Scientology sent teams of paramedics and rescue workers into Nepal following the recent destructive earthquake. Now it’s time for Nepal to give back to Scientology. Yesterday the front group Youth for Human Rights held a benefit concert at the Butwal Nepal facility in Kathmandu, which appears to be a field surrounded by corrugated metal fences. We particularly like the multimedia presentation above, complete with a Windows error message.
We think the money raised will be used for training Volunteer Ministers to do “touch assists,” paying Scientology for their literature on Human Rights, and maybe just going to Scientology accounts directly. It seems to us that the crowd, while enthusiastic about the music, should not be donating to Scientology, but rather taking care of their families and communities.
Scientology organizations are composed of seven “Divs,” or Divisions, each containing three Departments. The Office of Special Affairs, for example, is in Div 7 – the Executive Division, and is also known as Department 20. But these photos were not taken at a Scientology organization, yesterday Yevgeny Frolov and Olga Tatujko from Visotsky Consulting Moscow led a seminar on implementing the Scientology Seven Div System for small and medium sized businesses. This is one of the core areas that the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises teaches business owners – assigning employees to one of the seven Divs and one of the 21 Departments so they can implement L. Ron Hubbard’s theories on efficient business management.

We have photos of the first of four Maiden Voyage events at the Mexico City Ideal Org, where the big news was that space plans for the del Valle Ideal Org have been approved. Each phase of an Ideal Org project is celebrated, and this one ensures that the Scientology divisions and departments are all arranged in a way consistent with the Ideal Org philosophy. If they don’t get this approval from top officials, there’s no point in renovating the building at all.
It also means that there is an empty Ideal Org building somewhere in Monterrey, Mexico, where the current del Valle Mission is located. The jump from Mission to Ideal Org is large, and we think this will be another Ideal Org funded by the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) rather than the local members, or “publics.”
In the photo above, from left to right, the new del Valle Ideal Org artists’ conception, the existing Mexico City Ideal Org, the Freewinds, and the still empty AOSH LATAM, or Advanced Org Saint Hill Latin America, which is a former shopping mall.
Below are the approved space plans, and they indicate the same as the photo above, that the del Valle Ideal Org will be about a ten-story building.
The current del Valle Mission occupies a few rooms in this office building on Rio Mississipi in Monterrey.
More photos of the event, below.
The All-Russia Research Institute of Automatics is a large equipment manufacturer and military contractor, which operates a residential summer camp for children ages 6 to 16 – “Camp Sparkle” – in the town of Odintsovo, near Moscow. Yesterday “Avirex Jr Exx” and other staff from the front group Narconon Standard visited the camp to present Scientology’s anti-drug message to the campers.
The Durban, South Africa Scientology Org will be hosting a Durban Sharks OT Committee’s OT Ambassador Program Kick-off Party on June 30th.
Come join the Durban Sharks OT Committee to kick-off the new OT Ambassador Program gotten at the MV Events aboard the Freewinds. Come find out how you can help the Crusade to make Durban Org Ideal. Chicken Curry will be served for those who need to eat dinner before Course. Everyone is welcome!
The answer to the question about helping Durban go Ideal is obvious – donations are needed, and in amounts that far exceed the means of their publics. Durbin has a small, non-Ideal org building that was donated to them in the past few years, and they have almost no money saved to buy an Ideal-sized building of 50,000 square feet or more. But why is there a picture of a shark on the invitation if they will be serving chicken curry to hungry Scientologists? One of the more popular rugby teams in South Africa are the Natal Sharks, and Durban is in the state of KwaZulu-Natal. Sports in South Africa are divided along ethnic lines, and rugby is the sport of those of Afrikaner descent. Many Scientologists in Durban and other South African orgs are Afrikaners, and some are not truly fluent in English.
The reference is clear – it’s as if the New York org were calling itself the Yankees, but with a different logo. Scientology didn’t copy the Natal Sharks logo, so where did it come from? A quick search tells us it was designed for St. James High School in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. So now we have a Myrtle Beach logo for the Durban Scientology Org.
The Nation of Islam Mohammad Mosque #95 in St. Petersburg held an event yesterday with Scientologist Rev. Alfreddie Johnson to recruit members of the Nation to train as Class V Auditors at the Tampa Ideal Org.
The Naming Ceremony was written by L. Ron Hubbard, and is the Scientology equivalent of baptism. This ceremony was held yesterday at the San Francisco org.
We previously reported that Scientology planned a protest at the Royal College of Psychiatrists meeting in Birmingham, England today. The protest is happening at ICC Birmingham, a large convention center.
Above, Scientology has set up a tent nearby to display their anti-Psychiatry exhibits and distribute literature.
