A loose collection of individuals, originally mobilised by geeky web forums and bulletin boards, have been gaining momentum in attacking the Church of Scientology (CoS) for its attacks on freedom of speech and oppressive, authoritarian behaviour towards its own members.
Today they successfully picketed a scientology stall in Glasgow, forcing them to pack up and leave. There is also to be an Edinburgh component of a worldwide demonstration on 12th April.
There are more details on their website, but in case that goes down its to be outside the scientology offices in Hunter Square, South Bridge St, Edinburgh. They don’t specify a time, so I presume it will be all day. They encourage everyone to disguise their identity – perhaps by wearing masks – as the CoS have a lot of history of personally attacking anyone they see as a threat.
