I'm specially interested in #vinb's choices for the panel. Looks like he's trying to set up a loony christian right versus voices of self-professed righteousness 'debate'. Sinnott and and Waters can expect be to be shouted and sneered at a lot, while everybody's favourite Santa Clause, Fergus Finlay will incline his head to one side and intone with sad dog eyes about caring for children while evading all substantive questions about the ramifications for children of what he and his fellow travellers are trying to do to them. Alternatively, he will reveal just how manipulative he can be with words - watch him carefully, in my opinion, one of the most devious people on the Irish political scene.
According to Norm - The Referendum Debate is tomorrow Night.
Tonight is supposed to be about our quest for the Holy Bank Deal
http://www.politics.ie/forum/backsta...al-unique.htmlTomorrow night @ 22:00 Children‘s Referendum Debate on tv3. Will put up thread early tomorrow.
If you'd done a better job organising your "national campaign" wouldn't your masses of supporters already have bombarded tb3, rte et al with demands for your appearance? Or at least have gotten the date of the discussion right.
I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.
Seemed to be unable to post on the issue of tonights debate to Vincent Browne, so trying again:
Do not be hoodwinked into signing the rights of your children with disabilities over to the state in support of their illegal kidnapping agenda - the way that social workers try to blackmail, bully, insinuate and threaten families involving disability into extending fostering children from respite into "regular", "Full-Time" or "Permanent care" is something that needs to be raised - this referendum and the legislation published will allow the state to adopt out to foster parents all such children without consent or reason.
Many of our children are in the system for no other reason for the fact that there is no respite care available, and the HSE seems fit to use fostering services to dump our children and have them abused and neglected as the system does not understand and support their medical, therapy and social needs.
In the vast majority of cases nothing has ever been to court - and it is proposed that children who have been in this abusive and manipulative system will be adopted automatically (in order to save money) when the cheapest option is to support the family with disabilities in the home.
Hope tonight is not gong to have the issues hidden behind closed doors. Get the truth out!
Prime Time could not tell the truth - a thundering disgrace. Rubbish - the state will further take children into care without cause and buldig on the powers then adopt the children without reason and the courts will allow children to make a statement and ignore it.
No postive action and no definitions of the rights with regards to the UN Conventions, protocols and codicils means more state sponsorred uncontested kidnapping.
NO TO a children's referendum without rights.
Rubbish - lies, damn lies and covers ups - cannot lie straight in bed - want an honest debate bring us who have worked in the disability rights for decades and rights of the child since the 70's.
Watch out more children will disappear behind closed doors in the system.
Children get taken away from parents in the night and parents get refused their rights.
Children are brutilsed in care ... the state does NOT take the cases to court and parents and families get bullied into having children taken away without grounds.
Live in the real world. Remember the O'Hara family case and our fight for our children "look up "Meet The Wise Family" or "It's not a crime for a disabled person to have a child".
Most cases NEVER EVER see a court. Parents get bullied.
These children taken in the middle of night by social workers have NO RIGHTS - they bully and lie and cheat to get more money.
NO RIGHTS =- NO Childrens' Referendum - this is a "Sign children away to the state without any grounds and have then illegaly kidnapped and adopted referendum".
STOP LYING! Thousands of such cases happen every year and the Families with disabilities HAVE NO RIGHTS - their children are cattle to be swapped between states social care departments for money.
This referendum makes the provision of the state to take children easier rather then using foreign coutries in contravention of the The Hague Convention.
Let rights be defined and agreed and the protection of families with disabilities to get supports for the family stand to prevent illegal kidnapping.
They never get to court because there is no basis for the state taking the chldren.
We had to fight the extension of respite care heading towards full time/permanent care without grounds or consent while our children were shouted at, threatened, bullied and subjection to physical, emtional and psychological abuse and medical neglect.
WE KNOW THE FACTS - WE HEAR THE FACTS - PLEASE LET THESE FACTS BE HEARD - these are all done behind closed doors and outside of the court.
Do not allow state-sponsrered abuse to become easier.
We need specified chidrens and disabled rights under the UN Conventions and its addtional protocols to give REAL RIGHTS NOW - NOT Negative rights state-sponsored kidnapping and adoption of children who should not be forced into the fostering systen without any reason other then money.
Created the Group Vote NO to the "Children's Referendum" without defined Rights on facebook - look it up:
In order to protect the rights of the family and define rights consistant with international definitions using the UN Conventions, protocols and codicils, a negative rights constitutional ammendment WILL be used to continue to represss the rights of the family where disabilities are involved - rolling back parental powers subject to the whims of social workers adopting out children taken into excessive care without legal grounds, or basis just because of disability is ILLEGAL and MUST remain so.
The inability or unwillingness of the state to deal with the fostering system to brutilise and alienate Irish Citizens at home and abroad ramdomly and without going to court and without cause being in care system, and denationalionalising and exporting children from families with disabilities in order to remove them will allow them to legally kidnap children bullied into care, strip the parents and family of rights to each other without cause and do so in clear violation of The Hague Convention illegally in Ireland, rather then being given reasonable and cheaper support is effectively in the home.
State and Institutional abuse, subject to the whims of social workers withouut fair and balanced legal support of the family must not become legal in Ireland.

(Sorry about having to break it up - would not allow the single text section to be sent so had to break it up into seperate sentences - tried putting it into paragraphs, but like most objections to the referendum not defining and including specific positve rights seem to get blocked otherwise - have to find ways of posting around these blocks.).
