The Scientology Protester


This is an interesting shot from 2009. I was in Tottenham Court Road and came across a group of protesters demonstrating outside the Scientology shop. The majority of them were disguised or masked, many of them in these ‘V for Vendetta’ masks, since it is rumoured that the L Ron Hubbard people tend to have sophisticated ways of tracking down their critics and making trouble for them. How true that is I can’t say with any certainty, but I certainly admire those who stand up to them. We have enough wacky religions in the world and we sure don’t need any more.
I never asked for this person to pose for me. I just turned around and he was there.

I salute you, unknown protester!
