June 5 in San Francisco: From Black Power to Green Scare: The Criminalization of Dissent
Thursday, June 5, 2008 6:30 p.m. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Join the Center for Constitutional Rights and the National Lawyers Guild - San Francisco Chapter for an engaging and important discussion exploring the criminalization of dissent both historically and in today's era of the so-called "war on terror."
The government has a long and sordid history of criminalizing and targeting oppressed communities and social justice activists and organizations that challenge its abuse of power - from the "Red Scare" of the 1920s, to the internment of Japanese Americans, to the targeting of the Black liberation struggle and other movements.
And today, under the guise of "anti-terrorist" legislation, the government is again attempting to target and intimidate a wide range of communities and movements, from former Black Panthers to environmental and animal rights groups to Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities.
On Thursday, June 5, hear from directly impacted communities as well as attorneys and grassroots organizers struggling against repression.
Featured speakers:
SHAYANA KADIDAL, Center for Constitutional Rights, Managing attorney of the Guantànamo Global Justice Initiative.
RICHARD BROWN, Committee for the Defense of Human Rights and one of the "San Francisco 8," former Black Panthers facing renewed charges based on torture evidence
MICHEL SHEHADEH, Palestinian activist and one of the "Los Angeles 8," Palestinian and Kenyan immigrants targeted for their political activity who won a historic victory in November 2007 after a 20-year struggle
ANDREA LINDSAY, SHAC 7 Support Committee and an activist involved in combating the "Green Scare" against environmental and animal rights activists
LAUREN ORNELAS, Food Empowerment Project and an environmental and animal rights
The Women's Building Audre Lorde Room 3543 18th St., #8 SF, CA 94110

Why am I forwarding this?
Because I do not like police states or authoritarian regimes that command me to wear clothes
made of petroleum and synthetic chemicals that cause cancer,
assembled in sweat shops, requiring nuclear or coal energy to wash or dry
in carcinogenic laundry detergents that cast phosphates into our water table
that restrict my movement when I am swimming or crossing rivers
and generally serve to remove us from our humanity.

A village of engagement for healthy body, home, family and community
June 21& 22, 9am-7pm Sharon Meadow, Golden Gate Park
The Big ONE 2008, is a free two-day community building event, the first annual gathering of its kind in the Bay Area. This convergence is intended to develop new relationships through dialogue, committed engagement, and trust. We desire to collectively re-envision our communities. We want to develop sustainability awareness and action, civic engagement, and localization of culture, economy, and decision-making. We promote respect for all life and the planet that sustains us
The convergence will be located in Golden Gate Park in Sharon Meadow, June 21 and 22, 2008. Ten neighborhood tents will make up the village. Each neighborhood will represent a community need, addressing such issues as Youth Engagement and Empowerment, Social Justice, Global Warming, Green Jobs , Greening the City and Schoolyards, Civic Engagement, Story Telling from our Elders, Sustainable Community (food, water and sewage security), Permaculture, World Peace, Health, Alternative Medicine, Education, Music, Dance and Art, GLBTQ, Race & Culture, Spirituality, and Community Communication.
The "Village of Engagement" is a gathering of people from Bay Area Non-Profit Organizations, Foundations, members of the Community, Schools, Worker-Owned Coops, Entrepreneurs and representatives from our respective Bay Area City Governments. Participants will have the opportunity to design, envision, collaborate, and dialog with new friends on the future of their own neighborhoods.
To prepare for the challenging times ahead of us, we encourage you to come, be heard, and engage. The format of your participation can be setting up a table or tent in one of the neighborhoods to collaborate and share information, interactive classes, power-point presentations, hands-on demonstrations of sustainable skills, forums or artistic endeavors. We provide the fill it with your dreams. We are using the Wiser Earth platform to organize, plan and co-create the event at
This is a 100% noncommercial event. Nothing will be for sale. We encourage everyone to bring food and drink and extra to share with your new friends! Come experience and participate. "The New Me is We".

The Political Mind: Why You Can't Understand 21st Century American Politics with an 18th Century Brain
Tuesday, June 24, 6:00 PM Mechanics' Institute 57 Post St SF
Linguist George Lakoff discusses language, politics, the human brain and how all three connect in his fascinating study of modern politics. Effective story-telling, according to Lakoff, touches an emotional chord in humans that is far more effective than the dry and logical discussion of issues. Any political movement that hopes to succeed must approach voters using a language that engages listeners on that emotional level. The impact will be seen in this upcoming election! reservations call 415-393-0100 or email at rsvp [at]
