# This Wednesday, June 29 at 5:30 pm in the fourth floor conference room
at the downtown public library, the Coalition for Transit Justice will
be having a meeting. I sincerely hope you all can make it.
We'll be discussing the possibility of forming a more permanent
organization, future campaigns, and any other issues people bring to the
table. 
We fought a great fight against fare hikes and service cuts. I hope this
meeting will serve as a way to regroup, analyze our current situation,
and lay out a plan for future fights to bring social, environmental and
economic justice to our city's public transportation.
Sincerely, Casey Mills 415-775-7110 Ext. 116

NUDITY IN POLITICAL DEMONSTRATION IS PROTECTED UNDER THE 1ST AMENDMENT

Court Stops Florida From Blocking Nude Anti-War Activists

Associated Press, February 14, 2003

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A federal court judge has barred the State of
Florida from trying to block plans by a group of women to gather in a
state park, strip nude and form a peace symbol with their bodies in 
protest of a
U.S. war on Iraq.

U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks wrote an eleven-page order
stating that "nude overtly political speech in the form of a 'living 
nude peace
symbol' is expressive conduct well within the ambit of the First 
Amendment."

Middlebrooks also ruled, however, that the state could erect signs to
notify the public that the protest would be taking place, or it could 
put
screens around the demonstrators.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida went to court in defense
of a naturist and a videographer who planned to record the event.

The demonstration is taking place this morning at John D. MacArthur
Beach State Park on Singer Island, north of West Palm Beach.

#  Playatech To Acquire Burning Man Headquarters June 30, 2005
 Thu June 30 4:00 PM Burning Man Headquarters 
http://www.playatech.com/factorydance.html 
 Playatech today announced that the Burning Man LLC Board of Directors has accepted its offer to acquire Burning Man Headquarters (BMHQ). The closing date of the acquisition is expected to be Thursday June 30. 

Playatech will establish a radical furniture factory on the ground floor of the BMHQ site and will initiate production at 4PM on June 30, for the benefit of all burners. From 4-8PM sawdust will fly as we help you construct massive quantities of Playa Love Seats and Playa Pews to take Home – factory workers will be asked to donate only the wholesale cost of their plywood plus Playatech’s standard $5/sheet royalty to Black Rock Arts Foundation - $25/sheet total. From 6-10PM we will celebrate art, share BYOB booze, and BBQ playa potluck style while we decorate our new furniture. 

At 10PM on June 30, Playatech will announce it is divesting all corporate assets including BMHQ, and will sell the facility back to the LLC for one BM05 event ticket. 

Psyche! Silly rabbits, you know Larry would never give in to a corporate raider. But he does want you to support BRAF by making art at Playatech’s first SF DIY Factory Dance Sale, so he’s lending us his basement – if we leave no trace, maybe he’ll do it again. 

RSVP required - creative insanity drives us to choreograph furniture production as a dance performance with plywood partners, and doing anything this outside the box requires coordination. See vital information at 
http://www.playatech.com/factorydance.html right away for how to participate. 

For more information about Playatech, visit www.playatech.com . For more information about BRAF visit 
http://www.blackrockarts.org . For more information about BMHQ, visit.

Or park in the SnowDrift Parking lot on 3rd St just south of 16th street and walk through the fence.

# SAVE THE DATE! June 30, 7:30pm Party at 1015 Folsom in San Francisco
 Come out and join us as we celebrate the announcement of the Tribe25!

 We asked our members a while back to tell us who the most interesting--and underappreciated--people were in the Bay Area. Well, you've spoken!

This party will celebrate your choices, as well as showcase the important improvements we're launching soon in how our profiles work on the site. All of these folks are using our new profiles to the maximum: to blog, link to sound files, post photos, link to other parts of the web, and customize to their heart's content. We know who all 25 of these people are, but we're keeping the secret for a bit longer!

Details:
	• 	Location: 1015 Folsom (site,  tribe)
We'  ve just been down there to check on all the cool renovations they're putting in. It's gonna be great!

	• 	Doors open at 7:30pm. 
A free drink for each of the first 100 people to show!

	• 	$5 Cover (Free for Members)
 We’re going to charge $5 at the door, but admission is FREE for tribe.net members. Just print your tribe.net profile page and show it at the door (no matter how funky the print job turns out).

	• 	All door proceeds will benefit the Hopscotch Network. 
The Hopscotch Network mobilizes socially conscious young adults to support established non-profits dedicated to improving the lives of children through educational and life-improving support.

	• 	Performances by:

Will Franken (site,  tribe) is "a psychedelic collision of satire and absurdity, blind rage and delicate lyricism...tailor-made for anybody who's ever hated mainstream stand-up comedy."

Suhaila Dance Company is led by Suhaila Salimpour (site,  tribe), whose unique background has prepared her to become one of the world's most sought-after performers, teachers, and choreographers of traditional Middle Eastern dance.

Scissors for Lefty (site) -- their last album was "a polished and multi-layered exploration of danceable beats, synthesized textures and industrial riffing...with early Bowie-esque vocals and dark sensibilities."

Dhamaal Electronic Artist Collective (site,  tribe) "has been feverishly pushing forward hybrids of South Asian and world culture for the last 6 years." Read their rave reviews on tribe.net.

 Folks this will be like all of our previous parties but spiked with red bull, rockstar and mountain dew. From the city-renowned sound quality of 1015 Folsom to the twisted comedy of Will Franken and worldly beats of the Dhamaal collective, we'll keep your head spinning. It'll be the cat's pajamas, it'll be cracker jacks and daisy dukes, it'll be raining fantasia and it'll all be under the tribe.net umbrella!  See you there! http://tribe.net

"Foie gras" is known as animal cruelty worldwide. Over 15 countries have banned its production. Califonia has banned both its production and its sale, effective year 2012. 
 Upon learning of this cruelty, many restaurants around the country have removed this item. Animal activists have tried to convince "Le Bistro" restaurant to ditch this cruelty for months, but the restaurant has refused. Please join us in a demonstration!   Who: You! 
 What: Demonstration against cruel "foie gras" 
 Where: "le Bistro" Restaurant 
 1606 North Main Street, Walnut Creek, CA 94596 
 Why: To get rid of this heinous cruelty! 
 When: Saturday, July 2 from 12:00-2:00PM

# Groove Garden-The Bay Area Freakstop! Sat July 2 9PM $15
 2398 Sir Francis Drake  Planet Fairfax-Marin   
http://www.thegroovegarden.com 
 
 What keeps a just-under-the-radar dance event groooovin' for 5+ years? And why do people keep droppin' in from all over No. Cal? 

And how couldn't this happen in Freaky Funky Fairfax, one of the the Bay Area's last bastions of geekdom, freakers, tweakers, hippies, visionaries, floaters and embracers of every kind of esoteric, arcane, freeform spiritual quest on the friggin' planet! 

Fortunately the common denominator amongst all this is dance-and they dance hard; heartbeats, sweat glands, soles and heels, eardrums, chakras, tailbones - man they all get a good serving at The Groove Garden....so if any of your body parts, spirit parts or other parts need a thump in the right direction then git yer shining self across whatever bridge, metaphorical or literal, and become part of the Groove Garden spin cycle - its on high freak-quency! 

On this particular evening of July 2nd The Groove Garden is very pleased to offer the burgeoning talent of three special guests DJ Gingersnap (opening slot) Amar (chillspace) and Kosho (visuals) who bring to the Groove Garden a perfect melange of dreamy rhythms, saffron grooves, funk-slapped beats and ecstatic mixes. 

DJ Dragonfly spins from 10:30 onwards, unleashing a spirited mix of great new music from across the globe...percussive ruckus, ragged riddims, melodic mana and a deep sense of what keeps a dancefloor animated, activated and levitated! 

And....all the good stuff in the chillspace awaits you: Lydia's Lovin' Organics, massage, great music and more!

# ALL EMPIRES MUST FALL!
West Coast Anti-Capitalist Mobilization Against the G8
July 6-8, San Francisco http://indybay.org

 Call for a West Coast anti-war and anti-capitalist mass convergence, July
6-8 of 2005 in San Francisco, in solidarity with the mobilization against
the Group of Eight (G8) summit in Scotland.

 From July 6-8, 2005, the annual G8 summit we be held at Gleneagles Hotel
in Scotland. The G8 is a forum of the rulers of the eight most
industrialized, wealthy, and powerful states in the world. Every year
they meet to discuss how to further their interests, expand their empire,
and tighten their grip on every aspect of our lives. The consequences
effect us all, and their economic success comes at our expense. The G8
exists to manage and maintain a system whose impacts we see all around
us: war, genocide, wage slavery, mass poverty, structural racism, famine,
environmental destruction, colonial domination in Africa, Asia, & Latin
America, social alienation, and accelerating attacks on working people
around the world.

 But resistance is growing across the globe, in struggles as diverse as
they are numerous. And in recent years, everywhere the G8 has met huge
movements of people have confronted them, both demanding systemic change
and fighting for a global social revolution.

 In recognition of the call to action by Peoples' Global Action for Global
Days of Action to be held against the G8, we are mobilizing for a
regional convergence here in San Francisco. We are calling on everyone
ready to fight for a better world - workers, students, revolutionaries,
anti-capitalists... - from across the North American West Coast to
converge and manifest their resistance on the streets. A Mid-West
regional convergence is being called for Kansas City, and East Coast in
Richmond, Virgina.

Our convergence will be in solidarity with those descending upon the
streets of Scotland to face the G8 head on. We act in solidarity with
revolutionaries taking to the streets to defend working peoples' lives all
around the world: the struggle against neoliberal privatization in
Bolivia; against transit fare increases in Brazil, Chicago, and San
Francisco; against the Minutemen along the border; and against the PG&E
power plant in Hunter's Point.

Global capital will show the full force of its domestic military
capabilities in Scotland - we can confront these summits on our own terms,
and this mobilization is a step in that direction.

Capitalism is everywhere, but so are we - we will converge in our city and
fight it on our own terms!


# Psyche Wall + Django Chapel: Opening Reception Thu July 7 6-8 pm Free
 New Langton Arts premieres two installations that exploit both digital manipulation and sculptural installation as points of departure, July 6 to August 6, 2005.  Psyche Wall, by New York artist Jacob Hartman, and Django Chapel, by the San Francisco-based collaborative team of Jarrett Mitchell and Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough, use technology as a foundation to explore how viewers perceive art in the gallery setting. Hartman's installation uses sculpture, photography and video to simultaneously create and subvert visual illusions, appropriating film production methods to alter sensory perceptions of reality. Mitchell and Yarbrough's installation features sculpture, video and paintings inspired by Giotto's Arena Chapel in Italy and Corbucci's spaghetti western Django.

# YLEM Forum: Patterns in Nature
Wednesday, July 13, 7:30 pm
NEW VENUE --RX Gallery and Bar
(No one under 21 allowed)
132 Eddy St., San Francisco, CA 94102

Getting there:
Two blocks from Powell St. BART Station
Parking garage across the street
Also near 5th and Mission Garage
Some on-street parking, but avoid Turk St.

This forum features Trudy Myrrh Reagan - patterns evident in nature, John Edmark - the math that underlies natural patterns, Scott Draves - software that mimics nature, and Deborah Kennedy - complex ecological interactions.

PROGRAM
Cellular Design

John Edmark will talk about his explorations that led to laser-cut sculptures and mosaics with cell-like structures. He will describe how spiral geometry, Phi (the golden ratio), and the Fibonacci numbers have all contributed to his creative process. A number of his pieces—several of which are kinetic and interactive—will be on display. 

John is a lecturer at Stanford’s Department of Art and Art History, where he teaches design. He has an M.S. in Design from Stanford and an M.S. in Computer Science from Columbia University. Before moving to the Bay Area, he did research at Bell Labs on 3D virtual environments .

My Life among the Patterns

Hexagonal patterns, branching and erosion, fluid flow, you name it, Trudy “Myrrh” Reagan has been using them in her art since 1970. Her strategy has been to use craft or painting media as analogs for the phenomena she admires. Learning why patterns propogate as they do has led her into the realms of science and philosophy. 

Myrrh is the founder of YLEM, and before that, a founding member of the California Crafts Museum, (now merged with the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, SF). She will share not only her work and philosophy, but some hands-on pattern making activities. http://www.myrrh-art.com

Environmental Interconnections
	
The elegant and often intricately crafted conceptual installations, performances and artworks by Deborah Kennedy communicate complex environmental themes through visual drama and metaphor. The artist's use of lighting, sound and symbolism brings issues such as the impact of pesticides on honeybees, the interdependence of life and the importance of sustainable technology to the public. 
	
Kennedy, a passionate educator, uses art as a teaching tool. Her own research into ecology creates a solid framework "to work at the growing edge, where we as a global community are struggling to create new visions that will help solve our environmental problems. My hope is that these new perceptions will help us change how we think about ourselves and our role in the world. Then, perhaps, we can begin to change our actions as individuals and larger communities."
 http://www.greenmuseum.org

Programming Dazzling Patterns 

Scott Draves a.k.a. Spot is a visualist and programmer residing in San Francisco. He is the creator of the Fractal Flame algorithm, the Bomb visual-musical instrument, and the Electric Sheep distributed screen-saver. All of Draves' software artworks are released as open source and distributed for free on the internet. 
	
His award-winning work has appeared in Wired Magazine, the Prix Ars Electronica, the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, and on the dance-floor at the Sonar festival in Barcelona. In 1997 Spot received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University for a thesis on metaprogramming for media processing. Today he regularly projects live video for underground parties and at clubs, and self-publishes SPOTWORKS, a DVD of abstract animation synchronized with electronic music. http://www.spotworks.com

What: Green Convergence at Bohemia for Peace and Justice

When: Friday, July 15th- Sunday, July 17th Where: Bohemian Grove is located in the Sonoma County Russian River community of Monte Rio, near the intersection of Hwy. 116 and Bohemian Highway. It is accessible on the Sonoma Transit bus #20 from Santa Rosa Transit Mall.

Mark Your Calendar. Plan your mid-summer excursion to protest the war profiteers as they come to Bohemian Grove, yet again, to cremate their "Cares of the Marketplace". Join local Greens, veterans' groups, corporate responsibility organizations, faith groups, students, people who have never protested before, and the Green Party of California as they converge at Bohemian Grove and call for an end to the Carelessness of their leaders.

Why: Each year, in mid-summer, the elite members of the Bohemian Club in San Francisco gather for two weeks of revelry and "throwing off the cares of the marketplace" among the redwood groves along Sonoma County's Russian River. The club's members include many Presidents, past and present. George H.W. Bush are members, as well as the late Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and every Republican President since Herbert Hoover.

But the root of the Grove's power is the men who support the efforts of "their' presidents, like they have with the current war in the Middle East. Critics call these gatherings anything but the innocent camaraderie among a group of men who happen to carry the cares of the world on their shoulders all year and just want to party for a couple of weeks.

Corporation executives and owners at the highest levels have gathered with prominent men in politics at Bohemian Grove and built networks that critics say sustains their acquisition of power and wealth throughout the year.

Who: Groups and individuals so far endorsing the Convergence Include Green Party of California, Green Party of Sonoma County, Green Party of Humboldt Co., Green Party of Mendocino County, Emerald Greens, Bohemian Grove Action Network, Veterans for Peace, Mendocino, Veterans for Peace, Garberville, Bill Meyers, Democracy Unlimited*, Dave Cobb, Green Presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, green Presidential candidate. Peter Camejo, Green Vice-Presidential candidate, Peter Phillips, Sonoma State University faculty, expert on Bohemian Grove, International Indian Treaty Council, and a growing list
