Detroit "Anonymous" Group Braves Cold To Protest Church Of Scientology
I have to hand it to these folks, the weather in Cleveland where I am is brutal, so further north in Detroit it took some serious dedication to stand in the cold protesting against the leaders of the Church in Scientology.
An Anon sent these pics of their small, but nonetheless, tough group at today's protests.
Here's what someone who was at the event had to say about the protest in Detroit:
I drove to the Farmington Hill's Org about an hour early to check the place out and parked down the corner. There were already to police cars there waiting. I said hi to the cop and he was none to happy to see me. Wanted to know why I was there and who I was and then what the fuss was all about. He made a big point of saying as cold as it was no one would show. And man it was very very cold.
I explained that if he insisted I would be happy to give him my name and address but first please tell me why he needed it. At that point he rolled his window back up and went back to his morning coffee and paper.
Right before 11 am the cars started coming. And let me tell you there were a lot of them with a lot of people. At last count I had counted over 60 people, mostly teens and young adults. The signs were great and they did everything they could to stay within the law. The only problem we almost had was the police told me and others not to take any pictures of them. And they made everyone remove their masks.
The org sent out one poor cold guy to take pictures. There are no faces in any of the ones I took. Most these guys are kids and I didn't see the need to provide scientology with any help in that area.
It was a happy go lucky bunch of protesters, some had signs, some had camera's and some even brought drinks and stuff for everyone. All were very lawful and respectful to the police and did themselves proud.
It was a great morning and I am about to head back out. But wanted to post what has happened so far.
Thanks for the update Anon, stay warm.
