'Unrepentant' reveals planned genocide

Submitted By Jane Bark

Tri-City Documentaries Second Saturday Series presents a very important film and speaker on the atrocities at Native residential schools, and the campaign, now beginning, to bring Catholic priest child abusers to justice.

"Unrepentant" documents Canada's "dirty secret" - the planned genocide of aboriginal people in church-run Indian Residential Schools - and a clergyman's efforts to document and make public these crimes. First-hand testimonies from residential school survivors are interwoven with Kevin Annett's own story of how he faced firing, "de-frocking," and the loss of his family, reputation, and livelihood as a result of his efforts to help survivors and bring out the truth of the residential schools. Annett continues a David and Goliath struggle to hold the government and churches of Canada accountable for crimes against humanity, and the continued theft of aboriginal land.

We are very pleased that Rev. Kevin Annett, who is featured in the film, will be our speaker. We look forward to hearing of his work to expose the improprieties at Native residential schools and his involvement with the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (www.itccs.org).
