Our campaign is to get as much of the general public as possible aware about the scale and effects of child sexual abuse. We believe if enough people join together and raise their voices together, we will be heard. We need change to be demanded by every newspaper, radio station and TV channel.
We need to protect our children. Today as you read this, they are being hurt, and nobody is helping them. Let them know help is on the way.
We will hold events, rallies, have fundraising activities, anything needed to raise awareness about this real horror that is being inflicted daily on our children.
The petition is one of the tools we will use to reach out to people, to say, what is already being done is not enough, it is not working, let us do more.
People believe that we have structures in place to protect children such as the Police, child protection and Children’s services. Most of those who know the truth will say that none of these really did anything to help them when they reported what was being done to them. We have a legal system that has everything in place to protect abusers but insufficient to protect or support victims. Unless the public unite together and say:
“Listen To The Victims Look At The Facts Stop The Abuse”
…the current system will continue to deny or cover up the truth.
There are many organisations working with victims, but much more needs to be done. Organisations need to link together so that victims will know that we are all standing together to stop the silence. Survivors and victims need to feel supported and empowered to tell their stories.
The saying “united we stand, divided we fall” is so true if we are all to bring about the required change. We talk about human rights, yet children being raped in their homes is not treated as a big issue – instead it is covered up and kept in the dark at every level of our society.
