George Alexander, a kindergarten director of Romanian descent in Norway resigned his post after Barnevernet put pressure on him. He was a vocal critic in social media of the way Barnevernet handled the confiscation of the Bodnariu, Nan and other Romanian children.
Following comments made on Facebook, he was “followed, supervised and denied,” by his bosses he said.
Barnevernet told him: “You are not allowed to do this… that… (referring to his Facebook posts). You are only allowed to breathe Norwegian air.”
Alexander continues: “I was told I am being sanctioned due to my involvement in the Barnevernet cases”
It turns out that CPS victims were reaching out to him for help, but the State tried to keep him quiet by threatening him.
He announced his resignation today on his public FB timeline: “I chose to be free. To remain myself. I resigned my directorship.”
Delight in Truth thinks this is a significant development. We knew that the Norwegian CPS was sensitive about its image in social media, but not to this extent. It is now clear that they are desperate about the negative international publicity they have received in the last 3 months following the high-profile Bodnariu case where they impulsively and abusively confiscated 5 children.
These are the same tactics that Alexander observed in communist Romania. Freedom of speech is sacrificed in favor of State ideology, and freedom of expression is now reduced to the right to breath Norwegian air.
We will continue our activism and this will only increase as we approach D-Day, the massive international anti-Barnevernet protest on April 16th, 2016 when over 100,000 people will participate world-wide.
How far has Barnevernet dug itself? Will they reverse course and immediately return the Bodnariu children?
Will they undo the shame that is pouring on Norway at this time?
