Exposed

 

Ian Cobain, Alice Ross, Rob Evans and Mona Mahmood reporting in the Guardian, 2 May 2016, ‘ The UK government has embarked on a series of clandestine propaganda campaigns intended to bring about “attitudinal and behavioural change” among young British Muslims as part of a counter-radicalisation programme. In a sign of mounting anxiety across Whitehall over the persuasiveness of Islamic State’s online propaganda, a secretive Home Office unit has developed a discreet multimillion pound counter-messaging operation that it says privately is running at “industrial pace and scale”.

. . . Much of Ricu’s work is outsourced to a London communications company, Breakthrough Media Network, which has produced dozens of websites, leaflets, videos, films, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and online radio content, with titles such as The Truth about Isis and Help for Syria . . . Breakthrough also helped form a PR company that promoted the work of the grassroots organisations to journalists . . .

Breakthrough also privately says that one objective of its Ricu work is to promote “a reconciled British Muslim identity”.

Several sources say some of the campaign material has been tested on focus groups of young British Muslims without acknowledging its connection to Prevent. click here.
