Rehtaeh Parsons, a 17-year-old from Halifax, Nova Scotia, hung herself in her family’s bathroom last week after photos of her gang rape were taken during the incident then distributed online by classmates. She fell into a coma. Rehtaech’s family pulled her off life support on Sunday, Buzzfeed reports.
Parsons was bullied relentlessly, with students sending texts such as, ‘Will you have sex with me?’ and ‘You’re such a slut.’ Parsons changed schools but the harassment continued, until she committed suicide thus ending the torment. Cue: Anonymous.
This is Canada’s Steubenville, where the system disregarded the victim.
Operation Justice For Rehtaeh —- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Anonymous engaged #OpJustice4Rataeh this morning in response to the suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons. Justice Minister Ross Landy says that it is important for Nova Scotians to have faith in their justice system. Mr. Landy, justice is in your hands.
Anonymous has confirmed the identities of two of the four alleged rapists. We are currently confirming a third and it is only a matter of time before the fourth is identified as well.
Our demands are simple: We want the N.S. RCMP to take immediate legal action against the individuals in question. We encourage you to act fast. If we were able to locate these boys within 2 hours, it will not be long before someone else finds them.
We do not approve of vigilante justice as the media claims. That would mean we approve of violent actions against these rapists at the hands of an unruly mob. What we want is justice. And That’s your job. So do it.
The names of the rapists will be kept until it is apparent you have no intention of providing justice to Retaeh’s family. Please be aware that there are other groups of Anons also attempting to uncover this information and they may not to wish to wait at all. Better act fast.
Be aware that we will be organizing large demonstrations outside of your headquarters. The rapists will be held accountable for their actions. You will be held accountable for your failure to act.
That is all
– We Are Anonymous.
The Corrupt Fear Us.
