U.K. Publisher Announces “Unrepentant: Disrobing The Emperor.”

London, August 29, 2010 – John Hunt Publishing, a prominent U.K. publishing
house, has announced the forthcoming release of Reverend Kevin Annett's new book
documenting “the Canadian genocide.” The defrocked United Church of Canada
minister describes the atrocities endemic in 141 native residential schools with
the death of 50,000 children. The last school closed in 1996.

Publication of “Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor,” with an Introduction by Dr.
Kurt Kaltreider of Ashland, Oregon, follows closely recent extensive worldwide
media attention to child abuse, trafficking and international cover-up by
religious and government organizations.

Refusing to remain silent, Annett was first fired from his position as minister
and in 1995 was defrocked in a “trial” by his employer, the United Church, the
only instance of a minister's “delisting” in Canadian history. Alone against the
forces of church and state Annett, as skid-row minister, broadcaster, author and
film-maker, has lectured widely in North America and Europe, an advocate for
international recognition and justice for aboriginal people.

Already posted on Amazon for advanced orders, “Unrepentant: Disrobing The
Emperor,” will be in wide distribution throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, South
Africa and North America by all major distributors and e-book media.

In her review of Kevin's book, Lydia White Calf of Boulder, Colorado, wrote in

“As the wife of a Lakota Sioux elder, I had heard of the abuses practised since
1870 in hundreds of “residential schools” in both the United States and Canada
by the major church organizations. Never until this incredible book came into my
hands had I gauged the enormity of these crimes, which continue today on both
sides of the border in a more subtle fashion.

“Kevin's depiction of 'the Canadian genocide,' exposed him to an unbelievable
inquisition and persecution by his employer the United Church. To cover up his
revelations, that Church stripped him of his livelihood and a promising career,
his family and his reputation.

“On at least three occasions physically assaulted by anonymous thugs, he was
denied recourse by the courts and has been afforded no recognition or help by
the Canadian government which, since the 19th Century, was fully complicit in
the systemic abuse by the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United churches.

“After years of struggle against enormous adversaries, Kevin Annett has produced
an award-winning documentary film, hosts a radio talk show in Vancouver, is the
unpaid pastor on Vancouver's skid row and has founded a nine-nation organization
under the auspices of the UN working toward an international tribunal to bring
justice to aboriginal people.

“Kevin has lectured widely at universities from McGill to Berkeley to Boston
College, and to humanist, native and community groups on two continents. He
returns to Europe in September for his fourth film and lecture tour in 16 cities
in Ireland, Italy, Germany, Belgium and the UK.

“Last April, he conducted a memorial service and a symbolic rite of exorcism in
front of the Vatican in St. Peter's Square. Twelve hours later a tornado –
almost unprecedented in that time and place – devastated central Rome and the

“Rarely in history has a single man stood alone against such formidable
adversaries because of his insistence on the truth and justice for the
powerless. 'Disrobing The Emperor' is the story of one man's fight for truth. In
a broader sense, it points hopefully toward a better world for all nations and
their indigenous people.”
