The Greek Govt plans to poison all the street animals to make the  
streets of Athens seemingly cleaner. I was in Athens last year and  
there is not a street animal problem. Animals are mostly well looked  
after and there aren't large numbers of them hanging about. Please

# A reading of Karen Macklin's Mr. President Thu July 29 8 PM don sug

comedy about a dysfunctional family in Tallahassee during the time of a
major presidential election. But when a cat becomes president of the
United States, strange things start to happen, and it quickly turns
into a dark and perilous journey that examines our social and political
world through the eyes of two children who come to represent the
conflicting forces of nature. Off-Market Studio 965 Mission @ 5 St

)'(  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

 The Red Tent exists as a space devoted to women on their moon and  
crones to nurture the feminine spirit.  The Red Tent serves as a community  
resource offering women a place to experience their being by listening to whatxs
within.  The Red Tent honors the power of creation we have in our

# Thu Aug 19 Who Owns Water?  Protecting the World's Water 
from Corporate Takeover http://www.citizen.org / 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 
water.
 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
