This is the Executive Summary of a report I’ve called a ‘petition’. For I sent the 11-page text to the Petitions Secretariat and MEPs in Brussels.
I also submitted it to my constituency MP Tulip Siddiq – for her to put into the petition ‘bag’ – thus following former MP John Hemming who did so with Children Placed in Foster Care in September 2013.
I’ll obviously send it to other MPs who hopefully will make a difference. Maybe you can send it to yours? And ask your Local Council for their statistics on ‘Looked After Children’?
The Executive Summary says:
This petition requests the STOPPING of all forced removals of children from their parents as this crime against humanity emerges, not only in the UK but across Europe, not only recently, but with a rising trend since the 1990’s.
Based on official statistics from the UK, Germany and Sweden, this petition presents activities that are unacceptable in any democratic society; let alone one that claims to subscribe to the Fundamental Charter of Human Rights, the European Convention of Human Rights and the UN Convention on Child Rights.
