The thing that stuns me is that you are probably the most benign protester out there. In fact, especially in this case, I'd use the term "observer" rather than protester. Geez, talk about disproportionate reaction to.....erm... I don't know what they thought they were reacting to.
Because Doug is a dangerous individual, in their eyes. He has been tied to past attempts questioning the legitimacy of Scilons getting street permits from the City close down public streets & sidewalks to hold their events. He has met with public officials regarding this issue. Also, unlike many protesters that are on the boards (monitored by OSA), we plan our raids oepnly, effectively giving the cult the heads-up of when & where we are going to protest. Doug doesn't do this.
They were expecting us on Sunday night. Andy was aware of the Facebook posting that anti created.. where I responded I was going to be at the HGB. Lynn Fountain-Campbell was the only other person to respond.. that she would join me at the HGB after she got off work.
There are, obviously, past issues between Doug & the cult that I am unaware of because the Scilons truly hate Doug. When I was talking to Andy & Franck Sunday night, they kept asking me where Doug was, convinced we were together. Andy mentioned that Doug & Tory had shown up to protest last September which caused some waves.
