Baby W’s operation is today at 8am, having been uplifted without notice by police in the middle of the night.
Updated reports below from the Counterspin Media Telegram channel:
Four police officers entered the room where baby W and his twin brother slept soundly.
Without notice, they seized him.
In the words of W’s father:
‘Baby W has tonight been ripped from his bed and his mum, in a display of ultimate cowardice by masked people dressed as police at 11 o’clock at night, to be made to undergo invasive procedures, before being forced against our will to have a rushed and unprepared for surgery.’
This happened despite last-minute efforts by the family’s legal team and experts from across the world, who were studying his case and making recommendations that were then passed to the judge on the case.
Now, his life is in the hands of the hospital staff.
Let’s hope, for W’s sake, they see sense and provide him with an uncontaminated blood supply.
Those that are wanting to protest this gross state overreach, at 10am tomorrow [ie today] outside the hospital, are asked to do so in a peaceful manner.
Our prayers are with W and the family this morning.
A further report from just after 6.30am this morning:
Baby W has surgery at 8am this morning.
Just before midnight last night, Baby W was uplifted by the police while he slept.
S, his mother, and his twin brother were allowed to join him. However, C, his father, had to leave the hospital.
S is exhausted and very scared given there are two police officers in her room.
An imposed condition states that she must stay awake if she stays with him, even though it’s from midnight to 8am and both babies are sleeping.
The police are trailing her even to the toilet. They told her this was due to orders from above
The policewoman let slip they intend to arrest S this morning. S doesn’t know why.
We must protect W and his twin brother J.
The family appreciate your support from 8am this morning outside the Auckland Hospital, entrance steps at 2 Park.
