A query picked up from WWP:

" So if Freewinds is suddenly shifting a lot of port calls back to Bonaire, this begs the question of where did Freewinds just get booted out from? Which Island is Freewinds suddenly no longer going to? "

She hasn't shifted anything from anywhere. This is currently her normal ABC routine, mostly Aruba, occasional overnight in Curacao and a weekly toilet trip to Bonaire.

The published schedule up to April 2013, which may or may not be fulfilled, doesn't show '60 plus' visits to Bonaire over this period (as the WWP poster said) but only 32 or 33 as they count her in and they count her out, This is because she stays overnight (must have leaky pumps). The other cruise ships just go for the day and sail off about 6 pm.

Freewinds was in Cartagena, Colombia for a few days, from Tues 28 August but Friday 31 August she snuck out leaving no forwarding address and is now Out of Range. Not the neighbouring port of Santa Marta and not the ABC islands, which are In Range and where she would have turned up by now. ???

And as of this morning, she is still out of range. Isn't that many days a long time for a ship to not report its position?

"Freewinds" Floating Temple of Scientology in Cartagena

Posted on September 10, 2012
In the Port Society remains a luxury cruise called "Freewinds", who last weekend became the setting of a jazz concert to benefit Festicinekids.

Freewinds, a vessel of 134 meters in length, is home to the so-called Service Organization Flag Ship, a religious retreat for followers of Scientology who have the "most advanced levels of spiritual counseling."

Scientology is a religious congregation of which are part known Hollywood stars, businessmen and politicians around the world, the subject of much criticism and accusations of having built a business empire through brainwashing, threats and extortion.

On the website of the congregation said the ship Freewinds "provides a safe, attractive and free of distractions, it is appropriate to deliver this level of auditing deeply spiritual."

The ship, as practitioners of this cult, is "the only place that a Scientologist can go and be sure you can devote himself entirely to his religious practice and in the company of people who share their religious commitment and perspective on life in general ".

The cruise also performed religious conventions and seminars for senior leadership levels of Scientology churches around the world, as well as events organized especially for members of a country.

The ship can accommodate 600 people, has 9 floors and 21 feet deep.

In 2009 he had been in Cartagena to undergo repairs, amid a controversy caused by the presence of asbestos in the vessel, in quantities greater than those permitted and which endanger health, a charge that ultimately could not be verified.

Some have said that the presence of the Freewinds in Cartagena is to consolidate the presence of the church in Colombia, where there are already churches em Bogota and Cali, and Cartagena and it seems that many Colombians have come on board to take courses that help them solve the problems of his life, after paying a heavy amount of money.

Some of the characters that belong to Scientology, founded by L. Ron Hubbard, are Tom Cruise, Dustin Hoffman, Nicole Kidman, Oliver Stone and Larry King.

SCANDAL

One of the latest scandals of Scientology occurred because an adept named Valeska Paris, gave an interview to ABC News, which reported that nearly took prisoner on that ship, working in the engine room because his faith had reached a sufficient level for the luxury area.

Paris said that Scientology had taken entire fortune to his father and that it was the church leader, David Miscavige, who commanded the ship, and at first I was blinded by know, but ultimately disappointed, to find that was "a man who ran a church and took advantage of his faithful, who hid behind religion to live require contributions and taking money from people and live like a king", he told the ABC.

Hi Dwarf

Yes long time Out Of Range but I noticed that at the same time there were NO ships recorded for Cartagena, so I thnk the problem was with the Colombian port AIS system. She was gone (or the system was down) from 31 August to 7 September, when she showed up in the same place.

I don't imagine it was in any way relevant to our interests.

I just reckoned that his sources were maybe ten or more years out of date and that his heart was in the right place.

At least he mentions all the bad things about the boat and stirs up some asbestos dust, which can do no harm.

Checking in on Sunday 16 September and the floating org is still at the quay in Cartagena. That's since 28 August, three weeks tomorrow.

A jazz concert on board was patronised by a small collection of the local elite (see WWP thread Tracking of the Freewinds for pix).

Monday 17 September: still at Cartagena, Colombia.
Tuesday 18 September: to Oranjestad, Aruba, eta this evening at 22.00.
Friday 21 September: still in Oranjestad.

Tuesday 25 September: she has now been in Oranjestad (Aruba) for a week.
Thursday 27 September: still in Aruba. Such a long stay is unusual. But I think Aruba is pro-Cult. Poor saps.

David Campbell, Beck's daddy, posted on YouTube on 24 September to urge musicians to come to the Freewinds for a Music convention, scheduled to start 27 September (Thursday) for a week.

He says ".. drop what you are doing, it's only for a week! And then in about 10 days from now you will be leaving the ship ..." It is evidently something of a selling point that they will be allowed to leave.

https://whyweprotest.net/community/thre ... er.105437/

If the talking zombie wasn't known to be David Campbell I'd have said this was Davie Dwarvenfuhrer a few years down the line on a bad hair day.

Thursday 27 September: scheduled start of the week's Music Convention.
Friday 28 September: the Failboat is still in Oranjestad, Aruba.
Saturday 29 September: she and her hapless musician wannabees are cruising somewhere Out of Range.
Sunday 30 September: this again was some kind of blip in the AIS signal. She was still in Aruba but left this morning at 03.30 approx. for Kralendijk in Bonaire (where she has the habit of discharging waste water) eta. 10.15. So no excitement there.

Have begun a new post for October 2012.

Well it was all in Spanish and it was a good try. It shows how little they know about Scientology, though the article give the impression they don't like it much. Any Spainfags to poon the paper with a few links?
