Pre-Convention Report
by Colin Sullivan
Secretary to the Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata, Winnipeg

Fellow patriots,

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 republicofkanata@gmail.com .

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 (republicofkanata@gmail.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.

  • Local Work: Campaigns, Issues and the Training of Local Leaders
    by Kevin D. Annett
    Special Adviser to the Provisional Council

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
3. Abbotsford-Hope
4. Kamloops-Central Interior

District Two: Prairies
1. Calgary-southern Alberta
2. Edmonton-northern Alberta
3. Brandon-western Manitoba
4. Winnipeg

District Three: Ontario
1. Thunder Bay
2. Sault St. Marie-Sudbury
3. North Bay
4. Toronto
5. Kitchener
6. Hamilton
7. London
8. Picton-Kingston
9. Ottawa
10. Cornwall

District Four: Quebec
1. Montreal
2. Quebec city and eastern townships

District Five: Maritimes
1. Halifax
2. New Brunswick
3. PEI
4. Newfoundland

District Six: The North (Yukon and Nunavut)
1. Yellowknife

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!

ITCCS Breaking News: October 25, 2014 – Police State Powers coming to Canada

Canada: “Track B” secret government, police powers established by Order in Council – “Our equivalent of NDAA” in effect November 1 – ITCCS to respond

Ottawa:

In the wake of the staged shooting of a Canadian soldier in Canada’s capital this week, a secret system of government armed with sweeping police powers will soon be inaugurated by a special Order in Council.

A source in Ottawa claims the new system mirrors the American “Homeland Security” regime, and stands outside the laws and Parliament of Canada. The Order establishing the new regime is codenamed “Track B’, and is closed to public scrutiny and Parliamentary or judicial review.

“This is like the free trade agreement: there’ll be the official version for the masses and the real arrangement, cloaked and operational. Not even (Prime Minister) Harper’s cabinet knows most of the facts” stated the source today.

Under “Track B”, according to the source, police and special para-military units will have unlimited powers of arrest and detention, utilizing secret prisons and open ended warrants to incarcerate anyone indefinitely without due process or Habeas Corpus.

“November 1 is the official start date, but things are moving already” said the source.

In response to the Track B disclosure, ITCCS Central will be issuing a special communique and directive to its members this Monday, October 27, along with a breaking interview with its North American Field Secretary Kevin Annett.

The special communique and interview will be posted at www.itccs.org and throughout the ITCCS global network.

European Police join ITCCS take down of Ndrangheta, Vatican, Cargill and other child killers

A Breaking Interview with Kevin Annett, September 27, 2014:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ_JChovG9M&feature=youtu.be

VANCOUVER, BC – In an Exopolitics TV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett, Field Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) discussed European police raids this week that freed thirty children from traffickers. The raids were based in part on evidence provided by ITCCS and its recent common law court cases.

Police in at least three European nations are now working directly with the ITCCS to track worldwide child trafficking networks that feed children directly into Ninth circle Satanic sacrifices by Popes and Vatican officials, the British, Dutch and Belgian monarchies and high government officials, and Satanic corporations such as Cargill Corporation, and to make further arrests.

Kevin Annett also gave updates about the Vatican’s protection of Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, a Ninth Circle cult participant who has been accused of sexually abusing boys he met on the street while serving in the Dominican Republic.

Republic of Kanata and Republic of England

Kevin Annett announced new dates for the the Republic of Kanata convention scheduled for January 1-4, 2015 in Winnipeg, and the Republic of England Convention, scheduled for May 1, 2015 in London.

Exclusive interview with Kevin Annett: Vatican floats rumours of Pope’s “ill health” to distract from new evidence indicting Jorge Bergoglio for child murder – Common Law Sheriffs to take action

Kevin Annett interview: Vatican circulates rumours concerning Pope Bergoglio’s bad health to avoid Satanic 9th circle murder evidence – May 23, 2014


VANCOUVER, BC – In a wide-ranging Exopolitics TV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett, Field Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, revealed Vatican infighting and rumours of Pope Francis “bad health” as divserions from the evidence of Satanic child sacrifice in the Papal 9th Circle rituals. Evidence of these rituals has been recorded from eye witnesses at the Brussels trial of Pope Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Superior General of the Jesuits and others for child trafficking and genocide. The trial, now in its 3rd session, is expected to continue for as long as a year.

In the course of the interview, Kevin Annett discussed the support of Belgian MP Laurent Louis for the ITCCS.ORG Brussels trial. He also discussed the ongoing Common Law Sheriff and Enforcement Officer training for ITCCS and the International Common Law Court of Justice and its expansion in the U.S. In Canada, Common Law Sheriffs are being trained and deployed to prevent a reported 9th Circle Child Sacrifice Ritual planned at the Montreal Cathedral Marie Reine du Monde for August 15, 2014.

Transcript of witness evidence
In his interview, Kevin Annett read from a sample transcript of evidence given in the Brussels trial that connects child sacrifice, genocide and torture committed during the 1950s in programs involving former German SS officers stationed at the Lincoln Park Air Force base in Calgary, Alberta, and elsewhere in Canada. The SS officers, who had been supplied with new identities by the Canadian Armed forces, were connected to the Knights of Darkness, a Satanic child sacrifice organization of which Pope Joseph Ratzinger was a member. Both the Government of Canada and Pope Ratzinger were defendants and found guilty of child genocide in a previous trial before the International Common Law Court of Justice.

London, UK & Rome: Enforcement Action June 29 – July 2, 2014
Kevin Annett reiterated that during June 29 – July 2, 2014 a Common Law Court Enforcement Action will take place in London UK and Rome Italy.

Kevin Annett will be leading an ITCCS enforcement delegation accompanied by Common Law Sheriffs and supporters to the UK and to Rome to enforce Court arrest warrants against Elizabeth Windsor and against Pope Joseph Ratzinger and others already convicted by the Common Law Court of Justice for crimes against humanity. These enforcement actions will be broadcast via live media.

Individuals who live in the UK and in Rome and who want to support the Common Law Court of Justice actions by accompanying the ITCCS delegation and videoing the proceedings on their smartphones, etc. are encouraged to contact Kevin Annett at hiddenfromhistory1@gmail.com or The Central Office of The International Common Law Court of Justice, Brussels itccscentral@gmail.com

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

Brian Thorpe, Art Anderson, Foster Freed, Bill Howie and Phil Spencer, officers of the United Church of Canada

John Cashore, former minister of the government of British Columbia

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.

Summoning the Just: Global actions to stop Crimes by Church and State will commence in one month

Posted on August 16, 2012 by itccs

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.

ITCCS Communique 15 August 2012

Catholic Prelate William Lynn is found guilty: But what about those that ordered him? Placing the Pope and Crimen Sollicitationis on Trial

Posted on June 26, 2012 by itccs

lyn jail

How the mighty are falling.

Watching William Lynn go to jail is immensely pleasurable, partly because it reminds me of the rapid collapse of the Richard Nixon administration years ago, as the conviction of successive Presidential flunkies eventually led prosecutors right to the door of the Executive office.

Being students of history, the Vatican mob must be nervous today, regardless of their success in nullifying their main concern in the Lynn case, which was the charge of criminal conspiracy against him. For such a conviction would have connected Lynn’s protection of child rapists in his charge to the Vatican policy that shielded him for so long – namely, Crimen Solicitationas – and to Pope Benedict himself, who has personally authorized the policy.

Crimen Solicitationas is the law in the Roman Catholic church that orders every priest and Bishop in the world to protect child raping clergy or face excommunication. It is a clear command to obstruct justice and conspire in an enormous, global assault on the innocent, and it implicates the Catholic hierarchy as a whole in a crime against humanity.

The historic conviction of William Lynn, as the first member of the Roman Catholic hierarchy in America to go to jail for aiding and abetting clerical child rapists, is no small feat, considering the political weight of the papacy and its strange ally in the Obama administration, which did its utmost to derail the Lynn case. But where Lynn’s conviction will lead is uncertain, since the entire matter of whom and what allowed him to help terrorize and destroy generations of children was ignored by the court’s decision.

This fact is odd, considering how early on in the court proceedings it was established that Lynn was not acting alone, but clearly was following the instructions of Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, the boss of Lynn’s Philadelphia Diocese who Lynn served as an aide. Last January, Bevilacqua suffered a convenient and sudden death the day after he was declared fit to stand trial in the Lynn case.

Vatican machinations aside, if William Lynn’s conviction is to have the long-term significance that many survivors of church terror hope it will, it must be followed by a legal assault on the Vatican and its policy of Crimen, which is the executive order that authorized William Lynn to do what he did in the first place. Any failure to do so will be analogous to convicting an Auschwitz S.S. guard for mass murder while ignoring the Wannsee Protocol, or the orders from his superiors in Berlin.

That, of course, is easier said than done. Not only is the Catholic Church a law unto itself, but so are its many orders and branches: like the elite Knights of Malta, for example, which issues its own passports, has its own courts and judiciary, enjoys observer status at the United Nations and has diplomatic relations with over a hundred nations. And the Vatican itself has simply snubbed its nose at numerous attempts by German and American lawyers to serve a summons on the Pope, who claims “diplomatic immunity” from prosecution as a so-called “head of state”.

Joseph Ratzinger must never have heard of, or at least tries to forget, the Nuremburg Trials, which isn’t surprising, considering his Hitler Youth past. But the precedent is there, nevertheless: heads of state can and are tried under international law for crimes against humanity, which child rape and trafficking now constitute under the Rome Convention of the International Criminal Court.

Admittedly, the old guy is a tottering figurehead, and according to some Vatican insiders, Ratzinger was deliberately elected as Pope by the College of Cardinals to take the heat that was brewing because of the blatancy of his personal involvement in concealing child rapists in the church – including his own brother in Munich. This analysis seems to be borne out by the recent “Vatileaks” scandal that shows that at least some Cardinals in the Secretary of State’s office are releasing evidence to the press of criminal corruption by Ratzinger in his awarding Vatican contracts to friends and insiders.

Clearly, somebody in the upper church echelons wants the old Nazi out.

In the light of this growing civil war in Rome, William Lynn’s conviction could be the spark that ignites the downfall of at least one Pope and that part of the hierarchy that stands by him. And it’s for that reason that this particular spark is simultaneously being fanned and doused by different elements in the catholic church.

Those fanning the case – call them the “liberal” faction in the Curia and a host of non-Italian Bishops and Cardinals – clearly want reforms and window cleaning in the Vatican. They are in fact the same force that has been funding and promoting various front groups of church abuse survivors, most notoriously the so-called “SNAP” movement (Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests) based in the USA, and much-quoted in the world media as “the official survivors’ organization”.

SNAP goes out of its way to invite Catholic clergy to speak at its posh, heavily-funded events, and steers its members away from any protests at churches. Intrepid former SNAP members have recently traced the group’s origin to a Catholic group called the Eighth Day Center for Justice in the Chicago Diocese, set up in 1993. The practice of stage managing dissent and creating a controlled opposition is not a new tactic for institutions under fire, but it’s one desperately needed these days by Roman Catholicism as its victims and opponents are closing ranks from all sides.

But ultimately money talks, especially in the church, and the weight of the financial czars in the Vatican Bank still lean towards the papal status quo. The expulsion of reformer Gotti Tedeschi as head of the Bank is a sign of the Italian mob’s vote of confidence in Ratzinger – for now. But the Lynn case has all of them worrying, and the Italian old guard is already moving to have the Lynn indictment quashed through their considerable influence in the American judiciary and Obama administration.

Nevertheless, the jailing of William Lynn is a huge green light for lawyers everywhere who seek to prosecute the Vatican as a whole for crimes against children and liberty. And yet this is a battle that will be ultimately staged and won in the public arena, not the legal one, through direct, sustained political action against the catholic church and its finances.

Our network has already thrown down the gauntlet to Rome by planning church occupations and citizen’s arrests against child raping priests and their protectors beginning on September 15. If this type of direct action can be multiplied in many communities, and join with the international legal campaign to bring the papacy to trial, our power will be immeasurable.

The crime known as Crimen Solicitationas that allowed William Lynn and so many others to terrorize our children needs to be torn up at its roots, by confronting the loyalty given it by Catholic clergy around the world. We have given them all until September 15 to take a public oath to defy Crimen and protect children, or be branded as public enemies subject to arrest and public banishment. (see www.itccs.org)

This is not an especially radical thing to ask a priest to do. The French revolution imposed a similar civil oath on catholic clergy in 1791, after nationalizing the property of the church in France. And now, as then, it is only fundamental action to dismantle the source of religious tyranny and terrorism that will put an end to it.

The simple verdict condemning William Lynn was a shot heard around the world, and aimed at the heart of the oldest, corporate conspiracy in human history. The crumbling of Roman Catholicism can only be good news for humankind. In the recent words to the author of a senior Vatican official who, understandably, prefers anonymity,

“Who knows? This scandal might even make Christians of us!”
