    December 5th 2009 raids and vigils

    As all of you already know, December 5th is the day Lisa McPherson died on her way to the hospital from the Fort Harrison hotel in Clearwater. The story of her death helped galvanize the anti-Scientology movement and inspires many protesters to this day. Since December 5th falls on a Saturday this year, many cities are choosing to do their protests on this important date.

    Hamburg: MEGARAID
    The Hamburg Megaraid is running from the 3rd to the 6th of December. More than just a picket, Hamburg plans to use their Megaraid to help disseminate information about effective activism strategies, preserve material created as part of the anonymous movement, promote international cooperation, and party hard. Everyone is welcome. Check out for more information.

    Montreal: Regional Megaraid
    Can't make it to Hamburg? Montreal welcomes you! Quebec and Montreal anons have joined forces to put together a megaraid for eastern Canadian and US anons. 11 am on the corner of Papineau and Rachel, followed by a march to the org. Everyone is welcome.

    Boston: Raid and Vigil
    Boston will be holding our regular protest early for the month of December in honor of McPherson. The raid will take place at 11 am as normal, followed by a break for food and other activities, and then back to the org in the evening for a candlelight vigil. Anyone in the area is invited to come for either event.

    London: Raid
    For London anons who can't make it to Hamburg, they'll be meeting at Tottenham Crt Rd at 13:00.

    Nashville: Raid
    No time posted yet, keep an eye on for details.

    Los Angeles: Memorial
    No time posted, planning thread here

    San Jose: Raid
    Mountain View CA anons have chosen to do two raids this month, the first will be at the San Jose Org to promote awareness of McPherson's death, beginning at 11am. They intend to stick around until the winter wonderland event at 5 pm that night. Anyone in the area who is able to make it out for part of the day would be welcomed.

    Clearwater: Raid
    Clearwater will be holding a "frogger" themed raid for December in honor of the jerk who tried to hit one of them with a car in November. Guests are welcomed, but reminded to be extra paranoid as Clearwater is home to some crazy OSA. 10:30 am, latecomers should stick around as the group heads out for a quick march first thing.

    Oslo: Raid
    Oslo is going with a School's Closed theme because Will and Jada Smith are showing up. 11 am at Karl Johans gate. Remember that masks are not allowed in Norway.

    Perth: Raid
    March beginning at 1 pm and continuing in a circuit. Thread here:

    Belfast: Raid
    Starts at 12 pm at the mission. Check it out here

    Phoenix: Vigil
    Phoenix will be holding their McPherson Vigil on the evening of the 4th, 6:30 pm -10 pm. Thread here

    If your city is planning on a flash raid, full picket, vigil, or any other protest on December 5th, please post it here.

    Phoenix will be doing it again, however on the night of the 4th to coincide with the several thousands of public that walks past their parking lot stress booths and open house.

    Well, I'll be at the London raid.

    Here's an idea: At a set time, worldwide, we hold a minute silence for Lisa. It'll certainly get through to people.

    "Remember, remember, the 5th of December.
    The Crime that the Cult begot
    I see no good reason,
    Why Lisa McPherson
    Should ever be forgot."

    Clearwater's theme is frogger, but we will be memorializing Lisa and the others who died at Ft. Homicide. Well, if we're not all mowed down by OSA OSA OSA's Peter Mansell.

    Can OP add that to the info about C'water? Thanks.
