2012 May 01

Media: Occupy San Diego

  • Protesters call for shutdown of San Onofre nuclear plant Members of seven local anti-nuclear groups march to a rally at San Onofre State Beach south of San Clemente on Sunday. The group was trying to raise awareness of safety issues at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the decommissioning of the plant. (Photos)

  • Rally Near San Onofre The protesters rallied on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with the twin domes of the San Onofre nuclear power plant as a backdrop. The plant has been off line since January when premature wear was discovered in the steam generator tubes and a radiation leak led to a shut down.

  • Activists, Community Members, Teachers Ready For May Day Rally A large group of San Diego activists, union members, and students are expected to usher in the month of May tomorrow with a May Day rally in downtown San Diego. Organizers are calling for a general strike, no working, no school, no buying on May Day, in protest of cuts to schools and social services in California.

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • Network: The greatest movie you've never seen Released in 1976 this movie is just as relevant today. This is a small montage of the best parts. Unlike many movies this is more about the monologue than the dialogue and is all the better for it.

  • Why Hasn't the Revolution Already Happened? That which is holding back the revolution required to radically redress the top-down enslavement of humanity and the destruction of our planetary resource base seems to hinge on three conditions: Too many people are too comfortable and prefer to believe what the propaganda machine tells them. Too many people are too uncomfortable and remain preoccupied with a basic level of survival. Too many people remain indifferent or afraid and shut themselves off from the potential to change.

  • Occupy Bilderberg 2012 The infamous and elusive Bilderberg club has decided to bring their annual meeting back to the United States after setting last year’s event at a hotel buried deep in the mountains of Switzerland. This year, May 31st through June 3rd they are returning to Chantilly, Virginia. If there was ever a chance to point out every head on the hydra in one protest, this is it. It doesn’t matter if you think that wall street is to blame for our current crisis, or if you think that the government is to blame, either way this organization is in control of both of those institutions so this should be a mission that we can all agree on.

  • Wal-Mart’s U.S. Expansion Plans Complicated by Bribery Scandal In Los Angeles, a Wal-Mart building permit is getting a once-over. In New York, the City Council is investigating a possible land deal with the retailer’s developer in Brooklyn. A state senator in California is pushing for a formal audit of a proposed Wal-Mart in San Diego. And in Boston and its suburbs, residents are pressuring politicians to disclose whether they have received contributions from the company.

  • The Precariat – The new dangerous class It consists of a multitude of insecure people, living bits-and-pieces lives, in and out of short-term jobs, without a narrative of occupational development, including millions of frustrated educated youth who do not like what they see before them, millions of women abused in oppressive labour, growing numbers of criminalised tagged for life, millions being categorised as ‘disabled’ and migrants in their hundreds of millions around the world. They are denizens; they have a more restricted range of social, cultural, political and economic rights than citizens around them. Growth of the precariat has been accelerated by the financial shock, with more temporary and agency labour, outsourcing and abandonment of non-wage benefits by firms. The shock ended an era of delusion, in which workers’ living standards were held up by tax credits, subsidies and cheap credit.

  • Romney's Big-Dollar 'Bundlers' Stay Anonymous Every presidential nominee going back to 2000 has revealed the names of influential supporters known as "bundlers" because of the way they persuade others to give money to a candidate. Every nominee, that is, until Mitt Romney.

  • Agent Orange corn – new from your GMO pushing ‘friends’ The latest outrage is brought to you from Dow Agro Sciences who has been pushing the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for approval of a new herbicide resistant corn seed that has been genetically modified to be immune to 2,4-D. Now, 2,4-D is an ingredient that was used in Agent Orange, the infamous herbicide that was liberally sprayed over large portions of Vietnam to kill jungle trees and other plants

  • UC Davis Students and Faculty Face Prison Time for Peaceful Protest Against Bank It seems that the University administration has successfully evaded scrutiny of the role it played in a series of events that began in January at UC Davis when 12 protesters, some of whom had been pepper-sprayed in November, staged another peaceful sit-in at the campus branch of US Bank. The sit-in was an important political action in defense of public funding of the University and against the replacement of that funding by private contracts with corporations. The protestors won an enormous victory when US Bank closed it University branch on February 28, possibly breaking its agreement with UC Davis.

  • Occupy Wall Street Sues New York City, JP Morgan #OWS A less costly but nevertheless important front for pushing back is via suits against police violations of Constitutional rights. Bloomberg reports that two cases were filed today, one against four New York City council members, JP Morgan, Brookfield Properties, and Mayor Bloomberg over the use of excessive force by police and denial of constitutional rights. OWS also filed a separate suit against police chief Ray Kelly by five protestors seeking class action status over detention of protestors when they were “never charged with any violation, misdemeanor or crime.”

  • ‘General strike’ to hit the US on May First In more than 100 cities from Washington State to the District of Columbia, protesters are orchestrating a massive country-wide demonstration on Tuesday, May 1, and their plans call for what could be the biggest event of its like in recent memory.

  • US May Day Protests Planned, May Disrupt Commutes Demonstrations, strikes and acts of civil disobedience are being planned around the country, including the most visible organizing effort by anti-Wall Street groups since Occupy encampments came down in the fall.

  • A Day Without the 99% Imagine a day in without work, school, housework, or shopping. Imagine a day in which you did whatever you wanted. What does it look like?

  • Occupy May Day protests could block roads, shut down ferry service May Day protests may disrupt the morning commute in major U.S. cities Tuesday as labor, immigration and Occupy activists rally support on the international workers' holiday. Demonstrations, strikes and acts of civil disobedience are being planned around the country, including the most visible organizing effort by anti-Wall Street groups since Occupy encampments came down in the fall.

  • Mayday! Mayday! "Mayday!" Bankers Panic Over May Day Demonstrations This May Day demonstration will be the largest of its kind in a half-century and will take place in cities across the U.S. On May 1, 2012, tens of thousands of people throughout the U.S. and the world -- workers, students, immigrants, professionals, houseworkers -- employed and unemployed alike - will take to the streets to unite in a General Strike against "a system that does not work for us."

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.

Lutz suing Civic Center Plaza building owners and operators Project Details
  • More on this project... Including collected media, documents, photos, videos, etc.

Legal Resources
  • The National Lawyers Guild resources to protesters who have been arrested NEW 619-500-4486 occupylegalsd@gmail.com
  • 1st Circuit Rules Public Has Right to Videotape Police
  • 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.
