bush 2009, which is sponsored by the Washington Peace Center, After Downing Street, and Shoes For Bush, is demanding that Bush be arrested for war crimes and for lying to the American people.

According to the press release from Arrest Bush 2009, "We call for the arrest of George W. Bush for instigating war against a sovereign nation that posed no threat, wanton attacks on civilian populations, use of torture, and violations of the U.N. Charter. We call for the arrest of George W. Bush for lying to Congress and the American people about the reasons for invading Iraq, for the deaths of US service members and Iraqi civilians, and for the abuse of the United States Constitution."

Let's hope this turns into something even the media can't ignore.

Note to the new Prez: If you want to show the world that the U.S. means business about restoring rule of law and condemning war crimes, nothing will do it better than Bush et al standing very public trial.
