National News // Nov. 13, 2019

Police were called to a Scientology stand in Sankt Gallen over the weekend as one of the church members likened protestors to Nazis.

A married couple, Yolanda and Beat Künzi, have been protesting against Scientology in the canton regularly – holding signs claiming Scientology is a sect and breaks up families.

An infuriated Scientologist retaliated with his own sign saying ‘Don’t buy from the Jews’. The slogan mimics a Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses from the 1930s.

The sign was too much for a passer-by who called the police. By the time they arrived the signholder had disappeared.

Investigations are ongoing.
