There's no question the city's movers and shakers want to bring more people to their struggling downtown core.

But masked protesters carrying signs and clogging sidewalks, possibly disrupting commerce and keeping some visitors away?

That's what's on tap today when the group Anonymous steps out from the shadows of the Internet to hold a second round of protests against the Church of Scientology.

"I don't think it helps, but obviously people have the right to protest as long as it's peaceful and they're not infringing on someone else's rights," Mayor Frank Hibbard said. "We won't allow that to happen, either."
