The Summer of Lulz climaxed in all it's delicious glory yesterday with the latest global protest against the destructive cult practices of organized scientology. Hordes of masked and unmasked Anonymous protesters and concerned citizens once again joined forces with Ex-scientologists, Former members raised in the cult and Old Guard critics to raise worldwide public awareness.
The August 16th demonstrations were tentatively planned for over 130 cities around the globe, with post-game reports for 81 cities being recorded on the centralized forum at Enturbulation.org as of 24 hours after the close of typical protesting timeframe on the USA West coast.
This month's theme was a diversified grab bag of various concepts that was orchestrated differently in various locations. Many anons marched the pure lulz path of either a second installment of Operation Party Hard or under the guise of Chanology Reclamation Project for unifying moar with our roots and remembering the true spirit of where the movement started. Other anons embraced Operation Cult Fiction, which included a smorgasboard of smaller topics related to the ever growing list of scientology lies. While other regional cells winged it with Operation Push Button Receive Bacon, or embraced their own localized themes in tune with other local events. The diversity in topics targeted in different areas was rather refreshing and offered a little bit of everything for everybody, just like the diversity found within multitudes of scientology's crimes.
The biggest buzz following this month's global picket is by far the Tommy Gorman in San Francisco incident. Gorman was assaulted and a scilon was arrested, with the added twist of local police officer informing Tommy that there was an Assistant District Attorney inside the org seemingly offering legal counsel to the attacker on how best to counter the arrest with the inappropriate lawfare retailation that organized scientology is already infamous known for, and a nice dose of political corruption thown in on the side. The following vid tells the sordid tale of this event.
