# Second Annual Nouveau Salon Fri July 9th Reception 6-10pm Free
food, drink and great entertainment until 10 p.m. So put on your best
party outfit (so dust off that old dress or your smoking jacket) and
join us! ArtSalon of San Francisco is a group of local artists from very
different backgrounds, reflecting San Francisco's diversity. A
community of artists serves as an audience in a much wider context
than an artist working alone. Just as society in general benefits
from the mix of its population's talents, a community of artists
supports individual talents and uses them as fulcrums for
expressions broader than the individual could achieve. Artistic
communities cannot be confined to the studio or the gallery. Their
vitality spills over into neighborhoods as exhibits, open studios,
show events and other public expressions. Whitney Young Cultural Center

# The New Progressive Left Movement Presents:
Communities Speak For Themselves:
Environmental Racism and Violence in the Community
Violence in Bayview Hunters Point and other communities of color is on
the rise and starting to spread. While the media and some political
leaders choose to blame the parents or youth in these communities,
activists in the community have been fighting the real causes of
community violence for years.
An overall framework of environmental and economic racism has led to
Bayview Hunters Point and surrounding areas becoming the toxic dumping
ground for San Francisco. Two power plants, a sewage treatment plant,
two superfund pollution sites, over 600 hazardous materials sites, two
highways and other factors contribute to the highest rates of breast
cancer, asthma and other illnesses in the country. Meanwhile there is a
lack of economic opportunities, educational resources, health care and
other necessities for a healthy community.
There will be a panel presentation by community members and activists
followed by open discussion, along with cultural performances and a BBQ
Progressives everywhere are affected by the root causes of these
issues, while the battles are being waged in communities of color. All
progressives are invited to join the community discussion of these
important issues.
Panelists include Maurice Campbell, Lynne Brown, Dr. Ahimsa Sumchai,
Ray Tomkins, John Nauer, Barbara George and Berta Hernandez.
Saturday July 10, from 12 to 5pm in Hunters Point at the Milton Meyers
Recreation Center, also known as the Kiska Gym at 195 Kiska Road.
The 54 Muni from 3rd and Hudson brings you right to the door.

# Thu Aug 19 Who Owns Water? Protecting the World's Water
from Corporate Takeover / water
Fortune magazine has predicted that "water is the oil of the 21
century," and now corporations are rushing to invest in the new
get-rich economy of water. Giant water, energy, food, and shipping
companies have plans to buy water rights, privatize publicly-owned
water systems, promote bottled water, and sell "bulk" water by
transporting it from water rich areas to thirsty markets. As the
world's water becomes scarcer and corporations seek to exploit this
scarcity for profit, people around the world are losing ownership and
control of water resources on which they depend. But water is a human
right; to the extent one has the right to live, one has the right to
Join us for a discussion with Juliette Beck and John Gibler of Public
Citizen's Water for All Campaign. Public Citizen's Water for All
Campaign is dedicated to protecting water as a common resource,
stopping water privatization and bulk water sales, and defending
access to clean and affordable water around the world. Come hear how
people in California and around the world - from Stockton and Gualala
to Bolivia and Bangladesh - are defending the global commons and our
right to water, and find out how you can help. 7 pm - 9 pm
