2012-02-24 -- HIGHLIGHTS:

24 Feb 2012 - Fri

  • (9:30a) Jury trial of Benjamin Gasper continues, who despite our state's law allowing for medical marijuana cultivation for personal use, has been targeted by San Diego's District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. This trial will be indicative of how Dumanis and those under her operate and bend the law to interpret simple cultivation to automatically infer cultivation for sales. The trial is being held at dept. 50, fourth floor, San Diego Superior Court, 220 West Broadway. More info at the Facebook event page at Benjamin Gasper - Jury Trial. Opening arguments will likely start early next week when supporters of Ben are encouraged to attend.
  • (12p-1:30p) Justice for Janitors (J4J) rally and march, to address income inequality and lack of health care benefits for janitors, begins at 8th and B Streets. Unfortunately, San Diego County janitors have the lowest pay and benefits in the entire State of CA. (Not an OSD event) More info see Facebook event page
  • (5p) Protest in solidarity with Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan who has been snatched from his home, and has been on a 65-day hunger strike in an Israeli prison. He has had no trial and has not been given a reason to be detained. At Federal Building, 880 Front St.

M11_San_Onofre_Flier-1up-fmclip.png Details: M11 San Onofre Protest And Rally

OSD Forks
  • There are two groups meeting which are forks from the original OSD.
  • Freedom Plaza maintains a smaller group of perhaps 8 people.
  • Childrens Park has a much larger group of about 40 people or more.
  • Most of the information in the blast will be related to the OSD fork at Children's Park.
  • Please check meeting locations carefully as previous information may be incorrect.

Snapdragon scam
  • Citizens Oversight sponsored the submission of a complaint to the San Diego County Grand Jury since any hope of getting any investigation from Bonnie Dumanis, endorsed by Jerry Sanders, is pretty unlikely. Sanders was behind all the unreasonable arrests at Freedom Plaza and it's nice to see him worried about some jail time.

Occupy Walk
  • Jason Brock says: The walkers are doing well on Occupy Walk. We are on our way to Temecula.
  • We will be including updates daily!

San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)
  • NEW OSD endorsed!
  • Press Release on M11 San Onofre Protest sent to media and all lists Monday.
  • Contacted by KPFA -- They want to run our livestream along with many other protests happening on March 11 regarding the Fukushima disaster.
  • US News media has blacked out news about the continued full meltdown at Fukushima and the radioactive contamination of the area because most of the media is owned by companies who also have a stake in the nuclear industry. NBC which has the most left-leaning news station, MSNBC is wholly owned by GE, a nuclear industry leader.
  • Details: M11 San Onofre Protest And Rally -- but campground does not allow camping, only day use at the time of the event.
  • FYI, RayLutz picked up the media box from Activist San Diego and will be refurbishing it for use at this rally, so we can run our PA system which needs power. The media box has a severe case of "Street Cred" -- It has been through a lot!

Media

2012 Feb 24

Media: Occupy San Diego

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Occupy Movement Plans National Conference In Philadelphia A group affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement is planning a national conference in Philadelphia this summer. According to the group, which is dubbed "The 99% Declaration," an online election will decide on the 876 delegates — a man and woman from each Congressional district — who will gather in Philadelphia on July 4th.

  • NDAA: Liberty Preservation Act This legislative package is a state-level response to constitutional violations by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) – primarily provisions that authorize indefinite detention. Activists, we encourage you to send this to your state senators and representatives – and ask them to introduce this legislation in your state.

  • Minimum Wages Could Be Lowered In Arizona, Florida Republican lawmakers in Arizona are pushing legislation that would lower the legal minimum wage for younger part-time workers and tipped workers such as restaurant servers, just as Florida lawmakers are considering dropping their state's tipped rate as well.

  • OWS PR working group statement on the 99% Declaration The 99% Declaration and its call for a “national general assembly” in Philadelphia in July is not affiliated with or endorsed by Occupy Wall Street, and the organizers’ plans blatantly contradict OWS’ stated principles.

  • Top 6 Corporations to Occupy As organizers start to regroup and set their sites on the spring, groups in 34 cities have agreed to “a day of nonviolent direct action” on Feb. 29 against corporations they accuse of working against the public interest. We nominated six we think deserve an Occupation: Exxon - Headquarters: Irving, TX; General Electric - Headquarters: Fairfield, CT; Monsanto - Headquarters: St. Louis, MO; Bank of America - Headquarters: Charlotte, NC; Walmart - Headquarters: Bentonville, Ark.

  • The Anonymous, Occupy Connection Yesterday I appeared again on cable news network RT America, this time to discuss the Pentagon's apparent view that it can respond to hackers -- those who deface and vandalize HTML webpages -- with military force, i.e. drone bombs and covert strike teams

  • Where we meet, how to recover confiscated property from the San Diego Police Department, information for people were arrested, etc.


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?
  • NEW 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 Compliants 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.

Call for Witnesses:
Two occupiers are facing trial for criminal charges stemming from arrests at the Port Shut-down on December 12. Attorneys for Curtis Williams (aka Hex) and Bobby Uribe are looking for defense witnesses to dispute officer testimony and any photo or video footage of the arrests. If you witnessed Curtis's arrest, please contact attorney Laura Sheppard at lrsheppardlaw@gmail.com. If you witnessed Bobby's arrest, please contact attorney Adriane Bracciale at criminalandtrafficdefense@gmail.com.

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.
