F.T.P.
Fuck the Police
Film the Police
Fight the Power
Free the People
Feed the Poor
Fix the Poverty
Follow the Pabst
Five Topping PIZZA!
Whatever! Come up with your own acronym for F.T.P! So long as the by-product is empowerment.
The demonstration on the night of Saturday, February 11 totaled about 30 activists marching through Gaslamp District of San Diego was peaceful in nature and surprisingly, garnered a good amount of outside support from the downtown socialites. I say “surprisingly” because of the verb, FUCK.
“No Justice, No Peace…FUCK THE POLICE!”
But by the end, there were more people in the march than what it started with, and the vibe at Childrens Park was positive. And although the march was not a sanctioned Occupy event, awareness was still brought to the table.
However controversial, we must remember that these demonstrations stem from somewhere.
Whatever the acronym, the march embodies struggle, an oppression towards people who’ve been disenfranchised.
The 99 is a diverse group. Let us embrace our diversity of people and embrace our diversity of tactics. We are all in this together….Republican, Democrat, Feminists, Anarchists…
OCCUPY!

During the day, the police effectively built a police line to contain protesters from the Capitol on January 17 for Occupy Congress.  In the case of the Supreme Court, the Police were not prepared to deflect protesters as they stormed up the Supreme Court on an evening march that commenced at the Capitol and ended at the White House.

#J07 Three Month Anniversary March on Flickr.Via Flickr:Occupy San Diego | Three Month Anniversary
Did I really believe, or was I ever prepared to be here after three months? I don’t think any of us were. Not us, not the city, not the nation, or the world.
But we are…and that in itself is an accomplishment.
People say the numbers are dwindling, and for them, that translates to losing. Us, as long as we are STILL HERE….we are winning. Simple as that.
This organic movement is less than four months old. San Diego just celebrated its three month anniversary. We are infantile!
So how long will we do this for? Another 3 months? 2 more years? A decade?
If we can sustain for this long, there should be no reason to believe that we cant go on FORRREVER!
We’ve yet to crack the surface. There’s so much potential.
