We need wire coat hangers and wine corks... to make trees... you'll see!

We need 20 people to send $10. That's the average price for a show... and we'll give you show! Show that you believe in the work. It is so easy! Click this link and put in your digits:

# 					  MEDIA    RELEASE
     Resisting Empire through Cooperative Solutions:
           Talks at the Sebastopol Community Center

Don Paul, one of the most acclaimed authors about the September, 11, 2001 'Attack on America', reads from his sweeping, new, book-length essay, To Prevent the Next " '911' " /  Abandoning the 'New World Order' ... , on Friday evening, August 12, at the Sebastopol Community Center. 

Mark Comings, a physicist once associated with We, the People in Oakland, California and with UC-Berkeley's Lawrence
Laboratory, will speak on solar power, wind power, and more
exotic sources of affordable, renewable energy. 

Don Paul's earlier books include " ' 9/11 ' "/ Facing Our Fascist State from 2002 ('This book is an incredibly courageous, revealing blockbuster'--Yuri Kochiyama) and two that he co-authored with www.wtc7.net-creator Jim Hoffman, 
" '9/11' " / Great Crimes, A Greater Cover-up from 2003 ('The booklet is the most concise, readable and credible piece I have read on the unanswered questions of 9/11'--Richard Heinberg)  and Waking Up from Our Nightmare from 2004 ('Don Paul and Jim Hoffman do the public a great service by graphically exposing some of the lies regarding the 9/11/01 crimes in New York City, and then proposing alternatives to the system that perpetrates such crimes and lies'--Kevin Danaher). He's also the author of four books of poems, a book of essays, and the novel Good Intentions. More information is available at 
http://www.wireonfire.com/donpaul
To Prevent the Next " '9/11' " ... surveys three years of frauds by the U. S. Government to justify or sustain wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It then traces more than 230 years of conspiracies by European financiers to defeat economic independence, democracy and racial justice in the U. S. It argues that the 'War on Terror' is yet another maneuver for a 'New World Order' that can only bring more of global bloodshed and repression. Finally, it calls on the public to resist threats of 'the next terrorist attack' (Dick Cheney) by engaging in cooperative solutions that are already working in this nation and around the world. 
  
What:  'Resisting Empire through Cooperative Solutions'
    Talks by Don Paul and Mark Comings, followed by Public Discussion
Where--Sebastopol Community Center, 290 Morris Street
When--Friday, August 12, 7:00-10:00 p.m.

# Defend Women's Rights! 8/14/05 3:00-5:00pm Free, but donations are welcome.

 Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights invites you to...

Defend Women's Rights! Sunday, August 14th at 3pm Women's Building, SF

Come to this planning meeting to get involved with
BACORR in a variety of activites to build the movement
and defend our rights, such as building a possible
rally and march regarding Roe v. Wade and the Supreme
Court, clinic defense to keep abortion safe and legal,
a women's rights conference in the fall, street
theatre actions and more.

There is an immediate urgency to defend women's
rights.  We need to build a movement with a strong
response to attacks on our rights--to
be at the abortion clinics to keep them open and safe;
to tell Congess that if they will not filibuster
right-wing nominations to the courts, we will on the
streets; to confront the right wherever they rear
their heads; to debate and discuss strategy and tactics
to move our struggle forward.

Some of the issues that make this meeting so important:

**John Roberts' confirmation to the Supreme Court
seems inevitable--many Democrats, including Sen. Diane
Feinstein, have said they will not filibuster, despite
the fact that he has continuously lobbied to overturn
Roe v. Wade.

**Conservatives are forcing Proposition 73, the
Parental Notification Initiative (PNI), that approximates
an invasive parental consent law, to be on the ballot in
either November or the early spring (if the Special
Election in November fails) in California.

**This past month, the Crusade for Life has felt
emboldened enough to travel the state of California
harassing women outside abortion clinics.  "Walk For
Life" plans to have another march in San Francisco
in January of 2006.

**Nearly 90% of counties in the US have no access to
abortion providers.  Access to any contraception at
all is under further attack: the Workplace Religious
Freedom Act, currently under consideration in the
Senate, gives pharmacists the right to refuse to fill
any contraception perscriptions, emergency or
otherwise, if it goes against their faith.

**Women still make $0.75 for every $1.00 a man earns,
and decent, affordable childcare is for too many women
an unattainable dream.

Sponsored by Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive
Rights (BACORR).

#   BEGINNER CLASS 6:30-8pm  INTERMEDIATE CLASS 8-9:30pm 
One consecutive Monday Tuesday and Wednesday in August.
Intermediate students continue on to perform on Thursday evening from 5:30-8pm at the Ferry Building. 

The last chance to take a hoop intensive before Burning Man! Monday's class focuses on torso and arms, Tuesday class focuses on legs and floorwork, Wednesday's class focuses on off body moves. There will be special attention given to micromovements of the body, working with the downbeat, freeing the head, working planes, playing to the audience and infusing your dance with emotion. Guidance for performance given throughout class. Intermediate level class will recieve more challenging exercises and moves and must have taken an intensive previously. The intermediate class will include more discussion of performance, stage presence, costuming and creating a cohesive show. 

Both classes emphasize poise, elegance, grace, power and originality in creating your hoopdance. The first class also works on learning basic "tricks", the intermediate class starts using those moves in a full dance context which uses each move on every angle, while exploring alternating body height and body angles while doing every move. The intermediate class also covers advanced moves and combinations.

Each evening will have a jam circle to close. Fantastic music will propel us to a new level! Beginner level class is $75 for three night series of classes, 4.5 hours total time. Intermediate level class is $85 for 4.5 hours class and a 2.5 hour live performance lab. Enrollment preference given to those who register for entire series as this creates the "intensive hoop bootcamp" experience. Class size limited to 11 students per class. 

Pre-registration required at http://www.HoopGirl.com  Go to "Buy Now" link and register in online store. Space is *very* limited and sells out every month for the beginner class. Don't miss out!

# September 2-5th, 2005 Eco - Defense Rendezvous

Camp with us along the Wenatchee River!

Rainforest Action Network - Greenpeace - Earth First!

Join us in a forest east of the Cascades for labor day weekend! Bring
all your musician friends for some wild sounds around the campfire.
There will also be many workshops and trainings: tree-climbing,
self-defense, edible and herbal plant walks, gorilla theater, radical
cheerleading, map and compass, timber monitoring, non-violence, gender
dynamics and much more. (Note: if you attend these workshops you’ll be
considered trained and ready to work on Greenpeace, RAN, EF! campaigns.)

About the forest: Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest in Washington State
approved a plan to log 2,500 acres of federal lands that were burned by
the Fischer Fire in August of 2004. The plan calls for logging in
old-growth forest reserves, and for building or re-building over 15
miles of road. So lawsuits have been filed and loggers are logging as
fast as possible to ensure the courts have no control over the hauling
of 4,000 log trucks of fire adapted forests. It's called an "Economic
Emergency." Details about the lawsuit

# 9/9 John Trudell, acclaimed Native American poet, recording artist, actor, and activist will appear in San Francisco September 9 at the Women's Building.
 
Trudell reads poetry and speaks as part of a fundraiser for the Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC)--the only group working in the field every day to stop the slaughter and harassment of Yellowstone's wild buffalo.
 September 9.  7 to 9 pm $15 more info (415) 637-1855.
 Woman's Building Auditorium
 3543 18th St., San Francisco
http://www.womensbuilding.org
 The Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) works in the field to stop the slaughter and harassment of some of the last herds of wild  buffalo. Volunteers from around the world defend buffalo on their traditional winter habitat in the Yellowstone area, and advocate for their protection. BFC's daily  patrols stand with the buffalo on the ground they choose to be on, and document every move made against them.
  
  John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and  Native American activist whose international following reflects the universal language of  his words, work and message. Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971.  He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman  of AIM from 1973 to 1979.

In 1982, Trudell began recording his poetry to traditional Native music and in 1983  he released his debut album Tribal Voice on his own Peace Company label.  Trudell then teamed up with the late legendary Kiowa guitarist Jesse Ed  Davis. Together, they recorded three albums during the 1980's. The first of  these, AKA Graffiti Man, was released in 1986 and dubbed the best album of  the year by Bob Dylan.  AKA Graffiti Man served early notice of Trudell's  singular ability to express fundamental truths through a unique mix of  poetry, Native music, blues and rock. His latest CD, Bone Days, was executive produced by  Aademy Award winning actress Angelina Jolie and released on the Daemon  Records label in 2002. In addition to his music career, Trudell has played  roles in a number of feature films, including Thunderheart and Smoke  Signals.  He most recently played Coyote in Hallmark's made for television movie, Dreamkeeper.

Please look at what a friend just now sent that will be happening in DC on 9/11 (from 9/10 - 9/12). This friend will be flying in from the Pacific Northwest to be here for this event. No doubt, many others will be doing the same.... Please mark your calendars, save your dollars for the trip (give up the beers if you must), as well as a few days vacation time. The event in DC on 9/11 has just suddenly now grown to mind-blowing proportions. They talk about hundreds attending? Mark my words - thousands upon thousands - will be there: http://www.thepeacealliance.org/events/sept_conf_05.htm 911 - inside job.

PATRIOT ACT I and II are NULL and VOID Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution of the United States of America is NULL and VOID. Marburry v. Madison -1803

NATIONAL ID CARD LAW / REAL ID LAW, passed by treasonous, secretive congress, is not binding law. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution of the United States of America is NULL and VOID. Marburry v. Madison -1803

-The Geneva convention instructs us to resist genocide by any means necessary. 
-The US constitution directs us to overthrow our government if it fails to represent us.

If a cop does not understand these laws, you can arrest him for impersonating an officer.

Get used to ignoring or arresting officers who do not understand the US Constitution.

Live free or die.

NATIONAL ID CARD LAW / REAL ID LAW is NULL AND VOID. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution of the United States of America is NULL and VOID. Marburry v. Madison -1803 Ignore or arrest any cop who asks to see such. You are allowed to do so by the Geneva Convention and the US Constitution. Passed by treasonous, secretive congress, HR 418 Real ID ACT is NULL AND VOID. Note how senate secretly approved this bill the eve before running away to winter break. Note US history of passing repressive legislation the eve before a break, so that no opposition or public response can take place.
