Rules Committee meeting, San Diego City Council
A Proposed Amendment to the San Diego City Charter:
A Commission on Police Practices
Proposed by Women Occupy San Diego
The community doesn’t trust police oversight where the police investigate themselves.
We need a strong Commission that:
- Is Independent, to replace the current Review Board appointed by the Mayor.
- Provides Independent Investigators for ALL complaints, instead of relying on SDPD Internal Affairs investigation.
- Has Independent Legal Counsel instead of City Attorney.
- Has Subpoena Power for civilian witnesses instead of none.
- Receives and reviews all complaints and decides disposition.

UPDATE: June 27, 2018, 10:00 AM ET
A federal judge ruled against Trump’s family separation policy—but we know the administration will fight back. We have momentum and we cannot slow down now since the the court ruling alone isn’t enough and could be overturned. Our mobilization, in over 600 locations around the country and still growing, is critical to showing the widespread public demand for just immigration policies—because families belong together … and free!

More About Che Café
The Che Café is a worker co-operative, social center and live music venue located on the University of California San Diego campus. Founded in 1980 by several UC San Diego students, the name “Che” in “Che Café” is not only a nod to the late Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara, but is also a backronym for ” Cheap Healthy Eats”.
During the 1980s, Che Café Collective members began to host reggae and punk rock shows, and in the 1990s, the space became an internationally recognized staple of the hardcore/punk.post-punk/indie rock scene.
Today, the Che operates primarily as a venue for a variety of musical genres, many based around the DIY ethic, and is an on-and-off again vegan cafe and catering operation. It also acts as a resource for the music and art departments on campus through hosting art shows, performances and film screenings.

“Black Snake Killaz” is a feature-length documentary about the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline. This film explores actions taken by water protectors to stop the construction of the oil pipeline and highlights actions taken by law enforcement, military, and corporate mercenaries to quell the months-long protest. The film timelines the historical events that unfolded in Standing Rock throughout 2016. Although the Dakota Access Pipeline is completed, the impact of the movement will be long-lasting. As fossil fuel extraction projects continue to impact some of the most vulnerable communities throughout the United States of America, the importance of the water protectors’ story grows.
