Garza Publicly accuses Ted Jaracz (current Governing Body member) of molesting
her as a child on the front steps of 25 Columbia Heights, Brooklyn, NY. Fifth
Estate Coverage of the March. CNN/Connie Chung Interview.
What to watch: The Fifth Estate (CBMT-6, 9 to 10 p.m. ) features Spiritual Shepherds,
an explosive full-length report hosted by Bob McKeown that reveals disturbing
allegations and evidence of sexual abuse of minors by elders of the Jehovah's
Witness Church in Canada and the United States .
interviews with abuse victims are heartbreaking and revealing, as they share
their s tori es of being shamed, shunned and ultimately exiled by a church hierarchy
more interested in keeping their allegations a secret than protecting defenseless
children from horrific acts of abuse that they allege.
a shocking, powerful program that's sure to make waves in the Church, the officials
of which refused to respond to the victims' allegations on camera, though not
for a lack of trying on the part of the tenacious McKeown and the Fifth Estate
team. The likely impact of this kind of report is precisely why it's essential
media organizations continue to devote the substantial time and resources required
to produce such important investigative journalism.
following material will be offered for thirty days only from the dates mentioned
- CBC video program the Fifth Estate-Filmed
2002 and released in February 2003, it shows the silentlambs march in Brooklyn
, NY . Also, extensive coverage of the Vic tori a Boer case in which she was
cheated out of her settlement after winning her case against Watchtower for
mishandling her childhood abuse. You can read about this at this link, http://www.silentlambs.org/education/wtinfo.cfm
- Letter written to all Canada Elders
in 1988 that showed instructions on how to properly handle abuse allegations.
Elders were instructed privately to do otherwise. This letter shows that it
was not ignorance that allowed child molestation to be unreported.
- Letter to all Canada congregations
that was sent out on May 24, 2002 in an attempt to defuse the Dateline and
CBC programs on abuse.

supporters after the march. Included are the first silentlambs courage award

over. This material has never been released and is very powerful to see.

clip of the interview with Heidi and Amber. This is the video where William
