Tasks complete! Good work OSD!


Occupy Walk may take Route 66 all the way to Chicago. 99% on Route 66!

Power of the Net

Occupy Walk

Stop SONGS (San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station = SONGS)
  • See post-event notes here: M11SanOnofreProtestAndRally
  • photo montage video
  • Nuclear Hot Seat Podcast of 3/11/12
  • Testing of Steam Generation Tubes fail -- From Orange County Register. This failure is VERY significant because any failure means that all the other tubes are very likely to fail if the plant is restarted.
  • Review of livestream showed 0.015 mR/hr which is about 1.31 mSv/Yr. The legal maximum ABOVE BACKGROUND is 1mSv/yr. So depending on what the background radiation is, this is right at or perhaps slightly over the legal maximum. The typical background radiation is about 3mSv/yr. Depends on how the device is calibrated, that is, perhaps the background is already zeroed out.
  • COPS will probably request documentation of surveys from the plant that are required by law regarding radiation levels around the plant.
  • Full video of the rally: Fukushima Remembered (2 parts)
  • Note: Next anti-nuke rally slated for April 28 (Sat) to commemorate Chernobyl disaster of 1986-04-26. Can you help us make this event even larger than the last one?
  • The NRC sent a task team to inspect the San Onofre reactors regarding the blown steam generator tubes. Protestors will greet this team on Monday, the best we can figure. Media will be there anyway to cover the arrival of this inspection team.
  • After the NRC completes their inspections, they will be having a PUBLIC MEETING! Time/date and location not announced yet. This is a all-hands-on-deck event that can be the end of SONGS. We have to be ready to deploy to this public meeting.
  • The test they just completed is very important to understand. Of the some 10,000 steam generator tubes, they chose probably a random sample of tubes -- 129 -- to pressurize and confirm no blowouts would occur. After the test, those tubes cannot be used because they have been overstressed in the test, so they are plugged. If there is even one blowout, that means that the whole steam generator assembly will likely be a lot worse. If 1% of the tubes are tested, then 100x more would likely fail in use, i.e. about 300 failures. So this result was an indication that the reactor cannot be restarted for some time to come, and hopefully, will be the start of a permanent shut down.

Politics

Legal Hearings, etc.
  • Benjamin Gasper's trial: the parties have agreed to continue the case so there will be no significant proceedings Monday, March 19, and a new date for the trial will be set then.
  • 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
  • HELP: Need video or eye witnesses, anyone who: 1) took video of Mr. Dennison's arrest, especially from the beginning; 2) witnessed Mr. Dennison's arrest; 3) Knows anything about the cops in the photo; 4) was harassed or arrested by any of the cops in the photos. The cops are Button and Newton. The Sgt. is Depress, and Depree started it. Please assist. Mr. Dennison was arrested on 10-28-11 at the civil center.

Media

2012 Mar 17

Media: Occupy San Diego

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Denver Police Unjustly Harass and Arrest Occupiers Over the past two weeks the Denver police department as well as several other agencies have stepped up their harassment of occupiers, especially those who are houseless. They have taken it beyond just arresting those associated with Occupy Denver, they are trying to create an atmosphere of fear at Civic Center Park. They know our numbers will grow as Spring arrives and they are doing what they can to scare people away and silence dissent.

  • Occupy Protesters Injured, Arrested in Police Confrontation “Chaotic” is the way Occupy the Midwest protesters described their Thursday night confrontation with police in a south St. Louis park. Two were injured and a number of them were arrested. KMOX’s Michael Calhoun was on the scene and said fourteen were cuffed and put into the back of police vans.

  • Dozens Protest Bank of America in "Fight BAC" Action Dozens of people rallied in New York on Thursday to protest Bank of America for its foreclosure practices and billions in government aid. At least three people were arrested after demonstrating at a Bank of America branch. "The message today was very simple. Bank of America is a criminal institution that has stolen $230 billion in bailout money alone from the American people. They’ve stolen our homes. They steal from taxpayers and kill the environment. So today took our homes to Bank of America. We’re starting a campaign to break up the bank, to end the Bank of America corporation, to take its assets and redistribute them to institutions that will be accountable to the American people. Because it’s our money. It’s our trillions of dollars they’ve been using to fly on jets, to buy their houses while they kick us out of ours. So we’re going to take our money, and put it into institutions that are good for our people, and not institutions that hurt, destroy, and rob from our people." Video starts @ 11:35 minutes.

  • Occupy The Midwest Attacked By Police This weekend, Occupy Wisconsin is covering The Occupy The Midwest Regional Conference, which started sadly tonight with St. Louis Police beating peaceful protesters with batons and arresting several at an encampment for Conference participants.

  • Occupy the Media—and the Message From its inception, the Occupy movement has had a contentious relationship with the mainstream media. On September 17, a few hours into the first day of the occupation, as a couple of hundred people assembled in Zuccotti Park, some demonstrators were already complaining of a “media blackout.” I was there, as an enthusiastic participant, yet even I wasn’t convinced the event was particularly newsworthy: in May more than 10,000 people had marched through nearby streets airing similar grievances; a month later protesters camped for two weeks outside City Hall as part of a protest called Bloombergville. Yet accusations flew through the Twittersphere. The traditional media are ignoring us! Why aren’t we big news?

  • You've Got To Read This Explosive Letter About A Coverup At The CBO The WSJ broke a big story today about an inquiry into shady behavior at the Congressional Budget Office. At the heart of the story is former CBO economist Lan T. Pham, who says she was fired for sharing her pessimistic outlook for banking and housing sectors in 2010. Pham made this explosive claim in a letter to Sen. Charles Grassley

  • (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.

  • Where we meet, how to recover confiscated property from the San Diego Police Department, information for people were arrested, etc.


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.
