A Special Communique concerning the papal visit to the USA
27 August, 2015
Brussels and New York
The ITCCS and its American affiliates will be conducting public protests and spiritual convergences in Washington DC, New York City and Philadelphia between September 23 – 27, 2015 during the visit of Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, to the USA.
These actions will be designed to continually confront the Pope throughout his state visit, and to share with the public and media the evidence of his proven crimes against humanity, including his complicity in the trafficking and disappearance of children.
An itinerary of these actions follows.
“By canonizing a mass murderer of California Indians the very first day he’s in America, Francis is showing the world that he stands in the genocidal tradition of his church, despite all his talk of reform” said one of the New York City organizers of the protests.
“The Pope can’t deny that he’s personally implicated in the selling of Argentine children during the dictatorship there. We have the witnesses. And we’ll be outside the United Nations, and the United States Congress, and wherever this child trafficker shows his hypocritical face”.
The ITCCS is also working with spiritual elders from many communities to hold exorcism rituals and prayer vigils during the papal visit, outside the catholic services he will be conducting. More details of these ceremonies will be forthcoming.
ITCCS officers will also attempt to serve a standing international Common Law Citizen Arrest warrant on Jorge Bergoglio while he is in America, and will request police assistance in their action.

Canada and its Churches must be prosecuted and disestablished for their proven Crimes against Humanity
(A Special Op Ed piece submitted to major world media)
By Rev. Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div.
Special Adviser to the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State
Recently, the Canadian government officially acknowledged that thousands of Indian children died under its care in the infamous, church-run Indian residential school system. (New York Times, June 3, 2015) The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley MacLachlan, has stated publicly that genocide did in fact take place in these schools. And yet despite this acknowledgement, and the proven intent by Canadian church and state to wipe out non-Christian Indians under the cover of parochial schooling, the perpetrators will apparently face no consequence for their crime.
In what is a clear and gross obstruction of justice, Canada and its churches have since 2008 indemnified themselves from any liability for the deaths of these children, silenced eyewitnesses and hidden or destroyed key evidence, and actively impeded a genuine investigation of the Indian residential schools atrocities. As one observer of the government’s stage-managed “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (TRC) noted last year,
“Canada is spending $68 million to create an appearance of disclosure while censoring from the TRC record any evidence that may implicate itself and the churches in the death of children. Lacking even the power to subpoena or prosecute those responsible for what is obvious genocide, the TRC can best be described as a failed attempt at cosmetics.”
Realistically, one can expect such manipulation and cover-up by any regime caught in its own malfeasance. Canada is hardly unique in that respect. Nevertheless, under the United Nations’ Genocide Convention, which Canada ratified in 1952 and to which it owes compliance, all signatories to the Convention must actively “prosecute and punish” Genocide once it has been proven. Not only has Canada not fulfilled this obligation under international law, but it has actively subverted this moral and legal requirement, and impeded justice.
For a growing number of Canadians, it is difficult to justify our allegiance to a government that is operating as a rogue body under the Law of Nations. That law – especially the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court – absolves citizens from allegiance to their own government when the latter is perpetrating or concealing war crimes or Crimes against Humanity, as Canada is clearly doing. This fact should give solace and encouragement to the nearly sixty percent of Canadians who want an end to their ties with the Crown of England – one of the main actors of the Canadian Genocide.
More broadly, the authority of “Canada” and its crown courts as a whole is in question, operating as they are as unaccountable bodies that flout the rule of law. Time and again, these courts have denied and circumvented litigation brought by aboriginal people that attempted to charge Canada and the Crown with genocide. As one frustrated native litigant said to me in 1998,
“Was Auschwitz just about rapes and beatings? Then how come the mass murder of our people is?”
It is a fact that Canada, the British Crown, the Vatican and the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada were responsible for sustaining an annual death rate in the Indian residential schools of nearly fifty percent for over a half century: a fact that makes highly suspect the “official” claim of only 4,000 deaths in these schools.The routine and deliberate spreading of tuberculosis among healthy children, the systematic rape, torture and killing of non-Christian Indians, the standard practice of sexually sterilizing children at puberty in special Indian hospitals, and the continued destruction of native families and their lands and resources: all of these proven crimes point to an enormous and very intentional Genocide.
Indians in Canada today continue to die at the same levels as they did during the residential schools era. The routine trafficking of native children, murder of Indians by police, and desecration of ancestral lands by resource-hungry corporations is as much a feature of Canada as are the stereotypical red coated Mounties.
No-one is obligated to fund or obey the laws of a criminal regime like Canada. The Nuremberg precedents establish that such a regime has lost its right to lawfully govern: a fact that is fueling a growing movement to create a constitutional Republic in Canada that is free of the murderous legacy of Church and Crown.
Sir Edward Coke, a champion of the Common Law against the arbitrary rule of the British monarchy, declared to King Charles in 1628,
“Be you ever so high, you are not above the law”.
This unalienable truth is more than a warning to tyrants and criminals in high office: it can and must be an operating principle when dealing with our home grown war crimes. The only question now is what agency will compel such justice, and disestablish criminal institutions like those in Canada?
The answer, of course, is We the People: the source of all government, justice, and law.

He is an award-winning author, film maker and human rights consultant, and is a co-founder of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (www.itccs.org) .
From Kevin Annett’s upcoming book Unrelenting …
The Plague reached out and punished us after we counted coup on it that day at the Cathedral. It especially hated Billy Combes because, ennobled and emboldened by his capacity to stand up against it, he went on to undress its horror even more, and name a name, on our airwaves.
We didn’t expect the counter-attack, as elated as we all were by the media fireworks that followed our church occupation and similar seizures by friends of other churches in Toronto and Winnipeg.
The Thing was on the defensive. Ottawa announced an “official investigation” and a possible upcoming “apology” for the residential schools, goaded by Members of Parliament who, echoing our line, began calling for a return of the children for a proper burial. And like a strategic missile launched at a dying foe, our year-in-the-making documentary film about the Canadian Holocaust entitled Unrepentant was released precisely at that time, and was watched everywhere: including in the corridors of power.
All of this made even our most dejected aboriginal members become cautiously hopeful: Billy Combes in particular.
Before our seizure of the catholic Cathedral, he couldn’t even approach a church without becoming ill, no doubt recalling his sodomizing and torture on the rack in the Kamloops residential school basement. But that day of our action, Billy had been there with us, wandering up and down the church aisles, giving leaflets to aghast parishioners and grinning in triumph. And the week after the event, he was actually able to stop drinking rot gut booze, for the first time in many years.
“I couldn’t let you guys down” he explained to me shortly after, when I’d asked him how he’d found the nerve to walk into the cathedral with all of us.
“Now it feels like some of the fear’s gone for me”
So inspired, Billy began to share even darker remembrances on the airwaves of Hidden from History. And one day, he named a perpetrator who calls herself the Queen of England. As through the mists of time …
None of the children knew who she was. All they knew is that they were actually fed and given new clothes the day before she arrived. She wore an expensive suit and bright white boots that laced up the front. The boots were remembered by the children who survived what followed, because all of them had to kneel before it and kiss it.
Billy Combes was barely eleven, and he and his buddy Jessie Jules tried to get out of attending the picnic with the strange woman, since they smelled trouble. But all of the children in those two dorms of the Kamloops Indian School were herded by catholic priests with cattle prods into the front hallway of the school, and from there, into the school bus that took them to Dead Man’s Creek, two miles west of there.
The woman was called “Your Majesty” by the priests who accompanied her, and she was joined by a thin and cold-eyed man that one of the priests called the Prince. It was a short ride down a dusty gravel road.
Once they’d arrived at the Creek, the woman and the Prince stood apart from the children and examined them like they were cattle at an auction. The woman even pointed at several of the children. The priest in charge, a Brother Murphy, began separating ten children from the main group: seven boys and three girls, all of them from that part of central British Columbia.
None of them was older than ten years old.
The Queen and the Prince left with the children soon after that, while the other kids were given lemonade to drink. Billy remembers the lemonade. It had a strange taste to it, and all the remaining kids were forced to drink it. Billy remembers nothing after that until he awoke in his bed back in the dorm.
None of the ten children who left with the Queen and the Prince were ever seen again.
Brother Murphy heard Billy asking questions about the absent children a week or so later, and after pummeling Billy unconscious he placed him in a closet for two weeks where Billy almost died. But he never forgot about the ten missing children, or the strange woman with the white laced boots, on that day of October 10, 1964: a date whose numbers, like the disappeared boys and girls, all add up to ten.
“And Job had seven sons, and three daughters … and behold, there came a great wind from beyond the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, which fell upon the children of Job, and they were killed …” (Job 1:2, 19)
Billy Combes began speaking about that day when the Kamloops Ten disappeared; not just on my radio program, but in interviews, at rallies, and even once to a reporter who quickly hurried away when he realized what Billy was saying.
That went on until the day that Billy was killed at St. Paul’s catholic hospital in Vancouver, just before he was to come to London, England and speak about what he knew before a public Tribunal.
New York City:
Fresh on the heels of an official Canadian acknowledgement of the genocide that killed thousands of Indian children, the man who brought it all to public light has written a hard hitting play about the crime that reviewers have already called “a stirring masterpiece and whodunit … akin to The Man in the Glass Booth”. (Betty Richeson, Republican News Service)
The play is “Doppelganger”, and will commence production in September. Its protagonist is a former Canadian clergyman on trial for war crimes at the hands of an aboriginal government in a post-revolutionary Canada.
The author of the play is Kevin Annett, who led the twenty year campaign to expose and prosecute crimes in Canadian Indian residential schools.
“We’re putting out a casting call in September and will begin production that same month” Kevin announced today from New York City, where he is lecturing and reading from his new novel Samuel Wedge: Memoir of Necropolis. (Author House, 2015)
“Doppelganger is a play that turns the tables on the ones who got away with the crime, and places them in the docket. Naturally, Canadian theater companies have been loath to produce it. But considering the timeliness and undeniability of the issue, this is a work that cries out for viewing.”
Kevin Annett is the co-producer of the historic award-winning documentary film Unrepentant, which when released in early 2007, won instant acclaim and helped force the Canadian government “apology” for residential schools the following year. Kevin has thrice been nominated for the Nobel Peace prize by American scholars.
Actors and theatrical groups can view the work and contact Kevin Annett at email@example.com or by leaving messages at 386-492-2395 in America.
Issued 7 July, 2015
This week, Canada and its churches publicly whitewashed their killing of tens of thousands of indigenous children with an “official report” that exonerates the perpetrators, and hides continuing genocide . But according to Kevin Annett, who has exposed the Canadian Holocaust for over 20 years, Christian Canada and the British Crown are now morally and legally nullified, and a new Republic is lawfully warranted .
When the Killers conduct the Autopsy, don’t expect the Truth!
June 6, 2015
Whenever the winners of a war write its official history and pronounce absolution on themselves, the results are both tragic, and comic. Canada demonstrated that in spades this past week when the government-run “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (TRC) released its “official” report on the homegrown church-and-state slaughter of thousands of native children in the so-called “Indian residential school” system.
Despite the rapturous attention the TRC report received in the world press, it said nothing we didn’t already know, and that I personally didn’t broadcast to a deaf world as far back as June of 1998. What the TRC report did do was to cast a thick veil around Canada’s crimes of the past in order to protect its crimes of the present, like institutionalized child trafficking.
To the uninformed, and to those who somehow consider it legitimate for criminals to investigate themselves, it is a convincing enough veil. All the right words were used in the TRC report, concealed of course by horror-softening adjectives: an antiseptic term like “cultural genocide” becomes a substitute for the truth of tortured bodies, sterilized genitals, and violated and torn little children tossed into mass graves at night. Can 50,000 dead innocents really constitute simply a “cultural” extermination?
Besides, regardless of its beguiling doublespeak and outright lies, the TRC report could hardly have unearthed any type of truth about crimes in the residential schools when the primary perpetrators of those crimes – the Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada – were given years to destroy incriminating evidence, trash or hide documents, silence eyewitnesses and obliterate grave sites stuffed with their young victims.
Any judge that allowed a suspected killer to do such a thing would obviously be charged with aiding and abetting crime, and removed from his office. But that’s precisely what the TRC – whose Directors were nominated by these same churches – allowed them to do.
At what even the media called the “circus like atmosphere” at the TRC forums, any residential school survivor who wished to speak had to submit their statement to the TRC officers for screening and censoring before they could make them. Then they got a whopping ten minutes to make their statement. Yet Church officials who used the forum to spout their “we were only trying to do good” propaganda had no such time restrictions placed on them. “It was disgusting, like sitting in the same room with my rapist and having to go through it all over again” one old Cowichan woman said to me after a TRC event in Victoria, BC.
Even worse, whenever survivors mentioned the names of their torturers or those who’d killed children, it was all carefully stricken from the TRC transcripts. That fact alone goes far to disqualify the TRC from any claims at legitimacy or legality: something the global media seem to be ignoring.
“How can all this crap produce anything but a total white wash of our genocide?” bemoaned Squamish Chief Gerry Kiapilano to me after sitting through an early TRC forum in Vancouver.
A white wash is precisely what the TRC report produced, seven years later. But if one can stomach sifting through its hundreds of politically correct, lawyer-crafted pages, much of which is distraction and padding, the ultimate strategy of the report does emerge: namely, to minimize the total dead body count in the residential schools so as to “prove” that the genocide wasn’t intentional. For if there’s no intention, there is no crime, under the law.
Half the children dead is clearly a deliberate genocide, whereas one tenth of them dead is simply “negligence”. And so the TRC spin machine went to work to convince us that, rather than the figure of 50,000 and more dead children yielded by a simple calculation of the constant 40% plus death rate that was the norm for nearly a century, only “four of five thousand” kids actually died.
That low a figure, spread over more than one hundred residential schools, means that according to the TRC, only fifty children died in the entire system every year, or one death for every second school! Such a grotesque Holocaust denial is not only absurd but disproved by all of the records, which routinely report dozens of deaths at individual schools every year, especially in the west.
Given such bald faced deception, it’s hardly surprising that the TRC chairman, a corpulent puppet Indian named Murray Sinclair, recently issued the lie that “the (Canadian) government stopped publishing residential school death records in 1920”. That’s an odd claim to make, even for a sellout, since I have time and again found and published such government death records that span the years 1889 to 1969. I even sent copies of them to Murray.
If the intent of these “schools” wasn’t genocidal, then why did that enormous death rate of 40% to 60% never subside, decade after decade? And why was it present the very first year that the western residential schools opened, in 1889? (www.itccs.org)
Neither the TRC, nor anyone in Parliament or the media or the universities, has ever bothered to address these questions, any more than they are searching for all of those missing children in the twenty eight mass graves documented by me across Canada. For to do so would be to point towards the obvious conclusion that the TRC was established to avoid: that Canada and its churches deliberately exterminated tens of thousands of children, and that this genocide machine has never been turned off.
The massive trafficking and torture of aboriginal children through the government’s “child care” and foster care system; the continual murder of reserve Indians for their lands and resources; and the “Agenda 21” plan of depopulating indigenous nations to one tenth of their present levels by mid-century are the hard indicators of these ongoing Canadian crimes that the TRC was set up to conceal.
Fortunately, there is a little matter called International Law, which ever since the Nuremberg judgements has clearly said that citizens under a proven criminal regime like Canada are not only obligated but required not to pay it taxes or obey its laws. Such a regime, in fact, has lost its right to govern, and it must be replaced by a new political arrangement that is lawful, and that reflects the will of the people.
In short, more than damage control was at work in the TRC fiasco. The very survival of that corporate redundancy called the crown of England is at stake, especially now that patriots have proclaimed an alternative to it and to genocidal Canada, through the new common law jurisdiction of the Republic of Kanata. (www.kanatarepublic.ca)
Rather than the neat resolution hoped for by its blood soaked creators, the TRC has unwittingly opened the door to the disestablishment of Canadian church and state as convicted criminal actors, by confirming that thousands of children died at their hands. None of us are compelled to cooperate with genocidal institutions, and indeed, to do so is to collude in a crime against humanity.
Amidst a similar revolution against the British crown and its tyranny in 1778, Thomas Paine observed that regimes that are collapsing tend to make decisions that are increasingly suicidal, as if seeking out their own destruction. Christian Canada and its sponsors in London and Rome have borne out this axiom. The only question now is whether We the People of Kanata will take advantage of such an historic opportunity, and cleanse our country once and for all of its legacy of institutionalized mass murder.
A Commentary by Kevin D. Annett
It was eighteen years ago this month that I first handed to a Vancouver Sun newspaper editor a list of possible mass grave sites of Indian residential school children on Canada’s west coast, based on government documents and statements from eyewitnesses who buried children there. I and these witnesses were flatly ignored: not only then, but every other time over the subsequent years that we presented such evidence to the same newspaper.
Year after year, despite all our public protests, forums, and documenting of the location of the mass graves of these children, the Vancouver Sun’s indifference to the worst crime in Canadian history continued. And this same blind eye approach was replicated by every other “mainstream” media outlet across Canada – even when, in December of 2011, these media received from me evidence of bone and clothing samples unearthed from the Brantford residential school mass grave.
But lo and behold! Suddenly this past week, as if I’d never spoken to them, the Sun newspaper finally reported on residential school graves! I wasn’t mentioned in their article, of course; nor was the word “genocide”, or any of the hundreds of witnesses to these crimes that our work has given voice to since 1997.
Instead, a young, fresh faced graduate student nobody’s ever heard of received front page billing for her supposed “identifying” of children’s graves at the United Church residential school in Brandon: one of the very sites we had named to an oblivious Sun newspaper in March of 2008.
Did somebody say spin doctoring?
This past week, I searched for our eyewitnesses in Vancouver’s downtown eastside. I didn’t find one of them. They’re all gone now, either dead, bought off or drifted off somewhere. So it’s safer these days for the killers in church and state to talk about the undeniable mass graves of their victims, through carefully manicured media stories that lead us nowhere.
That’s what the guilty do, after all: and they do it successfully, thanks to the cowed indifference and the five second memory of not only the drugged up public, but the legions of bought and paid for academic “experts” on our home grown Genocide that killed many tens of thousands of little children.
These days, I feel a lot like a solitary survivor of a lost continent, or people: watching as history gets rewritten, and reframed, so that the official truth, the land, and all the arrangements stay in the same bloody hands. But like my old buddy Joe Hendsbee, a blacklisted communist longshoreman used to tell me,
“When they gotta keep telling their Big Lie, over and over, it just proves they’re fucking desperate.”
Paraphrasing Joe, the author of The Art of War, Sun Tzu, once wrote,
If an enemy commander repeatedly speaks soothing but false reassurances to his people, he has lost his power.
The Canadian establishment has in truth lost its power, and stands exposed as a corrupt and murderous regime, along with their sponsors in London and Rome: something that all the King’s horses and all the media spins won’t alter one bit. And nothing is absolved, and nothing can be healed, as long as that regime totters on, like a condemned ghost.
And that, dear readers, leaves matters in your own trembling hands. There is nothing compelling you to believe, or fund, or obey murderers in high office, or their laws. Why so many of you who are aware of these genocidal crimes continue to do so I chock up to habitual behaviour rather than deliberate collusion. But ultimately, that’s no defense, of course. For nothing has been absolved, and nothing healed.
Let me repeat that: Nothing has been absolved, and nothing healed.
Every crime, like every action, has its consequence that cannot be denied: that’s simply the Law of Nature. And so one of these days, when the child killers who wear clerical robes along with their paid journalistic hacks awaken to the fact that there is no escape for them or for their deeds, we will witness – even here in Canada – one of those lovely historic moments when the little shit on the big throne tumbles and falls.
And that’s up to us.
A Public Reclamation Order issued today seizes the property, assets and records of the Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada, as reparations for their genocidal crimes. Issued by the High Court of the Republic of Kanata, the Order authorizes all citizens to disestablish these criminal bodies. See www.kanatarepublic.ca and www.itccs.org . April 18, 2015.
