New article about abestos on the Freewinds

Post by SomebodyElse » Tue Apr 29, 2008 6:43 pm

This was at A.R.S from Andreas
This just showed up in the local newspaper today (sorry if already
posted):

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=287791

[START]
WILLEMSTAD: During refurbishing and reparatory work, which involved
removing the ceiling and panelling on cruise ship Freewinds, blue
asbestos was released and ended up in the ventilation system.

Freewinds' captain did not report this when it's own personnel were
working on the ship on the Mathey warf in Otrobanda. The Curacao
Drydock Company (CDM), where the ship was taken for reparatory work on the hull, heard from the surveyor that there may be asbestos on the
ship. The captain acknowledged the incident and said that after the
incident Freewinds had some investigation done. Keeping the incident
quiet became more noticeable when it turned out that the 40-year-old
ship contatined blue asbestos.

The question is whether or not the blue asbestos dust, which can cause
cancer, can be removed from the ship. The CDM has stopped all work on
the ship. The ship was sealed and isolated and experts will investigate and measure the presence of asbestos dust in the hull and surrounding areas. Commissioners Eugene Rhuggenaath (Economic Affairs) and Humphrey Davelaar (Public Health) said on Friday.

CDM interim director Frank Esser, deputy head of the Department of
Labour Affairs Christiene van der Biezen were accompanied by two
inspectors and head of the health Department Tico Ras. Samples taken
from the panelling last week by inspectors that were sent to the
Netherlands showed that they contained significant amounts of blue
asbestos. After an extraordinary meeting, the Executive Council
decided to inform the public in general about the incident to avoid
remours and panic.

The CDM personnel were also informed via the media because it was
impossible to gather all the workers Friday evening to personally give
them the information.
[END]

Take care.
Hey, we've been saying that for years but now we have absolute proof in the form of this article.

Curacao's harbor is its livelihood and treasure. It shouldn't be polluted by the Freewinds. I wouldn't want my boat next to this filthy scow.

Is Freewinds sneaking dusty sweepings into the Curacao dump? That would be bad.

I hope the Curacao people either seize the ship and condemn it or heavily fine the CO$ for such a blatant disregard for peoples health!!!

Everything the "church" (sic) of scientology does has some really disturbing aspect to it that should be scrutinized and called on by the rest of humanity. The CO$'s callousness has gone on far too long unchecked!!!!

Of course knowing how sick the CO$ they'll likely come up with a solution like this:

Seriously though, I feel sorry for those people who have been exposed to

crime and get them a Class Action Lawsuit going.

Anyone wanna call the above phone numbers and see what they say?
If they don't say it's cancelled then tell them the story.
If they do say it is cancelled then ask them why.

This is another HUGE footbullet for Davey and his Cult.

In an earlier thread, Navy/Peter Schilte reported that he wrote to the Health Department in the Netherland Antilles alerting them to the blue asbestos situation on the Freewinds and apparently they conducted an inspection on the ship. Their results are contained in this letter:
Willemstad, august 10 2007.

Subject: Asbestos inspection on the Freewinds.

Dear Sir,

Because of your email about blue asbestos on board the Freewinds the Director Shipping and Marine has carried out an inspection.

The inspection on board the Freewinds was done by two qualified and independent bureaus: the American Quest Environmental Inc. and the classifying department of the ship named Det Norkse Veritas.

The inspections carried out concentrated on air ventilation systems, passenger areas, working and public areas and staircases on board the ship.

These inspections revealed there is no concentrations of asbestos being found in the air, nor is there any asbestos found in the airconditioning system of the ship.

I thank you for your concerns and hope to have given satisfactory information.

with many greetings,

Ir. Maurice Adriaens
Secretary of Traffic and Transport.
viewtopic.php?highlight=asbestos+freewinds&t=22573

This news article prooves they were either lying through their teeth or didn't really do the inspection at all.

Folks, this could be HUGE. The Freewinds death ship may never set sail ever again. How will Davey spin this to his loyal followers? How many people have gotten sick or gotten cancer from the blue asbestos on the Freewinds?

I was on the Freewinds once? Does that mean that I could be a victim of cancer at some point because of this exposure?

Is this just more of the CoS debris field or is the Karmic Vortex as Swifty put it starting to rage in full gear?

Cheers!

About a year ago I reported the asbestos on board the Freewinds to the
local Health Authorities. They subsequently did order an investigation
which was done by two different companies, namely the American Air
Quest Invornmental Inc. and specialists from the ship Det Norske
Veritas. No asbestos was found floating in the air or ventilation
system.

Image

So apparently there was no danger for crew and passengers.
What is happening now will cost the CULT lots of money. Go figure: The
complete ventilation system needs to be thoroughly cleaned as is the
ship itself. And they need to take precautions when continuing the
works.
And they say that the Tech raises your IQ? If so, than why for
crissake they wanted to go poking in the asbestos??

One of the signs is shortness of breath. Usually you need to be exposed to it for months/years for it to cause Asbestosis, or Mesothelioma. The fact that Scientology brainwashes its parishioners to believe that Cancer is caused by a "2d loss" and that clip of Blubbard stating that smoking doesn't cause cancer is going to come back and bite them in the ass. Smoking actually amplifies your chance of getting cancer when working around asbestos. I know people who were doing building renovations for Scientology, that handled asbestos with their bare hands, with no breathing equipment. I know lawyers are on the hunt for asbestos exposure, I'm sure they'll have a field day with Scientology...eventually.

I keep seeing those ads on TV for Law Offices who deal specifically with Mesothelioma cases!

I hope every person who was ever aboard the Freewinds calls one of these Law offices in order to sue the CO$!!!!!!

In fact here in one place to start for people:

http://www.mesotheliomanews.com/


And to answer your question BTs2Free, unfortunately yes!!! It can take up to a few decades to develop but any exposure makes it a possibility!!!


P.S. On a side note what a crock, the fake organization (of CO$'s) Citizens Commission on Human Rights (sic) convening on the boat of death!!!! :roll: :roll: :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Peter,

I hope that you are now writing another letter with this article that has proof of asbestos aboard the Freewinds to your local Health Authorities! I'm curious how they'll respond to their failure to report the truth!!!

Not to worry! Most of the people (sea org, crew etc.) with long term exposure to the "Deathwinds" asbestos will probably die of other
"Scientology causes" long before the asbestos cancers can take
effect.

From Lermanet.com Exposing the CON for over 10 years! on ars today:
A paraphrase of the new fundraising letter to be sent out by David
Miscavige,
the leader of the amazing shrinking scam of scientology

Dear $cientologist,


Because the word $cientologist has fallen into such disrepute,
and in an effort to try telling the absolute truth for a change, I
will from here on refer to $cientologists as 'rubes'.. okay?


Attention all rubes, because this scam is only about getting
your money and retaining as much of your money as possible, and yes it
is very expensive to pay lawyers to lie on our behalf to silence those
who do not believe Hubbard's lies, and yes we were too cheap to
procure a proper vessel for perpetrating the fraud of scientology upon
your enfeebled minds, and yes we got a good a deal on this rustbucket
because the previous owners knew it woldbe impossible to reomve the
asbestos, and YES we knew that the only good scientologist in
scientology is a dead scientologist, because dead people can not sue
us for fraud.


So we purchased an old ship filled with deadly blue asbestos...
and like all bad news that might affect the health of a scientologist
we covered it up, because L Ron Hubbard said "If it is true for you it
is true for you". So simple, if you do not know about this toxic dust
that slowly kills you it will not be true for you, geddit? This is how
we keep scientology working. Any questions?


" Yes, I have a question "


MAA, declare that person an SP and throw them over the side.


Anyone else have a question?


So after hiding this toxic poison for decades, we now must
induce every scientologist who has ever been on the Freewinds..to do
the Purification rundown at their own expense, and yes, you see we
have no liability because we did not force you to take your next
breath, you literally, "pulled it in" - all those billions of
microscopic razors to destroy the cell walls in your lungs, and yes,
ironic isn't it, that in your old age as you wheeze and gasp for
breath after the asbestos has destroyed your lungs, you will laugh
along with me about the name.. ha ha, they even had the nerve to call
it the "Free Winds"... while you beg for your next breath....


Oh and rubes, we need you to donate more money so we can buy
another ship to take you beyond the 10 mile limit where we can really
practice scientology without interference of the psychiatric
controlled governments of the world.

THIS

Same that happened to Scientology's Testing Center, here in Hollywood.
Turned out that had Asbestos in it, and it's been closed/gutted for 3-4
years, now.

They're STILL using their card tables out on the Sidewalk: SUPER TACKY.

This ship not only deserves to be closed, forever, they need to notify
EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has ever been on it, self included. (I was only on it one week, thank goodness, but many people have been on it for weeks, months, some years).

Thanks to all helping expose this CON,

Tory/Magoo~~
