    Yep. It's all for the PR angle. I don't think it has anything to do with the cult gaining a conscience. I think it has a ton to do with anon, with media not being as afraid anymore, and folks standing up, that they no longer have a choice but to operate for "the greater good", which ends up equating to better inroads to those still in.

    Seems like progress.

    I've notice progress over the decades anyways, I was on the RPF in 1989, and again in 1996-2003, and a lot of things loosened up.

    RPFers in LA, when I was on the PAC RPF from Nov 2000 till March 2003, got to call family, but had to have either the D/RPF I/C or RPF I/C listening in on the conversation.

    RPFers in LA, same time slot (2000-2003) could CSW and go to free medical at the expense of the taxpayers, since the church did NOT pay for any medical. But at least the RPFers in LA got to go see medical.

    We got to use the dentist that also serviced the complex Sea Org members.

    Food in the PAC RPF was crumby at first, then improved by 2003 when I left, and the food at the Int RPF was the same excellent food that the Int Base staff ate, so no complaints on the food in all the total time I was on the RPF 1996 till 2003.

    When I was on the RPF's RPF, in 2002, I went on a leave to visit family, and I refused the escort sent with me, the escort tagged along, eventually leaving me to meet my family unaccompanied by him, and my escort then flew on to another city and went on his own leave.

    I imagine though, that those at the Int Base in the "SP Hole" are NOT given these same rights as the RPF members in ANZO or PAC though.

    There are still exceptions, meaning negative exceptions, to these improvements.

    I think that a planned 1 day protest at the sites of ALL of the Sea Org RPFs, well publicized in advance, and OFFER to help any RPFers wishing to LEAVE right then and there, assistance to leave, would be a good thing.

    I can tell you, there were MORE than a few times, had a bus come driven around the complex with a sign on its side saying "RPF Members Bus to Freedom, We'll Help You Start Your Life Over If You Want to Blow Right Now!", I'd definitely jumped on board.

    I've thought that it might take just a tiny bit of organization, like rent a house near the Sea Org installations, for a month or two, and bus those wanting to blow to the house, and then assist those who chose to blow with what to do next, jobs, return to family, etc. going onto welfare while they search for jobs and network them to other former ex Sea Org members willing to hire them, etc, etc.

    Right now, if Sea Org members want to really leave the RPF, they do, they did in my case, help me land a job, get a place to stay, and did this ALL prior to me finally leaving the RPF.

    So the Sea Org is, or was in my case, doing the actual transition steps, helping me go for job interviews, made sure I had the job, made sure I had a place to move into, when I moved OUT of the RPF, and into work.

    That was March 2003 in my case, after almost 7 years on the RPF.

    Michelle, I think it is convoluted think to even assume for a moment that OSA has any right to allow parents to see their children. It is just the converse of OSA not allowing parents to see their children. Neither is acceptable. In both instances, they have no right whatsoever to interfere in any way, shape, or form. It is a fundamental human right to maintain family relationships and any other relationship a person may have.

    He is out and my son is with me.

    He blew, escaped, took control of his life, made a stand, said thats enough..... yesterday and he is home with me and ready to begin a new life outside the clutches of scio.
    I am so proud of him and I am sure in the not to distante future he may just introduce himself here but all in his own time and on his decision.

    My son turns 11 next month - that'll make him only a year younger than Shane when he went into the SO.

    While all this has been going on I kept thinking how the hell would I react if my beloved boy was in Shane's shoes and I was in Adrian's.

    So it's been a nervous time for me, to say the least.

    I'm so glad that Shane had the time to go back to the RPF and see what the hell was going on - and then decided he could leave and did.

    I'm very proud for both of you - I think this may be the stone that causes the avalanche (here's hoping anyway.)
