Ms. McKinney has been invited to Calgary to serve as a witness in a trial beginning on March 8. The trial emanates from the Crown’s criminal charge against Mohawk activist, Splitting The Sky, for obstruction of justice in his attempt to conduct a citizen’s arrest of the former US president, George W. Bush. Credibly-accused war criminal George Bush addressed a business audience at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary. Ms. McKinney will comment on the case some have dubbed
Splitting The Sky versus George W. BushMs. McKinney will help introduce and contribute to a people’s juridical process aimed at articulating a new legal protocol to be known as
The Calgary PrinciplesIn the tradition of the Nuremberg Principles, the Calgary Principles will address the rampant criminality that tends to immunize from criminal prosecutions those who commit the highest order of international crime. Among those who will also contribute to the proceedings will be Splitting The Sky and Anthony J. Hall, Professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge.
