The global day of action was initially announced last month after a video attributed to "Anonymous" coincided with an online effort that managed to temporarily knock out Internet servers belonging to the Church of Scientology.
Another speech by "Anonymous" appeared this weekend in the form of a video press release. Masked protesters responded in great numbers -- this time in real life -- with picket signs in Los Angeles and cities worldwide.
February 10th was chosen specifically because it marks the birthday of Lisa McPherson, who died of a pulmonary embolism in 1995 under the care of a branch of the Church of Scientology.
