Organized Stalking

For some years, cases are increasingly known in which people are harassed by organized stalking. In the process, individuals are persecuted by organized groups in their private lives and terrorized by various means. The term gangstalking originated in English-speaking countries.

Unlike traditional stalking, the goal of gangstalking is to psychologically wear down the target person. While the motivation in traditional stalking is more to conquer a spurned lover, the Gangstalker aim at the greatest despair of the target person. Through various sophisticated techniques, the target person in her personal environment is driven further and further into the corner until she finally stands isolated and usually completely helpless. When the target person searches for help within her circle of acquaintances, she often experiences incomprehension. Also, contacts with the police often end up with the advice of a psychologist.

The perpetrators have state-of-the-art technical equipment that allows them to monitor a person throughout the day. Both acoustic and optical monitoring takes place. The victims are monitored in their homes, jobs, recreational facilities, and other places of everyday life. As a result, almost all steps of the target person are predictable. All the steps on the Internet can also be tracked by the perpetrators. They have access to government agencies, telecommunications services, financial institutions, and post offices. The perpetrators have the ability to infiltrate and manipulate almost all areas of daily life.

Here are some aspects of Gangstalking be presented.


There are often burglaries in the lives of the target people. It is either broken into your own home or your own house, or the work spaces are entered. This can lead to vandalism, but usually no noticeable changes are made in the rooms. The burglaries take place without leaving a trace. Personal things are spatially changed, garments change the place, furniture is moved, cables or plugs are pulled out of the appropriate places. The changes are arranged so that the target persons themselves realize very well that someone has entered their rooms. Outwardly should not notice as much as possible, and above all, no evidence should be left. In his book “Gaslighting: How to Drive Your Enemies Crazy,” Victor Santoro describes the possibilities of driving a person mad through external interactions.

Street Theater:

One technique that is often used is the so-called street theater. The pursuers seek the proximity of the target person, and stage a scenario that is based on the content of the personal experience of the target person. At first the target person thinks that it has to be a coincidence, and that the experience is not related to their private life. But with repeated incidents the target person realizes that they are meant, and that these situations are arranged purposefully. It can happen that scenes from the private life of the target person to be played, that an inside joke is told, or that the behavior of the target person is gepätt. It can also happen that strangers pass the target person, honk, grimace, make faces, or grin. The street theater is often performed when the target person is alone and therefore without witnesses.


Many sufferers of Gangstalking experience daily acts of sabotage in their environment. It can bruise bicycle tires, computers are destroyed, various household appliances or manipulated or destroyed at work. The perpetrators always know exactly when the target person leaves their home, and can then gain access accordingly.

Computer manipulation:

In the case of those affected, manipulations of the computer, the Internet, or the fax machine often occur. Mails can be read, intercepted or changed. Drivers can uninstall themselves, programs can change their properties or their graphical interface. Mouse pointers can become self-contained and, as if by magic, circle the computer screen. Strange sounds are heard from the computer speakers, e.g. foreign radio stations or laughter.


To increase the persecution in all possible areas, the perpetrators also operate cyberstalking. At the same time, those affected are also being followed on the internet. When people register on forums, blog, or social networks, the perpetrators try to deride them, discredit them, or engage in conversations through fictitious stories. One tries to so confuse those affected, to mislead them, and to lead them to certain reactions. Often, those affected are confronted with things from their private lives. Since the perpetrators are well informed about the life habits of those affected, it is easy to signal to those affected by allusions that they are meant. For outsiders, it is not obvious that allusions to daily processes in the lives of the target persons are made. The target person himself, however, realizes very clearly that it is meant.

Who experiences gangstalking?

Gangstalking exists in Europe as well as in the US, Canada, and most emerging markets. From Third World countries so far no cases of gangstalking are known. Those affected can be political activists, whistleblowers, people who work in relevant political or economic areas, but also people who have rather average CVs. Many sufferers have nothing to do with politics or other relevant areas.

Who operates Gangstalking?

Among those concerned, opinions differ as to who is responsible for their persecution. Often people are recruited from the spatial environment of the target person. The scale, the high technical and human effort and the perfection indicate that behind the stalking actions are government agencies. Private mafias, criminal gangs and other private actors could hardly operate such a demanding organization. The financial burden is enormous, and can not be done by private individuals. The perpetrators are so well organized that they can seamlessly continue to monitor and terrorize even when traveling the target people easily anywhere.

In political circles, the concept of gangstalking has been known for some time. When many people in the 1970s felt that they belonged to the left-wing scene, when new political concepts and structures were tried out, and many young people began to organize themselves into political groups, secret services use the tool of gangstalking to purposefully spread fear and terror among the activists , The technical possibilities were not there at that time, but when young activists and members of political organizations were suddenly shadowed openly, or when they were regularly approached by unknown men who seemed to know everything about their private lives, some wondered if they had their own should continue to exercise political activity. The effect on the other group members did not miss their goal. In this way, some of the policy turned its back and disappeared into a more or less unpolitical existence.
