When I was first subject to organised vigilante stalking as a student at Ulster University (Coleraine) 1970’s, I lived in the middle of a row of terraced cottages in Dhu Varren, at the edge of Portrush. It was the road out of town, and in a cul de sac, so you do not get passers by. I first got an indication that something funny was going on when my elderly neighbour, who had lived there all his life warned me that odd people were hanging about my flat, and staring into the window. This seemed to alarm the single woman who lived on the other side of me and she sold up and moved back to England. The elderly man became fearful and bought a guard dog.
I didn’t know what was happening. I only discovered the terms gang stalking and organised stalking a few months ago.
The harassment has continued ever since. And a major problem for targets is providing the evidence that prove they are being victimised.
I have already suggested that noise campaigns at least give the victim an opportunity to gain evidence over time that harassment is going on.
But something else occurred to me. At my place of work, Balham Sorting and Delivery Office, South London, where I worked until two years ago, my equipment kept breaking. My boss and co-workers knew I was being harassed so I had no repurcussions, but it occurred to me that having a digital camera, one which records the time when the photo was taken would be a cheap and effective way to record that the vandalising of your work tools is not being done by you. Simply photograph your equipment when you leave work at the end of the day. Chances are the vandalism will stop if you do this, as the gang stalkers do not wish to provide you with evidence.
