[SDCPJ] Anti-militarist Web site recently updated

This is to let you know that NEW articles and updated content have recently been posted at, the Web site of the San Diego-based Committee Opposed to Militarism and the Draft (COMD).
Included in the current update are three articles from the latest issue of COMD's printed newsletter, Draft NOtices:

- "ROTC and the Seduction of Liberal Militarism," by military veteran Sean Dinces, provides a powerful rebuttal to arguments in favor of having ROTC in colleges.

- "The Peace Symbol: Fashion or Political Statement?," by Nancy Cruz and Paula Hoffman-Villanueva, explores the growing popularity of the peace symbol among teenagers and analyzes their answers to a survey on what it means to them.
- "Activists Shut Down 'Army Experience Center'," by Pat Elder, describes the successful campaign to close down this expensive, high-tech military recruiting experiment.
In addition to the above three articles, the current printed version includes a form for high school students to opt out before schools release their contact information to recruiters, a commentary on children and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and a review of an important upcoming school board election.

[zmoc] New Meetup: Press Release: "Response to the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico"

Announcing a new Meetup for Zeitgeist Movement Orange County!

What: Press Release: "Response to the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico"

When: Friday, May 13, 2011 12:00 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

(Venus, Florida- May 12rd, 2010) On the Gulf Coast of the United States the shock is now setting in for millions of American citizens as we now realize the true extent of the damage caused by our desire for obsolete and dangerous fossil fuels, and our perpetuation of an outdated monetary world society, where the bottom line has always been profit at all costs, be it human or environmental. It is time for a viable solution to deal with a system hardwired for self destruction.

It is with that very unfortunate introduction that we, The Zeitgeist Movement, now must enter the international conversation to express the need for true change. That word is not some jingoist slogan devised by a focus group, but the evident desire of the public for a meaningful transition out of the destructive legacy, the burden of our past mistakes as a maturing civilization. We only have one Earth; there is no reset button here.

We must break out of our established ideologies that have prevented progress. Ending the political duality, economic stratification and false divisions is key to overcoming our apparent historical bondage that says
the future we were promised must remain an elusive dream. We must now rethink our society and outgrow those parts of it that serve to paralyze us.

As of Friday, April 30th it was reported by CBS News (US) that the spill had spread to cover 2,100 square miles and was still spilling at a rate up to 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons) a day. As of today, there has been no progress in stopping this catastrophe. This did not have to happen. It happened because we continue to use an obsolete technology for the sake of maintaining a profitable establishment. An establishment that perpetuates vast inequality in its wages to its employees versus its core owners,
destroys fragile and vital eco-systems, and pollutes our air.

It is time for real change, not empty promises. No amount of socialism or free market ideology will save us from ourselves, there needs to be a fundamental re-write of what we think we know, to achieve a sustainable human enterprise.

Our generation has stood and watched as our planet has been raped and pillaged, yet we do nothing. Our generation has stood and watched as our government bailed out the very people who created this economic crisis, yet we do nothing. Our generation has stood and watched as our rights have been stripped away from us, and yet we do nothing. Our generation has stood and watched as we have been handed the problems of the countless generations before it, and we are preparing to do the same to the next generation, and we do nothing.

Let us be the first generation to hand solutions to our children and our children's children. But we can't do it alone. Let us break down the barriers we have created amongst ourselves. We need all of you, every last
one, to say enough is enough in one voice. Not as Americans or Russians, Christians or Muslims, but as fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters. Let us destroy the lines between us and work to create a world where our children are truly safe and free. Let us create a world where we can tell our children that they can be and do whatever their heart desires, and know deep inside us we are telling them the truth. Let our generation be the one.

We have the tools, we have the knowledge, we have the technology. It is time we make the transition to a world, an economy, and a future we all deserve regardless of geographic location or economic disposition. As long as we rely on legacy systems defined in a 19th century mentality all we will do is spin our wheels while a parade of economic and ecologic disasters visits us again and again. It is time to pull the plug on this charade because as you will find out, there is a better way.

We, the Zeitgeist Movement representatives, reach out to you so that we can all work together to do what must be done. Every man, woman and child has a voice, but together we can create one voice so deafening that no one will have a choice but to listen. But it requires you. It requires you put away
preconceived notions you have been told about "the way things are" as if it is the only way, because it's not! Our way of thinking will no longer sustain us. We can either remain in the house of cards we have built and watch it collapse all around us, or we can, through the best our society has to offer, begin to construct a stable mature and thriving society so that the Gulf Coast Oil Spill, the Exxon Valdez and many others are nothing more then an embarrassing footnote in history.

The choice is yours.

[Blackwater] Mon. 5/17: Jeremy Scahill at Caltech in Pasadena at 7:30PM

 The Caltech Y Social Activism Speaker Series presents

Independent Journalist & Author of the International Best-Seller:
"Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army"

7:30 PM, Monday, May 17, 2010
Ramo Auditorium, (Bldg 77)


1200 East California Boulevard
Pasadena, CA 91125-0001

Free, no tickets required.

** Reception after the event with the speaker **

On September 16, 2007, machine gun fire erupted in Baghdad's Nisour Square leaving seventeen Iraqi civilians dead, among them women and children. The shooting spree, labeled "Baghdad's Bloody Sunday," was neither the work of Iraqi insurgents nor U.S. soldiers. The shooters were private forces working for the secretive mercenary company, Blackwater Worldwide.

This is the explosive story of a company that rose a decade ago from Moyock, North Carolina, to become one of the most powerful players in the "War on Terror." In his gripping bestseller, award winning journalist Jeremy Scahill takes us from the bloodied streets of Iraq to hurricane-ravaged New Orleans to the chambers of power in Washington, to expose Blackwater as the frightening new face of the U.S. war machine.

BIO: Jeremy Scahill is the author of "Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army," named by AlterNet as the best progressive book of the year. He is a frequent contributor to The Nation magazine, where he reports on Iraq war contractors, and a correspondent for the national radio and TV program Democracy Now! He is currently a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute.

Scahill has won numerous awards for his reporting, including the prestigious George Polk Award, which he won twice. While a correspondent for Democracy Now!, Scahill reported extensively from Iraq through both the Clinton and Bush administrations. Traveling around the hurricane zone in the wake of Katrina, Jeremy Scahill exposed the presence of Blackwater forces in New Orleans and his reporting sparked a Congressional inquiry and an internal Department of Homeland Security investigation.

He has appeared on ABC World News, CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, CNN, MSNBC, PBS's The NewsHour, Bill Moyers Journal and is a frequent guest on other radio and TV programs nationwide. Scahill also served as an election correspondent for HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher.

This event is made possible by the generous support from the Moore Hufstedler Fund, Student Affairs, the Graduate Student Council, the Alumni Association, and the Caltech Y. For more information about this event or the SASS series, please contact the Caltech Y at 626.395.6163 or email

Al-Awda Los Angeles, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition is calling for a second demonstration on Friday the 4th of June @ 4 pm in front of the Zionist consulate, 6830 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles.

We are calling for a complete lifting of the Gaza Siege and upon the Obama administration to join the world body in condemning Israel's deadly attack in international waters on a convoy of unarmed international peace activists bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza. At least 19 of the activists were killed and over 60 were wounded by the attacking Zionist force.
It is imperative that the three-year-old siege on Gaza be lifted immediately, and that all the activists are released as soon as possible.
We demand that Israel be held accountable for its violations of international law.

Please do your best to attend and help us by forwarding this announcement to your families & friends.

    [SDCPJ] Del Mar: Cruel As Ever /Protest August 28!

    From the San Diego Animal Defense Team
    For the first time in the history of the Del Mar horse races, four members of the San Diego Animal Defense Team successfully infiltrated Opening Day AKA Hat Day on July 21, wearing large hats protesting the cruelty of horse racing.

    The team officially entered the Opening Day hat contest, sponsored by track officials and billed as "The One and Only Truly Fabulous Hats Contest." They then joined the Parade of Hats, potentially exposing thousands of horse race fans to creative visuals of the cruel reality of racing.

    Each hat was individually crafted. One featured "My Pretty (Dead) Pony." Another boldly stated "Racing Kills." The third was topped with three dead horses and a tombstone engraved with  "Del Mar 2009 -- 13 horses dead / 2010 -- ???" The fourth hat featured a prominent banner: "Remembering the valiant horses who gave their lives for 'sport,' " trimmed with ghost horses with targets on them.

    The Animal Defense Team has scheduled its annual protest outside of the track entrance. PLEASE JOIN US! EVERONE IS WELCOME AND NEEDED! Bring signs, water and your compassion for the victims of an industry based on greed, drugging, deception and death. This is the third annual ADT protest at the Del Mar Races.

    Saturday, August 28, 2010
    11:30 AM - 1 PM
    This is the $1 Million Pacific Classic Day,
    the biggest purse of the season. Post time is at 1 PM

    The intersection of Jimmy Durante Blvd. and Via de la Valle,
    under the Del Mar marquee at the corner.

    The losers of Del Mar's richest "betting" day will far outweigh the winners and death is imminent. Seven out of ten horses are slaughtered in the U.S., not because they are in pain, suffering or living with a terminal illness -- they are slaughtered because their owners don't want them anymore. For the thoroughbred, the risk of death is greater if they are injured or they finish last where the turf meets the surf in Del Mar. If your favorite horse doesn't make a good showing in the race, chances are the next stop is the slaughterhouse.

    Information: and the Racehorse Memorial Wall

    The San Diego Animal Defense Team denounces all forms of "animal entertainment" for human pleasure. Whips, beatings, starvation and isolation are all a part of "training" an animal for human command and control. There is nothing exciting about suffering and pain.
    Please do not support animal entertainment
    of any kind, beginning with horse racing.

    Drug Policy Alliance
    We Are the Drug Policy Alliance.
    Take Action!

    Dear Walter,

    The DEA's vendetta against medical marijuana patients and providers keeps getting more and more infuriating.

    Mendocino County, California passed a new medical marijuana ordinance this year that allows local growers to apply for a cultivation permit with the sheriff.  But earlier this month, the DEA swooped in and raided the home of the program's first applicant.  Agents took money and property but made no arrests.

    What a slap in the face to the local government!  The DEA has gone too far, and President Obama needs to replace Acting Administrator Michele Leonhart. 

    The president has directed federal officials to stop wasting time and money on medical marijuana prosecutions.  Yet even though Leonhart is blatantly flouting his directive, he's nominated her to become the permanent head of the DEA.

    Together with our allies in the movement to end marijuana prohibition, we're calling on President Obama to withdraw her nomination.  Our whole movement is united and working together to demand a DEA administrator who respects the right of patients to use their legal, doctor-recommended medicine.  Will you join us?

    The raid in Mendocino County is part of a disturbing trend.  DEA agents have raided four other medical marijuana providers in the past few weeks.  The timing is hardly coincidental — California voters could pass a ballot initiative in November that would make marijuana legal throughout the state, and I suspect the DEA is conducting the raids to intimidate growers and activists.

    President Obama has called federal medical marijuana raids a waste of resources.  Yet his nominee continues to relentlessly harass patients and providers.  If she refuses to respect the administration's stated principles, the president needs to find a new nominee who will. 

    Tell the president to withdraw Michele Leonhart's nomination for DEA administrator.
