An armed populace is a deterrent against government repression.

Or do you trust your government?

You wanna get raped? 
Leave your door unlocked, advertise you are alone and defenseless.

You want to get mugged?  
Wear expensive clothes and jewlerey and stagger around drunk in a bad part of town.

You want get taken away in the middle of the night? 
Live in a country with sociopath pRedsident and let them take away your right to bear arms.

There is a reason we have a 2nd ammendment in the USA allowing us to defend ourselves in our own homes.
We knew about tyranny.  Armed citizens can resist repressive governments.
The Bush Regime is a repressive coup that has illegally hijacked the US Govt. BEWARE

Are you scared of BushHitler? Would you be more scared if no one could stop use self defense?

# Playa Painting this Friday morning
Friday 6/30 I’ll be on the beach making a new piece. Summertime San Francisco weather is a mixed bag. From sunny and hot to cold and foggy all within the same day, sometimes the same hour! I tried getting out earlier this week to find some pretty severe conditions. Buuut the tides are favorable until friday, so come check it out if you can make it!
Designs take about 2 hours to complete and last from 10 minutes to 2 hours once finished depending on the tides and the design placement. Volunteers are welcome but not always needed. I usually have a few spare rakes for folks who want to help out but I can’t guarantee that.
Tuesday: work starts at 6:30 am
Wednesday: we start at 7:15am
Thursday: work begins at 8am
North end of Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Go to the Cliff House and look south at the beach and there I should be.
Here’s a nice slideshow of my best images:
This page has the complete line of postcards, they’re cheap and fun to send to your conservative friends back home.

# Fri. June 30  12 pm        Breasts Not Bombs Protest at Bechtel - SF

Sherry Glaser and her bosom buddies will be at Bechtel on Friday at noon.  
Men are welcome to join them.

Bechtel, 50 Beal Street (BETWEEN MISSION & MARKET), San Francisco.
Contact: Sherry Glaser at

Here is your opportunity for direct action toward one of the major profiteers 
of the war on Iraq. We will use Bechtel as just a sample of the 
Multi-nationals that are making money off death, destruction and Chaos. Don't you think 
it's interesting that Bin Laden Construction out of Saudi Arabia was a major 
shareholder at Bechtel. Come to the rally and find out other disturbing facts 
about those who love the idea of permanent war. Their jobs depend on it. Let's 
tell Bechtel to invest in life not death!  That would be the decent thing to do.

Sherry was arrested at a demo in Sacramento last November but the charges 
were dropped.  Please see Cops bust topless women video at

reporting period, and a strong financial showing to

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

# Critical Mass - Friday 6/30 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.

#  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

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

Penny Slinger's collages! Art opening featuring the first West Coast  
show of this masterful, beautiful work. Meet Penny (creator of the

was published in 1979. For the last twelve years she has been living  
at the Goddess Temple, sanctuary and multi-media studios, in the

# Act Against Torture on the 4th of July!!
Friends & fellow-activists,

Thanks to all who responded to our "coming soon" announcement about the 4th of July action we're planning.  Even if you already wrote to express interest in the action ...

PLEASE RSVP if you plan to participate!  You can e-mail us at to let us know:

  (a) that you're going to participate
  (b) how many others (who are not RSVP-ing themselves) will participate with you
  (c) whether you'd prefer to meet in the East Bay (definite); or in San Francisco (tentative, depending on # of confirmed participants)

East Bay meeting place and time [confirmed]
Ashby BART at 6:00 pm on Tues. July 4th
From there, we'll proceed (with costumes and materials) to as many East Bay sites as we can cover with the number of people who show up.

San Francisco meeting place and time [tentative]
A San Francisco meet-up is possible, but will depend on whether we hear from enough people who want to participate on the west side of the Bay Bridge.  Please see the "RSVP" note, above, and let us know if you're up for acting against torture on July 4th in San Francisco.  If we get enough interest, we'll send another e-mail giving a meeting place & time in SF. We hope that West Bay residents will join us in Berkeley / Oakland if it turns out that we haven't got the numbers to make an SF venue possible this time around.

Recap of what we're doing
From our meeting point(s), we'll form teams to visit multiple picnic / bbq / fireworks venues in the Bay Area.  Some of us in each of multiple groups will be in "costume" as detainees (e.g., orange jump suits, hoods); while others hand out information and collect pledges for the Declaration of Peace (a pledge to participate in non-violent action if the government fails to "establish a comprehensive plan to end the US war in Iraq" by Sept 21st; more info on their site, ).  Each team will be 'self documenting' -- though we don't plan to shy away from media covering the Fourth of July celebrations, we're also going to create our own press / record for this

See you on the 4th!!!

BILL MOLLISON is a practical visionary. For three decades he has traveled

agriculture that he devised. Permaculture weaves together microclimate,
annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human
needs into intricately connected productive communities. Mollison has proved
that even in the most difficult conditions permaculture empowers people to
turn wastelands into food forests.

IN THE TROPICS: Mollison introduces the basic principles, and shows results
in Australia, India, and Zimbabwe.

ARID LANDS: Reversing desertification in Arizona, Botswana and Australia.

    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.

    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 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... **

# FREE Intro | Personal Evolution & NLP | July 11th

"I could rave about how Jason's guidance has changed my life [...] this
pales in comparison to how Jason's IDEAs have changed the lives of countless
people around me -- both directly through the amazing training he did with
my staff, and indirectly in the hundreds of students we influence as
instructors and coaches [...] I can confidently credit much of the success
of my growing company (16.2% growth last year) to the brilliant education
Jason provided. I can sum up his work as the MasterCard commercial might,

decisions, and beliefs that were formed around  events? Have you ever wanted

access to your true core--the  best within you? Your deepest self?

That is what is available to you through this event. Not just the "what",
but the specific "how".

# 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.

  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:

# Critical Mass - Friday 7/28 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.

#  07/30-DORE "Up Your" ALLEY FAIR

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

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

# SRL August 11 in San Jose
Anyone heard of Survival Research Labratories?  These guys are a  
hoot, and they are coming to town!

If you've ever seen Seamen at BM, SRL is the authentic article.   
These guys regularly get kicked out of town the night before the  
event by the fire marshals.  Of course, that's not going to happen on  
the 11th, but the show will not be something to be missed.  All the  
drama of a war zone with the choreography of Cirque Du Soleil.  But  
bring your earplugs!  A gas mask isn't a bad idea to pack if you have  
one handy, but it's unlikely you would need it these days.

The last show I saw of theirs was legend, out on pier 70 in SF about  
a decade ago. -Brian
