Merck\'s infant vaccine stirs new controversy
Los Angeles Times/Newsday, March 8, 2005,0,3713664.story
Merck & Co. continued to supply infant vaccine containing a mercury 
preservative for two years after declaring that it had eliminated the chemical. 
Thimerosal, which is nearly 50 percent ethyl mercury, has largely been eliminated 
from most routine childhood vaccines, although it is present in most flu shots. 
More than 4,200 parents have filed claims in the federal Vaccine Injury 
Compensation Program, alleging that their children suffered autism or other 
neurological disorders from mercury in their shots.

     Texas Bill Would Require Transponders in All Cars
    A Texas state representative wants all cars to have electronic

    A bill introduced in the Texas House of Representatives by Larry
    Phillips, Vice-Chairman of the Transportation Committee, would
    require electronic transponders to be built-into state automobile
    inspection stickers. This new device would be initially used to
    allow an roadside verification of every passing vehicle\'s
    insurance information. A car with expired insurance information
    would be mailed a $250 ticket.

    Each transponder would transmit the vehicle\'s VIN, insurance
    policy number, license plate number and any other information the
    DMV requires. The legislation creates a database of every Texas
    automobile insurance policy to allow the checks. The transponder
    would also operate with Texas toll roads.

    Anyone who does not receive or respond to the mailed ticket would
    have his license and vehicle registration suspended.

\"BattleGround: 21 Days at Empire\'s Edge\"
 Producers from the Guerilla News Network will be present to answer
questions and show recent shorts.                 About the film:
In late 2003, two filmmakers from the Sundance award-winning Guerrilla
News Network spent three weeks on the frontlines of the simmering
guerrilla war in Iraq, gathering intelligence, dodging bullets, and
capturing the untold stories of what has become the world?s most
covered, and misunderstood, conflict.
BattleGround is an intensely emotional journey that will challenge the
orthodoxies of Left and Right, and highlight the humanity of all sides
of the conflict. BattleGround is a critical film for anyone who wants
to understand the powerful forces that are sucking America deeper and
deeper into a Middle Eastern quagmire.
BattleGround recently won the Silver Hugo Award for documentaries at
the Chicago International Film Festival

# Medea Benjamin, June Brashares, Lisa Feldstein, Susan King, Ross Mirkarimi, Renee Saucedo, and the Feminist Issues Group of the San Francisco Green Party invites you to

 a house party for an exceptional candidate for the Oakland City Council
Aimee Allison 

on Thursday, April 14th, 2005 6:30pm to 8:30 pm

at the home of Lisa Feldstein at 793 Cole (at Frederick), San Francisco
(near the Muni lines N-Judah, 43, 37 and 6)

Our apologies that the location is not wheelchair accessible.

On May 17th, Oakland is holding a special election to replace a city council member.  Aimee, an African-American veteran and 12-year resident of Oakland\'s Lakeshore area, was urged to run for the seat by a coalition of neighborhood activists, union members, and Green Party members, because of her background as a teacher, anti-war activist, and affordable housing advocate.

Even if we don’t live in Oakland, by working together we have a good chance of helping a progressive Green Party candidate win this seat and increasing the burgeoning Green presence in Northern California. Volunteers from San Francisco, San Mateo and even Santa Clara are coming to help. 

Please join us in this effort. Your contribution will be gratefully valued, and carefully utilized to win a strategic grassroots campaign for the betterment of all Oakland’s diverse families.

You can RSVP for this house party by calling 415-248-1620 or a reply email. 

If you are not able to attend the fundraiser, you may contribute by making out a check to Neighbors for Aimee Allison (FPPC ID no. 1274089) and sending it to P.O. Box 16093, Oakland, CA 94610.  Contributions are not tax deductible.
It takes money to conduct a successful campaign.  Fortunately, Oakland’s public finance system will match your donation, even from San Francisco residents, up to $100, so we can reach twice as many voters with your dollars.  The contribution limit for Oakland is $600. 

Thank you and hope to see you at the party!

Below is information about Aimee and her campaign.  You can read more about
Aimee at:

As a conscientious objector, Aimee Allison stood up to the U.S. military,
refusing to fight in an unjust war.  During High School, Aimee enlisted as a
combat medic in order to attend Stanford University. As an undergraduate in
college she developed a strong commitment to pacifism while caring for
veterans at the Palo Alto VA Hospital.

As Aimee recalls, \"they were just pieces of people, fractions of body and
mind. Many had been homeless. The VA hospital was overcrowded and they were
getting really bad medical care. That\'s when I started questioning war.\"

When George Bush, Sr. launched the Persian Gulf invasion, Allison stood up
against this unjust war and refused to fight. Threatened with jail, she
fought for, and eventually received, an honorable discharge as a
Conscientious Objector (CO).

Since that time Aimee has been a counselor to military personnel who are
seeking CO status, a public speaker against war, and a nonviolence trainer.
Her work with CO\'s and the anti-war movement has been featured in the
documentary Blood Makes the Grass Grow.

As a city council member, Aimee Allison will stand up to Oakland\'s political

She\'ll work to:
* Invest in schools and return control to Oakland
* Benefit Oaklanders over outside corporate interests
* Create community partnerships for peaceful streets

Public Health through Environmental Health
Thursday, APRIL 14 6:30PM-9:00PM
Sponsored by the Santa Clara County Medical Association and
Collaborative on Health and the Environment

Medicine today focuses most of its attention on diagnosing, controlling or \"curing\" illness after it has developed, while preventative medicine has taken a back seat. Asthma rates, cancer rates, endocrine disorders and learning disorders are all on the rise. Although diet, smoking cessation and exercise are important, a growing body of scientific evidence points to chemical pollution in the air, water, and food as a major contributor to diseases of our modern culture. Research on endocrine disruptors, heavy metals and industrial pollutants has spawned the emerging field of medicine called Environmental Health. Learn about the important connection between environmental health and public health. This event is one in a series of conferences for physicians. This particular event is free and also open to the public. You are welcome to inform others of this event as well.

Also, in case you\'re not on our snail mail list, here\'s the letter we recently sent out:
 April 2005 Dear Friends, 
       It¹s tax time again.  Time for us to raise our voices to assert our conscientious objection to participating in this country¹s illegal and immoral wars.  Time also for NCWTR to ask for your financial support, in the hopes that you will give generously.
       Iraqi civilians and US military personnel continue to be sacrificed in an imperialistic occupation.  Meanwhile, the Bush administration is paving the way for further military adventures in countries such as Iran, Syria, North Korea and Venezuela. Not only are we destroying lives abroad, but our military priorities are quickly eroding our infrastructures and lives here at home, with funding cuts in social services and education.
       Our message, as war tax resisters, is more important than ever.  If we want to build peaceful solutions to the conflicts in this world, we must be willing to re-direct our resources toward nonviolent efforts for social change.  As war tax resisters, our willingness to take risks to create the kind of world we believe to be possible is both a contradiction and a challenge to our country¹s militaristic politics and culture.
       At this time each year, we reach out to our membership, both to offer support, and to ask for it.  Our War Tax Resistance Introductory Workshops have been well attended this year, and there is still one more for the season‹Sunday, April 3rd, 1-4pm at 3122 Shattuck Ave. in Berkeley .
       We also invite you to join in our annual granting of resisted tax dollars:

       Northern California War Tax Resistance depends upon you to keep our community of resistance strong.  We operate on 100% volunteer labor, and have extremely low overhead, but we do need money.   Without your donations we would not be able to maintain our website or keep our phone line open to the frequent calls we receive for information and assistance.  Without your support, we could not organize workshops, provide personal WTR counseling, or respond to media inquiries.  Without your generous contributions, we would not be able to keep hundreds of Bay Area resisters connected within a local community that sustains and encourages them; nor would we be able to coordinate nationally and internationally with other conscientious objectors to military taxation.  Please use the enclosed envelope, and give generously to keep our work going!
for peace, Susan Quinlan for Northern California War Tax Resistance
PS:  We, at NCWTR, know that there are a number of people who donate nearly every time we send out a letter.  We appreciate your generous donations and thank you, in advance, for your ongoing confidence and support!
PPS:  The Agape Foundation has recently agreed to serve as fiscal sponsor for NCWTR.  This means that supporters who would like to make tax-deductible donations, or donate by credit card, through monthly withdrawals or on the internet, will now have that option.  Please pass the word along to anyone you know who might find this an extra incentive to contribute to our work.

# When Birds Were Hats Thu April 14 7:30 PM-9 PM Free
Travel back to the 1890\'s when millions of wild birds were killed each year to supply feathers for ladies\' hats. Appalled by news photos of the carnage, women led the way in launching the Audubon movement by organizing meetings and tea parties, writing pamphlets and lobbying to protect wild birds. Joined by Frank Chapman and other well known ornithologists and museum curators, the campaign culminated in the passage of the Migratory Bird Act of 1918.  Is it only a coincidence that women won the right to vote just two years later? Using slides and exhibits, marvel at the fascinating cast of characters who earned their place in the annals of environmental history. San Francisco Naturalist Society general meeting.

# California Clean Money Campaign
San Francisco Working Group Meeting
Saturday, 4/16 in San Francisco from 11:00am-1:00pm.
Introductory video from 10:40am-11:00am.
Come to the first official meeting of the new San Francisco Clean Money working group!
Would you like to make government accountable to the you, the voters, instead of big-money campaign contributors?
Assemblywoman Loni Hancock has reintroduced her groundbreaking California Clean Money and Fair Elections bill.  AB 583 would bring full public financing of elections to California\'s statewide and legislative offices — letting voters take back control over politics. 
Please come to the San Francisco Working Group\'s monthly meeting if you\'re interested in helping our local efforts to bring Clean Money to California.
An introduction to Clean Money and showing of Bill Moyer\'s \"Road to Clean Elections\" for newcomers will start at 10:40am.
 Saturday, April 16 from 11:00am-1pm. Introduction from 10:40am-11:00am.

# KQED airing The Emotional World of Farmed Animals
This was filmed primarily at Farm Sanctuary and Animal Place in CA.  
There is no graphic footage.  This is a nice way to show people who 
are unfamiliar with farm animals, that they are just as feeling and 
emotional as the animals we call pets.  Beautifully done, thumbs up!

The Emotional World of Farmed Animals 

Showing April 17th at  6 PM on KQED ch. 9 / PBS

The Emotional World of Farm Animals is a delightful documentary for 
viewers of all ages about the thinking and feeling side of animals 
that are all too often just viewed as food. 

Jefferey Masson, author of When Elephants Weep and Dogs Never Lie 
About Love, leads viewers through the personal journey he underwent 
while writing his latest book, The Pig Who Sang to The Moon. This 
journey into the sentient, emotional lives of farm animals brings 
Masson to animal sanctuaries around the country where caregivers and 
the animals themselves tell their harrowing stories of rescue and 
escape . Masson delves into the rich ancestry of these curious and 
intelligent animals and interviews top experts in animal behavior who 
offer scientific perspectives on these amazing creatures.

# IRV rally against Diebold! Tues Apr 19 in Oakland at noon!

Tuesday, April 19 at Noon - 1221 Oak Street in Oakland

Rally to stand up and tell Diebold:

Support instant runoff voting in Alameda County!  We need County 
Registrar Brad Clark and the Alameda Board of Supervisors to GET TOUGH 

Gather in the plaza of the County Administration Building at 1221 Oak 
St. (four blocks from Lake Merritt BART station on Oak St.)



Berkeley voters overwhelmingly passed IRV by 72% last March (Measure 
I).  Oakland and San Leandro voters also approved IRV.  IRV would save 
these cities several hundreds of thousands of dollars, provide majority 
rule, cut down on negative campaigning, and empower voters!


Diebold is thwarting the will of the voters and stonewalling IRV.  
Diebold recently quoted the county an IRV price tag of $2 million 
dollars.  Diebold also told city and county officials they can\'t start 
IRV development for a whole year.


How can they be charging $2 million?  Diebold told Alameda 
County in their bid to get the contract that their equipment can 
\"easily be programmed for IRV.\"  Diebold has already demonstrated IRV 
on their touch-screen equipment.  Diebold already runs IRV elections in 
places like Cambridge, MA and Ireland.  Diebold quoted Burlington, VT 
much cheaper figures for IRV.  Outside elections experts peg the IRV 
upgrade at no more than $50,000.  Just 5 months ago Attorney General Bill 
Lockyer filed a $2.6 million settlement with Diebold for a lawsuit 
alleging \"the Texas-based firm provided false information to obtain 
payments from the state and counties for its electronic voting 
equipment.\"  Is Diebold lying for money again?

*Organized by IRV in Alameda County Now!  E-mail or call (510) 665-5457 to get more info, 
endorse the rally, or join the coalition.

\"Iraq possesses huge reserves of oil and gas – reserves I\'d love
Chevron to have access to.\"
- Chevron CEO Kenneth T. Derr, San Francisco, 1988.

\"So I think this is very promising to the American investors and to
American enterprise, certainly to oil companies.\"
- Bush-Backed Iraqi Vice President and former Finance Minister Abdel Mahdi
plans for a new law to privatize Iraq\'s oil, and open it to foreign
ownership, December 2004.

ChevronTexaco has profited from Iraq\'s oil for a decade. It sold
Iraqi oil under the UN\'s Oil-for-Food Program and it was the first oil
company to sell Iraq\'s oil after the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It refines
that oil in Richmond. ChevronTexaco\'s Iraqi war profits, plus its
unprecedented profits from the increased price of oil due to the war, made
2004 the most profitable year in ChevronTexaco\'s 125-year

ChevronTexaco\'s 2004 net income was more than $13 billion, compared to $7
billion in 2003. ChevronTexaco\'s biggest worry? What to do with all its
excess cash. The answer? Pass the savings on to consumers in the form of
reduced gas prices? NO. Demand that the Bush
Administration end a war to expand U.S. access to oil? NO.
ChevronTexaco – like the other world oil companies, is hording the cash,
putting it into cash reserves for a rainy day and expanding
their global empire by acquiring new companies – like their recent
purchase of oil giant Unocal. The people are fighting back to oppose war
for oil and you can join us on Wednesday, April 27!

*Between 1971 and 1991, Texaco extracted more than 1.5 billion barrels of
oil from the Ecuadorian Amazon, devastating one of the most
biologically fragile places on earth by destroying rainforests and
creating massive oil spills. In order to save millions of dollars, Texaco
simply dumped 20 billion gallons of highly toxic wastes from its
operations into the pristine rivers, forest streams and wetlands, ignoring
industry standards. Now, ChevronTexaco denies the effected peoples of
Ecuador their right to compensation, and instead is trying to get back
into Ecuador for a new round of devastation. The people of Ecuador are
fighting back. They have sued ChevronTexaco for over $6 billion in
compensation for their lost health, land, lives and way of living.

The ChevronTexaco refinery in Richmond spews a deadly array of toxins into
the air, water, and land, including cancer-causing dioxins, on the largely
African American, South East Asian and Latino communities. Since 1999,
there has been a 20% increase in toxic emissions in
Richmond and most of the increase can be attributed to the Chevron
Refinery, the largest polluter in the city. The refinery and plant have
had hundreds of accidents, including major fires, spills, leaks,
explosions, toxic gas releases, flaring and air contaminations
inflicting severe illnesses including asthma and deadly cancers, on the
people of Richmond. Despite decades of requests, demands, lawsuits and
protests, Chevron has continued to place executive salaries and corporate
profits over the health and safety of the community and
workers. The people of Richmond are fighting back and demanding that
Chevron clean up or get out.

Urban Futures: Planning for Sustainable Urban Development

Join us for a presentation by Professor Raquel Pinderhughes, author 
of \"Alternative Urban Futures: Planning for Sustainable Development 
in Cities throughout the World.\" Any consideration of sustainable 
development must focus on utilizing processes and technologies that 
are less damaging to the natural resource base, produce less waste, 
and do not pose a threat to human and environmental health. Focusing 
on water, waste, energy, transportation and food systems, and using 
examples from cites around the world, Professor Raquel Pinderhughes 
will discuss how alternative planning and policy approaches, and 
appropriate technologies can reduce the negative social and 
environmental impacts associated with urban infrastructure and lead 
to improvements in public health, the natural resource base, economic 
development, and an increased standard of living and well-being for 
urban residents. Professor Pinderhughes is Director of the Urban 
Studies Program and Professor of Urban Studies and Environmental 
Studies at San Francisco State University. She teaches courses on 
environmental planning and policy focused primarily on sustainable 
development and environmental justice. She is a resident of Berkeley 
and a member of the Ecology Center Board of Directors.

#   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
