# The End of Suburbia Thu May 25 7:00pm-9:30pm Free.
THE END OF SUBURBIA: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American  

Viewers say it best--

"This information is quite shocking. I think many people who thought  
they had sufficient information concerning the energy crisis will be  
left in a rethinking mode". - Jim, California

"The End of Suburbia is a perfect tool for introducing people to peak  
oil. Just enough humor to sugarcoat the bitter pill". - Jason,  

"'s one of the most important docs in recent years". - Anthony  
Lappe, Guerrilla News Network.

SYNOPSIS: Since World War II, North Americans have invested much of  
their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space,  
affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the population of  
suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so too has the  
suburban way of life become embedded in the American consciousness.

Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream.

But as we enter the 21st century, serious questions are beginning to  
emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. The End of  
Suburbia explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the  
planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels  
begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline  
of fossil fuels are upon us now.

What does Oil Peak mean for North America? As energy prices skyrocket  
in the coming years, how will the populations of suburbia react to  
the collapse of their dream? And what can be done NOW, individually  
and collectively, to avoid The End of Suburbia ?

Commencing at 7:00pm for socializing at Varnish's beer/wine/sake bar,  
gallery viewing, then film.

# Critical Mass - Friday 5/26 6pm Justin Herman Plaza: Market @ Embarcadero Bring bicycle, helmet, light, costume, music... 
Maybe we can encourage the people who block cross traffic to:
wait until the mass arives at that intersection, so as to offend as few drivers as possible.
Definitely hold up / wait before blocking major intersections.    BECAUSE
It would be nice to be visible to as many pedestrians and motorists as possible while
offending/ delaying as few motorists as possible.
Pissing them off is just gonna make them anti-bike.

# Free NLP Personal Transformation Weekend Seminar 

Friday, May 26, 2006 - Sunday, May 28, 2006  6:00 PM
I wanted to let you all know that there is a free NLP seminar is happening 
May 26, 27, and 28th...  This is really a great opportunity.... 

So, I went to this amazing wonderful 3 day Seminar called "Breakthrough to 
Success" about a month ago and had a profoundly transformational experience. 
The seminar leader, Christopher Howard, uses NLP practices to take you through powerful 
change work around a specific focus area of your choosing - either health, career, 
or relationships. (I absolutely love NLP and he is such a master, really!) It 
is an opportunity to work with a master trainer for three days and put all your 
energy and attention on an area of your life where you would like more fulfillment 
and success. The rewards that are possible from taking the time to do something 
like this for yourself are immeasurable. 

I attended the seminar in January and choose to focus on my career. As a result 
of the workshop I have gained inspiring new clarity around my future career direction 
and how my to pattern my current experiences to be congruent with that. The workshop 
opened doors to more then I had before thought possible. I set strategies for achieving 
my desired outcomes and have already taken action on putting some of them into place. 

I see this course as valuable to you as a forum for self growth and achieving greater 
personal fulfillment, as a place to learn new skills and tools for working with 
colleagues, family, friends, and also as an opportunity to attend a super high quality 
experiential presentation and apply the learnings you gather from the experience 
to times in your future when you may be constructing workshops and training sessions. 
Finally I see it as a opportunity for our community to come together and share a 
high quality personal development experience, and to gain some new distinctions 
around how to LIVE YOUR LIFE AS ART. I will be attending the next workshop (my 
second time) and my hope is that a whole bunch of you will be joining me too!

"We could say that love is the name we give that depth of attention 
that allows the essence of someone else to speak back to us 
in their own voice in their own way. We let them become visible but in the same 
moment, because of the selfless nature of attentiveness, also reveal ourselves."

About Xingolati Groove Cruise: 
October 2005, Who is Guy Grand... LLC, transformed a carnival cruise ship into a floating music festival. For three days and three nights Xingolati combined the ship's fabulous food and relaxing spa treatments with multiple concert venues showcasing live music from some of the country's most dynamic bands. The entire cruise was infused with Who is Guy Grand... theatrics including performance art, character exaggerations and circus theatrics. Check out JamBase's Xingolati Review or go to for more reviews. 

About Devotchka: 
Women in corsets and stiletto heels are just part of the equation. Joining us for a stylistic European hopscotch will be DEVOTCHKA. DeVotchKa's blend of gypsy instrumentation (accordion, bouzouki, and violin), mariachi horns, and flamenco guitar is perfectly suited for burlesque's vintage spectacle. With a powerful, quivering tenor and rakish leading-man speaks of the travails of a lovelorn urban castoff. He frequently paints in Southwestern shades with twangy electric guitar or adds brassy Mexicali tones on trumpet. That vivid evocation of place underlies the band's music. Deep in the stoic history of the SS Jeremiah draped in crushed velvet with DeVotchka you will feel transported.

# The Really Really Free Market Sat May 27 12pm-4pm Free!

The Really Really Free market happens on the last Saturday of every
month in Dolores Park from 12-4 pm.

What is The Really REALLY Free Market?
It's like a large community-wide garage sale, except everything is
FREE! Yes, that's right, FREE! Everyone is invitied to bring things

So this is like bartering or trading, right?
Nope. Bartering and trading go something like this: I've got this
great shirt here, what can you offer me for it?
The RRFM goes something like this: I've got this really great shirt
here. I don't really wear it anymore, but I'd hate to see it go to
waste. Do you want it? Great! Here, it's yours!

Why would i want to do a thing like that?
Because you have to many things already! Because you're just going to
throw it away anyway. Because it FEELS GOOD! Do you have things
cluttering up your home? Maybe some stuff that you don't use anymore,
but you know that someone else would probably love. One person's
trash can truly be another person's

What should I bring?
Bring *your thing* to the RRFM, whatever that is! Material goods,
food or drinks, a service to provide, a skill you have that you want
to teach to others, a performance, or anything else!

What if I don't have anything to give away?
Everyone has something to give to others. The RRFM isn't just about
giving away *stuff.* What is it that you do? Why not come to the RRFM
and find a way to do it for others, except this time for free just
for the fun of it. As a gift to others, as a gift to yourself. It's a
way of reclaiming meaning in your job, to give it as a gift,
unmediated by commerce.

Who runs the RRFM?
Well, the RRFM consists of the sum of its participants. The gift you
bring to the event, helps create what the event is for others, just
as what others bring to the event, creates what the event is for you.
That said, there are some folks who came together to help create the
structure for the RRFM to work. But it is our hope that soon enough,
our role within the RRFM will be the same as everyone else's. That
is, that each of us decides our own level
of involvement.

The RRFM is yours!
Take advantageous of that. Make it what you want it to be! If you
want to see something happening at the RRFM that isn't already
happening, than make it happen! If you want to see more people coming
to the RRFM, help spread the word! Send emails to your friends, make
and distribute flyers (make your ownor download them from the
website), talk to people about the RRFM.
Please help us keep the RRFM a 100% FREE and non-commercial event.
Once a month, let's come together and forget about trading,
bartering, and money. Leave the business cards at home and remember
the joy of giving for the sake of giving. Help us keep Dolores Park
clean. If no one takes what you brought, please bring it home with
you. If you like what you just read, get involved!
Come to the RRFM! Bring your own gifts to share! Spread the info, and
get more people involved! The RRFM takes YOU to make it happen.

We have an email list that sends out one email a month to remind you
of the next RRFM. To subscribe, send an email to

# Marine World Demo - Be There!!!!!
Join Local Activists at a Protest at Six Flags Marine World on
Memorial Day Weekend

Leaflets and signs will be provided at the demo?just show up and
bring some friends!

When: Saturday May 27 and Monday May 29 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Where: Six Flags Marine World, Vallejo, by the ticket booths


Why: To educate the public about why Six Flags should not use
animals for entertainment and should close their animal exhibits
and shows.

For more information contact Alfredo Kuba 650-965-8705 or

Six Flags exploits more than 1,500 animals at the amusement park
- ranging from an orca whale and other marine mammals to
elephants, tigers, and reptiles. Recently Six Flags shipped away
an elephant and brought in new elephants. 

We are highlighting that Six Flags should immediately close the
elephant exhibit and stop giving elephant rides and send the
reported seven elephants at the Park to the 2,700-acre Elephant
Sanctuary in Tennessee. 

Six Flags Marine World uses negative reinforcement and weapons
(i.e. bullhook) to inflict pain and fear in order to control
elephants. A bullhook, which resembles a fireplace poker, is
used to "hook" elephants in their most sensitive areas. The park
is also known to chain elephants for prolonged periods and does
not provide adequate space for these animals who in the wild
travel tens of miles a day. This lack of space creates health
problems leading to premature deaths.

Marine World's Record of Animal Abuse:

Violated Federal Laws - In 1998, the federal government cited
the park for animal welfare law violations after a baby sea lion
literally cooked to death when the heat in her enclosure rose to
over 100 degrees.

Forces Dolphins and Whales to Perform "Tricks" - When a dolphin
or whale performs "tricks" at the park, you are watching an
animal who is hungry and performing for food. Dolphins and
whales have faces that appear to be smiling, but they are not
smiling. Tricks performed are unnatural and forced. 

Separates Baby Elephant from Mother - In 1998, the park
"acquired" a 2-year-old elephant from a zoo in Missouri,
callously separating him from his mother. This is emotionally
devastating for both mother and baby; wild male elephants
usually stay with their mothers up to 14 years of age.

# GoaGil memorial meltdown - 2006 
	Saturday, May 27, 2006 - Sunday, May 28, 2006 
10:00 PM
Friends of Gil are thrilled to announce Memorial Meltdown 2006! 

We are very excited to let everyone know that Gil will be returning to California in spring and will have a fresh collection of unreleased tracks for our cosmic dancing pleasure. 

We are preparing to host Gil's traditional marathon set on Memorial Day Weekend 2006. Ariane has her own new music as well, playing as Nimba, which we hope she will play in her opening set. Details for the weekend will be posted at Gil's site:

This gathering is one of the best parties that Gil does all year (we're not bragging, that’s his opinion!), and it's one of the most exciting parties of the season here in California and some would say on the West Coast. 

Please plan to join us at the party and if you can throw down some time and energy, we are excited to invite everyone to help out by volunteering in any way you can. We love the community of freaks that show up each year to make this event happen! 

To volunteer, contact us via email at: goagil_meltdown06 at It's always a really fun experience! 

Prepare yourselves for a wild ride, we haven't danced together for a year and we have every expectation that this will be a Memorial Meltdown to remember!

This Sunday May 28 go with IAC 
to the Rally Against U.S. Bomb Test in 
Nevada Desert!


*The Pentagon is testing its largest conventional bomb ever to prepare for an attack on Iran!*

*It endangers the Western Shoshone people and could spread nuclear  toxins far and wide!**

Get a seat in the van - call 323 936-7266 for more information or to reserve!

On Sunday, May 28 dozens of indigenous, environmental justice and anti-war organizations will converge outside the Nevada Test Site near Mercury Nevada to protest "Divine Strake" - the name given to the scheduled June 2 test of a 700 ton ammonium nitrate-fuel oil emulsion bomb. The explosion will be equivalent to 593 tons of TNT.

The test of the largest conventional weapon ever will take place in the same area where the notorious nuclear tests were carried out in the 1950s and  1960s. The site is upwind of the sacred ground of the Shoshone people, and the huge explosion will unearth radioactive fallout from those early nuclear tests - endangering everyone in the region. Tens of thousands of cases of cancer are attributed by experts to those early nuclear tests.

The Federation of American Scientists says that this test is meant to simulate the detonation of one of a new generation of nuclear weapons called "Bunker-Busters" and to test their ability to burrow deep into the earth and detonate. Top U.S. military planners are now debating the possible use of a nuclear weapon on a nuclear energy plant in Natanz, Iran, and so the timing of this test makes perfect sense.

Join with IAC activists in a delegation to this important demonstration on Sunday May 28th. The van leaves L.A. at 7 am, and returns late Sunday night.

# "The Coming Media Monopoly: Concentration of Press Ownership and Its Effects on Democracy"
A panel discussion presented by the Society of Professional Journalists and Media Alliance

Date: Thursday, June 1, at 7 p.m. - Reception at 6:30 p.m., refreshments and wine
Location: San Francisco LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market St. at Octavia, SF NorthWest Corner
IN SF most Even addresses are on the NORTH or WEST side of the street YO!
Admission: $5 (FREE for members of SPJ and Media Alliance)

The last year has seen dramatic shifts in Bay Area media ownership.

MediaNews, the new owner of the San Jose Mercury News and Contra Costa Times, will soon control nearly two-thirds of local daily newspaper circulation; the two largest weekly newspaper chains, Village Voice and New
Times, merged; and there's been an escalating scramble by several large media companies to control the expanding market for ethnic and foreign-language readers.

Can journalism survive in an era of corporate mergers and acquisitions? What about public service and community needs? What can be done in response to these trends to strengthen the quality of our news media workplaces?

Hear from journalists and media reformers who are responding creatively to the evolving media landscape.

-- LINDA FOLEY, president of The Newspaper Guild, a union representing newspaper workers nationwide. Prior to the sale of the Mercury News and Contra Costa Times, the Guild advanced an ambitious plan to transfer it and other former Knight Ridder papers to a "worker friendly" company.
-- TIM REDMOND, editor of the San Francisco Bay Guardian. The Guardian says it has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars due to unfair competition for ads since the two competing alt-weekly chains merged. How can the little guy compete when the "alternative" press is corporate controlled?
-- STEPHEN BUEL, editor of the East Bay Express. New owner Village Voice Media is the Guardian's corporate nemesis. As a reporter Buel once covered consolidation.
-- SANDY CLOSE, founder and director of New America Media, plus an additional panelist to be announced, will address the effects of consolidation in ethnic and foreign-language media.

-- ERNA SMITH, professor of journalism, San Francisco State University.

Presented by Christine Morrissey
East Bay Animal Advocates

Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, this documentary  
film chronicles day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the  
world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. It shows the  
animal cruelty that occurs every day and it shows what our human  
thirst for cheaper and cheaper products and more and more money does  
to human beings every day.

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

# Wednesday, June 7, 7:30 pm -- Estate Planning Workshop

Got a plan?
You may have seen the ads. They depict tragic scenarios -- mouths clogged 
with peanut butter, cookies with nowhere to be dipped - truly, we are warned of 
the horrors awaiting those with an inadequate dairy beverage supply.

Out here in the real world, though, there are more pressing issues. There are 
questions that might need answers: Who will take care of your kids if you 
can't? How can you protect the people you love? If you can't speak for yourself, 
who will - and will they care what you think about it?

CSC is proud to present Estate Planning for Everyone, a seminar designed to 
answer these and other questions about guardianship, wills, trusts, Advance 
Health Care Directives and more. CSC board member Kathleen Hunt, Esq. is the 
founder of Unique Law, a law practice serving unique individuals and their 
families throughout the greater Bay Area. $15 individual/$25 household. At CSC, 398

# The Endangered Endangered Species Act
Thursday, June 8 7:30-9 pm Free

For over 30 years the Endangered Species Act has been our nation's  
safety net for fish, wildlife, and plants on the brink of extinction.  
But in 2005 the U.S. House of Representatives voted to gut the  
protective provisions of the statute, and several bills to eviscerate  
the Endangered Species Act are being proposed in the U.S. Senate. If  
these bills become law the natural world is likely to become greatly  
impoverished, and as one of the top biodiversity hotspots in the  
country the San Francisco Bay Area has much to loose in the process.  
Join Brent Plater, Bay Area Director for the Center for Biological  
Diversity, as he describes the strength and importance of the  
Endangered Species Act and how current legislation will weaken the  
law, defines where real improvements in the Endangered Species Act  
can be made, and explains what you can do to ensure that protections  
for endangered species remain strong.

Brent Plater works on a variety of endangered species and wildlands  
protection issues throughout the country. He has been the lead  
attorney on several cases brought by the Center, including cases to  
protect the southern resident killer whale, the North American green  
sturgeon, the unarmored threespine stickleback, the California red- 
legged frog and dozens of wild and scenic rivers in the Great Lakes  
region. Brent is a graduate of the University of Michigan's School of  
Natural Resources and Environment, the University of California,  
Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law, and Harvard University's Kennedy  
School of Government.

wait until the mass arives at that intersection, so as to offend as few drivers as possible.
Definitely hold up / wait before blocking major intersections.    BECAUSE
It would be nice to be visible to as many pedestrians and motorists as possible while
offending/ delaying as few motorists as possible.

# July 15 - Day of Action against Climate Change and G8 - EF! Call to Action!
A call to action from Earth First! Climate Caucus and Rising Tide North America
 July 15th 2006 -- Direct Action for Climate Justice

  International Day of Direct Action  
 against Climate Change and the G8 
 Rise Up Against G8 Policies
 Target Fossil Fuel Industries in Your Town or Bioregion

  On July 15th, the "Group of 8" (G8) richest industrialized countries will gather in St. Petersburg, Russia to plot their continued commodification and domination of the planet, this time under the banner of "Energy Security." A leaked G8 "Communique on Energy Security" calls for trillions of dollars in new investments in oil, gas and coal production worldwide, plus wide-scale global expansion of nuclear energy. With runaway climate change* looming just over the horizon, such neoliberal business-as-usual poses a direct threat to the continuation of life on Earth as we know it.  Resistance is self defense. The G8 agenda promotes petroleum-dependent "Energy Security" that pollutes our land and atmosphere, ravages poor and indigenous communities, and scorches the Earth's climate. Their recipe for disaster must be met with our global resistance! 

 July 15th will be an International Day of Action Against Climate Change. As G8 energy ministers promise trillions in new subsidies to the industries destroying our planet and our future, we will take action to shut them down! This is a call for autonomous, decentralized actions appropriate for your town, city, or bioregion. Use this international day of action to support local struggles against oil refineries, gas pipelines, strip mines and coal-fired power plants. Disrupt the financial backers of the fossil fuel industry. Host teach-ins to spread sustainable post-petroleum living skills. Find a weak point in the infrastructure of resource exploitation and throw a literal or symbolic wrench in the works. Visit your local polluters and give 'em hell!

  The July 15th International Day of Action Against Climate Change is being mobilized by Rising Tide North America, a new network initiated in the US by the Earth First! Climate Caucus, with inspiration and support from the UK's vibrant Rising Tide direct action movement for climate justice and against climate change. Rising Tide North America is actively mobilizing July 15th actions in local bioregions, as well as reaching out to environmental justice, climate action and radical sustainability movements in all of the G8 countries plus the Global South. 

 Rising Tide North America is building a large collection of outreach and agit-prop materials that can be used by groups around the continent (and the world) to organize locally. These materials will be downloadable from and from the website of Rising Tide North America (comin' soon). 

 Join the Rising Tide North America network, and tell us about July 15th actions against climate change being planned in your community or bioregion! Contact us at

 For more information and updates about July 15th international actions against climate change, plus news and links about additional global resistance against the 2006 G8 Summit from July 14th to 17th, go to

  *19 of the 20 hottest years on record have occurred since 1980. Islands in the South Pacific are already evacuating due to rising sea levels. Storms and hurricanes are growing more severe.  Polar bears are drowning as their icy habitat breaks apart and drifts out to sea. Greenland and Antarctica are melting. Everyday we spew more greenhouse gases burned from fossil fuels into the atmosphere; everyday we are one step closer to what scientists refer to as "the tipping point," on the verge of catastrophic and irreversible climate chaos.

 The Green Festival is a two-day party with a serious purpose: to accelerate the emergence of a new economic paradigm that is life-affirming and life-restoring. Together we are cultivating a culture of sustainability and social equity that honors our interdependence with all life. Green Festival unites green businesses, social and environmental groups, visionary thinkers and thousands of community members in a lively exchange of ideas, commerce and movement building fun.

Learn: Attend lectures and workshops by thought leaders, business visionaries and community activists shaping the green movement.

Network: Connect with like-minded individuals and organizations who are committed to the possibility of a better world. See Network.Get Involved! Learn about organizations effecting positive and sustainable change in our region, our country, and the around the planet.

Socialize: Have fun interacting with others, for the sheer joy of it. Meet interesting people who share common interests. Spend some time at the food court and listen to local musicians. Parents, find a place to relax in the Family Rest Stop.

Eat Well: Sample delicious, healthy, organic, and sustainable produced food prepared on site. ALL FOODWARE IS BIODEGRADEABLE - COMPOST! WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING YOUR OWN FOODWARE TO THE EVENT.

Greening the Event: We believe in deep sustainability - to achieve intergenerational equity, we must design equity into the present. We try to address all aspects of the event - beginning with our own consciousness and the budgetary process.
