A special report compiled by Anonymous with the help of ex-scientologists that defines the relationship between the Church of Scientology and their Youth for Human Rights (YHR) group that the organization uses to promote the false claims of L. Ron Hubbard being a humanitarian despite the long history of abuses the organization is infamous for as well as the complete lack of empathy, charity, and compassion LRH teachings enforce.

Scientology Front Group: Youth for Human Rights
(A Special Report Compiled By Anonymous)
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOUTH FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ANDTHE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY
On its website,http://www.youthforhumanrights.org/, YHR International states: “Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is an independent non-profit corporationheadquartered in Los Angeles, with the purpose to educate people in the Universal Declarationof Human Rights so they become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace.” 
1. YHR International (YHRI) was founded by Scientologist and current YHRI President, Mary Shuttleworth, and the Church of ScientologyInternational.
Source: The Church of Scientology International brochure entitled “Making Human Rights aReality”, published under the banner “Scientology - Effective Solutions” (http://freedom.org.il/english/LA/issue07/page15.htm), at page 12. (Note that the YHRIwebsite does not mention the Church of Scientology International’s founding role, nor MsShuttleworth’s connection with the Church.http://www.youthforhumanrights.org/about/meetpres.html)
2. The YHRI Executive Director, Tim Bowles, is a Scientologist.
He has attained the status of OTVIII (currently the highest rank), is a Commissioner of theScientology organisation Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (the object of which is the removal of psychiatry and psychology from the mental health field), is a memberof the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE), was a Founding Patron of the Churchof Scientology International, was general legal counsel to the Church of Scientology for eightyears and has represented the Church of Scientology in legal matters (including as one of thelead attorneys in Church of Scientology International v. Fishman and Geertz , in which Mr.Fishman gave evidence that he had committed crimes on behalf of the Church of Scientologyand had been instructed to murder his psychologist, Dr. Uwe Geertz, and then commitsuicide).Sources:http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/t/tim-bowles.html; Behar,Richard. “The Thriving Cult of Greed and Power”, Time, 1991-05-06:http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,972865-1,00.html 
3. The YHRI promotes Scientologists.
The promotion of L Ron Hubbard as a human rights advocate at the 2007 Sydney event (seebelow) caused considerable dismay. A glance at the YHR website shows that it also promotesartists who are scientologists. For example, a music video project to combat human traffickinginvolved five artists. All five are scientologists.Sources:http://www.youthforhumanrights.org/campaigns/combat_human_trafficking.html http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/g/guy-la-brusciano.html http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/m/michael-duff.html http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/d/diego-verdaguer.html http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/a/amanda-miguel.html http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/m/mark-isham.html 
 
4. The Church of Scientology International treats YHRI’saccomplishments as its own.
Addressing a 2004 gathering of the International Association of Scientologists, Mike Rinder,then a director of the Church of Scientology International and Executive Director of the Churchof Scientology International’s Office of Special Affairs, make the following speech, viewable onYoutube, accompanied by a display of YHR footage. (Note: LRH = L Ron Hubbard; LRH Tech =the writings, training and policies of L Ron Hubbard; ie. the essence of Scientology). “When you bring LRH Tech to leaders of society the impact is commensurate with the numbersthey influence. That’s why last year we launched a program to deliver LRH answers right tothe opinion leaders and elected officials of Europe. We placed a series of booklets in theirhands covering our effective solutions; one each month. Each covered a different subject, thevery substance of all we are and do. From our ABLE social betterment programs to our churchand community activities. In all, 550 000 have been distributed throughout Europe since thecampaign began. “Of course, our effective solutions include our international human rights program, becausewhere fundamental rights do not exist, man cannot go free. We’ve continued our events,conferences and hand-to-hand distribution, reaching no less than 131 million worldwide thisyear, and our efforts have been relentless across four continents. Just since June, we took our “Youth for Human Rights” crusade right into the UN General Assembly chambers. UN officialsthen helped launch the 2004 youth summit in the international headquarters of the UNEducation Fund. “In Los Angeles, on the steps of city hall, we brought city council members, congressmen andthe chairman of the city’s Human Rights Commission together to witness the mayor proclaimInternational Youth for Human Rights Day. While, to further raise public awareness, we placedour human rights messages on radio and TV stations from Canada to Pakistan. And for thenext step, our Youth for Human Rights coalition presented their first ever human rights musicvideo, entitled “United”, soon to be seen world over in public schools and on television. “But, as a final measure of our leadership role, we now sit as official delegates on theOrganisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the OSCE, expressly established tocreate a human rights framework for the continent. And when we proposed the formation of anew watchdog, to investigate governments that violate the Universal Declaration of HumanRights, it was ratified and adopted as official policy of the OSCE. And that means now, for thefirst time, religious freedom rights are enforceable in all European nations, and that’s acontinental leap in making human rights a fact.” Sources:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhZ-kY50J50 http://www.scientology.org/news-media/biographies/rinder.html 
In contrast:
In early 2007 a YHR event at the Parliament of the state of New South Wales, Australia causedconsiderable dismay by its prominent promotion of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Churchof Scientology. At the time, the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper reported that the Church of Scientology was a “major sponsor” of YHR and quoted YHR spokesman, Nigel Mannock: “If there was a photograph of L. Ron Hubbard on the material it was because of what he saidabout human rights,” Mr. Mannock said. “We do get support from the Church of Scientology, among other people, and a number of people who happen to be Scientologists are in it. “It is not a Scientology organisation. We think L. Ron Hubbard was a good supporter of humanrights.”
