there was a Protest against Scientology on Saturday, May 29th, 2010 at the usual spot in front of the Berlin Org. About fifty people attended. The special thing about it: It was not organized by Anonymous, but by a coalition of some youth organizations of the political parties, who are active in the Berlin district of Charlottenburg-Willmersdorf, were the Org is situated. They overcame their other political differences and agreed altogether that Scientology is a criminal and anti-democratic entity that have to be stopped. Anonymous approve this message and attended the protest.
[srs speech, srs]There were members of the youth-organizations of the Christ-Democrats, the Free-Democrats/Liberals, the Social-Democrats, the Green Party and the Pirate Party who protested together. At first it was not the lulzy kind of protest we know from our Anon-protests, just more srs biz. But that was okay. Representatives of the parties delivered their speeches, all of them pointed out from their political stand-point why Scientology is a dangerous Organization. Anonymous approved also those messages and – as our contribution – read parts of the Speech of Senator Xenophon (because that fits to the audience: young political people).
That was alright. Most of the people their knew enough about the cult to form an evidence-based viewpoint. And nearly everybody their knew Anon and welcomed us. It was really nice. We hope that their will be some outcome from this protest, especially in the political sphere in Berlin.
Scientology produced some footbullets. At first they tried the usual counter-protest-thing that they always perform, when we protest them. They put out way to many signs with sooooo much text on it that no one could read them. Just about eight Scifags stood together with the signs in front of the Org. It was the normal pathetic picture.
But then Sabine Weber itself (the “President” of the Berlin Org) came over to handle the enturbulation. And failed hard. At first she refused every present form Anon and tried not to talk with us, but only with the people from the parties. That doesn’t worked out that well, because they also know enough about Scientology to convict Sabine of lying more that one time. Sabine tried all the “we are a religion”, “we do nothing wrong”, “we engage in human rights” stuff. But nothing worked. She just jumped from topic to topic and were convicted of lies all the time. So, after the 45 minutes or so that she was talking, everybody there had seen the creepy Scientology Communication-Tech in action. An opportunity to learn for those who hadn’t seen it before.
Before Sabine could leave the place she was forced to take a copy of the “Grundgesetz” (the German constitution) in exchange for all the “material” she tried to force to the people in charge of the protest.
On another side of the protest: one Scifag opened a Window of one office (Is she really allowed to do this or is this another sign of the downfall of Scientology, that some of them just open windows when there is a protest outside?) and after some moments she started to give us Anons who spoke to here by our megaphone the finger and yelled at us “fuck you” or something like that. We just gave the niceness back, then an police-officer get over to the Org and told the Scifags, that there are not allowed to offend somebody.
At the end of the Protest, Anon played a game with the present parties. It was a test of their knowledge about Scientology and Anonymous. Teams of the parties participated, in the end the team of the Green Youth won. We declared them officially the most anon-like group in Berlin for this day – besides Anon itself.
Okay. After this we took some pix for the press and the protest was over for ththeis day. We consider this as a huge Win and encourage the people from the parties to continue their work over the boundaries of their single parties against Scientology.
