Defamation and Bullying on Change.org Platform

Goodbye 2016 and good riddance.
I think many people feel the same way about this year and all the horror it has delivered.
We should really be more concerned about the year ahead and the dangerous clowns who are placing their hands on the controls.
We need to prepare ourselves, stand up and fight against hate and injustice.
I want to speak about the past three years and our campaign to end the abuse of Autistic people.
We have been trying to stop Autistic people being experimented on with dangerous and unregulated products such as BLEACH product MMS, unregulated blood product GcMAF and many more.
We have fought very hard for this and have made great progress.
My colleagues inspire me, especially Emma Dalmayne who puts her heart and soul into protecting the Autistic community.
The best part of this year was when I stood in court with the Irish Authorities against the Genesis II Church and their BLEACH product MMS.
MMS was made illegal here in Ireland at the end of October.
See below.
This means anyone manufacturing, selling or using MMS in Ireland are breaking the law and will be prosecuted.
We have educated many about these dangerous products and had many media reports.
It has been exhausting but also rewarding.
The worst part of this campaign is the abuse we receive from the quacks and their supporters.
We are bullied on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, by email, by phone and some have even dedicated their time to writing blogs about us.
A blog was presented to me on Christmas Eve titled ‘Fiona O’Leary the most evil woman in Ireland’
Of course the author is yet another anonymous coward.

My colleague and best friend Emma has received horrendous abuse also.
We always rise above the bullies and focus on our campaign work.
However this time one bully went too far.
A faceless troll decided to create a petition against me in July of this year.
Meet Donald Calavour also known as Donald Macintosh!

The worst part is that the highly respected platform Change.org facilitated this petition which is slander and just a personal attack on the campaign work that I do.
The petition is aimed solely at me with a photograph of me to add further harm.
The petition is updated regularly with fresh slander and they have even dragged Emma into their slander pit.
This petition breaches Change.orgs guidelines but Change have not addressed it even though I have begged them to many times.
See Change.org guidelines below.

The comments on the petition were even worse than the content.
We recognise many of the comments to be from those who give BLEACH product MMS to their Autistic children.
The comments are from the anti vaccine community who support quacks and pseudoscience.
One man from the north of Ireland David McCrea said I was a scumbag who should be in jail, see below.

I have never met these people, never spoke to them in my life.
They are hate filled sheep signing a petition without knowing anything about me.
Yes I am against pseudoscience and I am entitled to voice my opinion.
Change.org have allowed this defamatory petition to remain for six months now.
It has caused great upset to me and my reputation.
Please see some comments from this petition below.

My dear friend and colleague Emma wants to say a few words about this petition also.
{“The fact that Change.org have allowed this slanderous discriminatory inaccurate petition to run for six months is extremely worrying.

The petition against well known autism advocate Fiona O’Leary, an autistic woman and mother to autistic children should never have been allowed.

Fiona advocates and fights for the rights and protection of autistic individuals daily, and I am also mentioned in updates and comments.

I find the abuse I received sickening, I am also autistic and this caused me great anxiety as it did Fiona.

I was branded a child abuser and a fake amongst other things, all unfounded, all pointless slander with comments from charlatans and their supporters, concentrated attacks that coincided with each campaign gain we made in the media.

A new person or case of abuse revealed a guaranteed new update.

We demand an apology at the very least, though at this stage I feel legal action will be the next step”

Emma Dalmayne.}
I have done my best to ignore this petition but I do think it is very damaging and will not tolerate it any longer.
I have sought legal advice and will be taking further action in the New year.
The Police will be addressing this petition also.
I recently shared a screenshot of a comment from this petition on Twitter and shared it on the Change.org Twitter handles.
It must have scared Change.org as they have suddenly sent me an email out of the blue, see below.

They have ignored all my previous complaints and this is the first serious response I have received from them.
This petition is harassment and there are many liable comments throughout.
Change.org have all of a sudden deleted and disabled the many vile comments that were publicly available to humiliate and upset me over the past six months.
Why did they decide to remove them now?
Because they know they have done wrong and are obviously worried.
Not concerned about my welfare but maybe the fact that they are in trouble!
However they still did not disable this vile personal attack on me which is posing as a petition.
This petition is not about regulating Advocates.
It does not speak of anyone but me and my best friend Emma.
It is a personal slanderous attack aided and delivered by Change.org.
It shows my photo and no photos of any other Advocates.
It accuses me of things I have never done.
It claims our organisation ‘Autistic Rights Together’ does not exist and that it is simply a Tumblr Blog?
Please see Autistic Rights Together website, which was created in April 2015 in link below.
It says I went to college for five days, I studied in University for one year.
It says I am not Police vetted when I am.
I do not work for anyone and do not receive a salary.
Our campaign work is done on a voluntary basis.
There are many other false accusations presented on this prestigious platform.
It is defamation and I think Change.org are finally aware of that after six months of me highlighting it to them.
We fortunately took screenshots of all comments and have filed these as evidence.
The cowards who decided to join the BULLY BUS will be held accountable.
As for Change.org they will be held accountable for the harm they have caused me and my family.
We will NEVER stop speaking out and will continue to protect the Autistic community from quacks and unregulated products.
I want to thank all those who support what we do and wish all my friends and family a happy new year.
A big thank you to my dear friend Emma who stands beside me and fights the good fight for justice, I LOVE YOU!
I will leave you with a quote from one of my favorite poets.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.  –Robert Frost

 

Crimes viewed as Mercy Killings

 An Irish Mother is currently on trial accused of playing a role in the death of her daughter.
This trial is happening because Police have evidence which links the Mother to this tragic event.
The little girl that died was 11 years old and was severely disabled.
Caring for a child with special needs can be very difficult, especially if you are not receiving proper supports.
I have Autistic children and I fully understand the lack of supports that are out there.
We see many disabled children murdered by their parents and carers.
I remember reading the awful story of a six year old Autistic boy who was killed by his Mother,
This is London in picture below, he loved to wear hats.

 London was thrown off a bridge.
The Mothers excuse for brutally killing her Son was that she could not take it anymore, she was not receiving enough support.
Then we have another case of an Autistic teenager stabbed to death by his mother, see Alex below.screenshot_2016-12-05-21-53-53-1
Again this Mother claims it was lack of supports that made her commit this heinous crime.
These are just some examples.
There are many more disabled children who are suffocated, poisoned, drowned.
Why?
Because they have a disability.
Because the parent could not take it anymore.
Then we see the media response, the comments on social media.
The majority of comments and media support the perpetrator.
The empathy is given to the person who committed these awful acts of violence.
We often see a brutal crime turned into a Mercy killing.
We see the child disappear from the equation.
Imagine those who are living with disabilities seeing these comments and media reports.
How it must make them feel.
How their lives are immediately seen as less then.
If an able bodied child is killed by a parent there is uproar, people rally around to have that parent charged and we read a completely different narrative in the media.
But if a disabled child is killed that seems to make it different?
Children have rights, disabled children too.
Nobody has the right to take someones life.
People have recently said to me that the trial of this Mother is unjust.
That she should not be under investigation.
Even though their is evidence linking the Mother to the death of her daughter.
See some comments from social media below.

Why shouldn’t this Mother be on trial?
Why should a disabled child’s death not receive the appropriate level of investigation?
Shouldn’t justice be sought for all beings in our society?
Does having a disability mean you should not be allowed those same rights?
A right to not be killed.
I shared this opinion on social media recently and I was met with an overwhelming negative response, saying I was without compassion and that I should butt out and not question the accused.
I was told not to share any articles that are discussing this case.
I believe someone must speak up for the child who has lost its life, it is never okay to brush aside the death of a disabled person simply because the parent/carer happened to be in a ‘desperate’ situation.
If a parent finds that they cannot cope, they should seek help.
Speak to your Doctor, family, friends.
Do not hurt your children, do not kill them.
If we as a society start to blame the system for unlawful killings, what will that lead to?
