Waatea News Column: ‪I don’t believe the majority of those arguing about OT fully appreciate how deliberate and horrifically brutal this policy of taking children truly is

If your contribution to the breath taking abuse of child uplifts by Oranga Tamariki is “But it’s not racist” – perhaps you should sit this one out. Maori have been complaining about losing their children to the State since the 1940s – this damaging child theft policy isn’t new.

…I don’t care about scabs. If you refuse to join the union but then benefit from the better conditions they negotiate, you are a scab. Union members should be rewarded for a better negotiated deal, these scabs are just lucky they will also benefit from the better pay and conditions.

Now Pakeha media have highlighted the horror of Oranga Tamariki’s theft of Māori children – will Government be shamed into action?

By   /  June 12, 2019  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  21 Comments

We all accept that there will be some parents who are a danger to their children, but they are the exception, not the rule, and the incredibly low thresholds being used to seize children is just unacceptable. We know these children have more risk of being abused in State care, we know these children taken into state care tend to turn up in our prisons, we know that we are not supporting vulnerable parents to help them be the best parents they can be.

You might not like Kim Dotcom, but the manner in which his rights have been breached and 70 odd armed paramilitary cops broke into his home and terrorised him and his family is as unacceptable as the abuses of power  used in court against him.
