"What is Gang Stalking?" posted 2008-01-03 to [http://gangstalkingworld.wordpress.com/2008/01/03/what-is-gang-stalking/]
Stalking is a systemic form of control, which seeks to control every
aspect of a Targeted Individuals life. Gang Stalking has many
similarities to workplace mobbing, but takes place outside in the
community. It called Gang Stalking, because the target is followed
around and placed under surveillance by groups of organised Civilian
Many Targeted Individuals are harassed in this
way for months or even years before they realise that they are being
targeted by an organised protocol of harassment.
What happens during
Gang Stalking is very similar to what happened to many innocent
individuals in the former East Germany or Activists and Dissidents in
Russia. Many innocent people in the former East Germany would be
targeted for these harassment programs, and then their friends, family,
and the community at large would be used to monitor, prosecute, and
harass them. In Russia it was used by the state to declare activist,
dissidents or anyone they thought to be an enemy of the state as
mentally unfit and many were institutionalised using this form of
The closest thing to Gang Stalking that democratic
countries have seen before is McCarthyism, Cointelpro, and RED SQUAD
programs. Red Squad programs were used for monitoring, and harassment of
various groups and they have been in place for over a hundred years.
spies are recruited from every level and sector of society. Just like
with Cointelpro investigations, everyone in the targets life is made a
part of this ongoing never ending systemic form of control and
harassment. These actions are specifically designed to control the
target and to keep them in line. These actions are also designed to
destroy the target over years, make them look crazy and leave them with
no form of support.
For the targets of this harassment, Gang Stalking
is experienced as a covert psychological, emotional and physical
attack, that is capable of immobilizing and destroying a target over
time. For the state it’s a way to keep the targets in line, control
them, or destroy them.
Worldwide programs of control and conformity
have been used with equal success and lethality. What we are seeing now
is a global co-ordinated and organised effort of control and conformity.
Reports of Gang Stalking are not only coming in from democratic
countries, but they are coming in from many other countries as well.
modern day systemic form of control could only be funded at higher
governmental levels, just like it has in other societies where these
similar types of harassment programs have been implemented. It’s all
part of a system of control and conformity that has been in place for
many years. A system of control with many local groups and appendages
What are other Names for Gang Stalking?
many names for this form of systemic control and harassment. Under the
Gang Stalking label you will also find such terms as Organised Stalking,
Cause Stalking, Multi-Stalking, Community Mobbing, but it’s all part of
the same harassment protocol. What many people do not realise is that
Gang Stalking is just one appendage of this systemic form of control.
There are other forms of control used to repress, and keep individuals
in line. Other forms or appendages include, but are not limited to:
Mobbing, Cointelpro, The Buzzsaw, Covert War, Electronic Harassment,
etc. These are the just some of the names being given to a very old
game, that is once again being played by governments on their
How are targets chosen?
Targets can be
chosen because of many reasons. They can be chosen for political views.
They can be chosen for whistle-blowing. They can be chosen because they
belong to a dissident movement. They can be chosen because they
asserted there rights at work. They can be chosen because they made the
wrong enemy. Were considered to be too outspoken, unwittingly
investigated something that the state did not want investigated, signed a
petition, wrote a letter. They were deemed as suspicious by a civilian
spy/snitch and their names were handed over.
It’s becoming apparent
that targets might be chosen for this systemic form of control, if they
are not already in some way a part of this controlled system. Eg. Many
Targeted Individuals seem to be unaware that large chunks of our society
are snitching and spying on each other.
What are the goals of Gang Stalking?
goal is to isolate the target from all forms of support, so that the
target can be set up in the future for arrest, institutionalisation, or
forced suicide. Other goals of this harassment is to destroy the targets
reputation and credibility. Make the target look crazy or unstable.
goals involve sensitizing the target to every day stimuli’s as a form
of control, which is used to control targets when they get out of line.
people also want to make the targets of this harassment vulnerable,
they want to make them destitute. The secondary goals seem to be to make
the target homeless, jobless, give them a breakdown, and the primary
goals seems to be to drive the target to forced suicide, just like what
they did with some of the targets of Cointelpro. It’s a useful way of
eliminating perceived enemies of the state.
Who gets targeted?
can happen to anyone in society. Primary targets in the past have been
but are not limited to: minorities, outspoken individuals, whistle
blowers, dissidents, people who go up against large wealthy
corporations, woman’s groups, (single) women, anti-war proponents, and
other innocent individuals. The majority of the targets are often not
aware that they are being targeted in this way. When a target moves,
changes jobs, the harassment still continues. Every time the target
moves, the same lies and slander will be spread and the systemic
harassment will continue.
Who takes part?
People from all
walks of life are being recruited to be the eyes and ears of the state.
People from all races, ages, genders. Every sector of society that you
can think of is a part of this. Civilian Spies/Snitches include, but are
not limited to: General labourers, the wealthy, bikers, drug dealers,
drug users, street people, punks, hip hop culture, KKK, black activists,
church groups, youth groups, Firemen, police officers, lawyers, health
care workers, store keepers, maids, janitors, cable installers, phone
repair persons, mail carriers, locksmiths, electricians, etc. There
really is no minimum or maximum age range.
Some of these citizens
might be recruited via programs such as, Citizen Corp, Weed and Seed,
Citizens On Phone Patrol, (COPP), City Watch, T.I.P.S. Many started with
good intentions to help patrol and monitor their cities and
neighbourhoods. Others are recruited via their families, others at
school, others at work. Since every sector, class, race in society takes
part, recruitment is multi-faceted.
Many do not understand or care that the end consequence of this harassment protocol is to destroy a person.
Why people participate in Gang Stalking?
There are many reasons that someone takes part in this activity.
1. Some do it for the sense of power that it gives them.
Others do this as a way to make friends and keep friends. It’s
something social and fun for them to do. Many in society use the one
handed sign language to communicate and it’s very effective in breaking
down race, gender, age, social barriers.
3. Others are forced or black mailed by the State or the police into taking part.
They are told that they are part of homeland or national security and
being used to help keep and eye on dangerous or emotionally disturbed
individuals. They see themselves as heroic spies for the state.
spies can come from a variety of different programs such as the Citizen
Corp, Citizen On Phone Patrol COPP, Weed and Seed, T.I.P.S., City Watch
or some other centralized government program used for patrolling and
5. Others are just local thugs or Informants who
are already being used for other activities, and their energies are just
diverted over into these community spy programs. Eg. Some may be given
the choice of Spying for the State or the police vs going to jail.
6. Others are told outright lies and slander about the target to get them to go along with ruining the targets life.
Many are however just average citizens who have been recruited by the
state the same way citizens were recruited in the former East Germany
and other countries. It’s the way the society is.
What are some techniques used against targets?
A few of the most common techniques are listed below.
a) Classical conditioning.
a Targeted Individual sensitized to an everyday stimuli. The targeted
individual over a period of months, or even years is negatively
sensitised to an everyday stimuli, which is then used to harass them.
It’s used out in public to let them know they are constantly being
harassed and monitored. Some examples of everyday stimulus that might be
used include: sounds, colors, patterns, actions. Eg. Red, white,
yellow, strips, pens clicking, key jangling, loud coughing, loud
whistling, loud smacking of clapping of hands together, cell phones,
b) 24/7 Surveillance
This will involve following the target everywhere they go. Learning
about the target. Where they shop, work, play, who their friends and
family are. Getting close to the target, moving into the community or
apartment where they live, across the street. Monitoring the targets
phone, house, and computer activity.
c) Isolation of said target.
is done via slander campaigns, and lies. Eg. People in the targets
community are told that the target is a thief, into drugs, a prostitute,
pedophile, crazy, in trouble for something, needs to be watched. False
files will even be produced on the target, shown to neighbours, family,
d) Noise and mimicking campaigns.
targets life, sleep with loud power tools, construction, stereos, doors
slamming, etc. Talking in public about private things in the targets
life. Mimicking actions of the target. Basically letting the target know
that they are in the targets life. Daily interferences, nothing that
would be too overt to the untrained eye, but psychologically degrading
and damaging to the target over time.
e) Everyday life breaks and street theatre.
tires, sleep deprivation, drugging food, putting dirt on targets
property. Mass strangers doing things in public to annoy targets. These
strangers might get text messaged to be at a specific time and place,
and perform a specific action.
It might seem harmless to these
strangers, but it could be causing great psychological trauma for the
target. Eg. Blocking targets path, getting ahead of them in line,
cutting or boxing them in on the road, saying or doing things to elicit a
response from targets. Etc.
Where does the support or funding for this come from?
Gang Stalking itself is immoral and unethical in nature, programs such
as this in democratic countries, and none democratic countries have
always been funded by the Government. They are the only ones with enough
money, coordination, and power to keep such a system in place. These
Co-ordinated efforts then join hands with others for this systemic form
of control and harassment.
“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.”
What can you do to help?
If you know someone who is being targeted in this way please don’t go
along with it. Don’t assume that the person is guilty or a bad person.
Many innocent people are currently being targeted, and people are being
told lies. This form of harassment is systemic and it’s about state
control and conformity. The express goal of this harassment is to
destroy the individual over time.
2. If you are aware of someone
being harassed in this way, subtly direct them to websites that deal
with Gang Stalking, or sites for Targeted Individuals. Knowledge is
3. You can subtly offer your support to someone who is being unfairly treated, in very small little ways.
4. You can bring up the subject of Gang Stalking or Targeted Individuals.
You can subtly suggest that your local newspapers or community papers
print articles about Targeted Individuals or even an write an objective
piece about Gang Stalking.
How do participants communicate?
Communication happens in a number of ways. When on the street or in cars patrolling, they use baseball or Stasi like signals.
include things like tapping the side of the nose, corner of the eye,
brushing back the hair 3 times, the infamous double blink, etc.
Here is a list of Stasi signals that the East German Army use to use. Stasi secret police. [http://www.nthposition.com/stasiland.php]
SIGNALS FOR OBSERVATION
1. Watch out! Subject is coming – touch nose with hand or handkerchief
2. Subject is moving on, going further, or overtaking – stroke hair with hand, or raise hat briefly
3. Subject standing still – lay one hand against back, or on stomach
4. Observing Agent wishes to terminate observation because cover threatened – bend and retie shoelaces
5. Subject returning – both hands against back, or on stomach
Observing Agent wishes to speak with Team Leader or other Observing
Agents – take out briefcase or equivalent and examine contents.
