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.

- Plaza to be Reoccupied, says Occupier Committee of Occupy San Diego
- Press release cites laws that state that a place to sleep must be provided or city must allow sleeping on city property.
- Please see the separate release.
Occupiers Plans To “Re-Occupy” Freedom Plaza Starting Saturday December 17, 2011.
We believe under the Illegal Lodging, 647(e) agreement filed 2/8/2011,
04 CV -2314 BEN, Exhibit "A" as well as “Training Bulletin SDPD, page 5
section II; 1., in conjunction with the federal court order giving persons the
right to sleep in public space when no shelter beds are available (and it is
rare to find such beds available), we have legal standing for our protest to
remain in the plaza 24 hours a day and 7 days per week. Therefore we're
lawfully re-occupying Freedom Plaza.
- SPECIAL GA MEETING on Saturday, Dec 17 at 2pm -- We need everyone to attend that can, so we can discuss whether fewer GA meetings with active committees will help the cause.
- Occupy SD benefit concert at The Ruby Room
- Fantastic! This was very well attended, and I thought the speeches were pretty good. I enjoyed seeing everyone in a social setting since we have bonded so much after working so hard on OSD.
- It's funny that I used to shoot pool at this bar when I was in college (30 years ago, OMG) and it was called the Backstretch then.
- Great success which must be repeated in the future.
- Press conference NO LONGER being planned for Friday, 12/16 regarding lawsuit for Ray Lutz arrest. Press conference has been postponed, possibly until after holiday season.
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!

Lutz suing Civic Center Plaza building owners and operators Project Details
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get it to the right people.
This topic has been moved to the "Common" web with other similar projects.
Click here: Common.Voter Registration Arrest Of Ray Lutz
- More on this project... Including collected media, documents, photos, videos, etc.
- This is a VERY IMPORTANT project because we will directly engage wall street firms who own and operate the CivicCenterPlaza office building.

From Rick Halsey in NYC:
OWS court adventure #5: special meeting @ 60 Wall St. (the atrium) to discuss issues relating to creating a safe space for discussion. Just so ya know, the discussions here sometimes echo ours. But believe it or not, we seem to have resolved problems that still cause difficultly @ OWS.
Wow, looks like I picked a good few days to check out our friends in NY so I could bring home some helpful information.
Toddynho, it might be useful if u could read our guidelines here or those from OWS. It would help you be more constructive. There were a couple folks here who were asked to step aside because their input was really disruptive... a difficult decision, but when our efforts to change the world are derailed by unnecessary negativity, well...
