Radio Occupy Santa Barbara is a weekly public affairs radio program produced at KCSB-FM. We can be heard Thursday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. Addressing the issues of the Occupy Wall Street Movement, our program focuses on such concerns as wealth & income inequality, pervasive corporatism and social injustice. To date we have examined a diverse array of topics including the Santa Barbara Gang Injunction, Fukushima, Anti-war protests, Monsanto GMOs, fraudulent foreclosures, fracking, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the crisis of neoliberal capitalism.

Hosted by a closed Occupy Affinity Group, we are Kat Swift, William York Hyde, Dr. Matt, Michael Shanti & The Brigadier and we are independent media activists offering an alternative voice to the distorted, corporate-controlled, mainstream media. We adhere to the principles of a free and independent broadcast journalism and the maintenance of an informed citizenry empowered by radical participatory democracy. We encourage citizen journalists everywhere to actively re-occupy our disappearing 4th Estate.

Please join us in discussing the important topics of our day and help us make Radio Occupy Santa Barbara the people’s mic for all activists, artists, collectives, co-ops and non-profit organizations in Santa Barbara and nationwide. Everyone is welcome.

A Convention of States


, , ,

Citizens concerned for the future of their country, under a federal government that’s increasingly bloated, corrupt, reckless and invasive, have a constitutional option. We can call a Convention of States to return the country to its original vision of a limited federal government that is of, by and for the people.

Convention of States – It’s purpose to rearrange the government structure.

4 Major Abuses:
1) The Spending and Debt Crisis
2) The Regulatory Crisis
3) Congressional Attacks on State Sovereignty
4) Federal Takeover of Decision Making Process

UPDATED LOCATION 9/13: Sidewalk on Victoria at Telephone near the county government center at 4:40 p.m.



We’re living in the middle of a revolution against fossil fuel projects in America. The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline has taken the nation by storm as the images of Native American protectors facing down bulldozers, snarling dogs and armed police in an effort to stop a major fracked-oil pipeline have inspired millions around the world.1

Now, the protectors camped in the path of the Dakota Access pipeline have asked all of us — no matter where we live — to take action in solidarity with them and say #NoDAPL. Will you answer the call?
Solidarity actions are taking place on Tuesday all over the world.

By gathering at the Government Center, we honor the brave water and land protectors at Standing Rock, we consider how to educate people about divesting from fossil fuels, we pledge to show up against planetary destruction by dirty oil.

Please bring art and banners — and be sure to share on social media with #NoDAPL. Some sample messages for art include:
•    People over Pipelines
•    #NoDAPL
•    In Solidarity with Standing Rock
•    Citibank: Divest from Dirty Oil
•    Wells Fargo: Divest from Dirty Oil
