React: Respond to the makers

A report about the Scientology Church in the Netherlands. In recent months, members of this church have left en-masse. One of them is the founder and late director of Scientology in the Netherlands, Caspar de Rijk. He disagrees with the way in which Scientology treats the philosophy of American founder, Ron Hubbard.

Together with other ‘apostates’ he strives for a return to the foundations of Hubbard’s thinking. Meanwhile, due to his criticism he has been introduced to Scientology’s notorious system of sanctions. He is not allowed to see his daughters, who are still members of the church, and from inside the church a defamation campaign is being waged against him.
