WARNING: The Cult Awareness Network was destroyed by the Scientology crime syndicate in court and, when CAN went bankrupt, the Scientology criminal enterprise acquired the use and title of the Cult Awareness network. Now, if you call CAN, you will find yourself talking to the Scientology crime syndicate! This gross injustice was due to a massive frame up concocted by Scientology to destroy CAN and it worked, prompting a Judge to order all of CAN's records handed over to the very same criminal enterprise that most people contacted the real CAN to complain about and to acquire help fighting. Spread the word that the new Cult Awareness Network is now a Scientology crime syndicate front! - flr, feb 2003 From: Janardana Dasa Subject: Re: Picture > Yo, dude.

Actually, you should give 99% of the credit to the folks from your own Church who make all this PR possible through hard work and investigations. The Chicago group in particular (and DC) are real troopers. I love em all. What paper did the article appear in? I'm trying to keep tabs on all of what comes out quoting me, since occasionally newspapers have grossly misquoted me. This week we got a very large story (and two related stories) in the Pioneer Press association (about ten suburban Chicago newspapers) which really showed CAN in their true form - secretive, oppressive, and illegal. A regular public newspaper has had the insight finally to get beyond CAN's manipulations and lies. In this instance, CAN has flatly denied that I had any connection with them or that I was ever a deprogrammer, while one former CAN national director, caught off guard, admitted my role and admitted she was advising me in it while I was doing a deprogramming. Good job on the reporter's part. I almost feel at a loss now that CAN has been nationally exposed... I have spent so much time working with organizations and agencies opposing them, and now that the job is virtually done, well, what is there to do? . I guess I'll have more time for Krsna Conscious projects, and maybe a few COS courses (I'm waiting to do the Communications oriented one). Since you're out on the East coast (Washington, right?), you can soon obtain a complete, unabridged press packet from your org regarding all the work the Chicago Religous Freedom Project had done in the past two years, and the work of the Baltimore based Friends of Freedom (Rev., Dr. George Robertson). Alot of nice stuff we're compiling. Stay tuned. Also, a complete report on the 1990 CAN Conference here in Chicago is coming up ("...is there a deprogrammer in the house?"). It should be more humorous than anything else related to the topic. I hope you'll be interested in becoming a member of the Religious Freedom Project. There's still alot of clean-up work to do, and we welcome everyone's support. Talk to your local OSA staff. Also, from this Origin BBS (Krishna Yoga Foundation BBS), we have a conference that can be fed out there called FNET, the Religious Freedom Project Conference. Interested? Ask your local sysops to pick it up.. Hare Krishna! --- RBBSMail 17.3A * Origin: Krishna Yoga Foundation HST Chicago 312/743-6116 (RBBS 1:115/800.0)
