***SAT JAN 26, 2013 at 2:30PM  " THE HEALTHCARE MOVIE" a Documentary by Laurie Simons & Terry Sterrenberg, NARRATED BY KEIFER SUTHERLAND.  Featuring discussion with Dr. Bill Honigman, E.R. Doctor & Co-Co-Coordinater of the Campaign for a Healthy California, Orange County. This documentary provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same. Most people under the age of 50, in both countries, are not aware of the intensity of the political struggle that led to the universal medical care system in Canada. Nor are they aware of the public relations campaigns, still active today, that have been prevalent in the United States since the early 1900’s to dissuade the public from supporting national health care.  Produced by Canadian/American couple Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, The Healthcare Movie reveals the personal and emotional impact on Canadians who now have access to universal health care because of the heroism of people who took a stand nearly 50 years ago. It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States between the fear of government intervention and the right to quality health care for all people.  Every day people are dying or going bankrupt due to the ills of the United States system. Who are we in the face of this human tragedy? If you agree that people are more important than profits, then you must watch this film.   Feature:  65 minutes including credits Followed by an Addendum entitled “The Second Stage of Medicare”:  10 minutes     www.Healthcare.net.     FREE ADMISSION Where: Chula Vista Public Library, Civic Center Branch Auditorium, 365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910

*** WEEKEND OF FEB 17 - PRESIDENTS DAY WEEKEND CLIMATE CHANGE ACTIVISTS RALLY AT THE WHITE HOUSE TO SHUT DOWN THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE ONE & FOR ALL! It’s never been clearer that we need bold and immediate climate leadership - that’s why this Presidents Day weekend thousands of activists will head to the White House and tell President Obama to shut down the climate-killing Keystone XL pipeline once and for all. Something this big has to start early, and it has to start with the people who care the most. Commit to join us in Washington D.C. in February and make Presidents Day the biggest climate demonstration yet: act.350.org/signup/presidentsday/ The last time we stood up against Keystone XL, thousands of us surrounded the White House – and it worked. Right when every political and energy “expert” said the tar sands pipeline was a done deal, we beat the odds and convinced President Obama to take a year to study it. Now that year is over, and Mother Nature has filed her public comments: the hottest year in American history, a horrible ongoing drought, and superstorm Sandy. And still Big Oil is pushing as hard as ever for their pet project, looking for even more private profit at public expense. There is also good news: Together, we’ve proven time and time again that grassroots voices can speak louder than Big Oil’s dollars. So this Presidents Day, the Sierra Club, 350.org, and other environmental groups are working with our partners across the progressive community to organize the biggest climate demonstration yet. Our goal for Presidents Day is to form a massive human pipeline through Washington, and then transform it into a giant symbol of the renewable energy future we need - and are ready to build, starting right away. You can make this a Presidents Day that the president can’t ignore and won’t forget – sign up to join the rally, bring your friends, and stop the climate-killing Keystone XL pipeline: act.350.org/signup/presidentsday/ We’ll have more details soon about the rally and how you can make your voice heard, but for now, start making travel plans and circle Presidents Day weekend on your calendar. Together, we can show the president that the year’s delay didn’t lull us to sleep. Instead, we’re more fired up than ever, and determined to help him do the right. thing. Where: In Washington, D.C.

***WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 17 The #ClimateLegacy ActionOn 2/17! President Obama has just 4 years left to provide the leadership we need to stop climate change that is causing extreme weather like Hurricane Sandy, and Keystone XL is the first test of whether he's up for the job. This Spring, President Obama will decide whether to build the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, which will carry 830,000 barrels a day of the dirtiest oil on earth for export. On Presidents Day weekend, Feb 17, 2013, we'll be taking to the streets of Washington, D.C., with thousands to form a massive human pipeline, and to tell the President that we expect leadership on climate change, beginning with a rejection of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Six weeks after superstorm Sandy, much of the New Jersey Coast -- where I grew up and my family still lives -- remains in ruins.

RSVP YES: go to: http://action.sierraclub.org/site/PageServer?pagename=nat_signup_feb17&s_src=212MBOEN05

INFO:
Those affected by Sandy are not the first Americans touched by the climate crisis. Last year, the U.S. had 14 storms that caused more than $1 billion in damages each, breaking all records. And across the country, wildfires have destroyed thousands of homes from Texas to Washington. But there is good news. Together, we've proven time and time again that grassroots voices can speak louder than Big Coal and Big Oil's deep pockets. The last time we gathered in Washington, D.C., to demand climate action, thousands of us surrounded the White House -- and it worked. Right when every political "expert" said the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline was a done deal, we beat the odds and convinced President Obama to take a year to study it. So this Presidents Day, activists from the Sierra Club, 350.org, and other partner groups are going back. This will be the biggest climate demonstration yet -- if you can make it, you need to come and be a part of history. You can make this a Presidents Day that President Obama won't forget -- sign up to join the rally, stop the toxic Keystone XL pipeline, and create tangible momentum for further climate action. Together, it's our job to make sure the President sees a movement on climate that he can't ignore. We'll have more details about the rally next month, but for now, start making travel plans and circle February 17 on your calendar.

Nature has spoken: Sandy. Wildfires. Drought. It's our turn to speak. RSVP for the biggest climate rally yet, this February in D.C.! Six weeks after superstorm Sandy, much of the New Jersey Coast -- where I grew up and my family still lives -- remains in ruins. No one is allowed to move back permanently yet -- and none of us were prepared for what we saw the first time we were let in to view the damage. The first floor of almost every house was gutted. It's surreal and heart-sickening to look down the streets and see the piles of people's storm-damaged possessions -- carpet, furniture, appliances, toys, and clothing -- lined up like haystacks. The climate crisis is here, it is now, and it is affecting real lives. It has never been clearer that we need bold and immediate leadership. That's why on February 17, thousands of citizens will head to the White House and demand President Obama take serious action on climate -- you should be one of them. Traveling to D.C. is no small task, but something this big has to start early, and it has to start with the people who care the most. In just the first few days since the announcement, 8,000 activists have already RSVP'd. Join them at the White House in Washington D.C on February 17 and make this the biggest climate demonstration yet!
