Church of Scientology of Kaohsiung Promotes Human Rights

New Scientology Church raises awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 25, 2014

The crash of cymbals, the thundering roll of drums…

So began the procession began at the Church of Scientology of Kaohsiung in December in honor of the 65th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Church organized this human rights walk and open house to raise awareness of the basic rights every individual has.

The day began with a conference in the Chapel of the new Church, featuring speeches by local dignitaries and a representative of Youth for Human Rights. The public affairs director of the Church gave a presentation on the Scientology-supported human rights initiatives and invited those attending to join Church staff and parishioners in the third annual Walk for Human Rights, sponsored by the Church and the Nan-Tai Chi-Wang God Tao Temple.

Participants walked from the Church of Scientology in the heart of Kaohsiung to the Formosa Mass Rapid Transit station, site of the notorious 1979 “Kaohsiung Incident,” where the arrest of political dissenters at a Human Rights Day demonstration ignited a chain of events that eventually brought an end to martial law and instituted democracy in the nation.

Dedicated to bringing about a culture in which the rights of all individuals are honored, volunteers from the Church of Scientology of Taiwan deliver hundreds of human rights education lectures in schools each year and carry out petition drives and street events to raise awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. For this and a host of other humanitarian and community activities, the Church has received the Ministry of Interior of Taiwan's annual Religious Excellence Award for 10 consecutive years.

The Church of Scientology of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, opened its doors December 7, 2013, as the first Ideal Scientology Organization of Asia. Its facilities are configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and to serve as a home for the entire community—a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift citizens of all denominations.
