I am involved in a campaign to stop children being illegally removed from the country.

How do you get on this "mumsnet campaign" topic list? Who do you approach to get it vetted?

Why do you want a campaign against something that is already illegal? Whose mind are you hoping to change?

A good question. There should be no need of such a campaign. The MET police should investigate of course. But as we have seen, the MET did not investigate the hacking scandal properly, the MET were being paid by the media and just today we have seen that MET officers were (allegedly) taking bribes from a money launderer ("The Home Affairs Select Committee was told about 'apparent corruption right at the heart of New Scotland Yard'.")
In my case the MET did not investigate and even refused to admit they received documents.
The minds I need to change are those of the public. They need to know what is going on. With enough public support, enough pressure, the authorities would be forced to confront this sickening trade in children.
It will deeply shock the public. That is why the MET won't touch this. This is why I need support.

What's your evidence of this illegal trade in children?

It's complicated, as it would be of course if true. My main problem is one of credibility. To solve that I did the only thing I could do which is explained in a letter to the UN (on the "About this petition" tab).
