Anonymous vs Scientology

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the February 11th, 2008

Anonymous is a nebulous and faceless group that normally lives comfortably on the Internet but has chosen to step into meatspace on this particular day to face off with the Church of Scientology, an organization which it considers to be illegal and immorally coercive. Scientology labels Anonymous a ‘cyber terrorist’ group. Protests against Scientology were organized simultaneously in cities all around the world. Irina pays a visit to the Church’s San Francisco headquarters to get a sense of what all the fuss is about.
