In the best interest of the child and human rights: Alecomm legislation amendments submission

RECOMMENDATION 1 : Statutes of limitations be changed or amended under the child protection act. With no time limit. This would only apply from the date this has been passed. This in turn will hold the perpetrator accountable for their actions. Thinking before acting. Putting the right people in the job. Relieving the system (State government) of further litigations, hence freeing up funds.

 RECOMMENDATION 2 :  Those that are found to be making false and miss leading allegation to be held accountable where by a fine or jail time is imposed.  This includes healthworkers, caseworkers, casemanagers, etc.

Reform for better child protection

Given that Australia has ratified and signed the International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights; and that Article 3 states “The States Parties to the present Covenant undertake to ensure the equal right of men and women to the enjoyment of all civil and political rights set forth in the present Covenant”[1], we hereby state request the following changes in the protection of our most vulnerable assets, our children. Let us see the government show us that children are important to them, and that accountability when it comes to child protection is at the forefront of all their decision making.

The only real remedy for the abuses of the child protection system is its abolition. No one should have the power to take children from their parents by force of arms, and the upkeep of children should not be paid with appropriated funds. Once the child protection behemoth is dead, private charity can easily handle the small load of orphaned children, as it responded to the much larger number of homeless children a century ago before the creation of the welfare state.

Since the political will to eliminate the child protection system is nowhere near to realisation, we have here a list of lesser reforms that may alleviate the hardships in the current system, and lead toward more comprehensive reforms.

What do we want?

Reform the human services, which thanks to our government repeating past attrocities, has again turned our most vulnerable into extremely profitable commodities for greedy NGOs.  Government to facilitate all human services and withdraw use of NGOs immediately.

Accountability and jail for any human services employees or stakeholders breaching any law or policy or procedure.
