# Universal Uprising on Leap Day! You spend 365 days a year chained to the Man.
Why not use your "extra" day to show him what's what?!!!
In Berkeley, gather at downtown Berkeley BART to rampage through
downtown and build foundations for a world based on cooperation,
freedom, and respect for the earth. Bring pillows, potted plants,
running shoes, masks, your sense of humor, and a desire to be free.
Four years ago, the first Leap Day action was a fun filled romp past
many of Berkeley's more evil chain stores. The first Leap Day featured
a finger puppet reenactment of the WTO riots, this year may include 100
years of labor struggles as acted out in pillow fights. Or it may not.
The night promises to be full of surprises. Come with a hatred of
capitalism and a desire to see something different and you probably
won't be disappointed. We hope to see many of you in the streets.


# Propagating Party to Prepare Plants for Protest!
Sun Feb.29, 11am-3PM at Berkeley Ecohouse
The Protest‹the June 6-8 mobilization against the biotech
industry>conference being planned in San Francisco. We want to do more than
say no to corporate control of our food supply and of life itself. We want to
demonstrate the alternatives‹organic gardens, community food growing,
natural medicinals, street transformations, massive giveaways of organic
seeds and plants. To make this happen, we need to start now‹propagating
cuttings, saving seeds, starting seedlings. So come and help,
Sunday Feb. 29, 11am-3PM at Berkeley Ecohouse 1305 Hopkins Street
(Xstreet Peralta - 10 min walk from NBerk BART).
We1ll provide potting soil and some plant material and Root
Juice. You bring food and drink to share, your own pruners, your old
plastic pots (especially 4 inchers) that you1ve tried to recycle and can1t,
plant material if you have it. Don1t know how to propagate? We1ll teach you!
