WORLDWIDE PROTEST AGAINST THE EVIL CULT OF SCIENTOLOGY IS TAKING PLACE THIS SUNDAY.
The Internet users shall band together to provide awareness to the public about the atrocities of Scientology.
Scientology has killed various people throughout the years. They practice censorship and prosecute journalists for going against them. They have an army of lawyers to prevent any legal action against them.
This enemy must be fought.
For more information see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology

The wikipedia version is really long. It might be tedious and you might get lost, unless you're a good reader.
I suggest using this for only in depth information on the overall event.

This video gives a nice introduction on the crimes Scientology has committed. It's a bit bias, however the cases they bring up are real events. You can research each of the events to further convince yourself. It generally talks about the deaths Scientology was responsible for.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2008/feb/04/news

Those two show the magnitude of this event. The Economist is the most important news source for an economist. It's a well known publisher (to college students at least), same with the Guardian.

This video shows a "warmup" protest in Orlando Florida. Over 100 people participated (the video claims 147). So it shows that the event is serious and you most likely won't have to worry about going alone and face a humiliating failure.

Wow, another ridiculous, pointless protest....
You know, one thing I often think when watching the news, or listening to ridiculous people or sports is: "None of this will matter at the end of the world. These people are wasting thier lives."

Im not "Emo" you ridiculous idiot. Im glad they believe in something and would like to see change, but do they, like Jehova Witnesses on saturday mornings, need to try and press their beliefs on everyone else?
Holding a protest will just cause unwanted trouble...

Maybe it's better to say they could have done something better. I'm quite sure many people don't even understand what it is they're protesting about and just go on with the flow because it's something "new" and sometime down the road it will reach equilibrium in which nobody cares anymore.

Would really appreciate it if you guys had the courtesy to read/watch just one or two of those articles/videos before posting.

I mean, I could go on and rebut all of your arguments/comments. But it's all in those links. Please just view them.
If you don't like to read, then at least watch the youtube videos of the protesters.



There's a fairly decent amount of media coverage of this event.

^ I did that already as well before posting because I admit to myself I know not much about scientology. I'm one of those common people and if it happens to me, I can pretty much relate to the other people as well and so there is a high probability that they themselves don't know much about the idea of scientology.

Also, when you read one source of information, be sure to at least get the details, like:
"one hundred people gathered outside of a Church of Scientology center in Orlando, Florida to protest the organization's practices." (the youtube video is based on this).

And this was just a "warmup" event, preparing for 2/10/08.

I think members of scientology should step back and actually see the stuff they worship

Yes, I know nearly nothing about scientology as well. Im going to read that Wikipedia article now.
EDIT: Wow. I find that absolutly ridiculous. And they call ordering dozens of pizzas for someone they dont like "Technologically sophisticated"? I call it an immature prank expected of teenagers.
As I said, absolutly pointless.

So i didn't watch any of the videos or view the links but i did see protest on scientology.

Is this the same protest that Anonymous is trying to raise up for the 10th?
