Occupy Walk on the road to Hemet

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 had a good turnout at the recent GA on Saturday, 47 people, a bit increase from last weeks 8-10 people.
  • Childrens Park has had a consistently larger group of about 40 people or more.
  • This email blast does not play favorites and will try to provide information on both forks, and other non OSD events too.
  • Please check meeting locations carefully as previous information may be incorrect.
  • NEW See message from "Anonymous" here: http://pastebin.com/mSyPTXqg

Occupy Walk They will probably get halfway to Hemet tomorrow [2-28], They will need provisions about mid day or so.

San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)
  • NEW OSD at Children's Park 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.
  • 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.
  • NEW Ed Begley Jr. Confirmed as Keynote speaker!
  • Fliers and posters ready for deployment. Need help!!

Legal Hearings, etc.
  • Jury trial of Curtis Williams, aka Hex, is continuing in Dept 15 of San Diego Superior Court. Jury selection will commence Tuesday, February 27, and opening arguments are likely to occur in early afternoon (1:30p), but jury selection process has no set time. The public is normally allowed to witness jury selection but they way they run it here, they consume all seats in the courtroom to avoid public scrutiny, so you can't get in unless you fill in a seat where a juror was sitting, and that is just confusing to them so they don't like it (Although I went into Dept. 50 last Thursday during the end of jury selection and they let me in.
    • Hex was arrested during the Port Shutdown protest for crossing the street and faces a misdemeanor charge of Penal Code 148, resisting arrest or delaying/obstructing a peace officer. Hex wants the support of his fellow occupiers and media attention on his trial. This is sure to be an exciting show; Hex's attorney will be exposing police lies and presenting evidence of innocence, including exonerating video of the arrest and eyewitness testimony of fellow occupiers. Please, if even for only an hour this week, come occupy the court in support of a committed member of this movement, and stand against the continuous civil rights violations of San Diego law enforcement and the City Attorney's persecution of an innocent man.
    • Check the Facebook event for updates and to RSVP. The downtown criminal courthouse is located at 220 W. Broadway.
  • 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.
  • Mayor to get new contract-making power: See the article, a small paragraph near the bottom. City council voting this week to give Sanders more contract making power. What about the next mayor? Anybody want a new stadium (or a new stadium sign)? Article
    • Makes you wonder if this is the way the City Council holds the Mayor's feet to the fire. Don't question his authority and the fact that he violated the law, just grant more power and leave them out of it, that must be what they are thinking.
    • It also means developers get their way with little or no citizen review. We must stand against these changes!

Media

2012 Feb 28

Media: Occupy San Diego

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • The itinerant US left has found its home in the Occupy movement At the auction of foreclosed homes at Queens supreme court in New York, the official carefully explained the process for one person to make an offer on another person's misery. As the bidding was about to begin on what was once the home of Valencia Williams, around 20 people stood up and started to sing: "Mr Auctioneer / And all the people here / We're asking you to call off the sale right now / We're going to survive but we don't know how."

Damian Tryon says
Just got news that Shahrokh's brother passed away from a heart attack. Shahrokh has been with Occupy SD from before the start. And even though he doesn't have Facebook he really does exist. He could use condolences and support today from those that know him. Sounds like he'll be heading up to San Jose soon though plans are up in the air. Spinach Williams, Cynthia Tecson and I just met his twin brother and mother in San Jose just a few weeks ago.


ANNOUNCEMENTS

See All Occupy San Diego Announcements to read all previous announcements about
  • 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.

  • Arrests At Balboa Theater 2012 Jan 11 -- This topic created to track arrests and progress fighting felony arrests at BalboaTheater
  • UPDATED Two items relevant to OSD mission were placed on the agenda of the City of San Diego Rules Committee. This committee is yet another example of a "do-nothing" committee because they hardly even treated the proposals as serious.

  • NEW TELL POLICE HOW THEY ARE DOING: Police host monthly meetings in the community to get feedback from community members.

  • Legal is asking: If you were at the South gate on the day of The Port Shut Down 12/12 and witnessed any of the arrests and are willing to testify...please contact HiAndrea on FB or haz_el_eyes@yahoo.com -- Tammy.

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.
