 UCSF To Pay Fine For Animal Rights Violations
 SAN FRANISCO -- University of California San Francisco will pay one of the largest fines for animal rights violations in history.
 The U.S. Department of Agriculture had charged UCSF for 75 counts of animal welfare violations.
 Now, the university will pay $92,000 for creating an atmosphere where employees are afraid to report complaints and several other charges.
 UCSF settled the case Friday just days before formal hearings were scheduled to begin.

class clowns have been up to, and what it's like to study at the  
Clown Conservatory.

# Radical Love workshop w/ Wendy-O Matik
 Thu Sep 29 7PM Change Makers  6536 Telegraph @ 66th 
Oakland Ca 94609 5106552405 
(for singles, couples or more...) 
What better time to talk about radical love, or the right to love who we want, how we want, and as many as we want? Loving openly and freely in these times, whether you are straight or queer, is a brave political act. We have been conditioned by outdated social norms that limit our perceptions and shackle us to unhealthy cycles of dissatisfying relationships. Yet we also live in a time when we can choose our gender and redefine our sexual identities. Don?t we then have the right to decide what kind of relationship best suits our lifestyle? Declare yourself a revolutionary of the heart. Find out how you can expand your potential to love, transform your lifestyle, and together we can threaten the social forces of patriarchy! 

Make no mistake, Redefining Our Relationships is not about the pros and cons of monogamy versus non-monogamy. This is a daring and provocative how-to guide book on radically defined relationships and alternative lifestyles. Available at Change Makers $12.00 

 * "Wendy-O Matik delivers a meditation and a manifesto on the alternatives to monogamy. She shows people who feel hemmed in by exclusive partnering the route to healthy and responsible openness," writes Professor Mike Hout, Department of Sociology, UC Berkeley. 
 * "Wendy-O tackles a touchy topic with clarity and creativity. She is wise beyond her years. This guide teaches you how you can have it all. I gave the jealousy tips to my lover immediately," states Annie Sprinkle, Post-porn Star turned Certified Sexologist. 
 * "Wendy-O Matik's how-to guide for the emotional roadblocks and liberatory possibilities of polyamory reads like a punk rock Ann Landers channeling Emma Goldman and Victoria Woodhull." Hakim Bey, author of The Temporary Autonomous Zone, Ontological Anarchism, Poetic Terrorism (Autonomedia Press). 

Wendy-O Matik is a Bay area based freelance writer, published poet, and radical performance artist. She is committed to reaching out to new readers at non-traditional venues, pushing the boundaries of where literature is normally not seen and heard. Visit her website at

#  Thursday, September 29, 7 PM:  Stanford Law School Student Animal Legal
Defense Fund presents:  "McLibel:  Two Worlds Collide" (1997), a
documentary about the fast-food giant's libel suit against
anti-McDonald's activists.  In Room 280A, Stanford Law School.  Open to
the public.  Admission is free.  More info:  Salena Copeland
(  For
a map, go to and
search for "law school" as the Building Name.  More maps are at

For info on this film, see

McLIBEL is the inside story of how a single father and a part-time bar
worker took on the McDonald's Corporation. Filmed over three years, the
documentary follows Helen Steel and Dave Morris as they are transformed
from anonymous campaigners against the fast food giant into unlikely
global heroes. Struggling to defend themselves in the longest trial in
English history, the pair face infiltration by spies, secret meetings
with corporate executives, 40,000 pages of background reading and a
visit from Ronald McDonald. Using interviews with witnesses and
reconstructions of key moments in court, the film examines the main
issues of the trial - nutrition, animals, advertising, employment, the
environment - and the implications for freedom of speech.

McLIBEL is not about hamburgers. It is about the remorseless power of
multinational corporations.

# Vegan Film:The Witness Fri Sep 30 7:00Pm Free

Free Screening of the documentart film THE WITNESS.

How does a construction contractor from a tough Brooklyn neighborhood  
become an impassioned animal activist?
In the award-winning documentary THE WITNESS, Eddie Lama explains how  
he feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of  
a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals,  
become a vegetarian, and ultimately, to bring his message of  
compassion to the streets of New York.

With humor and sincerity, Eddie tells the story of his remarkable  
change in consciousness, sharing along the way some of the shocking  
realities of the meat and fur industries.

Featuring the song "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan, this is a story of  
beauty and transcendence in the face of tragedy and despair.

Event starts at the Peace Cafe in the Red Vic before the film. Film  
starts at 7:30PM.
The Peace cafe serves vegan foods.

# Everything You Know About Sex Is Wrong! book release party Fri Sept. 30 8 pm
 Donation at door, no one turned away
 The Center for Sex & Culture and Good Vibrations Present a Banned  
Books Week Special Event:

EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT SEX IS WRONG! A bookparty celebrating the  
release of the very latest DisInformation title, edited by Russ Kick.  
Party and reading features contributors Violet Blue, Jack Boulware,  
Greta Christina, Annalee Newitz, Carol Queen, Lori Selke, and David  

When: THIS Friday evening, 9/30/05, at 8 pm
Where: CSC, 398 11th Street at Harrison in SF
$$: By donation at the door, no one turned away for lack of funds. We  
hope the book will be here to purchase too; some of the contributors  
will have their own books to sell as well.

No, it's not a banned book yet, but the list of cutting-edge  
contributors editor Russ Kick has assembled for the notorious  
DisInformation's foray into all things sexual, and we do pretty much  
mean all, means that it might be only a matter of time before some  
small-town preacher takes umbrage! So join us to celebrate forbidden  
knowledge while supporting the Center for Sex & Culture, which  
collects banned sex books (and all the rest of them, too) for its  
library, making them available to scholars and everybody else. (Who  
knows, we might make enough at the door to buy a copy of Lynne  
Cheney's very rare, practically banned lesbian novel!)

2 Great Burning Man films coming to 2 Great Festivals!

We have wonderful news about 2 of our favorite all-time Burning Man documentaries!  Purple Productions' "Dust Devils" will be having its North American festival premiere at the San Francisco World Film Festival (SWIFT) at the end of this month (*bonus! it's programmed along with an outstanding short on Reverend Billy called "Preacher with an Unknown God"). PLUS! Gone Off Deep's "Burning Man: Beyond Black Rock" will be having its official bigtime festival World Premiere at the prestigious AFI Fest in Hollywood in early November.

This is extremely good news for all Burners worldwide, as each of these films does a wonderful job of dispelling a lot of the negative myths about Burning Man and educating the public about our special little corner of the universal culture.  As many of you know, Burning Man's ongoing existence and especially our community's connection through the regionals network greatly depend on a better understanding (and therefore less fear) of what we are about from the general public...films like these can bring the true story to people who have never been to Burning Man and will likely never go, and have already mentally filed it away as "like a Woodstock" or "a big rave in the desert" or "some Pagan hippie thing."

SF World Film Festival:
"Dust Devils" and "Preacher with an Unknown God" SWIFT screenings:

Friday  Sept 30th  10:45PM
Cine Arts Empire Theater
85 West Portal Ave, San Francisco
(screens with Rob Van Alkemade's short, "Preacher With An Unknown God")

**Friday Night Post-Screening celebration event

Sat. October 1st  12noon
Cine Arts Empire Theater   85 West Portal Ave
(screens with Richard Roll's "DownDog" and a 5min. Yoga class)

Tickets and passes to the festival (which is chock full of great films, btw, including a Jeff Buckley documentary I'm preparing for with a full box of kleenex in my pocket) can be be purchased through TicketWeb ( or
866.468.7619)  The festival tells us that the weekend night screenings usually sell out, so get 'em early.


"Beyond Black Rock" screenings at AFI Fest in Los Angeles are TBA, but will be in first week of November... more on those later in the JRS.

We're hoping to send a strong message to these festival programmers that they have (finally!) done a good thing by bringing in Burning Man films... so let's fill up these screenings and make sure every press monkey and distributor there sees and hears an overwhelming enthusiastic response!

For those of you unable to catch these films at the festivals, both are available (exclusively) from the marketplace on our fine website, and both come highly recommended.
# You may or may not have heard of this amazing film before, but you will walk away convinced that this is the coolest movie you've seen is a long long time.

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents   DARK DAYS

Near New York City's Penn Station, squatters have been living for years next to the Amtrak tracks underground. Dark Days is an unromanticized and fascinating glimpse of the lives of a community of homeless people surviving in a train tunnel in Manhattan.  A movie that takes you down below the streets into the heart of NYC's subterranean shantytowns.  The squatters themselves served as the cast and crew of this independent movie with a non-existent budget.  It won three major awards at Sundance.  Rico is hosting.

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

Friday September 30th, 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.

This is extremely good news for all Burners worldwide, as each of these films does a wonderful job of dispelling a lot of the negative myths about Burning Man and educating the public about our special little corner of the universal culture.  As many of you know, Burning Man's ongoing existence and especially our community's connection through the regionals network greatly depend on a better understanding (and therefore less fear) of what we are about from the general public...films like these can bring the true story to people who have never been to Burning Man and will likely never go, and have already mentally filed it away as "like a Woodstock" or "a big rave in the desert" or "some Pagan hippie thing."

SF World Film Festival:
"Dust Devils" and "Preacher with an Unknown God" SWIFT screenings:

Sat. October 1st  12noon
Cine Arts Empire Theater   85 West Portal Ave
(screens with Richard Roll's "DownDog" and a 5min. Yoga class)

Tickets and passes to the festival (which is chock full of great films, btw, including a Jeff Buckley documentary I'm preparing for with a full box of kleenex in my pocket) can be be purchased through TicketWeb ( or
866.468.7619)  The festival tells us that the weekend night screenings usually sell out, so get 'em early.


"Beyond Black Rock" screenings at AFI Fest in Los Angeles are TBA, but will be in first week of November... more on those later in the JRS.

We're hoping to send a strong message to these festival programmers that they have (finally!) done a good thing by bringing in Burning Man films... so let's fill up these screenings and make sure every press monkey and distributor there sees and hears an overwhelming enthusiastic response!

For those of you unable to catch these films at the festivals, both are available (exclusively) from the marketplace on our fine website, and both come highly recommended.

# aturday, October 1, 6 p.m. Howard Lyman, The Mad Cowboy  to Speak in Marin
 Howard Lyman, the fourth generation cattle rancher who won't eat meat, author of MAD COWBOY and the new book NO MORE BULL will be speaking at a free meeting of Marin Vegetarian Education Group at 6 PM at the Town Center Shopping Center's Community Room in Corte Madera.
 This is a free event and a wonderful chance to invite your friends, co-workers, and neighbors to hear an entertaining speaker and watch a short, powerful film.
 The Community Room is located on the south end of the property in the office building at 770 Tamalpais Drive, Suite 201. The door is next to the entrance to The Good Guys that faces the center, not the one that faces the parking lot. There is an elevator to the second floor. Come hear about Mad Cow Disease and what the government does not want you to know about common practices in the meat industry.
 Howard Lyman's new book, No More Bull! includes more than 100 delicious vegan recipes from terrific home chefs and professional chefs. The subtitle of the book is The Mad Cowboy Targets America's Worst Enemy: Our Diet. The book is entertaining, informative, and full of great recipes, so look for a copy at bookstores this month.

# Sat., Oct. 1, 7:00 pm  Andres Edwards and Sim Van der Ryn
 Book Passage Bookstore   51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera, CA 94925   Info: (415) 927-0960 
 Join Andres Edwards and Sim Van der Ryn as they discuss their new books, The Sustainability Revolution: Portrait of a Paradigm Shift and Design for Life: The Architecture of Sim Van der Ryn. As an educator, author, media designer and environmental systems consultant, Edwards's work provides a comprehensive primer on the history, evolution and future of the movement toward sustainability. Sharing his years of experience as a teacher and using his building designs as examples, Van der Ryn shows us that buildings are not objects but organisms, and cities are not machines but complex ecosystems. Design for Life illustrates how Van der Ryn came to see the shifting patterns in nature and how these patterns profoundly affect how people live and work in the structures we build.

# GE Free Dance Party and Rally  2005-10-08 5:30 PM

A dance party and campaign rally to benefit the GE Free Sonoma initiative campaign will rock the Sebastopol Community Center on Saturday, October 8. Organizers promise an evening of music, knowledge and community empowerment.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for an evening of music, laughs and noted speakers. Admission is $15, and only $10 for those who join the list of volunteers assisting with the GE Free campaign. All proceeds go to the campaign.

Performers are donating their energy and their time. The musical lineup includes Sol Horizon, Carnaval Spirit, DJ Dragonfly, and Patric Optimystic Music, with a special appearance by Swami Beyondananda. 

Samplings of gourmet food and coffee will fill the tables of the main hall, along with a beer and wine bar. Knowledge about Genetically Modified food and the GE Free Initiative will also be there in abundance. Speakers will include Larry Robinson, Mayor of Sebastopol; Patricia Dines, activist and author of The Organic Guide book series; and Betty Biodiesel. The startling documentary The Future of Food will show several times during the day.

The GE Free initiative, when passed, will set in place a 10-year moratorium on Genetically modified food crops. At this event, issues of crop contamination, seed integrity, health and the corporate control of food will be discussed. 

This is a dance party with a purpose, and it is sponsored by Harmony Festival, Green Mary, North Bay EcoFest, Daily Acts, and Archer Audio.

Sebastopol Community Center is located at 390 Morris St

 The San Quentin Families Project was started by Suzi Jestadt after her transformative experience helping to facilitate a “positive attitude” support group with life inmates at San Quentin Prison. The desire exhibited by the men in this group to be positive and constructive in their prison lives, is enveloped by enough grace and beauty to be shared with each living person outside prison walls. Suzi went to Liza Klein, pastor of the First United Methodist Church, for support and input on a project to somehow help prisoners, and together they created the San Quentin Families Project.
 The project is working to start relationships with these and other men of the prison community, in assisting them to be connected with their children while incarcerated. It hopes to develop, cultivate, and sustain relationships by helping to coordinate physical visits, funding materials for contact, and encouraging the men to be active parents in their children lives. 
 Food, Drink, Organic ice cream and Live music from Baslao, Shree Dove, and Joanne Lawson will be served.
 Hosted by Suzi Jestadt $15-$25  Tickets available at:
 Bedrock Music 415.258.9745
 First United Methodist Church of San Rafael 415.453.8716
 and will be available at the door on the evening of the event.
 No one turned away for lack of funds.

# 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.

 San Francisco Tesla Society has been providing free
science oriented
lectures to the public for over 12 years. For more

# 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.

Shame Utah for Assault on Dance Community

Dear reader,

Are you a terrorist?

If you're dancing in Utah, the police might treat you like one.

In the latest escalation of the failed war on drugs, 90 law enforcement officers armed with assault weapons, attack dogs and helicopters raided a peaceful and legal dance party on private land outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Law-abiding citizens were intimidated and harassed. Some people were beaten. The constitution was trampled.

Please watch these harrowing video clips taken during the raid.     or

And then take action.

Make your voice heard.

Take Action Now.
