1. Activity in Canada - Superheroes in action!
Submitted by: "Kris Titus" bigwonderwoman@gmail.com

Batman and WonderWoman showed up at 393 University Avenue just about
the time Batman and Robin made their great escape from the OPP atop
the 404.

There were many 'spectators' and many who willingly accepted our
literature.  Security came out to poke around, but that was it.

At 9:30 the superheros changed back into their real identities to
bring the message to Queen's Park where Kris Titus participated in a
joint press conference about Parental Alienation Awareness that had
Sarvy Emo ( Co-Founder of Parental Alienation Awareness Organization )
Dr. Marty McKay ( Psychiatrist ) Chaplain Bruce Smith ( who works with
troubled youths ) David Osterman ( President, Fathers Are Capable Too
) and myself.

We will be getting a video I will try to make available.

Greetings Liberators from Fathers4Justice Canada and the Burnaby Bat.

First off I would like to thank all F4J team members coast to coast
for your dedication and commitment to our cause. You Rock...........

Today Fathers4Justice superheroes were out in force across Canada in
support of Parental Alienation Day Internationally. Today another
unknown Superhero "The Saskatoon Dad" was in court attempting to
regain access to his son.  Need I say more? The same unknown Dad who
will be rocking with the rest of his comrades coast to coast, with F4J
banner sent to him and personally signed by the F4J superhero team in
Vancouver BC.

Vancouver BC superheroes, The BC Hulk(Kevin Chrisiaens), Metropolis
Superman (Murray Williams) and Canada's First Batman (Robert Robinson)
ascended upon the pedestrian overpass in Stanley Park Vancouver,only
minutes from the Lions Gate bridge. Our superheroes remained perched
upon the over pass for over an hour in the pouring rain and
cold. Traffic quickly came to a slow crawl with people literally
stopping there vehicles to take pictures of the spectacle before
them. Agent Susi Q, only 5 minutes after having dropped off our team
at the strike zone, heard radio news reports that traffic was being
obstructed by Fathers4Justice superheroes in Stanley park. This
continued for the duration of our stay on several different radio
stations. Apparently several media sources also turned out but were
out of position when it came to approaching us, due to excessive
traffic back log. One radio station announced that police were already
on their way to the scene. It was only upon leaving did we see two
police cruisers with lights on, heading to our location,lol.

Nonetheless today's actions were a complete success, with 6 F4J Canada
teams across the country participating. I have included some pictures
of today's action in Vancouver BC, enjoy.

Another positive today was meeting a gentlemen who turned out to our
event who had spent 5 days protesting outside of a court in Calgary
Alberta, who like many of us has an equally shocking story to tell and
who like some of us is prepared to take his quest for equality to new
heights. Welcome aboard Chris.

In general the public was overwhelmingly supportive with more people
than I can possibly count giving US the thumbs up, taking
pictures,cheering us on, and encouraging our continued commitment to
equality for all families.

Way to go Vancouver - You Rock.

Again thanks to all those who participated.

Together We Will Change The World.

"It's now 6:55, & I just got back from a damp 3 hours of successful
work. I hung my banners across the Island Highway at about 3:40, got
interviewed by a newsie, and never once saw a policeman. Once I'd lost
feeling in my fingertips, I quit, then I realized I'd been out there
for 3 full hours ! I got a lot of good response from the drivers, &
*feel good about what I did* ."

All right everybody the RALLY is on and the Date to set your plans on
is August 18th 2007. This rally will start at 9:00 a.m. est. and be on
going all day.  So pack a lunch bring water to drink and join us to
get the word to Congress that we are not satisfied with the way that
the Health and Human services Department and the Family Courts are
running the system that was supposed to protect children and Families
"all involved in the family". The Courts were supposed to be the
safety net and they have failed the PEOPLE.

Bring your story done in 20 (twenty) pages or less and take it to one
of the tents to register in and get it on the Official Record with

Also review the http://www.dcrally2007.com/ web site for
updates. There will also be a format for your story to be put into
posted on that website.

We have many Great organizations from all across the United States
getting together for this event. And also have planned to have
Officials there to talk to the People (us). We need a great show of
support on this event and I am sure that all that can attend will be
there. This is the next big CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT so get on board and
help out, show your support and do your part after all it is really
for the children (yours and your grandchildren) so as Larry the cable
guy says "GIT IT DONE" we will see you all there.

5. Our Rally in Syracuse - under construction/in July.
We had planned to rally a group of moms and dad outside the offices of
Sen. Clinton in Syracuse, New York.  There is quite a bit of
construction going on in front of the building and it looks like we
won't be able to get a permit date until early July.  More details

6. Indiana parent in prison - 2.5 years for support!

7. Quote worth re-quoting - on equality. 
Submitted by: Teri Stoddard <shared.parenting.works@gmail.com>

     "The ideas on the equality of rights between men and women have
     been marked by an antagonistic approach which exalts opposition
     between them...Success in the quest for equality and the
     empowerment of women can best be achieved when such antagonism
     gives way to mutual respect and recognition of the identity and
     the role of one towards the other." 

     - Archbishop Celestino Migliore, 03.08.07
