in the trenches, resistance continues to the endemic
corruption of child welfare and adoption issues.
And News of a victory!
We've been quietly lobbying and thanks to Senator Lynn Ruane and
her parliamentary team, the Irish Upper House last night defeated
the government by inserting additional safeguards into the proposed
(Forced) Adoption Bill for child welfare cases.
Here's the video of Lynn in FIREBRAND form, arguing the case for her
amendment to safeguard parents rights. The government minister's
attempted defense is actually great fun - because it is a classic case
of convoluted bureaucratic doublespeak. Which LOST the vote.
This is a briefing video we just put
out to bolster the case for reform:
It's not that easy to defeat a government bill on a topic
they would like to exploit to show how much they care. (Ahem)
Great result! One that sets us up nicely for battles ahead.
Now back to matters more esoteric...
elsewhere in this rather vast forum....
