Establish 2016 as European Year to make all domestic abuse laws in the EU gender neutral.

Standard

A new petition has been launched on Change.org the successful website that has raised the profile of a number of social injustice cases such as :

Phill started a petition to get his 13 year-old son Josh back home. Josh has severe autism and in 2012, was moved to a treatment unit in Birmingham 5 hours away from his family. This was meant to be for 6 months but he is still there.

Phill’s local NHS said there are no services for Josh in their area, so Phill makes the long journey every weekend just to give his son a cuddle.

Over 180,000 people have already signed Phill’s petition to bring Josh home.

The petitioner is asking “the EU must therefore raise awareness on the issue and affirm its political commitment to end violence against men.” The Bedfordshire Men’s Forum is pleased to support this petition and asks our followers to do likewise by going to :

Establish 2016 as European Year to make all domestic abuse laws in the EU gender neutral

….the petition will be sent to the European Commission President.
