Los Angeles Feb 12, 2011 - Chanology 3rd Anoniversary

Post by I'mglib » Sun Feb 13, 2011 5:20 am

I just got home from a very successful protest. We had 20 or so people, including Mark Bunker who was working on his documentary, and a reporter, I think from the LA Times. A big contingent came from San Diego, including XBarb, as well as The Anti, OT8 Michael, Graham, Tory, RIF, Smurf, AGP, Anon, Anon, Anon, Anon, etc.

Some handlers came out, but they were very low key, I only saw one guard on a bicycle (there are usually several). We saw a few public Scientologists drive into the parking lot, and strangely they waved back when we waved at them.

Then we went to HGB where a bunch of people took our pictures and talked to us. It's pretty hard to stand out on Hollywood Blvd, but apparently we did. In fact, several open air tour buses went by and waved.

We had a ton of cupcakes.

Photos coming.

At the HGB, the back gate opened up and a bunch of suits poured out while a fancy Escalade with darkened back windows drove out & raced up Ivar toward Franklin. There were 2 security people in suits & with dangling earpieces in the front seat. It looked like DM in the back. I videotaped a glimpse as the Escalade pulled out. Two guys in suits walked in front of me & tried to block me from filming. But Lissa Uvizl was a sweetie pie. She addressed me by name and told me to watch out... did want DM's drive running me over.

Great pics! Congratulations!

PS: Why not kill a few birds at the same time and get Cupcake Wars to film outside of an org during a protest?
I'd go to L.A. for that! :)

Yesterday was truly a fun picket!

First off, it was Anonymous' 3rd Anniversary. C of $ can go "Oh look
how few are there". However, as I've pointed out in my videos on YT:
"There may be less at the pickets, but IF stuff kicks up, Anonymous is
still around~!" I've gotten more than one PM saying, 'Absolutely....We watch
we're always around, we don't forget". :alien:

Secondly---the day was gorgeous! It was 80 degrees, lovely, and delightful
to picket with those who did come out.

WBM arrived to top off the day, and he got to continue his documentary,
with some of the picket in the background.

The *true* leaders of C of $ were there, in full dresses, with tiara's on..looking
fabulous and carrying the *true* messages: "$cientology YOUR TIME IS UP"
etc. :cheers:

L. Ron Hubbard Way was absolutely D E A D. Lynn and I later on shared stories of the "old
days" there and how it was bustling all around, and up and down Franklin, too, with businesses
flourishing, (all but hers gone, or very empty),
New York George's Restaurant always filled (now gone), "George's General Store" filled always,
(Now gone)---etc. Also, AOLA (the Advanced Org) which used to be bustling with people inside and out, was locked up, with ALL of their windows covered UP, so no one could see us. How stupid is *that*?! The place is D E A D. (and we drove back by there, hours later, to drop someone off, and it was still d e a d, with maybe 5-6 Sea Org outside.

Later, we all headed over to the HGB in Hollywood, and for whatever reason,
there were *tons* of photographers taking our pictures. (Not OSA---we asked
and talked with them). Maybe they're here for the Grammy's, or it was The FBI Investigating
David Miscavige, or "anonymous" getting so well known for many other
areas in the world, today.....or the magnificent article in the New Yorker with Paul Haggis, and others,
or the WW Exposure of C of $'s abuses. Whatever it was, tons came to take photos.
One group of people said they were doing
a "hollywood Photo group" thing. Many others stopped, or drove by and took
photos. Where all those go, who knows, but the WORD IS OUT! :alien:

Thanks to ALL who help expose the abuses of this Insidious CULT of $cientology!

And thanks to I'm Glib and Dan for their photos. I have a few.....I'm trying to
get posted #-o

Love to all :love5:

Tory/Magoo
PS: Happy Valentines Day to ALL :wink: :heartsign: :kissysmilies: :dancing7up:

PSS: Besides this excellent day being one of my favorites ....I arrived home to be
handed a huge envelope from "The New Yorker". It was a copy of the magazine, sent
from them! I remember asking for a copy. So often media will say they'll send a copy---
rarely do they. I was VERY happy to get this! If you don't have a hard copy---I'd suggest
buying one: it's worth it.

Well done you guys in sunny California. :D

Great pics, I'mglib. And the videos were not bad either, Smurf. They didn't like having you around as that limo pulled out. :lol:
