Scientology cult endangers Caribbean people’s health


This 2 May 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

Why The Government Just SHUT DOWN Scientology‘s Cruise Ship

Scientology‘s ship and spiritual retreat, Freewinds, was shut down and quarantined for measles on the island of St. Lucia. As an ex-Scientologist, I discuss their stance which may have led to the measles outbreak. I give you all of the details on everything you need to know about the Freewinds and what happened. Then, I discuss my mental health and give an update on my cult recovery therapy sessions.

From British daily The Guardian, 3 May 2019:

Scientology cruise ship leaves St Lucia after measles quarantine

According to Reuters Eikon shipping data, a Panamanian-flagged cruise liner identified as SMV Freewinds had been docked in port near Castries on Thursday. It was at sea and expected to arrive at Curaçao on Saturday.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

The Curaçao government is calling on residents who have been in the vicinity of the Freewinds cruise ship to report to the medical service. A crew member of the ship, owned by the Scientology movement, has gotten measles.

The ship was off the coast of Curaçao last week, where it is located more often. It also serves as an entertainment ship for onshore residents, says correspondent Dick Drayer. “When they are in the harbour, concerts are also done, and a few dozen people come to that.”

The Freewinds Measles Ship Seen in Aruba

When we were on an 11 day Caribbean Cruise from Tampa to New York in April 2019 we came across the MS Freewinds in port in Oranjestad, Aruba at the same time as our ship, the Norwegian Pearl.

There are some rather famous anti-vaccine celebrities who are Scientologists, such as Jenna Elfman, Kirstie Alley, and some others: here.

According to Dutch NOS TV, Scientology opposes mandatory vaccination.
