I showed up at the Hollywood & Highland complex where I ran into one other protester. Scientology has the complex locked down tight with 2 private security companies walking the perimeter, in addition to the H & H security officers, a church P.I. and assorted staff & handlers.
Just as arrived at the complex, the skies opened up and we were slammed by a downpour. All week, us Angelenos have had to suffer from days of June gloom, cold days and finally the weekend brings us a hot sunny day... and a damn rainstorm.
I tried to engage PAC security chief Jason True into conversation.. he ignored me until I produced a sign. Jason then came down the stairs and told me I couldn't protest with signs or I'd be kicked out of the complex. I put the sign away. While trying to engage Jason in conversation, they lady guard ordered me to leave because I was harassing Jason. I ignored her while I continued having a civil conversation with him. She then called her supervisor over who hovered over me as Jason and I continued talking.
Later, as I walked around the complex filming, I was intently followed by 2 rent-a-cops who eventually asked me to stop filming Scientologists because they were complaining that I was intimidating them by doing so. I stopped.
I was on my way out of the complex and walking on Highland when I ran into Angry Gay Pope who was being followed by Tim Armer. Later, I saw security running down Hollywood Blvd and I followed to find a contingency of uniformed security, Scientology staffers and a church P.I. facing down Anon Orange and another protester with him.
I then saw Lynn Fountain Campbell who told me she had managed to get to the 5th floor before security escorted off the floor and off the property.
