Areas to be aware of when studying Gang Stalking.
It's our nearest and dearest cousin on an emotional and psychological level. The methodology used in workplace mobbing is some of the same that we see happening with Gang Stalking.
Awareness is slowly growing in the U.S. and in Canada about the darker side of work and the devastating effects that mobbing and bullying can have on the self, health, organizations and society. Our colleagues in North America, though still rather few, do their part to contribute to the growing interest. For example: Three conferences on the topic have been organized in the U.S. since 2000, in California, Massachusetts and Iowa; the Department of Environmental Quality for the State of Oregon has established the first anti-mobbing policy in the U.S.; efforts to add new anti-mobbing legislation are under way in California, other states and in Canada; and several new Internet self-help and advice groups and websites address specific professional groups or aspects of incivility at work. In the aftermath of the Columbine and other school shooting tragedies, the media has increasingly discussed bullying in the schools, thus also raising awareness of adult bullying/mobbing in the workplace.
The Snitching system
Websites such as http://www.November.org are doing a really nice job of showing the world the other side of snitching and its true affect on society.
Also Alexandra Natapoff has done some wonderful research into the wider and more influential issues of the Informant system and how it's affecting members of some communities. In some areas, over 50% or more of ethnic communities had been inducted into becoming police informants, both men and women.
From what I have seen, the numbers are higher than this and it's no longer limited to the communities focused on in her research.
Community Based Policing
This method of policing is changing how societies think, react and interact. It's basically turning our communities into societies like they have in China, and had in Russia or East Germany. There is a U.N. agenda called 2020 that seeks to adapt this model for every country in the world by 2020.
"Ruling the community with an iron fist. "Savvy law enforcement types realized that under the community policing rubric, cops, community groups, local companies, private foundations, citizen informants and federal agencies could form alliances without causing public outcry." Covert Action Quarterly, summer 1997."
American communitarians promote the same kinds of surveillance and neighborhood informants the communists used to control East Germans. Americans are slowly being taught what East Germans had to learn very quickly. Today the KGB trains "community" police all over America. Our friendly neighborhood cops are saving our communities from criminals and terrorists.
When I tried to follow up on some of the research that "Norma" over at gangstalking.ca had done in conjunction with crisis center, I found out that these are some of the places that targets were turning to for help. Before the Gang Stalking websites were available, women and to a much smaller extent, men were calling the crisis centers, more specifically the Rape Crisis Center to get some help or to find anyone who knew about Gang (Organised) Stalking.
