After the arrest of two Occupy San Diego protesters on Friday, the Southern California movement added a new request to its list of donations: money for bail. The city is just one of many listed on an interactive world map published by Mother Jones magazine.
A full list is available on the Occupy San Diego website. Among the other items needed are donated funds to support Livestream broadcasts, online sites, food, water, and other items at the occupation site at the San Diego Civic Center.
If you don’t have a protest nearby, there are many other Occupy America movements that could use donations. Many Occupy locations accept donations through Pay Pal.
Like many other Occupy Facebook pages, the site is open to the public to facilitate communication between Occupy San Diego protesters. The site has been encrypted to prevent the police and media from reading it, according to their postings.
Meanwhile, a march is planned for downtown San Diego at 11 a.m. Saturday as protesters vow not to be deterred by Friday’s forcible removal of their tents and other structures from the City Hall plaza. Two men _ ages 21 and 39 _ were arrested for attempting to block police.
An Occupy North San Diego County, a conservative enclave of Southern California, march is set for Saturday in the Encinitas suburb.
