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!
