Let jiji raise her daughter instead of nannies

When I gave birth to my second child everything was fine till 3 months post partum. I was tired and I was sad because I was felt like I was being controlled by my husband  (without going into to much detail about or marital relations)  I  believed i had developed mild post partum depression  8 months ago,  I sought treatment  and after 1 month of therapy I was ok (granted I had work to do with my daughter in person) when I came home my husband had hired two nannies and wouldn’t let me sleep with her her all the time, i also felt uncomfortable bc the nanny’s ONLY took care of my daughter. I had to do all the cooking, cleaning and take care of my son bc my husband would mostly be busy .... I begged and pleaded for him to get rid of the nannies who where doing MY job and he didn’t feel comfortable, yet was upset bc I wasn’t paying for them. He would let my son be with me for as long as I wanted but I could only see my daughter for no longer than 3 hours a day. It really deppended on what he wanted as he believed he had custody of the children. Because I had left for a month to help myself.  This whole time he never supported my post partum depression and I believe is using it against me,  I filed for custody and relocation yesterday and since I hired a lawyer he hasn’t let me c the kids as much as I am legally allowed. There is a big stigma on post partum depression and I believe it’s totally normal, especially when raising two under two with no emotional support from your spouse living so far away from you’re family, we r in Tokyo they are in LA. He recently revoked my jaoanese dependant visa as I was a housewife and not working, I will have to leave japan in 30 days so we are trying to expedite the case. I hope this petiton can not only help me see my daughter more as she is 10 1/2 months old and I feel guilty for missing and not being apart of her life as a baby. I gave up my job to be a mum and now my kids are being raised by two nannies while I sit at home and “twiddle my thumbs ” I hope my case can bring awareness and create less of a stigma on women going through the same thing. This petition has reached more people than I imagined and I hope more of you can speak up in the comment section about my interaction with Finn or both kids if you have seen it! Thank you guys so much

STOP enslavement and belittlement of Indigenous women

There was a website (http://www.ndngirls.com/tour2/index1.html(the website has been taken down recently but the women I am sure are still taking part in the porn and prostitution. The address may have been changed so I have no idea if it is still on the internet.  I am unsure of who to contact about getting the site taken down except American Indian Movement. Maybe they would know. The amount of money he is paying and the manner in detail in which he is describing his own actions on the site sounds more like prostitution than what an actual pornography producer would do.  If a white guy was doing it would already be taken down. Simply because this man is a minority does not make him less racist. He is not a native so he has no right to do what he has done as he is trespassing on sovereign tribal land and is putting up pornography videos of native women when he himself is not a Hollywood porn producer, actor, or a native person. Even if the man was native it would not make it okay but it would be more understandable. He has also mocked indigenous groups concerned about what he is doing by posting articles on his page as if it is all a big joke to him. Also the next time he tries to go to a reservation he should be forced to leave or arrested due to the fact that he has admitted that on this site it is actually prostitution more than pornography.    This man has already been put on alert by reservations in Winnipeg and has a lot of people watching out to make sure he doesn't come to their reservation. As a youth of the Mohawk tribe I find this highly offensive both to true native women who would never give this deviant the time of day and native people as a whole from Alaska to Argentina. This man's portrayal of our women as promiscuous, welfare leeches and drug addicts is disgusting and this site should be taken down.  Pornography as a profession is one thing but going from reservation to reservation to sexually and financially exploit native women based on a sick fetish and then have the nerve to call it NDNgirls.com when it is clearly just a racist black man going around trying to pick up on native women, and at the same time mocking native American men while fetishizing and disrespecting our people should not be allowed.   The man who runs this site is a clear racist who carries out the legacy of racism against Native Americans. Clearly this man, Shimmy has a secondary colonizer mentality much like the buffalo soldiers who helped the US army slaughter millions of indigenous. Abusing and using Indigenous women (American Indian) for profit is not right.    They are extremely sick disturbing sexual pornographic images of Indigenous women.  These people are extremely vulnerable and poor.  They have been taken advantage of and I want the pervert or perverts behind this to be stopped and imprisoned.  This is disturbing and these people deserve a fair chance at life.  They are taken advantage of and they clearly do not have a mental stable existence.  They need help and the person/people who are responsible need to be researched and shut down. By shutting down this porn these women can have a chance at doing something with their life and not be killed/raped.  Please help these people.  I am a full blood Native American and the odds have always been against us.  Those doing this porn give them no chance.       I want the possible website exploiting them shut down immediately and all of the people using and degrading these women for money and whatever else to be brought to the law's attention.   A maximum jail service for any underage female that are being sold for profit.  A full-fledged investigation of the people using these females immediately by the police, American Indian Movement and if necessary government.  A maximum punishment for all crimes committed.
