     There is a campout vigil 24-7 at Pelosi's house getting a lot of media.  They could use support.

Right now only Toby and Leslie are there and they need some support, someone to relieve them for an hour break, bring them food, umbrella's for shade, music and encouragement, more CodePink people to join them, etc...  They hope to keep this vigil going until the vote on the war funds.  The vigil is at Pelosi's house at 2640 Broadway (between Scott & Divisadero) in San Francisco.

Thu Mar 15

Hey all, We're doing a show this Thursday about what the anti-war movement has
learned over the past four years (well, six really -- since Bush took
the WH).
What's most effective? Shutting down busy streets, occupying Pelosi's
office, street theatre, listening to anti-war vets at rallies?
The show airs Thursday from 10:00-11:00 am on 91.7 fm or online:
We'll be speaking to Code Pink and other activists. -Rose

3/15 5pm Forest for the Trees-Judi Bari v. The FBI-Free Movie Event
GGU National Lawyers Guild presents a film screening of:
A film by Bernadine Mellis
With Special Guest Speaker Bari's Attorney and this year's NLGSF Testimonial
Dinner Honoree Dennis Cunningham
Thursday, March 15th 5-6:30 p.m. Room 2203
Golden Gate University School of Law
536 Mission St., between 1st and 2nd Streets
FREE      Dinner will be Provided.
This film is an intimate look at an unlikely team of young activists and old
lefties who come together to battle the U.S. government following
environmental activist Judi Bari's arrest on terrorism charges in 1990.
Judi Bari was an Earth First! leader who was one of the first to place as
much importance on the legacy and future of the trees as she did on timber
workers' lives and families. But that strategic relationship was too much of
a threat. Her car was bombed in 1990, and three hours later, she was
arrested as a terrorist--charges that were later dropped. Convinced it was a
ploy by the FBI to discredit her and Earth First!, Judi decided to sue.
     Cunningham took on Judi's case and after 12 years, Judi Bari v. the FBI
finally gets a court date. Knowing this is one of her father's most
important cases, Mellis is there at strategy meetings, at breakfast, driving
to and from the court, documenting her morally driven, very tired dad. Not
your typical  Take your daughter to work day,  THE FOREST FOR THE TREES
offers access to a piece of U.S. history that everyday grows increasingly
Q&A and Reception with Dennis Cunningham to follow.
Co-Sponsored by the GGU Environmental Law Society.
"I hope the FBI finds the bomber, and FIRES him!"   -Judi Bari

Come take this free class hosted by the Alameda County Lead Poisoning Prevention Program. Did you know that many older buildings in Alameda County contain lead-based paint under the surface layers and when the paint peels or is disturbed during renovations, children and workers can become lead poisoned? To better protect yourself and your children from lead poisoning, Alameda County is sponsoring this class, which will teach property owners how to detect and remedy lead hazards in the home. This class is taught by expert staff and will offer simple solutions to property owners on how to safely repaint and remodel their homes.

El Circo !-
Random Rab !-
Mark Growden !-
El Papachango !
Xeno !-
Luxxury !-
Tim Barsky !-

And, lo and bold, YOU!
Not to mention:    The Bumblefumbler Feel Box
Bop'm Sock'm Klownbots    The Insta Klown klownification station
     This month, Vau de Vire Society, Gooferman, and Circus Metropolus have pulled out ALL the stops - and yeah, while this may seem like a three day festival, it's NOT! It's all in one phenomenal night, and we've put it together just for you - because we loooooove you!
We simply, through agonizing effort and unwavering love for you and all we want to do for you, create the best show you will have ever seen in your entire life. (Until, that is, our show next month.)
Our Bohemian Carnival for March is going to make you jump for joy, drool with delight, and until then, squirm with anticipation!
We keep making them better and better, with more and more deliciouser performers that will take you to Carnival Nirvana, and leave you dripping with sweat, makeup (probably not yours) and other bodily fluids. (again, probably not yours - but you won't mind, will you?)
Come succumb to the amazing amazinness of El Circo, the phenomenal beats of Random Rab, the passion and raw, in your face music and voice of the one and only Mark Growden! Come gape at the exquisite El Pachango, the leg-wetting sexiness of the aerial workings of our beloved Xeno, and the up-and-downright disco-noir synth-pop deliciousness of Luxxury! Roar like hounds when Tim Barsky steps up to the stage with things indescribable, and just in case all the tantalizing beauties that will be walking around and appearing on the stage aren't enough to stimulate your salivary glands (and those other things that we really like to stimulate), we have LIVE ART! That's right, boyses and girlses, throughout the evening, in front of your very peepers, Andrew Jones is going to be creating something that will make you tremble with delight!
     This is a show to beat all shows, and for merely a pittance, you get bajillions returned back to you in heart-popping awe from the second you step inside!
     We're all about making your evening the best it could ever possibly be - and you have a sincere guarantee from me, kSea flux, personally - if you don't have fun, if you don't see some of the sexiest people you ever have doing things that delight you, if you don't utter at least one "ooooh!" or one "aaaaah!" or one "WHOA!) - then I will personally return your fare. Or at least, buy you a drink.
     There is nothing that compares to Bohemian Carnival - come join us - and dress like you mean it!
(Of course, we always have the insta-klown booth for ALL of your makeup needs!)

A discussion of Grassroots Journalism (revised, second edition published 2007) by Eesha Williams.
Ralph Nader said "If information is the currency of democracy, then it's a good practice for journalism to be of, by, and for the people in the search and reporting of abuses from concentrated power.  Eesha Williams brings this kind of grassroots journalism to your desk, to your mind, and to your heart with the highest of standards. A very motivating manual indeed!"

San Francisco’s World Water Challenge  7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on April 4
Women’s Building SF, 3543 18th St. in the Mission, @ Valencia and Guerrero St.
WHAT: Join faith leaders, water experts, community members, and environmental groups as we celebrate international World Water Day with an evening of education and action. The World Water Challenge is an hour-long community education program about the dangers of corporate control of water and actions to turn back the tide.  Included are stories of corporate water abuses in Asia, Latin America, the United Kingdom and North America.
The event is part of Corporate Accountability International's “Think Outside the Bottle” campaign, which raises awareness about the growing global water crisis, and organizes to protect water as a human right, instead of a corporate commodity.
The United Nations estimates that by 2025, 2 out of 3 people will not have access to water. Find out how we can work together here in the Bay Area for this invaluable common good. Free food provided! Bring your families, friends, and neighbors. All are welcome.
Keynote Speaker: Jared Blumenfeld, Director San Francisco Department of the Environment

BunnyJam07 is coming up, Saturday April 7th.
It's going to be at the Porn Palace space in SF (mission, near the metreon parking garage).
Great space, that looks really nice inside. Castle Room, Barnyard, Retro Bar Room, Jail Room, and more.
The theme is going to be: "The Hare-Itics Ball : Ye Ole Bunny Jamme"  Hop with it.
We really need some fresh bunny art so it's not just the same stuff recycled from last year.
We have alot of small (as in up to 5x5 feet) spaces spread around the venue that we'd love to fill with bunny art. This is where you come in to play. Do you have an idea for an art installation, interactive art piece, performance art piece, or anything really, that you would like to bring to bunny jam?
If so, send me a message or email me at
We also need general volunteers for set up and running the party, but that doesn't take as much advanced planning.

BYOBW 2007 	Sunday, April 8, 4:00 PM
the Bring Your Own Big Wheel race is back and curvier than ever!*
2007 will be the SEVENTH ANNUAL BYOBW, neighbors and police permitting, rain or shine ... there are always prizes, one year featured tighty-whities with custom denim iron-on Lombard Street Skid Marks and other years have featured paintings, string art, shellac plaques, and embroidered knit caps and t shirts, all made by me. Lombard Street is of course not the crookedest street, especially compared to Vermont Street in Potrero Hill, but with a built-in international audience and scenic landscaping, who could resist? Prizes are given for all sorts of reasons, occasionally for being first, always for being last, and as the race is designed for plastic children's toys which are prone to failure when carrying over 80 pounds, winning isn't the goal here - survival is. This is a free event!!!!

Thu April 12, 7:30–9 p.m. Nancy DeStefanis, Executive Director of San Francisco Nature Education, will lecture and screen the short films Above the Nests, directed by Nancy DeStefanis, and Heron Island, directed by Judy Irving (Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill). Nancy will also present a brief slide show of highlights of the 2006 great blue heron colony.
Sponsored by the San Francisco Naturalist Society, the films will be shown on Thursday, April 12, 7:30–9 p.m. at the Randall Museum Theater, Randall Museum, 199 Museum Way, San Francisco. For more information see the Calendar of Events on our website Apr 14 Nat'l day of CLIMATE ACTION
