Articles of Impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President
Richard B. Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald H.Rumsfeld et al. 

RUMSFELD, ET AL. by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark 

"Approximately 50% of the fatty acids in coconut fat
are lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty
acid, which has the additional beneficial function of
being formed into monolaurin in the human or animal
body. Monolaurin is the anti-viral, antibacterial, and
antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or
animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV,
herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic
bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and
heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia
lamblia. Some studies have also shown some
antimicrobial effects of the free lauric acid."

How would you like to learn some exciting new tools to facilitate creating
your world around you exactly as you desire it to be?  Well, if you have
seen the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know,” and got excited about the
possibilities in your own life…then Power Manifestation™ is for you.

According to experts interviewed in the film who report on the latest
developments in Quantum Physics, there are recent scientific findings that
set the foundation for something many of us have always known to be true
through our own experience -- that we actually do create everything around

Power Manifestation is a revolutionary course designed specifically to help
you understand your own extraordinary manifestation power, and then learn
how to best use it in your daily life.


Desires + Beliefs/Intentions + Emotions + Allow/Receive = YPAF

Could manifesting what you want be as simple as the above formula? The
answer is yes and no.  Yes, in that you are already manifesting every moment
of your life.  However, the challenge is in mastering your manifestation
powers, and this takes practice…which is why we have created the Power
Manifestation Formula™ and a comprehensive framework to speed your process.

Using this formula you will be able to:
-	Be the ultimate source of your prosperity.
-	Understand your underlying emotions and feelings and use them to attract
situations, people and opportunities into your life.
-	Use Power Manifestation for conflict resolution AND the creation of the
outcome you desire in life’s situations.
-	Attract amazing mates and friends.
-	Have long lasting joy and excitement almost everyday.
-	Magnetize what you REALLY want to come to into your life.
-	Recognize what your life’s purpose is and tap into Divine information.

Power Manifestation Level One provides the fundamentals of manifestation and
gives you the confidence to use the formula effectively.

Have you ever wondered why sometimes everything goes just your way and
sometimes everything seems to go wrong? Well, those of us at Power
Manifestation know there is a set of practices to help you keep things
flowing your way at all times, no matter what is happening around you.

Here is how Power Manifestation works:  The universe operates based on the
"Law of Attraction" or "like" energy and so does Your Personal Attractor
Field (YPAF). Most people do not understand how to manage their personal
attractor field and how to control all facets of their life -- from health
to wealth -- with their thoughts, feelings and intentions. YPAF is the
energetic vibration of your emotions that brings you everything in life,
positive and negative. By gaining power over this emotional energy and
focusing your desires in the right direction you can dramatically shift your
soul's ability to create abundance in all areas. Through years of research
and practice with the principles governed by the Law of Attraction, Zen has
developed the Power Manifestation Formula, a simple yet powerful tool that
can immediately assess your current situation and create the path to your
heart's desires by learning:

 Join Critical Resistance and All of Us or None as we cite Jerry Brown for
harassing and scapegoating the people of Oakland.



Want to help make POSTERS? Join us at 7:00PM at the Critical Resistance
office - 1904 FRANKLIN STREET (AT 19TH), ROOM 504.

Jerry Brown continues to scapegoat parolees and probationers for causing
all of Oakland's problems as he plans a run for Attorney General.  His newest
campaign scheme is to impose a curfew on probationers and parolees --
arresting them if they leave their house after 10pm.

After serving time in torturous conditions, former prisoners are faced with
prejudice and discrimination that make their re-entry into society difficult
and, in some cases, impossible.  Prison sentences never end as long as the
discrimination against former prisoners -- like establishing a 10pm
curfew -- continues.

We need to join together to fight for real safety in Oakland. Scapegoating
and persecuting people on probation and parole will NOT make Oakland safe.
Real safety will only come when we spend our money and time on supporting
and creating opportunities for all people, not on harassing them.

# BUILD WITH EARTH - eco-building workshop
 Sat Jan 29  + Sun Jan 30 10:00 AM The LAUNCHPAD 
3833 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, just North of MacArthur 
Oakland, CA 94609 view map More Info: 415-218-2743
Learn how to build beautiful houses and other structures from earth, using a technique called COB. Also called monolithic adobe, cob is made by combining clay, sand, straw, and water, then mixing it with your feet, and molding it with your hands. 

Why learn how to build from cob? Why are cob houses better than stick-frame wood houses? 1, you can build one by yourself for really cheap; 2, it's healthy for people, and healthy for the planet; & 3, and best of all, you can sculpt the houses into beautiful, funky shapes! 

This is an excellent opportunity to learn the basics of cob building, without having to leave the city. We will be covering siting, design, foundations, walls, and weatherproofing. When you leave the workshop, you should feel confident enough to build a cob structure in your own backyard! 

Millions of people all over the world live in earthen homes, because they are affordable, healthy, and beautiful. Connect to your primal human self, and find out what you've been missing all this time. 

Space is limited, so call early to register:   (415) 218-2743

# 1/31: Student Activism, Participatory Democracy and the Case of Sweat Shop (mission district)
 Monday, January 31st , 2005 
7: 00 PM New College of California 
777 Valencia Street 
San Francisco 94110 
Tom Hayden, lifelong activist -- Students for a Democratic Society/SDS, Chicago 8 defendant in 1968, former California State Senator, author and National Director of No More Sweatshops! a coalition of labor, community, and campus advocates -- has been named Activist Faculty-in-Residence at New College of California for Spring 2005. 

Tom will lead seminars for New College students, students from other Bay Area colleges and the public on social movements and community organizing. He will also supervise student internships in the SweatFree Bay Area Coalition’s campaign seeking the passage of sweat-shop free procurement policies and legislation by Bay Area communities beginning with San Francisco. These seminars and participation in the campaign are open to the public!. If you are interested please try to attend this kick-off presentation. 

The goal of Mr. Hayden’s New College residency is to combine his experience as a student civil rights and anti-Vietnam war organizer in the 1960’s with his 18 years in the State Senate to help students link classroom theories of society, corporate globalization, and social change with the experience of effective political action. Through this, New College seeks to educate a new generation of engaged student activists who understand, embrace and enact the final utopian words of SDS’s founding document which Tom co-authored– the Port Huron Statement – that “ we seek the unattainable, to avoid the unimaginable”.

Jan 31: Price of Aid  Everyday the U.S. donates millions of tons of food to famine victims and other starving people in the world's poorest countries. The provocative documentary reveals the vast bureaucratic network of American aid agencies involved in the 'hunger business,' one in which rich countries benefit from the problems of poor countries and questions how America's well-intentioned foreign-aid program has spawned a self-serving relationship between humanitarian aid and American business and politics.  Zambia, a country teetering on the precipice of famine, becomes a cause for a solemn discussion regarding the dignity of the people we seek to help.  55 mins, 2004

Feb 7: Argentina: Hope in Hard Times joins in the processions and protests, attends street-corner neighborhood assemblies, visits workers' cooperatives and urban gardens, taking a close-up look at the ways in which Argentines are picking up the pieces of their devastated economy and creating new possibilities for the future. A spare narrative, informal interview settings, and candid street scenes allow the pervasive strength, humor, and resilience of the Argentine people to tell these tales. These are their inspiring stories - of a failed economy and distrusted politicians, of heartache and hard times, of a resurgence of grassroots democracy and the spirit of community - told in resonant detail. 74 mins, 2004

Feb 14: For Man Must Work  The 20th century has seen the creation of colossal wealth and exploding economies. But the days of industry providing mass employment are over. In the global economy, human resources are being replaced by technology. We are moving from a mass labor force to an elite corps concentrated in the knowledge sector. Will this change result in a sort of economic apartheid in which a third of humanity is made redundant? Will this revolution mean the end of work as we know it? The film raises crucial questions and suggests rethinking the future. Filmed in the United States, Canada, France and Mexico, the film shows how living and working conditions are deteriorating for many people.  Besides personal stories, we also hear from experts such as Vivianne Forrester, author of The Economic Horror; Jeremy Rifkin, American economist and author of The End of Work and others. 52 mins, 2001

Feb 21: Trading Democracy  Bill Moyers reports on Chapter 11 of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which multinational corporations who are using to challenge democracy.  Chapter 11 is only one provision in the 555-page NAFTA - negotiated to promote business among the US, Canada and Mexico and was supposedly written to protect investors if foreign governments tried to seize their property.  But corporations have stretched NAFTA's Chapter 11 to undermine environmental decisions, sue local governments, overturn decisions of local communities in cases that are heard before international trade tribunals that make rulings in secret. 58 mins, 2002 

Feb 28:  End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of The American Dream  With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now, some scientists and policy makers argue in this documentary. What does Oil Peak mean for North America? As energy prices skyrocket in the coming years, how will the populations of suburbia react to the collapse of their dream? Are today's suburbs destined to become the slums of tomorrow? And what can be done NOW, individually and collectively, to avoid The End of Suburbia ?  78 mins, 2004 

March 7:  Velorution: One City's Solution to the Automobile - When the USSR collapsed, Cuba lost 80% of their oil supply. This movie documents how they bought 1.2 million bicycles, switched 5 bus factories to bicycle manufacturing, educated riders on how to ride, changed the city of Havana to accommodate bikes, posted bicycle signs, did job swaps to reduce length of commutes and in the process created more human interaction and community  A truly inspiring video. 30 mins,  1996 

Also on March 7: Greening of Cuba - When trade relations with the socialist block collapsed in 1990, Cuba lost 80% of its pesticide and fertilizer imports and half its petroleum - the mainstays of its highly industrialized agriculture. Challenged with growing food for 11 million in the face of the continuing U.S. embargo, Cuba embarked on the largest conversion to organic farming ever attempted. Told in the voices of the women and men - the campesinos, researchers, and organic gardeners - who are leading the organic agriculture movement, The Greening of Cuba reminds us that developed and developing nations alike can choose a healthier environment and still feed their people. 38 mins, 1996 

March 14:  About Baghdad - In July of 2003, exiled writer and poet Sinan Antoon returned to his native Baghdad with a team of independent filmmakers, artists and poets to document the effects that decades of oppression, war, sanctions and occupation have had on his city. The result is a fascinating mosaic of opinions, perspectives, desires and memories that offers a picture far more complex than the limited one presented by mainstream US media. ABOUT BAGHDAD pays tribute to the brave people of Baghdad as they struggle to come to terms with the tragic fate of their beloved city.  90 mins, 2004 

March 21:  Friendship Village  - An award-winning documentary about an international group of veterans who are building a village in Viet Nam for children with Agent Orange-related disabilities. Built on a former rice paddy near Hanoi, the Friendship Village stands not only as a symbol of peace and reconciliation, but as a testament to the potential for all people to come to terms with the past, heal the wounds of war, and create a better world.   Veterans from the USA, Vietnam, France, Germany, Japan, Great Britain and Australia are attempting to mitigate the ongoing effects of the toxic herbicide sprayed during the war. Their efforts are a powerful example of how average people can still make a profound difference in our increasingly globalized world. As such, the Vietnam Friendship Village has the potential to change not only the lives of the children who live in it and the men who build it, but all who come to understand its mission. 50 mins, 2003

Philip Langton
Nikola Tesla is widely acknowledged as the father of Robotics, but  even Tesla might pause in awe to ponder some of the potential applications of technologies Philip Langton is working to develop.  His research could eventually lead to scalable nanomesh net applications such as: smart  shipping labels that report damage, spray on computers or a robo-insect air force.

How  will smart dust particles talk to each other?  What are the most likely nanomesh  products to reach consumers soon?  Might we see a computer in a can in 3 years?    What are the costs and dangers of this new technology?  Mr. Langton has some  fascinating answers to share.

Philip  Langton is a second-generation Silicon Valley engineer / inventor expert in Optical Frequency Identification Devices (OFID),  Micro-Electro- Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and process control manufacturing,   Philip  recently received the first patents (US #6553481  and #6772239)  ever issued for a self-, one-time only, programmable (SOTOP™).  single-circuit  secure memory device (SCSMD).

Parking is available on the street or for $ 2 per hour in the  garage nearby behind ROSS Dept. Store.  For more information about the  San Francisco Tesla Society, call (415) 931-2593, or visit us online at
