Stop Blackwater Protest/Rally – Tuesday, June 17, 10 a.m.
San Diego Federal Courthouse, 880 Front St. (downtown San Diego/Front and Broadway)
Blackwater abused the City of San Diego’s permitting process with a disgusting series of steps shielding their activities from public scrutiny. Then, when their subterfuge was discovered, they circumvented the City by going to a Federal judge–all to gain a foothold in Otay Mesa, for their new training facility at the border.
A Federal court hearing was held on the issue on May 30, 2008, followed by a Temporary Restraining Order issued on June 4, 2008, which forced the City of San Diego to grant Blackwater an occupancy permit for the Otay Mesa facility.
A FOLLOW UP HEARING WILL BE HELD IN SAN DIEGO FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT ON TUESDAY, JUNE 17, AT 10:30AM.
WE WILL BE PROTESTING STARTING AT 10AM, 880 Front Street, downtown San Diego (Broadway and Front Street). Bring Signs, etc. (Park in Horton Plaza, free with kiosk validation)
CITY ATTORNEY MIKE AGUIRRE WILL BE ARGUING THE CASE FOR THE CITY BEFORE JUDGE MARILYN HUFF, APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT’S FATHER.
Note: If you wish to enter thecourt hearing, you must not have signs, T-shirts, or other expressive gear.
