NEWS

  • Jury Trial for Randy Wolling, AKA "Sage" -- HUNG JURY.
    • Now awaiting DA's City Attorney decision on whether to retry the case all over again!
    • Sage was sitting on the sidewalk after the second raid. He is charged with impeding an officer, and illegal assembly.
    • He has been in jail since Oct 28, over a month due to two other previous charges outstanding: meditating on Blacks Beach and being on Blacks Beach before 6am.
    • The SD Sheriff Who's In Jail website lists his next court date as Dec. 6 at 1:30 pm
    • I can't believe they are wasting their time and money on this. No wonder our government is low on money.
    • Any more details would be appreciated
  • Hunger Strike -- John Kenney continues his hunger strike, now in day 25. He is requesting that the City come to the table and discuss the right of Occupy San Diego to conduct protests in the form of an encampment. John is now sick and I am starting to worry about his health.
    • John now has a wheelchair to help him get around, as at this point as he is feeling weak.
    • Join John and many of your fellow occupiers at the City Council meeting on Tuesday December 6 at 10 AM as we once again try to get Occupy San Diego on the agenda.
    • Meet on Monday, December 5th at 4:30 PM to strategize how to best effectively use the three minute per item rule during non agenda comments.
  • Get the word out
    • We have several events that we need your help in promoting, including the the West Coast Port Shutdown, the 1st Annual OSD Occupajama Party and Protest, Occupy SD benefit concert at The Ruby Room, the Candlelight Vigil & Silent March for the Unemployed, and, of course, our weekly Teach-In Sunday at Freedom Square.
    • Tell your friends either in person, through tweeting a link on Twitter (remember to include #osd, #occupysandiego, and/or #occupysd), confirm you are attending on a Facebook event, reblog on Tumblr, or just print out some flyers and pass them out to your friends, loved-ones, acquaintances, as well as those who will soon fall into one of those categories once you give them a flyer.
    • See Occupy San Diego Events for more details of particular events

Despite what you might hear on the corporate-owned news:
  • The occupation continues, around the clock.
  • PLEASE COME DOWN when you can and help with numbers. This is your true vote. Stay at home = vote against 99%.
  • Tents and almost everything is now being restricted by the police.
  • Food is needed -- we no longer have a food table, so you'll have to play it by ear.
  • We will not be denied our constitutional right to assemble and speak!
  • Many Teach-ins on Sunday!

Legal Actions
* (Temporary Restraining Order Federal court hearing of the TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) regarding Municipal Code 54.0110. Judge Hayes heard the oral arguments at 2:30pm on Tuesday, Nov 22.
  • NEW Decision was reached on Dec 1. Judge DENIED TRO
  • Court Documents -- Full Ruling
  • Attorney Bryan Pease could not attend in person because he just completed Lasik eye surgery. He attended by telephone but did not participate in the hearing.
  • Attorney Todd Cardiff presented the arguments in favor of the restraining order.
    • The primary argument is that the law is vague and overly broad, and therefore subject to abuse. It outlaws anything on public property, even a coffee cup, and even if it is for free speech.
    • We are talking about the civic center plaza here, which is specifically set aside for free speech.
    • Quoted ACLU vs. City of Las Vegas
  • Asst City Attorney Kristin Black presented the defense for the City.
    • Said TRO is not required, because there is no imminent harm. She said the protests have been continuing with out disruption since Oct 7 and there is no infringement of freedom of speech. If this was a big concern, then this case should have been brought sooner.
    • She said that the law was only used when the plaza was cleared, because they did not want the protestors setting up their tents and gear while the square was being cleared. Of course we know this statement was far from being accurate.
    • She said they have not "precluded anyone from putting anything down." Maybe, but I know once it is put down, the police will threaten arrest if you don't pick it up.
  • Judge said he would consider all the arguments and release a written decision. Normally, these don't take very long.
  • If this Temporary Restraining Order is approved, we will return!
  • Attorney Todd Cardiff said he will be preparing an additional declaration regarding the impossibility of siting a voter registration table in the public portion of the plaza.
  • We STILL need video documentation of police hassling people about setting stuff down. If you have such a video, please contact us at osd-feedback@citizensoversight.org so I can get it to the right people.

  • Lutz suing Civic Center Plaza building owners and operators
    • Lutz arrested while engaging in the peaceful political activity of voter registration at Civic Center Plaza.
    • Owner/Operators of Civic Center Office Building include Goldman Sachs, hedge funds and Wall St. Banks -- a who's who of the criminal banking industry 0.1%
    • RayLutz has filed a lawsuit against the owners and operators of the Civic Center Plaza building, that invoked the citizens arrest.
      • Press conference held Nov 30 at 5pm to announce the lawsuit.
      • Attorney Michael Aguirre will handle the case on contingency basis, but we still will need to fund-raise for court costs and fees, for war chest and defense fund.
      • Fundraising will be set up shortly separate from OSD funds.
      • I daresay they will be very sorry they stepped over this line.
      • Read the text of the complaint by Lutz against CBRE
    • The ACLU is considering taking up a case to test Pruneyard for the case like what we have in San Diego: The public square where part of it is owned by a private party, and the fact that voters who were registering were not allowed to complete their registrations.

  • U.N. Envoy: U.S. Isn't Protecting Occupy Protesters' Rights "One of the principles is proportionality," La Rue said. "The use of police force is legitimate to maintain public order -- but there has to be a danger of real harm, a clear and present danger. And second, there has to be a proportionality of the force employed to prevent a real danger."

  • Occupy UC Davis protesters adopt resolution calling for break with Democratic Party On Tuesday evening, the general assembly of Occupy UC Davis passed a resolution denouncing the attack on UC Davis students and calling for a break with the Democratic Party and construction of an independent social and political movement of the entire working class.
    The attack on UC Davis students is part of a nationwide crackdown on Occupy demonstrators, organized by both Democrats and Republicans and overseen by the Obama administration

  1. Go to the web version of the email blast.
  2. Scroll to the bottom. Click "More Topic Actions"
  3. Go to the sections "Compare Revisions"
  4. Compare the current topic ("3" in this one) to 1 (which is the prior day's)
  5. Click COMPARE.
Notes:
  • This does not show some changes, like images, so you should scan the original email too.
  • At the bottom of the original topic, you can view any older version (click the numbers) or comparisons ("<") by clicking on the list. (Doesn't work for our case of comparing one day to the next because there are usually several revisions before the final one, so you have to use the "Compare Revisions" function.
