President Obama, Don't Become Complicit in Their Crimes!

01-02-2009 21:01

On Thursday, January 29th, I sent President Obama this message:

"Mr. President: The Bush Administration lied to the people in pursuit of war. As a result, at least one million Iraqis and thousands of U.S. soldiers are dead. Thousands more are maimed. The stature of the U.S. is severely damaged. The U.S. Constitution is in shreds after signing statements, wiretaps, and torture. Your obligation is to investigate and bring to justice those who violated U.S. and international law, such as the torture treaty. Failure to do so makes you complicit in their crimes."

Picket of the UKBA in Cardiff

On Thursday 29th January 2009, around 25 people braved the freezing cold conditions to hold a picket for about 2 hours outside the UK Border Agency at 31-33 Newport Road, Cardiff. These offices are where decisions are made about who gets detained, deported or in rarer cases granted leave to remain. ID cards are issued here for non-EU students and spouses and immigration 'snatch squads' operate from this address. This is also the local reporting office, where asylum applicants must 'sign on' as part of the conditions of their continued residence in the UK and then sometimes are detained prior to deportation. It is the face of Britain's racist immigration policies right here on our doorstep.
