Kevin is singlehandedly exposing what amounts to a genocide against the aboriginals of Canada and in particular the complicity of the Catholic church both in the atrocities and in the cover-up that has gone on ever since. As well as being removed from his own church for allowing Indians to
attend services and speaking up for them publicly he has suffered all manner of other persecutions and is fully aware his life is on the line. Yet he will not be silenced until the whole truth is out and the Pope and others are called to account for these terrible crimes.

In September 2010 Kevin Annett travelled to London to coincide with the Popes visit there to serve a summons on both the Pope and the Queen Elizabeth 2 for complicity in crimes against humanity.

Kevin D. Annett (aka. Kevin McNamee-Annett, and Eagle Strong Voice
born 1956 in Edmonton, Alberta)
is a Canadian writer and former minister of the United Church of Canada. He has authored two books about Canadian aboriginals: Love and Death in the Valley and Hidden from History:
The Canadian Holocaust.
Education and ministry
In the 1980s, Annett graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor's degree in anthropology and a Master's degree in political science. In 1990, he graduated from the Vancouver School of Theology with a Master of Divinity, and was subsequently ordained by British Columbia Conference of the United Church of Canada. In 1990-1991 he served in churches in rural Manitoba, and in 1991-1992 served at the Fred Victor Mission in Toronto, an outreach street-ministry of The United Church of Canada. Beginning in 1992, he was the minister to St. Andrew's United Church in Port Alberni, British Columbia and resigned from this position in January 1995.
Since 1997, Annett has been placed on the Discontinued Service List of The United Church of Canada, and can no longer function as a minister of that denomination.

Residential school work and writings
Annett has written two books on the subject of residential school abuse in Canada. The first, Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust, was published in two editions: 2001, and 2005. The second, Love and Death in the Valley, was published in 2002.[4] In 2006, Kevin produced a documentary on this topic: Unrepentant: Kevin Annett and Canada's Genocide which won the 2006 award for 'Best Director' at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival.

2008 protests {see also: Squamish Nation
On March 22, 2008 "Friends of the Disappeared" disrupted the Easter Sunday Mass of Vancouver's Holy Rosary Cathedral. In addition to causing a disturbance in the actual sanctuary, the protesters harassed parishioners as they arrived for Easter Mass by calling them "murderers.
" Annett claimed these actions were "authorized" by Gerald Johnston, who claimed to be the Squamish First Nation's hereditary chief Kiapilano. On March 17 the Squamish First Nation issued statements that Annett "is not a member of the Nation and has no association with the Nation whatsoever", that they do not recognize Gerald Johnston as a hereditary chief, and that he has "neither the authority nor the capacity" to act on their behalf.
