MIAMI, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The following release was issued today by the Raelian Religion:

The Noga-Hilton of Geneva has finally refused to host the Raelian International Convention that is to be held October 5-8, 2000 even though reservations were made and paid for 3 months ahead of time.

As a result of this conspicuous religious discrimination, on this coming October 7, the Raelian Movement will organize a massive demonstration in front of all the Hilton Hotels worldwide and plans on a global boycott of this hotel. Other religious minorities are invited to join in this demonstration as well as in the boycott.

This new anti-cult racism, particularly more prevalent in France, is unfortunately gaining momentum in Belgium and Switzerland despite a call for common sense from the International Community and the American Government. The worse is yet to come as Raelians are beginning to receive death threats. Many of them have already exhiled to North America where religious freedom is not only constitutional but also social.

A press conference denouncing all these discriminations and proposing immediate actions to reverse the process of "Nazification" of Europe will be held in Geneva following the International Raelian Convention. Rael, leader of the Raelian Movement, will be present and will expound on all the international measures taken to fight this scourge.

It will be held at the Geneva Warwick Hotel, 14, (Lausanne) on October 7 at 4PM.
