reading & book signing for "Doing Nothing: A History of Loafers, Loungers, Slackers, and Bums in America" 
Tuesday, June 27th at 7 pm 
at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco) 

Couch potatoes, goof-offs, freeloaders, laggards, idlers, and shirkers: ever since the Industrial Revolution, when the work ethic was formed, there has been a chorus of individuals ridiculing the pretensions of hardworking respectability. "Doing Nothing: A History of Loafers, Loungers, Slackers, and Bums in America" is Tim Lutz's story of the layabouts who stretch and yawn while the rest of society worries and sweats. 

Tom Lutz’s previous books include "Crying: A Natural and Cultural History of Tears," "American Nervousness," and "1903: An Anecdotal History." 

Author events are free and are sponsored by The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco). For further information, call 415-863-8688 or visit www.booksmith.com If you can't attend this event and would like to order a signed copy of the author's new book, please email or phone our store.

important.  A $100 donation is suggested -- no one

# Critical Mass - Friday 6/30 6pm Justin Herman Plaza: Market @ Embarcadero
http://critical-mass.org 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.

flowers which have started producing seeds.

Donations are welcomed.

#  July 2006 is the month to Bring the War Home to cities across the
nation with Direct Action and Civil Disobedience to shut down all metropolitan
areas. Then organizers from around the world will converge on DC August 
10th through the 14th to confront the true war machine.

SHUT DOWN DC: August 10th through 14th, 2006. There will be massive
decentralized direct action against all government and corporate
entities.

The vast majority of government and corporate war profiteers are based 
in DC, and its time they experience war first hand. Let's bring the war to
their homes, their offices, their parties and everywhere else they go.

As long as there is a war abroad, we must also have a war at home. With 
the Iran war looming, the Iraq war lingering, and dozens of other wars
raging, it is long past time to bring the war home.

With thousands expected to descend on our fair city, mass housing, free
vegan food, and a convergence space will all be available. Mark your
calendars, tell your friends, plan to come to DC August 10th through
14th, 2006.

More information and details will be coming, and our website should be
up soon. Keep checking back for more details. In the meantime email

# Reclaim Our Fate! Climate, Energy and Global Justice * Sun July 9: DC teach-in / concert / spokescouncil!
Reclaim Our Fate!
  Climate, Energy, and Global Justice  A FREE half-day Teach-In, followed by Spokescouncil and Benefit Concert   

    Join activists speaking out on the Climate Change and Energy Crises! As Global Justice movements plan worldwide protests opposing the July 15-17 2006 G8 Summit in Russia -- where world leaders including President Bush will meet for "energy security" consultations that threaten the Earth and people everywhere with economic and ecological disaster -- we gather to reclaim the debate & our fate from corporate domination by the Group of 8!   SUNDAY July 9th, noon-midnight (doors open 11:30 am -- see schedule below) 
    at the People's Media Center and AlFishawy Cafe  4132 Georgia Avenue, NW Washington DC (between Upshur & Taylor, 3 blocks North of Petworth metro Station on the green line, Bus #70/71/62/64)      12 to 1:45 Climate Science 101 and Direct Action Strategies to stop Climate Catastrophe. Presented by Climate Crisis Coalition and Rising Tide North America

  2 to 3:45 The Mountain Justice Movement to Save Appalachia's Mountains from Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining -- And Energy Alternatives that Don't Suck! Presented by Mountain Justice Summer and Energy Justice Network 

    4 to 5:45 Oil and Empire, Bombs and Poverty ... For Global Justice, Against War: Linking Our Movements, Before It's Too Late! Discussion facilitated by local DC anti-war and global justice activists 
     PLUS trainings (Legal, Medical, Tactics) for affinity groups and individuals participating in non-violent direct action with the July 10-16 DC Gr8 Week of Resistance to the G8's Great Greed!

  Teach-In organized by Rising Tide North America and Mobilization for Global Justice , Sponsored by Reclaim the Commons  Visit www.rtc.revolt.org and e-mail   reclaimthecommons@gmail.com for more details  *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    AND AFTER THE TEACH-IN!! 6-midnight ** $5 vegetarian dinner-n-drink ( No Alcohol )   
  6:30 pm**Action Spokescouncil meeting for DC Week of Resistance to the G8 ** 8-midnight **Benefit concert for "Green Scare" imprisoned environmental activists and for the July 15th International Day of Direct Action against Climate Change ** OPEN TO ALL! With Mosquito Death Squadon (art/experimental rock) and more bands TBA   $5 donation suggested-no one turned away.

  ** The Green Scare is a federal round-up environmental and animal rights activists, which The National Lawyer's Guild among others has condemned as  unconstitutional. Officially called "Operation Backfire", this wide-scale orchestrated investigation of activists uses paid informants, warrantless spying on a range of organizations, and threats of severe sanctions to leverage fear of conviction under unprecedented penalties for property crimes. 888-NLG-ECOLAW is a hotline established to support these activists. Visit www.greenscare.org for more info on solidarity with Green Scare victims. **    
  ** The G8, or Group of 8, is the seven wealthiest industrialized nations in the world plus Russia. They officially meet once a year to strategize policies and plan their joint domination of the world, and in recent years have been confronted by intense popular demonstrations wherever they go. The political heads of these countries -- the U.S., Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan -- are pushing the agenda of corporate globalization at the cost of the welfare of the people they claim to represent. We take to the streets when the G8 meets to reject their worldview of profit at any cost, and to reclaim our commons of autonomous political space. Authentic democracy or corporate oligarchy? The choice is ours... **

# 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 http://www.reclaimthecommons.net 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 efclimatecaucus@wildmail.com.

  *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.

  Camping  for Bohemian  Grove Convergence 2006

  Dear  Greens and other friends -

We hope you are planning to attend the July 22 protest and Green
Convergence at Bohemian Grove in Sonoma County.  You will help shine
a  light on what has been called the greatest men's  party on earth; one
made up of many of the men who profit most from oil and the war to get
it.  And others who gain vast wealth from cheap labor, keeping it "illegal"
or far off shore.  And, of course, their political enablers.

The protest will take place starting at 1 P.M. in the Sonoma County town of
Monte Rio, at the parking lot across from the Rio theater,  at  the
intersection of  Bohemian Highway and Hwy.  116.  There will be a short
rally at the parking lot, followed by a march to the Bohemian Grove gate at
2 P.M..  Local organizers are planning a Saturday evening dinner and event
in Monte Rio starting at about 4 P.M. to finish out the day of protest and
community building.

This is a summer playground, and we hope you and your family, friends and
allies will come and make a week-end out of it.  Below are contacts for a
number of the campgrounds and resorts in the vicinity.  We will try to have
a group camp space set aside, but that has not been confirmed as of this
writing, and it should not be depended upon.

Most of these venues are first cone, first served, though it never hurts to
call and see if you can reserve a site:

Woods  Rd.,  $10, 24  units

Cassini  Family  Campground,  800-451-8400, 22855 Moscow Rd.,
Duncan's  Mills, (near Monte Rio) $22-29, huge, along the Russian

so will be likely crowded with Civil War buffs.

# Critical Mass - Friday 7/28 6pm Justin Herman Plaza: Market @ Embarcadero
http://critical-mass.org 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.

#  07/30-DORE "Up Your" ALLEY FAIR http://www.FolsomStreetFair.com



August 2006

#  August 10th through 14
July 2006 is the month to Bring the War Home to cities across the
nation with Direct Action and Civil Disobedience to shut down all metropolitan
areas. Then organizers from around the world will converge on DC August 
10th through the 14th to confront the true war machine.

SHUT DOWN DC: August 10th through 14th, 2006. There will be massive
decentralized direct action against all government and corporate
entities.

The vast majority of government and corporate war profiteers are based 
in DC, and its time they experience war first hand. Let's bring the war to
their homes, their offices, their parties and everywhere else they go.

As long as there is a war abroad, we must also have a war at home. With 
the Iran war looming, the Iraq war lingering, and dozens of other wars
raging, it is long past time to bring the war home.

With thousands expected to descend on our fair city, mass housing, free
vegan food, and a convergence space will all be available. Mark your
calendars, tell your friends, plan to come to DC August 10th through
14th, 2006.

More information and details will be coming, and our website should be
up soon. Keep checking back for more details. In the meantime email 
bringthewarhome06 @ hotmail.com
