Occupy San Diego

DSA involvement

According to report from San Diego Democratic Socialists of America, members Herb Shore and Virginia Franco on October 16, 2011, on Occupy San Diego;[1]

We had a successful march and rally a week ago, October 7, with a DSA contingent of about seven people, taking turns carrying the DSA banner. The march was from a downtown SD park to Civic Center. It was huge for this city's standards—an impressive 1500 marchers. We passed out lots of copies of the DSA Fact Sheet on the federal budget. A couple of DSAers, Pam Barratt and Virginia Franco spent this first night 'al fresco', with no tent.
Since the first march and rally, DSA SD has participated with food donations two more times to the occupiers at Civic Center. Last night, we contributed 144 brownies at about 10:00 PM and displayed a sign. Although, late evening, we managed to show a sign expressing the SEBOR cover statement, and passing out the pamphlets. Someone mentioned we were going to be on their Facebook page. One young leadership occupier expressed interest in DSA, and said she would mail the brochure to her father in NYC, an economic conservative.
