Hey everyone, just your daily friendly reminder that it’s been 34 days since the brutal Oranga Tamariki footage was released showing the grotesque abuse of power by government officials who threaten, lie, cheat and manipulate their way into trying to steal an infant baby from her exhausted mother.
It’s been 34 days since the rest of NZ discovered the brutal enormity of the 2016 changes by National that weaponised the CYFs uplift powers into the Ministry for Vulnerable children.
It’s been 34 days since we saw with horror that neoliberal social polices were creating another stolen generation.
It’s been 34 days since Māoridom erupted as one voice and screamed ‘enough’.
It’s been 34 days and neither the Prime Minister of NZ or the Minister in charge of defending Oranga Tamariki have even bothered to watch the footage that has sparked such outrage.
In 2016 the National Party weaponised CYFs uplift powers & created the Ministry for Vulnerable Children (later brown washed to Oranga Tamariki) so why the Christ will the PM and her Minister die in a ditch for draconian neoliberal big data social policy that isn’t even theirs?
How come defending civil servants seems to be far more important to this Government than defending the children taken and the whanau’s robbed from? If only the PM and Minister could care for them as much as they do the reputation of bureaucrats.
Tomorrow it will be 35 days since the Oranga Tamariki footage was released & the Prime Minister & Minister still won’t have seen it.
