Sebastopol is bracing for an Occupy Sebastopol event on Saturday, when demonstrators plan to take over the town plaza.

The event was announced on fliers distributed around the city on Wednesday and Thursday and at online social media sites.

The City Council is holding a special meeting from 3 to 5 p.m. today {Youth Annex, 425 Morris Street Sebastopol} to discuss the demonstration and the potential impacts on public safety, health and welfare...


Thanks for sending this Mary.

Interesting times.

As I said in my last message; "extra-ordinary times, call for extra-ordinary ordinances."

For starters Public Works will need to shut off the sprinklers, which should be done when it rains anyway.

FYI; I have advocated for our region to focus on the Federal, State & County gov, and County seat, Santa Rosa, not each city.

There is a lot of what the Occupy is advocating for, which helps cities like Sebastopol.

I suggest the Sebastopol City Council follow the lead of Santa Rosa.

 Please forward this message, and my last to them, the City Manager and Lawyer, Fire and Police Chiefs.

Good luck sorting it out.

May peace prevail for all.

Is it better to have regional Occupy of each city, or focus on the bigger picture?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
