Australia's child protection system is ripping families apart

In this opinion piece from Independent Australia, Gerry Georgatos (journalist, suicide prevention researcher, and prison reform expert and advocate) writes "In my work with suicide affected families, I come across stories that the nation should hear." Georgatos refers to Australia's recent branding as the "child removal capital of the world" and the negative impacts of child removal and family separation on children and families. The author calls for a royal commission into child removals, citing class and racial bias and "horrid policies" in the child protection system.
