Move to Amend is a national coalition of over 270,000 people and organizations whose goal is amending the United States Constitution to end corporate rule by building a multiracial, cross-class democracy movement. David's presentations are part history lesson and part heart-felt call-to-action! "Challenging Corporate Rule & Creating Democracy" aims to help local folks understand how they can work to abolish corporate personhood and establish a government of, by, and for the people.
On his Northern & Central California Tour, Cobb will be joined by Sarah Scudder, National Outreach Coordinator for the Move to Amend Coalition and Humboldt County Move to Amend Coordinator. Scudder has a degree in Political Science from Humboldt State University and a passion for creating a true democratic republic free of corruption in the United States.

It would be awesome to have as many people present as possible to show support, plus
I would love to see your beautiful faces there! If you can attend, visit this link

WEIRDI GRAS 14th annual How Weird Street Faire Sunday April 28, 2013
spectacle of amazing art, music, and movement as the greatest street faire in the galaxy takes over the streets of downtown San Francisco for a carnival of peace. There will be marching bands, acoustic bands, dance music stages, live art, unique vendors, and more parades than any street faire in the world. And you are invited to participate.
This year, the faire will be filled with Krewes, who will produce the many parades, bands, and stages. A Krewe is a group of 3 or more people united in a common mission with a common name. If you'd like to participate, send a description of your idea to krewes(at) and we will send an application and instructions. The deadline for completed applications is January 25th.

Join us on Sunday April 28th as we usher in the San Francisco festival season with costumes, parades, marching bands, dancing, and much more at the greatest street faire in the galaxy: How Weird Street Faire: Weirdi Gras 2013.
Featuring sound stages by Symbiosis Events, Enchanted Forest, Muti Music, Opulent Temple, Opel Productions, Pink Mammoth, Psycircle, Pulse SF, Temple Nightclub and many more!
RSVP Here:
Check out and use hashtag: #hwsf to stay up to date with all of the weirdness!
Poster by Robert Kidwell and Brad Olsen.

Want to have more fun at How Weird this year? Make your own parade!
This year, in honor of Mardi Gras, we are inviting people to form a Krewe and have a parade during the 14th annual How Weird Street Faire. In New Orleans, the month and a half long Mardi Gras celebration is filled with colorful parades of Krewes, each with its own theme and style. For How Weird this year, we hope to have more parades in one day than New Orleans has during their entire Mardi Gras season!
Everyone at How Weird this year is encouraged to march in parades. Organize one yourself, or join one that catches your attention at the faire. The parades will have their starting points mapped and scheduled, so they will be easy to find.
The How Weird parades will be produced by Krewes of 3 or more people who share a common name and theme. The parades will have no music, enabling them to weave in and out of the many music stages.
If you are interested in forming a Krewe, send an email with your idea and we will send you more information -
The first parade is at 12:01 PM by the Mystic Krewe of Knowledge. They will start at the Howard and New Montgomery Street entrance and proceed to the Info Booth, where they will remain throughout the day answering all of your questions.

TWO events: 1. PRESS CONFERENCE Thurs. May 23 @ 1pm. 2. SCREENING of Who Bombed Judi Bari? Friday, May 24 (anniversary of the bombing) at 8:30 PM OUTDOORS at Mythbusters, 1268 Missouri SF (off Cesar Chavez),  W/Producer Darryl Cherney & EF! Co-founder Mike Roselle. Trailer:

Frank Doyle, retired FBI agent & Bomb School teacher & MYTHBUSTERS guest star, was found guilty in federal court (Bari v. Doyle) for lying about the bomb in Judi's car-- was HIRED BY MYTHBUSTERS as their on screen bomb expert. THE MYTH TO BUST: Doyle showed up at the bomb scene, just 30 days after teaching Bomb School on an L-P clearcut in Humboldt, & proclaimed on video: "This is the Final Exam." Doyle denied this before a jury. MYTHBUSTERS can use voice recognitions machines to tell whether Doyle committed perjury. Plenty of clips on Mythbusters to compare!

Here is Special Agent Frank Doyle of the FBI (retired) at the 1st Amendment/Free Speech trial he lost to Judi Bari & Darryl Cherney. He lied about the location of the bomb as soon as he arrived at the scene. Why did he cover up the tracks of the bomber and blame the victims, instead?

Burning Man Infographic
The history of Burning Man has always been a complex entity that has survived, nay, mutated over the years. And because of this, it has grown rapidly since its humble beginnings of a simple gathering on a beach.
The infographic poster shows only a small portion of what Burning Man is. By no means do mere numbers even begin to show a complete picture, as that is a history of stories, experiences, and individual tales.
I was recently interviewed by Jordan Salinger from the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association about this inforgraphic:
“For some it is a yearly spiritual revival providing an emotionally charged respite from reality; for others it simply means they are able to eat brunch without standing in line. The mark left by Burning Man on San Franciscans and this city is undoubtedly immense, but is hard to truly measure. The same can be said about the impact on Black Rock City, Burning Man’s yearly home, but this stunning infographic provides an all-encompassing perspective on the event.”
