[SDCPJ] San Diego Museum Rejects Golden Rule’s Request to Dock, Cites Ketch’s ‘Political Agenda’

The Golden Rule is renowned for its 1958 voyage to Marshall Island in an attempt to halt atmospheric nuclear weapons tests. The crew was arrested in Hawaii before it reached its destination. However, the act became a model for future peace activists and directly inspired the organization Greenpeace. The newly restored ketch is now known as the world's first peace vessel. The restoration project was financed by Veterans for Peace, and the organization hopes to have the ship docked somewhere in San Diego by early August for their annual convention

[SDCPJ] This Sat 6/27 ~ Conversation on Immigration & Borders

Each month the Peace Resource Center is hosting a conversation time to come together to talk about issues in our communities, what we know and can learn, and how we can act to make a better world.

Community Conversations Series
Last Saturdays from 10 am - 12 noon
@ PRC, 3850 Westgate Place, 92105
June 27th topic = IMMIGRATION & BORDERS

As a starting point, we'll review "10 Myths" of immigration (see *reference below) and impressions from the recent Border Reality Visit (co-hosted June 7th). 

Questions to explore are:
- What is our understanding/experience of this issue?
- Why do we care? How does it relate to our communities?
- What change is needed and how can we do it?

"10 Facts You Didn't Know about Immigration and the Undocumented"
by Aviva Chomsky, May 2014, Beacon Broadside

~~ About this Conversation Series ~~

"PRISMS" are a way to look at interconnection of issues, related to equity, culture/norms, and barriers to change. The initials stand for: Poverty - Race - Immigration - Spirituality - Militarism - Sustainability.

What do YOU care about?
Why do you ACT?
How can we SUPPORT you?

We'll gather inside our space at the Friends Center, enjoy light refreshments, talk about current issues, build community, as well as brainstorm together about what matters and our next steps, asking questions, planning new possibilities, and linking the past to the present and future… for PEACE & JUSTICE!

[SDCPJ] FW: Thurs, 6/28 - From San Quintin to Baltimore

-please forward widely-
Join us for a Socialist Worker forum
Thurs., June 25, 6pm
From San Quintín to Baltimore
Fighting back against state violence and neoliberalism

City Heights Recreation Center
4380 Landis St., San Diego 92015

Workers throughout the world are fighting back against neoliberal austerity and racist violence.

The rebellion in Baltimore following the police murder of Freddy Gray led to homicide indictments against six police officers.

In San Quintin, not far from San Diego in Baja California, 15,000 farm workers struck for two months against starvation wages, finally winning concessions from the growers and the Mexican government.

Join us for a Socialist Worker forum to to learn more about these fightbacks, and how socialists can organize for solidarity and workers power.

[SDCPJ] Fwd: New CPI/SDSU study finds wage theft in San Diego area restaurants

Begin forwarded message:

From: "Clare Crawford, Center on Policy Initiatives" <>
Date: June 17, 2015, 7:00
Subject: Shorted: New CPI/SDSU study finds wage theft in San Diego area restaurants


Center on Policy Initiatives


Yesterday CPI and San Diego State University released a new study on workplace conditions in the San Diego restaurant industry. The findings should be of concern to anyone who works or eats in restaurants.

In the study, Shorted: Wage Theft, Time Theft and Discrimination in San Diego County Restaurant Jobs, we surveyed 337 employees of all kinds of restaurants, from fast food to fine dining, throughout the San Diego region. More than three-quarters of them reported their employers have illegally shorted them on wages or tips. A third said it happens on a regular basis.

You can download the report, watch the press conference, and see initial media coverage at

Wage theft means withholding pay that is legally due to employees. The main forms reported in the survey were:

  • Requiring unpaid off-the-clock work before or after shifts,
  • Failing to pay overtime rates,
  • Deducting from paychecks for damages or cash register shortages,
  • Paying less than minimum wage,
  • Sending workers home early without compensation,
  • Diverting any part of workers' tips to managers.

We also found other legal violations, such as preventing meal breaks or rest breaks, and widespread scheduling practices that rob employees of their personal time.

This pilot study indicates a dire need for more research into the problems reported by San Diegans employed in the restaurant industry, and for stronger enforcement of the laws on the books. Our findings are consistent with other wage theft studies in Los Angeles and across the state of California that have identified the restaurant industry as one of the worst violators.

Our report includes specific information on existing laws regarding wages and breaks, and we hope it will help inform employees of their rights. Please help us get the word out by sharing the report:, and in Spanish at

We also invite you to a community forum where the research team will discuss the findings. The presentation is at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 6, with pizza provided at 5:30. It will be at the Employee Rights Center, 4265 Fairmount Avenue, Suite 210, in San Diego.

Thanks for your support of CPI.

[SDCPJ] United States of ALEC? find out more at Women Occupy Movie Night June 24

"Moyers & Company presents "United States of ALEC," a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of — ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a "nonpartisan public-private partnership". But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.

Using interviews, documents, and field reporting, the episode explores ALEC's self-serving machine at work, acting in a way one Wisconsin politician describes as "a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests."

In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers — each accomplished without the public ever knowing who's behind it.

"All of us here are very familiar with ALEC and the influence that ALEC has with many of the [legislative] members," says Arizona State Senator Steve Farley. "Corporations have the right to present their arguments, but they don't have the right to do it secretly."

"United States of ALEC" is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report."                           --
