CRY FOR HELP FOR HER KIDNAPPED CHILDREN
Last March, 2 Winnipeg children were kidnapped and removed from their
parents because Manitoba Family Services believed that the parents' White
nationalist views might cause the children harm or abuse, as might the parents'
"associations." The latter crime was that the mother had attended the White
Pride Parade on March 21 in Calgary, Alberta. It had been a peaceful event. She
had broken no law.
The victim children came to
the attention of Manitoba Family Services, when the little girl, then 7, was
reprimanded for drawing a swastika on her wrist in class. The mother was furious
that the teacher had assaulted the little girl and taken it upon herself to
remove the child's artwork, a symbol of the religion her parents believed in.
The next day, the mother helped the little girl use magic marker to re-draw the
symbol on her wrist.
The school, incredibly, called
Manitoba Family Services. When the mother came to pick her daughter up at
school, she learned that the Winnipeg police "hate squad" had been summoned and
that her child was being seized. Soon after she arrived home, her place was
raided by more than a dozen police, all entrances to her apartment buildng were
sealed off as if she were some deranged terrorist and more police cars were
parked on the street and in the parking lot outside her home. Her baby son was
wrenched from her arms.
This was more than 11 months
ago. An unconscionable series of legal adjournments and delays have followed. At
nearly the same time as the kidnapping of these children, the State of Texas
seized more than 450 children from a property belonging to the dissident
Fundamentalist Church of the Latter Day Saints. As outrageous as this state
kidnapping was, complete with armoured cars ranged against civilians, the
parents appealed and, within two months the Texas Court of Appeals returned the
youngsters to their parents.
No so in Manitoba. The cruel
state kidnapping continues. The mother's lawyer was, at first, eager to "take
this all the way to the Supreme Court." He promised to work pro bono. CAFE
raised a small retainer for him. Recently, he threatened to quit unless the
impoverished mother gives him $10,000. Recent
publicity has caused him to relent.
The mother is an industrious woman who has worked
for a dozen years as a bar tender. Yet, every new job she applies for or is
hired for seems sabotaged as mysterious phone calls inform the bar owners of her
controversial situation and she is fired. Seemingly the only ones who know of
her new employment opportunities is MFS to whom she must report her
current employment status.
Two weeks ago, the mother of the kidnapped
children met with Jayleen Schroeder, a psychiatric nurse, for an assessment
prior to further hearings. Perhaps, Miss Schroeder's assessment wasn't
sufficiently hostile. Manitoba Family Services wanted yet another assessment
[and time delay.]
"It seems," the
mother/victim [whom, of course, we cannot name] said, "MFS is
putting all its eggs in the new psychiatrist's basket.. If he comes back, on
April 20 [the next hearing date] and says I'm okay, the children will be coming
back to me."
What sort of questions is the young mother asked?
"I was asked about my bowel movements," she told CAFE incredulously.
This week, the young mother was told she had to
come back to answer another question. This was naked harassment. She had to take
two buses, spent an hour and a half travelling each way, and out of her
impoverished purse part with $4.50 on public transit. Her time and money were
spent to answer the following query which might have been posed over the
telephone. "If a person of another race gives you a wink or a nudge, how
would you respond?"
"Simple," she replied, ' the same as if a White
person had done this. I'm not interested."
Recently as part of the effort to grind this
mother into submission, she was denied further visits to her children BECAUSE
she told MFS to address further communications to her through her lawyer.
She is being punished for the effrontery of
wanting to exercize her right to have legal representation.
CAFE has supported this young mother in her
efforts to get her kidnapped children back and has helped her with publicity and
fundraising. I've informed free speech audiences across the country of this
trsavesty of police state politically correct persecution of dissidents.
