Why the theme?

Movements need large numbers.

Movements need solidarity.

The research on protective mothers documents similar patterns in other countries; are there protective mothers

activists outside the U.S.? How are they faring?

Mothers suffering in other countries take comfort in the

knowledge that

someone

is working on these issues!Slide3

AUSTRIA -- UKBeth Alexander: UK Citizen married to Austrian

Beth Schlesinger, The British Mother Whose Austrian Custody Case Made UK Ministers FuriousSlide4

The British Cambridge graduate's desperate attempts to get custody of her four-year-old twins from her Austrian ex-husband Michael was described as "Kafkaesque" and a case that "defies normal understanding",

by Graham Stringer, the MP who proposed the debate.

Stringer, the MP for

Blackley

and Broughton where Beth's parents live, said he hoped the government would

recognise

the "scale of the injustice" which had occurredSlide5

They

will take you far more seriously than us mums (at

least,I hope so).

Charles Pragnell ,a fervent campaigner of many decades,used to work for the UK family courts and knows the mentality of the UK Parliament,and maybe he can write a letter/email and you can suggest what you'd like to add and approve that your name be added underneath. Us mums are gagged and also many of us fear our exes too much to do anything openly as they may harm us and harm our children or demand ban on all

contact,which

those courts do deliver to

father,as has happened in many cases of mothers fighting too much for their liking,but you know how much everything you do about this we appreciate. Please,let me know if you think the idea may be worth a try (you never know despite them ignoring us all the time) or you do not agree with it.You'd read the email (whoever writes it,maybe some of you volunteer to do that?) before it being sent. Regards,MariaFather, 30, arrested after tragic daughter, 4, found deadThe girl, who has been named locally as Alexa Wheatley, had been living with her father Carl Wheatley in Hatfield since Christmas.dailymail.co.uk

From Dr. Freda Briggs in Australia:

I

spend a great deal of time supporting mothers whose children report being sexually abused by their fathers,

usually

after separation.

What usually happens here is that the mother is accused of training the child to lie, the mother is labelled

as

delusional/mentally ill (but not by reputable psychiatrists after an authentic diagnosis), the abuser gets custody of

the

children and the mother has only occasional, supervised contact. The child is banned from having therapy.

They

are also silenced because this happens in secrecy.

Alas, the influence of US Richard Gardner prevails and although PAS is banned, parent alienation is alive and

well

(and PAS is still used in New Zealand).

We also find that police and child protection services support the fathers and the assessment process is a sham.

See the attached article. We decided to stop blaming judges but to show that they are being ill advised

by

ignorant, biased

police

.Slide6

From an anonymous mom in the UK:

I am UK mum who lost custody of her daughter to an abuser 13 year ago. All us mums in the UK are strictly

court-gagged against talking about our

cases,so

my hands are tied as to what I can and cannot say, but basically I cannot fight for justice,I cannot have a say,I cannot do anything to even try and help put an end to this most extreme form of misogyny that is sweeping the Western world like wildfire. I am originally foreign to the

UK,but

living in

Britain for nearly 1/4 of a century.Message to attendees at the BMCC XI:Dear campaigners,academics,writers,US journalists, family lawyers and judges,former child expert witnesses,NGO founders etc, who have campaigned for many years to get the horrors of the global misogynistic family courts exposed and prevent even more children from being given to their abusive fathers to live with”

We (in the UK) feel when we campaign with the

Governments,we

are almost sadistically laughed

at,

ridiculed,maybe

not

believed,just

played with

.

Many of us have campaigned incessantly for many

years,some

15-20

years

(

I am happy to say I have connected over 5 000 campaigners internationally over the last months by

sending

friends suggestions that annoyed a few as they do not like knowing more than 5-10 victims

),

but,as

you

know,we

have achieved nothing! Everything we do seems to be in

vain.In

the

UK,we

are

strictly

court-

gagged,more

than anywhere and our hands are tied by the people

who,I

feel,know

well

what

has been

happening,what

they have been doing and now just want that no one else finds out and

demands

that they are accountable.

Slide7

I especially salute all of you who have campaigned and supported us mums while having never experienced the horrors of this yourselves. You have braved fathers' rights groups'

threats,you

have invested your precious time and energy over so many years into supporting us and making it public so that more women and children do not fall into this trap and with

you,with

have felt stronger and more hopeful.But children continue to suffer and more than ever! Abusers are winning custody mor ethan ever and fathers(rarely mothers) are killing children to spite the mothers more than ever.I would just like to ask you something and you may disapprove

, which

is fine.

But,what do you think about writing one long statistical email about your knowledge of the nature of most fathers who apply for custody and their wins and you all signing with your professions/titles in the brackets or so and demanding that the issue be finally paid attention to in the wake of the murder of this little girl in Britain yesterday? Then we can forward it to the UK Parliament ministers,child/women protection agencies and charities (who know about this well ,but have ignored us for years!) etc. I believe if they finally pay attention to it and the issue gets reported on alongside this horror case,it may be a breakthrough for all internationally. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2580214/Father-30-arrested-tragic-daughter-4-dead-family-home.html
