# Sep 6, 7pm San Rafael
Last year, the Bay Area responded with open arms to the devastation 
caused by Hurricane Katrina by taking into their homes the 
bewildered dogs and cats who had been abandoned and left to suffer 
the wrath of the storm alone. In observance of the one-year 
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Marin Humane Society and In 
Defense of Animals present a special one-time screening of Dark 
Water Rising: The Truth About Hurricane Katrina Animal Rescues, 
Wednesday, September 6, 7pm, at the Smith Rafael Film Center (1118 
4th St., San Rafael). Award-winning documentary film director Mike 
Shiley will make a personal appearance to introduce his new film and 
answer questions, and Captain Cindy Machado of the Marin Humane 
Society will present information about disaster preparedness for 
people with pets. A $10 suggested donation will benefit animals in 


More than 2,500 of the four-legged Katrina survivors were brought to 
the Bay Area for care prior to being reunited with their families or 
placed in new, loving homes. They were the lucky ones — more than 
35,000 companion animals perished in New Orleans due to disaster 
policies that didn't take pets into account. Dark Water Rising 
introduces us to the courageous people who traveled to New Orleans 
from around the country and risked their own lives to rescue trapped 
and starving animals. The film also begs the question: How can we 
protect our pets if something like this happens in the Bay Area? 

Haunted by his memories of the dead, frightened and emaciated 
animals he saw while filming in New Orleans, Shiley says, "It's my 
deepest hope that this film motivates people to put pressure on 
Congress to pass the PETS Act so that never again will anyone be 
forced to evacuate without their pets."

The roles MHS and IDA played in the aftermath of the hurricanes
The Marin Humane Society was centrally involved with pet rescue 
efforts in the aftermath of the hurricanes last fall. Leading the 
first-ever pet airlifts to transport animals out of the disaster 
region, 2,500 rescued dogs and cats were flown to the Bay Area as 
part of MHS' Operation Orphans of the Storm. Animal shelters and 
rescue organizations around the Bay cared for these animals until 
they could be reunited or rehomed.

"I will never forget the looks of relief and gratitude in the eyes 
of the dogs and cats as they emerged from their airplane crates into 
the arms of volunteers waiting to care for them," says Diane 
Allevato, executive director, Marin Humane Society. "We were happy 
to help these animals, but they deserved much better — they deserved 
to be evacuated with their families."

In Defense of Animals also played a key role in disaster relief 
efforts for animals, sending volunteers to the hurricane-stricken 
area to rescue animals and transport them to regional shelters with 
the ability to care for them. IDA's Project Hope volunteers are 
still involved in transporting animals out of the affected areas.

"This powerful film of bravery and compassion documents the courage 
and dedication of caring people to right the wrongs of others," says 
Elliot Katz, DVM, president, In Defense of Animals. "Viewing it made 
me more determined than ever to advocate for disaster relief and 
preparation. I hope that the harsh lessons we've learned from this 
disaster have not been in vain and that our national leaders will 
commit to animal evacuation plans being part of all future disaster 
planning around the country."

Tickets for the screening of Dark Water Rising will be sold at the 
door beginning at 6pm. Space is limited. For further information, 
please call In Defense of Animals at (415) 388-9641 or the Marin 
Humane Society at (415) 506-6256.

Inspired by Jan Lundberg 

Today, 6.5 billion humans depend entirely on oil for food, energy, plastics and chemicals. Population growth is on a collision course with the inevitable decline in oil production. After assessing today’s dwindling oil reserves and skyrocketing use of oil for fuels, plastics and chemicals, this new documentary questions the motives for the U.S. wars in the Middle-East and Central Asia where 3/4 of the world’s oil and natural gas is located. Filmmakers Ungerman and Brohy expose the human cost and examine the big picture of the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq that may lead the world toward the next global conflict. Did you know that almost half a million U.S. military personnel are deployed overseas near oil fields and oil routes? Or that the U.S. military deployment in Afghanistan and Central Asia blocks China and Russia from accessing oil and natural gas they desperately need for their economies? Interviews gathered throughout the Middle-East, Europe, and the U.S., including a Bechtel executive in Baghdad, also expose who is cashing in on the tens of billions of dollars requested from Congress by the current administration of Dubbya Bush. A must-see for anyone who wants to fill in the blanks with what is really at stake with today’s “war on terror.” 

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

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 
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:
And volunteer to help:
Organizations, large and small, can sign up to participate:
Organizations, trainers, speakers, educators, and performers should 
propose activities that they believe would benefit thousands of 
citizens who want to work for change: 
Internet activists, and anyone with a blog or a website, can help by 
posting this information and link to the website using this link:

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/

Yard Dogs Road Show

Born from the saloon vaudeville that toured the Wild West in the late 1800's. Slammed into the underworld of modern American road culture. The Yard Dogs combine the elements of vaudeville and burlesque - creating a timeless space for the union of ancient theatrical alchemy and modern pop culture. A true story on stage. Sword swallowers, fire eaters, burlesque, rambling hobo poetry and sideshow oddities all animated by the live sounds of the Yard Dogs cartoon gypsy band, The Golden Wings of Glory. 

"Burlesque inspired, hair on fire, electrified cartoon music played by a well dressed jug band in a dark circus tent with a man swallowing swords and hobo rambling poetry . Oh yeah, and did I mention the dancing girls, dancing girls, dancing girls! The Yard Dogs offer much more than entertainment. They peddle adventure and soulful abandon...a wild electrifying sense of freedom...written by the light of campfires with the hand of wine, music, lust and dust." -SF Weekly 

Tickets available on-line at & 
Tickets also available via phone at 1-800-225-2277.

# We are not going to work on 9-11. That might be good for some of us, but what if.....



maybe the message would hit home faster to the Bankers and Government. 
Does anyone want to run some figures to see how much the Corporations would lose in profits for our one day of standing? Would it take more than one day to express our choice?
Just a thought. Lou (AZ)


One hundred years ago, on September 11, 1906 Mohandas Gandhi convened a meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa, to mobilize his community to oppose racially degrading legislation. That September 11th, more than 3000 people solemnly pledged to disobey the proposed law, despite the consequences, without the use of violence. This fall, Nonviolent Peaceforce invites you to resolve to break the new cycle of violence that began on September 11, 2001. 

GATHER to break the cycle: 
Gather with others to reflect on the teachings of Gandhi, to take the Resolution together, to discuss working for the use of nonviolent solutions to conflicts. We've provided a leaflet template you can edit, a Gathering Guide, background articles, and other resources you can use locally to hold your own 100th Anniversary event. 

WORK A DAY to break the cycle: 
The Nonviolent Peaceforce works in the field every day to break the cycle of violence. You can work locally-by donating a day's pay or the cost of a day's unarmed civilian peacekeeping, by volunteering your time, by learning more nonviolence skills. 

RESOLVE to break the cycle: 
"I choose to break the cycle of violence. I will seek to resolve my own conflicts without violence; and I will encourage nonviolent responses to conflict by my neighbors, governments, and civilians worldwide." 

We will deliver your resolution signatures to the UN Secretary General after November 11, the anniversary of the end of World War I. This will help us in our work to urge the United Nations to explore unarmed peacekeeping as an alternative to armed peacekeeping.

# September 11-12th, 2006- 9/11 Film Festival

Premiere of new film of David Ray Griffin- "9/11 the Myth and the Reality"
September 11, 2006, 6:30 pm
Grand Lake Theater
3200 Grand Lake Avenue
Oakland, California

Doors open at 6:00 each night, trailers, previews and shorts start at
6:30, film premieres start at 7:00. Q & A / discussion with the
filmmakers follows each night.

This will be the world film premiere of David Ray Griffin's talk given
at the Grand Lake Theater March 30, 2006 to a sold out audience.
Griffin's presentation was videotaped with six cameras, and 9/11
filmmaker Ken Jenkins has illustrated the film with hundreds of
graphics and clips. This video will likely become not only the
definitive Griffin DVD, but will likely serve as the Loose Change for
the older generations. Griffin condensed the highlights of his first
two books on 9/11 into a dynamic presentation. A slightly shorter
version of the same talk was given April 3rd at the prestigious
Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, and much of the footage in the
film is from that location. The premiere will be followed by a
question and answer session with filmmaker and 9/11 activist Ken

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

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.

# 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.

The best thing that we liberals can do would be to start vocally supporting the 2nd amendment and actually making use of it personally to be able to defend ourselves. 

They are going to use disasters and epidemics to herd people into camps, we need to resist and we need to be able to defend ourselves. 

That is the only kind of language the riech wing understands. 

And that is what this is all coming to, its not about the cable TV wedge issues they keep people distracted with.
