    We're splitting hairs now. Let someone else have a go if they want to. It's mostly good.
  2. Re: Postgame press release

    One more edit for clarity in the Snow White and Freakout paragraph. Also removed a bit of extraneous info, for the sake of clarity and length. And I'm editing the 'all around' thing, because of repetition. Also, changing it renders the stupid round/around argument moot.

    So here you go. Behold my marvelous new edits:

    (INSERT CITY,STATE HERE), (INSERT DATE OF DELIVERY HERE):


    On July 12th, 2008, at 11:00 am local time, in cities all around the world, Anonymous intends to don its best tux, order ‘shaken not stirred’ cocktails for everyone and bring the activities of the Church of Scientology’s intelligence agency, known as the Office of Special Affairs (or 'OSA'), to wider attention and greater scrutiny.

    Last month's protest was pirate themed, in order to parody and expose the abuses that occur within Scientology's private navy, the Sea Org, but now it’s ‘Spy vs Sci’ as Anonymous asks the question:

    “Why does something that describes itself as a religion need an intelligence agency that aggressively persecutes critics?” - PUT THIS IN BOLD AND ITALICS, PLEASE - AND REMOVE THIS BIT.

    The OSA is a highly organised sub-division of the Church of Scientology that has a license to gather intelligence and administer ‘justice and punishment’ to its perceived foes.

    It also provides the agents that carry out the ‘Fair Game’ policy, by which critics of the Church of Scientology are targeted, harassed, threatened and intimidated in an attempt to silence or punish them.

    Most Scientologists are unaware of the functions of the OSA and accept what their leaders tell them about it. However, there is a growing body of evidence that OSA agents operate to attack perceived enemies by using infiltration, bribery, burglary, and blackmail, in addition to threats, intimidation, assaults and worse.

    A well-documented example of the illegal actions of the OSA was 'Operation Snow White', a wide scale and sophisticated infiltration of the U.S. Government itself. Another example was 'Operation Freakout', a long campaign of harassment and intimidation against Paulette Cooper (writer of the book 'The Scandal of Scientology'), which involved distributing false propaganda about her as well as fabricating evidence in an attempt to frame her for making bomb threats.

    Anonymous can also point to many other examples and if required can back all these up with facts, testimonies and evidence.

    Who and what is Anonymous?

    We are a collection of individuals united by ideas. Anonymous chose Scientology as a campaign target because of the events surrounding the now infamous Tom Cruise Scientology video; whilst the video itself was not enough to spark interest (although it was amusing), the aggressive actions that the Church of Scientology attempted to take to remove it did get our attention. When Anonymous found out even more about the crimes and abuses of the Church of Scientology, action became inevitable. Anonymous is the voice of the body politic and the consciousness of the Internet that has stepped offline and into the real world.

    Since its campaign began, Anonymous has uncovered or brought to the public eye many of the illegal actions, fraudulent activities, and human rights violations perpetrated by the Church of Scientology.

    Although described as ‘terrorists’ by the Church of Scientology, Anonymous' methods have been peaceful. Conversely, there have been several incidents of assaults on Anonymous members by Scientologists, mostly as attempts to unmask and identify them so that the OSA can target them for harassment.

    But instead of being scared off, these incidents have strengthened our resolve and add more credence to one of Anonymous' core messages: that the Church of Scientology is both willing and prepared to go to any lengths to silence those who would speak out against them.

    However, Anonymous is not intimidated, because the nature of Anonymous is irrepressible.

    We are Anonymous
    We are legion
    We do not forgive
    We do not forget

    Expect us

    Okay, I'm pretty happy with this now. It announces the next theme, educates journalists about the OSA and mentions the growing numbers of assaults on Anons. It also is resembles international English pretty goodly well.

    Someone else give it a read over, but otherwise - DO IT FAGGOTS!i!

    Re: Postgame press release

    I'm new, so tell me if I'm way out of line, but should there also be a version to add a line notifying the media of a local protest? The local media I work with will not read something unless the first line shows something local going on. Of course, I'm in a small town...


    On July 12th, 2008, at 11:00 am local time, in cities all around the world, Anonymous intends to don its best tux, order ‘shaken not stirred’ cocktails all around and bring the activities of the Church of Scientology’s intelligence agency, known as the Office of Special Affairs (OSA), to wider attention and greater scrutiny by holding local protests. The local protest in (name of city) will be held in front of the Church of Scientology, located at (address) on the 12th.

    Last month's protest was pirate themed, in order to parody and expose the abuses that occur within Scientology's, Sea Organisation (Sea Org) , but now it’s ‘Spy vs Sci’ as Anonymous asks the question: “Why does something that describes itself as a religion need an intelligence agency that aggressively persecutes critics?” To this end, all protesters will be dressed as spies.

    The OSA, formerly known as the ‘Guardians Office’ and before that known as ‘The Hubbard Communications Office’, is a highly organized sub-division of the Church of Scientology that has a license to gather intelligence and administer ‘justice and punishment’ to its perceived foes. The OSA has a history of being the agents that carry out the ‘Fair Game’ policy, by which critics of the Church of Scientology are targeted, using techniques of harassment, threats and intimidation in an attempt to dissuade it's critics

    Two well-documented examples of the illegal actions of the OSA are Operation Snow White, which was a wide scale and sophisticated infiltration of the U.S. Government itself, and Operation Freakout, a long campaign of harassment and intimidation against Paulette Cooper (writer of The Scandal of Scientology), which involved distributing false propaganda on her, to her friends and relatives, as well as fabricating evidence, in an attempt to frame her for sending bomb threats. Anonymous can also point to many other examples and if required can back all these up with facts, testimonies and evidence.

    Anonymous is not intimidated by these actions because the nature of Anonymous is irrepressible.

    If anything they have strengthened our resolve and instead merely emphasize, that which we already know. That Scientology is both willing and prepared, to go to any lengths, to silence those who would speak out against them.
