New Allegations Surface around Katrina Response

Here is a list of grassroots, and people-of-color agencies that are doing relief work with victims of Hurricane Katrina:

Blackwater Mercs Deploy in NOLA

several things could be done to put an obstacle in any future 
Blackwater or DynCorp or Titan or Kaki deployment in Cascadia:

Ask .. no demand the governors of Oregon, Washington and other 
Cascadian states to train the common people in emergency response 
and management.. including weapon safety... I posted the idea of 
the  J.A.C.C.s several weeks ago.

Another would be to push a law forbidding private mercenaries or 
any  organization that is not state approved by Oregonians, 
Washingtonians or others to work or even be in that state.

Pass a law if martial law is declared by the federal government 
then automatically the state is out of the federal system (  )

Sure maybe none of these can work against an imperialist fascist 
system, but maybe together with other ideas we could stop a 
Blackwater or DynCorp driving in our streets after a earthquake or 
riot from a Bush or CHeney protest.

3 Duke students tell of 'disgraceful' scene

Rebuilding New Orleans for Big Oil FEMA, La. outsource Katrina body 
count to firm  implicated in body-dumping scandals:
Kenyon is a subsidiary of Service Corporation
International (SCI), a scandal-ridden Texas-based
company operated by a friend of the Bush family.

Same challenges as 100 years ago  
"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an INvisible government
 owing NO allegiance and acknowledging NO responsibility to the people.
 To destroy this invisible government, to befoul this unholy alliance
 between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the
 statesmanship of today."

# Ross Mirkarimi's Third Friday Art Opening Friday, September 16 5-7:30PM
  City Hall  1 Carlton B Goodlet Place, Room 282   Polk @ Grove
 On Friday, September 16th, 2005, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the monthly Third Friday’s Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room 282. This month’s featured artist is Sara Thustra. 
Sara Thustra is a San Francisco-based artist who specializes in site-specific installations. He is a political artist and activist whose work reflects our personal struggles. His installation for Supervisor Mirkarimi's City Hall Office poses and tackles the question "What would you say to all of our city representatives in three sentences or less?" Sara gathered resident's responses by walking the streets of San Francisco, engaging strangers, and by talking with friends. This stunning display of paintings, words, and installations leaves us with a powerful and creative look at what are arguably two things most effecting our lives: our government and our personal struggles.

# MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In
 2005-09-16 8:00 PM Urban Wasteland Location
What's left to say about this feature?  Don't miss it.  Bring the young'uns who've somehow never seen this film and risk cultural deprivation.  Extra points if you bring two coconut halves.

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents


An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.  Perhaps the most original comedy - or at least the most ridiculously funny historically semi-accurate comedy spoof - of all time.  At the very least, the most quotable movie ever.

PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, and great company.

Friday September 16th, 8:00pm
Railroad Tracks at Fair Ave, Santa Cruz 

BRING lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, friends, wine, & food to share for intermission. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project and the Revolutionary Garden Society who sponsors Guerilla Drive-In.

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands.  Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.

SUBURBAN WASTELAND LOCATION:  S on Hwy 17 to Hwy 1, Hwy 1 north to Mission St, L on Fair Ave after Feral Donuts, walk a short way along the RR tracks to the right.

The contest will start with a youth showcase (last year, about 20 young folks ranging in age from 7 to 17 fiddled and strummed onstage), followed by the string band contest with 20 bands. In addition, California's own national treasure, Kenny Hall, with his fierce, inimitable approach to the fiddle and mandolin and his thousand-song repertoire, will lead an open jam session. It's going to be intense both on stage and off: superb playing, great listening, fantastic dancing. The string band contest is the cornerstone event of the 2005 Berkeley Old Time Music Convention-a rollicking four-day festival featuring Appalachian music and dance. Bands from San Diego, Seattle, Mendocino, Fresno, and other outposts of civilization will strut their stuff at the contest.

As per the official title "Grass-and-Lake Vegan Food Party", this event is at Lake Temescal which has several picnic tables as well as grassy areas that we can use, and a lake, where you can swim for an additional charge.  FYI, the park is open to dogs if they're on a leash.

# Help Save America's Horses   Sep 18 5:30 PM 
 Every year, an estimated 65,000 horses are slaughtered in the United States and processed for human consumption abroad. Our thoroughbreds, show horses, mustangs, carriage horses, and family ponies are shipped in inhumane conditions and butchered, despite the special place these animals hold in American history. Horses helped settle this country. For 400 years, they were a primary means of transport, and to this day they are still beloved companions to millions. They deserve better than to be killed to satisfy overseas appetites. 
So don't miss your chance to have a great time at this HSUS Party Animals event while making a difference for America's horses.

Date: September 18th at 5:30 PM 
Location: Fellini, 1401 University Ave, Berkeley

 Every dollar will help the HSUS keep this momentum going -- and bring us closer to victory for the horses.

stories of the millions of child laborers around the world, in their  
own words. "Stolen Childhoods" is narrated by Meryl Streep, and  
includes interviews with Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai, US  
Senator Tom Harkin, and Founder of the International Labor Rights  
Fund Pharis Harvey. Directed by Len Morris, "Stolen Childhoods" won  
"Best Feature for Children's Advocacy" at the 2005 Artivist Film  
Festival in Los Angeles. It not only has extraordinary footage of the  
growing problem of child labor, but it also depicts solutions:  
offering governments, NGO's, individuals and communities an  
opportunity to do something about this critical global labor rights

 Stop the War in Iraq 
 End Colonial Occupation

# next TreeSpirit photo shoot, Sun. Sept 25, 4pm, Golden Gate Park  
Dear friends of The TreeSpirit Project,

Photographer Jack Gescheidt here, back from, and moved by an amazing outpouring of affection from hundreds and hundreds of gentle people at the recent The Sausalito Art Festival.  And so I invite and welcome you to participate in the next TreeSpirit photo shoot on Sunday, Sept. 25th, @ 4pm in SF's own Golden Gate Park.   We'll quietly commune with a beautiful little oak grove, tucked out of sight from the park's roadways, in a heartfelt community gathering in nature (see jpeg attached).  

I am captivated by the endless curves of these native trees, and enticed by the carpet of ivy beneath them.  Come climb a tree or lay naked in the ivy, beneath the oaks' canopy, whichever calls most to you in the moment. 
As with all TreeSpirit photo gatherings, EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE (but please, no spectators).  Bring a friend if you feel more comfortable doing so, all body types and ages are welcome.  The only requirement is your desire to commune in trees and nature free of all clothing.

Each participant receives a print from the shoot in exchange for signing a Photo Release so the final image can appear in the TreeSpirit Project series and website.  See the collection of gentle images created so far and share them with curious friends: 

One of the many purposes of TreeSpirit is simply to enjoy being outdoors and with these wondrous creature we call trees, along with fellow tree lovers.

We'll meet on Sunday, Sept. 25th, @ 4pm on MLK (Martin Luther King) Drive, 100 yards inside the park from the busy 5th & Lincoln intersection on its south border (see map attached).  From here, it's a short walk to the oak grove.  We'll make a photo RAIN OR SHINE; whether it's sunny and warm or foggy and chilly.  Bring a blanket to stay warm as the SF weather is unpredictable.  Please allow 2 full hours, 4-6pm, for the photo session although it will likely end sooner.

Please email me if you would like to attend and share this new experience, or have any questions.

with great appreciation and love for the trees,

# Receive 4 complimentary CDs at the Sept 25 songwriter showcase
Hey there -- I'd love for you to join me at the Green Beat
Songwriter Showcase this Sunday, 9/25, where I'll be
sharing the stage with three other acclaimed songwriters...

Besides great live music, you can receive four complimentary CDs
-- one from *each* of the songwriters... that's a $60 value! All
you have to do is bring a party of four.

At this intimate "songwriters in the round", we're breaking from
our glamorous full band appearances, and unveiling our hearts and
souls "unplugged". This month's showcase features an incredibly
diverse lineup:

Lane Murchison - rootsy down home grooves
Trevor Justice - soulful story songs
Angelica Star - mesmerizing ballads
Maceo Campbell - fresh and original R&B

For complete bios, visit .

When: 7:00 - 9:30pm
Where: The Hotel Utah, 500 Fourth St at Bryant, SF, (415) 546-6300.

you buy advance tix at

There's a full bar and dinner menu (including veggie dishes), so
come early for table seating and a hearty dinner.

P.S. My CDs have just hit the streets -- woohoo! At a songwriter
conference this past weekend, some industry people told me the
production is fantastic, and some of my songs have the potential
to be licensed for film and TV!

Early next week, the CD should be available at

P.P.S. I'd really love to share my new songs with you! So if the
songwriter showcase format (or this particular venue) doesn't
excite you, please tell me how or where you *would* like to see me
perform. i.e. would you prefer a coffeehouse? Would you be more
likely to come if I had a backup band? Any other suggestions?

P.P.P.S. Still planning the venue and date for my CD release party.
Will keep you posted!

KFC has refused to make these changes.

# The San Francisco Tesla Society Presents a free lecture

"September Surprise, October Surprise:
Everything You Think You Know About 9/11 Is Wrong --

featuring  Barbara Honegger

Sunday, October 9, 2001    1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
at Round Table Pizza
Banquet Room on 2nd Floor
5160 Geary Blvd. (at 16th Ave.)
San Francisco, California

Barbara Honegger is a senior military affairs journalist and
founding member of the International 9/11 Truth Alliance.
Her talk will compliment Jim Hoffman's September
presentation and feature a scientific investigation / data
analysis of the 9/11 Pentagon attacks.  Honegger was the
first to expose the meaning and central importance of the
multiple-hijack-scenario anti-terror emergency response
exercises and wargames being conducted by the Bush
Administration on Sept. 11th.  Her 9/11 contributions are
prominently credited and featured in "Crossing the Rubicon"
by Michael Ruppert and "Inside Job" by Jim Marrs.

Ms. Honegger served as a White House Policy Analyst in the
1980's and was the first public resignation of conscience
from the Reagan-Bush Administration.  She is the author of
"October Surprise", the first book to document the secret
deal between the 1980 Reagan-Bush Campaign and the radical
Islamist Khomeini regime to delay the release of the U.S.
hostages in Iran until after the 1981 presidential
inauguration of Ronald Reagan. Exposure of the "October
Surprise" ignited a major Congressional investigation.

Ms. Honegger earned the first accredited U.S. graduate
degree in Consciousness Studies/Experimental Parapsychology,
from John F. Kennedy University  (1981).  She holds a B.A.
in Communications/Honors Writing from Stanford University
(1969), with expertise in the neuropsychology of human
and nonhuman primate communication.
Citizenship or Deportation

Several SF Tesla Society officers joined other supporters of
Houmanesh at a Federal Immigration Court Hearing in San
Francisco in August.
The Judge postponed his final decision so that additional
evidence regarding
Mo's case can be prepared and presented next year at another
hearing in
January 2006.  We hope that at that time, justice will be
served and Mohsen
Hourmanesh will finally be granted his well earned U.S.

# GI Rights Hotline Training October 15
 A crucial element to slowing the military machine is helping individual GIs get out of the military!  As CCCO has done since 1948, we are supporting individuals in their resistance and opposition to war.  In particular, we are standing with a group of people —GI’s whose questioning and resistance are increasing and becoming better known

 The GI Rights hotline is staffed by a network of organizations throughout the United States and in Germany.  In 2004 we received 32,000 calls from people who needed help obtaining discharge from the military.  Increasingly, people are also using email to contact us and we sent about 3,000 emails in response to email queries.  

The hotline provides accurate, comprehensive, and objective information on draft registration, military discharges, civil rights in the military, and involuntary activation and deployment of military personnel.  The work we do and the information we disseminate are known to enlisted people in numbers far greater then the thousands with whom we communicate personally.

We are seeking additional military counselors to volunteer on the Hotline.  Tasks include answering live phone calls, returning phone messages, responding to email inquiries, and making referrals to relevant organizations and individuals.  Volunteers make an initial one- year commitment of at least 2 hours of service per week.

 CCCO will be holding a GI Rights volunteer training on 
 Saturday, October 15, 2005  9am – 5pm
 405 14th St., Suite #205 Oakland, CA
 Pr-registration required by September 26
 For more information or to register for the training, call 
 510-465-1617 or  888-231-2226
 Or email
 The training will provide an overview of all the discharges, AWOL practices and regulations, and  legal and ethical issues in hotline counseling.
