Mark your calendars now for the next don't-miss fundraiser! Feb 19 Printable Flier
On Oct 28th around 8:30 pm I was standing on the sidewalk in the intersection between 3rd and B, on the east side of the Civic Center Plaza. At the time the crowd got heated because the police officers where "closing" the plaza with barricades. There was an object that was thrown and hit one of the officer that was standing near the barricades. An officer arrested me because I "looked suspicious." This is attributed to the fact that I had a gas mask around my neck. I was also wearing an orange shirt, with a jean jacket. If there is anything that you can do to help me I would really appreciate it. If you need more details of the incident let me know. email me I would really appreciate it: email@example.com

Committee announced they were repurposing the “99%” stickers to a form of outreach. Anyone who knows of local businesses who might be interested in supporting OSD should contact members of finance to make arraignments.
Finance also reiterated there was only one official OSD donations site (https://npo.networkforgood.org/Donate/Donate.aspx?npoSubscriptionId=1005034 ). It has come to finances attention there are a least one or two other sites currently out there (http://occupysd.weebly.com/) that were seeking donations. Finance asked that people please be mindful of where they make their donations as OSD has been the victim of fraud and scams in the past.
Committee announced launch of new OSD website – http://www.sandiegooccupy.org/all are encouraged to participate in the forums and add content to the website.
The question was posed to Media who controlled the administrative passwords to the site and other media assets. Members of the committee stated they were working on a process to ensure keys to the kingdom weren’t soley in the possession of a single individual and would be bringing that to GA in the near future. The question was also raised as to the location of the OSD media cart – it is currently safe at the offices of Activist San Diego.

Move to consensus: a vote of no confidence on Occupier John Kenney.
Stating of Grievances – given the extraordinary turn-out at this general assembly, the moderator took a temperature check asking if individuals wanted to restate grievances against the individual. The temperature check was overwhelmingly in the affirmative.
Summary of identified grievances: Lack of transparency for Inter Occ Super Committee and lack of transparency in action (video, audio recording) in general, making promises not consented up during Long Beach Inter Occ GA, surveillance of occupiers homes, blatant violations of the good neighbor policy (recording individuals who specifically asked not to be recorded), inability to explain actions when questioned, falsely representing himself as OSD Consentor in official communications, issuing of press releases not consented upon, willfully violating established political autonomy statement, establishing a 66% consensus model for led committees, actively violates and encourages others to violate GA process, misrepresentation of self to others, general obstructionism.
Following the listing of grievances, a question stack was opened. Several questions clarifying the grievances were brought up. Specifically individuals wanted to see the documented proof concerning the accusations of surveiling occupier’s homes, evidence was provide for those seeking.
During the Concern Stack, it was voiced that any move to vote of no confidence for an individual should have a clear path back to “confidence.” It was noted the path back to confidence should be clearly defined.
After a lengthy period of time trying to incorporate all of the concerns, facilitations restated the new proposal (https://osdfacilitation.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/vote-of-no-confidence-in-john-kenney-on-day-2-tonight/) The measure received 37 Ayes, 1 abstention, and 4 blocks. The vote of no confidence will go back to committee and be on the Feb 7, GA agenda.
