OSD 3-month march See entire album
(by Eugene Davidovich)

The man who attacked the march, dropping Chaplain Ron Dismuke to the ground and one other woman. He was taken to jail. Is that a $100 bill in his pocket? The bribe to attack us?

  • The man who ran into our protest march across from the Federal Building, grabbing the sign, was taken to jail.
  • Ron Dismuke is out of the hospital with pulled psoas. Doctor says he can'r run for a while.
  • Stephanie Jennings was roughly arrested last night, for no reason at all, and charged with assaulting an officer, and slapped with $10K bail.
    • If her attorney OK's it, she may do a press conference on Monday.


Unless noted, all events are at FreedomPlaza (AKA CivicCenterPlaza, 1200 3rd Ave. San Diego, Intersection of 3rd Ave. and B St.)
Unless otherwise noted, we meet daily as follows:
  • 4 pm -- Finance Committee Meeting, Downtown Johnny Brown's, Mon. thru Friday
    • Each committee should send a representative to this meeting! Budget is currently being defined.
  • 5:30 pm -- Committee meetings -- Each will schedule the days of their meetings.
  • 7pm -- General Assembly (Civic Center Plaza)
    • NEW Saturday GA will be at 2pm.
    • GAs require 20 participants for a quorum.

  • This coming Tuesday is the first City Council meeting of the year. Public comment is held after 10am and usually completed before noon.

  • Arraignment of RayLutz is scheduled for 8am, Jan 10 (Tuesday). I understand that actually means 10am. This high-profile arrest is one we should have maximal involvement of OSD because the media will likely continue to follow it. Everyone is welcome to attend if you can! Usually Dept. 3 (just to the right of the entrance) at the County Courthouse on Broadway. As usual with all court appearances, best attire is recommended.

  • Very Important -- The ballot proposition to revise the encroachment law (SDMC 54.0110) will be on the agenda on Wednesday, Jan 11 (9a) at the City Council Conference room (Floor 12) of City Hall. Since it will be ON THE AGENDA, that means everyone who was arrested, cited or detained for "Encroachment" under SDMC 54.0110 should come to this meeting and SPEAK.

  • Mayoral "State of the City" address Wednesday (Jan 11) at Balboa Theater, reception following at U.S. Grant Hotel. This information needs to be confirmed, with more details to follow if any actions are approved by OSD at our GA.

  • Jan 14 - Occupy So Cal Meetup in Long Beach at their MLK parade. -- this event is being held by Occupy Long Beach and discussed in a recent conference call to coordinate Socal Occupies. To folks in the greater LA area, "Socal" usually does not include San Diego. Not approved for formal participation by OSD by our GA but included here for information only.

  • OSD Contingent in D.C. on Jan 17. (Bus leaves Jan 13 and returns Jan 25.)
    • Updates to Road2Congress:

      • Occupy DC is having an Occuparty after #J17 events at Mcpherson Park.
      • Round trip plane ticket is approx. $280.

  • Concert fundraiser at World Beat Center featuring Liquid Blue on Jan 20. You know how great the last fundraiser concert was... this will be even better.

  • Feb 10,11,12 -- "Occupy" the Democratic State Convention in San Diego -- NO ACTION HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE OSD GA YET.

  • #OO #OPD slams woman and her bike to the ground, beat her and chase her down the street! January 7, 2012, a woman and her bike were shoved to the ground. She was then surrounded by several OPD who pulled out billy clubs and pummeled her and her bike. A group of fellow protesters screamed at the cops and ran to her rescue. Though she was pulled away from the grips of the police, she and the group were chased down the street. Moments after this footage, the entire group of protesters on this street were quarantined and illegally detained there for 10 minutes before being released...since they did nothing illegal.
