Occupy Update!

Police force removal of U.S. Flag due to "dangerous" pole. Law says in public assemblies, no metal poles can be used; wooden sticks must be no thicker than 1/4" and no wider than 1/2"
(meanwhile police allowed open-carry protestors to carry long metal rifles in October rally in PB)

NOTICE TO MEDIA / DISCLAIMER
Occupy San Diego is comprised of many people
with diverse opinions. This email does not provide
the official position of Occupy San Diego, but is
compiled for the use of supporters and occupiers
by a number of volunteers.
News Media that may subscribe to this email blast
should confirm all information from other sources.

NEWS

  • Police play tug-o-war over U.S. Flag at Civic Center Plaza
    • Remove the flag that has been a fixture of the occupation for months. See the complete story here: American flag, a symbol of the occupation?
    • Video: police harassing vet with flag
    • Video: Police confiscate flag from Occupy SD protest
    • March schedule for Friday, Dec. 23 in an urgent email blast. About 100 people showed up, many with U.S. Flags, some with other flags. There was a United Nations Flag, a Veterans For Peace flag and a "corporate America" flag (stars are corporate logos).
    • Some flags were flown upside down, signaling distress. It is a common mistake to assume that is is disrespectful to fly a flag upside down. It is only means to indicate that the person flying it is in distress and needs help. Our nation is in distress, I think we can agree on that.
    • Some flags were equipped with standard metal (OMG) poles, like the $10 ones from Home Depot. Police said they would not arrest people for that during this event. How kind of them.
    • OSD marched to Federal Building at 5:30pm.
    • Terri Best said: If the pole was the target, why did the police not just take the pole? No opportunity was given to remove the flag. The Mayor of San Diego is using the police department to further his political agenda: "Shut down Occupy San Diego before the election year."

  • Barricades have been removed from around Freedom Plaza.

  • Occupy San Diego still reels from inappropriate arrests on Dec. 22.
    • Video of Raid and Arrests at Freedom Plaza. Three were arrested in this video. Andrew Fischer (AKA "Fish") was arrested at about 6am. One of them was choked and another was stomped on. http://youtu.be/Fu3oVBxMbFc
    • See more info here: Occupy San Diego Dec 22 Arrests, including a frame-by-frame analysis of out-of-control SDPD officers as they nearly rip Chris's head off. You have to see this to believe it.

Upcoming Events

  • 17 Jan 2012 - Million tent protest in Washington D.C. -- OSD to travel to OD.C. to be part of the 1 million tent protest. Group to Greyhound out, have great group discussions, enjoy the fun, bring a tent, a smile and warm stuff. Time to show the Government that we are not the enemy, the N.D.A.A. bill is unconstitutional and the people demand the change we need to improve all of society, not just the top 1%. The 99% are coming to D.C. and you can too. Facebook Event
    • DONATE To help people travel from Occupy San Diego to Occupy D.C. -- Click Here
      This money will be used to help people that could not really afford to do this but have gone above and beyond normal participation. There are many 24/7 occupiers that really want to go but can not come up with funds for this, at least until the 1st of the year which will be to late.
