Illegal Wars and your Taxes!

Campaign to Make Wars History

If you are tax payer in the UK then you are breaking International and UK Law, by supporting the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Given the existence of the International Criminal Court Act 2001, and in particluar, sections 51 and 52 of that act the prosecution of the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, by UK Military at the behest of UK Government, is an act of genocide and a war-crime under English Law.

International Criminal Court Act 2001 : The text

International Criminal Court Act 2001 : Section 51,52

Under these same statutes, it is also a war-crime to assist in any way the continued commission of these crimes.

Thus the paying of taxes, or that proportion of taxes which goes towards supporting that contuinued military activity or any infrastructure that allows those military activities to continue, including the parliamentary offices, staff and infrastructure of all parliamentarians who support the wars, is also a criminal offence as outlined by the above mentioned laws, which are ratified English, Welsh Law.

Not many people know this. But then not many people are paying attention. Certainly the mainstreammedia are not reporting this.

Spread the word.

It is possible to access the evidence, as the lovely people behind The Campaign to Make Wars History have collated and prepared all the evidence (see the videos below) so that YOU can then present it to your local police station, requesting that they investigate the war crime which you are reporting. I am at present doing just that, and looking for people from my own area to accompany me. The more the merrier! If I can get one presentation a day for the next year, great.

My local MP is Gareth Thompson, who has strongly supported the Government line on the Iraq War, and I will be naming him in particular.

As a journalist, I pride myself on being media savvy. Unfortunately, like everyone else, I have to scour the internet to by-pass the mainstream media and sometimes miss stuff.

So I wish to now report the press conference held with John McDonnell MP and members of the Campaign to Make War History who briefed MPs and the media on allegations of war crimes committed against the people of Iraq by Britain's former Prime Minister and the former Attorney General.

Officers from Scotland Yard have started a criminal investigation into the deaths of Iraqi citizens killed during the armed invasion and occupation of Iraq.

The Metropolitan Police are also acting in response to crimes reported by peace activists from We Are Change UK and The Campaign to Make War History. In an unprecedented step, the case was handed to the War Crimes division of the Counter Terrorism branch who are now investigating allegations of 14 criminal offences committed by Tony Blair, Lord Goldsmith and others. The offences are under the International Criminal Court Act 2001, which came into effect under English common law, just two days before 9/11.

Evidence was provided to the police relating to the crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and conduct ancillary to these crimes under Sections 51 and 52 of The International Criminal Court Act 2001.• a crime against peace and complicity in a crime against peace under Articles 6 and 7 of The Nuremburg Principles.• murder, incitement to murder and conspiracy to murder under the Offences Against the Person Act 1861.• conspiracy to commit genocide, a crime against humanity and war crimes under the Criminal Law Act.
