    Court liquidated the Petersburg Foundation "Say Drugs - no!"

    Moscow. November 18. INTERFAX.RU - Leninsky Court of St. Petersburg eliminated Charitable Foundation "Say Drugs - no! Say life - yes!" due to the fact that its activities do not correspond to the charter, as well as because of the disturbances in the financial statements.

    As reported by "Interfax" on Wednesday, coordinator of the Fund Irina Kopylov, the organization does not plan to appeal the decision.

    "The court made a decision. We agreed with the claims of (the prosecutor's office requested the organization to eliminate and exclude information about it from the register - IF), and they were satisfied. The main reason was a lack of funding," - she said.


    "There has been a lack of donations. The implication was that the fund was to accumulate far more money than was in fact", - he explained the Kopylov.

    The petition prosecution available to the "Interfax", noted that the reports for 2012-2014 is provided by the fund in the Ministry of Justice, there is no information on the amount of money spent on charity. At the same time during this period to the account of the fund received 625.9 million rubles. The fund is not systematically reported to the supervisory authority on the implementation of welfare programs.

    According to the law, at least 80% of contributions received should be directed to charities during the year of receipt. The Court found expenditure of contributions to the distribution of leaflets in schools, lectures, pickets and flash mobs, bicycle races, "round tables" and seminars, as well as the rental of premises (rental spent more than half of the funds) unlawful.


    The prosecutor's office has also been found that the Fund actually led activities are not the legal address registered in the Ministry of Justice.

    Meanwhile, a source familiar with the situation, "Interfax" that the charitable fund actively supported the Church of Scientology, which is not consistent with the charter of the organization.

    However, the coordinator of the Fund stressed that the organization "Tell drugs - no" is a secular and acts as an independent legal entity.

    "We have volunteers, Scientologists and Scientology, we select our people's religious views. Any person who promotes a healthy lifestyle, can cooperate with us. At all events, actions and pickets heard only one idea:" Tell drugs - no "- said Kopylov.

    As reported on the official website of the foundation "Say Drugs - no", the organization engaged in drug prevention among youth in schools, as well as "major events and promotions with the distribution of leaflets against drugs."

    Earlier Petersburg Leninsky court ruled to liquidate the charity fund "Youth for Human Rights". Prosecutor demands to liquidate the company and to exclude information about it from the register were met.

    According to the source, the supervisor claims concerned the discrepancy between the actual activities of the organization and stated in the charter. The interviewer noted that the fund including distributed Scientology literature and contact with children and youth institutions of the city.

    The press service of the company reported that the reasons for liquidation of the Fund were financial. Interlocutor "Interfax" said that information about the activities in the interest of Scientology is not true.

    They took money under false pretenses & spent it as they pleased.

    Hmmm, sound exactly like scientology.

    Good on shutting it down regardless of the name it tries to hide under.

    At the time, I believe 625 million rubles would be worth about US $6 million. That's $2-3 million a year. Where did that come from? Public Scios?

    Glad to see the Russian court saw through the wolves pretense that it is there to help with the drug problem, but it actually is just a ploy to gather money and support for the criminal organization known as Crime center of scientology criminal activities.

    Their byline could be; 'Don't spend money for drugs, instead give money and goodwill in support of scientology where it will be sure to find better criminal uses and help drive people into bankruptcy, break up families, enslave your fellow citizens for pennies per hour, and create general or specific mayhem in the lives it touches for that goodwill and money'. 'scientology the super power-full way to get high on crime'

    :thumbsup: This is a very important matter, as it documents the issues related to the church's strategy of using the front groups to advance. How timely it is that Chris Shelton is working on a new series of videos dedicated to explaining the purpose of front groups and why people need to understand what they are about in the grand scheme of things called Scientology expansion. As Chris posted recently:

    One of the main reasons I put my efforts towards eradicating Narconon and these drug-free related front groups is because, as a former new public FSM, I know the purpose for them as part of the ' "Clearing" of the planet'. If anything is helping Scientology expand these days, it's the the facade of lies that keep these groups going. Using the corporate veil of "secular" entities and grand promises for a better world, the cult has managed to infiltrate many areas of society across the globe with slick twisting of words, false promises and propaganda via their "social betterment" programs. Their deceitful outreach to unknowing members of communities, pretending it's not Scientology when it is, as been effective. My hopes are to see people enlightened and the ties made untied.

    It's working in so far as Narconon because of the multitude of internet and legal complaints filed against the program. But it's just the tip of the front group iceberg. This Russia matter is so important in documenting these ties and lies and it is wonderful that governments are catching on.

    We have a long way to go and everyone's help is needed to isolate where these front group programs are being seeded or flourishing. Most likely there are programs being promoted in your own area or state. It's just a matter of knowing the programs names and searching the local news for any him of their invasion. Especially the drug education programs and the study tech into the schools. Anonymous and exes have stumbled upon program press releases announcing the connections and have jumped on these matters fast and have enlisted the help of in letter writing campaigns to those communities so mislead and the results have been very good. But we really need knowledgeable exes to be on alert in their areas before these projects are already approved and in use. Prevention of cult infiltration and expansion is the key.

    Below is a list of program names that are actually fronts for Scientology. It's not complete but it's got many of them identified. Bookmark the page and keep an eye out for these in your area. Contact me if you need help in exposing the projects found.

    This wiki article on Front Organizations explains what they do and includes names of some of the Scientology fronts.

    I'll try my best to create a separate thread on all this when I have time but for now, this will have to do.

    Kudos to Russia for catching this... and for exposing Scientology and it's ties to a major front group:thumbsup:

    :thumbsup::happydance::yes::hattip::goodposting::biglove::heartflower: Fantastic post AnonyMary

    To add historical perspective and what OSA and one of its branches is focused on:

    FLAG ORDER 1890

    26 MARCH 1969

    CONFIDENTIAL

    ZONES OF ACTION

    We are now operating in three zones of action.

    1) To boom Scientology wherever possible. Some major points are to capture medical interest, to capture students interest with a book or study, to put in an ECAOs, to keep bad ethics and false reports out of orgs, etc.

    2) To invade the territory of Smersh, run it better, make tons of money in it, to purify the mental health field. Part of this is redefining Quackery (which they haven't defined) as "The action of selling service and refusing refund of the fee if the customer isn't satisfied and demanding it be stamped out, by getting medical equipment, drug and construction companies on our side and push these actions, by giving real service, by stamping out death camps, by grabbing huge contributions and appropriations all as Mental Health not Scn. if these Smersh nuts run it all, we can boom it.

    3) Contact and make friends with and organize all minority groups until we have the biggest group on the planet. By cheering them up in their defense and attack actions, organizing and International Minority Group organization, feeding them Gung Ho and PRO policies, making friends with even the biggest enemies of the West, we will be able to avert Fascism now taking over in the West.

    These are the major targets. If what we are doing does not add up to making our SO a good primary nucleaus [sic] and the three targets above then it is an unnecessary action.

    This is a 3 pronged all out attack, carefully studied out as the important zones to give us final victory.

    “And toward the end of June in 1950, I first sensed the truth. And the maxim – bring order to your own house before you attempt to order next door.

    Until we had the third and fourth dynamics demonstrably in hand technically, we could not answer the question. We’ve each had his own idea of what we should be doing with it and each of these ideas is right to the degree that it’s right for each of us.

    The third and fourth dynamics subdivide. Any third breaks down into many activities and professions, a neighborhood, a business concern, a military group, a city government, etc., etc. The fourth dynamic breaks down just now mainly to races and nations.

    Now, just suppose a Scientologist were to consider himself a professional only for the purposes of treating and repairing or even starting again these third and fourth zones?....

    .....
    "We didn't set out to be a political force. We don't care to be one.

    BUT WE ARE BEING FORCED INTO TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE WEST."

    There is a lot more but the above is a taste......

    Yep. The OP statement really, REALLY does an excellent job of quickly summarizing the evil weasels in a nice, easy to understand manner, and for this day and age.

    This always seems to be the big challenge for all of us that want to see scn go bye-bye forever.

    It's like: you always have to explain scn, what it is, etc (seriously too much effort needed just for this), before you can even begin to explain the what/why it exists and is so totally twisted.

    Quite sure hubbtard knew this, yet now internet is quite helpful, just not quick enuff (for me at least).

    Thanks Mary for emphasizing this in your efforts!
