Take this for what it is worth. Right now, it is a "rumor", nothing more.
A West Coast source told me that the Church of Scientology is pulling strings (and calling favors) to try to get Anon declared a "Terrorist Organization", and a "Hate Group".
I trust my source 100%. But you do not know me, nor my source. Fair enough.
This is the advice that I was offered.
a) to date, Sci's have attacked Anons. No record of an Anon attacking physically, a Sci. We must make sure we NEVER have physical contact with a Sci that could be questionable. Therefore, we must make sure that at raids, we are in pairs, and that several cameras be on everything that we do. The individuals members of the CofS have been given a nod to be more "aggressive" to indicate that they are "protecting themselves".
b) personal (verbal) attacks on individual Sci's kept to a minimum. Unless in a larger group, and part of the general noise. This will avoid "stalking" charges, and the ability for individuals (Sci) to get restraining orders.
c) avoid any racial, or gender based name-calling.
d) attacking the Tech, or LRH is fine. But saying "Only a shithead could believe this crap", especially if she is a female (and alone) could be seen as "intimidation". If your going to do it, be careful, make sure it's not going to look bad on film.
e)there must be NO destruction of Sci property. They may destroy something of their own & claim Anons are doing it, but if even ONE Anon is seen doing something, more weight will be given to Sci complaints.
f) word is already out that Officials (like the FBI) are investigating abuses by the Cult. They are trying to make that knife cut both ways. THAT is why they are spending a lot of time trying to identifying individual Anons as "leaders".
Now, I know you Guys already know this stuff. But I feel I would be remiss if I did not mention what I was told, and the "specifics".
The Cult really is scared, and cracks have formed.
Oh, yes, and I was told again " We must report anything and everything to local authorities and the FBI." No matter how trivial.
Just a bit of info.....take it for what it is worth.
REMEMBER THE LIVING, FIGHT FOR THE DEAD
