This is a very long URL, I know, I hope that it fits on most peoples servers. It's way too extensive for me to try to put on the NG and fix line wrap, however, here is just a part of what is on the page:

"(3) In my experience, staff are degraded, intimidated and oppressed and are rendered robotic and manageable by fear tactics. I have witnessed the disillusionment, degradation and departure of hundreds of good, honest and highly dedicated staff members who have suffered through successive purges, experiencing cruel and inhumane treatment.

These individuals have been severed from friends and families, their only crime being an expressed desire to see an end to injustice, suppressive and dictatorial behavior, and the blatant corruption of the tech and policy of Scientology. Staff are routinely handled with ruthless force, psychotic screaming, obscene shouting and absurd programs. Lies, trickery and treachery abound.

(4) The public are viewed solely as gross income products. The attitude is to control them with propaganda. To deprive them of their upstat field opinion leaders (regardless of opinions) so that no voice exists other than that of the official Church propaganda manipulators. The insane rationale behind such attitudes is that 'the field is composed of dilettantes', that 'anyone not in the Sea Org is under suspicion', that 'the field respond best to intimidation and make-wrong techniques'."

I have never heard of Shiona before, but let me tell you, the courage exhibited by this woman is to be admired.

ARC for Shiona,
