On the Eve of A Final Accounting: An Update from Kevin Annett and The International Common Law Court of JusticeReverend Kevin Annett, M.A., M.Div. Salem-News.com
Truth and knowledge are power, and over time can overthrow any tyrant, no matter how formidable.
(BRUSSELS) - I've been traveling across Europe and North America since August, helping to establish our Common Law Court of Justice. This Court is something new and historic in the world, a grassroots movement of citizen-powered justice that on October 15 will begin to turn the tables on criminal bodies of church and state.
The Court is now functioning in seven countries, and will issue indictments and enforce its verdicts and sentences against those responsible for hideous crimes against children. More specific directions will be issued to all 58 of its citizen jurors before October 15.
Hundreds of people are on board now with the Court: citizen jurors, judges and prosecutors, and many eyewitnesses and plaintiffs. Summonses have been issued, including to the Pope himself and heads of state. And in response, a senior catholic Cardinal has shown a willingness to break from the Pope and negotiate some of our demands on behalf of a faction in the hierarchy.
And thanks to new information provided by church insiders, we are on the verge of revealing the unmarked graves of little children that scatter the lands of Canada, America, Ireland and other nations; and starting the process to bring those children home.
So here's my report, written from Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, the USA and Canada.
John Deegan is one of our co-workers in Ireland who can cause panic among the catholic hierarchy just by walking into one of their churches. John has led continual occupations of Pro Cathedral in Dublin on behalf of child rape survivors. I got a real kick out of accompanying him into the Cathedral on September 9 to see where he had chained himself to the gold-plated pulpit.
"It's what they really fear, you know, occupying their churches during the mass" he commented, as worried Catholics watched us nervously. And I agreed with him, for it's been proven true all over the world.
A week later, I stood with other friends inside Amsterdam's main catholic church, St. Nicholas, handing out leaflets to startled parishioners and befuddled clergy. John's comment came true again, as the head priest hurried over to us and said that he'd negotiate anything we wanted, as long as we left the building.
One of our Dutch activists then read to the priest from our leaflet, which called on Catholics not to fund the church as long as it protected child raping priests through the Vatican law called Crimen Sollicitationas.
"But we don't do that!" exclaimed the priest. "We report all abuses to the police in Holland!"
I quickly said to him,
"Then you're disobeying this law from the Pope?"
He stared at me angrily and said nothing. I continued,
"Because under this law, if you report an abusive priest to the police, you'll be excommunicated"
Caught in his own lie, the priest threw up his hands and stormed away. And we kept leafleting his "flock". One of the parish council members even came over to us to pledge his support for our work.
Our action caused quite the stir in Holland. The top archbishop there wrote about our action to all his clergy, and that same week, over 20,000 people watched our broadcast from Holland about the launching of our International Common Law Court of Justice. (www.itccs.org, Sept. 15 and 17) In response, a German-Swiss television network broadcast our documentary Unrepentant to ten million people across Europe.
These kind of church occupations are definitely an Achilles Heel to criminal bodies like the Vatican, the Church of England and the United Church of Canada. Don't forget that it was our March, 2007 occupations of Vancouver and Toronto churches and the massive media coverage of those actions that forced the government's "apology" to residential school survivors a few months later.
But an even greater weapon in our arsenal is the hard evidence of church-sponsored crime and murder that will begin to go online globally on October 15. And this is clearly what churches and governments are worried about.
On September 18, an official with the European Union met with me for a day in Brussels and confirmed this.
"Parliamentarians here have been reading your documentation about the death rate in Canadian Indian schools, ever since your press conference in Rome two years ago" said the man.
"Some of us are preparing a motion to have Canada investigated for crimes against humanity, along with Pope Benedict. There is plenty of evidence showing collusion, thanks to your work."
Equally encouraging, and a sign of the crisis in the Vatican, is that while in Brussels I received a communication from a senior Cardinal in Rome describing how an anti-Ratzinger element in the Curia wishes to discuss some of the Ten Requirements our Tribunal issued to the Pope on May 4 (www.itccs.org). Now that these kinds of divisions in the Vatican are starting to crack open, it's clear that the tide is shifting.
Neither the churches nor governments under exposure are sitting idle, of course. The same European Union official told me that his sources in the British Home Office said that they plan to detain and imprison me if I try returning to England. And back in Canada, the government and its puppet "Aboriginal Peoples' Television Network" (APTN) is launching a renewed smear and misinformation campaign against our work and me personally.
That latest smear, not surprisingly, is aimed at the first excavation of a mass grave site at a Canadian Indian residential school that we commenced with Mohawk elders' permission just a year ago. That survey and dig, at the former Mohawk Institute in Brantford, uncovered for the first time verified clothing and buttons from children's uniforms, and other evidence indicating that children are buried there. This evidence will feature prominently in the third case in the Docket of our Court.
The sabotage campaign at Brantford involves a couple of government-paid operatives, Jan Longboat and Frank Miller, who have bribed or confused elders at Brantford to disassociate themselves from our inquiry and yours truly, with the usual kind of unsubstantiated lies and smears. They've even issued a fake story that unnamed "elders" have asked me to leave their community. And after consistently ignoring the actual dig and the evidence we uncovered, the government-funded APTN is now broadcasting this stage-managed black ops as the truth of what is "really going on" at Brantford. Meanwhile, the Canadian media is completely blacking out all of the actual evidence we've uncovered.
All of this is very familiar. On two previous occasions, exactly the same tactics of internal sabotage were used to successfully infiltrate and disrupt our work in Canada: in June 1998, when our first Tribunal into Canadian residential schools was held in Vancouver, and in the period 2007-2008, when our protests forced the "apology" by Canada for residential schools.
The difference now, of course, is that our campaign has spread globally, and the hard evidence of children's graves has finally surfaced. That's why the Brantford dig that we initiated with Mohawk elders is so important, and not only because it was the first independent excavation of an identified residential school burial site.
In the process of the Brantford inquiry, two sources in the Anglican church that ran the school, including an aboriginal researcher named Leona Moses, described how they uncovered a "smoking gun" document authorizing the extermination of all the Mohawks. It was signed by the Crown of England, the Church and state-allied Indian chiefs in 1870. This document is being hidden by Anglican Bishop Bob Bennett along with other material proving murders of children at the Mohawk school, under orders from the Archbishop of Canterbury in London, Rowan Williams.
So it's small wonder that the Crown and its paid agents are pulling out all stops to squash our exposure of such direct proof of deliberate genocide against Mohawk children. But the Brantford inquiry is continuing, and will feature in the third case in the Docket of our Court.
The important fact is that we've reached a new pinnacle in our work, and a crossroads: for instead of just documenting and exposing genocide, murder and child trafficking by churches, we are taking the next step, and placing the guilty on trial before the eyes of the world. What will emerge from that trial will be an enforceable judgement and sentencing against institutions that until now have been above the law and unaccountable.
Our Prosecutor's Office will begin to present the evidence against the accused on an online broadcast and You Tube posting starting October 15, focusing on five cases which are fully described at www.itccs.org (September 17). All of you can be part of the court and its deliberations, as well as the public debate concerning the ultimate sentence to be imposed on the accused persons and institutions, so that their crimes will never re-occur.
Let me conclude by saying that what's happening with all of this is truly remarkable. The churches that for centuries have caused unspeakable crimes on the innocent are facing disestablishment, thanks not only to these protest movements and legal actions, but due to a genuine spiritual reformation that is undoing the fabric of false religions.
During September, for example, we were contacted by groups of "light workers" and spiritual elders in America and Europe who are helping to undo the deeper power of the Vatican and the dark forces behind it. We can see the positive results of this work, as more witnesses and even church insiders are coming to us now with information and help; and as more people leave these false churches.
Truth and knowledge are power, and over time can overthrow any tyrant, no matter how formidable. So help us and yourselves, and children both dead and alive, by engaging personally in the efforts of our Common Law Court and New Reformation during the months ahead. The end of the present cycle of decay and falsehood has been predicted, and is manifesting before our eyes.
Stay tuned on Monday, October 15 for the online posting of the first evidence about the crimes of church and state. And please contact me directly.
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.”
Special thanks to Bill Annett
