A massively controversial social media post is urging an online group of dads to take part in a co-ordinated strike to abduct their children on the same day.
Domestic Violence Against Men, a group with 19,000 members, has published a call to dads to “grab their kids” on 1 December and take them to another state.
If they were all to do this on the same day, this would then reduce the ability of police to take action
“On the 1st of December every father must grab their kids & run to another state, then report the mother for sexual abuse, ” read the post.
Fathers were instructed to take the kids as far as they could and also shouldn’t hesitate to make false claims about the mother, as reported in news.com.au.
“We are going to make headlines no matter what it takes, no one gives a shite about how we are affected or why we #suicide,” he said.
“Truth is, no father has it in them to take a child away from a mother yet a mother will do it & doesn’t give a …. who it effects.”
A Group For Victims To Vent
The group is a platform for male victims of domestic violence and was started in the hope that its members would use the site to vent their frustrations rather than commit suicide.
The administrator of the page says that he, himself is a victim of domestic violence and claims he has been falsely accused of committing domestic violence.
An Australian Federal Police spokesperson has responded to the post, saying that they were aware of a number of groups that advocated for all sides of family law matters.
“The AFP encourages all parties to resolve Family Law issues in accordance with the best interests of the children involved and the law,” she said.
