 Activist Calendar EVENTS at bottom of page:  

In the age of Trump is there really much to be thankful for?  When the Neanderthals are the majority in the House of Representatives and dominate so much of the body politics, can we feel thankful?

On behalf of the 50+ volunteers and the countless participants in Activist San Diego & KNSJ we are deeply thankful that you have supported and sustained us as we enter our 20th the year as an Information, Communications and Mobilization hub!

First and foremost we are thankful to the Indigenous peoples of this continent on whose land we reside. We are thankful for the continuing lessons that have arisen this last year as a result of the resistance movement at Standing Rock. May Thanksgiving become Native American thankfulness day.

In 2017 we are thankful for the millions of women who rose up to march in some of the most powerful expressions of dissent that this country has ever known. We are thankful that abusers are being exposed everyday in the press. Open the floodgates and wash away misogyny.

We are thankful that the Charlottesville atrocities have made white supremacy a national talking point, which must be confronted and understood as part of the fabric of the American legacy. We are thankful that the President exposed himself as an ally of white supremacy and the fascists by saying "there are good people among them". Thankfully his blunder makes our organizing work easier.

We are thankful that there is a new current within the military that doesn't want another war for empire; hopefully willing to speak out and even disobey a president bent on nuclear annihilation of his chosen enemies. We are thankful for the fruits of the peace movement. Peace is beginning to look like a better option than endless war. Many Americans now refuse to be blinded by patriotic posturing in the name of "America First".

We are thankful that Mexicans are refusing to pay for a wall to divide humanity.

We are thankful for the growing number of Americans who are welcoming immigrants, documented or not. We are thankful that our resistance movement will defend the Dreamers. We are thankful that sanctuary has become part of our vocabulary.

We are thankful that tens of thousands rose up around the US, as they did in San Diego, to denounce the Muslim ban as a crude, racist ploy.

We are thankful that those who want to destroy socialized healthcare, Medicare, and Welfare are so divided that they can't pass a single bill in the Congress that they control.

We are thankful that black lives matter and that millions of fellow Americans, who are not black or brown, Asian or Native are supportive. We are thankful for all those building racial justice coalitions saying in a unified voice "this too must end".

We are thankful for those who do the ongoing work for systemic change, joining and invigorating organizations and campaigns.

We are thankful that Bernie revealed the power of millions. We are thankful for the worldwide movement for sustainability to end the climate chaos. We realize that we are the only ones who can lead the planet away from the precipice; a new world is possible, if we unite the visionaries.

We are thankful that you are still reading this greeting with a firm determination to support the struggle for social and racial justice, and that you will do your part.

We are thankful that Community Radio KNSJ 89.1 FM has survived its first few years and is exposing San Diegan to information that has been left out of the broadcast media for decades. We are thankful for your membership and support as we aspire to build an extraordinary, multimedia portal of progressive information to transform the region.

We are thankful that hundreds marched with us after the 'elections', the hundreds joined us at our Counter-Inaugural Ball, that thousands joined to the immigrant rights march and the tax day march, that 800 filled the hall to greet Amy Goodman on behalf of KNSJ, that countless activists attended organizing meetings to build multi-racial unity and create an ongoing Radial Justice Coalition.

We are thankful that we are part of your community of consciousness and resistance... and that every day you do something intelligent to put your finger on the scales of justice.

We are thankful to have a vibrant network of family and friends with whom to celebrate the beauty of life, always thinking about those who do not have such good fortune so we can expand our human family.

We are thankful that you pay attention to the issues and causes which are vital to preserving the vestiges of democracy. We will do our part... Please visit us at and

Stay in touch, stay involved, stay connected and be thankful that we have each other in this most critical junction in in American history.

We are thankful for you.

Take Action: No Unconstitutional Strike against North Korea

Facebook Twitter Addthis

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), a veteran of the Korean War that took place in the 1950s, has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives to stop an unconstitutional attack against North Korea.

The bill, H.R. 4140, would prohibit the president from launching a first strike against North Korea without congressional approval. The bill also calls on the president to "initiate negotiations designed to achieve a diplomatic agreement to halt and eventually reverse North Korea's nuclear and missile pursuits."

The bill currently has 61 co-sponsors, and more are urgently needed. Please take a moment to write your representative about H.R. 4140.

If your representative is already a co-sponsor, your message template will be thanking them for having taken action.

If your representative is not yet a co-sponsor, your message template will ask them to co-sponsor this important legislation.

50 Reasons Why You Need to Read NO NUDE SWIMMING - Introducing Robert Gottlieb

This is a radio show 

1 PM to 3 PM Pacific Sunday 12 November 2017

Call in number 310-861-2349

A retired attorney (mostly tired and quit), Robert Gottlieb maintained a private practice in Los Angeles and San Diego for a total of 36 years.

Robert Gottlieb

Robert began his general practice focusing primarily on business clients, and in the 1980s began representing insurance company clients. His career as a lawyer provides the backdrop of experience against which he has painted with a broad stroke the disillusionment and exhaustion that haunt the majority of attorneys practicing today.

Born in Los Angeles, Robert lived most of his early life in the San Fernando Valley. He attended public school and graduated from law school in Los Angeles.

Early in his days as a practicing attorney, Robert began making and saving notes involving situations with clients, prospective clients, courtroom proceedings, and the humorous and often absurd stories related to him by other attorneys. It didn’t take long to realize that the practice of law, like any other business, is about people much more than about the law itself.

In the mid- to late 1990s, Robert began to create narratives from hi notes. No Nude Swimming is his first novel.

The main character in his novel is attorney Sam Weisman. His wife wants a divorce, and his law practice is threatened by a hostile takeover. Pulled one way by two hilarious con artists who plan to steal his dreams, and another by his family and the real estate professional who's worked her way into his heart, Sam struggles to hold onto his sanity, his self-esteem, and the woman he loves. Grasping the end of his rope in one hand and the end of his rainbow in the other, he teeters between the abyss ... and the pot of gold!

Help Us Fight Bullies

Silence Bullies supports educational programs for low-income, disadvantaged children, and ALL young people.
Bullying in Numbers:
Over 67% of students believe schools respond poorly to bullying.
71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.
90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims.
1 in 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying.
168,000 school children miss school yearly due to bullying.

For Health and Safety Professionals: Bullying Prevention and Intervention
Health and safety professionals and volunteers are disturbed about the physical and psychosocial harm experienced by many youths as a result of bullying by their peers. Bullying among children is aggressive behavior that is persistent, intentional and involves an imbalance of power or strength. Bullying can take many forms such as: hitting or punching (physical bullying); teasing or name-calling (verbal bullying); intimidation through gestures or social exclusion (nonverbal bullying or emotional bullying); and sending insulting messages by e-mail (cyberbullying). There is no one single cause of bullying among children. Rather, individual, family, peer, school, and community factors can place a young person at risk for bullying his or her peers.

Effects Of Bullying
Bullying can be a sign of other serious antisocial and/or violent behavior. Youth who frequently bully their peers are more likely than others to:
·         Get into frequent fights
·         Be injured in a fight
·         Vandalize property
·         Steal property
·         Smoke
·         Use illicit substances
·         Be truant from school
·         Drop out of school
·         Carry a weapon Youth who are the targets of bullying behavior may exhibit signs of:
·         Lower self-esteem
·         Feelings of fear
·         School phobia and absenteeism
·         Nightmares and sleeplessness
·         Depression and anxiety

Thoughts of suicide Research that looks at the full range of bullying behaviors is finding that the incidence of bullying in the United States is widespread and its consequences more enduring than suspected. In a nationally representative survey of school children, nearly 30 percent reported moderate and more frequent involvement in having been bullied, in bullying or both within the school year. Whether they are perpetrators or targets of bullying, these children face difficulties adjusting to their environments, socially and emotionally.
