The powerful speech @AsiaArgento during the closing ceremony of Cannes. “I was raped here in 1997 by Harvey Weinstein.” Going on to describe Cannes as HW’s hunting ground; many BBC past Students & their Families will remember how BBC was remembered as a ‘hunting ground’. Even the term “hunting ground” can be remembered in some of BBC’s (un-admitted) Offenders of the 1990’s. Perhaps this why any public announcements correlate with a psychological effect, that’s been hidden to some level. Even decades and decades after the events happened, any reminders of them may trigger some reaction(s).
This is where LivingWell have provided their resources, suitable to these male Survivours and their Families. “We all benefit from maps of life’s territories. We do not live our lives in straight lines” is from the Indigenous themed clip ‘No Straight Lines’.
Following various contacts from Students, Family & Staff re: ongoing-care of Child Sexual Abuse situations – 2017 is already starting to be a productive year. Fortunate that Qld Gov have already altered their Compensation Laws, allowing for time restrictions to b e be removed, many of the BBC instances are permissible of claims. Another advantage is the accepted patterns that are being reinforced by GM Cujes (RC Broadcasts, 2016) & other key Staff.
Although many of us are still trying to cope with the negative impact of our time with Butch, one of us has suggested that we could lay Charges on him for what was experienced at BBC. As this is expected to be seperate from individual / collective-group Claims, it has been suggested that we can lodge it together.
As Cameron Russell was willing to be our Contact for this part, please respond to him on the following details. Alternatively, I will continue to FWD any of my collected info to Cameron Russell, for these purposes.
After meeting with another CSA Survivor of Buchanan’s behaviours in the 1980’s, more common traits have stood out. Following a similar meet with a CSA Survivor of Secondary abuse, resulting from Buchanan’s initial abuses, there is no wonder that Institutions (Churches, Schools, Teams etc) invest more in silencing this explosive tigers-dragons-mines!
It is with bewilderment that some Survivors of CSA bring forward their stories and certain ‘foundations of society’ do not show any compassion, only displaying defence. Throughout the current Royal Commission in Australia, I have experienced challenges and legal threats, for somethings included in my own “Coping Mechanisms”.
From the growing multitude of evidence, witnesses and cited Institutions – Australia is truly `leading the way’ amongst our world’s countries. This is truly a much-needed change, away from a long-term culture of “Hidden Secrets”.
Government agencies, organisations and individuals who may have information or documents relevant to the work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse can all be required to produce them.
What is an institution?
What powers does the Commission have to require production of documents or summon witnesses?
What is a reasonable excuse for not complying with a summons to give evidence or produce documents to the Commission? (cont…)
