Phyllis Meshulam and others will hold a debate on the validity of common arguments for and against further gun control laws, followed by discussion. We all need to be able to discuss this matter with acquaintances and neighbors who currently look at it from an NRA perspective, so that we understand better where they are coming from and common ground may be found to back progress on this issue.

May 25th is the international March Against Monsanto day. Santa Rosa is proud to be a part of this important event as we march from Julliard Park starting at 11AM to Courthouse Square. We have a right to healthy food without corruption or control by corporate interests. We have a right to know what's in our food.
Why do we march?
Research studies have shown that Monsanto's genetically-modified
foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of
cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food
safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and
we feel that's a questionable conflict of interest and explains
the lack of government-led research on the long-term effects of GM

Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Economist and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich gave a standing-room-only audience Monday in Santa Rosa a crash course in how the nation's economy went sour.With the backdrop of a movement in Sonoma County to stop Wal-Mart from expanding its local presence, Reich used the nation's top employer as an example of how big companies have outsized power to set poor standards for wages and workplace conditions. "This isn't about blaming Wal-Mart, it's about blaming the system," Reich told about 400 people at Santa Rosa's Glaser Center.
