Dauntless - Defiant - Resolute by Chill E.B.
Introducing talented singer, Maari Percy
I attended the second event, hosted by David Miscavige, celebrating the anniversary of the 1988 maiden voyage of the Scientology ship, the Freewinds, at Saint Hill Manor last night.
The subject of the event was the wonderful and heart-warming social betterment activities of the International Association of Scientologists (IAS). The civilizing influence the IAS is having on our society is astounding: by reducing the harm caused by the insidious psychiatric-pharma alliance; by preventing drug abuse; by improving human rights; by providing selfless disaster relief and much much more.
As is traditional with Scientology events, proceedings began with a musical performance. But in this case, we were treated to two musical performances: the first was a live rendition of this CCHR video, "CCHR: Psychiatry—Labeling Kids with Bogus 'Mental Disorders", performed by kids from Saint Hill.
The kids from Saint Hill: Stop the bogus psychiatric labeling of kids!
Then we watched the first UK public showing (as far as I am aware) of "IAS: Dauntless - Defiant - Resolute" video by humanitarian rapper, Chill E.B. It was so uplifting! It reminded me just how much the IAS is doing, globally, to make this world a better place.
A rising star you can not fail to miss in the video is the very talented singer, Maari Percy. What a great voice she has! I realised that I've seen her perform here many times before at the annual Saint Hill Gala Charity Concert, so it was great to spot her on screen.
Here's a photo I took of her during the 2007 Saint Hill Gala Charity Concert:
I think we'll be seeing a lot more of Maari in times to come!

Scientology is expanding like never before. Part of this expansion includes making all the materials available for all people of Earth in their own language!
To fulfill this purpose and back up the unrelenting expansion of Scientology, there is an urgent need of recording resources, voice talents, for all 16 major languages as well as all 34 pioneer languages. People are needed who have a good mastery of English as well as their own language and who qualify for such a task.
We are gathering data on any English as a Second Language Scientologists, who might be qualified to record LRH’s voice in their own native language.
International human rights group protest as public distrust of psychiatry mounts
Brighton: Hundreds of protesters opposing the junk science and dangerous drugs that make up psychiatry marched through Brighton last week.
Lady Margaret McNair and Brian Daniels of CCHR UK make it abundantly clear where they feel psychiatry's "Bible", the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) should be put!
The protest coincided with the opening of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Annual Conference at the Metropole Hotel on Kings Road. The march started in Victoria Gardens and finished outside the hotel to highlight the use of dangerous psychiatric drugs that have resulted in multiple deaths of teenagers who had been labelled with so-called ‘disorders’.
The protest was organised by psychiatric watchdog the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR).

Following the protest, a travelling exhibition was opened on the seafront opposite the hotel, exposing the hidden agendas and dangers of the psychiatric industry.
Called "How to Protect and Preserve Your Mental Health", the exhibition presented information not being made known by the psychiatric industry, information which CCHR says prevents patients making an informed choice about so-called treatment.

It also exposed the lack of transparency in the field of mental health, where only selective data is being made available to patients, and where the effects of psychiatric treatments including violence, aggression and suicide, are being washed over or even withheld.
CCHR says a series of needless young deaths could have been avoided if parents had been fully informed about psychiatric drugs and their effects, citing the recent suicide of 10-year-old Harry Hucknall, who hanged himself while on Ritalin and Prozac. The fact parents are not being told about the dangers of psychiatric drugs prescribed to children and adolescents has added to the mounting public distrust of the psychiatric profession, which has been worsened by problems within the profession itself.
This is the sight that the Royal College of Psychiatrists conference attendees were confronted with that day
Ahead of the Conference, Dinesh Bhugra, President of the RCP, came out saying mental health was in crisis due to staff shortages. His comments have come despite mental health receiving the largest portion of the NHS budget. According to Department of Health figures, mental health received £11.2 billion in 2010, an amount far in excess of what was invested in other areas such as cancer or heart problems.
Brian Daniels, spokesman for CCHR in the UK, says psychiatry is the only profession that has to continually advertise its failures as well as promoting how bad it is to get more government funding. He says any other profession would be in administration by now.
He also points to the fact that most doctors like to treat patients humanely, giving them a choice when it comes to treatment. He said, “Choices don’t exist in psychiatry. It’s no wonder doctors don’t want to go towards a profession where forced treatment is the order of the day, and where you are a jailer if the person doesn’t comply. Further, psychiatry has no scientific or medical basis and young doctors are recognising this.”
The exhibition ran from Tuesday 28 June to Saturday 2 July 2011.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is an international psychiatric watchdog group co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Dr Thomas Szasz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights.
