Media

2012 Apr 14

Media: Occupy San Diego

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Evicted From Park, Occupy Protesters Take to Sidewalks The protesters arrived on Wall Street on Wednesday night carrying bedrolls, quilts and blankets. They spread pieces of cardboard on the sidewalks. Then, as several police officers stood nearby, the protesters made signs with anticorporate slogans.

  • DOJ sues Apple over price-fixing scheme The U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday brought a lawsuit against Apple and several publishing companies over a scheme to fix e-book prices. The suit stems from the 2010 release of the iPad, when Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) reached an agreement with five publishers to release books on its then-new iBookstore. The DOJ said Apple colluded to raise the price of e-books with CBS's (CBS, Fortune 500) Simon & Schuster, News Corp.'s (NWS) Harper Collins, Hachette Book Group, Pearson's (PSO) Penguin unit and Macmillan.

  • Mitt's off on PBS Mitt Romney supports removing all federal funding for PBS, and if the network is interested in survival, it will be forced to turn to private advertising revenue. "We're not going to kill Big Bird, but Big Bird is going to have advertisements," is exactly how he put it, but Romney is neither smart nor funny, so allow me to translate. Advertisements turn children's brains into thin slurry that candy companies and Mc Donalds then build direct pile lines into. That isn't even a hyperbole, as anyone who has heard a child suggest what model of car to buy can attest. It is wrong to advertise to children, and for someone who wants to run the country to so blatantly support it is lunacy. At its best, PBS is a bulwark against the commercial world. Certainly allowing "Sesame Street" to become a toy store dynasty is a mixed bag, but PBS shows themselves are often the purest thing available to young minds. To threaten to take that away to save money is absurd.

  • Keep Super PACs off PBS and NPR U.S. appeals court just struck down a ban on political ads on public broadcasting.1 That means your local PBS or NPR station could start running nasty attack ads right away.

  • Iceland forgives mortgage debt of its population The government of Iceland has forgiven the mortgage debt for much of its population. This nation chose a very different way of stopping the crisis from the rest of European countries. It decided to hear the requests of the population and to put politicians and bankers on the bench of the accused three years after their financial excesses would sank one of the most prosperous economies in 2008.

  • Top Fed Official: “The Moment Is Now” to Break Up Big Banks The nation’s largest banks are “a perversion of capitalism” and “a clear and present danger to the U.S. economy.” The Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation passed in the wake of the crisis “may actually perpetuate an already dangerous trend of increasing banking industry concentration.”

  • ‘Occupy’ as a business model: The emerging open-source civilization The answer isn’t a simple yes or no. Occupy Wall Street set up working groups to find solutions to their physical needs. The economy was considered as a provisioning system (as explained in Marvin Brown’s wonderful book, Civilising the Economy), and it was the “citizens”, organised in these working groups, who decided which provisioning system was appropriate given their ethical values.
    For example, organic farmers from Vermont provided free food to the campers, but this had a negative side effect: the local street vendors, generally poor immigrants, did not fare too well with everyone getting free food. The occupiers cared about the vendors and so they set up an Occupy Wall Street Vendor Project, which raised funds to buy food from the vendors.

  • Is Wal-Mart good for America? During the last two decades, Wal-Mart has been able to take advantage of the rise of information technology and the explosion of the global economy to change the balance of power in the business world.

  • What Is Occupy Wall Street About? If you're having trouble understanding what is at stake in the "Occupy" protests, here are some numbers that help explain the problem.

  • 10 Big Companies That Pay No Taxes (and Their Favorite Politicians) Between 2008 and 2011, 26 major American corporations paid no net federal income taxes despite bringing in billions in profits, according to a new report (PDF) from the nonprofit research group Citizens for Tax Justice. CTJ calculates that if the companies had paid the full 35 percent corporate tax rate, they would have put more than $78 billion into government coffers.

  • How Swedes and Norwegians Broke the Power of the ‘1 Percent’ While many of us are working to ensure that the Occupy movement will have a lasting impact, it’s worthwhile to consider other countries where masses of people succeeded in nonviolently bringing about a high degree of democracy and economic justice. Sweden and Norway, for example, both experienced a major power shift in the 1930s after prolonged nonviolent struggle. They “fired” the top 1 percent of people who set the direction for society and created the basis for something different.

  • UC Davis Pepper Spray "Could Have Been Prevented" The 200 page document concluded that the incident "should and could have been prevented." Those words appear in the first paragraph of the lengthy document. The report also said that the use of the pepper spray "does not appear to have been an objectively reasonable use of force."

  • STUNNING! Banksters launder foreign drug cartel money as Wells Fargo invests in for-profit prisons Last year, Wells Fargo paid a fine they could easily afford when they had purchased Wachovia bank, after Wachovia got busted laundering $110 Million dollars of drug money for foreign drug cartels. If you're keeping score at home that means if you get busted smoking a joint you go to jail, but if you get busted laundering millions of dollars in drug cartel money you get a slap on the wrist. Now, here's the catch, if you get caught smoking pot and go to jail, Wells Fargo will make a profit off of that too thanks to America's growing for-profit prison system.

  • Millions Against Monsanto: The Food Fight of Our Lives For nearly two decades, Monsanto and corporate agribusiness have exercised near-dictatorial control over American agriculture, aided and abetted by indentured politicians and regulatory agencies, supermarket chains, giant food processors, and the so-called “natural” products industry. Finally, public opinion around the biotech industry’s contamination of our food supply and destruction of our environment has reached the tipping point. We’re fighting back.

  • Owned & Operated (Complete) Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system... and fear in those who are pampered by it.

  • Make a Complaint: How to Make a Police Complaint
    • Use this form: Complaint Form
    • Forms also available in the lobby of City Hall.

    • Read this: Making Police Compliants That Stick
