Scientology church near me that I wish to protest. Any guidance or advice?
Find some chums; don't protest on your own.
You're in the right place to do that.
You'll need to say what city you're in.
I'm near Grand Rapids, MI. I wasn't aware that there was a church there-I thought the nearest was in Battle Creek.
So it's a mission.
Get 2 or 3 friends to protest with you.
Print flyers make easy to read signs,nothing abusive.
Contact local police just to inform them if you go ahead with the protest.
Bring music and have a good time.
This is the forum to organise.
video camera, video camera, video camera, DO NOT FORGET your video camera.
If there's one among you who's up for it, have him/her go to the org and see how they treat raw meat, and how much info they'll give out for free. Just be sure not to buy anything or put your name on any forms.
No point, really. They use all the same lures in the toolbox. Best to keep your face to yourself if you plan on being a protester. They will video you to try to intimidate you. Because you know OSA collects video and infos on SPs. So, walking right up and exposing your face and body language can only be a downside, without an upside. Stay safe!
Wow, great responses, thanks everyone. Do you recommend making an event on facebook(under a false name) to find more who wish to protest too?
leave FB out of this is you value the element of surprise.
Also posting on an open forum has the same effect.
But this is a standard protest and not a flash /r/aid.
The person chosen to go in as raw meat would not reveal his or her ties to the protesters. It would be instructive perhaps to see how the local culties handle the situation when trying to reel in another prospect, and Anonymous shows up outside the org. How do they explain that to not-yet-brainwashed public?
I think the Minneapolis cell managed to install a mole for an extended period of time.
When you contact local police, you want to ask the following-type things:
- do we need a permit? if so, what kind of action would not need one? (usually if there's a permit requirement you can get out of it by marching/walking around so it's not a planted protest, it's a moving one - police who are nice will tell you that)
- what are the laws about blocking sidewalks/entrances?
- what are the laws about being masked/covering your face?
- are there any other things we should know about?
You will probably want to have a camera handy or video your protests, which can be handy if the local scilons like to call the police on you (prove you haven't done anything wrong).
