ARTICLES:
Iraq: Victims Without A Voice - By Tim Llewellyn
  The Iraqi people have no voice. The Anglo-American forces who are killing them in their thousands are led by aliens in foreign capitals who know what is best for these 22 million people and how to "liberate" them, as if we were back in 1917
Green Party Condemns US Bombardment
Every war begins with a lie. In this one the US government has lied, and lied, and lied again. Twelve years ago the US government hired a public relations firm, Hill & Knowlton, to sell to Congress the ludicrous "incubator babies" fairy tale.
American Peace Activist Murdered By Israeli Bulldozer In Gaza Strip
On 16 March 2003, in an act of terrible, murderous injustice, an Israeli army bulldozer driver killed a 23-year old US citizen as she passively protected the home of a Palestinian physician in Rafah, near the border of Gaza and Egypt.
New Ag Proposals Giving Away The Farm - By Elena Belsky
Marin is known for its love and protectiveness of open space and wild places. Yet sharing Marin's resources - balancing human desires and environmental needs - is not always easy and never simple.
Regional Board Joins Army Cover Up At Hamilton - By Elena Belsky
This article was to be Part II of Chronic Problems At Hamilton, and praise for the Regional Water Quality Control Board's (RWQCB) continued public accessibility and monitoring of the Army; but it has turned into a story of contagion.
Bush Administration Wants Lower Nuclear Threshold - By Jim Scanlon
With thousands of fission and fusion bombs of all sizes left over from the Cold War, one would have thought there were enough doomsday weapons on hand for the US military, but not so!
Marin's Environmental Master Plan Unveiled - By Louis Nuyens
Marin County is currently engaging in a comprehensive update of its General Plan, also known as the Marin Countywide Plan, the guiding document for all County's regulations and policies.
Medically Caused Cancer - By Raymond Francis
Cancer is an out-of-control epidemic now affecting almost one out of every two Americans in their lifetime. One American dies of cancer every minute and the problem is growing worse.
US Stocking Uranium-Rich Bombs? - By Elliot Borin, Wired Magazine
US forces in the Persian Gulf may be armed with radioactive bombs and missiles hundreds of times more potent than similar weapons used during the Gulf War and the UN military campaign in Bosnia.
What Will Israel Do If Attacked? Next Target, Iran - By Jim Scanlon
A long and thoughtful article on how Israel might retaliate if attacked with non conventional weapons, appeared in the March 22nd edition of Ha'aretz, a leading Israeli newspaper.
Bush Justice Department Mauls Big Tobacco - By Jim Scanlon
In an unusual attack on Tobacco Corporations, the US Justice Department filed a civil suit charging a criminal conspiracy by several big name US corporations to defraud American consumers.
Why We Fight: Petrodollars Vs. Petroeuros - By Jim Scanlon
Dick Cheney said, "This has nothing to do with oil". President Bush and his spokesman Ari Fleisher, deny repeatedly that oil has anything to do with it.
Pentagon Hawk Advisor to Bankrupt Corporation - By Jim Scanlon
The Chairman of the influential US Defense Policy Board, Richard Perle is an advisor---but not apparently a lobbyist --- for the Global Crossing Corporation whose CEO legally sold some $800,000 million in company stock as he ran it into bankruptcy.
Alien Species in Cahoots - By Michael J. Adams
Non-native bullfrogs and fish from the eastern United States are teaming up against native aquatic species as they invade ponds in the Pacific Northwest, according to a US Geological Survey (USGS) study published in Ecology Letters.
First Annual Marin Environmental Film Festival
By Elena Belsky
For the first time, but in what they hope to be an ongoing collaboration, the Environmental Forum of Marin and the California Film Institute (www.finc.org) have teamed up to present a series of award-winning and thought-provoking films from around the world
Baring Witness In Alaska
About 375 clothed people formed an S.O.S. and a peace sign in a hayfield near Fairbanks, Alaska on Saturday March 8th, to speak out against the threatened war in Iraq.
Harry Pothead In The Looney Bin - By Stephen Simac
When Bill O'Reilly of Fox News told Americans to Just Shut Up! and Support Our Soldiers, I listened. There was nothing to say anyway. I'd been watching his bombastic show because of Fox's motto, "We Lie, You Decide." It seemed more honest than CNN.
Movement Afoot To Impeach Bush - By Karen Nakamura

Just War-Or A Just War? - By Jimmy Carter, March 9, 2003
ATLANTA - Profound changes have been taking place in American foreign policy, reversing consistent bipartisan commitments that for more than two centuries have earned our nation greatness.
News Briefs

Stewardship Plan for Tomales Bay
The Tomales Bay Watershed Council is now initiating a comprehensive public outreach campaign to gather additional community input on their Draft stewardship plan.
Lies And Other Market Forces - By Frank Scott
"The size of the lie is a factor in causing it to be believed, for the masses are in their hearts more easily deceived than consciously and intentionally bad.
Lies, Lies, The Weapons Of Mass Deception - By Edward W. Miller
"You simply cannot sell this war. It's poison. It's a colonial occupation with further unstated motives." Brussels diplomat ( Mar 18)
MOO TOWN NEWS - Shotgunning Tomales Bay - By Judy Borello

Do You Want Freedom Fries Or Regime Change? - By Jeanette Pontacq
The Bushies are on a roll. You have to hand it to them...they have managed to turn America's anger with Osama bin Laden to blood-lust for Saddam Hussein, even though there is not a shred of evidence that the secular dictator had anything to do with bin Laden.
Casualties Of War-First Truth, Then Conscience - By Norman Solomon
The national media echo chamber is not receptive to conscience. On television, the voices are usually loud and facile. People often seem to be shouting. In contrast, the human conscience is close to a whisper. Easily unheard.
