The Pentagon vs The Net
Bloggers beware.

As the world turns networked, the Pentagon is calculating the military
opportunities that computer networks, wireless technologies and the
modern media offer.

From influencing public opinion through new media to designing
\"computer network attack\" weapons, the US military is learning to fight
an electronic war.

The declassified document is called \"Information Operations Roadmap\". It
was obtained by the National Security Archive at George Washington
University using the Freedom of Information Act.

Officials in the Pentagon wrote it in 2003. The Secretary of Defense,
Donald Rumsfeld, signed it.

The \"roadmap\" calls for a far-reaching overhaul of the military\'s
ability to conduct information operations and electronic warfare. And,
in some detail, it makes recommendations for how the US armed forces
should think about this new, virtual warfare.

AB 585, which is based on a law in Arizona and Maine, is now about to hit the floor of the California Assembly.

# Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In and the Bike Church
Present a showing of:

The Triplets of Belleville

Friday January 27th, 8:00pm 
at the Bike Church, 703 Pacific Ave, south of Laurel,
Santa Cruz 
$5 Suggested Donation

A sophisticated, wholly original brand of animated
storytelling that manages to be at once deliriously
eccentric and deliciously sinister. An international
story of bicycling, rescue, singing, the passage of
time and the nature of evil. This determinedly weird,
almost wordless French concoction casts a charming
spell.

PLUS bike films, alley cat races, thrilling and funny
short films, an intermission, great company, and maybe
a rollicking bike ride after the movie. 

A Benefit for the Bike Church!Ê You already are
familiar with the Bike Church, right? From the Santa
Cruz DIY Guide: You need not be a mechanic to use the
Bike Church\'s do-it-yourself repair facility. Church
ministers (mechanics) are there to help you with the
repair of your bicycle. The Bike Church encourages
you to learn by getting your hands dirty and
familiarize yourself with the machine you rely on to
get you from place to place.

BRING blankets, pillows, jammies, friends, wine, &
food to share for intermission. If you bring folding
chairs, please situate them in the back so people
sitting on the floor can see. Bring your bike for the
Midnight Mystery Ride after the movie. Your donation
will directly support the work of the Bike Church. 

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?  Its 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.

NEW LOCATION! The new Bike Church location is at 703
Pacific Ave, near the Saturn Cafe.

BREAKING NEWS, updated winter schedule,
discussion,do-it-yourself, email list, the works.

# EVENT 1/27: Rain Dance Chinese New Year Celebration!!!!
Hello lovely family!
 Don\'t miss this fabulous once-a-year party now happening at 1015
Folsom. It used to be at Cell Space, but because of the popularity it
got moved to the biggest, badddest nightclub in the city.
 And don\'t forget to be there on time for the midnight parade and
ritual. I\'ll be parading with my Samba drum troup from Santa Cruz to
rev up the doggy-style festivities (oops, no pun intended:)  Come check
it out! Woof! Woof!

~ Friday, Jan 27th ~ @ 1015 Folsom

GUNG HAY FAT CHOY!!! 

YEAR OF THE DOG 

Rain Dance invites you to join us for a very special evening of music,
performance art, ritual dance, lion dancers, dragons, mask making,
unstoppable festive fun overload. 

We will be fully recreating the entire space and building it into a
lush bass temple that can hold the special vibe that this party is
known and loved for. Only 2 to 3 rooms throughout the night will be
used to keep the vibe more together. A full lounge area with organic
food, coconuts, and massage will help create that container. There is
so much creative juice and love going in to this party, I can already
taste the sweet nectar of the vibe.  

1015 Folsom has recently made large upgrades to all of their sound
systems. And it has been assured to me that the security will be on the
mellow tip for the evening. Just do not forget your ID, as there will
be nothing we can do about that

The Procession is @ 12 Midnight Sharp so please do not be late or we
will have to tie your feet together and flog you with bass and you will
want to dance so bad, but you can’t because your feet are tied
together. So get there early ;)

Fort Knox Five (Fort Knox Recodings all the way from Washington D.C.)
Lorin (Bassnectar) needs no introduction at this point 
Lee Coombs (Thrust Recordings U.K.)

# At the Center for Sex & Culture, 398 11th St. at Harrison.
Saturday afternoon, 1/28, Tracy Bartlett does her workshop The Menopause Transformation: An Internal Earthquake [1 cracker]
at the Center for Sex & Culture, 398 11th St. at Harrison. 1--5 pm, $30 per person. Pre-register at (415) 255-1155 or mail@sexandculture.org. 
Menopause is one of the most life-altering transitions we go through in the course of a human lifetime. This culture\'s tendency to focus 
solely on the physical aspects of menopause misses the stunningly powerful and often disorienting changes we are undergoing in all 
facets of our lives. As just one example: we are relearning not only changes in how our body responds sexually but our whole relationship 
with sexuality as well. With so much profound restructuring all happening at once we can certainly feel lost on rough vast seas. But we are not alone -- by the year 2010 there will be 50 million women experiencing some phase of menopause. That much upheaval will shake up the whole culture, and just in time. 
Come join us to explore letting go, allowing change and choosing the inevitable. This workshop will include presentation, small group 
discussion and guided exercises designed to provide the tools for mapping and navigating this shifting terrain. 
Tracy\'s classes are popular and informative, fun and lively. She\'s taught experientially for 20 years, including sex classes for 10, and 
she has a master\'s in counseling plus a degree in women\'s studies.

We would like to invite you to participate in two fabulous fundraisers for Loveparade San Francisco 2006 
http://www.loveparadesf.org  and the SomArts Cultural Center (www.somarts.org). Both events willbe held 
at SomArts, 934 Brannan Street in San Francisco. 

On Friday, January 27th, Skills DJ Workshop has brought together 20 
different production companies and 50 DJs for \"GIVING BACK THE LOVE\". This 
should be a rocking party showcasing the exuberance and idealism of the 
younger side of the bay area electronic dance scene. The flyer and lineup 
can be seen at 
http://www.skillsdj.com 

The 2005 Loveparade was a great success with well over 50,000 people 
spreading the love along Market Street and at Civic Center. The costs of 
the city fees and personel required for a downtown parade were huge however, 
so many groups are coming together to pay the remaining debts so that 
planning for the Loveparade San Francisco 2006 can proceed full steam ahead! 
For all those many people who forgot to give the $5 donation at the 
Loveparade gates, here is your chance to help make sure that Loveparade 
stays a yearly event in San Francisco, a city with an international 
reputation for Love in the streets. 

The SomArts Cultural Gallery is a non-profit art gallery and event space 
that hosted many seminal electronic dance and art parties until those were 
prohibited in 1996 because of permitting problems. Because of the 
importance of Somarts to the community, the SFLNC pushed the City to allow 
entertainment at SomArts and full time late night permits were granted in 
2003. Recently, Somarts completed a major building project to allow high 
occupancy for events, so the community is now coming together to help pay 
off some of SomArts construction loans! After almost ten years, Somarts 
will now be fully available to the community for special events! 

All equipment, talent and labor for these events is being donated by the 
community and all proceeds will be split evenly between Somarts and 
Loveparade San Francisco! 

While the DJ lineups are pretty much set for these events, we\'re still 
looking for volunteers for security, bartending, and setup and cleanup. 
There is also room for some art, visuals and performance.

# January 22 & 29 Intermediate HoopDance Class in SF with Christabel
http://www.cellspace.org
Due to the flurry of emails asking for an intermediate class, I have decided to set one up! I usually only teach intermediate once every two or three months, so if you are interested now is the time to jump in... Two intensive Sunday seminars from 12-2pm. This INTERMEDIATE LEVEL class provides a total of 4 hours of training. Designed for those who want to master more complex moves, create supple transitions and cultivate the awareness of a performer. All students who enroll must already have mastered all skills from beginner class. First meeting focuses on torso and arms. Second meeting focuses on off body moves including advanced jumps, spins, body rolls, tosses. These seminars take moves you already know and has you perform them on many other dimensions and angles. More challenging moves and tricks also provided. Emphasis is on creating more flow in transitions, integrating dance with your complex moves. Each evening will have a jam circle to close with performance critique by your peers. Hot music, great people, detailed instruction. Printed copies of two articles written by HoopGirl on the topic of performing hoopdance, provided to all students. $85 for two 2 hour sessions. Enrollment preference given to those who take entire series to promote the \"intensive hoop bootcamp\" experience.

#  1/29, Pacifica, BAVEG Vegan Food Party + \"Food as Advocacy\"
Please join us for Bay Area Vegetarians first Vegan Food Party of 2006! 
 
This is a wonderful opportunity to start the New Year by sharing compassionate and cruelty-free foods with like-minded folks.  Everyone is welcome, both veg and non-veg people, members and non-members.  In fact, we encourage non-veg folks to attend so they can see the variety of wonderful vegan foods available. 
 
Our Vegan Food Parties are potluck-style, meaning each person should bring a vegan dish that provides six generous servings (or if there are two of you, one dish that serves 12, and so forth), a serving utensil, ingredient list, and your own place setting and beverage.  
 
Please share a homemade vegan dish with us -- it could be your favorite dish  when you were a new veg*n, the one to you always serve to non-veg friends, or simply one you enjoy making.  We also welcome folks to \"animal test\" new vegan recipes  -- you\'ll find many willing volunteers to try new vegan foods at our VFPs.
 
This month\'s VFP has a special presentation: 
 
\"Food as Advocacy\" with Alex Bury
 
Leafleting, tabling, and protesting are great forms of advocacy to help animals and promote vegetarianism, but a great veg*n dish can speak volumes towards promoting veg*n foods.  Alex Bury will share strategies and tips useful towards creating veg*n dishes that are particularly appealing to your non-veg family and friends, as well as aspiring veg*ns.  She will demonstrate - live and in person! - how easy it is to create this type of dish. 
 
Alex Bury is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, where she learned all about cooking meat.  Now she is a vegan chef (formerly of Sparks restaurant in Guerneville), a full-time PETA staffer, and a chef instructor for the McDougall program.
 
This presentation is geared towards new or aspiring vegetarians as well as those wishing to use delicious food to promote vegetarianism.
 
What: Vegan Food Party
Where: Pacifica (about 15 minutes south of SF)

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

# Dick \'N Dubya: A Republican Outreach Cabaret Thurs, Fri, Sat Feb 2 - 25 8.00pm

Thurs $10-15 sliding scale; $5 student rush at door. Fri & Sat $15-22
 
Dubya (Amos Glick) and Dick (Ed Holmes) fresh from an extremely  
successful run at The Marsh Berkeley, during which they exerted their  
considerable talents to convert everyone in the audience into a card- 
carrying member of the Republican Party, are ready to try their luck  
in San Francisco.  The show is full of singing (yes, Dubya sings),  
dancing (yes, Dick dances), speeches (Dubya, much to Dick\'s  
consternation, has decided to write his own) and a raucous press  
conference where the audience asks the questions. It is rumored that  
Barbara Bush is so encouraged by her son\'s derring-do that she is  
flying out to assist him.

Ed Holmes, a navy veteran and San Francisco Mime Troupe member for  
nineteen years, instigated the annual St. Stupid\'s Day Parade, now in  
its 27th year.  Amos Glick, a San Francisco Mime Troupe member since  
1997, represented the troupe on the Lollapalooza \'95 Tour doing  
political sketch comedy and guerrilla theater.  Masters of political  
satire, they honed their impersonations of Dick \'n Dubya during the  
Mime Troupe\'s outdoor shows.  Bill Allard (director) is a founding  
member of Duck\'s Breath Mystery Theater.  In 2004, he directed Merle  
Kessler and Raoul Brody in BROKE at The Marsh, San Francisco.

Where on Earth are we going? And what can we do about it? 

These are two of the questions that lie at the heart of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium . The Symposium explores the link between three of humanity\'s most critical concerns: environmental sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. Using video clips from some of the world\'s most respected thinkers, along with inspiring short films, leading edge information and dynamic group interactions, the Symposium allows participants to gain a new insight into the very nature of our time and the opportunity we have to shape and impact the direction of our world with our everyday choices and actions.

The aim of the Symposium is not merely to learn more about the world, but to grapple and come to grips with the very assumptions that underlie the way we ourselves see the world and our place in it, and with what each of us can do - both individually and cooperatively - to move the world in this new direction.

If you are ready to be disturbed, inspired and moved to action, if you are ready to be introduced to a thriving community of like-hearted, deeply committed cohorts who are actively engaged in awakening from and changing the dream of our modern industrial culture, we invite you to come to the next Symposium.

THE LOST ART OF NUTRITION

A Lecture by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Project Director of the China
Study and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional
Biochemistry at Cornell University

Many in our society, perhaps most, do not appreciate the simple fact
that we are what we eat. We pay a huge price for this
misunderstanding. Many believe that the single most important
disabling budgetary factor in our society is the rising cost of health
care, more aptly known as disease care. Central to this difficulty is
our abject misunderstanding of nutrition, what it means, how it can be
used, how we study its effects, and how national policy on its effects
on health is developed. Using conservative figures, it is easy to
argue that the leading cause of death in the U.S. is our
misunderstanding of nutrition. As a result, we rely on drugs as a
means to health instead of food as a means to health. In brief, the
present system fosters wealth for the few at the expense of health for
the many.

Dr. Campbell, with his son Tom, is the author of the recently
published book The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of
Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet,
Weight Loss and Long-Term Health    see 
http://www.thechinastudy.com
The New York Times has recognized the study (known formally as the
China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project, a 20 year partnership
which surveyed diseases and lifestyle factors in rural China and
Taiwan) as the \"Grand Prix of epidemiology.\" In The China Study, Dr.
Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease,
diabetes, and cancer, and also its ability to reduce or reverse the
risk or effects of these deadly illnesses.  For an excerpt from the
Introduction, visit
http://www.thechinastudy.com/PDFs/ChinaStudy_Excerpt.pdf

For more than 40 years, Dr. Campbell has been active in experimental
nutrition research and policy development, has authored more than 300
research papers, and has participated in many national and
international diet and health policy reports.

The sexual force is the light generator of the body. When it is clear, flowing and open we connect with our own feminine and masculine in JOY and the full expression of that Life force. In this evening we will experience breathing and sounding to open to this flow. We will clear and activate the Chakras in preparation for a Tantric Deeksha. This deeksha is a nondenominational energy transference where a neuro-biological process creates a shift in the brain.The joy center is stimulated.

Sunday, February 12 10 AM - 6 PM
In this day Jwala will share some of the most profound techniques she has learned in her 30 years of Tantra. COME remove the wounds and blocks that keep you from experiencing your sexual and life force full expression...whether these conditionings come from family dynamics or social programs once these blocks are cleared, new and more fulfilling possibilities are only a breath away,your true human potential awaits you.  Some of the days techniques include: Fire Breath Energy Orgasm...this is a conscious connected breath technique that releases old stuck energy and makes way for your erotic potential.  Next we will delve into a Tibetean Pulsing technique that releases wounds from the bone and often is done in dyads or group-chains lying on the floor. Lastly we will experience some of the exercises from herTantra book by running sexual energy. No explicit sex in the workshop.
$85 Advance, $100 At The Door

# International Quirkyalone Day Party Saturday, February 11 8: 00 pm Free
Fourth Annual International Quirkyalone Day Party, San Francisco (IQD IV)
Saturday, February 11 8 pm Cafe Royale 800 Post Street at Leavenworth
Whether you are single, coupled, widowed, divorced, or married,  
International Quirkyalone Day is here for you as an alternative to  
the mass-marketing barrage of Valentine\'s Day.

What is International Quirkyalone Day? IQD is a do-it-yourself  
celebration of romance, friendship, and independent spirit. It\'s a  
celebration of all kinds of love: for your friends, your family, your  
partner if you have one, and last but not least, yourself. IQD is a  
feel-good alternative to the marketing barrage of Valentine\'s Day and  
an antidote to the silicone version of love presented in shows such  
as Hooking Up and The Bachelor. It celebrates true romance,  
independence, creativity, friendship, solitude, and  
sociability.International
Quirkyalone Day is not anti-Valentine\'s Day, nor is it a pity party  
for single people. It is merely a coincidence that IQD happens to  
fall on the same day! (That\'s our story anyway, and we\'re sticking to  
it.)
International Quirkyalone Day began in San Francisco with a party at  
Atlas Cafe in 2003. In 2005, IQD was celebrated in 24 cities as  
faraway as Sydney and New Delhi. Last year\'s San Francisco party was  
featured on MSNBC\'s \"Countdown with Keith Olbermann. . . \" Watch the  
clip here.
http://quirkyalone.net/qa/iqd.php?c=msnbc
This year\'s IQD is a release party for the paperback version of  
Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics by Sasha Cagen.
IQD parties tend to be warm, intergenerational affairs. Feel free to  
come alone, with friends, or with a partner. This is a friendly crowd.
There will be party games, raffle, an alone-time table, and more . . .
Elegant attire encouraged but not required.
Quirkytogethers/couples welcome. FREE!

# Two ways to help animals in San Francisco on Sun., February 12, 2006! 
 Come to one or both:

 (1) Join the Veggie Jews\' Tsedakah Brigade and participate in the
 PETA campaign against Kentucky Fried Cruelty (see
 www.Kentuckyfriedcruelty.com). You can educate the public regarding
 KFC\'s treatment of chickens by passing out leaflets at KFC, 1900
 Irving Street at the corner of 20th Avenue in San Francisco from NOON
 to 1:00 p.m. PETA is providing the literature.

 (2) At 1:00 p.m. we\'ll walk two blocks to Shangri La vegetarian
 restaurant (2026 Irving St. at 22nd Ave., 731-2548), a Kosher-vegan
 restaurant, where we\'ll order around 1:15 p.m. This is a chance to
 eat tasty, low-cost, Chinese vegan food; to socialize; and most
 importantly, to spend a few minutes writing letters to help relieve
 the suffering of animals. Suggestions for subjects and recipients
 of letters will be available but feel free to bring your own agenda,
 as well as your own paper, envelopes, pen and stamps.
 In the event of rain that is heavier than a San Francisco
 fog/drizzle, the event will be rescheduled. For information and to
 RSVP, write to veggiejews@cyberonic.com.

 [Veggie Jews is an on-line and real world organization with events in local communities dedicated to supporting Jewish vegans and vegetarians and spreading vegan, vegetarian and animal rights values into the Jewish community.  All Veggie Jews\' events are open to Jews of all ages and our non-Jewish friends. We are not a singles or religious group, although single and observant people are always welcome.  For group information or to join, please go to

# Celcius  9/11 Wed Feb 15 7:00 pm FREE  but  $5  donations are accepted
 
CELCIUS 9/11 Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This film by Jeremy Wright is subtitled: \"Full Spectrum Dominance and  
the War of Terror.\" It asks tough questions that Michael Moore\'s  
\"Farenhiet 9/11\" did not ask. It features the highlights of the  
International Citizens\' Inquiry into 911 organized by the 9/11 Truth  
Alliance in the spring of 2003. In part 1, Jeremy provides a very  
extensive and in-depth overview of all different aspects of the 9/11  
attacks. Part 2 is dedicated to \"the bigger picture,\" the political  
climate that is surrounding us now: the plans of world domination and  
the execution of the plans by the U.S. government. This informative  
film is also very moving emotionally, with a lot of personal passion  
and compassion.

# Saturday, Feb. 18, 10 AM to 12:30 AM 
Health Care for All  \"Citizen\" congressional hearing
 Board of Supervisors\' Chambers at Marin Civic Center. Lynn Woolsey will preside, Sen. Sheila Kuehl has been invited, and we hope to have numerous other legislators present. The object is to tell them what\'s wrong with our health-care system and to demand a system that works. There will be many people testifying. These hearings are being held around the country with the support of Rep. John Conyers; it\'s all part of building an irresistible groundswell for a single-payer system.
 This is all part of building the mass movement that we will require before we can hope that a single-payer system will pass. There are too many monied interests opposed to expect that mere good will and good sense could overthrow the disastrous system we have today. Like civil rights, like the anti-tobacco movement, we must first have a sea change in public thinking. 
 Information about hearings and planned hearings nationwide is available at www.Healthcare-now.org, our local site http://healthcareforall.org/marin.html

Film Series on 9/11: An Inside Job
	
The Truth and Lies of 9/11

Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This is the famous documentary by Mike Ruppert who once was a  
narcotics investigator in the L.A. Police Department until he  
realized that the CIA was dealing drugs and arms.  Authorities  
offered him a nice sallary to keep his mouth shut, but they obviously  
underestimated him; Mike became a whistle blower instead.  They tried  
to threaten him, they even shot him, but he survived and never backed  
down.  He spent many years touring the country and exposing the CIA\'s  
drug dealings and other dirty secrets.  Today Mike is justly  
considered the pioneer of the 9/11 truth movement.  In this  
documentary, Mike explains the connection between the CIA and Wall  
Street -- Wall Street being a front, a \"laundromat,\" for the CIA.  He  
points out a connection between the put options on both American and  
United Airlines and the CIA as well as many other incriminating  
facts.  He is the author of Crossing the Rubicon,  the second best- 
selling book after The Kean Commission Report on 911.    http://

# Feb 25 NATIONAL BROADCAST OF AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY ON LINK TV

The Witness Highlights the Dramatic and Inspiring Personal Transformation of Tough Brooklyn Construction Contractor Whose Heart is Opened by the Love of a Kitten

Airs Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 PM PST /10 PM EST

San Francisco, CA—Jan. 17, 2006—Link TV today announced the upcoming broadcast of the award-winning documentary The Witness, produced by James LaVeck and directed by Jenny Stein of Tribe of Heart. The Witness,  which airs Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 PM PST, 10 PM EST, during Link TV’s pledge drive, tells the inspiring story of tough construction contractor turned animal rescuer Eddie Lama. A film festival favorite, The Witness has won seven Best Documentary awards and one Best of Festival award. Los Angeles Times columnist Howard Rosenberg wrote, “The Witness is one man’s truth that cries out for mass exposure… may be the most important and persuasive film about animals ever made.”

Actor William Baldwin, who calls The Witness \"one of the most moving documentaries I\'ve ever seen,” urges viewers to “watch this important, life-changing film.” Baldwin and his wife, singer-songwriter Chynna Phillips of the musical group Wilson-Phillips, were so impressed with The Witness that they hosted screenings at their home for their friends and colleagues.

“Eddie Lama, who learned about violence through his own rites of passage on the mean streets of Brooklyn, now speaks with eloquence, passion and humility about the pressing need to protect the vulnerable,” said Baldwin. “That a man with his life experience could be so completely transformed by spending time with a kitten is a testimony both to the magic of the human-animal relationship and the magic of the human spirit.\"

“So many people who have seen The Witness at film festivals and independent theatres have asked us, ‘why isn’t this playing on national TV?’” said the film’s producer James LaVeck. “We always tell them there are a lot of great films they’re not getting to see that tell the truth about what goes on behind closed doors in this country. That’s why now, this opportunity to reach a mass audience in partnership with a broadcaster with the integrity and independence of Link TV, means so much.”

“We bring documentary films to the American viewer that extend far beyond the narrow scope of the popular media,” said Link TV Producer Toni Whiteman. “The Witness is one of those films, made with the courage and commitment to speak on behalf of those who have no voice. The strength of the force to banish this provocative film is the very reason we chose to broadcast it.”

ABOUT TRIBE OF HEART: Producer James LaVeck and Director Jenny Stein founded their Ithaca, New York-based non-profit production company, Tribe of Heart, to fill an unmet need for films that explore the human potential to respond to injustice with creativity and non-violence.

ABOUT LINK TV: Link TV is a non-commercial, independent television network available in more than 26 million U.S. homes on DIRECTV channel 375 and DISH Network channel 9410. The 24-hour programming is a mix of documentaries, international news, foreign films and the best of World Music. Link TV is operated by Link Media, Inc., a California non-profit organization, with production studios in San Francisco, New York and Washington.

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.

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.

Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton

Grow your own food. Eat your perishables. Save your non-perishables.
Have lots of grains and seeds in glass mason jars, so you can sprout and eat them while waiting for your crops.

Do not recycle large bottles. Especially keep glass and stainless steel.
Fill with spring water or tap water and store in safe places.
Start composting NOW. Build your soil.
Do not let \"gardeners\" remove your leaves. They become soil.
Flag down a tree trimming truck. Have them dump wood chips in your yard.
PLANT TREES

Why build it the shackled rail cars and trucks and camps and order 
guillotines on this scale if you are NOT planning on using it?


\"Excuse me sir, would you step this way?\"

Here is a suggested possibility of a proper response to retain your 
rights to not be searched and seized by the USA corporation or local 
agent offering to \"protect\" you.

Option of a possible response based upon my and others\' understanding 
and reading of court findings revolving around exactly at what point 
you give up your Constitutional non-search & seizure rights:

In the real world, asserting your rights politely usually only works if 
your rights are respected by a higher-up who knows the legal score, and 
you  answer no question ever.  Not in detention, not in jail, ever. At 
some point someone somewhere in the chain knows this truthful 
information - while the practical full loss of all rights in an 
executive  dictatorship for our own good is not in effect.

\"How are you today, sir?\" This is a trained ploy to elicit \'proper\' 
response without the officer even knowing why. He is not told the whole 
truth and is simply told to start the investigation by asking...so as 
to \"be friendly.\"

Any answer or giving up of documents at any point makes you 
\"participating in an investigation\" - unless you answer ONLY in the 
form of a QUESTION.

Example: smile, and politely ask \"Who is asking and why?\" 
This immediately determines the encounter status and 
whether the person is acting in their private or public capacity.

If you ANSWER, you have automatically given up all rights. Once given 
up, they cannot be restored. Because \"Once you testify in part you must 
testify in whole.\"

If taken against your will, you can come back later and win.

Be friendly, be polite.

\"I respectfully do not consent to this encounter. If I had and gave you 
such documents can they be used against me in a court of law? 
Would you please inform your supervisor what I just said? Am I free to go?\" 
(Immediately determines your status.)

Theoretically, this applies not just to airports, but roadblocks, 
traffic stops, street encounters = they are all the same.
Here are the most current pictures on American prison  camps I\'ve
seen yet, with what will seem like a valid reason for filling them up.
