KPBS Interviews Occupier David Jacob

KPBS asked Ray Lutz for an interview with OSD. David Jacob stepped up to the plate and gave a really informative interview. Good outreach to non-occupiers. Watch or listen here.

2012 Apr 06

Media: Occupy San Diego

  • Commercial to air on CNN exposes cover-up and radiation leak at California nuke plant (VIDEO) “Friends of the Earth launched a new television ad campaign today targeting the utility Southern California Edison, the operator of the troubled San Onofre nuclear reactors, which are currently closed due to serious safety problems. The ad parallels the threat from San Onofre’s troubled reactors with the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan — and notes that eight million Americans live within 50 miles of San Onofre, the distance the U.S. government advised should be evacuated in the Japan disaster. The ad urges residents to let the utility know that their families come first and that it must keep the reactors closed.” -Friends of the Earth, April 2

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Fascism Comes to the Internet: Introducing CISPA After nearly unprecedented pushback against bills SOPA and PIPA, their apparent defeat cannot yet be claimed. Most skeptics presumed that the defeat of the aforementioned would only serve to offer a compromised "SOPA light" at some point to circumvent criticism over government censorship. Well, it didn't take long. In addition to OPEN and ACTA to combat supposed piracy issues in the U.S. and Europe respectively, we now have been presented with a full-on fascist template for Internet control where government and private corporations will work hand in hand under the very broad definition of cybersecurity.
    The CISPA acronym is probably the most honest of those proposed thus far, and certainly is self-explanatory: the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Cybersecurity initiatives themselves are framed in such a way as to declare the free and open Internet to be subsumed into national security infrastructure, thus giving it over to the Pentagon, NSA, and other agents for use in surveillance and even offensive war. However, CISPA goes one step further to suggest that all information transmitted on this national security infrastructure is fair game for the prying eyes of the State. Most likely the private sector must bow to any and all demands made, or face being labeled as supporters of terrorism.

  • Hedges: "No Outcry Within Media" on NDAA We had reported on the show that a group of political activists and journalists testified in a New York Court about why they're suing the Obama administration over the National Defense Authorization Act or NDAA. Chris Hedges, author and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter is also one of the plaintiffs; he joins the show to discuss.

  • Obama signs insider trading ban into law In what has become a rare scene in Washington, a group of bipartisan lawmakers joined President Barack Obama today at the White House for his signing of the Stop on Congressional Knowledge Act. The legislation, referred to as the STOCK Act is designed to prohibit members of Congress, their families and staff from using any information gleaned while working on the Hill to execute stock transactions.

  • Is it time to break up the banks? week the Dallas Fed issued an explosive report (PDF) -- predicting America will face another financial crisis and be forced to bail out Wall Street again unless the biggest banks are broken up. This isn't the Occupy movement. The Dallas Fed is one of the most conservative banks in the Federal Reserve system. And it knows first-hand about the dangers of under-regulated banks -- the Savings and Loan crisis of the 1980s and '90s affected Texas like nowhere else. According to The Dallas Fed report, Wall Street's power makes it almost impossible to control because "they have the lawyers and the money to resist the pressures of federal regulation." This means the Dodd-Frank act, which is supposed to prevent another financial calamity, is woefully inadequate.

  • Capitalism's Dirty Secret: Corporations Don't Create Jobs, They Destroy Them Corporations are not working for the 99 percent. But this wasn’t always the case. In a special five-part series, William Lazonick, professor at UMass, president of the Academic-Industry Research Network, and a leading expert on the business corporation, along with journalist Ken Jacobson and AlterNet’s Lynn Parramore, will examine the foundations, history and purpose of the corporation to answer this vital question: How can the public take control of the business corporation and make it work for the real economy?

  • Meet the Occupy candidates Activists are running for seats in the same statehouses they occupied. Will the movement get behind them? Hakim, clearly, has a different view. “This is just another medium [for change],” he says, though he’s quick to note, “I’m not running as an Occupy candidate. I want to make that very clear.” In standard political speak, he explains that he wants to represent all his potential constituents.

  • Small CA Group Wins Over Walmart Quartz Hill Cares, a small group of concerned citizens in the Antelope Valley, CA, claimed a legal victory this week to stop retail giant Walmart. In 2007, the company proposed to build a 100,000 square foot store in Quartz Hill, a small town 70 miles north of Los Angeles. Community members came together in an effort to prevent Walmart from entering their community and potentially selling alcohol in close proximity to the local high school. Despite strong local opposition, many local politicians immediately supported the proposal to build the store.
    KTLA Channel 5 featured Loretta Berry of Quartz Hill Cares as saying, “The mayor said from the very beginning that this will be built. He said he didn’t care about the citizens of Quartz Hill or the businesses.” The group filed a case with the California 2nd District Court of Appeals. Finally, six years after the struggle began, the court ruled in favor of Quartz Hill Cares this week. The court ruled that the city had failed to meet the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act when they completed the Environmental Impact Report. For now, the group has temporarily blocked Walmart’s plans to enter the area. Berry as quoted in the L.A. Times:
