Press Release - A New Branch of APIS
I have pleasure in announcing a new branch of the Association of Professional Independent Scientologists (APIS) now open in Northern Italy. The branch, which has its own website in Italian http://apis-italia.net> is there to service and provide source materials to Italy and the surrounding regions.
This branch is a service organisation consisting of many people, the majority of which are OTs, C/S and highly trained auditors. All backed up and supported by our Tech and Admin terminals at APIS.
There is a feedback and contact details on site for anyone in Italy or surrounding areas (such as Switzerland for example) who wish to participate either by assisting or taking advantage of the on source services available in the area.
They are also listed on the APIS website at: independent-scientologists-association.net/branch-directory.shtml.
I would like to congratulate and thank the Italian branch for all the hard work and effort they have put into getting this branch up and running.
Here's to many more branches opening up!

Press Release - New Name Change
The International Freezone Association Inc is undergoing a name change. In order to reflect our true position in relation to the works of L. Ron Hubbard we are changing our name to:
The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists (APIS)
This is more consistent with our aims, purposes and goals.
The IFA (International Freezone Association), as it was originally known, was formulated in 2003 when the Scientology freezone was very much in its infancy and consisting of many scattered groups around the planet. Most of these groups consisted of people who had either left or been kicked out of the church. The term itself was actually first employed by Bill Robertson of Rons Orgs fame some years before.
When the IFA was first created, it was with a viewpoint of being an international organisation and as the word 'Freezone' was de rigueur at that time, this term was adopted and the International Freezone Association was born. The full story can be found at IFA History.
Since then the freezone has come to include a hotch potch of fringe groups and individuals not all of which are adherents of the original philosophy and practice but, instead, many tend to mix practices or alter the philosophy and technology to suit their own goals and purposes.
"This meant that we had to consider pointing out the distinction between the IFA, now APIS, who adhere strictly to the philosophy and practice, called standard technology or 'tech', and those who do not." Said Michael Moore President of APIS.
So being a strictly standard tech organisation from day one and having no interest in being lumped together with those who engage in non standard practices, a new name was sort to reflect our purposes and goals more accurately. After some consultations and surveys the name The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists Was arrived at in order to more truthfully express our stance in the scientology world as it has existed since the association was first conceived.
Michael Moore added, "I would just like to take this opportunity of indicating that our purposes as outlined on the website have never changed and have always remained the same."
The principle purposes of APIS are: Preserve the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard for future use so it is available for all mankind.
Protect the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard so it is not altered, diluted or changed in anyway but remains exactly as Lafayette Ron Hubbard issued it.
Promote the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard so it may be known by all mankind.
Over the coming weeks the website will be updated to reflect the new name change.
The Original Workable Philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard
What IS the Original Workable Philosophy of Ron you might ask?
The Workable Philosophy of Ron is a researched and developed method of improving and expanding the awareness of the individual and through the use of specific exercises enhances the individual's ability to improve his own life and
There are two aspects to the technology Ron developed. Training and Auditing (Auditing means: to listen). Training encompasses the information which Ron discovered about life which people were not previously aware and which, when applied, improves a person's ability and understanding of life.
Auditing is that specific action designed to improve a person's ability in a particular area of his or her life
or relieve the individual of the effects of past activities.
So the Original Technology which Ron developed after thousands and thousands of hours of research and
development is the technology which provides a predictable result for a specific action followed.
Where can you get the Original Workable Philosophy of Ron?
After some extensive research, checking andverification the International Freezone Association has established
that the original technology can be obtained from the Clearbird series featured here: International Freezone
FANZA encourages you to check out this information and hopes you find it of assistance in your travel up the bridge to spiritual freedom.

The Most Valuable People in the World
Lafayette Ron Hubbard said that Auditors were the most valuable people
in the world. Of course he was right. But the most valuable of all
the auditors in the planet must be those battling it out in the field.
Alone with sparse technical and administrative support, relying
valiantly on their own mettle and the Cof S looming in the shadows
waiting to pounce for any infringement of their perceived monopoly with
the weapon of copyright.
What does an Auditor need out there carrying the Flag for Rons Tech? An
Auditor needs support. An Auditor needs and deserves the sort of
support the most valuable beings in the world should have! C/S support.
Admin support. Someone there to provide succor. Someone guarding their
door to freedom while they are busy helping someone else with theirs.
Someone to help them stay on the straight and narrow path of LRH
standard technology with all the right references and guidance whilst
surrounded by the aberrations of the planet.
And what about the PC? Where would an auditor be without a PC in front of
him? And how can a PC find an auditor not 1000 miles away but within
reach and who actually uses LRH Technology and not some strange
alter-is of the tech designed to produce startling effects and no
lasting substance? When a PC has just been thrust out of the C of S
door and had it slammed shut behind him and he is left apparently
looking at a spiritual desert. Where does he go? What does he do? How
can he continue up the bridge?
The International Freezone Association is a non profit association specifically set up and designed to provide for it's members:
A Technical Support Centre for Auditors and PCs in the field including:
Upgrading through Tape, Video and many other services.
A comprehensive LRH reference section as part of preserving and promoting
the technology complete with a search facility especially designed for
Auditors and PCs.
An aggressive marketing support structure set up
including surveys, Advertising, Press Release and News Stories,
Listings on Search engines, Banner advertising and more specifically to
provide new pcs for auditors.
A Communication Line for pcs to locate auditors they can feel safe with
and who they know will apply LRH original technology to their case.
A legal support system for individuals, auditors and groups members subject to unwarranted attacks and hassles.
The knowledge that, despite what any other groups or church does, the technology is still being preserved and available.
Do you see the benefits of these?
The IFA has been constructed with the foresight in mind to predict
possible issues that face the Freezone in the future and that can also
face their members. This is why there is such an extensive
Dispute Resolution Process. Where else can you find the predictability
offered by the use of these services? Many hundreds of hours went into
the construction of the association with lots of discussion of, "What
ifs?" and "How do we handle this issue if it arises?" It may have been
originated by one person but many experienced Scientologists
participated and contributed. Experienced Class VIs and Class VIIIs.
People with many years of LRH administrative experience. All made
serious contributions to the IFA format, working it over, picking
holes, finding and indicating flaws and tweaking it until it fit the
criteria as outlined in the purposes of preserving, protecting and
promoting the original technology of Ron.
It is no coincidence that the web site is 'green on white', and has a
picture of Ron on the front! The IFA is dedicated to Rons Original
Technology. To its preservation, it's protection and its promotion.
Each member, although a member of the association, is still an individual.
There is no intrusion into a member's life or any dictatorial approach
as to how one should live or be. The only criterion is "Has the member
agreed to the Constitution and Terms of Service?" If so that person
can become a member. There is no, "we don't like you because of this or
that", no holding one's past against one. No wog or Cof S attitudes of cut comm lines, exclusions or
stops on the lines. Our interest is in the future, and in pursuing our purposes as
packaged in our motto, "Preserve, Protect & Promote".
Our aim is to keep the technology sound and being applied and to be able to support and offer succor to those who apply it.
I feel sure that most of you would agree this is a fine goal to have.
