Anonymous group successfully orchestrates global
Kevin Spiess - Monday, February 11th, 2008 | 7:58PM
Anonymous is everywhere.
Across 14 countries and 50 cities protesters gathered
yesterday in a concentrated effort to challenge the
public perception of the international Church of
Scientology. Who where these protesters? There were
men and women and older folks and younger folks --
many of them wore masks (of V for Vendetta fame) --
but they all had one name really, and that name was
Anonymous is an idealogical, borderless group that
coalesced from the depths of the Internets recently.
Committed by a drive to expose the dark side of the
Church of Scientology, Anonymous is open to anyone
who would like to join, who believes in the battle.

The protests have been the most publicly noticeable
front in this information war between the Church, and
this group of like-minded individuals, operating in
concert. The lesser-known war has been fought -- and
continues to propagate -- over networks under the
control of the Church.
London, New York, Toronto. Honolulu, Los Angeles,
Brussels; Anonymous protesters marched outside of
Church offices, showing a stand -- a solidarity of
sanity -- against, what they see, in their eyes, as a
law-breaking organization, bent on the recruitment
and brain-bending whims of a science fiction writer
who is dead, that uses its resources against the
mentalities of those who are vulnerable.
February 10th was chosen as the day of public protest
in honor of a woman named Lisa McPherson, who
(reportedly) died in a Scientology procedure referred
to internally as a "Introspection Rundown."
The success of the event bodes well for the future of
the Internets and her people, as it shows that no
membership cards are needed for activity, only a
chaotically aligned unity of belief and purpose, and
a willingness to act.
