A distinguished panel of nine international jurists has released its detailed final verdict finding the United States guilty of genocide against Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples. 

The jury found the United States guilty on five counts, based on testimony and documents presented at last October’s historic human-rights tribunal held in New York. 

The 46-page document builds on the historic legal and political precedents represented by previous findings such as the Civil  Rights Congress’s 1951 “We Charge Genocide” petition, presented to the United Nations by . . .
