RINJ - Rape is No Joke
RINJ Foundation Says 'Alleyway' Was 'Small Potatoes' Victory


Toronto - November 9, 2011 - Today the co-founder of RINJ, Micheal O'Brien, delivered a plenary session address to a closed RINJ conference and luncheon in west-end Toronto in which it was announced that the RINJ Foundation sees little significance in Facebook's turnabout decision to close down the widely publicised "Alleyway" community page.

The RINJ dot Org planning session was scheduled to map out the next best steps in the RINJ Foundation. In attendance were RINJ executive from Canada and the United Kingdom (by Video Conference) plus three observers from the media and two observers from interested organizations.

In closing the executive conference at 20:00 hrs GMT the following notes were delivered by the Chairman and released to the media.

Let's keep it real. As we said in our press release of October 24, 2011 (/release/oct24_2011.htm) the "Alleyway" is the least of our concerns.

Some of the internet content we are opposed to is about real rape, not humour. There are gangs of males organizing rave rapes by hunting out LG's (little girls); prepping them for the big party; drugging and raping them at the party while the events are video taped; and then publishing the videos on Facebook and elsewhere on other sites. It seems to take us forever to get these pictures and videos off Facebook.

Knowledge of these type of events inspired the two co-founders to create RINJ.org, not jokes.

We are talking about threats; eventual attempts; and actual rapes that are planned directly or indirectly on Facebook. We are not opposed to jokes about anything. We are opposed to sexual assault of women and children. we are opposed to rape.

We know what we are doing and we know what we are talking about or we wouldn't be volunteering our time. We ask for all manner of input but we remain steady on course in our goal of opposing sexual assault and rape in any incarnation, particularly the prolific endorsement of pro-rape internet content and the blatant profiteering on this misery brought to women and children.

Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) sets out: ...[Freedom of speech and expression may] "therefore be subject to certain restrictions" when necessary "for respect of the rights or reputation of others" or "for the protection of national security or of public order, or of public health or morals"

In short, do as you will, say what you want, but harm no one.

Rape is harmful. Rape is the fastest growing crime on planet earth.

Rapes are planned in Facebook groups, carried out and the bragging rights are later claimed in pictures and videos subsequently published on Facebook.

There is nothing about rape that is a joke although many people from among the 'great unwashed' seem to be laughing and many others seem to be screaming "freedom of speech".

Who are the "great unwashed"? In the last five years the income of 3% of the population rose 245%. Income of 97% rose a pittance of 18% while costs rose 28%. The "great unwashed" is the have-nots, the ones losing their homes (or already lost them); the working poor or those headed for that status. Who calls them the "great unwashed"? The 3% enjoying all the wealth (government officials, politicians, politicrats, system embeds, corporate leaders and so on). All of these people in that top 3% make their wealth on the backs of the 97%.

So many of the financial elite in modern society are people who are making millions from advertising placed on free internet content, rife with rape; kiddie-porn; child molestation; female objectification; sexual assault; sex trade; and worse. That's free content supplied by malcontents, sociopaths, perverts, rapists, paedophiles and losers. Where? Social networking sites like Facebook and YouTube.

You have all the freedom of speech you want until you do harm.

As global population passed the seven billion mark climbing rapidly toward eight billion, the disparity between the "haves" and the "have-nots" is enormous. Anger over this gap in prosperity levels is on the rise. Something else that is on the rise is rape and the objectification of women and children. Why? Because in an overpopulated world, women and children have become far less important. Pro-creation is not a priority; might even be a curse in some areas of Earth; and the rights of women and children are at risk among empathy-lacking two dimensional people.

At a time when some experts suggest the rate of sociopathy might have hit one out of three persons within certain cultures on Earth, the number of empathy-lacking people is seriously on the rise.

We see angry, hateful people disrespecting the rights and safety of women and children everywhere but for some reason, Facebook, an ungoverned corporation without moral compass and with only greed as its motivation, has, in cavalier fashion, come to bring grave risk of harm to 51% of the globes' population, it's women.

That harm is what we see and seek to end.

RINJ Foundation is an international organization based in Toronto and founded by persons in Canada, Britain and Australia.

RINJ seeks removal of web content condoning sexual assault and rape. Allowing this content on social networking sites further normalises a rape culture and the high instance of sexual violence in global society.
1) RINJ reports all inappropriate content to site owners and advertisers as well as law enforcement where that seems appropropriate. 
2) RINJ reports to advertisers any ads appearing on pro-rape, pro-child-molestation content pages and groups. 
3) RINJ promotes a global boycott of advertisers and their products advertised on pro-rape content pages.
