Occupy Update! -- NEW SHORTER FORMAT


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.


There has been some talk about starting a new website, dissolving the media committee, etc. Please respect the work of the current committee members and help to continue this email blast as the foundation for organizing. This is a very advanced collaboration platform similar to wikipedia and wikileaks. It is very good at helping to organize information.

  • Bank Action Committee to meet to set a new direct action Wednesday at 5:30
  • Veterans meeting at 5:30 on Friday
  • OccupYrCorner – Homes already Occupied meeting at 6PM on Wednesday at Filter Coffeehouse in Hillcrest. Also an Occup Yr Corner event at Balboa and Genesee in Clairemont from 12-3 New Year’s Day
  • Finance/Media Committees: Thinking of hiring someone to “unify” the various Occupy San Diego web pages, preferably someone inside Occupy San Diego. (Comment by Ray -- Please just use this platform!)
  • Reflection Committee: next Tuesday at 4 PM, to talk about reaching out to other areas, and how to hold our ground.
  • Ray Lutz of media committee would like to catalog everyone who has been arrested, and catalog PD pictures with Badge and name of officers. We need a master list of everyone who has been arrested.
  • Demands committee is trying to establish a list of demands for Occupy San Diego. Meets Tuesday, at 5:30.
  • Facilitation Committee meets Saturday and Monday at 5:30
  • Occupiers wanted for the Holiday Bowl, tomorrow the 28th. If you are driving try to pick up passengers around noon at Freedom Square so we can occupy the trolley station and parking lot.
  • Arraignments despite being listed at 8 AM are usually at 10 AM, we need people there, when anyone is arraigned.

  • A proposal passed that the medical or wellness committee be separated from the safety committee. This as they have two different functions, and the safety committee is not prepared to approve requests to finance from the medical side of the currently combined committees.
  • Megan who is visiting us from Occupy Berkeley proposed having a New Year’s Eve event at Freedom Plaza and possibly going down to accompany the festivities in the Gaslamp Quarter, maybe a march, also to have a ball drop with food, music, and open mic/speakers at Freedom Square.
  • Discussion of having a table at the Homeless Connect event on Jan. 11th in Golden Hall. Or having one outside in the Plaza. For possible future discussion.
  • There was a proposal to have a “theme” each week based on a grievance, and possibly a teach-in right before any planned direct action. There were concerns that it would take a lot of time, and that people liked the idea but not sure how to pull it off. Michael Basillas set a time for an open working group Thursday and Sunday at 3 PM.

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.
