Philadelphia Activists Allowed To Protest Scientology

The city of Philadelphia has denied a request by the Church of Scientology to hold a “protest” on June 14th, 2008. This is the same day the anti-Scientology group “Anonymous” applied for a city permit to protest outside the Church.

For the past two months, protesters in Philadelphia were denied protest permits because Scientology had obtained the permits first. The Church’s critics provided evidence proving that the Church had not actually held any protests on those days.

The Managing Director’s office stated Scientology is no longer allowed to file any form of protest permit, due to its abuse of the permit process in order to block legitimate protesting on city property.
