Any swedefags or san franfags (beside radio)going?
herro is a small what whut ?
you guys rocks I am sorry can't be with you but french anonfags will be there
For another San Franfag, see:
Masks for Sunday obviously, but I assume one can not simply wear a GF mask to the Teacher's on Saturday?
It's your choice if you want to protect your identity, but if you normally mask up to raid, then it's probably a good idea to mask up for the conference. It's open to the public, there'll be TV crews filming proceedings, and most likely some Scientologists hassling attendees.
Scientology founder’s great grandson rails at cult
By Evelyn Ring
Saturday, June 30, 2012
The great grandson of the founder of the Church of Scientology will urge Irish people to steer well clear of the controversial religious movement at a conference in Dublin today.
Jamie DeWolfe, an American poet, has stood up against the controversial religion that his great-grandfather, L Ron Hubbard, founded.
His grandfather Ronald DeWolfe helped build Hubbard’s scientology empire in the 1950s but later denounced the founder as a fraud.
The conference has been organised by former scientologist Pete Griffith who believes there are about 50 members of the church in Ireland, not 500 as claimed by the organisation.
The church, internationally, has two high profile members — Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta — who believe scientology is life-affirming, empowering and the secret of their success.
However, Mr Griffith believes the two actors are victims just like all the other members of the church.
There will be 16 speakers at the conference, which is being held in the Teacher’s Club in Parnell Square and 12 are ex-members of the Church of Scientology.
Also addressing the conference are academics and family members who have been affected by the church.
Mr Griffith, an active scientologist for seven years, persuaded people to join the church when he worked at its Cumbria mission in Britain: "I hope they have come to the conclusion it is a cult and have left because I feel guilty about convincing them to join."
The Church of Scientology is based in Abbey Street, Dublin, and Mr Griffith has staged protests outside the building.
Mr Griffith said the conference was to convince people that scientology was a con. "What they promise you, they don’t deliver on."
He said the conference was also for current members of the church. "Everyone who is out still has a lot of sympathy for those still inside. We want to wake them up by just giving the facts and telling the truth."
Q102 newsclip on the hour: "The great-grandson of the founder of Scientology is in Dublin today. He's attending a conference being held by a group of ex-members. Former subscribers of the group founded by Hubbard in 1953 in California will be speaking out against their former ''religion''. Tory Christman is a high-profile critic of the organisation, which she says operates like a cult." And quick clip of Tory: http://utv.vo.llnwd.net/o16/Q102/burli/0823853.mp3
But basically there's too much media coverage to keep track of it all. Even the speakers I've asked can't list all the interviews they've done.
From big stuff like TV3, to interviews on South East Radio and Midlands 103 etc.
I demand Updates
