    First report from Tustin 1-17-09.

    This was my first protest ever for anything, and today's my 58th b-day.

    So, from my perspective, it went well.

    There were 6 anons, but the org was pretty full of people from what I've heard about Tustin. Prolly 30+ cars in the parking lot.

    There was also what I would consider a heavy presence of PI's. My guess would be at least 5 white vans/SUV's + other scilon cars lurking about. There were no instances of handlers coming out to us, but one scilon in a car was stopped at the traffic light, rolled down a window and said "how wonderful the tech is and it helps people." She rolled her window up after I asked how her stats were.

    Weather was warm, got lots of horn love, some very enthusiastic from young people. After about 2 hours the others left for L.A.

    My thanks to AnonOrange for running interference for me with the PI's as we left. It was an exciting 10 minutes for me going back to my car (I parked very close) and I had to do some Evasion and Escape involving a restroom and a costume change. Heady stuff for an old man....

    There was a point when the ratio between PI's and protesters was dead even...but then...things started to get dangerous.

    Enter...the equalizers. Dr. Glib and Nurse Noice.

    Tustin - the home of WIN.

    Another congrats from me, meatpin. Glad you enjoyed it. Of course, with Glibby and RiF there, you were always going to enjoy yourself.

    Is anyone in contact with AnonOrange? I really want to thank him for helping me with the PI's on the way out. Really, the entire group helped too, because I was pinned down for about 5 minutes. I think everyone else started leaving then too, and the PI's that had me cornered took off. I got to talk to a lady about Fair Game that way though...

    It was 80 degrees here in Orange County. Yes, we're having a lovely summer this winter. The raid got off to a bumpy start with AO having a salty exchange with one of the posted PI's (Blue Shirt Guy? Cigar Man? Not sure...), which ended up at the Tustin PD where a complaint was made. The PI's did back off some from there, but frankly no one minds the PI's except for AO. He calls them names. We invite them to join us.

    It was a small group this time, only six of us, but just as effective. Lots of horn love. Lots of smiles and thumbs up. A few one fingered salutes. Daile optimistically surmised that the birds must be aimed at Scientology. Who'd wanna flip off this fun-loving bunch?

    We had no visitors from inside the org. There were more cars in the parking lot than usual, so something was going on in there. No visits from the po po either. There were four doctors and a nurse among us so all medical emergencies were expertly handled. There was once incident which I believe was caught on film and may be included in a video later on.

    The Tustin Wreckers represent.

    No no no! Anonymous is nothing but kiddie hackers, remember? :)

    Congrats on a successful 1st raid and happy birthday!
