Moist for Justice: Anonymous in Bristol

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 August 2008

Continuing Martin’s adventures with Anonymous. Last Saturday the 8th was the second protest by the Bristol branch of Anonymous, attempting to cult-immunise the city. Ten protestors took part, some of whom commandeered a vessel yarrrr shipmates… erm, arrived by ferry. A walk around the city centre with flags, masks and placards prompted a lot of rubber-necking from passers-by, and some very cool photo opportunities. Photos and video below.

The cult, the cops and the very big nose

Posted by Martin Poulter on 23 May 2008

Via the Guardian, the Register and a bunch of other media outlets including BBC London local news (below), the story of how City of London Police are trying to ban the word “cult” from anti-Scientology protests. UPDATE: there will be no court hearing – Total failure for the cult of Scientology! More details below the fold.

Martin Poulter talks about Tom Cruise

Posted by Martin Poulter on 19 January 2008

Well, my brief appearance on Sky News this week (talking about Tom Cruise’s Scientology rant) has already made it to YouTube, thanks to the work of JAFAW and Arnie Lerma. To my amazement, it’s getting some good responses (“Dr. Martin Poulter truly rawks!!” “This one will cause CoS(UK) to go ballistic.” “PUNDITASTIC!”) as well as constructive criticism (yes, I do need to be more fluent and more assertive). More than 3,300 views in two days!

Meanwhile, the public relations disaster for Tom Cruise continues. Not only is the first video being parodied to Hell and back, but much more even scarier footage from the same event has been released. Slate magazine picks out some choice moments and explicitly compares it to Cold War propaganda. Gawker has some video excerpts: look at the final one where Cruise, wearing his new Freedom Medal of Valor, calls on the assembled Scientologists to “clean this place up”. “This place” refers to Planet Earth and along with war, crime and illness, they want it “clean” of any resistance to Scientology.
