Quickie Ice-Age 'Meltdown'...
 
Coral Reef Clue To Fast Sea Rise 

Bernard O'Riordan in Sydney 
Thursday February 24, 2005 
The Guardian 

The discovery of ancient mangrove forest remains under the Great Barrier Reef
has cast doubt on some theories about how quickly the sea level rose after the
last ice age. 

Most scientists believe it was a gradual rise over the past 9,000 years. But
the existence of relic mangroves 70cm (27in) below the floor of the Barrier
Reef, some with leaves and branches still intact, suggests an abrupt rise. 

Dan Alongi, a biologist at the Australian Institute of Marine Science, said it
appeared that sea levels rose about 3 metres in less than 30 years, drowning
forests and flooding estuaries, 20 times faster than previously thought. 

"Material was very much intact, it didn't even have time to fully decompose
when it was buried," he said. "So it does tell us that when climate change last
happened it was comparatively quick." 

It could indicate how quickly the climate might change today, he said, adding
that a sudden rise in sea level of the same magnitude will cause widespread
damage to coastal areas. 

Ocean current modelling suggests that sea levels could rise anywhere from 1cm
to 10cm [1 to 4 inches] per year. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
says that the total escalation could be 50-88cm. [20 to 30 inches]

RNC Update - The Video the NYPD Doesn't Want You to See
A state-of-the-art NYPD helicopter with infrared camera over the August 27
critical mass ride films a couple making out on a penthouse roof instead of
the violent mass arrest of hundreds of bicyclists on the street below. This
tape was turned over as part of discovery material in the upcoming
criminal trial of a legal observer. CBS2 has the story on video with this

UN Predicts 9.1 Billion People on Earth by 2050
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2005/E022505Y.shtml

Pius XII couldn't think of anything
nice to say about the extermination
of 6 million Jews, so he didn't say 
anything at all. And guess who 
made that very poison gas -
today's Pope, John Paul II! 
 Our valued correspondent Harry Mobley reports that in the early '40's, the now dying Pope John Paul II sold cyanide to the Nazis for use in Aushwitz. Yet we're supposed to be feeling sorry for Karol Wojtylafor (the Pope's real name), who was also a chemist for the Nazi's I.G. Farben Chemical Company, manufacturer of the poison gas for Auschwitz? This same cyanide gas along with Zyklon B and malathion was used to exterminate millions of Jews and other groups. 
 After the war salesman Karol, fearing for his life, joined the Catholic Church and was ordained a priest in 1946. Very shortly Karol Wottylafor, unindicted war criminal, became Poland's youngest bishop in 1958. Cut to present, the Pope's deathbed. Are your tears beginning to dry quickly?
**DID YOU KNOW THE POPE WAS  A WAR CHEMIST FOR THE NAZIS?**
Now that you know this, do you feel any differently about Pope John Paul II, unindicted Nazi war criminal? - Greg

# (forward widely, please!)
STOP MILITARY RECRUITING IN OUR SCHOOLS!
*COME TO THIS COMMUNITY MEETING WITH TEACHERS,*
* STUDENTS, ANTI-WAR ACTIVISTS, AND VETERANS*
2PM SATURDAY FEB 26 // WOMEN'S BUILDING, SF (see below)
***U.S. Army recruiters were kicked off campus at Seattle Central 
Community College on Jan. 20, 2005*. Recently military recruiters caused 
outrage at College Park High in Pleasant Hill when they set up a 
shooting range on the school grounds with many students protesting their 
presence. Prop N showed that Francisco is against the occupation of 
Iraq. So far the Bush Administration has been too afraid of the anger 
they might provoke by re-instituting a draft. Instead they are offering 
huge incentives, including scholarships and cash pay outs to get young 
people to sign up. With parents angry about education cuts, families 
outraged at the senseless death of their loved ones, and students 
already having some success in confronting recruiters now is the time 
build a movement that keeps our kids from supporting and dying in an 
occupation that the city is against. Money for colleges not for recruitment!

 The 9/11 Omission Report: John Judge to speak on current events
Freedom Archives 522 Valencia St @ 15th / 16th SF
“The events of 9/11 have been used as a pretext for the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and have become a symbol of an end to democracy.” John Judge says. He will be speaking on 9/11, addressing the findings of the 9/11 Commission and many things you want to know but are not sure how to ask. He will address the deceit that the Bush administration uses to make huge war profits and rob domestic institutions, like social security, in order to finance a permanent war economy. Peter Dale Scott, recently returned from Thailand, will open the program.

Suggested donation: $5 to $10 (no one turned away for lack of $$)
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?
The Monday Night Movie series is  collaborative project of:

 9/11 the Road to Tyranny An Axex Jones Documentary
Humanist Hall 390 27th Street between Telegraph & Broadway 
below Pill Hill parking next door off both 27th & 28th StreetsHill
midtown Oakland    Presented by Erin McCann

The mainstream media is whitewashing and lying about what really happened on September 11th 2001. This film is shaking the foundations of Washington D.C. as the definitive film on what really happened on September 11th and who stands to gain. The US government needed a crisis to convince the people to willingly give up their liberty in exchange for safety. Now the painful facts are in. The dark forces of global government are funding, training, and protecting terrorist networks worldwide. This Alex Jones’ film documents the ruthless history of governments orchestrating terrorist attacks against their own people to scare them into total submission. In this brutal expose you will witness the birth of a global police state that surpasses Orwell’s nighmarish vision. It’s all here: the history of government-sponsored terrorism, the modern implementation of fear-based control and, most frightening of all, the New World Order’s future plans. This is one film you cannot afford to ignore. The future of free people everywhere is at stake.

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

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:

Standing in Peace: How to find yourself in a world at war. Led by Marcia Doerr, educator & legal
expert.

A talk on Learning the art of neutrality when it comes to standing in the world of international
law, as a sovereign human being and taking full freedom and responsibility as a peace maker.
Marcia goes into Law history, including how the legal basis for law changed in the civil war; into
territory on the credit and debt system and how the government "borrows" money from the federal
reserve using our birth certificates as collateral; into the difference between substance and
credit - that you have both a real self and a commercial self; into the international commercial
code, which stands above the law of nations.

We are offering this class free of charge, by invitation only.

STANDING IN PEACE, HOW TO LIVE WITHOUT FIGHTING

An afternoon with Marcia Doerr, legal expert, educator

For 144 years, since Abraham Lincoln, the North American continent  has been a nation "occupied"
by the expression of "war powers" and  its resultant "commerce."  

Let's discuss the implications of how that relates to YOUR life today.

* Learn how you can "choose" between being a debtor or a creditor

* Do you prefer to be a Sovereign or a Taxpayer (deal with the IRS)?

* Are you a  Private or a Public "person"?

* Configure yourself to be a Traveler or are you a Driver? Guess which
 one pays traffic fines!

* The meaning of Honor/Dishonor in law (and in daily life).

* How do you find your Self and resolve the fundamental conflict when your heart wants Peace in a
world at war?

*******************************************************

# 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
Against Police Brutality (IDAPB). It first began in 1997 as an initiative
of the Black Flag collective in Switzerland, with the help of the Montreal
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.
