Return to Dossier of Attacks on the AVN

Violent snuff images sent to members of the AVN’s Facebook page

Several people who have been involved with Stop the AVN have chosen to use pornography as their weapon of choice. There was only one time when the perpetrator of this pornography was able to be identified and in that instance, it was an employee of a vaccine manufacturer in Western Australia.

This person sent several extremely violent pornographic images (the AVN management committee has copies of one of these images along with the information about who had sent them, but we will not post the image here) to members of the AVN’s Facebook page. The recipient of one of these images brought them to her professor at university. This is a person who teaches about the negative effects of violent pornographic images in society. Despite his long experience in dealing with these sorts of things, he told this young woman that she could have been charged with an offence just for bringing the pictures to him and they were among the worst he had ever seen. This particular picture depicts a sexual act with a mutilated corpse, the details of which are far too graphic to describe in detail.

This young woman and another two recipients of these images complained to the police about the person who sent them this filth; they complained to Facebook and they also complained to the offender’s employer – as we said – this was a vaccine manufacturer. None of these organisations pursued the sender of these images nor was their account with Facebook even suspended.

Pornographic images sent to Meryl Dorey’s home

Approximately 18 months ago, Meryl Dorey, President of the Australian Vaccination Network, received 3 letters over a period of 2 weeks. These letters were sent to her home address – not to the AVN’s post office box. All 3 letters had similar messages and images to the one you can see below (we have blacked out the image and one of the words but as you can most likely imagine, the image was of a part of the female anatomy). The police were provided with these letters and said they would try to get fingerprints from them. After months of trying to follow up with the police without any response, Ms Dorey was finally informed that no fingerprints could be found and the police would return the letters. When she received the letters back, there were only 2 – the police had lost one.
