# Special benefit screening for the SF Bay Area Independent Media Center *ABOUT BAGHDAD* Sun Nov 21 7:30 p $5
@ Station 40 3030b 16th St (& Mission), directly across from BART
In July 2003 Sinan Antoon, an exiled Iraqi writer and poet, returned to
Baghdad to see what has become of his city after wars, sanctions,
decades of oppression and violence, and now occupation. Antoon takes
journey exploring what Iraqis think and feel about the post-war situation
and the complex relationship between the US and Iraq.
About Baghdad is a journey into the hearts and minds of the hundreds of
Iraqis we encountered in Baghdad. In the simmering heat of Baghdad’s
summer, Iraqis, of various ethnic and political backgrounds and
orientations, speak of past horrors and present fears.
Reflections on the traumatic legacy of dictatorship, sanctions and war,
also reflect resilience and humanity of a people who were, for decades,
dehumanized and disappeared behind Saddam’s image. From poets to
politicians, cabbies to communists, a retired senior citizen to an
American soldier at Bremmer’s HQ, "About Baghdad" navigates the dire,
and oft misunderstood and misrepresented, straits separating, yet
involving, both Iraqis and Americans.

# PUJA RITUAL reverent and beautiful devotional ritual otherwise
'sculptured party.' In some traditions, homage to a specific diety is
emphasized. At this puja, we pay homage to the archetypal divine in
each other. We begin with elements of white tantra yoga: meditation,
pranayama, secret subtle-body (internal) yoga, mantra, mudra, kundalini
awareness, and more. A moving circle is formed, and you get the
opportunity to have a moment with other guests, sharing a specific
guided (completely non-explicit) tantric exchange, which might consist
of eye gazing or light touch. Participation in all practices is
completely optional. Meditative observance is welcome at any time. The
puja ritual is by donation, and no one is turned away for lack of
funds. Like all events at Temple, RSVP is required. Please allow at
least 2 hrs. 11/28, 12/16

What: An Anti-Inaugural
When: Thursday, January 20th at 10:30 a.m.
Where: The Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco
Why: To protest an illegal president and his immoral war
Organized by : Not In Our Name Sonoma County
Contact: Susan Lamont, Not In Our Name Sonoma County, 707-569-9922

In conjunction with the inauguration of a fraudulent president in Washington, D.C., San Francisco will hold its own mock inauguration. As "Bush" takes the oath of office, the "crowd" will turn its collective back on Bush and shout "NO!" We want to send an undeniable message that Bush does not speak or act in the interests of the great majority of people here and around the world, that the direction of this government is profoundly immoral and illegitimate, and that there is a resistance that refuses to be stifled.

The protest is being held without a permit and in front of the building that holds the federal courts for a reason. The Constitution states that the laws of a signed treaty supercede the laws of the U.S. Bush may not legally go to war in contravention to those treaties, even with the permission of Congress. Through his actions, Bush has implicitly told the world that laws are irrelevant. Therefore, in "honor" of Bush and his illegal war, we are holding an illegal protest. He couldn't possibly object.
