More On "Breaking The Silence"

I received this press release in e-mail.


I presume that most of you are aware that on Oct 20, PBS will be airing a
groundbreaking documentary Breaking the Silence: Children’s Stories, that exposes
Parental Alienation Syndrome by telling the tragic stories of children who
have been assigned custody to their abusers.

You may or may not be aware that the Father’s Rights folks have mounted a
campaign to PBS urging them to pull the film. I have spoken to people at PBS and
they have assured me of their commitment to airing the film, but they’ve also
indicated that it would be helpful to have letters of support from the
professional community.

Please visit http://www.stopfamilyviolence.org/196 to sign on indicating your
professional or organizational support for PBS’s airing of this important
film. Since I realize no one sign-on letter says it all, and since some of you
may have seen the film, I’ve set up the webform so that you can include comments
if you’d like.

In addition, I encourage you to send your own letters to Pat Mitchell, CEO of
PBS pmitchell@pbs.org
Please cc me on any messages you send.

You may also wish to visit http://www.stopfamilyviolence.org/194, where your
support and comments will be displayed to our site visitors. On this page
you can also view the rest of Stop Family Violence’s campaign to PBS. We are
collecting stories from women and children who have been adversely affected by
PAS decisions and will be submitting those to PBS as well.

Three weeks ago my 12 year old daughter came home from a weekend with her Dad with a big bruise on her upper arm. Her therapist called the Department of Children and Family services, who scheduled an investigation. One week ago, we were back in court, and the guardian recommended MORE custody for Dad. Why? Because he claims our children our suffering from Parental Alienation Syndrome.
How can I fight back?

judge gibbons of no nv gave my 9 year old to man who has beaten 11 women and children. false accusations against me, no proof. judge and attorneys don't allow my proof that what he accuses is actually what he does to us. i am entitled to tape record but the judge is not effected by my ex's rage, profanity, and threats. my 9 year old has lost 18 pounds in 1 year. she is skinny, hungry, he refuses her asthma perscriptions, she's lied to, abused emotionally and physically, police officers refuse to help and call us "the move away case", they told her if it gets to bad just run away, they look for bruises on her but he knows how to hurt without a bruise.......
