"Venezuelan Author to Speak in Marin"

Sept. 3, 2005

Eva Golinger will be the guest speaker at the annual fundraising dinner sponsored by Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas, Saturday, September 3.
A Venezuelan-American attorney, Ms.Golinger specializes in international human rights and immigration law. In October 2004 she obtained top secret documents, declassified under the Freedom of Information Act, that demonstrate the U.S. government’s prior knowledge of and complicity in the April 2002 coup d’etat against President Chavez.

Anonymous Queer Comrade writes

"The 9th Queeruption event will take place in Tel-Aviv in August 2006>

In the last Queeruption* in Barcelona there was a proposal by present Israeli queers to hold the next Queeruption in Tel-Aviv, which was welcome by activists from the Middle East, Europe and North America. The initiative came from our belief that as queers we view ourselves as part of the global struggle for freedom, justice and self determination.

Thousands of LGBT people are expected to attend the World Pride event in Jerusalem in August 2006. This event is also used as a chance for the Israeli office of foreign affairs to hide the government’s war crimes behind a rainbow flag. The slogan of the World Pride Parade is “Love Without Borders”. We believe that love without borders should reject fences and walls, occupation, Apartheid, social injustice and ecological destruction. There has been a global call to boycott this event by various Palestine solidarity groups as well. We feel that it is important to push our solidarity further by coming to Israel and Palestine for a celebration of our diversity, empowerment and resistance.

This is the first time that Queeruption takes place outside the borders of rich western states. This Queeruption will also extend beyond the centralized location in Tel-Aviv, to the West Bank and to spice up the World Pride parade in Jerusalem. There are also possibilities for people interested in staying longer to join solidarity work in the area which we will provide links to. There will be also a group who will come to Tel-Aviv some time before the event to help set things up.

Given the social and cultural situation there are a lot of issues to be considered and discussed during the preparation process and through the event. We need your help, whether you are coming or not, with fundraising, publicity, knowledge, ideas and skills or on ground preparation.

Enrollment info for Continental Drift Seminar with Brian Holmes

Part I -- Sept, (12) and (15-18)

Part II -- Oct (20-24).

at 16 Beaver

Continental Drift is a modular and experimental seminar that will attempt to embark upon the "impossible" task of articulating the immense
geopolitical and economic shifts which took place between 1989-2001, the effects of those changes on the emerging bodies of governance (i.e., the formation of economic blocs like EU or NAFTA) and in turn the effects on subjectivity. Having witnessed the incredible vibrancy of social
movements which took hold in that same period, the seminar acknowledges that new modes of control and channeling of various flows have merited a shift in tactics and strategies. The question of "what now?" is precisely at the core of our study. "The goal, then, is to map out the majority models of self and group within each of the emerging continental systems, to see how they function within the megamachines of production and conquest – and at the same time, to cross the normative borders they put into effect, in order to trace microcartographies of difference, dissent, deviance and refusal.


Over the past year we have seen a number of events take place in New Jersey that has raised the concern that there are people involved with racist/white supremacist groups that want to angle themselves into some position of power. Some try to go under the radar while others are open about their agenda. An anti-racist convergence will be held August 27, 2005 starting at 11:30 at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Essex County 35/47 Cleveland Street, Orange, New Jersey 07050. Among the discussions will be on the recent activity of racist groups in the state of New Jersey. This convergence will be an opportunity to meet with and hear from those who want to try to fight these particular elements.

This event is open to the public, and is expected to bring people from all over the state to participate. The gathering will be in two parts. The first part will be a panel discussion where invited speakers will speak and take questions about concerns such as racist activity in the state, police brutality, hatred towards Arab/Muslim members of our communities, and the campaign among the right against them, issues related to the gay community, and the fight against the anti-immigration effort that has heated up with efforts like the Minuteman Project. Speakers are to be announced shortly. The second part will be a show featuring a number of musical acts, some that were slated to perform at an anti-racist benefit show in Wayne, NJ that was shut down after pressure from white supremacists in the state.

There will be a donation asked for at the door, and proceeds from this event will be to benefit North Jersey Anti-Racist Action and One People's Project, two well-known anti-racist groups in the state. Organizations are encouraged to table during the event as well.
