Occupy San Diego has lots of friends and supporters. Over this past two week period, they’ve come out with donations and statements of support. This has been great!
But right now – Occupy San Diego NEEDS HELP!
If you support us – then we need you to get on the phone immediately. We need you to call the Mayor of San Diego and the City Council immediately. We need you to tell them – tell them – not ask – to get the police off the backs of the activists of Occupy San Diego!
The police have blocked us every time we turn around. They threw us out of Tuna Park, they tried to remove us from the Civic Center Plaza, they made it unbearable to be at 6th and Elm, and they’re putting pressure on us right now about removing our gear and supplies from the World Beat Center in Balboa Park which came to our rescue a couple days ago.
We are NOT GOING AWAY! You know that, we know that. But the political establishment in this town has not realized this yet. In other cities the politicians have welcomed the demonstrators and have helped arrange local parks where they can do their occupy thing.
We have yet to have been approached by any high-ranking politicians, either from the City, County or State. They pretend that they are not listening to us and they really want us just to go away. But we are not going away.
We have been peaceful and non-violent. The police in general have also, but there’s been a couple of moments they were not. And they obey the political hierarchy (Mayor Jerry Sanders).
So, please, call your favorite politician and/or community / labor leader. We need pressure on the political establishment of San Diego – both City and County – IMMEDIATELY.
