    It's always worse than I think.

    This young woman has been through hell.
    Home schooling, which is quite common with $cnists, has neglected her so that she still has difficulty reading and writing.
    Then being on the EPF/slave labour camp for ages just made things worse.
    ( I was also on the EPF for a long time due to study problems, so I understand)

    It is the sort of stuff you could really make a film or documentary about.

    I know of another family member who joined the Sea Org at about 13 and also had trouble studying, so this rings a bell.

    At least she seems to have come out the other end quite well.
    Her parents should be done for neglect IMO.

    Hope she posts on here and makes some more videos.
    Get the message out there that this cult is abusive and harmful especially for young people.
    This video has made me feel angry but also sad, as I still have loved ones involved.
    How could I get them to view this video?

    I wonder if her father is Joe Keldani?
    "Joe Keldani, who ran Canada's Narconon from 1972 to 1978, agreed. "My orders were very exact: You are a separate organization. But every Thursday you have to make a report, and every detail goes uplines," he said. "On some issues, my reports went all the way up to Mary Sue Hubbard," wife of the founder."

    I also saw a listing that a Stephanie Keldani and Ashley Keldani (maybe her mom?) joined the SO at Flag in Nov. 2002.

    And she mentions her mom is writing a book?
    I'd read it!

    Or probably Ashley is Stephs sister, maybe?
    Well, it's interesting.
    I don't have time to look for it right now.
    I hope she comes here too.

    Joe & Ann Keldani, of Vancouver, BC, along with their daughters Haley, Ashley & Stephanie, blew the cult a decade ago. The kids appeared on a FLAG Sea Org recruit newsletter in 2002.!topic/alt.religion.scientology/OYOXZGazvNA

    Joe sent an "ultimatum" letter to the cult.

    It appears that Haley & Ashley have become skilled photographers & "Steph" is modeling.

    Thanks Smurf for:

    a powerful letter....

    #2 is kinda funny....."color coordinating emeters to room decor" ......what a statement! This is what the C of S and David Miscavige are now concerned about,,,,LOL. Sounds a bit "gay"....if I may say so.....

    All the new Ideal Morgues..and Super Power Building...and garish....and "over decorated..." ......

    I can imagine....David Miscavige going over color swatches and paint colors....and matching curtains.....and pillow colors.....what a joke.

    Wow, I find this video shocking and so sad! It's so wrong that Scientology abuses children this way. Just horrible and shameful that this is happening. Sad :-(

    I just looked at that newsletter and one name jumped out at me - Richard Pickles from the UK.

    He was the guy who bought the building in Gateshead that is supposed to be the new Sunderland Ideal Org.

    Colour-coordinated meters were de rigueur when we moved into the HGB in 1989. ITO got Helatrobus-purple Mark VIIs and ONLY purple ones. That was my least favourite meter colour at the time (still is, although I don't use the things any more).

    I remember a briefing by the (awful) CO ITO Rene Norton around 1994, in a corridor at midnight when we were doing some "upgrade" which involved tossing out "outdated" materials. She mentioned a rule about what was supposed to be in an auditor's desk drawer and nothing else, right down to where the stapler was to be placed. I definitely had some rebellious thoughts right then!
