June 19, 2010 marked the 29th consecutive month of peaceful global protests against the scientology cult. Clearwater went with a second citizen’s choice theme. A 22 year citizen of Clearwater came by to talk to us and told the tale of how Clearwater tried to fight the cult in the beginning but then "sold their soul to the devil". The disgusted citizen then threw his arms out wide and said "when you sell your soul to the devil this is what you get!" indicating a downtown largely deserted and with the cult itself owning the vast majority of it.

This month the cult showed it’s true criminal nature by having one of their teens who was a plant in the protest group commit theft by stealing a scientology volunteer ministers jacket which had been a gift form an ex-cultist to a Clearwater Anon. The plant asked if he could wear it for one protest march, the owner unwisely said okay. Very quickly in to the march the plant tells me he’s going to run and grab his brother (who was always with him at the two other protests they attended) and he’ll meet us at the intersection we were enroute to.

I said okay, but leave the jacket. You can put it back on when you return. He said I’ll only be a minute. I said no, we don’t know you well enough to let you ride off with it on your bike. He says I don’t want to take it off so I’ll just come with you and call my brother. Then as soon as I turned my back on him to cross the street he sped off on his bike as fast as he could go. A police report was filed for theft of property.

I was very suspicions about those two since the first time they showed up to a protest in March of this year. Their stories simply did not add up. As one example: a teen who says he doesn’t go on the internet while feverishly fiddling with a blackberry at every opportunity. As the disgusted Clearwater Police Officer said when I told him of my earlier suspicions "well you were right!"

These are the two scilon plants we had dubbed "the bike twins" who claimed to be brothers. The one on the right is the one who stole the jacket: www.flickr.com/photos/anonymous9000/4529262252/ And the one in the background here with the VM backpack:

We still have the cult VM backpack we were given at the same time as the jacket and the cult will be seeing a lot more of that at future protests. We protested an extra hour this day and some of the protestors vowed to protest several days in a row this week as a result of being victimized by this cult’s criminal actions.

Since last month’s protests scientology and it’s abuses have once again made headlines across the world and two Anonymous megaraids have taken place.

5/12/10 Australian Senator Nick Xenophon secures inquiry in to a public benefit test for charities and religions. "This proposed amendment is no threat to charities or religions acting in the public good," Nick said. "It is simply designed to ensure that people who derive benefit from the Australian taxpayer actually provide benefit to the Australian people through good works."
A similar public benefit test has operated in the UK since 2006, and crucially under the UK model, any identifiable benefit is balanced against any detriment or harm.
"For more than six months we have heard devastating allegations of abuse within the Church of Scientology. We have heard allegations of coerced abortions, false imprisonment, stalking, harassment, extortion, obstruction of justice, and serious labour violations," Nick said. "This test would ensure that these harms would have to be taken into account when deciding whether an organisation receives tax exempt status."


5/19/10 The daughter of the cult president in Australia speaks out about scientology describing it as "toxic" and accusing it of tearing some famlies apart.

But don’t take my word for it, educate yourself about what TIME Magazine called "The Cult of Greed and Power":

Forest Haven Mental Institution
filed lawsuit

Forest Haven was a children’s developmental center and mental institution in Laurel, Maryland.

It was notorious for its poor conditions and abuse of patients. It opened its doors in 1925, and was shut down in 1991 by a federal court. There have since been numerous civil and class-action lawsuits involving patients and employees

During the early years, Forest Haven was considered a "state of the art" facility. With a good reputation, this hospital set the standard for other states to follow. With declining conditions decades later, many patients filed lawsuits against the hospital for reasons of abuse, neglect, poor living conditions — even medical testing. A small morgue was all that stood between the patients and a cemetery on site where graves had been repeatedly uncovered by erosion.
