Worldwide Protests Against the Scientology Cult/Criminal Racket

Saturday, May 10, 2008
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Event Type:
Dr. Lilly von Marcab
Location Details:
"Church" of Scientology, 701 Montgomery Street (right across from the Transamerica Pyramid)


Despite what you may have heard, Scientology is not a religion. It is a vicious, multi-national criminal racket and cult that uses hypnosis and grueling interrogations to turn otherwise normal people into mindless but aggressive drones. Anyone who dares to look critically at Scientology should expect retaliation. According to the cult's "Fair Game" policy, a Scientologist can "Lie, Steal, Cheat, Destroy them utterly, with absolutely no consequences." This is in keeping with another core policy, to "always attack, never defend." The tragic thing is that "Fair Gaming" has been used to horrific effect on thousands of people in the past few decades -- journalists, relatives of cult members, ex-members, anyone who has ever made a move that Scientology perceived as threatening. The many stories of these Fair Game incidents, often continuing for years on end, are frightening and bizarre but unfortunately they are all too true.
Is this a religion? Does Scientology deserve its full "religion" tax exemption from the IRS (obtained through extortion), along with special financial perks not given to Atheists, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Mormons, Muslims or Wiccans? Does Scientology get a free pass from scrutiny because they are a "religion," and it would be a "hate crime" to ask too many questions? That's what they would say.
We don't think so. JOIN tens of thousands of people from around the world who are working right now to make Scientology accountable for its crimes. JOIN US for our third worldwide protest, on Saturday 10 May from 11 am - 5 pm, in front of San Francisco's "Church" of Scientology. It's right across the street from the TransAmerica Pyramid at 701 Montgomery Street. WE NEED FOR YOU TO BE THERE. For more information, please check out

No worries, this is not a Maoist/Marxist movement, but the artwork is effective (someone had been worried about this at the last protest).
