Have you heard of Anonymous? Anonymous is a clandestine group that has positioned itself in direct and unyielding opposition to the Church of Scientology. The group recently launched an attack on the official Scientology website, temporarily shutting it down, and has been accused of prank calls, "black fax" transmissions, and allegedly sending "suspicious" white powder to various Scientology offices. Their YouTube page features three mysterious videos that present their official message to Scientology, their call to action, and their code of conduct for protests.

Anonymous has denounced the Church of Scientology as a dangerous cult guilty of fraud, human rights offenses, and murder. "We want you to know about Lisa McPherson," they've declared. "We want you to know about former members of Scientology's private navy, SeaOrg, who were forced to have abortions so that they could continue in service to the church. We want you to know about Scientology's use of child labor and their gulags."

Their next step: Organized protest events are planned for February 10th, 11:00am (local times) at all Church of Scientology locations worldwide.
