UPDATE: Tuesday 14 November 2017 - Melbourne, Victoria
Chair, Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
The cruelty and abuse of the Human Rights of survivors of childhood sexual abuse will haunt us for decades to come and will result in more harm to many of those who came forward trusting that for the first time they would be treated humanely and equally. The result is a deeply flawed redress scheme that denies the Human Rights of thousands of Australians to fair and adequate redress.
"Australia is the only modern developed democracy not to enshrine human rights in a national law" Human Rights Law Centre . Please contact your local member or candidates and community leaders to remind them that thousands of Australian children were raped by clergy and people in positions of power and authority and that as a result of Australia remaining as a non-binding signatory to the Universal Declaration those children were and still are denied access to this most basic of Human Rights. Please do not leave the children of Australia without a basic human right to justice. Please forward and encourage others to step up in support of the rights of children. Help us bring a louder voice and real difference from a scientific evidence based perspective.

You will find this to be an interesting read : Dear Kristina Keneally it's called rape. Child rape.
John Brown was born in Yea Victoria 3717 on 27 December, 1948. John grew up in Yea, he went to the Catholic school on The Parade Yea and then a final year at Yea High school in Station Street. He undertook an apprenticeship as a Hand and Machine Compositor/Linotype Mechanic at the local newspaper The Yea Chronicle who recently declined to publish John's story. John left Yea after realising that the proprietor and local policeman Bill Ellison along with other local Catholics in his hometown and surrounds at that time were well aware of his abuse and of the rape and abuse of other children in Yea and district and were aware of the many events surrounding the murder of Herbert Henry Kemp of Yea ...... read more and more and more and Site Map
Investigation of an unsolved murder in 1962 can no longer be investigated according to police taskforce SANO because a different pedophile Catholic clergyman who raped a child at age 8 is now dead. As a result of the dead rapist being unconnected with the murder Victorian police remain clue less.
Later in life John married in Toowoomba only to begin the most bizarre period in his life as he learned that he wasnow related by marriage to the then bishop of Toowoomba Bill Morris. Morris was the head of the bishops conference at that time and was the "Go to" person in the country for survivors of childhood sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and yet I was never able to get a time or a conversation with the bishop. I did get conversations or connection with a number of Catholic organisations with varying degrees of weirdness some of which I have written about in my blog The FAQyMe gene & the lifelong search for safe, moral and ethical social justice, the Human Right to a trauma informed and evidence based recovery and social re-engagement unhindered by the fear, anger and blockages from other people's gods .
John is author and publisher of #TraumaTheory and regularly blogs at The FAQyMe gene on his journey, recovery and the horror and the scale of this global issue.
John's personal story is just another from the hundreds of millions of other stories across the globe eminating from the human rights abuses and ongoing horrors of the systemic rape, abuses of trust, fraud, deception and cover up in the global Catholic and other religions. Like those others his "issues in life" arose and remain simply because his abusers as a child were just like theirs in that their rapists and abusers were Catholic or Catholic or Christian clergy and they too remain ineligible or unable to have their human rights upheld in their lifetime..
