Occupy Walk converted the Cardiff Kook to become an Occupier

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.

Occupy the SEC
  • NEW An independent sub group of OWS did a great job addressing the Volker Rule, which is the proposed essential "fixes" to the fact that the Glass-Stegal Act was repealed in the Clinton Administration, which then allowed banks to participate in risky investment activities. The result of this working group is a 325 page letter as public comment during the standard rule making procedures. Comments from the public are requested, but the public has been so complacent in years past, these opportunities to influence our government are so rarely used that we have all but forgotten about them.
  • See and read the letter!
  • This is a very productive project that shows the world that the occupy movement is more than just squabbling with police.

Occupy Walk I just talked to the walkers, Bill William Terzin. Mike and Jason had a near miss with a car on the 76, it's such a dangerous road. They have already reached the 15 freeway, making good time. Susan is picking them up and has food for them. Please continue to watch the live feed and please donate anything you can-no matter how small, all is needed and appreciated. I am trying to get Pauma or Pala casino to supply food for them tomorrow.

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.
  • 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!
  • NEW Women from Fukushima have been confirmed for this event. This will make it extremely newsworthy -- you don't get visitors from Japan to tell their story very often.
  • Have ordered more flyers and 100 posters. Will need help distributing these to coffee shops, college campuses, gathering places, etc.

Legal Hearings, etc.
  • Benjamin Gasper's trial has been postponed to allow the defense to respond to new evidence brought forth by the prosecution. The newest court date is March 19th at 9:30 in department 50.



Unless otherwise noted, we meet daily as follows:
  • 4 pm -- Finance Committee Meetings continue at the ActivistCenter, Mon. thru Fri. In the future, Saturday meetings may be resumed at Freedom Plaza or Children's Park.
    • Each committee should send a representative to this meeting!
  • 5:30 pm -- Committee meetings -- Each will schedule the days of their meetings.
  • UPDATED General Assemblies no longer meet daily. See listing below for upcoming GA meeting dates. When GAs fall on a Saturday, meetings will be at Balboa Park (near 6th and Laurel) at 2 PM
    • Weekly Saturday meetings will also be held at 2pm at FreedomPlaza.
    • GAs require 20 participants for a quorum.
    • Committee/Working-Group members: Please update any changes or additions as desired to osd-feedback (at) citizensoversight (dot) org. Also Facilitation maintains a website at

Mitchell Sterling (Regarding Saturday)
TY to Kali Katt for co-facilitating today's GA with me. For me it was a great learning experience, and I so appreciated all that Kali did in that capacity! Additionally TY to the more than 47 people that came in the spirit of Occupy to today's GA at Freedom Plaza. It is always encouraging to see so many people who are passionate about the goals of Occupy gather together to discuss them.

It is disappointing we could not accomplish our agenda today, as there are so many vital issues we need to address. I look forward to the next opportunity when we come together to do so. Also I was disappointed that after more than two hours work and nearly reaching consensus on today's first proposal, it was hard-blocked. Quite ironic as well, that the hard-blocks came from people who were so upset that after their work had been hard-blocked 3 or 4 weeks ago, they left the Plaza to meet separately as a splinter group in Children's Park.

I do look forward to when we come together and can work well and in unity once again to accomplish the vast amount of work that is needed to bring the message of Occupy to the public. Every day it becomes increasingly more apparent that economic reforms and social justice are greatly needed in our nation.

John Falchi
From what I have heard here since the most recent GA, it sounds like both Occupy Children's Park and Occupy Freedom Plaza have an interest in coming together, however there have been some difficulties in doing so. This would be important to follow up on as soon as practicable. There are a number of people who believe in Occupy Together who have not taken sides in this matter who might help to mediate this. You know there was an attempt to begin this process on the morning of 2/11/12 in Balb oa Park before the march arrived there in which Melissa for Children's Park and John K. for Freedom Plaza were both present. Joan of Occupy Los Angeles helped to facilitate this meeting. There were a few others present. It resulted in both sides agreeing to cooperate enough to help the SOCAL Inter-Occupy Gathering take place. What has been done, can be done.l If whole nations, like the Union of South Africa can bring the two sides together without a war, we in San Diego should be able to accomplish solving our differences, too. There is to be an already scheduled meeting at the Peace Resource Center of San Diego on Wed., 2/29/12, from 6-8 pm., related to this general subject, perhaps that is a neutral enough setting in which to begin. I suggest that each of these two fine groupings of Occupiers select at least one person to represent their grouping there to learn about ways and means of bringing some people from each of the groupings together to begin to work out their differences.. That may be a way to start some type of future formal mediation, on neutral ground, with trained mediators, to bring about some type of reconciliation between the two groups. Who are those among us who think that this would be practicable?

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


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:
  • 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

    • 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.
