6:04 am
can work with the city, then we can get more and more organized. i was in the military 20 years. i know you can have a save and sanitary field kitchen. it's absolutely possible. >> as part of that understanding the department of public works came through and steam cleaned the concrete under half the occupy camp. but first the occupiers moved all the tents ahead of the city crews. >> we did that because we had the confidence that we could move back and that there wasn't going to be action, they weren't going to -- and, there was no talk about you can't have tents or the tents are a problem. >> filmmaker michael moore made a quick appearance at the camp just before hundreds of marchers took to the streets in when is becoming a regular event in san francisco. jerry sellness stayed behind manning the medical tent. he said the content of the tent is thanks to donations from the public, including people like this engineer. he supports the occupy group because he's concerned about the influence corporations have in the united states. >> coming from a country of like india where, you know, we experience the british colonialism, which is nothing

6:06 am
arrests were made. and in san jose a handful of occupy campers remained outside city hall. one of them, shawn o'kelley, is still on top of the building. he's been up there since last monday. police say they aren't going to force him down because of safety concerns. city workers have closed the access point that o'kelley used to reach the rooftop where he is now camping. security was extremely tight in san jose at the funeral of hell's angel member. he was murdered during services for another murdered member of the club two weeks ago. steven tausan died after being shot at the october 15th burial of local chapter president jeffrey pettigrew. police continue to search for steve ruiz, the man they believe shot tausan. we have the story from san jose. >> it was the second massive

6:09 am

6:32 am
>> no open flame, no propane tanks, the car batteries are not being used properly. >> this is the fire chief and this is a protester. >> we are trying to be in compliance with it. public health and safety are the same concerns that have been raised by officials through the decades, every time demonstrators occupy city property. >> ♪ i'm sleeping in my tent when the cops come with bad intent ♪ >> they were the same concerns at a huge tent city that sprouted at the civic center in the late 1980s. hundreds of homeless people occupied the plaza for months. art agnos was mayor at the time. >> there were some unsafe periods. there may have been some unsanitary things. it wasn't clean. >> there was mounting criticism by businesses in the city and tourist officials. >> people wanted them out of sight and out of mind. >> the mayor was burned in effigy when he ordered them to
6:33 am
tear down the camp in 1989. by then he had 500 new housing units for the homeless. >> i order them evicted and we had social workers working with the police to accomplish that. >> many old-timers say there are more parallels between occupy sf and the age vigil and encampment in 1985 that lasted ten years. protesters were angry at the inaction of the federal government towards the growing a.i.d.s. epidemic. they took over the u. n. plaza just across the street from the civic center. the supervisor david compose. >> not only people camping out, but you had tarps and tents, people capping out. >> it became the longest running civil disobedience. two weeks police came into justin herman plaza and tore down occupy sfs tarps. marshals tried unsuccessfully to do the same at the un plaza. politicians appeared to support their support.
6:34 am
the same happened at the a.i.d.s. vigil. >> it became a very strong movement that was reinforced by members of the board of supervisors, mayors like me. >> the encampment ended in 1995 when fierce storms blew away the tents. vic lee, abc7 news. >> in just a few days san francisco voters will have an opportunity to weigh in on an issue that cities all over the country are grappling with, the financial crisis involving city employee pensions. there are dueling reform measures on san francisco's ballot. >> about 26,000 people work in san francisco's city government. when they retire they are entitled to pension. this year the city is expected to spend about $422 million on employee pension costs. by 2014 that is expected to skyrocket to $800 million. that's money not spent on schools, pothole repairs or social programs. analysts say it's driving the city toward disaster. >> your alternative is to declare bankruptcy. >> it's a crucial area that has to be reformed. >> san francisco's 2,009-2010
6:35 am
civil grand jury warned what it called the pension tsunami. there are more than 23,000 retirees, according to their report, just over 3200 of them are receiving $75,000 or more in pensions each year. retirement systems officials say the vast majority of the rest average $34,000 a year. >> when the economy was booming and the pension system flourished on their investments and stocks and real estate, the payouts could be supported. but not now. public defender, jeff, was on last year's ballot to require greater sacrifice from employees. but a push back from labor defeated the measure. this year as mayoral candidate he's back with what he calls son of prop b, proposition d. of most employees currently consider 7.5% of their paychecks toward their future retirement.
6:36 am
prop d changes that based on how much an individual worker is making. >> it has graduated sharing of contribution rate. what that means is higher paid workers pay more and lower paid are exempt and they pay less. >> prop d would raise the retirement age for some employees and cap benefits. the city controller said the measure will save the is city $1.7 billion over ten years. critics say prop d faces potential legal challenges because it takes away vested pension rights without giving new benefits in exchange. the competing measure, prop c, is backed by the mayor, and unanimously passed by the board of supervisors and supported by the city's union. and almost all of the mayoral candidates. prop c keeps 7.5% as the baseline pension contribution, but allows a decrease in good economic times. and an increase from workers when the economy falters.
6:37 am
prop c also ups the retirement age for new employees, and requires everyone to contribute to their health plan. the controller estimates c will save the city $1.3 billion over ten years. mayor lee calls c the consensus measure. >> proposition c is uniting everybody because everybody is joining in and everybody is paying their fair share. we have a unity that is born to our city. >> barbara o'connor is a mare dust professor specializing in police cal communications who retired from cal state sacramento. she thinks voters will support prop c. >> so you have to have a very simple message and in this case fairness, and we all agree on this, are two salient messages with voters and i think we will win out. >> but rob with the california center for public policy said d is the better alternative. >> san francisco is headed over the cliff financially. you can take a short term approach of proposition c and it will put the bandaid on there but it's not bogey to stop the
6:38 am
bleeding. >> the measures require a majority vote to pass. if both do, the one with the most votes become law. >> lisa is here now, our meteorologist, to talk about a nice weather forecast. >> yeah. we saw the 80s yesterday. we around going to see 80s today. still above normal. we are talk about ten degrees wormer than average. and today almost as nice. fog is returning tonight and i'll tell you about a cooler week ahead coming up. >> thank you, lisa. also, how far should the u.s. government go in supporting our clean tech industry. the

6:41 am
>> welcome back, everyone. thanks for waking up with us on sunday, october 30. we have had wonderful weather, has been blessed with sunshine, but that is about to change, i guess. not the sunshine part, but maybe the moderate temperatures. lisa is here to talk about that. >> i don't know if you remember last week we had a brief on shore push on monday and then the windy conditions.

6:43 am
so we will lose a couple of degrees each and every day. today, though, will be the warmest day out of the next seven because as soon as tomorrow you will wake up to a little bit of patchy following. the sea breeze kicks up and a weak system will shift our winds. we will be looking for the offshore wind event by tuesday and wednesday. today waking up to the 20s in the northern sierra. maybe some showers at the highest elevations midweek and maybe some snow showers highest elevations end of the week. we will have to wait to see how that turns out. today 79 in sacramento. once again, boy, the west coast, the envy of the nation if you like it sunny and mild because we are looking at a beautiful day. about three or four degrees up from average today. again, in the south bay 76. san jose and cupertino. peninsula a couple degrees cooler with an afternoon sea breeze, but still managing 70 pacifica. 72 half moon bay, 76 redwood

6:46 am
of equipment to boost production. it may be $10 million to $20 million loans to release the production bottleneck and allow the rest of the factory to be run in a much more balanced way. >> u.s. solar makers may get help with higher tariffs from panels imported from china. a coalition of 7 american solar panel makers have petitioned the u.s. complaining unfair subcy kids. at target is fun tech power, a chinese company with offices in the u.s. the complaint could create a major trade dispute. >> these industries are greg in other countries because there are government financing, land that is given to these companies, and that is how they are growing the jobs in these other countries. >> fremont based company decided begins joining in the complaint. >> we did not want to get involved in trade disputes at this time. we work in china, we work in
