Occupy Walk Shut Down San Onofre
  • Project landing web site: http://ShutDownSanOnofre.org
  • 30-sec TV Spot Catch it on MSNBC. Thank you Friends of the Earth!
  • On Wednesday, Southern California Edison (SEC) admitted that Unit 2 had the same unusual wear as Unit 3 (the one the blew a tube) meaning it will be very difficult to turn on Unit 3 before understanding the problem, as had been suggested as one option by NRC Secretary Gregory Jaczko at the press conference.
  • Regarding the press conference -- 20/20 hindsight says our action would have been better not at the San Onofre plant, but in the street outside the Doubletree Hotel where Chairman Jaczko already had all the media, and people could easily see, park, etc.
  • Next anti-nuke rally slated for April 29 (Sun) A29 San Onofre Protest and Rally to commemorate Chernobyl disaster of 1986-04-26. Can you help us make this event even larger than the last one?
  • NEW New Facebook page: http://www.Facebook.com/ShutSongs <-- Please like it!
  • Cities of Irvine and Solana Beach voted to shut down San Onofre. This needs to be on the agenda of all local cities.

Legal Hearings, etc.
  • UPDATED Our brother Andrew Fisher (Fish) received a 90-day sentence and very onerous stipulations for his three year probation period upon release. The judge showed no mercy nor took into account his outstanding behavior since his arrest. He is allowed visitors twice a week for thirty minute periods each visit, which can be up to three people at once. If you have a professional relationship with Fish, i.e. medical professional, minster, etc., you can register to visit him even if he is allowed only two thirty minute social visits/week. WE NEED TO COORDINATE VISITS TO HIM through a FB "event" page, if you are not on FB, PLEASE CONTACT TRACEY so she can work it in!
  • Zenyatta's (aka Parsley Zen Tart's) trial in dept 2 of San Diego Superior Court has been postponed until April 30th.

Media

2012 Apr 26

Media: Occupy San Diego

  • Irvine City Council Takes Lead Towards Stopping Likely Nuclear Disaster On April 24, 2012, hundreds of concerned citizens flocked to the Irvine City Council chambers to listen to renowned nuclear experts Arnie Gundersen and S. David Freeman and to support motions by former mayor/current city councilman Larry Agran to prevent San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) from going Fukushima.

  • Irvine City Council opposes San Onofre nuclear plant The Irvine City Council voted Tuesday night to send a letter to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission opposing the San Onofre nuclear plant. The plant has been shutdown since January because of problems with unusual tube wear in steam generators. More than 200 people packed the council chambers for a public hearing on the mostly symbolic letter. The letter opposes the relicensing of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and highlights other concerns over the plant’s operation. During the public hearing, people voiced concerns about evacuation plans, earthquake hazards, health effects of nuclear radiation and safety issues. Many came from San Diego and Riverside Counties.

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Occupy the Farm Activists Reclaim Prime Urban Agricultural Land in SF Bay Area Hundreds marched yesterday from the Earth Day rally in Berkeley, California to an empty tract of land to establish a new occupation. Immediately upon arrival, in a beautful dsplay of direct action, solidarity, and mutual aid, the Occupiers began clearing and tilling the land for use as a community farm. Already, over 10,000 seeds have been planted on the occupied farm, complete with chickens.

  • Roundup Herbicide Linked To Parkinson's-Related Brain Damage Alarming new research published in the journal Neurotoxicology and Teratology supports the emerging connection between glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, and neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and Parkinsonian disorders.

  • Going Dutch: 'Game over for euro if Netherlands quits' The caretaker Dutch Prime Minister is still desperate to push through budget cuts and has called on lawmakers to help him. The government collapsed on Monday when Mark Rutter resigned, as it failed to agree on painful measures demanded by Brussels. The political crisis has already been described as a revolt against enforced EU austerity. UK-based journalist and blogger Neil Clark says there's every chance now the Netherlands will abandon the Euro, which he believes would be disastrous for the single currency.

  • Occupy the Farm: "We're planning the future here." As some of you may have heard, a couple of days ago a coalition of local residents, farmers, students, researchers, and activists took over the Gill Tract, 10 acres of the last remaining Class I agricultural soil in the urbanized East Bay area. Dubbed Occupy the Farm, these American patriots are populating this incredibly fertile and precious patch of land with veggie seedlings, chickens, rabbits and good vibes.

  • GE Annual Meeting Interrupted by 99 Percent Protesters Hundreds of protesters affiliated with the "99 Percent" movement disrupted the start of General Electric Co's annual shareholders' meeting in Detroit on Wednesday, in an attack on the largest U.S. conglomerate's low tax rate. Outside Detroit's Renaissance Center, thousands more demonstrators swarmed the area, chanting "This is What Democracy Looks Like." They were surrounded by dozens of police, including three mounted units. While several thousand protesters made noise Wednesday in the city's downtown over feelings General Electric isn't paying enough in taxes, three dozen protestors stood up at the beginning of GE's annual shareholder meeting chanting "pay your fair share"

  • Private Prison Corporations Are Modern Day Slave Traders The nation’s largest private prison company, the Corrections Corporation of America, is on a buying spree. With a war chest of $250 million, the corporation, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, earlier this year sent letters to 48 states, offering to buy their prisons outright. To ensure their profitability, the corporation insists that it be guaranteed that the prisons be kept at least 90 percent full. Plus, the corporate jailers demand a 20-year management contract, on top of the profits they expect to extract by spending less money per prisoner.
