# From KQED’s series Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco
a film screening, conversation, and reception with

associate producer/curator Elizabeth Pepinauthor/curator Lewis Wattsand Fillmore luminaries David Johnson and Reggie Pettus
in conjunction with the exhibition
HARLEM OF THE WEST: THE SAN FRANCISCO FILLMORE JAZZ ERA

San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum Tuesday, July 18 – 7:00 pm In conjunction with its current exhibition, Harlem of the West: The San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Era, San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum (SFPALM) presents a film screening of THE FILLMORE (1999) from KQED’s Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco series, followed by a conversation with exhibition curators Elizabeth Pepin and Lewis Watts. Pepin (who was associate producer of the film) and Watts will recount their years of painstaking work in piecing together the nearly lost history of the Fillmore District, gathering oral histories and rare photographs which informed the film, and which have resulted in both the exhibition and a new book from Chronicle Books. Several notable figures from the era featured in the film and the exhibition, including photographer David Johnson and business owner Reggie Pettus, will also appear at the event and recount their experiences in the Fillmore during its thrilling heyday. Narrated by Ossie Davis, the film features extremely rare archival footage of the Fillmore, interviews with many of those who played pivotal roles in its history, and is filled with the music of the neighborhood from Count Basie to Jefferson Airplane. The evening includes a reception with the participants. This special screening of THE FILLMORE is made possible courtesy of KQED. Admission is free, but space is limited and advance reservations are required. Call 415-255-4800 or email to info@sfpalm.org.

# BrainJams Presents: Rent an Expert 07/19/06 5:30pm - 9:00pm

FREE to attend and network - classes will cost about $5 each
 
Rent an Expert is an event where people who want to help others do,  
or learn something, offer their services to the members of the  
community for a very small fee (average is $5). All the money  
collected will be donated to a charity that is chosen by all  
participants.

Some examples of what might be offered include: how to setup a blog,  
how to get the most from shortcuts in Photoshop, configure a Drupal  
community, redesign a Web site, customize a WordPress theme, create a  
survey, optimize AdSense ads, figure out tagging, how to shoot better  
photographs or just about anything really - even non-technical things  
like how to write a press release. Ideally this will happen in one on  
one exchanges, but it could be a project with a couple of people  
involved that needs the expertise or perhaps a team of people who are  
offering their expertise.

The event is being sponsored by BrainJams, MindJet and RateItAll.

If you would like to share your expertise, please sign up here:  
http://rentanexpert.pbwiki.com/Offer%20your%20expertise

If there is something you would like to learn, please list it here:

Biomimicry, a term first coined in 1997 by biologist Janine Benyus,  
is a term that applies to many inventive new industries. It is the  
art and science of learning and using the "designs" which we see all  
around us, about copying what Nature seems to do very well. Think  
spider silk stronger than steel! What is important for a world  
rapidly depleting its resources, Biomimicry is about using nature's  
"manufacturing ideas" to be more efficient with materials and energy.  
An engineer, Onno Koelman of Pax Scientific, and a teacher of product  
design, Sue Redding of CCA, present some elegantly practical  
applications of Biomimicry.

PROGRAM

Onno Koelman is a design engineer at PAX Scientific and has seen the  
company grow from its five original employees to over twenty-one  
strong. Since the very beginning he has been fascinated by the PAX  
story and the simplicity and elegance of natural design. He has had  
the opportunity to work on numerous products during his tenure. In  
this presentation he will review PAX's story from its earliest  
beginnings,and bring the story up to date by following two industries  
in which PAX is now poised to launch efficient, elegant, and cost- 
effective solutions - all inspired by Nature.

Sue Redding is a Bay Area Designer and Associate Professor of  
Industrial Design at California College of the Arts (CCA) in San  
Francisco. At CCA, Sue teaches sustainable design to Graphic and  
Industrial Designers. A former zookeeper, Sue developed a biology  
curriculum called: "Applied Biology for Designers and Artists." In  
this class designers are taught basic biological principles and how  
to use nature as inspiration in art and design. Redding will present  
Biomimicry examples and show how she presents the information to  
students to help them draw the link between design and biology. Sue  
will also show recent student and faculty work and show how the "New  
Organic Design" is taking hold in the design world.

# Join us to protest corporate undermining of democracy!

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is meeting in SF July 19-23.  Never heard of ALEC?  Read on...

Join us in protest! Press Conference with speakers:

Thursday, July 20, 2 pm

Marriott Hotel 55  Fourth St., downtown SF (Powell St. BART)

Funded primarily by large corporations, industry groups, and conservative foundations, ALEC is one of the nation’s most powerful and least known corporate lobbies.  If you have worked on any issue coming under the broad rubric of the progressive agenda, be it health care, labor rights, resource exploitation, fair trade, privatization of prisons, etc., ALEC has almost certainly introduced legislation in opposition to your purposes.

ALEC’s agenda promotes free trade, minimum government oversight, protection of (corporate) property and minimizing regulation of those in the extractive industry -- letting polluters slither out of responsibility for clean-up, lowering diesel emission standards and energy deregulation.

Focussing on state legislation, ALEC “ghost writes” legislative bills that are in the corporate interest on these issues:  

?  Energy: No special interest has invested more in ALEC than the oil industry; and the political payoff has been spectacular, as ALEC has helped lineup legislators to fight for lower taxes on gasoline and beat back state regulations aimed at curbing the carbon dioxide emissions leading to global warming.

?  Health Care and Human Services: Free Market Health Care Reform: ALEC members have introduced over 100 pieces of legislation taking away or limiting the rights of patients.

? Homeland Security: ALEC has taken aim at eco- and animal rights activists in drafting legislative language putting property damage on a par with terrorist crimes, if those suffering the damage are in the extractive, agricultural or animal experimentation industries. In 2003 ALEC and the U.S. Sportsman's Alliance drafted the Animal and Ecological Terrorism Act and promoted it to legislators in all 50 states.

? Criminal Justice Reform: An ALEC task force that includes as a member the Corrections Corporation of America, the nation's largest private prison company, drafted a "truth in sentencing" bill restricting parole eligibility for prisoners, keeping inmates locked up longer.

?  Labor Rights: ALEC members have introduced legislation ranging from "right to work" bills to privatization and deregulation legislation, based on prototype bills provided by the organization, and have staunchly opposed living wage legislation.

?  Natural Resources:  ALEC’s “Environmental Audit Privilege“ is a measure that relieves companies of legal responsibility for their own pollution, granting special privilege to the polluters who need it least.  ALEC opposes any US action to implement the Kyoto treaty on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

? Biotechnology: ALEC’s prototype bill language would, in effect, disallow communities from passing resolutions against genetically-engineered seeds, crops or animals. A bill currently in the California state legislature, SB 1056, would do just that by making it illegal for counties or cities to pass laws prohibiting GMOs.

Speakers at the ALEC meeting include former Congressman Dick Armey, economist Milton Friedman, and U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. 

ALEC deserves an appropriate activists’ welcome to San Francisco, and we hope you can join us!

# GOOD NEWS! -  Vigils at UCSF resume on July 20th, 4:30 PM
Dear Animal Activists, Companions, Guardians, Lovers, Liberators and Vigilers:
 
GOOD NEWS:  The protest vigils at UCSF resume on the 3rd Thursday of July - July 20th - and thereafter on the 3rd Thursday of the month through the year's end.
 
So, please mark your calendars: 
Vigil at UCSF, 513 Parnassus Ave, San Francisco
Thursday, July 20, 4:30 PM (till 5:30 or 6 PM)

Help us keep the pressure on UCSF to change their vivisection practices - and to let them know that we remain vigilant on behalf of the thousands of animals within their facilities throughout the city.
 
By the way, the most recent Vigil newsletter will be available - with the latest updates on dogs (ab)used in medical experiments at UCSF, as well as a revealing article about the living conditions of monkeys in research labs, written by a veterinarian who once worked in a primate research lab.
 
Hope you can attend.

# July 21: National Cage Free Call-In Day
July 21: National Cage Free Call-In Day to Andronico's Market

Andronico's Market, a grocery chain in the San Francisco Bay Area,
claims that it is  committed to the highest standards of animal
husbandry  and plays an important role in promoting humane business
practices. Yet it still sells eggs from hens confined in battery cages,
despite the recent evidence provided by East Bay Animal Advocates, which
documented abusive conditions at NuCal, an Andronico s brand-name egg
supplier. The undercover footage shows intensive confinement of
chickens inside a series of barren, windowless sheds where thousands of
hens are confined in wire cages so small that they cannot flap their wings. 
For more information about Andronico's support of animal abuse, visit 
http://www.AndronicosAbuse.com 

In order to advance the company s so-called commitment to excellence,
EBAA is asking Andronico's to adopt a cage-free egg policy. Call
Andronico's Market at (510) 649-6759 between 9 AM and 5 PM PST this
Friday. Thank you!

Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales will discuss the President's  
plan for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  A grandson of immigrants  
and the highest ranking law enforcement officer in the country,  
Attorney General Gonzales has a unique understanding of the  
complexities surrounding this debate.  He believes that illegal  
immigration compromises the core American value of fairness, while  
comprehensive immigration reform will restore faith in the rule of  
law and honor our tradition as a nation of immigrants.

The Attorney General will discuss the five objectives of immigration  
reform: securing our borders, creating a temporary worker program,  
making it easier for employers to verify employment eligibility,  
dealing with the millions of illegal immigrants who are already here,  
and honoring the great American tradition of the melting pot.

Prior to his appointment as Attorney General, Gonzales served as  
Counsel to President George W. Bush.  He was appointed as a Justice  
of the Supreme Court of Texas in 1999.  Gonzales is a graduate of  
Rice University and Harvard Law School and served in the United  
States Air Force from 1973-1975.

  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:

Austin Creek State Rec, area, 707-865-2391, 17000  Armstrong
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
River.  Be aware this week end will be a Civil War reenactment at Cassini,
so will be likely crowded with Civil War buffs.

Faerie Ring Campground, 707-869-2746, 16747 Armstrong Woods Rd., $20-25, 30

# I think it's really important we support our wildlife animals too, so I request people Support the "Natural Areas Plan" at this local Rec & Park meeting next week, as people concerned for animals. 

On July 26th at 8:30 am in City Hall, room 416, the Recreation and Park Commission will hold a hearing on a bold and progressive plan to preserve San Francisco's Significant Natural Resource Areas.

During the public comment, which won't be till 9am at the earliest, you merely need to stand in line and say something like:

 "My name is _____.  I live in _____, and I strongly encourage you to adopt the Natural Area Plan without delay.  Many endangered species rely on this critical habitat and as a bay area resident, it's our duty to preserve it and the species that live there."

A little about the plan:  Dogs and their companion humans will be allowed in every acre of the Natural Areas Program, no feral cats will be harmed and the Program will plant over 4,000 trees over the next 20 years, a net increase in trees.  The trees planted will be fire resistant, indigenous species.

IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND, E-MAIL margaret.mcarthur@sfgov.org, Commission Liaison to tell her to forward  your "Support of the Natural Areas Plan" e-mail to the Commission for consideration.

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLAN, E-MAIL christine@animalattorney.com

# FREE Intro | Evolutionary Health and Well Being | Thursday July 27th

http://evolutionaryawareness.com/events/intros/health.php

What: Evolutionary Health and Well Being™
      A Brief Introduction

When:  THURSDAY Thursday July 27th  7:00pm to 9:30pm [RSVP Required]
Where: The Arete Center for Excellence in SF

Why:

Learn How:

•I virtually eliminated HIV from my system in a few months without meds!
•To dissolve beliefs about what is and is not possible  within your body
•Bring evolutionary awareness to health and well being
    +Body: nutrition and fitness
    +Mind: How specifically to harness the power of the mind
    for your healing and how to clear out significant negative
    emotional experiences
•Which non-deity, non sectarian, spiritual practices I used
•Apply to the same technology to any illness or limitation in your thinking
•Find out about the Evolutionary Health and Well Being™ workshop in
September 

All in one brief evening!

What if "incurable" diseases were curable? What if there  were a mental
technology and a integral approach that could unlock that possibility? It is
one thing to believe in the power of the mind...it is another to have the
key and be able to cut copies to give away for access, and to be a living,
breathing example of it with access to the specifics, diligently recorded
over my 5 month journey to heal myself. And heal myself I did.

Think this is impossible? Think again.

# San Francisco Peak Oil Hearing July 28
SFhearings @ sfbayoil.org

Bay Area activists and concerned citizens are encouraged to mark Friday, July 28, on their calendars. On that afternoon at City Hall in San Francisco, the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) will be holding the first in a series of hearings on Peak Oil, focusing on its potential ramifications for San Francisco (and the Bay Area), how city government is equipped, or more correctly "not equipped," to deal with an energy famine, and what the local government might do to mitigate the catastrophe Peak Oil will bring to our local economy, infrastructure, and personal lives. This hearing will provide an opportunity for education of the local population regarding an issue with which so many are completely unfamiliar, despite its urgency.

On April 11, 2006, San Francisco made history. By a vote of 10-0 by the Board of Supervisors, our local "City Council," it became the first major American city to pass a resolution acknowledging the Peak Oil phenomenon. This action was taken after a group of local citizens from a grassroots organization, San Francisco Oil Awareness, contacted and met with their representatives, voicing their concerns about the city's future. The resolution, sponsored by Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi, Jake McGoldrick, Sophie Maxwell, and Chris Daly, called for Mayor Gavin Newsom and the Board of Supervisors to acknowledge Peak Oil and to provide funding for an assessment which would determine the effects of petroleum depletion upon our way of life.

This proposed assessment is a major undertaking, and the suggestions such a study would determine necessary to mitigate effects from Peak Oil could not realistically be tackled in the political realm without a mandate of the citizenry of San Francisco. Unfortunately, even in progressive San Francisco, a majority of our population do not know about nor understand what Peak Oil is, as major media are almost always silent about the topic, or when discussing it they are rife with misinformation. But our region is special in its history of activism and consciousness, and by harnessing these historical assets, San Francisco is poised to seize this moment and avoid the worst case scenario that could befall us as petroleum-based fossil fuel energy becomes increasingly difficult to extract from the earth and prohibitively expensive to acquire. San Francisco must take this occasion to begin to "power down."

With your help, July 28 could provide the needed impetus to educate the citizenry of San Francisco and the Bay Area about these potential disruptions. On that afternoon at 1:30, a press conference will be held on the steps of City Hall in conjunction with San Francisco Oil Awareness and other concerned organizations, and it will be very important to have a large turnout of concerned citizens attending the press conference as well as the hearing on Peak Oil that will commence in City Hall at 2:00 p.m. that day. Please make an effort to attend these important events, and please encourage your friends to learn about Peak Oil and join you in voicing concerns on July 28. It is not hyperbole that our collective lives may depend upon it.

The hearing on July 28, as presently envisioned, will include an introductory message about Peak Oil, a presentation by author, lecturer, and professor Richard Heinberg of New College in Santa Rosa, presentations by the department of the environment, and a discussion about municipal response from Dave Room of Energy Preparedness. There will be additional input encouraged from the general public, which is limited to 3 minutes per person.

Please attend the press conference and hearing that day, and encourage other concerned citizens, as well as your friends and associates, to join you.

# 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.

#  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


# 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

# September  8 - 21 Announcing Camp Democracy
Announcing Camp Democracy
Cindy Sheehan to Move Camp to National Mall
Cindy Sheehan and activists in the growing peace movement plan to 
move Camp Casey to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., September 
8 - 21. The camp on the Mall will carry the name Camp Democracy at 
Fort Fed Up. Organizers intend the camp to bring together peace 
activists with activists for social justice, united in demanding a 
shift of public resources from war to the needs of people. 
Participants will lobby Congress to end all funding of the 
occupation of Iraq, and will demand that Congress hold the Bush 
Administration accountable for the falsehoods that launched the war 
and the abuses of power here at home that have accompanied it. Camp 
Democracy is launching an outreach effort to include organizations 
in the planning of the camp's activities, which are all in the 
initial stages. Organizations already on board are listed on the 
website:
http://campdemocracy.org
Participating organizations and guest experts and celebrities will 
provide workshops and training sessions on a wide range of issues, 
as well as on communications, voter registration, nonviolent civil 
disobedience, lobbying, organizing, media production, and 
performance arts. Congress Members and congressional candidates will 
take part. Local elected officials will instruct attendees on 
participation in local government. Musicians will perform concerts. 
New films will be shown on a large screen. Participants will acquire 
useful skills while demanding fundamental change. 
Individuals can sign up and plan to come:
http://campdemocracy.org/user/2
And volunteer to help:
http://campdemocracy.org/about
Organizations, large and small, can sign up to participate:
http://campdemocracy.org/node/3
Organizations, trainers, speakers, educators, and performers should 
propose activities that they believe would benefit thousands of 
citizens who want to work for change:
http://campdemocracy.org/node/4 
Internet activists, and anyone with a blog or a website, can help by 
posting this information and link to the website using this link:

http://campdemocracy.org/

A camp for peace, democracy, and the restoration of the rule of law. 
Camp Casey will move from Crawford, Texas, to Washington, D.C., to 
create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but also on 
righting injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush 
Administration and Congress. Tents will provide activist activities, 
trainings, workshops, and entertainment on these themes: War/ Peace/ 
Nonviolence | The Constitution/ Accountability/ Censure/ Impeachment 
| Poverty/ Katrina/ Immigration/ Labor | Environment/ Health Care/ 
Education

# 9/11 CITIZENS Court in Wash DC on September 11 - 18
This is from a founder of Veterans for 9/11 Truth  http://www.V911T.org
This Sept 11, 2006 a new era will dawn on America. On that day the 
people will convene and move through the legal recourse needed to 
redress the government. At no other time in our nations history has so 
important a moment drawn near. As the war of lies passes the $500 
Billion debt mark and 3000 US dead along with 100,000's in the nation 
we "saved", as freedom and liberty has been sold out to a federal 
police force, as all Americans have been affected by corporate and 
limited liability governments and municipal codes, time has come for 
the change
