April showers, OT powers: Chicago in action again! Here's what it's looking like so far. Info is subject to change as more stuff gets ironed out. Date: Saturday, April 9, 2011 Time: TBD; so far 1 p.m. or so is winning the vote. We typically go for 3 hours or so. Location: At or near the Scientology building, 3011 N. Lincoln Ave. (The address is not 3017 - that's just something I had to punch into the event header to make the map show the correct spot.) Important: we are in the middle of a big legal tangle but should now have the path cleared for protesting in front of their building. For starting out, we usually we gather up at the corner of the nearby 6-way intersection of Lincoln, Wellington, & Southport in front of St. Alphonsus church. That spot will be our fall-back point if for some reason the police are still insisting we can't be in front of the org. We'll have to see what happens on event day. If you're new, show up at the area, find your fellow anons, and we'll tell you what's going on. Expect lots of police calls from crying Scientologists. Bring: Weather-appropriate gear (rainwear, sunblock, comfortable footwear), signs, fliers, cameras, friends, etc. And a mask, scarf, bandana, or disguise if you roll that way. Expect to be photographed by the Scientologists and keep a cool head if they try any malarkey. We have plenty of extra signs and fliers which you're welcome to borrow as long as you handle them in a way which isn't going to damage them. ..... Please use this thread for anything related to the event: planning, questions, shooting the breeze, whatever. The details of the event (location, starting time, built-in map, etc.) will be updated as things are collectively worked out. Have fun!
