"I was building a bridge," an Afghan contactor said, one evening over drinks. "The local Taliban commander called and said 'don't build a bridge there, we'll have to blow it up.' I asked him to let me finish the bridge, collect the money -- then they could blow it up whenever they wanted. We agreed, and I completed my project." Who is funding the Afghan Taliban?

Much to the chagrin of the establishment left, Firas Alkhateeb is not a Republican and not a white supremacist
The revelation that the author of the Obama Joker poster is a politically independent Muslim-American, and not a Republican white supremacist as the establishment left had hoped, puts the final nail in the coffin of the smear that the poster depicting President Obama as Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker in Batman was in any way racist.

Jack into the Bay Area's Alternative Economy w/ Heather Young
An alternative economy is emerging that’s run by people like you and I. And it’s built to serve us, unlike that other f@%$! economy. The way to make it real is to begin transacting on its platforms and using its currencies. And we must begin our withdrawal from the platforms and currencies that steal our health and wealth. This month’s Abundance League is designed to help us do just that.
Heather Young is an alternative economic organizer and has been an environmental and social justice activist for over a decade. She will be discussing the many ways we can create this economy together right now in a more loving, abundant, just and sustainable way here in the Bay Area. She’ll give us an overview of the movement in the Bay Area and share it’s various projects including:
-Bay Area Community Exchange – a network of alternative currency projects in the Bay Area, including a time exchange project that is in trial phase.
-The Really Really Free Market – an event that demonstrates a pure gift economy in SF and over 50 other cities in the US and around the world.
-JASecon (Just Alternative Sustainable economy) – an all volunteer organization that aims to tie together and synergize all the different aspects of the alternative economy and to host a grassroots economic festival/conference on Sept. 26 in Oakland.
-Plus Neighborhood Vegetables and others.
When: August 20th, 6:30-9:30pm
Where: Citizen Space , 425 Second St., #100, San Francisco
6:30 – 7:00 Arrive – mingle, nosh
7:00 – 7:30 Member announcements lightening round: share your passions, needs & gifts quickly

Our pilot projects consist of a series of schools that intercept refugees – usually orphans by that point, fleeing Burma and entering Thailand. We offer education instead of the multiple types of trafficking that await once a child enters Thailand without papers. These schools prevent everything from sexual slavery to careers as child soldiers.

2009 BURNING MAN SURVIVAL GUIDE invaluable information about making your Burning Man experience *primo*. Recommended Reading section

We received a great deal of feedback critical of the expanded size of the
2008 city, so it's "deja vu all over again" as we return to nearly the same,
smaller footprint of 2007, in the same BLM-mandated location of the Black
Rock Desert. The distance from the inner-most road to the Man is down from
2700 to just 2100 feet, so a hop, skip, and a jump should get you from theme
camp Esplanade frontage to the Man.

Empire store update from the Org: the store in the town of Empire
near our event is currently a shadow of it's former self, due to a
sudden and unexpected change in management some months ago.

Farmworkers who feed us panel on Sept. 10 at SF Ferry Bldg 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Panel: The Fruits of Their Labor
A panel about farmworkers and how your choices can support a just food system. Truly sustainable food is not only healthy, humane, and environmentally sound, it's socially just. In honor of Labor Day, CUESA is sponsoring a panel to highlight the workers who feed us. Four labor experts will tell success stories of advancing working conditions in the fields and discuss how concerned eaters can stand up for fair food. They'll also address questions such as: Who are our farm laborers, and what are their lives like? What can farm owners do to keep their workers safe and happy, without breaking the bank? The panel will be followed by a short reception with farmers' market snacks. The event is free (donations gladly accepted) and open to the public. Panelists:
Sandy Brown, co-owner of Swanton Berry Farm (the first organic farm to have a contract with the United Farm Workers) and UC Berkeley doctoral candidate researching the role of Fair Trade certification and labeling on agricultural labor practices
Alida Cantor of California Institute for Rural Studies, a nonprofit research organization focused on issues such as farm labor conditions, sustainable food systems, and rural health
Alegria De La Cruz, staff attorney for Center for Race, Poverty and the Environment, former directing attorney for California Rural Legal Assistance's Migrant Farmworker Project in Fresno, and daughter of farmworker union organizers
Maisie Greenawalt of Bon Appétit Management Company, which recently signed a ground-breaking tomato purchasing agreement with the Coalition of Imokalee Workers establishing labor requirements including fair wage, worker safety and worker empowerment stipulations.

9/11 Anniversary Freeway Blogging Friday, September 11, 2009, 7am

Bird Walk and White-crowned Sparrow Work party Sept 12
8am-Optional bird walk with Josiah Clark and other SF birders meet at bison paddock, visit chain of lakes and learn about both resident and migrant birds of the area.
9am-return to paddock at JFK for planting of coastal scrub plants.
Project Background and significance:
The Bison Paddock is a noteworthy historical and interpretive point of interest in Golden Gate Park. This location is noteworthy to birders and naturalists as it holds the last sizeable nesting population of Nutall’s White-crowned Sparrows in Golden Gate Park, a characteristic and recently declining species. This local, non-migratory population of the species sings song dialects unique to San Francisco as studied by Cal Academy’s Nobel nominated ornithologist, the late Louis Baptista. This is also the most open area of the park that is not a playing field.
Currently devoid of plantings, opportunities exist all around the edges of the bison enclosure (but especially in the strip along JFK) to increase nesting habitat for this vulnerable bird species. Efforts will likely significantly increase the breeding population of the species in this area. The Bison Paddock site receives lots of visitors so the process can be observed and appreciated by the visiting public.
Unlike the Presidio or NAP habitat stewardship, Golden Gate Park has no budget, no infrastructure nor special staff to deal with habitat related opportunities. It was said to me by staff recently, "without volunteers these projects cannot happen".
I can say with confidence this project will create significant habitat increases in 2-3 years, especially considering this area gets regular watering. We will see major increases in bird and insect diversity and abundance. The whole process will be highly visible for the public. It will even be audible in the unique dialects of our very special White-crowned Sparrows.
This is just one example of what is possible now in Golden Gate Park. Stay tuned for habitat restoration workdays specialized for birders and naturalists in the world famous Golden Gate Park! We will have scopes out and take the opportunity to observe and learn about birds, butterflies and other fauna that present themselves as we work to improve their habitat. Other potential wildlife habitat enhancement sites include Lloyd Lake and North Lake. Really hope to see you there. Please spread this to interested parties to gain support for this ecologically significant movement, as we showcase remaining habitat enhancement and native wildlife in our urban parks. Details:
Where: Golden Gate Park, Bison Paddock along JFK
When: Optional Birdwalk: 8am
Planting and Workday: 9am-12:30pm
Snack provided (and hopefully lunch too)
Volunteer liability waivers must be filled out before working.
Liam O'brien will lead an optional butterfly walk at the end of the day.
Bring: Binoculars if you have them, water bottle, work clothes
Thanks! Josiah Clark, Consulting Ecologist (415) 317 3978
