Occupy San Diego is comprised of many people
with diverse opinions. This email does not provide
the official position of Occupy San Diego, but is
compiled for the use of supporters and occupiers
by a number of volunteers.
News Media that may subscribe to this email blast
should confirm all information from other sources.


  • 12/13 -- Surprise MIC CHECK attendance at Port Commission Meeting
    • Video of the meeting will be available soon.
    • Most of the meeting was concerning the expansion of the Marriott Hotel next to the Convention Center, owned by Host, Inc. This is a perfect example of how corporations use our public waterfront to maximize their business at the expense of locals, constructing a "wall" of buildings next to the waterfront making it nearly impossible for the resident to reach or even see the harbor.

  • 12/14 -- Citizenship Ceremony at Community Concourse with voter registration in booths in public area of Civic Center Plaza -- 10:15-Noon.
    • Interesting that they are allowed to do this when OSD people are harassed for setting down a sign, a plant, or a pair of flip flops.
    • Ray Lutz is planning to join in the voter registration process to see what will happen.
  • Occupy SD benefit concert at The Ruby Room on December 14. -- See information below (in web version)
    • 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.

  • Occupier John Kenney arrested for "sleeping" at Freedom Square.
    • John Kenney, who is on Day 36 of his hunger strike protesting this lack of response from our elected leaders had begun to occupy the area in front of the doors into City Hall as part of his continuing protest that the City Council to agree to discuss Occupy San Diego as an agenda item.
    • At around 12:30 on the morning of Dec. 10th, John was arrested for illegal lodging while awake.
    • John is now out of jail. I talked with him and suggested that now is the time to end the hunger strike and and move attention to other legal avenues.

  • Press conference being planned for Friday, 12/16. Success of Port Action, Legal challenge updates, John Kenney ending hunger strike... stay tuned.

  • Arrests Update!
    • Of the 51 arrested on Oct 21 only 3 were charged.
    • Next court date is around January 15th
    • Looking for more details
    • Charges have not been filed but authorities reserve the right to file them if protestors are involved in any activity FOR A YEAR. What a pathetic way to put legal handcuffs on free speech.

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!

  • Temporary Restraining Order
    • Read all details here: Background, Court Documents and Ruling
    • Decision was reached on Dec 1. Judge DENIED TRO
    • Judge said the law was "narrowly drawn" which is nothing but unbelievable.
    • We STILL need video documentation of police hassling people about setting stuff down. If you have such a video, please contact us at so I can get it to the right people.

User's Tip

Since we get new subscribers every day much of the email blast will be the same as the last one. BUT, you can view JUST THE DIFFERENCES if you want to, so you can read it faster.
  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.
  • 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.


If you have:
  • lists of emails that should be subscribed
  • events or notices that should be included
  • needs or wants to request from our supporters
  • specific requests for volunteers
and we'll work to get that information included in this daily update.
