Criminal Case Dropped

The state of Florida charged Scientology in the death of one of their parishioners, Lisa McPherson. When they dropped that lawsuit after years of harassment from Scientology, people took to the streets to protest.

Candlelight Vigil '97

VIDEOTAPED Decmeber 5, 1997
On the second anniversary of the death of Lisa McPherson, critics of Scientology flew in from around the world to picket in front of the Fort Harrison. On the evening of the 5th, there was a candlelight vigil in Lisa’s memory.
To counter the peaceful picketers, Scientology ordered it’s troops into the streets of Clearwater to do their own picket…against the Police Department and the St. Petersburg Times newspaper.

Police Make an Arrest

VIDEOTAPED December 2, 2000
Scientology got an injunction in place that kept LMT members ten feet away from them while Scientologists were ordered to stay 20 feet away from us. The whole thing was extremely silly as there was no real need for an injunction. It was just another tactic to try to prevent protest’s of Scientology abuses.
Scientology hired process servers to serve everyone who flew in from around the world to join in the memorial ceremony on the anniversary of Lisa’s death.
