A Day in and out of a Committee Room in the EU Parliament

The reason for our trip to Brussels was another meeting of the Petitions Committee with petitions relating to child protection on the agenda:

  • a Swedish group of 40 lawyers present the problems of child protection starting 34 mins on this video;
  • the second petition should have been the story of a Dutch family that was traumatised by Swedish Social Services, but the petitioner didn’t make it in time, so we listened instead:

Please note the reasons for what we’re doing in the UK:


Do sign our petition to Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent to get updates relating to developments within the EU.

We ended up talking extensively to the petitioners as well as Tatjana Zdanoka, the MEP for Latvia on the next post.
