UstreamTV: 'CULT IN YOUR BACKYARD' Ex-Scientologists Speak Out OCT.20.12

the cult in your backyard [OCT.18.12] PROTESTERS from across the country will descend upon East Grinstead to demonstrate against Scientology. The demonstration, which has been described on one internet forum as a "mega raid", has been planned by the group Ex-Scientologists UK and coincides with the International Association of Scientologists' anniversary weekend at its UK base at Saint Hill Manor.

Up to 8,000 Scientologists are expected to attend the annual Saint Hill gala, which will highlight the organisation's humanitarian work over the last year – but, as guests arrive, protesters hope to spread their anti-Scientology message.

Former Scientologist Martin Padfield was based at the Saint Hill headquarters from 1989 to 1993 and plans to attend the protest to add his voice to opposition anger. "When I started researching the situation within the church with the blinkers off, and after reading other people's stories, I decided to leave once and for all. "I am not one for standing around on the sidelines," he said. [] [protest post-game thread@WWP]
