the dirty truth of genocide, oh genocide — Powell River, the Sunshine Coast, the Pulp Mill: memories of a kid jigging for cod, landing 40 pound salmon, running away from grizzlies
Very important December 26 message —
Issued by Annett’s friends on December 26, 2021
Many people know and love Kevin Annett Eagle Strong Voice as an unrelenting and courageous fighter for justice and for children. Those of us who have worked alongside him know him to be a loving and humble man who has never asked for anything for himself, but has devoted his life to serve others.
But now, on his behalf, we are asking for those who support Kevin to repay some of what he has given to humanity.
Last month, Kevin was diagnosed with an unusually large kidney stone that is unable to pass, and is continuing to grow. Very soon, it will threaten his kidney and cause other, possibly permanent damage.
His kidney stone must be surgically removed, but the cost of such surgery may exceed $40,000, since his British Columbia Medical Plan does not cover this procedure outside of the province. (Reluctantly, Kevin was forced to leave B.C. last summer after repeated attacks were made against his life.) At age 65, Kevin has little savings, has been permanently blacklisted from employment for over twenty years, and is blocked by the Canadian government from receiving Old Age Security and a pension.
We, the Friends of Kevin Annett, are asking you and those you know with the financial means to help us pay for the cost of Kevin’s kidney operation. We have already raised $5000 in donations but our goal is to raise $50,000, which will cover his treatments, surgery and hospital stay, along with follow up preventive treatments.
If you and others can contribute, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Kevin personally at email@example.com , or leave a message at 386-868-0218. We can arrange direct wire transfer deposits into an account we have set up for this fundraising effort.
On a final, equally urgent note, we are concerned that Kevin’s life will be in danger if he enters a hospital for surgery. Several members of our movement have died while in hospital because of documented foul play.
Knowing this risk, we ask that you help us create a circle of protection around Kevin during and after his surgery, through your physical or prayerful presence with him, and by alerting the world when he is undergoing surgery. We will hold a 24 hour vigil at the hospital during that time, and will have legal observers in or near the operating room.
Do not let Kevin’s many powerful adversaries cause his death, for then all of us will suffer! His life is in God’s hands, but also it is in ours.
We thank you and look forward to hearing from you,
The Friends of Kevin Annett
Watch the documentary — Unrepentant: **Winner: Best International Documentary at the 2006 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. **Winner: Best Director for an International Documentary at the 2006 New York International Film Festival.
EXCERPT: “…This documentary 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…”
Ahh, why are those Cahtolic Churches being “trashed”?
I would be happy to speak to you about the social tensions and conflict caused by unpunished crimes committed by the Roman Catholic church, including its standing policy known as Crimen Sollicitationas that requires that Catholics not report in-house child abuse to the police and help cover it up. That criminal conspiracy has helped caused the death of tens of thousands of native children in the misnamed “Indian residential schools” and intergenerational trauma, suicide and misery. And the failure of the government, the courts, and police to hold the Catholic church accountable under the law has created the outrage and frustration that leads to broken church windows and what you call “vandalism”.
Considering that the Catholic church is actively subverting the law by witholding from your police force evidence of child abuse in its Vancouver churches, many people are wondering why neither the courts nor your Department are taking action to stop such criminality by the church. Instead, your main concern appears to be protecting their property. I am sure that neither of you wish to appear to collude with criminality, no matter who commits it.
Over the years, we have provided to the police and media considerable evidence of child trafficking networks being operated in Vancouver and at such locations as Holy Rosary Cathedral and the Vancouver Club. And yet the police have time and again done nothing about it. Such a tacit collusion with a criminal conspiracy to protect child rapists may account for the frustration felt by people victimized by that church that leads to attacks against church property. But surely the systematic violation and taking of children’s lives by that church is as serious and much worse a crime than the breaking of church windows. (Source)
Christmas, Christians — “When the Lord your God brings you into the land that you are entering to take possession of it, and clears away many nations before you, […] and when the Lord your God gives them over to you, and you defeat them, then you must devote them to complete destruction. You shall make no covenant with them and show no mercy to them.” Deuteronomy 7:1-2
In Annett’s documentary Unrepentant, First Peoples spoke to abuse, trauma, torture, and deaths in residential schools. The number that specifically stood out was a woman holding a sign that read 50,000 killed. I asked Annett if he expected ground-penetrating radar to adduce the deaths at the residential school in Port Alberni?
Annett replied: “The general problem is that the serial killer is in charge and the truth works around the edges of the ‘mainstream’. GPR surveys have already been done at the Alberni death camp and the records are public info, also held in our ITCCS archives. They indicate sinkholes and massive soil dislocation.”
What about the churches — Catholic, Anglican, and United — how can they atone for the crime of genocide?
Annett: “The churches can only atone by being shut down and having their property and assets seized as criminal organizations – a requirement under international law; and having their officers arrested and jailed under standing warrants from our 2013 court action.”
Annett spoke to the role of the governments of Canada and its RCMP in the entrenchment of colonialism on First Nation land.
Annett: “But as long as they’re protected by ‘crown’ jurisdiction that won’t happen, hence the need for a new political arrangement – the Republic of Kanata (www.republicofkanata.ca).”
