    Thousands of protesters that built from forums all over the world gathered outside of Scientology Churches all across the world on February 10, to protest the anniversary of the death of Lisa McPherson. The protesters are called the "Anonymous" or Anon for short. I find this somewhat ridiculous, but more than 1,000 people protested in LA that day.
    It is highly likely that there were more then 9000 people participating in the protest. And remember that not all Anons could show up.

    Overall Total: 108 raids, 17 countries, 7597-8129 people

    Now, that measures peak participation in most cases, not total. Add about 20% for people coming in and out(which seems reasonable), or being late, or whatever, and we'll have our desired turnout even at the low end.

    Did anyone else here about this, or take place in it? A few of my friends went in V for Vendetta masks, as that seemed to be the proper attire that day as you can see in the link below.
    What are your thoughts to the matter at hand? There is another worldwide rally coming up in March, so this will definitely not be the last of these protests.

    A flamboyant violation of Rules 1 and 2 but all the same Scientology is something I just can't stand.

    This is a violation of rules? How so, I'm not even voicing my opinion towards Scientology.
