# 4/6 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.   --

·	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.

# 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:, 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!!

 Sunday, April 10th, 2005 at 11:00 A.M.  The gathering and the march will last an hour.

Dogs are much-loved pets.  But at the University of California San Francisco, they are nothing more than devices for so-called “medical research” to attract millions of dollars of grant money financed by taxpayers. 

Investigations by animal advocates uncovered recently that UCSF's Dr. Jeffrey Olgin will torment and murder 750 dogs in the next three years, claiming to study the stages of human heart failure.  His team will implant pacemakers to make the dogs' hearts beat outrageously fast; they will also surgically destroy their heart valves – all to cause artificial heart failure, from which to gather artificial data to publish.  The dogs will suffer in great pain for a period of time ranging from several days to as long as six months before they die, depending on the degree of problems and injuries caused. These experiments are not going to advance human medicine because it is already known that dog hearts - both anatomically and at the cellular level - are very different from those of humans, and better  results can be achieved using humane human-based research methods.

Cardiologist John J. Pippin, M.D., F.A.C.C., a member of the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, calls these experiments “contrived” and “futile.” He states, “Better information is available from clinical and epidemiological observations, surgical and procedural results, autopsies, and human studies involving cardiac imaging and electrophysiological tests.”  It is already known that a dog’s heart is significantly different from that of a human anatomically, physiologically, and on the cellular level.

100 dogs and their people will gather at UCSF’s newly built Mission Bay Campus to show public outrage towards UCSF's dog experiments, along with other useless and cruel experiments. 

Animal advocates have made many civilized attempts to persuade the Chancellor J. Michael Bishop to end cruel projects.  As the Institutional Official under the Animal Welfare Act, the Chancellor has the power to end projects, but he chooses not to do so.  UCSF and its researchers receive $166 Million in grants financed by our tax dollars from the National Institutes of Health per year for projects involving animals. In their response to people's letters, UCSF has stated that they will not dialogue with people concerned about their animal experiments. 

What follows is a link to the details of Dr. Jeffrey Olgin's dog experiments along with some of the most egregious experiments at UCSF recently uncovered:

Public Hearing
Marin County Board of Supervisors Resolution
For a Moratorium on Loud Sonars
Known to Harm Whales
What: Public Hearing for Resolution
When: April 12th at 6:30 PM
Where: County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael
(Room 329)

An opportunity to show your support to protect our whales and other marine mammals is coming up on the evening of April 12 at the Marin County Board of Supervisors meeting room at the Marin Civic Center.

We are delighted to announce that the Seaflow Resolution, which opposes the deployment of high intensity active sonar, will be introduced to the Marin Board of Supervisors at their meeting by Charles McGlashan, as his first act of legislative sponsorship.  The Resolution has a much better chance of being passed by the Board if there is significant public support for it.

The Resolution emphasizes that, as Marin residents we are privileged to have whales migrate along our coastline, how we benefit economically from having them here, and how, in turn, we have a responsibility to help protect our whales and marine life from life threatening active sonar.  

We now know that whales and marine life are threatened by active sonar that blasts through thousands of cubic miles, compromising marine habitat and even killing marine life. Recent evidence links whale and dolphin mass strandings and deaths with U.S. Navy mid frequency active sonar exercises.  The Navy would like to be exempt from environmental laws regulating ocean noise, despite the increasing global consensus that ‘ocean noise’ is threatening marine life. It is very important to note that there are other more benign technologies already, or soon to be deployed, that do not harm marine ecosystems and can perform the same function as these sonars.

Please email this to your friends and join us!

For further information about Seaflow and/or the Resolution, please refer to the Seaflow website

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.

6:30PM - Honorable Ira Ruskin, 21st Assembly District * Chairman of the 
Committee on Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials
7:00PM - Breast Cancer and the Environment: State of the Evidence
*Jeanne Rizzo, Executive Director, Breast Cancer Fund

Shortly after highway 17 crosses above you  turn right on Empey Way. At the end of the street turn left into the parking lot . 700 Empey Way is a two story brick building.

#   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
