OSD at College Protest

M11_San_Onofre_Flier-1up-fmclip.png Details: M11 San Onofre Protest And Rally

Occupy Walk The ground support in Hemet was much needed and I am grateful for it. Already the walk is giving a new energy to the movement. It's bringing people together for the right reasons. It means a lot that you're contributing. This morning we leave for Banning.

San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)
  • NEW Event has been endorsed by the SD Sierra Club ConsCom.
  • Press Release on M11 San Onofre Protest sent to media and all lists Monday, Feb 20.
  • NEW A woman and a man 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 (costing organizers over $3000)
  • NEW Mimi Kennedy, supporting actress in Academy Award nominee "Midnight in Paris" will be keynoting.
  • NEW Met with San Onofre State Park rangers and SONGS security. Rally site will be about 1/4 mile from the secure area of the plant, but it will be in full view. Rangers and security officers were very cooperative and helpful so far.
  • Fliers and posters are in hand! Please email osd-feedback@citizensoversight.org if you can help distribute flyers and put up posters.

Legal Hearings, etc.
  • Curtis Williams, aka Hex -- Jury said: Not guilty for blocking traffic and mistrial for delaying police officer! YEA! We win!! But, only half way...
    • Adriane Bracciale says: -- PLEASE contact Curtis Williams's lawyer Laura Sheppard if you saw Curtis Williams get arrested: lrsheppardlaw@gmail.com. His trial resulted in a hung jury, 9:3 Guilty:NG, and the City Attorney gets another chance to try for a conviction with a new trial. The jury was not swayed by his defense witnesses because no one saw the moments leading up to the arrest or the initial detention itself.
  • 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.
  • Fish's trial will be on March 22nd.
  • Bobby Uribe's trial starts 4/19. Need witnesses to Bobby Uribe's arrest at port protest.

Media

2012 Mar03

Media: Occupy San Diego

  • Student Walk-outs at Four Area Colleges Yesterday, March 1st, was the National Day of Action for Education. Students at four area colleges walked out in solidarity and staged marches, rallies, teach-ins and even a “sleep-in” at one campus.

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • France's Sarkozy Holes Up In Bar To Escape Protesters Several hundred angry protesters booed President Nicolas Sarkozy, forcing him to take refuge in a cafe protected by riot police as he campaigned Thursday in France's southwest Basque country. Riot police surrounded the Bar du Palais in central Bayonne where Sarkozy holed up to get away from the protesters some of them Basque nationalists, others carrying posters of rival Socialist candidate Francois Hollande

  • Occupy invades “America’s storage shed” Faced with protest, Walmart unilaterally shuts down three warehouses in Southern California. It was in Mira Loma that a few hundred members of various Southern California Occupy movements converged at sunrise on Feb. 29 with the goal of shutting down a Walmart distribution center.
    They were joining in the one-day “Shut Down the Corporations” action staged nationwide against Fortune 500 companies like Walmart, Monsanto, Pfizer, Citibank, Koch Industries, BP, Bank of America, AT&T, Altria and Peabody Energy. According to “F29” organizers, these corporations are all big-money backers of the American Legislative Executive Council (ALEC), which critics say “rewrite state laws that … often directly benefit huge corporations.”

  • Occupy Riverside:Police Protect Walmart from Occupiers Walmarts's largest distribution center was shut down today as Occupiers participating in the F29 protest against ALEC and their funding sources blocked their roads. The sheriff came out to disrupt the protest and instead made fools of themselves as they were unable to control the crowd in such an open area. In over 70 cities today an effort was made to raise awareness of the tentacles of ALEC strangling our way of life in the endless search for profit.

  • Ben and Jerry's and the occupy Movement Ben Cohen talked about his company's, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, plans to help fund the Occupy Wall Street movement. He also discussed campaign finance reform and the role of small businesses in the U.S., and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.

  • Our Corrupt Politics: It’s Not All Money Until 1853, bribing members of Congress was legal, and lobbyists did so with impunity. After bribes were outlawed, lobbyists realized that the law permitted them to pay congressmen “consulting fees,” which they did until well into the twentieth century. Worse, the politicians took bribes with impunity

  • Romney tax plan favors the richest of the rich The non-partisan Tax Policy Center published a fairly detailed analysis yesterday of Mitt Romney's new tax plan, and it led to a series of headlines like this one: "Wealthy would cash in under Romney tax plan."

  • UC Santa Cruz, UC San Diego protests include traffic blockages, occupations Protesters at UC Santa Cruz started the day early, effectively shutting down campus operations such as traffic in and out of the campus from 4:30 a.m. until around 5:30 p.m. And rallies at UC San Diego took an unexpected turn when a group of protesters occupied a conference room in the campus administrative complex in the afternoon.

  • F29: Occupy Wall Street strikes back About 100 protesters rallied in Bryant Park against the the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Occupiers say that mega-companies like Exxon Mobil, Bank of America, BP, Monsanto, Pfizer, and Wal-Mart use ALEC to buy off legislators and craft legislation that puts corporate profit over the well-being of ordinary people.

  • Car plows through Occupy Education demonstrators in California Supported by a host of faculty and staff, several hundred University of California, Santa Cruz students gathered at the base of campus Thursday for a largely peaceful Occupy Education demonstration against state budget cuts and the university’s handling of the losses.

This is from Adam (Plantz) in Fullerton...

"I am in Occupy Fullerton right now and things up here are awesome.... Spread the news that we have tents and a supportive community up here. Also, can you please spread the word that Occupy Fullerton needs donation money to help pay for the charges that the city requires for a nightly fee. I believe a total of $1500 this month is due, and if San Diego Occupiers can help subsidize the charges for our Brothers and Sisters in Fullerton I believe we can rebuild a strong Occupy in So Cal.

can you please text me if we can gain support from OSD to help Occupy Fullerton?"

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.

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

  • What to say to cops if you're busted. What you say and do can hurt you in court -- This is what I advise my clients to say when confronted by a law enforcement officer: "Officer, please understand I refuse to talk with you until I consult with my attorney. 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
  • To check if someone is in jail check this website: http://apps.sdsheriff.net/wij/wij.aspx
    • It usually takes about 6 hours for someone who has been arrested to pop up here. This site will tell you their charges, bail, etc. Jail's number is (619) 615-2700. 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.
