petitie-pentru-copil-indian-luat-de-barnevernet-in-norvegia
Apel la ajutor pentru o familie indiana a carui baiat a fost luat cu forta de Barnevernet in India. Avocatul international Aiyar Suranya a ajutat mult la protestele pasnice pentru romani, mobilizand si participand la ele din India. Acum ne cere sprijin printr-o semnatura, ne cere sa ne alaturam acestor semnatari din toata lumea, sa cerem ca guvernul Indiei sa lupte impotriva Barnevernet-ului si sa le rastoarne decizia de a lua un copil de la parinti ca sa-l tina intr-o casa de copii, strain de obiceiurile, mancarea si limba lor, fara ca sa fie facuta vreo investigatie.

Over 100 Norwegian and International Activists, including academics, lawyers, Norwegian politicians and European Parliamentarians and victims of Barnevernet, Norway’s child protection authorities have written to Indian Foreign Minister, Sushma Swaraj, supporting her intervention in the matter of the 5-year-old only child of Anil Kumar and Gurvinderjit Kaur who has been snatched by Barnevernet in Oslo, Norway on December 13, 2016.
 
The letter states that Barnevernet “has for many years been wrongly taking children from loving parents in Norway. The reasons are incompetence, overbearing officials, lack of transparency, inadequate judicial oversight, and, in cases involving cultural and religious minorities, prejudice and racism.”
Norwegians have been campaigning against Norway’s cruel child protection regime for years and this year alone there have been protests every month against Barnevernet attended by hundreds in cities around Norway.
Human Rights Activist and Commentator, Marius Reikeras, who led this effort from Norway, and has campaigned for justice for countless victims of Barnevernet said: “It is just wonderful to see the Indian- Norwegian cooperation, in order to stop Human Rights violations in this case, as well as in general. Thank you to everyone, who supports our battle in defeating Human Rights Crimes.”

TEXT OF LETTER OF SUPPORT TO SUSHMA SWARAJ
 
28 December 2016
To,
Her Excellency, Mrs Sushma Swaraj
External Affairs Minister of India
 
Subject: Norwegians and International Activists join Indians in urging Indian Government to save Indian child in Norway
 
Dear Madam,
 
We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Norway, relatives of victims in Norway and activists from around the world, are writing to express our support for your intervention in the matter of the 5-year-old only child of Anil Kumar and Gurvinderjit Kaur who has been snatched by Barnevernet in Oslo, Norway last week.
Barnevernet, the Norwegian child protection authority has for many years been wrongly taking children from loving parents in Norway.
The reasons are incompetence, overbearing officials, lack of transparency, inadequate judicial oversight, and, in cases involving cultural and religious minorities, prejudice and racism.
Some of us have ourselves been victims of Barnevernet. We have been campaigning against Norway’s cruel child protection regime for years and this year alone there have been protests every month against Barnevernet attended by hundreds in cities around Norway. Supporting protests have been held in many countries around the world, including the United States of America, Russia, Australia, Brazil, Romania, Czechia, Lithuania and India.
We appreciate India’s earlier efforts in saving Indian children from Barnevernet and highlighting the human rights abuses of Barnevernet in Norway. We urge you to spare no effort in enabling the child of Anil Kumar and Gurvinderjit Kaur to be reunited with his family in Norway or repatriated to India where he can be brought up by his extended family in the country and culture of his origin, and to which he has been used since birth.This is his right under both Norwegian law and international law.
Signed
