    The local area residents' committee organised and Anons and others participated. My group drove in from Paris and were fashionably late.We found the clams huddled behind their shiny old building (which is a charm-free office building, with outside paint looking shiny enough) and hundreds and hundreds of protesters out in front.

    I found Anonymous other than those I had the pleasure of travelling with, and Pete Griffiths.

    The speechifying was still going on when I arrived. Shortly after there was a final burst of applause, and then the clams starting walking around the building (presumably to get to the tent - the weather was not kind to them...). Halfway through the crowd milling around (right in front of the protesters), they started decicing to not walk around, with a few organising people (Damnation Navy? Skinny and in uniforms, in any case) turning clams around and shooing them back. So much for self determinedism, or whatever it is they obtain through the expensive mind-fuck.

    Not very long after that, a stretch minivan with blackened out windows arrived and then left ten minutes later. This was the most fancy van of two (and there were no other vans, maybe there was a bus somewhere). We could only guess that this was the extent of the confront of Capatain David "he is NOT insane!" Miscavige, since whoever was in there was hiding. (There is this "tone scale," and it has "hiding" on it - good, is it?)

    Serious amount of posts on that other board :

    Look for video of DM's speech on this blog :

    What Jens said :) DM even got someone's name wrong á lá Travolta at the Oscars. The sound of the protesters could be heard as he struggled to say stuff like: "Now we come to a long anticipated turning point in European history, a moment when a ribbon falls on a new ideal org and so signals a new era of tolerance, brotherhood , compassion and spiritual power, a breathless moment that will never be forgotten, so long as suns shine and planets swing."

    It would be nice if we had protesters' photos verifying the clam crowd (going into the street during the ribbon cutting). We have lots of photos taken after the ribbon cutting showing the street with the hedge in front of the ribbon side of the mOrgue, but that's incompatible with the crowd in the official photo. So, we need a shot taken during the ribbon cutting, from the corner showing the street along the short side of the mOrgue, a bit like my basel_1504_0 but taken 30 minutes earlier...

    nearest the camera in this shot, yeah. In the shots of the crowd at the front, there are German flags. All clams are created equal, except???

    (drat! wanted to link to 20min website, but that appears to have been WhyWeProtest'ed..., this is it, I'm 90% sure it has photos of the front of the crowd : )

    Hitler's Rants about Scientology's Expansion

    The Church of Scientology goes to great lengths to indicate it is rapidly expanding, not in its actual death spiral. Hitler has some words about the expansion claims and examines a picture of the crowd at the Basel Ideal Org grand opening ceremony.

  25. Website of Implenia was hacked. Unknown people placed a message on Switzerland's biggest building company concerning alleged connections to Scientology. An employee gave a talk at the Co$ ideal org opening. Company declares: This was employees opinion. No other connection of company to Co$ besides doing the renovations.

    As usual, scientology pretends that these individuals represent more than just themselves.

  27. The speech of at least one person shows congruence of opinions. He admires CCHR and Co$' fight against psychiatry.
    He spoke of the protestors as "Ritalin dependent" people. This guy holds the title of a professor and I wonder what the University he obtained it from might have to say about this. Reported to them, because for certain reasons I'm personally pissed by it.

    Anonymous hacks Swiss company for Ideal Org link

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, May 10, 2015

    Hey, this feels like a blast from the past. On April 24, Scientology opened its newest “Ideal Org” in Basel, Switzerland. It’s always fun to see which local dignitaries get suckered into appearing on the podium with Scientology leader David Miscavige. This time, one of the folks who spoke at the event included Marco Pulver, identified at Scientology’s website as “Executive Director of Implenia North-West Switzerland.”

    A major construction firm in Switzerland, Implenia’s website was hacked Thursday, and made inoperative. The hackers left the message, “Hello Implenia, your cooperation with organized crime Scientology is obvious and disturbing. Marco Pulver is one of the rats of Scientology and is not the only one in your company. While the Swiss government cares shit, we, the people respond for the people.”

    Implenia responded with its own message, put out in a press release:

    Implenia’s website was the target of a hacker attack on Thursday night. Hackers gained access to the website and posted false messages on it. At this stage it is still unclear who exactly is behind the attack. Implenia condemns this criminal activity and has filed charges against the unknown perpetrators. The attack seems to have been motivated by the recently completed conversion work done on the Scientology offices in Basel. Implenia would like to make it clear that it has no connections with Scientology.

    Gosh, it kind of feels like 2008 all over again, doesn’t it?

    We noticed that since the attack (which got wide media coverage in Switzerland), Marco Pulver’s description at Scientology’s site has been changed to “leading Swiss construction manager.”

    David Miscavige — Ugly American Abroad

    By Mike Rinder, May 11, 2015

    Miscavige is so out of touch with reality, that he no doubt doesn’t realize how arrogant and condescending he sounds.

    This is from the report on the ribbon yanking ceremony in Basel — as found at

    Switzerland is a nation long renowned for its exquisite craftsmanship of everything from watches to pocketknives and culinary delicacies that remain the envy of the world.

    And consistent with that uncompromising emphasis on quality, the first Scientology Ideal Organization (Org) in that European nation’s dazzling history opened its doors to a grateful public on Saturday in an historic and dignitary-studded dedication ceremony in the picturesque Swiss city of Basel.

    Really? Pocketknives? Culinary delicacies? Dazzling history? Dignitary-studded?

    Now we come to a long-anticipated turning point in European history. A moment when a ribbon falls on a new Ideal Org and so signals a new era of tolerance, brotherhood, compassion and spiritual power. A breathless moment that will never be forgotten, so long as suns shine and planets swing.

    Turning point in European history? The ribbon cutting on a tiny scientology church? Of course, it dwarfs events in Europe’s history. WW II. WW I. Waterloo. The Roman Empire. etc etc etc.

    To properly mark the import of the moment, Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center, summed up the Basel opening’s significance in addressing the audience—maintaining that the new facility gives the phrase “Swiss-made” a “whole new definition.”

    I can imagine how thrilled the Swiss are to know that Miscavige’s building gives a whole new definition to “swiss-made.”

    Mr. Miscavige continued, “Now we come to a long-anticipated turning point in European history. A moment when a ribbon falls on a new Ideal Org and so signals a new era of tolerance, brotherhood, compassion and spiritual power. A breathless moment that will never be forgotten, so long as suns shine and planets swing.”

    No words are adequate to describe this sheer idiocy.

    Joining the Scientology parishioners and Church officials on Saturday were luminaries representing all levels of the Swiss cultural landscape. They included Robert Mesey, Federal Justice of Switzerland, Ret.; Dr. Johann Bauer, representing the Department of Medicine at Ludwig Maximillian University; Ayhan Seker, Vice President, Basel Muslim Commission; and finally, Marco Pulver, Executive Director of Implenia North-West Switzerland.

    The best they could do is a retired judge, someone “representing” the Medical Department of a university in Munich, the “vice-president” of the Muslim Commission and someone from the construction company that built out the building. Wow, what an impressive line up for an event that was a turning point in European history.

    Does ANYONE actually buy this bs?

    VICE News published an article about the court case in Belgium today, and Basel was mentioned in the second-last paragraph. Quote:

    In Switzerland, the Great Council of the canton of Basel-Stat voted Thursday to restrict the rights of the church in the country — including its street recruitment methods. As a result of the new measures, the church could be asked to remove the giant cross adorning the Church of Scientology building in Basel. The Great Council has also questioned Scientology's religious status.


    Here's the article linked in the above quote:
