A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED RAISE AWARENESS AND EDUCATION ON APRIL 25th, 2008!!
The 3rd Annual Parental Alienation Awareness Day was a great success, with even more countries, and more volunteers, helping around the world!

of these behaviors on children, please emails us photos and a description at firstname.lastname@example.org with your event name, location (including country), and
we will post them here for all to view.
Thank you to all of you who support PAAO and PAAD!

Stories from children and adult survivors of Parental Alienation, as well as the alienated parents, can be submitted at here
We invite other organizations, individuals, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, relatives, singers, actors, artist of all cities, to meet at your local Family Court Center in April 25, 2008 at 10 A.M. We invite you to wear white shirts and bring pictures of your children and signs of love and demanding for your right to see and love your children.
We believe that, if we speak loud enough this day, in one voice, institutions and authorities at all levels will be able to hear us.
Children have the universal right to love and be loved by mother and father.

Invitamos a las organizaciones afines, a las personas interesadas, padres, madres, hijos, familiares, cantantes, actores, artistas, etc. en todas las ciudades, a realizar una manifestación pacífica en las afueras de los Juzgados Familiares de su localidad, el día 25 de Abril de 2008 a las 10 A.M. Los invitamos a vestir camisa o playera blanca y a llevar fotos de sus hijos así como pancartas expresando el amor por sus hijos y exigiendo su derecho de convivir con ellos.
Estamos seguros de que si nos expresamos todos juntos ése día en una sola voz, seremos escuchados por instituciones y autoridades.
"Nuestros hijos tienen el derecho universal de amar y ser amados por su padre y por su madre por igual"
Si deseas participar, por favor contáctanos.
Please see attached a few photos of the event and the reading of the proclamation, by the Minister The Honourable Dale Butler on the steps of City Hall. We presented him with a Teddy Bear as a symbol of all our alienated children, also, a copy of ChildWatch's "Family Law Reform Submissions". The Shadow Minister was also, presented with a copy of ChildWatch's " Family Law Reform Submissions", on that day.
I trust that it was a success worldwide, thanks to you and PAAO, and look forward working with you in the near future.
Despite the cold winds, we held our Information Event and Petition
outside of Edmonton City Hall, Winston Churchill Square from
and at the Alberta Legislature (North steps) from 1500-1800h on Friday
April 25, 2008.
We had the PAAO pamplet, PAAD Alberta Petition, numerous PA resources
(various books, suggested reading list, PAAO website Mission and
Selected Articles printouts) as well as my laptop playing selected
DVDs on PA topics and to keep spirits up, my personal PAAO iTunes
It would be less than honest to say there was alot of interest, but
the poor weather certianly had some influence. In any case some
curious individuals came and enquired about PA, and whenever possible
we sallied forth to engage others. Clearly, few are even aware of PA.
I would like to THANK EVERYONE who contributed to our 2008 PAAD Event
and remind all that "from small acorns grow might oaks".
Over the next year I hope others will harness their own concerns about
PA and join with us in order to make April 25, 2009 a better and more
I just wanted to let you know that we are mounting a media campaign here in BC Canada regarding PA. The Family Relations Act is currently under review and we want the public to be aware that despite out best efforts, PA is not on the agenda. We are spending about $8000.00 Cdn to do this. We are also going to be putting a special promo front page on our site (below) and our sister organization PCBC (www.parentswhocare.ca) for PAA Day. If you have any questions please contact me and I will endeavour to answer them and/or pass you to the Programs & Communications Director, John Westwood, or the Executive Director Theo J. Boere.

April 25th. 2008, Bessie Hudgins of Three Sides to Every Story
will have had the proclamation from Sunny Perdue blown up to 36 x 48, and had 2 of them made. She is going to mount them on a piece of wood with a pole so she can display them in the front of her building and at the end of her parking lot.
She is going to light up her yard and parking lot with candles. She isalso going to put lights all over the deck and yard and parking lot to draw attention.
Bessie is also writing a letter to the editor of our paper about the proclamation.
Let's rally in front of the Family Court House in Downtown San Diego to educate the Judges and Mediators how parent alienation is distroying our children because we do not have equal parenting. Parent alienation is a tool the custodial parent use to win in court and receive more child support or used just for revenge. Either way it distroys our children and is child abuse. I hope you come out to support our children and help prevent abuse.

The Court issued a Proclamation on Monday, April 7th, to Proclaim the Month of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Normally these proclamations are done only once a year. He stated, that next year if you could get with Child Guidance and have them add this information to the proclamation it would cover all. He said, that Monday, April 14th during the Public Comment section, he will publicly acknowledge that April 25th is Parental Alienation Awareness which is part of " Child Abuse Prevention" and if you would like to be in court that date, court starts @ 10am, in the Commissioners Courtroom.
Please join a group of concerned parents, grandparents, and other extended family members, in a candle-light vigil on
Friday evening April 25th at 9pm in Charleston. They will meet outside the Capitol building on the Riverside stairs, to show support for the children and families affected.
If you are unable to attend West Virginia's 1st Annual Candlelight Vigil for Parental Alienation Awareness, please consider holding a vigil in your hometown. Then email the details to: email@example.com
Pictures show parents showing signs of love for their children. One of the pictures show the conversation I had with the President of the Superior Tribunal of Justice, Magistrado Jesus Garduño Salazar, who was present at our gathering.
The results of our manifestation was amazing. We were invited by legislators to start working to change laws and promote parental awareness using the legislator facilities. We will meet each week from now, all year to work together legislators, judges and affected parents.
As a next step, I am going to ask important Foundations such as Fundacion Azteca and Fundacion Televisa (major TV companies) to support us with national TV campaigns to promote PA.
I am sure that in one year we will have important results.

We intend to walk through Belgium, Germany and France, reaching Strasburg, for what will literally be a crusade, and will last several weeks.
We shall leave Brussels on the 25th of April, Parental Alienation Awareness Day. We shall arrive in front of the EP building, in Strasburg, on the 21st of May, a few days before the Missing Chidren Day.
We shall go from one town to the next, partly on foot, partly by public transports. We shall stop by in quite a few major cities, in order to collect a maximum of signatures for the petition that we are advertising through this crusade.
We are asking each association, each person feeling involved in this problematic to get as many names and signatures as possible for the petition and to bring them to Strasburg. You are quite welcome to walk with us for the last few kilometres and give the filled petitions to the EP.

Press Release 25 April 2008
PARENTAL ALIENATION AWARENESS WORLD DAY
This morning the association Figli Negati did commemorate the world initiative promoted by Canadian Association against Parental Alienation. To pay homage to Liberation Day for our country, we did not make a sit-in. But our wish was to take some photos in the most symbolic Italian place, at Colosseo. Here we are. The other associations in the world joining this event know they can always rely on us.
Today was a historical day for all these countries in the world that are underestimating how serious is PAS for children of separated parents.
Our way is to do thing, and not just to stop at words. This is the way to make history. Taking part and teaching to those absents that civilization is still far from us.
Thanks to the participants and a very special thank to Diego who became our mascotte. Born only a few days ago, he is already fighting for freedom of children from injustices depriving them of father or mother, paternal or maternal grandparents.
Communiqué de Presse 25 Avril 2008
JOURNEE MONDIALE CONTRE L'ALIENATION PARENTALE
Ce matin l'association Figli Negati a commémoré l'initiative mondiale de l'association Canadienne pour la lutte contre l'aliénation parentale.
Nous n'avons pas voulu faire de manifestation en honneur de la fête de la libération de notre Pays. Mais nous avons voulu prendre quelques photos devant le lieu symbolique de l'Italie, le Colysée.
Nous y sommes. Les autres associations du monde qui ont adhéré à cet évènement savent qu'elles pourront toujours compter sur nous.
Aujourd'hui a représenté une page d'histoire pour tous les pays du monde qui sous-estiment la gravité du SAP pour les enfants de parents séparés.
Nous aimons faire les choses et pas simplement nous arrêter à des déclarations. C'est comme ça que se fait l'histoire. Participer et enseigner aux absents que la civilisation est encore bien loin.
Merci aux participants et un remerciement particulier au petit Diego qui est devenu notre mascotte. Il n'a que quelques jours mais il lutte déjà pour libérer les enfants des injustices qui les privent d'un père ou d'une mère, des grands-parents paternels ou maternels.
Comunicato Stampa 25 aprile 2008
GIORNATA MONDIALE CONTRO L'ALIENAZIONE GENITORIALE
Questa mattina l'associazione Figli Negati ha commemorato l'iniziativa mondiale dell'associazione Canadese sulla lotta contro l'alienazione genitoriale.
Non abbiamo voluto fare una manifestazione in onore della giornata di liberazione del nostro Paese.
Però abbiamo voluto scattare alcune foto nel posto simbolo d'Italia, il Colosseo.
Noi ci siamo. Le altre associazioni del mondo che hanno aderito sanno che su di noi possono contare sempre.
Oggi è stata una giornata di storia per tutti i Paesi del mondo che sottovalutano la gravità della sindrome di alienazione genitoriale sui figli dei separati.
Noi amiamo fare le cose e non fermarci alle dichiarazioni.
La storia si fa così. Partecipare ed insegnare agli assenti che la civiltà è ancora lontana.
Grazie ai partecipanti ed in particolare al piccolo Diego divenuto mascotte del movimento. E' nato da pochi giorni ma già lotta per la liberazione dei figli dalle ingiustizie che li privano del padre o della madre, dei nonni paterni o materni.

To highlight the 3rd International Parental Alienation Awareness Day on 25 April 2008 FNF, JUMP and MATCH will be circulating a Press Release highlighting their joint collaboration on recently undertaken research on Parental Alienation.
A summary report of this research can be accessed via: http://www.fnf.org.uk/downloads/Parental_Alienation_Report_Final_version.pdf
A Press Release will follow within the next 24 hours.
We must continue to work together to raise awareness of one of the most emotionally abusive situations that can affect children following separation and divorce.
It may be too late to help our own children who are victims of PA but our hope is that it will help other parents and children avoid the life-destroying pain and anguish which results from this form of brainwashing.
