Scientists fear unusual weather behind massive seabird die-off

Excerpt: "The ISCCP study shows that the proportion of high-level cloud to low cloud has been climbing." That's where most chemtrails are laid down.
 New cloud formations blocking more sun

 28 January 2006 news service

Sunshine just isn't what it used to be. Since 2000 less sunlight has been reaching the Earth's surface, say solar physicists. But paradoxically this drop in radiation hasn't cooled our planet.

Philip Goode's team at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark measured the amount of sunlight reflected by the Earth's atmosphere onto the moon and back again. They found that the Earth is reflecting 3 per cent more sunlight than it did between 1985 and 2000 (Eos, vol 87, p 37).

The effect could be caused by increasing cloud cover, says Goode. Recent data from the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) shows that the total cloud cover grew in this period. But most sunlight hitting clouds bounces off and never reaches the Earth's surface, so the question troubling climate scientists is why global temperatures are still rising.

The answer may lie in a curious rearrangement of cloud cover during the past five years, says Goode. The ISCCP study shows that the proportion of high-level cloud to low cloud has been climbing. Low-lying clouds help cool the Earth by reflecting sunlight, while high clouds act predominantly as blankets, trapping heat. So although the total cover has increased, the change in the type of cover has compensated, allowing temperatures to rise, says Goode.

"This is a reminder that climate change is subtle, and what seems obvious - that less sunlight means cooling - may not be right," he says.

DHS "visits" 1,500 California banks, rifles safe deposit boxes over 12 mos.
only agents from Homeland Security (during such an event) would be in charge of opening safe deposit boxes and determining what items would be given to bank customers. 
  At this point they were told that no weapons, cash, gold, or silver will be allowed to leave the bank -- only various paperwork will be given to its owners.

Robert Fisk | The Problem with Democracy
And now, horror of horrors, the Palestinians have elected the wrong party to power. Robert Fisk outlines the US's "democracy," citing Palestine's elections as supposed to have given their support to the friendly, pro-Western, corrupt, absolutely pro-American Fatah, which had promised to "control" them, rather than to Hamas, which said they would represent them. And, bingo, they have chosen the wrong party again.

A Declaration of the Right to the Establishment of the Bioregional Cooperative 
Commonwealth of Cascadia

We, of the bioregion of Cascadia, in order to make a balanced socio-
ecological network of communities proclaim our need to establish and 
maintain a bioregional commonwealth.  A commonwealth that is a 
cooperation of diverse and independent communities working together in 
times or situations of necessity.  A commonwealth system to maintain and 
appropriately interact with the various commons.  We, of the bioregion of 
Cascadia, have a right to establishing a commonwealth that will both facilitate 
and enact the all-inclusive consensual will of the democratic dialogue within 
this bioregion.  

Frank Olson, Dachau, and Ft. Detrick

Excerpts from link, below:
    In 2002, all of the pieces fell into place. Dr. Frank
    Olson, it was discovered, ran the Special Operations Division at Fort
Detrick, which, in addition to dealing with anthrax and mind control 
was involved in "assassinations materials research," "biological warfare
experiments in populated areas" and "terminal interrogations." Dr. Olson 
not commit suicide due to a nervous breakdown, as the family was 
told, nor did he commit suicide because of a reaction to LSD, as they were
told in 1975. Dr. Olson, who was posthumously outed as a CIA agent, was
simply a man who knew too much. During an August 2002 press conference,
the family spelled it out...
    A German documentary on Operation ARTICHOKE put it succinctly: "The
search for the circumstances surrounding the mysterious death of Dr. Frank
Olson begins in 1945, with the liberation of the concentration camp at
Dachau, Germany."

 At the start of Bush's "State of the Union" address, we will shout, honk, whistle, clap, beat drums, blare horns, make music, bang pots and pans -- Make noise to drown out Bush's lies! 

 Then we will SPEAK OUT with our ideas for what we can do to end the war in Iraq and restore democracy in our country. 

 Reject Bush's Lies and His Program!! 
 He lied to take the country to war, illegally spies on American citizens, and defies Congressional ban on torture. He cuts taxes for the rich while poverty deepens in our country. He has spent over $314 Billion on the War on Iraq but the people in New Orleans do not have the resources they need to recover from Hurricane Katrina.

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

 Rebecca Moore-Google Earth as a Citizen

 Citizens are confronted today by a bewildering array of environmental 
 concerns at every level: the effects of global climate-change, 
 national resource management policy (to drill for oil in ANWR vs. 
 protecting the wilderness), California state-wide water concerns and 
 local issues such as timber harvesting and watershed protection.

 Rebecca will present a live demonstration of Google Earth, including 
 several specific case studies developed by ordinary citizens which 
 have already achieved results, including helping to halt a proposed 
 timber harvest plan in the Santa Cruz Mountains. See this SF

Kid-friendly environment, but this movie is pretty damn disturbing with some paranoid imagery. 

Brazil  1985  Directed by the great genius Terry Gilliam 
Written by Terry Gilliam and Tom Stoppard 

Dr. Yo sez, “This is my favorite film of all time.” 

First known as the animator and only American member of Monty Python, Gilliam has written and directed many astonishing films such as “12 Monkeys,” “The Fisher King,” and “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Gilliam’s dystopian masterpiece, “Brazil,” is a dreamlike, terrifying, and hilarious black comedy about a bureaucratic mishap in a totalitarian future society. In this sumptuously designed and photographed piece, the art direction is so excellent that it doesn’t even matter if the story or acting is worthy. And yet the film is satisfying on all levels. Co-written by the brilliant English playwright, Tom Stoppard, known for his excellent farces. If you’re a fan of Franz Kafka or George Orwell, but you have a sense of humor about it, then this is the film for you!!!

# 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.

Materials or Although Suitcases May Seem As Though They're Made of  
Stone, They Seldom Are, is on view at the Exploratorium from February  
3-June 18, 2006.

collage work.   

Admission is free. There will be light refreshments, erotic readings and a
ritual performance.

# Awakening the Dreamer 
Changing the Dream Symposium 

Saturday, February 4, 2006, 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. 
First Unitarian Universalist Church - Starr King Room 
1187 Franklin Street San Francisco, CA 94109

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.

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
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

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.

# FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: False Profit, LLC and the Hallmark Corporation Announce the Inception of a New Joint Venture:


Alone?... Again?

Try not to let it burn you up. Fucking manufactured postcard holiday anyway, right? Why should you let hallmark decide the one day of the year you need to have a date? Fuck Hallmark! Fuck Valentine's Day!

Woah there, cowboy. Times like these we need some outside help. Some words of wisdom. A call to tolerance, maybe.

    "Hatred ever kills, love never dies."
    - Gandhi

    "Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
    Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
    Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."
    - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Of course, neither Gandhi nor the Reverend Doctor ever had to push through a Valentine's Day without any nookie. They were also both extremely bad dancers. So, for our inspiration we turn to a lesser known but equally righteous quixotic quotable, Edna Millay:

    "I love humanity, but I hate people."

There. That's more like it. Edna's our kinda girl. She definitely got down and got around in her day. Fuck, there's a book about her and her friends called "All-Night Party!" And what parties they were: "one might see English Rothschilds, French princesses, Russian grand dukes, mobsters, prizefighters, men of the stock exchange and Manhattan's social elite, elegant homosexuals, Village bohemians, white movie celebrities, and smartly dressed employees of the U.S. Post Office."

Make False Profit your Valentine for a celebration of the holiday that the American Corporation put on the map.

# 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  
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  
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.
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!
Cafe Royale 800 Post Street at Leavenworth San Francisco

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.

Bay Area Relocalize: Preparing for the End of Cheap Oil

In response to the growing concerns around climate change and the end 
of cheap oil, Post Carbon Institute has launched an exciting new 
project called Bay Area Relocalize. The project is assessing our 
region's use of resources and developing a model for local 
communities to bring the production of our food, energy and essential 
goods closer to home. We are connecting with neighborhoods, 
businesses, and community groups to mobilize around reducing our 
consumption of resources from outside the region and replacing them 
with local resources.  Examples include creating community gardens, 
installing solar panels on homes and businesses, capturing rainwater, 
improving public transit, and building affordable homes nearer to 
where we work. This 2-hour event hosted at the Ecology Center will 
feature a panel of presenters from the project and Q&A. Proceeds will 
benefit the Bay Area Relocalize project.

Time: 7pm - 9pm
Location: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, near Dwight Way, Berkeley.
Cost: Requested donation of $5-20 (sliding scale). No one turned away 
for lack of funds..
Info: 510-548-2220 x233.

# Training Young Trees for Structure and Form - Palo Alto
Local arborist Kevin Raftery will be leading this tree pruning workshop on February 18 from 9 am - 12 pm, as part of Canopy's Community Tree Steward Workshop Series. There are still a few spots available for this workshop. It is free, thanks to a grant from California ReLeaf and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Prevention, but you must pre-register. Contact Canopy or check our website  for more information.

# 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, our local site

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://

Link TV Makes Pro-Animal Film Available to Viewers in 26 Million American Homes

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
(DIRECTV Ch. 375/DISH Network Ch. 9410)

Send a personalized e-vite to friends and family:

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.

# The Color of Palo Alto: Art Meets Canopy
How a Public Art Project is Helping to Preserve Our Urban Forest – One Photograph at a Time
Saturday, March 4, 9 -10:30 am Free
Presented by Canopy and the Palo Alto Art Center

Celebrate Arbor Month with a lively presentation by artist Samuel Yates on how The Color of Palo Alto incorporates technology, contemporary art, environmental protection, and public service into one award-winning public art project that helps maintain our urban forest.

The presentation will focus on how the City of Palo Alto will use the project to:
•	Respond more accurately and efficiently to daily tree inquiries from residents. 
•	Coordinate tree maintenance decisions between departments.
•	Assist the building permit application, smart planning, and tree verification process. 
•	Preserve city trees by reducing root system destruction.
•	Reduce pollution and natural resource use.
•	Promote the City’s environmental and renewable energy initiatives. 
•	Create the nation’s first photo-assisted 911 emergency response system.

As part of a public art project, artist Samuel Yates photographed each of the 17,860 properties in Palo Alto to find the average color of each property, street, and neighborhood. The final results, including "The Color of Palo Alto," will be unveiled later this year and used as paint, font, and product colors thereafter. The potential city benefits emerged in 2001 when the artist offered Palo Alto a free license to use his photographs and tie them into the citywide parcel data system.

San Francisco Magazine named it the "Best Art Project in the Bay Area;" Dwell Magazine gave it their "Nice Modernist" humanitarian award; and the San Jose Mercury News called it "The Great Palo Alto Art Experiment." Come see for yourself what it’s all about!

 are pleased to announce

 Digital Be-In 14:  Planet Code   THE EARTH DAY BE-IN
April 22, 2006   SOMARTS  934 Brannan @ 8th St  SF

 Be-Integrity Symposium and Exhibition
 12 noon to 6pm
 Digital Be-In  
 Luminaries and Special Guests, Performances, Live Music
 7 pm – 11 pm
 Planet Code Dance Party
 11 pm – 4 am

Participating Organizations (partial list)
 --Earth Day Network
 --Natural World Museum
 --Environmental Non-Profit Network
 --San Francisco Alliance for Urban Sustainability
 --Women’s Global Green Action Network
 --California Institute of Integral Studies

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  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  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. 

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. 
The signers of the Declaration represented the new states as follows: 
New Hampshire: 
Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton 
John Hancock, Samual Adams, John Adams, Robert Treat Paine, Elbridge Gerry

"You are a member of government. And one of that majority which has doomed my country to destruction. You've begun to burn our towns and murder our people. Look upon you hands. 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 

Preventing / resisting  MARTIAL LAW: by building self-sufficient communities: 

Learn to resist, better yet, to be invisible.
But be visible now as we all must stand up to prosecute high crimes.
Learn the laws of sovereignty. This is the freedom gauranteed to all.

Know where you will get water in future.
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.

Get involved in your community. Create community.

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 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.
