There was a small, $cientology exposing demonstration outside their
indoctrination centre today, for about 90 minutes.      

        Around 5 critics of the cult walked around Civic, handing out
about 200 Lisa flyers in the warm and windy summer heat.  We had 2
signs among us, pointing out the fraudulent scam aspect of this
foolishly recognised religion.

        Although 2 Ronbots were sent out to counter-leaflet, they
studiously avoided our vicinity, walked away from us when we
approached, and spoke not, lest our SP vibration cause them to awaken.
L Ron Hubbard does not want them to awaken...he maintains an iron grip
on their thoughts, impeding the scientologist's analytical mind.
Why can't they see the contradictions in their holy and worshipped
texts?  I don't really know, but we can point them out and one day a
$cientologist might notice.

One thing I would like to Highlight, is $cientology is hostile to the
truth.    $cientology has a good scam going, and does not want it's
own criminal history and fraudulent basis to be exposed.  Such is the
fervour instilled by the criminal syndicate of $cientology into it's
deluded believers that on occasion they will "mock up" false
allegations against lawful critics, to get the demonstrations to stop.

Such an event was tried  recently, a local $cientologist attempted to
get a restraining order on me, to stop me from attending the pickets.
The basis of it was false, and weak, a temporary injunction was not
approved.  Instead a court hearing was scheduled ...but over 3 months
down the track.  This allowed plenty of pickets until then, and
because the Ronbots application was withdrawn 2 days ago, it allows
plenty more pickets in the future.  3 Cheers for Free Speech!!
The fact is, that $cientology policy STILL demands that the legal
system be used to harass...intimidate and if possible "of course"
destroy them [critics] utterly.

Uh, if I got off the track from describing the picket, it's because
.. not a vast amount to report on there.  I enjoyed it, as I believe
the others did, but the E.D. was not amused ...
"If you talk to me..thats harrassment.." he says quickly, while
hauling his Thetan rapidly up into the Org.

        The OSA lady was as usual out today with her camera...just
loves us all so much, she wants to be with us all the time see :)
Perhaps the others can add something.
