Remember, Remember the 5th of November: Anonymous Continues Protests of Scientology

Posted by mattusmaximus on November 3, 2009

I just wanted to pass along a little info to you all concerning some upcoming protests this Thursday, November 5th, of the Church of Scientology by the group called Anonymous. An image that has become synonymous with the Anonymous protests is the mask of Guy Fawkes, who is recognized for his involvement in the infamous Gunpowder Plot on the 5th of November every year in the United Kingdom.

Guy Fawkes

Many Anonymous protesters wear the Guy Fawkes mask when peacefully picketing CoS centers & passing out information to passersby about the cultish practices of the Church.  Contrary to CoS propaganda, these are peaceful protests which are designed to get out the truth about the Church and its practices; in no way, shape, or form do I, nor does Anonymous, encourage or condone any kind of violent or illegal action against the Church of Scientology!

So what’s with the Anonymous wearing the Guy Fawkes masks?  The answer is twofold: they do this not only to make a statement but also to protect themselves from the Scientologists who would attempt to ID them & label them as “suppressive persons” (SPs) and therefore target them for harassment. Believe me, even though I’ve never participated in an Anonymous event nor have I ever had a run-in with the CoS, from what I understand you do not want to be on that SP hit list.  So if you’re going to participate in one of these events, protect yourself (and others) and conceal your identity.

Anonymous tends to get its message out via the Internet, specifically through using online video.  For example, below are two Youtube videos: one of the first videos ever released by Anonymous back in January 2008…

… and a very recent video about the upcoming worldwide protests of the Church of Scientology on November 5th…

If you want more information regarding these protests, then check out the WhyWeProtest.net website.  For more information on Scientology in general, it’s hard to find a better site than Xenu.net, also known as Operation Clambake.  Spread the word.
