Thule Society and Skull and Bones
 It seems that the Skull and Bones Society and the Thule Society that  
Adolf Hitler belonged to were one and the same.With two US Presidents  
members of this Society no wonder we're are in deep trouble.
If this sounds like a spiel from a Vote for Kerry man, it isn't , as  
Kerry is also a member too ,as a matter of fact he and shrub were

# 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

# Th Urban Yoga + SpinJam $5 136 Taylor @ Turk

# Beautiful Radiating Energy Thu Aug 19 8PM $5
 In Beautiful Radiating Energy, artist K8 Hardy militantly confronts the
audience to possess and critique sexist stereotypes. The performance
draws upon the personal politics from the Women's Liberation and Riot
Grrrl movements, which are rendered both in Hardy's physical and
cinematic language. Conversing with the video images and screen with
dubious gestures and disarming cheers, Hardy explores an imaginary, and
perhaps impossiblelandscape filled with other like minded militants.
K8's performance is part political call to action and also a visceral,
motivational homage to past forms of queer and feminist protest and
resistance. Artist's Television Access 992 Valencia @ 21st
