dc Campus Administrators Seize Student Newspaper after it publishes article by Kevin Annett on medical atrocities against Indians performed next door
Nanaimo, British Columbia
January 12, 2018
Kevin Annett reports:
I can’t say I was that surprised when this latest boot of censorship descended. After all, Canadian universities don’t like their students thinking too much about “forbidden” subjects, like homegrown genocide. For once again, college administrators in this country have displayed their moral and intellectual turpitude by censoring a story that exposed dirty laundry too close to home: specifically, concerning the half-century of medical atrocities that went on right next door to their campus, at the hands of the Canadian military and the United Church of Canada.
The scene of this latest fiasco, and crime, is Vancouver Island University (VIU) in Nanaimo, B.C. The banned article in question, written by yours truly, concerns the infamous Nanaimo Indian Hospital, where generations of Indian children were sterilized, tortured, starved, drugged, and used as involuntary test subjects by army and church doctors, according to eyewitnesses and hard evidence quoted in the article.
Early in December of 2017, my submission about the hospital was published by the VIU student newspaper The Navigator with the full blessings of its editors. But barely a day later, all of the copies of the “offending” issue of that paper were seized by VIU campus security acting for the administration. No reason was ever given for the seizure. But the standard Canadian fog of intimidation and secrecy has kept mouths closed and the censorship of the article hidden until just this past week, when people began to talk. (The banned article is reprinted below)
Some of my Nanaimo associates are sweating outrage in the wake of this news. In truth, I love it when we can provoke the system like this, and watch as its veneer of civility and pseudo-academic freedom gets blown away by the hysterical, knee-jerk repression from the powers that pretend to be. For the VIU administrators have by their extreme reaction proven the truth of what’s in the censored report. If the article’s claims were not true, the offended parties would have countered with the real facts and I’d have received a legal writ demanding a public recanting and apology. But as usual, nothing like that has happened. Instead, there’s been no denial of the crimes and no counter-evidence presented – just a quick silencing of the whole issue.
In short, we’re witnessing once again the same familiar scenario of institutionalized cover up and censorship of crimes against humanity in Canada. The game plan never changes, for the parties that did the crime are still threatened by it, and must erase the evidence and those who speak of it. But fortunately, what also doesn’t change is the fallout created by such stupid repression. Some formerly-obtuse VIU folks have received a wake up call and can be expected to be radicalized by this latest boot. For as the veteran hell raiser Saul Alinsky observed,
“An oppressive system, properly goaded, can be your best ally. Its tyrannical over reaction, not your efforts alone, is what will politicize a new generation.”
Sure enough, a group of VIU students are already protesting this attack on freedom of speech to the campus bosses, including by staging rallies and distributing copies of the banned article to their fellow students. Ah, youth. Carry it on!

Who and What is buried next door to VIU? Genocide in our own Backyard
November 15, 2017
I was used like a guinea pig in the Nanaimo Indian Hospital for over seven years. Lots of children died in there and they’re still lying out in that field somewhere. - Joan Morris, speaking at Malaspina College (VIU) in March of 2004
Look to the south of the VIU campus across Fifth street and you’ll see a tangle of foliage behind stern barbed wire fencing. For over half a century it was the site of the Nanaimo Indian Hospital (NIH), a prison-like experimental center run by the United Church and the Canadian military. Survivors claim and records confirm that hundreds of children died there from grisly medical experiments and other barbarities.
“They were all aboriginal kids, scooped off reserves or out of the residential schools” describes Joan Morris, a Songhees native woman from Victoria who was incarcerated at the NIH when she was barely five years old.
“The Indian Affairs doctor lied to my mother and said I had TB when I didn’t. They had me in that hospital until I was a teenager. They were always giving me shots and things to drink that made me sick. They’d do surgeries on me. They broke all the bones in my feet so I couldn’t run away. Later, I found out I couldn’t have children. They were sterilizing a lot of the girls in there.”
Joan first surfaced her story more than a dozen years ago at a series of public forums at VIU, known then as Malaspina College. At these forums Joan named the men who experimented on her, like the local Doctors Weinrib and Schmidt who were employed by the Canadian military during the 1960′s and ’70′s. Shortly after Joan gave her talks to handful-sized audiences at the college, the remaining buildings on the NIH grounds were bulldozed down by the City of Nanaimo and the area was padlocked.
“They were always warning us never to talk about what happened to us” describes Joan. “When the hospital closed some army officers came to our home and said we’d go to jail if we talked about it because it was all national security.”
The official censorship went further. In the spring of 1999, shortly after the media first reported the NIH allegations, the federal government “officially sealed” its archives on the NIH and other Indian hospitals across Canada. But separate records held at the UBC Koerner Library confirm that the NIH received major funding from both the Defense Research Board and the United Church of Canada to conduct “classified experimental research” on generations of aboriginal women and children.
“After they grabbed me my mother made a fuss so they put her in there with me too” Joan describes. “They did that to lots of Indian families all over the island. Lots of people were dying in there. Every morning they were taking little dead bodies out of the wards on those metal gurneys. My cousin Nancy Joe saw them bury those kids in the field behind us, up near the highway.”
Esther Morris, a distant relative of Joan, was also incarcerated at the NIH during the 1960′s. In 2007 she too went public.
“They kept me strapped into this weird device so I could never lie down or stand up, just held like that for months on end” says Esther. “I lost the use of my legs. An orderly said it was for space research. It was funny because some of the doctors couldn’t speak English and they needed a translator.”
The NIH was just the tip of a huge iceberg of state and church-sponsored crimes against humanity in Canada that span over a century and have never been prosecuted. Many of these atrocities are documented in the book Murder by Decree: The Crime of Genocide in Canada, Past and Present (2016), a compilation of over twenty years of independent research. Murder by Decree documents how the NIH experiments, including involuntary sterilizations, were performed routinely among west coast Indians by missionary and local doctors. (See it at www.createspace.com/6085632
Sarah Modeste of the Cowichan Nation was sterilized at the King’s Daughters clinic in Duncan, BC in the early 1950′s by Dr. James Goodbrand. As Sarah describes in Murder by Decree,
“Dr. Goodbrand said to me, ‘If you marry Freddy, I’ll have to do an operation on you because he’s not a Christian’. So later when Goodbrand delivered my first baby after that I was all bruised and hurting. Then I learned I’d been sterilized … Goodbrand told me he was being paid $300 by the government for every Indian woman he sterilized”.
Involuntary sterilizations and medical experiments have been illegal under international law since 1948, and are defined as crimes against humanity. Yet Canada and its churches not only did those crimes but have whitewashed them and absolved themselves of any liability. And not one person has ever been brought to trial in Canada for these wrongs, or for the death of children in these hospitals and residential schools, from where half of the little prisoners never returned.
While Joan Morris and the children who died at the NIH have never had their day in a Canadian court, they have it at an historic trial in Brussels during 2012 and 2013. Based in part on Joan’s testimony and those of dozens of others of survivors of the Canadian genocide, the International Common Law Court of Justice found Canada, its churches and the Crown of England and the Vatican guilty of crimes against humanity.
As a result of this verdict and under international law, Canadians are obligated not to pay their taxes to a convicted criminal regime like their own government – or to fund similarly sentenced bodies like the United Church – lest they be found guilty of colluding in their crimes.
Whatever happens, the atrocity remains. The lost children of the NIH are waiting to be found and brought home for a proper burial. And the VIU community has to ask itself how it can dwell alongside and remain oblivious to genocide in its own backyard: a crime that if not confronted can only continue.

Download (in English and French versions): General leaflet – Operation Atonement
Commencing on Child Holocaust Remembrance Day – April 15, 2018
under the auspices of The International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)
1. To identify, disrupt and stop church-related child torture, trafficking and murder;
2. To enforce standing common law arrest and reclamation warrants against convicted churches and individuals, and
3. To legally, materially and spiritually disestablish these criminal church corporations.
1. Public Teach-ins, Educational Forums and Ceremonies
2. Public Protests, Occupations, Spiritual Exorcisms and Civil Disobedience
3. Citizens’ Arrests and Seizures of Church Assets and Property
4. Boycotts, Financial Sanctions and Sabotage
5. Public Tribunals and Common Law Court Trials
We the People, authorized by Court Warrants and accompanied by Common Law Sheriffs, special action units and deputized police officers.
The growing global effort to halt the systemic abuse and trafficking of children was sparked by the ITCCS in February of 2013 when its Brussels-based common law court successfully tried and deposed Pope Benedict, and convicted Queen Elizabeth and others for complicity in Crimes against Humanity. Since then, similar courts have issued arrest warrants against the highest officials of the Catholic, Anglican and United Churches and their governmental and corporate partners in crime. It is now up to the people of all countries to take direct action to halt the massive child trafficking networks run by these churches because of the deep complicity of existing courts and governments with their crimes. As convicted criminal bodies, these churches have lost the right to legally operate under both international and moral law. It is We the People who must enforce this law and defend children everywhere from religious predators.
The ITCCS and its affiliates in nine countries are launching a new global effort to bring an end to the reign of these child-killing church corporations in the form of Operation Atonement. We have chosen April 15, 2018 as the commencement date for this open-ended, ongoing campaign, for on that day in the year 2005 survivors of the genocidal, church-run “Indian residential schools” in Canada launched the first Aboriginal Holocaust Remembrance Day. Building on this, we are commencing an even more universal Child Holocaust Day so that the global industry of profiting off and murdering children will be stop forever.
The Nature, Course and Strategy of Operation Atonement
For centuries, the state-incorporated churches – especially the Church of Rome and of England – have murdered, enslaved and waged unrelenting warfare against the world’s people, seized and stolen their lands and wealth, brutalized and trafficked their children and imposed a stifling mental and spiritual tyranny over most of humanity. They have done so as partners in Empire and as such are politically protected and legally shielded by all governments from the consequences of their continuing crimes. As a result, these tax-exempted religious corporations have become transnational criminal bodies that are deeply involved in organized crime, the global arms industry and drug and child trafficking. The Vatican is the most murderous and wealthiest criminal syndicate in history, and it kills and corrupts with impunity while feigning humanity and “divine authority”.
Because of this, we cannot stop these churches’ crimes against the innocent without striking at the heart of their power, which is threefold: their money, their legality, and their credibility. For despite their apparent authority, these religious bodies are extremely vulnerable to public exposure because of the depth of their wrongdoing. Our campaigns have proven this by our successful deposing of Pope Benedict, Jesuit leader Adolfo Pachon and three other top Vatican officials during 2013 and 2014.
Operation Atonement is designed to strike directly at all three of these weak points in the defenses of this deceptive enemy. It will do so publicly, lawfully, and by educating and mobilizing the people, both inside and outside of these churches. Our aim is a simple one: to disestablish these false and criminal institutions by making it impossible for them to operate. Our weapons are both material and spiritual, and we shall call upon divine providence and intervention to abolish these false churches.
Operation Atonement will proceed in three stages: Education, Direct Action and Disestablishment.
Stage One will begin on Sunday, April 15, 2018 with commemorative ceremonies outside and inside targeted churches, including spiritual exorcisms and prayer vigils. We will make a direct appeal to members of these churches to separate themselves from their evil through fasting, prayer and withholding all tithing. These public events will be followed for two weeks with a general public education campaign and the selective training of our cadres at teach-ins and workshops. The latter will be designed to arm our activists with an understanding of their enemy and train them for the upcoming battles.
Stage Two will begin on Monday, April 30, 2018 with direct actions aimed at the church institutions and their top officers and clergy, including those who stand convicted in ITCCS common law courts. The normal operations of the targeted churches will be disrupted according to the requirements of international law. Guilty individuals will be peacefully arrested and publicly banished from the community, or handed over to deputized police forces for imprisonment under the terms of their convictions. Church facilities will be peacefully occupied and their assets and properties seized to prevent their criminal usage, as required under international law. Stage Two will be open-ended and will continue as long as is necessary to forever halt the operations of these churches.
Stage Three will accompany Stage Two and will seek to achieve the permanent disestablishment of these church corporations. Stage Three will have three aspects: legal, financial and spiritual.
a) Legal: Public Common Law Courts and Citizen Tribunals will be convened to bring to trial anyone suspected or guilty of crimes against children and humanity. These Courts will issue and enforce warrants to arrest the guilty and seize their assets and properties. Public Tribunals will operate as permanent citizen-led investigative bodies to monitor criminal churches and their partners, and bring charges and legal actions against them.
b) Financial: A long-term campaign of economic sanctions and sabotage will be brought against these churches to de-fund them and seize their assets, as is required under international law governing criminal bodies. These sanctions will be extensive and will include reducing church tithing and collections; nullifying their charitable tax-exempt status and their right to operate under the law; targeting individual donors and bequests, as well as the insurance companies that underwrite these churches; and imposing financial liens and lawsuits on individual church officers as responsible parties to a serial crime. The general aim will be to prevent these criminal churches from financially operating.
c) Spiritual: Recognizing the demonic nature of the Vatican-led crimes against children and humanity, our efforts are also aimed at the spiritual forces that rule these false churches. Our first public exorcism of the power behind the Vatican in October, 2009 disrupted that power and began its demise. Through divine grace, we will continue to use weapons of the spirit to expose and expel the unseen forces that sustain church criminality and corruption. Our aim is to disestablish those forces and their puppet church bodies and officials, and help release Christians from their spiritual enslavement to institutionalized evil.
The strategy behind Operation Atonement is both material and spiritual, designed to publicly and psychologically destroy the legitimacy of these false churches and nullify their authority. At every moment our campaign will appeal to the hearts and minds of the church members and the public, including the police and state authorities. Standing on the moral high ground as we always have done, our basic appeal will be that just and honest people have no place in murderous and duplicitous corporations; and that true Christians have no need for religious hierarchies. But accompanying this “carrot” will be the hard legal hammer that their funding or participation in such legally convicted churches makes them an accomplice in their crimes, and subject to arrest. This two-fold approach cannot be countered by church leaders without them opening the Pandora’s Box of their crimes that they must hide from their “flock”: an impossible, no-win scenario for them.
Similarly, governments are continually exposed by their use of our tax money to subsidize these felonious bodies, and by the refusal of their courts to prosecute proven church child rapists and killers. Both church and state are inherently on the defensive over the entire issue of church crimes, and can therefore be manipulated and provoked into the responses we want by our own relatively small forces. Again, we have shown in practice how possible this is, once even a tiny group acts with courage and persistence, and establishes the field of battle.
Coordination and Preparation
The organizing for Operation Atonement has already begun. Orientation handbooks and other material will be available by January 15, 2018. The general Operation will be coordinated by the ITCCS Directorate through its three Field Secretaries, in North America, Europe and Australia. Local affiliates and people in these respective areas should write to email@example.com or to the emails listed below to connect with one of these Secretaries. The latter will help you organize your own local action group and will keep you updated and supplied.
Preparing for Operation Atonement begins with your own committment to this sacred cause, of protecting children and stopping their killers. Many of you may find yourself on your own, or in the company of only one or two others who are willing to take this course of action. Don’t be disheartened; others will join you when you begin to act. We have found that even a handful of people armed with the truth can force the biggest criminal institution into an irrational panic. Press that point of weakness and your efforts will be rewarded.
Regular updates about our campaign can be seen at www.itccs.org. But the time for you to choose is now. We look forward to working with you in the months ahead. Unite and act now, for the children!

This Sunday November 12, 2017 on Here We Stand
at 3 pm pacific, 6 pm eastern, 11 pm GMT on www.bbsradio.com/herewestan
A society that legally murders the innocent and then buries its crimes requires our collective complicity and amnesia. But we will no longer feed their bloody system.
On this All Peoples’ Remembrance Day, don’t miss our final program of the season. Featuring your host Kevin Annett and the songs and voices of the dead, gone but never forgotten.
And in memory of my uncle Sub. Lt. Robert Annett, age 19, who died in action on April 29, 1944 after giving his life jacket to a drowning fellow seaman from the HMCS Athabaskan:
“Greater Love has no man than to give his life for another”
BUT Are we actually against War? A reflection on the upcoming program:
On this All Peoples’ Remembrance Day we recognize that we cannot be against war in general, for to be so is too easy and it changes nothing.
We especially cannot be against war when we depend on and profit from it so much, through a permanent arms economy that sustains our standard of living and privileges.
We pay for war with our taxes, we benefit from war materially, and we even draw our pension and retirement funds from the profits of the arms industry – as does every major church and religion on the planet, starting with the Vatican Incorporated.
So no, none of us are against war in practice. How can we be? If we were, we would be refusing to pay our taxes and with our bodies we would be blockading the army recruitment offices and impeding the arms and uranium shipped overseas to exterminate other people, and we would be telling every soldier in the world to disobey their orders to kill. We would be opposing war with our actions, not our words.
But even if we were not so utterly compromised we could not stop any war, because it is always too distant a crime. There is only one war that we can affect and perhaps even stop, and that is the war at home, in ourselves and in our own communities. It is that backyard war of which we will speak today, and the victims of the war at home who we will hold up now and remember.
Listen and act, starting this Sunday, November 12 at 3 pm pacific, 6 pm eastern, 11 pm GMT at www.bbsradio.com/herewestand .
Note: After today’s show, our program will resume broadcasting on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at the regular time, with a new line up and new initiatives for liberty and justice. Until then, listen to any and all of our archived programs at www.bbsradio.com/herewestan

Breaking News from the ITCCS and The Covenanters movement
October 31, 2017
Proclamation summons all “lost brethren” to leave the false Church of Rome – Action builds on Easter, 2014 “Emancipation and Nullification Order” that disestablished the papacy
This morning, at “Roman Catholic” cathedrals across America, Canada, England, Scotland and Ireland, members of the Covenanters movement posted public Proclamations that evicted the Church of Rome from their land and called upon all “lost brethren” to leave that false church. The Proclamation places all adherents and clergy of the Church of Rome on legal notice that they are subject to citizens’ arrest for any future association with their murderous, criminally convicted corporation.
Today’s action was marred by some incidents, including physical confrontations between catholic priests and the groups of Covenanters who stood peacefully outside the Roman churches. One Covenanter member, an elderly aboriginal man of the Anishnabe nation, was assaulted by an outraged priest at an eastern Canadian church. The assaulted man refused to press charges against the priest, asking instead for the latter to “search his conscience and stop serving the Thing that murdered so many of my people.” Police appeared at several of the actions but no arrests were made.
Today’s action builds on the Maastricht Proclamation issued on Easter, 2014 by the International Common Law Court of Justice as part of its case against top Vatican officials, including Jorge Bergoglio, aka “pope Francis”. The Proclamation nullified the authority of the Church of Rome and the papacy under the laws of God and mankind, and called upon top Vatican officials to resign. One such official, the so-called “Black Pope”, Jesuit leader Adolfo Pachon, did in fact announce his resignation from his office less than a month after the issuing of the Maastricht Proclamation. (See https://www.youtube.com/w
In the words of Scottish Covenanter John Burke,
“Just as Martin Luther’s posting of his 95 Theses opened a floodgate of liberation, so too is our action today just the start of a bigger disestablishing of the oldest tyranny in our history. We will no longer allow child killing priests and Vatican crimes to terrorize our nations. Their time is over, so help us God.”

Link: Pledge of Conscience AND October 22 Here We Stand radio program :
Issued by The Covenant of Free Congregational Christians (The Covenanters)
on Sunday, October 22, 2017 In preparation for the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation
Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which appear beautiful on the outside but are filled with the bones of the dead and all things corrupt. - Matthew 23:27
For what does light have in common with the darkness? Therefore come out from among them and separate yourselves, says the Lord God. - 2 Corinthians 6:14, 17
Since 2013, the churches of Rome, of England, and of Canada have been convicted of unspeakable crimes against children and humanity. Under both man’s law and the law of God they have been declared criminal bodies and their authority has been nullified. The curtain of judgement has fallen on not only these churches but upon all those who remain within them. It is time for all people of conscience and of Christ to leave forever these false and murderous churches.
Commencing at sunrise on Sunday October 29, all people are invited to enter into forty eight hours of prayer, fasting and spiritual separation from the Satanic churchly powers. On October 31, on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Christ’s people will reassemble in new congregations apart from these powers and their worldly churches.
We call upon all members or adherents of the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada to begin this process of inner and outer cleansing by ceasing and desisting from funding or associating with these criminal bodies. Fast and separate with us and return to Christ Alone, and declare this intention by taking the appended Pledge of Conscience and sharing it with your family and other church members. In Christ’s name and according to his purpose, Amen.
Pledge of Conscience
I, ______________________________ , after prayer and in good faith, hereby pledge to disassociate myself from the Church known as __________________________________ and to deny it all attendance, funding and adherence. I do so because of its criminal conviction as a genocidal, child killing institution that has betrayed God and humanity, and thereby forfeited all legitimacy, rights and authority.
I also pledge by this separation to pursue my faith in the company of others who have taken or who may take this Pledge. So help me God.
Note: Please leave copies of this Pledge in the church collection plate and share it with others. See the evidence of the crimes of your church at www.murderbydecree.com and www.itccs.org .
