Petition the government to enforce minimum standards of protection and education of children in the 12 Tribes sect
The Spanish authorities should enforce minimum standards of protection and education of children in the sect of “The Twelve Tribes”
The combination of deprivation of compulsory schooling, forced labor, limited contacts with the “outside world” and intense “brainwashing” contains these children in a perverse the spiral of dependency. Countries like France, consider this messianic sect as dangerous, and in 2013 Germany withdrew custody of 40 children, while the state of New York enacted in 2004 by child labor. In Spain, Redune, the Association for the Prevention of Sectarian Handling, considered as “totalitarian and perverse with minors”, as is documented by Juantxo Dominguez, president and former members of this sect.
Given this outrageous situation of psychological and physical abuse children, and deprivation of education, and law enforcement and international child protection conventions, the Spanish authorities must also act decisively and quickly to the risk of transfer of these children to other sites sect outside Spain:
Prioramente, the Office of Children of San Sebastian to complete their investigation and to act with the Ministry of Education of the Basque Government to protect these children, ensure their rights to education and to punish their perpetrators;
Labour Inspectorate must act and punish this case of forced child labor;
The Council of Ecological Agriculture and Food of the Basque Country and the towns of San Sebastian and Irun should withdraw their licenses to their “Tribal Trading” commercial network to produce and sell products such illegal conditions.
Also, distributors and responsible citizens should stop buying in their stores as “Common Sense” in San Sebastián (C / Gral. Etxague 6) and Irun (Av. Letxumborro Hiribidea 102).
The persistence and impunity of these multiple and severe child abuse and exploitation, also in our neighborhood, is intolerable and must stop now! Sign the petition to demand a firm and swift action by the authorities because each support matters!

The 12 tribes do not abuse their children, the government of Germany clearly does not uphold it’s own constitution (supposedly upholding freedom of religion)as it wrongfully removed all the children under 18 years old in September of 2013 in the Klosterzimmern& Wornitz communities. I am friends with many of the people of those 2 communities and many of the children escaped or have been since returned to their parents, WHERE THEY belong. They most vertical do not deny them education as each and every child is educated by the community members designated training teachers. It is appealing to me to see false and exaggerate information still being reported as fact and circulated.
if you have more information then please link to it , it will be reported here. the facts some people are awre of is that some people were arrested and charged and convicted in germany. we all saw the video of a 6 month old getting hit, the child training manual says to hit the child 1200 times, the twelve tribes policey is for anyone even convicted pedophiles to hit any child as many times as anyone wants for any reason, two weeks ago, a report out of boston by a ex member reported they know their sister a 3 month old was hi. so please provide the german links and help us all to see the light. their was 2 years of media on this in germany . but if anyone trusts the twelve tribes opinion on how to rasie children that is their choice. it does violate every known law in canada, perhaps in germany it is different but then whey are twelve tribes members now in jail ? if something is confusing or controversial it deserves more time to study then to make simple one off comments. have u read their child training mannual ?
