  • Occupy Walk USA: "While we sat there out of the 87 degree heat we had 6 pickup trucks stop to talk to us because they had been hearing all about us walking down the road, they brought water, trail mix, watermelon and cookies. Thank you Susan for helping us so much during very poor internet connection while we are on the Navajo nation. We keep asking members of the navajo tribe to please help us write the grievances for native America to give to OWS to be added to the list of grievances." ~ Chris McKay
Shut Down San Onofre
  • Project landing web site: http://ShutDownSanOnofre.org
  • 30-sec TV Spot Catch it on MSNBC. Thank you Friends of the Earth!
  • On Wednesday, 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.
  • Next anti-nuke rally slated for April 29 (Sun) A29 San Onofre Protest and Rally to commemorate Chernobyl disaster of 1986-04-26. Can you help us make this event even larger than the last one?

The judge showed no mercy nor took into account his outstanding behavior since his arrest. He is allowed visitors twice a week for thirty minute periods each visit, which can be up to three people at once. We're trying to coordinate visits so he will always have visitors when he can, also he can recieve emails and snail mails, visiting info at VISITING AN INMATE AT SDCJ. More info at a FB "event" page.

  • Procter & Gamble Becomes 13th Company To Drop ALEC Joining a dozen other major corporations, Procter & Gamble decided not to rejoin the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) this year, according to a statement from Color Of Change, which launched a campaign against the shadowy right-wing front group behind state laws restricting access to the ballot and “stand your ground” gun laws.

  • Wal-Mart Bribery Probe: Why the Stakes Are So High The $24 million in illicit payments that Wal-Mart Wal-Mart Stores has been accused of making in Mexico amount to roughly two hours’ revenue for the world’s largest retailer. But if the allegations prove true, the payments could become huge issues for the company, its executives and directors. United States law is among the strictest in the world when it comes to paying bribes to foreign officials.

  • Six Arrested Picketing Wells Fargo Meeting Protesters gathered on a street corner near an inflated rat that had dollar bills coming from side pockets. They held signs that read: "99 percent take over, topple the 1 percent", and "Up with the people, down with the bankers." Police confirmed six arrests for trespassing.

  • Occupy movement targets Wells Fargo meeting in San Francisco Several hundred protesters marched to Wells Fargo Bank headquarters in San Francisco Tuesday and a few managed to gain access to the company's annual shareholder meeting and disrupt proceedings before being escorted out by police, San Francisco Gate reported.

  • What It Really Costs When Walmart Comes to Town The research, done by a Northwest community group, estimates that one Walmart store, which is set to open in a Washington neighborhood, will decrease the community's economic output over 20 years by an estimated $13 million. It also estimates the Walmart will cost the community an additional $14 million in lost wages over the next 20 years.

  • Mass sick day encouraged for May 1 Two Toronto groups are exhorting Canadian workers to call in sick en masse next Tuesday, on May Day, as a protest against "the attacks of the one per cent."

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?

  • 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.

  • 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.
