[SDCPJ] FW: [isosandiego] Open Letter to the Community: Why We Are Sitting In Tomorrow (FORWARD WIDELY)
As we hope you have already heard, members of SAME and others in our community are rallying to the side of our friends Tyler & Tony Dylan-Hyde, and Michael Anderson & Brian Baumgardner, and anyone else wanting to get married on Thursday morning (tomorrow) at 8:00am to demand that the clerk issue the licenses entitled to them under California law once the stay on Judge Walker's decision is lifted tonight at 5:00pm. But many may be confused about what our real objective is—Do we really think we're going to get these people married?
I've received calls from people in the community who had the mistaken assumption that we are going in to the Clerk's Office on Thursday with the intention and desire to get arrested by San Diego County Sheriffs. Certainly we are aware that by challenging the clerks to exercise a right that appears for some to still be in legal limbo means that authorities may feel entitled to arrest us for "disturbing the peace", or some other ironically-named charge. And of course it is the case that getting arrested has resulted in needed attention for civil rights in the past and even in our present time. But it is not our objective to be arrested on Thursday afternoon. What we want is to force open the floodgates of civil rights for same-sex couples, so that our friends Tyler & Tony, and Brian & Michael and anyone else who wishes, can be allowed to get their licenses on that day.
Who says we can? For us, the question is rather who says we can't. Numerous sources have cited the fact that nowhere in the law does it specify that the Attorney General and Governor, who have emphatically refused to defend Prop 8, must be compelled to comply with a stay by a higher-circuit court while our opposition is given a chance to prove that they have the standing to make an appeal to Judge Walker's decision. If anything, some legal precedent seems to indicate that the state of California has the right and duty to enforce its own laws while a court of appeals holds hearings to determine any standing by any parties opposing a legal decision.
When Prop 8 passed, same-sex marriages stopped immediately. There was no "stay" on the new ban, even while the ACLU pursued our case to challenge Prop 8's constitutionality to the California Supreme Court (filed the very day after the passage of Prop 8, on November 5, 2008). It seems to us that while the National Organization for Marriage pursues its appeal to the 9th Circuit Court, our state's clerks have no reason to continue to deny Californians our rights to equal protection under the law, and our access to the same civil right to marriage. On the contrary, they should begin granting marriage licenses, as Judge Walker's decision so clearly mandates, as soon as his stay is lifted on Thursday.
That's why SAME members, and others in the community with us, are going in to the Clerk's Office at 8:00am this Thursday: Our objective is to persuade the clerks in San Diego and everywhere else in the state to comply with Judge Walker's August 4th ruling, and begin issuing marriage licenses immediately. We invite the community to join us; the bigger we are, the stronger. Let's get Brian & Michael, and Tyler & Tony married, and let's do it now. As has been repeated over and over in the last weeks, the opposition has been unable to provide any evidence that heterosexual couples are harmed by same-sex couples' right to marry. So what are we waiting for?
In the words of SAME member Gabe Conaway last year, "We're not here to break the law--but there's a law here that's breaking us." Those of us going in tomorrow need your support. There will also be a rally outside on the West side of the County Administration Building. Join us in rallying or sitting in by RSVP'd to our facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=125874937458223&ref=mf. For details and a legal debrief about sitting in with us, contact Michael Anderson at 954-648-1984.

[SDCPJ] Starbase: another DoD program to militarize children
DoD STARBASE is a premier educational program, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. At DoD STARBASE students participate in challenging "hands-on, mind-on" activities in aviation, science, technology, engineering, math, and space exploration. They interact with military personnel to explore careers and make connections with the "real world." The program provides students with 20-25 hours of stimulating experiences at National Guard, Navy, Marine, Air Force Reserve and Air Force bases across the nation.
By exposing youth to the technological environments and positive role models found on military bases and installations, we will provide 20-25 hours of exemplary instruction, using a common core curriculum that meets or exceeds the national standards. We will nurture a winning network of collaborators and build mutual loyalty.

[SDCPJ] Demand Marriage Licenses NOW! Monday, Aug 16 Cnty Admin Bldg
At the County Clerk's Office, they will demand a marriage license. Judge Walker's ruling was so eloquent that it must be enacted. Michael, Brian and their wedding party intend to sit-in until the licenses are issued. Pleasejoin us inside, or rally outside the County Clerk's Office in support--Brian, Michael, other California want you to join us in this rally of support for the right to marry in California.
On the day after Prop 8 was approved by a slim majority in California, county clerks immediately stopped issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Why is it that those same Californians have to wait now that the ban has been overturned and ruled unconstitutional?
We won't wait, marriage is everyone's right.
Justice delayed is justice denied!

Illegal to Grow Our Own Food
Trade, Sell Homegrown Food
SB S510 MayAllow Government
To Put You In Jail ....
By Steve Green
S510 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. (http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510 )
"If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public's right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one's choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God." It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food." ~ Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower.
Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto's Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create without judicial review if it passes.
S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food AND FARMING.
In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton's HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization "WTO") meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP.
In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband's firm lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.
S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.
1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan.
2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security. It would end the Uruguay Round Agreement Act of 1994, which put US sovereignty and US law under perfect protection. Instead, S 510 says:
COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS.
Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.
3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into "the United States." Since under that law, the US is a corporate entity and not a location, "entry of food into the US" covers food produced anywhere within the land mass of this country and "entering into" it by virtue of being produced.
4. It imposes Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements. Its bizarre history and its expected impact in limiting access to adequate nutrition (while mandating GM food, GM animals, pesticides, hormones, irradiation of food, etc.) threatens all safe and organic food and health itself, since the world knows now it needs vitamins to survive, not just to treat illnesses.
5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security. See Seeds How to criminalize them, for more details.
6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals. The UN is participating through the WHO, FAO, WTO, and World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in allowing mass slaughter of even heritage breeds of animals and without proof of disease. Biodiversity in farm animals is being wiped out to substitute genetically engineered animals on which corporations hold patents. Animal diseases can be falsely declared. S 510 includes the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), despite its corrupt involvement in the H1N1 scandal, which is now said to have been concocted by the corporations.
7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production put it in corporate hands and worsen food safety.
8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy. It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies, out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer. The chance to rebuild the economy based on farming, ranching, gardens, food production, natural health, and all the jobs, tools and connected occupations would be eliminated.
9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs. This would industrialize every farm in the US, eliminate local organic farming, greatly increase global warming from increased use of oil- based products and long-distance delivery of foods, and make food even more unsafe. The five items listed the Five Pillars of Food Safety are precisely the items in the food supply which are the primary source of its danger.
10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be imposed; postpones defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties to be applied. It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review.

[SDCPJ] Internet Broadcast: San Diego Discussion About Afghanistan
Pass this on:
LIVE this Monday evening, August 9, 7 PM Pacific daylight time, an Internet broadcast:
San Diego Community Discussion on Afghanistan
After WikiLeaks, increased casualties, disengagement by NATO allies, and U.S. delays in U.S. troop withdrawals, what now for the Afghan war? What is the U.S. doing there, what is the cost, and is this cost in "blood and treasure" justified in any way? Is Pakistan being destabilized by the military occupation next door? Are there connections between this prolonged, terrible engagement and other ills in the U.S. and internationally?
These questions will be on the table Monday, Aug. 9, at a San Diego airing of the 72 minute film "Rethink Afghanistan," followed by a community discussion session. The San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice (www.sdcpj.org), San Diego Veterans for Peace (www.sdvfp.org) and San Diego Vietnam Veterans Against the War (http://vvawsandiego.angelfire.com/HQ.html) together are hosting this event, at 7 PM at the San Diego Church of the Brethren, 3850 Westgate Place, San Diego 92105.
