UC RIVERSIDE BRUTALITY
SOPA/PIPA PROTEST, CONT.
World Beat getting ready to be occupied
Federal Building Occupied!
- This definitely got the message out...
- PIPA and SOPA Co-Sponsors Abandon Bills -- "PIPA co-sponsor Florida Sen. Marco Rubio pulled his name from the bill Wednesday and SOPA co-sponsor Arizona Rep. Ben Quayle pulled his name Tuesday."
- 10 reasons to fight SOPA - in case you need to learn about this.
- This is a lesson in a protest that apparently has worked for now. Make a note of this.
- Anonymous message about Megaupload as it hits FBI, Dept of Justice, Universal Music Group, RIAA, Motion Picture Association of America and Warner Music Group.
Unless noted, all events are at Freedom Plaza
(AKA Civic Center Plaza
, 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)
. But mark your calendars now for these!
- 24 Jan 2012 -- Important Citizens' Review Board of Police Practices at Pt. Loma Library. Very important meeting for us. Lots of time for public comment and to submit our complaints for them to process.
- 26 Jan (7p) -- Voices of a Peoples History event at SanDiegoCityCollege - Saville Theater. This is the 100th anniversary of the San Diego Free Speech Fight, when city council prohibited soapbox oration centered at Fifth and E streets in the Stingaree District (Gaslamp). Prosecutors charged those arrested on felony charges of conspiracy, and police brutality was common. The Free Speech League sought to bring the cases up to jury trials to clog the system. There were an estimated 5,000 involved in one protest, with 41 arrested. The views of the Free Speech movement were similar to Occupy, on the wealth divide, worker’s rights and later on, First Amendment rights. The circumstances of the movement are echoed today. Vigilantes would take Wobblies trying to go south to San Diego off the trains.

Re: Jan 18 front page comment on Occupy Congress
It would be refreshing if this paper would report the facts of what they print or even better a positive story in regard to Occupy San Diego. I just returned from Occupy Congress where a group of six women from Women Occupy San Diego met with eight legislators and/or staff. We went to discuss specific bills and issues and none of us were disruptive or arrested. We also expressed our dismay that legislators spend more time fundraising than they do listening to their constituents. We learned that not only does the 1% control Congress, but the children of the 1% employed on staff run the office making it difficult to get any constructive work done. All of the legislators we met with appreciated our visits and the fact that we had done our homework and came with specific goals. Most of the democrats we met with listened and expressed their support for the bills we discussed. However, the republicans only commented that they had a better solution, but could not tell us what that “solution” was.
They can talk and promise all they want, but actions speak louder than words.
3rd Place Award in MLK Parade!!
My Thanks to all the Occupy SD activists and their friends who proudly marched with the VFP entry in this years Martin Luther King Parade! Below is from our VFP SD Chapter President.
Vets and Supporters:
Big news I just picked up a trophy for San Diego Veterans for Peace. We were placed in the education section and were awarded third place. The trophy is 32 inches high. Very nice. I will bring it to the next monthly meeting. So congratulations are again in order. Joe and Dave please get the out to the Occupy groups who marched with us. And thanks to those Quakers who also marched with us. I have to admit we were outstanding.

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. I hereby demand to immediately be allowed the reasonable opportunity to obtain the advice of my attorney by telephone. from: http://layon.net/busted.php

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.
