WHAT NEXT after our Pilgrimage to Brussels? Individual Petitions and Collective Cries for Help to the EU Commission!

Katya & Mummy. April 2012Laila Brice wants Merton Council to return her daughter. Thanks to her work with her Latvian MEP Tatjana Zdanoka, we did achieve the only outcome we could possibly hope for: an investigation by the Petitions Committee into the UK, just as it has carried out fact finding missions into Denmark and Germany already.

However, that does not get your kids back tomorrow. Hence you can take these actions for your family now:

1. Write to Catherine Day, the current Secretary General of the EU Commission:

Dear Secretary General

You will know by now that the petition Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent in the UK was presented to the Petitions Committee on 19 March 2014. It’s about the 1,000 children taken into ‘care’ every month and the 100,000 estimated children in foster ‘care’ – before 4% of them end up being adopted – generally against the will of their birth parents.

My child/ren is/are part of these shocking statistics. Please find therefore enclosed a summary of my case concerning Local Authority ABC. They have violated many Articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, as you will see instantly.

Please confirm that you will ask all relevant UK authorities to explain why they allow such crimes against children and violation of Child Rights to take place on a routine level and industrial scale. More

Even journalists and professional investigators can’t believe it!…

But I shall talk about the US mother to Sonia Poulton on the PeoplesVoiceTV today. Melissa was deported on 12 September in a wheelchair and has been homeless since, so that her only son could be adopted – courtesy of Barnet Council.

KEEP CALM and Challenge Britain: Foreign and UK Children Back for Christmas!

24 Comments

Among the women whose children are targeted for ‘care’ and forced adoption are foreigners who often get criminalised and imprisoned, such as the Nigerian Musas and American Melissa Laird.

Most of them can’t cope with the barrage of paper work on top of the bereavement of being separated from their children.

For what’s unique in the UK is institutionalised child snatching aka state kidnapping - for forced adoption or punishment without crime.

However, when I heard how this Portuguese family was deprived of its five children by Lincoln County Council, this was the opportunity to ask for all UK and foreign Children Back for Christmas!

Brave UK Kellie Cottam has already put Home for Christmas together.

Among the remarkable foreigners is Latvian Laila Brice who says DON’T ADOPT MY DAUGHTER. Thanks to her Latvian MEP, her petition to the EU Parliament is tabled for 19 March 2014. Katya & Mummy. April 2012

Thanks to her initiative, our collective petition with currently over 2,500 signatures to Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent will be presented in Brussels on that occasion, too.

DON’T ADOPT My Son! – A Leaflet for the Next Empowerment Monday

17 Comments

Stop Forced Adoptions

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[1]

Homeless in the US whilst he is kept for adoption[2]
as published by John Hemming– the only MP
who stands up for Justice for Families[3]

Melissa’s story is typical for what is unique in the UK[4]: 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[5]. Parents are punished without having committed any crime[6]. Forced adoptions[7] take place without their consent.

Deported, imprisoned and beaten for being a parent[8] and Social workers damn us both ways[9] are Christopher Booker’s articles about Melissa Laird[10] in The Telegraph. As McKenzie Friends[11] (lay legal advisors) we visited her in HMP Holloway for nearly two years. We reported: Five mothers on hunger strike[12] which resulted in a gagging order[13] and two journalists being banned from Holloway. We published She wins in Court, but gets beaten up in Prison[14]. One month later, the police interviewed her but no-one got charged.

RETURN Our Stolen Children! – What Can We Do? – Our Battle against Judges who ignore the Law

17 Comments

David Jenkins, the organiser of Stolen Children of the UK [S.C.O.T. UK] the 8-day demo outside Downing Street in July 2013 is now in HMP Swansea.

He has had 4 children taken and handed in signatures with a petition that was published in Hansard on 03 September 2013: Children Placed in Foster Care.

Dear Mr Cameron, take the Lead and Return our Stolen Children was the cover letter of our file.

David is now in prison for having named one of the Social Workers involved, even though Lord Justice Munby has made this breakthrough judgement in which he appeals to courts to adapt to the realities of the internet, particularly social media! That includes naming Social Workers!

BUT: as Christopher Booker writes in The Telegraph: Why do our judges in family courts ignore the law? – How can any sane judge decide that a child should remain in ‘care’ of a blind 80-year old widow? Is it coincidence that it’s the same judge who decided that it is up to the ‘discretion of Barnet Council’ whether there should be any contact between a 4-year-old boy and his mother? He has not seen her since December 2011 and she has been deported so that he can be adopted

It is our and Lord Justice Munby’s battle against judges who don’t obey the Law of the Land. No wonder, Belinda McKenzie writes regular Battle News for Britain’s children.

Meanwhile we handed out this leaflet at today’s Empowerment Monday:

RETURN our STOLEN CHILDREN[1]

Parents and Supporters at Empowerment Mondays[2]
and via a Petition in the House of Commons[3]

Social Services take children off their parents for all sorts of frivolous reasons, such as ‘risk of emotional harm’. They hide behind the secrecy of Family Courts[4] who sanction the wrong doing. More

TOWARDS TABLING our Abolish Forced Adoption Requests in the EU Petitions Committee

14 Comments

Stop Forced AdoptionsIt may not be worth anything, but I’d like to die knowing that I’ve tried my best. Hence I have submitted this text to Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent online to the EU Petitions Committee. More can be provided offline later.

It comprises input from ‘key players’ and expert Ian Josephs who still gets between 3 and 6 calls a day, sometimes up to 10.

This is our position:

  • the next Committee meeting is on 19 June
  • they tend to be held once a month and have LOTS of petitions to consider
  • two non-UK MEPs have promised to help get our petition tabled, if it has at least 2,000 signatures.

In November 2012, the UK, Croatia and Portugal have been the subject of human rights and family courts in this report and this resolution of the Council of Europe which says in Article 4:

Children ought to be separated from their parents only in very exceptional circumstances, subject to judicial review and in line with the requirements stemming from the European Convention on Human Rights (ETS No. 5) and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child of 1989.

They Council of Europe has produced

Hence I’ve tried my best to gain support:

Any chance of you adding your support to getting numbers up?  More

SORRY for ‘shameful’ forced adoptions and MONEY for records tracing and mental health care

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.

Here, we are publishing

we have submitted

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

Slovak Government Audit Raises Suspicions of Wrongful Adoptions

Adoption Curves

Adoption Curves (Photo credit: Nathan Laurell)

This article in Slovak News in English raises suspicions about wrongful adoptions internationally! I just find it strange that the emphasis is on adoptions rather than ‘care’.

Here, Kent on Saturday picked the topic up as Thousands of kids live in care in the aftermath of Baby P.

And I wish I knew who counts all the children who run away and go missing. And who goes to find and help them!…

Or do we have to wait until they find their birth parents via Facebook? If you search there, you’ll find quite a few groups of victims.
