Hi, Vidar and welcome,
Here is a 2010 Norway picket thread on whyweprotestrotest.net https://whyweprotest.net/community/thre ... iii.61706/
The Norske area on this message board has a few threads: viewforum.php?f=41
You can send private messages to some of the posters on those threads, if you want to know more about anti-Scientology action in Norway.
Thank you for the welcome Don Carlo, and for pointing me in the right direction for Norske area. There was little activity there, but that probarbly has something to do with what i read Mr. Heldal-Lund said somewhere: "Its just a doorbell"
Reports from last year hovered around 40,000 worldwide, but whatever the number it has surely fallen rapidly in just the last few weeks. In Norway? You're probably right.
Im glad to hear it has probarbly fallen. I mean, what if it is several millions of people "trapped" in this thing? Im just a bit surprised that i see the same faces over and over in videos. I havent seen any videos shot by scientology themselves yet though. I!ll come to that I guess.

Debbie Cook sent 12,000 emails on Jan 1st 2012. A census in the 1990's showed 25,000 in the US at that time. With the scandals, abuse and over redging I suspect 12, is closer to reality.
When Debbie Cook sent those emails, does that include kids like Shane in Australia? Is the 12.000 recipients all kinds of people in the church of scientology?
Maybe it is 12.000 people higher up the ranks, and a lot more people lower on the ladder? As i understand the CoS calls you a member as soon you have just bought a book or have taken one course or test?
Hi Vidar, and welcome to Operation Clambake. This site is the best resource in my opinion for anyone seeking information about $cientology.
As Radio Paul mentioned, Debbie Cook sent 12,000 emails to $cientologists. She said that she was in good standing with the church and that she was not connected with anyone who is not in good standing with the church, so I trust that all 12,000 of the email recipients were active $cientologists.
It is difficult to estimate the number of $cientologists worldwide. One thing is for certain, the Church of $cientology lies about how many members it has and lies about how many people are $cientologists. I estimate 25,000 at the most worldwide.
The best place to start is at the Operation Clambake main page. You can find answers to most questions about $cientology there. This message board is a good place to ask questions and discuss and debate topics related to $cientology.
Again, welcome to Operation Clambake.
Your English is excellent!
Hi bparker230, and thank you for your welcome. I will continue doing my research here, and
watch videos on xenutv, youtube and so on. Any other good sites? Is there a collection somewhere containing videos made by CoS people?
Hartley Patterson's pages on the subject.
An OCMB recommended read for anyone researching the topic.

Hi Sponge, and thank you for the good links
One other thing.. This Tommy Davis person? Its ridicoulus too see videos of him in the streets, and then interviewed on CNN talking against himself, and so on. He actually encourages, in the CNN interview, people to go online for themselves and make up their own minds, then he states out his own internet site, and claims all other sites are cybergossip and mongers? And that internet twists and bends the truth?
Who is he trying to fool? I really hope people everywhere doesnt fall for his propagandamachine called CoS.
