I went down last night [Nov 28] concerned that there would be pepper spray and particularly when I saw the police cars parked a block away and then the amount of police on duty! Then the crowd. Then I got up inside the crowd and there were these wonderful little tents! It was brilliant. I saw Mike Garcia in a suit (upgrading the face of Occupy) and being articulate being interviewed by KUSI. The whole idea was brilliant. This is the kind of creativity that is going to keep Occupy growing. It is important that Occupy present the most respectful face possible toward the use of the Civic Center and not create a huge mess that can be used as a focus to downgrade the real issues: JOBS NOT CUTS MAKE WALL STREET PAY The homeless paraphernalia in the middle of Civic Center is unsightly. On the other hand it is such a travesty that SD has 9,000 homeless and growing. We could actually embrace the spectacle and acknowledge they are of the 99%. And more coming if Soc. Sec. and medicare are cut. The smoking in the crowd is ongoing and unpleasant. (choke choke) I may take on posting little signs: Thank you for not smoking in the crowd. Cans of sands are needed to handle the butts. When I arrived on Sunday there was a HUGE pile of TRASH accumulated on the sidewalk. The story was that "the CITY wouldn't pick it up." The Women of Occupy SD were meeting. I asked among our group if anyone had a truck. A call was made to someone's friend in Ramona. Within the hour the trash was being loaded. We can encourage people to provide plastic bags and haul away a bag of trash when they come down. Things are getting done and I do not know who to thank. This leaderless movement is fluid and wonderful. With no specific strategies, it is more difficult for the adversaries to mount a counter strategy. They do not know what to do with it. And it impresses the point that this is Americans across the country not an organization. I think that makes it scarier to them. Who do they wiretap? Removing money from BIG banks and giving jobs to Americans by shopping for American made products this Christmas are things that are make a difference right NOW. A list of companies that employ Americans and do not outsource would be useful to post. Technology makes it possible for us to act in unison across the nation. That makes an impact. It is SEEN and it is FELT. Gets them where they live--in their pockets. Maybe we will see the end of war. What a lot of money that will free up and what a lot of suffering will be spared the wounded and the friends and families of the lost and/or wounded. I have hope through the next generation.
