WHO warns army may be needed to fight bird flu 13 Jan 2006 The World Health Organisation yesterday predicted authorities might need to use the army and police to quarantine about 120,000 people to contain an initial pandemic flu outbreak of just 19 cases.  [If you think the illegal NSA spying was a breach of civil liberties, wait until the bird flu pandemic arrives at the Bush dictatorship's doorstep.]

"This government is not only more criminal and corrupt than we imagine-
it is more criminal and illicit than we can imagine. Bush and company
make the mafia look like boy scouts.. The collection of thugs and criminals
now running the country are the greatest and most dangerous organized
crime syndicate in the world. . . And they possess the greatest arsenal
of weapons, many of them nuclear, that the world has ever seen.
They have an unparalleled propensity for violence.
They are not who you think they are;
and they are not doing what you think they are doing."

Vaccinations lead to mental stupidy; distruction of the immune system, - home schooling leading to college is just stupid.  If you cannot see it then you need to study more.  Higher the education the more we are controlled and the more we lack common sense.  

 Like using your floride toothpaste and eating the stuff this system calls 'food'  ---either you understand or you do not. Our forefather freemasons could speak in many languages and they gave us slavery to a stupid corporate beast -- called the New World Order.  Doesn't take a genius to see the symbols used from the beginning.  Or maybe it does.

 So much for EDucation. Debt is not the only problem.  USURY is the sin.  Banking is slavery.  Using a SS number is continued agreement with the system.  So.

 Yah, I will yell about many things in this slave camp.  I really understand suicide.  Sorry I got you  upset.  -Joeseph

Myspace.com / Murdoch space (bought by fox)

Tom (Myspace's founder) claims he still has complete control over the site and says he will not delete profiles or groups that are not obscene or harassing others.

Myspace has always been owned by an internet market research firm called Intermix Media, which always had ownership interest by Fox / Rupert Murdoch, until Fox bought the rest of it. Myspace is basically a marketing database used to track trends among "the youth demographic". The site itself does not make a profit on banner ads. The real money is the marketing database. Hence, the $500 million price tag.

"Tom" is a bit of a myth. He's a real person, but he's not the sole founder. Tom's account has been used as a role account, with automated messages and replies from customer service coming from his account to give the site a friendlier feel. (As yourself, how can one person respond to the customer service needs of a user base of 40 million people? It's impossible.)

Considering the strong ties between Fox and the Republican party, and the recent crackdown on free speech and activism (by prosecuting it as "terrorism"), I would strongly urge all activists to avoid Myspace at all costs. There are plenty of other free services out there that don't have direct ties with the political party that wants you in jail for exercising your right to political activism. Myspace / Fox will not hesitate to hand over your posts to law enforcement. Even if it hasn't happened "yet", are you willing to take that chance?

Find a different free service, or build your own, or find a friend who knows how.

Call me alarmist, but I personally think any activist who uses Myspace is asking for trouble. Keep your Myspace account for showing off your new hair or photos of your cat. Use something else for planning protests and direct action.

# Control Room at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Friday 13 Jan 8:00 PM Free!
 
We have a new GDI Winter home finally at the new Bike Church location  
on Pacific across from the Saturn Cafe parking lot.  Yay, for the  
Bike Church.  Come and check out their new space at this Friday's movie.

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents      CONTROL ROOM

A glimpse into the controversial and often dangerous operations of  
the 7-year-old Arab-language Al Jazeera news network, offers us a  
fierce yet often surprisingly friendly debate about the clashing ways  
in which the U.S. invasion and takeover of Iraq have been portrayed  
by American and Arab journalists.  At once a clear-eyed document of  
the war, an inquiry into the way events become filtered into news,  
and a complex, surprising portrait of the personalities behind the  
scenes.Unlike most American media outlets, al-Jazeera is the one news  
service the Pentagon hasn't been able to "manage." Hosted by D-Fresh  
& Rico.

PLUS recent news on the media war in the middle east, thrilling and  
funny short films, an intermission, great company, and a rollicking  
bike ride after the movie.

Friday January 13th, 8:00pm
at the Bike Church, 703 Pacific Ave, south of Laurel, Santa Cruz

BRING blankets, pillows, jammies, friends, wine, & food to share for  
intermission. Bring your bike for the Midnight Mystery Ride after the  
movie.  Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the  
project and the Revolutionary Garden Society who sponsors Guerilla  
Drive-In.

MIDNIGHT MYSTERY RIDE: After the movies, the Santa Cruz Midnight  
Mystery Ride will take you and your friends on a rollicking after- 
hours tour of the bike ways and back streets of our fair city. Where  
are we going? It's a mystery!

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the  
stars that springs up  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.

# Protest Against Rep. Nancy Pelosi's Continuous ...

 Protest Against Rep. Nancy Pelosi's Continuous Funding of the War in Iraq 
Saturday, January 14, 2006 9:30am 
Marina Middle School Auditorium 
3500 Fillmore Street (between Bay and Chestnut) 
San Francisco, CA 

Stand with us as we say, "Nancy, Stop Funding War!" 

Nancy Pelosi will hold a Town Hall meeting the morning of Saturday January 14th to discuss National Security, meanwhile we'll be outside protesting her continuous support for a military war chest. 

While she has personally supported Rep. John Murtha's call for withdrawal from the ground war, she explicitly refuses to use her power as house minority leader to move the Democratic Party Caucus towards supporting even Murtha's resolution; she will not support HR 4232, the bill introduced by Representative James McGovern, to prohibit the use of funds to deploy United States Armed Forces to Iraq. 

Nancy Pelosi consistently votes to spend billions of dollars per year on the war in Iraq while vital public services are being cut at home! 

* Nancy's record: 
1) June 2002: Pelosi voted YES on HR 5010 - Vote to adopt a conference report on a bill that would provide $355.1 billion in appropriations for the Defense Department for fiscal year 2003, an increase of $37.5 billion from 2002.

# The next potluck will be Saturday evening, January 14th, 6 to 9 pm.

Please join us in kicking off the new year, and bring a friend with you who may be struggling on the raw food path. Everyone will walk away with something that can be immediately put to practical use in improving their vitality.

Our speaker will be: Hugh Cruickshank
 Topic: Making the Raw Food Diet Work For YOU!

There is more than just "eating raw foods" to achieve optimum health. There are many subtle nuances and easy tips to greatly improve your results on the raw food diet. Most of these are simple and easily integrated into your lifestyle and diet.

Hugh Cruickshank has been a health inthusiast for more than 30 years. He has worked as a wellness consultant, health coach, and health educator teaching classes on natural health and lifestyle. He has presented leading edge health information to physicians and medical staff at offices and hospitals throughout the Northwest and here in Marin County.

Hugh's knowledge on health is drawn from years of courses, lectures, seminars, tapes, books, and his continuous search for greater health for mankind. Perhaps most important is his own personal experience on the path to achieving optimal health.
 
Cost: A $4 donation (this covers the monthly rent on the meeting space) and bring a raw food dish to serve 10, for each person attending.

The meeting starts at 6:00 pm. PLEASE try to be on time. We eat at 6:15 and our speakers generally start at 7:00. Please bring a raw food dish of your choice to serve 10 people making sure to review the guidelines for food below, or on our web site.

Guidelines for Food:
Please prepare your dishes with raw, organic (at least pesticide/herbicide free), vegetarian (vegan - no animal products) ingredients. Nothing cooked, steamed, baked or otherwise heated above 105 degrees is appropriate for this potluck. Dehydrated foods and dried fruits are fine as long as they have been prepared within the temperature guideline above.  Tofu and most seaweeds are not raw foods. Please pay attention to what might go into your dish; be careful about refined oils, vinegar, spices, salt, garlic and onions please...is it raw and truly healthy, etc. Could some things be added later at the potluck by those who want it? Some attendees have been on the raw path for 20+ years so we must adhere to these seemingly strict guidelines. There are some wonderful raw foods preparation books available at the local health food stores for new ideas, or you can go to 
htp://www.living-foods.com  for lots of great recipes.  Beautiful leafy greens and veggies presented in a wide variety of (raw) ways are always a winner.  Be creative, enjoy yourself and have fun!  If in doubt - leave it out! Call or email if you need ideas or have questions.

Plates and Silverware:
Please bring your own plate and silverware. Not only is this ecologically beneficial, it's a much more pleasing dining experience.

Directions:
Aldersgate Church is in San Rafael (Terra Linda area), Marin County, California.
It can be reached by US Highway 101 north of San Francisco, exiting at Freitas Parkway just north of the Marin County Civic center, a noted Frank Lloyd Wright designed structure.  Following Freitas Parkway west, turn left on Las Gallinas, then right on Nova Albion Way.  Turn right again on Montecillo, passing Kaiser Hospital.  Turn left on Trellis and left again at the crest of the hill, which is Wellbrock Heights.  Follow the street into the parking area.  A map available at  or on our web site.

Questions:
If you have questions about food choices, directions, or anything else, you may email Hugh Cruickshank at 
vibrantlife4u Earthlink net
Please let us know by email if you change your email address.

You can now send your friends to <http://www.marinrawfood.com/> for other potluck details.

# You are invited to come!  (Posted at-
http://www.communitycurrency.org/CampaignLaunch.html )

Speaking Out-       For Truth, Peace, and Justice

Sunday, Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday,
January 15, 2006         11 am to 1 pm

Lytton Plaza, (University x Emerson, Downtown Palo Alto,
just a few blocks from the University Ave. Train Station)

Americans and people throughout the world honor the life, words, actions
and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.      The day is also the anniversary
of a March upon Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's office in 2002 Demanding a
Congressional Investigation of 9/11.      In 2003, a subsequent March took
place- Demanding an End to the 9/11 Cover-Up,    Repeal of the Patriot
Act,    and the
Pre-Emptive Impeachment of Bush.  Lytton Plaza is also the site of the
weekly Listening For A Change Project, held since October 2001, ( inspired
by a Colombian woman's efforts to defuse violence using the most gentle,
non-violent means possible- "listening.")

Time to speak truths censored by the mainstream press,  truths which birth
the movements for social change, for peace and justice.  A range of
activists will speak, including-  newly elected City Councilman Peter
Drekmeier, Swami Beyondananda, T.U.C.'s Maria Gilardin, Taking Aim's Ralph
Schoenman, Ken Jenkins, John Bass, Ed Rippy, David Kubiak,  Christian
Pecaut, Green Candidates Laura Wells, Tian Harter,  and  Carol
Brouillet  who will publicly launch her Congressional Campaign with a short
statement-

      "Like Martin Luther King, Jr., I have a dream, too.  A dream of a
world, without war, a dream of a world where resources are not squandered
on weapons to protect the rich from the poor , a dream of a world where
there is no need for armies, nor weapons of mass destruction, nor
terrorism, and wealth is measured by the health and well being of our
relationships, our children, our community, our planet.

       "Truth is the first casualty of war.  The official 9-11 story is a
lie.  Lies are used to sell unjustifiable wars.  The PATRIOT Act was
anything, but patriotic, and an attack upon the Constitution, the Bill of
Rights, dissent. Congress was terrorized and pressured into passing it quickly.

        "When we demanded an investigation of 9-11, Bush and Cheney limited
the investigation and had it overseen by the CIA and the men, who should
have been investigated for their role in the attacks, Goss and Graham.  The
systemic destruction of evidence and cover-up culminated in the deeply
flawed official Report directed by Philip Zelikow, part of the Bush
National Security transition team, who co-authored a book with Rice.  The
Commission ignored, omitted and distorted evidence that didn't fit within
the parameters outlined by the official narrative.

       "Congresswoman Eshoo, has supported the official story and
championed the Intelligence Transformation Act, based upon the Commission's
recommendations.

       "It is time to challenge and abolish the National Security State,
Homeland Security, F.EM.A. which seem designed to protect the few from the
many.  False Security depends upon having the most sophisticated weapons,
surveillance devices, and control over communications systems. .  The
obscene military transformation of the country threatens the health, well
being, and civil liberties of its citizen and the world. Real Security
means water, food, shelter, health, and healthy relationships between
people, people and planet.

      "The "War on Terrorism" is a bogus war, a war of terrorism against
all people, a war on truth, a war on freedom, launched by a terrorist
attack which has all the fingerprints of a special operation, a Reichstag
Fire. 9-11 was one of the false pretexts, lies, used to sell the war on
Iraq.

       "We need a national dialogue on Impeachment, the responsibility of
the American people and Congress to rein in a criminal regime that is
capable terrorizing its own people, as well as pursuing illegal, immoral,
wars of aggression against other countries, and stealing elections.

      "I hope that others share my dream for transforming this country from
a violent, dominating bully, to a respectful, helpful friend.

       "I hope that those who share my belief that "Impeachment," Repeal of
the PATRIOT Act, Redirecting Resources from Killing to Healing, are our
best hope for the country and will support my campaign.  I cannot do this
alone; there must be a powerful social movement.  Apathy, Disengagement,
Fear and Cynicism are the forces which perpetuate the war economy,
corporate globalization. Engagement, Empowerment, Hope, Courage, Truth,
Growing Real Communities within our society can transform it to serve and
nurture life.

      "Another  world is possible.  We can do together what none of us can
do alone.  I have no experience within government nor corporations, but I
do have experience in mothering, organizing, building community, learning
how to work cooperatively, finding the deeper truths and purposes which
bind us with all of humanity.  As citizens,  our greatest duty, to
ourselves, to our families, to the world, is to rein in our own government,
and hold it accountable for its actions, this is why I am running for
office, to champion Truth, Peace, Justice, and Ecological Wisdom.

     I hope you will join us on January 15th for the Speak-Out, Rally for
Truth, Peace and Justice.  I hope it doesn't rain.  After over four years
of the weekly Wednesday' "Listening for a Change," Project.  I believe I
will change the title to "Listening and Speaking for a Change" and reserve
the first hour for Listening and the second hour for Speaking and
organizing. If you cannot join us on the 15th, please join us on a
sunny/cloudy/non-rainy Wednesday from 11 am to 1 pm at Lytton Plaza.

	? 	 Discover the dramatic depth of being you can attain with the assistance  an 
 Evolutionary  Guide

All in one brief evening!

 Do you think or feel that a spiritual life and a monetarily prosperous  life are in conflict? Are you considering taking that leap of faith by  going into business for your Self? Have you already done so and are looking  to increase your income, your opportunities, or get more "business savvy"? Do you want to increase your effectiveness and turn more  prospects into clients? Do you want a greater command of the nuts and  bolts of your business? Are you an employee or executive, satisfied with  your job, your career, your income, but are lacking that sense of fulfillment  that can only come from living your spiritual purpose?

 Would you simply like to be happier, more fulfilled, or feel more purpose in what you do?

 If you answered yes to any of those questions, then this mini workshop is for you.

Imagine living your purpose, driven by the unique essence  of your spirit, enraptured in your day to day tasks because you are  thriving while living with the freedom you have dreamed of all your  life. Imagine  being someone who says "I love my life. I live my purpose. I do what  I want to do and I am making money for it."

 Think this is impossible? Think again. However...

 In order to do this, you must first resolve your limiting beliefs  about your Self, about money, and about the society in which  we live. Beliefs that are largely unconscious and do not serve you and your  thrival.

 Take your business and your Self to the next level. Start by registering  NOW:

# Harmony Events Presents:
POWER MANIFESTATION
with Zen DeBrücke
at Harmony Community Room
in Sebastopol
 
INTRO EVENING January 18, 2006
6:30-9:00 PM  Free/Donation
Please bring a generous donation for Harmony Festival for providing this space for free for the evening!
 
LEVEL ONE- 1 DAY COURSE January 28, 2006  9:30-6:00 PM
 
What You will Learn!
o     Energy flows where your thoughts go.
o     You create the world around you now.
o     Are you happy with what you are creating?
o     Create a new and powerful reality.
 
This is a proven, step-by-step method of Manifesting.
 
Access your life-path/soul-path Purpose and Passion with certainty.
 
Power Manifestation is a revolutionary course designed to help you understand your own extraordinary manifestation power, and to teach you how to use it every day. This one day course is packed full of new ways to look at how we get what we get in our lives. The tools and practices you'll learn are guaranteed to bring new surplus and joy into your life. If you've seen the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" then you already know from experts interviewed in the film what the power of manifestation can do for all of us.
 
In recent decades, Quantum Physicists have uncovered a startling scientific discovery: our thoughts shape the reality around us. Why then does it seem impossible to shape our lives the way we want? Manifestation expert Zen DeBrücke has a simple answer: Most of us are unaware of the unique combination of practices it takes to manifest absolutely anything we want in our lives.
 
Sound too good to be true? Our Power Manifestation graduates disagree. They have closed million dollar sales deals overnight that were dragging on for months or years, settled lawsuits and difficult divorces with once-unthinkable positive outcomes, created and funded new businesses and manifested better physical health.
 
You Will Learn:
o     The powerful part you play as your own ultimate source of prosperity
o     How your underlying emotions and feelings affect your ability to be successful
o     How your childhood, life experience, and social conditioning have constructed 
     desires and beliefs
o     How to recognize the emotional and mental bonds that stop abundant living from
      being part of your life
o     How to magnetize what you really want, and to make it happen quickly
o     How to empower new ideas that will lead you to a more fulfilling and harmonious
      life
 
Power Manifestation Course Topics Cover:
Honing your life's purpose and passion based on your Internal Guidance System, a proven step-by-step method
Beliefs that are holding you back from getting what you want in life
Apply the principals of Flow vs. Force for more ease and abundance
Achieving greater spiritual awareness and connection with the Divine
 
Zen DeBrücke is a public speaker, business leader and inspirational
teacher who has coached hundreds of business leaders and individuals to
success in every arena. As the visionary founder of Pranaology, Zen is
blessed with the opportunity to build on 15 years of research and study
on the subject of manifestation.

# YLEM Forum: "Multimedia Fandango"

RX Gallery and Bar
(No one under 21 allowed)
132 Eddy St., San Francisco, CA 94102
Two blocks from Powell St. BART station.
Suggested donation: sliding scale $5-10.
Open to the public and wheelchair accessible.

Contact: Trudy Myrrh Reagan, forum ylem org
http://ylem.org   650-856-9593

Sponsored by YLEM: Artists Using Science and Technology

Sylvia Pengilly, dancer, composer and video artist, demonstrates how
video and music can be combined to create visual and audio splendor.
She will show two works and do a real time demonstration of the
software used. Multimedia artist Beverly Reiser and video artist Mark
McGothian will show their interactive piece created for Burning Man
called "The Black Hole of Desire."
And, there's more (to be announced)!

PROGRAM

Sylvia Pengilly is a composer of both electronic and acoustic music
who is fascinated by the correlation between what the ear hears and
what the eye sees. She was willingly seduced into the world of video
and computer graphics. Her current works amplify the theme of each
work by introducing it to the audience through the eye as well as
through the ear. 

"Patterns of Organic Energy," her music/video work using these
techniques, will demonstrate how video and music can be combined
within a common framework. She will give a realtime demonstration of
the software used. This piece was included in the recent Computer
Music Journal special edition on music and video.  

"The Outer Edge of Possibility," which represents her first
collaboration with composer Michael Rhoades  will also be presented. 
This work is based visually upon a simple silhouette of the human body
which is subjected to amazing transformations that are only possible
through the miracle of software.

She is professor emeritus of the College of Music at Loyola
University, New Orleans. Mathematics and physics, including Chaos
Theory, Quantum Mechanics, and Superstrings, frequently provide the
basis for her works.

---------

Beverly Reiser has been doing multimedia for twenty years, and had an
early piece shown at Centre Pompidou in Paris. For 14 years she was
president of YLEM, and helped design its first web site in 1984-5.
YLEM's prize-winning site was one of the first fine arts sites on the
web. From the Black Rock Foundation she and video artist Mark
McGothian received a commission this year, enabling them to branch out
in their multimedia work. In "The Black Hole of Desire," she and Mark
created a booth at Burning Man where people recorded their desires. It
had a playback feature where people could hear what had been recorded.
This has been combined with sound they collected to make an intriguing
DVD.

In the past seven summers, he has paddled over 400 days (mostly solo) through many areas of the islands and mainland coast that encompass the Tongass rainforest. From the world-renowned Glacier Bay to the rarely visited shores of Kuiu Island and the outer coast of Chichagof Island, he has wandered and photographed the waters, landscapes, and animals of the Alaska coast. 

 Come enjoy a journey through this extraordinary land and seascape and find inspiration to expand one's kayaking adventures. Also learn about one of America's great rainforests and efforts to preserve this wilderness area.

# Dirty South- An All Stat DJ Line up at the Cell Space Jan 20th
2006-01-20 10:00 PM
Join us at the Cell Space January 20th for an outrageous line up of DJ's donating their talents to raise money and awareness for the antiracist, grassroots movement taking root in New Orleans! Many of us just returned on the Oxygen Collective bus from an intensive three week trip doing relief work in New Orleans. We will share some of our images and stories from our experience, and will donate 100% of the proceeds to the dedicated people at the Common Ground Collective working for justice on the Gulf Coast.

Common Ground Collective formed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, to provide immediate aid and long-term solidarity along the Gulf Coast. Common Ground is a local, community-run organization offering mutual aid and support to New Orleans communities that have been historically neglected and underserved. Common Ground's teams of volunteers include: medical and health providers, aid workers, community organizers, legal representatives and people from all over with broad skills from all walks of life. 

100% of the proceeds will go directly to the needs of residents in New Orleans. The funds will fuel the need for environmental clean up, providing safety equipment for volunteers and residents alike. Money will also go to a school that's starting up in one of the most impoverished areas in New Orleans, an area still void of any school for children. Common Ground oversees these, and other projects, all directly benefiting the residents. Volunteers leave their jobs, their homes, and comfort for weeks on end, anything that we can offer to assist in their safety is a great service. Offering $20 to the cause is a small way to effect positive change in an area in great need.

10PM - 4AM / @ CELLspace SF 2050 Bryant St. / $20+ Donation at the door

hiking, movies, yoga, kirtan ... see harbin.org) from noon on Friday
until 9pm on Sunday.  Indoor camping will be relatively spacious:  for
the 20 of us we'll have two private rooms, three large tents set up,
at least one van, and two large floor areas in the lodge, so everyone
should be able to sleep early/late/when they want and be relatively
undisturbed, and we won't be cramped in like sardines although a
cuddle pile may form :-)

week of the event.

# John Perkins Discusses “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” With Kevin Danaher & Anuradha Mittal
Wed, Jan 25, 2006   7:30 pm
 
M. L. King Jr. Middle School Auditorium 1781 Rose St Berkeley

 John Perkins Discusses “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” With Kevin Danaher & Anuradha Mittal 

 JOHN PERKINS, a current New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle bestselling author who was covertly recruited by the U.S. National Security Agency to be an economic hit man, writes that they are “highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder.” Perkins did this work for a decade, until 9/11/2001 convinced him to fully expose the corporate and government activities often thought of as “globalization.” 

 ANURADHA MITTAL, formerly co-director of Food First, is the founder & director of The Oakland Institute as well as the author of: “America Needs Human Rights: Fighting Hunger and Poverty in the Richest Nation on Earth” and, with Kevin Danaher, “10 Reasons to Abolish the World Bank and the IMF.” 

 KEVIN DANAHER, co-founder of Global Exchange and their Director of Public Education, has produced as author or editor eleven books, including “Democratizing the Global Economy: The Battle Against the World Bank and the IMF” and “Insurrection: Citizen Challenges to Corporate Power (with Jason Mark).

The Hamilton Family Center 
The mission of Hamilton Family Center is to end homelessness for families that we serve by providing a safe, stable, temporary home environment that promotes the dignity of each family. We offer a comprehensive array of support services, including case management, child care, counseling, housing referral, advocacy and financial assistance. 
http://www.hamiltonfamilycenter.org 
 
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that
most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of
God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure
around you. You were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within
you. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own
light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our  own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others. ---marianne williamson

PAINFUL DECEPTION     Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This film is a video version of Eric Hufschmid's book, Painful  
Questions.  It provides an in-depth analysis of the Twin Towers'  
sctructure based on a scientific approach as well as careful  
observation and simple common sense.  Eric was the first person to  
bring the mysterious collapse of Building 7 to the attention of the  
public.  Building 7 was a 47-story building near the Twin Towers that  
disintegrated into dust in 7 seconds a few hours after the Towers  
fell.  Eric points out that the same demolition crew was hired to  
clean up the rubble of the World Trade Center and the rubble of the  
Oklahoma City bombing -- another cover up and inside job.  Eric takes  
a very close look at the Pentagon crash and points out a number of  
obvious facts that make the official story fall apart.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our  
Humanist Coffee House

Overview
This 14th edition of the Digital Be-In combines its lineage of invention and cultural evolution marking the dawn of the digital age with the emerging green economy and sustainable culture movement. Producer Michael Gosney (whose Verbum magazine began the Digital Be-In during the late 1980s) developed the Paradox conferences on sustainable communities at Arcosanti, Arizona in 1997, 1999 and 2001  http://www.greencenturyinstitute.org/paradox.htm  and formed the Green Century Institute in San Francisco in 2002. Planetwork, founded in San Francisco by Jim Fournier and Elizabeth Thompson in 1998, fosters the creative application of digital tools for positive global change through a series of conferences and monthly forums in major cities. The Green Century Institute and Planetwork are working with several San Francisco Bay Area groups that were involved in the seminal World Environment Day week in San Francisco June 5–11, 2005  http://www.wed2005.org  in the development of this combination daytime symposium, evening rally/celebration and late night dance party. As in the past, the Digital Be-In will reach beyond the physical event with a live netcast, information-intense website and new kinds of exposure and interaction via social networks and blogs. The theme “Planet Code” implies our writing (and re-writing where necessary) the “codes” that define our place within and interaction with the natural environment, and calls upon the high technology community we have encouraged and celebrated over the years to empower the sustainability movement with bold, forward-thinking initiatives. 

Sponsorship
Digital Be-In 14 will offer a variety of opportunities for sponsors to reach opinion leaders, press and a receptive public interested in SOLUTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE CULTURE. All presentations and content associated with the EARTH DAY BE-IN will emphasize new projects and initiatives: actions! We encourage sponsors to use the Be-In as a launching platform for products and campaigns that are making a difference. Outreach via marketing messages, the Be-In website, associated organization websites, social networks and public relations will be designed to inform and connect the public with sustainable culture resources. 2006 is a vital year for shifting the tide of awareness and action toward sustainability and April 22, 2006 promises to be a pivotal date. Please contact Michael Gosney or Justin Weiner from GCI for details on sponsorship programs.

# FYI the US runs a school of assasins / torture at Ft. Benning, GA
Previously called School Of the Americas (SOA),
now called Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).
Congress demanded SOA be closed down. So they simply renamed it.
SOA used to be in Panama, until Manuel Noriega said it had to go.
Noriega was an important drug smuggling ally for the CIA.
When he broke with the CIA because he was not happy about the US school of torture in Panama, his days were numbered. 
Two other notable men who the CIA made alliances with:
Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden.
The CIA makes allies of people it can use to torture and murder it's enemies.
The CIA was arming, training and using Osama Bin Laden to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
Before Sept 11, 2001, the CIA was negotiating an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to be built by Haliburton, paid for by Enron, to supply Unocal 76.  Those negotiations broke down.  That was plan A.
Plan B was flying our own airplanes into our own buildings and blaming them.
SEE: Operation Northwoods (1962) Plan B has been on the table for 43 years.
Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al are part of Project for a new American Century (PNAC) who wrote: (a year before 911)
Without a Pearl Harbor style invasion the American people will not accept 
the empirical mobilization necessary to seize middle eastern oil. 
CIA initiated Saddam Hussein by having him commit an assasination in Iraq to prove himself.
Once installed to power by CIA, Saddam did oversee the torture and execution of an entire generation Iraqis.
Every Iraqi student or activist who had political aspirations was killed by Saddam who was a CIA operative.

obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies 
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776 
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, 
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. 
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. 
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. 
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. 
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. 
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. 
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures. 
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. 
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: 
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: 
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: 
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: 
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: 
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: 
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. 
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. 
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. 
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

They are stained with the blood of your relations. You and I were long friends.You are now my enemy and I am yours.".........................Benjamin Franklin 7-5-1775
