AUSTERITY CUTS, lack of Compensation for Victims and more than 5,000 uncomfortable truths in Australia

13 04 03 Uncomfortable truthsThe Slog is a very influential political blog that embraces paedophilia as well as financial issues.

The Paedofile Special: The Fat Kitten at the CICA on £95,000 a year who keeps sex abuse victims waiting for their compensation is the latest article which for me raises a few points of principle:

As far as paedophilia and child sexual abuse are concerned:

the bad news:

  • institutional perpetrators have clearly no desire / ability to accept response-ability for either the emotional trauma or the financial consequences;

  • institutionalised child snatching goes on unchallenged, while children and parents suffer and even get criminalised and imprisoned, for the secrecy of family courts ensures that nobody knows what’s going on until people are hit themselves and have very little chances of getting their children back;
  • whistleblower Brian Pead who has been exposing Lambeth Council was sentenced to 28 days of prison for ‘contempt of court’…

the good news:

A sigh of relief seemed to have gone across the UK today – thanks to this announcement by the Australian PM:

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has issued an apology to people affected by Australia’s forced adoption policy between the 1950s and 1970s.

Tens of thousands of babies of unmarried, mostly teenage mothers, were thought to have been taken by the state and given to childless married couples.

Many women said they were coerced into signing away their children.

… practices that were unethical, dishonest and in many cases illegal.

The report was based on submissions by hundreds of women.

In its way of reporting the good news, the excellent blog Researching Reform points out that Australia has always been something of a leading light! More

New South Wales Parliament apologises for Forced Adoptions

5 Comments

The article Parliament apology on forced adoptions accepted, but mothers still feel hurt is a second interesting ‘precedent’ from New South Wales (NSW). At the time, babies were taken from unmarried mothers!

In 1996, the Royal Commission into NSW Police took place which resulted in reports on corruption, reform and paedophilia.

Here, 91 MPs are recommending a Royal Commission, by having signed this Early Day Motion.

What if the UK Parliament

  1. acknowledged that forced adoption is a punishment without crime and the removal of babies at birth a violation of human rights?
  2. apologised for all wrongful adoptions and promised to re-investigate?
  3. contacted all children and invited them to “Post Adoption Resource Centres” to process their traumatic separations?
  4. compensated all parents for the grief and trauma of institutional abuse?
  5. considered re-investigating over-zealous Social Services‘ decisions of children in ‘care’?
  6. took an active interest in John Hemming MP’s Family Justice Bill that will be debated on October 26th? More
