# The “Celebrating Women’s Leadership in Sustainable Development” event is coming together beautifully! Thank you all for your help! We will be having a planning meeting this Friday, May 13th (is it already May?!?) at 5:30 at the Pacific Environment office at 311  California St. Suite 650. (A few blocks from the Embarcadero BART station—office is on California at Battery). For those of you who can’t make it in person, there will be a call-in option:
Conference call number: 1 888 276 4201. When prompted the participant code is 544539.
We hope you can make it!
Again, we are thrilled to work with you all on this important project celebrating women! Thank you all for your interest, and please send me a quick email letting me know whether or not you can make it.
Attached is the most recent flyer for the event, and below is a text version. PLEASE take a moment to spread this info to your networks and listserves, and if you are a co-sponsor, please post to your websites and alert your membership if you have not done so already.
In addition, we are building a Clothesline of Environmental Heroes which will feature dozens of the incredible women who are working around the world throughout the venue space. This will recognize women working on the frontlines in their communities and who may not otherwise have the opportunity to be honored. We will hang their pictures and descriptions on a clothesline that will break up the space.
We would like to ask that you and/or your organization help contribute several pictures and stories of outstanding women you have worked with over the years. The more you can send us, the better! This may be something you can put together relatively quickly—it may also be a great volunteer/intern project if you so choose.
If you can, please send us these as one-page documents—with a woman’s picture and “story”. These can be any women you have worked with who you find represent leadership in any of Dr. Maathai’s three arenas of environmental sustainability, democracy, or human rights with a paragraph description below.
If you haven’t already, please submit your pictures/stories to or

#  ArgusFest presents  Flicks and Food at  Red Victorian Peace Cafe  1556 Haight St San Francisco, CA 94117 
 Conversation at 6 pm. Film starts at 6:30 pm 
Feel free to stop in at any time. Lively talk and conscious expanding Human Rights films. 
 Friday-May 13th  THE CORPORATION-145min 
 explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Footage from pop culture, advertising, TV news, and corporate propaganda, illuminates the corporation's grip on our lives. Taking its legal status as a "person" to its logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist's couch to ask "What kind of person is it?" Provoking, witty, sweepingly informative, The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics - including Milton Friedman ,Noam Chomsky ,Naomi Klein , and Michael Moore - plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.

Create more love... a Schevene poetic enchantment Fri. Only!!!    
 One Chance Only Friday May 13th 6 pm  Suggested donation $1
 Enjoy a richly opulent experience while indulging in your one chance to visit with my whole family in one vibrant evening.
 Magnus Schevene:
 "Refill the cup of your heart with divine love. My family is in town visiting until Saturday morning.
 This is your one chance to meet my family, while sharing in bringing-to-life enchanting poetry, authored by my now disabled father. Poetry in the tradition of Rumi- poetry that alters consciousness.
 This is the opposite of a bullet point workshop-the opposite of linear rational reductionism. Become empowered and refreshed to your depths by this gathering. If you want to attend, just show up at Vara this Friday-ideally at 6 pm. I know if you are meant to attend you already know you will. If you have any questions, need any assistance, or anything at all to be able to participate, call me (or Vara) at 415 602 9280 (or 510 526 9642). Below are some links-to maps, to web sites. Check them out. I look forward to seeing you."  In love - Magnus

# the human ascension SF Fri May 13 9pm-2am  
All performers, artists, musicians & mystics.Come create magik. 
he Magician's wherehouse  672 South Van Ness (btwn 17th & 18th) 
The intention: to use one of the most amazing art spaces in the city to create a night of artistic experimentation. We will attempt to break the barriers of what is live performance by using spontaneous artist collaboration, ritual, and visionary intentional gathering of the minds to invoke transformation. The inside of this space looks like a magician’s layer mixed with an Atlantis goddess temple. It has a built in stage, props, altars and goddess sculptures. You have to step into the surreal magic of this place to believe it. The owners who built it were geniuses. 

We are inviting all artists, performers, mystics, healers to bring their tools, toys and talismans with the intention of creating a space for hybrid fusion. No expectations or rules are being layed down. There is no one main group behind this- it is a few people with performance backrounds who to bring more people together to experiment, exchange ideas and party. The outcome of the night will be based on the power of those who show up and their ability to collaborate with the infusion in the moment. This will be the first night of experimentation in this sacred space that is being given to us. We hope to nourish the growth of a project like this and see all visionaries from already established groups come together to open the doorway of the human ascension in a live setiing. To come together in the moment to create collective magik and ritual. Anyone who comes should feel free to create and contribute in a live setting no matter what your backround is. The vibe will be intimate and transforming. The hope is to create a series of events rooted in: the psychedlic circus, surreal cabaret, shamanic journeying and mythological storytelling manifested live in the moment.

CACI International, a private corporation, provided many of the
interrogators at Abu Ghraib prison. Its employees were directly
implicated in the torture scandal. But CACI has faced no consequences so
far. Not one of its employees has been prosecuted, its contract for
"intelligence services" in Iraq was renewed last August, and it
earned over $1 billion in revenue last year - 95% of it from your tax
dollars. Plus, CACI continues to do business undisturbed in San
Francisco and dozens of other cities around the U.S.

This Monday, May 16th, CACI's vice president and other top executives will
be in town to present at an investors' conference at the Westin St.

# Sat May 14 Marin Living Foods Pot Luck and Speaker Gathering 

Pot Luck and Speaker Gathering by the 
Marin Living Foods Community 
Our Featured Speaker Will Be DR. KARIN DINA 

Karin Dina's enthusiasm and study of health has spanned 1 ½ decades. While
in college, she experienced fatigue that no doctor was able to help her
with. Instead, she decided to find the path to health on her own. She read
countless books and did much research on achieving health over the next few
years. After becoming a vegetarian, she experienced an increase in her
energy level, but it was not until she started eating a largely raw diet
that her fatigue completely abated. In addition, she felt an abundance of
energy that she had never felt before in her life. Since 1990, she has
followed a vegan diet consisting of 80-100% raw foods and has devoted her
life to educating people on how to achieve optimum wellness through diet,
exercise, and emotional balance.

Karin holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of
Connecticut. In 1997, she graduated from the University of Colorado with a
Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and Magna Cum Laude honors. She studied
naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University, where she was an honors student,
and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic West with Magna Cum Laude
honors in March of 2005. Throughout her undergraduate and graduate
coursework, she studied advanced nutrition and nutritional biochemistry
extensively. Upon receiving her California chiropractic license, she will be
practicing chiropractic and nutrition counseling at Vitality Health Center
of Marin in San Rafael, CA.

Her talk for the Marin Living Foods May potluck will include raw and living
food recipe demonstrations with information on the scientific reasons for
eating plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and sprouts. Please
join us for this fun and informative talk! For more info please go to: or

                                                        When  : On Saturday,
May 14th, from 6 til 9pm,

Hts. San Rafael, CA 94903 (directions below)
Cost:  $3 donation and Raw food dish to serve 8, per person

   6:00 pm start. PLEASE try to be on time.  We eat at 6:15 and our speakers
generally start at 7:00

Please bring a raw food dish of your choice to serve 8 people making sure to
review the guidelines for food below. 
*********** Guidelines for Food *********** 
Please prepare your dishes with raw, organic (at least pesticide/herbicide
free), vegetarian (vegan - no animal products) ingredients. Nothing cooked,
steamed, baked or otherwise heated above 105 degrees is appropriate for this
potluck. Dehydrated foods and dried fruits are fine as long as they have
been prepared within the temperature guideline above. Tofu and most seaweeds
are not raw foods. Please pay attention to what might go into your dish;
oils, vinegar, spices, it raw, healthy, etc. Could it be added
later at the potluck by those who want it? 
Some attendees have been on the raw path for 20+ years so we must adhere to
these seemingly strict guidelines. There are some wonderful raw foods
cookbooks available at the local health food stores for new ideas, or you
can go to for lots of great recipes. Beautiful leafy
greens and veggies presented in a wide variety of (raw) ways are always a
winner. Be creative, enjoy yourself and have fun! If in doubt - leave it
out! Call or email if you need ideas or have questions.

Now you can send your friends to <http://WWW.MARINRAWFOOD.COM>   for potluck

******* Plates and Silverware ******* 
Please bring your own plate and silverware. Not only is it ecologically
beneficial, it's a much more pleasing dining experience.

# TEMPORARY WILD ZONE 14th, 15th and 16th-May 2005, VALENCIA NEAR THE VALENCIA CITY, IN MEDITERRANEAN COAST (SPAIN) ANTICIVILIZATION GATHERING. We think that there can be two kinds of debates in the morning. First a debate that should be introduced by someone involved in the issue debated, as a way to initiate the meeting. After a short break, a more general meeting to share ideas and experiences related to the issue that has been debated before. In the afternoon we should gather together to share and know experiences that are working already. Later, the practical workshops. May 14th:Morning: welcome and the first meeting to organize the programme or activities. Afternoon: debating the development policy. Hold by someone from the Itoiz or another big infrastructure. Practical workshops. May 15th:Morning: debating the action and the ways to act it. Hold by someone from the struggle against OMG. Afternoon: International relations. The introduction will be in charge to someone involved in supporting the Papua people or the Mapuches. Practical workshops. May 16th:Morning: the possibility of making an international ant civilization web. Afternoon: General meeting to exchange and share. Starting the farewell. And performance neo-luddite. We have already set up some of the practical workshops: making soap, cryptography without computers, applied botanic knowledge, mankala, organic agriculture, energetic crisis, actual applications to spearthrower. Vegetarian food, with a vegan option will be prepared, and we are going to need help for making it. You need to bring plate and fork. And because we are going to camp, you need to bring your tent and sleeping bag. The night time will be for personal relations and fun. MORE INFO WRITE TO

 Polo Fields, Golden Gate Park  FREE and open to the public
folks usually end up here after bay to breakers.

# the space cowboys will be having sound (though i don't know in what
capacity, really) at 505 divisidero (between hayes and fell).  this seems
like a good spot to meet cuz a) it involves breaks, b) it's after things
thin out a bit in the race, and c) it is most definitely *after* the hill.
they'll have music starting early, but i'm thinking we can meet up at 9
and then shortly thereafter head down towards the panhandle in the throng
of crazies.  i am aware that some of you may be *ending* a day at that
time rather than *starting* one--please come join us for a bit anywayze :)

By partnering with other organizations in the production of music benefits and awareness-raising activities, NextAid channels emergency and long-term aid to African children in need. Proceeds from the event will go towards the building of an earth-friendly multi-purpose center for Youth for a Vision, a non-profit organization comprised of teens mostly orphaned by AIDS who use theater and music to teach AIDS awareness to their peers, literally saving lives.  This center will serve as a template for future centers throughout Africa. One of the center’s buildings will be named after Wert Terry.

# Fred Burks' Fascinating Journey Sunday, May 15
3pm Friends House 7pm Christ Church UMC, Santa Rosa

Dear Santa Rosa friends, My son Fred Burks has become somewhat of a celebrity through his website on government cover-ups and the living of his values, resulting in a long front page article in the Wall Street Journal February 22 (viewable at his website

He will be speaking in Santa Rosa Sunday May 15 at 3pm in Friends House and 7pm at Christ Church United Methodist (Yulupa off Hoen). His subject is described below and a second email will include a chronology of his interpreting experiences from March 1995 to November 2004 when he terminated his contract with the State Department largely due to a new secrecy clause he would have been required to sign.

Fred has served as State Department interpreter (Indonesian language) for President Bill Clinton and VP Al Gore, Secretary of State Albright, Indonesian President Megawati, World Bank President Wolfenson, Asst. Sec of Defense Wolfowitz, and President George W. Bush (several times), among many others.

Feel free to publicize these talks and invite folks from the Peace and Justice Center, ACLU, the Santa Rosa Interfaith Ministerial Association, the Santa Rosa Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Sierra Club, and others to come on Sunday the 15th at one of the two times. Hope to see you on the 15th.

Best regards,
Paul Burks
United Methodist Minister (retired)
Friends House Resident
684 Benicia Drive #7
Santa Rosa, CA 95409
Fred Burks is the son of Methodist minister Paul Burks and a former presidential interpreter. Fred will discuss his fascinating journey up the ranks of the US Department of State as an Indonesian language interpreter. Starting from his first assignment in 1986 to his resignation last November because of excessive secrecy requirements, he will discuss some of the unusual things he has seen in secret meetings. He will also share how making the important decision to reveal these secrets eventually ended in a front page article on him in the Wall Street Journal this past February.

Fred's deepest commitments are to what's best for all and to opening to divine guidance in all things. He manages several websites which are listed below: - Every person in the world has a heart - Revealing major cover-ups & working together for the good of all - Building a Global Community for All - Strengthening the Web of Love that interconnects us all

Through these websites, Fred is now working with a large network of researchers and love workers around the planet to promote personal and global transformation through love and empowerment. He has no doubt that by all working together, we are building a brighter future for ourselves and our children.

CACI International, a private corporation, provided many of the
interrogators at Abu Ghraib prison. Its employees were directly
implicated in the torture scandal. But CACI has faced no consequences so
far. Not one of its employees has been prosecuted, its contract for
"intelligence services" in Iraq was renewed last August, and it
earned over $1 billion in revenue last year - 95% of it from your tax
dollars. Plus, CACI continues to do business undisturbed in San
Francisco and dozens of other cities around the U.S.

This Monday, May 16th, CACI's vice president and other top executives will
be in town to present at an investors' conference at the Westin St.
Francis Hotel. Come help us confront CACI's directors and clients about
their involvement in torture and launch a campaign to shut down CACI's San

 Independent Media in a Time of War- Documentary 29 minutes 
Amy Goodman observes how the US media in wartime fails to uphold it’s important democratic duties. According to Noam Chomsky, “In order for democracy to be ‘democratic’ the media has to fulfill two functions: 
1) The media must report the news fairly, completely, and without bias. 
2) The media must function as a watchdog for the public against abuses of power.” 
 As good man reminds us throughout the video, the media, has failed to provide accurate, unbiased information to the citizens about the actions and policies of the current administration’s war on Iraq. Goodman untangles the role of the media in reporting complex wartime events and provides a context in which to think about their role when she asks, “If this were state media, how would it be any different?” Goodman advocates for independent media and their role in providing an alternative to the “corporate lens” through which we view the important democratic tradition of debate and dissent in times of war. 
Voices Against War; F-15 NYC- Documentary21:43 minutes 
“Voices against War” is a documentary chronicling the experiences of citizens who took to the streets in Manhattan in union with millions of people around the world on February 15, 2003 in a day called the “The World Says No to War” By the end of the weekend, demonstrations had been held in more than 600 cities across the world. Organizers have called “The world Says NO to War” possibly the largest day of protest in the history of the world. Major cities across the world reported crowds ranging from 60,000 to 1,500,00 filling the streets to protest the war in Iraq. 

Friday-May 20th 
PEACE ONE DAY -80 minutes documentary 
is the story of one man’s attempts to persuade the global community via the United Nations to officially sanction a global ceasefire day; a day of non-violence; a day of Peace. 

This documentary charts the remarkable 5-year journey of the filmmaker as he meets heads of state, Noble Peace Laureates, aid agencies, freedom fighters, media moguls, the innocent victims of war and, eventually, everyone who was anyone at the UN. 

An individual genuinely can make a difference: The UN International Day of Peace is now fixed in the calendar on 21st September annually. The real challenge has now begun - to get the world to unite on a day fast approaching.

# YLEM Forum: ARCHIMEDIA from Australia
Tues, May 17, 7:30 pm
McBean Theater, Exploratorium
3501 Lyon St., San Francisco, CA 94123
FREE, Open to the public and wheelchair accessible
Sponsored by YLEM: Artists Using Science and Technology

Contact: Trudy Myrrh Reagan,, 650-856-9593
Full information at:

Molly Hankwitz and David Cox of Archimedia are here from Australia to present a formidable body of work, the result of a design and research collaboration that started in 1998. Using film and architecture, Archimedia uniquely interprets the overlap between digital media and architectural, public spaces in its lectures, performances and presentations. “Cities of the future,” “blobchitecture,” surveillance, hackers and “spaces of command and control” are some of the themes to be explored.

In their ongoing experiments in “Urban Strechnology” (the study of the street) they have come up with a “Tool Kit” for micro broadcasting. Their 15-minute infomercial boasts about it.

We’ll also experience “Ambient Unities,” a sound collage in which audio tracks, networked sounds, film sound tracks, Napster and live mix have been employed to comment on the modern city in film and political culture.

As well, they have experiments to show about “laptop cinema” and the small screen, which consisted of the screening and trading of cinema in public places during a series of workshops they gave. They’ll show a short film made on a wrist cam.

The Archimedia study, “Lost Cities/Spaces of Command and Control,” looks at our 9/11 anxiety in relation to cities, fortress structures and networked culture. We’ll see excerpts of it. Finally, “Space of Command and Control” looks at the Panopticon (they see all you do, you can’t see them). 

These will be followed by a discussion of your 21st century survival tools: “diy” navigation and personalized augmented reality.

 Archimedia is David Cox, Melbournian digital media artist and award winning filmmaker and Molly Hankwitz, media artist, net and new media writer. They have presented at Artspace, (Sydney),Other Cinema, Artists Television Access, Gallery 21, Royal Institute of Melbourne, Brisbane Powerhouse, Metro Arts, ThisIsNotArt, and Straight Out of Brisbane festivals.

# Proctor & Gamble Global Day of Action

IDA has been boycotting Procter & Gamble (P&G) since 1989 because they
blind, burn, maim and kill thousands of animals each year in product
tests that are cruel, outdated and not required by law. While P&G
claims to lead the industry in developing alternatives to animal
testing, they continue to test products on animals even while hundreds
of other companies have stopped.

IDA sponsors a Global Day of Action Against P&G each year to focus
attention on their cruelty and hypocrisy. Last year over 140 boycott
P&G events took place all over the world - from Auckland to Aberdeen -
making it one of the largest days of action of its kind in the world.
This year's event takes place on Saturday, May 21st, and we hope
you'll join us by organizing or participating in an event.

There are plenty of ways to get involved, from staging a protest
outside of a P&G facility or a store that sells P&G products to
organizing a P&G product return in your community. Contact IDA at
(415) 388-9641 or for brochures and other materials to
distribute. For information about how P&G tortures animals and more
ways that you can make a difference, visit

From 12 noon to 1 pm, we'll protest at KFC, 1900 Irving St (at 18th/19th Ave).  Make a statement for the chickens and against KFC's cruelty!  Here's the link to this event:
From 1:15 to 2:30 pm, we'll have lunch at Shangri-La (right down the street from the KFC), at 2026 Irving St (at 21st Ave).  Shangri-La is a delicious, healthy, and reasonably priced all vegetarian, almost all vegan Chinese restaurant.  Here's the link to this event:
And here's the BAV Ultimate Guide link for Shangri-La:
From 3 - 5 pm, we'll have the letter writing party at the Red Vic (which is easy to get to on public transportation from Shangri-La, and folks are welcome to head over with me).  At the letter writing parties, we write letters to politicians and businesses on a variety of issues related to animals.  The link to the letter writing party, which describes it and how to get to the Red Vic, is here: Event location: Red Victorian Peace Center, 1665 Haight Street, corner of Cole. SF
Also, from 3 - 3:30, Nora will be doing a mini-workshop on letter writing at the Red Vic.  Nora's had letters published in leading national newspapers and magazines, and this is a great opportunity for people who want to speak up for animals, but would appreciate some guidance from someone experienced in writing letters.  Nora will also stick around and be available to answer questions for the rest of the letter writing party.  Here's the link about Nora's presentation:

 One Brick ( is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides support to other local non-profit and community organizations by creating a unique, social and flexible volunteer environment for those interested in making a concrete difference in the community. This enables people to get involved, have an impact and have fun, without the requirements of individual long-term commitments.

 Here's a little more information about the upcoming event:

Come join us at this awesome event! This year, not only will we be providing volunteer support, but one Brick will also be a beneficiary of the event! 

A favorite annual tradition in the Bay Area, this free event, featuring a concert with The Wallflowers, the John Butler Trio and Kathleen Edwards, is topped off with one of the best fireworks displays in the country. The gigantic fireworks show over the Bay will explode in harmony with a soundtrack broadcast on KFOG at 104.5FM and 97.7FM.

Join One Brick as we help to support this fun community event by checking IDs for alcohol beverage sales, pouring beer, staffing a One Brick information booth, and helping to monitor recycling bins to ensure proper separation of recyclable items. Come early and enjoy the free music and then join us to help out for the rest of the evening.

Celebrating Water Democracy
Community Speak-out for a Global Treaty on the Human Right to Water

United Nations World Environment Day 2005 
June 2nd, 2005, 2:30- 4:30PM @ The Metreon, San Francisco 

From Bolivia to Bayview-Hunter's Point, from Ghana to Alpaugh in
California's Central Valley, communities are organizing for the right to
safe and affordable water. This basic human right is being threatened by
privatization, pollution, industrial agriculture and environmental
racism, among many other injustices. 

Celebrating Water Democracy! seeks to advance World Environment Day
2005 Accord Goal 7 on water, particularly Action 21, by creating a space
for open and critical dialogue that encourages collaborative
partnerships among those who are working to ensure the right to clean
and affordable water.  This event will promote participatory and
environmentally sustainable models of water management as well as
highlight innovative community-led public partnerships.

Community representatives will provide testimony to a panel of water
rights experts in support of a new global initiative calling for a UN
Convention on the Right to Water. This legally-binding framework
promoting the human right to water would take precedence over
international trade laws that grant corporations rights to commodify and
privatize water/water utilities.  It would also give communities a
powerful tool to hold their governments accountable for providing safe
water for all. For more information on this global effort please see and

COLLABORATING  ORGANIZATIONS: Public Citizen's Water for All, Ghana
National Coalition Against Privatization of Water, International Working
Group on the Convention on the Right to Water, Communities for A Better
Alpaugh, African International Mission, Hesperian Foundation, Ella Baker
Center for Human Rights, Women of Africa, Alliance for Democracy,
Environmental Justice Coalition for Water, National Wildlife Federation

 Light refreshments will be served.

#   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
