The autonomous Republic of Eurostaete and its officials have formally endorsed the aims and work of Rev. Kevin Annett and the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS), following a conference held near Amsterdam on May 28.
Eurostaete also welcomed the establishment of The Republic of Kanata as “a hope and an inspiration” to victims of the Crown of England and “religious intolerance”.
Dr. Gerard Beukeveld, founder and head Regent of The Republic of Eurostaete, announced the endorsement of the ITCCS at the end of the conference where Rev. Kevin Annett was the featured speaker.
“In defending Indian people targeted for genocide, Mr. Annett has defended the same principles we believe in, especially the rights of nations to sovereignty. We therefore join him in holding accountable the powers that have caused these crimes against humanity” stated Dr. Beukeveld.
We welcome the establishment of The Republic of Kanata and call for its diplomatic recognition by other nations, for only in the democratic courts of such a new Republic can indictments be brought against those powers.
The Republic of Kanata was proclaimed on July 1, 2009 in Winnipeg, Canada by native and non-native people frustrated by the refusal of Crown-based Canadian courts to prosecute the government of Canada and its churches for Genocide. Rev. Annett is a member of the Republic’s Provisional Council.
In accepting Eurostaete’s endorsement, Rev. Annett presented Dr. Beukeveld and other Eurostaete officials with the flag of The Republic of Kanata, and said,
Our common stand today is part of a growing movement to bring to trial the churches and governments that exterminated millions of indigenous people, including our ancestors here in Europe. The global corporate agenda is continuing this extermination as we speak, and so we must hold on to our lands and our lives as free and sovereign people if we are to survive.
Observers from Eurostaete will be present at the convening of the ITCCS Tribunal in London, England in mid September, and at other Tribunal locations to be disclosed.
