Past Global Protests

May 9th, 2009

It was a rainy day in Pizzaville downtown T.O. when Anonymous gathered to protest the Org...

We had about 12 Anons in total show up. Some newer "faces" brought a lot of enthusiasm, and that was much appreciated.

Edmund Yee closed the curtains on their beautiful Dianetics display pretty soon after we showed up. Yvette Shank has a new red and white umbrella, but the same old trolly scowl.

A lot of great comments from passersby. One girl stopped to tell us she had a friend in university who was making a documentary about Scientology, and it ended up become a documentary of Scientology harassing him because he was making a documentary. Lolz. Foot bullet, as always.

It was beautiful weather today, two groups handed out flyers; one group across St. Mary and the other directly across from the Org on Yonge.

Approx. 20 Anon in total, most of which were new.

A little over 1000 flyers handed out.

March 14, 2009

We had two small groups enturbulating; one across St. Mary and one directly across from the Org on Yonge. 10-12 Anons in total for most of the day.

A lot more people we stopping to talk to us since the weather was quite beautiful today. A lot more flyers were handed out too.

Cake was had. When will the scilons learn that blasting classical music won't silence us?

Come on guys! We can do a hell of a lot better than that! At least we got them to shut the blinds. Also, delicious cake

December 13th, 2008 - Operation: Snow White Christmas

It was a cold, but very good day for enturbulation. About 18 anons showed up with signs and a tonne of flyers.

The spectacular Canadanon flag made its return, only to get molested. Video forthcoming. There were a couple discussions about Greg (TorontoSP) and whether or not anyone has heard from him. No one seems to know and some people are worried. If anyone has any information... halp?

In short, we had truffles, candy canes and pizza. They had lies, more lies, and a train set.

Good job everyone. Thanks for coming out!

November 8th, 2008

Today, despite attendance woes, we had a good day and saw some neat stuff.

The Scieno PSYCHIATRY: INDUSTRY OF DEATH Van rolled up to the front of the org. NIN kid and some other young Scienos were loading it up, probably for the IAS event tonight at the MCC.

The IAS guys who were in town were walking up and down the street with their IAS jackets on, looking pretty low on the tone scale, to be honest.

As usual we got lots of nice comments. One gentleman stopped in the park where we were waiting before the raid started to commend us for what we were doing. He said he had been involved in protesting the CoS back in the 90s and was happy to see young people carrying on.

Report

Today was good! We had ~30-40 Anons enturbulating away near the org. A good handful of new 'faces' too, which was good to see. We expected rain, and were fortunate enough to escape it for quite some time until a good bit after the end of our five hour protest.

Very friendly police, very receptive public. Not even "fight the catholic church" guy showed up, however some "angry people" kept pestering the police who shrugged them off since we had a permit.

We kept very busy, but we made time to party hard without having to deal with much channery other than the new-fangled "row row fight the powah".

Thanks everyone who came out! Hope to see you again soon!

Other observations:

That one supremely nice cop was the nicest cop we've ever had, I think.

Note: TC has a new hair colour, but the same permanent scowl on her face.

Report

  • WhyWeProtest.net forum thread
  • In related news, Kitchener Org fails to show up for our protest. Has it folded? Rumour has it that it has downsized into someone's basement! Also, Las Vegas Org was a no-show. Do I see a trend here?

June 14th, 2008 - Operation: Sea Arrrgh!

Post-raid thread at Enturbulation.org

Verdict: Epic Win!

Scoreboard: Anonymous: 5 Scientology: 0

Report:

The Raid started at 11AM with Anonymous once again returning to the west side on Yonge street for some close up enturbulation. Toronto police gave us free reign over St. Mary street, allowing us to protest in view of all org entrances, and forcing the sea org to use the back alleys to sneak in the rear doors.

Attendance peaked at 75 anon, understandable given the summer holidays. Spirits were high thanks to cake, cookies, flags, music, and a whole lot of kareoke. Highlights included pirate dancing, epic duels, a naked cyclist parade (granny tits ftw), and a visit from Nan Mclean an OG critic.

May 10th, 2008 - Operation: Fair Game Stop

Poster for OPERATION: Fair Game Stop, available here

Verdict: Epic Win!

Scoreboard: Anonymous: 4 Scientology: 0

The raid kicked off at 11AM with very exciting news: Toronto police were allowing Anons to return to the west side of Yonge street! We were given full use of St. Mary street including the South side allowing us to protest right in front of the org. The east side of Yonge was also open for spill over. Pressure from the local business association allowed us to setup in front of the Co$ rather than disrupting the shops along Yonge; don't piss off your neighbours Scientology.

Attendance peaked at 125 Anons. Somewhat expected considering the raid coincided with exam week for many students or the start of their summer holiday. However the smaller group was much more effective in this new position, as it allowed us to cover all entrances to the org.

Sidewalk chalk was used extensively after permission was given by the police. Anons wrote website URLs and other informative messages. The entire sidewalk was covered by the end of the day, leaving an extensive cleanup for the Sea Org. The weather was perfect, epic flags, music, and delicious caek and pizza kept spirits high.

Anons began to disperse around 3pm in accordance with the notice of demonstration, leaving only the massive chalk mural.

Despite the smaller turnout it was a major victory, which will set the stage for future epic days.

100% peaceful! For archival data, see the Operation: Fair Game Stop planning page.

April 12th, 2008 - Operation: Reconnect

Verdict: Epic Win!

For Operation Reconnect we secured a permit for the protest, this allowed the protest to go on but with much less police. It began about 11AM and at first it looked like a possible fail. There were only a few dozen people there with signs that were already getting wet. Around 40 minutes later we started receiving /b/lackup and the news reporters started arriving. By 12:30 we reached 150 people who didn't mind getting buffeted by the wind and rain. This is when the Angry Window Guy started yelling at us to be quiet. After him failing to achieve any success he went back inside his home and tried to ignore us.

At 1PM the Sysco truck once again made an appearance, a chant for "Potatoes" soon followed. When the truck left we could finally see the boarded up windows and abandoned lobby of the org again. The protest continued strong until 3PM when it officially ended. Everyone left and went home and pat themselves on the back for a job well done.

At this protest we got more public attention then any other protest. A lot of fliers were given out, and we received numerous honks.

Old March 15th, 2008 Planning Page

11:00 AM, ~70 Anons march from Dundas Square 1.5km north to Co$ under heavy police bloi CRM now. Epic music and awesome flags contributed to win.

11:15 Dundas Brigade joins Anons at Co$ for a combined force of 200+. Heavy Police presence, approximately 30+ officers as compared with the dozen or so on Feb 10, Crowd Control horses as well. Protesters were restricted to the opposite side of the street, and a lane of traffic was blocked off to provide a buffer zone. Scienos put paper over their windows and hid inside, using windows on upper floors of buildings to tape us.

1:25 PM- A Sysco truck parks in front of the building to deliver a mysterious shipment. The truck leaves about 20 minutes later. We thought the boxes contained documents but we kept our distance due to police. Photographs and phonecalls later revealed the delivery to be a shippment of over 4000 eggs, as well as several boxes of oranges. I guess they buy their eggs annually?

Raid went strong through to 5pm, estimated attendance at ~300 peak. Unfortunately, there was no cake, just some donuts. No violence, no problems with police except that they refused to dance to "YMCA" with us.

Extra win: Wikipedia's Featured Article of March 15, 2008 was about South Park's episode satirizing Scientology!

Deluxe extra win: Wise Hat Man says CoS Toronto only has ~250 members, so we outnumbered them!

March 15th Wrap-Up

Martini Drinker: You forgot your flag afterwards. It is being held by someone who lives in a pineapple under the sea. They will bring it to the next protest if you can't get a hold of them beforehand to get a hold of it. You should be able to contact them via Enturbulation, IRC, or through the tubes.

Read the Global Anonymous Speech said at the protest.

Unmentioned Trolls: 420Chan Troll harassing people exiting the picket via the subway. Merely yelled profanities, nothing really intelligable and was probably jealous because no one lurks on his site. Baaaaaaaaawww!

Trouble Makers
There were a few troublemakers, but overall nothing bad happened, which is great. The troublemakers are identified in the new troublemakers section. Be on the lookout for these people during the next protest. Keep your distance and point them out to police if anything happens.
