As I reported, in August
last year I carried out a one-man protest of the Scientology cult's
CCHR anti-mental health hate exhibition at the Vancouver, B.C.
During my peaceful protest I was assaulted by a couple of the
Scientologists manning their hate exhibit, most violently by a
man I'd known to be a CCHR official but whose name I didn't then
This guy struck me twice, tore a strip of skin off my arm,
and tried to rip from me a bunch of friendly Xenu flyers I'd brought
for the protest.
I recently found a 1991 Vancouver Sun article that identified
him as Brian Beaumont.
Beaumont has a cookie-cutter Scientology web site:
It is possible that Jeff Beaumont, who also has a Scientology
web site, is his son.
During a picket of the Vancouver Scientology organization with
Martin Hunt in 1999, a woman staff member ordered a young man,
who could have been in his teens at the time, to shoot me if I
stepped onto cult property.
Later during our picket, the same guy made other threatening
comments about getting his gun and taking care of me. Also later
I saw Brian Beaumont talking to this young guy in a way that led
me to conclude that they were probably father and son.
Brian Beaumont clearly makes an ideal official in the Scientology
cult's vicious and dangerous CCHR attack arm. If the young Scientologist
who threatened to murder me is indeed Beaumont's son, the Vancouver
org has one hell of a family of hoodlums of whom cult boss David
Miscavige must be very proud.
