In Ireland in the 1940's over 35,000 children were condemned to live under a regime of physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect.
After 9 years and a cost 60 Million the Commission into Child Abuse report was issued which held accounts from 2,500 men and women who were abused in these schools and institutions.
But there has been no justice - we want prosecutions of all those who can be legally brought to justice for these crimes.
Please sign this petition to show the Government that the Irish people want more than a report - we demand justice on behalf of these victims.
The Commission into Child Abuse report clearly shows the failure of the Church and State authorities when it came to exercise their responsibility for the care of children in institutions in in the Republic of Ireland throughout most of the 20th century.
To date there has been no justice for these innocent victims.
As an honorable member of Irish society I want to see prosecutions of all those who can be legally brought to justice for these crimes.
I am signing this petition to request that the Government now lives up to their responsibility and show that we, as a nation, demand justice on behalf of these victims.
The Justice for the victims of abuse suffered in State-run institutions petition to Irish Goverment was written by Sinead Grimes and is in the category Justice at GoPetition.
