GUILTY: Pope, Jesuits convicted in historic case

In the Matter of The People v. Bergoglio et al (Case Docket No. 18072014-002)

The Judgement of the Magistrates of the Court, including the majority decision with with one dissenting opinion

Issued in Chambers Friday, 18 July, 2014

The unanimous Judgement of the Court is that the three primary defendants Jorge BERGOGLIO, Adolfo PACHON and Justin WELBY have been convicted and are guilty as charged of aiding and abetting Crimes against Humanity, including murder and human trafficking, and of personal involvement in those crimes. Their guilt has been ably presented and proven beyond any reasonable doubt by the Prosecution.

The refusal of the Defendants to respond to a lawful Summons, to deny or refute the charges against them, or to present a counter case in their own defense, compelled the Court to consider their silence as a de facto pro confesso plea in which their guilt was established by their refusal to enter a plea. Precedent has established that pro confesso – which is the refusal of a defendant to plea in a case of profound importance – provides the basis for the lawful conviction and deposing of rulers and responsible heads of church and state. (The People in Parliament v. Charles Stuart, January 3, 1649)

In this precedent, the High Court established by the Parliament of England ruled that the silence of heads of church and state when accused of crimes against their own people amounts to a confession by the accused of all of the charges made against them (January 22, 1649).

One of our colleagues offers a dissenting opinion.

While concurring with the judgement that all three Defendants are guilty as charged, the dissenting Magistrate argues that pro confesso applies only when no other means exist to prevent such rulers from perpetrating tyranny and wars of aggression on their own people and their liberties, as was so in the historical case cited.

The dissenting colleague argues that by convicting the Defendants primarily under a pro confesso precedent, their actual guilt for the crimes cited can be construed to have been established according to a legal technicality. To quote our colleague’s statement,

“The overwhelming guilt of these leaders for unspeakable crimes demands that we convict them not simply on the basis of a technicality but according to the evidence alone, so that their guilt is crystal clear to the world and to posterity.”

The Court has taken into account this dissenting opinion in formulating its final judgement.

Accordingly, it is the unanimous judgement of the Court that:

1. The Defendants Jorge BERGOGLIO, Adolfo PACHON and Justin WELBY are guilty as charged on two counts: of organizing, aiding and abetting Crimes against Humanity, including murder and human trafficking, and of personally participating in the routine and ritual rape, torture and murder of children.

2. The Defendants are sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole or pardon, and to the forfeiture of their assets, property and authority.

3. The sworn Sheriffs of the Court and their affiliated Direct Action Units, established by the Court on June 1, 2014, are ordered to immediately arrest and imprison the Defendants at facilities provided by the Court, and to seize their property and assets. The public is asked to assist the Sheriffs in this task. An open ended International Citizens’ Arrest Warrant will be issued by the Court against the convicted persons within 48 hours of this judgement.

4. The Court will produce a full public statement making it clear that the basis for its conviction of the Defendants lay entirely in the hard evidence of their guilt, and that their refusal to plea, and hence the pro confesso judgement, was a contributing factor but not the basis of the guilty sentence.

5. In addition, to emphasize that this conviction is not a limited one aimed only at the top figureheads of murderous regimes, as of September 1, 2014, the Court will establish an ongoing Permanent Inquiry to investigate and prosecute others involved in the crimes proven in this case and contained in the permanent Court record. This Inquiry shall be entitled The Permanent Commission into Child Trafficking and Ritual Sacrifice and will have the power to subpoena and arrest, and adjudicate cases before the Court. The Commission will be international in scope, have no time restriction, and will seek cooperation from governments, international agencies and police forces with the aim of prosecuting and stopping forever the trafficking, ritual torture and murder of children.

6. To protect this Commission, its witnesses, officers and evidence, the Court record from the case of The People v. Bergoglio et all will remain sealed for now, along with the identity of the witnesses and Court officers, with the exception of that permitted by the special and unanimous authorization of the Court. The Jury members who were involved in proceedings thus far are relieved of their duties and thanked for their efforts.

7. This concludes the case of The People v. Bergoglio et al.

Common Law Militias to shut down child sacrificial rituals: Instructions for all Direct Action Units

Instructions for Direct Action Units (DAU’s) of the International Common Law Court of Justice
www.iclcj.com

The urgent need to stop the ritual slaughter, rape and trafficking of children, and the refusal of regular police to do so, has compelled the Court to issue a call for a citizens’ militia to halt these crimes. Rituals of the Ninth Circle sacrificial cult scheduled for August 15 at Catholic cathedrals in Montreal and Dublin will be stopped by special Direct Action Units (DAU’s).

The Direct Action Units were mandated by an order of the Court dated June 1, 2014. That mandate reads in part,

“The DAU’s are citizen-based militias whose purpose is:

1. To protect the children of their communities by identifying, arresting and prosecuting child rapists and murderers, and those who aid them, and by permanently banishing such criminals from their communities;

2. To train and mobilize the community to defend itself against threats to their liberty and well being, including by establishing a grass roots intelligence network;

3. To occupy and seize the property and assets of criminal organizations and felons convicted by the Common Law courts;

4. To provide security and protection to the Common Law courts and their officers, and

5. To initiate any other direct actions needed to protect the innocent and the liberties of the people.”

The DAU’s are established by the formation of three or more men or women in a community into a Unit. Each Unit has an elected Commander who overseas the DAU and liaisons with the Central Office. Unlike Court Sheriffs, DAU members require no special training or accreditation, since they are in effect a posse or militia whose purpose is to identify and stop threats to children and the community at large. But the DAU’s will be guided and overseen by trained and professional security personnel.

The DAU’s are in effect the eyes and the arms of the people, watching over and guarding them. As guardians, they monitor crimes, investigate those responsible, and take direct measures to stop them.

The DAU’s are accountable only to the people and to their common law courts, and not to the existing police, de facto courts or governments. They act in unison with the common law courts and sheriffs as their auxiliary arm and militia.

DAU’s now exist in over forty communities in Canada, the USA, Ireland, England, Belgium, Holland, Italy and Australia. For more information and to join or form a DAU, contact itccscentral@gmail.com .

Text of the Amnesty Offer:

Hello. My name is Kevin Annett and I have been authorized by the International Common Law Court of Justice to make the following announcement and offer to every employee and agent of the Vatican and the Crown of England, anywhere in the world:

As I speak, the top officers of the bodies you are serving are being tried for the torture, trafficking and murder of children. Pope Francis, Jesuit leader Adolfo Pachon, the Archbishop of Canterbury and other top Crown and church officers have already been indicted for these crimes. And every employee of the Vatican or the Crown and Church of England will be considered legally complicit in these crimes once they have been proven in our common law court of law.

This is an appeal to insiders in these murderous organizations to come forward and do what is just and right – and to spare yourselves prosecution and exposure for your own involvement in these crimes.

The Court is therefore making each of you this one time only offer:

If you name the names and provide evidence of those responsible for these crimes, and can verify the involvement of Pope Francis and the others in the murderous actions of the Ninth Circle cult and other crimes, you will be granted a general amnesty and will not be prosecuted for your involvement in or knowledge of these crimes.

This general Amnesty also extends to any citizen with such inside and verifiable knowledge.

In addition, the Court will reward any of you with such insider knowledge up to 10,000 Euros for your evidence and statements.

You may contact the Court Prosecutor’s Office at the emails and phone numbers listed at the end of this broadcast. Your statements will be kept in complete confidentiality.

Know this: Those whom you have sworn to serve and obey are monstrous criminals who have the blood of innocent children on their hands. The truth of their crime is being revealed. If you do not stand with justice and the innocent, you will fall with the convicted heads of church and state.

You have been released from your oaths of allegiance, and ordered to stand down from your service of these criminals, by lawful proclamations of the Court. You are free to do what is right.

Act on that freedom, today. We await your answer.

Pope’s reference to “satanic mass” in relation to catholic child rape constitutes “his tacit knowledge” of such a crime: Common Law Court … Outraged Survivors demand Pope’s immediate resignation for “sadistic insensitivity”

An ITCCS Special Breaking Communique – Tuesday, May 27, 2014

News Item: The BBC World News reported today that Jorge Bergoglio (“aka “Pope Francis”) compared the rape of children by catholic priests to the performing of a “satanic mass”

Brussels:

After being publicly accused and indicted for participating in child trafficking and murder involving apparent satanic rituals, Jorge Bergoglio today indicated that he has a “tacit knowledge” of such satanic practices in his church by associating them with the rape of children by catholic priests, according to the Court now prosecuting him.

The Citizen Prosecutor of the International Common Law Court of Justice said today from Brussels,

“Our position is that Jorge Bergoglio’s bizarre remarks are not coincidental, but reveal that he understands that the rape of children within his church are linked to satanic rituals in which he himself participates. We consider the Pope’s remarks a tacit admission of guilt and more evidence of his involvement in this monstrous crime.”

Ruth Leopold, a 51 year old American survivor of Catholic ritual torture and rape who heads a survivors’ delegation to the Court, said today in a statement to other members of her network Against Church Terror,

“Any idiot knows that even mentioning trigger words like ‘satanic mass’ will re-traumatize victims of satanic torture. So we consider the Pope’s remarks the lowest kind of sadistic insensitivity. Maybe his words were deliberately designed to make more of us kill ourselves, now that we are accusing him of taking part in Ninth Circle ritual killings. It’s time he stepped down.”

The Common Law Court of Justice is in the midst of its third closed session in which numerous eyewitnesses and archival documentation clearly link Pope Francis, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Jesuit head Adolfo Pachon to the ritual rape and killing of children as recently as 2010. Pachon announced his resignation this past week, and the Pope has also mentioned that he is considering “early retirement”.

Bergoglio’s remarks about satanic practices have been included in the Prosecutor’s case against him, along with new evidence from Vatican sources detailing the Pope’s recent efforts to cover up Ninth Circle activities and disrupt the Court through covert means. This evidence will be described in upcoming Public Information Bulletins from the Prosecutor’s Office.

Common Law Training Update: Establishing Legitimate Courts by Restoring or Creating Sovereign Republics

Common Law Training Update from The International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ) -

Establishing Legitimate Courts by Restoring or Creating Sovereign Republics

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Brussels and New York City:

As of today, over two hundred volunteers in nine countries are undergoing training as common law peace officers and as members of Direct Action Units. Over three quarters of these trainees are based in the United States of America, England, and Canada.

In America, the largest concentration of trainees is in the mid western states. This fact has compelled us to work with local organizers to establish a Regional North Plains Common Law Court embracing North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan. Similar regional councils are being encouraged wherever there are clusters of trainees, especially in Texas, Montana, Idaho and Missouri, in Florida, New York and Pennsylvania, and all over New England and California.

Having a strong tradition of common law as well as locally elected sheriffs, Americans in our movement have a definite head start and advantage not enjoyed in most other countries. The American common law jury courts are guaranteed constitutionally, which is why they are already lawful and legitimate: a fact that has allowed us to already recruit five serving county sheriffs into our network.

In Canada and England, the job is in many ways more difficult. While Americans are simply reclaiming their own Republican system of law and government, our British and Canadian members have never had such an enduring system, and must establish it in order to create the lawful and constitutional basis for common law courts and peace officers. This step is in fact a necessity now that the Crown of England and its convicted head of state have been lawfully disestablished as de jure authorities.

There is no lawful government or system of law in England and Canada anymore because of the criminal and arbitrary nature of the Crown of England and its parent body in Rome. Citizens of those countries must therefore create a new Constitution and Republican government to replace the Crown, and lawfully establish common law courts of record and their officers.

In Canada, this step has already begun. Last year, a Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata was established in Winnipeg, Manitoba to organize a Constitutional Convention to form a sovereign Republic. That body will convene the first Republican Assembly this autumn that will constitutionally guarantee the rule of common law and its court system in Canada.

This past year, agents of the Provisional Council worked with the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels to issue lawful Stand Down Orders to the judges, police, soldiers, civil servants and politicians of Canada, and to all other agents of the defunct “crown of england”. Those Orders and the new Republic and its common law courts will be ratified at the first Constitutional Convention for the Republic of Kanata, no later than September 15, 2014.

What does this mean for common law activists and trainees in Canada, as well as England? Quite simply, training in these countries must proceed hand in hand with the establishment of a Republican government and Constitution in your respective countries. Doing so will give you not only lawful power but the legal and moral credibility to answer the question, “From where do you get your authority?”.

In the American Republic and under Natural Law, the people are Sovereigns with no rulers over them. God is the law, the people are under God, and all government is under the People, who exercise all ultimate authority. Despite the present illegal rule of de facto, corporate bodies in the “United States”, Inc., the Republican model is still the only lawful one in America. The very notion of the people being sovereigns is a startling idea to most of the world, and to the people of “crown” countries, who have been brainwashed from a young age to see themselves as “subjects” of a de facto ruler and not as self governing sovereigns.

Massive public education is therefore a key aspect of our common law work, and one of the main jobs of trained sheriffs and Direct Action Unit members. But that work must proceed first from a lawfully Chartered common law group that is connected to and is a part of the Republican movement in Canada, and England.

Accordingly, in Canada, every chartered common law group must elect at least one delegate to the Constitutional Convention for the Republic, educate its members about the Republican movement, and actively liase with the Provisional Council in Winnipeg, through republicofkanata@gmail.com .

In England, Australia and all other “crown” countries, a similar Republican framework for the common law courts must be established. This will be the subject of upcoming bulletins. For now, when issuing Stand Down Orders to crown officers, make it clear and state to them that the Orders are lawful instruments issued under the authority of God and the Sovereign People.

One important weapon our English activists have in doing so is the High Court Proclamation of January 22, 1649 that dissolved the British monarchy and vested all authority in the People gathered in Covenant, meaning at the time, Parliament. Copies of this binding Proclamation will be sent to our English activists for use in their dealings with former “crown” agents.

Finally, because these constitutional efforts may slow the immediate establishing of bona fide common law courts and peace officers outside America, remember that our Direct Action Units (DAU’s) have been created to fill that gap. DAU’s can involve any sworn citizen and will be taking immediate action to enforce standing arrest warrants, detain child rapists and seize property of convicted criminal bodies like the Vatican, as described in the www.itccs.org posting of May 16, 2014.

Contact itccscentral@gmail.com to join or form a DAU in your area, and to take longer term sheriff training.

Urgent Update from the International Common Law Court of Justice

Posted on September 17, 2012 by itccs

Kevin Annett September 17, 2012 Announcement Summons Issued
http://youtu.be/AboMuE2A9mE

Hello again and welcome. This is September 17, 2012, and I’m Kevin Annett with the International Common Law Court of Justice.

Today, the Prosecutor’s Office of our Court is issuing Public Summonses to thirty two officials of church and state around the world, charging them with criminal offenses and summoning them to appear in our court. This Summons and the names and positions of these officials will be read today so that the world is able to follow these historic proceedings.

This Summons has particular force right now because of the refusal of the named churches and persons to respond this week to ten measures of justice demanded of them by their victims – and by a consequential Banishment Proclamation that has been issued against these churches by organizations of abuse survivors around the world.

Our Court has received reports that yesterday, in Ireland, the Netherlands, Canada and the United States, roman catholic churches were occupied by church victims and other citizens, and church officials there were issued with banishment and eviction notices, which declared these churches to be open, public space in which these same church officials were now trespassing. These notices were also posted in town council offices and public places in these countries.

In the light of these actions, we call upon the church and government officials named in this Public Summons today to appreciate the seriousness of the protest and reclamation movement that is growing against them – a movement for real justice and recovery – and to therefore respond to this Summons and answer for their actions before the world, in our public court of law.

Let me read now the Public Summons that is being sent today the officials who will be named afterwards:

PUBLIC SUMMONS

Issued under De Jure Naturalis by the Human Rights Trial Division of The International Common Law Court of Justice (Established under the Customary Land Law Jurisdiction of Sovereign Nations)

Brussels

September 15, 2012

To: (Name of Defendant)

In the Matter of HRTD Case Docket Numbers A-091512-001 through 005 inclusive

BE ADVISED that you have been named as a defendant and a primary witness in a matter brought before this Court for adjudication, in that you are charged in a personal and corporate capacity with ordering, aiding and abetting, colluding in and concealing Crimes against Humanity and other criminal acts, and with personally and deliberately participating in a Criminal Conspiracy.

BE FURTHER ADVISED that you or your attorney have ten (10) working days as of this date to respond in writing to this Public Summons and to indicate your willingness to participate in a pre-Trial Conference and Examination.

Failure by you or your attorney to respond to this Summons can be understood and interpreted by this Court to mean that you do not dispute or challenge the charges made against you by the Plaintiffs named in these cases, and that by your silence you are consenting to the proceedings. As a potentially incriminating admission, such a refusal to respond may cause a guilty verdict to be delivered against you by this Court in absentia.

If you do not respond to this Summons, the Court will reserve the right to appoint a legal counsel to represent you in your absence.

A complete list of charges, specifications and Plaintiffs in these cases will be forwarded to you separately.

Following depositions, the opening arguments before this Court will commence on Monday, October 15, 2012, in the absence of a pre-Trial Conference and Examination.

Issued by the Office of the Clerk of Court, Human Rights Trial Division, ICLCJ, Brussels, and through the Offices of the Court in Rome, London, Dublin, New York and Toronto.

Signed and sealed, 17 September 2012

This Summons is being issued today to the following persons in their named capacities:

Joseph Ratzinger, alias Pope Benedict, Head of the Roman Catholic Church Incorporated, Rome

Adolfo Nicholas Pachon, Superior General of the so-called Society of Jesus, or Jesuit Order

Pedro Lopez Quintana, Papal Nuncio to Canada

Angelo Sodano, College of Cardinals, Rome

Tarcisio Bertone, College of Cardinals, Rome

Angelo Bagnasco, College of Cardinals, Rome

Elizabeth Windsor, alias Queen of England, London

Robert Paulson, Superintendent of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police of Canada

Inspector Peter Montague, E Division, RCMP

Daniel Fulton, Chief Executive Officer of Weyerhauser Logging Corporation

Ron Huinink and other members of the Law Society of British Columbia

Former members of the congregation of St. Andrew’s United Church, Port Alberni, Canada

Sean Atleo, so-called Grand Chief, Assembly of First Nations

William Montour, Chairperson of the Six Nations Confederacy

Head officers of the New England Company, London

These persons have until October 2, 2012, to respond to this Public Summons, after which criminal proceedings will commence against them.

In closing I wish to add a personal appeal and message to all of you watching this broadcast.

Last year, after commencing preparations for this court, I was arrested, imprisoned and then deported from England without any reason given. I was informed recently that the British Home Office has ordered my detention if I try returning to England.

So let me say that in the course of my travels throughout Europe over the next few weeks, or upon my return to north america, if I am arrested and held in communicado, I rely on each of you to confront the authorities about my arrest, and their crude attempts to obstruct justice and shut down our efforts to protect the children of our world from predators in power.

No amount of repression can stop the wave of justice represented by the survivors of church terror who are now coming forward. By jailing or harassing individuals, the state is simply empowering more of us by awakening us to the tyranny around us.

But let me say on the record that if anything happens to me or to those I work with over the next, crucial period, I ask you all to hold the following authorities responsible: the Home Secretary and security forces of Great Britain, the Vatican secret service and assassination network known as the Holy Alliance, and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and the RCMP.

Once again, I call upon the police forces of every country to obey their oaths of office and defend our civil liberties, and refuse to protect and aid child raping criminal organizations like the Vatican and other churches named in our Court.

Please stay tuned on October 2 for more updates from that Court. And remember the words of the English poet Percy Shelley, who wrote after the infamous Peterloo massacre of the poor in Manchester in 1819,

Rise like lions after slumber, in unvanquishable number;

Shake your chains to earth like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you.

You are many; they are few.

Thank you.

Enforcing the Banishment Proclamation against the Catholic Church: A Practical Guide to Cleansing your local Temple

Posted on September 11, 2012 by itccs
by Kevin D. Annett
(Banishment Proclamation is posted below)

That old trouble maker and community organizer, Saul Alinsky, once said that no public action was worth doing if the people doing it didn’t have fun. More to the point, he elaborated that sustained mockery of the powerful, like by occupying their sacred turf, was something they had no defense against.

The horrified reaction of Catholic Bishops everywhere to our occupation of their churches during Sunday services seems to bear out Saul. So it’s delightful to know that we few in the vanguard of a growing army of justice for children have a way to really grab the clerics where it hurts.

This article is an accompanying piece to our just-issued Proclamation of Banishment against the Roman Catholic Church. It’s a sort of “how to” manual with practical hints of ways to sustain our campaign to expose and open up these churches long past the day when the Banishment is pronounced.

The Fly in the Elephant’s Ear

First, a word on our general strategic situation: our forces are like a fly in an elephant’s ear – tiny, but lethal in the right moment and place. That’s because we have the truth, solid evidence, and a potential army of witnesses on our side. Our strongest weapon is to always stand loudly and clearly on that evidence, and to keep shoving it in the face of the church and the public, in ways they don’t expect.

The Catholic Church Inc. is the oldest corporation in history, and therefore the most vulnerable and the least flexible. We are the opposite: we have nothing to lose, are adaptable, and completely unpredictable. That’s how guerrilla movements historically operate, and win against seemingly unbeatable tyrants.

The best example I like about what our little guerrilla groups can do is how a dozen or so of us in Canada forced the Indian residential schools genocide into the political and media mainstream in the spring of 2007 simply by occupying churches in Vancouver and Toronto during their Sunday services. And years before that, in the fall of 1995, by picketing the United Church head office in Vancouver I forced its top officers to prematurely issue a public statement denying that children were killed in their Indian schools – even before I had accused them of causing such deaths!

In short, a big enemy, properly goaded, will cause its own undoing, since it knows it’s guilty and is operated by lawyers and bureaucrats whose bottom line is a purely financial one: that is, calculating everything on the basis of what they stand to lose.

Practical Steps: Be Creative and Have a Ball!

What we’re starting around the world is an enormous reclamation movement: we are telling the Catholic Church to get off our land or conform to the will of the people. We are taking over churches and making them open, public space. And from the reaction so far, including from over three hundred ecstatic volunteers in seven countries, we have struck a chord in the public imagination.

Our own worst enemy now is our own fear and lack of imagination.

First, about fear: it’s what religion relies on, especially Catholicism. Most of us have been conditioned to fear churches and clergy, and assume that those cloistered altars and pews are somehow sacred and untouchable realms. We’re even told by some statutes that to “disrupt” a church service is an offense under the law.

In practice, that’s a statute that cops will never enforce, because they know it’s bullshit. After all, what is “disruption”? Somebody challenging a priest or questioning his interpretation of scripture? Maybe an old granny should be jailed for coughing during a priestly homily?

In our case, our occupation of churches during the service has always been done respectfully and non-violently. It’s always the priests who resort to violence in that situation.

For instance, I was personally grabbed and put into an arm lock by an enraged cleric at Holy Rosary cathedral in Vancouver once when I stood peacefully with fifty others bearing a banner “All the Children Need a Proper Burial”. The priest’s absurdity was obvious to everyone in the pews that day, and in fact, a few minutes later, the whole congregation stood reverentially as we walked past with the banner.

Of course, what we’re planning this week and beyond is more permanent than a one-time occupation. We will be actively dis-establishing the Catholic Church, and taking over their premises. And for that, we need serious and wider community support.

We will be creating that support by breaking the ice and naming what is, and doing something. Most people hang back and are secretly inspired and thrilled by the doers, no matter how risky is the doing. What gets them on board is when they see that the doing is happening more than once. So above all, we need to sustain our effort.

But here are two very simple things that will guarantee community involvement, and even media interest: music, and humor.

Some folks in Vancouver are planning a Public Frock Off in local catholic churches, where known child rapists and other crooks among the clergy will be named and escorted from the premises. They’re asking everybody to show up and witness the Frock Off, and to please bring drums, instruments and banners for the event.

A local singer-friend of mine in Vancouver plans to sing from the pulpit a diddy he composed called “I Saw Jesus Today”, which reminds people how you won’t find Christ in a church but out among the suffering.

In the coming days, an aboriginal women’s group in Canada plans to occupy and open up their local catholic church as a free daycare and safe house for threatened people: wonderfully appropriate, when you think of it, considering the role of the same church in creating generations of tortured native women and men. I love the image of a hundred dark skinned kids running around a fancy catholic sanctuary!

The sky’s the limit in these actions. Some survivors’ groups in Europe plan to open up catholic churches as the site of Street Corner Tribunals, where victims can name the crimes and the criminals. And in Canada and the USA, our people will often rely on simple “infiltration” of Sunday services, sitting among the parishioners and speaking with them, or mounting the pulpit to address the congregation.

Pulpit seizures are a fine and honorable tradition, after all. The early Quakers and Ranters in England did it nicely, inciting church goers to seek God in the world and their neighbors, and not in “idolatrous temples”.

And speaking of temples and their cleansing, Jesus himself – on the one occasion he was ever in a church – used a tactic that we’d recommend as well. Need we say more?

What to Do if …

Okay, so your cheerful hordes have entered a church and camped out, read the Banishment, and been told by the grumpy ushers to leave. You don’t, so they call the cops. Now what?

Well, going into a church isn’t a crime. It’s your public right, especially since those of you who pay taxes are actually funding the place, and that makes it public space. And that’s the first thing you tell the boys in blue when they arrive: sorry officers, but this is a religious gathering in public, and we’re all worshiping what really matters.

The cops and anybody, in fact, can get in trouble under the law if they disturb a religious gathering. We’ve found that at this point, the gendarmes either leave or stand around looking helpless: in which case, go ahead and start educating them about the crimes of the church they’ve shown up to protect.

And that’s a key point: the police are sworn to be public servants and not the private security force for institutionalized child rapists. So tell them that, and tell them you’re deputizing them to be public peace officers who’ll protect your right to gather peacefully inside and outside the church.

We did that in Vancouver churches on three occasions. Each time, the cops left.

But life is unpredictable, and what if the police or some catholic thugs try using force to evict you? Unlikely. The church’s chief concerns are their public image, their property and their revenue. Violence in the church threatens all three of those. So stand pat on your rights, your peaceful occupation, and the truth that the church killed and still harms children, and you will retain the moral and practical high ground.

In the Long Run

Displacing and replacing the church is our long term aim. These Banishments and Occupations are merely our opening salvos. On those occasions where native groups in Canada have ordered the catholic church off their land, the church has complied, since it knows it was squatting there illegally all along.

In the long run, we will be relying on such evictions like the ones ordered by hereditary elder Kiapilano of the Squamish nation, who in March 2008 issued eviction notices to all of the churches that killed his relatives in residential schools: the Church of England, the Catholic, and the United Church.

For now, our Ten Measures statement (May 4 posting, www.itccs.org) is what needs to be broadcasted to catholics everywhere during our occupations: that is, the catholic folks can stay, as long as they agree to these ten steps. This will help force church goers to choose, and will help launch a new sort of Reformation, if history tells us anything.

For now, be bold, imaginative, and film everything that you do, and post it on youtube. Send us the links. We will be spreading news and updates to you all.

Remember: what you do today will save the life and the sanity of a child tomorrow – and may even resurrect the memory and hopes of the little ones murdered by Imperial Christianity.

Carry it on! The world is watching!

banishment proclamation

PUBLIC PROCLAMATION OF BANISHMENT
issued against the Roman Catholic Church, Inc.
on the sixteenth day of September, 2012
and read to Roman Catholic Church officials and congregations around the world

Whenever any power becomes a destructive and uncontrollable force in our communities and endangers the lives and well being of our children, it is the inherent, lawful and customary right of the People to expel that power from their midst, especially when constituted authority refuses to do so.

The Roman Catholic Church as a whole has become such a destructive force, causing centuries of suffering, plundering, genocide, warfare and death, maintaining a regime of institutionalized terror against children, protecting child rapists and murderers in its ranks, and holding itself unaccountable for its crimes. This criminal regime compels its own clergy to obstruct justice by protecting child rapists among them, from a law promulgated by the Pope himself and by the Vatican.

Since it is we the People who have through our taxes and tax exemption laws allowed such a church to operate among us and even profit off its exploitation and torture of our children, we the People have the legitimate right and duty to annul such tax exemptions and legal privileges now enjoyed by the Roman Catholic Church.

By the same measure, since the Roman Catholic Church is a publicly funded institution, we the People have the right to freely enter any such Church to ensure that children are not being harmed, that evidence of wrongdoing is not being concealed, and that child abusers are not operating under church protection. And ultimately, we the People have the right to prevent the same Church from operating in our community by banishing it outright when it proves resistant to change.

Therefore, firm in this knowledge and our right, as well as our sacred duty to defend all children, we the People make the following Public Proclamation:

The Roman Catholic Church Incorporated, and all of its dioceses, parishes and agencies, are henceforth as of this date and forever declared to be banished and denied the right to operate in our communities.

Individual Roman Catholic congregations are exempt from this Banishment if they agree to abide by the ten terms set forth below.

The Church as a whole or individual congregations will be allowed the right to resume operations in our communities only when it agrees to and implements the following measures:

1. The Pope and College of Cardinals, and all of their Bishops and other authorities, must annul the Canon Law doctrine known as Crimen Solicitationas and all other rules and policies that give aid and protection to anyone who harms children.

2. The same Church authorities must immediately defrock and deny any compensation to any and all of its clergy who have harmed children or who in the future do harm to children, and to anyone who protects such abusers.

3. The Church must issue full reparations to survivors of harm done by church employees or clergy, according to the wishes of those survivors.

4. The Church must unconditionally surrender for a proper burial the remains of all those children and others who died in church facilities.

5. The Church must unconditionally return all land and wealth taken from those incarcerated in their facilities, and all wealth generated by their exploitation as low paid or unpaid laborers.

6. The Church must unconditionally surrender all the evidence and the perpetrators of crimes done by the Church against children, indigenous people and others.

7. The Church must agree to the public licensing of all of its clergy, Bishops and employees as accountable and supervised public servants who take a binding, Public Oath to unconditionally defend the rights and sanctity of all children and expose anyone who harms children, even if this Oath contradicts Church customs and policies.

8. The Church must agree to withdraw from all tax exemptions, financial concordats, legal or diplomatic immunity, and all other privileges granted to it by governments.

9. The Church must annul the status of the Vatican as a state and abolish Rome’s authority over its congregations.

10. The Church must redistribute its wealth and the resources of the Vatican Bank to church victims and the community, as Christ himself commands.

If the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and Clergy of the Roman Catholic Church publicly agree to these Ten Requirements of Humanity and the Law, the Public Banishment of the Church will be suspended, and it will be allowed to legally and morally operate in our communities.

However, if these authorities refuse to implement these measures, all church buildings, assets and properties of the Roman Catholic Church Incorporated and its dioceses and parishes will continue as of this date to be under Public Ownership and Control, and will be freely occupied and used by the community for its benefit. Any officials or clergy of the Church found on these Public Premises after this date will be considered to be illegally trespassing, and may face immediate Citizens’ Arrest.

We call upon all members of the Roman Catholic Church and all of its clergy to stand now with humanity and justice, and abide by this Proclamation in order to forge a new consensus and faith that unconditionally upholds the sanctity and well being of all children and all people.

As of today, under the authority of this Proclamation, all members of our communities, and especially our homeless and poorest members, are invited and encouraged to permanently occupy and reclaim Roman Catholic churches everywhere, which are now and forever proclaimed to be Open, Public Space.

Issued Sunday, September 16, 2012, at 12 noon Greenwich Mean Time.

An ITCCS Urgent Action Alert and Call to Mobilize

An ITCCS Urgent Alert and Call To Mobilize
http://youtu.be/9W9rd2W7yN0

Officials of the Vatican, the Crown of England and other accused parties will face summary banishment and trial commencing in exactly one month if they do not abide by ten measures issued to them on May 4.

This Urgent Action Alert calls upon just men and women everywhere to prepare themselves to launch church occupations, public protests, citizens’ arrests and other direct actions beginning on September 15. The purpose of these actions will be to disestablish and bring to justice criminal organizations and their officials that have harmed, killed or exploited children or committed other crimes against humanity.

Click here for a copy of our original ultimatum to the Vatican Incorporated and its chief executive officer, Joseph Ratzinger. The same ultimatum has been issued by us to over 150 officials of the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Church of England, and United Church of Canada, the governments of Canada and Great Britain, and major pharmaceutical companies.

The ITCCS will lead this public campaign at the head of hundreds of volunteers and organizers in Canada, the United States, Ireland, Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain and Australia.

We urge the reader and our supporters everywhere to take the following five steps of preparedness:

1. Distribute an official ITCCS leaflet at Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Churches (Methodist-Presbyterian) in your community beginning Sunday, September 2. This leaflet will be issued to you by August 30.

2. Gather at least three to five other people to form a local ITCCS action group to regularly leaflet and hold protests and direct actions.

3. Volunteer to be a Citizen Juror in our International Common Law Court of Justice that will convene on September 15.

4. Arrange local media interviews and speaking engagements for ITCCS field organizer Kevin Annett.

5. Distribute this notice and all of our emails and You Tube broadcasts throughout your internet networks.

Please be clear that you will be acting within the Law when you confront churches and organizations that have harmed children and obstructed justice.

That is because after September 15, 2012, if these churches and other bodies do not respond to our Ultimatum they will be declared public enemies and will be banished from our communities. They will have lost all public and legal protection and their property will be considered free and open public space under common law jurisdiction. Their officials will face summary arrest and expulsion for aiding and protecting child rapists, and known offenders will be stripped of their office.

To enforce these actions, we are requiring that all police officers in these nine countries take a Public Oath of Service to help us protect the children of our communities by not protecting these criminal bodies, and by serving and enforcing subpoena and arrest warrants against church and corporate officials.

That is, we will be deputizing the police to obey and enforce their public oath of office, or stand down from their positions and be replaced by duly sworn Common Law Peace Officers.

Now is the time to take heart and unite in defense of our children and our liberty. We rely on each one of you to make real the hopes of the innocent.

Further updates and instructions will be issued by ITCCS Central on September 1.

The Elders, ITCCS Brussels

Public Declaration to Police Officers, Civil Servants and other Agents of the Crown of Englandroya

The Common Law Court of Justice investigating Crimes of Church and State

Public Declaration to Police Officers, Civil Servants and other Agents of the Crown of England – Issued by the Judicial Oversight Panel of the Common Law Court of Justice investigating Crimes of Church and State (Brussels – London)

On September 15, 2012, an International Common Law Court, duly constituted under the Law of Nations, will be convened to consider evidence and hear charges of Crimes against Humanity brought against the Crown of England, the Vatican and other parties.

In the event that the Crown is convicted in this duly constituted Court for such crimes as Genocide, Child Trafficking and waging a War of Aggression against indigenous nations, your continued allegiance and service of this convicted party will constitute criminal collusion and obstruction of justice.

Prior to committing such an indictable offense, you will be asked by this Court to refrain from implicating yourselves with such criminal parties by assuming a position of neutrality in relation to the Crown of England as a possible party to a crime.

As servants of the Public Peace and Welfare rather than of a potentially convicted authority, you will be asked by this Court to place yourselves at the service of a fair and impartial investigation of documented crimes involving the Crown of England.

Accordingly, this Court will be requiring police officers in Canada, England, Australia and other nations to assist it in presenting summonses and other warrants to Crown officials, to aid this Court in the pursuit of justice and due process, and to enforce any verdicts and decisions of this Court regarding the culpability of the Crown for Crimes against Humanity.

This Court will also require that in the course of this trial and upon summary conviction of the Crown, civil servants cease and desist from collecting taxes and administering laws on behalf of the Crown of England and its client governments in Canada, England, Australia and elsewhere, lest by such assisting of parties convicted of Crimes against Humanity these civil servants violate international law and the verdicts of this Court.

If you officers continue to serve as agents of the Crown under these circumstances, you will have betrayed your public trust and responsibility, and disqualified yourselves from holding public office.

In such a eventuality, you may face summary arrest and trial for aiding and abetting those engaged in Crimes against Humanity.

We trust that you will fulfill what is lawful and just, and stand with our Court of Common Law Justice as duly sworn Public Peace Officers. To ensure this compliance, your officers will be approached by agents of our Court to take such an Oath of Service. We expect your cooperation in this matter.

A New Focus and some Tactical Advice concerning our Upcoming Actions

Notice from Kevin Annett and Occupy the Vatican:

Dear friends and supporters,

Groups in twenty cities across the world are launching protests, occupations and public defrockings of known child-raping priests at Catholic churches, beginning this Palm Sunday and Easter, on April 1 and 8.

These protests have until now been very effective in gathering public and media support, and exposing crimes by the churches.

On Palm Sunday, 2007, for instance, our Friends and Relatives of the Disappeared (FRD) network in Vancouver and Toronto occupied Catholic churches during their services, alongside survivors of the murderous Indian residential schools; and after considerable media coverage of the FRD actions, barely a month later, the Canadian government was forced to address in Parliament the matter of the dead residential school children for the first time.

Thus, our occupation actions in churches achieved more in one day in exposing the Canadian genocide than had been won in the previous five or more years.

With all of the international exposure since 2007 of church-sponsored crimes against humanity, including the personal complicity of the pope in concealing child rape and trafficking, the potential impact of these direct occupations of criminal churches is infinitely greater, especially now that we have linked hands with the Global occupy movement and Occupy the Vatican.

We therefore urge you all to be as audacious and public as possible in the actions you mount during April and beyond, as we unite around the call to disestablish and reclaim the space of churches engaged in crimes against humanity and children.

But remember always that our aim is to reach the hearts and the minds of church goers and congregations, and separate them from the hierarchy of the church corporations that have committed these crimes in their name and with their support and money.

In this regard, the work of a new network of serving clergy within Protestant and Catholic churches, known as Not in Our Name, is very encouraging, for it represents a movement within official Christianity to repudiate the child raping, genocidal legacy of Christendom. Their statement is reproduced here, and we urge you to circulate it to church goers as part of your actions on April 1 and 8.

Further in this vein, we’ve found that psychologically, church goers tend to close ranks against a perceived external threat like angry protestors, and can’t hear what they have to say.

Conversely, when we individually infiltrate church services and speak to congregants one on one, we outflank this aversion and make headway with the church goers. Using such methods last November, our Occupy the Vatican group in Vancouver actually caused some of the burly “Knights of Columbus” who were barring us access to the main Catholic cathedral to begin weeping as they were told of the missing and murdered children in Catholic schools.

In addition, infiltration methods into church services downplay and negate our small numbers and play up our real strength, which is our compassionate, moral high ground of our message. When we have fifty or a hundred people, then we can stage overt and visible actions; but short of that, if you are but a handful next Sunday, each of you can be a formidable army just by sharing the truth we hold with Christians who are ignorant of the murderous nature and history of their own church.

For this reason, we urge you this Sunday, and the next, to enter your targeted church individually, or in pairs, and disseminate information to people, try to make a statement during the “announcements” section of the service, or even try unfurling a banner or sign respectfully and peacefully during the service. There is no need for a mandatory protest outside if there are only a few of you, since your impact will be much greater inside the building rather than on the sidewalk.

Finally, and of direct relevance to this new focus and tactic, is the fact that we have been issued a legal Right of Entry into publicly-funded buildings like the taxpayer-supported Catholic and Protestant churches in your city. This legal right has been explicitly authorized in writing by various indigenous tribal chiefs, such as siem Kiapilano in Vancouver and some of the Mohawk elders, but more generally, it is a common law right that all of us enjoy based on something called a Necessity Defense under that law.

That is, citizens have the right to enter any place and arrest those suspect if they believe a crime is being committed and the police and courts refuse to intervene.

Since cops and governments everywhere are colluding openly in protecting the churches and their crimes against the innocent, our Right of Entry is thus required and guaranteed. And if the police or private security thugs try to evict or stop you from entering the church buildings, charge them publicly, on film, with aiding and abetting known child raping-and-killing organizations.

Rarely do churches want that kind of bad publicity.

In other words, it isn’t you who is trespassing or disrupting a religious service: on the contrary, you are engaged in a moral and community-protection action that must not be interfered with.

It’s vital that there are at least three or four of you working together on any such direct entry strategy; that someone not openly identified with your group videos the event or U tube posting afterwards; and that you try to directly reach the people in the pews.

We are enclosing a leaflet (download rtf here and below) for distribution in the churches on April 1 and 8.

Please send us reports and post the filmed proof of your action on You tube or by emailing it to us for our re-posting.

Further updates are pending.

May all strength and resolve be with you all, as you remember why we act: for the dead children, and for those who will suffer tomorrow if we don’t act today to end the power of criminal church corporations.

To all of you across Canada, the USA, Ireland, England, Italy, Latin America and Australia: audacity and courage!

Here is the text of the leaflet – please download the rtf and print and distribute at catholic churches on April 1 and 8:

Stop the Vatican’s War of Terror on Children and Liberty!

This Church is under Public Occupation until Justice is Won!

Statement to Church Goers and the Public:

Sunday, April 1 and 8, 2012

We are claiming this church as public space today under a Common Law Necessity Defense, which requires that citizens act to protect themselves when police and courts refuse to do so.

The Roman Catholic Church is a clear and ongoing threat to the safety of children everywhere.

Not only has it caused the death of untold hundreds of thousands of children in its orphanages, Indian residential schools and sweatshops, but Church policy requires that priests conceal rape and violence against children in their parishes, under the papal directive called Crimen sollicitationis.

Your child is not safe in this church, or anywhere in the catholic system.

Pope Joseph Ratzinger is personally implicated in concealing child rape and trafficking in his church, and is facing legal action for obstructing justice.

Aboriginal elders have issued eviction orders to Catholic churches on their territories for the Vatican’s crimes against humanity. We in Occupy the Vatican are enforcing those orders today, and declaring this church as free and open public space, especially to the poor and the homeless.

We ask all church goers to respect these facts by not obstructing our actions, and by withholding all money and tithing to this church.

We ask you to join with us to uphold the rights and safety of children, and hold the Vatican accountable for its centuries of crimes, and its ongoing injury to the innocent.
