I fail at protesting. :3

Well, I headed for the DC Raid on Co$ today, but I was late and got there after all the excitement had passed. I did get some good pix, which I'll post tomorrow once I figure out whether I want to screw around with the galleries on LJ (which suck) or stick them on my personal Geocities site, or start keeping them on Flickr or Picasa or something. Good turnout, ~100+ folks, a cake table in memory of Lisa McPherson, and badly spooked Co$ handlers. We're going to do it again in March, too.

Unlike other friends of Anonymous, though, I'm not hiding my face. What's the Co$ going to do, sue me? I'm broke already. Smear my reputation? I ran an anime convention, FFS. I have no reputation to speak of, and most of my friends think the Co$ is shit anyway. So I'll be writing some letters, causing chaos, rocking like Amadeus, and bringing the pain. Once upon a time, I held up my hand and swore to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and I don't recall any fine print about the oath expiring when I took off the uniform. Since I'm too fat and sick to take on the foreigners, I think I'll get in a few licks at the Scientologists. Besides, any harassment they direct my way will be problems not inflicted on somebody younger/less able to deal with it.

Game on, bitches.

UPDATE: INTERNATIONAL EPIC WIN. Photos and video of raids around the world. HAIL XENU!

Took a look at the links--some pretty amazing stuff!

I'm reminded of something I learned in ACT-UP. Before a protest figure out what you want to say if interviewed, then reduced it down to 25 words. I'll be the first to admit that this is pretty much turning yourself into a sound bite, but I've always been a fan of concision...

I think it's also sad that people these days seem to respond better to sound bites than to extended reasoned arguments, but we're a now a nation of ADD types, apparently.
