War Against Women Continues

  • Flag-waving "Christian" Tea Party leader in this area arrested for kidnapping and raping a woman, 56, on Fiesta Island.
  • Arizona representative wants women to have to witness an abortion before it can be an option.

Occupy Walk

Stop SONGS (San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station = SONGS)
  • Next anti-nuke rally slated for April 29 (Sun) to commemorate Chernobyl disaster of 1986-04-26. Can you help us make this event even larger than the last one? NOTE: Moved this event to the 29th to avoid conflict with women's rights event.
  • NEW New Facebook page: http://www.Facebook.com/ShutSongs <-- Please like it!
  • See post-event notes here: M11SanOnofreProtestAndRally
  • 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.
  • It's getting worse for SONGS... another 4 tubes blew in the next test. That means they have a serious problem and the reactors will not be restarted for at least months. WE CAN MAKE IT PERMANENT!

Legal Hearings, etc.
  • Fish's trial will be on March 22nd. Public may not be able to attend until after jury is selected.

2012 Mar 21

Media: Occupy San Diego

  • Pension Reform Not What Will Save San Diego Money In fact, it’s estimated that over 30 years, the move could cost the city $13 million. That’s because of an assumed employer match of 9.2 percent and a new death and disability program for future employees to replace one in the current plan. The savings to the city in the pension initiative are considerable: $963 million over 30 years. But they come exclusively from proposed salary freezes.

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Corruption plagues all 50 states: study There is currently no state in America with a great track record in dealing with corruption and transparency issues in its government, according to a detailed study by an investigation group released Monday.

  • Tea party joins unions in opposition to Georgia anti-picketing bill The Atlanta Tea Party Patriots have joined labor unions and environmentalists in opposition to legislation that would outlaw some types of mass picketing. “The bill at face value, appears to be geared toward labor unions, but the devil is in the details,” the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots said in an email to members. “It clearly adds a ‘person or organization’, which could include not only big labor, but also Tea Party activists, those protesting outside abortion clinics, or many other scenarios

  • #OWS Calls for NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly To Resign Yesterday, members of the New York City Council decried the NYPD´s behavior on the March 17th re-eviction of Liberty Square. Today, Occupy Wall Street will call for the resignation of NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly for authorizing brutality and extreme abuse of police power. At 11am ET, we will march from Foley Square to a 12 noon press conference at 1 Police Plaza. Speakers will include victims of NYPD´s racist ¨Stop and Frisk¨ policies and targeted harassment of the Muslim community, as well as survivors of NYPD violence both within and outside Occupy Wall Street.

  • China’s spending on renewable energy soars World’s biggest polluter spends £4bn a year on wind and solar power generation in single region as it aims to cut fossil fuel use. The remote, wind-blasted desert of northwestern Gansu could be the most unloved, environmentally abused corner of China. It is home to the country’s first oilfield and several of the coalmines and steel factories that have contributed to China’s notoriety as the planet’s biggest polluter and carbon dioxide emitter.

  • Mandatory ultrasound measure approved by Idaho senate The state Senate in Idaho today passed a bill mandating an ultrasound for any woman seeking an abortion. The legislation prompted a protest on the capitol steps a couple of weeks ago, and last week a senate hearing room was packed as the State Affairs Committee approved the bill, 7-2, along party lines. The final tally was 23-12 in favor of the new ultrasound requirement. The measure now goes to the Idaho House where there are 57 Republicans and 13 Democrats

  • Sharp Response Meets Return of Protesters On Monday, George E. Packard, a retired Episcopal bishop, between City Councilmen Jumaane D. Williams, left, and Ydanis Rodriguez, protested the arrests Saturday night in Zuccotti Park. Now, with Occupy Wall Street’s resurgence, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s response to the protest movement has not been ambivalent. Asked at a news conference on Monday if he had a strategy to prevent large-scale arrests of protesters, Mr. Bloomberg said: “You want to get arrested? We’ll accommodate you.”

  • GMO Protesters Shut Down California Monsanto While proposed government regulation, previous legal action, and the threat of agricultural collapse does not seem to affect Monsanto’s daily operations, it appears protesters can and do. Dozens of protesters disrupted Monsanto’s California office in Davis, an area close to Sacramento, through vocal activism and calls to shut down the biotech giant with deep known ties into the United States government. Braving the rain, the dozens of protesters — not thousands — were successful in shutting down the entire office for the day.

    • Read this: Making Police Compliants That Stick
