Nice finish to last year's marathon, meeting up with the Lord Mayor of Westminster to speak about our work helping to raise awareness of the harmful effects of drugs - a very nice lady!

Scientology in Schools
How do schools keep getting taken in by Scientologists sneaking nonsense "science" into their classroom under the guise of "drugs education"?
The latest bulletin from Scientology's offshoot Narconon boasts that 33 schools in Cornwall have been given drug education presentations, two in recent tours by Peter Dwan - who appeared on Channel 4's 4thoughtseries last year talking about how Scientology had saved him from alcoholism.
"The schools given Peter's presentations have been promoting Peter and Narconon to other schools and now a third tour is planned for early May," reports the newsletter. It claims one group of schools is seeking funding "from the local Navy Base" to bring Dwan to give his talks.
Roseland Community College in Truro even put a news item on it's website praising Dwan's "exciting and entertaining facts about how taking drugs and alcohol can affect your life". It's just a pity they aren't, er, true facts.
As reported in Eye 1321, Narconon's education booklets warn children against taking prescription medication and plug L. Ron Hubbard's barmy "science" about vitamins. Health experts around the world have warned against Narconon's rehab programmes, which entail long sessions in a sauna and high doses of vitamins.
Last year the Church of England told it's London primary schools to stop accepting talks or activities from Narconon, but the organisation still managed to give talks to around 2,000 pupils in Newham and Islington.
The latest e-mail dispatch from Narconon UK arrived April 14th, 2013:
So that's half of the 'special bulletin' from two weeks ago?
Not so 'special' after all.
Or maybe they've had radio silence.
It's a repeat mailing of the March 28th/2013 flyer.
Latest news from Marathon for a drug-free uk 2013 site
In 2012, we ran 130 miles in 8 days, distributed over 10,000 Truth About Drugs booklets, presented to 180 school kids, held "Drug-Free Pledge" signing events in town centres along the way, had meetings with 13 police and other officials, and had a fantastic time to boot!
Here is the route for 2013; Brighton -> Edinburgh: an ambitious increase on last year. We already have 10 advance bookings at 7 schools (some are double-bookings) with a (ball-park) reach of 2,000 kids.
If you think this is a worthwhile game to play, and want to join in, in some form or another (not necessarily as a runner) then please, do get in touch

The team was comprised of two athletes from London and six Hungarian runners who have carried out annual cross-country anti-drug marathons in Hungary for the past 10 years. To covere 130 miles in a week, runners clocked an average of 18 1/2 miles each day. The event was organized and sponsored by the Church of Scientology of London.

About The Church Of Scientology And The Truth About Drugs Education and Prevention Materials
The Church of Scientology sponsors one of the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education and prevention campaigns. When young people are provided with the truth about drugs—factual information on what drugs are and what they do—usage rates drop commensurately
When has Scientology ever done that?

The Drug- Free UK "multi marathon" run from Brighton to Edinburgh set off last week and will be jogging through various towns over the next month. "Free booklets highlighting some succinct truths about drugs will also be given out" reported one running magazine. How very worthy!
However, over on the event's Facebook page one excitable runner provides a telling detail: "We are going to ENLIGHTEN of the harmful effects of drugs MORE THEN 2800 CHILDREN with lectures, run 600 MILES through 32 CITIES and distributing 50,000(!!) Truth about Drugs booklets!!!!"
That's not the calmly informative "The Truth About Drugs: Know the Score" leaflet from the Department of Health. It's the scary booklets handed out in schools gulled into inviting Scientolgists to give drugs "education" assemblies (eye passim), pushing the cult's belief that all drugs, including anti-depressants, painkillers and other prescription medication, are "essentially poison".
More details on Scientologist front group Drug-free UK here:
All I could see when I read the above was this
"Becoming an expert.....Narconon drug education talk and its presenter lie"
Here comes more of the scare tactics!
