Indymedia UK - London Bombing is Covert Government Operation...

Ohhh boy!!  What a con job!  BREAKING | London Rocked by Multiple Blasts  
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2005/070705Z.shtml

Just when the poop is hitting the fan on both sides of the atlantic and blair is in as big trouble as bush - both are cold hearted, bold faced LIARS, (yeah, Blair got re-elected the way bush got "re-selected"), we have another 911.  Well, they are clever to not do it in the US again.  But since US/UK are joined at the hip, well the UK will do just as well as another "terror" attack on US soil.  And now that Americans are cooling to the war, we can get the Brits to be the patriotic war mongers.  I can just hear it now: "We told you if we don't defeat them there, they'd bring it here" and see what happened in Britain.  Neocons can use it the same way. Well, we knew they had to do something to bring up bush's poll numbers. A true Rovian plan. Wonder how they agreed this should be in UK this time.

If you believe this was an al-qaeda-type terrorist attack, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.  This is the governments attacking their own citizens and blaming the terrorists to continue to the war.  Period.

What our answer should be is:  "We don't see it that way.  We see people saying:  "you bomb us, we'll bomb you"  So the answer is to GET OUT OF IRAQ AND STOP BOMBING INNOCENT PEOPLE AND COUNTRIES"  US & UK are ever bit as much terrorists as Al-Qaeda. This is self-defense, (LOL, if it was true that al-q did it, which it is NOT) but we can spin it back on them anyway.


"British Transport Police said some of the power surges had caused 
explosions. Surges took place at Aldgate, Edgware Road, King's Cross, 
Old Street and Russell Square stations."

According to reports a bus has exploded in central London just 
minutes after a number of blasts on London's Underground. It's 
beginning to sound more and more like bombings in several different 
stations. It doesn't sound good.  On tv reports of people seeing the 
explosions.  Reporters calling it "a major incident".  Will there be 
a cover-up???  

G8 or OLYMPICS ??? 
Sky reports "roof of a bus blown off"

People hurt in Tube 'power surge' (BBC News)
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/london/4659093.stm  

Several people have been injured after explosions blamed on a power 
surge led to the whole London Underground network being closed down.

British Transport Police said some of the power surges had caused 
explosions. Surges took place at Aldgate, Edgware Road, King's Cross, 
Old Street and Russell Square stations.

A spokesman said there were "walking wounded" at Liverpool Street 
station but one person's life was reported to be "at risk". London 
Fire Brigade said four crews were at Liverpool Street and more were 
on their way.

Explosions In London: Highly Suspicious Cirsumstances

Fox News has carried a report from AP saying that Scotland Yard had prior knowledge. Israeli News is reporting that "The Israeli Embassy in London was notified in advance, resulting in Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remaining in his hotel room rather than make his way to the hotel adjacent to the site of the first explosion, a Liverpool Street train station, where he was to address and economic summit."

The warning contradicts the fact that the original explanation of a power surge went out for an hour or more. They knew it was an attack but put out a false explanation. Plus why did Netanyahu get a warning and the victims didn't?

(from John Perkins, author of "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man")
Regarding the New Round of Debt "Cancellation" 6/17/2005
 I want to praise all attempts at debt forgiveness for developing countries. However, most of the 18 who are slated by the G8 for a $40 billion reduction have been forced to accept draconian measures in order to receive this "generosity." These measures include privatizing their energy and water sectors (selling them to US and other foreign companies), dropping subsidies to farmers and other businesses who might compete with ours, and dropping trade barriers -- at the same time accepting that we will continue to subsidize our farmers and other businesses and to erect trade barriers. I hate to be the messenger of bad news, but much of this debt forgiveness is a ploy to once again help the rich get richer, while making it look like we are benefiting the poor. Another EHM* strategy!  John Perkins   Economic Hit Man

# 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!

# CAFTA House Vote - Your presence is NEEDED 
at Anna Eshoo's office in Palo Alto, Thurs July 7, 5:30 pm
 
The Senate passed CAFTA by a vote of 54-45 yesterday.  Our supposedly
Democratic senator Diane Feinstein was one of the 10 democracts who
voted YES.   Please, give her an earful - (202) 224-3841 or at
http://feinstein.senate.gov/contact.html

The vote now moves to the House and is expected to come to floor after
the July 4 recess.  Anna Eshoo has still not announced her opposition
to CAFTA.  Vigil and Picket are planned for Thurs, July 7, 5.30-7pm at

# 1st Thursday Art receptions at 49 Geary: 5:30-7:30 pm
20 galleries in a 5 story building! every first Thursday: Free.


# 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.
 New Langton Arts 1246 Folsom @ 8th/9th

# Thursday, July 7th, 7-9:45pm, 
 Franklin Johnson will be in San Rafael for a Free Intro Evening
 for  Foreign Currency Trading: How you can control your own $Money
 Location: 101 Lucas Valley Rd, San Rafael, 94903
 (NOTE: Different location)

 (Take the Lucas Valley Rd Exit, and go to the WEST side of the freeway.
 Go LEFT at the 2nd driveway, into the brown wood office - bldg parking lot
 We'll be in the conference room on the bottom floor)

 I have come to realize that, unlike any other moment in our past, we are at a special confluence of access to information, sophistocation of technology, chat room accessability and flow of communications, and ease of entry into trading. (ie, 3 years ago it cost $5,000 to open a trade account; today you can open a trade account for as little as $300.)

 More than that, the level of education and mentoring, the support of teambuilding and cross-community sharing fostered by this educational company, makes for strong connections and shortens the learning curve of this technology... a skill that you'll always have. I just returned, along with 15 others of us from the Bay Area, from the headquaters of FX Trainer in Vancouver, Canada. We also visited the largest trading office in the company in Seattle, WA. I was extremely impressed and moved by what I saw.

 We met with the originator and chief economist, Zoltan Vass, Jason Goldsmith, Exec VP, and others. We had advanced training and coaching in trading, along with money management and goal setting sessions. There is much more to tell you about what we learned, including the vision and integrity of the company, additional trading techniques, etc. 

 I hope you'll join me, and others involved in this educational program to learn to currency trade, and see what it may contribute to you, your future, and your visions for a better world.

 UPCOMING MEETINGS:
 July 20th, Wednesday evening, in Sebastopol
 July 21st, Thursday evening, in Marin (TBD)

 Come and at least learn how the international currency flows worldwide, and how that affects you. Then see if it's an education in finances and a diversification of how you create money in your life that works for you. Guess what? It's fun, too!

 Best regards,  Teri Bigio 415.203.3323 TeriBigio@aol.com

# LC-50.5 : Larry's Fiftieth-And-A-Half Birthday Party
Cardiac Beats Since 1955
This Saturday, July 9th, 2005 - noon to 5:05PM
Cesar Chavez Park at the Berkeley Marina
Music
Laura La Gassa starts the day with that old skool aceeed from 1995!
Followed by the birthday boy meself spinning a more-retro-than-retro extended set of music from the last five decades of my life: EasyListening.Hawaiian.Pop.Rock.Space.Dub.Ska.Industrial.Electronica.Jazz.Etc
And then to bring the day to perfection, DJ Stonie!
Location
If you don't know how to get to Cesar Chavez Park at Berkeley Marina, try entering "Breakwater Dr and Spinnaker Way, 94710" into an online mapping service like Google Maps. That intersection will be good enough to generate driving directions from where you are to Spinnaker Way at the Berkeley Marina.
Here's a nice map of the parking areas along Spinnaker Way:
http://www.ocscsailing.com/contact/graph/parking.gif
Walk west along Spinnaker Way towards the bay, until the end of the road, which is a loop. Take the northward path, with the bay on your left. We'll be in the clearing on the other side of the large bushes.
Picnic Facilities
I'd love to see people bringing something tasty to share, be it ever so humble or store-bought. Mary will be bringing some delicious brownies with Kalhua frosting - yum! The site has two picnic tables, and a small bbq as well.
Please make my 50.5 birthday an occasion I'll fondly remember for years to come!

# Benetton protest.  For Cruelty to animals / painful and unnecessary animal testing.
After the protest we were all going to  Golden Era for a late lunch!
 Sat July 9 Benetton - at 39 Stockton Street, San Francisco CA
 12:30 – about 1:30PM 


# Just a heads up that the next KFC Cruelty protest in Pacifica is THIS Saturday, 7/9.  Please stand up for the chickens and join us.
 We are supporting PETA in their campaign to ask KFC to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer on the factory farms and in the slaughterhouses of its suppliers, including live scalding, life-long crippling, and painful debeaking. The more than 850 million chickens killed each year for KFC are tortured in ways that would result in felony cruelty-to-animals charges if cats or dogs were the victims, but KFC still refuses to make changes. As the leader in the chicken industry, KFC has a responsibility to ensure that the chickens raised for its buckets are protected from the worst cruelties.  More info:  http://www.kentuckyfriedcruelty.com/index.asp

 WEST MARIN'S NEEDS
 As many may already know, West Marin was recently annexed by the Mosquito Vector Control District and the community is now requiring the District to adopt a non-toxic protocol for mosquito control. 
 The non-toxic protocol will be submitted to the Marin/Sonoma Mosquito & Vector District Board meeting on Wednesday, July 13th at 7:00 p.m. in Cotati (595 Helman Lane). Please attend the meeting to show your support for the protocol and to send a clear message to the Board that the use of toxic pesticides will not be tolerated in our communities.

# 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."

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

URGENT -- UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PROTESTS 
IN LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO, AND DAVIS

Stop Animal Exploitation Now http://saenonline.org
PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL ACTIVISTS AND EMAIL LISTS
Join The Fight Against Animal Experimentation at University of California Laboratories
    University of California Laboratories routinely perform cruel experiments on primates and on many other species.  Rhesus monkeys are confined to restraint chairs with electrodes inserted into their brains and restraining bars literally bolted to their skulls.  Experiments such as this often lead to diseases like encephalitis, meningitis, etc.  These brutal projects also deprive the primates of water for extended periods -- up to 23 hours per day for 5 days per week.
    Primates imprisoned in laboratories often are driven insane by captivity engaging in self-mutilation and stereotypical behavior.  
    Your help is need to bring an end to these heinous projects.  These experiments and more are paid for with your tax dollars.  We estimate that UC labs receive these funding amounts per year for animal experiments:

University of California, San Francisco -- $200 million 
University of California, Los Angeles -- $188 million
University of California, Davis -- $148 million

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

# clear channel/ fire arts festival
  i guess i should have looked closer at who the 
CRUCIBLE was recieving funds from for this event .... 
the one sponsor that stood out is CLEAR CHANNEL. 
a company that is in league w/ the bush administration 
and the fcc to selectivly take away our rights to free speech 
and freedom of expression..... 
i'd also be concerned w/ signing over your rights to the 
performance materials you'll be using, you have no rights 
to publicize your group for this event, & they get the sole 
rights to make money off any video footage they get without 
giving the artists a cut.....the contract we recieved had over a 100 pages missing from it, who in their right mind would sign this? what the fuck?... 
how could this happen? who the fuck let this happen? 
you might as well sell your soul to satan, you fools..... 

hey, i love the crucible and all it has to offer, but come on.... 
do you not know about clear channel??

More About the Dixie Revival 
On June 16th in the middle of the night, someone actually smashed Carol Queen and Robert’s beloved truck, Dixie, when it was parked on the street. Carol and Robert were not in it, so they were not injured, but it was a hit and run accident, so there is no insurance to cover it. Dixie is truly a great truck, and she has done much volunteer work for the Center for Sex and Culture, carting around everything from food to furniture. She is very progressive and a hard worker. 

Dixie (her actual name) is a very historic truck! Reportedly she was once owned by a lesbian attorney couple who helped win Lawrence vs. Texas. The owner before Carol and Robert was a public interest attorney who defended the elderly against fraud. 

The damages total to Dixie over $5,000 and it cost nearly $2,000.00 to get her running again. After that Robert will try to do the remaining work. They need this truck to keep the Center for Sex and Culture running, of course. Founding and running the CSC has been a labor of love for them; neither Carol nor Robert gets any kind of payment from that work. Robert’s on disability and Carol handles the rest of their bills with her freelance work and her half-time job at Good Vibrations.

our dependence on oil. Brazilian funk rockers Bat 
Makumba are headlining and will be joined by Hyim and

will benefit the Clean Fuel Caravan Coalition... a Bay 
Area alternative fuel collective providing education 
about and access to vehicles running on sustainable 
fuels (like biodiesel and vegetable oil). 
     Fusing environmentalism with equatorial beats "A

of all persuasion, and we really hope you can help us 
get the word out. Let's talk soon.

# "Is San Francisco Going to Pot?"
Featuring: Drug Policy Alliance director Ethan Nadelmann and Mayor Gavin Newsom 
Tuesday July 26, 2005, 5:30-7:30 pm 
Jewish Community Center of San Francisco

http://www.drugpolicy.org/events/event.cfm?eventID=543 
FREE lecture on drug policy reform
 San Francisco is once again at the center of a national debate. More than 80% of San Franciscans say medical marijuana should be legally available and a majority even supports regulating, controlling, and taxing marijuana more or less like alcohol. But the federal government says "no" to medical marijuana, just as patients, advocates, bureaucrats, and politicians in San Francisco attempt to create a regulatory system in response to the proliferation of "pot clubs." Will "the city that knows how" do the right thing? Mayor Gavin Newsom and Drug Policy Alliance director Ethan Nadelmann will tackle the controversial question, "Is San Francisco Going to Pot?"

This greenbelt includes agricultural, wilderness, habitat, watershed, and recreational lands and is recognized as essential to the Bay Area's environmental and economic health. All residents share a high quality of life, including access to affordable housing, a good education, cultural amenities, effective public transportation and open space. Finally, there is a widely shared ethic that recognizes the region's interdependence and a system of governance that fosters effective public decision-making to address regional needs.
