Alert: Save Free Speech, Stop the Trademark Act!
The Trademark Dilution Revision Act (TDRA, HR 683) is a 
big company's dream. If it passes, the lawyers policing 
a trademark could sue businesses and individuals for 
using words, images, or even colors that look vaguely 
like a famous brand - without even having to prove that 
the company is being harmed. In other words, TDRA would 
make it possible for UPS to sue Brown's Record Store, even 
though nobody in their right mind would get the two 
confused. This bill would chill speech and hand ownership 
of common words to big companies. Fight the TDRA today!

Tell the big oil companies to stay out of ANWR!
Recently, the United States Senate passed legislation that moves
us one step closer to opening the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge to oil drilling.
We can't let that happen! Senator Boxer has introduced a new
advocacy effort, telling the big oil companies that we will
boycott their products if they decide to drill in ANWR.

the US Senate voted to keep Arctic Drilling language in the budget. 
Now, more than ever, is the time to stand up for our planet and our 
communities! 51 US Senators do not have the power alone to trample on the 
wishes of the vast majority of the American public that oppose drilling in the 
refuge. for more information and to find out how 
you can help

Activist Rule No 1 is "never talk to the FBI"; I'd include the local fuzz
in  this if the roust or bust coincides with political work. This includes
 expressions of indignation or protest: do not be rude to or "badmouth"
law  enforcement personnel. If stopped in a car, you must show your
license &  registration. Do not give permission to search your car or your
person, but  do not attempt to interfere with an officer making a search
-- it's grounds  to arrest you.  If they say they have a search warrant,
ask to see it.

If they give you a ticket, you have to sign it. If they want you to do an 
alcohol test, & you refuse, your license could be suspended.

In general, be cooperative but do not volunteer. Do not answer questions 
beyond providing your license & registration showing your current address.

 This is just general "common sense" information -- not legal advice. For
advice you can rely on, contact an attorney, preferably one associated
with  NLG or ACLU, with up-to-date expertise in this area of the law. COST OF WAR IN IRAQ - watch it grow...,0,1673141,print.story

NORDICITY The North American Community of Billionaires

The current account deficit of the United States stands at US$665.9billion. As of Friday the country's national debt stood at US$7,781,068,292,417, ($7.8 trillion) though by the time you read this it will have grown by tens of millions. 

Of the seventeen wealthiest countries on the Human Development Index, the US has the highest poverty rates, at 17%. More than 40% of Americans have no health care. 20.7% lack adult literacy skills. 12.6% of Americans born today will not reach 60 years of age. 

So it may have seemed a little odd last week when the Canadian Council of Chief Executives went public with their plan to hitch Canada's tidy little economic wagon to this ailing star. Why would prime ministerial hopeful John Manley and CCCE president Tom D'Aquino advocate 'deep integration' with a neighbor that can't pay its debts or provide a decent life for millions of its citizens?

# Wed, Mar 23 7:00 pm WHO BOMBED JUDI BARI?
Humanist Hall 390 27th St. (between Broadway & Telegraph)
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.

# Have a Freaky Good Friday Fri Mar 25 8:00pm $7 21+ 
 Pets are Wonderful Support (PAWS): dedicated to preserving the human-animal bond. 
PAWS representatives will also be attending.      Performers:
Lily LeRouge is a gothic princess burlesque performer. She has been performing old fashioned styled striptease shows with a modern gothic twist all over town for a couple of years.
 The Amazing Omer most annoying street musician in Frisco. Ever.  
Freedom Rock is a spastic guitar duo who play psychedelic, retarded noise ballads about hippies, prayer rabbits & psych meds. Eric CornForth is a pretty-boy singer-songwriter who's very sensitive. The ladies dig him. He's been described as "Kurt Cobain meets Burgess Meredith". Actually, he's never been described like that by anyone. I just made it up. Sorry. The Turks feature members of the legendary punk cacophony Alice Donut & Heavy Hindenburg which, oddly enough, is a Zeppelin cover band. PAWS assists people with AIDS in keeping and caring for their pets, and recognizing their mental and physical therapeutic value.
About Kat's Kradle:
Kat's Kradle is an experimental film, some would just say incoherent, about a demented, if not psychotic, cat seeking to escape the cold cruel comforts of domestication & return to his wild origins. Kat's Kradle was filmed entirely at some of San Francisco's most spectacularly seedy locales: The Tenderloin, 6th & Mayhem, Toxic Beach, Dogpatch, Hunter's Point & Bill's apartment. For more info check out
  Varnish Fine Art is a gallery that deals contemporary fine art with a beer & wine bar & a library & a really cool dog named Hector. Varnish is also a meeting place for everyone who loves fine (& not so fine) art & believes that galleries should be fun. Varnish Fine Art is located in the heart of downtown San Francisco 77 Natoma Street (between 1st & 2nd / Mission & Howard) right by the overpass where people go pee-pee.

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:

#   "Donating garden plants...SF Port bulldozers coming April 1, 2005"

Because the "bull dozer coming/donating garden plant" posting has resulted in nearly 200 responses, I have chosen to respond with this simple letter to all, due to my lack of time and typing skills.

The donation times will start at 10 AM and end around 5 PM this coming Saturday and Sunday, March 26th and 27th. I hope to rent a small Bobcat to excavate the larger bushes and trees, but hoping one of you is a more proficient operator than myself.

Please bring your own tools, pots or burlap to wrap root balls, albeit, I have a few here.
Heavy duty trash bags or 6 mil plastic are also useful.

The Muwekma Ohlone Park is opposite 1884 Illinois Street,here in San Francisco, near Marin, and closest intersection is Cesar Chavez and Third Street. Here is a Mapquest link:

# Sun 3/27- Anarchist Pride Month Parade in SF. 11am. Dolores Park. March towards Civic Center at noon.

# Indulgence in the Park '05 Sun Mar 27 11:00am - 4:00pm FREE!!

 Continuing their mission to promulgate Universal Joy, the San Francisco Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc. are proud to announce "Indulgence in the Park," an Easter picnic and celebration. This very San Francisco event brings together children, families, friends, artists, and community activists all on one lawn to celebrate the Sisters' 26th Anniversary and enjoy a day in Dolores Park. The event is free to the public.

"Indulgence in the Park" promises to be lively and vivacious incorporating stage performances, children's activities, and two cash-prize contests. On this year's performer line-up, Sister Selma Soul adds, "This year's Easter stage will feature the venereal... I mean venerable... talents, of Kitten on the Keys and Trauma Flintstone, as well as those rising stars of the silver screen The Ethel Mermen Experience, taking time out from their Craig's List: The Movie promotional tour.   Hoping to get a rise out of the crowd, we will be joined by one of our favorite local bands Polkacide, celebrating their 20th anniversary."

At 1:00pm, participants will line up to parade across the stage in their Easter finest for our Bonnet Contest. Later at 3:15pm, this year's "Hunky Jesus" will be chosen. Both winners will receive $100 cash prize.

In addition to providing an afternoon of merriment for the community, the Sisters also hope to raise money for a whole year of grants awards. "Our cherished San Franciscans have always been very generous, and over the past 26 years have donated half a million dollars to Sisters' Grants recipients, often one dollar at a time. The Sisters just love to give as much as we get, and we dig it when you dig deeply. Contributing to our Grants fund makes your gift last all year long," adds Sister Roxanne Roles.

# 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

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.

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."

# Benefit for the Forest Defenders' Pepper Spray Q-tip lawsuit.  
Bay Area premier of Bernadine Mellis'
"The Forest for the Trees: Judi Bari vs. the FBI",
a new documentry about Judi Bari and her successful lawsuit challenging the FBI repression of local forest activists.
WHEN: Wed April 6 2005 7pm 
WHERE: La Pena Cultural Center 3105 Shattuck Ave. Berkeley (near the Ashby BART).
Meet Plaintiffs and Lawyers in the upcoming Pepper Spray By Q-Tip Trial starting April 11 at the SF Federal Building.
Admission $10 no one turned away for lack of funds.
Info: (510) 658-9178
 Judi Bari v. the FBI     54 minutes
directed by Bernadine Mellis
     In 1990, environmentalist and union organizer Judi Bari's car was
bombed.  Within three hours of the bombing, Bari was accused of
transporting the explosives that had nearly killed her.  Still in the
hospital, she was arrested, and labeled a terrorist in the national
media.  "The Forest for the Trees follows" Judi Bari's story,
culminating in her First Amendment case against the FBI.  At the
heart of the film, made by Bari's lawyer's daughter, is Bari, a folk hero
with an electrifying on-screen presence, and the legal battle against
law enforcement that few believed she could win.
     Bernadine Mellis'  first film, Born,  is an experimental short that has screened at galleries and festivals in San Francisco (recently at The Lab's "Inside of Inside" and Madcat International Women's Film Festival) and New York City (including Galapagos Gallery, the Pioneer Theater, and Lady Fest East). The Golden Pheasant, an Orphan's Tale, a children's story Mellis wrote and directed, has also screened in museums and schools nationally , as well as on public television. Her father's role as lead attorney in Earth First! activist Judi Bari's civil case led Mellis to make The Forest for the Trees , her first documentary.   --

# 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

(2nd Edition) and antiwar educator and organizer.
·	Member of Campaign for Community Safety and Police Accountability


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.

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:, 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!!

#   BURNING RIVER – June 25 & 26
 Saturday & Sunday, 2 hours north of the Bay Area on the Upper Cache River
 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.
 2 hours north of the Bay Area on the Upper Cache River.   See you on the river! Glimmer
