An Open Letter to APTN
Dear APTN, and assorted minions,
I was going to write to your lawyers about all this, but you know how humorless those guys tend to be. And this involves what’s ultimately a laughing matter, despite the seriousness of the garbage you’ve been up to.
This week, as part of a grossly misrepresentative smear piece you’ve been running on me, you’ve been broadcasting my image on your network after I expressly denied you permission to do so. Somewhere, I read, that’s against the law.
You’ve also publicly lied about the work I’ve been doing at the Brantford Indian residential school in our search for the mass graves of the children who died there.
Let me say, first off, that I’ve tried unsuccessfully for several years to interest your station in our campaign to open these graves and bring the murdered children home for a proper burial. Ever since the farcical “apology” for genocide issued in June 2008 by your paymaster, the Prime Minister of Canada, you’ve ignored the whole issue, including the list of 28 mass graves near former Indian residential schools that I sent to your head office in April, 2010.
Even last year, when ten Mohawk elders gave me written authorization to commence surveys and digs at the Brantford “Mush hole” residential school, and when we actually uncovered evidence of buried children there, APTN refused to broadcast this historic news.
So it’s quite odd, and humorous, that APTN is now trumpeting itself as providing the “real story” about the missing residential school children in Canada. Exactly how you’d know anything about the issue is beyond me, considering how steadfastly you’ve shunned it.
But the heat is on you now, obviously, with the guilty government and churches’ need for a new big spin on the matter of mass murder of Indian children. Or is it coincidental that you guys are suddenly interested in missing Indian kids, now that the whitewash those killers call “canada’s truth and reconciliation commission” is about to issue its final report? A report, incidentally, that’s a $68 million version of the Warren Commission Report, except that it does the Americans one better: there wasn’t even a lone gunman responsible for the crime up here, apparently, since nobody was responsible for the deaths of those 50,000 Indian kids, considering that nobody is standing trial for the death of even one child – especially not the churches responsible.
So I understand. But in your zeal to suddenly look credible on the issue and help discredit me and the only independent inquiry into the mass graves, your bits of journalistic integrity have vanished quicker than death records into a church shredding machine. Because you’re openly lying about me, on the public airwaves.
One of your recent inflammatory pieces, for instance, claimed that our survey team at the Brantford Mush hole school relied only on “psychics” to identify the spot where childen were buried.
I guess you guys don’t watch youtube. In early October, 2011, images of our scanning the grounds of the school with a Ground Penetrating Radar machine were posted all over the internet. I can send you the link, again, if you like.
You also claim that our digging up a small two foot deep, five foot square patch of earth near the school has “irretrievably damaged the site”, which is an odd thing to say, considering that the site encompassses more than three hundred acres.
What you convientally don’t mention on the air is the significance of the evidence we dug up at the Mush Hole: namely, buttons from children’s uniforms at the school, entangled in tree roots. Eyewitnesses say that when kids were buried on the grounds, trees were always planted on top of the remains.
Newsworthy? Apparently not to APTN. What you do consider important is to spread lots of gossip, innuendo and unsubstantiated nastiness about me personally, and pass that off as objective coverage of murdered children.
Which brings us to those bones we uncovered.
What you claim is that I, a white guy, went it like a gangbuster at the Mush Hole and dug up some animal bones and then passed them off as human, and thereby so angered the Mohawk elders they asked me to leave. That’s also what the government and church spin doctors are saying about me, but I guess that’s another coincidence, eh?
What actually happened is that with full permission, I conducted two small digs in the presence of authorizing Mohawk elders and uncovered many bones close to and mixed with the school uniform buttons I mentioned. That same week, an archeaologist named Kris Nahrgang and an Ontario fire marshal called Greg Olson sat with me and the Mohawk elders and studied the bones we unearthed. After a half hour of examining one small bone, Olson said, with Nahrgang agreeing,
“I’m 90 pecent cetain this is human, probably a small child’s knee socket. But we’ll need a forensic examination to be sure.”
On the basis of his remark, I subsequently showed that bone on a youtube broadcast and a Toronto TV program, and repeated Olson’s words: that it was “probably human”, but we weren’t sure yet.
The bones were then sent off to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington for analysis. Their chief forensic specialist took three weeks to examine them and then told me on the phone,
“They could be human but I think they’re animal. I’ll need more samples to be sure.”
Frankly, his ambiguous comments seemed strange to me, and I believe he was influenced to say what he did and to be vague. It wouldn’t be the first time a government scientist has responded thus when faced with the remains of possibly murdered Indian kids.
Meanwhile, back in Brantford, a woman name Jan Longboat, who admitted she receives government money, had been smearing me in the comunity from top to bottom and paying a man named Frank Miller to join the “Trash Kevin Annett” campaign. The two of them created enough confusion to put any further digs on hold – and again, I guess coincidentally eh? – Miller is the first and primary Mohawk that APTN went to for “the real story” about Kevin Annett and the Mush hole dig.
Of course, I’m not the issue at all: all those dead Mokawk children are, as is those who put them under the ground – namely, the Anglican Church of Canada and the feds. And Anglican Bishop Bob Bennett in London, Ontario has been sitting on hard evidence – including an 1870 Crown document outlining a plan to wipe out the Mohawks – that reveals that the church knew about the deaths at the Mush Hole and did nothing.
Funny that none of that made it into your programs, especially since, once again, I shared all of that information with you as I learned it from former Anglican researcher Leona Moses, who asked me to make it public. You are still getting my updates, aren’t you?
I know the pressure you guys are under. Last January, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Cantebury, told top Canadian Anglican Fred Hiltz that not one church record about the Brantford school is to be made public. Back in law school, they called that obstructing justice. But I guess he can do that sort of thing, being an Archbishop.
The Archbishop didn’t call you guys too, did he?
Well, don’t worry. All of this stuff is being documented and will be broadcast soon all over the world, through the online common law court I am involved in that is publishing hundreds of exhibits detailing the crime and coverup of genocide in Canada … something else you’ve never mentioned over your airwaves.
So get the story straight, guys, and stop lying about me and what’s going on. But of course, engaging in such journalistic integrity, so unusual in Canada, will cost you your jobs, your reputations, and perhaps a lot more. That’s the price of truth.
Kevin D. Annett
ps: I’ve attached pictures showing that at the Brantford site, not only were we employing a GPR machine and technician – that’s Clynt employed by the Six Nations Tribal Council on the left, teaching ITCCS worker Lori O’Rorke how to run it – but your informant Frank Miller is filming everything, on the right. So how can he now claim we were only using a psychic?
Also, the pictures include three authorizing Mohawk elders – Bill Squire, Cheryl Squire, and Yvonne Hill – involved in the dig, and Cheryl Squire commencing the dig.
Convening of International Common Law Court of Justice
Hello. My name is Kevin Annett – Eagle Strong Voice, and I am the chief consultant for the Prosecutor’s Office of the International Common Law Court of Justice.
Today is Monday, October 15, 2012, and marks the formal online convening of the five sworn judges of our Court, from Canada, the United States and Belgium. They are joined by fifty eight sworn citizen jurors from Canada, the USA, Ireland, England, Holland, Italy and Australia, who have been prepared to receive the evidence in the first of five cases in the Docket of our Court.
This first case involves the evidence that the government and churches of Canada entered into a criminal conspiracy to commit genocide and other crimes against indigenous people and their children for over a century; and that such crimes were committed by the defendants and their organizations, and continue today.
Thirty two officers of church and state have been issued Public Summonses by our Court to reply to these charges, and only one of them, John Milloy, has replied. Neither Mr. Milloy nor any of the other summoned parties have contested or denied the charges made against them, including Pope Benedict, Queen Elizabeth and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Our Prosecutor’s Office has therefore filed a motion with the Court that a guilty plea be entered on behalf of all of the defendants named in our Summonses, in their absence, since they do not contest or deny the charges made against them.
The aim of our Prosecutor`s Office is to achieve a final verdict of guilty against all of the persons and organizations named in our Public Summons of September 21, which is posted online.
For the record, our Office will demand the strongest sentences against these parties, including extensive prison terms, the expropriation of their property and assets, the citizens’ arrest of their accomplices and others engaged in these ongoing crimes, the occupation and seizure of catholic and protestant church property, and the legal and practical dis-establishment of the criminal church bodies named in the main indictment. These sentences will be duly enforced by our own sworn Common Law Peace Officers and regular law enforcement officers deputized by our Court.
The defendants will not buy their way out of responsibility for the deaths of children and these other crimes against humanity, as they have up until now. Nor will they and their organizations be allowed to terrorize the innocent any longer.
The volume of evidence gathered against the defendants is considerable, comprising nearly two hundred exhibits that will be presented as primary evidence by our Prosecutor`s office in the course of our argument. For this reason, it is necessary to present the evidence as a single package, and not in piecemeal form, so that the citizen jurors and the public can receive the most accurate and truthful presentation of the evidence of genocide in Canada.
Accordingly, and for the sake of the judicial and historical record, it has been decided by the Court’s Panel of Judges to allow our Prosecutor’s Office until Thursday, November 1 at 5 pm Greenwich Mean Time to compile all of our exhibits and evidence in a condensed, viewable form, and to commence their complete presentation to the Court at that day and hour. This presentation will be posted that same day on You Tube, google video and this site.
I am therefore authorized to announce that the Prosecutor’s Office of the International Common Law Court of Justice will commence our opening argument and presentation in the first case in our Docket, The People and Kevin Annett v. the officers of the government of Canada, the crown of England, the Vatican and other church corporations, on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 9 am pacific time, 12 noon central, and 5 pm Greenwich mean time.
The duly sworn citizen jurors will hold themselves ready to convene on that day and hour. And you, the public, are invited to join us that day and view the online evidence in this historic court of justice.

(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!
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.
Filed and Entered as a Sworn Document by Kevin D. Annett – Eagle Strong Voice in the Docket of the International Human Rights Court of Justice, Brussels
Posted on August 10, 2012 by itccs
The first eyewitness to go public with his discovery of a dead adolescent at a United Church Indian residential school died yesterday in Vancouver.
Harry Wilson, 59, sustained massive head and brain injuries earlier this year from an undisclosed cause. He lapsed into a coma and never recovered.
In the spring of 1997, Wilson first spoke about tortures he endured as a child at the Alberni Indian residential school at a public forum organized by Kevin Annett and west coast elders. He was subsequently threatened and assaulted by state-funded tribal council officials in Port Alberni for speaking in the media of his discovery of a dead native student at the United Church’s Alberni residential school in the summer of 1967.
Nevertheless, Wilson went on to be a star witness at the historic IHRAAM Tribunal of June 1998, and was featured in the award-winning documentary film on Genocide in Canada, Unrepentant.
Harry Wilson had been homeless for many years. In March of 2011, he told Kevin Annett that two men had beaten him severely and threatened to kill him if he spoke at investigative forums of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State.
The Vancouver Coroner’s Office refuses to comment on Wilson’s death or the head and brain injuries sustained by him.
ITCCS International Communique 9 August 2012
A Personal Remembrance
by Kevin D. Annett
I knew Harry for over fifteen years, and rarely have I encountered such heroism and suffering in one man.
Kidnapped by Mounties at age six, sodomized daily by United Church clergy and staff, starved, beaten and drugged, Harry had every reason to die or kill himself at a young age. But there was an iron quality about him that shone through the struggling homeless guy that the world saw. It was such character that caused him to keep speaking out, even after ever increasing beatings and threats.
“I wasn’t in the protected group at Alberni (residential school)” Harry told me when we first met, at a public meeting in downtown Vancouver.
“So I got it all the time. I had to hide out at night or they’d get me so I broke out of the place once and I found the body of a dead girl right behind Caldwell Hall. She was from up north. She was about sixteen, all naked and covered in blood. I ran and told Andrews (school Principal). But then he shipped me out to Nanaimo hospital and they put me in a padded cell, stuck needles in me so I wouldn’t talk. They kept me there for months, giving me shocks, doing experiments on me”
On February 9, 1998, Harry was about to tell this story to a gathering in Port Alberni when he was approached by two officials of the local state-owned Nuu-Chah-Nulth Tribal Council: Charlie Thompson and Ron Hamilton. Both men threatened to kill Harry if he spoke.
In an affidavit Harry swore that same month he states,
“First Ron Hamilton says to me, ‘You’re going to be real sorry if you talk about that dead girl’. … Charlie Thompson came to me after and said, ‘Harry, you’ve got half a brain and nobody’ll miss you if you’re found floating face down in the water.’ ”
Both Hamilton and Thompson were “enforcers” for the white administration while students at the Alberni residential school during the 1960′s.
The nightmare never stopped for Harry after that. He was threatened, pushed around and isolated in his community by all the classic black ops methods. Harry’s own lawyer, David Patterson, refused to include Harry’s statement about the dead girl in his legal statement of claim. When I asked him why, Patterson said,
“I’m an officer of the court and there are certain issues I’m not allowed to raise, like that dead girl”.
Censored and ridiculed, Harry was given $150,000 hush money in a deal that he wasn’t allowed to discuss. Within two months, all the money was gone: blown through by family, his lawyer and all sorts of “new friends” that vanished once the money went. Barely a year after his settlement, Harry was homeless again, living off what he could pawn or recycle from garbage bins along east hastings street.
That’s where I always found him. His eyes would light up and he’d chortle happily whenever I appeared, and we’d embrace and talk about his life over coffee at the Ovaltine. It was always the same story of unrelieved misery, and every time I saw him, Harry looked older, more beaten, and was more saturated with booze. But he never lost his humor, or his honesty and courage.
Just before I was expelled from vancouver Co-op radio in the summer of 2010, Harry came on my program for a final time to recount the Alberni school nightmare, and more recent criminality by the same United Church of Canada.
“They got two rapists working at the First United overnight drop in” Harry described on the air , a few months before the story broke in the corporate media.
“Nobody’s safe at the drop in at nights, especially women. The church hired those fuckers knowing they were rapers. Just like at their rez school.”
I tried to keep Harry’s spirits up whenever we met, but he was nothing if not a realist. He knew his days were numbered.
In March of last year, I came across Harry at a bus stop. His face was bruised and bloodied and he could barely speak. After I cleaned him up and he’d calmed down, he told me that two men had caught him in an alley and beaten him up. They told him that he’d be killed if he got involved with Kevin Annett’s new Tribunal.
“You made that mistake once Harry, don’t make it twice or we’ll finish the job” said one of the men.
Harry had no reason to lie to me, and every reason to run and hide after the beating. But he stayed on the street, maybe out of intertia, but mostly because it was the only world he knew; and being destitute, he had nothing else to do. But like he told me all the time, he never forgave what had been done to him, and nobody was going to stop him from talking about it.
Somebody finally did stop Harry. A close friend of his told me yesterday that Harry was beaten about the head so badly a few months ago that he suffered “bad brain damage”. He slipped into a coma and never came out of it.
I was always so happy whenever I saw Harry, still alive, at a bus stop or in Oppenheimer Park, even if he was completely tanked or wired with his buddies. It was a miracle to me that he could endure a lifetime of beatings, rape, torture and drugging and still be there, a living witness to so much of our crap.
I’ll remember Harry like that: as one who endures, like the truth itself. I only hope that his example rubs off on us.
The explosive document dates from 1870, and is secreted away in a closed section called the “G 12 collection” in the Huron Diocese archives of the Anglican Church of Canada in London, Ontario.
“I saw it when I worked for the Diocese in 1998″ Leona Moses stated to Kevin Annett and Cheryl Squire in an interview in her home.
“It was a regular contract, signed and sealed, between the Crown, local chiefs of the Six Nations Confederacy, and the New England Company, that ran the Mush Hole (Mohawk Institute Indian residential school). The plan was to get rid of the last of the Mohawks after authority for the school was transferred to Six Nations.”
Leona Moses worked for the Huron Diocese in 1998 under former Bishop Bruce Howe, and discovered the document along with “many things that point to deliberate manslaughter of children” at the Mush Hole school.
“I personally saw letters showing that the church and government knew the Mohawk children were dying in large numbers in the school because of poor food or no food at all, but nothing was ever done about it.
“Every day I discovered lots of evidence that could bring down the church. I wanted to get it out to the world and make my church be held responsible for all those deaths.”
Soon after discovering the “smoking gun” 1870 document, Leona Moses was asked to sign a voluntary gag order by Bishop Bruce Howe, but she refused, and was forced to resign. Other church researchers like Dr. Wendy Fletcher, the present head of the Vancouver School of Theology, agreed to be gagged, along with most of the clergy in the Huron Diocese.
Leona Moses waited until December of 2011 to contact Mohawk elder Cheryl Squire and Kevin Annett, as a result of their commencing test digs at suspected burial sites of children at the Mohawk residential school in Brantford.
At their meeting, Moses claimed to Annett and Squire that she had recently been threatened by present Huron Diocese Bishop Bob Bennett to stay silent about her knowledge of the documents. At the time, Bennett told her “we know all about those deaths of children”, including the deliberate murder of newborn children at the Mush Hole by government doctors.
Last year, Leona Moses asked the Anglican Primate for Canada, Fred Hiltz, to order an opening of the Huron Diocese archives, but Hiltz refused to do so, claiming he had no authority over Bishop Bennett!
“The church even has letters describing how Mush Hole Principal Zimmerman was raping young girls in 1948 and taking part in burying those who died behind the school building. In one letter he writes, ‘We’re forced to bury the children two to a grave now.”
A transcript of the meeting with Leona Moses will be available on the ITCCS statement of claim evidence to be presented at its Common Law Court hearings beginning on September 15.
The surveys and test excavation begun at the oldest Indian residential school in Kanata last October was the most successful effort to date to begin the repatriation of aboriginal children who died and were buried at Indian residential schools.
Not only had nine elders of the Six Nations/Onkwehonwe community given written authorization for our Tribunal to conduct a dig and investigation at the mass graves next to the “Mush Hole”, the former Mohawk Institute run by the Church of England, but our main fieldworker at the site, Kevin Annett – Eagle Strong Voice, was personally authorized to conduct the dig, and was adopted into the Onkwehonwe community and guaranteed its protection and support.
Even more encouraging, because of this authorization, for the first time in history members of the European Parliament indicated they would sponsor a public inquiry into Genocide against native people in Canada if they could receive authentic forensic evidence of the death of children at the Brantford site.
Precisely because of this success, the Mush Hole inquiry quickly became the target of a sustained, professionally organized disruption and sabotage campaign that continues to the present day.
This campaign was aimed primarily at Kevin Annett, employing the standard government black ops methods of “badjacketing”, fear mongering, smears and misinformation, using local native operatives and at least one Caucasian outsider to try to discredit and isolate Kevin within the Six Nations community.
Unfortunately, these methods have been largely successful, and have halted and perhaps permanently destroyed any independent Mush Hole inquiry.
To begin, we feel it essential to remind readers and the Six Nations community that as early as April, 2011, Kevin Annett made it clear to the sponsoring Onkwehonwe elders that the Mush Hole inquiry operated under a real deadline: namely, that concrete, verified evidence of children’s remains had to be received by the ITCCS Central Office no later than March 1, 2012.
This deadline had been requested by European human rights groups, lawyers, and members of the European Parliament who had agreed to sponsor an international inquiry into Genocide in Canadian Indian residential schools once they had the evidence in hand for their human rights committee meeting in Brussels in early March, 2012.
In short, from the moment Kevin Annett was duly authorized by the Mohawk elders to start the dig in April, 2011, he and they had barely one year to produce the evidence that could be acted on by stronger allies with the means to confront Canada and the Crown and Vatican for their crimes against native children.
This fact is important to remember now that many Mohawks seem to have forgotten the deadline that was in place. Instead, some Mohawks have made recent claims that “Kevin rushed things too much at Brantford” or that he “posted evidence on youtube prematurely”, and that these actions are the reason for their disenchantment with Kevin.
In truth, Kevin Annett operated faithfully from start to finish according to his mandate from the Mohawk elders and their agreement that any evidence of children’s remains had to be made known as soon as possible, to guarantee outside help from the European courts and Parliament.
In truth, this deadline is what prompted Kevin to broadcast the evidence from the first test dig at the Mush Hole on the internet, an action that was approved by our Council of Elders. In fact, it was these youtube postings that have sustained the global interest in the Mush Hole dig, and rallied new support for it from all over the world.
Our general assessment of the events at Brantford is summarized in the following statement, which is based on our thorough and regular monitoring of those events and the statements from all the parties involved.
1. It is our opinion that a successful excavation and forensic analysis of the mass graves at the Mush Hole is not viable under the present circumstances in the Six Nations community at Brantford. That community is internally fractured and factionalized, lacking in professional leadership, and embroiled in historical antagonisms which have allowed Crown and Church to keep the indigenous nation there divided and disempowered.
2. Such internal division and amateurism was clearly responsible for the failure of the sponsoring Mohawk elders who invited us to work with them to provide sustained leadership or endure the inevitable attacks that came at them when we began to conduct excavations on the Mush Hole grounds. Quite simply, the sponsoring elders collapsed into fear and uncertainty soon after sustained smears commenced against Kevin Annett. They refused to stand by Kevin publicly or even involve themselves in the inquiry or excavations, as they promised they would do. Kevin was left isolated and alone, and was increasingly blamed for the conflict by a team of state-funded operatives headed by local residents Jan Longboat and Frank Miller.
3. This lack of professional and strong leadership by the Mohawks undermined the positive beginning at the Mush Hole site after GPR surveys and test digs had uncovered some bones and buttons from Mush Hole school uniforms in late October, 2011. Forensic analysis confirmed that while consisting mostly of animal bones, the remains included small bits of bones of children. But the absence of a wider archaeological sample of the site made this initial evidence insufficient for use by the European politicians, who grew increasingly impatient with events at Six Nations. Indeed, when the March 1, 2012 deadline passed with no evidence provided from the dig, the European human rights committee decided to table its sponsorship of a Genocide inquiry until further notice.
4. Realistically, at this point, any hope for a successful uncovering of the mass graves and the full truth at the Mush Hole evaporated; the sabotage campaign instigated by Jan Longboat and assisted by Frank Miller and other operatives had succeeded. And yet after March, Kevin Annett was able to sustain a core group of supporters among Mohawk elders with the help of Cheryl Squire and others from the original sponsoring group. Unfortunately, even that group has now been pressured or influenced to distance themselves from Kevin and the ITCCS, and seem to have fallen for the “blame Kevin” argument generated by the Longboat team and recent plants sent into the Six Nations at Brantford to keep Kevin’s name disparaged and feared there.
5. Despite this sabotage of the Mush Hole dig, thanks to the publicity of its findings generated by Kevin Annett and our network, several other indigenous tribes in Kanata have taken up where the Mohawks left off. Anishinabe families in Ontario and west coast Squamish elders have commenced their own digs for children’s remains at former Indian residential schools. And the upcoming launching of a Common Law Court by our Tribunal and a team of over a hundred advisors and Citizen Jurors has created a new global forum in which the evidence of Genocide by church and state can be displayed, and verdicts issued.
To ensure that this work will not face the sabotage that befell the Mush Hole inquiry, we have instructed Kevin Annett to refrain for now from further involvement with any persons in Brantford Six Nations who played a role in attacking him or impeding his work there, or their associates.
Continual misinformation and sabotage plague that community, and we will not condone or sanction any further disruption or disparagement of Kevin Annett, who is key to the success of our wider work.
On a more personal note, we as a Council are unanimous in our belief that the Mohawk community has wrongfully disparaged Kevin Annett Eagle Strong Voice and shown him enormous disrespect, either by direct and unwarranted attacks on him or by standing by and allowing such an assault to occur.
Such treatment of Kevin was especially abominable, considering that Kevin had been adopted into the Mohawk community and given a name and protection: a committment that was then ignored and neglected.
All of this considered, our Council holds out hope that a genuine inquiry can one day reconvene at the Mush Hole site, once a group of Mohawks takes seriously the need to establish a strong professional team of investigators that will not be intimidated or sidetracked from its purpose: to repatriate children’s remains for a proper burial, gather forensic evidence of their death, and bring that evidence to our international Common Law court.
We embrace all those in Six Nations who wish to constitute such a professional team, and we will work with them and our archaeological advisors to fulfill the original wish of the Mohawk people to bring to justice the murderers of their children.

The Common Law Court of Justice investigating Crimes of Church and State
Public Declaration to Police Officers, Civil Servants and other Agents of the Crown of England – Issued by the Judicial Oversight Panel of the Common Law Court of Justice investigating Crimes of Church and State (Brussels – London)
On September 15, 2012, an International Common Law Court, duly constituted under the Law of Nations, will be convened to consider evidence and hear charges of Crimes against Humanity brought against the Crown of England, the Vatican and other parties.
In the event that the Crown is convicted in this duly constituted Court for such crimes as Genocide, Child Trafficking and waging a War of Aggression against indigenous nations, your continued allegiance and service of this convicted party will constitute criminal collusion and obstruction of justice.
Prior to committing such an indictable offense, you will be asked by this Court to refrain from implicating yourselves with such criminal parties by assuming a position of neutrality in relation to the Crown of England as a possible party to a crime.
As servants of the Public Peace and Welfare rather than of a potentially convicted authority, you will be asked by this Court to place yourselves at the service of a fair and impartial investigation of documented crimes involving the Crown of England.
Accordingly, this Court will be requiring police officers in Canada, England, Australia and other nations to assist it in presenting summonses and other warrants to Crown officials, to aid this Court in the pursuit of justice and due process, and to enforce any verdicts and decisions of this Court regarding the culpability of the Crown for Crimes against Humanity.
This Court will also require that in the course of this trial and upon summary conviction of the Crown, civil servants cease and desist from collecting taxes and administering laws on behalf of the Crown of England and its client governments in Canada, England, Australia and elsewhere, lest by such assisting of parties convicted of Crimes against Humanity these civil servants violate international law and the verdicts of this Court.
If you officers continue to serve as agents of the Crown under these circumstances, you will have betrayed your public trust and responsibility, and disqualified yourselves from holding public office.
In such a eventuality, you may face summary arrest and trial for aiding and abetting those engaged in Crimes against Humanity.
We trust that you will fulfill what is lawful and just, and stand with our Court of Common Law Justice as duly sworn Public Peace Officers. To ensure this compliance, your officers will be approached by agents of our Court to take such an Oath of Service. We expect your cooperation in this matter.

9 pm GMT , Tuesday, July 17, 2012
The Council of Elders of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) has unanimously decided to withdraw from the alleged lawsuit in the Federal Court of Canada (FCC) brought by Jason Bowman on behalf of our Tribunal and our representative, Rev. Kevin Annett – Eagle Strong Voice.
This withdrawal includes Rev. Annett, and is effective immediately, as of 9 pm GMT or 4 pm Eastern Standard Time.
We have terminated our involvement in this alleged lawsuit after learning from FCC officials in Toronto, Canada that no such case has in fact been filed with them by Mr. Bowman.
This decision of our ITCCS Council arises from our resolve to bring about a genuine, competent and effective legal assault on the Crown and the Vatican, and other institutions, for Crimes against Humanity.
Our nine-nation Tribunal represents the hopes and efforts of thousands of victims of crimes by Church and State to bring these institutions to trial and ultimate dis-establishment for their ongoing Crimes against Humanity. Our first obligation is to these victims, and we will let nothing and no-one impede their goal of genuine recovery and justice.
Our Tribunal has decided to withdraw from the Jason Bowman action for three reasons:
1. The failure of Mr. Bowman to file the case in the Federal Court of Canada (FCC) or to exercise proper care and professional diligence, after his public announcement of the case at a press conference held by Mr. Bowman in Toronto on July 4, 2012;
2. Mr. Bowman’s failure to respond to our concerns or to communicate his reasons for not filing the case, or to explain his strategy or actions either to our Tribunal or to his co-plaintiff, Rev. Kevin Annett, and
3. The fact that to proceed with a case in the Federal Court of Canada is to operate within a court that is not of competent jurisdiction to address the matter of crimes against humanity by the Crown itself.
That is, to pursue an action in the FCC would be to recognize the jurisdiction and legitimacy of the very institution we are confronting and naming as an agent of Crimes against Humanity, and would thereby negate and sabotage our own case, specifically by violating Article 25 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which is a foundation of our case.
Our Tribunal wishes first of all to reassure all victims of crimes by Church and State that, rather than representing a step backwards, our disaffiliation from the Bowman action is a step towards a genuine and professionally competent attack on the church, state and corporate agents of genocide and other crimes.
That is, the ITCCS and Rev. Kevin Annett intend to proceed now with many other plaintiffs to take the same evidence and case against the Crown, the Vatican, the government and churches of Canada, and pharmaceutical companies to jurisdictionally competent courts of law not under the authority of the Crown of England or so-called “canon law”. These courts will include those based in other nations as well as de jure Common Law courts within Canada.
We are already working with legal teams in several nations to commence proceedings in such courts.
To clarify, our original aim in supporting the Bowman action in the Federal Court of Canada (FCC) was compelled by the requirement under International Law to “exhaust all domestic legal remedies” before bringing a case into a non-domestic court of law such as the International Criminal Court. We saw Bowman’s efforts as a way to do so.
However, this aim has been irretrievably compromised by Mr. Bowman’s behavior and the fact that proceeding in the FCC will violate Article 25 of the Rome Statute, which compels all citizens to refrain from supporting or colluding with agencies of regimes guilty of Crimes against Humanity – such as, in this case, the government and churches of Canada and the Vatican.
Let us also clarify that, ever since May of 2012, when Mr. Bowman first approached our Canadian representative, Rev. Kevin Annett, and offered to launch a lawsuit with Rev. Annett as a co-plaintiff, the entire process of proceeding with this lawsuit has been completely in Jason Bowman’s hands.
Our Tribunal and Kevin Annett have been forced to rely entirely on Bowman, his word and his judgement, in this matter. We proceeded to do so in good faith, despite having had no previous contact with or knowledge of Bowman or his organization, the Association of Citizen Prosecutors, which after inquiry appears to have no identifiable history.
Neither Kevin Annett nor any member of the ITCCS has been in a position to affect Mr. Bowman’s actions or the process of filing this case in the Federal Court, and we have consistently been kept in the dark by Mr. Bowman about his daily actions and ultimate legal strategy. Such a defective modus operandi by Bowman is self-destructive and bodes poorly for the success of any joint legal action with him against our wealthy corporate opposition.
Clearly, Mr. Bowman’s negligence and unexplained delay in filing the case has provided great aid and ammunition to our powerful opponents. They, and various misinformation agencies and internet operatives, have used and are using Bowman’s delay in filing the case to attack and destroy our credibility, and undermine the legitimacy of our years-long campaign against genocide and crimes committed by Church and State. We cannot allow this destructiveness to carry on.
In closing, we wish to make it clear that:
1. By this statement and our withdrawal from the alleged Bowman lawsuit, we are not implying anything about the motives or personal character of Jason Bowman; and
2. At no point did our Tribunal or Rev. Kevin Annett aid or conspire with Jason Bowman or any other party to mislead or defraud the public or the court in this matter, but at all times we acted only in good faith, and with trust in Mr. Bowman and his declared efforts.
We regret that our trust and faith was, in this case, misplaced.
Despite these events, we remain even more committed to pursuing the legal prosecution and eventual dis-establishment of the Crown, the Vatican, and the other named defendants as conspirators in Crimes against Humanity, in de jure common law courts and other public arenas. We will not be deterred in this effort by any momentary delay or unprofessional disruption.
We call upon concerned citizens everywhere, and all survivors of church, state and corporate terror, to rally behind our efforts and to contact our office or Rev. Kevin Annett at firstname.lastname@example.org to join our legal campaign.
Issued respectfully as a Public and Media Statement

Rev. Kevin Annett: ITCCS de jure Common Law Courts and the Republic of Kanata
Posted on June 26, 2012 by itccs
by Kevin D. Annett
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!”

A Directive from ITCCS International, Brussels
On May 30, our global network of over fifty organizations issued an historic declaration to the Vatican and Joseph Ratzinger.
Hands off our kids
This statement announced our intent to globally publish the identity of known child raping clergy and their helpers, and to perform citizens’ arrests of these sick predators because of the continued refusal of police and judicial authorities to do so.
We have begun this campaign by gathering the evidence of the names, locations and pictures of such child rapists in a central archive whose evidence will be made public. If you have knowledge of such criminals, please forward it immediately to this email.
Armed with this information, the critical phase in our campaign will then commence: organizing Action Groups to publicly post the identity of these rapists and physically arrest and detain them so they cannot harm any more children.
These Child Protection Action Groups (CPAG) are now being formed in Canada, the USA, Ireland, Australia, Italy and England.
Each CPAG will consist of a disciplined team of between five and ten people led by a Coordinator. The entire team will receive training in common law procedure and protocol for undertaking citizens’ arrests.
The CPAGs are not disorganized “vigilantes”, but principled community protectors who will treat proven child rapists firmly and non-violently, and will remove them from their church and their office in full public view.
The CPAGs will not be disrupting church services but will quickly escort the child rapist from the building after declaring him to be a threat to public safety.
To be clear, the CPAGs will not be acting alone when they enter church property and detain child rapists, but will so as part of a larger public presence.
Our supporters will stage accompanying protests, sit-ins and occupations at the same time as the arrests are being made in order to alert the public and media, and to demonstrate how these actions are a self-defensive public safety measure and are legally necessary to ensure the safety of our children.
One of our ITCCS organizers in the eastern United States, for example, writes,
“There’s a convicted child molester preaching every Sunday in the local catholic church here in (blank). The local Bishop’s ignored all our letters and leaflets aboutthis guy, and so have the police. So now we’re going ahead and we’ll defrock him in plain sight. We’ll confront him and tell him he has no right to be a priest, then strip him of his robe and vestments, right there, and escort him out of the church. I’ve seen the Mohawk women do that to their own corrupt chiefs. The public shaming always works best!”
This is the gist of our efforts: to prevent child rapists and the church officials who protect them from being able to operate any longer.
It’s important to remember that since churches are publicly funded organizations maintained through your taxes, churches are public space, and you therefore have every right to enter church property, especially if you suspect or know that child rapists and their protectors are operating in them.
During our actions, if the police are called by church officials and they arrive, a CPAG spokesperson will immediately approach them and read to them a public statement that calls upon the police to exercise their oath of public office and assist us in detaining a known child rapist who is a clear and present danger to children. They will be handed a Public Letter of Demand calling on them to do so.
If they refuse to respond and even begin to challenge our actions, they will then be formally deputized and instructed to assist us in arresting someone who is a clear danger to the community.
If the police nevertheless act to protect the rapist, they will have violated a public responsibility placed upon them, and will have thereby surrendered their right to hold their office. At that point under common law, they can be legally ignored. Any act by the police after that to prevent our defense of children will constitute an illegal assault and obstruction of justice, and they can be tried and convicted of these offenses.
For our own security and defense, every CPAG will be accompanied during their actions by legal observers and several videographers who will witness and record the entire course of events.
From our long experience, it is rare for the police to physically intervene in these situations – especially when the media and witnesses are present – since the church officials fear any possible damage to their property or reputations by engaging in direct confrontations with protestors. Normally, the cops simply stand by and watch, especially when a large crowd is present. So numbers and public exposure are our best allies.
As well, don’t forget that the CPAGs will be showing up at the churches unannounced, and will therefore be able to confront, detain and escort from the building the rapist before the police even arrive.
Nevertheless, tactically speaking, your CPAG may choose to mount a diversionary action to draw off the police if they do show up while the rapist is being detained – such as by staging a church occupation to coincide with the citizens’ arrest. This is especially advisable if your numbers are small.
Once your CPAG has successfully removed the rapist from the church premises and stripped him of his robes of office, and filmed the entire event, a CPAG representative will hand the rapist a formal Cease and Desist Restraining Order banning him from being within a hundred yards of the church in question. He is then to be released. We cannot therefore be accused of kidnapping.
If the rapist ignores this Restraining Order, he can then be permanently detained, and any church officials who aid and abet him can themselves be placed under citizens’ arrest and the church permanently occupied as a public safety measure.
All of the recorded evidence of these actions will be posted on You Tube and on our archived website in order to alert the community to these individuals, and to encourage similar actions around the world.
If you wish to volunteer to be a part of a CPAG, contact this email or the ITCCS organizer in your area. A schedule of training events and other upcoming actions will be published here.
The actions we take today will save the lives and sanity of tomorrow’s children. It is therefore our sacred duty to bring our deeds into conformity with our love for all children, by placing their well-being and safety before all other considerations. May that knowledge give you the courage to act!
Contact us directly for more information and assistance. For the children!
