  • COPS will probably request documentation of surveys from the plant that are required by law regarding radiation levels around the plant.

  • Group Plans to Protest Issa Fundraiser Protesters organized by Women Occupy San Diego have vowed to picket a fundraiser for Congressman Darrell Issa tonight at the Shadowridge Country Club in Vista. Issa “recently held a panel investigation on contraception but refused to allow women to speak. Picketers want Issa to know they will make their views heard, despite his best efforts to ignore them,” alleges a release being distributed by the group.

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Citigroup's CEO Gets a 14,900,000 Percent Raise Vikram Pandit is officially no longer Citi's $1 man. Whether he should be a $15 million one is the question. Yesterday, the bank disclosed that it paid its CEO nearly $14.9 million in cash and options in 2011. That was up from a dollar the year before. Back in 2009, Pandit said he would take a salary of $1 until Citigroup (C) returned to profitability. In fact, Pandit stuck with the meager check longer than he had to. Citi made money in 2010. So you can't really fault the guy for taking more this year.

  • Protesters from Occupy DC march Photo - march to the White House in Washington on March 12, 2012 against legislation known as House Resolution (HR) 347 which critics say restricts freedom of speech and assembly.

  • Occupy DC protests H.R. 347 On March 12th, 2012 at 7pm protesters from Occupy DC gathered at Mc Pherson Square with the purpose of voicing their discomfort with the signing, by President Obama, of H.R. 347.

  • CODEPINK 'Busts Up' Bank of America CEO Speech Thursday, March 8th, three female "CODEPINK" protesters stormed the stage in a Waldorf Astoria ballroom, stripped to their bras, and began yelling at a room full of bankers who just moments before had been listening to Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan. The women had the slogan "Bust up Bank of America" painted on their chests, according to an Occupy press release.

  • Bust Up Bank of America This content may contain material flagged by YouTube's user community that may be inappropriate for some users. To view this video please verify you are 18 or older by signing in or signing up.

  • Bawdy protesters bust up Brian’s Bof A speech It’s the most action Bank of America shareholders have seen in a while. Yesterday, Bof A chief Brian Moynihan was ambushed at a conference in Midtown by women donning pink wigs and feather boas and demanding a breakup of the bank.

  • Busted for Busting Out at Bank of America Stripping Protestors In Pink Bras Crashed Bank Of America CEO Brian Moynihan's Speech,” declared Business Insider on March 8, showing Moynihan’s stern photo with a pink bra playfully dangling in the air beside him.

  • PART I Infiltration to Disrupt, Divide and Mis-direct are Widespread in Occupy as protesters arrived at the museum two people ran out in front, threatening the security guards and causing them to pepper spray protesters and tourists. Patrick Howley, an assistant editor for the American Spectator, wrote a column bragging about his role as an agent provocateur. A few days later we uncovered the second infiltrator when he was urging people on Freedom Plaza to resist police with force.

  • Part II Infiltration of Political Movements is the Norm, Not the Exception in the United States How many agents or infiltrators can we expect to see inside a movement? One of the most notorious “police riots” was the 1968 Democratic Party Convention. Independent journalist Yasha Levine writes: “During the 1968 protests of the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, which drew about 10,000 protesters and was brutally crushed by the police, 1 out of 6 protesters was a federal undercover agent. According to, Surveillance and Governance: Crime Control and Beyond, the goal of COINTELPRO was also to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, or otherwise neutralize” groups. FBI field operatives were directed to:
    1. Create a negative public image for target groups by surveiling activists and then releasing negative personal information to the public.
    2. Break down internal organization by creating conflicts by having agents exacerbate racial tensions, or send anonymous letters to try to create conflicts.
    3. Create dissension between groups by spreading rumors that other groups were stealing money.
    4. Restrict access to public resources by pressuring non-profit organizations to cut off funding or material support.
    5. Restrict the ability to organize protests through agents promoting violence against police during planning and at protests.
    6. Restrict the ability of individuals to participate in group activities by character assassinations, false arrests, surveillance.

  • Militarized Law Enforcement Raids Occupy Miami Before 3-13-2012 Action As we were leaving to do a march and rally multiple trucks and cars filled with SWAT looking officers with military armament came and drew their weapons on us and proceeded to round up all Occupiers and tenants and put them on the ground along with searching us and most rooms in the building. They had assault rifles and tactical shotguns. They were accompanied by FBI Agents and City of Miami police. These people were extremely violent and looked anxious to use their weapons so this first video was taken under my leg. This whole situation is very strange. Police state is nearly upon us.

  • (1pm) Outside City Council 202 C Street -- The Mayor and his rich downtown cronies are at it once again, pushing a new deal at the 11th hour to give rich hoteliers the keys to the Convention Center and let them loot it for their own profit. If the Mayor and his allies pull this off, it's a direct threat to hundreds of union jobs at the Convention Center and will stifle the voices of all the workers who have a direct interest in the Convention Center. The City Council has a chance to stop this brazen giveaway, and we're going to make sure they hear from the taxpayers who may be on the hook for the giant bill while the profits go to hoteliers. Add your voice!

  • 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).

    • SDPD Internal Affairs Unit, 1401 Broadway, MS 709, San Diego CA 92101, (619) 531-2801

    • 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.

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.
