Lots goin’ on  Thursday – and Friday, so we made up a special calendar for these two days of activism.

Thursday, January 19

San Diego County MoveOn is sponsoring this:

Demonstrate at Democratic Party HQ at 12:30 pm – 8340 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.

Maybe you’ve heard about the “sweetheart” deal that would let the biggest banks avoid a full investigation for their role in causing the housing crisis. Some in President Obama’s administration are supporting this bad deal.1 So we’re calling on the president to take bold action to hold Wall Street accountable and demand a real investigation.

To make sure the president gets our message, on Thursday we’re going directly to local Obama campaign offices to deliver more than 226,000 petition signatures supporting a full federal investigation of Wall Street. By taking just one hour out of your day, you’ll join with thousands more to make sure the president hears from the 99%.

 Occupy the Courts – Move to Amend – protest vs Citizens United

On Friday, 130 cities (and still counting) are holding rallies to participate in Occupy the Courts – a one-day protest at federal courthouses across the United States – including the US Supreme Court.  Here in San Diego:

When: January 20, 2012 at 12 Noon

Where: San Diego Federal Courthouse

Join us for speakers Mike Aguirre & Lori Saldana plus a performance by the “Women Occupy San Diego Occupellas” as part of the National Occupy the Courts day.

Inspired by Occupy Wall Street, and Dr. Cornel West, Move To Amend is planning bold action to mark the second anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC decision.

Occupy the Courts is a one day event at Federal courthouses across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012, to lead the charge against the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights.

In San Diego we will be at the San Diego Federal Courthouse, 880 Front Street, San Diego 92101. (Just south of Broadway)­.  There will be events throughout the day but we will have speakers and a performance by Women Occupy San Diego’s Occupellas in the 12-1 pm hour.

Speakers include former San Diego City Attorney Michael Aguirre, and Lori, Saldaña, a local educator who served six years in the California Legislature and who is running for Congress in district 52.

Vista Courthouse

We will demonstrate on Friday, January 20 from 8am till about 9:30am at the Vista Courthouse as part of Occupy the Courts, a nationwide protest against the Citizens United decision (graphic attached). See Occupy San Diego on Facebook or elsewhere on the web. Occupy Vista has invited the other North County Occupy groups to join us at the Vista courthouse, the only major courthouse in North County.

Roe v Wade Anniversary Rally and March

On Sunday, January 22, 2012, the Radical Feminists of Occupy San Diego are hosting the Roe v. Wade Anniversary Abortion and Reproductive Rights Rally, March, and Speak-Out.

A rally with speakers will be held from 1-1:30 in the Civic Center Plaza (or Freedom Plaza – nicknamed by Occupy San Diego), followed by a march downtown and an open-mic speakout.

FYI, OB Rag Readers,

I am going to jail in San Diego, California for speaking the truth of a fraud in public health policy that benefits the US Chamber of Commerce affiliates and has been aided by the compromised courts of California, primarily in the San Diego branch. Mayorial candidate Bonnie Dumanis knows all about it. Although this would be a massive fraud she could stop in her role as DA, she has done nothing to stop cronyism in the San Diego judicial branch that harms not only citizens of SD county, but citizens all across the US – while it tromples the Constitution of the United States to the benefit of Bonnie’s buddies.

At 9:30 AM PST, I am giving an interview on IAQ Radio. I am going to be discussing the real world danger of California’s Judicial Branch, Speak With One Voice approach to “justice”.

Episode 232

“Sharon Noonan Kramer has been found to be in contempt of court and will spend at least five days in jail this February. This week we will talk to Sharon and ask her to explain how things got to this point. According to Sharon her goal continues to be “to remove the false concept from policy; state & federal agencies and physicians’ offices that it has been scientifically proven WDB do not cause illness beyond the respiratory system in prior healthy people”. How did her passion for this cause lead to facing prison? Join us and find out.
