A major rally is planned for this coming Saturday to protest the proposed anti-nudity legislation in San Francisco. This rally, organized by Desmond Perrotto , already has 157 confirmed attendees, another 103 "maybees" and the numbers will undoubtedly grow in the coming days. For more information, see 
This rally is where we expect to see a uniting of various groups whose interests and activities are threatened by Supervisor Scott Wiener's reckless political gambit -- groups including the leather-folk, the Bay-to-Breakers enthusiasts, the naked bike-riders, the street fair supporters, and lots of others. If you can make it to this event, please come -- dressed or undressed.

Larry King to moderate third-party presidential debate
Larry King will moderate a debate among the third-party presidential candidates on Oct. 23, the Free and Equal Elections Foundation announced on Tuesday.                                           
Ora TV - YouTube

Ora TV Official Site. Ora 2012 With Larry King. "Larry King Now" on Ora TV. "Larry King Now" on Hulu. @OraTV on Twitter. Ora TV on Facebook. Ora TV on ...

The debate, which will be held in Chicago, will feature Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, and Rocky Anderson  of the newly formed Justice Party. The event will be broadcast live on Ora TV, the digital programming service where King launched his online talk show, “Larry King Now,” earlier this year. The Free and Equal Elections Foundation and, for unclear reasons, Russia Today will also stream the debate online.

“We are honored to have Larry King moderate this historic debate,” Christina Tobin, founder and chair of the foundation, said in a release. “The previous debates between President Obama and Gov. Romney have failed to address the issues that really concern everyday Americans. From foreign policy, to the economy, to taboo subjects like our diminishing civil liberties and the drug war, Americans deserve a real debate, real solutions, and real electoral options.”

The addition of King, who hosted "Larry King Live" for 25 years before singing off in December 2010, certainly lends some star power to an otherwise neglected corner of the American political system.

The exclusion of third-party candidates from the officially sanctioned presidential debates has been a source of frustration for activists on both ends of the political spectrum since at least 1987, when the Commission on Presidential Debates was formed by the Republican and Democratic parties.

The last time a third-party candidate was invited to participate in a presidential debate was in 1992, when independent Ross Perot famously invoked the “giant sucking sound” of jobs leaving the country thanks to NAFTA in his face-off with George Bush and Bill Clinton.

Opinion polls say most California voters support GMO labeling, but labeling opponents (Dupont, Monsanto) are outspending us 7 to 1. PLEASE SUPPORT PROPOSITION 37. Watch these videos and help them go viral, volunteer, donate, whatever, just TAKE ACTION!

Nov 6 VOTE to LABEL GMOs! - Corporations owning some of the nation's most popular organic brands (Horizon, Silk, Kashi, Cascadian Farms, R.W. Knudsen's, etc.) have joined Monsanto and the biotechnology industry in fighting California citizen initiative, Proposition 37, that will mandate GMO labeling . And if we win in California, companies will then likely be forced to label GMOs nationwide.

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

Odwalla. Cascadian Farms. R.W. Knudsen. Horizon. Pepsi Coke Smuckers Kellogs. That’s just the short list of brands owned by companies willing to spend thousands of dollars to keep you from knowing what’s in your food.
Say it Isn't So: Organic Brands Backing the Campaign to Defeat GMO Labeling The next time you take a swig of Odwalla's Organic Carrot Juice, or munch on a bowl of Orville Redenbacher's Organic popcorn, take note: A lot of popular organic and all-natural brands are made by companies that are spending
"You might want to think twice about food shopping at Walmart before the next family barbecue. The store has admitted it will start selling genetically engineered sweet corn – the first such sweet corn to be widely available as a whole food on American supermarket shelves." Read more here:

Please leave a message here or email ao@ HTTP:// to get involved!!!
