Will YOU sign it? http://wh.gov/gKV And then, Will YOU Share it?
THIS PETITION IS 100% ONLINE – AND SHOULD TAKE LESS THAN 2m TO COMPLETE.
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Hundreds, if not thousands (Child Abduction in Japan… The REAL Numbers –http://bit.ly/pteCAe ), of US Citizen Children have been abducted to, or retained in, the country of Japan.
Japan has never returned a single child, has no legal concept of “joint-custody”, no enforcement of visitation, no requirement for rules of evidence on claims of DV.
The US Congress, in HR1326, has publicly condemned Japan and demanded the immediate return of this children.
However, the Executive Branch has only held back-room discussions. Additionally, there are persuasive claims the DoS is significantly downplaying the number of actual cases.
There needs to be complete transparency into this process, and public condemnation of Japan. These are our country’s children. We the people deserve to know if they are being traded for bases or other government goals.
Will you sign it? http://wh.gov/gKV And then Share it?
Please take just a few moments of your time to sign this digital petition, and then forward it on to all those you know. Help press the White House to do the right thing, and press for the return of abducted US citizens. As a side effect of this, you will also be helping to force Japan to change it’s current laws and policies regarding divorce and child custody, thereby enabling the estimated 250,000 children who annually lose permanent access to one parent due to Japan’s outdated and inadequate family laws and court system.
