FEMA Deliberately Sabotaging Hurricane Relief Efforts

alternatives to red cross & faith-based hurricane relief

Re: Katrina catastrophe (natural and man-made), if you've already given to the Red Cross, THANK YOU! Every bit helps. If you still plan to give, reports are coming in of problems surrounding Red Cross efforts to aid Katrina survivors:

Red Cross bureaucracy causing frustrations

Red tape hampering efforts to help victims of Katrina

Hurricane Katrina: Why is the Red Cross not in New Orleans?,1096,0_682_4524,00.html

If you are still able to make contributions for relief in that region, please consider giving directly to more grassroots organizations that reach people directly, with no religious strings attached:

NAACP Disaster Fund

ACORN Recovery Fund (I've heard good things about them)

Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation

These 3 orgs are also listed on the MoveOn site for this relief:

Helping animals in Katrina disaster
It's all over the news about the disaster that Katrina has left in her wake.  I'm sure many of you are also thinking about the animals and how they are doing, and who is helping them.  From Erik Marcus' podcast (see email below), I learned about a California Group "Noah's Wish" that is dedicated soley to responding to help animals in disaster situations, like this one. 
Noah's Wish
Their website also contains a reference for being prepared for a disaster, which you can find at:
There is also information on the Humane Society of the United States webpage, and they also offer information on disaster preparedness.

# 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
 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.

On September 8th, we'll hit the streets in San Francisco and San Mateo to talk to Bay Area voters about the propositions on the ballot and encourage them to vote NO on Propositions 73-78!

After a brief training, we'll be talking to voters to raise awareness around the upcoming election.  To defeat the harmful initiatives on the ballot, including Prop 73, it is critical that Bay Area voters turn out to vote NO in November, and we need your help to do that.

All volunteers will recieve a FREE Planned Parenthood Golden Gate t-shirt.
September 10th, Join PPGG for the 

Bay Area Special Election Campaign Kick-off! 

The Campaign for Teen Safety against Prop. 73 is joining the Alliance for a Better California to launch the Bay Area Special Election Campaign.  Turnout for the Special Election is projected to be very low, and it is critical that Bay Area voters know how important it is for them to VOTE November 8th. 
Precinct walk to raise awareness about the Special Election and DEFEAT Prop. 73

 The Alliance for a Better California, the statewide coalition of nurses, teachers, firefighters, and other unions, is organizing precinct walks on Sept. 10th in San Francisco and San Mateo counties to increase awareness about the special election and their opposition to propositions 74-78.  The Campaign for Teen Safety - the statewide campaign against Prop 73 - will join the Alliance walks on Sept. 10th to urge voters to vote NO on Prop 73 and keep California teens safe.    

If we are going to defeat Prop. 73, we need your help to let voters know how important their vote is!! 
 ** All Campaign for Teen Safety volunteers will receive a FREE PPGG t-shirt! ** 


Proposition 73 is a ballot measure that would amend the state Constitution to require health care providers to notify the parents of teenagers under 18 before terminating a pregnancy.  Parental involvement laws endanger teens, which is why the California Nurses Association, the California Medical Association, Planned Parenthood, and concerned parents all oppose Prop. 73. For more information about this deceptive initiative, please click here.

# Saturday, September 17, 2005
String Band Contest / Crafts Fair at the Berkeley Farmers' Market — Twenty high-spirited old-time string bands will compete for agricultural prizes (Berkeley Farmers' Market gift certificates) in the Berkeley Farmers' Market String Band Contest. 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. The crafts fair will feature beautiful and useful handmade gifts by local artists and crafts people. The Berkeley Old Time Music Convention is co-sponsored by the Ecology Center, Freight & Salvage, Ashkenaz, and KPFA. Location: Saturday Berkeley Farmers' Market, Center St. at MLK Jr. Way, Berkeley. Time: 11am - 3pm. Cost: Free. Info: 510-548-3333, ,

# 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.
