January 2010 Left Hook

Left Hook

By Walter Davis

Symbiotic Environmental Management

It is unlikely that many in this country would intentionally choose to deposit waste material in their water and then drink it. That is the prevailing choice with fossil fuel burning vehicles that spew toxic gases in the air at baby stroller level, as they travel down our neighborhood avenues.

Have you heard any dialogue on the topic of symbiotic environmental management from our politicians? Perhaps you have not. A short visit to www.opensecrets.org will reveal that our politicians have been paid off not to implement ethical environmental management strategies. Hence, one hears little discussion of symbiosis; a method of using natural environmental energy sources while not harming life. This involves thermal, solar, wind, wave, and solar power generation.

Traveling north on interstate 15 from San Diego, one can see the ribbons of concrete and construction vehicles engaged in building a freeway that is already obsolete. Instead of a solar powered monorail or levitation railway, we have conduits for fossil fuel burning dinosaurs called internal combustion cars. This makes the tire, concrete, petroleum and internal combustion engine industries very happy.

This inadequate freeway system is incapable of efficiently supporting the current population of San Diego County today, much less, what it will be in years to come.

According to documents obtained by visiting www.JimBell.com, if only half the roof tops and parking lots of the city were covered with solar panels, San Diego would be self-sufficient in electric energy production and become an energy exporter. Instead we have an ignorant plan to import liquid gas from the south Pacific into Mexico to fuel electric generators. The carbon footprint generated by the ships transporting this liquid gas and then the energy used to pump this gas from Mexico to the United States highlights this flawed plan. This makes SDG&E happy and keeps the citizens of San Diego paying high utility bills. www.SolarSavesAmerica.com gives a glimpse of what could happen with electric cars.

The thought of piping water to the beach is ludicrous. That is exactly what is done when water is pumped from the Colorado River to San Diego. Safe methods of obtaining water from the sea without harming marine life are available. Solar powered reverse osmosis filtering plants could make San Diego an exporter of water while cutting costs for residents and businesses alike. Salts from filtered sea water and minerals from waste water could be harvested and used. See the videos at http://www.thevenusproject.com and http://sdmegacoalition.blogspot.com/

Millions of living wage paying green jobs could be created by developing symbiotic energy systems; while making us independent from Middle Eastern oil.

This country is going bankrupt financing needless wars over energy that could be easily obtained using symbiosis right here at home. The movie Avatar shows the folly of destroying other cultures over their natural resources as this country is poised to do in Yemen, Iraq and elsewhere.

Partisan bickering, corporate control of government and constant warfare must be brought to a halt. The citizens of the United States must demand responsible stewardship of our resources in the interest of survival, against corporate interests.

[SDCPJ] Important Copenhagen Climate Change Summit coverage

Much is happening on this important issue, yet the U.S. media is not
covering the Climate Summit well at all.

Please check out Democracy Now www.democracynow.org

Another good source is the organization www.350.org They have daily
summaries and great pictures of demonstrations, etc. (The 350 in their
name stands for the 350 parts per million is what many scientists,
climate experts, and progressive national governments are now saying is
the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere.)

[SDCPJ] Year correction: Creating a Culture of Peace Workshop March 2010

This is a re-send.  Correct dates is March 10-13 2010

Creating a Culture of Peace - - -

Nonviolence Training for Personal and Social Change

Basic Training in San Diego, Mar 10-13, 2010

 

Creating a Culture of Peace (CCP) is a nationwide nonviolence training program for community peacemaking that includes local follow-up projects. In February 2009, 30 local peacemakers completed CCP Basic Training in San Diego. 

The goal of one follow-up project that came out of the San Diego CCP Basic Training is to create a San Diego CCP community including trained local facilitators.  A CCP Facilitator Training is planned for fall 2010 in San Diego.  Basic Training is a pre-requisite to Facilitator Training and becoming a CCP Trainer.  

CCP is an incubator for communities to raise issues of concern and plan action projects that effect change.  It is founded on the nonviolence principles of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and Dorothy Day. 

CCP training analyzes social change and builds practical skills to address injustice and violence without resorting to violence.  Its experiential and popular education approach draws out the wisdom, knowledge and experience of participants. This is the kind of training which so effectively prepared civil rights and labor activists.  

CCP emphasizes two forms of nonviolence.  Constructive Nonviolence involves creating the alternative culture we desire by developing new relationships, new practices, and new institutions.  Nonviolent Resistance involves tactics designed to protest, and even to interfere with, injustice and oppression. 

Our CCP Basic Training is scheduled for March 10-13, 2010  [Details: 5:30-9:00 pm 3 evenings, Weds Mar 10; Thurs Mar 11; Fri Mar12; and 8:30 am – 9:00 pm All Day Saturday Mar 13] Cost is $100.  Sliding scale and scholarships are available.

Local co-sponsors are Peace Resource Center (PRC) of San Diego, United African American Ministerial Action Council (UAAMAC), and Veterans for Peace, San Diego.  Host is UAAMAC, 4981 Market St, San Diego.

For more information about the CCP Basic Training or becoming a CCP Facilitator contact Carroll Boone, carrollboone@gmail.com, 619-697-3223.  www.creatingacultureofpeace.org .

[SDCPJ] Ground Zero Players needs you!




Food and Supply Drive Now through January 9

 
The Animal Defense Team (ADT)  of Ground Zero Players is gathering donations for homeless pets (primarily dogs) and their human companions who are living on the streets of downtown San Diego. Can you help?
 
Suggestions:
For dogs: food, bedding, collars, leashes, treats, dog sweaters
For humans: socks, nonperishable food, water, toiletries, blankets, sleeping bags, tarps, coats, raingear, gloves, hats
 
San Diego Pet Supply, 1490 Island Ave., downtown, 619-263-2211, has generously agreed to let you drop off donations there during business hours. Or contact us directly at keafs2@yahoo.com or groundzeroplayers@yahoo...com
 
The SD Police Department has conducted recent raids of downtown homeless, allegedly seizing personal possessions including treasured family photos, prescription medicines and blankets. As of now, the ACLU has put their lawsuit against the city for this action on hold, pending talks with the City Attorney. The city has maintained they will not destroy the property until after negotiations with the ACLU.
 
It is winter. It is raining. People and animals are suffering as you read this.
 
The National Coalition on the Homeless says 5 - 20% of homeless people have pets, mostly dogs. Some owned them before they became homeless. Others have adopted strays along the way. The vast majority of shelters do not accept pets, which forces folks to choose between shelter and abandoning their dogs. With the current economy, we can all imagine a time when this could be any one of us. What would you do?
 
Together, we can make a real difference. Please help.

“Jesús, María, y José: ¡Presente!”

 

La Tradicional Posada

¡Bienvenidos! Las grandes religiones del mundo celebran la hospitalidad al extranjero como una expresión de la verdadera fe. En La Posada recordamos el relato de la Biblia, en que José y María, extranjeros en Belén, tuvieron que buscar refugio la noche en que Jesús nació. Esta tradición se celebra a través de las Américas. Hoy día, cuando tantos inmigrantes a los Estados Unidos están sujetos al abuso y al ataque, nuestra celebración es aún más importante.

Doble a la derecha en la Monument Road. Hasta llegar a la entrada del Parque.

 

$5 dolares por vehichulo.

Todos estarán sujetos a inspección por autoridades fronterizos.  Traigan con uds. identificación y asegúrense que sus vehículos estén registrados.  

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Posada Tradition

Welcome! All the world's great religions recognize hospitality for the stranger as a sign of mature faith. La Posada is a re-enactment of the Bible story of Mary and Joseph who, while sojourners in Bethlehem, were forced to seek shelter on the night of Jesus' birth. It is a venerated Christmas tradition across the Americas. In our time,  when the idea of welcoming the stranger -- and immigrants themselves -- are so much under attack, our binational celebration takes on added significance. At the 16th annual La Posada Without Borders, we join with our friends from Tijuana as brothers and sisters in one human family. All are welcome.
