    my comment:  I would like to make an official complaint that ITV allowed the Alan Titchmarsh Show to be used a promotional piece for the cult of Scientology.

    The abuses of this cult are extremely well documented and have recently been highlighted by Pulitzer Prize winning author Lawrence Wright in his book "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief" and has been widely discussed on the internet. 

    Perhaps Alan can do a makeover at St. Hill and turn their disgusting sewerage system into a work of art using child RPFers.

    The Scientologists have for years claimed that Lisa McPherson died of a pulmonary embolism. (Wikipedia: Death of Lisa McPherson) Note the difference in standard care. They didn’t lock Hubbard up, strap him down, deny him medical care, and turkey baster and chloral hydrate him. He got the best wog medical care in a wog hospital the Scientologists’ money could buy. The Scientologists’ care killed Lisa, not the embolism.

    Major Scientology Donor Becomes Billionaire

    Patrons Excalibur

    In 2008, the Duggan family was recognized by the church for donating more than $7.5 million to the cause, Wachter said. Duggan and his wife, Trish, were presented two years later with the Patrons Excalibur award, a prize made just for them to recognize a record-level of donations to the organization, according to a Scientology magazine.

    “What a privilege to be member of the team of Scientologists who play an active role in preserving the technology of Dianetics and Scientology,” Duggan and his wife said in a statement published by Legacy, a Scientology magazine, in 1992. “As this tech will ultimately have a profound impact on the billions of people on this planet alone, one can immediately see the vital need to preserve it in spite of anything else that can happen.”

    The Hole

    With all my thoughts,emotions, misgivings and grievances with some of these people I do have compassion for their Prison of belief, however misconstrued it is and I can see why Lawrence gave it that title. 

    Listen - Lawrence Wright Talks about Scientology.

    This is an excellent interview with Lawrence Wright about his controversial book ' Going Clear' The Prison of Belief.

    Cruise Control from Taiwan to Tokyo

    Today I bought a copy of People magazine so I could read all about Jennifer Lopez, the star, on life,men and marriage. Plus straight talk on plastic surgery, raising kids and Scientology.

    We'll skip the life, men and marriage,plastic surgery and raising kids and get straight to the nitty gritty.

    On Scientology she says she knows a lot about it because her Dad has been a scientologist for 25 years, though she adds, she isn't one.J.Lo adds she likes the communication and the breakdown of what it is, going on to say there could be a third party on the outside that could be causing conflict that you don't even know about.I'm laughing now because People magazine didn't use any Scientology terminology, and presumably neither did J. Lo.She's on about a Potential Trouble Source (PTS) as any good scientologist or anyone who knows a lot about it would rightly know, and as she fails to mention it, I'll let you know, if there is one of those out there, you're connected to an SP(Suppressive Person).

    Now we've got that straight guess who else is inside the People magazine?

    Here he is, Cruise Control in Tokyo. No 3 in Scientology.

    There's also a 6 page article of horror stories on prescription drugs, all from America.Oh, yes Cruise is in control, but what about the People?

    A couple of interesting things happened while I was out, first I found this;

    Taiwan TV Reports on Scientology Scam

    Scientology: 'We Like to Make peace'

    On this day

    Scientology: 'We like to make peace'

    © St. Petersburg Times, published January 28, 1998

    "The church has been saddled with a legacy that has taken it some time to overcome," said Monique Yingling, a Washington lawyer who has represented Scientology for 14 years. "What it wants to do is stay out of litigation, resolve what is outstanding and move forward. . . . The church isn't here to be involved in litigation, but to expand Scientology and have it continue to grow around the world."

    The "legacy" Yingling mentions dates back to the late 1970s and early 1980s when 11 Scientologists, including Mary Sue Hubbard, the wife of founder L. Ron Hubbard, were convicted of conspiring to burglarize federal offices and illegally bugging an IRS conference room. The criminal convictions stemmed from an FBI raid on Scientology centers in Washington and Los Angeles. Documents seized during the raids uncovered a well-orchestrated Scientology plot to infiltrate the lives and offices of perceived enemies and steal documents.

    Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder, two of Scientology's top officials, say they are part of the management team that abolished the old Guardians Office which directed the criminal conduct.
    Most of the litigation facing the church in the 1990s stems from events that occurred in the past, they insist. Many of those who filed civil suits against the church in the 1980s and early 1990s were working hand in glove with rogue IRS investigators who wanted to destroy the church, Rinder and Rathbun say.

    "History has vindicated us on every front," says Rathbun. "We are at the turn of the millennium. A lot has changed, across the rest of the United States and the rest of the world when you say you're from the Church of Scientology, you immediately get respect."

    In 30 years of litigation, Scientology has established valuable legal precedents in First Amendment law, taxpayer rights, freedom of information, privacy rights and intellectual property, the lawyers say.
    Among their victories was a 1993 appellate court decision that struck down a Clearwater ordinance aimed at regulating charitable solicitations.

    "Our counsel will be the first to tell you that we have to be dragged to court kicking and screaming, it's the last thing in the world we like to do, we like to make peace," Rathbun said.

    Going Clear - The Prison of Belief

    Hundreds of Falsehoods - Here's one:, January 25, 2013

    Let me just put in an updated comment here - then I'll leave..

    Well, I looked at some of the various strings here and found that most of you have long-since formed your opinions. Whatevs.

    So I suppose it's pointless for anyone to remark that they had a VERY negative opinion of Scientology, based on non-Scientology sources, until they actually READ a Scientology book, made sure they understood exactly what was in it [which had nothing to do with the negative descriptions, interestingly], used the material and found that it worked splendidly, without side-effects.

    That was some decades ago. Since then I have been rewarded with a very full life. But I'm not going to put the details up, as they will be further criticized.. C'mon, you know this, and I know it.

    But let me just say that to consider the defense of one's belief, ANY belief, as "proof" of the speciousness of that belief is crappy circular logic: "See? He defends this crazy thing, which everybody says is crazy, therefore we know he's crazy." Hmmm..

    I could go on.. But I do know that sooner than later this whole thing will pass and Scientology will still be around and doing very well. Why? Because when people find out what it REALLY is - not 'aliens' or 'mind-control' or 'The Secret Mysteries of Schmoobah', they love Scientology and will continue to practice it and support it and protect it.

    Anyway, this is my last post. Why? Well, there's an old saying - NOT written by L. Ron Hubbard - and it goes like this: "Never fight with a skunk - He LIKES the smell."

    Ok, you can rant now..

    [original review:]

    Simply.. The author blatantly ignored the facts.. This is a sworn deposition by one of the Church of Scientology Executives who was apparently never even interviewed for this book. And this is just one of hundreds of items which show that the book is libelous. Read this:


    I, Guillaume Lesevre, hereby declare and state as follows:

    1. I am 63 years old, of sound mind and body, and not under the influence of any drug or other substance that would affect my memory or ability to tell the truth. I have personal knowledge of the facts that I set forth in this Declaration, and if called as a witness in any proceeding, I could and would competently testify to these facts.

    2. I have prepared this Declaration by choice, not compulsion, as an exercise of my own free will, and without any pressure, coercion or duress concerning its content or preparation from anyone.

    3. I have been a Church staff member and a member of its religious order, the Sea Organization, for the past 39 years.

    4. In his planned book, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & The Prison of Belief, Lawrence Wright uses my name with incidents in which I was allegedly the "victim" of physical abuses. These so-called incidents never occurred. For example, Wright's allegation that the leader of our religion would have banged my head against that of another Church senior executive resulting in "blood coming out of my ears requiring medical attention" is beyond preposterous. The truth is: it never happened.

    5. There is another allegation in Lawrence Wright's book where I reportedly would have again been the "victim" of physical abuses in order to obtain from me the admission of some supposed wrong doings. This incident never occurred.

    6. These allegations of physical abuse are false and by their nature defamatory in the extreme. They are damaging to both my and my family's reputation.

    7. Lawrence Wright never even bothered to contact me to verify whether any such incidents had actually occurred before he wrote them in his book. I have never met, spoken to or heard from Lawrence Wright, although I am very easy to contact. Literally tens of thousands of our parishioners have written to me over the years and my name is well known amongst them.

    8. Having worked for over three decades at Church of Scientology International, I knew the sources cited by Wright in his book. One of his main sources is Mark Rathbun. Lawrence Wright states in his book that Rathbun was "one of the most powerful figures in Scientology". This is ludicrous. During and since the time Rathbun was around, I have worked at the top echelon of the Church. He never was a participant in any way on international management matters. He was solely working on external legal affairs.

    9. In the 1980s, myself and other top execs of the Church were in frequent communication with Mr. Hubbard. Mark Rathbun never was in communication with Mr. Hubbard on any subject, nor did he afterwards ever see or meet with me on any international matters or anything related to the expansion of our Churches.

    10. In further evidence of this, we hold international events nine times a year to keep all our parishioners abreast of the Church activities and our international expansion. I spoke publicly in over a hundred of these events that are broadcast to Scientologists in 16 languages and 100 countries. Mark Rathbun never appeared in such events.

    11. I am confident that the vast majority of Scientologists never knew who or what Mark Rathbun was.

    12. Concerning the "physical abuses" Lawrence Wright alleges in his book, in my 39 years as a Church staff member and executive, the only person I ever saw engaged in such abuse is Mark Rathbun himself. Specifically, in the early 2000s and following his repeated failures on legal assignments, Mark Rathbun engaged in physically abusing some Church staff. He even did this to me on exactly three occasions.

    13. Mark Rathbun physical abuses of Church staff members, including those he directed at me, where committed by him while the ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, Mr. David Miscavige, was away from the Church's international headquarters.

    14. Upon his return at the end of 2003, Mr. David Miscavige found out about this and immediately removed Mark Rathbun from any and all positions of authority--permanently. He was demoted to a janitorial position, while we kept on assisting him (including financing full medical support for various physical problems he had).

    15. Mark Rathbun could not deal with having lost whatever authority and status he had enjoyed and left the Church unannounced. Unable to move on with his life, Rathbun years later launched his orchestrated attacks in the media. It is only then that we found out that Mark Rathbun had suborned perjury while he was working in the Church legal arena. The Church only found out about Mark Rathbun's crime when he bragged about it to the St. Petersburg Times in 2009. Up till then he had carefully withheld this crime from the Church leadership.

    16. I have worked for thirty one years straight under Mr. Miscavige and he is the best friend I ever had. In just the last 6 years, Mr. Miscavige's actions have resulted in a complete renaissance for Scientology.

    I declare under penalty of perjury that the forgoing is true and correct.

    Date: January 10, 2013

    Guillaume Lesevre

    "Under penalty of perjury".. Mr Wright never had been, or he wouldn't have been able to write the book. Thank you.

    Clearing the Planet

    "In it the leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, talks literally of their plan for world domination — "spearheading the crusade for a clear planet" — and there is talk of a scheme to move the church to other planets too. On earth he claims over a billion followers, a complete takeover of the Colombian police force and that Bolivian president Evo Morales has started in the cult. It also becomes evident where the millions of dollars Scientology forces converts to pay to ascend its ranks goes — they have a yacht, a hotel, are expanding furiously into some prime real estate and translate and distribute millions of books and pamphlets across the world. The full three-hour video, filled as it is with bad CGI, can't have been cheap either."

    Insane Scientology Propaganda.
    "Our source for the video was in the church for seven years, and rose to a senior position before he left recently. When he eventually got out they sent people to his place of work to tell his boss he was secretly a convicted rapist and pedophile. He did not want to be named for fear of further persecution."

    If you haven't seen the above two videos, you really should, especially the second one, although not L. Ron Hubbard's voice, some of the wording is straight out of LRH's mouth.

    On to the next story, headlined “Replacing Corruption with TRUST & DIGNITY.” In short, it describes how implementation of their rhetoric has transformed specific divisions of the Peruvian National Police force. These divisions include neighborhood security, traffic control, a Watchman’s Unit of barrio patrolmen, municipal police working in impoverished neighborhoods, and transit police. They’re officially distributing Scientologists’ The Way to Happiness throughout jurisdictional channels. One colonel conducted “seminars at the police-supported soccer clubs, primarily formed on behalf of barrio kids who might otherwise run with backstreet dogs.” And this all culminated in a plaque and award of honor from the Peruvian National Police.

    PR Disaster - Let's Talk to OSA - Office of Special Affairs

    decades-old false allegations and rank speculation mostly sourced to a handful of bitter individuals kicked out of the church a decade or more ago.

    The Church of Scientology has identified more than 200 errors so far in the book, ranging from the wrong year for the marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to the erroneous claim that the church owns a bank and schools in Clearwater, Fla., a claim Wright could have at least attempted to verify via public records. Wright also regurgitates news clippings without mentioning that the claims were later recanted — some under oath — or tossed out during judicial proceedings. So much for “endnotes.”

    MY guess is Lawrence Wright's book will be read far and wide, because of all it's 'errors'.FACT the only error Scientology made was trying to call it a RELIGION .It's a businesses masquerading as a self help group whom are stuck in the 1950s, relying on L. Ron Hubbard's policy letters, to forward the third world order.The third world order is a PR campaign run by the "church" of scientology because NO one in their RIGHT mind in the REAL world would ever give credence to Scientology's objectives ' Clearing the Planet' of anyone who is 1.1, ie; the misfits, those whom do not conform to scientology's agenda.

    Take a little kid, give them nothing else but scientology, and what do you get, a robot.

    And these suddenly scientology objectors, whom like to call themselves "INDIES" Independent Scientologists do NOT realise how much they have fucked with their own children's brains.

    I don't care who the fuck you are, you could be Mary Windsor, Queen of England for all I care, the TRUE fact IS, YOU have scrambled the brains of your children.

    The Whole

    Affidvit of Tonja C Burden

    Copyright (C) 1980 Tonja Burden
    Redistribution rights granted for non commercial purposes.

         My name is Tonja Burden of Las Vegas, Nevada.  I am 20 years old. On or about March 3, 1973, when I was 13 years old, my father and mother were recruited to join Scientology.  I joined Scientology after being recruited by Billy Kohn, and signed my Sea Organization contract for one billion years on or about March 3, 1973.
     Kohn stated that we would be placed on the staff in Las Vegas, live in well furnished, private quarters, eat well and earn a substantial amount of money with two days off per week.  My father sold his Cadillac and sports car, and we drove to Los Angeles with our recruiter.
     Scientology placed me in the Cadet Organization, and my parents in the American Saint Hill Organization (ASHO).  The Cadet Organization, headed by Dorothy Jefferson, at 811 Beacon Street, Los Angeles, California, consisted of two three-story buildings that housed approximately 400 children.  The Cadet Organization was designed to teach children about Scientology.  My duties were to care, clean and feed the children.  Myself and another girl my age were the two oldest children at the Cadet Organization.  The living conditions were squalid. Glass from broken windows lay strewn over the floors.  Live electrical wires were exposed in areas where young children played.  We received little food.  On several occasions spoiled milk with maggots was served to children.  The maggots were removed by hand before the milk was served.  In addition to caring for the children, I cleaned toilets daily.  I wrote to L. Ron Hubbard explaining the conditions, but nothing improved.
    Children were not allowed to live with their parents.  Scientology permitted one visit every other week, and only for 45 minutes during mealtime.  My parents were placed at American Saint Hill Organization and left Scientology in September 1973, when I was aboard the ship, the Apollo.
    One day a man arrived at the Cadet Organization from Flag.  Flag headquarters was on the Apollo.  This man spoke of 'The Source,' L Ron Hubbard.  Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, needed 'messengers' and others to work aboard his ship.
     I left the Cadet Organization after approximately three months.  I was then sent to Folo, another Scientology base located at the Manor on Franklin Street in Los Angeles, California.  At Folo I was placed in the Flag Readiness Unit (FRU).  Chuck Pierce ran this unit.  The program was designed to conduct 'security checks' of individuals to ensure they were appropriate subjects to work for L. Ron Hubbard aboard the Apollo.
     During questioning they attempted to determine if I was connected to any 'Suppressive Persons.'  (A Suppressive Person is one hostile to the Scientology cult.)  I was given a personality test and an IQ test and other tests.  I participated in indoctrination (brainwashing) for three months.  Finally, I was approved and sent into Briefing.
     The Briefing process occurred on or about August 1973.  In briefing, Peter Cook instructed me to give specific answers to certain questions that may be asked me by non-Scientologists.  Basically, briefing involved how to answer questions that I might encounter while en route to the Apollo.  Many of the things I was instructed to say were not true.  The location and operations aboard the Apollo remained secret.  I was told if a customs agent or other non-Scientologist asked about my destination, I should respond I was 'in transit'.
     Peter cook briefed me on my cover story.  I was to tell people I was 'in transit' to the Operation Transport Corporation (OTC), a business management school on board ship.  In briefing, Cook demonstrated my 'in transit conduct' by using modeling clay.  He would construct a clay ship and clay people and simulate my interactions with other people while 'in transit;' using this method, he ingrained the standard responses.
     I flew to New York after briefing and was met by Kevin Campbell. Campbell worked in a building in New York and assisted in operating RONY.  RONY, I later learned, was a liaison point that received coded Telex messages from the Apollo and relayed those coded messages via Telex machines to other organizations ('orgs') in the United States and other parts of the world.  Aboard the ship I would see Mike Henderson take Telex messages from the ship and go ashore to send those messages to RONY in New York.  On other occasions, Henderson would go ashore to receive Telex messages from RONY, New York.  I was privy to these practices as L. Ron Hubbard's personal messenger.
    Campbell placed me on a plane and instructed me to meet Chuck Adams at my destination, Lisbon, Portugal.  Adams met me at the airport in Lisbon and informed me that the Apollo had set sail.  Several hours later, Adams discovered the ship's destination was the island of Madeira.  I was placed on a plane to Madrid, Spain and at Madrid switched over to a flight that arrived on the island of Madeira.
     Questioned by customs agents, I told them I was 'in transit.'  I located a taxi drive who drove me to the Apollo.
    I saw the Apollo for the first time and was greatly disappointed by its dilapidated condition.  Once aboard, I was assigned a 'buddy' and given two days to learn about the ship.  The Apollo was one of five ships operated by Scientology which Hubbard used to direct the worldwide organizations.  There were approximately 300 - 500 'Sea Org' Scientologist aboard the Apollo.  I was given a berth in the women's dorm and placed in the Estates Project Force (EPF).
    The EPF was designed to work on the individual to gauge how much strain one could tolerate.  I was told the EPF would transform me to an 'able-bodied seaman.'
    In EPF, my day began at 6:00 am.  I scrubbed clothes from 6:00 am until 12:00 noon without breakfast or any breaks.  The clothes were scrubbed by hand in a bucket, and I was directed to rinse each article in 13 separate buckets.  Then I hung the clothes on the deck to dry.
     After one-half hour lunch I was assigned to clean six cabins. Cabins had to meet white glove inspection.  This meant a white glove or Q-tip was used to check corners and shelves of each cabin for dust.  If the cabins were not cleaned to white-glove perfection, I had to run a lap around the boat before recleaning the room.  A lap was equivalent to about one-fifth of a mile.  My day would end about 12:00 midnight.
    On rainy days I ironed the clothes dry.  This required ironing during the evening hours and into the morning hours.  On many occasions I ironed through the night, finishing at 6:00 am.  I then started washing the next morning's clothing.  On occasion I worked three or four days without sleep.  I fell asleep at the ironing board with a hot iron in my hand.  My senior, 'Doreen' Gilliam, 'caught' me sleeping and yanked my head off the board.  She ordered me to run laps and assigned me a condition of 'Doubt.'  A condition of 'Doubt' required 15 hours of 'amends work'.  This additional work had to be performed during my sleep and meal time.  Until I completed my amends work, I was ordered not to communicate with anyone.  I ate lunch alone.  Finally, I spoke up, telling them I had enough.  I was sent to the Commanding messenger, and she assigned me one month in the galley, washing pots and pans.  I washed pots and pans for one month and went back into the EPF.
     EPF was like prison.  I had to say 'sir' to everyone and was generally allowed 15 minutes for meals.  They would not let me out of the EPF until I proved myself.  I was totally brainwashed to receive and take orders.  I was paid $2.90 per week for this work.
    While in EPF I never heard from my parents, no phone calls or letters.  Aboard the ship, I received a Telex from Peter Albert, who was the Continental Justice Chief, FOLO.  The Telex informed me my father had been declared an SP (Suppressive Person).  They said he was a 'plant,' a spy within Scientology.  I began crying and asked to leave, telling them I could convince my father to return to Scientology.
     Dede Riesdorf, the 'Super Cargo' of our 'org', would not permit me to leave.  I explained I wanted to leave and reunite with my mom and dad, but she would not permit this.  She told me to 'disconnect' from my parents because my parents were SP's.  Disconnection meant no more communication with my parents.  They told me my parents would not make it in the world, but that I would make it in the world.
    Tony Armstrong, the commanding officer, assigned me a 'condition of Doubt' and ordered me back on the EPF.  She said since I wished to leave I had to return to the EPF.  I was automatically assigned 15 'hours of amends' due to the 'condition of Doubt.'  I returned to the 6:00 am - midnight schedule, again, occasionally working twenty-four hours a day. Approximately one month after, I was reassigned to 'Training Routines' (TR).
     During the Training Routines, myself and two other practiced carrying messages to LRH.  We had to listen to a message, repeat it in the same tone, and practice salutes.
      'Ghosting' was on-the-job training where I learned how to serve LRH.  I followed another messenger around and observed her carry his hat, light his cigarettes, carry his ashtray, and prepare his toiletries.  Eventually, I performed those duties.
     As his servant I would sit outside his room and help him out of bed when he called 'messenger.'  I responded by assisting him out of bed, lighting his cigarette, running his shower, preparing his toiletries and helping him dress.  After that I ran to his office to check it, hoping it passed white glove inspection.  He frequently exploded if he found dust or dirt or smelled soap in his clothes.  That is why we used 13 buckets to rinse.
     I then would set up LRH's auditing room; he audited himself.  Then I prepared a snack for him.  LRH would go into auditing for several hours.  Later, I delivered messages to LRH.  I carried messages between Hubbard and the Telex machines on the Apollo, which were connected to Scientology Organizations on land.  The messages were also sent via Telex to RONY when someone went ashore.
    While on the Apollo, I observed numerous punishments meted out for many minor infractions or mistakes made in connection with Hubbard's very strict and bizarre policies.  On a number of occasions, I saw people placed in the 'chain lockers' of the boat on direct orders of Hubbard.  These lockers were small, smelly holes, covered by grates where the chain for the anchor was stored.  I saw one boy held in there for 30 nights, crying and begging to be released.  He was only allowed out to clean the bilges where the sewer and refuse of the ship collected.  I believe his 'crimes' were taking or using a musical instrument, I believe a flute, of someone else without permission.  I also saw a young boy and a young girl thrown in the chain lockers at separate times because of romantic involvements they had with other people.  Hubbard fanatically prohibited involvement between the sexes, or out-2D, as it is called in Scientology.  Married persons were allowed to see each other but it was strictly controlled.
     LRH told me he was selling the ship and moving to a land base.  The boat was sold sometime during October 1975.  Approximately 500 people moved to Daytona Beach.  We rented several hotels in Daytona.  After several months we moved to the Fort Harrison in Clearwater.  At first, LRH called it the United Churches.  I heard LRH scheme this cover.  He said we would be called United Churches, although no other real churches were involved.  Finally, Mayor Cazares discovered that United Churches was a cover name for Scientology.
    I discovered this scheme by reading public relations office papers. These papers were prepared by the public relations office, and the papers explained the United Church front.  A public relations officer was a person who dealt with the public.
    At Fort Harrison, security guards were stationed outside to prevent people from 'blowing'.  To 'blow' meant to leave Scientology.  People were not allowed to just leave Scientology.  Approximately 30 to 40 people tried to escape.  These people were caught and placed in the RPF (Rehabilitation Project Force).  The RPF was a Scientology 'concentration camp', where people who were 'security threats' were kept under guard.  The RPF at Fort Harrison was in a storage area.
     Some people were allowed to 'leave' after being 'security checked', searched, and after having their Scientology-related books and materials confiscated, even if they had paid for them.  These people also had to sign documents pertaining to their 'crimes' and sign various documents prepared by the Guardian's Office, the 'GO'.  The GO was the secret police arm of Scientology.
     At Fort Harrison I remained LRH's personal messenger.  I observed LRH control the operation of Scientology in the various 'orgs' worldwide from Fort Harrison.  I coded and decoded messages to and directly from Hubbard.  Hubbard used approximately 15 codes at this time to conceal his operations, programs and policies, which he disseminated worldwide. I personally delivered messages concerning Operation Snowhite, Operation Freakout, Operation Goldmine, and other Scientology secret and illegal operations.  I also filed these operations in Hubbard's personal filing cabinet, and later in filing cabinets of the GO.
    All Telex communications were processed through his messengers. These Telexes were coded and sent to:  Los Angeles, United States Guardian's Office, Folo, RONY, Africa, Henning Heldt, Arthur Maren, Jane Kember and other individuals and locations.  Telexes were sent to all Guardian Offices worldwide.  One Telex from LRH questioned Mayor Cazares' educational background.  He discovered this information through a private investigator.
     LRH declared people Suppressive Persons if they escaped from Scientology.  He sent Telexes to the Guardian's Office listing the SP's. I have seen names of people declared SP's by LRH.
     In February, 1976 Hubbard left for New York.  I performed the same )duties of coding and decoding messages for the Guardian's Office.  I received many messages from Hubbard.  When Hubbard was in La Qunita, California, I continued to code and decode messages from Hubbard to the Guardian's Office seven days a week until August 1977.
    In August 1977 I refused to perform a certain order and was sent to the galley, where I performed menial labor until I emotionally broke apart and was sent to the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) on the direct orders of Hubbard.
    In the RPF you were labeled 'treasonous' and force to work 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, and oftentimes received only 'rice and beans' and water.  During this time I personally observed a person chained to pipes in the boiler room in the Fort Harrison building for a period of weeks. In the RPF I saw people screaming and crying during the constant 'auditing' on the E-meter.  The E-meter is a lie detector used during auditing.  RPF prisoners were forced to undergo 'auditing' in order to 'audit out' their evil purposes against Hubbard and Scientology.  I cried virtually the whole time I was in the RPF.
     Finally, in November 1977 I decided I had to escape.  At approximately 4:30 a.m.  I stole the keys from a guard who was sleeping at the door to the storage area where we slept.  I crawled through an air duct on my stomach, where I observed the telephone in the lobby.  I saw no one, ran to the telephone, and called my father and told him of the situation.  He told me he would send my uncle to come and get me and take me to Fort Lauderdale.  I convinced the officers in the RPF that my uncle was a VIP for the Miami Dolphins (which was not true), and that if they refused his request to visit, that might cause bad public relations.  Finally, with my uncle's assistance, I escaped and flew back to Las Vegas.
    Approximately two weeks after I returned to Las Vegas, two of Hubbards's agents came to my house and told me that Hubbard wanted to see me.  I told them I would never return.  They then asked if I would go for a cup of coffee with them.  After a short while I agreed to have coffee.  I got in the car, in the front seat, and sat between the two agents.  After driving a few minutes, I noticed we were driving to the highway, and I asked where we were going.  They told me I was being taken to Los Angeles to see Hubbard.
    In Los Angeles I was locked in a room and forced to undergo a 'security check' on the E-meter.  I was very scared and crying, and told them I had a family reunion to go to during the Holidays.  I told them I had relatives on the police department in Las Vegas, and that I would come back after the Holidays.  I convinced them to release me, and I returned home by bus.  For weeks after I arrived home, they constantly called me to find out when I would return.  I said Never!
    I was in Scientology from the age of 13 to the age of 18.  I received at some times approximately $2.50 a week pay, and at other times approximately $17.50 a week.  I received no education, and in fact phony classrooms were set up in Florida to demonstrate to educational officials of Clearwater from knowing we were living and sleeping on the floor in hallways and storage areas, sometimes without mattresses.
     The Organization currently has approximately $800.00 of my personal property.  When I demanded it be returned to me, they sent me a bill for the amount of $58,000, which I returned to them, and they thereafter sent me a 'corrected' bill for $36,005.70, which I have attached to this statement.
    In December 1979, after a class action suit was brought by former members of Scientology, I received an 'Amnesty Proclamation', which I have also attached.  It is possible that some former members of Scientology may be deceived by this Amnesty and return to Scientology. I feel frightened for them because I know what it is like inside Scientology.  I just hope the public learns what Hubbard is really doing.
    The facts, of which I have personal knowledge, set forth in the foregoing affidavit are true.  Facts of which I do not have personal knowledge, I believe to be true based on my best information and belief. The dates stated herein cover many years and represent my best memory, but I am not precisely certain of their accuracy.
    Signed under the pain and penalties of perjury this day of January 25, 1980.

    Luis and Maria Garcia of Irvine, California, filed the complaint in federal court in Tampa, Florida, near the church's national headquarters in Clearwater.

    The couple claims they were duped into giving more than $420,000 (£265,000) for a building campaign, disaster relief efforts and other Scientology causes, only to find the bulk of the money went to inflate the church coffers and line the pockets of its leader, David Miscavige.

    Help for Mark Plummer AKA Warrior

    Hello Sharone,

    This is very unusual for me to send a letter like this. But Warrior is the kind of man who deserves every critic's full support.

    I'm writing to you today to ask for your help in helping my very good friend Mark Plummer, aka "Warrior". For those of you not familiar with Mark's work in supporting victims of Scientology, let me tell you -- Mark has worked tirelessly over the past 17 years (1995 and ongoing today), offering his services and assistance to everyone and anyone who needed his help. He has easily put in over 25,000 hours exposing the con and helping victims of the cult.

    During a phone conversation recently, Mark told me that he is in danger of having his utilities shut off, losing his internet connection and even his home in the very near future. His auto insurance will be canceled Friday, January 25 unless paid. He is two months past due on his utility bill, and is half way into the billing period for the third month since he was last able to pay the bill. So he's facing cutoff soon. His credit cards have already been cancelled. He is two months behind on his high speed internet and phone services. His mortgage payment is due February 1.

    For several years Mark had a great job providing technical support for the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security during which time he obtained Top Secret clearance from the U.S. Department of Defense. He was laid off in August of 2010. Next he went back to school and completed the Microsoft Certified Network Engineer program at CyberTex Institute of Technology ( Mark is proficient in Windows, Windows Server 2008 R2, Active Directory, Security, and malware troubleshooting. He is actively looking for a job, but in the meantime he and his family (wife, daughter and grand daughter) REALLY need you help.
