George W. Bush has his back to the wall. He just cancelled a speech in Switzerland due to fear of mass protests and his arrest for authorizing the torture of detainees at Guantánamo Bay.

Bush is afraid of another Pinochet incident. In 1998, late Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet was arrested in London on a warrant from Spain for multiple crimes committed during his brutal, bloody reign.

Human rights activists all over the world have pledged to seek arrest warrants wherever Bush travels outside the United States. Already, legal proceedings in Spain and Germany target Bush and his henchmen for their crimes. Bush cannot hide, just like Pinochet couldn’t.

We owe the people of Switzerland, Spain and Germany a debt of gratitude for their steadfastness and continued activity to bring Bush to justice. We can do no less.

This is truly a global movement for accountability and justice. The American people have a special responsibility to continue to expose Bush and keep the pressure on.

Bush and Cheney were hoping that the outrage against them would die, but it never will.

We in the IndictBushNow movement are committed to ensure that Bush will be pursued wherever he goes for his war crimes, torture policies and attacks on civil rights and civil liberties. We demand justice.
