Operation RPF; Restoring People's Freedom.

Discussion in 'Australia & New Zealand Pickets and Protests' started by Feral, Jan 9, 2011.

    Since Shane Kelsey was freed from the RPF around early December by his father with the help or at least advice and info from BIA several Scientology critics have been discussing a serious issue. That is, how does the Sea Org get to hold people against their will. In the RPF and on the decks of any SO unit there are those held by threat and even under guard.

    We investigated and found a whole lot more than we bargained for.

    On Sunday the 19th of December exes and Anons converged on 16 Dohary st. Dundas, the premises of CLO ANZO and the prison for many hapless RPFers. Our mission was to take away three RPFers who we were informed wanted to leave and were in effect being held prisoner. Now if it is ever substantiated that RPFers have in fact been held against their will under Australain law it would constitute aggravated kidnap which carries up to 25 years imprisonment. Link

    We had previously set up accommodation, jobs, free legal and an allowance from international aid agencies aware of and concerned by the illegal detainment of people in the RPF.

    We had a list of names from BIA and from some the recently blown SO from ANZO. In total we had six names but our primary focus was three that we'd had confirmed that definitely wanted to leave.

    The first was Matt Faye, an Aussie who grew up in the SO, his mother is the NOTS C/S at the AO and he hasn't known anything else. I remember him as a kid of 12 who I saw around the AO after the GAT. The next is Brian Curry, he is a US citizen and was Shane Kelsey's twin. He had been wanting to leave for years and now was in the RPF's RPF as his twin escaped three weeks prior. He was heading there anyway because he was so intent on leaving and as many of you know that is the "standard" handling for nor being happy in the RPF.

    The third was Carol Miles, a British subject, she was the Port Captain on the Freewinds and was RPFed for being a security risk and wanting to route out. This is what Mike Rinder said about it;

    This is the surprise news that has been hinted at for some time now.

    It was a great day's raiding and, if you're wondering why OSA was so crazy at the last protest at the AO for the New Year's event, now you know.

    Can you say "criminal charges for kidnapping?"

    Having that one your mind would "throw your TRs out" now wouldn't it, Michael Gordon? Virginia Stewart? Vicky Dunstan?

    When BIA said that he/she was going to be upping the ante, I guess OSA ANZO didn't expect that a bunch of us would be helping him/her out like we all did. So thanks BIA for helping put this all together and taking the fight to the cult where it belongs - at the heart of the abuses here in ANZO.

    I am so proud to know you guys.

    Reading that has made me teary.

    Brian Curry must have been the only one that OSA felt they could trust (at this moment) to say what was required ... poor man, when he gets out (and he will) he will need care.

    This is about returning the most basic right we all have.
    The power of choice.
    Its about giving these people an option and letting them decide for themselves what they want and not what Scientology forces them to do.
    Lack of options and fear is what traps all on the RPF.
    Threats like:
    Leave and you will loose your family and friends and you will not make it as you are a degraded person for wanting to leave, you will be decalred a Suppresive Person.
    Thoughts like:
    I have been shipped to a foreign country what would I do if I ran away.
    I have nothing, my life has been this cult, how would I survive if I left.
    OSA has my passport under lock and key I could not leave the country to get home even if I escaped.
    Rights, basic human rights Scientology does a good job at destroying.

    Well done to all who got involved in this.:yes:
