Logistics for new documentary film are now in place and cameras will begin rolling August 5, 2013. Twitter account and Facebook page is now up.
Following several conference calls in Canada and the United States, the resolute team are set to go, working long hours in final preparations for this monumental endeavour.
Wire Service Canada News Story:
Texan, Bert Leahy, the videographer who was hired by Scientology as a Squirrel Buster to harass former Scientology executive, Marty Rathbun, will begin filming Scientology documentary next week.
Squirrel Buster story in Village Voice by Tony Ortega:
“Calling themselves “Squirrel Busters,” the team of camera-wielding men were Scientologists on a strange mission.”
Leahy, a man with a passion for truth who pours his heart out to help others, denounced the evil that Scientology’s thugs were perpetrating against Rathbun, and now intends to warn the public, media, and government agencies about Scientology’s dangerous and abusive organization.
This ambitious filming endeavor, August 5-17, 2013, begins with a 27-city tour through America’s heartland beginning in Oklahoma, up to New York, and back down to Texas.
Joining Bert Leahy is Colin Henderson, Ex-Narconon patient and victim advocate — a man with the epic business management and logistical skills. Ex-Narconon patient and staff member, David Love, now a writer for the Montreal Examiner, will tag along to document the event. These three comrades met and worked together at the Narconon Arrowhead protest August 2012. A fourth participant, Paul Salerno, will stay behind and manage unforeseen logistics, but a surprise entry on the travelling team will be confirmed tonight.
Leahy hopes to interview ex-Scientologists in each city on the itinerary, even church members brave enough to talk on camera. Members of the general public will also be welcome to express their views. To date, numerous ex-Scientologists, Narconon victims, and individuals have been contacted for interviews.
Mark Bunker interviews Bert Leahy on ‘Knowledge Report’ in this embedded video:
The Tour will provide a great time capsule to gage where the Scientology protest movement is today through the eyes of 3 unique Scientology victims networking with other Scientology victims and ex-Scientologists across North America and abroad. The goal is to cover all sides, with all opinions welcome.
Scientology is well known for their human rights violation, and Leahy’s documentary film is directed at exposing Scientology’s front groups, Narconon, Citizens Commission on Human Rights, Association for Better Living and Education, and several more.
Scientology Controversies and Scandals:
Tour participants believe and insist that Scientology’s tax exemption should once again be revoked, as it was previously in a 1967 IRS audit.
Interviews will address Scientology’s barbaric policy doctrines of Disconnection (shunning), Dead Agenting, Fair Game, and the coerced/forced abortions in the Sea Organization – Scientology’s quasi-navy, now land-locked in Florida.
Post editing, Bert Leahy will be submitting “Scientology — Cult of Confusion” to film festivals on the silver screen and has high hopes of sooner rather than later.
