Petition update

@Europarl_en Join Patterns: #ChildSnatching in #UK and #EU Countries - on Agenda April 27 #EPlenary

Association of McKenzie Friends

Apr 21, 2016 — Dear Supporters,

We spent Tuesday in Brussels, on the occasion of the Petitions Committee meeting with 'child snatching' on the agenda again:

For the first time, we produced our own videos, which are on

And here is a snappy summary for you:

What’s the Problem?
1. UK
o 2013: Petition to UK Parliament: Children Placed in Foster Care:
o 2015: BBC News: Thousands of Children Forcibly taken into Care:
o Wikipedia: Forced adoption in the United Kingdom:
o Ian Josephs, former Local Councillor in Kent, law degree from Oxford: Forced Adoption – Punishment without Crime: leading to
o Former MP John Hemming, Chairman of Justice for Families:
o Christopher Booker, weekly columnist, The Telegraph:
MEPs must investigate this child snatching scandal:

2. EU
o 2014: Petition to EU Parliament: Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent – currently 5,700 signatures
o 2015: Council of Europe Report: When is it ok to Remove a Child from its birth parents?

3. UN
o UN Report: “Hundreds of children have been abducted from their families in Africa and trafficked to the UK, especially London. Many are raped and sexually abused .”
o Daily Mail: How London became the child abuse capital of the world: Trafficked here by gangs to pimps, paedophiles and murderers booming trade in ‘lost’ children that shames us all.

How many children?
1. Channel IV: 15,000 Kids and Counting - one child every 20 minutes:
2. Trend upwards according to these Government statistics: Children looked after in England including adoption: 2015-15.

Which institutions?
1. The Telegraph: Most sex abuse cases go unsolved as Police fail to investigate, says judge:
2. Recommendation to National Inquiry into Children in Foster Care by the Children’s Commissioner: “There is a need for thorough consideration of satanist ritual abuse of children, with a review of court, police and legal procedures.”

What patterns?
• Children are
o violently removed from their parents screaming to be heard ;
o foreigners tend to be targeted – in UK, Netherlands, Sweden;

Here's the story of Nancy Schouten whose daughters were taken in Sweden. Her petition was closed, as she had not managed to be there in time.

• Parents are
o punished without having committed any crimes;
o Hansard in 2006: 200 parents a year imprisoned by secret family courts:

• Professionals are
o Paid to perpetuate the violation of parents’ and children’s rights;
o Solicitors and barristers are ‘professional losers’, not working in the interest of the parents;
o Psychological ‘experts’ have been discredited by this academic study:

• Local Councils
o Social Services ‘spot’ the vulnerable families;
o Schools, Hospitals, GP Practices are ‘honey traps’;
o Police use ‘Police Protection Order’ to take the children;

• Secret Family Courts and the Court of Protection
o are used to legitimise institutional corruption and wrong-doings:

• A 12-page Dossier of Evidence supports our petition:

o Its title was changed to the one used in EU documents, including the Plenary Debate on 27 April 2016:

And finally, this is the report by eight MEPs after their Fact Finding Mission to London on 05 / 06 November 2015:

Happy Clicking, Reading and Waking Up to a reality we wish we didn't have to show you... But you may have felt enough pain to know it in your heart anyway...

Take Heart despite and against all the Odds!
