Protestors believe the Church of Scientology suppresses free speech by suing and threatening anyone who opposes them.

The protestors took their message to the 6th Street overpass near the Church of Scientology of Washington State on Aurora Ave. N. in Seattle.

The demonstrators are part of an anonymous group formed on the Internet. They believe the church suppresses free speech by suing and threatening anyone who opposes them.

"We believe in total freedom of belief. We have nothing against the people of Scientology, however the Church of Scientology has committed crimes. They're vehemently anti-opposition. Anyone who opposes them, must go down," said one protestor.

The protestors who wore masks say they want to conceal their identitie to avoid being targeted by the church.
