Press Conference and Rally for Splitting the Sky: March 24th, 2009


Tue. March 24, 7 pm – 9 pm

Calgary Area Outdoor Council

1111 Memorial Dr. NW

On Tuesday, March 17, Splitting the Sky, a Mohawk activist from Six Nations now residing in Chase, BC, evoked international law and the Canada War Crimes Act by asking the RCMP to arrest ex-US-president G.W. Bush for crimes against humanity as he spoke at the Telus Convention Centre in downtown Calgary.

When police refused his demand to uphold the law, Splitting the Sky attempted to carry out a citizen’s arrest of Bush, pushing his way through the police line with his hands over his head yelling, “I am not touching anyone.” He was arrested and beaten, sustaining a partial concussion and massive hernia. Splitting the Sky was charged with assault and released on $500 bail after being held in jail for 24 hours.

Splitting the Sky is charged with three counts of assault and obstruction of justice. He must return to Calgary court on March 25th at 9:30 a.m. He plans to launch a legal campaign to indict the RCMP, Mayor of Calgary and others for complicity in war crimes for allowing Bush to enter without arresting him.

On Tuesday, March 24, Splitting the Sky will speak in Calgary about his arrest and pending trial, focusing on his campaign to draw international attention to the need for indicting and arresting G.W. Bush for crimes against humanity.
