Promoter refuses to work The Briggs tour over Scientology ties

German punk magazine Ox have withdrawn their support for The Briggs German and Austrian tour over their objections to Joey Briggs’ connection with Scientology. Unlike the United States where the group is recognized as a tax-exempt religion, the Germany government has refused to certify the organization and a 2007 Government report even accused the leaders of the group as ““seeking to reduce or deny basic constitutional and human rights, such as the right to human dignity, the right to self-fulfillment and the right to equal treatment.

The promoters posted a statement in German but have also provided us with an exclusive English statement about the cancellation. Excerpts here:
