Maybe the Church of Scientology found the “tech” to create the permit problem and inclement weather that forced Anonymous members to cancel this weekend’s scheduled protest. Doubtful. Protestors learned that the New York Police Department did not issue a permit for their monthly event on West 46th Street anyway, most likely because the street was closed off to vehicular traffic due to construction. Anons then huddled under umbrellas in Bryant Park to rethink the day, but ultimately realized that it would be futile to pass out fliers in the downpour. They hope to gain a permit for next Saturday, November 15th.
