Church Genocide Against Canadian Indians

From: "Kevin Annett"
PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE WIDELY
The first documented report of the planned genocide of aboriginal peoples by church and state in Canada is now available on the internet.
"Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust" is a 280 page, six year study of the evidence concerning the deaths of more than 50,000 aboriginal children in residential schools run by the United, Anglican and Roman Catholic churches across Canada until 1984. It was compiled by public investigative bodies, including a United Nations-affiliated Tribunal in June, 1998 in Vancouver, Canada. It contains the personal testimonies of nearly 200 eyewitnesses to murder, sterilization, torture and forty eight other crimes against humanity perpetrated against aboriginal people by church, government and RCMP officials between 1923 and 1984.
In addition, it documents ongoing crimes against native peoples, including the continual theft of their lands and resources by multinational corporations, the murder of native activists by police and vigilante groups, and the abduction and killing of native children in government and police-protected pedophile rings, especially on Canada's west coast.
The report's website is still under construction, due to the volume of original documentation from government and church archives which corroborate the first-hand testimonies. But it can now be accessed at this site:
Please circulate this posting as widely as possible, especially to aboriginal and human rights groups, the media, government and public officials, and United Nations bodies.
"Hidden from History" is published by The Truth Commission into Genocide in Canada, a public grassroots body formed in Vancouver in August, 2000 which is carrying on the work of the previous Tribunals into residential school atrocities. Its aim is to bring to international justice those responsible for crimes of genocide against native peoples in Canada.
