Buddy: like crashing a party<> MarkVO: on the 4th of july, bob minton watched this video footage on the web and was horrified by what he saw <scuffle from 4th of july video> MarkVO: bob immediately announced plans to have a major picket in Los Angeles CA the following weekend in support of xenutv
0:41 Mark: hi, i have some friends coming in for the weekend. they wanted to get together and maybe take a tour, maybe a group of twenty for bob minton Scn: you want! Mark: bob minton is coming! bob minton is coming! Mark: folks gearing up for the weekend, weve got about 20 people coming in this weekend to protest on L Ron Hubbard way and down here Mark: bob minton and a bunch of us are coming in to protest Mark: see you tomorrow VO: then suddenly Mark: welcome to clearwater this is the home of the scifi cult founded by L Ron Hubbard called the church of scientology VO: at the last moment plans were changed
1:50 Bob: good evening hi how are Cop: <> Bob: bob minton yes yep thats right Cop:run a couple of things by you real quick. Cop: no trouble walking on the sidewalk and all but if theres any kind of <> or fire that won't be allowed. Bob: no there won't be any fire. Bob: there's no doubt these guys were informed of our arrival they've even got the windows papered over. they're totally non confront. maybe we'll just have to check them out down at the sandcastle and over at hacienda gardens
2:26 Bob: what i continue to be amazed at and certainly all the long term Scientologists who ever come here and participated in a picket is how y'know a very small, in this case a handful of people, can completely close this place down. i mean these people totally cower and hide from the truth. this is the nature of this organization
2:46 VO: it started out as a very quiet picket but here in the garage you can see ben shaw talking to the two guys who would eventually be sent out to handle us 2:54 Bob: mark, have you ever seen a church that has on its door "by invitation only"? Mark: the first time i saw this "by invitation only" sign was last december. they had never had it up before. that was a first. and i took a number of pictures last time of that sign because i was so flabberglasted to see that this is the way a so-called church tries to treat people 3:19 Mark: what happened to the tour that brian anderson offered to anyone who wanted to take a tour of the fort harrison hotel? Bob: well you can't very well have the public in when they see a sign like that can you
3:32 Bob: now what i've noticed is that there are flag busses that are going down court street there and their no doubt coming up the back so we might at one stage want to think about sending a small contingent to the back because as long as we're up front they're going to use the back
Bob: this appears to be a church in hiding. more like a morgue than a religious institution. its amazing even all the apartments have paper on the window.
Bob: why is Scientology ashamed of its religion? why are Scientologists ashamed? can you answer why Scientologists are ashamed? are you embarrased to be a Scientologist? 4:25 i still want to know how that woman knew i was going to be at the boston airport and took my picture. well when i arrived at logan aroport and went to the departure lounge i noticed this woman sitting there sort of hanging around the room with a Olympus digital camera which was just like mine - i would also point out that it looks just like the one that maureen okeefe former dsa of the boston org posesses
so i went over and sat about one feet away from her and asked how do you enjoy your Olympus camera? and she said "oh it's really new to me thats why i'm just sitting here standing around the room and looking", stuff like that. well then i noticed that she was focusing on me just one feet away 5:18 and then i heard the shutter go off once and then she said "well does the flash on this work well?" and i said "yes its quite adequate" and she popped up the flash she was pointing at me but not aiming 5:31 and all of a sudden the flash whent off and she said "oh i'm sorry i didn't meant to take your picture" and that was the second and last time that she took my picture and still, just before, and we talked more and i showed her some things about 5:45 the camera that she claimed not to know and just before i was getting on the plane i went to the mens room came back i walked to the gate and then i noticed she had moved from where she was sitting and she was sitting at the gate and as i wallked down the departure ramp she took my picture 5:58 yet again and that was the end of the story. but i think the message was that the cos no matter what want us to think that no matter what 6:11 we cannot do anything in secret because they will always know what our movements are. Mark: if you'd like a job with xenutv just let me know Bob: when you're working for xenutv your hands don't shake when your working for the cos i don't blame your hands for shaking because if you take one bad picture, waste any film you might be in big trouble 6:38 Bob: this is the presbyterian church where the candelight vigil was held last year and they've agreed to allow us to have the candelight vigil there again this year so that's good news 6:51
