Occupy San Diego Coverage – the Plan

Today I am going to downtown San Diego in order to document the sympathy occupy wall street protest that is planned for today, October 7th, at 4:30 pm. I will be there for roughly two to three hours with the intention to take photos and possibly video in the role of an outside observer.

Full disclosure: I am a tea party sympathizer and a independent minded conservative. However- today I will be an observer and attempt to provide broad, contextual coverage of events as they take place. I am not attending to incite or to provoke, but instead to answer some questions:

  • Who is behind the event?
  • Who will actually attend? (in broad terms, not specific persons)
  • How many will attend?
  • What will be the agreed upon central message?
  • Will the protesters be civil?
I encourage people who wish to protest to do so, and celebrate the exercising of their constitutional rights. That said, effective protesters are the ones who are non violent, rational, and respectful in expressing their views. I sincerely hope that today’s protests live up to these expectations.
