School ends, forced withdrawals of children begin again

Despite a recent ruling by the Supreme Court of Cassation defining the forced removal of minors as 'outside the rule of law', this morning in the province of Lodi an 11-year-old boy was snatched from his mother, who was forcibly and deceptively detained while her son was taken. Here is how the events unfolded in the account of a witness

This morning in the province of Lodi, in Casalmaiocco, an 11-year-old boy, Gioele, was forcibly snatched and suddenly and traumatically removed from his mother with whom he lived.

Here is the facts as told by a MaternaMente activist present at the time:

"Deborah and her son were summoned for a meeting by social services this morning. The meeting took place online and the SS used reassuring tones. The mother then went to the municipality to return the keys to the council house occupied by her recently deceased mother, who had been urged by the mayor to make the return on the same day. Once inside she was violently restrained by eleven people in a room. The child was in the square near the town hall, with an activist from MaternaMente also a member of MovimentiAMOci Vicenza. Suddenly she was accosted by a man, tried to take the child away and then to prevent her from being picked up. She was held hand and foot by five people and the child was taken away screaming. She was subsequently prevented from filming and filming by the constant control of the police force. An ambulance was positioned in front of the municipality to make it appear that the little boy was still inside. In fact, an eyewitness later reported seeing a social services car leaving the back of the municipality before the ambulance had even arrived. Our activist will file a complaint for the violence and brutality of the abduction'.

The bruises and abrasions on Deborah's arms, forcibly held by 11 people

Here Deborah's account in a Facebook Live.

Here the dramatic moment when Deborah is literally kidnapped: as you can see, Deborah is perfectly lucid and in her right mind, despite the unjustifiable violence she is suffering.

All this when a recent Supreme Court ruling, concerning the case of Laura Massaro, ruled out that children can be forcibly takendefining these withdrawals outside the rule of law.

For years groups of mothers and women throughout Italy protest vigorously against institutional violence. Women who have daughters and sons from ex-husbands and violent ex-companions which are forced de facto by the law on shared custody (law 54/2006) to share parenting with the ex-partner, on pain of forfeiture of parental responsibility or removal - often permanent - from the children.

There have been no reverse cases to date, where a child placed by the father was later forced, with police intervention, to reunite with the mother in order to guarantee law 54/2006. Mothers and fathers, women and men, even in these situations, behave differently. Yet we persist, on the right and on the left, in proclaiming a false equality that leads to grotesque and inhuman results such as the removal of minor children from protective mothers who have denounced marital violence.

Last summer, other serious cases occurred, following which with other women's associations we have written to Interior Minister Lamorgese to put an end to the practice of forced withdrawalscontrary to all public health standards.

La Senate Commission on Feminicide analysed dozens of files documenting the severe form of secondary victimisation suffered by women and mothers who are often already suffering from previous situations of domestic violence, judicial stalking and misogynistic societal prejudices.

Despite this, as the school year closed, the son of Casalmaiocco was traumatically and suddenly removed from his mother this morning. Only serious risks and ill-treatment could possibly justify such interventions by the police. Yet the logic of protecting minors is countered by the misinterpretation of the principle of bigenitoriality inherent in law 54/2006 - which imposes equality on paper even in complex situations or situations of previous violence and ensures that all too often, in our country as in the entire western world, a mother is deemed inadequate if she cannot guarantee a relationship with her father, even when the latter has proved violent, abusive or grossly inadequate.

Thus, through a misuse of justice and institutions, the strength of patriarchy is asserted without the victim being able to raise her voice equally, weakened and deemed untrustworthy.

To the attention of: Dear Mr. Marco Vighi Mayor of Casalmaiocco

And p.c.: Dear Municipal Councillors of the Municipality of Casalamaiocco


Dear Mayor, 

As women and citizens, we are dismayed that you, the Mayor, the highest authority in charge of health protection in your area, should have taken part in a 'cunning set-up' (a phone call asking you to take the keys to the municipal house, entrusted to the mother of Mrs Deborah D., who died a few days ago, by the way) in order to lure Mrs Deborah out of the house so that she would be taken unawares, and the infamous authoritarian and authorised act of forcibly removing her son would be carried out. In the presence of witnesses.

Subtraction that, among other things, goes against the Supreme Court Order No. 9691/2022 and violates Law No. 77/2013 ( Istanbul Convention ).

The mayor, under Legislative Decree 299/99, is responsible for the health status of the population in his area

in terms of exercising control functions over the work of the territorial ASLs; Article 6 of Decree-Law 92/2008,

by amending Article 54 of Legislative Decree 267/2000 (TUEL - Testo Unico delle leggi sull'ordinamento degli Enti Locali)

also extended the powers of the mayor in functions of state competence in relation to ensuring

of public security. The Decree of the Minister of the Interior of 5 August 2008, finally regulated the tasks of the

mayor and his powers of intervention, as a government official, in matters of safety and security

public. According to the Decree, for the purposes of Article 54 of the TUEL, public safety also means

the physical integrity of the population residing on the municipal territory.

These responsibilities remain, despite the delegation to the provincial administration on the

management of Social Services and related operations, and are also partly shared with the entire City Council.

Public administration is at the service of the individual, the citizen, the family and the community;

promotes social solidarity and cohesion, protecting the fundamental rights of the individual as identified

by the Italian Constitution, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the Declaration

Universal Human Rights. 

By virtue of the powers and duties assigned to it by the law and in deference to international law, we therefore urge you to take a broad and rigorous view of the concept of public health and safety: snatching a child by forcibly and against its express will from its mother, causing it anguish and extreme suffering, is an action that undermines the child's psychophysical integrity and objectively puts its health at risk.

There can be no valid reason, in the absence of conduct objectively undermining the rights, health and safety of the child, to remove him or her from their family unit, from their fundamental ties, from the mother who brought them into the world loved and protected them.

No amount of protest or belated legislative change can heal the damage inflicted on these children and women. The state shows that it does not know how to help single mothers engaged in the effort to live a life protected and sheltered from violence. The speeches of recent months on denatality are extraneous and completely dissonant with the continuing denigration of the maternal function. 

Recovering the connection with one's own humanity, fragility and with the truth of our lives from birth and care can also be the first step to ending this violence.

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation
In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative
A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]
