I was at the London 'showdowns' yesterday with a few anarchists and
indymedia journalist types, mainly just to take photos.
One journalist said there were 400 anti-scientologists present, though
we thought the true number was more like 200-250. About 2/3rds of them
were wearing V for Vendetta masks.
One of my friends got to the 1st demo at Blackfriars early and was
approached by a large scientologist who asked him if he wanted to
settle things with a fist fight. Luckily a cop turned up with a video
camera and the guy backed off. (I never thought I'd say that about a
cop with a camera..)
I haven't photoshopped my own pictures yet, but there's a brief
account of the day by a member of the band 'Deathboy' here:
The cops were okay to most of the crowd but stopped and searched a few
people who they thought were from London Class War, on rather spurious
"We're from the private sector and we're here to help you."
