A New Program for a New Year: We, the Jury: A Forum Without Borders to commence broadcasting on Saturday, February 2, 2013Kevin Annett Salem-News.com
Former "Hidden from History" program to broaden its focus and actively involve its listeners in a public justice online forum
(NANAIMO, Vancouver Island) - One of the joys of my work is meeting honest people on the ground who are battling for justice against overwhelming odds. These valiant souls aren't just describing an evil but are directly confronting it.
Before anything, such warriors have needed a public forum to present their case and name the names, and for years we've helped them do so through our Hidden from History radio programs.
But now, something much more is needed. The truth speakers need a judicial arm to pronounce and enforce a community sentence against powerful criminals, in order to help us all reclaim what has been taken from us.
Our Common Law Court that began in the fall is helping to create that legal system by making the law work for the victims and not the criminals. We want to reflect this momentous step on the public airwaves with a new blog talk radio show called We, the Jury: A Forum Without Borders.
It will be a monthly program, two hours in length, commencing on Saturday, February 2 at 4 pm eastern time and running on the first Saturday of every month.
We, the Jury will have three components:
- An opening news report and commentary section that will include updates from our International Common Law Court of Justice and groups around the world
- An hour-long Public Court session featuring regular guests who will present their own cases and evidence of crimes in their own communities, and
- A summing up session to mobilize our listeners and carry on these campaigns
Our growing numbers of listeners have asked for such an activist-oriented program. In barely half a year during the fall of 2012, the numbers of our archived listeners quadrupled, once we began our Common Law Court and subpoenaed the Pope and other criminal parties.
The launching of We, the Jury next month will coincide with the concluding arguments of the Prosecutors' Office in our Court action against those responsible for Genocide in Canada. So we look forward to an actively engaging series of shows with very practical outcomes, on the first Saturday of every month.
I look forward to working with all of you to launch and sustain We, the Jury, so that it is not only your program but a practical weapon in the fight to reclaim our lives, our liberties, our children, and our world.
Stay tuned soon for more updates about the program and its new blog site, prior to February 2.
A Canadian clergyman, Kevin Annett has for nearly twenty years led the movement to bring to light and prosecute atrocities in Christian “Indian residential schools”, and win justice for survivors. Expelled in 1995 from his former United Church of Canada for exposing murders in that church’s Indian residential schools, and persecuted and blacklisted for his efforts, Kevin is now an award-winning film maker, author, social activist and public lecturer who works with victims of church violence and genocide all over the world. In 2009, he helped to establish the five-nation International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, which is seeking to indict church and government leaders for crimes against humanity.
As a result of Kevin’s tireless efforts on behalf of native people, the Canadian government was forced to issue a public “apology” and reparations program concerning Indian residential schools, in July of 2008. In giving him the name Eagle Strong Voice in 2007, Anishinabe elder Louis Daniels declared, “Kevin Annett is doing what few of his people have done, and that is to speak about the crimes they committed against many of our nations and their children. He has earned a place forever in our hearts and history. He is a brave and prophetic man. I ask everyone to welcome him and heed his voice.” And scholar Noam Chomsky wrote in 2006, “Kevin Annett is more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than many of those who have received it.”

"I gave Kevin Annett his Indian name, Eagle Strong Voice, in 2004 when I adopted him into our Anishinabe Nation. He carries that name proudly because he is doing the job he was sent to do, to tell his people of their wrongs. He speaks strongly and with truth. He speaks for our stolen and murdered children. I ask everyone to listen to him and welcome him."
