^^ A few people who haven't protested for a while are considering coming again because of the drama. Nice work Cyrus.
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.
I think I have been to six or seven protests now (maybe more, I like the pizza) but I agree with Kooka that this one was orchestrated. It was certainly more threatening and there was MUCH more confrontation. Thinking back, two things really stand out for me and confirm that it was all planned. It centers around the parking.
There is very little parking on the street in front of the Org. Most of it is taken up with the busses that Co$ puts there to deter us. Plus there is a HUGE parking garage right across the alley. But somehow the 'Crazy woman' came at the right time and for some reason decided to look for and found a space right in front on that tiny street. What a coincidence!
And then, just before the dance studio group exits, Kingi drives up, also in that tiny alley and parks right in front of us, and soon after someone conveniently moves there car and another space opens up for him..... hmmm
Maybe they both just have very good parking angels.
It was certainly all drilled. That's what they do.....
There are 3 possiblilities I see for this orchestrated effort
1) They are making a propaganda video to be distributed internally.
2) They are intent on getting AVOs out on some of us.
3) They are intent on fabricating evidence to attempt to get false charges against us to initiate arrests.
My guess is definitely 1 probably in conjunction with 2 or 3. I think 3 would be very dangerous and very stupid for them at this point. Knowing Scientology's history of course, dangerous and stupid things cannot be ruled out.
They're after Kooka and thefatman IMHO.
Actually, the Olympic Torch Relay is the ideal event at which to campaign for Human Rights. The first torch relay was the Berlin Olympics and stands to this day as an historical homage to Nazism.Yes, having kids at protests can be a bad idea depending on the protest. The Olympic torch relay, for instance, was not a good protest to be protesting human rights violations in China. The police really couldn't guarantee my safety that day and told me to go for my own sake...
Why is Maria De Silva supporting an organization that harbors pedophiles and intimidates their victims to lie to law enforcement in order to keep these pedophiles from justice?
Ohhh . . . just think of the protest-sign lulz for the next raid. ; )
