Give Madeleine a chance



video by Justice and Truth * Acta non verba – Actions, not words

Mr.and Mrs. McCann: Give Madeleine a Chance, please ask the Portuguese Public Ministry to reopen the archived Case, for Madeleine's sake, for your daughter.

And while her parents don't ask and don't fight for the re-opening of Maddie's archived case, let's help them by pressuring the Portuguese Public Ministry to re-open the investigation so that international police forces can work together to find Madeleine. Sign the Petition here.

Hi Claudia,

Thanks for putting that video up. It makes a good impact.

I've signed it and sent it off. I hope it travels round the internet and many more people sign it to help this little girl find justice.

Joana Morais has an article from the Express which makes interesting reading. Dai Davis is questioning why the LP's have not acted on information sent by the Portuguese! Surprise, surprise.

I hope you are well Claudia and things are looking up with your uncle.

JUSTICE FOR MADELEINE!

Hi, Nancy.
Thanks for your help. Every little bit is good.
I've just read it. Interesting...
Uncle has been discharged on Friday. Has to rest from the radiation therapy and wait to see if he has to repeat it or not. Will have a thyroid biopsy on the 14th. let's wait and see... Thanks for asking.
We are also dealing with another worry (eye related) but when I know more, I'll let you know.
Have a nice Sunday, Nancy.

Hi Claudia and Nancy,

Signed it. Don't see number 12 on the video being of any use. Those parents have probably forgotten all about Margaret by now.

Thanks for the heads up, Nancy. Trying to get back into reading but it is a painfully slow process.

Cláudia said...

Hi, amigo!
Well, they will probably remember about Margaret now. It's Christmas and during this time people feel more generous...
Beijinhos!

Hi Claudia and all,

Good wishes to all who are attending tomorrow, to stand up for their right to Freedom of Speech!

"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called "leaves") imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time, proof that humans can work magic."

Hi, Zodiac.
Thank you for your kind words.
And what a lovely quote that is! :-)

Hi Claudia,

It is a lovely quote and quite apt imo given the situation GA's book has been placed in. This part sums up for me the Internet and all of us like minded people who have been drawn together:

"Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another."

Thank goodness for the Internet I say! The thorn in the side of the McC's and Co!

Cláudia said...

Hello, Zodiac.
Without a doubt. That is why I am passionate about Literature and did my master's in that area.

nancy said...

Hi Claudia and Zodiac -

Hooray for the Internet - what would we do without it nowadays - as long as we use it for good that is.

However, books are my first love - it's such a shame that many youngsters these days never pick up a book, but just sit at their computers.

There is room for both and one compliments the other wonderfully.

I JUST WANT TO WISH GOOD LUCK TO GONCALO AMARAL AT THE HEARING TOMORROW. LET'S HOPE THAT JUSTICE IS SEEN TO BE DONE AND HE LEAVES THE COURT WITH HIS HEAD HELD HIGH!

Cláudia said...

Hi, Nancy!
Amen to that. To all of that! :-)

nancy said...

Hi Claudia

Well, Goncalo did leave the Court with his head held high eh? Didn't answer a single question put to him by his enemies, the UK press. I think they must realise by now that he is a man to be reckoned with and is not going to take kindly to all that is thrown at him by them. I'm glad the case has been postponed, because it will give those who think the McCanns can do no wrong, i.e. the UK media, time to think and maybe read the book the hearing is all about!

I see the McCann's lawyer (in Portugal) is beginning to panic and admits there are 90% of people with the opposite view to the McCanns. Not sure if she means in the UK, Portugal, or the authorities, but what an admission to make! She actually walked away from the McCanns when they spoke to the press and Gerry came out with his "We are British, and won't take this lying down"! It's a wonder he didn't take the flag with him to wave.

Cláudia said...

Hello, Nancy.
Do you think they're thinking of suing those 90%? :-)
Gladly, they do not represent British people. In fact, they do not represent any people at all.

Gina said...

Hi Claudia and all

This is totally off topic but I find it very amusing. During the last week I have been reading various sites to keep up with the latest on the McCanns v Mr. Amaral etc.

As you all know, whilst I have made no secret of the fact that I do not like the way the McCanns have acted, I have stayed firmly neutral with regards to what happened to Madeleine. Therefore I am interested in both points of view.

Today I took a look at J4 and there was the usual childish rubbish, so I thought I would look at their other site where they post news items etc, and guess what, they have banned me again from reading it. They have done this before then allowed me to read again, and for absolutely no reason as I have not posted anything to them for a very long time.

As I said, I find this very amusing because I can understand why they ban people who keep sending them abusive posts but I would have thought if they had a fair argument or a good point to raise with regards their defence of the McCanns, allowing neutral people to read it would be to their advantage as they may make another convert to their cause. Infact they have done exactly the opposite as far as I am concerned because I am now convinced they have nothing worth reading on their site that makes a valid point so they have done me a favour, and are saving me the bother of looking. Totally pathetic IMO, but amusing nonetheless :-)

Wishing you all a Merrry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Cláudia said...

Hi, Gina.
You still waste time with the reptiles (no offence meant to the real reptiles, of course!)? :-)
Hope you're well and wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas and a great 2010.

Hello

let's hope 2010 brings justice for a little girl uncared for by parents who always put themselves first...

Kate looks very ill and I would understand why if she had always looked that way but way back when this was Raw she looked beautiful and demure full of fun and laughter...

In fact the only time she did look like the mother of a missing child was on the 5th May when she looked terrified... By Maddies Birthday she was laughing her head off a sign they both thought they had put the PJ Plod well and truly in their place...

I would be surprised if it is only 90% of Portuguise who dont like them there is nothing to like even if maddie was abducted they have spun her life into danger and done NOTHING to try and find her...

How anyone can belive them is beyond me if I had paid out 300k con man and my hired help Mitchel had said they were pleased with the work the con man did I would punch him into next week...

If they are telling the truth about the abduction the way they have hadled everything from minute one IMHO makes them more evil than Hindley and Bradey! They never searched told lies refused to answer questions did not insisit on a reconstruction have spent 13% of a 2 million fund on searching and the rest on lawyers spin and wages for the directors???

The Happy snaps of them are full of Joy and that is a feeling I could not get back for a while after my very Ill Grandmother died. the thought of loosing my children tears me up if it happend I dont know how I would ever smile again...

Kate knows their days are numbered it may take another year but what a way to live waiting for the knock on the door to take you away...

Scum nothing more nothing less and Maddie deserves England to stand up for her and tell every neglectful and abusive parent it is not ok and they will be jailed if they dare to hurt their children...

Gina said...

Hi Claudia

No I do not waste my time insofar as I only used to scan through the topics to see if there was anything worth reading,and whether they had infact ever managed to report any news that would probably not be seen on an anti site. Needless to say there has never been anything, not even a conclusion to the tick tock posts, so I suppose when I think about it, it is a waste of time. I would never want to comment on there again because I am not prepared to agree on things I do not agree with, and they can't debate.

As you know, they seem to have a personal vendetta with Mr. Amaral and whilst everybody is entitled to have their own opinion, I consider the threads on J4 to be pathetic and childish, as are the comments. They claim to be staunch supporters of the McCanns but IMO they have lost them more support than they have gained them. With friends like that who needs enemies :-)

Cláudia said...

Hi, Hope.
I think that there's nothing else to be done for Madeleine apart from Justice. Let's hope it happens for her sake.
They make me sick and to be honest, with so many things to worry about, I haven't got much time left to waste on their crap.
Hope you're well.

Cláudia said...

Hi, Gina.
They are the McCanns worst enemies. Believe me...
As for news, nope. Won't find them there. :-)
Hope you're well.

Cláudia said...

'Anon', no problem whatsover. :-)

Gina said...

Hi all

Hope - I think we are all suffering from frustration that after all this time no one knows the real truth and I doubt we ever will. Whether the McCanns are guilty or there was an abduction I agree that the way they have conducted themselves throughout is beyond belief. I read somewhere (don't know if it is true) that they intend to take the twins back to PDL. I just shook my head is disbelief.

I find it amazing just how much money they have wasted hiring the wrong type of people and their Portuguese lawyer said she is stressed (and that is before the hearing !!!).

My wish for 2010 would be firstly that Madeleine is found safe and well but that really is wishful thinking and highly unlikely.

Alternatively I wish that news and TV reporters would just loose total interest in the McCanns and not follow them about where ever they go reporting half truths and one sided versions so that these people can just disappear until such time, maybe the truth will out.

Only the police can sort this out, and if they were given full co-operation maybe, even at this late stage, they could still do it.

Talking about the case, I have always wondered why more was not followed up by the McCanns investigators re the Smith's sighting. Some say it was Gerry, but if it was then I wonder why the dogs did not mark any of the clothes that he was alledgely seen in that night. None of it makes any sense to me, surely if innocent that would be a very big stone that needed turning. Instead of looking for egg and pimple man, perhaps people should have been looking for someone looking like Gerry instead. Hopefully one day someone will work it all out, but I know it will not be me.

Claudia, Yep, your right, too many more important things to concern ourselves about than them. They are not concerned enough to volunteer to answer all questions and do a police reconstruction or pass what information (if any) their investigators have onto the police, and they are Madeleines parents!!

Hi Claudia and all,

Just want to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and good wishes for 2010.

I have shopped until I dropped this week. I have prepared Christmas food (that can be prepared and froze) in advance and wonder just how I managed in the past to buy food, cook it and bake a day before Christmas and on Christmas day. I think I must be getting old because last Christmas seems as though it was only a few months ago! My feet are killing me, my hands are aching from peeling, grating, mixing, rolling and washing pots, bowl etc. All this stress and what do I do? I sign up to Twitter! I think I must be so stoopid cos I don't know how to post there. Any hoo not to worry in 2010 I will be back to blogging and hopefully twittering. Or is it tweetering? Imo next year will not be a non year regarding this case, thanks to GA.

I will pop in out of this Blog, Joana's Blog and The Maddie Case Files over the holiday season and be back to normal at the start of the New Year.

To honour GA and all who strive to help him I am going to buy 12 lovely red carnations and put them in a vase on my sittingroom window cill on the 12th January 2010.

Cláudia said...

Hi, Gina and Zodiac.
Just got home from a Christmas dinner. The third I had. I'm celebrating Christmas everyday! LOL

Gina, I'm fed up with them. can't stand them and wish they would just go away. Fortunately, here they are not exactly fresh news anymore. When they were here last week we had to wait more than 20 minutes until they were mentioned in the news, I guess the press is also suffering from McCann fatigue.

Hi, Zodiac.
Now that you mention it, I was just reminded that I will spend next Wednesday cooking and baking ALL day long. But it is worth it. I love to see the look on the faces of the people I love when they are eating and enjoying the things we prepare for them. It's very rewarding.
I wish you and yours a great Christmas and a fantastic 2010.

nancy said...

Hi Claudia and everyone.

I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a prosperous, happy, and healthy New Year, but not necessarily in that order!

And enjoy all that food prepared and cooked so lovingly over the period!! I am actually being treated to my Christmas dinner in a local hotel/pub, which will be a first for me!

Zodiac - red carnations on the
12th January for Goncalo. What a lovely idea and one which I shall pinch!

See you all in January!

JUSTICE FOR MADELEINE!

Cláudia said...

Hi, Nancy.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
I also wish you and yours all the best on this Holiday Season. A very Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2010.
And I couldn't agree more about the carnations. What a beautiful and meaningful gesture.

Hi Gina

Unless they arranged for an abduction Maddie cant possibly be alive...

I think the McCann's are revolting people but I really dont belive any Mother could be so evil if she did not know where her child was to refuse to help try and find her...

They have spun her life in danger and I really dont belive they would have had she been taken...

I have never believed that she really was taken but after watching 2.5 years of laughter and spin dont believe for a second they are that evil...

It may have been an accident and if that is the case in a twisted kind of way I can understand thier self preservation... Kate now looks very ill check out pictures of any parent who ever had a missing child and they look devestated Kate only ever looked terified the day after on the 5th...

By her Birthday she was full of joy which I put down to relief and lets face it if her child was in the pits of hell she had nothing to feel relieved about.... If she was dead then you would expect some grief but she may have convinced herself there was nothing she could have done and was pleased to get away with it...

The fund and their own actions will convict them people dont belive them there are many missing children with no one to care for them we cant take on the worlds grief as much as we want to... Yet Madeleine the most famous missing child ever is everywhere and her Mother still does not thing she is worth answers????

Cláudia said...

Hi, Mandarinn.
Thank you so much for your kind words and wishes.
May 2010 be your best year ever and may you spend Christmas among those you love and give you happiness and peace.
