Friday, March 24, 7:00
pm, ANSWER Coalition Forum: Is the Trump regime planning a new Korean war?
2969 Mission Street, San Francisco
Recent actions and statements by the Trump administration and the Pentagon have
raised the danger of a new war on the Korean Peninsula. At the same time as top
U.S. officials are declaring that “no options are off the table,” massive “war
games” are taking place very close to North Korea, and a new U.S. missile
system is being deployed in South Korea, dramatically raising the threat of a
new conflict. Join us for presentations
and discussion of building the movement to resist a new war.
More than 4 million killed, most of Korea destroyed in 1950-53 U.S. war! info: 415-821-6545 or ANSWERsf.org

25, 11:15 am - 12:15 pm, Public Talk: Abandoning Dualistic Thinking, Manjushri Dharma Center, 724 Forest Avenue, Pacific Grove.
Out of ignorance, we tend to
think of daily experience and nirvana (the experience of an enlightened mind)
as two separate realities, when actually they are of the same nature:
non-conceptuality, deep freedom and bliss. Within our conventional
reality we often judge people and experiences as good or bad, pleasant or
unpleasant, and spend energy trying to avoid the unpleasant, seeking only the
people and circumstances we enjoy. What
if we could experience others from a basis of curiosity, openness, and freedom
of thought? What if we viewed our lives and circumstances beyond the lens
of habitual dualistic thinking?
Join us for a teaching from Khenpo Karten Rinpoche, resident monk and teacher at the Manjushri Dharma Center,
following our regular mediation practice (10-11am). Rinpoche will teach
directly in his own English. Event is
free, but donations are always appreciated.

Schools invites you: Chavez Day Press Conference to Ban Chlorpyrifos
at the Old Jail in Salinas. Featuring speakers from the Monterey Bay Central Labor Council,
United Farm Workers, Center for Farmworker Families, Salinas Valley Memorial
Hospital and Salinas Elementary Teachers Council!
• What's chlorpyrifos? Chlorpyrifos is one of the most widely
used pesticides in the US, 20% of it used in California. It is also a
potent neurotoxin that is banned by the U.S. EPA for home use because
it harms children’s development. But is still widely used for agriculture in California’s
• March 31st, 2017 is the court-ordered deadline for the U.S. EPA to
ban chlorpyrifos. But the ban appears likely to be "Trumped" as EPA chief Scott Pruitt gets to work dismantling the
agency. It's time for California to step up against Trump and ban this
dangerous chemical once and for all.
• March 31st is also the birthday of Cesar Chavez, who fought
tirelessly for this very same issue. Our news conference is in honor of Cesar
Chavez and the victories he achieved for farmworkers throughout California.
So bring a sign, bring friends,
and continue the legacy of Chavez by demanding that the state protect our next
generation by phasing out use of chlorpyrifos!

April 8, 3:00 - 5:00 pm, Dr. Sharat Lin will give a
program on: Israel-Palestine in the Era
of Trump. As
the Trump Administration signals enhanced support for an increasingly

solution may be fading. But the
two-state paradigm itself masks an exceedingly complex and
convoluted matrix of separation, inequality, and asymmetric control
that has come about under the Oslo process. On the positive side, Palestine is becoming
integral to the progressive discourse in the U.S.
Dr. Lin is a research fellow at the San
Jose Peace and Justice Center. He writes and speaks on global political
economy, labor migration, and the Middle East. Event cosponsored by the Monterey Peace and
