Protest Threats Derail Bush Speech in Switzerland
By JAMES RISEN
WASHINGTON – A planned trip by former President George W. Bush to Switzerland this week has been canceled in the face of threatened large-scale protests and calls for an investigation into whether his administration committed human rights abuses in the fight against terrorism.
A spokesman for Mr. Bush said Saturday that the trip was canceled after the United Israel Appeal, an international Jewish charity organizing the Geneva event where he had been scheduled to speak next Saturday, told him on Friday that it was canceling the speech because of security concerns.
“We regret that the speech has been canceled,” said David Sherzer, a spokesman for Mr. Bush. “President Bush was looking forward to speaking about freedom and offering reflections from his time in office.”

“He might never see Texas again.”
As the Indict Bush movement organizes protests at stops all along his book tour, the message is resonating all over the world — Bush should be seen as a war criminal and indicted for his crimes.
