A letter of surrender, written from the basement of Scientology's 'Big Blue' HQ - 2019-02-27
Last time, Sunny Pereira described how she was declared a "suppressive person" because she had briefly dated another woman in the Sea Org. (Homosexuality is considered a "perversion" in Scientology.) Sunny's punishment? Four months being held in the basement of Scientology's "Big Blue" headquarters in Los Angeles, three floors down below the entrance door you see in the photo above. Sunny now has another letter for us to see, one she wrote her mother from that basement.
In Feb 2004, after I had been under 24/7 watch and given a suppressive person declare order, I had done the first two steps of "redemption" as covered in Hubbard policy.
Shortly after writing that Step B, I reneged on my public announcement and wanted to get everything reviewed. I did not agree that the SP declare was correct. I simply did not feel that the "crime" deserved the "punishment" of being cast away, never to see my family again. I felt like I had worked hard for many years in the Sea Org and to end it in this way seemed a little unjust. I still wanted to leave, but maybe I was a little scared of being SP declared.
