 The neocons options are: (1) get out of Iraq, (2) grind away toward a slow and painful political defeat, (3) conscript, or (4) open up a hi-tech and genocidal offensive against the Iraqis and perhaps even the Iranians. The latter will require a pretext.

WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING IN IRAQ

Report-Back from Humanitarian Aid Mission That Delivered
Over $650,000 in Aid to Falluja Refugees

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15th at the Berkeley Fellowship of
Unitarian Universalists, 1924 Bonita @ Cedar -- 7 PM

WHAT: Hear military family members whose sons died while
 fighting in the Iraq, and Medea Benjamin, Global Exchange
 and CODEPINK co-founder, report-back from their
 unprecedented trip to Jordan and the Iraqi border. The
 Families for Peace delegation delivered over $650,000
 worth of medical and humanitarian aid for the thousands of
 refugees, mostly women and children, made homeless by the
 U.S. attack on Falluja in November. While the delegation
 was not able to enter Iraq because of deteriorating
 security, they did meet in Jordan with the Iraqi health
 team in charge of their donations, dozens of human rights,
 women's and humanitarian aid organizations based both in
 Iraq and Jordan and with Iraqis who have been victimized
 by the war.

During their week-long visit, the delegation heard
 allegations from Iraqis of US atrocities that made Abu
 Ghraib seem like childish pranks: a woman raped in full
 view of other prisoners, who is now seeking permission
 from religious leaders to kill herself; a seven-year-old
 girl, left momentarily in the car while her father stopped
 at the market, screaming and clawing at the window while a
 US tank crushed the vehicle; a mother watching in horror
 as the troops raided her home in the middle of the night,
 shot her son in the chest and then stomped on him as he
 bled to death.

In Falluja alone, thousands of civilians were killed in
 one brutal week. The delegates saw gruesome pictures of
 bodies burned beyond recognition, limbs eaten by dogs
 because anyone trying to retrieve the dead was shot. A
 young Iraqi woman who risked her life taking our
 humanitarian aid to those too old and infirm to flee was
 still traumatized by devastation she witnessed.

"With all the Iraqis have suffered during this war and
 occupation, it's amazing the tolerance and gratitude they
 have shown us. We're thrilled that our aid has been able
 to save lives and help children, but the most important
 thing is to end this abusive occupation that has brought
 so much death and suffering to both sides," said Fernando
 Suarez of Escondido, CA, whose son Jesus was a marine who
 died in Iraq on March 27, 2003.

# February 16 is Global Warming Awareness Day
On February 16, 2005, the world's first global warming treaty will
become effective. The treaty requires industrialized countries to
limit, by 2008-2012, their annual emissions of greenhouse gases to
the atmosphere to 5.2 percent below 1990 level of emissions.

The United States is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the
world. Governmental leaders of the U.S. did not ratify the Kyoto
Treaty. Consequently, the United States is not subject to the
requirements of the Kyoto Treaty. Seventy-one countries ratified the
treaty, as of January 20, 2005.

Meanwhile, Earth's globally averaged land, ocean and atmospheric
temperatures have continued to increase, especially since about 1980.
Scientists have reported that temperatures across the globe rose an
average of 1.1 degree Fahrenheit over the past century, with the rate
of change since 1976 at roughly three times that over the past 100
years. A large majority of the world's scientists attribute the last
30 years of warming to rising accumulations of heat-
trapping "greenhouse gases" in the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases such
as carbon dioxide - the most abundant of the greenhouse gases -
remain suspended in the atmosphere upwards of 100 years, with each
year's emissions accumulating with the previous and the subsequent
years of emissions.

In 2003, U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases totaled 6.94 billion
metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, which was 0.7 percent
higher than 2002's total U.S. emissions and 13.4 percent higher than
1990's total emissions of 6.12 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide
equivalent (U.S. Energy Information Administration, "Emissions of
Greenhouse Gases in the United States 2003", December 2004).

February 16, 2005 is being recognized as "Global Warming Awareness
Day" in the United States. Recommended actions for people in the U.S.
to take on Global Warming Awareness Day 2005 can be found by

# San Francisco Permaculture Guild Gathering!!!
 Thu Feb 17 6:30 PM Hey everyone! 
I hope the beginning of the year is treating you well 
and wish a very happy one to all of you! 
Well, after a good while without having a formal 
gathering of SF permaculture folks, here is the 
opportunity to see what everyone has been up to!! 
There won't be a set agenda, but much room for 
announcements and just time to socialize, or even any 
game or song you want to lead! 
You can bring snacks or other fruits to share. Also 
bring pictures, flyers, etc. 
It will be good to see you all again! 
February 17th 2005 is the day, and 6.30pm is the time! 
 Studio B is at the bottom of Potrero Hill at the the 
lovely industrial corner of 17th and Mississippi - 
1045 17th Street, upstairs. Basically, we are located 
east of the Mission at the end of 17th Street. We are 
also right next to the 280 freeway and about 10 blocks 
away from the 101. 
The 22 Fillmore bus runs toward 3rd Street from the 
Fillmore and our nearest stop is at Connecticut/17th. 
It's just a couple blocks walk further east to get to 
Mississippi. 
The exit from 280 South is 18th Street/Mariposa take a 
right at the top at the stop sign and go to the first 
stop sign at Mississippi. Go right two blocks (past 
Mariposa) to 17th and park anywhere. 
The exit from 280 North is Mariposa. Take a left at 
the signal, go under the overpass and one more block 
to Mississippi. Turn right and park anywhere near 17th 
Street. 
The exit from 101 North is Vermont Street. Go straight 
at the end of the exit across Potrero Hill till you 
arrive at Mississippi (about 10 blocks, before 
crossing the 280). Make a left at Mississippi, pass 
Mariposa and park at 17th.

Please prepare your dishes with raw, organic (at least pesticide/herbicide
free), vegetarian (vegan - no animal products) ingredients. Nothing cooked,
steamed, baked or otherwise heated above 105 degrees is appropriate for this
potluck. Dehydrated foods and dried fruits are fine as long as they have
been prepared within the temperature guideline above. Tofu and most seaweeds
are not raw foods. Please pay attention to what might go into your dish;
oils, vinegar, spices, salt...is it raw, healthy, etc. Could it be added
later at the potluck by those who want it? 
Some attendees have been on the raw path for 20+ years so we must adhere to
these seemingly strict guidelines. There are some wonderful raw foods
cookbooks available at the local health food stores for new ideas, or you
can go to www.living-foods.com for lots of great recipes. Beautiful leafy
greens and veggies presented in a wide variety of (raw) ways are always a
winner. Be creative, enjoy yourself and have fun! If in doubt - leave it
out! Call or email if you need ideas or have questions.

# 2/19: The Changing Face of American Intelligence (alameda)
Reply to: jrufo@sbcglobal.net
On February 19th, The Alameda Public Affairs Forum will present a program on “The Changing Face of American Intelligence”. The program will be presented by Dr. Barry Schutz, a former analyst at the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, The Rand Corporation and the Dept. of State’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research. Dr. Schutz has also been a professor of politics, international relations, and African Studies, in the U.K. and Africa, as well as the United States, and is currently Visiting Scholar at the Center for African Studies at Stanford University. The forum will be held on Saturday, February 19th, from 7 to 9 PM, at the Home of Truth Spiritual Center, 1300 Grand Street, in Alameda. It is free and open to the public. 
Since its inception, the CIA has had the propensity to act like a "rogue elephant." However, right-wing governments have clearly stressed the operational mode over the analytical. The Bush II government, with total control of the legislative branch, is in the process of completely militarizing the operational side and neutering the analytic side. The tiny and exclusively analytical State Department Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR) has always been a dissident intelligence voice against the more politicized CIA. Will this continue under Condoleeza Rice? Dr. Schutz will present a thorough discussion of these issues.
The audience will have time to ask questions about and offer comments on the Intelligence issues following the presentation. 
This is the sixth in a series of programs presented by the Forum. "Informed discussion of issues is essential to a healthy democratic politics" said Dr. Arthur Lipow, chair of the organization. Future forums will be announced. 
For more information contact 814-9592 or email jrufo@sbcglobal.net.

Global Women Strike/SF sent us this message:
   We are writing to invite you to the next planning meeting for the 6th
GLOBAL WOMEN'S STRIKE for the San Francisco Bay Area during the
week of International Women's Day (March 8, 2005).  The planning
meeting will be on Sunday February 20, 11am at Crossroads Women's
Center, 333 Valencia St, Room 350, San Francisco. (On the third floor,
left at the top of the stairs, than right and follow the main hall,
signs will be posted.)
   This year the Strike will focus on demanding:
A Living Wage for All our Work &
Pay Equity in the Global Market
End Poverty and War! Invest in Caring Not Killing!
(See below for the demands of the Strike. Letter to follow soon.)
   As many will know, the Strike started in 2000 with women taking action
together on or around the 8 March.  It has grown every year since,
especially in countries of the Global South. Grassroots women in over
60 countries have demanded that society Invest in Caring Not Killing,
that the money squandered on war be spent instead on what our
communities need  - beginning with payment for all caring work.  For
us opposing war and ending poverty are inseparable, and that begins
with paying those who care.
   Men's support and participation internationally has been coordinated
by Payday, a multiracial network of men, which is organizing with
women and men who are Refusing to Kill: refusing the military and its
lethal and repressive work, from the US and UK to Israel and Eritrea
. . . The Strike has also spread the word about the armed forces in the
Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela which are working with the
community to grow and distribute food, build housing, and in other
ways caring for, not shooting at, the community.
   Everyone is welcome at the meeting. This is a chance to strengthen all
the organizing people have been involved in, and to make the
independent voice of the grassroots, women and men, heard over the
warmongering and witch-hunting of the Bushes, the Blairs and their
babes.  Let's make it a Happy New Year!
   We hope to see you on February 20.  Bring a snack to share, and please
let us know if you will need childcare or can provide rides.

Crossroads Women's Center, PO Box 14512, San Francisco;
Tel/fax: 415-626-4114    Email:  sf@crossroadswomen.net
* * * * * Demands of the Strike:
*  Payment for all caring work - in wages, pensions, land & other
resources. What is more valuable than raising children & caring for
others? Invest in life & welfare, not military budgets or prisons
*  Pay equity for all, women & men, in the global market.
*  Food security for breastfeeding mothers, paid maternity leave and
maternity breaks.  Stop penalizing us for being women.
*  Don't pay 'Third World debt'.  We owe nothing, they owe us.
*  Accessible clean water, healthcare, housing, transport, literacy.
*  Non-polluting energy & technology which shortens the hours we work.
We all need stoves, fridges, washing machines, computers, & time
off!
*  Protection & asylum from all violence & persecution, including by
family members & people in positions of authority.
*  Freedom of movement. Capital travels freely, why not people?

 Who: Community-Labor Alliance, Vallejo, California 
Contact: Douglas MacDonald, CLA Organizer 
What: Regional Organizing Drive to Stop Educational Cuts! Oakland Education Association President Ben Visnick to join Benicia and Vallejo Teachers, Staff, Parents and Workers in an Open Forum to Save Our Schools 
Where: John F. Kennedy Library, Joseph Room, 505 Santa Clara Street, Vallejo, CA 
When: Sunday February 20, 2005 1-4 PM 
Ben Visnick is President of the Oakland Education Association (OEA) and has been a key organizer against the cuts and school closures in the Oakland Unified School District. Currently, the OEA is organizing a broad coalition including teachers, parents, staff, inter-faith organizations and a variety of labor unions including the ILWU, SEIU and UFCW in order to stop the de-funding of Oakland’s schools. The State Administrator for Oakland has recently suggested a “public/charter” hybrid model district wide. Such privatization efforts have proven disastrous in communities throughout the country and simply create a two-tiered education system that fosters social fragmentation rather than common experience. Marketing, rather than educational improvement becomes a chief concern and focus of resources.

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement and the Uhuru Africa Club sponsors a film and discussion for Black History Month on Civil Rights, Black Power, African Liberation and the role of white solidarity. 
Grass roots video footage covering the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements brings us up to the year 2005 on the struggle of the black community and African people world wide for freedom and liberation. 
From the leadership of Rosa Parks during the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycotts of the 1950's to the rise in popularity of Malcolm X and the Black Panthers, the struggle for black freedom endures the attacks of the U.S. government under COINTELPRO. The Movement survives now in the midst of police containment, decades of a "war on drugs" and the massive imprisonment of African people in the United States. 
Learn about the vison and programs of the Uhuru Movement and the role of Uhuru Solidarity in building a world where African and all oppressed peoples can benefit from the fruits of their labor and have access to their land and resources. 
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement works under the leadership of the Uhuru Movement for white solidarity with the black community's struggle for justice.

# No military recruitment in our schools!
 From: caroseligman@aol.com
 Notice to students, teachers, parents who oppose military recruitment in the
schools:
 Please join with peace activists to speak out at the S.F. Board of Education
meeting on Feb. 22nd, 7 p.m, at 555 Franklin St., 2nd floor (near Golden
Gate).
We passed Proposition N in S.F. by 63%. It called for the immediate
withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq. But S.F. high school students are
being actively recruited by the U.S. military on campus through direct
recruitment and through the Jr.ROTC program. Many recent City graduates are
currently serving in Iraq. This must end. Schools must not be used to
recruit youngsters to kill or be killed in this illegal, immoral war!
Please help spread the word. Let us know if you will speak at the Board
meeting.
 E-mail Bay Area United Against War at: giobon@sbcglobal.net

 Draft Resolution for San Francisco Board of Education

Cut Ties with the Military

WHEREAS, the United States military is actively recruiting high school
students into the military to fight in Iraq; and

WHEREAS, many young San Francisco high school alumni are presently serving
in
military units fighting in Iraq; and

WHEREAS, it is San Francisco City policy by virtue of Proposition N, to
bring
all U.S. troops home from Iraq now; and

WHEREAS, over 1,500 U.S. soldiers and at least 100,000 Iraqis have been
killed in this war and over 10,000 U.S. soldiers and unknown thousands of
Iraqis
have been wounded; and

WHEREAS, the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the war have robbed
our
children of resources that should be spent on education and other human
needs; and

WHEREAS, military presence in our schools legitimizes the message that
violence is acceptable; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT:

It shall be the policy of the San Francisco Board of Education to support
cutting all ties with the United States military, including, but not
limited to:
Ending military recruitment on campuses; ending the Junior Reserved Officer
Training Corps (JROTC); and ensuring that all students and parents are
informed
of their right to deny military recruiters access to their names, addresses
and telephone numbers.

MUSOQ*PACHA*MASSIVE
Thursday, February 24th
@ 111 MINNA, SAN FRANCISCO
8pm to 2am

$15bucks to 10g's going straight to the kids...

("Musoq Pacha":  Quechua for "New Earth")

Background:  Kia Milagros is the founder and main-mama at Casa de Milagros,
an orphanage in the Sacred Vally of the Inca, near Cuzco and Machu Picchu,
Peru.  Both Kia and the Casa are incredibly inspiring embodiments of
love-in-action.  She can be imagined as "Mother Teresa goes to Burning Man,"
and the "orphanage" is actually an incredibly vibrant and dynamic community
of children, gardens, butterfly costumes, horses, geese...  The kids have a
nationally reknowned theatre troupe, and have performed at the National
Opera in Lima.

Kia is from the U.S. and is an ultra-hip medicine mama whom I have witnessed
to be able to speak to the awakening heart of our generation like no one
else.  She carries the wisdom of the elder but vibes in the realms of
eternal youth.

Viva La Pachamama!!!

Redefining Our Relationships 
A RADICAL LOVE WORKSHOP 
with Wendy-O Matik 
Author of the book, Redefining Our Relationships- Guidelines for Responsible Open Relationships 
$10 – $20, sliding scale 
http://www.wendyomatik.com 
This is a daring and provocative how-to workshop on radically defined relationships and alternative lifestyles. Wendy-O Matik talks about what she has lived and experienced: open relationships. She believes that open relationships reduce the hazards that accompany unhealthy co-dependency. Open relationships challenge us to confront our jealousy and possessiveness. Committing to a relationship not mapped out by our parents or society or Hollywood means tearing down the very foundation of status quo and conformity. It means redefining and rebuilding your own version of an alternative relationship based on your needs and your values. 
Loving openly and freely in this day and age, whether you're straight or queer, is a political act. We are conditioned by out-moded social norms that limit our perceptions and shackle us to unhealthy cycles of dissatisfying relationships. Yet we live in a time where we can choose our own gender or redefine our own sexual identity. Isn't it safe to assume that we also have a right to decide what kind of relationship is more suitable to our lifestyle? Declare yourself a revolutionary activist of the heart. Find out how you can expand your potential to love,and radicalize your lifestyle! 
Check out the East Bay Express article about Wendy-O here:

# Friday March 11trh, I'll be showing my Walk Accross America slideshow. It's been a while since i've put on this show -- not since 9 / 11, but  I think it's time to dust off the cobwebs and show a different side of Americana that few people living in urban America get to glimpse. So come on down and get a taste for a real life Forest Gump type of adventure. We''ll start promptly at 7:30pm. Hope to see you there.
 Location - 889 Walker Ave (East Bay, near Grand lake Theater). On 580, take the Lakeshore Ave. exit, turn left on to Grand Ave, go two blocks, right onto Mandanna (7-11 on corner) and take the first left on to Walker Ave. hard to see 889, so look for 887 (in same building). Call if you need help 510-812-6313. Please RSVP if you can.

# The Irish Republican Socialist Committees of North America's San Francisco
Bay Area chapter will again be participating in the San Francisco St.
Patrick's Day Parade and is once again organising an Anti-Imperialist
Contingent as part of its participation.
The parade is taking place this year on Sunday, March 13th.  While we never
have many details this much before the actual parade date, the contingent
will undoubtedly assemble between 10:45 and 11:15 a.m., somewhere south of
Market and, of course, details will be forthcoming once we know them.
The focus of the Anti-Imperialist Contingent this year will again be on
ending the occupation of Iraq and of Ireland, and the slogans we are putting forward are:
British and American Imperialism, Out of Iraq! Out of Ireland!
No War but the Class War!


 
# March 15th, 2005, will mark the ninth year of the International Day

Collective Opposed to Police Brutality. The date was chosen because on
March 15th, two children, aged 11 and 12, were beaten by the Swiss police.

Panel Including Ward Churchill Cancelled in New York
02/01/2005 ACADEMIC FREEDOM QUESTIONED WHEN CRITIC OF US GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION CAN'T SPEAK AT SMALL COLLEGE
February 1, 2005: University of Colorado Boulder Professor and longtime American Indian activist Ward Churchill has come under increasing criticism recently because of his view of why the September 11th events happened and could occur again. Prof. Churchill was scheduled to speak at Hamilton College in New York state this Thursday, and family members of people who died in the 9/11 incidents have been protesting his right to speak. Hamilton's website this afternoon indicated that the panel, "Limits on Dissent", has been cancelled due to "safety concerns," even after the event had been moved to a larger building. Churchill's speeches, essay, and book entitled "On the Justice of Roosting Chickens" earned national media attention in the leadup to the cancellation of the event. On January 31st he resigned his post as Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, but not his teaching position. Churchill is scheduled to speak at the San Francisco Anarchist Bookfair on March 26th
