Urge Your Senators to Promote Open and Transparent Government

How early did government officials learn about prison abuse in Iraq?  What decisions were made about hiding detainees from the Red Cross? The  answers to these important questions can only be obtained when the  government stays transparent and open. Responding to a disturbing new  trend toward government secrecy, new legislation has been introduced to ensure government transparency, and needs your support.

Take  action to support openness and transparency in the federal government.

Recent scandals around torture and prison abuse have  demonstrated that government employees and officials must be accountable  to the public. As members of the public, we have the right and  responsibility to know what is happening in our government, and to know what the government is doing about any problems.

Yet the current Administration has blocked reasonable requests  for information relevant to a wide range of issues.  Without timely  and appropriate access to information about the government activity, we  cannot stay properly informed and involved in our nation’s governance.

Real reforms are necessary to ensure that, as members of the  public, we have access to the information we need to ensure the  government stays honest and democratic.

Take action!  Urge your Senators to stand up for the  openness in the federal government.

# Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Art Show Reception - Teresa Norris photogrpahs
Friday March 18 5-8pm free
 Please join Ross in his office this Friday from 5-8pm as we inaugurate his series of monthly art shows. Opening receptions will occur on the third Friday of each month.

Ross is pleased to present Teresa Norris' The Depth of Water photo installation featuring several large scale works comprised of multiple, separately framed images. While Norris' photographs convey a sobering take on the pollution and the detritus that mar our urban landscape, they also display the undeniable beauty found in say, bay waters unnaturally colored by chemicals. Ross finds in Norris' photos an artist's expression of the environmental concern that has always been present in his work.

# Undulation 2 march 18-19 8pm-2am $15 pre-sale, $18 door

Ultra Gypsy Dance Theater Company is back in San Francisco for the second annual Undulation party and performance. Two nights of hot music and hotter dancing the same weekend international bellydance festival Rakkasah brings hundreds of dancers and dance enthusiasts to the Bay Area.

Last year's Undulation was so popular that it sold out at the door as dancers and partygoers inside shimmied to the sultry sounds of top DJs. Inspired by last year's audience enthusiasm, this year Ultra Gypsy has secured Studio Z for two intense dates, March 18th and 19th, and will host more than thirty of the country's most exciting dancers and five top DJs.

Your hostesses Ultra Gypsy will crown both nights with new works that push belly dance into unexpected realms and the world premiere screening of an excerpt from their hotly-anticipated feature film, Medusa and Machine. In addition to Ultra Gypsy, each night's performances will showcase a selection of dance companies handpicked by Ultra Gypsy Artistic Director Jill Parker for their style, skill, and daring. Friday night will feature headliners Desert Sin out of Los Angeles (www.desertsin.com),  Kassar (www.tribalsource.com) from the East Coast, California- and Texas-based Tribal Feat (www.tribalfeat.com), San Francisco dancer Elizabeth Strong and Southern California's DevaDasi (www.devadasi.com).

Saturday night's lineup includes Belly Dance Superstar guest dancer Kami Liddle (www.kamiliddle.com) from Nevada and the return of 2004 favorites BellyGroove (www.bellygroove.com) and Zagahreet Magazine Troupe of the Year Urban Tribal (www.urbantribaldance.com) out of San Diego. They'll be joined by  the Whores of Babylon (San Francisco) and Phoenix, Arizona's Boom Boom Bollywood (www.boomboombollywood.com).

Leading San Francisco turntablists DJ Janaka (www.dhamaalsf.com) and DJ Sep(www.dubmissionsf.com) will join Seattle's DJ Filastine (www.filastine.com) to keep the crowd moving before, between, and after the performances on Friday night, while DJ Amar (www.bansuri.net/solunamar) and Los Angeles DJ El Papachango (www.elcirco.org) lay down the beats on Saturday.

Advance tickets for Undulation 2 are $15 for one night or $24 for both;  $18 gets you in at the door. A limited number of $75 VIP tickets will gain partygoers priority entrance to the event and access to a plush upstairs lounge stocked with a sampling of delicious Middle Eastern treats and a premium view of the stage. Tickets are available through TicketWeb at www.ultragypsy.com, and advance reservations are strongly encouraged; this event will sell out. Doors open at 8 pm; after the performances DJs will be spinning until 2 am.

#  “Remember the Disappeared: Wear Blue Triangles on March 18-20”

During the anti-war activities on 18-20th March, the Blue Triangle Network (BTN) calls on all people to include opposition to repression against Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants as an important part of activities by wearing a Blue Triangle with the names of the detained and disappeared, and distributing this Appeal and the Blue Triangle Network Fact Sheet. 

March 20, 2005 marks two years since the invasion and occupation of Iraq by the U.S. The anti-war movement has called on people around the world to come out on this day to protest this unjust war and occupation. This global "war on terror" has two components: one, an ongoing war on the world with the occupation of Iraq and threats against other countries, and two, a domestic war on Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants, including the repression of dissent. 

The repression of Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants has intensified and escalated since 9-11. >From the registrations, raids, detentions and deportations of tens of thousands of immigrants and government-sanctioned racial profiling to the consolidation of a legal infrastructure that allows indefinite detention of immigrants and U.S. citizens, a climate of overall repression has descended and is spreading into far broader sections of society. The confirmations of Alberto Gonzales as U.S. Attorney General and Michael Chertoff as the head of the Dept of Homeland Security make it chillingly clear that this administration plans to continue on this course. 

The Blue Triangle Network calls on the people living in this country to come to the defense of Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants, the first targets of these attacks. However, these communities are not the only groups of people whose rights are being trampled. The initial attacks on these communities served as a window through which repressive policies like Homeland Security Act, SEVIS, Special Registration, the USA PATRIOT ACT, the "enemy combatant" status (in which the President can hold anyone indefinitely without charges and which the U.S. Supreme Court recently approved) have been launched. These policies have widened the net of repression and persecution. Activists and dissenters have also been targeted, as was clearly evident during the Republican National Convention and Bush's inauguration, in which protesters were categorized as "terrorists" and labeled as a "national security threat". 

The repression facing the Muslim, Arab and South Asian communities in the present time has taken a different face than immediately after 9-11. While there are no longer mass round-ups, detentions and registrations, racial profiling continues to occur and is likely to worsen. As the occupation of Iraq continues, and other countries in the Middle East are threatened with war, the view of Arabs and Muslims as the "ENEMY WITHIN" will continue to be propagated by the government and mainstream media. With the government apparatus of repression gaining more and more strength, the future of immigrants in this country is under serious threat. 

March 18-20, the Blue Triangle Network calls on the anti-war movement to take up the struggle to stop the repression against Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants as an integral part of what you are doing. WEAR A BLUE TRIANGLE WITH THE NAME OF ONE OF THE DISAPPEARED, one of those rounded up and secretly jailed immediately following 9-11, to demonstrate our solidarity with those being targeted today. Download blue triangles from the BTN website: www.bluetriangle.org. 

ORDER THE BTN 12 PAGE TABLOID SIZE FACT SHEET FOR ON-G0ING USE IN YOUR ANTI-WAR ACTIVITIES. This fact sheet analyzes this repression and tells stories of individuals attacked.

Against Military Recruitment in our Schools? On the second anniversary of the war, join the Counter-Recruitment Contingent!
16th and Mission St.(the 16th Street BART station)
AT SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY, military recruiters were forced to leave early without any recruits because of the hundreds of students that came out to protest their presence at the school! 
This is not an isolated incident. Seattle, Chicago, New York, Madison, Connecticut, Minnesota. In community colleges, high schools, and universities around the nation, students, faculty, and campus workers have come out to protest the BLACKMAILING of education. As billions are being diverted from schools to the war, our students are being told that they need to die before they see a dime of it. 
THIS IS DEAD WRONG. 
As recruiters are failing to meet quotas for the first time in a decade, despite more than tripling signing bonuses, we need to rebuild the anti-war movement by fighting against the war where it is weakest.

People's Needs, Not pentagon Greed!

Stop Budget Cuts - Save Social Security!

San Francisco: March Assembles: 11 a.m. Dolores Park Rally: 1 p.m. Civic Center

The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition in the United States issued a call in early October to mobilize for the March 19 Global Day of Mass Action. This is the second anniversary of Bush's criminal aggression against the people of Iraq. More than 100,000 Iraqis have died, and yet the resistance to occupation by the Iraqi people has not been stifled through the resort to high tech massacres. U.S. soldiers are being killed and maimed in a war for conquest. In these ways Iraq parallels the U.S. war against Vietnam. While the U.S. government is spending billions to kill in Iraq, Palestine and Haiti, it is destroying social programs and working peoples' Social Security. At the same time, the U.S. is threatening new military action in Iran, Syria, Cuba, North Korea, the Philippines, Sudan and other countries.

Anti-war actions in San Francisco, Los Angeles and other cities around the country and around the world will take place on March 19.

Call 415-821-6545 or email answer@actionsf.org for more info or to volunteer.

# Saturday March 19th,  2:30 - 5:30
Screening: The Emotional World of Farm Animals
 Pacifica Library, 104 Hilton Wy (at Palmetto), Pacifica. 
 Free with RSVP     RSVP:  
http://www.bayareaveg.org/rsvp.htm?id=694
Please join Bay Area Vegetarians for this special event.  Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson’s latest book, The Pig Who Sang to the Moon, is a groundbreaking work that explores the emotional lives of pigs, cows, chickens, sheep, goats, and ducks. In both the book and its companion piece, the documentary film "The Emotional World of Farm Animals", Masson learns about and develops relationships with animals most often ignored—except when they’re being eaten. As he shares his new knowledge and insights with us, it’s easy to understand his affection for these animals—and his conviction that we must change the horrendous reality most of them live.   
FYI, there is no graphic footage in this film.
 It is suitable for audiences of all ages.
Doors open at 2:30, film starts at 3:00 pm;  free admission with RSVP   Light vegan refreshments served.   Please bring a friend to see this film.

& Vernal Equinox Extravaganza

Peter Copperseed presents the annual Cacophony Society PENNY PARADE & Vernal  Equinox Extravaganza, now in it’s dozenth year!  (OK, so Penny Parade purists know that traditionally this is the AUTUMNAL Equinox Extravaganza, but unforeseen circumstances such as the Presidential election and the Folsom Street Fair preempted last fall’s festivities so we’ll do it now.  Besides, we’ll have enough pennies saved up come September we can do it again…)  Bring your penny jar.  Spare-change the passers-by (offering, of course).  Give people a penny for their thoughts.  It’s spring! So let’s sow the seeds of good luck by leaving lucky pennies for people to find.  Organized bevies of copper lamé clad tap dancing showgirls/boys performing lavish synchronized Busby Berkeley-like production numbers are always welcome. Be prepared to throw your money away in this bizarre abundance ritual.

When: Sunday, March 20, 2005,  2:00 PM SHARP!
Where:  Corner of Haight & Ashbury, San Francisco
Bring:  Pennies galore!
Dress:  Costumes or attire of a monetary or vernal theme most encouraged.

# Wed, Mar 23 7:00 pm WHO BOMBED JUDI BARI?
Humanist Hall 390 27th St. (between Broadway & Telegraph)
Oakland
This documentary covers the story of Judi Bari's case against the FBI
and the OPD (the Oakland police). The first charge against the FBI is
false arrest the FBI accused Judi and Darryl of possessing the
explosives which blew up in their car. The second charge is bogus
investigation: the FBI never made the slightest attempt to find out who
bombed Judi Bari, even though there were written death threats against
her life which had been turned over to the FBI. The third charge is
against the FBI bomb school: in the weeks before the car bombing, an FBI
special agent taught a course in how to blow up cars with pipe bombs --
the same agent who later accused Judi of planting a bomb in her own car.
The fourth charge is COINTELPRO: the same FBI oppression and violence
used against political activists and organizations for social change
like the Black Panthers in the 1960s and 1970s was now being used
against Earth First! in the 1990s. And the fifth charge against the FBI
is falsifying evidence: the FBI crime lab distorted and manipulated
scientific evidence to support their accusation that Judi Bari
accidently bombed herself in her own car while transporting a bomb to
blow up someone else. Other short documentaries about the Judi Bari case
will be available to show this evening as well.

# Hello SF Living Foods!

I'm guessing these are for humans.

They also make raw foods for non-human animals.

Our dog is actually 100% raw vegan.
She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback (we did research and
found that this breed does well on a vegan diet)

We adopted her, and she was very ill: kennel cough,
was loosing chunks of fur, was skin and bone (45
lbs!), and very depressed.
We converted her diet over a 2 month period, and now
she just eats nuts, seeds, fruits and veggies, and
weighs 90lbs.

So often we are stopped on the street and people want
to touch her because her fur is amazingly silky soft
and super shiney, and no shedding and no oder!

She has her own favorite pate recipe, which we have in
our uncookbook: The Art of Raw, which is available on
our website:

# Comcast is coming to town. Come and protest April 3rd at 2 pm!

The big cable companies will be having its annual meeting in San Francisco Apr 3-5.
Communications Workers of America and Media Alliance are planning to welcome Comcast with a protest rally on Sunday April 3rd at 2 pm. Come to the rally and bring others with you.

We are looking for organizational endorsements for this event. Please contact me at this email if you have any questions or if you can give us your endorsement.

For more information about the rally, go to 
http://www.media-alliance.org/article.php?story=20050310231129497

Thanks to your calls, we won!

Thanks to everyone who called the San Francisco's Public Utility's Commission on Tuesday.  Despite industry lobbying, the PUC approved the money to study the feasibility of municipal broadband in San Francisco.

http://www.media-alliance.org/article.php?story=20050309192522624

Comcast gets an earful in Marin

The big corporations have money and power, but our communities have people. Check out what happened in Marin County when 200 crowded in San Rafael's City Hall to vent their frustration about Comcast.

"It is extremely unusual to have this many people show up on a weeknight for this meeting," Supervisor Susan Adams said. "I don't recall ever having this many people at one of our Board of Supervisor meetings, and for every person here, I'm sure there are dozens more who feel the same way."

# Make Radio, Not War! - Hands-on Radio Camps, Build an FM Broadcast 
Transmitter - 2005 Schedule

A four day hands-on workshop session sponsored by Free Radio Berkeley. 
During the 4 days you will learn how to build FM broadcast transmitters 
(and other related items such as antennas) and set up a low power (5-100 
watt) community radio station capable of covering a broadcast radius 
between 3 and 15 miles depending on power, terrain and antenna height.

The workshop tuition is $150-$200 sliding scale. Transmitter kits are 
provided for assembly experience. These may be also purchased during the 
workshop session so you can walk away at the end with an assembled and 
tested transmitter. Average cost for a broadcast station kit package 
(transmitter, antenna, cabling power, supply) is just $300 to $700, 
depending on kits and power level chosen.

Radio Camp sessions, which run Friday through Monday (10 am to 6 pm), 
will be held at FRB’s Oakland location on the following dates:

April 8-11, 2005 May 27-30, 2005 July 1-4, 2005
August 5-8, 2005 September 2-5, 2005

Make Radio Not War! Break the corporate stranglehold on the free flow of 
information, ideas, art and cultural expression with your own radio station

# COMMEMORATE APRIL 7, 2003 OAKLAND DOCKS ANTI-WAR PICKET
& SUPPORT ONE OF THOSE INJURED BY OAKLAND POLICE

A Benefit for Willow Rosenthal’s Medical Needs;
Willow was permanently injured by the
Oakland Police on April 7th, 2003.

Thursday April 7th, 7 p.m.
Café Van Kleef (21 and over)
1621 Telegraph @17th, Oakland
(19th  Street BART)

MUSIC:
·	Andrea Pritchett (of Rebecca Riots), Shelley Doty (East Bay Express called her
"the complete performer in her use of cranked emotions in her singing, edgy rock
energy and swinging jazz guitar rhythms." ) & Friends
·	Henri Ducharme with TaraLinda – New French music and beyond (accordion &
vocals)
·	Spoken Word Performance

VIDEO:
·	“Shots on the Docks” the documentary depicting the events at the Oakland Docks
on April 7, 2003 by Steve Zeltzer of the Labor Video Project will screen.

SPEAKERS:

·	Jack Heyman, ILWU rank and file activist who was arrested by police April 7,
2003 and fought and won bogus charges against him.
·	Antonia Juhasz, winner of the Project Censored Award for her article on the
corporate invasion of Iraq, co-author of Alternatives to Economic Globalization
(2nd Edition) and antiwar educator and organizer.
·	Member of Campaign for Community Safety and Police Accountability

HORS D’OEUVRES WILL BE SERVED

On April 7 2003 hundreds of Bay Area anti-war, labor and community activists
picketed corporate war profiteers at the Oakland docks.  The Oakland Police
Department (OPD), after meeting days before with maritime bosses, opened fire
on nonviolent people with wooden bullets, shot-filled
sacks and concussion grenades and charged people with motorcycles for two hours.
 Their actions injured 60, including 7 long shore workers and 3 members of the
press, in the most violent attack in recent history on the anti-war movement,
and was denounced by the UN Commission on Human Rights.   Picketers caused the
docks to shut down on April 7, 2003; and a month later on May 12 and one year
later on April 7, 2004.

Those arrested and facing bogus charges won their cases and there have been some
reforms to police practices won in civil suits in the aftermath, but the OPD and
Mayor Jerry Brown (who may run for California Attorney General) remain
unaccountable and dangerous.

Willow Rosenthal, urban farmer, community organizer, and anti-war social justice
activist, sustained permanent injuries on that day.  We are a group of friends
of Willow and local activists who are raising money to assist her with her
medical expenses, as she has not received any compensation from the city of
Oakland. In the event that her case settles, any unused funds raised will be
diverted to anti-war organizing.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
·	Forward this email to your lists and friends
·	Donate money in any of the following ways
1.  On line with a credit card at 
actagainstwar.org

2.  Send a check to
     Willow Rosenthal
     PO Box 611
     Berkeley, CA 94701

3.  Or come to the benefit on April 7th and make a donation in person.

# Dear Animal Friends,

Please mark your calendars for the Dog March at UCSF Mission Bay Campus! 

When:  Sunday, April 10th, 2005 at 10:45 A.M.  Rain or shine.  
The gathering and the march will last about an hour.

Where:  Corner of 16th Street and Owens Street, at the Mission Bay Campus

Parking:  From 16th Street, turn into the unnamed street between Owens and 3rd Street.   (3rd Street intersects with 16th Street on the east end.) The parking lot is free on Sunday.

The Mission Bay Campus is on the east side of San Francisco, not far from the bay.  This is a newly-built branch campus.  It is more spacious than the older campus.  However, it is likely that the dog experiments, and countless other cruel and unnecessary experiments on monkeys, cats, pigs, sheep, rabbits, mice, hamsters, etc., are still being done at the old main campus.  At any rate, we do know that experiments on smaller animals such as mice and rats, or hamsters and guinea pigs, are happening at the new Mission Bay Campus.  It has been said that one of the new buildings there will house more monkeys.  The buildings are humongous, especially the UCSF Genentech Hall.

It would be ideal to have as many well-behaved dogs there as possible, but if you don't have dogs please come, too!  There will be snacks and drinks and water for people and pooches.  J  Sunday is chosen because too many people can’t make it on a weekday, and we need to tell the media that they can expect 100 pooches and people to be there.

Please mark your calendars.  Please kindly email or call me if you can make it this day:  noanimalexperiment@yahoo.com, 650-619-9713, so we can have a minimum confirmed count to promise the media. Thank you for all you do!!! J
Sincerely, Michelle (on behalf of groups and people who care)
P.S. Please feel free to outreach in any way you can!! Any ideas are welcome, too!!

 Can you imagine 100+ Burners on a fabulous, hot, sunny day on the river?  We can dress in crazy attire, have water battles (Super Soakers are a must), chill out on the beaches and just enjoy being in a wet, tree-lined environment with amazing scenery right before our eyes.  Once you are on the river, there is nothing to do but have fun and relax.  All meals are taken care of and all gear is sent ahead.  The most you have to worry about is loosing your paddle and having to swim.
 At night, we can put on the Bling!Bling!, light up our e-poi/e-staffs while dazzling the natives by the river’s edge.  With a little coordination, we could set up our own cozy village with a community bar among the trees and deeply connect with one another.
 If we get enough interest, we may be able to take over one campsite for ourselves (run the music, stay up all night, etc.) and have leverage to book a campground on the way for the preceding Friday night stay or perhaps negotiate discount rooms at the local casino for Friday night.  Stay tuned for these opportunities…
 This is an all-inclusive, family-oriented (12 yrs +/min. 65 lbs.) event so we encourage you to bring the whole Burner family and to post this announcement out to other Burner communities.  The company running it has Burners on the payroll but the guests will be a mix of Burners and non-Burners – our goal is to make it mostly Burners! 
 The scheduled trip includes 2 days of volcanic river canyon rafting (rated class 3 but is mostly class 2) in either a 2 person ‘ducky’ or a 4 persons raft.  The $139 pp fee includes all on-river meals and evening entertainment, life jacket, camping fees, parking, raft rental, paddles and shuttle service.  There will be some free tickets for those in our community who cannot afford this adventure but passionately want to attend.
