I brought a sign to the May 10th protest that said: “Scientology is not a religion, it is a dangerous cult”.
Within 5 minutes of arriving at QVS, I was told by a member of the police that I was not allowed to use ‘that word’, and that the final decision would be made by the Inspector.
At around 11:15, while on the high ground of QVS, I was approached by these happy fellows(:40)
I was read the Section 5 Public Order Act of 1986, and was told I was strongly advised to remove the sign. You can see my response in the video, as I read out Justice Latey’s statement about the Cult of Scientology. I was given until 11:30 to remove the sign.
At around 12:05 the police caught up with me, I was given a Court Summons and my details were taken down. Videos will surface. My sign was removed:
Since when was it illegal to say something is a ‘Cult’? I think this is ridiculous on the part of the London City Police. This stinks of Scientology interference, shame on them!
