Unified Common Law Grand Jury of Southern Africa is a long name; its short name is UZA; the “ZA” is the Universal Postal Union [UPU] code;
Now, many people say “common law” is colonial imperial common law which is CROWN of CITY OF LONDON rules; Admiralty law, the law-of-the-sea;
However, the biggest deceptions lie hidden in the definitions of words; we must always look at the context within which it is used; our definition of common law is: living; tangible; un-enacted; law-of-the-land; peoples’ law; customary law; holy scriptures; maxims; oral traditions; proverbs; sacred teachings; stories; and, so forth;
UZA serves the people at law-of-the-land;
BAR members work Banks and THE CROWN under law-of-the-sea;
We, have studied the different laws, their boundaries and limits – jurisdiction – we are now experts in subject-matter-jurisdiction; this is a subject which only a few truly comprehend; no, not even the greatest constitutional scholars;
Why? Because they were conditioned in only specific areas of law; imagine each law is a cup; legal experts are like flies in a cup; we, however, can see many cups; and, one has flies;
Post 1994 RSA:
Since 1994, was South Africa to continue on the road mapped by the 1955 Freedom Charter and the 1994 Reconstruction and Development Programme [RDP] policy framework; we were supposed to have developed community banks and community courts;
The BAR legal system was supposed to be removed and lay officials trained;
In simple language, the law-of-the-sea was supposed to go back to its 200 mile offshore limit; and, the law-of-the-land restored;
THIS IS OUR PURPOSE – Restore the law-of-the-land!!!
The two key places where nations are controlled is BANKS and COURTS; these work hand in glove to deceive and plunder nations; restore those back to the people where they rightfully belong and ONLY THEN will we know economic equality, freedom, justice, peace, prosperity, sovereignty;
Know Your Rights:
We have no more government; REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA is a privately-owned, foreign corporation FRONTING as “government” and not even an inhabitant of Southern Africa; and the Constitution is a void transaction; we, the people have abandoned the real Republic of South Africa …
RSA INC. WORKS FOR BANKS, CORPORATIONS AND BAR
SUPREME COURT RULING – NO CORPORATE JURISDICTION OVER THE NATURAL MAN
Supreme Court of the United States 1795, “Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance, is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law, agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them.” S.C.R. 1795, (3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall. 54),
If government is a legal fiction; and, supposed to be based on the will of the people; and, derives its powers from the consent of the governed; and, courts of South Africa are supposed to uphold the Bill of Rights as supreme law of the land; and, protect people’s freedoms, rights, property and happiness; and, protect the people from poverty, unstable monetary systems, corruption and fraud; and, protect the people against banksters and unlawful evictions, foreclosures and repossessions [see: https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/foreclosures/ ]
Then how can government trample rights? The theory of the government is that we have surrendered some of our rights to government in order for government to protect the rights that we have not surrendered. The fiction is that we have consented to the surrender of our rights. The reality is that our rights have been stolen from us because the government monopolises force. It is a sad and terrible fact.
Corporations and governments are legal fictions [pieces of paper] that cannot harm other people. It is people hiding behind corporations that are directly or indirectly responsible for causing harm or loss to the environment and other people.
If all people are “equal before the law” then so too are they equally accountable to we, the people before a forum, hearing or tribunal of peers as per s.34 of the Bill of Rights;
“The issue is not whether we shall do something or do nothing. The demand for ordinary everyday legal justice is so great and the moral nature of the demand is so strong that the issue has become whether we devise, maintain, and support suitable agencies able to satisfy the demand or, by our own default, force the government to take over the job, supplant us, and ultimately dominate us.” [Smith, Legal Service Offices for Persons of Moderate Means, 1949 Wis.L.Rev. 416, 418 (1949).]
Corporations are legal fictions [pieces of paper] that cannot harm other people. It is minorities of people hiding behind corporations that are directly or indirectly responsible for causing harm or loss to the environment and to other people.
Only community courts, free from legal fiction, is the remedy to lift them out from behind the corporate veil so as to hold ALL people accountable and equal before the law-of-the-land; o matter their status or title;
If all people are to be “equal before the law” then so too are ALL people equally accountable before a forum, hearing or tribunal of peers; be they Chief Justice or President. Section 34 of the Bill of Rights [the supreme law of the land] makes provision for that.
34. Access to courts – Everyone has the right to have any dispute that can be resolved by the application of law decided in a fair public hearing before a court or, where appropriate, another independent and impartial tribunal or forum.
We have hammered the CONSTITUTIONAL COURT OF SOUTH AFRICA on this matter in no less than 10 cases since 2013 and every time they have remained silent; we now know why; because RSA INC. is a federal corporation and the constitution is a federal one;
The law-of-the-land has been abandoned; and, the law-of-the-sea continues to enslave us within a cult of personality;
RESTORATIVE JUSTICE: the road to healing:
Punishment and imprisonment is for slaves under law-of-the-sea; it is foreign to customary law , the law-of-the-land which is reconciliatory; it focuses on who the victim is and that the harm ceases;
In truth, customary law is in a superior jurisdiction as it is closer to natural law;
Ask yourself, do you see animals taking revenge? Or, do they only take what is necessary?
Therefore, will community courts apply principles of restorative justice such as with the post 1994 Truth & reconciliation Commission, only with the people as judge and jury.

British Accredited Registry [BAR]:
Who or what is the BAR ? Who do they work for? What jurisdiction do they operate in?
During the middle 1600’s, the Crown of England established a formal registry in London where barristers were ordered by the Crown to be accredited. The establishment of this first International Bar Association allowed barrister-lawyers from all nations to be formally recognized and accredited by the only recognized accreditation society. From this, the acronym BAR was established denoting (informally) the British Accredited Registry, whose members became a powerful and integral force within the International Bar Association (IBA). Although this has been denied repeatedly as to its existence, the acronym BAR stood for the British barrister-lawyers who were members of the larger IBA.
When America was still a chartered group of British colonies under patent – established in what was formally named the British Crown territory of New England – the first British Accredited Registry (BAR) was established in Boston during 1761 to attempt to allow only accredited barrister-lawyers access to the British courts of New England. This was the first attempt to control who could represent defendants in the court at or within the bar in America.
Today, each corporate STATE has it’s own BAR Association that licenses government officer attorneys, NOT lawyers. In reality, the courts only allow their officer attorneys to freely enter within the bar while prohibiting those learned of the law – lawyers – to do so. They prevent advocates, lawyers, counselors, barristers and solicitors from entering through the outer bar. Only licensed BAR Attorneys are permitted to freely enter within the bar separating the people from the bench because all BAR Attorneys are officers of the court itself. Does that tell you anything? Read more about the tricky word-game used at: http://www.angelfire.com/az/sthurston/Hiding_Behind_the_BAR.html
BAR is an acronym for ‘British Accreditation Regency’ which forms individual state and provincial bars. The “bar” is literally the wooden railing which separates the spectator section of the courtroom from the front section where the judge and lawyers (those ‘admitted to the bar’) sit. Ask an attorney about the BAR oath; it specifies the 1st loyalty is to the court, the 2nd to the State.
GENERAL COUNCIL OF THE BAR OF SOUTH AFRICA – UNIFORM RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT
1.7.1 Senior Counsel are all members holding Letters Patent from H.M. The Queen or from the State President. Senior Counsel shall, unless the Bar Council otherwise directs, rank in seniority in accordance with their patents. All other counsel are Junior Counsel.
UZA comment: The BAR works for a foreign jurisdiction and does not work for the people. In fact, members abide by the law of the sea as opposed to the law of the land and have no jurisdiction over tangible objects.
Every law has it’s boundaries and level of importance called jurisdiction. All courts today using bar association and law society members in fact only abide by the law of the sea and only have jurisdiction over legal fictions such as ‘citizen’, corporation’, ‘human’, ‘person’ and the like.
However, if a natural wo/man does not consent to the subject-matter-jurisdiction of the law of the case; and or waivers their right to ‘recognition as a person’; and or declares the right to a fair trial before peers in another independent and impartial tribunal as per s. 34 then the courts of South Africa are obligated to develop the common law, customary law or other jurisdiction when invited to do so;
However, they know that if they do then their game is over…
Community courts are the remedy to piercing the corporate veil and hold accountable those causing harm or loss before a forum of equals and peers, namely ‘we, the people’. In this way can we lift people out from behind the law-of-the-sea jurisdiction, back onto the law-of-the-land jurisdiction; as opposed to what we normally do: lowering ourselves into a legal fiction jurisdiction wherein one has to deal with a divided bar that does not work for the people;
Community courts are to be free from bar interference and operate by their own general rules and procedures in jury-type hearings wherein judges are merely arbitrators and the people judge on facts heard by unanimous, enforceable rulings which also set precedent for future cases. That is what “the people shall govern” means. Full participation in all aspects of society as well as community courts “by the people, for the people, of the people”;
Government and judiciary will not do this for the people; the people must do it for themselves. This is one of our main objectives: laying the foundations for community courts.
1955 Freedom Charter & 1994 RDP Policy Framework:
From the 1952 Defiance Campaign against the apartheid laws of the previous South African regime, the 1955 Freedom Charter was born and was adopted by many people of Southern Africa. The 1994 Reconstruction and Development Programme [RDP] policy framework was established which flowed from the Charter. Both the Freedom Charter and the RDP represent the law of the land and represents the will of the people.
The RDP states:
5.2.6 Democracy for ordinary citizens must not end with formal rights and periodic one-person, one-vote elections. Without undermining the authority and responsibilities of elected representative bodies (the national assembly, provincial legislatures, local government), the democratic order we envisage must foster a wide range of institutions of participatory democracy in partnership with civil society on the basis of informed and empowered citizens (e.g. the various sectoral forums like the National Economic Forum) and facilitate direct democracy (people’s forums, referenda where appropriate, and other consultation processes).
People’s forums, referenda and other consultation processes operating in their own jurisdiction have yet to be implemented in order to be truly independent from the divided bar and in order to maintain jurisdiction. The Constitution must recognise the fundamental equality of common law and customary law.
5.3.2 …Consideration should be given to the implementation of a constitutional provision for the calling of a referendum in order to overturn unpopular laws, and to ensure that certain laws get passed.
Referendums by, for and of the people have yet to be developed in order to overturn unpopular laws.
5.7 THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE
5.7.1 The system of justice should be made accessible and affordable to all people. It must be credible and legitimate. The legal processes and institutions should be reformed by simplifying the language and procedures used in the court, recognising and regulating community and customary courts, and professionalising the Attorney-General’s office. The public defence system must be promoted and the prosecution system reformed. The pool of judicial officers should be increased through the promotion of lay officials, scrapping the divided bar and giving the right of appearance to paralegals.
The system of justice is becoming less accessible and more un-affordable as costs escalate. Court trials are not yet fair as language and procedures used in the court have yet to be simplified, the divided bar has yet to be scrapped and lay officials are yet to be promoted in order to be truly credible and legitimate.
5.13.4 Delivery or enforcement mechanisms for social and economic rights must not focus only on the Constitution, courts and judicial review, but must include agencies which have the involvement of members and organisations of civil society as means of enforcing social justice. In this regard, a revamped Human Rights Commission, with wider popular involvement, should have its mandate extended to ensure that social and economic rights are being met.
There are no community courts as yet. The only ones who can restore Southern Africa and run the South African – are Southern Africans. And that means South Africans who are operating in their birthright standing as South African State Nationals and Southern African Tribal Nations. The Republic of South Africa is a private corporation and populated by “persons” not “people”.
Government cannot restore government of, for, and by the people. We, the people have to do that for ourselves.
UZA – further explanation:
community courts, forums, hearings and tribunals of all the people, by all the people, for all the people.
“The legal profession must recognize this inevitable demand and consider methods whereby it can be satisfied. If the profession fails to provide such methods, the laity will.”
[Comment, Providing Legal Services for the Middle Class in Civil Matters: The Problem, the Duty and a Solution, 26 U.Pitt.L.Rev. 811, 811-12 (1965).] [emphasis added]
UZA is an original jurisdiction people’s court de jure1 and sovereign people’s society sui juris2 by ancient precedents, un-enacted common law, customary law, maxims and ‘old authorities’ for the protection of people’s unalienable and non-derogable living rights, freedoms and private property.
- DE JURE. Of right; legitimate; lawful; by right and just title. In this sense it is the contrary of de facto, (which see.) It may also be contrasted with de gratia, in which case it means “as a matter of right,” as de gratia means “by grace or favor.” Again it may be contrasted with de cequitate; here meaning “by law,” as the latter means “by equity.” See Government.
- SUI JURIS. Lat. Of his own right; possessing full social and civil rights; not under any legal disability, or the power of another, or guardianship. Having capacity to manage one’s own affairs; not under legal disability to act for one’s self. Story, Ag. § 2.
UZA is a superior jurisdiction people’s court at natural law and natural justice in full accordance with the original definitions, intentions, objects, purports and spirit of the original Bill of Rights. According to: section 39(3) – Interpretation of Bill of Rights: 3. The Bill of Rights does not deny the existence of any other rights or freedoms that are recognised or conferred by common law, customary law or legislation, to the extent that they are consistent with the Bill.
Additionally, in the same spirit, UZA is decreed as another independent impartial forum in accordance with: section 34. Access to courts – Everyone has the right to have any dispute that can be resolved by the application of law decided in a fair public hearing before a court or, where appropriate, another independent and impartial tribunal or forum.
What this means is that UZA is operating by the law-of-the-land jurisdiction while bar associations, law societies and their members [whose highest ranking judicial officers are oathed to HM THE QUEEN] operate under admiralty, maritime, law merchant, and or roman-dutch civil law which is in fact all law-of-the-sea and like oil and water the two jurisdictions cannot mix.
We saw the need for people’s courts by the law of the land as there is a vacuum; and, people’s rights are daily being infringed upon and threatened by the deceitful and unlawful actions of those hiding behind legal fictions such as governments and corporations.
In order to truly heal the divisions of the past, the mandates of the Freedom Charter and RDP, the will of the people, must be fulfilled;
the people shall govern – means direct democracy;
In a Republican form of government the people and their communities are sovereign;
“The words “sovereign state” are cabalistic words, not understood by the disciple of liberty, who has been instructed in our constitutional schools. It is our appropriate phrase when applied to an absolute despotism. The idea of sovereign power in the government of a republic is incompatible with the existence and foundation of civil liberty and the rights of property.” Gaines v. Buford, 31 Ky. (1 Dana) 481, 501.
Community banks are a mandate;
Community courts without the BAR are a mandate
Regular and enforceable Peoples’ Referendums are a mandate;
Every self-identifying community on the land of Southern Africa has the right to:
declare themselves sovereign;
and equal % share from the national revenue fund;
declare their territory;
administrate their own affairs;
UZA is a peoples’ court of conscience at law-of-the-land jurisdiction;
And, an active agent of change in the restoral of people sovereignty ;
And, active in developing a true Republican form of government wherein all sovereign communities self-govern.
And, makes valuable contributions to community courts; such as:
rules and procedures for courts, public hearings, tribunals, oversight committees, Truth & Reconciliation Commissions;
education of lay officials, civil service, municipalities, military, police etc.
The values of community courts express the will of the people and reflects their unique and pivotal role in the life of every self-governing community and the nation as a whole.
UZA is taking a representative administrative action on behalf of we, the people at international law in order to lawfully establish:
- Constitutionally valid People’s Courts by Public Hearing in the spirit of s34 of the Bill of Rights.
- A Truth and Reconciliation Commission into the corrupt financial system with the following aims:
- Return to prudent banking such as implementation of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1932 and 1933 and considering amendment proposals of RSA banking and finance legislation.
- Implementing remedies in the Bills of Exchange Act for full contract, settlement and closure of all outstanding debts levied against ‘natural persons’.
- Full national debt forgiveness as Iceland has done. http://truedemocracyparty.net/2012/04/iceland-forces-debt-forgiveness-total-us-media-blackout-when-debt-is-fraud-debt-forgiveness-is-the-last-and-only-remedy/
- Declaration and establishment of constitutionally valid people’s community banks and exchanges by the people, for the people, of the people.
UZA Documents of Establishment:
Our humble beginnings on the 10th of November 2013: Court of Record 01
The following documents are intended to establish procedures, not only for UZA, but also for lawful people’s courts on the land of Southern Africa:
These are living documents and will change as more people’s courts use them.
Sir William Blackstone, an authority on common law stated the following:
“However, as it is impossible for the whole race of mankind to be united in one great society, they must necessarily divide into many, and form separate states, commonwealths, and nations, entirely independent of each other, and yet liable to a mutual intercourse. Hence arises a third kind of law to regulate this mutual intercourse, called “the law of nations,” which, as none of these states will acknowledge a superiority in the other, cannot be dictated by any, but depends entirely upon the rules of natural law, or upon mutual compacts, treaties, leagues, and agreements between these several communities: in the construction also of which compacts we have no other rule to resort to, but the law of nature; being the only one to which all the communities are equally subject; and therefore the civil law(c) very justly observes, that quod naturalis ratio inter omnes homines constituit, vocatur jus gentium.” [Sir William Blackstone, Commentaries on the Law of England in Four Books, Vol. 1 INTRODUCTION: OF THE STUDY OF NATURE AND EXTENT OF THE LAWS OF ENGLAND, SECTION 1: ON THE STUDY OF THE LAW] [extract]
