    LA Celebrity Centre Gala Aug 7th postgame

    [COLOR="SeaGreen"]Haven't seen any report yet from LA on the Gala at CCI so I'm reposting this report from OCMB picket reports section this morning: [/COLOR]
    ref : Operation Clambake Message Board :: View topic - CCI 7 August 2010 Gala Anniversary
    (edit: There's also a follow-up update at the bottom of this post)

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Scientology was up to its old tricks trying to stop the lawful free speech of protesters with street and sidewalk closures at this year's Gala Anniversary Celebration at the Celebrity Centre International in Los Angeles.

    img3966j.jpg

    My friend Steve and I were first on the scene. I had a copy of their LA Public Works Street Closure permit with me. I had previous talked with their enforcement personnel and their committee president who all told me the permit does not allow them to deny the general public from any street, which includes sidewalks. Public Works has repeatedly said to call the police if a sidewalk is closed to the general public. Of course the police, with no training on what permits allow, have to make a decision in the field and it is always unknown how the police will respond to such a request.

    The permit listed several 3 streets around CCI closed and the sidewalk on the south side of Franklin closed. Franklin is a major street with a lot of automobile and pedestrian traffic.

    Usually, the police interrupt "sidewalk closed" in a literal way even though on the permit it clearly states the general public is not be be denied access at any time.

    I called LAPD non-emergency dispatch and requested assistance. Then I attempted to walk down the sidewalk of Franklin to a bus stop. CCI security and contract security from Talon block me and told me the sidewalk was closed. I told them they had no authority on a public sidewalk and told them to call the police if they had a problem; they said they already did.

    Two patrol men arrived in about 5 minutes. They started to tell me they had a permit to close the sidewalk. I made my case showing the officer a copy of the permit with the section stating the general public could not be denied access. I showed him how some people not associated with the event were allowed to walk down the sidewalk and how telling protesters they could not walk down the sidewalk with signs was a content base restriction and that the sidewalk could only be closed for safety or emergency reasons. I added that if they claimed protesters could be disruptive and create a safety issue that would be a prior restraint of free speech.

    The officer asked if we could protest across the street where there were several sidewalk cafes and a lot of pedestrian traffic with several large SUV's parked in front of the cafes. I explained that protesting there could interfere with pedestrian traffic and that we would not be seen by our target audience and people passing by would think we were protesting the cafes.

    The officers said they had to craft an equitable solution and I suggested they the protesters would not go down their other closed public streets, even though they had no right to close them to the general public, but that the sidewalk should be open to protesters and the general public; they agreed.

    The PAC security, CCI staff, OSA Int staff, and Talon Security did not appear to be pleased as they were briefed by the police.

    CoS staff made another attempt to block me from going down the sidewalk saying they had requested a sergeant to come and rule on the sidewalk closure. The sergeant came and listened to OSA Int staff and his officers. He told OSA the sidewalk would remain open.

    Later, more protesters arrived. OT Committee members attempted to block protesters' signs with balloons and OSA staff made crude comments to protesters. The two patrol men stayed while I was there and I thought they were very professional and fair.

    Steve spotted Anne Archer in the passenger seat of a car waiting in traffic. I showed Ms. Archer my sign. It read "Scientology Breaks Up Families". She looked at and then away. I turned my sign around and she looked again. This side of the sign said "Xenu" with the phrase "Body Thetans" repeated over and over behind the Supreme Ruler's name. Ms. Archer raised her index finger and move it from side to side as if to say that's a no no.

    This is awesome. That sign is very pertinent for her. It's like saying to her, look at what your son will go through to stay connected to his family and money.

    I figured that if they can double post someones comment which included coerced abortions then their moderation is fairly lax/easygoing. However, I've not had my comment posted yet (which was more relavent to the gala). Maybe moderator went to bed and hasn't woke up yet.

    Re: LA Celebrity Centre Gala Aug 7th postgame

    alright, i got there a little late and then found AO. he had a few scientologist call him a thief because he had some balloons on him, i can confirm he did not steal them, some other guy had them and he asked if he can buy them. really not sure why he wanted them but not sure if he really bought them or the guy just gave them to him.

    then found myself talking to a few scientologist for a good while, mostly with shakey hands. I still don't know his real name. they told me about a lot of other special interest groups like the drug companies, FBI, and CIA. I did tell them "you know one company that you accuse of making mind altering drugs? Pfizer? they also make viagra."

    CIA, isn't that an spy agency? mainly about getting info. and FBI, federal law enforcement, I think it's funny how everyone that complains about the FBI are those that think they are above the law. I know they did some ass kicking to the KKK back during the civil rights moment, and arrested those Hutaree nut jobs that plotted to kill police officers. scientology's justification has always been "they were told lies about us, those people were all suppressive," or "they planted evidence" which is it?

    no scientology, you guys fucked up, and did the crap you did for selfish reasons. remember, an FBI agent is also responsible for taking down the nixon administration, these people are just doing there jobs. which comes to something else, something they told me about is how they are just there trying to help people, I noted to them that cool and all, nothing wrong with that. but, I believe they are "helping" for all the wrong reasons, only just to spread scientology.

    Also i was told they have taken far meaner opponents, like the US government, no really, accusing them of being an enemy because of the "lies" they were told. I told them how funny that is because of how they make an effort to get in good graces with elected official and such, just like jim jones did. then they go on and say they are nothing like peoples temple...

    I get asked why i harass them, I ask about what they did to a list of people (mark, tory, barb, etc.) and CAN was on that list. they claim "oh, it started off for noble reasons then started attacking religion all together." I remember being told by another it was started by psychotic criminals, which is it? but anywho I came across info that CA was in fact right about a number of groups, but only wrong with scientology? considering the behavior I have seen on a number of occasions CAN was right.

    they also accused psychiatry of hitler and 9/11, saying they are drugging everyone to create chaos in the world... hitler was a man that truly believed the jews and anyone else not fitting were all evil, thats what he really believed. and with islamic extremist, you know why they have suicide bombers? you do know these groups pay their family a crap load of money if they do that right? also they are told they will be martyrs and get 72 virgins. also told me about bin laden being drugged by his psychiatrist, Zawahiri, the guys a surgeon.

    yes, a little long i guess, I'll post more later
