Anonymous wages pirate war against Church Of Scientology

The war between the controversial protest group Anonymous, and one of their biggest enemies, the Church Of Scientology, is still going strong, with the group unveiling their next plan of action — a pirate themed menace.

Operation: Sea Arrrgh is the latest initiative from the group that in January this year announced it would “dismantle Scientology in its present form”.

Since then the Anonymous has conducted numerous worldwide demonstrations to decry the practices of Church Of Scientology, many of which the group believe to be immoral and indecent.

Past protests have highlighted the death of former Scientologist Lisa McPherson, who died of a pulmonary embolism while under care of Scientologists.

Operation: Sea Arrrgh aims to bring to light the Church of Scientology’s Sea Organization, a collective of the most dedicated Scientologists in the world.

Anonymous believe these individuals are forced into contracts that pay below livable wages in most countries, that female members are pressured into having abortions if they fall pregnant, and that children part of families in the organization are often forced into hard physical labour.

However, the protests, while nautical in nature, won’t be held at sea, but at land-based Church Of Scientology sites worldwide on June 14.
