Attempted arrest of Tony Blair for war crimes

This video says about itself:

Taking images from the web on Iraq and Guantanamo Bay I have put together a message for Tony Blair & George Bush set to Peter Gabriel’s political prisoner song “Wallflower”.

From the Daily Telegraph (UK) (2-23-10):

Irish reporter tries to place Tony Blair under citizen’s arrest for ‘war crimes

An Irish journalist tried to place Tony Blair under citizen’s arrest for war crimes on Tuesday night during a visit by the former prime minister to the European Parliament.

David Cronin, a reporter for the Inter Press Service news agency and a regular commentator for The Guardiangium, placed his hand on Mr Blair‘s arm and said: “This is a citizens’ arrest. You are guilty of war crimes.”

Mr Blair, speaking to MEPs about his role as EU and US envoy to the Middle East, momentarily flinched at the contact but was saved by a bodyguard who intervened to push the Irish journalist away.

Mr Cronin said that his intention had been to invite Mr Blair to accompany him to the nearest Belgian police station to be charged for breaches of international law over his part in the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

It is the second attempted arrest of Mr Blair. Grace McCann, an anti-war protester, was arrested in January after trying to collar the former Prime Minister following his testimony before the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war.

    Four fire engines were dispatched to the 17th-century South Pavilion in Wotton Underwood on Saturday morning after the smoke alarm was triggered.

    A spokesman for the former prime minister said because the property was a Grade 1 listed building, the alarm was automatically connected to the local fire station.
