- BAH HUMBUG! City of San Diego removes Christmas Tree from Civic Center plaza and detains several peaceful citizens in the process.
- 17 Jan 2012 - Million tent protest in Washington D.C.
- Occupy Greyhound Update: OSD to Occupy Greyhound to OD.C. to be part of the 1 million tent protest. We are leaving on the 13th and returning in SD on the 25th. We have 12 people going and we were able to purchase 8 tickets from donations. We will still be collecting donations for the use of going to some tourist attractions while we are in DC as a group, in matching Occupy San Diego clothing hopefully. We are also working on getting a hold of all the local media stations so when we stop there should be coverage of our trip (hopefully). We are going to get with education committee to see if there can be some classes to make sure everyone is up to speed on all the important issues currently infesting our world. I am very thankful for all the support we have received from the community of people that could not go but wanted to see this trip become a reality. If you would like to know who is going PM me and I will ask everyone if they want me to inform the public on their intent to go to DC. (A few think the cops will target them to make it so they can not go). Please Contribute. https://www.wepay.com/group/view/90142 BIG HUGS AND HUGE THANKS
Despite what you might hear on the corporate-owned news:
- The occupation continues, around the clock.
- PLEASE COME DOWN when you can and help with numbers. This is your true vote. Stay at home = vote against 99%.

- Food is needed -- we no longer have a food table, so you'll have to play it by ear.

- Many Teach-ins on Sunday!

San Diego Police Cite Marine Corps Vet for Carrying American Flag
Members of Occupy San Diego respond with massive rally
by Benjamin Cossel -- email@example.com
SAN DIEGO -- Iraq war veteran, Marine Lance Cpl. John Canter holds a “Mic Check,” Dec. 23, prior to leading a group of protestors from the downtown San Diego intersection of 4th Avenue and B Street ending at Civic Center Plaza, renamed Freedom Plaza by members of the Occupy San Diego movement. The protest was in response to actions earlier that day by members of the San Diego Police Department who cited Canter for carrying an American flag. Members of the police department who issued the misdemeanor citation deemed the pole, upon which the flag was attached, too large. Photo by Benjamin Cossel
SAN DIEGO -- Protestors from Occupy San Diego, Move On.org and Veterans for Peace take to the streets of San Diego, Dec. 23 to protest the citation of Iraq war veteran, Marine Lance Cpl.

SAN DIEGO -- At approximately 9:40 p.m., Dec. 22, members of the San Diego Police Department cited Iraq war veteran, Marine Lance Cpl. John Canter for carrying an American flag at Civic Center Plaza, home to the Occupy San Diego movement.
Earlier that same evening, another protestor was arrested for lighting a bundle of sage in celebration of the Winter Solstice.
Using an obscure municipal code, Canter was cited under section 53.30 which prohibits certain item at protests and other such events.
San Diego municipal code section 53.30 states: “No person shall carry or possess while participating in any demonstration, rally, picket line or public assembly any metal stake, club, or pipe, or any length of lumber, wood, or lath, unless that wooden object is 1/4'' or less in thickness. and 2” or less in width. If not generally rectangular in shape, such wooden object shall not exceed 1/2” in its thickest dimension."
In what would appear a case of selective enforcement, no member of the San Diego Tea Party as been cited under the same guise despite large Tea Party protests and gatherings in San Diego where the American flag, on an apparently illegal size pole, was displayed.
In an interview with signonsandiego.com, San Diego Police Department assistant chief Boyd Long said officers could tell the flag pole was larger than regulations allowed.
"I don't know that it takes an expert to make a determination on what is or isn't thicker than one-half of an inch," Long said. "They got back to the station. They did measure it. It was three-quarters of an inch thick. So it is in violation."
“I was in shock when they told me I couldn’t carry the flag,” Canter said. “I have never in my life been told I couldn’t carry an American flag. It’s clear they were just looking for a reason to cite me specifically, as a veteran.”
Elaborating, Canter added many members of the Occupy San Diego movement appreciate the presence of veterans at the occupation of Civic Center Plaza and look to veterans of the community as a source of strength and pride. Canter, who served in the Al Anbar province of Iraq from April 2007 to November 2007, is a regular at the plaza in his Marine Corps desert combat uniform.
“The cops saw this as a chance to say ‘we’re not afraid to go after a veteran,’” the young Marine said. “It was a chance for them to say ‘we’re in charge.’”
Following the incident, calls went out on the Occupy San Diego Facebook page for an impromptu rally to, as described by rally organizers, take the American flag back from SDPD.
At 4 p.m., Dec. 23, protestors from Occupy San Diego, Veterans for Peace and Move On
.org rallied at the corners of 4th Avenue and B Street in downtown San Diego. Nearly all of the more than 70 protestors carried American flags on illegal sized poles while others draped the flag around their necks.
“I was really surprised by the number of people that came out for this,” said Canter who led the march.
“We had already planned a rally in support of Occupy Egypt for later that evening but to see this many people come out for the flag was really inspiring,” Canter said.
Reflecting back on his time in Iraq, Canter said he and his fellow Marines often looked to the flag as a source of pride and something they could rally around.
“It’s really important to me,” he said of the American flag. “Especially when you’re away, in a foreign country, to see the flag and be reminded of what America, at least used to, stand for.”
Canter said one thing he would like to make clear, while the flag is currently being held under his name by the San Diego Police, the flag itself belongs to Occupy San Diego, given to the group as a gift.
After nearly an hour protesting at Civic Center plaza, protestors marched nearly five blocks to the San Diego Federal Courthouse for a solidarity rally in support of the Occupy Egypt movement.
Since the Occupy San Diego movement began in early October, nearly 139 protestors have been arrested. Charges have been brought against only 29 of those arrested.

"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

CALENDAR OF EVENTS
- 27 Dec 2011 - (2p) -- Using foswiki (free open source wiki -- copswiki.org) to create the Email Blast and for Media Archiving. Ray Lutz will be conducting this "hands on" tutorial/discussion session, held at Luther Tower at the corner of 2nd Ave and Beech St. (1455 2nd Ave, San Diego, CA 92101) - http://www.copswiki.org/Common/LutherTower
- Foswiki is absolutely the most productive system I have ever used for very general purpose organization of web data. It is NOT a discussion forum (that does not really allow much organization) but instead is a structured wiki, that allows for dynamic content creation, easy web page creation, etc. and allows anyone to help from any browser in the world. Unlike most website creation programs, this platform does not have a single-user bottleneck, and there is no problem with passwords, struggles over control, etc. (Or at least I hope so.)
- A small number of parking passes (five) are available for people to use the First Presbyterian Church parking lot. Park first, pick up your pass, and then put it in your car. (I.e. free parking). Call me if you are unsure if we have passes available at 619-820-5321 when you get there.
- I will be (hopefully) using a projector and screen as I access the site using a browser so you can see what I am doing, and hopefully to allow you to try your hand entering media to the archival system.
- Also, we need additional volunteers to help with the email blast, and I will be going over that if someone is there who wants to help with that. (This daily newsletter can evolve into something that resembles a regular publication, with your help).
- This platform can also be used to help maintain a database of people arrested/detained, court actions, police ids and complaints and followup about irregular police behavior.

Links to sites/pages below that are no longer actively updated:
Since we get new subscribers every day much of the email blast will be the same as the last one. BUT, you can view JUST THE DIFFERENCES if you want to, so you can read it faster.
- Go to the web version of the email blast.
- Scroll to the bottom. Click "More Topic Actions"
- Go to the sections "Compare Revisions"
- Compare the current topic ("3" in this one) to 1 (which is the prior day's)
- Click COMPARE.
- This does not show some changes, like images, so you should scan the original email too.
- At the bottom of the original topic, you can view any older version (click the numbers) or comparisons ("<") by clicking on the list. (Doesn't work for our case of comparing one day to the next because there are usually several revisions before the final one, so you have to use the "Compare Revisions" function.
