The result is a legacy of prejudice and paternalism that is deeply embedded in the social consciousness.     Address: 3075 Adeline Street, Suite 210, Berkeley CA 94703     Voice: (510) 644-2555     Fax: (510) 841-8645     Email: info@dredf.org     Web: https://dredf.org/     [09 Aug 2020]

Progressive Science Institute     The philosophy of PSI is based upon the universal mechanism of evolution, “univironmental determinism” (UD), which states that whatever happens to a portion of the universe is determined by the infinite matter in motion within and without. Progressives have recognized this as advanced dialectical materialism (e.g., the interaction of subjective and objective conditions). Dissident physicists have recognized UD and its sponsorship of Infinite Universe Theory as the proper approach to confront the reactionary aspects of modern physics involving, immaterial “particles,” matterless motion, 4-dimensional space-time, and a finite universe that explodes out of nothing.

Project Censored’s work highlights the important links among a free press, media literacy, and democratic self-government.     Address: PO Box 750940, Petaluma CA 94975     Voice: (707) 241-4596     Email: mickey@projectcensored.org   andy@projectcensored.org     Web: https://www.projectcensored.org/     [24 Oct 2020]

Queer Things To Do in the San Francisco Bay Area     What I list is basically events that I'm interested in. It's not a complete list of gay-related events in San Francisco, nor are all these events strictly about promoting the homosexual agenda, whatever that is. I tend to list events that are about people creating local, direct live entertainment, especially as related to spoken word, rock, hip-hop, and electronic music, art events, and so on. While I like to get email about events, I can't promise to list everything in this calendar that I'm told about.

Save Mount Sutro Forest     In the heart of the city, blanketing a steep hill, is one of San Francisco’s best-kept secrets: its very own temperate cloud forest. It’s a century-old forest of eucalyptus trees as tall as 200 feet high, growing on 80 acres of mountainside. Since 2002, UCSF has been attempting to put in place a plan that would effectively destroy the forest and replace it with “native plants.” The excuses have ranged from fire danger (which is minimal, owing to summer fog) to “forest health”, but the underlying story has always been cutting down trees and putting in native plants. Public opposition has slowed the process. This website was set up in 2009, when UCSF sought FEMA funding to cut down thousands of trees – an attempt that did not go through.     Web: http://sutroforest.com/     [13 Sep 2020]

Seed the Commons     Building a food system that is just, sustainable and independent of animal exploitation involves two things: resisting and dismantling the power of the agroindustrial complex, and creating a shift in social norms where non-human animals are no longer thought of as food.
