Stop Bush from sludging our dinner salads 

 The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) needs your immediate help to 
stop Congress and the Bush administration from seriously degrading 
organic standards. After 35 years of hard work, the U.S. organic 
community has built up a multi-billion dollar alternative to industrial 
agriculture, based upon strict organic standards and organic community 
control over modification to these standards.

Now, large corporations such as Kraft, Wal-Mart, & Dean Foods--aided 
and abetted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) are moving to 
lower organic standards by allowing a Bush appointee to create a list of 
synthetic ingredients that would be allowed organic production. Even 
worse these proposed regulatory changes will reduce future public 
discussion and input and take away the National Organic Standards 
Board's (NOSB) traditional lead jurisdiction in setting standards. What 
this means, in blunt terms. is that USDA bureaucrats and industry 
lobbyists, not consumers, will now have more control over what can go 
into organic foods and products. (Send a quick letter to your 
Congressperson online here:

British Attack Basra Jail to Free 2 Brits AND 150 prisoners
British soldiers just violated the sovereignty of the new Iraqi government, attacked an official government building, and released 150 prisoners...just because 2 British soldiers were being held for questioning?

More of that winning hearts and minds stuff........ old chap.  This "undercover" crap has been going on the ENTIRE time... and they call them insurgents when the UK and US are the only insurgents.  Heres some more proof.... 
BASRA, Iraq (AP) - British forces using tanks broke down the walls of the central jail in the southern city of Basra late Monday and freed two Britons, allegedly undercover commandos, who had been arrested on charges of shooting two Iraqi policemen.
Witnesses said about 150 Iraqi prisoners also fled the jail.
Violence flared earlier in the day as demonstrators hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at British tanks; at least four people were killed.
The fighting erupted after British armor encircled the jail where the two Britons were being held. During the melee one soldier could be seen scrambling for his life from a burning tank and the rock-throwing mob.

 Photos - Brit soldiers, dressed as ARABS, had missles
Iraqi television on Tuesday showed  footage of the two soldiers, unshaven and looking nervous as Iraqi police looked over wigs, Arab headresses, an anti-tank missile and communications equipment, all apparently used in their mission.

Iraq denounces British rescue in Basra

BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraq denounced British forces on Tuesday over a dramatic rescue of two undercover soldiers that could stoke hostility to the army in increasingly volatile southern Iraq.

British troops used an armored fighting vehicle on Monday to burst into an Iraqi jail in search of soldiers held by police in Basra. The British commander said he learned they had been handed to militia and ordered their rescue from a nearby house.
Iraqi television on Tuesday showed  footage of the two soldiers, unshaven and looking nervous as Iraqi police looked over wigs, Arab headresses, an anti-tank missile and communications equipment, all apparently used in their mission.

The images of the pair seemed sure to fuel suspicions by militias in Basra and elsewhere who believe foreign troops are on a secret mission to exploit Iraq. - what you need

Luis  Fernando Uribe has exhibited extensively throughout the world for more than 25 years. His work is preeminent in expression among today’s contemporary Latin American art, demonstrating a rare instinctual power that emanates from Uribe’s profound and painful experiences of growing up in Colombia. The artist adds his own  style to Magic Realism art, which has long flourished in Latin America, while embodying the core  of Magic Realism’s strongest tenants in their most essential form.  Uribe’s paintings, simultaneously a response to suffering and the  need to escape from suffering, expresses his vision through dreamlike  half-shadows and figures that populate imaginative landscapes.

feat. Soulsalaam & Process Rebel, Scratch n Sniff feat. Motion Potion

WHERE: Space 550 |550 Barneveld Avenue, San Francisco CA/ 415.550.8256
PRESS INFO:  Infectious Publicity | Sara Cohen 504.486.4505 ext 205
TICKETS: $20 at, calling 415-256-TIXX or at  
Distractions on Haight, 1524 Haight St, SF
DETAILS: "Foreplay" will get you excited for Love Parade by bringing  
together an unreal collection of West Coast tribal/breaks/house/world  
talent on 4 soundsystems. Featuring some of the leading DJ's in  
California's world/breaks scene and the unparalleled intensity of the  
Mutaytor, Foreplay promises to be a  legendary meeting of the beats.   
The 25 piece music/dance/performance art behomth known as the  
Mutaytor is a part hip-grinding, techno/retro-funk, part audience- 
interactive, post-modern circus, the first durable chunk of American  
music to emerge from the Burning Man subculture. Combining  
drastically advanced elements of the Blue Man Group,  Parliament- 
Funkadelic, the Crystal Method and Crash Worship, Mutaytor provides  
riotous and surreal entertainment for everyone.  The sound is tight  
with over 100 drums sounding like one sinstrument, the show manic,  
and the vibe all-inclusively friendly.

The brainchild of Brazilian natives Alex Koberle and Emiliano  
Benevides and Americano bassist Carl Remde, Bat Makumba is the  
crossroads between the traditional music of their equatorial homeland  
and the punk, rock and funk influences of the U.S. locals to San  
Francisco.  Bat Makumba's show is a hip renegade carnival party full  
of tropicalia tinged ska, punk-influenced forro, and rock-infused  
samba. DJ Laird has quickly become one of the Bay Area's most sought  
after DJ's being named to the coveted "Nitevibe Dreamteam" svereal  
years running. Janaka [Selekta] is the founder of Dhamaal, SF's  
premier South Asian arts collective, and a star in his own right.  
Scratch n Sniff  is an explosive 4-turntable breakbeat project that  
combines SJ Littlewood's beats with local funk maven Motion Potion's  
sampling and turntable skills. Similarly, Hypnomadic combines the  
skills of world beat legend Soulsalaam with producer Process Rebel.   
David Starfire is the founder of LA's "Starfire Records" and is one  
of the most sought-after underground DJ producers on the West Coast.

We want to help create living, breathing connected living spaces for people, and at the same time, combine our artistic goals, living experience, building skills and specialties to help build real communities and work toward a thriving gift economy. 

We live in a world that has given a lot to us, and we want to give something back. We do this professionally, and it's the best way we know to share what we love to do. it's not about charity; this is our gift to our community, and to ourselves and a way to get involved in interesting projects where people are ready to let go of societal standards. Where we as artisans can let our most fantastical visions loose, pour our soul out, share what we love, and offer it as a gift. It's one more way of infusing happiness and interconnectedness into the social milieu. 

What if, as an artistically inclined carpenter, you were to find someone who offered a project that enlisted all your most treasured skills and tricks, that tickled you to figure out how to expand your knowledge and courage in how you use your tools and noggin and informational/material resources. A project in which you could give the finished product with no expectations of return? It's cathartic. It's all about letting go. Not unlike incinerating carefully created art work. Yet with free carpentry, your art and craftsmanship lives on and influences and reverberates. 

Giving away the best of what you do will transform your relationship with your work. Free carpentry is just a beginning. 


The Free Skool calendar said you should bring tools if you have them. True. People have asked what tools will be useful. I'll try to give you an idea. We won't be needing any finish tools at all. The following tools will be very useful. If you are thinking about doing carpentry on a regular basis, these are also the bare minimum you'll need. So buying these tools will be a good investment. (There are several used tool places in town, including Drew's Used Tools). 

Framing Hammer 
Nail puller or flat bar 
Speed square 
Carpenter pencils 
Chalk line/chalk box 

Wormdrive saw (also called a Skil saw) 
Cordless drill/screwdriver 

Snacks, if you think you might feel peckish 
Food you want to share at lunchtime 


Other advice that will allow you to get the most out of this workshop. 

ARRIVE EARLY - due to time limitations, we will start on-time and will not repeat anything 

ASK QUESTIONS - there will be tons and tons of stuff that you will not get the first time around, ask questions until you understand it 

TAKE NOTES - this workshop will be fast-paced. You should carry a small notebook with you and take voluminous notes on everything. 

COME READY TO WORK - After this weekend, you will be wracked. You will be lifting, cutting, hammering, digging, and pulling. Stretch ahead of time and be sure you are ready to work your ass off. 

ATTEND BOTH DAYS - You will get the most out of the workshop by attending both Saturday's and Sunday's workshop. On the second day, we will build (literally) on what we learned the first day. 

BE HONEST - Be honest about your experience, what you know, what you understand, or what you need help with. If you do, we can get you more information, help with what you are doing, or whatever you need. 

BE ATTENTIVE - Pay careful attention to everything you hear, to any instructions you receive, and mostly, to everything you learn from every mistake you make. 

HAVE FUN - Bring your tolerance, your patience (especially with yourself), your understanding, your most attentive, problem-solving, confident self. And have fun.

# 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,

you have to do is bring a party of four.

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 .

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!

Rafael, CA 94901 (Marin County). *Please note new location*. For more

KFC has refused to make these changes.
Please join our worldwide campaign against KFC by attending this protest.

# 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.
