FDA Up To It's Usual Corruption
http://www.capitolhillblue.com/artman/publish/article_7664.shtml
FUBAR  Oh oh: Supermarket meat may not be all that fresh



Garlic
Not only is it antibiotic, it is also directly effective against viruses. It is also anti-fungal and anti-parasitic as well among many other things. It's important for colds AND flus.
How do I use garlic?
Well, the most obvious garlic remedy is to cook with it. I give ideas about using garlic in the immune soup recipe as well as in my special-tea. Eating garlic regularly is extremely healthful. It also helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol counts. It’s absolutely amazing.
It’s most potent to use garlic raw. Cooking with it regularly is good for your health, but when you need it in an acute situation, use it raw.
Juicing it and adding it to other juice is a great way to take raw.
There are many good raw garlic recipes that are garlic remedies, such as humous. This is a traditional middle eastern dish/spread. You can find it at supermarkets or you can make your own.
These recipes are a great example of "eating your medicine." Eating healthful meals with antiviral and antibiotic properties built into them is optimal. However, if you are already sick, then cooking garlic into your soup is one of your best options.
What about the odor?
If the odor is an issue or you aren’t quite ready to integrate garlic into your diet more, you could try garlic tablets. Understand that tablets are never going to be as good as the real thing, but they do work. Garlinase 4000 is a good tablet.. there are others.
 
Garlic remedy on my feet?!?!?
Two ways I use garlic when I’m sick (other than teas and soups)
	1 	Garlic vinegar. I infuse garlic in vinegar, and it’s a great way to get the raw qualities of garlic.  I eat the vinegar straight when I’m ill. But day-to-day, I use it in salad dressings or recipes that call for vinegar.

	2 	Garlic on my feet. Yes, you read right. Here’s what I do: I crush a few garlic cloves, put them in a little jar or bowl, and cover it just so in olive oil.

In about a half hour, I rub the oil on my feet. I do this on my kids as well when they have a bad cough or they have a chest cold. For me, I also put the garlic pieces between my toes (but not for kids).

Then, I put socks on for the night and go to sleep. When I wake up, I have garlic breath, so I know it works! No kidding! Garlic enters your system and heads straight for the lungs.

Garlic is amazing for the lungs. This is a great way to fight bacterial infections. It also enhances your immune system and fights viruses at the same time! I love this garlic remedy. 

 What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.

CONGRESS SET TO BAIL OUT BIG PHARMA IN SECRET
 Senator Bill Frist (R-TN)  confirmed this morning that lawmakers are
trying to sneak language into  an unnamed appropriations bill in the Senate
or House to ban citizens  from going to civil court to sue drug companies 
if they are  injured.
http://www.modbee.com/24hour/politics/story/2905094p-11567706c.html


This is UNCONSTITUTIONAL...Sen. Frist...see you at the Supreme Court...with massive Class action suits....against you personally...civil suits....an OPINION...

CORPORATE POWER -- FRIST HELPS SNEAK IMMUNITY FOR DRUG MAKERS INTO SPENDING BILL: "People injured by a vaccine against bird flu or anthrax would have to prove willful misconduct to bring a claim for damages against drug manufacturers or distributors," according to legislation being "drafted behind the scenes" and pushed by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), the AP reports. The move follows President Bush's call "to give drug manufacturers sweeping immunity against lawsuits." While there is agreement that firms producing experimental medicines in emergency situations (e.g., during a pandemic flu outbreak) should be protected, AP notes that "the protections described in the draft are quite broad, and some say they would make it extremely difficult for those harmed by a medicine to get any financial compensation." Rep. Dave Weldon (R-FL), a former doctor, called the plan "lacking," and said he was concerned the protections were so overreaching "that people
 might be unwilling to take medicine in the event of a flu pandemic."

Yuppees Put Haight Ashbury Street Fair On Hold!
 Haight Ashbury
 Twenty Eight year community street fair and music festival put on hold by neighboring home owners group. 

Pablo Heisny, founder and director of the very popular Haight Ashbury Street Fair's for almost thirty years is battling a Cole Valley Home Owners group to save his neighborhood's faire. It seems that newer home owners in Cole Valley, about 6 blocks up the road, are miffed about the excess and type of foot traffic one day year. Ironically Pablo Heisny trained the administrators and managers of the Cole Valley street fair. 

It would seem logical for the Cole Valley street faire and Haight Ashbury Street Faire to join forces and have both festivals on the same day to spread out the traffic. But Pablo says that the Cole Valley street fair folk are turning up their noses at the thought. 

This to me seems rather un community spirited and is a very real form of cultural genocide. One community is actively attempting to deprive the freedom of speech of another community. Yes some folks do piss in doorways, but that happens all year round in both neighborhoods, not just one day a year. And by the way, have you every been to India? 

Is there a connection between real estate ownership and the disconnection from one's community and neighbors? 

Deborah Paulino 
(Haight Ashbury renter) 
http://www.gigdirectory.net 
A special section has been set aside on www.Gigdirectory.net for comments about this article and issue. 

Info about how to help save the Haight Ashbury Street Faire follows... 

STREET FAIR PERMIT ON HOLD 
JOIN PRO-FAIR E-MAIL CAMPAIGN 
SFPD Captain John Ehrlich from Park Station has requested that the 2006 Haight Street Fair permit application be put on hold because of his sense of community concerns after holding private meetings that excluded any input from the Haight Street Fair. 

We also feel that this move is related to our efforts for calling attention to a proposed doubling of Police Service Fees that did not include significant public opinion and how it would adversely affect street fairs across the City. In July, 2005, the Finance Committee tabled the fee increases and directed the SFPD to hold city-wide meetings with the street fairs to discuss the pertinent issues. This has never happened despite our repeated requests for such meetings. 

We are asking you to voice your support for the Haight Street Fair and its 2006 permit application and to request that any fee increases for San Francisco street fairs should have a public forum. 

Please see the Haight Ashbury Street Fair's web site for more details and history of the festival.

 Right to bear arms 
http://californiaprogressives.tribe.net/thread/80892d6b-4194-435d-9980-f6481b0c1dfa
as many of you know prop H passed in San Francisco taking away the right to bear arms. 
They can say it will stop crime, but the fact is the lawful gun owners are now disarmed and the criminals are still armed. 

This isn’t even about crime to me, this is about the right to bear arms and maintain the ability to protect from our Government. 

"Amendment II 

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." 

A free state. With Bush in charge we are moving away from that with tremendous speed. 

America was built on not agreeing with the current rules. At some point in the future there will be another civil war like event. Our government is waiting for an opportunity such as "bird flu" or a "terrorist strike" that they can use and take advantage of to "quarantine" us and strip us of our rights. Bush has spent a lot of time talking about Military control over free states. He doesn’t make it a secret. 
We will need to be able to fight back. 

www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1779.cfm
Take a look at the FEMA executive orders. tell me do you agree? Can you see how this can go bad? 
Take over our food? 
National Population Data Base? Wonder where we would go to be cataloged. Remember the Nazi IBM machines? 
Government Assigned work brigades?!?! sounds like slave labor to me. 
Right to move communities? to where? stadiums and other entrapped areas. When the military stuffs you in an old building or a new one and tells you that you can not leave and you no longer have rights then you are in a fucking camp. How long will you be there? will you get food? will you ever get out? will you be assigned to a government work brigade after you are data based?

Fcuk this siht. Right to bear arms. Protect against Nazi ass leaders trying to take our rights and capture oil. 

p.s. 
If you still don’t know about 9/11 and the War on Oil then you really need to watch Martial Law. Government, not terrorist. Free download.

# Mirkarimi Art Opening (Date Correction) Fri Nov. 18 5-7:30pm free
 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Hosts Art Opening of Ian Johnson'sWork
 City Hal 1 Dr. Carlton B Goodlett Place    Polk @ Grove


# Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Hosts Art Opening Nov. 18 5pm-8pm free
 On Friday, November 21, 2005, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the  
monthly Third Friday's Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room  
282. This month's featured artist is Ian Johnson.
 Ian Johnson is a native New Yorker and a San Franciscan artist. His  
portraits, predominantly of 1950s and 1960s jazz musicians,  
investigate the space between the musician and his music. Energetic  
pen and ink marks are evocative of the spontaneous nature of jazz  
music and the physical structure of the human form. Ian Johnson's  
position as the art director of San Francisco's Western Edition  
website has led him to investigate the fundamental nature of his  
artwork as both cultural and commercial products.

# Nov 18-20: Close the SOA! Converge on Ft Benning

Dear Friends in the Struggle for Justice,

Tens of thousands of people raised their voices for justice in the streets
of Argentina last week as President Bush met with Latin American leaders.
Bush's visit to Central and South America was marked by strong opposition
to his administration's policies of militarization in Iraq and around the
world, by another stumbling block in his free-trade plans for the
hemisphere and by persistent questions of the U.S.'s use of torture.

In our own country, in Latin America and around the world, there is a
growing cry for an end to failed attempts at solving social and political
problems through military violence. NEXT WEEKEND, OUR URGENT CALL TO CLOSE
THE SCHOOL OF THE AMERICAS MUST BE AS CLEAR AND STRONG AS EVER. On
November 18-20, we will raise our voices with people throughout the
Americas to declare that a better world is possible, a world free of
repression, racism and torture.

In case you have not already made plans to be there, WE WANT TO ENOURAGE
YOU TO JOIN US AT THE GATES OF FORT BENNING, GEORGIA THE WEEKEND OF
NOVEMBER 18-20. You do not want to miss this crucial event. With a vote in
Congress on closing the SOA coming up next summer, we know that this
year's Vigil is critical. For that reason, Rep. Jim McGovern,
Congressional author of HR 1217, will join us in Georgia next weekend to
call for justice.

Thousands of you are preparing to join us at Fort Benning, home of the
School of the Americas. But don't come alone. THIS NEXT WEEK IS THE TIME
WHEN MANY PEOPLE WILL MAKE A LAST-MINUTE DECISION TO ATTEND THE VIGIL.
Take time today to contact someone you know who is considering attending,
and urge them to stand for justice next weekend. FORWARD THIS EMAIL to
your friends, co-workers, neighbors and family.

Visit the SOA Watch website at http://www.SOAW.org for details about the
weekend's schedule of events, and for information about accessibility and
interpretation, housing, travel and more.

THERE IS ONE MORE WAY THAT YOUR HELP IS NEEDED. For this Vigil to reach
the potential of what can be a history-making event, SOA Watch needs your
financial support. Please take a moment right now to make the largest
donation you can. Every dollar is needed and helps us to cover Vigil
expenses. Visit http://www.soaw.org/new/article.php?id=546 for more info.
Thank you!

Throughout the country, people continue to learn the truth about the
School of the Americas every day thanks to you. Building together, we will
continue to spread the word. Working together, we will close the School of
the Americas, once and for all, and we will put an end to racist systems
of military violence and domination.

See you in Georgia,
The SOA Watch Staff

#  Nov. 19: Sat., 10 am - 4 pm Freedom of Expression in Times of War Clinton Fein
 
 Along with my friend Hanna Regev who, among other things, co-ordinated the program for my Numb & Number exhibition, I will be presenting this one-day seminar through University of California: Berkeley Extension.

Why is political art expressing so little dissent under the current Bush Administration? How does implementation of the Patriot Act impact the arts and artists? When does one's right to remain silent become an order from the government? And what is the cost of free speech? 

 This all-day symposium explores how creativity, media and the arts are attacked during times of war -- attacks that are frequently hidden under the guise of "national security." A diverse interdisciplinary panel of artists, museum curators and free-speech organizers discuss the limits of freedom of expression in an electronic age and the inevitable erosion of civil liberties in wartime.

Rally Outside WalMart: Demand Workers Rights
Outside the Oakland Wal-Mart
8400 Edgewater Drive (near the Oakland Airport)
Oakland

Make your voice heard! Stand up for real and lasting reforms from Wal-Mart during the national Wal-Mart week of action!

 On November 13-19, over 400 organizations from across the country are coming together to stand up to Wal-Mart. Please join us outside the Wal-Mart in Oakland to educate Wal-Mart shoppers and fight for:

 *HEALTH CARE. Wal-Mart fails to provide health insurance to over half of their employees, and Wal-Mart workers are atop the Medicaid rolls in at least 16 states. We demand that Wal-Mart provide affordable healthcare for all of its employees.

 *FAIR LABOR PRACTICES. Wal-Mart has a long track record of worker abuse, from forced overtime to illegal child labor to relentless union-busting. The company is also the subject of the largest class action sex discrimination lawsuit in history. We demand that Wal-Mart stop discriminating against its employees and come clean on workers' rights violations.

 *LOCAL AND INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES. Wal-Mart plans to nearly double its retail outlets by 2010 and will stop at nothing to steamroll their way into every town. For every new Supercenter that Wal-Mart opens, at least two local supermarkets and countless small businesses will close. Let’s stop Wal-Mart’s predatory growth by preventing new Wal-Marts from opening in the SF Bay Area.

# New College of California’s Women’s Spirituality Program Presents
A Celebration Of The Birthday Of Enheduanna
With Betty Meador,  who will share her new work
on Enheduanna’s Forty-Two Temple Hymns !

The First Writer of Record
Enheduanna’s poetry and hymns were written in ancient Sumerian, circa 2300 B.C.E., on clay tablets and were only discovered by archeologists in Iraq in the past century. Enheduanna held the most important religious office in the land, high priestess to the moon god and goddess, Nanna and Ningal, in their temple in Ur.
 
Betty De Shong Meador is a Jungian analyst, member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, now retired.  Her beautiful and powerful translations of the poetry of Enheduanna appear in her book, Inanna - Lady of Largest Heart and in the forthcoming On Your Radiant Site - The Sumerian Temple Hymns of Enheduanna.

# World Can't Wait organizing meeting Nov 20th  San Francisco
 We plan on having regular general meetings, open to 
all, all the way between now and the next national 
action day in January (the State of the Union 
protests, date not yet announced, with the new WCW 
demand: BUSH STEP DOWN AND TAKE YOUR WHOLE PROGRAM 
WITH YOU). After this Sunday's meeting (see below) 
we'll have another big meeting the week after 
Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, working committees are 
meeting separately (outreach, fundraising, press and 
publicity, as well as the students and youth group) so 
if you'd like to join any of these committees, sign up 
at a meeting or by email or phone to our office. 

**** Sunday's WORLD CAN'T WAIT meeting: Nov. 20th, 
2005 ****** 
First Unitarian Church 
1187 Franklin St, San Francisco 94109 
handicapped accessible 
2:30-5:30 pm 
closest Bart station: Civic Center, about 15 minute 
walk from there 

Come hear reports from the outreach and student/youth 
committees. There is a big post-November 2nd struggle 
to support and defend the students, especially in the 
high schools but also some colleges, against reprisals 
and punishment for their courageous political actions 
on November 2nd. We will also discuss the World Can't 
Wait focus on "your government is openly torturing 
people, and justifying it" (including ongoing protests 
exposing the torture legal architect Professor John 
Yoo - more people both young and older are needed for 
more such protest activities coming up soon). And we 
have huge plans to make together, from all over the 
Bay Area, for further organizing and action that 
builds up to the State of the Union address. 

If you are coming from further away (Santa Cruz, North 
Bay, Fremont, Sacramento??) our office can try to help 
people connect up to carpool or ride together -- call 
us to get in touch with others in your area. 

Major outreach planned for Nov 25th the day after 
Thanksgiving. Call or e-mail if you want to 
participate. We will be going out with dramatic 
outreach and fundraising teams on "the biggest 
shopping day of the year" to reach many many new 
people with the message: "The World Can't Wait! Drive 
Out the Bush Regime!"

# Buy Nothing Day -- help with sheep herding Hey all, 

 I'm trying to put together the sheep herd to flock through Union Square on Buy Nothing Day (the day after Thanksgiving -- see http://www.adbusters.org/metas/eco/bnd/ for more info).

 I'll need someone to split the labor and cost of a bunch of sheep masks, mainstream retailer shopping bags, fake money, etc., to make the sheep a reality this year. 

 Someone out there wanna help make this happen? Folks out there NEED to experience the SHEEP this year!!! 
 Baaaaa,   - Sheep FX   415-614-9300

# how much is that nothing in the window?
  The latest from the front: 
 
It's that time of the year again: BUY NOTHING DAY 

In less than a month, millions of people around the world will ask for 
the ultimate refund -- by opting out of consumer culture. For 24 hours on 
Buy Nothing Day, November 25, we remember that no one was born to shop, 
we pause, make a small choice to participate by not participating, and 
we regain some calm. What will you do to tell Nike, McDonald's, Walmart 
and the rest that enough is enough? Why not run with some ideas dreamt 
up by the more than 3,500 jammers who took part in last year's biggest 
ever Buy Nothing Day? Set up credit card cut ups, don white coats and 
vaccinate against affluenza, give out free samples of nothing - anything 
to show that the best things in life are free. You can find more ideas 
and tools in the Action Pyramid at: 
http://www.adbusters.org/bnd 

If you haven't done so already, join your local jammergroup to 
coordinate with like-minded individuals: 
http://www.adbusters.org/bndjammergroups 

As your plans come together,let us know at:

The catalyst for change: TRUE COST ECONOMICS 

Before economics can progress it must abandon its suicidal formalism. 
- Robert Heilbroner 
The neoclassical economics paradigm is ripe for the picking and we're 
due for an entirely new way of measuring progress. This mindshift could 
be pulled off by a small number of economics students in a few prominent 
universities around the world triggering visceral debates within their 
departments. And to help catalyze this process, we've come up with an 
exciting experiment -- campus jammergroups -- that allows students to come 
together and harmonize their efforts. Discussions have already begun at 
hundreds of campuses. Now we just need to energize them. So encourage 
any economics students you know to check out , 
find their local campus jammergroup and start organizing. Before you 
know it, economics students everywhere will move from arguing with their 
professors in class, to nailing manifestoes on their doors, to shaming 
them at teach ins, and eventually grabbing them by the scruffs of their 
necks and tossing them out of power.

Adbusters vs. Big Broadcasters: MEDIA CARTA 

Here's the latest in our legal action to blast open the doors that 
prevent grassroots access to the airwaves. We've taken the government 
and Canada's biggest television broadcasters -- CTV, CanWest Global, CBC 
and CHUM -- to court because they've denied us the right to buy airtime 
for our advocacy TV messages. The defendants are ganging up to have the 
case dismissed -- what are they afraid of? -- but we're not going away. 
The airwaves belong to the public, and we want them back. By January, 
their stall tactics should be exhausted and the broadcasting fraternity 
will be back on the defensive. Look for updates and background and sign 
up for the Media Carta at:  http://www.mediacarta.org

As the largest poultry producer in the Western United States, Foster Farms emphasizes a commitment to advancing animal welfare and product quality. Despite its exceptional economic growth, Foster Farms fails to provide adequate care for its animals. Each week Foster Farms slaughters over five million chickens and turkeys for food. Documentation (available at 
http://www.fosterfacts.net ) shows Foster Farms animals repeatedly denied proper care. Foster Farms needs to improve conditions for chickens & turkeys by establishing an animal welfare audit program.

# The Veil of Berta Wed Nov 30 7:00 pm
 The film is FREE but $5 donations are accepted
 THE VEIL OF BERTA   Presented by Yael Martinez

This film delicately narrates the story of Berta Quintreman, an  
elderly indigenous woman who, at the age of 88, led the last group  
opposing the construction of the Ralco Project, a gigantic dam that  
will stop the flow of the Bio Bio River and flood the land where her  
native Mapuche Pewenche community has lived for centuries. A woman  
with a strong personality and a unique blend of humor and energy,  
Berta lives alone on her small pieces of land and observes all the  
traditions of her people. On a daily basis she greets the trees and  
the sun, drinks mate (a traditional herbal tea) with her dead, and  
says her prayers. But at the same time we will see that she confronts  
the authorities of Endesa (a Spanish transnational company) and the  
Chilean government. She manages to halt the machinery and works  
together with other families to prevent the flooding of their land.  
The Mapuche people are the largest indigenous tribe of southern  
Chile. After the ending of Pinochet's military dictatorship and under  
increasing pressure from forestry companies, the Mapuche took up the  
struggle in the 1990's to recover their territory. This film is  
directed by Jeanette Paillán. Jeannette herself will attend the  
showing to comment on her work and the situation of the Mapuche  
people today. Jeannette's works have been screened internationally  
since 1994. Her first documentary, Wallmapu, was awarded at the 2003  
Human Rights Film Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Jeannette was  
also festival coordinator of the 2004 CLACPI Festival of Indigenous  
Film and Video in Santiago, Chile.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our  
Humanist Coffee House.

# "Stop Global Warming" Actions on December 3
 Saturday, December 3, 2005  more on this date 
 Climate Crisis Coalition Organizing Nationwide 

"Stop Global Warming" Actions on December 3 

Climate Crisis, USA Join the World!   
http://www.climatecrisis.us   today announced that it is 
organizing actions across the United States on and 
around December 3 to demand that the U.S. government 
support action that is commensurate with the urgency of 
the deepening climate crisis. 

"Scores of Stop Global Warming local actions will be 
happening during the Nov. 28-Dec. 9 time period when 
the huge, United Nations Climate Conference in Montreal 
takes place," said Ted Glick, spokesperson for the 
group. "We will be acting in concert with hundreds of 
thousands of people in at least 28 countries around 
the world who are making December 3rd an 
International Day of Action to Stop Global Warming." 

The Climate Crisis group is demanding that the U.S. 
government join the world by ratifying the Kyoto 
Protocol. 

Climate Crisis also demands that the federal government 
withdraw its annual $25 billion in subsidies for coal 
and oil and create equivalent subsidies for clean, 
safe, non-nuclear energy alternatives; that it 
dramatically strengthen energy conservation and fuel 
efficiency standards; that it plan for a just 
transition for workers, Indigenous communities and 
others affected by a change to clean energy; and that 
it actively defend the world's forests and support 
community-run tree planting campaigns. 

States where local actions will be taking place 
include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, 
Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, 
Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, 
Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, 
Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and 
Washington. 

In D.C. on December 3, scores of hybrid vehicles 
organized by the Chesapeake Climate Action Network will 
circle the White House. In New Orleans the Alliance for 
Affordable Energy will be holding a Stop Global Warming 
event in the French Quarter. In Los Angeles on December 
2, the Labor/Community Strategy Center will be doing an 
action calling for an expansion of the city's bus fleet 
to provide badly-needed public transportation which 
will also cut down on car-producing greenhouse gases. 
And in New York, also on December 2, a coalition of 
groups will rally in Foley Square across from the 
Federal Building calling for the federal government to 
stop its obstructionist efforts and instead act to 
address this urgent crisis. 

In many localities, following the lead of organizers of 
a massive march on December 3 in Montreal, participants 
in the actions will try to hold their breath for 60 
seconds. USA Join the World! coordinator Glick 
explained that, 'Doing so reminds us all how important 
clean air is to all living things. It reminds us of the 
urgency of our work. It is a metaphor for what people 
on some Pacific islands may soon have to do as the 
oceans rise and their islands disappear and breathing 
becomes impossible.'

# Panel Discussion:  Int'l Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers
 Dec 17 10AM-2PM $5 donation
 
Dec 17th, Third Annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex  
Workers

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers is meant to  
call attention to hate crimes and violence against sex workers all  
over the globe. Originally thought of by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and  
started by the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA as a memorial and  
vigil for the victims of the Green River Killer in Seattle  
Washington, it has grown to be a day for strategizing to end these  
acts as well as remember the victims. Over thirty cities around the  
world have participated in this event.

This year Sex Workers Outreach Project is expanding events to cover  
the entire week of December 17th so that we may diversify the forums  
for discussion around violence against sex workers.

The Panel Discussion portion of these events on Dec. 17th from  
10AM-2PM will focus on both identifying forms of violence against sex  
workers, including structural violence and stigmatization, as well as  
thinking of solutions.  Panelists will include sex workers' rights  
activists, sex workers, prison abolitionists, law enforcement, and more!

Our tentative schedule for this entire week is as follows:
 
Berkeley:
Thursday, December 15th: 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
Memorial and Community Discussion
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
1924 Cedar x Bonita

Oakland:
Saturday, December 17th: 10 AM-2 PM
Ending Violence, Discrimination and Stigma Around Sex Work
YWCA,
1515 Webster St.
Panel discussion in the morning followed by lunch and afternoon  
strategizing. $5 donation requested.

San Francisco:
Saturday December 17th : Dusk
Candlelight Vigil
Civic Center Plaza
Polk and Grove St In front of City Hall

Mark your calendars and keep your eyes peeled for more information  
about these events!

VIOLENCE AGAINST SEX WORKERS?

One of the ways to contribute to this event is to submit original  
artwork and or written word to be displayed at the candle light vigil

obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.
