13 long years ago one man dared to stand erect for what he believed
in, his right to touch his own private place in a public place. The
Con however, would not let this man who brought joy and A.D.D. to the
lives of so many, escape from the South Trail XXX Cinema theater in
Sarasota Florida unscathed. He was unfairly arrested and humiliated
for his onanistic urges. We are here to celebrate the beautiful
melding of porn and playfulness, smut and silliness, filth and
frivolity, and anything that can make us SCREAM REALLY LOUD. So join
us! Don your favorite grey suit or flasher-wear, become a big stuffed
chair or a disembodied genie head for a day and ride on this Big
Adventure through the Mission! And the best Pee-wee or F(riends)O(f)P
(ee-wee) costume wins a magical radical amazical prize!!!! We will be
meeting at Zeitgeist at 1pm (don't be late, Pee-wees won't wait!) and
will be playing until about 7pm. This year a $5 donation will be
required for the secret special surprise part of the day, and of
course bring money for booze or toys or whatnot. Wear comfortable

# The Flow begins... ...with a full blue moon ritual and a blessing of the Red Tent!
 Come and create a powerful space for women to celebrate the gift of our
monthly flow and the transformations we experience as this
expression of female. Men, we want you there too!
 Through ritual we will connect to the moon and blood cycles, evoking
the power of the spiritual and pchycic energies, and blessing the tent  
and all who enter it.
We will release negative/disempowering beliefs experiences around the
feminine cycles
and create what we want for ourselves and as community, and everyone can
openly contribute and be engaged in looking deeper into how the  
feminine and
moon cycles have affected our lives and what becomes available for in
connecting with this energy in a conscious way!
 Imagine, connecting to your mothers and grandmothers once again.
Imagine feeling the pull of the moon on our bodies, shaping the
earth.  What would your life look like if men, women and families
were supportive and celebrating a woman's monthly flow as sacred?
What would that be like for women?  For community?
 This is a totally fun, awesome experiment that takes the intention
of the community to create something very simple and beautiful in
the world! July 31st 7 - 10pm 2428 9th st Berkeley     94710

# Thu Aug 19 Who Owns Water?  Protecting the World's Water 
from Corporate Takeover / water
Fortune magazine has predicted that "water is the oil of the 21 
century," and now corporations are rushing to invest in the new 
get-rich economy of water. Giant water, energy, food, and shipping 
companies have plans to buy water rights, privatize publicly-owned 
water systems, promote bottled water, and sell "bulk" water by 
transporting it from water rich areas to thirsty markets. As the 
world's water becomes scarcer and corporations seek to exploit this 
scarcity for profit, people around the world are losing ownership and 
control of water resources on which they depend. But water is a human 
right; to the extent one has the right to live, one has the right to 
 Join us for a discussion with Juliette Beck and John Gibler of Public 
Citizen's Water for All Campaign. Public Citizen's Water for All 
Campaign is dedicated to protecting water as a common resource, 
stopping water privatization and bulk water sales, and defending 
access to clean and affordable water around the world. Come hear how 
people in California and around the world - from Stockton and Gualala 
to Bolivia and Bangladesh - are defending the global commons and our 
right to water, and find out how you can help. 7 pm - 9 pm
