    After an epic raid last September, where we out did ourselves and our expectations, and pushed past expectations of us by others, and did a great job of recruiting to the cause, we are going to hit back harder, and hope to get even more people this time.

    Do not disappoint us melbourne!

    Date: 17th of October 2009
    Location: Melbourne; Flinders Street Station (at the steps, just inside)
    Time: 12.00pm - 5.00pm
    Theme: Twas originally zombies (For a Why Are They Dead theme, but it seems not many people will do that)

    • 12:00pm Set up at Flinders St Station
    • Officially starts at roughly 12.30 (to give people time to arrive)
    • Step off at around 1:00pm
    • Bourke St Mall
    • State Library
    • Org (Crn Russell St & Flinders Ln)


    • 11 outside Krispy Kreme at Melbourne Central. (YES, MELBOURNE CENTRAL)
    • 11.30 move upstairs to meetoo

    Ok, the idea of zombifying for the raid is to show a few things. a "why are they dead" thing, and a "Scientology technically brainwashes people into walking zombies"

    People on Melbourne Anonymous Forum have stated that it's not a good idea to zombify as people might just come to dress up, and ignore any other thing.. and just act like douches instead of actually raiding..

    Also, it may scare people.. the zombie shuffle, while it did get good publicity and good public attention, actually scared off quite a few people. People were like "ugh, stay away"

    Please, remember:

    • Bring a mask of SOME FORM.
    • Get to know the material. Guide to raiding will be up soon on Melbourne Anonymous
    • Stay behaved
    • NO VIOLENCE - It will not be tollerated.
    • IGNORE Scientologists who will be taking photos of you, we always have one following us, an old lady, grey hair, with a walking stick and large hand bag. Please ignore her. If you are uncomfortable, please talk to me, SirAnon, Stroyer, or Rummy (you'll know who is who at the raid), and we will contact the police about it.

    I look forward to seeing you guys in October! :>
    Let's get to work.
