As McKenzie Friends and online activists, we hope that
- child snatching will STOP
- forced adoptions will be STOPPED and made reversible
- the secrecy of family courts will be TRULY lifted, i.e. hearings are NOT held in secret.
Here, we have a new Minister with a speech full of good intentions regarding the prevention of abuse, support of survivors and even whistleblowers. Below are excerpts I consider relevant.
You can use www.WriteToThem.com and request your MP to ask the Minister questions such as:
- what will you do to prevent children from being snatched from their parents at ‘future risk of emotional abuse’?
- what will you do to get professionals to Listen to the Children, ensure EQUAL contact between parents and generally NOT favour legal teams of local Councils in family courts?
- what will you do to prevent children from being abused in ‘care’?
- what will you do to prevent children from being taken from their mothers and given to their abusive fathers, when mothers report crimes?
- what will you do to prevent children being forcibly adopted by single sex couples, thus being prevented from a normal upbringing?
- what will you do to monitor and scrutinise family court and other judges who act beyond the law without accountability?
- what is the UK Government doing about the Infringement Notice that was served by the EU Commission on 27.01.14 for having violated EU Directive 2011/92 on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography?
“This is the first time that Home Office responsibilities for
- safeguarding children and vulnerable adults from sexual violence,
- for tackling child trafficking and modern slavery,
- and for preventing violence against women and girls have been brought together under one ministerial portfolio.
This year we prioritised child sexual abuse as a national threat in the Strategic Policing Requirement, providing a clear mandate for police forces to collaborate across force boundaries, to safeguard children, to share intelligence and to share best practice.
We need to ensure that any new measures do not lead to unintended consequences, such as diverting the child protection system from the most serious cases or creating a culture that favours reporting over acting.
That is why we are also, later this year, launching a whistleblowing hotline for professionals.
That is why we are establishing a new national Centre of Expertise, to make sure we all understand what works to prevent sexual abuse in all its forms, of how best to help people who have suffered from this horrendous crime, and of how to work with the perpetrators to prevent them from reoffending in the future.”
All in all, too little too late:
- not getting to the root of institutional child snatching also known as punishment without crime
- institutionalised legitimisation of child abuse in secret family courts
- using the secrecy of family courts to cover-up criminal activities
- the systematic destruction of family life
- and the attempts to decriminalise paedophilia and presexualise children.
