Asbestos Scumlord Silverstein had asbestos in his
World Trade Center 1,2 and 7 buildings, and did not want to fix.
Silverstein did what so many other Scumlords do: Arson for Insurance,
with the help of his NeoCon New World Order Friends.
(who engineered a "Pearl Harbor" type excuse to go get Arab Oil)
World trade center 7 was not hit by airplanes or significant debris.
(World trade center 6 stood in the way)
Yet at 5:20 pm on Sept 11, 2001, World Trade Center 7 was demolished.
How convenient! See the videos, see the demolition, see the crime:

Not Your Parent's Drug Test
A surge in the number of Americans peeing on demand has coincided with an explosion of alternative drug testing technology.
One look at the Cozart RapiScan, a self-proclaimed complete "on-site oral fluid drugs of abuse diagnostic system," and it's obvious: This isn't your parents' drug test. Gone are the golden days of the plastic collection cup. The Cozart saliva testing system comes in a spiffy silver suitcase and consists of an oral fluid collection swab, a disposable test cartridge, its own handheld digital computer, and a portable printer "for a permanent record of test results."
The official U.S. distributor of the RapiScan, The Dominion Diagnostics Corporation, was one of many hi-tech exhibitors hawking their wares in Tampa last spring at a meeting of corporate drug testers, toxicologists and law enforcement officers, sponsored, in part, by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (a.k.a. the drug czar's office). But this White House-backed gathering was no trade show. The purpose of this symposium – and the intent of the bodily fluid snoopers in attendance – was to call for an unprecedented, government-mandated expansion of both drug testing and the application of new drug-screening technology – and not just for those within the workplace. And the pee police may be close to getting their wish.

The Psychological Assault
The September 11, 2001 attack has all of the hallmarks of a psychological operation (psy-op). It appears to have been engineered to produce shock and fear in the populace while limiting the number of immediate casualties to several thousand people. The perpetrators counted on psychological numbing to insert the Osama bin Laden attack legend. The attack itself is so unbelievable that it induces a suspension of disbelief, which causes the victim (of the psy-op) to overlook huge gaps in the official story.

Out, the Making of a Revolutionary:
Convicted of the 1983 US Capitol Bombing, and 'conspiring to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government through violent and illegal means", Laura Whitehorn, an out lesbian and one of six defendants in the Resistance Conspiracy Case, spent 14 years in prison. OUT is the story of her life and times - five tumultuous decades of struggle for freedom and justice. Planting a bomb in the US Capitol Building was the culmination of a lifetime of radical protest for Whitehorn, and 14 years in federal penitentiary have only solidified her stance as a committed American revolutionary.

Torture, illegal detention and other human rights
abuses have always been weapons used by the United
States government to crush dissent and social justice
movements. Today, the criminalization of people of
color in the US, mass illegal detentions and
deportations of Arabs, Muslims and immigrants, torture
in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and in US prisons are
evidence of a terrifying escalation in US repression
both at home and abroad.

What can we do? Our strength lies in building on the
experiences of those who resist: here in the US, in
Latin America, Palestine, the Philippines, the
Caribbean, and in countless communities throughout the
world. The International Human Rights Initiative was
conceived by a strong diverse coalition, including US
political prisoners, to help unite the emerging global
resistance movement.

# No military recruitment in our schools!
From: caroseligman [at] aol.com
Notice to students, teachers, parents who oppose military recruitment in the
schools:
Please join with peace activists to speak out at the S.F. Board of Education
meeting on Feb. 22nd, 7 p.m, at 555 Franklin St., 2nd floor (near Golden
Gate).
We passed Proposition N in S.F. by 63%. It called for the immediate
withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq. But S.F. high school students are
being actively recruited by the U.S. military on campus through direct
recruitment and through the Jr.ROTC program. Many recent City graduates are
currently serving in Iraq. This must end. Schools must not be used to
recruit youngsters to kill or be killed in this illegal, immoral war!
Please help spread the word. Let us know if you will speak at the Board
meeting.
E-mail Bay Area United Against War at: giobon [at] sbcglobal.net

Draft Resolution for San Francisco Board of Education

Cut Ties with the Military

WHEREAS, the United States military is actively recruiting high school
students into the military to fight in Iraq; and

WHEREAS, many young San Francisco high school alumni are presently serving
in
military units fighting in Iraq; and

WHEREAS, it is San Francisco City policy by virtue of Proposition N, to
bring
all U.S. troops home from Iraq now; and

WHEREAS, over 1,500 U.S. soldiers and at least 100,000 Iraqis have been
killed in this war and over 10,000 U.S. soldiers and unknown thousands of
Iraqis
have been wounded; and

WHEREAS, the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the war have robbed
our
children of resources that should be spent on education and other human
needs; and

WHEREAS, military presence in our schools legitimizes the message that
violence is acceptable; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT:

It shall be the policy of the San Francisco Board of Education to support
cutting all ties with the United States military, including, but not
limited to:
Ending military recruitment on campuses; ending the Junior Reserved Officer
Training Corps (JROTC); and ensuring that all students and parents are
informed
of their right to deny military recruiters access to their names, addresses
and telephone numbers.

# A very good article appeared on our local indymedia-
Cody's Books, Telegraph Ave, Berkeley.
Cody's Thurs: 'Denial and Deception' - 'Former' CIA Agents Advancing the
9/11 Cover-up
http://www.indybay.org/news/2005/02/1722554.php

It would be a good place to raise questions, and also pass out handbills
http://www.deceptiondollar.com/TempArt/GreatConspiracy.htm
for our upcoming events.
(We have a whole case in Berkeley waiting to be distributed)

Our 9-11 premiere events continue to evolve. I just send this out to
friends-

For years, we have been trying to break the basic facts about 9-11 into
the mainstream news. Marches, rallies, film screenings, educational
events, the International inquiries into 9-11, radio programs, television
programs, books, magazines, art, Deception Dollars, street theatre have
all contributed to a raising of consciousness. Even the New York Times,
the L.A. Times, and Congress are now forced to acknowledge that the
Administration lied about what it knew, when. The White House is in panic
mode, issuing new terrorist warnings, and hiring experts in terrorism,
death squads, and repression to head up our Intelligence Agencies and
Homeland Insecurity.
March 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, in and around San Francisco, we will be
premiering "The 9-11 News Special You Never Saw- The Great Conspiracy"
produced by Barrie Zwicker, the first mainstream journalist to deeply
question the official story, and director of the Toronto International
Inquiry into 9-11. The screenings will be followed by dialogues with
Barrie Zwicker; author of 9-11 Synthetic Terror: Made in the USA, Webster
G. Tarpley; Director of Project Censored, Peter Phillips; Investigative
Reporter, musician, Michael Kane, the press and the public. I'm working
hard to encourage the few "independent press outlets" to break the story
and be applauded for championing truth and justice. Who in the press will
come to which event remains to be seen.
Simply the process of organizing has helped me to see how much our
movement has progressed. The book stores have asked us which 9-11 books
they ought to carry. The Pacifica website has a special category for 9-11
truth events on its calendar.
The Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance is now a project of Agape
Foundation; we have sent two delegates to represent us this weekend in St.
Louis at the United for Peace and Justice national conference to support
proposals which merge the 9-11 Truth Movement with the Peace and Justice
Movement...
Additional Bay Area 9-11 organizational and public events are posted at
http://www.communitycurrency.org/9-11.html#EVENTS
Last year our "Behind Every Terrorist- There is a Bush" comedy event
was tremendously enjoyed and appreciated. A great comedian, Swami
Beyondananda, has volunteered to offer a bit of comic relief, during the
film breaks, to help people grasp the heavy message we are carrying.
There is nothing quite so empowering, as humor, to help large numbers of
people to overcome their fears and take action.
These should be fun, historic events. We realize that even if we make
headlines on the local papers; we still will have a journey ahead to hold
those responsible for 9-11 accountable. Please come if you can!!!!

All screenings begin at 7:30 PM to be followed by dialogues with producer,
Barrie Zwicker; author of "9-11 Synthetic Terror: Made in the USA,"
Webster G. Tarpley; Director of Project Censored, Peter Phillips; and
Michael Kane, musician, investigative reporter, the press, and the
public.
Barrie Zwicker was the first mainstream television journalist to
deeply examine the official 9-11 story; he was director of the Toronto
International Citizens' Inquiry into 9-11. In the documentary, Zwicker
analyzes the use of fear to unnerve the public and deconstructs the
so-called "war on terror." He examines in depth the failure of the
military on 9/11 and George Bush's highly inappropriate behavior on that
day. He finds the 9/11 Commission Report to be a cover-up operation.
Throughout the film, he analyzes the role of mainstream media in keeping
the public misinformed.
All tickets $10 available @the door and at the local bookstores which
are our co-sponsors, also available through http://www.cityboxoffice.com

# David Harris presents his new book...
THE CRISIS: The President, The Prophet, and the Shah
1979 and the Coming of Militant Islam
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24 7:30 p.m.
First Presbyterian Church
1140 Cowper Street, Palo Alto
$7 http://www.peaceandjustice.org
DAVID HARRIS presents his compelling new book, The Crisis: The President, the Prophet, and the Shah - 1979 and the Coming of Militant Islam. David Harris is the legendary antiwar activist who went to jail for draft resistance in the 1960s. Formerly a contributing editor at the New York Times Magazine and Rolling Stone, he is the author of seven previous books, including The League, Dreams Die Hard, The Last Stand and Our War.
A quarter century ago, a group of Iranian students swept into the United States embassy in Tehran, overpowering the Americans there and taking them hostage. The crisis that ensued would last for 444 days. It would define the Carter presidency and help give rise to the Reagan administration. It would begin as a rebellion against one brutal dictator and end with another in place. It was the turning point, the moment when radical Islam first rose up against America-the beginning of a clash that continues to define our times today.
Now, for the first time, drawing on unprecedented interviews with American, Iranian, and European participants, acclaimed historian David Harris tells the full story of those 444 days. Harris's gripping narrative races from Washington to Tehran to Paris to Panama, tracking a dying shah, a flailing Carter, an ascending Khomeini, the disastrous Desert One rescue attempt, and the lives of the Americans held in blindfolds amid a revolution like none other.
With The Crisis, David Harris has written an essential work of modern history that is also a breathtaking narrative of passion, politics, and faith.

Thursday, February 24th
@ 111 MINNA, SAN FRANCISCO
8pm to 2am
$15bucks to 10g's going straight to the kids...
("Musoq Pacha":  Quechua for "New Earth")
Background:  Kia Milagros is the founder and main-mama at Casa de Milagros,
an orphanage in the Sacred Vally of the Inca, near Cuzco and Machu Picchu,
Peru.  Both Kia and the Casa are incredibly inspiring embodiments of
love-in-action.  She can be imagined as "Mother Teresa goes to Burning Man,"
and the "orphanage" is actually an incredibly vibrant and dynamic community
of children, gardens, butterfly costumes, horses, geese...  The kids have a
nationally reknowned theatre troupe, and have performed at the National
Opera in Lima.
Kia is from the U.S. and is an ultra-hip medicine mama whom I have witnessed
to be able to speak to the awakening heart of our generation like no one
else.  She carries the wisdom of the elder but vibes in the realms of
eternal youth.
Viva La Pachamama!!!

STOP MILITARY RECRUITING IN OUR SCHOOLS!
*COME TO THIS COMMUNITY MEETING WITH TEACHERS,*
* STUDENTS, ANTI-WAR ACTIVISTS, AND VETERANS*
2PM SATURDAY FEB 26 // WOMEN'S BUILDING, SF (see below)
***U.S. Army recruiters were kicked off campus at Seattle Central
Community College on Jan. 20, 2005*. Recently military recruiters caused
outrage at College Park High in Pleasant Hill when they set up a
shooting range on the school grounds with many students protesting their
presence. Prop N showed that Francisco is against the occupation of
Iraq. So far the Bush Administration has been too afraid of the anger
they might provoke by re-instituting a draft. Instead they are offering
huge incentives, including scholarships and cash pay outs to get young
people to sign up. With parents angry about education cuts, families
outraged at the senseless death of their loved ones, and students
already having some success in confronting recruiters now is the time
build a movement that keeps our kids from supporting and dying in an
occupation that the city is against. Money for colleges not for recruitment!

Freedom Archives 522 Valencia St @ 15th / 16th SF
“The events of 9/11 have been used as a pretext for the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and have become a symbol of an end to democracy.” John Judge says. He will be speaking on 9/11, addressing the findings of the 9/11 Commission and many things you want to know but are not sure how to ask. He will address the deceit that the Bush administration uses to make huge war profits and rob domestic institutions, like social security, in order to finance a permanent war economy. Peter Dale Scott, recently returned from Thailand, will open the program.

9/11 the Road to Tyranny An Axex Jones Documentary
Humanist Hall 390 27th Street between Telegraph & Broadway
below Pill Hill parking next door off both 27th & 28th StreetsHill
midtown Oakland Presented by Erin McCann

The mainstream media is whitewashing and lying about what really happened on September 11th 2001. This film is shaking the foundations of Washington D.C. as the definitive film on what really happened on September 11th and who stands to gain. The US government needed a crisis to convince the people to willingly give up their liberty in exchange for safety. Now the painful facts are in. The dark forces of global government are funding, training, and protecting terrorist networks worldwide. This Alex Jones’ film documents the ruthless history of governments orchestrating terrorist attacks against their own people to scare them into total submission. In this brutal expose you will witness the birth of a global police state that surpasses Orwell’s nighmarish vision. It’s all here: the history of government-sponsored terrorism, the modern implementation of fear-based control and, most frightening of all, the New World Order’s future plans. This is one film you cannot afford to ignore. The future of free people everywhere is at stake.

Before and after the film, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Coffee House.

Redefining Our Relationships
A RADICAL LOVE WORKSHOP
with Wendy-O Matik
Author of the book, Redefining Our Relationships- Guidelines for Responsible Open Relationships
$10 – $20, sliding scale
http://www.wendyomatik.com
This is a daring and provocative how-to workshop on radically defined relationships and alternative lifestyles. Wendy-O Matik talks about what she has lived and experienced: open relationships. She believes that open relationships reduce the hazards that accompany unhealthy co-dependency. Open relationships challenge us to confront our jealousy and possessiveness. Committing to a relationship not mapped out by our parents or society or Hollywood means tearing down the very foundation of status quo and conformity. It means redefining and rebuilding your own version of an alternative relationship based on your needs and your values.
Loving openly and freely in this day and age, whether you're straight or queer, is a political act. We are conditioned by out-moded social norms that limit our perceptions and shackle us to unhealthy cycles of dissatisfying relationships. Yet we live in a time where we can choose our own gender or redefine our own sexual identity. Isn't it safe to assume that we also have a right to decide what kind of relationship is more suitable to our lifestyle? Declare yourself a revolutionary activist of the heart. Find out how you can expand your potential to love,and radicalize your lifestyle!
Check out the East Bay Express article about Wendy-O here:

STANDING IN PEACE, HOW TO LIVE WITHOUT FIGHTING

An afternoon with Marcia Doerr, legal expert, educator

For 144 years, since Abraham Lincoln, the North American continent has been a nation "occupied"
by the expression of "war powers" and its resultant "commerce."

Let's discuss the implications of how that relates to YOUR life today.

* Learn how you can "choose" between being a debtor or a creditor

* Do you prefer to be a Sovereign or a Taxpayer (deal with the IRS)?

* Are you a Private or a Public "person"?

* Configure yourself to be a Traveler or are you a Driver? Guess which
one pays traffic fines!

* The meaning of Honor/Dishonor in law (and in daily life).

* How do you find your Self and resolve the fundamental conflict when your heart wants Peace in a
world at war?
