Rights Lawyers Threaten

Legal Action over Torture

Former President George W. Bush has been forced to cancel a planned trip to Switzerland after human rights attorneys threatened to take legal action against him for sanctioning the use of torture. The Center for Constitutional Rights said they had planned to bring a complaint on behalf of two men who were tortured by U.S. interrogators and held at the military base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. “It was disappointing that we’re not able to actually prosecute him,” says CCR legal director Bill Quigley. “But I think it has shown worldwide that even though he was the president of the United States, if you engage in torture… there are consequences.” [includes rush transcript]

    how does this relate to yoga business????

      It relates because politics have a direct affect on yoga and what particularly occurred with George Bush directly affected my starting Yoganomics, and standing up against Yoga Alliance.

      Taking a stand against the bureaucratic misconduct that plagues the United States – whether it is through Government or Yoga Alliance, is one and the same.
