and January 1& 2, 2007. This meeting was called for members of the International Campaign to meet with the autonomous councils, Good Government Juntas, the comanders and members of the Other Campaign to learn about autonomy. The Encounter took place as the Other Campaign concludes its first year tour of Mexico and prepares to send its commanders throughout Mexico for the second phase of the Other Campaign. Many Chiapas Support Committee members attended the Encuentro and shot awesome video footage to bring back for editing. Some of us stayed on and visited our sister Zapatista municipality, San Manuel. Don’t miss this video report, musical treat and opportunity to get more info on how you can participate in the Zapatista Campaigns.

Turn off your lights on Feb 1st between 755pm and 8pm for the planet

The Alliance of the Planet (The grouping of environmental associations), lunched a simple call to all the citizens of the world: to give a 5 minutes Break to our planet:

everyone turn off all your lights for only five minutes on February 1, 2007 between 19h55 and 20h00 (7:55pm to 8:00pm) on your local time.

It is not a question of only saving 5 minutes of electricity on this specific day, but to draw the attention of citizens, the media and decision makers on the wasting of energy and the urgency to move and take some action!

A 5 minutes break to our planet, that does take a long time, does not cost anything, and will show to the candidates at the legislative elections of June 2007 that the climate change is a subject which must be a priority in the political debate.

Why on February 1? Because on this day in Paris , the new report of the United Nations climatic experts group will be issued.

We should not let the occasion to direct all the attention to the urgency of the world climatic situation pass by.

If we all take part in this action, it will have a real media and political impact, specially a few months before the elections in France and long enough before the elections in Quebec and Canada; so that we can influences the debates between the politicians.

For each time zone throughout the world, the lights will be turned off between 19h55 and 20h...the hour when this demonstration could be observed by the local media. We can then follow throughout the world every hour according to the different time zones. No matter in which country you are located, our governments will be challenged by our common force.

Burners Without Borders Ocean Beach Cleanup, 1st Sunday, This Sunday

Hey everyone-

Here's a note about this Sunday's Burners Without Borders PLUS! DPW,
Recycle Camp,
Earth Guardians, Greening Man and YOU ( cause we're all Burners Without
Borders, right? )
clean up project on Ocean Beach in San Francisco. This is our 3rd
Monthly cleanup so far
and it is working folks. Great things are happening out at Ocean Beach
and greatly in part to our
efforts. If you haven't heard what's happening, come find out this Sunday.

Project Leaders: Blue & DA

When: First Sunday of February of course, February 4th, 2007

Time: 1:00 - Sunset ( approx 4:45 ), followed by bonfires on the beach
no doubt and hanging out. Or just in time to catch the Super Bowl Halftime
show over at the Beach Chalet. I hear that artist formally know as a symbol
will be whooping it up.

Note: DA & I are not sponsoring a bonfire, so if you start one, you are
responsible for it.

Where: Just off the bottom of the concrete steps on Ocean Beach where
Fulton meets Great Highway. Turn South off Fulton onto Great Highway and
enter at the first parking lot.

What to look for: tall flag with flames on it, beach chairs, peeps!

Weather: Supposed to be partly cloudy and 64 degrees Sunday. If its
10% chance, then we might not be there. So far we have had amazing weather
for each of the last 2 cleanup days.

What we're bringing:
MOOP Sticks
MOOP Buckets
Trash bags
Rubber Gloves
Landscaping rakes
Magnet rakes
Sifter screens
Plastic Buckets

What you should bring:
MOOP Sticks, if you got your own
Sweater/layers (could be windy, and will be cooler after dark )
Camp/beach chairs
Anything you'd like to drink
Snacks to share
Sunscreen! Even if it's partly cloudy, you can get a burn.

One other suggestion for you wonderful do-ers! Though there will be
trash bags there,
may I suggest a MOOP bucket. Bags get pretty unwieldy in the wind and
even the burly
ones can break with sharp objects inside. So reach on into your
recycling bin
(or your neighbors) on the way out the door and grab a plastic gallon
milk jug, or one
of the 2 gallon water containers everyone takes to BRC, or an orange
juice container.
Anything plastic will work. Then cut a hole in the top and voila! you
have a MOOP
bucket. This is what we use post event for playa restoration and it is
much easier to
carry around since it has a handle. Also, sharp objects don't potrude.
We'll have
some for those of you who don't have anything, but if you do, grab one.
It's in the
spirit of recycling which is even better. See ya'll Sunday Blue & DA

dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y
by Johan Grimonprez

Buckle up for DIAL H-I-S-T-O-R-Y, the acclaimed hijacking documentary
that eerily foreshadowed 9/11. We meet the romantic skyjackers who
fought their revolutions and won airtime on the passenger planes of
the 1960's and 1970's. By the 1990's, such characters were apparently
no more, replaced on our TV screens by stories of anonymous bombs in

Director Johan Grimonprez investigates the politics behind this
change, at the same time unwrapping our own complicity in the urge for
ultimate disaster. Playing on Don DeLillo's riff in his novel Mao II:
"what terrorists gain, novelists lose" and "home is a failed idea", he
blends archival footage of hijackings with surreal and banal themes,
including fast food, pet statistics, disco, and his quirky home
movies. David Shea composed the superb soundtrack to this free fall
through history, best described in the words of one hijacked Pepsi
executive as "running the gamut of many emotions, from surprise to
shock to fear, to joy, to laughter, and then again, fear."

"Exceptional for its juice, its jazzy compelling fusion of social and
aesthetic issues, and its stomach-churning power."
- The New York Times

"A sense of urgency and a wrenching emotional attack."
- The Times (London)

"Each cut turns a screw deeper until your mind hurts."
- San Francisco Bay Guardian

"An eccentric, roller coaster ride through history."
- Time Out

The Other Cinema Digital label provides an alternative platform for
the distribution of extraordinary film works. We celebrate peculiar
visions and offbeat sensibilities, drawn from the contemporary
underground as well as the archives. Be it auteur, exploitation, or
industrial, OCD delivers a decidedly different audio-visual experience
-- ingenious, comic, critical... dangerous.

The American Way of War

Vegetable Love, The History of Vegetarianism, by Stuart
Reviewed by Steven Shapin

Highlight the link, copy and paste into the address bar!

Although the long article contains thought provoking data, it also
seems to omit historical development in the U.S. during the 19th and
recent 20th century and also slightly distorts some of the facts.
For example, Hitler, in theory supported a vegetarian diet to purify
the human race but, in reality, he did not stick to the diet.
Nevertheless, it is good to have a serious book and article written
on Vegetarianism. There is a lot to chew on.
