Part Two of ‘Mega Series –
Examiner writer, David Love, accepted an invitation to join a 27 city tour in the United States this August, 2013, with Bert Leahy, Paul Salerno, and Colin Henderson.
Videographer, Bert Leahy and businessman, Colin Henderson, have been fine tuning the details for quite some time now, and the purpose of the tour is to film a Scientology expose documentary. Leahy hopes to interview ex-Scientologists in each city, and even church members brave enough to talk on camera. The general public will also be welcome to express their views.
Today, Colin Henderson confirmed the complex, colorful graphics that will ‘wrap’ the vehicle is almost complete and photos will be published soon. The goal is attract public and media attention to the abuses inside Scientology and their drug rehabs, Narconon.
Paul Jay Salerno from California hopes to join the ‘Tour’ and he told me earlier today that he feels there’s a 75% chance he will be there to support the effort.
Salerno says “I was at one of the first Anonymous protests in the California Bay area back in 2008. My father knew L. Ron Hubbard and Hubbard would visit my dad’s ‘Jazz Club’ and he warned me to stay away from LRH.”
“On February 10, 2008, about 7,000 people protested in at least 100 cities worldwide. Within 24 hours of the first protest, a search for “Scientology” and “protest” on Google Blog Search returned more than 4,000 results and more than 2,000 pictures on the image-sharing site Flickr.”
Paul’s dad remembered Hubbard as “half a fag that owed a $2,000 bar tab” he said in an interview earlier today.
Paul said he was never in Scientology, and “I’m just a Guy with a sign who shows up at ORGS [Scientology], with a picket sign and feel it’s my responsibility to inform the public.” The 2012 Dublin Conference in Ireland was happy to have Paul join in on the festivities and participate in a ‘Mega Raid” protest at the Dublin ORG.
Colin Henderson is well known for his relentless mission to have Narconon Arrowowhead in Oklahoma shut down and be held accountable for the several deaths inside the dangerous rehab center. I met Colin online in December 2010. He immediately struck me as a very caring, yet strong-minded young man, endowed with the determination of a well-equipped army.
Colin voiced a resolve for justice and a will to help others in distress. He is a man of empathy and compassion. During our first phone conversation, I knew Colin was a kind person, but one to be reckoned with if crossed.
The entire ‘Tour” across America will take about 12 days or so and the Examiner will be publishing the story as it unfolds.
