War Criminal Conference & Exhibition

Tun Dr. Mahathir’s assistant, Sufi, texted and emailed me the press-release on War Criminal Conference and Exhibition at PWTC from 28 October to 31 October 2009. 

In this cynical world we are living in, it is good, if a little necessary, to get in touch with humanity. War, by any other names, is a theft from hungry children and women. See you there? 

Here’s the press-release, in verbatim: 

PRESS RELEASE FOR THE WAR CRIMINAL CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION FROM 28TH

OCTOBER TO 31ST OCTOBER 2009.

————————————————————————————————————–

When the United States of America launched its “War on Terror” the

world was divided – some feeling it was justified given the September

11 terror attacks on the US soil. Others were apprehensive and felt

the chill of fear that the very force combatting terror will end up

being the very terror itself.

It has been eight years since the War on Terror was launched and the

visible casualties were Afghanistan and Iraq, both invaded by the US

and its allies.

These invasions, especially on Iraq were justified by the US and its

allies on false premise.

The leaders of the US and Britain lied to their people when they

wanted to rally support from their people, claiming that Iraq was in

possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) which could be

launched and caused devastation to their countries within 45 minutes.

Within a couple of months after the invasion of Iraq, the lies began

unravelling and it was proven that there were never any WMDs and Iraq

was targetted because it was a reservoir of oil.

While Iraq was devastated and Iraqis dead and dying, the perpetrators

continued unabashedly to annihilate the sovereign nation and its

people, torturing prisoners with methods unimagined even by the evil

mind.

It is against this backdrop the Perdana Global Peace Organisation

(PGPO) and Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War (KLFCW) is

holding the War Criminal Conference and Exhibition from the 28th of

October to the 31st of October, 2009 at the Putra World Trade Centre

(PWTC).

On the 28th and 29th, the PGPO will be holding a conference which will

see renowned speakers with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad delivering the

keynote address on the first day.

Other speakers will include fiery British MP George Galloway, the

indomitable former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, former United

Nations assistant secretary-generals Hans Von Sponeck and Dennis

Halliday and anti-war economist Prof. Michel Chossudovsky.

On the 30th and 31st the War Crimes Commission and Tribunal will be

convened to hear testimonials from victims of torture following the

invasion of Iraq.

Throughout the four days, an exhibition on the carnage of war and

torture committed by the forces which invaded Iraq.

It is hoped that the conference and exhibition will provide greater

insights to the audience the hypocrisy of the perpetrators of the war

who hide behind the cloak of justice and democracy to camouflage their

real intentions.
