Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Kevin Annett, to Speak in Savona on May 23
SAVONA, ITALY — Kevin Annett, who has led a twenty year campaign to expose the trafficking of children and bring criminal charges against the Vatican and other churches, will be speaking at a press conference on Thursday, May 23 at 11 a.m. in Savona at the Libreria Ubik di Savona (Corso Italia 116 r, Svona 17100 tel: 0198386659).
Annett was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize last month by American and Canadian scholars “to honor his tireless efforts on behalf of children and other victims of crimes against humanity”. He is now on an extended speaking tour in Europe to unite victims of church violence as part of his work as Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS).
In addition, Kevin Annett has led protests outside the Vatican since October, 2009 alongside victims of church abuse. In February of this year, he helped indict former Pope Benedict and other church officials before an International Common Law Court of Justice.
At the May 23 press conference, he will describe the growing campaign in Italy and abroad to seek the arrest and prosecution of the Pope for aiding child rape and trafficking in the Roman Catholic church.
