Why We MUST Protest:
Henry Kissinger: Kissinger is an unrepentant
warmonger who bears responsibility for much bloodshed throughout the world. His crimes on behalf of the U.S. government against millions of poor and innocent people are too many to mention in one e-mail. A brief synopsis:
Vietnam & Cambodia: During his tenure as U.S. National Security Advisor, and later as Secretary of State, Kissinger was the architect of Nixon's war on Vietnam; he oversaw the secret bombing of Cambodia.
Chile: Kissinger oversaw the CIA-assisted coup, which ousted the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende and installed the murderous dictator Augusto Pinochet.
East Timor: Kissinger and Gerald Ford gave Indonesia the green-light to invade East Timor in 1975, resulting in the massacre of 200,000 East Timorese (over 1/3 of the population).
The list goes on and on.
Shimon Peres: Former Israeli Prime Minister and current Foreign Minister in the Sharon government, Shimon Peres supports (and has always supported) Israel's brutal and illegal occupation of Palestinian land and suppression and murder of Palestinian people. Like Kissinger, Peres is a war criminal.
The Butcher of Qana: While Prime Minister in 1996, Peres masterminded a massive Israeli bombing campaign in Lebanon, including the bombing of a UN peacekeeping base in the village of Qana where several hundred Palestinian refugees took shelter. The Israeli bombs massacred 102 Palestinians and injured more than 120 others.
