Genocide Charges to be laid against Queen

*Genocide Charges to be laid against Queen*

Black GST Elder Robbie Thorpe today announced Charges will be laid against the Sovereign Head of Australia, Queen Elizabeth II for Crimes against humanity, including Genocide, against the Indigenous peoples of Australia under the International Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, the United Kingdom International Criminal Court Act 2001, and the Commonwealth Criminal Code Act 1995 (Amendment Division 268 2002) — Genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes against the administration of the justice of the International Criminal Court.

"Successive Australian Colonial Governments have been, and are unwilling or unable to resolve these fundamental questions of law. Therefore, the Queen of Australia is personally responsible for the crimes perpetrated against our people and I will be presenting these charges against her when she arrives in Melbourne next week" said Mr Thorpe today.

"Queen Elizabeth II has been the sovereign ruler of Australia for the entire time that these laws have been in place and she has done nothing to stop the continuing genocide of our peoples, which is going on in this country.**

"The Queen is demonstrating utter contempt towards the Sovereign law of our people if she is to visit this country without addressing these fundamental legal issues, and for this, she must be brought to account under International Law.

"The Queen is the defender of the Christian Faith which defines her laws and it is incumbent upon her to visit the Sacred Fire to discuss

Sovereignty and Treaty issues with our Sovereign people.

"The onus is on the Queen to rectify and address this unfinished business or she will have to answer these questions in the International Criminal Court.

Of course, there's a history between Palestinian people and the Israeli people, and I'm not denying any of that. But that act alone lit a fire, which can only be put out with the release of those hostages.” More
