About this page


A Scientology front organization that fights against alleged abuses in psychiatry and psychology. As Scientology critic Martin Poulter points out, ''It is absolutely remarkable that an organisation which stands accused of so many human rights violations itself should spawn a pressure group with this name.''

CCHR, the newspeak-named Citizen's Commission on Human Rights, run by a Scientologist by the name of Dennis Clarke. CCHR's main purpose is clearing away the ''Psyches'' (mental health professionals; seen by Scientology as evil aliens from the fifth galactic invader force) to make way for Scientology's advance into society. CCHR is a front group for Scientology.
