Media: Occupy San Diego

  • An Open Letter To Wal-Mart Upon hearing of Wal-Mart’s plan to open a store in Logan Heights’ and Sherman Heights’ iconic Farmer’s Market building on Imperial Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets, we as community; residents, non-profit organizations, faith, and labor leaders began the process of soliciting the community's input on the proposed store. As part of that process, we have compiled a list of priorities for prospective business partners.

  • Unions Send Wal-Mart Letter Outlining Requests A handful of community and labor groups have penned an open letter to Walmart concerning the company’s announced intention to take over the farmers' market building on Imperial Avenue in Sherman Heights. The letter states that the groups met with Walmart representatives and consultants on March 29 to discuss the community’s expectations for the store and to request “a legally binding community benefits agreement.” The list of priorities, which letter-signers say were gathered through soliciting direct input from the community, include local hiring, affordable health benefits for employees, traffic mitigation projects, safety improvements, and investment in community programs.

  • An Open Letter To Wal-Mart The community’s list of priorities includes local hire, affordable health benefits, traffic mitigation, safety improvements, and investment in community programs. All of the issues included are considered vital commitments to meeting the needs of local residents and important for any large retailer interested in being a partner in the success of our community. We believe that the only way to truly commit to those priorities is with a legally binding agreement with the community.

  • Community's 'open letter' to Walmart Group wants retail giant to commit to local hires, affordable benefits. As Walmart prepares to bring its smaller grocery-format store concept to San Diego, a coalition of unions, neighborhood groups and nonprofits is asking the company to commit to hiring local workers and investing in the community.

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Their plan for low-wage America JOBS ARE coming back, but you can forget about a living wage--unless you and your co-workers are organized enough to demand one. That's the real story behind the long-delayed rebound in employment that government statistics have been showing for the past several months.

  • Occupy takes protest to street -- the one near Bank of America Over the weekend, Occupy D.C. activists established what they hoped would be a permanent camp outside a Bank of America branch near the White House. There was but one tent -- and it was purely symbolic, with protesters sleeping on the street instead. Activists say they're returning to Occupy’s roots.

  • New jobs added but not enough to satisfy GOP Bernie joins Ed Schultz on MSNBC to talk about Republican obstructionism on the economy. “If you’re asking me, are the Republicans prepared to do whatever they can to torpedo the economy in order to defeat Obama, I think the answer is pretty clear. They have shown that time and time again.”

  • Why Obama's JOBS Act Couldn't Suck Worse The "Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act" (in addition to everything else, the Act has an annoying, redundant title) will very nearly legalize fraud in the stock market. In fact, one could say this law is not just a sweeping piece of deregulation that will have an increase in securities fraud as an accidental, ancillary consequence. No, this law actually appears to have been specifically written to encourage fraud in the stock markets.

  • Occupy escapes eviction Less than 30 minutes after police began bulldozing the Occupy New Haven encampment on the New Haven Green, city officials were forced to halt the eviction when a federal appeals court issued an injunction allowing the protest to survive at least another week.

  • Occupy Returns to Roots With 'Sleepful Protests' The newest strategy is called "sleepful protest" (#sleepfulprotest, for Twitter users). Over the weekend, Occupy D.C. activists established what they hoped would be a permanent, though purely symbolic, camp outside a Bank of America branch near the White House.

  • Madison City Council passes resolution recognizing Occupy Madison Resolution passed at the City Council meeting on April 10: NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the City of Madison thanks the Occupy Madison movement and the current Occupy Madison residents for their efforts to address important community needs during this recession and recognizes their potential to be an important resource for this city;

  • Monsanto and Big Tobacco Blamed for Birth Defects Monsanto, Philip Morris and other U.S. tobacco giants knowingly poisoned Argentinean tobacco farmers with pesticides, causing “devastating birth defects” in their children, dozens of workers claim in court.

  • Study: Autism Linked to Industrial Food, Environment new study by Clinical Epigenetics, a peer-reviewed journal that focuses largely on diseases, has found that the rise in autism in the United States could be linked to the industrial food system, specifically the prevalence of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in the American diet.

  • Monsanto sued for poisoning farmers Members of the "Occupy" movement in the Midwest protest against Monsanto's agricultural practices in front of the Missouri Botanical Garden during the "Occupy the Midwest" regional conference in St. Louis, Missouri March 16, 2012 A lawsuit filed this week claims that the Monsanto corporation, "motivated by a desire for unwarranted economic gain,” knowingly poisoned farmers that were pressured to use the company’s chemicals.

  • Montreal Students Occupy Banks in 12-Hour Protest Marathon Students in Montreal and across Quebec today continue their protest against tuition increases and austerity measures in education with a 12-hour ¨“marathon of intensive vindication,” according to organizers. Today will see rolling student protests mostly focused against banks. In Montreal, marches leave from Victoria Square every hour and will each take unique routes through downtown. Just after 8am ET this morning, Montreal police dispersed a blockade ot the Banque Nationale tower using chemical weapons, preventing hundreds from getting to work inside. Meanwhile, in Quebec City, 60 protesters occupied a CIBC bank near the National Assembly. When police entered to remove them, the group merely crossed the street and occupied a Banque Nationale branch.

    • Use this form: Complaint Form
    • Forms also available in the lobby of City Hall.

    • Read this: Making Police Compliants That Stick

I also refuse to consent to any search of these premises or any other premises under my control, or in which I have a possessory, proprietary, or privacy interest, including my car, my body, or effects.
