The internet based phenomenon called Anonymous protested outside the Minneapolis Church of Scientology for the 25th consecutive month since February 2008. Their complaints against Scientology are numerous: behaving like a for profit business instead of a religion, members working long hours for little or no pay, members coerced to have abortions, families divided, staff members physically beaten and virtually imprisoned. Scientology has a history of attacking or taking legal action against critics, so protesters typically wear masks for anonymity.
