Anonymous Defeats Scientology in Philadelphia
From YouTuber, Anon4Christ:
“Philadelphia has finally permitted anti Scientology group, “Anonymous”, to Protest against the Church of Scientology in the city.
For the past two months, protesters in Philadelphia were denied protest permits because Scientology had obtained them first and the two groups are not allowed to hold dual protests.
However, the Church’s critics have provided conclusive evidence that the Church had not actually held any protests on the days that they claimed.
As a consequence, the City of Philadelphia has denied a request by the Church of Scientology to hold a “protest” on June 14th, 2008. This is the same day that “Anonymous” had applied for a city permit to protest outside the Church.
The Managing Director’s office stated that Scientology is no longer allowed to file any form of protest permit, due to its abuse of the permit process in order to block legitimate protesting on city property.”
I’m not certain of this, but I think that I heard that in response to the cult’s sneaky means of preventing peaceful protest against them, Philadelphia picketers held their protests on alternative days near the main international days of protest (e.g., the very next day, Sunday). I’m not certain of this, however.
Good for you, Philadelphia picketers. And Scientology, what a disgrace…
