Empowerment Mondays at the Royal Courts of Justice in London are powerful opportunities for victims to unite and dare to ‘come out’ and ‘speak out’.
DON’T ADOPT MY SON
Homeless in the US whilst he is kept for adoption –
as published by John Hemming– the only MP
who stands up for Justice for Families
Melissa’s story is typical for what is unique in the UK: child snatching aka state kidnapping, especially foreigners, sanctioned by courts, parents gagged from speaking out under threat of imprisonment, mainstream media not reporting the truth and children screaming to be heard. Parents are punished without having committed any crime. Forced adoptions take place without their consent.
Deported, imprisoned and beaten for being a parent and Social workers damn us both ways are Christopher Booker’s articles about Melissa Laird in The Telegraph. As McKenzie Friends (lay legal advisors) we visited her in HMP Holloway for nearly two years. We reported: Five mothers on hunger strike which resulted in a gagging order and two journalists being banned from Holloway. We published She wins in Court, but gets beaten up in Prison. One month later, the police interviewed her but no-one got charged.

Empowerment Mondays were started on 16 September and brought the traffic in Central London to a halt as an action – of lawful and peaceful protest – by the Campaign for Truth and Justice.
Empty Pushchair Horror is now not only a London event next Monday but parents and grandparents in many other places are joining in: search on Facebook for Empty Pushchair Horror!
You’ll find Blackburn, Bolton, Bristol, Grantham, Leeds, Manchester, Wakefield, Teeside and Belfast!
And you’ll find this article: East Lancashire couple leads ‘pushchair protest’
Make your own event happen outside your Local Council or Court! Unite with other victims! Mutual encouragement and empowerment is half the battle! For it’s a spiritual battle we’re fighting. Between the good guys and the bad guys also known as good and evil…

How do you compare injustice, fraud, failures of ‘the system’ and explain the width of the gap between the Rule of Law (and correctness) and the Rule of Money (and corruption)?
Victims Unite started in August 2010 by publishing individual cases that were begun on Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694. Since then I
- accompanied some 50 general and another 50 or so cases in family courts
- posted 474 articles
- and 815 followers are reading regularly about ‘us’, the victims turning into starfighters, campaigners, online activists and McKenzie Friends and ‘them’, the ‘public service’ organisations ranging from police, prison, courts, the House of Commons and House of Lords to the Government in Downing Street.
Today, the 250,000 mark of visitors will be passed. And I am sorry to say that the only thing that has improved is my ability to ‘see through’ what’s happening more and more:
- public officials commit white collar crimes
- they deny and lie
- they cover each other
- they commit more crimes to cover up.
No matter which ‘case’ comes before courts, no matter which story I try to publish, no matter who tries to get justice and compensation, it’s never a level playing field, for there is always one individual that is being victimised by many officials who are ‘just doing their job’. More

This 55-page report was sent by Jeff Lampert of Help4LiPs.
Constituted by the Master of the Rolls, the Working Group was formed in December 2012 following the expected rise in the number of litigants in person (LiPs) after the Legal Aid reforms in April 2013.
The contents covers:
- Overview and executive summary
- Issues that arise when dealing with LiPs
- Training and guidance for the judiciary
- The rules
- McKenzie Friends and other lay assistants
- Vexatious litigants
- Conclusions and summary of recommendations
As always in these kinds of documents, the intentions are good and honourable:-
- Access to justice is the constitutional right of every citizen.
- The importance of a positive approach to litigants in person.
The question is: how will this ‘positive approach’ be implemented?
- It’s like with the Law. It doesn’t need changing. It just needs to be followed! More

The Secrecy of Family Courts links to the Secret Prisoners who have been of interest to John Hemming MP for a long time.
But as our civil rights are being diminished more and more, we need to learn yet more to stand our ground and know that we are not alone.
By connecting with other victims, we become ‘starfighters’ and campaigners, McKenzie Friends, online activists and Public Interest Advocates.
On July 2nd we have the opportunity to meet in the House of Commons again – in Committee Room 14 - from 10 to 12am – and network in the Jubilee Cafe afterwards.

Given the ‘war on terror’ [which is a 'propaganda induced collective hallucination'] for the sake of ‘national security’, you may find these 50 principles important. Since ‘disclosure’ is nearly ALWAYS a major issue in virtually all court cases I have come across, I do find it all rather intriguing in our ‘interesting times’. Technology makes everything more transparent and accessible. ‘Access’, ‘passwords’ and ‘keys’ count more than words. But I guess it’s better to have people think, talk and write about these issues than NOT! The 22 partner organisations are listed at the end, with links!
At the same time, I am asking myself whether these principles might become applicable in the context of child snatching, where the secrecy of the family courts hides everything – for the sake of the ‘interest of the child’, supposedly. But I guess #childsnatchuk is not a question of ‘national security’… ‘Thinking in silos’… However, whistleblowers are a new kind of ‘victims turned starfighters’, just as I have come across ‘innovation victims’ on this alliance and resistance page. We must stay tuned on many fronts, methinks!
These Principles were developed in order to provide guidance to those engaged in drafting, revising, or implementing laws or provisions relating to the state’s authority to withhold information on national security grounds or to punish the disclosure of such information.
They are based on international (including regional) and national law, standards, good practices, and the writings of experts.
They address national security—rather than all grounds for withholding information. All other public grounds for restricting access should at least meet these standards.
These Principles were drafted by 22 organizations and academic centres (listed in the Annex) in consultation with more than 500 experts from more than 70 countries at 14 meetings held around the world, facilitated by the Open Society Justice Initiative, and in consultation with the four special rapporteurs on freedom of expression and/or media freedom and the special rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights:
the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression,
the UN Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights,
the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Access to Information,
the Organization of American States (OAS) Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression, and
the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Representative on Freedom of the Media. More
