WASHINGTON -- The lnternal Revenue Service on Thursday unveiled an

overhauled mission statement to reflect the agency's new emphasis on serving

The new statement is simple and direct. The IRS mission is to "provide America's
taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax

responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all."
The new language represents the new direction for the lRS, which is working to
transform itself into a customer-oriented organization. The mission also reinforces the
agency's duty to administer the tax laws fairly for everyone.
"This mission statement reflects the new attitude at the IRS," said Charles O.
Rossotti, Commissioner of lnternal Revenue. "Our top priority is putting the interests of
the taxpayers first, and this is spelled out simply and clearly in the mission statement."

The pledge will serve as a daily reminder to people both inside and outside the
IRS about the agency's mission . The 27-word statement will be prominently featured on

1998 tax publications, at IRS offices around the country and on the agency's website.


"Words alone aren't going to change the lRS, but this serves an important



purpose," Rossotti said. "The mission statement will be a reminder that we must be
dedicated on a day-in, day-out basis to serving taxpayers. This is just one of the steps
that we need to take."

The new mission statement was mandated by the IRS Restructuring and Reform
Act approved by Congress and signed July 22 by President Clinton. The legislation
required the IRS "to review and restate its mission to place a greater emphasis on

serving the public and meeting taxpayers' needs."

The IRS circulated drafts of a new mission statement in July and August. The
document was finalized after receiving comments from a variety of sources, ranging
from public feedback on the agency's lnternet site to suggestions from tax

professionals and IRS employees.

The final mission statement underscores the agency's efforts to help individuals
while ensuring that all taxpayers are seryed the by agency's commitment to apply the
law fairly to all.

[Note to editors: The new mission statement replaces an older version dating to the
1980s. The previous statement said, "The purpose of the lnternal Revenue Service is
to collect the proper amount of tax revenue at the least cost; serve the public by
continually improving the quality of our products and services; and perform in a manner
warranting the highest degree of public confidence in our integrity, efficiency and

5. 5/98: [quoting]

During the trial of James and Sharon Patterson, (Case 6:97-CR-51) William Wayne Justice. Judge of the United States District Court

Texas-Eastern Division when presented with iaw stated:

"l take my orders from England. This is not a law this court goes by."

For all of those who did not believe that the United States was under Great Britain here it is straight from the mouth of a Federal
Judge. How much more evidence 'do you need?'America has never been Free.

The Revolutionary war was a fraud perpetrated on the American people. The war's purpose was to centralize power and make the
people easier to control.

All Federal Judges. Congressmen, U.S. Attorneys. State Judges. Legislators and most Attorneys know this and are in fact British

Theiriob is to keep the peopie in line and to be productive slaves which they (The British Agents) are greatly compensated for. The
police do not know that they work for Great Britain they too have been deceived so don't attack them.

It is time for everyone in America to know the Truth. Let us all work together in exposing the British Empire. Please re-fax and e-mail

this release to every Attorney, Judge, and Legislator in your area to let them know they have been unmasked. Please get out your
Yellow Pages and start faxing everyone in your area and also read this release over every radio show possible. We have printed
thousands of evidence packages and mailed them across America that prove that the United States is a British Colony. lt is time to
send the British back to England. We must work together because if. we do not. we are all doomed.

Your Friend.

S.l. 1997 NO.1778 The Social Security ( United States of America)

Order 1997 Made 22nd of July 1997 coming into force 1st September 1997, At the Courl at Buckingham Palace the 22nd day of July
1997. Now, therefore Her Majesty an pursuance of section 179 (1) (a) and (2) of the Social Security Administration Act of 1992 and all
other powers enabling Her in that behalf, is please, by and with advise of Her privy Council, to order, and it is hereby ordered as

"This Ord er may be cited as the Social Secu rity (United States of America) Order

997 and shall come into force on 1st Septem ber


Does this give a new meaning to Federal Judge William Wayne Justice siating in court that he takes his orders from England? This
order goes on to redefine words in the Social Security Act and makes some changes in United States Law.

Remember, King George was the "Arch-Treasurer and Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire and c, and of the United States of

See: Treaiy of Peace (1738) B U.S. Statutes at Large. Great Britain which is the agent for the Pope, is in charge of the USA

What people do not know is that the so called Founding Fathers and King George were working hand-n-hand to bring the people of
America to there knees, to install a Central Government over them and to bind them to a debt that could not be paid. First off you have

to understand that the UNITED STATES is a corporation and that it existed before the Revolutionary war. See Respublica v. Sweers

Dallas 43. 28 U.S.C. 3002 (15)

Norv. you also have to realize that King George was not just the King of England. he was also the King of France. Treaty of Peace

U.S. 8 Statutes
at Large 80.

OnJanuary22,1783 Congressratifiedacontractfortherepaymentof 21 loansthattheUNlTEDSTATEShadalreadyreceiveddating

from February 28,1778 to July 5, 1782. Now the UNITED STATES lnc. owes the King money which is due January 1. 1788 from King
George via France. is this not incredible the King funded both sides of the War. But there was more work that needed to be done. Now

theArlicles of Confederation which was declared in force March 1, 1781 States in Article 12 "All bills of credit emitted, monies
borrowed,and debts contracted by, or under the authority of Congress, before the assembling of the United States, in pursuance of the
present confederation, shall be deemed and considered a charge against the United States, for payment and satisfaction whereof the
said United States, and the public faith are hereby solemnly pledged."

Now after losing the Revolutionary War, even though the War was nothing more than a move to turn the people into debtors for the
King, they were not done yet.

Now the loans were coming due and so a meeting was convened in Annapolis, Maryland, to discuss the economic instability of the
country under the Articles of Confederation. Only five States come to the meeting, but there is a call for another meeting to take place
in Philadelphia the following year with the express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation.

On February 21 , 1787 Congress gave approval of the meeting to take place in Philadelphia on May 14, 1787 , to revise the Articles of
confederation. Something had to be done about the mounting debt. Little did the people know that the so called founding fathers were
acutely going to reorganize the United States because it was Bankrupt.

On September 17, 1787 twelve State delegates approve the Constitution.

Adoptionofthisconstitution shall beasvalidagainsttheUnitedstatesunderthisconstitution.asundertheconfederation.

Another interesting tidbit can be found at Article

one Section Eight clause Two which states that congress
has the power to borrow
money on the credit of the United states This was
needed so the united states (which went into Bankrupicy
on January 1, iTBg)
could borrow money and then because the states
were a party to the constitution they would also
be liable for it.

Now back to the Militia, Just read Article One Section Eight clause (15)which states that it is the militia's job to execute the laws of the


Now read Clause (16) Which states that Congress has the power to provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the Militia, and for
governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States ... the Militia is not there to protect you and me,


is there to collect our substance.

As you can plainly see allthe Constitution did is set up a Military Government to guard the King's commerce and make us slaves.

lf one goes to 8 U.S. statutes at large 116-132 you will find "The Treaty of Amity, Commerce and Navigation. This Treaty was signed
on November 1gth, 1794 which was


years after the War. Article 2 of the Treaty states that the King's Troops were still

occupying the United States. Being the nice King that he was . he decided that the troops would return to England by June 1st. 1796.
The troops were still on American soil because. quite frankly the King wanted them here.

Here is the key to were this started:

Many people tend to blame the Jews for our problems. Jewish Law governs the entire world. as found in Jewish Law by MENACHEM

"Everything in the Babylonian Talmud is binding on all lsrael.

Every town and country must follow all customs. give effect to the decrees, and carry out the enactment's of the Talmudic sages,
because the entire Jewish people accepted everything contained in Talmud. The sages who adopted the enactment's and decrees,
instituted the practices, rendered the decisions. and derived the laws, constituted all or most of the Sages of lsrael. lt is they who
received the tradition of the fundamentals of the entire Torah in unbroken succession going back to Moses, our teacher."

--Y:. I r

Now turn to the "The Shetars Effect on English Law" -- A Law of the Jews
Becomes the Law of the Land. found in "The George Town Law Journal. Vol 71: pages 1179-1200." lt is clearly stated in the Law
Review that the Jews are the property of the Norman and Anglo-Saxon Kings,

It also explains that the Talmud is the law of the land. It explains how the Babylonian Talmud became the law of the land. which is now

known as the Uniform Commercial Code. The written credit agreement

the Jewish 'shetar' is a lien on all property (realty) and today

it's called the mortgagel

The treatise also explains that the Jews are owned by Great Britain and the Jews are in charge of the Banking system.

We are living under the Babylonian Talmud, it is where alt of our problems come from. lt was brought into England in 1066 and has
been enforced by the Pope, Kings and the Christian churches ever since. lt is total and relentless mind control, people are taught to
be ieve in things that do not exist.

Now before you scream thatthe UCC is unconstitutional l'm sorry people, you are not a party to any constitution. Read the case cite

"But, indeed, no private person has a right to complain, by suit in court,

on the ground of a breach of the Constitution. The Constitution

it is true, is a compact, but he is not a party to it." Padelford, Fay & Co., vs. Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Savannah 14 Ga. 438,

You have to understand that Great Britain.(Article six Section one) the United States and the States are the parties to the Constitution
not you.

Let me try to explain. lf I buy an automobile from a man and that automobile has a warranty and the engine blows up the flrst day

have it. Then I tell the man just forget about it. Then you come along and tell the man to pay me and he says no. So you take him to
court for not holding up the contract. The court then says case dismissed. Why ? Because you


not a party to the contract. You

cannot sue a government offlcial for not adhering to a contract (Constitution) that you are not a party too. You better accept the fact
that you are a Slave. When you try to use the Constitution you are committing a CRIME known as CRIMINAL TRESPASS, Why ?
Because you are attempting to infringe on a private contract that you are not a party to. Then to make matters worse you are a debt
slave who owns no property or has any rights.

You are a mere user of your Masters property! Here are just a couple of examples:

"The primary control and custody of infant is with the government"

Tillman V. Roberts. 108 So. 62

" Marriage is a civil contract to which there are three parties-the husband. the wife and the state." Van Koten v. Van Koten. '154 N.E.

"The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State: individual so-called "ownership" is only by virtue of Government. i.e. law
amounting to mere user; and use must be in accordance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State. Senate Document

No.43 73rd Congress'1st Session. (Brown v. Welch supra) You own no Property because you are a slave. Really you areworse off
than a slave because you are also a debtor.

"The right of traffic or the transmission of property, as an absolute inalienable right, is one which has never existed since governments
were instituted, and never can exist under government." Wynehamer v. The People.
13 N.Y. Rep.37B.48l

Great Britain to this day collects taxes from the American people. The IRS is not an Agency of the United States Government.

Alltaxpayers have an lndividual Master File which is in code. By using IRS Publication 6209, which is over 400 pages, there is

blocking series which shows the taxpayer the type of tax that is being paid. lvlost taxpayers fall under a 300-399 blocking series, which
6209 states is reserved, but by going to BMF 300-399 which is the Business Master File in 6209 prior to 1991, this was U.S.-U.K. Tax
Claims, meaning taxpayers are considered a business and involved in commerce and are held liable for taxes via a treaty between the
U.S. and the U.K,, payable to the U.K. The form that is supposed to be used for this is form 8288, FIRPTA-Foreign lnvestment Real
Property Tax Account. The 8288 form is in the Law Enforcement Manual of the lRS. chapter 3. The OMB's-paper-Office of
Management and Budget. in the Department of Treasury, List of Active Information collections, Approved Under Paperwork Reduction
Act is where form B2BB is found under OMB number 1545-0902, which says U.S. with holding tax return for dispositions by foreign
persons, of U.S. Form #8288,#8288a.

These codes have since been changed to read as follows: lN/F 300-309, Barred Assessment, CP 55 generated valid for MFT-30,
which is the code for the 1040 form, IMF 3'10-399 reads the same as IMF 300-309, BM 390-399 reads U.S.-U.K. Tax Treaty Claims.

Your labor is measured in current credit money. You are allowed to retain a small portion of your labor so that you can have food,
clothing shelter and most of all breed more slaves, Did you ever notice how many of the other slaves get upset if you try to retain your
labor. You are called an extremist. terrorist and sometimes even a freeman.

The United States, Great Britain and the Pope are not the problem. it is the other slaves. We would be free if the want-to-be-slaves
were gone. The United States, Great Britain and the Pope would not even exist, because no one would acknowledge them. I for a
matter of fact, think that those who are in power are also tired of the slaves. A I the slaves do rs stand around and MOO!!! For free

The Pope is the ultimate owner of everything in the World. See Treaty of 1213, Papal Bull of 1455 and 1492.



have to understand that all slavery and freedom originates in the mind. When your mind allows you to accept and understand that the
United States, Great Britain and the Vatican are corporations which are nothing but flctional entities which have been placed into your

W.J. Perry
Mexican Government's Official PIan for a Takeover of America

Thu Dec 19 18i34:54 2002

The Mexican Government's Official Plan for a Takeover of America

By W.J. Perry I December 12, 2002

There are approximately 18 million Mexican immigrants living in the United States today. Out of that 18 million, it is estimated that

million,ornearly2Opercent.areillegal aliens.ThoselSmillionMexicanspresentagrowingthreattoAmerica
because many play a dual citizenship role officially encouraged by the Mexican government. This is


no secret: it s all


Mexico s offlcial ',National plan of Development 2001-2006." This shocking document is a five-year plan full of political rhetoric
emphasizing planned improvements for every aspect of Mexico s infrastructure, but it also lays out specific strategies for
expanding the nation s political reach far beyond the US-Mexico border. In other words, Mexico is systematically trying to cultivate
dual loyalties. i.e. disloyalty. among its ethnic compatriots in America. This is a naked expansion of Mexico s national interest at
the expense of ours: the mystery is why we are tolerating it.

"Globalization" is the buzzword that appears numeTous times throughout Mexico s plan. To achieve that goal, the Mexican
government is counting on its citizens living abroad to strengthen Mexico s influence throughout North America. The Mexican
government is demanding that we give all Mexican illegals a free pass, and also support them with numerous social services paid for
by American taxpayers. Some of


like free medical caTe -- we do not even provide to our own citizens. Mexico s plan

specifically oulines its intent concerning Mexican citizens who have entered the United States illegally in a subsection titled "Defense
Of Mexicans Abroad." The plan states:
',lt is important to note that even if Mexico has achieved a number of agreements and mechanisms to ensure better treatment of our
countrymen abroad, the issue of migration. especially in the United States. needs a new focus over the long term to permit the
movement and residence of Mexican nationa s to be safe. comforlable, legal and orderly, and the attitude of police persecution of this
phenomenon must be abandoned and it must be perceived as a labor and social phenomenon."

ln otherwords, nothing is illegal and we aTe not a nation of larvs any more, only markets.
ln a television interview in 2000, Mexico s Presrdent Vincente Fox made his country s intentions clear concerning the balance
of power in the Western Hemisphere:
"l'm talking about a community of North America. an integrated agreement of Canada, the United States, and Mexico in the long term,
20.30, 40 years from now. And this means that some of the steps we can take are, for instance, to agree that in five years we wtll
make this convergence on economic variables. That may mean in 10 years we can open up that border when we have reduced the

gap in salaries and income."

ln other words, his stated longterm goal is the abolition of the border betvveen the US and Mexico. This is a polite way of saying an

On the surface, Mexico s globalist vision for economic unity seems innocent. but


s likely to create a very dangerous situation

for America.

Unlike our nation of mixed nationalities with various loyalties, Mexicans are extremely nationalistic, and they usually side with their
homeland first on all issues. Considering that Hispanics are now the largest minority group in America at 12.6 percent. and Mexicans
make up half of that population. the N,4exican government is well on its way to wielding significant influence over U.S. policy by relying
on the loyalties of their 18 million dual citizens.

Another disturbing section of Mexico s National Plan concerns the government s effort to set up illegal immigrants with special
identification cards. allowing them to open bank accounts and acquire driver s licenses anywhere in the United States. Basically,
any l\,1exican illegal alien can walk into the nearest I\,4exican consulate with &#036;29 and walk out with a "consulate card". These
cards are officially recognized in Mexico allowing illegal immigrants to operate on both sides of the border. Although the cards have
been available for many years, they have not been officially recognized in America as proper identification until recently.

|n2001, the reliably-ultraliberal San Francisco combined city and county government unanimously passed a resolution to acceptthe
consulate card as official personal identiflcation. Since that flrst resolution. law enforcement agencies and municipalities throughout
California and other parts of the United States, have also gone on to make exceptions for illegal Mexicans by accepting the cards. This
is the first step toward making Mexican border jumpers legal by giving them blanket amnesty, something Vincente Fox has openly

called for during immigration talks with the United States.

With a sagging economy and many unrealized campaign promises, Mexico s leader is fighting for his political life inside what is
essentially a third world country. Now. with his old friend and "Border Buddy" President Bush firmly in tow. Vincente Fox is pushing for

the eventual abolishment of the US-Mexico border. Such easing of border restrictions would serve as a release valve for the most
desperate unemployed Mexicans, thus relieving Mexico s financial obligation to support


poorest citizens. Moreover, free

movement across the borderwould allow Mexican workers to earn their money in the U.S. and spend it back in Mexico.

Just as their national plan dictates. the Fox administration is also encouraging Mexican immigrants to officially participate in Mexican
politics from within the United States. ln 2001. Mexico passed a law allowing dual citizenship for any Mexican national living abroad,
Iegal or otherwise. ln addition. Fox visited California several times this year to campaign for stronger absentee ballot turnouts on behalf
of all the Mexican nationals living in the United States. Their dual citizenship law is a ma.jor weapon in Mexico s battle for a piece
of the American politicai pie. but


s only part of an infiltration campaign that started many years ago.

During the past fifty years, Mexico s dual loyalists have entered every facet of American society, including many public offices now
held by the sons and daughters of Mexicans who original y entered the United States illegally. just io be redeemed by past amnesty
programs. For decades they have slowly but relentlessly been taking control of local and state governments throughout the American
Southwest. Although these Mexican-Americans were born and raised in the United States, many of thern openly put their loyalty to
Mexico before their loyalty to America, What other ethnic group in America would we tolerate this from? (When some
German-Americans flirted with Hitler in their Bund organrzation in the
they are


30 s, this so shamed their reputation as an ethnic group that

despite being the largest ethnic group in America also one of the most silent in terms of explicit ethnic self-expres

Today, the l\,4exican loyalists have become a dominating force in American society, influencing the culture, the language



importantly, the political process. Thanks to Mexican-American lobbying efforts, California state representatives now officially
recognize illegal aliens as "undocumented workers" treating them with a laundry list of special aid programs including free college

tuition. Repeat: there are native Americans who can t afford to go to college. and we are spending taxpayer money to send
criminal migrants. ln Texas, the state legislature recently conducted an entire legislative session in Spanish, and the story barely made
the "8. Block" of local newscasts.

Furthermore. the 2000 presidential campaign proved just how important the Hispanic vote is to politicians on the national front. From
day one of the campaign, then Texas Governor, George W. Bush, dragged his half Hispanic nephew, George P. Bush to every media
event that might garner a sizable Hispanic audience. The plan worked so well that today George W. Bush is described in many Latin
American circles as "America s first Hispanic president" a strange title for a guy who once referred to Mexico s national
language as "l\,4exican" instead of Spanish.

lndeed. Bush s relationship with Mexico and Vincente Fox goes back long before his bid for the presidency. The two were
Governors at the same time, and they met regularly over the years concerning various issues including border security, energy
production, and trade policy. Then during Bush s flrst year as president, he and Fox met fourtimes to discuss US - Mexican
relations. ln the fall of 2001. Bush publicly mentioned the possibility of a new amnesty program for Mexican illegals, but things cooled
dramatically after the 911 attacks. Today however. Bush and Fox are back on the fast track to negotiating [\,4exico s plans for
economic and polirical expansion.

After the latest meeting of the US-Mexico Binational Commission (BNC) on November 26, the U.S. State Department conflrmed that
cabinet members from both sides signed a number of important agreements. One agreement that stands out is the "Bilateral lncome
Tax Treaty" that amends an existing bilateral income tax treaty between the two naiions. thus allowing significant reductions in taxes
on dividends. which offlcials say "will furlher facilitate cross-border trade and investment." lf fully ratified by both nations, this treaty will
allow major corporations to invest in erther country without being taxed at home on profits earned from across the border, thus merging
our economies one step beyond NAFTA.

There is no doubt the Latinization of America is well underway. and Mexico is slyly laying the groundwork that could eventually destroy
the security of our southern border. Furthermore,


s no big secret that many Mexicans dream of reclaiming the land lost to

America as a result of the Mexican-American War. Ever since that agreementtook effect in 1845. numerous Mexican government
offlcials have openly called for "Reconquista," a political plan to recover the land they believe was unjustly stolen by the American
government. Although Mexico has never officially encouraged the Reconquista movement. they have also never discouraged Mexican
citizens (on and off American soil) from proclaiming its inevitability.

Frankly. the official plan of Mexico is closer to a plan of colonization than it is to a plan of development. Just as their national plan
clearly dictates. the Mexican government is preparing for an attack on America -- an attack perpetrated through ideology and
assimilation rather than with bullets and blood. The self-hating political correctness of mainstream Americans, combined with their
history-blind confldence that the United States is a nation invulnerable to territorial loss. continues to aid and abet this aggression.

XLVlllWorld Day of Peace 2015. No longer slaves, but brothers and sisters I Francis





1 JANUARY 2015


the beginning of this New Year, which we welcome as God's gracious gift
to all humanity, I offer heartfelt wishes of peace to every man and woman, to
all the world's peoples and nations, to heads of state and government, and to
religious leaders. In doing so, I pray for an end to wars, conflicts and the great
suffering caused by human agency, by epidemics past and present, and by the
devastation wrought by natural disasters. I pray especially that, on the basis of
our common calling to cooperate with God and all people of good will for the
advancement of harmony and peace in the world, we may resist the temptation
to act in a manner unwofthy of our humanity.
1. At

In my Message for Peace last year, I spoke of "the desire for a full life... which
includes a longing for fraternity which draws us to fellowship with others and
enables us to see them not as enemies or rivals, but as brothers and sisters to
be accepted and embraced".[1] Since we are by nature relational beings, meant
to find fulfilment through interpersonal relationships inspired by justice and love,
it is fundamental for our human development that our dignity, freedom and
autonomy be acknowledged and respected. Tragically, the growing scourge of
man's exploitation by man gravely damages the life of communion and our
calling to forge interpersonal relations marked by respect, justice and love. This
abominable phenomenon, which leads to contempt for the fundamental rights of
others and to the suppression of their freedom and dignity, takes many forms. I
would like briefly to consider these, so that, in the light of God's word, we can
consider all men and women "no longer slaves, but brothers and sisters".
Listening to God's plan for humanity
2, The theme I have chosen for this year's message is drawn from Saint Paul's
letter to Philemon, in which the Apostle asks his co-worker to welcome
Onesimus, formerly Philemon's slave, now a Christian and, therefore, according
to Paul, worthy of being considered a brother, The Apostle of the Gentiles

writes: "Perhaps this is why he was pated from you for a while, that you might
have him back for ever, no longer as a slave but more than a slave, as a



pace-20'15. htm



XLVlll World Day of Peace 2015. No longer slaves, but brothers and sisters I Francis

beloved brother" (w. 15-16), Onesimus became Philemon's brother when he

became a Christian. Conversion to Christ, the beginning of a life lived Christian
discipleship, thus constitutes a new birth (cf. 2 Cor 5tL7; t Pet 1:3) which
generates fraternity as the fundamental bond of family life and the basis of life
in society.

In the Book of Genesis (cf .I:27-28), we read that God made man male and
female, and blessed them so that they could increase and multiply. He made
Adam and Eve parents who, in response to God's command to be fruitful and
multiply, brought about the first fraternity, that of Cain and Abel. Cain and Abel
were brothers because they came forth from the same womb. Consequently
they had the same origin, nature and dignity as their parents, who were created
in the image and likeness of God.
But fraternity also embraces variety and differences between brothers and
sisters, even though they are linked by birth and are of the same nature and
dignity. As brothers and sisters, therefore, all people are in relation with others,
from whom they differ, but with whom they share the same origin, nature and
dignity. In this way, fraternity constitutes the network of relations essential for
the building of the human fami[ created by God.
Tragically, between the first creation recounted in the Book of Genesis and the
new birth in Christ whereby believers become brothers and sisters of the "firstborn among many brethren" (Rom B:29), there is the negative reality of sin,
which often disrupts human fraternity and constantly disfigures the beauty and
nobility of our being brothers and sisters in the one human family. It was not
only that Cain could not stand Abel; he killed him out of envy and, in so doing,
committed the first fratricide. "Cain's murder of Abel bears tragic witness to his
radical rejection of their vocation to be brothers. Their story (cf' Gen 4:1-16)
brings out the difficult task to which all men and women are called, to live as
one, each taking care of the other".[2]

This was also the case with Noah and his children (cf. Gen 9:L8-27). Ham's
disrespect for his father Noah drove Noah to curse his insolent son and to bless
the others, those who honoured him, This created an inequality between
brothers born of the same womb.

In the account of the origins of the human fami[, the sin of estrangement from
God, from the father figure and from the brother, becomes an expression of the
refusal of communion. It gives rise to a culture of enslavement (cf. Gen 9:2527), with all its consequences extending from generation to generation:
rejection of others, their mistreatment, violations of their dignity and
fundamental rights, and institutionalized inequality. Hence, the need for constant
conversion to the Covenant, fulfilled by Jesus'sacrifice on the crossr in the
confidence that "where sin increased, grace abounded all the more... through
Jesus Christ" (Rom 5:20-2L). Christ, the beloved Son (cf. Mt 3:17), came to


XLVlll World Day of Peace 2015: No longer slaves, but brothers and sisters I Francis

reveal the Father's love for humanity. Whoever hears the Gospel and responds
to the call to conversion becomes Jesus"'brother, sister and mother" (Mt
12:50), and thus an adopted son of his Father (cf. Eph 1:5).
One does not become a Christian, a child of the Father and

a brother or sister
in Christ, as the result of an authoritative divine decree, without the exercise of
personal freedom: in a word, without being freely conveted to Christ. Becoming
a child of God is necessarily linked to conversion: "Repent, and be baptized,
every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins;
and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38). All those who
responded in faith and with their lives to Peter's preaching entered into the
fraternity of the first Christian community (cf. 1 Pet 2:17; Acts 1:15-16, 6:3,
15:23): Jews and Greeks, slaves and free (cf. l Cor t2:73; Gal 3:28). Differing
origins and social status did not diminish anyone's dignity or exclude anyone
from belonging to the People of God. The Christian community is thus a place of
communion lived in the love shared among brothers and sisters (cf. Rom 12:70;
1 Thess 4:9; Heb 13:1; 1 Pet 7:22;2 Pet 1:7).
All of this shows how the Good News of Jesus Christ, in whom God makes "all
things new" (Rev 21:5),[3] is also capable of redeeming human relationships,
including those between slaves and masters, by shedding light on what both
have in common: adoptive sonship and the bond of brotherhood in Christ. Jesus
himself said to his disciples: "No longer do I call you servants, for the seruant
does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all
that I have heard from my Father I have made known to yorJ" (Jn 15:15).

The many faces of slavery yesterday and today

3. From time immemorial, different societies have known the phenomenon of
man's subjugation by man. There have been periods of human history in which
the institution of slavery was generally accepted and regulated by law. This
legislation dictated who was born free and who was born into slavery as well
as the conditions whereby a freeborn person could lose his or her freedom or
regain it. In other words, the law itself admitted that some people were able or
required to be considered the propefi of other people, at their free disposition.
A slave could be bought and sold, given away or acquired, as if he or she were
a commercial product.
Today, as the result of a growth in our awareness, slavery, seen as a crime
against humanity,[4] has been formally abolished throughout the world. The
right of each person not to be kept in a state of slavery or servitude has been
recognized in international law as inviolable.
Yet, even though the international community has adopted numerous
agreements aimed at ending slavery in all its forms, and has launched various
strategies to combat this phenomenon, millions of people today - children,

conditions akin to slavery.

are deprived of freedom and are forced to live in

I think of the many men and women labourers, including minors, subjugated in
different sectors, whether formally or informally, in domestic or agricultural
workplaces, or in the manufacturing or mining industry; whether in countries
where Iabour regulations fail to comply with international norms and minimum
standards, or, equally illegally, in countries which lack legal protection for
I think also of the living conditions of many migrants who, in their dramatic
odyssey, experience hunger, are deprived of freedom, robbed of their
possessions, or undergo physical and sexual abuse. In a paticular way, I think
of those among them who, upon arriving at their destination after a gruelling
journey marked by fear and insecurity, are detained in at times inhumane
conditions. I think of those among them, who for different social, political and
economic reasons, are forced to live clandestinely. My thoughts also turn to
those who, in order to remain within the law, agree to disgraceful living and
working conditions, especially in those cases where the laws of a nation create
or permit a structural dependency of migrant workers on their employers, as, for
example, when the legality of their residency is made dependent on their labour
contract. Yes, I am thinking of "slave labour".
I think also of persons forced into prostitution, many of whom are minors, as
well as male and female sex slaves. I think of women forced into marriage,
those sold for arranged marriages and those bequeathed to relatives of their
deceased husbands, without any right to give or withhold their consent.
Nor can I fail to think of all those persons, minors and adults alike, who are
made objects of trafficking for the sale of organs, for recruitment as soldiers,
for begging, for illegal activities such as the production and sale of narcotics, or
for disguised forms of cross-border adoption.

I think of all those kidnapped and held captive by terrorist groups/

subjected to their purposes as combatants, or, above all in the case of young
girls and women, to be used as sex slaves. Many of these disappear, while
others are sold several times over, toftured, mutilated or killed.

Some deeper causes of slavery

4, Today, as in the past, slavery is rooted in a notion of the human person

which allows him or her to be treated as an object. Whenever sin corrupts the
human heart and distances us from our Creator and our neighbours, the latter
are no longer regarded as beings of equal dignity, as brothers or sisters sharing
a common humanity, but rather as objects, Whether by coercion or deception,
or by physical or psychological duress, human persons created in the image and

https://w2.vatican valcontenUfrancesco/en/m essages/peace/documentsipapa-fran




XLVlll World Day of Peace 2015: No longer slaves, but brothers and sisters I Francis

likeness of God are deprived of their freedom, sold and reduced

propety of others. They are treated as means to an end,

to being the

Alongside this deeper cause - the rejection of another person's humanity

there are other causes which help to explain contemporary forms of slavery.
Among these, I think in the first place of povefi, underdevelopment and
exclusion/ especially when combined with a lack of access to education or
scarce, even non-existent, employment oppotunities. Not infrequently, the
victims of human trafficking and slavery are people who look for a way out of a
situation of extreme poverty; taken in by false promises of employment, they
often end up in the hands of criminal networks which organize human
trafficking. These network are skilled in using modern means of communication
as a way of luring young men and women in various parts of the world.
Another cause of slavery is corruption on the paft of people willing to do
anything for financial gain. Slave labour and human trafficking often require the
complicity of intermediaries, be they law enforcement personnel, state officials,
or civil and military institutions. "This occurs when money, and not the human
person/ is at the centre of an economic system, Yes, the person/ made in the
image of God and charged with dominion over all creation, must be at the
centre of every social or economic system. When the person is replaced by
mammon, a subversion of values occurs".[5]

Futher causes of slavery include armed conflicts, violence, criminal activity and
terrorism. Many people are kidnapped in order to be sold, enlisted as
combatants, or sexually exploited, while others are forced to emigrate, leaving
everything behind: their country home, property, and even members of their
family. They are driven to seek an alternative to these terrible conditions even
at the risk of their personal dignity and their very lives; they risk being drawn
into that vicious circle which makes them prey to misery, corruption and their
baneful consequences.
A shared commitment to ending slavery
5. Often, when considering the reality of human trafficking, illegal trafficking of
migrants and other acknowledged or unacknowledged forms of slavery, one has
the impression that they occur within a context of general indifference.
Sadly, this is largely true. Yet I would like to mention the enormous and often
silent efforts which have been made for many years by religious congregations,
especially women's congregations, to provide suppoft to victims. These
institutes work in very difficult situations, dominated at times by violence, as
they work to break the invisible chains binding victims to traffickers and
exploiters. Those chains are made up of a series of link, each composed of
clever psychological ploys which make the victims dependent on their exploiters.
This is accomplished by blackmail and threats made against them and their










Cfl4A hlml


XLVlllWorld Day of Peace 2015: No longer slaves, but brothers and sisters I Francis

Ioved ones, but also by concrete acts such as the confiscation of their identity
documents and physical violence. The activity of religious congregations is

carried out in three main areas: in offering assistance to victims, in working for
their psychological and educational rehabilitation, and in effots to reintegrate
them into the society where they live or from which they have come.

This immense tasl! which calls for courage, patience and perseverance,
deseryes the appreciation of the whole Church and society. Yet, of itself, it is
not sufficient to end the scourge of the exploitation of human persons, There is
also need for a threefold commitment on the institutional level: to prevention, to
victim protection and to the legal prosecution of perpetrators. Moreover, since
criminal organizations employ global network to achieve their goals, efforts to
eliminate this phenomenon also demand a common and, indeed, a global effort
on the part of various sectors of society.
States must ensure that their own legislation truly respects the dignity of the
human person in the areas of migration, employment, adoption, the movement
of businesses offshore and the sale of items produced by slave labour. There is
a need for just laws which are centred on the human person, uphold
fundamental rights and restore those rights when they have been violated. Such
laws should also provide for the rehabilitation of victims, ensure their personal
safety, and include effective means of enforcement which leave no room for
corruption or impunity. The role of women in society must also be recognized,
not least through initiatives in the sectors of culture and social communications.
Intergovernmental organizations, in keeping with the principle of subsidiarity, are
called to coordinate initiatives for combating the transnational networks of
organized crime which oversee the trafficking of persons and the illegal
trafficking of migrants. Cooperation is clearly needed at a number of levels,
involving national and international institutions, agencies of civil society and the
world of finance.

Businesses[6] have a duty to ensure dignified working conditions and adequate

salaries for their employees, but they must also be vigilant that forms of
subjugation or human trafficking do not find their way into the distribution chain.
Together with the social responsibility of businesses, there is also the social
responsibility of consumers. Every person ought to have the awareness that
"purchasing is always a moral - and not simply an economic - act".[7]
Organizations in civil society, for their paft, have the task of awakening
consciences and promoting whatever steps are necessary for combating and
uprooting the culture of enslavement.

In recent years, the Holy See, attentive to the pain of the victims of trafficking
and the voice of the religious congregations which assist them on their path to
freedom, has increased its appeals to the international community for


XLVlll World Day of Peace 2015: No longer slaves, but brothers and sisters I Francis

cooperation and collaboration between different agencies in putting an end to

this scourge.[8] Meetings have also been organized to draw atLention to the
phenomenon of human trafficking and to facilitate cooperation between various
agenciesr including expets from the universities and international organizations,
police forces from migrants'countries of origin, transit, or destination, and
representatives of ecclesial groups which work with victims. It is my hope that
these effots will continue to expand in years to come.
Globalizing fraternity, not slavery or indifference

6. In her "proclamation of the truth of Christ's love in society",[9] the Church

constantly engages in charitable activities inspired by the truth of the human
person. She is charged with showing to all the path to conversion, which
enables us to change the way we see our neighbours, to recognize in every
other person a brother or sister in our human family, and to acknowledge his or
her intrinsic dignity in truth and freedom. This can be clearly seen from the story
of Josephine Bakhita, the saint originally from the Dafur region in Sudan who
was kidnapped by slave-traffickers and sold to brutal masters when she was
nine years old, Subsequently - as a result of painful experiences - she became
a "free daughter of God" thanks to her faith, lived in religious consecration and
in seruice to others, especially the most lowly and helpless. This saint, who lived
at the turn of the twentieth century, is even today an exemplary witness of
hopef10] for the many victims of slavery; she can suppoft the efforts of all
those committed to fighting against this "open wound on the body of
contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ". [11]

In the light of all this, I invite everyone/ in accordance with his or her specific
role and responsibilities, to practice acts of fraternity towards those kept in a
state of enslavement. Let us ask ourselves, as individuals and as communities,
whether we feel challenged when, in our daily lives, we meet or deal with
persons who could be victims of human trafficking, or when we are tempted to
select items which may well have been produced by exploiting others. Some of
us, out of indifference/ or financial reasons, or because we are caught up in our
daily concerns, close our eyes to this, Others, however, decide to do something
about it, to join civic associations or to practice small, everyday gestures which have so much merit! - such as offering a kind word, a greeting or a
smile. These cost us nothing but they can offer hope, open doors, and change
the life of another person who lives clandestinely; they can also change our own
lives with respect to this reality.
We ought to recognize that we are facing a global phenomenon which exceeds
the competence of any one community or country. In order to eliminate it, we
need a mobilization comparable in size to that of the phenomenon itself. For
this reason I urgently appeal to all men and women of good will, and all those
near or far, including the highest levels of civil institutions, who witness the

Scourge of contemporary Slavery, not

to become accomplices to this evil, not to

turn away from the sufferings of our brothers and Sisters, our fellow human
beings, who are deprived of their freedom and dignity. Instead, may we have
the iourage to touch the suffering flesh of Ch6st,f12] revealed in the faces of
those countless persons whom he calls "the least of these my brethren"
We know that God will ask each of us: What did you do for your brother? (cf'
lives of
Gen 4:9-10). The globalization of indifference, which today burdens the
so many of our brothers and sisters, requires all of us to forge a new worldwide
solidarity and fraternity capable of giving them new hope and helping them to
advance with courage amid the problems of our time and the new horizons
which they disclose and which God places in our hands'

..Through the knowledge of this hope she was 'redeemed" no longer a
