Protest against opening of new Scientology Europe HQ here in Ireland!

Saturday the 14th October @13.30pm,

CSI Centre(Victory Outreach), Firhouse Road, Tymon South, Dublin 24

This Saturday the 14th of October, there will be a protest held outside the building formerly known as Victory Outreach Centre on Firhouse Road, Tymon South, Dublin 24.

The purpose of our protest is to oppose in the strongest possible terms, the infamously malignant and dangerous Cult known as the Church of Scientology from establishing a European base here in Ireland and to send a strong message to this so called Church that they are NOT welcome in Dublin in anyway shape or form to engage and practice the shamefully exploitative and dangerous activities and practices this cult is internationally renowned for which up to now is well documented and public knowledge.
This protest has been organised between a large plethora of activists from across many different spectrums, from anti-cult activists to autism advocates, sceptics, anti-austerity campaigners and everyone in between, to protest the opening of a Scientology Hub in South Dublin this Saturday.
Also present will be families from both here in Ireland and from Britian, devasted by Scientologys harmful disconnection practice.

Scientology is not new to Ireland, it has existed here in some form for well over half a century, but not making any real impact during that time, with only a handful of members active in the cult from a small office above a hair salon on Abbey Street.
But as of recently there has been a very determined effort by the Cult of Scientology to establish a base in Ireland, potentially a hub for its European operations.
Last year the Scientology Cult, purchased a property on Merrion Square directly across from Leinster House, the home of parliament in Ireland, and recently it bought a property in Firhouse formerly belonging to another exploitation cult known as Victory Outreach.
It has been established that over 250 members of the cult from across the globe have been brought to Ireland to bolster the cults position in Ireland and recruit more unfortunate souls into its exploitative ranks.
Scientology was formerly bankrupt in Ireland yet now with large sums of money invested in property and such a large influx of high up cult activists, it is clear Scientology has big plans for Ireland and this is something for everyone to be extremely concerned with.

There are many reasons to list, as to why you would be disgusted by the Cult of Scientology and to oppose its intentions and activities but here are a few core examples as to how they are dangerous and why we most stop them setting up shop on front door.

-Scientology through instructions passed down from its notoriously deranged Walter Mitty founder L Ron Hubbard, is notoriously anti-medicine and all forms of accredited Psychiatry and Psychology,
Through many front organisations it promotes a vast collection of quack remedies and pseudoscientific nonsense cures for large sums of money, mainly to vulnerable folks.
Front groups like Narcanon on which encourages those suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction to ignore advice from qualified addiction specialists, and buy places on Scientologists rehabilitation clinics subjected to unproven and discredited procedure’s.
They also claim to be able to cure disorders and conditions such as autism which is deemed a ‘spiritual flaw’, with children subjected to bizarre and highly dangerous quack remedies.
-The Scientology Cult is widely condemned internationally for its practice of ‘Disconnection’, a Scientology policy where cult members are instructed to break all links and contact with family members and friends who are not part of the cult. This has led to thousands upon thousands of heartbroken families across the world decades without speaking or having contact with their sisters, brothers, sons and daughters. On Saturday we are to be joined by the families of those here in Ireland and in Britain affected by disconnection.
-The Scientology Cult relentlessly attacks and harasses former members who leave the cult, journalists and anyone who offers criticism or exposure of the churches misdeeds, subjecting them to harassment by Private investigators, vexatious litigation and other fascist style terror tactics.
-The Cult of Scientology engages in rampant and widespread abuse, exploitation and discrimination against its own membership, forcing them to engage in unpaid and forced labour, bankrupting them with endless bunk courses and generally transforming them into slaves for the organisation.

GET THE PICTURE!

It is utterly baffling that there has been virtual silence from public representatives on this matter and no concern shown publicly about the intentions of this sinister cult.
We ask all who support our protest to please contact your local public representatives and lodge with them your opposition to this cult and you oppose the opening of this building in Firhouse it intends to use to flog its harmful quackery.
It’s also worth noting that as we are enduring a housing crisis, that a powerful cult like Scientology can just swan in and buy up empty properties to engage activities harmful to local communities.

So please join us on Saturday, let the Scientology cult know they are unwelcome in Dublin or any part of Ireland to promote their bile.
The grand overlord of Scientology himself David Miscavige is supposedly to be present on Saturday which gives an added incentive to protest.
We will be peacefully assembling at 12pm on Saturday outside the front entrance of the former Victory Outreach Centre Firhouse Road, Tymon South.
Bring your placards, banners, leaflets, bullhorns etc
ALL WELCOME
