INFORM have had Graeme Wilson as a speaker at their own seminars: https://whyweprotest.net/community/threads/39647/#post-839593
Do you really think they're going to be helpful in this situation? INFORM actually devote more time to trying to stop anti-cult campaigners, and belittling the ex-members who speak out against the abuses as being 'biased and unreliable'.
These need addressing if anyone in Loldon has the time or imagination:
My personal experience: they have helped me a lot with info, and I have worked as an ordinary citizen for several years on activities actively combatting several culty groups, not just Scientology. [I am not an academic, and have no connection to them, BTW.]
They do work to raise awareness of cults trying to operate on campuses, and they gather intel on this and other cult activities.
They are useful because lot of people go to them with info, about thousands of groups.
The seminars at Inform are aimed at an audience of informed people: former cult members, families, academics and so on. They are not aimed at student all-comers, trying to 'sell' a cult. On the same platform you will get speakers who have had problems leaving cults and so on, explaining their sometimes harrowing experiences.
Best of luck tomorrow chaps, please send them my best wishes.
'luck' is not a factor
The weather outide is awful...bring umbrella tech (hope some are hard core)

Someone post a proper postgame report.
In the meantime.
Anonymous Scientology Protest with Charlie Veitch, London
Published on Feb 10, 2013
#OpXenu The Anonymous group protest (with a little help from Charlie Veitch) on Tottenham Court Road in London, outside the Scientology centre. "In solidarity with other Scientology actions on this day. We will be reminding Scientology that we haven't forgotten the death of Lisa McPherson, whose birthday would of been the 10-02-2013 if it weren't for the actions of the cult of Scientology."
nice turn out guys
^^ newfriends not knowing about the longstanding agreement that Anons/clams don't cross the street.
Still it was fine raid.
The clams had staff in TCR but they had locked the doors and turned out the lights.
A policeman pointed out that they were talking pictures from one of the floors.
at least you can use loudspeakers, unlike in New York.
yeah, after all, if they lock the doors and turn out the lights, Anons go away. tee hee herp deep
This is why we have Unit Zero.
Every time it blares across Tottenham Court Road, you are with us in spirit, enturbulating by remote.
I did stop to as them where Martin was, but sadly, no response
Instead of trying the PTS/SP,they went for let's hide upstairs and pretend no ones home tech.
I thought martin became a goth and moved to Hull?
imagine paying to learn how to play hide and seek
I had emailed few days ago Inform and got this response:
"Of course I don’t know the intentions of Hackney Community College and the reasons why they invited a spokesperson for Scientology – they may actually consider the organisation within the faith spectrum according to their multi-faith programme.
On the other hand, you are right to point out some questions that have been raised about the organisation, its practices, and especially recent developments. One would hope that the organisers of the multi-faith programme would have been aware of this. Involvement in Scientology can be quite costly, which is an issue for students.
Perhaps you could suggest to them that, should they want reliable and non-partisan information about Scientology or other minority religious groups for future multi-faith events, they can contact us for information first.

Lame or what?!
Seems reasonable to me.
I take "some questions that have been raised about the organisation, its practices, and especially recent developments" as formal-language code for "we think they're fucknuts".
The rest of the email reads as "wtf does Hackney College have to do with us?", which seems fair enough too.
A bit late, the video of LoLdon Chanology year 5
Nope, dangerously close to lame, IMHO. The beliefs are one thing, the criminal organisation is another. It's like inviting an Italian mafia don to speak on the importance of family values and a strong catholic faith. So, by giving the spokesperson from the criminal organisation known as the "church" of $cientology the same status as a spokesperson for a religion, INFORM is halfway down the slippery slope of thinking that there's nothing wrong with the organisation, and those apostates probably have a hidden agenda anyway...
Sorry, but this was not a strong reply from INFORM. If they had wanted to encourage discussion of diverse beliefs, they could have made a remark along the lines of "perhaps it would be great to have both a Freezoner and a corporate $cientology spokesperson at the event" or something.
But yeah, it's Hackney College's fuck-up not INFORM's. But INFORM chose to frame their reply as if the criminal organisation known as the "church" of $cientology was somehow a "church" first and foremost (and not what it actually is, a criminally convicted organisation).
Some alternatives to INFORM regarding the Co$ include "Escape" (although you should find out about where they come from), the CIC (dunno how well they're doing - they were under attack from the Co$, always a good sign a an anti-cult organisation - kind of )
http://www.cultinformation.org.uk Other great organisations are http://www.familysurvivaltrust.org and http://www.dialogcentre.org.uk
Thanks ever so muchly. Their details, and the details of INFORM, forwarded to Hackney community college
thought I already posted this here, my contribution...
