July 1 - Jason: Chris Hedges is speaking to NATGAT in Ben Franklin park. He is talking about criminalizing dissent in our legal system and constantly rebuilding mass movements. It is hot and humid but there is shade. All is peaceful right now.

Occupy Walk - NATGAT - 99 Mile March and Guitarmy Shut Down San Onofre
  • NEW Please vote in the L.A. Times opinion poll on shutting down the plant permanently. Unions have been encouraging votes to get it back on line; thus the votes for shutting SONGS down are under 40%.
  • Project landing web site: http://ShutDownSanOnofre.org
  • 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: http://www.Facebook.com/ShutSongs <-- 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.

Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Endorsements - Each organization below stands in solidarity with the disenfranchised both here and abroad in condemning these talks as destructive to the workers of the world, and have endorsed a Call to Action.

FEATURED COMMENTS

From John B Kenney on Tuesday:
Thanks so much Everyone, Much more still to be done. But for now.... Thanks for all the work, sweat & tear. YES!! Si se puede. YES WE DID!! WE WON!! California lawmakers pass historic foreclosure protections http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-homeowner-rights-20120703,0,5215367.story

Sometimes David beats Goliath. Today is one of those days.

Just a few minutes ago, the Homeowner Bill of Rights was passed by the California State Legislature. This means that Wall Street Banks are on notice: California will no longer tolerate the unfair and abusive foreclosure practices of the big banks.

The banks fought this legislation with everything they had. They spent $70,000 a day filling the campaign accounts of elected officials and the halls of the capital with lobbyists. Together, we fought back with a strategic, coordinated and powerful campaign that ultimately prevailed. We organized thousands of boots on the ground, held rallies in key districts, earned dozens and dozens of media hits and made it clear that legislators would be exposed if they choose Banks over communities. (Thanks Vivian, Eddie, Courage Campaign & ACCE)

Thank you all again for all your precious, hard work. And Juan Vargas & Ron Calderon were both YES! Not over by a long shot - but at least many struggling individuals and some devastated communities of color will have a fighting chance.

Great work & let's keep up the great fight. Whose homes? OUR homes!!!

Solidarity, JBK OSD ( Special Thanks to OccupyFightsForeclosures, Carlos, Suzanne, etc. and all in the Occupy family & the 99%)


ANNOUNCEMENTS

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


LEGAL

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?
  • 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 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.

Lutz suing Civic Center Plaza building owners and operators Project Details
  • More on this project... Including collected media, documents, photos, videos, etc.
  • This is a VERY IMPORTANT project because we will directly engage wall street firms who own and operate the Civic Center Plaza office building.

Legal Resources
  • The National Lawyers Guild resources to protesters who have been arrested 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.
