Occupy San Diego issues public appeal for bail money

October 15, 2011 |  9:36 am

After the arrest of two protesters Friday, the Occupy San Diego movement has added something to its list of requested donations: money for bail.

The full list is on its Facebook page.

While the Facebook page is open to the public, other communication between Occupy San Diego protesters has been encrypted to keep the police and media from reading it, according to Facebook postings.

Meanwhile, a march is planned for downtown San Diego at 11 a.m. Saturday as protesters vow not to be deterred by Friday's forcible removal of their tents and other structures from the City Hall plaza. Two men _ ages 21 and 39 _ were arrested for attempting to block police.

Also, an Occupy North County march is set for Saturday in the suburb of Encinitas.
