Romanii din Texas organizeaza un rally pentru Familia Bodnariu, sâmbătă, 16 aprilie, de la orele 10.00, in fata Consulatului Norvegian din Houston. Adresa: 3410 West Dallas Street, Houston, Texas 77019. Se asteapta participarea a sute de romani din zona si statele adiacente.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
Este vorba de un rally, nu de un mars, care se va tine pe trotuarele strazii din fata Consulatului, pe ambele parti ale strazii. Va incepe la timp si va dura peste două ore. Initiatorii si organizatorii principali ai evenimentului sunt toate bisericile romane din Houston.
Rally-ul de la Houston este important deoarece Norvegia obtine profituri uriase din afacerile care le face in Houston. Peste 200 de companii norvegiene fac afaceri aici iar comunitatea norvegiana locală e cea mai mare din afara Norvegiei, în jur de 10.000 de norvegieni. Mari companii din Houston (Baker Hughes, Halliburton, KBR ori Exxon) investesc sume uriase in industria energetica a Norvegiei. Texasul e un punct strategic in eforturile comune de a demasca aspectele intunecate ale statului nordic si abuzurile pe care Barnevernet le face impotriva familiei si a copiilor.
Va oferim o lista a oraselor din intreaga lume unde am fost informati ca se vor tine proteste:
Millions of Romanians have left their homeland in the last several decades to escape political and religious persecution at the hands of the Communist regime. Many others left seeking a better life abroad. Thousands resettled in Norway as well where, as everywhere else in the world, they have maintained their deeply held religious beliefs and traditional values.
On November 16, 2015 Norway’s Child Protective Services, known in Norway as Barnevernet, seized the five (5) children of Marius and Ruth Bodnariu under cover of darkness and without court order. Four police officers and two social workers stormed the family farm, falsely accused the parents of abusing their children, and seized the children, aged between three (3) months and 9 years old at that time. Inappropriate and discriminatory comments were made about the family’s religion and faith, including the alarming allegation that the family’s religion inhibits the proper development of the children.
Norway had long targeted the natural family and has a systematic policy of removing ethnic children from their immigrant parents and placing them in foster homes, depriving the parents of their parental rights, and then putting the children up for adoption.
Since November 16, 2015 tens of thousands of Romanians have held peaceful rallies in Romania, Europe, North America, and Australia to protest the violation of the Bodnariu family’s parental rights and parental autonomy. More demonstrations are planned in support of the family in Poland, Russia, the Czeck Republic, and other countries where families which have also been victimized by Norway’s Child Protective Services live.
On April 16, 2016 Texas’ Romanian-Americans will join this international protest.
Houston is home to 10,000 Norwegian citizens, the largest Norwegian community outside of Norway. Some 200 Norwegian companies do business in the Houston Greater Metropolitan Area.
