Major International Transport Hub Censors Political Websites
While media accuses China of blacklisting sensitive information, censorship is taking place right here at home
While establishment media outlets in the UK spent most of last week reporting on China’s censorship of political websites in anticipation of the Olympic games, they ignored the fact that London’s St. Pancras International, one of the biggest transport hubs in the west, has already implemented stringent filters that block users of their wi-fi service from accessing even mildly political websites.

Brasscheck TV: Cheney tries to start another war
Remember Operation Northwoods?
That was the Pentagon's 1960s era plan to shoot down
a US jetliner filled with US citizens, blame it on
Cuba and then use it as a reason to invade the island.
Recently, the White House was working on its own
21st Century version of Operation Northwoods.

Why don't we shoot ourselves?
One of the plans entertained at a meeting presided over by Dick Cheney was for the US to manufacture Iranian gun boats and order Navy SEALs dressed in Iranian military uniforms to attack US ships.
It was rejected because "you can't have Americans killing Americans?"
The New Yorker refused to include this story in its reporting.
As Sy Hersch put it so well: "Editors are mice training to be rats."

World's First Community Algae Lab Opening @ The Shipyard, Sunday, August 10th
come and experience the art and grunge of the berkeley shipyard, where artists come to make metal art and other fascinating projects, support the hard work of some of the bay area's finest algae lovers, and hear more about why algae are better than pants! . . . read on for more details. xox amanda
by the way, if you didn't already guess, this is my partner, aaron's project.
ps: guess who's making the superfood spirulina scooby snacks? ; )
Why are algae interesting?
Because they eat greenhouse gases
and wastewater to create, in very little space,
fuel, fertilizer, and extremely nutritious food --
all without using valuable farmland
and little or no fresh water.
They are a truly green crop for a sustainable future.
We are the Shipyard algae lab community.
We have created the world's first community algae lab --
for development of open source, DIY-oriented algae technology,
to facilitate the co-operative pursuit of this new form of agriculture --
and we invite *you*
to come see it, *celebrate*
with us, rub shoulders
with hard-working algae-istas,
and sign up for one of our upcoming workshops!
Algae-powered super-snacks will be served ...
come feel the algae love ...

Performing at this event will be San Francisco-based artists: Alorahset, Vow3l Movement, Megs and DJ dr booty (see bios below).

WHAT: BWB Fundraiser: Benefiting the Pisco, Peru Reconstruction Project.
WHERE: The House of Shields Saloon
39 New Montgomery St. San Francisco, CA.
map here:
WHEN: July 31, 8pm-Midnight: Closing out with da FUNK!
COST: $15-20 Donation at the door.
*Thank you to Sellers Market and the House of Shields for donating hors d'oeuvres.
*BWB T-shirts and Hoodies will be available.
This is a great opportunity to show your support for this relentlessly creative community and have a good time while you do it. If you can't make it, please consider giving a donation online at under the 'Donate' link.
What are we celebrating???
August 15, 2008 marks the one year anniversary of an 8.0 earthquake that devastated the Pisco region of Peru and is also the final day of Burners Without Borders' incredibly successful nine-month reconstruction program in this area. The many schools that are being built, the opportunities BWB has created for Peruvians to build permanent homes, and the hundreds of other projects volunteers have spearheaded have been realized because of the over 300 selfless volunteers who have graciously donated their time and energy to this amazing reconstruction effort.
But, none of this would have been possible without the support of YOU, the larger community, who has contributed over $80,000 thus far to BWB's reconstruction efforts in Peru. Visit to see what we've been up to and how your valuable contribution has been put to use. Be sure to check out the BWB Blog to read about our projects through the words of the volunteers who have worked on them.
