 # The New Progressive Left Movement Presents:
 Communities Speak For Themselves:
 Environmental Racism and Violence in the Community
  An overall framework of environmental and economic racism has led to 
Bayview Hunters Point and surrounding areas becoming the toxic dumping 
ground for San Francisco. Two power plants, a sewage treatment plant, 
two superfund pollution sites, over 600 hazardous materials sites, two 
highways and other factors contribute to the highest rates of breast 
cancer, asthma and other illnesses in the country. Meanwhile there is a 
lack of economic opportunities, educational resources, health care and 
other necessities for a healthy community.    panel presentation by 
community members and activists  followed by open discussion, 
along with cultural performances and a BBQ  lunch.
  Panelists include Maurice Campbell, Lynne Brown, Dr. Ahimsa Sumchai, 
Ray Tomkins, John Nauer, Barbara George and Berta Hernandez.
   Saturday July 10, from 12 to 5pm in Hunters Point at the Milton Meyers 
Recreation Center, also known as the Kiska Gym at 195 Kiska Road.
   The 54 Muni from 3rd and Hudson brings you right to the door.

NYC AUG 29-SEPT 2  Bay Area Mobilizing to RNC Meeting
Sunday, July 18, Noon New College of California, 777 Valencia, @18th St 
 EMPIRE OR DEMOCRACY? One No and a Million Yeses
 Hundreds of people from the Bay Area will join hundreds of
thousands in the streets of NYC to confront the Bush administration and make
history August 29 to September 3. Tuesday August 31st will be the day of
mass nonviolent civil disobedience and direct action. Join us in NYC if you can!
   ONE NO: EMPIRE is the framework for global control (accelerated, but not
begun by the Bush Administration), combining US military dominance,
corporate globalization, and domestic policies that promote fear, attacks on
immigrants, and racial scapegoating, as well as undermine  civil liberties,
while transferring the world1s wealth from the majority  of the people in
the world to big corporations and a rich minority.
   A MILLION YESES: REAL DEMOCRACY means direct decision-making in which people
participate and have direct control over the decisions and resources that
matter in our lives: schools, hospitals, neighborhoods, workplaces,
communities, and the state of the world we hand off to future generations.
Meaningful democracy goes beyond voting to include all the directly
democratic ways we assert our power; involvement in social movements,
community organizations, and alternative institutions-- all are essential no
matter who is elected. Direct democracy is voting with your feet, your
hands, your voice and your imagination every day of the year.
   Also coming up: Actions on November 3 - The Day After: because the crisis
did not start with Bush and won1t end with Kerry. This will be a day for
popular outrage and widespread non-cooperation if Bush is elected and/or if
there is overt election fraud again. If Bush is defeated it will be a time
for celebration, and no matter who wins, we will go beyond voting to build
pro-democracy movements in the heart of the empire which will uproot the
system behind both Bush and Kerry and build a better world.

# 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
