Saturday 12 April: Raid on Scientology: OPERATION RECONNECT

Saturday, April 12, 2008
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Event Type:
Location Details:
"Church" of Scientology, 701 Montgomery Street, San Francisco. right up the street from Montgomery BART/Muni; across the street from TransAmerica Building.

Please join us in San Francisco (and cities EVERYWHERE) for OPERATION RECONNECT. A large protest at every Scientology "church" and official office worldwide took place on the 10th of February, 2008. This was the first major worldwide protest, with about 7000 people participating in at least 108 cities worldwide. The second successful global protest was on the 15th of March, with at least 10,000 participants in 110 cities. Our next protest, focusing on the "Disconnection" policy, is on April 12th. The name of Operation Reconnect stems from the "Church" of Scientology's notorious "Disconnection" policy, under which individuals within the cult are forbidden contact with those whom the cult deems to be a threat to its security. In most cases, these are merely people who are worried and voice concerns about loved ones inside the cult. This policy is used frequently by Scientology to separate families, creating a rift between those outside Scientology and those trapped within it. This also serves the purpose of removing any social supports an individual has outside the "Church," making it more difficult for them to end their affiliation with this vicious and wealthy organization.
Join us in San Francisco, Saturday 12 April, 11 am. .
= Breaking family through its doctrine of "disconnection" <br />
= Doctrine of "destroying utterly" what it perceives as opposition to Scientology, through its "dead agent", and "fair game" policies <br />
