Volunteer Information Bulletin
From the International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)
and its affiliated Common Law Courts
You are part of a growing movement of people who have awakened to the war being waged against We the People by a global corporate tyranny. You have volunteered to work with us to stop the crimes of the powerful from being directed against our sacred liberties, our children, and our planet.
In June of 2010 fifty men and women from six countries formed the International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State, the ITCCS. Our aim from the beginning was to expose and confront churches and governments for their crimes, particularly against children, and to prosecute these institutions and halt their reign of terror.
In the course of our work we have successfully convicted and brought down Popes and Prime Ministers and saved the lives of dozens of innocent children. We have exposed and broken up Satanic cults that torture and kill the innocent. And we have begun to return power into the hands of the people by reclaiming our natural liberty through common law courts of justice.
Our movement is global, operating in nine nations. But our strength lies in small groups of dedicated men and women like you, who are taking action in their own communities to protect their families and neighborhoods from brutal tyranny and predators.
Your job as an ITCCS volunteer is threefold: to educate, to take action, and to mobilize your communities in defense of themselves and their children.
"What gives you the right to do what you're doing?". You'll likely have this question put to you at some point.
Our answer is simple: our authority arises from our unalienable liberty and conscience as free men and women under the Natural or Common Law. We the people are the original and final source of sovereignty, authority and the law. When governments and laws threaten our lives and liberties, we have the right to covenant together to protect ourselves and form new governments and our own local courts of justice.
Or, in the words of the United States Supreme Court,
"Every man is independent of all laws, except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institutions formed without his consent or that threaten his wellbeing. No-one is compelled to obey an unjust law and no court is obliged to enforce such a law ... An unjust or unconstitutional law is in reality no law, but is void and inoperable" (Cruden v. Neale, 1896)
"The people are supreme, not the state. The state cannot diminish the rights of the people, since at the inception of our Republic sovereignty devolved on the people and they are truly the sovereigns of the country. But they are sovereigns without subjects, with none to govern but themselves." (Chisholm v. Georgia, 1922)
Even outside the United States, these same legal principles are enshrined in the English common law tradition and are inherent in all freeborn men and women, regardless of the laws and statutes of their government or country.

The children of your community are under attack, as is your air, your water and your right to speak and live freely without fear. What is to be done?
First, identify the problem and document it with hard evidence. Find out who is harming the children, polluting your local community or assaulting your freedoms. Evil always has a face and an address: find out both and name them, loudly and clearly.
Second, tell your community about these threats and gather people together to talk it over. This is best done by convening a regular weekly community gathering called a Peoples Assembly, where issues can be debated and people can learn to act together and govern themselves. But do more than talk: launch a public information campaign around whatever injustice or crime you are confronting.
Third, structure yourselves into a permanent group with a Convener and a Secretary. You are the local leadership; don't be afraid to take the lead. Identify others who share your committment and organize them into your group. The aim of any such group is to spark awareness and action among the people at large: to make the people restless for justice and change.
Those are the preliminary steps. Then the fun begins.
Your adversary seems to have a lot of power and influence. They will use that to try to intimidate and stop you. But their very size can be used against them, if they are provoked properly and if you don't give up.
Your biggest weapon is the truth you hold and the fact that your enemy is guilty and they know it. That makes them easy to provoke and expose, and gives you a moral high ground that you must never surrender. Once you take public action, if you keep shoving that truth in your opponent's face you will keep them on the defensive and gain time and credibility for your movement, regardless of its size.
At the same time, you must be totally realistic about what you face and the ruthlessness of your adversary. Keep a low public profile until you have the numbers and position to take them on openly.
But remember: even one individual can often embarrass big corporations and governments into revealing their crimes and compromising themselves. But that individual has to be brave, persistent and committed to the struggle for the long term.
Some Do's and Don'ts
DO be self-reliant at all times. You are your own experts, your own leaders, and your own media. It's a law of nature that every part of the whole contains the full power of the whole. Great power is unleashed in us and among us when we step forward to act for justice. And so rely on your inborn knowledge and street smarts. Document and record everything that you do.
DO NOT look to others to do your work for you. Especially DO NOT expect compassion, fairness or morality from the forces you are confronting. They are motivated by two things: self-preservation and money. Those are their weak points that you must continually target.
DO keep a constantly high public profile once you are prepared to take action. Your job is to awaken and mobilize people, but they need to know who you are and what the aims of your movement are. Also, ALWAYS define the issues at stake and keep hold of the "narrative", or your opponent will.
DO NOT let the enemy guide your actions. To defeat you they will use the "Three D's" against you: Denial, Distraction and Discrediting. Ignore their lies and smears about you; DO NOT respond to their petty insults or become angry and defensive. That's what they want, to throw you off your purpose. STAY ON THE ISSUE and avoid personality and ego battles.
DO have a source of income and a system of safe houses for your group. You need a material base to support your movement. So put out a call for community funding from the people you are trying to reach, but not in the abstract. Tell them what needs to be paid for and give them a personal stake in the battle. "Help us monitor and stop child predators: Donate to the Child Defense Group", for example, might be one appeal.
DO NOT work at first with people you don't know: consolidate a core group of reliable people who are trustworthy before recruiting others.
DO, wherever possible, go outside the experience of your opponent. Avoid doing what they expect and strike where they don't expect you to. Keep your public action plans secret and use deception and unforeseen maneuvers to confuse your enemy.
DO NOT let momentary setbacks demoralize you. Defeats are inevitable: they are your best teachers. Keep learning and applying the lessons you learn and as a veteran you will soon become experienced and effective.
Convening Peoples' Assemblies and Common Law Courts
Our aim is ultimately not to merely protest and educate but to establish self-governance and freedom in our own communities. We can only stop institutionalized crime by disestablishing the guilty bodies and taking back power for ourselves, and that means political, economic and legal power.
History shows us that every successful grassroots revolution built their own political assemblies and courts of law alongside the status quo, not after but during the struggle. Anyone who sets out to change the status quo needs to show people that first of all they can be defended. And that's the purpose of our own local Assemblies and courts: to first protect the people and then create the basis for something different.
Doing so is actually easier than it may seem. We start by calling a weekly public Assembly to air grievances and debate what laws and changes we want in our community. No matter how small its beginnings, this Assembly is the pole of attraction by which we build a movement and reclaim our society from the bottom up.
Under common law, such an Assembly has the power to give itself a Self-Governance Charter and establish a Court of Record to try cases and bring in lawful verdicts. And to protect this court and enforce it warrants and decisions, a common law Peace Officer or Sheriff must be appointed who has the power to raise and train local citizens in a militia to protect the community.
By these steps we are showing the people and our opponents that we mean business, and even though small, we are setting the terms of battle. Doing so forces even the biggest enemy to respond on our terms and gains us great power in any conflict.
Remember: establishing these new bodies is nothing less than direct democracy in action, and must always be presented as such to the world. Approach your local police and Sheriffs and involve them in our Courts by deputizing them as common law peace officers. (See the Documents in our Common Law Training Manual, above) Win over agents of the status quo, don't fight them.
Taking the First Step
The Peoples Assemblies and Courts may seem like far-off goals to you right now. Regardless, they will grow up naturally if we begin with the right vision and are constant in our commitment and actions.
For now, what you can achieve are the three initial steps we've described: Define and document the issue you will campaign on, educate the public about it and your movement, and organize yourselves into a permanent local group.
Once you have formed such a group, keep it small and action oriented. If you have too many people you are an easier target for infiltration and disruption. Launch direct action groups of three to five people that can leaflet, protest and educate, and thereby build your movement. Be audacious and courageous.
The ITCCS has three General Field Secretaries who work on the ground to help build and sustain such common law action groups. Call on the Field Secretaries for help. They can provide training workshops, resources and experience, but ultimately the leadership rests in your hands.
If there is only one of you in your community who wants to take action along these lines, do not get disheartened. You are the seed from which much will grow. Your first job is to find two or three other people who will read this Bulletin and our other resources and join up with you. Even if you can't and you remain physically on your own, you can be connected to the nearest Common Law Action Group.
Also remember that the ITCCS operates a weekly blog radio program, Radio Free Kanata, every Sunday at 3 pm pacific time at https://bbsradio.com/radiofreekanata . Its shows include reports from activists on the ground and workshops to train and educate organizers like you. Use this program as an organizing tool by having people gather to listen to it every week and springboard from it to taking local actions. And also volunteer to do a program yourself on local issues. (Write to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved) .
Finally, take to heart the words of the American patriot Samuel Adams, who helped defeat the world's biggest Empire. In 1774 when the Revolution looked improbable, Adams said,
"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of the people."
It's now up to each one of us to do so.
