    The only really amazing thing about these vid.s is Maria Silva didn't swear once - that alone convinces me she was drilled a lot beforehand.:D

    You can see her hubbie Ian put his arm around her shoulder after she crosses back over the road.

    Sydney scilons have totally lost the plot - if in fact they ever had one.:yes:

    Is there a bad breath charge? :giggle: Hi Cyrus! :wave:

    Seriously, though, I'll let him continue making an ass of himself in front of their public. That has much more value than anything that might come of whinging to some bureaucrat.

    I will send the video to the Glebe police, though, as they questioned me about the incident after talking to Cyrus, so I don't know what Cyrus said to them. He kept saying stuff to me about taking pictures of kids and get Anon to delete their pictures and it wasn't OK to put pics of their kids on the internet. I had missed the crazy lady's accusations to fatman (he was up the street from where I was) so didn't have a clue what he was talking about. I also didn't know that pedophilia accusations were a theme at demonstrations around the world for the last couple of weeks, so just appeared to be bizarre nonsense at the time. But after seeing all the videos, it is looking like a set-up, similar to the Sparrow case.

    I was trying to hear what was said, too! :lol:

    I asked Mike where was Vicky Dunstan...had she escorted Carol Miles to LA? Vicky has not been seen for months by us. He said she was still here. I think he was referring to Vicky, not Carol.

    Someone else said they spotted Vicky that night. She is probably staying clear of demonstrations because of the embarrassment of being publicly outed for child neglect by her daughter. That is, of course, the first thing that would be said if she showed her face.

    Carol Miles is still a missing person.

    It really was a very intense night. Co$ stepped way over the line too many times. Glad it is all on film! (And thanks for your support Racecar, Fatman, Jan - I was a bit overwhelmed.)

    I agree it was a very intense night and I think we were all supporting each other.

    I was disturbed with the amount of children that were there, even when I was in I never saw that many children at an Event.

    I just hope that after Saturday night the parents have learnt not to bring there children to the next one.

    I was standing right there when Maria was doing her bit and in my opinion she was on a mission from the time she set foot out of her car and nobody was going to stop her. All the one's that had a go at us were really fired up and didn't make much sense. I also noticed that they were being encouraged to have a go at us.

    The Difference between when the Police were there and when they weren't was amazing. I'm pleased the guys got all that on film.

    Next Event here we come :D

    Yeah - I noticed that too. Sick. Watch here at 2:23 as the Vice President of the Sydney Church of Scientology, Cyrus Brooks, gives Maria a high-five after she made the paedophile accusations.

    And the bit where she says about knowing what harassment was when she started to 'hunt him down". How sick.

    Using children as human sheilds is very weird. To exes, nothing is surprising of course, but what parents would agree to let their kids be used as defense barriers in a protest. Remebering of course that scientologists always play the danger card, like they are scared of what might happen. But then they stick kids on the front line????

    Apart from the "constructed" danger, by which I mean the hyped up BS about anon being dangerous, there is always the possibility of something going wrong and real danger to be present. It could even come from passersby who decide to join in without having the background info on where to draw the line on provocation etc, and then there could be random drunks etc.

    The people that are in charge of child safety might want to ask questions about why those kids were lined up in a protest.

    I guess they've moved on from bus tech to human shield tech.

    and raising a fist to women tech. That's an oldie but a goodie.
  11. When you are dealing with people who worship a man that would throw children into a chain locker on a ship because he's having a bad day, it's not surprising to see Scientologists using children this way, treating children as thetans in small meat bodies is 'standard tech', if they are downstat they will suffer the consequences, just like anyone else who stands between Hubbard's cult and a dollar.

    All of my kids were downstat. They didn't change their nappies, even. I was like, wotthehell do you see ME wearing one??? Well, do you??!!

    1. Would the camera person directly accused of being a paedophile please PM me, please?
    2. I missed the December turn out by one lousy day :angry:
    3. I have to visit Sydney late June or July (not sure yet). So this time I'll have to make sure that I'm there with my own video camera.

    My guess is Cyrus and Co. called a meeting before this event of the remaining sheeple in Sydney and put it to them that they needed to "step up and take responsibility" for the state of "harrassment by Anons" at events.

    And they drilled the "handlings," to much merriment and cheers of encouragement by those present. It's all too slick and practiced for a "spur-of-the-moment" thing. Like I said, Maria didn't swear once and I can see her being drilled NOT to swear so that, when viewed in court (in the fantasies of OSA ANZO) the judge doesn't throw it out because of her pottymouth.

    It's a different brand of Fail from the one we're accustomed to these days, but it's still a FAIL.

    Cult is too arrogant to really look at what works and what doesn't so we'll keep seeing more and more desperate tactics like this at future events and protests.

    Well done to those brave souls there who kept their cool in the face of such stupidity. You folk are true legends :thumbsup:

    I agree DB and I was just wondering about the same thing. :yes:

    I wonder what the relevant authorities and national media would make of:

    a) having children present at a protest

    b) using those children as 'defence barriers'

    c) parents allowing their children to be used in such a way

    I'm just thinking out loud ... :whistling:

    Thank you and . . . yes.! Scientology's strategy could well be one of "escalation" by deliberately making the situation more dangerous. Involving children raises the stakes considerably. What a very "tech" solution - I can hear L Ron Hubbard now:

    My gut instinct is that a focus should now go on protecting the children. This means reporting to the authorities, providing evidence, and requesting a "presence" at future protests.

    Its also time to bolster our own numbers. I make a plea to all Exes - come out and PROTEST THE ABUSES OF THE COS. Come out with your placards and your cameras and help keep the situation calm.

    There was no doubt this was orchestrated. It was not so obvious at the demonstration because we were divided into two groups with a big bus between us so neither group was aware of what was going on at the other end. So it just looked like some spin bin escapees that had forgotton to take their meds, nothing unusual for Scilons at a demonstration.

    But all parts viewed in sequence reveal something much more sinister. I think they will try and set us up, Operation Freakout style, for something. From their accusations, I'd say there will appear a kiddy porn website or video attributed to Anonymous, much like the infamous "bomb threat" they made against themselves in 2008.

    It will be interesting if they accuse us of something and take us to court on fabricated evidence. If they do, they will see Scientology's dirty laundry aired in court and every instance of fair game and framing critics made part of the public record in Australia.

    Good idea.

    ^^^^^^^^ YES ^^^^^^^

    That will send a message like nothing else will.

    I recall somebody expressing an opinion (on WWP) that Anon numbers had fallen away precisely because the Scientology cult had no confront. Protesting against the abuses in Scientology became dull when it was met with nothing but 'curtain tech'. It will be interesting to see what the cult's new, confrontational stance will bring them. I suspect that it'll put them in the spotlight once more... and that's good because nowadays the Australian media always crucifies the cult.

    Thank you for defending our freedoms, Anons and Exes!

    Additional observation #1: drilling public Scientology victims to go out and 'handle' protesters establishes an interesting precedent. Are they going to do it again next month? And the month after that? Pretty soon, it might be most or all of what public Scientology victims do. This leaves 'em open to the simple question, "Is this what you got into Scientology to do?" The idea that they're operating on a 'war footing' and are 'under attack' might get them to man the barricades a few times, but it introduces an obvious outpoint: If I'm working this hard to KSW, why isn't Scientology working?

    Additional observation #2: if Scn in Australia (or even worldwide) is going to use public Scientology victims to 'handle' dissent, they're going to need a new script each month. Their heavily-drilled modes of attack are never anything but a joke once protesters have seen them before.

    Additional observation #3: I have seen minors present at Anonymous protests before now. The Scientology victims take photos of minors all the time. (Paging all under-age Anons: grab a camera and get to a protest... it can't be a crime for a child to take a photo of a child.) But whatever you decide, DO keep those cameras rolling. You can always delete things before you publish... but those Scientology victims are looking really unstable, and for your own safety, you need to record everything.
