Get Children out of Prisons!

Australia is locking up kids as young as 10 in degrading conditions that violate their human rights. At least half of the children held in Brisbane´s watch houses are indigenous. Many are ‘on remand’ — locked up even though they have not been found guilty or sentenced.

Investigations of Amnesty International into Brisbane´s watch house uncovered stories of children at risk of suicide held in isolation for days. Of fingers severed in maximum security doors. Of kids forced to choose between clean clothes and phone calls to their families. Of four young girls held in damaging isolation because they are not safe with adult inmates. And of children suffering without access to health care and education. This is just the tip of the iceberg.




Culture Destroying Boarding Schools

The indigenous girl Norieen has fled together with her brother and five friends from a boarding school in Malaysia. In fear of being beaten the children have wandered for weeks through the thicket of the rainforest – unfortunately four of them have not survived their escape. Another child is still missing. As if by a miracle Norieen and one of her friends have been found alive …

Between 1876 and 1996 thousands of children were separated from their communities by interning them in residential schools in Canada. They had to experience humiliation, violence and indoctrination. The aim of these 'institutions of education' was to steal the identity of the children and to replace it by an alien name, religion and language. Thousands of children have died as a consequence of psychical and physical mistreatment, trying to escape or by suicide; more info.

CDU/CSU and Lobbyism

abgeordnetenwatch.de: At first he sweared at us as a watchdog organization which no one really needed then he linked our organization with the Nazi dictatorship and the communism. It was our engagement against lobbyism which caused CSU deputy Hans Peter Uhl to attack us (the CDU/CSU is the German member of the EVP).

The fact that the CDU/CSU party continues to battle against making lobby meetings public attributes to a more and more desperate struggle of defense: 70% of CDU/CSU voters want lobby meetings to become public.
