Sat Aug 18 3:00 PM SF LGBT Community Center  1800 Market St SF (corner of Market and Octavia St  in  Rainbow Room
Former deputy sheriff Nate Bradley will join us Saturday, August 18th to share some of his experience on dealing with police encounters. We rely on the police to keep us safe and treat us all fairly. However, the criminal justice system is composed of human beings, who are imperfect. As a result, even innocent people are frequently victims of an imperfect criminal justice system that is designed to inflict harsh punishment. You should always be careful about what you say when approached by law enforcement officials. It’s important to know your rights, be respectful, and stay calm.
It is unfortunate that sometimes an encounter with the police can turn into a nightmare. And while lying to police can get you arrested, police are trained to lie to suspects as an interrogation technique. All too often, perfectly innocent people attempting desperately to convey their innocence create additional opportunities for their words to be used against them.
* How do I handle a police encounter in my home, car, or in public?
* What is "resisting arrest"?
* Once police have arrested me, do I have to answer their questions?
* What if police threaten to call the dogs?
* If I'm innocent, should I talk to police?
Schedule   3:00pm - Doors open   3:30pm - Workshop   5:00pm - Event ends
From 2003-2009 Nate Bradley was a police officer and a deputy sheriff. During his time in law enforcement he worked patrol, background investigations, and the gang task force. Most of his career was spent proactively working with the local community to reduce crime and neighborhood problems. During regular encounters with citizens who were medical cannabis patients he began to see that these patients were not the “marijuana addicts” that he had been trained to believe they were. He found them to be average people who wanted to live normal lives, free of pain or anxiety.
Since leaving law enforcement Nate has been involved in numerous areas of the drug policy reform movement. In 2010 he became a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition and served as a spokesman for the Yes on Prop 19 campaign. In 2011 Nate founded Lawmen Protecting Patients, a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the rights of medical cannabis patients. Since founding LPP, he has personally influenced numerous pieces of legislation at the CA State Capitol. Nate also runs a strategic consulting company and is a licensed private investigator.
Donations from $5-$20 are encouraged, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

DUSTY )'( 2012 so YOU Need a BEACH CRUISER or MTN bike and CAMP near ESPLANADE
since MAN is on HARD playa and Streets become dusty somewhere back deeper than ESPLANADE you do NOT want to power through dust dunes every trip.
GOT TO BE NEAR esplanade this year as DUST starts after the streets start.
PLAYA is FLAT. STREETS are DUSTY. this will be my 18th year in a row so I've learned a thing or 2. NEED RECON  on where dust is BAD.
Biking through DEEP dust is DIFFICULT and will REDUCE your MOBILITY and your PARTY.

This year is going to be one of the DUSTIEST we've seen in like, ever. There is a thick layer of loose dust on top of the playa just waiting to get kicked up. So, this is NOT the year to bring a bike with narrow tires ... you're going to want one with FAT tires to push through the heavy spots. Yes, really.

Going to Burning man? Do you like DUST? HABOOB: An intense dust-storm...

John William Fairclough As we speak I'm working on a more portable device to filter out dust. It's a large tube you can wear on your chest, partially filled with water. A smaller tube carries the dust laden air through to the bottom of the water. You inhale through the top of the larger tube, the bubbling action traps the particulates in the water, supplying you with a much purer air supply. I'm going to call it the Bing.

Sachi Ivy Just got a new one from and love it! Cool designs, comfort fit, and easily reinforced with a wet scarf. BM15 in the promo code box gets you 15% off

say hi and remind me where we met and where we usually see each other cause CONTEXT is KING if I'm gonna recognize you :)

RELAX. You are safe enough to ASSUME you are going. Plenty folk asked for more tix than they needed to cover their friends / family / camps.
You might post a Tix ad in the WANTED section of CL with fun creative text of who you are, once a week if you are bored, or try different text each time.
also List trades or OFFERS of what you will exchange in the SIGNATURE of your EMAIL
speaking of TRADES take a look at
perhaps you can ask for what you want; perhaps stop saying oh I'm fine each time a friend or stranger asks how you are doing. Instead answer that you seek a BM ticket then repeat your offers or trades. Let your friends be your angels and matchmakers. :)

Sat Sep 8 2012 MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD present POWER to the PEACEFUL in GOLDEN GATE PARK SF @ Speedway Meadows, JFK @ 25th ave/ Fulton
power to the peaceful this year is charging $10 admission.  
I've been working that beautiful party for years but this year (after the break year) the only way it could happen was to charge a nominal fee.  - the years of "gift economy -aka 'free'as you list it" are over due to the gift economy being seen as free not a reciprocal of love energy exchange.  We still have a huge vollunteer staff and truly anyone wanting 'free' admission can just ask to help out.  All the garbage - everything -the healing - there are many jobs to make it run - they're all still run on vollunteership. We as an organization love your community list and I (this is Liz) especially do.  - 
Its unfortunate that this is the news.  Power to the Peaceful still wants to get the main message out: That this is an event to empower the peaceful.

Nov 6 VOTE to LABEL GMOs! GMO Interview with Jeffrey Smith ::: Prepare for the November 6th Vote on Prop 37! in California
Hi there, Please make sure you are prepared to teach people why we need to support California Prop 37, the mandatory labelling of GMOs.
Please watch this video to educate yourself about just how and why GMOs are harmful to the environment, to farmers, to animals, to babies, and to you! In just a few minutes Jeffrey Smith, acclaimed author of 'Seeds of Deception,' will describe to you why we need to remove GMOs from our diet and from the planet. Also, please make sure you support the vote for Prop 37 on November 6th, 2012 in California, the vote to demand mandatory GMO labeling on all foods!
Note: In all other states (20 states so far) where this law was proposed Monsanto was able to reverse it because Monsanto literally rules/owns the key government positions/offices relative to this issue. However, California is different. Prop 37 is a grassroots initiative created by the people (A Grandmom in Marin started it). Hence, in California, Monsanto must stop the people to stop the vote. Monsanto may have control over the government, but they don't have control over us now do they. So please rise up and stop them. The Government can't stop Monsanto but the People Can! If we get this law passed it will deal a serious blow to Monsanto. 
By the way, a big reason why I am so vehemently opposed to Monsanto is that I have a massive amount of first hand eyewitness experience of the carnage they wreak in India, where every 30 minutes another farmer commits suicide by drinking roundup. Often it is hard to control my outrage against these diabolical Monsters. Someday I hope they all experience the fate of Icelandic bankers. Indeed, may Monsanto's Execs come face to face with Polly Higgins in the The Hague's ICJ!   Thanks    Prashanti

SLR is gearing up to launch a very exciting campaign to support the campaign to Label GMOs in California - Yes to Prop 37. We are looking for volunteers in the Bay Area who can join our efforts. Everything from marches, to public art projects, teach-ins, BBQs, pub-crawls and more!! Please leave a message here or email to get involved!!!
