I believe the culties are under instruction to avoid confronting the
critics and to engage in no comm and no exchange.  Today the ethics
officer, Dean Detheridge was trying very hard to avoid me, crossing
the road whenever I approached and not engaging in any conversation.
This is a definite turnaround from his usual "in your face" approach,
where covert invalidation and overt accusations are aired loudly.  He
has accused us of being criminals and child molesters in the past
(amongst other things) and yet today when I accused him of being a
robot he ran away yelling harassments.  HA HA, can't he see what a
hypocrite he is?

Lara Meany OSA also refused to talk to me, and after she had stood
around taking photos of us, ran away when I produced my camera.  We
are beginning to get together a collection of snaps taken of the
Scientologists RUNNING AWAY from the camera.  We might put up a
webpage and call it cowards corner.  When they wanted to take my photo
I stared straight at the lens and smiled.  Yes- it is my studied
opinion that only wogs can confront and communicate - the clams have
despite all that "tech" a remarkable tendency to do neither.

I was very pleased with this situation, because my goal in protesting
is to inform and warn the public, not to try and convert the Scios to
wogness.  By not having to deal with their ill informed time wasting
conversations I was able to hand out more flyers and talk to the very
supportive public.   

The protest was attended by Fier, Ms V(yes another critic joins our
ranks), Mr Smith(Goombaj), Mr B and yours truly, which gave us many
hands to give out flyers. 

We gave out close to 200 Lisa flyers.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend,
