[SDCPJ] Vigil Against Anti-LGBTQ Bulling, Friday, June 29, 5 p.m.

Every half an hour in the United States, a child is taking their life as a direct result of bullying. We can change that through education & understanding. As we inform the public about the FAIR Education Act and how it stops bullying, we also want to take time to recognize those who have brought us here. The dreams denied thousands of LGBTQ youth who never had the chance to live, happily, with their identity, expression, & beauty. We will let our colors fly & share stories on how we can change the lives of our upcoming generations for the better.

Join Canvass for a Cause & SAME to share your stories, find resources*, & protect the FAIR Education Act!

The FAIR Education Act is a bill signed by the California Governor in July 2010. This bill adds more civil rights history to high school history classes, teaching about movements and leaders who have brought equality to the people. It also reduces bullying rates by 15% in the first year! Unfortunately, this landmark legislation is under attack by the same groups that funded Proposition 8. Don't sign the CLASS Act! 

Let's gather together and rise up in voice and spirit for equality for all of our LGBTQ brothers, sisters & non-binary family.

[SDCPJ] MEDIA RELEASE - Oceanside Residents Ask City Council: SHUT DOWN San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant!


MEDIA RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

DATE:             June 25, 2012

FROM:            Concerned Residents

CONTACT:      Carol Jahnkow ▪ carolj@icg.org760 390-0775

                        Chrystal Coleman ▪ crysta1025@yahoo.com

 

Local Oceanside Residents Ask Oceanside City Council:  Is Our Community Prepared for an Accident at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Station (SONGS)?

 

Oceanside, CA - On Wednesday, June 27, 2012, residents from Oceanside will attend the Oceanside City Council meeting and request that the Council place the issue of the safety of their community should there be  an accident at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) on a future Council Agenda for in-depth discussion and presentation by experts.  The Nuclear Regulatory Commission met in San Clemente on June 18th and pledged that SONGS will remain shut down until a solution is found to fix the problem (a release of radioactive steam and unexpected, accelerated tube wear) which precipitated the emergency shutdown on January 31, 2012.

 

Concerned residents, living within the radius of danger from a potential nuclear accident at SONGS, have been appealing to their local city councils so that experts may address and inform government leaders about this critical safety issue.  Residents are also asking for clearly stated evacuation plans and routes. 

 

In San Diego and Orange Counties, the cities of Del Mar, Solana Beach, Vista, Encinitas, Huntington Beach, Irvine, San Clemente and Laguna Hills have been approached by local residents. Some city councils have taken action such as writing to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and passing resolutions asking for SONGS to be decommissioned or remain shut down until it is 100% safe to resume operation.

 

San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station is sited in a tsunami inundation zone and near numerous faults predicted to sustain 7.5 to 8.0 magnitude earthquakes. There have been no computer tests conducted at SONGS to determine if the facility can safely withstand 7.5 to 8.0 magnitude earthquakes. (The plant was designed to resist 6.0 quakes and upgraded to resist a 7.0 quake.) SONGS' 14 foot sea wall is inadequate to prevent destruction from a tsunami – horrifying pictures of which are seared into the collective consciousness from Japan's tsunami and nuclear crisis at Fukushima.  There are 4,000 tons of spent fuel sitting on site at San Onofre and 8 million people living within a 50 mile radius who will need to be evacuated in the event of a nuclear accident.

 

WHERE:          Oceanside City Council Chambers | 300 North Coast Highway |

Oceanside Civic Center (2nd floor)

 

WHEN:            Wednesday, June 27, 2012 – 5:00 p.m. |

[SDCPJ] LA Times comes out against San Onofre and other good news!

Editorial - Times finally takes a position against San Onofre!

San Onofre's cloudy future


"Nuclear energy has been a relatively cheap source of power and one that doesn't contribute to global warming, but the energy is not worth the long-term risk. As we have said before, California, with its network of earthquake faults and the environmental health of the ocean to consider, is the wrong place for such plants. Now is the perfect time for Edison, and the state as a whole, to begin the planning for a non-nuclear future. 

California energy officials plan for life without San Onofre
As officials make short-term plans to cope while the San Onofre plant is off line, they're also starting to think about the possibility of a nuclear-free future.

Awesome moments in history -- In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, "Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers." However, Switzer's boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.

[SDCPJ] Today! June 20: "The Interrupters"

The PRC & Nonviolent Peaceforce invite you to

Film Screening & Discussion of
"THE INTERRUPTERS"

Wed. June 20th @ 6 - 9 pm
3850 Westgate Pl, San Diego 92105

FREE and Open to the public!

5:45 pm -- Doors open, light refreshments
6:15 pm -- Film starts promptly
8:20 pm -- Discussion with Guests, 
   including Tariq Khamisa Foundation (TKF) & Commission on Gang Violence

ABOUT THE FILM
by Steve James and Alex Kotlowitz

During just one weekend in 2008, 37 people were shot in Chicago, seven of them fatally. This film captures a period in Chicago when it became a national symbol for city violence and was besieged by high-profile incidents, most notably the brutal beating of Derrion Albert, a Chicago High School student, whose death was caught on videotape.

The Interrupters is the moving story of three dedicated "violence interrupters"—Ameena Matthews, Cobe Williams and Eddie Bocanegra—who, with bravado, humility and even humor, work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once employed. Their work and their insights are informed by their own journeys, which, as each of them points out, defy easy characterization.

Shot over the course of a year out of Kartemquin Films in Chicago, The Interrupters follows Ameena, Eddie and Cobe as they attempt to intervene in situations before those situations turn violent: two brothers threatening to shoot each other; an angry teenage girl just home from prison; a young man heading down a warpath of revenge. The film captures not only the interrupters' work, but reveals their own inspired journeys from crime to hope and, ultimately, redemption. As they venture into their communities, they confront the destructive cycle of poverty, incarceration and joblessness -- and reveal the importance of economic opportunity, community cohesion and family ties.

Ultimately, this is a story of the power we all possess to make a positive difference in our community.

[SDCPJ] Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Teach-In WED 6-9p in Hillcrest


Here are details for the next Teach-In on the Trans-Pacific
Partnership tomorrow (Wed) evening, featuring Brooke Harper from
Global Trade Watch:

Wednesday
6:00pm until 9:00pm
Canvas for a Cause
Join Canvas for A Cause, WOSD, and Occupy San Diego as we host our
third in a series of teach-outs/discussions on the TPP, Trans Pacific
Partnership with Brooke Harper from Global Trade Watch

Address: 3705 10th Ave, San Diego.

"From July 2 to July 10, the political leaders of the Pacific Rim
nations are meeting in San Diego to turn the Pacific Ocean and its
peoples into a giant privatized corporate lake characterized by non-
union workers, Wal-Mart supply chain feeders, poisoned, landless
agricultural laborers, a dying biodiversity, and rising, drowning sea
levels. We cannot and will not let this happen.

The TPP meeting is officially referred to as the 13th Round of the
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Talks. The Trans Pacific Partnership
would create a super-treaty which would jeopardize the sovereignty of
the nations involved by giving that power to large corporations like
Wal Mart, Warners, Sony, BP, JP Morgan, AIG, Veoilia, and Monsanto.

There are currently 9 nations involved: US, New Zealand, Australia,
Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Japan, Canada
and Mexico have shown interest.
The economic power of this group is more than 40% larger than the 27-
nation European Union.
The TPP would offshore millions of good-paying jobs to low-wage
nations and under-cut working conditions globally increasing
unemployment and union labors.
Allow foreign firms the ability to acquire land, natural resources,
and factories without government reviews
USTR (US Trade Representatives) are pushing for TPP countries to
expand pharmaceutical monopoly protections and institute longer
patents that will decrease access to affordable medications
The U.S. would agree to waive Buy America procurement policies for all
of the firms operating in the TPP countries
Limit food GMO labeling and allow the import of goods that do not meet
US safe standards.
Excessive copyright rights and enforcement which would affect the
ability of creators to create content, stifle innovative technological
products, and that ability of users to use content in new ways.
Would institute CISPA like regulations and "3 strikes" internet
measures kicking people off the internet after committing three
infringement violations.
It would roll back Wall Street, and prohibit ban on risky financial
services."
