Katie Holmes to face anti-Scientology protestors

‘Anti-Scientologist to target Katie’

Katie Holmes’ hopes of launching a credible acting career have suffered a further blow with anti-scientology protesters planning to wreck her Broadway debut.

Mrs Cruise’s attempt to step out from her husband’s shadow will now reportedly be dogged by a protest group called Anonymous, who say they will target her play ‘All My Sons’ when it opens on October 16.

According to a spokesman for the masked group, the organisation don’t want to shut down her performance entirely but rather make a bid to ‘save’ Holmes from the religious group, famously followed by husband Tom.

The protesters usually launch their protests on the internet but in person they wear signature masks to identify their presence.

Anonymous vs Scientology 8/16/08 NYC

The former ‘Dawson’s Creek’ actress – who became a follower of the bizarre sci-fi cult, after marrying Tom Cruise in November 2006 – will face a silent protest from demonstrators from Anonymous in Guy Fawkes masks when ‘All My Sons’ opens on October 16 in New York’s Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

Guy Fawkes was a British Catholic revolutionary who attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. His actions are remembered every November 5 in the UK, known as ‘Bonfire Night’.

The group, who describe themselves as a “leaderless worldwide group of concerned citizens”, recently staged a protest at the Scientology Center in New York.

They claim the “dangerous cult” of Scientology has “a well-earned reputation for harassing critics and openly critical ex-scientologists at their homes and workplaces”.
