GA NOTES

Occupy San Diego CP General Assembly Notes, August 1, 2012
Moderators: Melissa Berens, Nic Paget-Clarke Note Tacker – Benjamin Cossel Stack Keeper: Anoki Time Keeper: Michael Ponsler

To open the meeting, Nic asked if anyone objected to being LiveStreamed and if so, to please move behind the LiveStreamers. Following a round of introductions, the report back of committees began.

Committee Report Back

Occupy the Food Supply: Benjamin Cossel reported the group meet regularly on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Anyone interested in attending the meetings could contact Benjamin or Nic for the meeting location. It was announced the group had agreed upon the goal of learning to work together and how to garden before taking on any other projects.

Education Committee: Ernie reported there will be an education committee meeting on Monday at 6 p.m. at the taco shop at 6th and A (unsure of the name, Ernie said to look for the $1.50 Taco sign). The next teach-in is tentatively schedule for Aug 12 during the Really, Really Free Market, location to be determined. Possible topics for the teach-in were GMO Foods and alternative currency systems.

Uma announced a group meet regularly at the World Beat Center garden on Tuesday and Thursedays beginning at 10 a.m. all are welcome. It is the hope there is enough support from OSD that the group will eventually spread out to other community hosted gardens and offer their labor.

There was a small discussion about Sunday’s actions in Anaheim with several people commenting on the over militarization of the Anaheim Police force. Some of the main points raised were: concern organizers of the events were targeting those who appeared different – specifically Corbin (one of the nine arrested) indicated he saw event organizers point him out at which point the cops arrested him. Donna noted the route used in the protest was highly predictable.

TPP Report Back: Anoki reported the TPP gathering on Sunday was successful and the group discussed ways they could assist Occupations where TPP meeting will be held next. Nic noted they had reached out to other Occupations and there will be a meeting soon to discuss such issues. Anoki mentioned the possibility of mirroring actions in cities already visited by TPP, specifically San Diego and Dallas.

OYC: Anoki reported back on the successful OYC event held earlier in City Heights. He said the group handed out nearly 170 flyers and spoke to several individuals impacted by the prison industrial complex.

Cristie Paris noted a possible all-day action at the Hall of Justice beginning on Monday to protest the wrongful killing of a member of the San Diego community.

12-12-12 Conference call: Benjamin reported back concerning the conference call with the Occupy National Gathering Working Group and members of OSD. He said the group has agreed to go back out to the community and discuss any possible actions with them to learn of their concerns and how they might want to implement such an action. It was agreed on the call to come back and discuss the action in two-weeks.

Agenda Items Discussion about Consensus – Uma gave a presentation on the history and some of the varied views on consensus. After Uma’s presentation a brief discussion was held by the GA about what consensus meant to everyone and how we might be able to better practice it within the community. Several pieces of literature were offered for anyone looking to further their understanding on the consensus model.

Discussion about 12-12-12 National Gathering Melissa read an email from Jennie Melillo toa member of OWS. In the email Jennie sought clarification on OWS’s stance on OSD raising concerns about the 12-12-12 action and detailed some of the issue surrounding individuals bringing the action forward. A heated discussion followed with nearly all individuals expressing their concerns about the action, the lack of vision and planning in the proposal and the lack of community outreach to those most impacted by any potential actions involving the international border. Nic noted he had spoke to a couple community leaders about the action and further meetings would be taking place in the near future. While there was not quorum, the overwhelming sentiment of those present was this is a bad idea and without more lead time, more planning and more outreach is not something OSD would support.

POLICE COMPLAINTS

Have you been mistreated by the Police? Have your First Amendment rights been violated? Have you been arrested for nothing, only to have the charges "unfiled" but held over your head for up to a year?
  • First read this document: http://www.2momslaw.com/police_misconduct.pdf
  • Make a Complaint: How to Make a Police Complaint
    • Use this form: Complaint Form
    • Forms also available in the lobby of City Hall.
    • Citizen's Review Board member says we do NOT need names & badge numbers. File the complaint & it's up to SDPD to determine who the officer was (But it is better if we have them, of course).
  • ALSO: By telephone or in writing to
    • SDPD Internal Affairs Unit, 1401 Broadway, MS 709, San Diego CA 92101, (619) 531-2801
    • Complaints made to the Citizens Review Board do not necessarily make it into the officers' personnel files
    • Read this: Making Police Complaints That Stick
  • Also, consider making a CLAIM against the city for your BOND money if charges were never filed. They have 45 days to reject the claim, then you file a lawsuit. It costs $400 to file unless you can claim low income.

What you say and do can hurt you in court -- This is what I advise my clients to say when confronted by a law enforcement officer: "Officer, please understand I refuse to talk with you until I consult with my attorney. 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.

The jail won't tell you much if anything that is not on the website. Please check this website before saying someone is in or out of jail to avoid confusion.
  • FYI -- Penal Code 849.5. In any case in which a person is arrested and released and no accusatory pleading is filed charging him with an offense, any record of arrest of the person shall include a record of release. Thereafter, the arrest shall not be deemed an arrest, but a detention only.
