SF events 10.5 John Roberts installed by presidential coup
by Arrest Roberts / BushCoup Now
Monday Oct 3rd, 2005 7:20 PM
As an American citizen I am bound by no law executed by Bush Coup.
I am bound by no Judgement by John Roberts or any other criminal installed by BushHitler.
Wake UP America, the current organized crime family running Washington, DC
is similar (in fact connected) to the NAZI hijacking of a highly civilized Germany.

CURE Childhood Cancer Cautions Parents on Increased Cancer Risk for Children From Gene-Damaging Chemicals
Recent EPA Announcement Says Children May Be More Vulnerable
1. Seal the wood at least once a year on outside decks, playsets and
other outdoor wooden structures. Fence off the area under the deck to
keep children and pets away from arsenic infested soil. Nearly all
outdoor wooden structures are infused with a pesticide called CCA that
is 22 percent arsenic. Arsenic causes lung, bladder and skin cancer.
It also may cause leukemia, kidney, nasal passage and prostate cancer,
as well as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Childhood
cancer risks may be substantially higher if your child is exposed more
than three hours per week, eats the dirt, mouths the wood or gets
splinters from it, or eats without washing his or her hands after
playing on the wood.
2. Use fragrance-free fabric softeners and dryer static sheets when doing
laundry, and avoid plug-in or other room fresheners. Chemicals that
make dryer sheets smell good are known poisons. For example, benzyl
acetate, limonene and chloroform - common ingredients in fabric
softeners and dryer sheets - are linked to cancer.

The Great Owl Invasion
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheNeuschwabenlandTimes/message/10037
obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.

Thanks for your blessings of good intentions for my immediate future. I feel the love with much gratitude.
~~~~My BEST position is to "make" them drop the case via public pressure!~~~~~~~~
Please use your san francisco connections now!
This number gets you thru. Please pass it on widley to sympathetc persons who probably will call d.a.'s office. My sanity depends on this. xxoo, Tracer

As many of you now know I was arrested & handcuffed non-consensually at this Folsom St Leather Faire on sunday Sept 25th for allegedly selling brownies (they have NO witnesses). Supposedly someone got sick & described someone looking like me as their brownie purchasee. But there has been no positive ID done at all. 2 others were arrested on same charge/acusation.

My lawyer?is Jim Hammer, who is the best connected & sane person to deal with type case. Friend, Erich P lent him to me initially, but now I have to pay. We are talking about party/fundraisers if this goes to trial. I really hope they will drop this immediately!
?
My BEST position is to "make" them drop the case via public pressure!

PLEASE call Kamela Harris's office 415.553.1741 before 10/9 friday 9am*. I need as many calls as possible everyday.
Identify yourself as a San Francisco resident, if you are.
Otherwise, you’re a concerned citizen.
Pass This On! Email everywhere! Thanks!

You are calling about case # 2235854 Tracey Howell.
Mere suggestions:
(If sf resident) Demand, as a voter/citizen of S.F., to know why taxpayer's money is being wasted on this case. This is not the position you expected when you voted for her.
(everyone) You are dissapointed that this would even happen in San Francisco.
Tracey has no previous record whatsoever. As a yoga teacher & community supporter she is a healthy addition to S.F., not a crimminal to be charged & prosecuted.
Drop this case!
?
* My court date is next Friday october 7th at 9am. Not sure if supporters there would be helpful or not -- but if you're able -- let me know and I will get back to you.

The CLAER project is hosting a brown bag discussion about Katrina and it's impact on the African American Community.

Several relocated New Orleans families have also been invited.

(please note there are no local restaurants nearby, so shop before you come to Visitiacion Valley)

How to get there:
The Village, 1099 Sunnydale ave is near the northwest
corner of Sunnydale and Schwerin.

Geneva BART- take the 15 Bus going east towards the Bay
(not to City College) and get off at Visitacion and Schwerin, walk

First Ever San Francisco "March Backwards"
Wells Fargo global headquarters
Montgomery and California Streets, San Francisco
San Francisco

Join the First Ever San Francisco "MARCH BACKWARDS" with Wells Fargo...
the most environmentally and socially regressive bank in America!

WHAT?
Join the Bay Area progressive social justice and green community for a fun and festive "backwards march" at Wells Fargo's headquarters to draw attention to the company's regressive investment policies. Wells Fargo is the largest U.S. bank to operate with no social or environmental guidelines, and finances some of the most destructive oil and gas drilling, mountaintop removal coal mining, and dirty, polluting power plants in America. What's more, Wells Fargo profits from predatory lending in low income communities and communities of color, and exploits immigrant communities by charging exorbitant fees to wire money home to their families.

Wells Fargo is proud of its "Wild West" stage coaches and Gold Rush iconography, but it takes the metaphor too far. Instead of financing archaic, destructive projects best suited for the 1800's, Wells Fargo should be making clean, sustainable, socially just investments for the 21st century. It's time for Wells Fargo to get on the wagon and stop funding destruction! With your help, we will make it clear that the Bay Area's leading bank cannot keep living in the past.

A dance party and campaign rally to benefit the GE Free Sonoma initiative campaign will rock the Sebastopol Community Center on Saturday, October 8. Organizers promise an evening of music, knowledge and community empowerment.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for an evening of music, laughs and noted speakers. Admission is $15, and only $10 for those who join the list of volunteers assisting with the GE Free campaign. All proceeds go to the campaign.

Performers are donating their energy and their time. The musical lineup includes Sol Horizon, Carnaval Spirit, DJ Dragonfly, and Patric Optimystic Music, with a special appearance by Swami Beyondananda.

Samplings of gourmet food and coffee will fill the tables of the main hall, along with a beer and wine bar. Knowledge about Genetically Modified food and the GE Free Initiative will also be there in abundance. Speakers will include Larry Robinson, Mayor of Sebastopol; Patricia Dines, activist and author of The Organic Guide book series; and Betty Biodiesel. The startling documentary The Future of Food will show several times during the day.

The GE Free initiative, when passed, will set in place a 10-year moratorium on Genetically modified food crops. At this event, issues of crop contamination, seed integrity, health and the corporate control of food will be discussed.

This is a dance party with a purpose, and it is sponsored by Harmony Festival, Green Mary, North Bay EcoFest, Daily Acts, and Archer Audio.

Sebastopol Community Center is located at 390 Morris St
101 North to Santa Rosa, West on 12 to Sebastopol.

# Sat Oct. 8 @ 7 p.m San Quentin Families Project Benefit Larkspur Café Theatre
500 Magnolia Ave, Larkspur 415.924.6107,
http://www.larkspurcafetheatre.com
Van Jones will be giving a keynote talk about over-incarceration in California’s billion dollar prison industry, and the over-incarceration of marginalized peoples. The evening will have Suzi Jestadt and Liza Klein highlighting the project and others directly or indirectly tied to San Quentin speaking on their experiences. We invite you to come join us for a heartfelt and worthwhile evening to benefit the San Quentin Families Project.
The San Quentin Families Project was started by Suzi Jestadt after her transformative experience helping to facilitate a “positive attitude” support group with life inmates at San Quentin Prison. The desire exhibited by the men in this group to be positive and constructive in their prison lives, is enveloped by enough grace and beauty to be shared with each living person outside prison walls. Suzi went to Liza Klein, pastor of the First United Methodist Church, for support and input on a project to somehow help prisoners, and together they created the San Quentin Families Project.
The project is working to start relationships with these and other men of the prison community, in assisting them to be connected with their children while incarcerated. It hopes to develop, cultivate, and sustain relationships by helping to coordinate physical visits, funding materials for contact, and encouraging the men to be active parents in their children lives.
Food, Drink, Organic ice cream and Live music from Baslao, Shree Dove, and Joanne Lawson will be served.
Hosted by Suzi Jestadt $15-$25 Tickets available at:
Bedrock Music 415.258.9745
First United Methodist Church of San Rafael 415.453.8716
and will be available at the door on the evening of the event.
No one turned away for lack of funds.

# Peak Oil 10/08/05 8:30pm $5

Subtitled "Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream",
this intellectually ambitious archival-footage essay offers a
comprehensive forecast of the bleak future predicted by the Peak Oil
hypothesis. With diminishing petroleum supplies, Post-War plans for
sprawling communities linked to the cities by car-coursed freeways
can now be more clearly seen as logical cul-de-sacs. This thoroughly
researched Canadian doc enriches the argument through interviews,
industrial footage, and a well-chosen dose of irony. Opening the
program is Heather Roger's "The Hidden Life of Garbage" (soon to be
published in book form),
a bracing 20-min. inquiry into the forgotten fate of Everyman's
trash. Bicyclists get free popcorn!

# The San Francisco Tesla Society Presents a free lecture

"September Surprise, October Surprise:
Everything You Think You Know About 9/11 Is Wrong --

featuring Barbara Honegger

Sunday, October 9, 2001 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
at Round Table Pizza
Banquet Room on 2nd Floor
5160 Geary Blvd. (at 16th Ave.)
San Francisco, California

Barbara Honegger is a senior military affairs journalist and
founding member of the International 9/11 Truth Alliance.
Her talk will compliment Jim Hoffman's September
presentation and feature a scientific investigation / data
analysis of the 9/11 Pentagon attacks. Honegger was the
first to expose the meaning and central importance of the
multiple-hijack-scenario anti-terror emergency response
exercises and wargames being conducted by the Bush
Administration on Sept. 11th. Her 9/11 contributions are
prominently credited and featured in "Crossing the Rubicon"
by Michael Ruppert and "Inside Job" by Jim Marrs.

Ms. Honegger served as a White House Policy Analyst in the
1980's and was the first public resignation of conscience
from the Reagan-Bush Administration. She is the author of
"October Surprise", the first book to document the secret
deal between the 1980 Reagan-Bush Campaign and the radical
Islamist Khomeini regime to delay the release of the U.S.
hostages in Iran until after the 1981 presidential
inauguration of Ronald Reagan. Exposure of the "October
Surprise" ignited a major Congressional investigation.

Ms. Honegger earned the first accredited U.S. graduate
degree in Consciousness Studies/Experimental Parapsychology,
from John F. Kennedy University (1981). She holds a B.A.
in Communications/Honors Writing from Stanford University
(1969), with expertise in the neuropsychology of human
and nonhuman primate communication.

STATUS ON MOHSEN HOURMANESH, D.E.D.
Citizenship or Deportation

Several SF Tesla Society officers joined other supporters of
Mohsen
Houmanesh at a Federal Immigration Court Hearing in San
Francisco in August.
The Judge postponed his final decision so that additional
evidence regarding
Mo's case can be prepared and presented next year at another
hearing in
January 2006. We hope that at that time, justice will be
served and Mohsen
Hourmanesh will finally be granted his well earned U.S.
citizenship.

San Francisco Tesla Society has been providing free
science oriented
lectures to the public for over 12 years. For more

# GI Rights Hotline Training October 15
A crucial element to slowing the military machine is helping individual GIs get out of the military!  As CCCO has done since 1948, we are supporting individuals in their resistance and opposition to war.  In particular, we are standing with a group of people —GI’s whose questioning and resistance are increasing and becoming better known

The GI Rights hotline is staffed by a network of organizations throughout the United States and in Germany.  In 2004 we received 32,000 calls from people who needed help obtaining discharge from the military.  Increasingly, people are also using email to contact us and we sent about 3,000 emails in response to email queries.  

The hotline provides accurate, comprehensive, and objective information on draft registration, military discharges, civil rights in the military, and involuntary activation and deployment of military personnel.  The work we do and the information we disseminate are known to enlisted people in numbers far greater then the thousands with whom we communicate personally.

We are seeking additional military counselors to volunteer on the Hotline.  Tasks include answering live phone calls, returning phone messages, responding to email inquiries, and making referrals to relevant organizations and individuals.  Volunteers make an initial one- year commitment of at least 2 hours of service per week.

CCCO will be holding a GI Rights volunteer training on
Saturday, October 15, 2005 9am – 5pm
405 14th St., Suite #205 Oakland, CA
Pr-registration required by September 26
For more information or to register for the training, call
510-465-1617 or 888-231-2226
Or email steve [at] objector.org
http://www.objector.org/gitraining.html
The training will provide an overview of all the discharges, AWOL practices and regulations, and  legal and ethical issues in hotline counseling.

# Third Friday's Art Reception Fri Oct 21 5-8pm FREE door closes 7:30 pm
Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Hosts Art Opening of Tim Gaskin'sWork

"My work is a statement on how artists and advertising brands become
icons."

monthly Third Friday's Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room
282. This month's featured artist is Tim Gaskin.

politics, the sexual revolution, television, magazines, fashion, the
HIV/AIDS pandemic, local art, and dance music. Gaskin uses his art to
transform and enhance the environment of others. His work has been
called "inspired pop art, each seeking the balance of nature and flow
of energy with just the right mix." His Superstar Collection includes

icons. Gaskin is also the producer and host of Comcast's first LGBT
show OUT Spoken.

7PM: THE MYSTERY OF PICASSO (1956)
From French director Henri-Georges Clouzot. Capturing the moment and
the mystery of creativity, for this film, Picasso created 20
artworks, ranging from playful black-and-white sketches to widescreen
color paintings. Using inks that bled through the paper, Picasso
rapidly created fanciful drawings that Clouzot was able to film from
the reverse side, capturing their creation in real time. This month
commemorates Picasso's 124th birthday.

9PM: FELA KUTI - MUSIC IS THE WEAPON (1982)
Fela Anikulapo Kuti (1938-1997) was a Nigerian colossus, a prolific
singer-composer who played keyboards, trumpet and saxophone. Fela hit
upon what he called Afro-beat, a seductive, explosive groove wherein
highlife and Yoruba folklore were fused with American jazz, R&B and
funk. This new sound, charged with searing anti-colonial lyrics,
became the vehicle for political dissent. Fela was repeatedly
harassed and jailed due to his political views. By the time of his
death from an AIDS-related illness, he had transformed African music
for all time. This film overflows with fervent live performances,
frank interviews and exudes genuine Lagos street credo circa 1982.

# Surgical Tools & Techniques Sat Nov 12 10am-4pm
Included in the price of admission to the Exploratorium
Forget those medical shows on TV. Get the true scoop on surgical
tools and techniques from members of the Association of Operating
Room Nurses (AORN). (Their fascinating demonstrations will be
performed without the use of real patients.) Try your hand at a
"seedectomy," where you'll have a chance to use keyhole instruments
to remove a seed from a pumpkin. These demonstrations will take place
at the Exploratorium and are free with museum admission.
AORN's mision is to support registered nurses and achieve optimal
outcomes for patients undergoing operative and other invasive
procedures.

Shame Utah for Assault on Dance Community

Dear reader,

Are you a terrorist?

If you're dancing in Utah, the police might treat you like one.

In the latest escalation of the failed war on drugs, 90 law enforcement officers armed with assault weapons, attack dogs and helicopters raided a peaceful and legal dance party on private land outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Law-abiding citizens were intimidated and harassed. Some people were beaten. The constitution was trampled.

Please watch these harrowing video clips taken during the raid.

And then take action.

Make your voice heard.
