As I reported back in April, the Ministry of Child and Family Services are holding a 10 year boy in foster care while awaiting a hearing for a protection order.
The boy’s father, Ian McFadden, has provided supporters with proof that the allegations against him are fabrications, but must wait until August 30 in which to present his case.
Since his last court appearance, where his request that the hearing be set aside and his son released was denied, Ian has had his visitation rights withdrawn without explanation, and his son moved to an undisclosed location.
James has already been in foster care for 8 months.
From Ian’s Facebook page: “I ask that anyone who is able to, demonstrate in the vicinity of a Ministry of Children and Family Services/Development for a proper investigation of the Ministry’s current abuse of Waas-Am-Laxa, James McFadden. Information available at http://www.freejames.webs.com and pertinent emails to email@example.com
Gunalcheesh, How’a, Thank you. Many Blessings and love.
Ian’s supporters have called for a demonstration tomorrow.
Tuesday July 3rd, 3pm,
Ministry of Children and Family DEVELOPMENT OFFICE.
1195 Esquimalt Road
More from Ian’s Fb page:
“I am now engaged in a fasting ceremony until I see my son again and an proper investigation by US and Canadian and International Authorities conduct a proper investigation.
To date there has been zero accountability and my son’s whereabouts are unknown. Police are unwilling to investigate, and I was attacked on “Canada Day” for engaging in prayer ceremony in Victoria with a petition for Waas, James.
I am a person of good medicine and my “Natural” Name is recognized by Grandmothers and Grandfathers as “Ancient One.”
In fasting, it is our belief that we give strength to prayer by doing so. I do not know if my son is okay but at this time I must seek answers within and pray for the safety and well-being of Waas, James.
Some may call it a hunger strike and that it is a method that many have used to bring attention and resolve to conflict, and if such references helps in protecting my son, then so be it.
I am disengaging in social activities while my son is in detention, whereabouts unknown within the Ministry and I ask that people not judge me for my beliefs, and not cast opinions that are less than kind.
This is not about me. This is about an innocent 10 year old boy who is suffering needlessly and he NEEDS your help to save him. HE NEEDS YOU. And trust me, the world needs him now more than ever for his integrity as a loving being is solid.
May you have many blessings in your path, and may my son be safe and happy,and returned to my care that he be allowed to continue his path with the guidance of his Clan Grandmothers now that he has reached the age where it is significant for his proper development as a Tsimshian Prince.
It is his inherent right to practice his own language, culture, and religious beliefs in his ancestral homelands which are centered in the northwest coast of british columbia and alaska.
Gunalcheesh, how’a, thank you.
James Needs You!”
