What did we learn? I think it might be important to start taking notes even now as to worked and what didn't work. This is Anonymous baptism by fire, as most of us (I think) have never done this before, and certainly not in the mannar that it has been organized now. But from this, we can only get stronger and our next step will be even more Epic. All you guys and gals who were out there could see for yourself how it went, so lets hear it! .. The one that sticks out immediatly to me is the one from Vienna; Check your protest permits and keep one with you when you go, in case the police loses it (intentionally or otherwise) and Plan to be out longer so that your permit doesn't run out earlier than you intend to be there. Know your rights. Have it in writing. - sunday morning is dead, but tends to liven up around lunch. - someone should prepare a short speech. Speeches is a grand idea! It helps morale, attracts the attention of people passing and unnerves the enemy. If you have ex-scienos on site or happen to be lucky enough to have WMB or Tory with you, see if they want to speak. - bullhorn would have been good (But check the legality. And just because you have a megaphone doesn't mean you have to use it) Scientology counter-protests: learned from berlin and possibly other locations: - be prepared for scifag counter-demonstrations and -activities. Do your homework, make sure you get things right. Probably helps to have a fact-sheet with important dates on you, I guess. and: Stay to to the truth. Even a half-truth is bad, as it gives the scienones something to use against us; they have commited enough crimes already, we don't need to make any up. The white/V-masks and the suits where great. Keep them as a visual elements of the piquets, so everyone in future will recognize the piquet was organized by anonymous. Some were intimidating by them, but mostly it seem like they attracted interest and curiosity. Plan more beforehand: chants, songs, more music, better sign ideas, and a plan for protesting in shifts/getting warm and coming back would've all been great additions. Have a plan / extra signs ready in case your protest is dampened by idiots who are in it for the lulz. Consider organising a medic; that is, get someone to wear a red cross type armband and/or hat and to carry a range of goods that might come in handy. For the northern hemisphere - chemical warming pads, thermal blanket? Water, some sugary snacks. For the southern hemisphere - sunscreen, water with Oral Rehydration Salts mixed in etc. Blister plasters and so-on also handy. If nothing else: The Church of Scientology does not care much about their own. We must set the example, and be willing to aid our fellow Anonymous when in need. Bring extra bottles of water, a first aid-kit if you got it. Snacks. I've seen suggestions for disposable rain-coats. Anything you want to bring. Just don't go broke, though. :wink: Rickrolling them works so well. ...on multiple levels... Less taunting: we aren't attacking their belief, but calling them out for their crimes. Direct attacks on scientology's belief system (lol xenu) and "Honk if you hate Scientology" and "Alien Ghosts, LOL" doesn't get that credible (although I've seen plenty of really good 'honk if' signs!) We're here to educate the general public about scientology. Furthermore, harassing the same scientologists over and over again doesn't do anything, and makes us look like dicks. Don't be a dick. March around the city; talk to people; provide an authoritative, informed, and respectful introduction to the dangers of Scientology. SIGNS! "Double-sided signs. Can't stress that enough. Because your back AND front get on video too." Unclear picket signs are bad. Make sure your sign is obviously against Scientology and their crimes. Edit: Updating OP with all the good ideas. Sorry for the messy copy-pasta post, I'm at work and trying to sneak this in while my boss is looking the other way. More to come.
