WAR KILLS black car ribbon $5.00
 We all know the stark reality of war is that people die. Innocent people. Every day. While "Support Our Troops" and "God Bless America" ribbons are all well and good, there is something else that must be kept in mind - one very important and simple fact: War Kills 
These magnetic car ribbons have been created with the purpose of keeping the reality of war in people's awareness. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to 'No More Victims', a non-profit, non-sectarian, humanitarian organization, whose mission is to restore health and well-being to victims of war and to advocate and educate for peace. 
Ribbons are the standard size and nice quality.

 Iran Calls for War Crimes Charges On US, Including DU Use in Iraq
Iranian president calls for war crimes charges on US 
26/11/2005 - 13:57:23 
Iran’s hard-line president called for the Bush administration to be tried on war crimes charges related to Iraq and denounced the West for its stance on Iran’s controversial nuclear programme, state-run television reported today.
“You, who have used nuclear weapons against innocent people, who have used uranium ordnance in Iraq should be tried as war criminals in courts,” Mahmoud  Ahmadinejad said in an apparent reference to the US.
Ahmadinejad didn’t elaborate, but he was apparently referring to the US military’s use of artillery shells packed with depleted uranium, which is far less radioactive than natural uranium and is left over from the process of enriching uranium for use as nuclear fuel.
Since the 2003 start of the Iraq war, US forces have reportedly fired at least 120 tons of shells packed with depleted uranium, which is an extremely dense material used by the US and British militaries for tank armour and armour-piercing weapons. Once fired, the shells melt, vaporise and turn to dust.
“Who in the world are you to accuse Iran of suspicious nuclear armed activity?” asked the Iranian president during a nationally televised ceremony marking the 36th anniversary of the establishment of the volunteer Basij paramilitary force.
Iran has been under intense pressure to curb its nuclear programme, which the US claims is part of an  effort to produce nuclear weapons. Iran denies such claims and says its nuclear programme is peaceful and aimed at generating electricity. But it insists that it has the right to develop its nuclear programme, including enrichment of nuclear fuel.

Just to Continue the Federal Reserve Conversation:

Wikipedia Link
According to the Wikipedia article, the Federal Reserve is a INDEPENDET 
GOVERNMENT AGENCY... How does that work? Oh, and Congress "defines" 
the rules and goals of the organizations... oh, you mean it regulates the 
agency like it would regulate any other private corporation? Jesus man, this is 
so not skookum... Here's another link on "Independent Agencies":

But, in thinking about alternatives and maybe what the future Cascadia can 
work towards:

The LIBERTY DOLLAR by Bernard von NotHaus
Here is a New Hampshire site on Bernard von NotHaus

The Free Market News article on Bernard von NotHaus-- I don't know what to 
think about the Free Market News Network, but I'll be objective...

All the articles discuss Bernard von NotHaus as being the first to design an 
Organic Monetary Standard. What does this mean? Is this about basing a 
monetary system on food production? What about creating a dollar system 
based upon the environment? Does the Cascadian dollar do that? Does 
anyone have anything against Bernard von NotHaus? Sincerely, Collin

Campus Antiwar Protest Brutally Repressed,
Take Action to Demand: Drop the Charges Now!

Three days of protest engulfed De Anza Community College in Cupertino, 
California when former Secretary of State Colin Powell came to speak 
November 9-11, 2005. On Friday, November 11, over 150 protesters rallied 
militantly outside the hall where Powell was speaking. One person was 
arrested inside the hall disrupting Powell's speech. Outside the hall, 
Campus Police, San Jose City Police and Santa Clara County Sheriffs - some 
in riot gear - engaged in racial and religious profiling. Sheriffs 
brutally arrested seven students singled out from among the protesters - 
all of whom were people of color, six of whom were Muslim. 
<>Read more.

Stop racial & religious profiling! Drop the Charges Now!

In the last week there has been an overwhelming outpour of support for the 
De Anza 8. We need to keep the pressure on!

<>Click here to 
send a message to the Santa Clara County District Attorney today!

You can call the office of George Kennedy, the District Attorney of Santa 
Clara County to demand the charges be dropped at 408-299-3099 or 408-299-7400.

# 11/29: Light a Candle for Palestine (downtown / civic / van ness)
 Light a Candle to Brighten Bethlehem's Christmas 
 In the Shadow of Israel's Apartheid 
 Tue Nov 29 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM   Union Square, San Francisco 
 Corner of Geary and Stockton   Close to Powell St. BART Station 

 Stand with Palestine and join the candle light vigil on Tuesday November 29, 2005; Stand with the children of Bethlehem and say no to the continuing repression, killing, imprisonment, torture, expulsion and occupation of the indigenous people of Palestine by Israel?s apartheid forces. Israel continues to receive monetary and political support from the US government. 

 On November 29, 2005 we will celebrate the International Day in Solidarity with the Palestinian People by raising a candle in Union Square and asking Christmas shoppers to remember Bethlehem and the star of Christmas by divesting from Israel. The star?s brightness will not return to Bethlehem as long as the apartheid wall is casting its racist shadow on Palestine's children. Our candles will shine over Union Square and call for the return of justice to the land of Palestine. 

 We will also join the international activities in the week of action against the illegal apartheid wall, erected by the Apartheid State of Israel in order to steal more land, and expel more Palestinians. The apartheid wall was declared illegal by the International Court, and violates the Geneva Conventions. 

 November 29, 2005 also marks the fifth anniversary of launching the International Movement to Divest from Israel

# Movie night: "Videodrome" Tue Nov 29 7:30 PM
 Doors open at 7:30, screening begins promptly at 8:00 pm 
 555 De Haro Street @ 18th 
Suite 120 (entrance at the bottom of the parking lot) 
Free admission, donations accepted 
Bring your own whatever 

Every other Tuesday night, Encounter Studio presents classic and cult films on an amazingly bright, sharp digital projector in a comfortable home environment. Our feature presentation this week is "Videodrome" by the acclaimed Canadian director of the macabre, David Cronenberg. 

Written and directed by David Cronenberg 
Starring James Woods and Deborah Harry 

Cronenberg's deconstruction of television's dark side is part horror film and part psychological thriller, with unforgettably disturbing imagery and dialog worthy of cinematic immortality. James Woods portrays a cable television programmer who stumbles upon a pirate satellite broadcast that features the most shocking and depraved content imaginable: apparently genuine scenes of torture and murder. This "Videodrome" program warps the minds of its viewers, causing hallucinations and ultimately resulting in the viewers' total detachment from reality. As Woods's character descends into madness, we see laid bare his terrifying visions of the distortion and mutilation of the body as it merges with technology. Despite its gruesome content, this is an important film from an intellectual and historical standpoint. Although it is not for the faint of heart, "Videodrome" should be seen by anyone who casts a critical eye toward the evils of media manipulation. 

"...whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore television is reality, and reality is less than television." -- Professor Brian O'Blivion

 November Film Night:   “A Tattoo On My Heart: 
 The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973” 

 A recently-released documentary investigating the American Indian Movement’s (AIM) occupation of Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. 

 “On February 27, 1973 traditional and AIM leaders chose [the] location to make a stand–the site of the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. Cold, hungry, and armed only with hunting rifles, fake guns, and one AK-47, they held out for 71 days against the US government…A Tattoo on My Heart: The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973 tells this dramatic and emotional story in the words of those men and women who struggled for survival inside the bunkers and ravines at Wounded Knee.”

# 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!   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 

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 

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.'

# Pockets of Vast Space Sat Dec 3 7:00pm-12:00am FREE
  "Pockets of Vast Space" is an exhibition that unites the work of  
thirteen artists from the San Francisco Art Institute. Their  
practices consider a range of issues exploring the body and its  
representations, negotiations and activations of environments, and  
natural elements and cycles. Woven together at the Red Ink Studios  
Gallery, these innovative and thoughtful paintings, drawings, prints,  
sculptural installations, photographs, and video works highlight and  
draw connections between artistic, social, and psychological  

The exhibition runs from December 3rd-18th with an opening reception  
on Saturday, December 3rd (from 7-12) and a closing reception on

A Question of Conscience: Martin Sheen & Fr. Roy Bourgeois
Newman Hall 2700 Dwight Way at College Ave. Berkeley
 In conversation about their lives, work & the legacy of Fr. Bill O’Donnell
 With music by Francisco Herrera  Benefit for the San Carlos Foundation 
 TICKETS $25 program, $25 reception, available from the San Carlos Foundation, 
 Black Oak Books in Berkeley, and the Newman Center
 Eight years ago, San Carlos Foundation Co-Founders Fr. Bill O’Donnell and Actor Martin Sheen teamed up for the first of three popular public ‘Conversations.’ The School of the Americas (SOA), the US Government’s Torture Training Academy for Foreign Military Officers, was a prime focus of their conversation. It is fitting -- two weeks after the annual protest and a week shy of the 2nd anniversary of Fr. Bill’s death -- that SOA Watcch Founder Fr. Roy Bourgeois take Fr. Bill’s seat for this, the next conversation. For more information contact: Dr. Davida Coady, President
San Carlos Foundation 510-525-3787 Bill Joyce 510-482-1062

# FYI the US runs a school of torture at Ft. Benning, GA
Previously called School Of the Americas (SOA),
now called Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).
Congress demanded SOA be closed down. So they simply renamed it.
SOA used to be in Panama, until Manuel Noriega said it had to go.
Noriega was an important drug smuggling ally for the CIA.
When he broke with the CIA because he was not happy about the US school of torture in Panama, his days were numbered. 
Two other notable men who the CIA made alliances with:
Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden.
The CIA makes allies of people it can use to torture and murder it's enemies.
The CIA was arming, training and using Osama Bin Laden to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
Before Sept 11, 2001, the CIA was negotiating an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to be built by Haliburton, paid for by Enron, to supply Unocal 76.  Those negotiations broke down.  That was plan A.
Plan B was flying our own airplanes into our own buildings and blaming them.
SEE: Operation Northwoods (1962) Plan B has been on the table for 43 years.
Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al are part of Project for a new American Century (PNAC) who wrote: (5 years before 911)
Without a Pearl Harbor style invasion the American people will not accept 
the empirical mobilization necessary to seize middle eastern oil. 
CIA initiated Saddam Hussein by having him commit an assasination in Iraq to prove himself.
Once installed to power by CIA, Saddam did oversee the torture and execution of an entire generation Iraqis.
Every Iraqi student or activist who had political aspirations was killed by Saddam who was a CIA operative.

# The Heydey of Natural History Thu Dec 8 7:30-9 pm Free.
Never has the status of science been held in higher esteem and the  
public taken a bigger interest in natural history than during the  
mid-19th century in America and Britain. This was a time of great  
voyages of discovery, when fabulous fossil beasts were first  
unearthed and put on public display. Most of today's renowned science  
museums, including the California Academy of Sciences, were  
established amid this enchantment with natural history. No middle- 
class home was thought complete without a display of butterfly  
collections or stuffed birds. John Dillon, Science Director at the  
Randall Museum and President of the San Francisco Amateur  
Astronomers, will explore the nature and extent of this fervor and  
how Charles Darwin's Origin of Species influenced it. San Francisco  
Naturalist Society general meeting. For more information, contact

cofounders Lisa Roth and Leslie Mullin. The afternoon will feature a  
presentation by Cade and Cleland; a revue of performance artists,  
musicians and drag kings drawn from the Dyke March committee;  
reminiscences of Dyke March history; and an opportunity for members  
of the community to give feedback to the organizers of the 2006 Dyke  
March. In addition, the Historical Society galleries will be open for  
viewing. Light refreshments will be provided. The event is open to  
the public; admission is free, but donations to support the GLBT  
Historical Society are encouraged.

Marking its 20th anniversary this year, the GLBT Historical Society is an

# 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  

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:
Thursday, December 15th: 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
Memorial and Community Discussion
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
1924 Cedar x Bonita

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

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  
in Civic Center at dusk on December 17th. Make yourself heard in the

# Unsilent Night Wed Dec 21 6:45 PM Free

----/ Event Description /-----------------------------------------------

"Unsilent Night," composer Phil Kline's free, all-volunteer outdoor  
boombox holiday concert, returns to San Francisco for its third  
annual performance on Wednesday, December 21, 2005, at 6:45 PM.

A moving piece of ambient public art, Unsilent Night can be compared  
to a holiday caroling party, except that participants don't sing.  
Instead, each carries a boombox playing a separate cassette, CD, or  
MP3 that becomes part of the piece. In effect, Kline and his co- 
performers become single elements in a huge, mobile sound system.

Performed within the confines of the city streets, Unsilent Night  
reverberates off the cars and buildings, resulting in a magnificent,  
drifting cloud of shimmering, echoing sound. The 43-minute piece  
includes chiming bells, choral voices, and various electronic  
effects. (Kline cites Brian Eno and Charles Ives among his influences.)

Kline has performed Unsilent Night in Manhattan every year city since  
1992. In San Francisco last year, some 500 people took part. This  
year marks the first chance for iPod users to participate, as Kline  
will make MP3 files of the piece available on his website.

Participants are invited to bring a boombox to Mission Dolores Park  
at 18th and Dolores Streets, gathering at 6:45 PM. After Kline  
distributes tapes and CDs among the players, the group will begin the  
piece, strolling a mile-long, predetermined route though the Mission,  
Noe, and Castro districts. The event will be held rain or shine.
