Taking Legal Action to Challenge U.S. Atrocities

We are a group of internationalist activists located in the United States and Canada, and we consider ourselves part of the anti-imperialist and anti-war movements throughout the world. We support the right of people and nations to build their own societies free from the terror of imperialist war and violence.

We are deeply concerned by the impact of U.S. sanctions on the peoples of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, and believe that the only way to defeat the United States’ unlawful sanctions regimes is to rise up collectively against them. The People’s Tribunal is an international effort to undermine sanctions and challenge U.S. imperialism. We have three goals:

  1. Build international consensus around the illegality of sanctions and against U.S.
    imperialism.
  2. Distinguish sanctions against Israel and South Africa from sanctions as a tool of
    imperialism (such as sanctions against Iran, Venezuela, Palestine, Syria, Cuba,
    Zimbabwe, etc.)
  3. Build an international anti-imperialist movement targeting the U.S.

We will use the tribunal as an organizing, political education, and legal tool. We have two legal objectives: to identify legal causes of action to deploy in international and U.S. courts, and to challenge both unilateral coercive measures (targeted sanctions) and multilateral coercive measures brought under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter. Our political objectives involve laying the groundwork for an international campaign against economic coercive measures, and using grassroots activism such as protests and direct actions to support the work of the tribunal.

All donations will go directly to the efforts of the investigation.
