I was not informed by the ISC or WSS that there would be protests in California this year. There were buses to get the few protesters there; I ended up finding out about 2 days before the Los Angeles protests, but found no where to stay, and couldn’t afford accommodations. The first person tells me she will tell me where I am sleeping on the 24th when I check in at the registration desk on the 25th. The second email, is from the same AD that ran the botched Shugden empowerment, where my family was harassed. She told me, a few hours before I could have boarded the train, that there was no place to stay. I could have left my daughter with a neighbor, or taken her with; every time I asked for housing later, for NKT events (separate organization) the same woman would tell me that they are full. In the normal duplicitious way of these sorts, the AD gave me an ex-post facto rule about kids not being able to stay in international temples, though it was a full year of back and forth emails about accommodations, in which she never indicates any such rule.
Two emails detailing interference run by ISC to keep me from coming to the California protests, after I found out about them from DorjeShugden.com:

Hi Lingpur— I and my daughter will be coming up tonight— so I am not sure how to find out where we are staying? My understanding is the registration table is tomorrow? Also we would need to get to the accommodation; we can take public transport if it is close by.
