The provincial and the federal government need to do more to help indigenous people of this only unceded province of Canada, to become more independent of the governments. These governments need to do less for the government elected chief and councillors of this province, who do nothing to help the indigenous people of this unceded province. The government elected chief and councillors are so corrupt, we need to do away with many of them. The drug test need to become a mandatory test to do within many of these corrupt chiefs and councillors offices, including the department of indian affairs offices. Cocaine has become the ruler of many of the indigenous communities.

Every single day, 30,000 children die, needlessly, of extreme poverty.  On July 6th, we finally have the opportunity to stop that shameful statistic.  8 world leaders, gathered in Scotland for the G8 summit, will be presented with a workable plan to double aid, drop the debt and make the trade laws fair. If these 8 men agree, then we will become the generation that made poverty history.

But they'll only do it if enough people tell them to.  That's why we're staging Live 8. 5 concerts, 100 artists, a million spectators, 2 billion viewers, and 1 message... To get those 8 men, in that 1 room, to stop 30,000 children dying every single day of extreme poverty.

We don't want your money - we want you!  http://www.makepovertyhistory.ca/

1.  BENEFIT FOR TRE ARROW

On Monday, 20 June 2005, the Victoria chapter of the Tre Arrow
Defence Committee will be presenting 'Freedom's Arrow: A Benefit for
Tre Arrow' from 1830h to 2300h at the Fernwood Community Association
(1923 Fernwood Road).

All proceeds from the show will go directly to
the Tre Arrow Legal Defence Fund, as we enter the final stages of an
epic build up to the extradition hearing, which begins the following
Monday (27 June) in Vancouver.  Beyond the financial aspect, this
show is hoping to raise awareness and support for both Tre and the
environment we all share.  We will also attempt to arrange caravans
to Vancouver to support Tre during the hearing.

     The line-up for this show (the third to be held in Victoria since
Tre's arrest) is easily the best one yet, featuring a great mix of
music, poetry and guest speakers.  There will also be juices, teas +
vegan goodies available at Dustin's concession corner.  Community is
important to Tre, and to we as well.  We therefore invite all of
Victoria to come take part in the evening.

     Here's a look at the line-up for the show:

* RAE SPOON - Hot on the heels of his present tour, Rae will be bringing
his own unique country twang across the waters for our enjoyment.
(www.raespoon.com)

* SARAH NONI METZNER - returning once again to her Victoria roots, Sarah
will unofficially begin her summer touring season bringing her acoustic
delight to the F.C.A.     (www.sarahmetzner.ca)

* GLENNA G - No stranger to many Victorians, Glenna's whimsical songs will
satiate local fans, while winning over any strangers as well.
(www.glennathestar.com)

* ORY NO'MAN - A lot has happened to ory no'man since Tre's arrest spelled
the demise of their just-birthing band; now with his one-man band, ory
will shine his enigmatic bluesfolk overtones on the city he once called
home.     (www.orynoman.ca)

* THE VICTORIA POETRY SLAM TEAM - The VPST will show folks why they've
been chosen to represent this city in the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word
at the dawning of Vancouver autumn.

* MASS - Local instrumentalists look to take listeners on a journey
through organic soundscapes and undercurrents.

     Through collective union of art and music on this eve of solstice, we
will raise awareness of human rights and environmental action, while
harnessing and channeling positive vibrations to a man facing down
the machine.

For further information about the show, or to arrange interviews with
any of the performers or promoters for this event, please contact
myself at the pedestrian ! productions offices.

In love, honour + wisdom

2.  MOVIE MONDAY

>Monday June 20 6:30 RACHEL, RACHEL  Q&A with screenwriter Stewart Stern by telephone
Rachel is a small town spinster school teacher who dresses plainly and tries
not to stand out. Her self-centered hypochondriac mother dominates
her life. It seems she'll never escape until one Summer break an old school
mate returns to town and her closed life opens to new possibilities.

Joanne Woodward is perfect in this thoughtful and nuanced role, deftly
directed by first timer (and husband) Paul Newman.

This 1968 classic is an adaptation of a well known Canadian novel "A Jest Of God" by Margaret Laurence. We're privileged to have screen writer Stewart Stern with us by phone to illuminate that process. R     Stewart's bio on the site.

4.  INTERNATIONAL MUSIC SCHOOL AND FESTIVAL

M  u  s  i  c - b  y - t  h  e - S  e  a

international music school and festival at Bamfield British Columbia

June 21, 2005
Bamfield, British Columbia

Visitor?s Day at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre
Ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries

IN BRIEF

A new international music school and festival named Music-by-the-Sea, slated for June 2006,  is announced at the opening ceremony of the Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre.

Designed by Peter de Hoog and Lynn Gordon-Findlay , the new centre boasts a breath-taking scallop-shell shaped hall with a clear north-facing wall looking out to the sea, which will be the magical setting for music performances of Music-by-the-Sea

Conceived and led by composer and conductor Christopher Donison, former music director of the Shaw Festival, the new festival will be an opportunity for talented music students from around the world to study and perform with some of the world?s finest musicians in an environment which has no equal: the world-renown Pacific Rim National Park.

IN FULL
On July 21, 2005 the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre will welcome Dr. Donald B. Rix and others to the opening of the Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries, a state-of-the-art marine research laboratory, classroom complex and conference centre.  Others in attendance include Dr. Martha Piper, President of the University of British Columbia, Dr. Michael Stevenson, President of Simon Fraser University, the Honourable Dr. James Lunney, MP Nanimo-Alberni, and many other dignitaries and guests. Music-by-the-Sea, a new international music school and festival slated to begin in June 2006 will also be announced, and all in attendance will be treated to the first music performance in the hall. It will be a new work by Christopher Donison, Director of Music-by-the-Sea, for clarinet and piano, performed by Keith McLeod, principal clarinet for the Victoria Symphony.

The Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (BMSC) supports diverse coastal and marine research of the highest calibre, and is Canada?s premier coastal research and training facility.  World-class research depends on world-class facilities.  The jewel-on-the crown at BMSC features the new Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries, a 1200 m2 combined conference centre, classroom complex, and marine/coastal science laboratory.

The building was designed to be an icon for the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre and be immediately evocative of the natural marine environment. Its scallop shell roof springs from large wood columns, arching up to a second ring of columns at the building face where a curved glazed fa?ade allows sweeping views of Barkley Sound and the mountains of central Vancouver Island beyond.  Pendant lights hang from the ceiling like marine creatures such as jellyfish suspended in water, their glow illuminating the underside of the scalloped roof at night. As a result of its shape the hall has excellent acoustics and will be a magical place for music.

After discussions with Bamfield Marine Sciences Director, Dr.Dennis E. Jelinski, it was agreed that BMSC was the natural place for Christopher Donison?s vision of a festival by the sea to unfold. Already a learning environment, BMSC, has all of the infrastructure necessary for student residencies. Also of great excitement is the concept of scientists and artists in the same learning environment.

Music-by-the-Sea will be a place for a life-changing experience, where the most promising talented young musicians from around the world, will have the opportunity to study and perform with some of the world?s finest musicians in a natural setting that has no equal: the bold beauty of the west coast of Canada?s Vancouver Island in the Pacific Rim National Park. During a concentrated period during the summer, musicians will take in the powerful inspiration this stunning part of the world elicits. It will focus the muse.

The attached photos show the Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries main hall at night and the view out to the Pacific from within.

5.  ETHICS FOOD BUYING CLUB

It's time again to put our heads together and come up with some fruitful discussion and brilliant ideas about our future.  Yes, it's meeting time again.  Rather than having one, rather long meeting, we felt it made more sense to break the agenda into two and spread out the fun.  =)  Seriously though, there are some really interesting things to talk about and everyone is welcome and encouraged to come to one or both of the meetings, according to your interests.  So here's the plan:
 
Meeting #1:  Debrief of May 18th order and plans for our next order
Wednesday June 22nd, 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Green Cuisine, small room on the left (come at 5ish if you want to join us for dinner first)
 
On the agenda:
    ~ feedback about May 18th order
    ~ ordering produce
    ~ feedback about automation of website
    ~ our next order
 
Meeting #2:  Discussion of vision
Tuesday July 5th, 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Green Cuisine, small room on the left (come at 6ish if you want to join us for dinner first)
 
On the agenda:
    ~ a future store-front co-op?
    ~ our vision for the buying collective/co-op
        (e.g., product policy (what to carry and what not to), mark-up policy (variable or fixed?),
    ~ forming a business plan sub-committee
 
Hope to see you there!

6.  A CELEBRATION OF TREES

Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.?
--Bill Vaughn

If you dine at the Blethering Place (located at 2250 Oak Bay Avenue) on Thursday June 23rd, you?ll be in for an evening of unique environmentally-friendly entertainment. The Oak Bay Green Committee (OBGC) in conjunction with other local environmental organizations, working for the expansion of the municipality?s tree protection bylaw, is hosting an evening of readings, music, speakers, skits and information.

Emily Carr (a.k.a. Molly Raher Newman) will be there (painting and speaking about trees), as well as the Green Onions? guitar duo and authors reading from Meadows, Mounds and Meanders, a new book on natural sites around Victoria.

"Our book is about psychological and aesthetic reasons to preserve trees and natural spaces in the urban landscape," explains Barbara Julian, one of the authors. "We are thrilled to join the Oak Bay Green Committee in providing an evening of entertainment, information and inspiration. It's time to reconsider our tolerance of arboricide."

The OBGC is working to encourage Oak Bay Municipal Council to expand their tree protection bylaws. Oak Bay has the opportunity to harmonize its bylaw with the tree protection initiatives of neighbouring municipalities. "As important as the broadening of bylaw protection is for all of us to understand the long term benefits of a healthy, vital tree canopy on both private and public lands," explains OBGC member, Ren? de Vos. "Education is also crucial."

?A Celebration of Trees? at the Blethering Place, from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. An evening of upbeat environmentally-friendly entertainment, plus information on the many ways you can help protect our community?s urban forest. Free baby Oak trees will be available.

17.  NEW PERSPECTIVES INT'L CONFERENCE ON PATIENT SELF-MANAGEMENT

COMING UP AT UVIC

HEALTHIER PATIENTS, WORLDWIDE:

What does it take for people with chronic conditions to manage their illness and feel healthier?

That's just one of the subjects more than 750 delegates will be discussing with global experts at Canada's first international conference on patient self-management this fall.

The New Perspectives International Conference on Patient Self-Management will be held from September 12 to 14, 2005 at the Victoria Conference Centre. 

"Effective patient self-management creates greater confidence in the patient, allowing them to problem-solve, set goals and manage their condition by working with their health care professional," says Dr. Patrick McGowan, associate professor with the University of Victoria Centre on Aging and conference co-chair. "This is a very positive approach since an informed patient is often a healthier patient." The centre is sponsoring the conference along with co-sponsors the B.C. Ministry of Health Services and the Healthy Heart Society of B.C. The early-bird conference registration deadline is June 15.

19.  fifty fifty arts collective
 
Shock Corridor Cinema Presents: A Terribly Vulgar Program Of Horror Film Oddities.

A program of lost treasures from the horror film genre.
four countries and four sub-genres are represented. 

Screens every Tuesday throughout July at the fifty fifty arts collective. 2516 Douglas st.
http://thefiftyfifty.org

All screenings at 9pm. Two dollars per screening.

Tuesday, July 5th
Vampyre (Carl Dreyer, 1932)
"One of the strangest, most idiosyncratic horror films ever made." This angular narrative concerns occult researcher David Gray's confrontation with a European village tackling a serious Vampire problem. A young girl is losing blood and in attempt to save her life, Gray donates his not before falling into a fevre dream during which he envisions his own burial and other surreal manifestations. Dreyer's brooding use of light and unsettling atmosphere is some of the finest expressionist cinematography committed to celluloid. Eraserhead and Fritz Lang enthusiasts will adore this obscure and lost treasure of the early sound films that explore the Vampire legacy. running time: 70 minutes

Followed by two shorts produced in the tradition of early cinema and the horror genre:
Lumiere (David Lynch, 1995)
A one minute short shot with the original Lumiere camera that is said to have fertilized the birth of cinema. creepy and oh so Lynchian. running time: 1 minute
Hospital Fragment (Guy Maddin, 1999)
Eccentric and under appreciated Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin revisits the images of Gimli Hospital in this disturbing exploration of desire, masochism and dead fish. running time: 3 minutes

Tuesday, July 12th
Videodrome (David Cronenberg, 1982)
Perhaps the most provocative work in the Cronenberg canon. TV producer Max Renn (James Woods) discovers a renegade television channel said to be broadcasting from the U.S. by way of the Developing World. In an effort to increase his own station's marketability (said to be based on Moses Zammier's flagship station, Toronto's City-tv) Max attempts to pick up the station for commercial use, not before falling victim to the program's reprehensible images of sex and torture. A horrific experimentation in mind control develops as Max becomes the guinea pig for a Maclughanesque treatment of visual culture and its horrific outcomes. Videodrome visualizes televisual horror through female seduction - a prevalent theme in Cronenberg's work - a monster played to perfection by Deborah Harry (pop diva from the 80s band Blondie). A must see for newcomers and certainly worth revisiting on the big screen by any Cronenberg enthusiast. running time: 89 minutes.

Followed by:

Fear on Film (1982)
A rather humorous, if not gregarious round table discussion featuring John Landis, John Carpenter and David Cronenberg produced as promotional material for Universal Studios. This talk explores the specific films of these three filmmakers and their insights of the horror genre. Overall this chit chat illustrates the very "unpostmodern" notion that there are moments in history when we might actually attribute a director's personality to the film's they make. Totally revealing stuff. running time: 26 minutes.

Tuesday, July 19th
A Living Hell (Shugo Fujii, 2000)
A festival favourite since its auspicious debut a few years back, A Living Hell is billed as the Japanese answer to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Wheelchair-bound 22-year-old Yasu is recovering from a mental breakdown when two distant relatives arrive to stay with his family. One is a pasty-faced elderly woman and the other is a pale, skinny girl about Yasu's age, both of whom never talk or display any recognizable human emotions -- and who always stand side by side, looking on with cold, dead stares. When Yasu's father and older siblings are at work during the day, the creepy duo is left alone to torture the helpless boy. Things get most interesting once the narrative takes a sudden turn towards the bizarre as a gruesome dose of parental sadism takes the film to a whole other level. Economically produced on a budget of $100,000, A Living Hell is an example of independent Japanese filmmaking at it finest, taking the Family Horror film to a whole new level of gruesome domesticity. running time: 104 minutes.

Tuesday, July 26th
Eaten Alive (Tobe Hooper, 1976)

PRESENTED OUTDOORS IN DRIVE-IN WIDESCREAM: blankets and bicycles encouraged!

Tobe Hooper's highly anticipated, yet suspicously buried follow up to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The story of a hotel keeper, suffering from a bad case of social alientation and genreal psychosis mames his guests with farming equipment not before dumping their half dead bodies into the bayou, home of his angry pet gator. Although not complemented by the luscious cinematography that marked his genre defining film of a few years earlier, Eaten Alive features the camp humour and slasher sensibilities one would expect from a Hooper film from the 70s. Starring the original scream queen Marlyn Burns (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame) and a very teenaged Robert Englund (Freddie Kruger) who occupies the questionable role of horny bar stud. One of the finest Drive-In flicks from the 70s you've probably never seen. running time: 89 minutes

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
