Kenya is in Independent from British rule. On the 12th December 2022 they celebrated not only in Kenya but all around the world the 59th Jamhuri Day.
“The day marks the date in 1964 when the country was formally admitted into the Commonwealth as a republic. “Jamhuri” is the Swahili word for Republic. December 12 is also the date when Kenya obtained its independence from the British Union in 1963.”
They celebrated their people and their right to self determination.
Many nations that were once colonies of the British Union empire are now free to raise their flags and manage their own affairs of state. To these people we say good luck and God bless you and your Nations. But please remember the other colonies oppressed and supressed by the British Union, Captive Nations. One of those is England. The very people that freed the black, brown and white slaves of the world are in fact captive. Yes it was England that freed the slaves once they set foot on English soil. It was the English common law judgement from the English high court through a writ of Habeas Corpus and subsequent case law – Somersett vs Steuart June 22nd 1772 that freed the slaves. In the colonies it was well known, that to be free from the British colonial laws they needed to get to England. Not Scotland, Ireland or France, and especially not Holland. It is England and the English that will set you free.
So my question to all those freed from colonialist and imperial rule (including the USA), why have you forsaken us, why have you forsaken the English men and women that set your ancestors free?
Most are told William Wilberforce was the person who stopped slavery. Whilst that is somewhat true it is deceitful. The British Union Parliament did not want to stop slavery or use positive law, it took over 100 petitions and 20 consecutive years of presenting the Bill. English common law had already outlawed it. There are many cases that were heard, one of which was in 1703 Sir John Holt with his ruling “as soon as a negro comes to England he is free; one may be a villein in England, but not a slave”
Sir John Holt was the Lord Chief Justice of England from the late seventeenth to the early eighteenth century. He was known for being a fair judge. He entered Oriel College, Oxford to study law at the age of sixteen years, but soon left; he returned to the study of law at Gray’s Inn in London, and was appointed to the bar in 1663. He became King’s sergeant and was knighted around 1685-1686. In 1688 he had a prominent role in William III gaining the throne of England, and soon after was appointed Lord Chief Justice of the King’s Bench.
Holt was famed as a supporter of civil and religious liberty. He judged that slavery could not exist in England; his statement that “as soon as a negro comes to England he is free; one may be a villein in England, but not a slave” was made around 1702 during a trial involving an escaped slave. He discouraged the conviction of people tried as witches, acquitting several in trials he presided over. Holt had a reputation for fairness, knowledge of the law, clarity of expression, and an uncompromising integrity. Unlike many English judges before him, he took pride in protecting the civil rights of English citizens and in providing fair and respectful treatment of the accused.
In the record of a trial in 1810, another judge stated:
“…Sir John Holt, whose name has always been held in reverence by English freemen; for he was a sound judge and an inflexible patriot, who manifested, on every occasion, a generous and distinguished zeal for the liberties of the people.” – The Founders’ Constitution (Philip B. Kurland and Ralph Lerner, 1986).
Time line of events and you’ll note the British Union Parliament did NOT want to free the slaves. The English however fought for the slaves.
In memory of the horrific treatment of human beings please join us in our quest to FREE England and finally free the world of all colonies. The commonwealth can exist as a voluntary organisation.
