The Magna Carta – “Great Charter” is an 800 year old document from Europe’s Middle Ages, yet surprisingly it still has relevance in common law today.
Sealed on the banks of the River Thames on 15 June 1215, the Magna Carta forms the foundation of our rights. Originally a treaty between King John of England and rebel Barons, it’s a document which over many centuries has shaped the exercise of power, the rights of the people, and the role of the law.
Perhaps the most famous clause in the Magna Carta is Article 61, which guarantees that when a government no longer serves the will of the people, We, the People are supreme and we have an absolute right to replace them. And if they have broken the law, we can convene a Common Law Court of the People. If they are convicted, they must pay the price for their crimes.
Magna Carta Article 61 states:
(61) SINCE WE HAVE GRANTED ALL THESE THINGS for God, for the better ordering of our kingdom, and to allay the discord that has arisen between us and our barons, and since we desire that they shall be enjoyed in their entirety, with lasting strength, for ever, we give and grant to the barons the following security:
The barons shall elect twenty-five of their number to keep, and cause to be observed with all their might, the peace and liberties granted and confirmed to them by this charter.
If we, our chief justice, our officials, or any of our servants offend in any respect against any man, or transgress any of the articles of the peace or of this security, and the offence is made known to four of the said twenty-five barons, they shall come to us – or in our absence from the kingdom to the chief justice – to declare it and claim immediate redress. If we, or in our absence abroad the chief justice, make no redress within forty days, reckoning from the day on which the offence was declared to us or to him, the four barons shall refer the matter to the rest of the twenty-five barons, who may distrain upon and assail us in every way possible, with the support of the whole community of the land, by seizing our castles, lands, possessions, or anything else saving only our own person and those of the queen and our children, until they have secured such redress as they have determined upon. Having secured the redress, they may then resume their normal obedience to us.
Any man who so desires may take an oath to obey the commands of the twenty-five barons for the achievement of these ends, and to join with them in assailing us to the utmost of his power. We give public and free permission to take this oath to any man who so desires, and at no time will we prohibit any man from taking it. Indeed, we will compel any of our subjects who are unwilling to take it to swear it at our command.
If one of the twenty-five barons dies or leaves the country, or is prevented in any other way from discharging his duties, the rest of them shall choose another baron in his place, at their discretion, who shall be duly sworn in as they were.
In the event of disagreement among the twenty-five barons on any matter referred to them for decision, the verdict of the majority present shall have the same validity as a unanimous verdict of the whole twenty-five, whether these were all present or some of those summoned were unwilling or unable to appear.
The twenty-five barons shall swear to obey all the above articles faithfully, and shall cause them to be obeyed by others to the best of their power.
We will not seek to procure from anyone, either by our own efforts or those of a third party, anything by which any part of these concessions or liberties might be revoked or diminished. Should such a thing be procured, it shall be null and void and we will at no time make use of it, either ourselves or through a third party.
By 1215, England’s King John was faced with a rebellion by the kingdom’s Barons, who were representatives and protectors of the People. After many years of unsuccessful foreign policies and heavy taxation demands, the Barons met and agreed that the kingdom could not survive if the King was allowed to continue his depravations against the people.
They summoned King John to a meeting at Runnymede where he signed, under duress, a charter of liberties known as the Magna Carta (or Great Charter) that placed him, and all future sovereigns within a rule of law.
Even though he signed under duress, he was forced to do so by the Will of the People. This established for the world to see that the People are supreme, not its servant government.
Though it was not initially successful, the document was reissued (with alterations) in 1216, 1217 and 1225, and eventually served as the foundation for the English system of common law. Shortly after King John signed it, the Pope declared the Magna Carta illegal, null and void. However, it represented then, and still does today, the will of the people. Therefore, it has stood the test of time.
Subsequent changes to the Magna Carta eviscerated the document, leaving it a mere shell by 1225, when William and Mary signed their version of the Magna Carta.
However, the original Charter is, and always will be, in force. We the people acknowledge only the original charter. Any subsequent changes to it are deemed null and void by the people.
Later generations of Englishmen would celebrate the Magna Carta as a symbol of freedom from oppression, as would the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, who in 1776 looked to the charter as a historical precedent for asserting their liberty from the English crown.
How does the Magna Carta work today?
Despite many attempts to nullify or circumvent it, the Magna Carta remains today our shield against bad government and corrupt officials.
Article 61 gives us the authority to Lawfully Rebel.
How do we lawfully rebel?
Because we the people are bound by the Magna Carta, as well as Clause 5 of our Commonwealth of Australia Constitution, we can help uphold the law in many ways as we undermine the Communist State apparatus that has been put into place by the corrupt political parties over the last 100 years. The political parties have lost any right to govern us.
Things we can do:
- We can refuse to pay tolls, taxes, rates, and fines. But we must be smart about it. We cannot just refuse. The system will go after you if you refuse. But you can challenge them on lawful grounds. This e-Book, How to Fight Fines, explains what laws you can use to fight fines, and it provides a step-by-step process you can follow. The template letters that are included in the book can be edited to suit your case, and then sent to the government organization trying to steal your money. Even if you are eventually forced to pay up or risk losing your licence, car, and even your job, you can delay them for a long time. Each delay costs them time and money. Not all challenges are successful, but don’t let that stop you. If you win, you can save yourself and your family from the attack on your rights and freedoms.
- We can challenge any attempt by a government employee to infringe on, or take away your inalienable rights. For example, you are not compelled to stop for an RBT, nor can you be forced to comply with the police demands to be breath tested. In a decision Regina v Banner (1970) VR 240 at p 249 – the Full Bench of the Northern Territory Supreme Court the court ruled: (Police officers) have no power whatever to arrest or detain a citizen for the purpose of questioning him or of facilitating their investigations. It matters not at all whether the questioning or the investigation is for the purpose of enabling them to ascertain whether he is the person guilty of a crime known to have been committed or is for the purpose of enabling them to discover whether a crime has or has not been committed. If the police do so act in purported exercise of such a power, their conduct is not only destructive of civil liberties but it is unlawful. This was confirmed again in the case, Andrew Hamilton Vs Director of Public Prosecutions – Justice Stephen Kaye – Melbourne Supreme Court ruling – 25 November 2011, and in the case ruled on by Magistrate Duncan Reynolds – Melbourne – July 2013. When stopped by the police, hand them a copy of the document you can print out from this link: Your rights and the Police. A word of advice. Always be polite but firm about protecting your rights when faced by the corporate enforcers. Remember, they are not your servants. They are employed by a private corporation registered with an ABN in the USA. In 1992, the political parties, led by the LIB/ALP cartel, registered a Corporate Government under a ‘CORPORATION REGISTERED NUMBER’ in the USA, using a corporate structure called the “Brigalow Corporation”. You can read about it here: Corporate Government ABN Numbers.
- If you are willing to face down policy enforcers’ attempts to harass you, you can refuse to pay for car registration and license. Our Constitution S.51(i) and S.92 guarantee our right to travel to trade and conduct commerce with other countries, and among the States. It does not give the Parliament any right to hinder or limit our right to travel and trade anywhere in the country. When you are in your private vehicle you are traveling. Only commercial vehicles have ‘drivers’. Our forefathers did not require a license or registration to ride their horses anywhere they traveled. Why should you give up your rights to travel anywhere in a vehicle? When you ‘register’ something with an organization you are giving all your ownership rights to them. You paid good money for your car. Why would you sign away ownership just because a political party/bureaucrat says you must?
- Lawful rebellion can be fun!
- Common Law protects our right to film or video anywhere in a public place. So even when there is a notice banning filming, you can still do so. If anyone challenges you, ask them to produce a Law authorizing them to deny you your right to film.
- Walk/Don’t walk signs are there as safety advice. If it is safe to cross the road, you are under no obligation to wait for a green walk sign. If you have never lawfully rebelled before, this is a good way to start. Even a small gesture like this will free you!
- If there is a sign saying do not walk on the grass, it is only advice, not a law. But before you do so, make sure you won’t cause the grass any damage.
- There is no law compelling you to pay tax. The ATO has already admitted this to many people. Paying tax is entirely voluntary. This article explains: Is the ATO Lawful?
- You are under no obligation to obey government “health” mandates. A mandate is not a law. It is a demand by the government that you obey them. So, you do not have to wear a mask, stay home during a lockdown, get jabbed, or even stop traveling across state borders. Read the Constitution Section 51(xxiiiA). When you know your rights no one can take them away from you unless you allow them.
- Learn what your inalienable rights are and defend them at all times. Never back down to bullying demands to give up your rights. You are born with these inalienable rights. Why would you willingly give them up? Why do we call them ‘inalienable’? Because no one can put a lien on them unless you give them permission.
- There are many other ways to Lawfully Rebel. Get creative!

Going to a Rally or March? How do you protect yourself from Police attacks?
There is safety in numbers. When you go to a rally, demonstration, or march you should always go with as many friends and colleagues as possible. Join a Common Law Assembly where you will meet many others who are tired of the Communist political party corporate dictatorships. If your assembly is not practicing self-defense maneuvers, ask your convener to do so. Be prepared!
We have employed the techniques explained in the video below when confronted by police or over-zealous public servant intimidation tactics, and it always works. They are not expecting us to be united and working together to stop their attacks on us.
The video explains some basic moves a group can use to stop aggression and even to move police in a direction that defuses the aggression. We have employed drums and whistles to coordinate the movements of our groups, making it easy for us to work together as a powerful group.
For example, during the last Queensland lockdown, we convened our common law assembly at a public park, as the hall we usually met at was barred to us. As we were finishing our meeting several carloads of police turned up to harass us. However, as our convener was negotiating with the police, the 70+ assembly members behind him united in one voice and started pointing at the police, shouting, “Go! Go! Go!” The police were so astounded by this united display that they backed off while everyone got in their cars and drove away.
We used the same technique again at a rally on the Gold Coast. Two very officious council workers turned up to try and unplug us from the public electricity point. We gathered around them and told them to Go! After a hurried consultation with their boss they scurried away and we continued our meeting with electricity powering our amplifiers.
Have you or your group succeeded in defusing police attacks on you? Leave us a message below to tell us about your successes.
Do not be afraid of these bureaucrats and policy enforcers. They operate on “assumed authority”. That is, they assume they have the authority and try to force you to obey. But we are under no obligation to do so. We, the People of the Commonwealth, are the supreme authority. They are our public servants!
