  1. I spent somewhere around 3 years at Leonard st, (V.C.A.S.) from 3 to 6 years old, it was my second home out of eventually 5. I’ve had a few questions about this place, including to my horror this mention of injections, and ‘men in white coats’. Till I had read this, I like many have tried to put these events down and move on, & I was doing OK till the 04 report and obtaining my family paperwork. I’m now 62 years old, still wondering and still horrified with what my memory has to say about the times all those years ago. Yes’ if the shoe was on the other foot there would be an enormous noise about this stuff: I’ve spent the last few years studying and writing about the consequence of our upbringings and conditions, If anyone wants to tell me we came away unscathed at adulthood from these ‘covert’ clinical trials with unquantified substances shot into us, bring it on.

  2. Hi, Tom,

    Thankyou for your information on vaccine experiements 12/7/11.

    I believe vaccine experiements were performed on children in orphanages all over Australia not just Victoria. Not only vaccine experiements but behavioural experiements on psychological traumas produced by various drugs they were experiementing on and electric shock treatment which was used extenstively for erasing memory from theses experiements and also other forms of psychological abuse.

    Psychiatrists were doing theses experiements on F.As have a lot to answer for, for all the abuse they caused to F.As and the government that allowed this to happen. As Prime Minister Menzies in the 50s stated theses children are not wort investing in, this literally gave Psychiatrists and others free range to do what ever they liked and carry on what ever experiements as Psychiatrists Uwen Cameron and Harry Baily of the “deep sleep therapy” procedures also did. Uwen Cameron and Harry Baley were exposed but many other Psychiatrists doing simular experiements have not yet been exposed.
    The various gov. who know all about these experiements have kept very quiet about it as usual, but people are comming forward and exposing them.

    If Premier Anna Bligh or P.M Julia Gillard were abuse like F.As wrere in their childhood, they would screem blue murder and demand great payments of compensation AGREED.
    If I had purposely run over Anna Bligh in my car when she was 13 yrs old , causing her a lot of pain and trauma and severily restricting her ability to further her education work prospects for the rest of her life , and then 40 yrs later because of media exposa I made a show and said sorry and nothing else, that would be the exact similar situation that had occured with F.As. Yet all the abuse they suffered at the hands of Psychiatrists and others no one is offering any compensation of and significance.
    If the shoe was on the other foot they would demand compensation, but as it stands they seem to have the same mind set as PM menzies.

  3. Tom this is really horrifying. In the institution I was in we got no medical attention at all–except I do remember several girls having all their teeth removed because the Welfare thought it cheaper than fixing them. But medical experimentation! I feel indignant on your behalf. But don’t let the idea of carcinogens eat at you, turn it into revealing as much as you can find out. We can get sick from holding this stuff in.
    I send you my support and best wishes
