The anti-Scientology group known as Anonymous says its July 12 "Spy vs. Sci" plans to demonstrate in "cities all around the world." Anonymous members - who include former Scientologists - are focusing on alleged "abuses" of the church's intelligence agency, known as the Office of Special Affairs (OSA). The group charges that critics are "targeted, harassed, threatened and intimidated in an attempt to silence or punish them."
An Anonymous protest in London targeted Scientology's elite Sea Org - a pseudo-paramilitary group that used to own a ship. "We are not targeting the beliefs, but the Church. Why does it take people's money? Why does it split people from their families? It is a dangerous cult."
