Occupy Walk
I would like to commend & thank the Occupiers of for answering my call for help when my iPhone & travel things were stolen in Holbrook AZ 2 days ago. These amazing Occupiers drove 90 minutes each way to pick me up & bring me to safety in Flagstaff, then drove THREE HUNDRED MILES roundtrip to Kingman AZ, found the uber-surprised thief sleeping in his truck, and managed to get my phone & most of my stolen items back!!! HEROES. Nothing less. i am so grateful & honored to know these selfless Occupiers, who got no sleep that night despite a breakfast meeting the next morning. It was hard to express how thankful i was, but the reply was: "We're your brothers." Chris, Jason, & DJ, i love you all so much! Thank-you for JUSTICE. You guys rock! ;D ♥

Shut Down San Onofre
  • Project landing web site:
  • 30-sec TV Spot Catch it on MSNBC. Thank you Friends of the Earth!
  • On April 18th, Southern California Edison (SEC) admitted that Unit 2 had the same unusual wear as Unit 3 (the one the blew a tube) meaning it will be very difficult to turn on Unit 3 before understanding the problem, as had been suggested as one option by NRC Secretary Gregory Jaczko at the press conference.
  • Regarding the press conference -- 20/20 hindsight says our action would have been better not at the San Onofre plant, but in the street outside the Doubletree Hotel where Chairman Jaczko already had all the media, and people could easily see, park, etc.
  • NEW New Facebook page: <-- Please like it!
  • Cities of Irvine and Solana Beach voted to shut down San Onofre. This needs to be on the agenda of all local cities.
  • NEW Video from an M.D. on the estimated 1,000,000 that died as a result of Chernobyl, and the risks ahead with Fukishima:

Web Warriors Occupying The Media!!
  • This is a new group dedicated to flooding the media, be it print, digital, radio, or TV with our Occupy message. David Abramson came forward with this idea only a couple of days ago and we are already at work spreading the word to comments forums for local media outlets. For those of you on Facebook, there is a new group page called "Web Warriors Occupying The Media!!" dedicated to this ongoing project. It's a means of outreach that just hasn't been talked about a lot in the seven plus months since first Occupying Civic Center. Check there for ideas and the "files" section as well for media contact info. The Facebook page description from David Abramson:
Let's be real. Occupy has a lot of support in 0s and 1s from people that can't make it down to their local occupations but want to stay involved however they can. While some have turned to internet-battling each other in an ideological royal rumble, most have participated by spreading the word among their circles about what is going on in our global revolution. This page is a resource for our Internet Warriors to Occupy the interwebs and fight the narrative of the mainstream media -the propaganda machine of the current corporatocracy.
  • Expose the corporate media!!
  • Fill the comments of the lame-stream media articles with truth and tough questions.
  • Share articles that need to be Occupied with comments shedding light on the issues!!
  • Direct people to actual news sources!
  • Mail and e-mail local and national elected officials!
Occupy activists restoring computers for the underprivileged
  • A group is forming to recycle unwanted computers, wiping the data and installing open source education software to distribute where they are needed. More info at #OpEquip on Freenode IRC, Twitter @OperationEquip, or
Legal Hearings, etc.
  • UPDATED Andrew Fisher aka Fish will be released from Bailey Detention Center around 7 AM Thursday morning! From there he wants a good breakfast so plans are to take him to the Big Kitchen at 3003 Grape Street. He has very onerous stipulations for his three year probation period so we need to respect his wishes and desires not to return to the clutches of the criminal justice system. He cannot be around any alcohol. See FB post or here for the details.
  • UPDATED Benjamin Gasper's trial: New Trial date has been set for June 18th.
  • Zenyatta's (aka Parsley Zen Tart's) trial in dept 2 of San Diego Superior Court has been postponed until July 17th.
  • Bobby Uribe's trial starts June 11th. Need witnesses to Bobby Uribe's arrest at port protest

Things YOU can do right now to help.



See All Occupy San Diego Announcements to read all previous announcements about
  • Where we meet, how to recover confiscated property from the San Diego Police Department, information for people were arrested, etc.
  • Social Network Moderator Guidelines - OSD guidelines for moderating social network discussions


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?
  • First read this document:
  • 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 Complaints 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.

  • 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:
  • To check if someone is in jail check this website:
    • 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.
  • -- Your rights when you are being arrested falsely.
