Planning: CCHR Traveling Roadshow August 17-30, 2013

Discussion in 'Canada' started by Spork Derpner, Aug 10, 2013.

    Thought I'd drop a proper planning thread here since it seems the wheels are in motion.

    Also pertinent.

    With this being a two week CCHR gig, do we try to double up and hit the temp org at 77 Peter St. as well? It's not that far away. Looks like 15 minutes or so by foot.

    I'm revved up about attending my first raid, so please excuse an old man's enthusiasm.

  2. I was thinking we could start the CCHR protests at noon on Saturday the 17th, around when their exhibit starts.

    As far as the Peter Street thing is concerned, I just heard about it from Spork. I will scout the address and take photos this evening. I may even film another YouTube video.

    I will post that stuff here.

    Thanks, Spork!

    Suggest someone send tweet to @ezralevant who is reporter at Toronto Sun / Sun TV. He likes controversy. Hates holocaust denials. (Don't have a twitter myself.)
    ie for a tweet:
    "Scientology's CCHR running holocaust revisionism display as part of Psychiatry The Industry of Death Aug 17-30 at 788 King St W. Disgusting"

    Did he @ezralevant delete your tweet?

    It looks like a delete took place.

    I can attend this. Wonder if some SP's and Ex's can too.

    In the later half of this vid, Berlin fags doinrite with their recent protest outside of a Scientology anti-psychiatry tent:

    I was quite shocked to see Scientology putting something like this up in Germany! Surely it's not the usual CCHR holocaust revisionist spiel? Or are they really that stupid??

    Based upon what I have seen and heard at Raids, yes, they really are that stupid. They have all made stupid a full-time job.

    If a large protest is to be assembled, we might need to let the police know ahead of time. Just so we don't get bothered by the bastard cult.

    Just in case it turns into a large protest, spontaneously (sans organization,) it may be a wise move to inform the City Police that the protest is planned.

    If it is explained that it may become a large protest, good advice and possibly gratitude will be received.

    Maybe Kimberly can handle the police coordination through her fiance's law enforcement connections. This is probably wise no matter how big this thing gets. What Night Owl said ^^^

    I'll be bringing the digital camera, plenty of AA batteries, acoustic speaker and a real cheap sign (need to write on it first before then). This is gonna be fun indeed. Backup camera, my smartphone (or the broken screen kodac pocket cam).

    Potential sign for someone? The title might need changing. I can provide the PSD file for easy editing in GIMP or Photoshop if anyone wants, or I can do it for you . Just PM me.

  16. Wow... TorontosRoot, Spork, "Anons"... Thank you so much for your interest and support.

    I understand that Toronto Anons and anti-Co$ protesters have LIVES, so I don't expect anyone to be outside 788 King West constantly throughout the 17th to the 30th. We've got to get as many people involved as possible so that the CCHR/Co$ is distracted and inconvenienced by our PEACEFUL, LAW-ABIDING protest for as much of those two weeks ad possible.

    Plus, our protest would prevent more ignorant bystanders from walking into their "Psychiatry: An Industry of Death" exhibit.

    As has been said, don't worry about the Toronto Police, and use as many masks and cameras as you feel are necessary. I can have my husband Sean Rooney warn the Toronto cops of our protest in the next couple of days.

    The point of view and attitude of the Toronto cops is that they're most interested in protecting US from the Co$, not the other way around. That was also the attitude of the cops at the 2009 Yonge Street Co$ HQ protest. NO ONE was arrested, or even the slightest bit hassled by the cops! And most of those protesters (unlike me) were in Guy Fawkes masks.

    There's no law in Canada's criminal code against wearing masks at a protest, provided we are peaceful and don't vandalize. Montreal may have their own mask law, but Toronto doesn't have the same law.

    I've already informed Tony Ortega that we will begin at noon on Saturday the 17th, so he can publicize us. He's already said "thank you" to me via Facebook for giving him the tip about 788 King Street West.

    Spork- I will scout the Peter Street address you informed us of this afternoon, and post photos (and perhaps another YouTube video) here. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the tip! I see no reason why we can't "kill two birds with one stone."

    Although I despise the Toronto Sun, when Ezra attacks the Co$, he becomes an ally. So thank you very much for tweeting him!


    - Share and publicize my YouTube video at 788

    - Distribute the photos we have of the CCHR's set-up at 788 King Street West, and publicize the address

    - Get the word out... We will begin at noon on Saturday the 17th, even if everyone can't make it!

    - We will be flexible with peoples' lives and scheduling so people may protest whenever they're able to throughout the 17th to the 30th.

    - I will tweet this info via my Twitter (kim_crawley) and @ the relevant Anon and Anti-Scientology Twitter accounts. Please RT!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! You guys are awesome!

  18. Here is the "press release" I sent to Anons, politicians, cops, and Toronto mainstream media:

    Attention Anons and anti-Scientology people everywhere!

    Scientology front group CCHR is setting up a "Psychiatry: An Industry of Death" exhibit at 788 King Street West near downtown Toronto. It'll run from August 17th to the 30th.

    WE WILL PROTEST peacefully starting at noon on Saturday, August 17th.


    We hope to have protesters in front of 788 King Street West for as much of the August 17th to 30th duration as possible.

    The goals are:

    - To inform the general public of the harm the Co$ and the CCHR does.

    - To deter the general public from entering their "Psychiatry: An Industry of Death" exhibit. (We will be peaceful and not stop people from entering the building, but our protest will discourage them.)

    - To be a LAW-ABIDING inconvenience to the Co$.

    Do understand that the Toronto Police are on OUR side, and will work to protect US from the Co$.

    Masks and cameras are LEGAL as long as we are peaceful and don't vandalize.

    I understand that people have LIVES and will only be available for certain times through the 17th to 30th period. (You may even want to visit the CNE, it's a close walk from 788 King Street West!) That's perfectly fine.

    The more people we get involved and SPREAD THE WORD, the more people we can have in front of 788 King at various points during the roughly two week period.

    Wear masks if you feel you need it to protect you from "fair game." The cops will try to protect us from "fair game," too.

    Bring cameras! (Our phones, obviously. LOL)

    Make and distribute fliers!

    The big "kick-off" will be on Saturday August 17th at NOON to coincide with the CCHR's exhibit.

    Spread the word! PLEASE SHARE THIS POST!

    See the linked thread at Why We Protest for more information.

    I will also investigate a Co$ site on Peter Street that someone informed me about. I will post photos of the site soon HERE and we may integrate it into our protest. Thanks, Spork!

  19. I'll now walk over to 77 Peter Street, take photos, and post them here.

    Thanks, Spork!
  20. liasion with toronto police et al. established.
  21. Photos of the 77 Peter Street site, including a "selfie" of me.

    It appears this is Co$' substitute of their Yonge Street HQ while its "under renovation."

    Here's a Google map of the walk from 788 King Street West to 77 Peter Street. It's all right in my neighborhood, a roughly 17 minute walk between the sites:

    Thanks, Spork!

    We can coordinate something.

    In other news, we've informed 14 Division, the Toronto Police division that our protest will be in.

    They will have a combination of uniformed and plainclothes officers on foot. Their objectives are to protect US from the Co$ and collect intel.

    The RCMP and CSIS are also conducting a thorough investigation of Scientology in Toronto, including 77 Peter and 788 King West. THAT'S ALL I'M ALLOWED TO SAY ABOUT THAT. ;-)

    No offense, but that's a pretty lousy "press release" for mainstream media.

    "Anonymous" to Protest Scientology Anti-Psychiatry Exhibit

    TORONTO, ONTARIO. August 13, 2013.

    Anonymous denounces the arrival of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights' (CCHR) travelling anti-psychiatry exhibit, "Psychiatry: An Industry of Death". The CCHR is a front organization of the Church of Scientology, which is a criminally-convicted organization in Canada [1]. The Church of Scientology is not recognized as a charitable organization in Canada[2].

    Under the guise of a group that aims to expose the abuse of psychiatry, CCHR is an organization whose goal is to abolish psychiatry and replace mental healtcare with the dangerous techniques of Scientology. In addition, CCHR has claimed that the attacks of 11 September 2001 and the Holocaust were caused by psychiatrists[3].

    Anonymous will be at the exhibit opening located at 788 King Street West on August 17, 2013 at noon to inform the public of the true nature of the CCHR and how the Church of Scientology financially and psychologically abuses its own members.


    Project Chanology is composed of an anonymous collective of global citizens who expose and stop the financial and psychological abuses committed by the Church of Scientology.

    That is going to be a bit of an issue for you.

    A refusal to grow ‘think skin’ has certain downsides. It will make you impervious to legitimate criticism (which the anon’s comments were), it will make you interpret comments expressing other views as insults (which the anon’s comments were not, and did include a useable press release in contribution of their criticism), it will make you angry and worked up and upset and otherwise cause you to divert energy into unproductive ranting on an internet forum against what you perceive as being undeserved slights.

    Being too full of oneself, trying to set the terms of debate (particularly attempting to bar anything that isn’t ‘constructive criticism’), bringing your claimed “professional writing background” to use a point scorer, etc. etc. are far far FAR more unconstructive than anything the anon in question said to you. People get trolled on this forum (although the anon in question genuinely wasn’t trolling), and it is part of the very make-up and culture of how WWP rolls.

    I know how this story goes, being played out here many times, and there are only two possible outcomes. The most common outcome is the loss of one’s unwarranted self-importance, and gaining the recognition and understanding that online productivity for a worthwhile goal supersedes any petty victimhood. A realisation that unfettered and raw debate will cut to the truth of things far faster than a show fake diplomacy. Coming through the ‘trial-by-fire’ and emerging stronger, almost like passing an initiation, is a rite of passage on WWP that many have passed and many more will pass.

    The other potential outcome is not so good, for anybody concerned. Learning to take the advice from what you would otherwise call a visceral comment is a necessary and valuable skill around here. Learn it.

  34. I thank the previous Anonymous poster for their emotional support.

    What the focus should be is:

    - How many people will be able to be at 788 King West at noon on Saturday? I'm bringing two other people and cops to protect us from "fair game." I also made sure some retired soldiers will be around in plainclothes as discreet bodyguards for us.

    - I have plenty of time to put up posters in spots all around downtown Toronto in legal places to post bills- to publicize our protest and spread the word about the CCHR. I can even have an 8.5 by 11 inch PNG file of an ad, ready to email and have printed, by tomorrow. My problem is, I'm so broke right now, I can't spare the $20 to print copies. Who in this thread can? I can then help put them up.

    - Who will be ready with hundreds of copies of fliers (anything with facts about the Co$ and CCHR will do) on Saturday?

    - At what periods will people be available and willing to protest outside of 788 from Saturday the 17th to the 30th?

    Answering those questions will help us prepare. Otherwise... we're unlikely to be ready or successful.
  35. Irishgal55 Member

    Hi I have a copy of these, will they be okay I an print out about 20 of each plus I have the Why We Wear Masks fliers about 45 of them.

    Every police force has its bailiwick. While I'm sure that local police would be inclined to give deference to the RCMP, I don't know if they would automatically give way if they were definitely standing in their own jurisdiction.

    Hey, we don't want to lose either of you, but we don't actually need RCMP blackup for a legal peaceful protest. (But I'd love to chat with him, and I probably know a thing or two.)
