Vigil for the Elk
@ Bear Valley Visitor Center,
Pt. Reyes National Park.
Join fellow elk, wildlife and national park fans to inform an unsuspecting public of NPS plans to shoot hundreds of wild tule elk, requested by for-profit cattle ranchers.
Over 5,200 privately owned cattle graze on approximately 1/3rd of the 71,055 acres of public land comprising Point Reyes National Seashore (PRNS)  a National Park in westernmost Marin County, CA, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
These beef and dairy cows at PRNS comprise the largest commercial cattle operations inside any National Park in America. Today these ranchers want to expand their operations to include pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys and row crops. Even more distrubing, they are lobbying the National Park Service (NPS) to kill hundreds of recently re-established wild tule elk. Ranchers claim the park's 500 elk compete for grazing land and water with&their over 5,200 cattle  roughly 10x the elk population.
Remember, Pt. Reyes is a National Park, chartered to afford the greatest protections for Americas wild animal's not for private, for-profit businesses.

The Portal Film Screenings
A unique cinematic experience created to inspire humankind
THE PORTAL is a unique cinematic experience exploring the role crisis plays in our evolutionand the mental programs were born into. This experiential documentary brings to life the stories of six people who have all used yoga and meditation to move beyond trauma.
An unusual blend of technology, love, human potential, philosophy, brain hacking, stillness and inner peace, THE PORTAL is a film that humanity needs Right Now. Filming took place in a Syrian refugee camp, the USA, Canada, Australia, and Indonesia over three years from 2016 to 2018 and the resulting film has such a strong emotional grip that audiences will be talking about it long after the credits finish rolling.
Opening hearts and minds to a new way forward, this powerful and genre-defining approach to personal change invite all 7 billion people to make an enlightened planet possible by entering THE PORTAL.
In addition to the 4 pm and 7 pm shows in Berkeley on November 3, the film will also screen in Sebastopol on November 4 at the Rialto Cinemas Sebastopol, in San Rafael also on November 4 at the Smith Rafael Film Center, and in San Francisco on November 5 at the Roxie Theater. All screenings will feature filmmaker Q&A after the film. They will be joined by one of the film's experts Dr. Julia Mossbridge in Sebastopol, and by one of the film's subjects, Dr. James Doty in San Francisco.

3rd is San Francisco International South Asian Film Festival 2019

November 7-10, New People Cinema and Castro Theatre, San Francisco
November 16, Palo Alto Arts Center, Palo Alto

Come celebrate 3rd i's seventeenth annual SF International South Asian Film Festival (Bollywood and Beyond) with some of the best cinema from India, Sri Lanka, UK and the USA. This years festival lends an ear to Young voices, capturing both intergenerational relationships, and stories of youth coming-of-age in rural areas and in megacities. Humor takes centerstage in stories of stand-up comics, and in our signature shorts program which uses satire to address pressing social issues from the border wall to colorism. This years festival is brimming with cutting-edge indie narratives: from gripping and compassionate stories of addiction, to up-and-coming filmmakers of Bengali cinema and the Assamese New Wave, to a searing and masterful period drama on caste conflict from Sri Lanka. As always, California filmmakers and Womens stories shine bright!

EATING IN CLIMATE CHAOS
The Secret to Solving Climate Change Is Buried Underground
Manny's
3092 16th St., San Francisco
Join us: Tickets are free!
Good farming isnt just important for creating delicious food and healthy communities. In the past few years, scientists have confirmed that it has the potential to slow climate change, and possibly even reverse it. When restaurant owners Karen Leibowitz and Anthony Myint, and rancher Loren Poncia, heard about this science, they dropped what they were doing and changed the way they operated their businesses. Now local governments and major corporations are jumping on board. Can carbon farming bring global warming to its knees?
Join the Maddie Oatman and Kiera Butler from Mother Jones' food politics podcast, "Bite", to discuss how the secret to solving climate change is buried underground, with chefs Anthony Myint and Karen Liebowitz, rancher Loren Poncia, and Executive Director of Project Drawdown Jonathan Foley. Fun food trivia and prizes will also be provided!

SF Bay vs. Trump: Stop the Dredging
Pinole Library 2935 Pinole Valley Rd
Pinole, CA 94564
The Trump administration has proposed to dredge a deeper channel through the San Francisco Bay and Carquinez Strait to import more dirty crude oil to polluting refineries in the area.
At a time when we need to be phasing out fossil fuels, this project does just the opposite. It would pump up production at refineries, multiply the risk of oil spills, threaten marine life, and dramatically increase carbon emissions and toxic pollution. We can't let that happen.
The Army Corps of Engineers is holding a public meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 13 to hear public comments on the proposal to dredge the bay.

Brasil Solidarity Network invites all of you to join us for our November action as we honor and lift up the life of recently slain Guardian of the Forest, Paulo Paulino Guajajara. Paulo was murdered on Friday while he was in the jungle gathering water. We send our love and prayers to all the land defendors, water protectors sky protectors and guardians of life who put their lives on the line every day for what they know is the truth and right.
Were teaming up with Colombia Conexion this month to honor the many many defenders who have been murdered in Colombia! We will be painting our mural at the Brasilian Consulate and lifting up Paulo and denouncing the murders of land defenders!!! We then, once the paint is dry, will be marching around the corner to the Colombian Consulate and doing the whole thing (not mural) all over again!!! Borders mean nothing and solidarity means everything. From Brasil to Colombia to the Bay we stand.
Colombia is among the three most dangerous countries for the defense of the land. Since the signing of the Peace Accords in 2016, at least 700 social leaders, mostly Afro-Colombian and Indigenous activists, have been murdered in Colombia, according to the Institute for Development and Peace Studies.

Help get strong restrictions on 5G + other wireless radiation in Berkeley
As goes Berkeley, so goes the nation (sometimes. If not, let there at least be safe islands of sanity as in 20 other Ca cities.)
Attorney J. Kramer, who kow tows to Big Telecom, is updating Berkeleys telecom law.
It may be on the City Council agenda Tues Nov 19, plus Dec 3 &/or 10. Please attend and speak during public comment. Meetings begin at 6pm at 1231 Addison St. (x Bonar.)
Ask them to commit to all of WiREDs KEY POINTS to restrict wireless to only what is needed in Berkeley. Coverage here is fine!
We want telecom companies to be required to hold a public hearing before submitting each application, so neighbors get a heads up before the shotclock starts.
We want EMF/RF radiation unannounced testing required twice annually by an independent expert and all ancillary equipment to be undergrounded at industry expense.
BAN 5G, at least from residential neighborhoods. Require 1500 foot setbacks elsewhere, and between antennas. CONDITIONAL laws, permits, and recertifications only!

South San Francisco Film Screening: The Food Cure
Nick's Kitchen
223 Grand Avenue, South San Francisco, California 94080

THE FOOD CURE is a feature-length documentary that explores the most extreme claims made about nutrition. Can a particular diet really alleviate or even reverse serious diseases like cancer? The film follows the experiences of six cancer patients who choose a plant-based nutritional treatment in lieu of chemotherapy and radiation. It accompanies them over a period of more than five years, no matter what the outcome. Intimate and unflinchingly honest, this deeply moving documentary shows the astonishing feats that can be achieved with nutrition, while also portraying the obstacles and daily struggles patients experience as they attempt to eat and juice their way back to health.
