    York UK, 20th April - Re: Bookathon

    As you've probably noticed by now, CoS is having a major marketing drive this weekend which it would be nice to counter with some leafleting, picketing and/or generally informing the public.

    York Uni guys should be arriving prior to term start the day after and most missed out on April 12th. The only concern would be exam week, though that doesn't affect everyone.

    Any general thoughts? Picket / Leaflet / Both?

    If the guys who liaised with the police last time could give an idea of whether we'd need any special permission to do anything at such short notice, that'd be great too.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Sadly, our police contact is out of the office until Monday. Also, york uniers who had to go home because their accomodation was being used by conference guests are only allowed back on Sunday, dunno what time, so are still unlikely to make it.

    If only we'd known about this earlier...

    I have family commitments over the weekend.

    If it was only a couple of people in town handing out leaflets, would the police need to be informed? I suppose in case the Scis call the cops on them.

    Given that we've no idea where the scis are gonna be, we've no idea where we want to be.

    Also, I'm busy over the weekend, and I'm busy now. See you later.

    If I have my ass in gear re: work and one of my friends is willing to come along, then I might go into town in search of Scns with a few leaflets in hand, but given how recently the mission opened, I'm not sure whether they'll have enough public to take part in the book drive. Does anyone have a rough idea of how active it is?

    On the Ides there was one guy who came out to ask the police and Anons about the protest, he said he wasn't a Sci but an ex-sci said he seemed to be one. Plus he did walk out of the Org door, although it could lead to any first floor office in that block. He also said there was one other person who used that office (when asked about the "Dianetics" sign in the window) and she sells books on eBay.

    Having seen no stress test cart or Dianetics flyers in town / outside the mission yesterday, I'm going to give it a miss and get some work out of the way so that I can concentrate properly on the next one.

    tl;dr Got up late, work due.
