I would like 4 or 5 foot lengths of bamboo to stick in trash cans at festivals: 
So I can designate recycling containers
bottle atop the glass recycle,
can atop the aluminum, plastic over plastic.
So that folks can recycle without reading.

14 Characteristics of Fascism

  "Nothing is more despicable than respect based on fear."
-- Albert Camus

"Authority without wisdom
is like a heavy axe without an edge,
fitter to bruise than polish."
-- Anne Bradstreet

"The issues can be stated very briefly:
Who will be controlled?
Who will exercise control?
What type of control will be exercised?
Most important of all, toward what end or purpose,
or in the pursuit of what value, will control be exercised?"
-- Carl Rogers


10) Signaling a welcome change at the top, managers of the California
Department of Forestry (CDF) traveled from Sacramento to Jackson Forest in
late June. They came expressly to tour the forest with Kathy Bailey of the
Sierra Club and me. We spent most of the day walking and talking along a
route that I had chosen, one that showed beautiful redwood groves
undisturbed for eighty years, a Pomo Indian campsite, remains of historic
railroad trestles, and the aftermath of clearcut logging operations. At the
end of the day, the senior CDF managers emphasized their understanding that
the current times called for a new mission for Jackson State Forest, one
that emphasizes the potential of Jackson to become a world-class research
forest and one that recognizes the value of preserving and restoring the
forest. This is a fresh breeze, indeed, and very welcome. The June meeting
had its origins in an earlier invitation from Ruben Grijalva, the newly
appointed Director of the California Department of Forestry, to meet with
him and his staff in Sacramento. I approached the meeting with hope, but
also with fear that CDF would maintain the stonewall that has prevented all
progress on Jackson Forest reform for six years. To my surprise and delight,
Mr. Grijalva quickly expressed a willingness to explore new solutions and
seek consensus. Early in the meeting, I said that to get an acceptable
solution, CDF must be willing to fund its unrelated forestry programs from
sources other than cutting trees in Jackson Forest. In the 1990s, timber
revenues from Jackson funded almost one-third of the total budget of CDF.
The drive for timber revenue led to the neglect of other forest values and,
ultimately, to the formation of the Campaign. Until this point, CDF had
steadfastly refused to consider lowering its timber harvests to promote
other forest values. Jackson revenue was viewed as too important to
sacrifice. Mr. Grijalva replied that he had already publicly stated that he
was willing to fund the department's forestry programs from alternative
sources, and that he meant it. Suddenly, the discussion moved beyond fixed
positions to seeking mutually acceptable solutions.

# Oregon Country Fair July 7,8,9 11am-7pm

SF Mime Troupe presents: 

Imagine a nation where religious fervor runs hot, and faith rhetoric runs hotter. Where belief has replaced reason, and where Liberty and Justice play a broken second fiddle to an all powerful, omniscient and omnipresent military-industrial God complex. That's the nation Reverend C.B. De Love wants. And that's also the nation where shy civics teacher Angela Franklin finds herself. But in her struggle to stop the coming Theocracy will Angela go too far? In her zeal to destroy the opiate of the masses, will she make a religion out of her anti-religion, and join the ranks of the Gangsters for God? Or will she see the folly of blind faith in anything - even the Constitution - and return to Reason?

Keynote Speaker
Carol Queen 
If You Want Something Done Right, Do it Yourself: 
Why Masturbation is a Woman's Best Friend

Self-pleasure is the cornerstone of erotic pleasure, but too many women still think only sex with a partner is "real" and legitimate. Join Carol to find out why it's actually the best thing for you... alone OR in a relationship. From learning orgasm to incorporating it into exhibitionistic teaching with your lover, knowing your way around your own body is healthy, hot, centering, and very pleasurable.

When Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Carol Queen earned her doctorate in 1998 from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, she was already an award-winning author, widely anthologized and well published in magazines and periodicals. Carol writes a regular column on the Good Vibrations web site and has been featured in major national publications including Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Esquire, and Playboy. An expert on a multitude of sex-related topics, she's has appeared on numerous television shows and has been an invited lecturer across the country. Dr. Queen is the author of Exhibitionism for the Shy, Real Live Nude Girl, and The Leather Daddy and the Femme, and has co-edited eight other books. She's the founding director of the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco.

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!

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... **

# Ask a Scientist - Gray Whale Mystery 

Mon, Jul 10 7:00 - 9:00 pm  Free 

Ask a Scientist and KQED present: Gray Whale Mystery

Once hunted to the brink of extinction, the gray whale has made an 
amazing comeback in the last 80 years. But in 1999 and 2000, these 
unique creatures suddenly began to disappear by the thousands -- 
losing an entire one-third of their population. In the "Gray Whale 
Obstacle Course" episode of KQED's "Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean 
Adventures" (airing July 19th), Cousteau and his team look for 
answers as they travel the friendly giants' long migration route 
through polluted waters fraught with hungry killer whales and 
dangerous military sonar, all the way to their diminishing Arctic 
feeding grounds. Come get a sneak preview of this thought-provoking 
episode and learn more about these fascinating animals at tonight's 
talk, co-presented with KQED.

Speaker: Shari Bookstaff, Professor of Biology at Skyline College and 
President of the American Cetacean Society

About the Series: Ask a Scientist is an informative, entertaining, 
science lecture series, held at a San Francisco cafe. Each event 
features a speaker on a current topic, a short presentation, and the 
opportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keeping 
you up at night. No tests, grades, or pressurehellipjust food, 
drinks, socializing, and conversation about the universe's most 
fascinating mysteries!

# The 711 Club Memorial Flashmob: 7:11 on 7/11 in front of the 7-11 at 711 
Tue, Jul 11      7:11pm-8:00pm      Free 
What better way to remember the 711 than to spend 7/11 at the 7-11?

What: Flashmob to memorialize the 711 Club
Where: 711 Market Street
When: 7:11 PM on July 7.

Do you remember the 711 Club at 711 Market street, the charming 
little dive behind the carved dutch doors on Market near 3rd? Of 
course you do. How could you forget any bar with a glittery ceiling, 
fuzzy wallpaper, and that carving on the back wall.

Did you shed a tear when it suddenly closed in 2003? Did you think 
it was a joke when the 7-11 logos went up? Did you wonder if Martin 
finally won the Lotto?

Do you still miss the place?

If so, than this is for you. On TUESDAY, JULY 11TH, at 
approximately 7:11 PM, it will be time to remember the 711 Club - the 
only speakeasy turned saloon turned dive bar turned ironic 
convenience store in the lower 48.

And is there a better place to remember the 711 at 7:11 on 7/11 than 
in front of the 7-11?

No. There isn't.

We're going to do this flashmob style. Please arrive before 7:11, 
and bring a beverage of your choice (bonus points for Kostritzer). 
Loiter around the corner of 3rd and market until the time is right.

At exactly 7:11 pm, you should walk to the front of the 7-11 (at 711 
Market St, natch), open your beverage and spill some on the ground. 
Then you are encouraged to loiter, beverage in hand, in front of the 
7-11 reminiscing.

Choosing Life:   Exploring Nutrition as the Gateway to Immortality
featuring Wayne Chandler M.S., C.P.H., S.C.E
Date:           Saturday, July 15 & 22, 2006 
Time:            July 15, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM  &   July 22, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM 
Location:    The Dream Space  7433 Hillmont Dr. Oakland, CA
Fee:              $60.00 ($20 per session) Early registration*    $65.00 at the door
This Three Part lecture series will take participants through a journey of physical rejuvenation and re-youthing experience which is the destiny and the wave of the human race. The information presented is the cutting edge and constitutes the latest research in bio-chemical, core energetics, and Mind-Body-Spirit medicine. These segments will enlighten participants to the avenues one may take to regenerate systemically the human body.

Part One will explore the various reasons why the human body degenerates though it is primed and genetically coded to live forever. Immortality is the birthright of every human being, yet an array of cultural/social mechanisms prevents the human entity from living past the average age of 65-75 years...the last 25 of those years being absorbed in physical decay, pain, and emotional misery.
Part Two will examine the various foods, supplements, and elixirs that reinstate the overall vitality of the human body. Simple trace minerals such as zinc play an overwhelmingly essential role in all generative functions...physical and energetic.
Part Three: Immortal Energetics will discuss the relationship of the organs in the human body as they relate to our overall mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. This presentation will reveal specific techniques and practices one can do to reestablish the keys to health and longevity by manipulating the death codes programmed into the human body and replacing them with the light codes of vitality and long life.

BIO - Wayne B. Chandler, M.S., C.P.H., S.C.E. is the author of Ancient Future: The Teachings and Prophetic Wisdom of the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt and the forth coming book The Brighter Side of Darkness: A Light Warriors Guide to Inner Alchemy and Spiritual Revelation. He is a motivational speaker and workshop coordinator and has lectured around the globe. Chandler is certified in the techniques of Core Energetics; as instructed by Mantak Chia, Choa Kok Sui and Minke DeVoss. He is also certified in Tui Na, one of the pillars of Chinese Medical Science.

# 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.

In December 2005, a group of twenty four friends, following the
nonviolent tradition of Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker walked to
Guantanamo to visit the prisoners, calling themselves "Witness Against
Torture." When they returned, they launched the "Campaign to Shut Down
Guantanamo," which consists of public education and community
outreach, networking and resource sharing, and acts of nonviolent
civil disobedience to draw attention to the plight of prisoners in
Guantanamo, and victims of the war on terrorism everywhere. Frida Berrigan frida.berrigan @

community for a very small fee (average is $5). All the money  
collected will be donated to a charity that is chosen by all  

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.

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.


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.

  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.

# Rail Against Privatization
Wednesday, July 26 7:00 pm
$5 donations are accepted
Presented by Steve Zeltzer

This film from South Africa shows the struggle for decent housing and  
jobs in a township in Durban. The residents begin to struggle for  
justice and are met with repression.

This film tells the story of the effort to fight the privatization of  
British Rail which was carried out under former Prime Minister  
Thatcher and now continued by the "New Labor" Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Dozens of Colombian trade unionists, in order to escape death  
sentences, were forced to come to the U.S. This film by Julie  
Rosenberg tells the story of Hector Girado and his visit to the U.S.

This film by Peter Burton explores the view of the class struggle in  
the U.S. from a Scottish perspective.

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

# San Francisco Peak Oil Hearing July 28
SFhearings @

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.

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

#  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

# 9/11 CITIZENS Court in Wash DC on September 11 - 18
This is from a founder of Veterans for 9/11 Truth
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
