The problems that the UN was suppose to take care of and obliterate such as swet-shops slavery, atrocious pollution, depletion, deforestation, energy emissions, globalization problems -economic colonialism is what you should really call it- and of course the wars, it has failed miserable, the UN is a complete disgrace.
On Friday, March 26, 2010, Hana Eltringham Whitfield told a symposium in Hamburg, Germany, organised by the local authorities there, about her experiences working alongside L. Ron Hubbard in what would eventually come Scientology's Sea Organization. Her account makes it clear that the abuse in Scientology started well before the current regime: that it can be traced back to Hubbard himself.My thanks to Hana for sending me this text of her speech before the presentation. It contains material that she did not have time to present on the day, just as her actual speech has elements not included in the text. Hats off to the folk at Anonymous who wrote up the transcript of her speech so quickly.For a video of the speech itself and a transcript go here: http://forums.whyweprotest.net/42-english/hamburg-symposium-2010-videos-transcripts-64577/ For my write-up of the speech, synthesizing elements from the pre-prepared speech and the comments on the day, go here: http://infinitecomplacency.blogspot.com/2010/03/17-tracing-it-back-to-source_29.html
