    Currently tripping balls off medicine so just deal with the trainwreck this post will probably be. This gif pretty much sums up the raid, with Scientology on the left and Anonymous on the right:

    Anyway, so people were on time, which stunned me. And there were more of us than usual. We had another ginger, and Eight had finally succumbed to gingeritus and showed visible spreading of the disease through his facial hair. Grand total for gingers was two and a half. But one was a long lost oldfag, so that was nice.

    Off we rolled with the troll cannon in full blast, only for it to cut out midway while Strobe half heartedly tried to fix it at the traffic lights.

    Just as we were setting up, Tony arrived! For those of you that don't know about Tony, his daughter, Becky, has recently been pulled back into the cult. Tony tried to say hello to Sam, and Sam essentially panicked and barricaded the door shut, all the while putting on a mean poker face.

    There was lots of honking (which we left to the newfags), and lots of cake (provided by an oldfag and another lady who I will get to in a moment), lots of newfags, including a blind Anon who decided to turn up, kindly guided by White. Dancing, music (which I finally got to bitch about alongside everyone else), a mini honk train, and maaaaany many leaflets. We also had a nice chat with the Irish Anons over the phone, when suddenly...

    WILD CAKE LADY APPEARED.

    WILD CAKE LADY USED DRIVE-BY CAKE PELT.

    IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE.

    A woman dressed in a metal studded leather bra drove past five or six times, leaned out of the car window, and threw plastic wrapped cake at us, followed with cries of 'FOR MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS!' and 'LET THEM EAT CAKE!' White even managed to sneak a couple of hugs in.

    Basically, the best thing to ever happen to use at a raid. Ever.

    Finally, Strobe's speaker cut out for no reason, and we decided to go to the pub. Oddly enough, no one had mentioned the pub until it cut out. I wonder what we're missing...

    Lots of Pokemon talk, Missingno, Oak, Gary Oak, Metapod used Harden, etc. Food. Drink. Laughs and talk and a brief political debate about gun laws (I have no idea why) and a discussion about setting up our own scouse colony in Africa.

    All in all, excellent turn out, excellent raid, and awesome post-raid. I hope some of the newbies (and returning oldfags) will be back next month.

    Prof out.

    Two community support officers arrive, and then leave without even talking to us

    Tony amused at Sam's chosen method of confronting and shattering suppression. (Sam is our local OSA/PR guy)

    Sam actually filming Tony drive off down the street on his iPhone.

    It begins.

    We came armed with legal info, so the banner was back in action.
    [IMG]

    Just a view of the protest past the front of the Org.
    [IMG]

    But wait!
    [IMG]

    Seriously, Sam was watching the protest for ages. And when it wasn't him, it was the woman who I'm told works on reception. Just... watching.

    We sent out a pretty clear message.

    ... at every opportunity

    Some fags made a welcome return
    [IMG]

    ... while the newfags did a sterling job. While unusual, some of the flyering tactics proved surprisingly effective.

    Not sure whether this guy is finding us or the cult more confusing...

    Newfags doing all the work it seems

    Fairly sure this was a thumbs up, rather than just a 'meh'.
    [IMG]

    An old comrade dropped by and left us some goodies. This among them.
    [IMG]

    At which point we all played 'drop the banner' until someone was willing to hold it

    Nothing is going to stop you learning about Scientology! Definitely not an oncoming taxi.
    [IMG]

    Scientology has competition. Triology: far more affordable, makes just as much sense and we don't even make you shout at ashtrays.

    I don't have a caption for this.
    [IMG]

    We may have lost a few people on the way to the post-raid pic, but dragged the erm, new oldfags (?) to the pub.

    Moar here too

    Shit, I knew I'd forgotten something! Yeah, Wild Cake Lady also threw raisins at us shouting "we're RAISIN awareness!"

    And you're very welcome, Novu~

    Incidentally, for anyone wondering why that Scientology Hurts Families sign looks so battered...
    ... here's a photo from 2008:
