We just spoke to a member of Occupy San Diego at Civic Center Plaza, and they gave us the following schedule of fun and games for protesters today, Saturday, October 15th – all decided by the most recent General Assembly.
9:30 am – Logistics meeting at the Plaza
11:00 am – Some in Plaza will proceed to the Peace Rally at 6th and Grape.
11 – 12 noon – Peace activists will be bannering above I-5
1:00 pm – Occupy San Diego will march through Balboa Park to the World Beat Center along Park Blvd.
The World Beat Center and the Centro de la Raza are opening part of their facilities (restrooms) to Occupy San Diego. And this will be the site of our encampment tonight.
~ 2:00 pm – Occupy San Diego will then march to Civic Center Plaza along Park Boulevard and “B” Street, past the banks.
~ 3:00 pm – Rally at Civic Center Plaza
~ 4:00 pm – March starts which will end up back at the World Beat Center.
(This is the most recent schedule, which of course is subject to some change, but this is the basic framework.)
