Gang Stalking World

United we stand. Divided they fall.

9 year old in American prison camps?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLlzYBxUXCM

I just came across this video and I have to admit I am a little a lot surprised by it.

The video shows a doctor talking to some prisoners. Towards the end of the video he comes upon some youth prisoners, they tell him they are all under 18. During the video you hear one say that he is nine and that he requested to be taken instead of his father.

If America is really keeping children in war Prisons?

I don’t think about the concentration camps much. It horrifies me that the world has come to this again. I was just thinking what would Anne Frank think about this had she lived long enough? The very Americans that liberated Jewish children from these Nazi death camps are keeping children in War camps themselves?

I am having trouble wrapping my mind around it. I am having trouble watching history repeat itself. I am feeling guilty for not doing more to end an unjust occupation and to see that justice get’s done. I am sad because I have not written about it. I have been selfish and focused on my own problems and have forgotten that there are those in worst situations than myself. I have forgotten to pray for them.

I have read and do believe that a lot of these people much like the Arar case are being unjustly held. Laws that should have prevented this, are being trampled over, and I think what we allow to happen to others will happen to us.

I mean we allowed unfair imprisonments, well now enemy combatants can be arrested and unfairly imprisoned without much rhyme or reason, and anyone can be an enemy combatant.

I knew about the camps and should have been writing more about what has been happening there, but like many others I have been complacent. This unjust occupation is ok because we are the ones doing it. If it was being done to us it would be another story. Children are being kept in camps? If the kids were ours, it would be another story. It’s simple really, what you don’t want for yourselves, don’t allow it to happen to anyone else. I do believe that what we allow to happen today to these people will tomorrow be re-enacted upon us by our own governments, and that is a scary thought.

As someone who has seen a glimpse of what the State is capable of with the consent and help of my fellow citizens, I realise that the future is a truly frightening prospect if I don’t speak up, and don’t speak out when I see things that I think are unjust. Well I do think this is unjust and I am saying so. It is just not right to put children in war camps. It was not right then, and it’s not right now.

Serious Surveillance used on local citizens

I found a really interesting article after I finished blogging yesterday.

The anti-terrorism laws that have been put in place to protect society are being used to harm society, or at the very least they are being misused.

As I mentioned before the structures that we are looking at is federal programs with local appendages. The community council programs in the UK are some of the best examples right now, because the outcome is so much more clear than anywhere else. The UK really has in my opinion become a surveillance society, not just because of the CCTV cameras no, but because of the civilian spying as well.

[quote]
An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph found that three quarters of local authorities have used the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) 2000 over the past year.

The Act gives councils the right to place residents and businesses under surveillance, trace telephone and email accounts and even send staff on undercover missions.

The findings alarmed civil liberties campaigners. Shami Chakrabarti, the director of Liberty, said: “Councils do a grave disservice to professional policing by using serious surveillance against litterbugs instead of terrorists.”

The RIPA was introduced to help fight terrorism and crime. But a series of extensions, first authorised by David Blunkett in 2003, mean that Britain’s 474 councils can use the law to tackle minor misdemeanours.

Councils are using the Act to tackle dog fouling, the unauthorised sale of pizzas and the abuse of the blue badge scheme for disabled drivers.

Among 115 councils that responded to a Freedom of Information request, 89 admitted that they had instigated investigations under the Act. The 82 councils that provided figures said that they authorised or carried out a total of 867 RIPA investigations during the year to August

[/quote]

The RIPA act is obviously being misused in these instances and it’s helping people to do all sorts of bad things.

[quote]
Surveillance operations aimed at individual homes and businesses can last for months. Calderdale council in West Yorkshire began “direct covert surveillance” targeting one business in May that is still going on.

Local authorities including Bassetlaw, Easington, Bolsover and Darlington have placed houses under video or photographic surveillance to tackle problems such as anti-social behaviour, unauthorised entry into gardens and benefit fraud. Others admitted using council staff to follow residents to determine whether they were working while claiming benefits.
[/quote]

If they will misuse these laws for simple things such as anti-social behaviour, benefit fraud, etc what else would they use these laws to do?

[quote]He added: “Councils do not use these powers to mount fishing expeditions. First and foremost it is about protecting the public, not intruding on privacy. Crime-busting powers are targeted at suspected criminals and used only when absolutely necessary.”

Smokers, drivers and even emails are being monitored
* Newcastle City Council used the Act to monitor noise levels from smoking shelters at two different licensed premises. The council has twice used the legislation to monitor noise from a vet’s practice following a complaint about barking.

* Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council used it to deal with 16 complaints about barking dogs.

* Derby Council made sound recordings at a property following a complaint about noisy children.

* Peterborough Council investigated the operation of the blue badge scheme for disabled drivers.

* Poole Council used it to detect illegal fishing in Poole Harbour.

* Basingstoke Council used photographic surveillance against one of its own refuse collectors after allegations he was charging residents for a service that should be free. The operation was dropped when it was decided the allegation was false.

* Aberdeenshire Council admitted using the Scottish version of the Act to request the name and address of a mobile phone user as part of an investigation into offences under the Weights and Measures Act.

* Easington council put a resident’s garden under camera surveillance after a complaint from neighbours about noise.

* Canterbury City Council used CCTV surveillance and an officer’s observations to monitor illegal street trading.

* Brighton and Hove council launched four operations against graffiti artists

* Torbay Council accessed an employee’s emails after an allegation that suspect material had been sent. A second employee was investigated over the “use of council vehicle for personal gain”.

* Westminster City Council covertly filmed a locksmith following allegations of fraud.

* Durham County Council obtained authorisation to monitor car boot sales during an investigation into the sale of counterfeit goods.

Power in the hands of local authorities
[/quote]

The list of misuses continued. In the hands of the wrong powers and authorities these laws are clearly being abused.

Since the government put the power into the hands of the people, which I think is a good thing if done right, in these instances they are clearly misusing these powers, but no one is monitoring it and no one will say anything about it.

[quote]The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act allows for the interception of communications, acquisition and disclosure of data relating to communications, carrying-out of surveillance, use of covert intelligence sources and access to encrypted or password-protected data.

It can be evoked by public servants on the grounds of national security, and for the purposes of preventing or detecting crime, preventing disorder, public safety, protecting public health, or in the interests of the UK’s economic well-being. Councils were first granted use of the legislation in 2003.
[/quote]

Public servants can evoke these laws and they have been using them very liberally. As you will see in the second article.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2696035/Anti-terrorism-laws-Snoops-persec ute-minor-offenders-as-crooks-avoid-justice.html

[quote]Councils are using anti-terrorism laws to spy on residents and tackle barking dogs and noisy children.
[/quote]

It’s not what the law was intended for, but without proper monitoring it’s all apparently being done.

[quote]The Act gives councils the right to place residents and businesses under surveillance, trace telephone and email accounts and even send staff on undercover missions.

The findings alarmed civil liberties campaigners. Shami Chakrabarti, the director of Liberty, said: “Councils do a grave disservice to professional policing by using serious surveillance against litterbugs instead of terrorists.”

The RIPA was introduced to help fight terrorism and crime. But a series of extensions, first authorised by David Blunkett in 2003, mean that Britain’s 474 councils can use the law to tackle minor misdemeanours. [/quote]

This is alarming, think about what this means. Serious Surveillance against litter bugs? What about people that they think are crazy or a bit off? What about that outspoken activist? What about that homeschooling mum, surly she must have something to hide? Do you see the endless possibilities and scenarios?

[quote]Surveillance operations aimed at individual homes and businesses can last for months. Calderdale council in West Yorkshire began “direct covert surveillance” targeting one business in May that is still going on.

[/quote]

These surveillance operations aimed at individual homes can go on for months? really? Who puts limits on time lines?

[quote]Councils have used the RIPA to recruit children for surveillance operations. Dudley and County Durham exploited the Act to send children into shops with secret video and audio equipment to see whether they could buy cigarettes and alcohol. Officials in Durham have mounted 60 RIPA investigations against these kinds of businesses in the past 12 months.
[/quote]

They are using RIPA laws to recruit children for surveillance operations, not surprised but disgusted.

I hope after reading these two articles, you begin to see how such laws could be abused and more importantly could apply to our own circumstances?

It’s power in the hands of the people, but if there is no way to monitor it, or report these offences when they happen then that represents a serious failing on the part of the authorities that put the power there in the first place.

Keep the faith

I recently came across two articles that took me for a bit of a surprise.

I admit I was a little bit taken aback when I came across the articles. The articles much like the mind games article that came out over a year ago focus on people with delusions, but this one tries to take no prisoners, it tries to go for the juggler, however I would like to see it fail and be right back where it belongs.

It’s coming out around the time of the Mark M. Rich book, which I still think is well written and should be used to further what we are saying about what is happening to us. http://www.TheHIddenEvil.com

These articles are good because the Targeted Individual community needs to be aware of some of the obstacles we are going to be facing as we try bring more awareness about what is happening to us, to a main stream audience.

Here is an excerpt from the first article.

[quote]
Psychosis in the 21st century looks something like this: You think your every move is being filmed for a reality television show starring you, and that everyone in your life is an actor.

Or you think you are under intense surveillance by an army of spies, whom you refer to as the “www people,” as in the World Wide Web, and they wiretap your furniture and appliances.

Or else you refuse to drink water because you fear that another cup drawn from your faucet will, once and for all, deplete the world’s water supply.

Those thoughts are from three case studies of what psychiatrists interested in the intersection of mental illness, culture and society are calling, respectively, Truman Show delusion, Internet delusion and climate change delusion; all of them a window, through madness, into the modern world.
[/quote]
Just like the other article this in many ways is also a mind game.  Now don’t get me wrong, I am sure there are people in society that might be delusional etc, but we are a community of people who know what we are talking about. We not only know what we are talking about, but in the last two years, a great deal of research has come out to show the structures of these programs that are in place. Targets have started to expose this system of control and conformity and in many ways it’s doing what it has always done, it’s fighting back.

Just like any other time period the only way to fight back is with truth and light. For the few victories that we get, they will try to limit our success, we must not let them. The information is there, we just have to gather it and try to use it to our advantage. The more information we can gather about the programs that are in place the better we are.

Here are just a few things we have learnt over the last two years.

1.
We have learnt that the FBI has issued over thousands of Nation Security Letters to many individuals in society. We have learnt that of the thousands of National Security Letters issued, everyone received a gag order. They could not say anything without the penalty of going to jail. We now know that out of all those people that received those letters, those organisations, those entities that we are suppose to trust in many cases. Only a few fought back. To be correct I know of only three cases. One was the Internet Archive, the other was another online library, and the third was an ISP provider who won the case to not have to give up the information, but still has a life long gag order, and can not say anything to friends, family, co-workers etc.

http://epic.org/privacy/nsl/default.html

[quote]NSL Statistics
The Inspector General’s report detailed the FBI’s use of NSLs from 2003 to 2005. All of the below statistics were taken from this report.

Total number of NSL requests from 2000 (prior to passage of the Patriot Act): about 8,500.
Total number of NSL requests from 2003-2005 (after passage of the Patriot Act): 143,074.
2003: 39,346
2004: 56,507
2005: 47,221
Percentage of NSL requests generated from investigations of U.S. Persons:
2003: about 39%
2004: about 51%
2005: about 53%
Type of investigation connected to NSL requests (2003 through 2005):

Counterterrorism: 73.6%
Counterintelligence: 26%
Foreign Cyber Investigations: 0.4% [/quote]
Why have more people not tried to speak up and challenged the system? If everyone took the same steps that these three companies did, we would all be a lot further along.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/22/AR2007032201882.html

[quote]
Living under the gag order has been stressful and surreal. Under the threat of criminal prosecution, I must hide all aspects of my involvement in the case — including the mere fact that I received an NSL — from my colleagues, my family and my friends. When I meet with my attorneys I cannot tell my girlfriend where I am going or where I have been. I hide any papers related to the case in a place where she will not look. When clients and friends ask me whether I am the one challenging the constitutionality of the NSL statute, I have no choice but to look them in the eye and lie.
[/quote]
Similar types of gag orders may well be used with our friends, family, co-workers, and others to keep hushed.

In my research I have been lucky to have a couple people here and there share with me the fact that they can not say anything. I appreciate that. The way the companies are being silenced, many in society are being silenced the same way and don’t know how to fight back, they don’t have the resources to fight back, or really don’t want to against a system this powerful.Seeing what is happening to us, can leave people feeling complacent and fearful.

This is where we can help, they can not talk about what is happening in many cases, but we can. By researching and learning more, we can shine a light on what is happening. I have had a few people express their gratitude for this, but it’s not enough, I feel that we can do more. I believe we can each do our part, but we should realise our struggle is just as great as any other time period. The only difference is the face of our opposition. In the past the oppression was clearly laid out for us, this time it’s not as clear, but just as destructive.

With the National Security Letters the main thing that I have learnt is that if you do nothing, you will get nothing, if you fight back you might still not win, but at least you have a chance. These people fought back and they won.

San Francisco – The FBI has withdrawn an unconstitutional national security letter (NSL) issued to the Internet Archive after a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). As the result of a settlement agreement, the FBI withdrew the NSL and agreed to the unsealing of the case, finally allowing the Archive’s founder to speak out for the first time about his battle against the record demand.

2.
We have learnt a great deal about Community Oriented Policing programs. Many countries around the world not foster and host such programs. The community themselves identify problems that they see in the community, depending on what is happening, data is collected, sometimes a covert or overt investigation takes place, and then a solution is often presented.

http://www.amazon.ca/Community-Oriented-Policing-Systemic-Approach/dp/0130141100

[quote]
There is little doubt that this paradigm in policing has captured the attention of both citizen and police, mayors and police chiefs, state government and national government officials, and has worked its way into becoming a household name.
[/quote]
[quote]
A key debate within the central understanding of the systemic approach to policing is whether community-oriented policing is a philosophy or a program.
[/quote]

[quote]a systemic approach to policing with the paradigm of instilling and fostering a sense of community, within a geographical neighborhood, to improve the quality of life. It achieves this through the decentralization of the police and the implementation of a synthesis of three key components: (1) strategic-oriented policing—the redistribution of traditional police resources; (2) neighborhood-oriented policing—the .interaction of
police and all community members to reduce crime and the fear of crime through indigenous proactive programs; and (3) problem-oriented policing-a concerted effort to resolve the causes of crime rather than the symptoms.
[/quote]

These programs have been adapted in many countries around the globe. The structure and functionality of these programs are a potential match for some of what we have experienced.
3.
We have in the last two years learnt that it’s become a common workplace practice to silence outspoken workers, whistle blowers, etc with the threat of a psychiatric evaluations if they don’t stop being outspoken, often about legitimate issues.

http://www.harassment101.com/Article5.html

[quote]
On October 5, 1998, Norm Crosty sent a letter to the labor relationsdepartment at his plant. Crosty, for thirteen years an electrician at Ford Motor Company’s Wixom, Michigan, assembly plant, complained that he could not do his job because so many of his bosses were taking the necessary equipment out of the plant to work on their homes or personal businesses.

The next day, the plant director of human resources invoked a Ford program for combating workplace violence to bar Crosty from the factory and ordered him to see a company-paid psychiatrist or lose his job.

A little more than fourteen months later, and 725 miles away, officials at Emory University cited a similar concern about violence to justify using armed guards to escort Dr. James Murtagh off university property when Dr. R. Wayne Alexander, chairman of the department of medicine at Emory, ordered him to see a company-selected psychiatrist or lose his job. Six weeks earlier, Murtagh, a professor of pulmonology at Emory, had filed a false claims suit against the university, alleging that it had misspent millions of dollars in federal grant money. He claimed the university diverted money from research grants in order to pay for salaries and trips for administrators and some staff. The specific allegations were sealed by order of the federal judge.

Crosty and Murtagh don’t know each other. It is unlikely their worlds would ever intersect, but they have at least one thing in common. They both are victims of an increasingly popular employer weapon against whistleblowers: the psychiatric reprisal.
[/quote]
4.
we have learnt or at least I have learnt, that these are citizen informants doing this. I have on a personal level interacted with a few of them. I have personally provided dozens of articles about local programs, how they function, how they operate. I have spoken to at least two law enforcement officers who confirmed to me that this does exist, I have spoken to many others who deny any knowledge.

 

5.
Mark on his website has a great deal of information about the structure of these types of programs. It matches the structures that I had also found in my research. Federal programs with local appendages, and then communities taking part. Various countries around the world are adapting these models.
Recently I have started to investigate fusion centers. Fusion Centers are multi level government centers with several appendages, that will be in every American city, if they are not already.

http://www.aclu.org/pdfs/privacy/fusion_update_20080729.pdf

[quote]
If the federal government announced it was creating a new domestic intelligence agency made up of
over 800,000 operatives dispersed throughout every American city and town, filing reports on even the
most common everyday behaviors, Americans would revolt. Yet this is exactly what the Bush administration
is trying to do with its little-noticed National Strategy for Information Sharing, which establishes
state, local and regional “fusion centers” as a primary mechanism for the collection and dissemination
of domestic intelligence.
[/quote]
6.
I have also been researching the training of TLO’s. Terrorism Liaison Officers. Some great articles came out recently about these fire fighters, police officers, civil servants, Corporate Executives that are being trained to be the eyes and ears of the state. The information mentioned that they will be communicating in code.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU-xsQ3Xepw

http://www.denverpost.com/commented/ci_9732641

[quote]We’re simply providing information on crime-related issues or suspicious circumstances,” said Denver police Lt. Tony Lopez, commander of Denver’s intelligence unit and one of 181 individual TLOs deployed across Colorado.

“We don’t snoop into private citizens’ lives. We aren’t living in a communist state.”

Local watchdogs

Among recent activities the Colorado contingent detailed:

• Thefts of copper that could be used in bomb-making.

• Civilians impersonating police officers and stopping vehicles — of particular concern with the pending Democratic National Convention in Denver.

• Graffiti showing a man holding an AK-47 rifle.

• Men filming the Dillon dam that holds Denver’s water.

• Overheard threats.

• Widespread thefts of up to 20 propane gas tanks.
[/quote]

For me personally I have had a lot of things hitting closer to home. I really feel at this stage a lot of the information gathered is hitting closer to home than I had anticipated.

I feel this way, because there have been several recent attempts to take my website offline. There was one domain name stolen which was recovered, but the domain name was purposely targeted, and a domain name company appears to have possibly been complacent with the attempt to keep the domain name.

I have had someone that I believe was deliberately compromised.

I do begin to realise that it’s the same dirty tricks. We are a generation that is learning how the state operates. We are learning this again because as we have learnt in the last two years, when I say we, I mean you my audience who read my blogs. (I hope you do read my blog.) We have learnt that they have wiped out the leaders that have come before, they have run them into the ground, destroyed their lives, hopes dreams. Many of us are now experiencing the same opposition.

Unlike what has gone before, our opposition has primarily been silent and covert, with many of the people, the agencies, organisations, political leaders we should be able to trust unavailable. We have ourselves and we have a community that is making some headway, more than I realised. That’s good, but that also means the bag of dirty tricks are going to come out, and we do have to find a way to mount up some kind of resistance, or we can choose to just sit back and let them continue to do this.

For many of us, we have lost family, friends, jobs, careers, etc. Let’s not to the best of our abilities let them take anything else from us.

I do fully believe these people want us to feel that we are powerless. That we have to take this, that there is nothing better for us, but I don’t believe that. I do believe as ever they are worried that the truth will come to the surface. I believe it can, but more targets do need to step up to the plate. Use the resources that are there. Use the websites that speak the truth, the books, the articles. Do what we have been doing, but more of it.

We really do hang around ourselves a lot, we need to go out into the mainstream arenas and be able to have credible conversations. If you don’t know how to converse, start by posting a same quote from a site that you trust, or feel comfortable using. Start by asking if anyone has heard of Gang Stalking, Targeted Individuals?
Have a main stream discussion about Fusion Centers, community policing, community action, etc. Talking amongst ourselves is great, but they own and control the media and we have the Internet as our primary resource but not necessarily for that much longer.

We need to take the battle not just online, but offline to a degree. Even if it’s to hand out flyer’s saying, what is Gang Stalking? What are Targeted Individuals? Direct people to the websites, while we still can. Mark’s book is out. You can use that as an offline resource, but we must do what we can, for as long as we can, and as quick as we can.

Keep the faith, pray, meditate, fortify yourselves. We are up against some big odds, a corrupt society that is moving towards a very big agenda. We must do what we can.
