“We were standing outside demonstrating legally. It was all fine until one of the members came out from their offices. He was mad and pushed two people. He also told us to go change our diapers (?) and tried to rip the sign I was holding. He had a camera and took pictures of us. Then he tried to push us again”, says one of the girls that were holding the sign that says “Honk against Scientology” to the passing cars.
At 17.40 the police arrived for a routine check of the demonstration.
“When the police arrived he(scilon) came out, furious about the honking cars. He claimed it was distracting him from getting any work done. He pushed people and the police asked him to calm down. They gave him the choice of leaving peacefully or get a ride downtown..
Then he pushed the cops and he was put in the partyvan”, says Jessica X.
“We never experienced anyone being as dramatic as this before. We never got physically attacked before. He went way too far pushing the others. We kept it clean and by the law. It shows who’s the adult in this situation” the girls claim. They also point out the fact that the demo was all legally approved by the police and the landowner.
“Two more scientologists came out of the “church” to look at the situation. They walked past as if nothing when they saw the police”, the girls said.
The police says the man refused to leave the premises, and will be fined for the incident.
