Whoever grasps and holds onto the essential energy (shih) of a situation will control the outcome of any battle and the fate of any opponent, no matter how powerful they are. – Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Men always begin revolutions with their eyes fixed on the past. – Frederich Engels
What is nothing has been chosen to bring to nothing all the things that are. – 1 Corinthians 1:28
Imagine for a moment the present global tyranny not simply as a visible system of corporatism, violence and corruption, but as a vast energy transfer, sucking the wealth, vitality and life from billions of people and the biosphere itself into one massive machine. Call that machine whatever you like; its nature and behavior is geared towards a single purpose, and that is the absorption of life into itself. It is one enormous feeder, and we are its morsels.
To first understand this simple truth equips us inwardly to stop this insatiable complex and our participation in it, far better than can mere political analysis. But understanding alone does not free us to act.
All interactions in our universe involve an essential energy that guides the movement of every particle, and determines every outcome. Sun Tzu called this energy “shih”; Plato saw it as a pre-existing essence behind the mask of appearances. Some like to call it God. Regardless of its nomenclature, this Source that binds our reality is like a mighty river that can either sweep us along helplessly, or be utilized by us to alter reality. Every ruler understands this simple fact, even while the rest of us have been trained not to grasp it, and thereby are kept eyeless in a harness held by a few.
Those who understand and utilize this “shih” are able to control the thoughts and actions of the multitudes of humanity only as long as the latter are devoid of their own access to shih. The primary means of stripping humanity of attaining its normally inherent shih power is by using fear and trauma based conditioning at a very young age to cause people to habitually surrender and defer at every level to some “higher” external power, and thereby transfer their own particle of shih to that power.
Such an unending energy transfer from the many to the few is the basis of all elite rule in our world. And yet such a system is inherently unstable, since following Natural Law, the nature of shih as with any energy system is to disseminate equally and be held in common, and not privately: a fact that invalidates as contrary to the natural order all individual rule, whether by kings, presidents, popes or corporate oligarchies.
We know from our own experience that the loss of shih from the many to the few is not simply unnatural and disharmonious; it is so constant and systemic that it cannot be resisted by individual effort alone, since our individuality has been conditioned to operate habitually rather than consciously. We think like we eat – automatically – and therefore without shih. For instance, when faced with political repression by the government, our first reflex is to surrender our shih once again to them by “pressuring” them to give us justice through ritualized protest and petitioning, relying on their courts and government.
We do not seem capable of shifting our attention away from the existing “authorities” simply because we have no working experience of self-government: of what our own shih actually is. And thus like any lost child, we cannot try to change our world without continually deferring to the “powers that be”, whether that be a sympathetic judge, or a “progressive” politician, or even a spiritual adviser. Our imprinted slavery makes it impossible for us to collectively reclaim ourselves, and our world.
Erasing a conditioned imprint may begin within the individual, but it is not manifested individualistically; for collectivity is the nature of universal shih, which binds all phenomena in a “mutual garment of destiny and interconnectedness”.
In any successful revolution, the personal awakening of individuals inexorably causes a collective ripple effect in many other hearts and minds that generates a new kind of “group shih”: one that is unalterably opposed to the shih of the rulers. This new energy system is a living and working counter-culture that draws energy and power away from the rulers and their system, and returns it to the multitude of people, provided the latter can hold onto it as a group by retaining their own new and separate identity.
The very nature and purpose of our struggle today is to achieve precisely such a new energy transfer, and allow all of humanity to reclaim their natural shih and the collective liberty that it bestows. This purpose must continually guide our thoughts, words and deeds.
Applying Shih Knowledge to our Present Situation
The Chinese general Sun Tzu, writing thousands of years ago, had the best practical understanding of how such an awareness of the essential energy behind reality can and must be used in concrete struggles, especially in war and politics. “Nothing is permanent in life except conflict and change” he wrote in his Art of War. “One either masters the shih of one’s opponent or is mastered by it.”
If we set aside our western philosophical bias that dualistically separates matter from spirit, we recognize that Sun Tzu is accurately describing the dance that occurs in any conflict with an adversary. As he writes,
“Enemies, like all opposites, are mutually dependent on one another, being part of a greater unity and purpose. Thus, enemies are defeated not by their destruction but by their absorption into that greater whole.”
In short, we can win any engagement not by outnumbering or crushing an opponent, but by re-directing his own essential energy into the outcome we desire. This fact is of obvious relevance to us, since as a small movement we face what appears to be overwhelming odds.
A classic example of how a small force can triumph over a huge adversary is found from our own campaign in Canada to indict church and state for Genocide. That campaign, consisting of a few dozen of us in three cities, successfully forced Canada and its churches to respond on our terms by admitting their crime and helping to commence their own dissolution. For by acceding to the new reality we had presented, the old matrix called “Christian Canada” surrendered to us its shih by responding on our terms. This surrender helped to energize our agenda of disestablishing Crown and Church: a process that is continuing now to unfold. This new power alignment is crumbling Canada and laying the basis for a new shih arrangement that we call the Republic of Kanata.
What achieved this victory were not our numbers but our strategic position, our visible persistence, and our ability to out maneuver and re-direct the shih of the system, armed as we were with an undeniable truth and evidence that kept both church and state constantly fearful and on the defensive.
Similarly but even more stunning is the other, greater victory that flowed from this first one: namely, the blow against the Vatican in Rome, and our historic deposing of Pope Benedict in February 2013 by our public conviction of him and other top catholic officials for the same genocide.
This successful mastering by us of a hugely more powerful opponent’s shih happened because our small movement deliberately used a strategy of guerrilla warfare, which is summed up by Sun Tzu thus:
First, when I am few and my enemy is many, I can use the few to strike the many because those whom I battle are restricted, being larger and more unwieldy. Their strength thereby becomes their weakness.
Second, do not respond to the ground your enemy has prepared for you, but instead, shape their ground. Then they have no alternative but to be led by you, as if it was their own idea.
Third, hide the time of battle from an enemy, and make what he loves and defends your first objective. By aiming at and seizing what the enemy holds dear, their greater strength and plans are rendered useless, and they must stop and respond on your terms, no matter how small are your forces.
Thus, on March 17, 2008 during Palm Sunday services, two of our action groups occupied without warning the largest catholic cathedrals in Vancouver and Toronto, making headlines across Canada with our demand that the genocidal churches be prosecuted and forced to return the remains of the Indian children they killed. We also announced that we were commencing an international court action to charge Canada with genocide.
Less than a month later, the government announced for the first time an “inquiry” into the missing residential school children. This led directly to the official Parliamentary “apology” just three months later, in July 2008, and the subsequent official admission by Ottawa that genocide did indeed occur in Canada at the cost of thousands of dead children.
By striking unexpectedly at the Achilles’ heel of the main instigator of genocide – behind its own lines, amidst its most “sacred” ritual – we not only shocked and frightened the enemy but created the field of battle and forced our opponent in its fear to respond on our terms. Since then, no-one in Canada has dared anymore to deny that children were killed in the residential schools, and that it was indeed genocide. In this way, just a few of us reshaped the national narrative; or, in Sun Tzu’s words, we mastered the shih of an enormous adversary and re-directed it on our terms.
Similarly, the shock wave that deposed Pope Benedict has continued to spread, forcing four other resignations by top Vatican officers named in our common law court indictments, and compelling an enormous and desperate public relations effort by the present “pope” to shore up Rome’s collapsing credibility. What is this but living proof of the ability of a small force to absorb the shih of the biggest and oldest enemy imaginable: the Vatican Incorporated?
Compare these stunning victories by a handful of people with the negligible results of many thousands of protestors standing outside government buildings and waving placards, and thereby surrendering their collective shih to their adversary. For the unstated message of any group of protestors to some external power is clearly this: “We acknowledge your authority; you have the power, not us. All we ask is that you change things for us.” This is not change on the terms of the people, but accommodation to elite rule, regardless of the outcome.
Such impotence called protest, like voting or “going through the courts”, is in truth the clearest example of the energy-sucking nature of the machine that relies on such controlled “opposition” to feed its own shih.
In reality, no such diminishing of peoples’ own shih is ever required for change to occur. For the ability for any sized group to capture the shih of the government and any corporate regime has been proven in practice. In energetic terms, this constitutes a reclaiming of power in order to re-balance shih, whose nature is to disseminate and be shared equally. This approach is the only sure means of changing the nature of power, and thereby bringing down tyranny. And yet as we noted, understanding this truth does not automatically make it happen, for the simple fact that we are all a part of what it is we oppose.
The Symbiotic Nature of Shih
It is often remarked – usually as a justification for not getting involved in a radical movement – that “All revolutions just end up replacing one tyrant with another”. From a distance, history seems to bear this out.
The moments where masses of people shake off their chains and govern themselves directly and consciously seem to be episodic and brief; most of the time, the “masses” appear to be like a passive herd led around by some elite or another. But this appearance is in fact illusory; people’s acquiescence to a regime is not the same thing as them actively supporting it. People will act to change things only when they can see and feel that there exists a working alternative to the status quo: that is, only when they are able to recognize and establish a new collective shih. But why does this not seem to happen very often? What is the bulwark that holds people back?
These questions can only be answered in practice by knowing first the symbiotic and interdependent nature of all power and its shih.
Just as darkness and light depend on one another and are aspects of the same phenomenon, so too are opponents in any war or political change. Even the Biblical “war in heaven” was fought between two types of angels, Lucifer in fact meaning a “being of light”. Any struggle is ultimately a dance between the same entity wearing different masks. Just as shih, like water, always seeks the lowest and most common ground, so does any conflict: conscious or not, both sides search for a new symbiosis by which both can survive and prosper.
For this reason, it is impossible for any group of citizens to establish a new society within the framework and institutions of the old regime, since all of their thoughts and hopes are conditioned by it. As Frederich Engels observed so accurately following the aborted European insurrections of 1848, “Men always begin revolutions with their eyes fixed on the past.” And the Italian rebel Giuseppe Garibaldi, who briefly overturned the papacy in 1870, wrote, “One cannot secure the support of the people by calling for an overthrow of society, but instead by assuring them that their security will be preserved by the changes we envision.”
Not surprisingly, such “pragmatic”, backward-looking approaches of power-seeking rebels created no new society, and in fact ended up duplicating the regimes they fought. Nineteenth century European radicals had not read Sun Tzu; nor, for that matter, have most of today’s erstwhile rebels.
To establish a new collective shih, we must not resist or combat the old regime but absorb its own shih, as we did with Canada and the Vatican. And yet in practice, old habits of thought and deference prevent even the best of us from doing so consistently on our own.
I continually experience this within all of the groups I work with. While holding to the vision of a new independent Republic based on common law, our best people will still insist on going into the lawless “crown” or de facto courts to remedy the latest injustice done against them. They cannot simply turn away from the old regime. Their psychological and energetic dependence on what is familiar runs far deeper within them than they understand, because one’s position within the collective symbiosis is largely invisible to the untrained mind. In short, we are all part of a bigger and hidden “group mind” – the Bible calls it our Angel – that can only be nullified by another collective.
What this means in practice is that, regardless of anyone’s degree of personal “awareness”, everyone seems to be waiting in trepidation for something or someone else to make the final break and bring in a new regime. Until then, people tend to accommodate, and worry about how to “protect” themselves and others within the present system. It is therefore hardly surprising that our membership within the Republic and common law movement has remained largely a passive one, with their eyes and feet mired in the past, waiting for someone else’s leadership.
The only remedy for this immobility is provided collectively through the creation of another group identity and system into which we can draw people out of the status quo; and, by that moment when a critical mass is reached and not only consciousness but the capacity to act differently emerges among many people. This emergence is always unpredictable, but when it occurs, a huge shift across society happens almost overnight, as history amply demonstrates. And then the new shih alignment can become an actuality.
In many ways, all that we do today is a preparation for the opportunities created by the moment in time, that upcoming window of action, when a new and free society can come into being from the ground up. To quote Sun Tzu again,
Operations must always be geared to the rapid seizure and exploitation of the key moment of opportunity created in battle, which can never be predicted. The prime purpose of operational commanders is to recognize and act decisively upon such fleeting moments.
The operational commanders, in our case, are the on-the-ground local organizers whose job it is to build the movement in their communities by empowering wider numbers with the idea and reality that they can govern themselves according to a new and higher law, completely separate from the existing institutions. To use an example from American history, local militia across New England were closing down crown courts, burning mortgage deeds and defending the people and their land against British troops, long before the first shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. And only such an already conscious and active populace could have made the Revolution.
In that regard, our convening of the Peoples’ Assemblies is an expression of this long struggle to establish a new collective shih, because it puts flesh on the idea that fundamental change lies only in our own hands.
The Peoples’ Assemblies
The Revolution may have been affected first in the hearts and minds of the People, but it took shape in our Constitutional Conventions, where the People learned how to hold and wield power for themselves. – John Adams, 1791
The Commons of England assembled in Parliament declare that the people under God are the origin of all just power, and have the supreme authority of the nation. Whatsoever is enacted and declared law by the Commons alone has the force of law, and all the people are included thereby, with or without the consent of the king. – An Act to Establish the High Court of Justice, House of Commons, London, January 4, 1649
Under this Proclamation, all lawful authority now resides in the People gathered in an elected Congress and other governmental bodies established by the People under Common Law. – A Public Proclamation abolishing Crown Authority in Canada, January 15, 2015
Our course of action is clear if the words above become part of our very thought and fiber, and gather those of us so united by this vision into permanent legislative Assemblies where we covenant to establish a new form of law and government. Such an action, replicated in many communities across Kanata and the world, will constitute the real emergence of our Republic as it sets down its roots among the people. And then the real battle will begin.
Let us be very clear that by creating such a new authority alongside the old one – by drawing the shih of the old regime into our own sphere – we are entering into a state of civil war, both politically and spiritually. We are drawing a line and separating ourselves unalterably from the past by actively disestablishing the thing called Canada and crown law. The firmer our resolve and the more people we draw into our new Republic, the more peaceful will be this transition.
We can only undertake this monumental step collectively, through a new legal and political framework embodied in the Peoples’ Assemblies; for as legislative bodies, it is the Assemblies that can lawfully establish the Republican common law courts and create the laws that are the skeleton of our new society.
The People are the source of all law, government and sovereign authority. This foundational Republican principle means that any group of people who covenant together under an Oath can formulate, debate and pass laws which are binding on themselves and are enforceable, and subject to no other authority except that to which they agree. The Peoples’ Assemblies, once lawfully convened, are therefore wholly legitimate legislatures that are part of a new Republic. And one of the essential tasks of the Assemblies is to not only establish such a new local jurisdiction and shih, but to elect delegates to a national Congress of the Republic.
People, especially Canadians, have to relearn freedom by beginning to actually practice it, and reclaiming their own shih autonomy. The Assemblies provide a sure way for them to do so, as matters of community concern are discussed and resolved directly by the People in what are practical schools in self-government. When people feel the power of taking all matters into their own hands, and passing and enforcing laws in their own name, the Republic will become real as the old regime crumbles.
We began by observing how the present global tyranny is an energy sucking parasite whose ultimate consequence will be the eradication of life as we know it on mother earth. Our purpose, of shattering that entity and restoring natural law and life to our world, cannot be achieved without recognizing and winning back the essential energy that is drained from us through our participation in this global machinery of death. Our every thought and action must therefore be geared towards regaining this shih energy by establishing new courts, assemblies and communities utterly separate from the old institutions, to allow people to leave them once and for all.
Those of you readers who will be “more than hearers of the word, but doers as well”, are like a sharp point of a spear constantly poised for battle. You will create the first wedge through which many others will follow, provided that you remain sharp, clear and consistent. Because you will form the blueprint of a new society, what you do today and tomorrow is of sacred importance for the future of our people. If you waver or backslide, there will be no such future.
“For you have been set apart to bind the kings of the earth, and bring to judgement the nobles, and to bring to nothing their pride and power. This is the task given to the righteous remnant, so that all may know the truth and stand within the justice of God” – Psalm 149, and cited at the trial of King Charles by the High Court of Justice of the People in Parliament, January 1649

A Global Media Advisory : Breaking News – May 22, 2015
Police will be asked to enforce arrest warrant against Jorge Bergoglio
New York City:
A Coalition to Stop Vatican Crimes is forming to oppose the visit of Pope Francis to America this September.
The Coalition will seek to prevent the admission of the Pope, Jorge Bergoglio, on to American soil because of his complicity in crimes against humanity and human rights violations in Argentina. Police in New York City and Washington will be asked by the Coalition to enforce a standing citizen’s arrest warrant issued against Bergoglio in 2013 by a common law court in Brussels.
The Coalition includes human rights groups, victims of catholic church crimes, and First Amendment Rights activists across America.
“We’re horrified that the United States Congress has invited a convicted felon and the head of a child trafficking syndicate to speak to it” said Nick O’Brien, an organizer with the Coalition. .
“Besides, has the Obama administration forgotten that under the first amendment, Congress is prohibited from showing favouritism to any religious denomination – let alone the most violent religion in human history?”
Pope Francis is scheduled to speak at the United Nations, and then to a joint session of the United States Congress on September 24.
The Coalition will seek both legal avenues and political lobbying to stop the Pope’s visit, along with direct non-violent action at the United Nations and in Washington DC during the papal visits there.
Coalition organizers are mounting a broad public education campaign prior to its fall actions.
To join or assist the Coalition, contact it through its affiliate and funding body, The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS), at firstname.lastname@example.org .

This is a brief update from Kevin Annett on what he has been up to and what are in his future plans regarding the Republic of Kanata. We discussed why he has taken a break from posting his own recordings and some general updates on the plight of the dark.
The views and opinions expressed herein are those of person(s) interviewed and do not necessarily reflect those of Alexandra Meadors and Galactic Connection. Posted February 11, 2015.
Ten Basic Questions and Answers
What is the Republic of Kanata?
A sovereign nation of many nations that have broken free from the British monarchy and its tyrannical system of “crown law”.
Kanata is convened under a public Proclamation of January 15, 2015 that establishes it as a constitutional republic under the common law. The Republic has over 1,000 founding signatories but reflects the wishes of nearly 60% of Canadians, who when polled in 2013 favored an end to all ties with the British monarchy.
The Republic of Kanata is also the fulfillment of the aspirations of the first patriots who attempted unsuccessfully to create such a Canadian Republic in 1837. “Kanata” is an Iroquois word meaning “our communal village”.
Is the Republic of Kanata an actual lawful government?
Yes. Its founding Constitution disestablished the political authority of the British crown in Canada and replaced it with a sovereign nation consisting of free, self governing people. The legal legitimacy and jurisdiction of the Republic was created by an Act of Supremacy in its first General Congress, which established a High Court of Justice to administer the common law everywhere in the new nation. The authority of all former agents and officials of the crown was formally revoked by this Act.
3. How does the new Republic affect my life?
Freedom from Debt Slavery: You are now freed from all of your former debts, mortgages and taxes, which were declared legally null and void by the Constitution of the Republic. Any attempt by agents of the old regime of “Canada” to collect such debts or coerce you are now illegal acts, and the perpetrators can be arrested by Republican sheriffs and tried for treason by the common law courts of the new Republic. All banks, credit and money supply are now under the control of the people.
No income tax: Abolished under the new Constitution.
Prosperity: You are eligible to receive up to two hundred hectares of land formerly held by the so called “crown”, as well as a guaranteed annual income from the wealth formerly hoarded by the crown agencies and their super-rich corporate partners.
Justice: You now have direct control over the law and the courts of the land by electing their judges, juries and sheriffs.
Direct Democracy: If you are sixteen years or older, you can now vote in elections every two years to the General Congress and every year to local governing bodies. You can also now recall any elected or non elected public official, judge or sheriff who has violated their oath of office or lost the confidence of the people.
What is the common law?
The basis of all legitimate government and authority. It is inherent in all men and women and establishes them as unconditionally free, self governing and sovereign people whose life and liberty cannot be subverted by any power.
The common law is superior to and outweighs all government statutes and other legal systems such as church “canon law” and so-called “admiralty law” employed by governments to rule arbitrarily. “The common law is common sense written by God in the hearts of the people” (Justice Edward Coke, 1628)
Are common law courts legal and valid?
Yes. Their authority and legitimacy as upholders of the rights of the people is recognized by the United States Supreme Court as well as Canadian “crown” courts, which are descended from the English common law tradition. That tradition recognizes that the people themselves are the best guarantors of their own freedom; and that therefore, the law is upheld and defined by citizen juries and enforced by local county sheriffs beholden to the people and not a central government.
Who is Kevin Annett and what is his role in the Republic?
Kevin is a leader of the common law and Republic movement, and of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS). He serves as a special adviser in common law to the Republican government and works actively with many victims of crimes against humanity, in Kanata and around the world. He is also the Convener of District One (West Coast) in the Republic.
Kevin is also a Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and award winning author and human rights figure. Born and bred on the prairies and west coast, Kevin is the former United Church minister who first exposed and documented genocide by church and crown in the Indian schools. (www.hiddennolonger.com) . A biography of Kevin and more information is found at www.itccs.org and www.KevinAnnett.com .
How do I go about joining the Republic and getting involved?
The Republic of Kanata is a fact: as of January 15, 2015, you live within its common law jurisdiction anywhere on the territory of the former “Dominion of Canada”. However, you can declare your formal citizenship within the Republic by taking a Pledge to the Republican constitution and receiving official identification as a member of the Republic, including a passport and citizenship papers. You can also take an oath of office as a sheriff or other public official, and become involved in your local branch and District, by contacting email@example.com .
Do indigenous nations have to be a part of the new Republic?
No. If any genuine indigenous nation decides unanimously not to be affiliated with the Republic, they may legally secede and establish their own separate nation within the general Federation of the Republic. However, the indigenous nation may not create laws or practices that violate the Constitution and common law of the Republic. If the indigenous nation remains within the Republic, they will have guaranteed representation in a separate Chamber of Indigenous Nations within the General Congress.
Am I at risk under the new Republic?
There are risks involved in any freedom movement. But the law and the people are with us, and more police are coming over to our jurisdiction every day alongside our growing network of sworn common law sheriffs.
Your liberty and security will be guaranteed the more you make the Republic a reality by your own refusal to participate in the old system called “crown law” and “Canada”. Turn away from the old and reclaim the land, the law and the future, for all of us.

by Kevin Annett
Special Adviser to the Republic’s Provisional Council in Winnipeg
December 6, 2014
“I didn’t know we and the common law had power until that Mountie backed right off …”
This remark from a protestor at the Kinder-Morgan dispute last week in Vancouver could sum up the transformation shaking our nation and the world these days. The protestor had just handed an RCMP officer a copy of our Republic’s Stand Down Order to “crown” officials, and the officer had complied.
The protestor – a young woman in her twenties – signed up with the Republic the next day.
Hundreds of others like her, and you the reader, have taken the same step in the past few months, and are poised to help inaugurate the Republic of Kanata in the new year of 2015. And we will do so not simply through a Proclamation of Independence but by direct actions to take back our land and liberties, and restore the Common Law as our governing authority.
As sovereign men and women, you have the God given power and the right and obligation to do so. And here is how we will accomplish it:
The Proclamation. After four drafts were debated and amended, our Proclamation of Independence received final assent by our Provisional Council last Monday. This Proclamation declaring our sovereignty will be read publicly and enacted at a foundational ceremony on the morning of January 1, 2015, at five locations across Kanata. On that day, the Republic of Kanata will come into lawful existence. The first Congress of the new Republic will be convened during 2015.
The Constitution and High Court of the Republic. The Proclamation will authorize a new Constitution for the Republic, which will provide for common law courts of justice, including a High Court of the Republic under whose authority local courts will operate. This step will lawfully disestablish the laws and governance of “Canada” and the crown, and legitimate our laws and actions as a Republic.
Reclaiming the Nation. On January 15, a fortnight after Independence Day, our Republic will commence direct and ongoing actions to actively reclaim the land and the law by land seizures, nullification of debts and taxes, and take over of public facilities. Not only the RCMP and police, but all “crown” officials across Kanata, will have their power revoked, and all bills, taxes, statutes and laws of the former corporate entity called Canada will be made null and void. In their place, we will actively establish new laws and institutions designed to return wealth and power to all the people.
You, the nearly one thousand members of the Republic, are the seed from which this new nation will emerge. Each of you must recruit, educate and mobilize other men and women over the next few months as part of this campaign and Proclamation of Liberty.
As part of this notification, you have received the names and contact information of the other Republic volunteers in your community. You are to gather together immediately and do the following:
Establish a local branch of our Republic and elect three officers: A Branch Convener, an Education and Membership Coordinator, and a Direct Action Coordinator. Hold one public action and one branch meeting every week.
Distribute our Proclamation and literature to the public and involve them in our direct actions, including the establishment of local Republican Common Law Courts.
Take the Pledge of Allegiance to the Republic, sign up others to do the same, and pay dues to the local branch of no less than five percent of your monthly income. (All of your funds will remain in your local branch to supply your actions).
More advice and resources will be provided to you through our official publications and website (www.republicofkanata.com) . The head Convener for your District will be in touch with all of you directly.
If you are reading this, you are the Republic. From you and you alone will issue the future: a reclaimed land, wiped clean of the corruption and crimes of the present, and governed by the Natural Law of equality, peace and liberty. From you alone will come the ideas and actions that will ensure that our children are raised as healthy and free people, as true sovereigns in their own land of Kanata: a federation of free and equal nations.
“Though we may fail today, our principles will triumph tomorrow, taking seed and arising anew in the lives of new generations of free people … I have hope in our future.”
May these words of Canada’s first Republican leader, William Lyon McKenzie, come true and guide us in the days ahead, and give us the courage to triumph through the grace of God.
In the service of the Republic and the People,
The Republic of Kanata – Live Free or Die

1. Secretary’s Pre-Convention Report and Regional Updates
2. The Draft Proclamation of Independence and Constitution
3. Local Work: Campaigns, Issues and the Training of Local Leaders
by Colin Sullivan
Secretary to the Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata, Winnipeg
Hundreds of new volunteers have flocked to our ranks in the past several months, and inspired by our vision of a liberated and sovereign nation, are being organized and trained within the six Districts of the Republic of Kanata. And many of these men and women have already taken the Oath of Allegiance to the Republic, and are actively breaking free from the criminal “authority” of the crown.
We expect to see many of you as delegates and observers at our first Constitutional Convention in Winnipeg, between January 1-4, 2015. Not only will that event see a Proclamation of Independence declared and a Constitution for Kanata adopted, but the work of our regional groups will be shared and built upon, to unite more of our people under our banner.
The motto of our movement is “Live Free or Die”, for as freeborn and sovereign men and women we know that there can be no life without liberty: and liberty demands that we reclaim our birthright freedoms by nullifying all that suppresses them. Our movement is all about reclaiming what is naturally ours, starting with our lives, our laws, and our land.
We have already begun such active reclamation, by establishing local common law courts, revoking the authority of so-called “crown” agents like the RCMP, and engaging in land seizures and citizen arrests against those who are a threat to our children and our communities. Our aim is to unite and broaden these actions in the years to come: not as random individuals but under the lawful political authority of our new nation: the Republic of Kanata.
In preparation for our Convention that will create that Republic, we have organized five Policy Commissions to advise those who are drafting the Constitution. These Commissions are:
1. The Law and Government, including common law courts
2. Environment, Agriculture and Land Reclamation
3. Indigenous Nations
4. The Economy and Social Welfare
5. Foreign Relations and National Security
The documents and policy papers of these Commissions will be presented at the Convention and revised and adopted as part of our Constitution. If you wish to assist or contribute to any of these discussions, please contact the appropriate Commission c/o firstname.lastname@example.org .
Any member of our movement can attend the Convention. Every local branch of three or more members may elect one delegate, or two or more delegates for every multiple of ten members. Please elect your delegates no later than December 1, 2014, and send their names and contact information to our central office.
We recognize that Kanata’s vast distances and the cost of travel may prevent many of you from attending the Convention. We are therefore linking all the regional groups by video feed and skype during the Convention; and our organizers will also be holding regional gatherings to coincide with the Convention in order to maximize everyone’s involvement.
Also, please note that our work is now organized into six Districts, each under the supervision of a Regional Convenor:
District One: West Coast
District Two: The Prairies
District Three: Ontario
District Four: Quebec
District Five: East Coast
District Six: The North (Yukon-Nunavut)
Roughly half of our members are based in the west, in Districts One and Two, with most of the rest residing in District Three. The six Regional Convenors are all voting members of our Provisional Council, which serves as the interim national body prior to the election of our first Congress.
Please feel free to contact our national office (email@example.com) to receive the name of the Regional Convenor in your District, although be assured that the Convenor will be in touch with you to notify you of upcoming local meetings and actions.
Finally, because educating the public about the vision and goals of our movement is so vital right now, general leaflets, videos and other educational material will be provided to you all soon, for public dissemination.
Build the Republic now! Take the Oath and reclaim the Nation!
The Draft Proclamation of Independence, Oath of Allegiance, and the Constitution of the Republic of Kanata
These crucial documents embody the vision and soul of our new nation, and so the documents have been discussed and amended many times by dozens of our members since their initial issuing six months ago. The final drafts that will be debated and adopted in Convention are attached to this email, and are posted now at www.republicofkanata.com , our main website.
There has been general unanimity about the wording of the Proclamation and the Oath. But one of the biggest points of contention has been with the original Constitution and its proposal to nationalize the land and restrict the size of land ownership. That point in the Constitution has now been modified. And after much debate, our proposals to establish a citizens’ militia, lower the voting age to sixteen and abolish all income tax have been reaffirmed.
Please read over the new drafts of all these documents and discuss them at your next local branch meeting. Be sure to bring your views to the Convention or local gatherings on January 1-4, 2015.
Our organizational focus until now has been to train cadres of local leaders through workshops and practical actions in their own communities. These leaders are slowly emerging now that the principles of the Republic are being clarified in the course of us taking real action to nullify “Canada” and bring Kanata into being.
Clearly, there are two big issues of most concern to our members: the sheer corruption and violence in the present judicial and political system of “Canada”, and the burden of financial debt and economic slavery afflicting more of us every day. Mortgage fraud, involving corrupt judges in the pay of banks and mortgage companies, is causing honest men and women to lose their homes and their farms. And the particular role of the “Canada Revenue Agency” (CRA) – Canada’s tax department – in defrauding and robbing Canadians is foremost in this regard.
Our western Manitoba branches near Brandon are actively taking up both of these evils by exposing the criminal methods of the CRA as well as the political persecution of common law activist Dean Clifford, who has been incarcerated without due process in a Brandon jail for almost a year.
In addition, our Calgary branch and members in Kitchener, Ontario are confronting the criminality in “crown” family courts and their active trafficking of children.
To systematically conduct these campaigns and draw more Canadians into our movement, active and functioning local branches of our movement must be established. Most of our members are still not part of such working branches.
You will soon be contacted by your Regional Convenor, who will help you establish this system of operating:
1. Local Republic branches of three or more people will be established and will meet every week, preferably on a weekend, to discuss perspectives and plan local actions.
2. Every branch member is required to do the following: a) Take an Oath of Allegiance to the Republic of Kanata, b) pay monthly membership dues, and c) work actively under the direction of at least one local committee.
3. The local branch will consist of an executive of three people: a Branch Convenor, an Education-Membership coordinator, and a Direct Action coordinator.
4. The Branch Convenor is the personal liaison with the Regional Convenor, and retains copies of all of the records, documents and resources of the branch.
5. The Education and Membership coordinator recruits new members, trains and integrates them into the movement, collects membership dues and conducts regular internal and public education programs;
6. The Direct Action coordinator initiates all the public actions of the branch, by providing enforcement, security and intelligence, and organizing protests, occupations, land reclamations and media events. The DA coordinator also establishes and maintains Common Law Courts under the jurisdiction of the new Republic.
7. Public actions involving all local members, such as protests, leafletting and recruitment rallies, should occur at least once a week, preferably on a weekend.
Our movement is presently organized into six districts with members or functioning branches in the following areas:
District One: West Coast
1. Nanaimo-Vancouver Island
2. Vancouver- Lower Mainland
4. Kamloops-Central Interior
District Two: Prairies
1. Calgary-southern Alberta
2. Edmonton-northern Alberta
3. Brandon-western Manitoba
District Three: Ontario
1. Thunder Bay
2. Sault St. Marie-Sudbury
3. North Bay
District Four: Quebec
2. Quebec city and eastern townships
District Five: Maritimes
2. New Brunswick
District Six: The North (Yukon and Nunavut)
Finally, a special Indigenous Advisory Council consisting of elders from the Mohawk-Six Nations, Miq Maq, Algonquin, Anishinabe, Cree, Metis, Nuu-chah-nulth and Squamish Nations is now working with the Provisional Council to draft our Constitution and lay the basis for a truly federated Republic of equal nations. These elders are recruiting indigenous members for the Republic, especially in Districts One and Three.
We look forward to a Convention that will issue a shot heard around the world!
Editor’s Note: Another Bulletin will be issued in December, prior to the January 1-4 Convention.
