Occupy Update!


During the first week of our occupation... we didn't know how good we had it. Food table at the far side of the plaza, medical tent to the right of the picture, art in the middle of this picture. The tents shown here represent about 1/3 of the tents in the plaza. The encampment was sanitary and safe. Our sanitation committee picked up the trash twice a day. Fed hundreds of homeless by the food committee. Never forget it!

NEWS

  • Media committee sponsored a teach-in on foswiki (free open source wiki) which is used by the Citizens Oversight web site (this site).
    • Will be archiving historical media. If you have any videos, etc. please consider sending them in and/or learning to catalog them yourself.
    • Contact raylutz@citizensoversight.org if you want to be added to the team to help.
    • More teach-ins will be scheduled in the future. Still need a good place to do this. Panera Bread is our best option for the downtown area. Need wifi and large enough for projector and screen would help.
    • Will be starting a project to list all arrested persons, their court date, etc. and a police ids and mug shots database. Each incident (raid, for example) can include who was arrested and police involved. Will also include a database of complaints. The more organized we are the harder it will be for the police to abuse our rights.
  • Demands Committee met and will be placing various documents from various sources that list demands on the project page.
    • Terms will be defined: Demands, issues, goals, tactics, strategies, solutions so we can use these correctly. Ray Lutz will provide a paper on this.
    • Each member of Demands Committee will summarize and present each demands document.
    • Will collect demands for each issue and then proposed teach-ins and discussions on each one.
    • Direct Action committee may find ideas for action related to each issue.
  • From report at the GA, direct action committee discussed actions to highlight banking irregularities.
  • Don't forget: we have a unified Calendar for Occupy San Diego! It can be found here: Occupy San Diego Calendar. Events are added to Occupy San Diego Events so they appear on the calendar and in this email blast.
