Protest of the Church of Scientology at Manchester 12th September
Last Saturday the 12/09/09 was Scientology protest day in Manchester. The weather was warm and sunny as were the 14 protestors who attended this months protest. Over 500 leaflets were distributed outside the front door of the Scientology Headquarters based at 258-260 Deansgate, Manchester.
The protestor known as SUPERSTARNEILC on the WHYWEPROTEST website, held up signs to show his solidarity with SUZ1948, who is "disconnected" from her daughter MANDY. SUZ1948 also known as BRITISH MOM on the EX-SCIENTOLOGY website changed her mind about Scientology and how the organisation was run after many years of dedicated and loyal service to the group, but on doing so was banished from having any further contact with her daughter MANDY who remains in the grasp of the "cult".
The reasons why the protestors show up month after month, vary and are as many, as the number of wives and children of the late and "colourful" L.Ron Hubbard. "Because its a money making cult" says one protester, "Because they remove families from each other" says an attractive young woman, "Because of this" as the protestor points at the XENU leaflet; "Because the women at reception swore at me" says the man in the green t-shirt, "I don't like people spreading misinformation about mental health issues. I don't like people abusing other people." says the good mannered young man.
The next protest is scheduled for Saturday 10th October at 11 a.m.
