Chanology in the Montreal Mirror

The Montreal Mirror printed a small article about the war between Scientology and Anonymous.
The mysterious group of Scientology foes known only as Anonymous are planning a demonstration outside the church’s Montreal branch on Papineau this Sunday, Feb. 10. The demonstration is one of an estimated 170 planned outside Scientology centres worldwide.

News of the demonstrations was released on a YouTube video titled “Call to Action,” posted on Jan. 28. The protests are part of what’s being called Project Chanology—a reference to the group’s origins in 4chan.org, an image-based bulletin board—and seem to have their genesis in the church’s attempts to remove the strange Tom Cruise promotional video that found its way online last month. And while Anonymous has its roots in hacking [Yeah, right! e_e], Project Chanology members derive from all walks of life, with only one thing in common: they hate the Church of Scientology.

“We aren’t afraid of Scientology,” one Anonymous caller told the Mirror on Monday. “Fear is their main weapon. Fear and litigation.”

Similar rallies were held on Saturday, Feb. 2, in Orlando, Florida and Manchester, England. The Montreal rally begins at Park Lafontaine at 11 a.m. and will picket outside the church (4489 Papineau) at noon. For more info, see www.partyvan.info/index.php/Project_Chanology.

A Montreal representative from the church declined to comment on the matter.

Well I'll be in Manchester on Sunday. Proabably just to watch the show though.

Have looked into these Scientology Church's beliefs and aspirations since your recent post coverage, and also the Tom Cruise U-tube clip. I am satisfied that they are a bunch of religious Neo-fascists that are dangerous and deranged. I am glad there is a counter organization sabotaging them.
