    For those of us who are members of KPFA, we've already endorsed a
position of NO on the recall of Tracy Rosenberg.  We agree with the
Oakland Greens' statement on this issue.  More details are in the URL

about the situation:


Title:  Speaking Out for Healthier Food: The Truth about GMOs
When:  Thursday, July 26, 6-9 pm
Location:  First Unitarian Universalist Church - Starr King Room,
  1187 Franklin St (at Geary), San Francisco
(This is not a Green-sponsored event, but should be of interest to our
members.  The SF Green Party has endorsed Prop 37, which would require
GMO labeling).

Ever wondered what's in your food? Approximately 75% of processed
foods in the US contain GMOs - also known as genetically modified
organisms, or genetically engineered foods - and most of us us eat
these on a daily basis without even knowing it. Why does it matter?
Join us to find out about the growing evidence of safety concerns from
experts John Robbins, Jeffrey M. Smith, and Dr. Myrto Ashe.

6:00pm - Refreshments, networking, and information tables
6:30pm - Live music from Fair Oaks-based musical group Glowbox
7:00pm - Speaking program

Panel Discussion:  Our Vanishing Civil Liberties
When: Sunday, July 29, 1-3 pm
Location:  Unitarian Universalist Center, San Francisco, CA

(This is not a Green-sponsored event, but should be of interest to our
members.)  There will be a panel discussion on the erosion of civil
liberties and what to do. Renewal of the 2012 National Defense
Authorization Act, allowing indefinite detention without charge, is
being debated this summer.

Under the 2012 NDAA, the government can arrest you without charges,
hold you indefinitely without trial, deny you a lawyer, and send you
abroad to be imprisoned or tortured, based only on suspicion of
association with terrorist groups.

Donate online!

We recently switched to a new payment processor, which makes it easier
to donate securely online, while keeping more of our donations going
to help our cause rather than ending up in the hands of Wall Street.
