Senate Bill Voids State Laws, Prohibits Health and Safety Warnings and 
Undermines Your Health Rights
Senate Bill 3, the "Protecting America in the War on Terror Act," uses 
emotionally charged homeland security language to undermine our health rights. If 
passed this law would: 1) nullify state laws related to the regulation of drugs 
and vaccines – such as existing laws banning mercury in vaccines; 2) bar 
states from warning their citizens about drug or vaccine safety issues; 3) gift 
drug and vaccine makers with a financial windfall; and 4) invade health privacy 
by establishing a national electronic surveillance program to collect and 
analyze a wide-range of your health data.

JUPITER OPPOSES MERCURY Entering Mar 25 2005 Lacking tact and diplomacy during. Danger of being opinionated and blunt. It would be useful to think before you speak. A little restraint could go a long way. 

the month of march says~ 
The 4th –8th time frame augurs the possibility of big tides, flood, storm and seismic risk. Mercury conjunct with the Sun on the 14th portends political correctness: smart but not wise, leading edge but wrong. People say what they mean only when they let something slip at times like this. Venus being conjunct Neptune the following day, sweet lies and crazy notions abound. Watch for these entertaining trends to be an undercurrent from about the 12th through the 18th. The 18-27th showing electrical storms, damaging winds, hail and flash floods or mudslides look like newsmakers. Peril at sea, storm-tossed airplanes, power outages due to downed lines . That said, analysis may offer a few pointers as to the most vulnerable locations. Southern California, the Baja Peninsula and eastern Nevada up into Idaho and western Montana make up one such zone, while the Pacific Northwest coast from northernmost California into British Columbia comprises another. Stormy weather.

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. http://www.freedomrock.com 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. http://www.pawssf.org
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 http://www.piktograf.com
  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.

# Hello SF Living Foods!
I'll be at Rainbow Grocery Co-op next Saturday
offering a tasting of our Brownie Bite and Coconut
Ginger Bite: Saturday, March 26th 11am-2pm
Rainbow Coop - 1745 Folsom St
http://www.smartmonkeyfoods.com
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:
http://www.smartmonkeyfoods.com


# Sat Mar 26 11am  http://wiseasswisdom.org

THEY say that of Cheap, Fast, and Good, you can pick two, but you can't ever
have all three.

THEY are wrong.

My friends have put together an amazing day-long event with great speakers and
teachers to share their wisdom on a variety of fantastic topics (Good). They
have condensed what they are sharing to get you several experiences in
different areas all in one day (Fast). They're offering it all for less than
the price you'd often pay to work with just one of them (Cheap).

Get signed up now while there are still openings left. Here's the deets:

What's next for you?
What do you really want?
Wha-th'hell you waitin' for?
What's with all the questions?

Many of us are seeking new relationships with work, money, creativity,
spirituality, sex, love…''' So a dozen freaks of different trainings in
various wisdom sources are bringing a day-long experience to our San
Francisco scene.

Through discussion, exercises and interactive games we'll share with you
how we've poked and prodded our passions awake. After an introduction
we'll offer over four hours of sessions throughout the day, with several
classes to choose from in each session. Including an hour for lunch,
we'll provide breaks with different options to connect and reflect. Then
a new relationship/sexuality improv troupe will bring the day to a,
uh... climax.

Let’s tinker with spirituality despite the confusion of organized
religion. Let’s translate empowerment from the new agey dialect. Let’s
shoplift transformation from the self-help sales craze. Regardless of
what stand up comedians mock, let’s cobble together tools from the
fascinating mind-fuck of self-awareness to create whole new lives for
ourselves through each other.

The event will also serve to collect books, tapes and discs – inspiring
source material you would like to share – to create a communal library
or donate to a cause.

http://www.wiseasswisdom.org Go there. Click on WHAT. Choose from the
fascinating courses and discussions offered by fellow freaks. Sign up
for times ASAP to ensure your favorite classes don't fill up without you.

WHO: Find out here: http://wiseasswisdom.org/who.html
WHAT: Find out here: http://wiseasswisdom.org/what.html
WHEN: Saturday, March 26th from 11am to 6:30pm.
WHERE: Center for Sex and Culture: 11th St / Harrison St., SF
COST: $25 in advance. $30 at the door (if space is still available).
$5 cash back for arriving with ponderings written in crayon. Details
will be emailed to registered participants.

Wise-ass Wisdom will:
--unsnag the snaggletoothed.
--octane boost the pyromaniacked.
--wow even those who think they are wowier than thou.
--perpetuate the practice / continue the inspiration of the teachers,
producers, staff and attendees.

# 3/26: Time to End the Outrageous Secrecy of Our Police (sunnyvale)
 Between 2 and 4pm, at Sunnyvale Public Library, I will lead a demonstration showing the compelling need for our police departments to start mandating technological monitoring of themselves (concerning contacts between suspect and officer), to ensure factual evidence of what takes place between these two parties. Endless people go to jail, and have their lives entirely ruined due to misleading, false, or otherwised altered police reports in this country. And this must stop.

# The Ethical Slut, with Dossie Easton and Janet Harding
Sat Mar 26 2:30 PM $10 245 8th St http://www.sfcitadel.org
OK, so you want to have lots of sex and lots of S/M with lots of wonderful people ... who wouldn't? But the realities are often challenging: even the most joyous slut may experience insecurity, feelings of clumsiness and/or incompetence, guilt, and, of course, jealousy. Dossie and Janet will discuss lifestyles that go beyond the traditional monogamous model. Can you maintain supportive relationships in a world where the only sexual boundaries are the ones you set yourself? How do you feel secure when your partner has a date (with someone cuter than you)? What is jealousy, and can it be overcome? Come listen, talk and learn about how to build the lifestyle you want. 
Admission: $10 per person 
Janet Hardy (aka Catherine A. Liszt and Lady Green) is the president of Greenery Press Inc. Under her various pen names, she is the author or co-author of ten books on sexuality, polyamory and BDSM. Janet is a bisexual, polyamorous, gender-flexible SM switch who has shared her lifestyle knowledge at workshops and conferences internationally. 
Dossie Easton is a San Francisco therapist who specializes in helping couples, triads and groups to navigate the tricky byways of slut lifestyles. An active sex radical since 1961, Dossie is a well-known bottom who also tops, and has taught dozens of classes on S/M techniques, skills and philosophy. She was one of the first members of the Society of Janus in San Francisco. The two women have co-authored five books, including "The Ethical Slut: A Guide to Infinite Sexual Possibilities" and "Radical Ecstasy: SM Journeys to Transcendence."

As you may know, ownership of FPHQ has recently changed hands, and The Company is moving to new a new, soon-to-be-announced location in San Francisco. So on March 26, False Profit is saying goodbye to 43 Norfolk with LIQUIDATE, the last party ever to happen at that location! The Company is clearing out all the old late-night entertainment to make room for the new models - all the fun must go!

A Memory Good Enough To Buy

Do you remember the time when you came to the party at FPHQ and had to step over the sewage water to get to the porto-potty? Or when you heard that DJ set at 43 Norfolk that made you start rubbing yourself? How about the time when the cops shined a Maglite right in your huge pupils? Or that hilarious time when your friend took just a little too much to be at a warehouse full of people? And when you met that extreme hottie and never got their number?

Now you can come reminisce about these good times - and many more - using False Profit's exclusive new life-enhancement product: Memorable Moments. At LIQUIDATE, partygoers will have access to licenses* for Memorable Moments - with each license, you can go to the scene of one of your favorite memories at FPHQ and think about it once! Make them count! Share them with friends!**

Now, how much would you expect to pay for a license for one Memorable Moment? Guess lower. Still lower. No, fool, even lower! That's right, you get three Memorable Moments absolutely free with your donation at the door! You will not want to miss this special, one-time offer.

So you get the fun, the dancing, the Corporate love, and the Memorable Moments, all for the suggested donation of $10 ... With a spectacular all-star DJ lineup including:

Donna Matrix / Kraddy / Smoove / Laird / Kap'n Kirk / 8Ball / Joe Encarnacion / ALXNDR / benchun / halon / and more TBA...

* Note: The licenses are not physical, tangible, or in any sense real. Guests are expected to use three at maximum. Company agents will be watching. Re-selling of licenses is expressly encouraged.

** Note: in a group recollection, each participant must use one Memorable Moment license.

#   "Donating garden plants...SF Port bulldozers coming April 1, 2005"
http://sanfrancisco.tribe.net/listing/ef9fa237-34e8-499e-b33b-28fd4599f102

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:

# 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.

# March 31 National call to action      No Draft, No Way!

On March 31, the Selective Service System (SSS) will report to 
President Bush that it is ready to implement the draft within 75 
days. Right now, the SSS is staffing local draft boards, training 
volunteer registrars to work on high school and college campuses, and 
streamlining its induction process. They have also gained access to 
the Department of Education's computer files, to ensure maximum 
registration.

It is clear that the Bush Administration is preparing for a draft. 
They are desperate for new soldiers to continue the occupation of 
Iraq and to prepare for new wars against Iran, Syria, and elsewhere.

At the same time that Bush is looking to youth to supply cannon 
fodder for his wars, he is busy cutting financial aid and slashing 
social programs. The same young people that Bush wants to use to 
fight his wars are finding it harder to pay for their education, find 
jobs that pay a living wage, or obtain basic necessities, like health 
care or affordable housing.

It is time for young people, who are already under attack from the 
Bush Administration, to take a stand.  On March 31, the same day that 
the Selective Service System is reporting that the draft is ready to 
go, youth all over the country will report that they will refuse to 
go.  Local No Draft, No Way organizers and other anti-draft activists 
are planning protests, walkouts, and direct action at recruiting 
centers, selective service offices, and other sites.  We call upon 
students, youth, and antiwar activists to organize local actions on 
March 31 to say "No Draft, No Way!"

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."

policies that favor his corporate donors.  
   Tell everyone to come out and protest and make their voices heard.  Last

THE FOREST FOR THE TREES
 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.   --

# 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.

# Sun Apr 10     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!!

#   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.
