“Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” at the Scientology Clubhouse, 839 Howard

Monday, May 18th, 2009

What’s that? You’ve missed out on seeing “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” at the Church of Scientology Clubhouse on 839 Howard betwixt 4th and 5th Streets? It’s just a stone’s throw from the American Psychiatric Association convention – let’s take a look.

Now this was the scene in front of the APA convention Saturday, when members of Anonymous protested against the Scientologists, who were protesting against the psychiatrists. Click to expand:

But then the action moved a block over. Can you see the building? It’s betwixt the AFL-CIO and our Buca Di Beppo.

And we’re in – nice hardwood flooring.

Uh oh, psychiatry takes a hit:

Here’s the pitch they might have used on Tom Cruise and about 10% of Hollywood. Click to expand (Frances Farmer, hello nurse.)

1. Collect receipt books.

2. ????

3. Profit!

See you there.

Photos From the Great Scientology Protest against Psychiatry in San Francisco

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

Who were you rooting for in this one? The cops, who had an easy, boring shift? The psychiatrists, who couldn’t really care less? The Scientologists, who bused people up from El Lay and over from Sacratomatoe? The Anonymous, many of whom appear to have personal connections to and detailed knowledge of the Church of Scientology?

You’d have to score this one as a win for the Anonymice. Small in number, but they got their point across. Let’s review.

The 470 Scientologists just before the march down Market Street. Today’s marchers generally weren’t locals. So in that way, the crowd was redolent of times when the the March for Lifers and the Chinese nationals of the infamous Olympic Torch relay fiasco bused to town and hung out around the Ferry Building:

But let’s start at the beginning. The Scilons had a marching permit and Anonymous did not. But that turned out to not matter too much. Members from both sides yacking with a patrolman:

Pointlessness. “You tape me, so I will tape you.” Hold pose for an hour and a half:

It was a hot one. A church member appearing to be upset about something or other. Black was the color of the day with the C.O.S. 

“Psychiatry: Drugging Kid$ For Profit”

“I’m Glad My Mom’s Not On Drugs.”

A member of Anonymous uses Church lingo to mock the less than desired turnout from those bused in. The 2000 figure for expected marchers comes from here

And also from Anonymous: “Google XENU.”

And there you have it.

470 Scientologists + Psych Convention + Anonymous + SFPD = Fun in the Sun

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

The Church of Scientology brought it today in a march from Justin Herman Plaza to Moscone Convention Center. Also involved were 20,000 souls at the American Psychiatric Association as well as the Group known as Anonymous.

A brief showdown in the SoMA. From left to right: a column of SFPD, Howard Street, 470 Scilons (capped with about 30 Anonymice at the far end), the shutterbugs, the shuttle buses, and then the amused shrinks on the right.

Anonymous dogged what some consider a multifacted transnational corporation at every turn. The March on Market: 

“CHANTS FOR MARCH”

And oh yes, the C.O.S. has a little clubhouse on Howard Street now. Stay tooned…
