# 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

911 - inside job.   Demand investigation! - - - - -  - -


# Film- 9/11 Guilt: The Proof is in Your Hands September 12, 2006 6:30 pm

Doors open at 6:00 each night, trailers, previews and shorts start at

In August 2005 Jim Hoffman and Don Paul recorded presentations for the
second convening of the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on the Crimes
of September 11, 2001. Later they spent many hours with videographer
Celestine Star adding photographs, footage, and other graphics to
document their assertions. The result is 58 minutes of compelling
evidence and analyses.

The Fourth World War

$5 Donation, (No one turned away for lack of funds)

(near folsom/7th across from Brainwash) 


From the front-lines of conflicts in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Palestine, Korea, 'the North' from Seattle to Genova, and the 'War on Terror' in New York, Afghanistan, and Iraq. It is the story of men and women around the world who resist being annihilated in this war.

While our airwaves are crowded with talk of a new world war, narrated by generals and filmed from the noses of bombs, the human story of this global conflict remains untold. "The Fourth World War" brings together the images and voices of the war on the ground. It is a story of a war without end and of those who resist.

Bringing Black Rock City Sensibilities Home // 9.13.06 
 Wednesday, September 13 6:00 PM
What a great year out on the playa! Damn, it went fast and we have lots of ideas brewing to take out to the desert next year. But for now...coming back to the default world can be a little tough, as people we see outside walk around with their eyes firmly fixed on the sidewalk and grim looks on their faces. Poor souls, they must not have been to Burning Man this year! 
Stop by for some decompressing at the Be Nice Party this Wednesday September 13 from 6 pm to 11 pm. Our vision is to bring Black Rock Sensibilities Home and keep the Burning Man spirit and lifestyle alive year round! We would love to have you join us: the event is free, it's early, it's relaxing and enjoyable. 
Come Burners and non-Burners alike; let's have a drink together!

9/13: The End of Suburbia (oakland downtown)
 Wednesday, September 13 at 7:30 pm 
 Humanist Hall  390 27th Street 
midtown Oakland, between Telegraph and Broadway, below Pill Hill 

Film Series on Petro Collapse Inspired by Jan Lundberg 
Culture Change: 

The subtitle of this documentary is: “Oil Depletion and the Collapse of The American Dream.” That says it all! With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, this film 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. As the film explains, scientists and some policy makers are arguing that world peak oil and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now. The consequences of inaction in the face of this global crisis are enormous. What does peak oil 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? Are today’s suburbs destined to become the slums of tomorrow? And what can be done NOW, individually and collectively, to avoid the end of suburbia? 

Before and after the film, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House 
$5 donations are accepted

Abundance League - Thursday September 14

Thursday, September 14 at 6pm.

We love the Abundance League because it reminds us of our power, magic,
and humanity.  Our lives are meaningful, some of us would even say
regardless of our access to consumer products.  Because we choose to live this
way and we define ourselves in relationship to each other, not to whom we vote
for or to how much crap we can buy.

Thanks again for being part of this wealthy community.

We are very excited about the dynamic created by our new format and so we
want to continue to use it.  We encourage you to come prepared to
speak about your: -passions -needs -and gifts

Every Abundance Leaguer will get a chance to talk about what moves them,
what they need, and what they have to offer to this exceptional community.

If you feel called to help out by taking notes at the next gathering,
please do let us know.  We received very positive feedback about our
note sharing experiment last month and would like to continue it, but
we could use your help.

See you Thursday! Abundantly yours, Neal White Arrow & Maritza

When:   Thursday, September 14,6pm-10pm
Where:  FAS Research headquarters (Doris and Harald's place)
   1168 Folsom Street - Unit # 304

If possible, please bring some food or drink so that the potluck is
representative of our abundant spirit.

September 16, 2006 

The Seventh Annual Expo for the Artist & Musician
11 am-6 pm at SomArts Cultural Center
934 Brannan St @ 8th St. SF, CA

The Expo is an all-day extravanganza featuring more than 100 Bay Area arts organizations, free workshops, pefomances, and hundreds of local artists and musicians. Attendees can browse tables staffed by local galleries, nonprofits, collectives and small businesses; present their portfolios; and join in workshops on grant proposals, censorship, arts marketing, underground art history, making a demo tape and more. 

WHAT IS THE EXPO?               back to the top 
The Expo is the Bay Area's only grassroots connection fair for independent arts, music & culture -- an all-day extravaganza featuring more than 120 Bay Area arts organizations, free workshops, children's activities, our new Community Arts Showcase featuring local music and performance, and hundreds of local artists and musicians. 
Attendees can meet a dazzling variety of local galleries, nonprofits, collectives and small businesses; present portfolios and music demos; and participate in workshops, seminars and skillshares on arts skills and methods, business and promotions, legal issues, community-building and more! 
In 2005, after five years at Cellspace in the Mission, the Expo moved to the SomArts Cultural Center in the South of Market district. 
It was the biggest, most colorful and most exciting Expo to date, with 124 arts groups exhibiting (a record number that included new groups from outside the Bay Area, from Sacramento to San Diego), approx. 1,000 individual attendees, and a new performance program -- the Community Arts Showcase -- that featured everything from Appalchian string-band dance music to North Indian Kathak dancing, even a Tuvan-style throat singer! 
As we grow, the Expo remains firmly in the grassroots, and is dedicated to strengthening creative and cultural activity, participation and cross-pollination at the community level.

On death row since 1982, he was wrongfully sentenced for the shooting of a police officer. New evidence, including the recantation of a key eyewitness, new ballistic and forensic evidence and a confession from Arnold Beverly (one of the two killers of Officer Faulkner) points to his innocence! Mumia had no criminal record.

REVISED YLEM Forum info 9/20: "Artists Remember 9/11"

Wednesday, September 20, 8 pm
7:30 pm “mix and meet”
boca (Bar Of Contemporary Art)
414 Jessie Street 
(between 5th & Mint, adjacent to the historical Mint building at 5th & Mission, 
2.5 blocks from Rx Gallery, YLEM’s usual meeting place.)

1 block from the Powell St. BART station
Street parking, or 5th & Mission Garage

Suggested donation sliding scale $5-10 
Open to the public (No one under 21 allowed)

Two artists present explanations for 9/11 at variance with the official 9/11 Commission Report, one sober and factual, the other seriously funny. Also, artists present a proposal for a memorial in Shanksville, PA to Flight #93


Trudy Myrrh Reagan briefly reminisces about YLEM’s 20th anniversary celebration in 2001 held just days after 9/11, and displays the actual comments that people in attendance wrote on the wall about it in their state of shock. 

Trudy Myrrh Reagan is YLEM’s founder.

Chuck Thurston, “Perception, Suggestion and Reality in the Destruction of the World Trade Center Towers - a look at how fear and mass media are combined to create false beliefs in large populations.” 

After a brief but riveting overview of overwhelming evidence supporting the controversial explosive-demolition hypothesis of the destruction of the World Trade Center, Thurston will show how it is part of a long and continuing history of “false flag” provocations, ones which have propelled us into many wars. 

Thurston is an independent artist and expert on high-end digital printing.

Frank Garvey, “The Real 9/11 Conspiracy - Solved!”

Surrealist Frank Garvey presents yet another 'conspiracy' theory on these events. Garvey believes that they flowed inexorably from the structural decisions of the ruling classes in the U.S., Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. In response to the revolutionary rise of Arab nationalism in the 1960's, these power structures have much in common behind the veils of their respective religions. They decided to siphon off the social discontent of poor masses in the Middle East into supposedly more impotent channels, with the help of very reactionary elements in Islam. Garvey’s theory spins off a whole series of outrageous branches and tentacles which will astound and outrage the most tolerant of attendees, no matter what their ideology, income level or hairstyle. 

Frank Garvey has been delighting people with mordant humor and robotic mischief in his OmniCircus Junkyard Cabaret since 1988.

Paula Levine and Susan Schwartzenberg, “Currents: a proposal for a memorial to Flight #93.”

In the fall of 2005, artists Susan Schwartzenberg, Peter Richards and Paula Levine, in collaboration with landscape architect, Tom Leader, designed and submitted a proposal commemorating the crash of United Airlines, Flight #93.  The plane originally departed from Newark, New Jersey, and was bound for Los Angeles California when it crashed in an open, nonresidential old mining field just outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  

The proposal was in response to an international call for submissions to design a commemorative to be located on the site of the plane crash. Currents was designed to counter the tendency of monuments to delimit and flatten history.  It aimed to create an active commemorative that would grow and change over time using a design that incorporated a large reclamation project, education and research on site,  and a large Global Positioning Satellite network of site embedded narratives that wove throughout the large memorial site.  

Schwartzenberg and Levine will talk about this collaboration within a larger context of memorials and history, and explore culture’s current compulsion to memorialize prior to the necessary shift from visceral to collective cultural memory.  

Susan Schwartzenberg, a senior artist at the Exploratorium, is a photographer and visual artist. Paula Levine, professor of conceptual and information arts at SFSU, specializes in locative media like uses of GPS and maps.

# How Architects Can Reverse Global Warming (2 HSWs) 
September 28, 2006   5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
AIA San Francisco
130 Sutter Street, Suite 600

Ed Mazria, AIA, believes architects must become leaders in the fight against global warming. His recently launched 'Architecture 2030'  <> draws a connection between building design and global warming, with research indicating that building design and construction could have a greater effect on reversing global warming than any other industry sector. Considering this research, the AIA Board of Directors released a policy statement calling for a 50% reduction in use of fossil fuels for buildings in four years, with additional reductions leading to eventual carbon-neutrality by 2030. Mazria will present his vision for how to meet these goals.

# OCTOBER 5: There is a way! There is a day!

Well as some of you might know (maybe all) there is a plan for a "nationwide" protest against 
the fascists in power. This is being organized bz WorldCantWait I think Cascadians should 
get involved.... this group involves people like Gore Vidal... their idea is to stimulate the 
begining of a Colour Revolution like in the Ukraine with its Orange Revolution. I think this is 
a means to get the idea of an Evergreen Revolution in the collective thoughts of 
Cascadians ... so after the coming November election fraud and mostlikely WorldCantWaits 
failure for a full "nationwide" revolution then Cascadians might keep these tools and ideas in 
mind for our Evergreen Revolution (using the ideas from the book "From Dictatorship to

About this program: "The Global Dominance Group and 9/11:"
Presentation by Director of Project Censored, Dr. Peter Phillips, at the June 4th, 2006 "9/11 Education and Strategy Conference" in Chicago. This talk is based on recent research conducted at Sonoma State University which identified 240 global dominance advocates who have been the primary promoters and beneficiaries of the so-called war on terror before and after 9/11. Dr. Phillips covers the rise of the neocons and their agenda, who benefited from 9/11 and permanent war, the complicity of the corporate media, and the stolen presidential elections. It's a "who dunnit" analysis and investigation of the greatest crime of the 21st century.

4-Ton Girders: Blowing in the Wind?
 David Chandler / | September 10 2006
 4-ton girders were found as much as 600 feet from the base of the North Tower of the World Trade Center after its collapse. This raises ... all » obvious questions. How fast must they have been ejected from the collapsing building to land that far away? What forces were at work to give such massive structures high horizontal velocities? If anything besides gravity was at work, pandora's box is opened up.
