Demonstration against war profiteer Tony Blair

This video is called Libya – oh how Britain and Tony Blair loved to sell it arms when Gadaffi ruled.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

US activists heckle Blair with cries of ‘war criminal

Monday 21 May 2012

Tony Blair was interrupted on Sunday by US campaigners shouting “warmonger” and “criminal” during a graduation day speech at a private college in Maine.

The former British prime minister was telling 400 Colby College graduates and guests that “free enterprise and fair play

Blair meaning himself, getting rich in oil money from his Iraq war?

are humanity’s best hope for the future” when protesters hoisted placards emblazoned with slogans such as “Globalisation kills,” “Occupation isn’t pretty,” and “Bring our war $$ home.”

Code Pink activist Lisa Savage shouted: “Tony Blair is a war criminal. He should be arrested. He lied us into war in Iraq. He’s a war criminal.”

She was promptly hauled off by police with several other Code Pink activists and Occupy activist Lawrence Reichard after he continued to call out “war criminal.”

Other protesters remained standing silently with the placards.

Mr Reichard was released later in the day after posting a $250 (£158) unsecured bail. He faces a charge of disorderly conduct.

Britain: The government was ordered on Monday to publish parts of a 2003 phonecall between Tony Blair and US president George Bush which could shed light on the build-up to the Iraq war: here.
