Clergyman Who Blew the Whistle on Murder of Canadian Native Children to Visit Texas this November
"Kevin Annett is more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than many who have received it in the past."
- Dr. Noam Chomsky , Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Rev. Kevin Annett, who single-handedly forced the government and churches of Canada to acknowledge that massive numbers of children died in their Indian boarding schools, is coming to Texas this November as part of a continent-wide speaking tour to condemn what he calls "Canada's upcoming version of the Warren Commission report".
Annett, the author of two books and producer of an award-winning documentary film on Genocide in Canada, has waged a heroic David and Goliath battle for nearly fifteen years, and at great personal cost, to bring to light hidden crimes in his country's Indian residential school system.
"No names will allow to be named, no wrongdoing in a residential school can be discussed in these TRC hearings. That's nothing less than an official whitewash" says Annett.

While in Texas, Kevin Annett will also be screening his award-winning documentary film UNREPENTANT, which documents the Canadian genocide and his long struggle to bring the guilty to justice.
"Once again, the parties responsible for a crime will be investigating themselves, while the truth remains buried in hundreds of mass graves across the continent."
Annett is pushing for an international Tribunal, with the powers to arrest and prosecute, to unearth the real history of official Genocide in Canada. In the face of continual harassment and censure, Annett is touring America to build support for this Tribunal, and to ask Americans to boycott Canadian tourism and the 2010 Olympics in British Columbia.
"Native people were murdered by governments and churches on both sides of our artificial border. And they're still dying at third world levels. I'd like to know what John McCain and Barack Obama are going to do to hold themselves and Canada responsible for this genocide."
