Keeping the Protests Focused (KPF? ) Just a suggestion I have after watching some of the protests videos circling the net. It seems to me that not all the protesters completely understand why we're here, how to conduct themselves, and what info needs to be spread. We've made tons of pamphlets for handing out to the public and plenty were already available online. We've put a lot of time into getting the word out and planning our message. What we don't have is a nice 1-page pamphlet telling the protesters what they need to know. The people that frequent these forums know what's up; they know the real goal of these protests, the many different problems with the Co$, and I'm confident would be prepared to face any challenges or questions at the protests. However, I'm quite certain a considerable number of people that are going to be at the protests won't have done their homework. They might be there with the wrong message (protesting against the beliefs of Scientology instead of the actions of the Co$), they might not know even the basic protesting tips, and they might be woefully uninformed about the Co$ and have nothing constructive to add if asked about it by the public. It'd be great if everyone took the time to read all the info here and on the net before going to a protest, but everyone here knows that won't be the case. The best way to prepare for this, in my opinion, is to make a short 1-page handout that can be distributed by the people that know what's up. It should contain a brief explanation of the goals of the protest, the rules/tips for protesting, and a condensed list of the crimes of the Co$. The handout should be customized to fit the individual ordinances of the location of that protest (for example, no masks; rules on noise, etc). I think if one of these was handed to each protester before the actual protests begin it would go a long way in making sure everyone was there with the right message and stayed legal.
