U.S./NATO guilty in Los Angeles

Some 250 people filled a room in Los Angeles Nov. 14 to participate in a hearing of the Independent Commission of Inquiry to Investigate U.S./NATO War Crimes Against the People of Yugoslavia. Prominent speakers from the United States and Canada came to speak of the horror of the bombings and the genocidal nature of the sanctions against Yugoslavia.

Ruba Fakhoury, International Action Center-San Diego, talked of the many and various violations of international law that took place as the United States bombarded Yugoslavia. Spomenka Zeljkovic, American-Serbian Association for Peace, showed videotaped footage of the bombings' destruction of power plants, bridges, schools, and residential areas, killing thousands of innocent people.

Sonali Kolhatkar, anti-war activist and local IAC member, showed irrefutable and scientifically based evidence of the dangers of depleted uranium and how the long-term effects of these weapons will seriously undermine the health of tens of thousands of people, including U.S. soldiers.

Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, professor at the University of Ottawa and co-author of "NATO in the Balkans," traced the legacy of the main conspirators from both the U.S. camp and that of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army.

Ramsey Clark, former U.S. attorney general, described the various U.S. bombardments and invasions of sovereign countries since World War II.

Hearings on the same topic were held Nov. 13 in San Francisco, and in Detroit and Ann Arbor, Mich., also on Nov. 13.
