Truro women working to end non-state torture
Lynn Curwin March 14, 2017
….In the Canadian Criminal Code there’s no law against ‘non-state torture.’ While some feel aggravated assault is suitable for dealing with such cases, the women disagree.
“Without saying it in words they’re pretty well saying that non-state torture is not as important as state torture,” said MacDonald. “People wouldn’t feel it fit to call state torture assault.”
There are places, including France, Queensland (Australia) and California, that have brought in legislation addressing non-state torture.
“There are no centres for rehabilitation for the survivors; that’s something that’s lacking all over the world,” said MacDonald. “We’re making some progress and we’ll keep at it until there’s a shift.”
She and Sarson formed Persons Against Non-State Torture and address issues including trafficking and ritual abuse-torture.
They don’t think people understand that non-state torture isn’t something that only happens in third world countries or large cities.
“It’s happening around us,” added MacDonald. “No country has evolved enough that we’re not harming one another and there’s no such thing as a day off when you’re an activist.” http://www.trurodaily.com/news/local/2017/3/14/truro-women-working-to-end-non-state-torture.html

Friday May 30, 2014 Hidden Horrors Posted by Christina Harnett
This week the CBC’s Angela MacIvor brings us a project in conjunction with CBC Investigates.
It’s about two nurses from Truro, Nova Scotia who began counselling victims of what they call “non-state torture” about twenty years ago. Now they want the Criminal Code changed to recognize what they say those victims are facing. http://www.cbc.ca/atlanticvoice/

Canada: Non-State Torture (NST) Girls & Guns – This article by Jeanne Sarson and Linda MacDonald highlights how parent(s), guardians, and spouses are among the non-state actor torturers with guns and bullets in their arsenal of tools.
Since 1993, Jeanne Sarson MEd,
BScN, RN and Linda MacDonald MEd, BN, RN, have been relationship educators and human rights defenders working with persons who have experienced various forms of relational torture, including ritual abuse-torture.
Canadian child pornography, gun usage, criminal harassment and drug offence crimes has increased(1), with sexualised violence within families four times higher for girls than for boys(2). This criminal data becomes a relational mix of daily terrorisation, torture and horrification for girls in families/groups who derive pleasure from inflicting Non State Torture (NST). Since 1993, over 2000 contacts with women mostly, from Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe, the U.S.(3) and Canada(4) disclose similar NST victimisation inflicted since infancy or soon thereafter.

Spillover Torture from the Military/Warring Sphere into the Private Sphere: Making Visible a Silenced Human Rights Violation and Victimized Persons’ ‘Body Talk’
by Jeanne Sarson and Linda Macdonald, June 2, 2011

….Spillover into the private sphere of pedophilic torture against girls by perpetrators with warring or military experiences For us, raising this question began to emerge 18 years ago, when faced with the reality that pedophilic torture victimization was occurring in the so-called private or domestic sphere perpetrated by non-state actors, some who had military or warring experiences.
Some of these torturers were also parents and extended inter-generational family members who were connected to like-minded others. For some women, so tortured as girls, they believed the horrors of war were contributing factors that led to the pedophilic torture they suffered in childhood…..
Web survey, pedophilic NST, ritualisms & military connections
• 90% (142 out of 157) of survey respondents were female
• 62% (96 out of 155) indicated their victimization occurred between 1946-1975
• 37% (57 out of the 155) stated victimization was after 1976 into the present
• 62% (96 out of 155) indicated perpetrators were military members, veterans, or civilian military employees
• 77% (120 out of 155) indicated perpetrators were male & female officers & other ranks
• 63% (97 out of 154) were trafficked, within their own country, or into one or more other countries.
(Sarson & MacDonald, 2009)
….media reports reveal that the manufacturing of pedophilic sexualized violence images occurs in Canada and some is interfamilial and homemade. One Canadian report that assessed 4,110 pedophilic images taken from 15,662 websites hosting child pornography showed (Canadian Centre for Child Protection, 2009)
….These examples provide a brief insight into how unexpressed past victimization and traumatization pain and suffering create present day real body memory pain – real body talk – but as real as the physical body talk pain is experienced it is generally not relieved with pain medication. It is relieved when she has succeeded to process the remembered torture ordeal.

Breaking the silence about non-state torture (NST)
I am a person who survived non-state torture in private settings in childhood. I speak and use my writing and art-work to raise awareness and educate about non-state torture including ritual abuse-torture, child trafficking, and organised ritualised pedophilia.
I dream of seeing human rights recognition of non-state torture in private settings for all persons. Torture in domestic/private settings is a genderised violence. All persons, and particularly women, women who when they were girls, and children who have endured torture victimisation in this way, are invisiblised in our world. http://www.artprintsnst.net
April 18, 2011 Comments Off on SYBIL In Her Own Words: The Untold Story of Shirley Mason, Ritual Abuse Torture
“SYBIL In Her Own Words: The Untold Story of Shirley Mason, Her Multiple Personalities and Paintings” by Patrick Suraci, Ph.D.
SYBIL is a new book about Shirley Mason who had 16 personalities. It tells the story of her life after her cure depicted in the book SYBIL and TV movie starring Sally Field. This book contains paintings by 5 of Sybil’s alternate personalities. The author’s interviews with Shirley Mason report her own words and her new whole personality. (video of Dr. Suraci explaining the book.)
“SYBIL In Her Own Words: The Untold Story of Shirley Mason, Her Multiple Personalities and Paintings” by Patrick Suraci, Ph.D. presents evidence refuting Dr. Spiegel’s claim to have hypnotized Shirley Mason. Dr. Suraci discovered an audio cassette where Ms. Mason and Dr. Cornelia Wilbur, her therapist, discuss how it was impossible for Dr. Spiegel to hypnotize Shirley, because she did not trust or like him.

Born May 31, 1936 in Rochester, New York, Patrick Suraci received his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Assumption College, University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the New School for Social Research, New York in 1981.
His latest work, Sybil In Her Own Words: The Untold Story of Shirley Mason, Her Multiple Personalities and Paintings is being launched at Book Expo America at the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City on May 24, 2011….Dr. Suraci was a Staff Psychologist for the New York Police Department and is now in private practice in Manhattan. He has taught at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Baruch College at the City University of New York.
Sybil In Her Own Words: The Untold Story of Shirley Mason, Her Multiple Personalities and Paintings
Dr. Suraci developed a friendship with Shirley Mason (Sybil) after she was cured from Multiple Personality Disorder. She gave him personal effects and paintings made by five of her personalities which all appear in the book. He discovered evidence to disprove the critics who were attempting to attack the veracity of her case.

Dr. Leah Dickstein, who worked with Mason in her later years, stands by her assessment of Mason as a multiple. Professionals and staff at Wilbur’s Lexington, Kentucky clinic confirm that Mason was multiple, and that she attempted to integrate several times, without success. Dr. Leah Dickstein, whose mentor was Dr. Wilbur
Dr. Dickstein also stated that she was in touch with Mason for many years after Wilbur died. She remembers Mason telling her that “every word in the book is true.” She stated that Wilbur had “no need to make this up.” Ritter, Malcolm Doubt Cast on Story of `Sybil’ AP 8/16/98

“In fact, from my perspective, it is Rieber who has distorted the evidence to establish his case. For example, the appendix includes a long letter which includes a short section in which Sybil refers to having written something to the effect that she had made up everything about being a multiple personality, but this was presented in her letter in the context of trying to find a way of not needing Dr. Wilbur. Rieber calls this a “letter of denial” of MPD/DID. There are many more instances in which Rieber misrepresents the material in the appendix to support his case.”
Persons Against NST Non-State Torture Including
Ritual Abuse-Torture (RAT) have a new website at http://nonstatetorture.org/
We work from a human rights, relational feminist perspective. All forms of non-state torture (NST) are a violation of the victimized persons human rights as stated in international human rights instruments such as UDHR, CAT, CEDAW, ICCPR and CRC. Perpetrators of NST, like all torturers, goal is the destruction of the victimized person’s sense of personhood, therefore, our relational perspective is aimed at helping individuals so victimized to reclaim and empower their relationship with/to/for Self.
There are many forms of NST, such as ritual abuse-torture (RAT), child torture, spousal torture, relational torture, acculuraltural, and combinations of all of these, such as enduring torture – NST – when being trafficked. These realities are all found in our writings, our educational materials and our presentations. http://nonstatetorture.org/about/
