    Why do you still protest?

    Just out of curiosity, how many of you still protest? Why do you protest? And what motivates you to keep protesting after two and a half years, or however long you've been protesting against Scientology?

    For me, it seems rather difficult to stay interested after a while. It just simply got boring, for the most part, and I feel like I should be doing something better with my life. I can understand big events where DM might be present, but the average protest against Scientology just seems like a tired old routine and I've simply lost interest.

    So, what about you?

    Getting bored with it doesn't end the cruel reign of $cientology.

    Re: Why do you still protest?

    Most anonymous protesters gave up after 5-6 protests.

    The rest well youtube will fill you in if they are boring or not.

    Plenty of other stuff can be done:p

    You are why.
    You are the reason I'm still here, and will still be in it far past the point of care and strength.
    It is because Scientology needs to stop, and because your voice is not mine.
    I'm here for you, and will be hanging on until there's no 'here' left to hang.

    Somebody's got to clean up the mess...

    Srsly, the last few raids in Cincinnati have been met with blackout curtains. What other 'religion' is so afraid that its hold on its members is so weak that a few protesters will dissuade them from continuing to follow? It's the mind control efforts of the cult that disturb me, the lying and half truths that get passed on as trufact. We witnessed the lies being told cult members first-hand this month when a scilon woman almost lost control and screamed at us that we were violating a restraining order by being on the sidewalk in front of the org. There is no such order...

    Did she call the police? 'Cuz that's the best thing to do in those situations....

    Who was the intended audience? Anons, or Scientologists hiding inside?

    "For me, it seems rather difficult to stay interested after a while"

    I guess everyone fights for different reasons.
    But it sounds like you were fighting for the wrong reasons?

    My reason for fighting is to help people who can't help themselves, especially the Sea Orgers. And I really can't stand the fact that COS has been getting over on people and hurting people in every capacity since it's start.

    I fight against a criminal organization that should not be allowed to hurt people financially, mentally, and physically.

    This criminal organization should be forced to pay back taxes owed world wide and I would like to say reform itself from top to bottom. But in keeping with Hubbard's written policies, and the fact that Hubbard created the Sea Org for slave labor purposes, I don't see how reform would be at all possible and work.

    To totally reform COS, they would have to go against a hell of alot of Hubbard's policies and they would not be able to operate it's vast empire of suppression. So therefore it should end completley. IMO

    Unless of course they decide to go against Hubbard's policies completely. But then they would never be able to afford all the properites they maintain, get materials printed and ciruclated, or keep their members in once they were able to read what they are not allowed to before. Thus finding out what a fraud Hubbard was, free to read the OT levels online and about all the human rights abuses that have been taking place. I just don't feel reform would work.

    AND I also stand behind my signature below by Martin Luther King.

    I'm not going anywhere until this scam cult is closed up for good.
    That includes the front groups too.

    If you're tired protesting, put up your feet and send out e-mails and snail mails.

    Re: Why do you still protest?

    OP, thank-you for a thread that gives me an opportunity to say, "thank-you" to my fellow Anons -- the most creative bunch of folks I've ever known!

    I admire every anon, but those working the "front lines" of protest get my profound respect. It is not easy to sacrifice personal time to get out there, whether it's your first protest or your fortieth. You guys are incredibly creative and your impact is enormous. Solo raids, sign-on-stick, infiltration, cake, dancing, you found the card, ghandi-tech -- your ingenuity is endless and astonishingly effective!

    We all need a break when we run out of steam, but look at what's been accomplished! What anons have achieved is truly staggering. Motivated by nothing more than a mutual desire to do some good, this small group of ad hoc volunteers dubbed "Anonymous" has wrought tangible change and helped people, across the globe. This has never happened before, in the whole of history!

    If that sounds gratuitous or overly dramatic, so be it. It is true. Long after this cult is defanged, I hope every Anon looks back with satisfaction at being part of something powerful and radically new that has genuinely helped others.

    My sincere thanks to every anon. And of course, "finish the fight!" :)

    Not trolling. Just trying to invoke a discussion out of my own curiosity. Scientology, as a topic, still interests me enough to follow along. I just feel like protesting has lost its power and isn't as much needed anymore, at least not while the ball is already rolling. Just imo, but I'm not trying to force my opinion on others. That's why I decided I would start a topic to see how others feel about still IRL protesting.
  22. Re: Why do you still protest?

    Between 2001 and 2008 the number of Scilons in the United States possibly halved, that’s the most likely result though the stats are uncertain. Let’s see if Anon can get them to haemorrhage members Faster!

    Re: Why do you still protest?

    I protest because I want people to research Scientology and see what it really is. A lot of people have previously ignored it, but now that Anonymous is raging and celebrity Scientologists are fucking shit up, people are paying attention. I want them to see that there are people who aren't afraid of the Scientologists so that they might also join the cause whether or not they show up at protests.

    I also really like pissing the Scientologists off. Every time they flip us the bird, throw things at us, glare at us from their stoop or yell insults, I get happy. Only people who feel truly threatened (not out of fear of bodily harm) do that sort of shit.

    I also like the people I protest with. I love all of our current Nashanons. We have a ton of fun, and without the protests, I wouldn't have met the two people who live with me now. There seriously would not have been any overlap ever. It's a wonderful community.

    But mostly I just want to continue pissing off Scientology because they're like a dangerous animal that's been declawed and defanged.

    Re: Why do you still protest?

    I got pissed off in the 90's when they tried to take over the tubes the first time around.

    Now, I get a lulzy buzz out of watching the slow demise of something that looks like an 'evil organisation' straight out of Bond (or more realistically, Austin Powers) at the hands of 9001 internet geeks. Especially the footbullets.

    And I hope for some oblique humour when, after success, the media suddenly has to try and work out how we actually pulled it off.

    Really I don't give a rats arse about most culties, except the young'uns. But encouraging culties to blow is a very good way to inflict damage on the cult. Unfortunately, not many opportunities for that locally, so I mostly focus on other ways to ping them.

    Unlike many (I suspect), I'm quite happy with 'slow burning lulz' and find the whole project utterly hilarious in my own (normally) quiet way.

    And stopping folks joining them, and new victims being created, addresses my moralfag leanings.

    I promised my dying scilon father I would outlive his cult.

    And I mean to.
  27. Re: Why do you still protest?

    If it has lost it's power why are they putting blinds up in all the orgs during protests? Why are OSA still photographing us? Why have they just started hiring security guards in Australia while the protests are on? Why does BFG say that since the protests there are less OSA spies tailing him because they don't have the resources?

    It works. It helps. It's not over.

    It's not like before Anon. Just four of us and a dog. A stuffed dog. And we didn't have the stuffed dog every time.

    Now, it's fun :)

    Co$ is evil. Co$ hurts people, destroys their sanity, their lives, their family relationships, their unborn children, their hard earned bank accounts, their freedom.

    Putting on a mask, making up a silly name and fighting crime hasn't got boring yet.
    When it does, I'll still keep doing it because it's the right thing to do.

    Why? Here's a couple of reasons . . .

  37. Anonymous Member

    Re: Why do you still protest?

    The lulz.
    The cake.
    Be a part of it.
    Make some "bad" things for a good reason.
    For the people who lost her life for a fucking cult.
    To show the world that made a revolution will be a funny thing.
    If you wanna end a ugly thing, you must begin a joke.
    This is why.

    I still protest because Kaja Bordevich Ballo is still dead: killed by the evil cult of Scientology.

    Those who 'still protest' are better informed and more dedicated than the early 2008 set. They're also far more effective, and the public understand and appreciate what they're doing. If you're a cultist and you think that a reduction in the numbers appearing at monthly protests indicates that you're 'winning'... look at your own numbers. Bye.

    For the same reason I do everything else I do because it is the right thing to do.

    And for the lulz. :D
