Why, and How, We Must Arrest

Prime Minister Steven Harper, the Pope, and other Malefactors: Learning from the Liverpuddians

by Kevin Annett


 Hidden from History

“If the Nuremburg Laws were applied to our nation, every president since Harry Truman would have been hanged for crimes against humanity.”
– Noam Chomsky
That is the nub of the matter.
It’s a strange thing to live in a culture where criminals are officially in charge. The glib anaology to a family ruled by a child raping parent only goes so far, because in the so-called modern world, the problem isn’t one dictator but a globalized corporate Moloch that chews up the innocent and the earth, and rules by fear. And to assimilate all the living into its metallic self, this machine requires amoral criminals at the levers of its operation.
Family, schooling, and the daily wage-slave drudgery that grinds us into mental pulp has moulded us to accept these criminals as a fact of life – read, death – which probably explains why usually only three or four people will turn up to our public meetings dealing with the church, corporate and state-sponsored trafficking and murder of children.
So it may seem very odd and presumptuous for me to suggest that it’s time we begin arresting the people in charge of our governments, corporations and churches for their crimes against humanity.
If you had have been near Liverpool last week, you would not think my proposal so strange, or fanciful. For in the small town of Birkenhead, more than 600 local people invaded a court room and arrested a an especially corrupt judge, and then declared a common law court in place of the one formally run by the fraudulent fiction known as the “Crown”.
I was lecturing in Denmark at the time, and I missed the event, but speaking to the men and women who made it happen, I am struck by their exhilirating optimism, the resurgent power they feel now, and their complete assurance that the days of the present regime in England are numbered.
I immediately thought of all the candidates among judges, politicians, corporate moguls and popes that are ripe for a similar arrest and detention. I recalled that Canada has the lowest conviction rate of child rapists in the world. And I remembered the tragic faces of aboriginal survivors of rape and torture in Indian residential schools as they watch time and again as the courts of Canada exonerate and protect the butchers responsible, and their bosses.
We are not born or meant to be such slaves. Our common law heritage gives you and I the power and the moral obligation to arrest and try those persons and groups who threaten our peace and safety, when our police, courts and governments refuse to do so.
I say the time to do so is long, long overdue.
Doing so is not as difficult as our fears imagine, for the power of any elite is mostly illusory and based on our ignorant compliance. I was there on the bright Vancouver morning in March, 2008 when Squamish hereditary chief Kiapilano evicted the Roman Catholic church from his territory for its murder of his people. I saw the police sergeant back away from our protest with the words,
“If that’s a legal eviction order then we’ll have to enforce it.”
Kiapilano’s order was in fact perfectly legal, and lawful: entered in the records of the Vancouver court registry and stamped with his own sovereign authority that has never been surrendered. And since the Catholic church, naturally, tried ignoring the Eviction Notice, it has been illegally trespassing on Squamish nation land ever since April 8, 2008, and Kiapilano and his agents, including me, have the right to start arresting anyone who enters a Catholic church in Vancouver.
The mind boggles at the possibilities.
Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper sits every day on illegally occupied land of the Algonquin Nation in what is called Ottawa. As an unlawful squatter, and as the agent of a foreign power that oversaw the slaughter of indigenous children in residential schools, and as the guy who has engineeerd an official criminal conspiracy to hide this crime that he calls the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission”, poor Steve is a prime candidate for common law arrest and trial. As is the Pope himself.
Knowing our power, and the reason why we must act, makes the “how” quite straightforward. The next step requires courage, clarity and the will to act.
Much has been written about the means by which personal sovereignty is declared: on how we withdraw our consent from the system, issue a Notice of Intent, and nullify our allegiance to Crown, Church and other corporate, admirality law based institututions.
It is time for us to take the next step, and issue a similar Proclamation of Sovereignty at the collective level, and reclaim our world according to natural law. For only when we establish such collective sovereignty, as the Birkenhead protestors effectively did by reimposing the common law on a fraudulent, usurping legal power, will we have the social means to bring to trial so-called heads of state in a contemporary Nuremburg Trial.
Some of us took such a step on July 1, 2009, in Winnipeg, Canada, when we proclaimed a sovereign Republic of Kanata and nullified our allegiance and recognition of the so-called Crown. This movement has endorsed Squamish Chief Kiapilano’s eviction order and other land reclamations by other indigenous nations, like the Six Nations near Branford, Ontario.
But its real test will be when the majority of non-native, “ordinary” Canadians take a Pledge of Allegiance to the common law society that we seek to create from the grassroots.
This kind of creating a new society within the shell of the old is the big “how”: we have to create, or rather recover, a truly sovereign Nation, in Canada, England, America, and everywhere. The smaller, personal “how” was shown in Birkenhead, and lies in our daily refusal to vote or pay taxes to the old regime, or buy its products, or use its thieving banks or credit system.
This is the philosophy behind our upcoming International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, to convene in London, England on September 12. Our Tribunal will be staffed with its own body of Common Law Peace Officers who will arrest and detain the guilty and enforce sentences made against, for example, those who harm children or protect those who do: even if the convicted parties call themselves a Pope or a head of state.
We will never undo an enormous historical crime like child abuse, genocide and ecocide without dismantling the institutions and mindset that caused it: and those responsible for maintaining it. I say that it’s time we begin such a dismantling so that we can recover our beautiful planet; but first by letting go of our conditioned compulsion to trust the system by merely “protesting” or lobbying Moloch, that ancient eater of the innocent.
The test will be what we do now. I for one will no longer look to a rapacious monster of corrporate church and state for a justice or “healing” which it is incapable of enacting. Nor will I give my allegiance to such a Thing, ever again.
How about you?

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.”~ Frederick Douglass

“We will bring to light the hidden works of darkness and drive falsity to the bottomless pit. For all doctrines founded in fraud or nursed by fear shall be confounded by Truth.”
– Kevin’s ancestor Peter Annett, writing in The Free Inquirer, October 17, 1761, just before being imprisoned by the English crown for “blasphemous libel”

“I gave Kevin Annett his Indian name, Eagle Strong Voice, in 2004 when I adopted him into our Anishinabe Nation. He carries that name proudly because he is doing the job he was sent to do, to tell his people of their wrongs. He speaks strongly and with truth. He speaks for our stolen and murdered children. I ask everyone to listen to him and welcome him.”
Chief Louis Daniels – Whispers Wind
Elder, Turtle Clan, Anishinabe Nation, Winnipeg, Manitoba
