Anonymous Continues Activism Against Scientology with ‘Operation: FairGameSTOP’
The group of Internet based activists, collectively known as Anonymous have continued their global awareness campaign against the Church of Scientology with their fourth rally in as many months. The worldwide rally for this month will be held on May 10th and is dubbed ‘Operation: FairGameSTOP’, which is designed to draw attention to the highly litigious nature of Scientology and their constant harassment of their detractors.
Under increasing pressure from national and international media, foreign governments and the tide of public opinion, Scientology has gone on the attack, by launching spurious litigation against former Scientologists and individual members of Anonymous in the United States. Multiple governments globally have become aware of the perverse tactics of Scientology, and are beginning to take positive steps in reducing the damage perpetrated by this cult.
The fight against Scientology has taken a tragic turn in the past month with the sad passing of Kaja Bordevich Ballo at the young age of 20. Kaja, the daughter of Norwegian MP Olav Gunnar Bello, was studying at a University in Nice when she decided to undertake a ‘Free Personality Test’ run by Scientology. On receiving the results of the test, which is specifically rigged to give a poor result, Kaja returned to her dorm and threw herself from the window. "I believe Kaja would have been alive today if she had not gone to the Scientologists," says friend and fellow student Henrik Møinichen, age 19.
The first rally, affectionately dubbed as ‘Raids’, held on February 10th, attracted hundreds of people from all walks of life showing up in cities everywhere with 8,000 protesters speaking out globally. The second Raid on March the 15th showed their numbers were growing, with over 9,000 participants globally. These numbers likewise continued to swell with the protest on April 12th and the world is finally beginning to take notice. The current wave of activism is expected to gain even more members as more become aware of the Church of Scientology's policies through the dedicated efforts of the protesters to inform the public.
What is Operation:FairGameSTOP?
The purpose of Operation:FairgameSTOP otherwise known as ‘Battletoads Earth’, is to draw attention to the harassment that Scientology launches against critics. These attacks are many, including frivolous lawsuits, smear campaigns propagated by the church to silence critics and several suspect deaths. In one case, 9 members of the Church of Scientology, including Hubbard's wife, were charged and imprisoned over the events concerning "Operation Freakout", an attempt by Scientology to silence investigative journalist and Scientologist critic, Paulette Cooper. The Church's members were indicted and imprisoned on charges of theft, burglary, conspiracy and other crimes.
