Harassment based on human rights occurs in one of the areas of jurisdiction defined by the Human Rights Code and is motivated by any of the grounds enumerated.
Any inappropriate or unpleasant behavior that may reasonably be anticipated or considered to offend or humiliate someone. Harassment is defined as words, gestures, or acts that irritate, alarm, abuse, humiliate, intimidate, belittle, or cause personal humiliation or shame to another; or that create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment. Harassment on the basis of race, religion, color, creed, ethnic origin, physical characteristics, gender, or sexual orientation is included. It might be a single occurrence or a series of occurrences. Harassment may be intentional, uninvited, and forceful. Harassment can occur both within and outside of the office, as well as during and after working hours.
Discrimination is a sort of harassment. Any unpleasant physical or verbal behavior that offends or humiliates you is included in this category. Harassment is defined as a pattern of behavior that continues over time. Harassment may also be defined as a series of serious one-time incidents.
Examples of Harassments Techniques
- Surveillance, which refers to the monitoring of individuals (being followed, electronic surveillance, computer and phone hacking, monitoring all online activities, and bugging of home)
- Profiles are created to identify any and all flaws or insecurities that might be utilised afterwards. Sexual relationships or trustworthy persons in their lives are frequently used to gain information.
- Conditioning where victims are sensitised to certain stimuli such as everywhere you go someone will cough as they walk past you. The goal is to make you self police and then think anyone who coughs is involved in the harassment. People report of conditioning to include hand gestures, an overt use of colour in peoples clothing (like everyone you see wearing red) or cars a certain colour or with headlights on (also known as brighting).
- Anchoring where someone will provide false rationales for the harassment. Often many possible rationales are planted to keep the victim confused and the focus of the harassment cycles from one possible reason to another round and around so as to keep the victim guessing in a self perpetuating guessing game where every scenario you are to blame and causes self doubt, fear, intimidation, and ultimately a cycle of destructive thoughts.
- Mobbing (or true gangstalking) where everywhere you go you will see an overt display of people following you and often use words you have been conditioned to or your name to draw your attention.
- Street theatre where a group will “perform” an overt activity like a fake confrontation or scenarios designed to test your reactions. Often takes the form of a couple who position themselves near you and then have a conversation using many of your conditioned words or pertaining to your particular situation and sensitivities.
- The use of directional speakers which have the ability to direct sound to a single individual in a crowded room. This particular item is ultimately the most used and is often referred to as V2K or Voice to Skull and is used extensively in the psychological breakdown of the victim. The use initially is to cause the victim to doubt their sanity and drive them into the mental health system, and later to just torment and never give the victim a moment of privacy or peace. If they do enter the mental health system, then harassment escalates dramatically as the victim has now been “discredited” and can be labeled as someone with a mental problem if they do speak out about the harassment.
- The use of electronics to alter your vision and balance, a technique known as “dazzling” that was initially designed for military and police crowd control and even the capacity to make you vomit.
- Sound campaigns, which are a kind of community harassment in which the victim and their house are subjected to unusually loud sounds. Cars deliberately breaking or accelerating when passing, people talking excessively loudly at all hours of the night, sound amplification using directional speakers so that external sounds that couldn’t be heard before can now be heard, garbage trucks and other heavy vehicles, and countless other deliberate tactics are all examples.
- Sleep deprivation is one of the most insidious techniques applied, in which victims are awoken many times during the night and kept awake for days at a time. The effects are dramatic and completely incapacitating, affecting concentration, mood, irritability, appearance, and significantly affecting all aspects of their lives – job performance, relationships, and significantly aiding in the victim’s discrediting as they appear unorganized, disheveled, and sleeping patterns change, causing them to sleep during the day (when noise campaigns are more effective) and be awake at night (where they can be painted as the one making noise and being a disruptive member of the community).
- Baiting or entrapment is when a victim is harassed to the point that they lash out and conduct a crime, such as assault, break-in, or vandalism, in order to find out who is harassing them. Harassers will try to cause verbal and physical conflicts, especially if they haven’t had enough sleep. Alternatively, they may be persuaded to engage in an activity that may be used as leverage, such as affairs, sexuality, drug usage, or other illegal conduct.
- Gaslighting is a type of psychological abuse in which someone consciously seeks to weaken victims by instilling doubt in them, causing them to lose all self-confidence and self-esteem, making them easier to control and push down the mental health road. It may be as simple as being told something they deny, then telling them how stupid they are for believing they said it, and turning the untruth into a personal assault. It may be extremely successful if it comes from a trustworthy source and occurs before the victim realizes what is going on.
- The phrase “blackbag jobs” refers to when a harasser enters a victim’s home and places or moves things on purpose. The goal is to instill dread in people’s minds that their property is being accessed, which harassers try to pass off as paranoia.
- Because its effectiveness requires the victim to be unaware of the existence of gangstalking, gaslighting, or electronic technologies such as directional speakers, huge amounts of time are devoted online to creating disinformation sites that attempt to discredit victims by pushing the mental health agenda, propaganda and disinformation are also key elements in suppressing knowledge of this practice. They accomplish this by impersonating as victims and attempting to seem insane in order for all victims to be treated as such. Also, by creating websites that pretend to assist victims and serve as a resource for victims to gather together, and then tormenting them to the point that they lose hope and no longer seek help, further isolating them.
- In addition to the foregoing, gangstalkers rely on disbelieving and discrediting, and as a result, most of the harassment is structured to resemble mental health disorders (at least at first). They also rely on their abuse being so severe, pervasive, and fundamentally immoral that victims resort to photographing, videotaping, and sound recording their daily encounters in order to disprove the countless unfounded claims made against them – particularly in the case of gaslighting, which gangstalkers try to portray as paranoid or irrational. Victims are made to feel powerless since every effort at self-defense is turned against them, and when they seek assistance, they are met with incredulity or open hatred.
