CELEBRATE NEW YEARS EVE with Occupy SD to prevent POLICE STATE TACTICS in 2012

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Occupy the New Year ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Despite what you might hear on the corporate-owned news:

* The occupation continues, around the clock.
* PLEASE COME DOWN when you can and help with numbers. This is your
true vote. Stay at home = vote against 99%.
* Tents and almost everything is now being restricted by the police.
* Food is needed -- we no longer have a food table, so you'll have to
play it by ear.
* We will not be denied our constitutional right to assemble and speak!
* Many Teach-ins on Sunday!

We need you to join us in a show of strong support for our ideas. Show the city owners and forces of repression that they can't evict the struggle for social justice!

· Media committee sponsored a teach-in on foswiki (free open source wiki) which is used by the Citizens Oversight web site (this site).
o Will be archiving historical media. If you have any videos, etc. please consider sending them in and/or learning to catalog them yourself.
o Contact raylutz@citizensoversight.org if you want to be added to the team to help.
o 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.
o 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.
o Terms will be defined: Demands, issues, goals, tactics, strategies, solutions so we can use these correctly. Ray Lutz will provide a paper on this.
o Each member of Demands Committee will summarize and present each demands document.
o Will collect demands for each issue and then proposed teach-ins and discussions on each one.
o 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.
