Tree Climbers was born as a guttural outcry from victims and survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA) who demanded the focus be put squarely on the issue of CSA instead of famed football coaches, basketball coaches, and Hall of Fame writers.

Our goal is to keep the victims of child sexual abuse at the forefront of the conversation regardless of the main stream media's inability to do so.

As such, I will post news stories as I discover them - And while it saddens me to have to report stories such as these - it does show just how prevalent Pedophilia is in this world.

Excerpt from the Daily News (March 23, 2012):

DOZENS of vulnerable girls were bought and sold for sex by paedophiles running a modern-day slavery ring, police revealed yesterday.

Many of the 24 victims - some as young as 11 - were groomed, drugged and routinely raped over six years.

Council chiefs last night faced calls to set up an inquiry after it emerged that all of the girls involved were known to social services or had been in their care.

The shocking scale of abuse in the affluent university city of Oxford was revealed after police arrested 13 men on suspicion of a variety of offences, including causing the prostitution of females under the age of 18, trafficking and rape.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
