4th and Mission

check out for some other ideas... dearest special assignment organisms, This friday [ 8.8.03]  S.W.A.T. - the Movie - premieres at the Metreon... And frankly,  any culture jammer* worth her/ his salt will not let this one pass without a massive epileptic seizure of  dada , mayhem, and hysterics ... like the very Furies are up one 's sleeve and dancing in your pants leg. So we are calling You (and all your brother and sister Orgs) to the task ! Provided below are a few suggestions and some backround incentives to get you off your ass and ready to react in a revelatory commando-stylee raid on the pickled brainchildren of the Hollywood-centric underworlds... First off , for those of you in the Bay Area we ask you to join us for this ominous premiere screening presented at our very own anti-cultural mecca - the Metreon ( even the name is like some Keenu Reeves commercial for some wonderbread godstar deoderant ). @ 101 Fourth Street • San Francisco, CA 94103 for the 8:15pm screening of S.W.A.T. meet around 7:15pm either in line or out back in the Yerba Buena gardens area ( depending on the crowd ). Come dressed in Guantanamo Orange ** ( w/  a canvas or paper bag to put over your head )  ... and a placard naming your 'favorite' 4th Reich propaganda artist...  or perhaps you'd like to inform or remind  the public about one of the many DISAPPEARED immigrants *** who was rounded up and detained by realworld Homeland Security 'Swatters' or ...  ??? ... perhaps you have your own ideas entirely. Revel in your own dream c- jammies ! Some of us may actually pay to see the damn thing, others may choose to hold their noses  and wander the Code Orange Bardo ... the Metreon mall of the dead... and perhaps make a stab at reclaiming public space or even attempt to awaken one of the puzzled-looking pickled consumers. ::: ::: :::: a little backround: Idris Stelley: a 23 year old African American student shot 20 times and killed at the Sony Metreon in San Francisco by 8 cops on June 12, 2001. read more; ... [8.5.03] Once Again, A Los Angeles Jury Fails To Convict In Video Taped Police Brutality Defense Attorney John Barnett can add another notch in his breifcase. For the second time in his career, he succeeded in deflecting accountability for a police officer that was caught on tape obviously brutalizing an African American. The first time was when he successfully got a state court aquittal for Theodore Bresino, who was clearly seen stomping on Rodney King during the savage beating. This time he achieved an aquittal for officer Bijan Darvish for filing a false police report about the assault on the then 16 year old Donovan Jackson. read more: ...
