  San Francisco  ; Live Afrobeat music, Brazilian drums, gypsy jazz, and political puppets are part of a wild local celebration for World Environment Day, a week-long international conference being held for the first time in the U.S. Top local musicians will perform from a solar-powered stage to raise money for the Bio-Fuel Caravan Coalition, a local group of performers that tour the country performing energy education, music, and public outreach.	Headlining the clean-fuel concert – to be held at the Cellspace -  is San Francisco’s own 11-piece Afrobeat orchestra, Aphrodesia, which tours the country in a bus powered by vegetable oil. The band will give tours of their bus before their performance. Local Brazilian percussion master Emiliano Benevides will perform with Batucada 1000, a collective of the Bay Area’s top Brazilian musicians. The Big Tadoo Puppet Crew, who also travel in a bio-fuel bus and are members of the Bio-Fuel Caravan Coalition, will perform their acclaimed energy act, Dr. FeelFine’s Cure-all Circus Sideshow. Taarka, a unique ‘seismic gypsy hypno-jazz’ group from Portland, Or., will also perform.

# PV/EV = Solar Power + Electric Vehicles Sat June 4 10:00 a.m.-12 noon Free
Why buy gas and drive a polluting car when you could be in a zero-emission electric vehicle and creating electricity from sunshine? Adding solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to your home and using an electric vehicle (EV) can be a winning combination for both your wallet and the planet.

No gas, no oil, no emissions, and no profits for slimy dictators and terrorists.

Learn more and ride in an EV at the PV/EV Workshop on Saturday, June 4, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at The Francisco School (a solar-powered school), 300 Gaven Street, between Boylston and Bowdoin, San Francisco, near the interchange of Highways 280 and 101.

Speakers: Sherry Boschert of the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association ( and Greg Kennedy of Occidental Power Solar and Cogeneration, a licensed solar contractor.

Please r.s.v.p. to, or call 415-681-7716.

Solar PV panels create clean electricity. The monthly payment for a PV system can be lower than your previous electricity bill, lowering your monthly costs instantly. And if you drive an electric vehicle (EV), your PV system offsets not just household electricity but costly gasoline, because EVs run on electricity. PV/EV creates power without polluting and provides personal transportation in non-polluting cars.

Filmmaker and Activist available for telephone interviews
WHAT: Directed by Franny Armstrong, “McLibel” follows the
15-year story of London Greenpeace activists Helen Steel and Dave
Morris as they are transformed from anonymous campaign volunteers into
unlikely global heroes.
In 1990, McDonald’s sued the single father and part-time bar worker for
libel in 1990, for distributing “What’s Wrong With McDonald’s” leaflets
after “McSpies” infiltrated their non-profit group. The leaflet listed
15 reasons why the corporation did not have the public’s best interests
in mind. The two activists defended themselves in the longest running
legal battle in English history, and won. The case has been described
as “the biggest corporate PR disaster” ever.

Please prepare your dishes with raw, organic (at least pesticide/herbicide

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

# June 11, 12 Carpool to Harmony Fest


Celebrated authors, Joanna Macy and Richard Heinberg, headline an evening presented by the East Bay Post Carbon Solutions Group, Beyond Oil II, on June 14, 2005 at 7PM at the First Congregational Church, 2501 Harrison Street in Oakland.  This evening of conversation will give our community the tools to better understand how to begin preparing for a time of energy scarcity and climate change.

In the context of what she calls "the Great Turning," Joanna will speak about awakening to the reality of climate change and the depletion of oil resources, thereby moving from denial into action.  Her talk will prepare us for fully absorbing Richard's presentation.
Richard's presentation will be actual practice for the awakening Joanna describes.  He will report back from the 4th Annual Conference of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO) in Lisbon.  He will also discuss practical steps we can take now in our own communities to prepare for these changes.

Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, Ph.D. (, scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology, is also a leading voice in movements for peace, justice, and a safe environment.  Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science.  She serves as adjunct professor to the Starr King School for the Ministry, the University of Creation Spirituality, and the California Institute of Integral Studies.  Among other works, she is the author of Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World. 

Richard Heinberg , journalist and lecturer, is a core faculty member of New College of California, where he teaches courses on Energy and Society, and Culture, Ecology and Sustainable Community.  His monthly MuseLetter has been nominated for an Alternative Press Award, he has been published in many journals, and his books have been translated into eight languages.  Richard travels internationally to speak on the subject of Peak Oil.  His latest books are: The Party's Over: Energy Resources and the Fate of Industrial Societies; and Powerdown: options and actions for a post-carbon world.

Sponsored by Post Carbon Institute, Ecology Center, KPFA, and City Repair Oakland West (CROW).

# 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
