It got to me, that these people practice Fraud and misrepresentation right on my doorstep, so to speak, so I spontaneously decided to do a picket. Returning home (4 mins walk) I got the signs and leaflets, and my Mom wanted to come as well, waa hoo. She is really wonderful, and isn't afraid of the death stares or pneumonia, or anything else this cult uses in it's crusade to defraud the planet. Over 62 years young and still going strong! Together we wandered the street, handing out what leaflets we had lying around - Some Lisa flyers, Space Alien $cam and some other one. We each had a sign, and these will appear in the numerous photographs taken, which will be put on the websites: http://members.dynamite.com.au/eclipse and http://thingy.apana.au/~fun/scn soon. The 2 Sea Ogres were very nice girls, young, uniformed and pretty. I did get to say a few words with one - mainly to request she look on the web for the truth, and that the church isn't going to let her know what's really going on. One great older gentleman found it amazing and an excellent example of Democracy and free speech, that the Church of Scientologists and the demonstrators were getting along reasonably well, and handing out leaflets beside each other. I never thought of it that way, and it was a good example of our free country. Together, we were congratulated ' good work for doing something about them' or 'well done, keep it up' a wonderful 8 or 10 times. It was excellent. Many people declined the Ronbot leaflets but requested ours, that is also uplifting. And the OSA continues to ask me WHY DO YOU DO THIS? Well, she will learn one day - perhaps when she listens to what we have been saying, over and over. We picketed from 3:15pm until 4pm, when we ran out of leaflets and called it a day. Not a single raw Meat(tm) entered the cult HQ during the picket, but scores of them found out something they didn't know about this criminally convicted scam in their midst. I enjoyed the picket, and so did my Mother, who, when asked by a Ronbot "How long are you down here (Canberra) for?" She replied "As long as it takes." Stay tuned for future Exposing actions from me and the local SP committee.
