Scientology’s “Child Labour Camp” In Australia – Today Tonight

Full text here: In the middle of suburban Australia is a secret compound that’s labelled ‘degrading’ and ‘inhumane’, with allegations of keeping children prisoner.

Right in the middle of a quiet suburb is a place where children are separated from their parents, and forced to work full time for no pay, and live in squalid conditions.

Those who’ve survived this place say they were brainwashed into believing they could not leave. They say they did not deserve the shocking treatment dished out.

A young man who escaped the place with the help of his father, Shane Kelsey says “I lived in that garage for about a year and a half, maybe two years.”

Shane is now 21-years-old. Until just over a year ago he had never used the internet, watched television or followed the media.

Report on the RPF Base in Dundas from 2009.
