Song for Simon




Sent to us from Garry a loyal N/E supporter and accomplished acoustic musician, he penned this song after meeting Tyne bridge protester Simon Anderton.


Garry said "Meeting Simon had a profound affect on me, I couldn't climb a bridge and thought what could I do instead?"


"Simon's bravery and determination to publicise the cause inspired me to write this song, I have been playing it live at my gigs and it has been going down well"


"If work commitments allow I also plan to play this live outside the court at Simon Anderton's trial in December"

For Immediate Release December 9, 2008

Surprise!
Anniversaries usually represent happy times of remembrance.
This day, however, marks one of the saddest days in our history.
On December 9th 1998, the Government of Canada released the For the Sake of the Children Report on Custody and Access recommending an overall shift towards shared parenting rights for children and parents of divorce, now backed by 10 years of significant public support.
Sounds like a cause for celebration, right?
Surprise!
The box is empty, full of empty promises, empty hearts, empty lives and empty cries of the children of divorce.
The Government of Canada has knowingly and wilfully turned their back on Canada's children for the past 10 years, keeping them at great risk for all kinds of pitfalls. So whose "best interests" does the government serve?
Maybe in another 10 years, we will actually have an Anniversary worth celebrating with our children because they are the winners, not the prizes.
In the meantime, will the decent politicians please stand up!
