Native Americans at risk from toxic military leftovers
    More than a century ago, the U.S. slaughtered a bunch of indigenous
folks and put the rest on reservations in the most arid, isolated,
undesirable parts of the American West.  A new study shows that many
closed military sites in the Lower 48 states -- including bombing
ranges, weapons-testing sites, and waste dumps -- are close by those
reservations, possibly putting Native Americans at disproportionately
high risk from the toxic materials and unexploded bombs left behind.
According to a Defense Department report, the abandoned bases are
home to "hazardous materials, unexploded ordnance, abandoned
equipment, unsafe buildings, and debris."  The feds estimate that
unexploded ordnance contaminates up to 50 million acres in the U.S.
and, at current rates, would take centuries to clean up.  Seems
environmental racism isn't confined to low-income urban areas.

 CALL TO ACTION: Moving the Agenda for California Women 2005
SBC Media Center 370 Third Street (at Harrison) SF
http://globalexchange.org/getInvolved/bayarea.php?uid=3367
 Opening Reception, Circle of Courage Award to House Minority Leader 
Nancy Pelosi, and a Conversation with a panel of California Women 
Legislators Saturday, December 4, 2004, 8:30 am – 5:30
-Reviewing the status of California women and girls for Beijing + 10
-Crafting a 2005 Strategic Plan for California women and girls
Join with a group of women leaders, representing California-based 
grassroots organizations, women’s commissions, elected women from all 
over the state, and special guests working with the global women’s 
community to adopt a 2005 California-focused action plan for addressing 
the issues facing women and girls. Using the 1995 International 
Platform for Action, adopted in 1995 by 189 countries in Beijing as a 
guide, participants will assess California’s progress towards meeting 
the goals of the global plan and develop strategies for moving forward 
in the coming year.
The California Women’s Agenda, a project of the Women’s Intercultural 
Network (WIN), convened similar meetings in 1996, which created the 
first CAWA State action plan. In the year 2000, CAWA submitted a 
(Beijing + 5) document to then Secretary of State Madeleine Albright 
for inclusion in the national progress report forwarded by the Clinton 
Administration to the United Nations. Another report to the UN is due 
in March of 2005 and CAWA and the state Commission on the Status of 
Women have joined together for this CALL TO ACTION to provide a vehicle 
for the participation of more women and girls in developing a 
meaningful report.
  Check the websites of the CAlifornia Women’s Agenda  http://www.win-cawa.org 
and the Commission on the Status of Women  http://www.statusofwomen.ca.gov  
for more details on the assembly and updates on confirmed speakers and 
special guests. Register on-line NOW, or please send an e-mail to the 
Conference Coordinator at win@win-cawa.org for more information.

# Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ross Gelbspan (The Heat is On, Boiling 
 Point)  to discuss San Francisco's energy independence
 Ross Gelbspan will engage in an in-depth discussion of the urgent need 
 for public works-scale urban green power conversions such as San 
 Francisco's historic May 11 2004 Energy Independence Ordinance to 
 build a 360-megawatt local power network
 San Francisco leads 49 California cities and counties representing 
 nearly 20% of the state's power demand now seeking to implement 
 Community Choice. With major regions like Los Angeles and San Diego 
 Counties seeking to use the Community Choice law to implement a 40% 
 Renewable Portfolio Standard -- over three times the increase required 
 by state law -- Kyoto Treaty-scale (7% from 1990 levels) greenhouse 
 gas reductions could be achieved in just a few years. Learn how to do 
 it in your community. Fri Dec 3, 7-9pm Mill Valley Community Ctr

# Fri Dec 3 SF Golden Gate Park Stroll/Beginners' Delight
/Bats Galore in San Francisco 6:45 p.m.
 Cast off the dreaded work week and come seek a mysterious partner in 
this winter eve's outing, wandering through SF's Golden Gate Park as 
we celebrate the first US flag raising, Mitsuo Fuchida's birth, and 
the first neon tonight, in a level hike that should take random 
directions before we adjourn to our optional liquid and/or solid 
repast at a local coffee house.  No guarantees on mating, but 
passable weather and good company is practically guaranteed.  We'll 
break somewhere to sip beverages at an appropriate location, and look 
for bats flying over a lake.  Flashlights, beverages in thermoses, 
anything else you tend to need in the dark, and sturdy footwear not 
bad ideas. Distance and difficulty perfect for beginners.  Rain 
doesn't cancel.
DIRECTIONS:  If you opt out of self-carpool location #6 at 5:30 p.m., 
meet us under the stone lions at the SE corner of Fulton and 8th 
Aves. at 6:45.  From the south, 280, take Hwy 1/19th Ave. exit, stay 
in right lanes at the 19th Ave./Juniperro Serra split to continue up 
J. Serra to Sloat, left and continue to the Great Hwy, right.  Go 
past the park and the remodeled windmill and turn right on Fulton. 
Fulton is the northern border of Golden Gate Park and extends from 
the ocean to the Opera House.  Full directions, maps, etc., at

# 12/4: Protest Animal Cruelty! (pacifica)
 Chickens are inquisitive and interesting animals who are thought to be 
as intelligent as cats, dogs, and even primates. When in their natural 
surroundings, rather than on factory farms, they form friendships and 
social hierarchies, recognize one another, care for their young, and 
enjoy a full life of dust-bathing, making nests, roosting in trees, and 
more.
PETA is asking KFC to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer 
on the factory farms and in the slaughterhouses of its suppliers, 
including live scalding, life-long crippling, and painful debeaking. 
The more than 750 million chickens killed each year for KFC are 
tortured in ways that would result in felony cruelty-to-animals charges 
if cats or dogs were the victims, but KFC still refuses to make 
changes. As the leader in the chicken industry, KFC has a 
responsibility to ensure that the chickens raised for its buckets are 
protected from the worst cruelties.

for shredding non-biodegradable paper under a dead tree today?  Join 
Jonathon Eros in celebrating Charlemagne's 800 A.D. coronation with a 
flat, leisurely loop that should take about 2 - 2.5 hours to meander 
past most of the lakes in the park.  Consensus choice for multiple 
restroom stops and organizer's tour guide spiels.  Layered clothing 
choices may be needed at solstice but probably not.  Hike begins at 
the southeast corner of Fulton and 36th Ave. at 10:00 a.m.  Post-hike 
options for food/entertainment shall be discussed.  Oh, and extra 
points for bringing along particularly weird Xmaz gifts for our 
viewing pleasure.  DIRECTIONS: From the south, 280, take Hwy 1/19th 
Ave. exit, stay in right lanes at the 19th Ave./Juniperro Serra split 
to continue up J. Serra to Sloat, left and continue to the Great Hwy, 
right.  Go past the park and the remodeled windmill and turn right on 
Fulton.  Or try self-carpool location #6 at 8:55 a.m.  Maps, 
directions, etc. if you email.
ORGANIZER:  Queries to 415/752-2699, 6 - 9 p.m., but  please continue 
to call if organizer's return call to you is long distance, or try 
grizzly@laugingbear.org (might not be returned after 12/24).  If 
you're really lost, try organizer's cell at 415/710-2533.  Co-listed 
with various groups.  If it rains, we'll be brave and will stumble 
along anyway.
