Anonymous Operation Reconnect

Post by Plups » Tue Feb 19, 2008 10:55 am

Hi Everyone,

First time poster here.

Just a "heads up" about the Anonymous announcement today of plans for April - to be called "Operation Reconnect". (Here's the enturbulation thread)

Anonymous Announces Operation Reconnect

"LOCATION UNSPECIFIED - In their continuing efforts against the Church of Scientology, Anonymous is launching Operation Reconnect. Projected to take place in the month of April, this operation will shine a spotlight on families torn apart by the Church of Scientology. "The aim is to bring these families together," commented an organizer who identified himself as David Mudkip.

The name of this operation stems from the Church of Scientology's notorious 'disconnection policy', under which individuals within the Church are forbidden contact with those whom the Church deems to be a threat to its security. This policy is used frequently by the Church of Scientology to separate families, creating a rift between those outside the Church and those trapped within it. This also serves the purpose of removing any social supports an individual has outside the Church, making it more difficult for them to end their affiliation with this organization.

Since Anonymous set out on a campaign against the Church of Scientology, a number of individuals have stepped forth with accounts of their personal experiences within the Church. Many of these people described the negative influence exerted by the Church of Scientology on their families. On a date which remains to be announced, some of these individuals will be relating their experiences to the public as speakers at peaceful demonstrations.

We are Anonymous.

We have Awoken.

We stand as many. Thinking as one.

It looks like there'll be a protest event for Operation Reconnect here in Edinburgh, Scotland too - probably on April 12th. Given the excellent turnout and interest at yesterday's demo, it should be a great awareness-raiser.

I'd like to remind everyone that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect and encourage individuals and communities to support children and families.

To me, this ties in directly with the theme of the upcoming protest, Operation Reconnect.

The Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) (42 U.S.C.A. §5106g), as amended by the Keeping Children and Families Safe Act of 2003, defines child abuse and neglect as, at minimum:

* Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation; or

* An act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm.


This definition of child abuse and neglect refers specifically to parents and other caregivers. A "child" under this definition generally means a person who is under the age of 18 or who is not an emancipated minor.

We know of too many cases where these atrocities have occurred unchecked within the organization of Scientology.

For more information about NCAPM, visit: http://www.preventchildabuse.org/index.shtml

If you would like to incorporate the official 2008 logo into your signs, I am certain PCA would appreciate the help in furthering their awareness drive.
