1) We are very lucky that The Beehive Design Collective has agreed to come to Sacramento on October 28th to present their graphic campaign. http://www.beehivecollective.org/english/tour.htm

In their new "True Cost of Coal" banner, The Beehive Design Collective combines poignant messaging with beautiful artwork. Check it out, as well as their "Dismantling Monoculture" banner, and more at: http://www.beehivecollective.org/english/graphics_campaigns.htm

"The work of the Beehive Collective goes far beyond the traditional understanding of Solidarity. It is actively fostering equal exchanges and relationship building between communities that are involved in the same struggle for justice and democracy throughout the Western Hemisphere. Their open and inclusive process and the incorporation of Latin American mythology into their work transcends borders and language barriers. The Beehive collective breaks away from traditional forms of education. Their art forces the viewer to interact and participate within the graphic, making it a vital popular education tool where people learn about the reality of Plan Colombia, the Free Trade Area of the Americas, etc. The Beehive collective are pioneers and their work is telling and effective."
-Hendrik Voss, SOA Watch Networking Coordinator, Washington D.C.

Time: 7pm
Place: Luna's Cafe 1414 16th St., Sacramento,


2) As you may already know, Rainforest Action Network is having a campaign against the Financing of Coal.

Join us in a protest outside the local branch of Bank of America 1130 K St. on Halloween at noon. We will be passing out flyers regarding the hypocrisy of Bank of America's statement of "Green" values while their corporate actions continue to finance new coal, the worst contributor to greenhouse gases. Wear any fun costumes, all the better if it can relate to coal.

Time: 12pm
Place: K St. Bank of America (1130 K St.)


3) We would like to have a meeting regarding Bank of America and investments in Coal on November 6, 6:30p at my house. Bring ideas for the National Day of Action. Possible activities include signmaking, skit rehearsal, and planning.

Time: 6:30pm
Place: my house


4) Join us in the Rainforest Action Network's National Day of Action Against Coal Finance http://ran.org/campaigns/global_finance/spotlight/november_14_15_day_of_action_against_coal_finance on November 14th at 12pm.
