While Occupy Oakland has the support of a liberal community and national outrage on its side, and Occupy Los Angeles is basking in the shade at City Hall, Occupy San Diego is small and struggling against the conservative citizenry and lack of community support.

Occupy San Diego has started. The nascent group had planned to occupy the Civic Center Plaza in downtown San Diego, adjacent to San Diego City Hall, starting on October 7, 2011. But there was one hitch: A huge Yom Kippur service had been scheduled for that night in the same location. Rabbis asked Occupy to kindly accommodate the worshipers, which they did. The result, an even more effective march and event, with massive good will.
