Anonymous Starts #OpMaryville And Here’s How You Can Help Daisy Coleman

facebookdaisyToday is one of those days that I absolutely love the Internet. Yesterday morning very few people were aware of the horrific case involving a then 14-year-old girl and her 13-year-old friend who were raped at a party and by last night, the story was on CNN and numerous media outlets were covering it. Thousands of people are now asking what they can do to have justice served in this case.

There is a facebook page located here.

There is a Justice For Daisy Twitterstorm that starts today. The information for this is located here.

There is an Indiegogo fundraiser set up here. Please note, that I can’t confirm the origins of who started this, so proceed with caution until I can update. I’d like to have full confirmation the funds are going directly to the Coleman family.

There is a peaceful protest scheduled for October 22 at the Nodaway County Courthouse in Maryville, Missouri. Organizers ask that you carry daisies.

A Tweet states that donations should be made to the local KC animal shelter.

The 13-year-old victim in the case, Paige, has now had her own mom come forward:

I will update more when I have more information, and if you have a confirmed link you want me to post please let me know.

 I have said this before but I think it bears repeating here. We are all Anonymous. Anyone who cares about cases like Daisy Coleman‘s, anyone who cares about people who need help in this world, you don’t need a mask or to be a hacker to do the right thing. You can write letters, you can attend protests, you can donate when you are able, you can compose a Tweet with the hashtags #OpJusticeForDaisy or #OpMaryville. You can share information on your Facebook page. You can teach your sons not to rape and you can teach your daughters to look out for their friends.

There is a lot of support for the Coleman family, and there would have been just as much support had people been aware of this case two years ago. With this being said, if you or someone you know encounters anything like this you need to let people help you. Anonymous aren’t just some young dudes behind computer screens. They are lawyers and doctors and law enforcement officials and little old ladies and students and moms and   government officials and advocates. This is a case where we are all Anonymous. Every time a case like this is made public, it’s one less Steubenville, one less Audrie Pott, one less Rehtaeh Parsons. This is what I want for my kids and yours.

      Yessss!

    Thanks for the mention, although recently we’ve decided that since the house that they lost wasn’t their primary residence, our donations are going to be limited to letters of support and comfort. This is, of course, unless we hear otherwise.

    And jeez, she had to go and ask us to donate to the animal shelter instead of her family. I love this kid and hate that she’s going through this. Let’s Steubenville the shit out of Maryville.

      No desire to make more work for you, but those donations of blankets and such would go a long way at a domestic violence shelter.

      That’s no trouble at all, it’s just that several other organizations have addressed the problem and do a great job annually of making sure that everyone at our local shelters have a warm and comfortable winter season. :) Very good thinking, though!

      hey do you have updated info and I can change my screenshots? if you wanna comment exactly what you wanna do and where people should do it!

    • http://anniedeezy.tumblr.com/ Annie

      “Today we’ve decided that since the fire took place at their non-primary residence, donations should consist of letters of support and comfort for Daisy and her family. It goes without saying that if news comes out that they need help getting through the winter season, we’ll go back to requesting essentials.

    I am so glad Anonymous is bringing the hell fire…and that these two young girls now know they have an incredible network of people that believe and support them. I hope they get the justice they deserve. Go Anonymous and Go Eve!!!

  • keelhaulrose

    There’s a lot of loosely-connected organizations out there I like, even if I don’t agree with everything all their members do. As a whole I like Christians and find them good people, even if I can’t stand what a few (extremely vocal) of them do.
    The more I read about what Anonymous is doing, the more I’m loving them. A few bad eggs won’t spoil the batch for me.
    Rape victims deserve justice. Full stop.

      I hear ya, I am even fond of the loose cannons because the troll the hell out of people like Hunter Moore which is always magical to me. It’s like any group, you have amazing lovely people and some weirdos, but the ones I have dealt with are always pretty wonderful.

    I’m glad there’s something we can do, because the state can’t do (won’t?) do anything… http://www.komu.com/news/mo-ag-says-office-can-t-reopen-teen-assault-case/

    The Yelp page for AG Restaurant (family restaurant of rapist) was besieged with comments.

    Woke my wife up a couple of times snortling.

  • hyc

    Well, I donated on IndieGogo before I read the note about the pet shelter, but all of the Indiegogo funds are supposed to be redirected there anyway. Everything around this story sucks, but massive props to the Colemans for their strength in enduring all of this as a family.

    A few weeks after I started college, I went on a 3rd date with a guy I’d just met. He told me that my favorite show was the same as his, and that I should bring the DVDs over to watch. I was so excited! He offered me a drink when I got there (he was over 21 so that seemed cool.) I remember about 15 minutes of the first episode. Woke up in my dorm with no purse or underwear. Apparently he left me on a bench on campus. Two high school friends happened to see me, and brought me to my dorm. The assault that these guys in Maryville inflicted on Daisy is horrifying . Leaving her outside like a piece of trash makes me even more nauseated. Being assaulted, and left like you’re disposable creates so much shame and self hatred. This is the first time I’ve ever told anyone other than my few closest friends about my assault. Sadly, and I truly hate to say this, but seeing how Daisy was treated, makes me glad I stayed quiet. I have to commend Daisy for being braver than me, especially when I see that my attacker is engaged now…and all I can think of is that another woman is marrying that sick monster.

      WHAT THE FUCK.

      DUDE.

      I’m SO sorry that happened to you, it was unspeakably unjust and I have no words. Sending some major love your way. xxo

    • Kb

      Thank you, very much. I’m lucky that I’ve been able to grow through the experience, and I’m surrounded by people who let me know that I have value to offer to the world around me. Not everyone has that support- and it’s even tougher on very young girls who are just starting to find their place in the world. So I’m going to pass your love on to them. I hope no one feels defined by their assault, or that they don’t have value. More so, I hope one day I’ll live in a world without rape at all!

    • http://anniedeezy.tumblr.com/ Annie

      That’s the perfect thing to hope for. <3

      So glad to hear that you're doing well.

    • Stacey

      KB, I’m sorry. I do hope you’ll at least speak to a campus advisor. Honey, you weren’t the first, and I you won’t be the last until he’s stopped.

      It was about 6 years ago, so I’ve since graduated. He was just there for that summer, as a visiting student from another country. However, I’ve always been a fan of counseling, therapy, and running, so that’s been my help over the years. I was in denial that he did anything wrong, and assumed it was my fault for so long that it took a long time to accept it, and deal with those feelings- I wish I could have said something to someone about him before I lost track of him. Thank you for the advice & kindness.
