Former Scientologist Marc Headley's September 2008 speech in Germany marked a significant development in the campaign against the movement.

On September 4, 2008, Marc Headley adressed an invited audience in Hamburg, Germany about his experiences inside Scientology. Headley, in his mid-30s, explained that he had spent most of his life in Scientology: his mother had got involved in the early 1980s, when he was six years old.

From the ages of 12 to 16 he had been enrolled at a Scientology school before being signed up for what he called the "paramilitary branch of Scientology", the Sea Organization. He worked in increasingly senior positions at Scientology's International Base, in California, alongside the movement's current leader, David Miscavige.
