This Interview was recorded in person in Brantford Ontario Canada on Indian Lands.
Kevin Annett reveals Canada's darkest secret - the deliberate extermination of indigenous (Native American) peoples and the theft of their land under the guise of religion. This never before told history as seen through the eyes of this former minister (Kevin Annett) who blew the whistle on his own church, after he learned of thousands of murders in its Indian Residential Schools..."
Canadian Human Rights Campaigner Unites Survivors of Church Terror across Borders in a New International Tribunal - Rev. Kevin Annett and group to return to Europe in September and Confront Pope. The man who forced an apology from his government and held an exorcism rite outside the Vatican last April is raising the stakes on institutionalized child torture this fall. Rev. Kevin Annett of Canada is uniting with groups from seven nations to bring criminal charges and sanctions against the Roman Catholic church and its accomplices. And they'll commence their efforts on Friday, September 17 in London, England, when Pope Joseph Ratzinger arrives there to address Parliament.
Rev. Annett has led a fifteen year campaign to expose crimes by Canadian churches against children in Indian residential schools. He and a few others have won recognition, reparations and the beginning of justice for tens of thousands of aboriginal survivors of Canada's murderous Indian residential schools. In June, 2008, Annett and his network forced the government of Canada to publicly apologize for the Indian residential schools and to admit that thousands of children died in them. This September and October, Kevin Annett and three others will be conducting his third European speaking and organizing tour to win support for an international Tribunal into crimes of church and state. Between September 10 and October 31, in the accompaniment of his wife Carol, Ken Bearchief, a native lawyer spearheading residential school reparations in the United States, and Peter Yellow Quill from the Anishinabe Nation, he will travel to Ireland, England, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia and Germany, to hold vigils outside the Vatican and the United Nations in Geneva, and work with survivors of church terror in all these countries.
While in Europe, Kevin will also publicly launch his new book, entitled "Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor", published by O Books in England. Besides confronting the Pope and pressing for his arrest, Kevin's group will also rally outside Buckingham Palace in London to seek a reply to a letter his network sent to the Queen of England over two years ago, concerning the fate of native children under her care.
Following his historic memorial service and public exorcism outside the Vatican in October, 2009, Kevin and his group will also be meeting with senior politicians in Italy to win support for a motion in the European parliament to have Canada and its churches charged with crimes against humanity.
A complete itinerary of Kevin's tour follows, along with photos and other information. It is sponsored by The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, of which Kevin's Canadian group, The Friends and Relatives of the Disappeared, is a member, along with The Templemore Forgotten Victims Group of Antrim, Ireland, Survivors of Clergy Abuse - Australia, and many others.
