IF YOU NEED TO FLEE - thinking outside the box


Sent to me yesterday from someone who saw the photo in the last blog entry - someone who herself has been living hard life for years now:

"If you know of someone in this position, there are some options that not too many people know about. It is to seek asylum in other English speaking countries. I have done some research. Canada and Australia and New Zealand will accept United States Citizens, under specific circumstances, with domestic violence protection orders. These three countries recognize that women and children, in the United States, are basically vulnerable to death because of the way the justice system handles domestic violence. You can contact me directly for information. You can also seek refugee status through the Catholic Church. The bottom line is that with the correct paperwork you can move to another country where your batterer will be barred from entry."

  1. It is so very frustrating- even when we have countries that recognize spousal abuse they still do not take it as seriously as it needs.
