If you knew nothing about fishing, this would be an awesome introduction. From Indonesian out-rigger canoes to Bering Sea factory trawlers, from cyanided reefs and dynamited fish in the western Pacific to tuna weirs in the Mediterranean, it's all here.

Using vivid images of sweeping nets full of fish unloading their contents onto commercial fishing boats, Empty Oceans, Empty Nets highlights the overwhelming magnitude of the annual worldwide harvest of more than 100 million metric tons of seafood. It also explores the stark reality of the 22 million tons of fish and other sea life that are caught and discarded by fishers each year. Viewers are transported to bustling and exotic international fish markets, where tons of fresh and frozen fish are sold each day to supply an insistent global demand and consumers will learn how they can make the biggest difference of all in sustaining the world’s ocean fisheries.

WEAPONS IN SPACE with Bruce Gagnon.

Sponsored by Peace Action of Staten Island, Peace Action of New York State, Code Pink New York. Contact 917-362-0897 for more information.

Weapons in Space"Vision for the Peace Movement: 62 Years After Hiroshima and Nagasaki" "We must do as the old saying goes – follow the money. And increasingly the money in the U.S. today is in weapons production. It is abundantly clear that no real alternative sustainable technology investment will be possible on the scale needed to avert catastrophic global warming without conversion of the military industrial complex [to a peaceful humanitarian agenda]. It is imperative that the peace movement, environmental movement, social justice movement, and labor movements create a unifying vision and political demand calling on Congress to use our hard-earned tax dollars for this conversion of the military industrial complex <http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2007/03/28/147/>. By converting the military [to peaceful activities] we can make large strides to dealing with greenhouse gases, create new sustainable industries and stop our free fall into endless war." -- Bruce Gagnon, http://www.space4peace.org/

SPECIAL:
NEW YORK CALLING: From Blackout To Bloomberg
, LIVE!

NEW YORK CALLING is the title of an acclaimed new collection of essays and photos by a stellar group of contributers about NYC's 5 dramatically changing boroughs over the last three decades, edited by historian MARSHALL BERMAN and journalist BRIAN BERGER.

A review excerpt:
  "New York City in the 1970s was the setting for Taxi Driver, Annie Hall, and Saturday Night Fever, the proving grounds for graffiti, punk, hip-hop, and all manner of other public spectacle. Musicians, artists, and writers could subsist even in Manhattan, while immigrants from the world over were reinventing the city in their own image.
   New York Calling unlocks life in the unpolished Apple, where, it seemed, anything could happen."   MORE>
New York Calling
 

   At ETG, editor BRIAN BERGER and two of the authors, ROBERT SIETSEMA and STEVE MALUK, will present live readings, Q&A and a slide show of images from this highly regarded new work, about "the lost world of edginess, eccentricity and urban anomie that characterized the unpolished Big Apple of the 70's and 80's".  Don't miss it!

-- -- -- -- --
   It’s a long way from old Brooklyn to the new Times Square. But New York Calling reminds us of what has changed – and what’s been lost – along the way.

 

Marshall Berman is Distinguished Professor of Political Science at City College of New York and CCNY Graduate Center, where he teaches political theory and urban studies. His books include On The Town: One Hundred Years of Spectacle in Times Square (2006) and All That Is Solid Melts into Air: The Experience of Modernity (1983). Born and raised in the Bronx, he lives in Manhattan with his family.

Brian Berger is a poet, journalist, and photographer who remembers the view of Playland from the terrace of his grandparents’ apartment in Rockaway Beach, Queens. He’s written about music for Forced Exposure, the Austin Chronicle and Geek Weekly, while his verse has appeared at jargonbooks.com and elsewhere. His own dark hollow is whowalkinbrooklyn.com
