The ITCCS joins with many survivors of torture around the world today as we formally inaugurate an international inquiry and trial into crimes against humanity by church and state.
For the next three months, our network in Canada, the United States, Australia, Ireland, England, the Netherlands and Belgium, Italy, Germany, Slovenia, and other nations will be documenting crimes committed against children, indigenous people and other innocents by the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches and their associates in government.
Our work will culminate in a final report and documentary film containing the evidence required to indict these bodies for genocide and crimes against humanity.
The next phase of our work, commencing early in January, 2012, will involve the trial and sentencing of those groups and persons responsible for these crimes.
We welcome the recent efforts to criminally prosecute Pope Joseph Ratzinger for his personal complicity in child abuse and trafficking, and we will join with other groups of survivors in Rome, outside the Vatican, at a mass protest at 12 noon on Monday, October 31, 2011.
We will also be working with politicians in the European Parliament to seek sanctions and indictments against Canada and its churches for genocide, based on new forensic evidence we have recently obtained from three separate mass graves of Indian children who were killed or died in church-run residential schools across Canada.
Our ITCCS forums will be open to the public and the media, who are free and encouraged to share and broadcast our evidence to the world.
