Protesting the Industry of Death Exhibit
A traveling exhibit version of a Scientology museum in Los Angeles entitled: Psychiatry: An Industry of Death" was picketed today by protestors, mostly anonymous, with several wearing Guy Fawkes masks like one worn by the hero in V is for Vendetta, who claim that the exhibit is Scientology propoganda.
The exhibit, mounted by CCHR (The Citizens Commission of Human Rights International) in Main Street Market was covered uncritically by the Middletown Press, and it's something of a surprise in a town with a strong mental health industry, that no one has stood up to challenge the public exhibit prior to this protest.
The group protesting outside of Main Street Market Saturday claim that they hide their identify in fear of a vendetta they feel the Church of Scientology uses against former members who speak out against the church.
