  7pm STANDING ROCK WITNESS REPORT - HEATHER SIOUX brings stories, images and video from her ongoing connection to the historical events at Standing Rock, ND, where the WATER PROTECTORS are refusing to allow the poisoning of the great missouri river by a new oil pipeline. She is also collecting donations to bring to the camp if you want to help support.

What are the facts? A private oil-pipeline-company with hundreds of oil spills and broken pipelines to its credit, wants to put a new private oil pipeline through the Missouri River and many other waterways. Many thousands of citizens and veterans have put their lives on the line to stop it, and continue to do so today. Militarized police have been brutally enforcing the private oil company's wishes. Occasionally false reports that the pipeline has been stopped are shared through the media, reducing the water protector population and making it easier for the pipeline to further towards completion.

Come experience a first-hand report and discussion.

TIME TRAVEL OPEN MIC
Do you have a story you can tell that relates to the UFO or Time Travel topic? A fantasy, or maybe even a story or poem that comes out of an experience you had, or someone told you about? Many people have stories, most have not shared them except with intimates due to the long-standing taboo around the topic. But the taboo is now lifted! You can also share songs, poetry, puppets or video. Just make sure what you share relates to these intriguing ideas.

Time Travel used to be considered far-out science fiction, but as more of our questions about the nature of Universe get explored with increasing depth by cutting edge science, as more secrets are revealed, people are finding out that some of their own experiences may have a real connection to Time Travel.

Ever had a first-hand experience with a possible UFO? There is a lot of evidence that UFO-users are from a future or a past, or a parallel "time-line". Tell us about it! Feel free to improvise and make it up on the spot! Share your story and enourage others to share theirs.

Just for fun!

7:30

MUSIC: THE BROTHERS WURZBACH- "IT'S NO JOKE"
  Another evening with the brothers Carl and George WURZBACH singing songs they wrote, songs they say they wrote, and songs they simply stole.
ALONE...TOGETHER
  "Carl Wurzbach is a songwriter who’s been forced to sing.  He found early success writing for others….getting covers by artists such Linda Clifford, Jimmy Caster, and Liquid Pleasure.  The latter's 1976 single “Take a Little Love” was nominated by Billboard magazine as disco single of the year….no sh*t…. Carl got sober and got a real job mixing music and shows at Celebrate Brooklyn, Broadway, and eventually BAM where he ran their opera house audio for 20 years.  He returns to the other side of the mic after a 35 year hiatus, confused and puzzled by the values of this strange planet he now performs on…an analogue guy in a digital world, his motto “ a little rock, a little roll, and a rather unfocused gaze” makes you wanna check him out at EDBlues.com doesn't it?  George Wurzbach [Carl's brother] is a multi-award winning songwriter from Brooklyn. He's a native; born, raised and residing in.  Perhaps this is why his music has a sort of 'attitude'. A uniqueness that is reflected in the number of artist songwriters who have recorded them including, Tom Paxton, The Kingston Trio, David Wilcox, Bob Malone, Kevin Briody, David Ippolito, John McNally, Hot Soup, Seamus Kennedy, and many others.  His recent work with Paxton was featured on the 2009 Grammy nominated album Comedians and Angels.  'There is a kind of laid-back smart-aleckness where one has to sit back, slack-jawed with awe. It’s his tone that gives the listener the impression of George as a bemused watchful observer. The ever-astonishing comedy of human errors is his playground.  Gentle, mocking humor, often directed at himself, is his palette.'- Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live Magazine.  After his selection as a Kerrville New Folk Award winner in 1995 George formed the music comedy trio Modern Man with David Buskin and Rob Carlson earning a BackStage Magazine Bistro Award and several MAC Award nominations while frightening many innocent people. And as a musician, George works in NY as a sideman and session player, and occasionally as pianist on stage with Melanie.  When not not performing, George serves as a full time Professor at Monmouth University where he teaches music theory & composition."

 Born in Brooklyn in 1981, Fedeline Charles is a first generation Haitian-American. Orphaned by the age of three, Fedeline lived her youth consumed with abuse, resentment and abandonment. Writing became her outlet, however after getting pregnant at the age of twelve, she would put down the pen, in order to go on the journey of her life.  By the age of fourteen she’d signed herself into the New York Foster Care system. Once in foster care on Staten Island, Fedeline would find love and acceptance which allowed her to picked up the pen again.  Fedeline Charles is the mother of five, a spoken word artist, and writer.  As her passion for writing continues to blossom she shares her first book of poetry “WORDS LEFT UNSPOKEN” with the world.

Currently i have over an hour of material to perform .

Sergio Napoletano
Singer/Songwriter
Indie-Rock

After years spent perfecting his craft as a guitarist for some of the most notable acts to come out of Staten Island's rich and diverse local music scene(Paul & The Tall Trees, Pablo, Heaux, Heroes and Villains), as well as becoming a fixture at various acoustic/open-mic showcases, singer/songwriter Sergio Napoletano has found his stride....and his band. With an enormous support group of musicians/friends, the band doesn't just play songs but creates atmosphere. As a live act, the band can go from light and airy to gritty and tight, sometimes trading in their sweet polished sound for a more clunky indie-rock vibe which often demonstrates the real strength of their music: concise, well written songs and undeniable musical chemistry.

3pm NEW COMMUNES NORTHEAST: SLIDE SHOW & DISCUSSION
    In the last few years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of new income-sharing intentional communities (aka communes).  This slide show and discussion is about 5 communes in Central Virginia (including an intro to the two well-established ones Acorn and Twin Oaks) and the new urban commune in DC called Compersia.  Why is the commune movement growing?  How do these new communities differ from existing communes?  Are all these small communities viable? (We have already lost one start-up in Richmond.) 

The format of this event is a 40 minute slide show, followed by a question and answer session with people who have lived in these communities and are helping to found more.  Presenters include: Paxus who has lived both at Acorn and Twin Oaks and is fostering the Cambia start up in Virginia, Cel who is the FEC delegate for Twin Oaks and has lived at the Baltimore Free Farm, and Raven who is from Ganas and Point A NYC and helped create an income sharing community in Massachusetts.

SPECIAL: COULD UNDERSTANDING 9-11 END THE WAR ON TERROR? Newly De-classified Documents.
   It's been a bizarre year for American politics, including in the realm of 9-11 investigation.
   Join two leading NYC peace activists, Les Jamieson and Sander Hicks, as they present and lead a discussion on the recent developments toward understanding the events of 9-11.
   Last July, a historic effort to achieve transparency on key 9/11 evidence culminated in the declassification of 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry report on 9/11. This was followed by a dramatic passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). These two developments cleared the way for law suits targeting sources of funding for the attacks to move forward after years of being stuck in limbo. Now clear insights into the relationship between the Bush family and Saudi royal family, the 9/11 money trail, the geopolitics of the U.S./Saudi government, and role of the Deep State are visible like never before. Now the 9/11 wars abroad and loss of civil liberties at home can be seen as part of a covert agenda for empire which the 9/11 “new Pearl Harbor” event triggered. Come learn how this area of evidence has proven so strong that Congress was compelled to take action. Included will be an overview of the diverse areas of scholarly research compiled over 16 years. We will also discuss the need for continued vigilance as well as potential for great progress in this new stage of 9/11 justice activism.

>>> LIVE STREAM VIDEO OF THIS EVENT at 911TV.org

Speakers: Les Jamieson, Sander Hicks

Les Jamieson has studied the alternative research into 9/11 since November, 2001. He has been publicly active as an event organizer, street activist, and movement builder since January of 2004. Beginning October 2014, Les spearheaded an effort to generate grassroots support for legislation to release the 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11, as well as mobilize public support for the passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). Les co-sponsored the 9/11 Justice In Focus Symposium for the 15th anniversary of the attacks. This event is widely recognized as one of the most informative and best produced 9/11 activist events ever. Les has chaired educational panels on 9/11 and the 28 pages at the Left Forum in 2015 and 2016. Les is currently on the board of the 9/11 Truth Action Project, working to mobilize activists calling for a “9/11-informed Congress”.

Sander Hicks is founder of Soft Skull Press, Vox Pop Inc., and Zen Carpentry. As a writer, he has written seven plays and musicals, and sings in his art-punk band White Collar Crime. His most recent book is Slingshot to the Juggernaut: Total Resistance to the Death Machine Means Complete Love of the Truth. (Soft Skull, 2012). He is an alumnus playwright of New Dramatists, where in 2017, he produced a night of dramatic theatre, entitled, “The Mysteries of 9/11.” Hicks has personally confronted Dick Cheney, Rudy Giuliani, Richard Ben-Veniste, Jerome Hauer, and several other government officials about the US/Mossad 9/11 cover-up.
    As a businessman, Sander Hicks started the innovative award-winning companies Capital Cooperative/Zen Carpentry, Soft Skull Press,  and Vox Pop Inc.  Hicks appeared in the national media from 1999 to 2001 for republishing the controversial George W. Bush biography Fortunate Son. His struggle to print the full story about then-Governor Bush was covered by 60 Minutes, New York Times, Washington Post and the award-winning documentary “Horns and Halos,” broadcast on HBO’s Cinemax in 2003.
     Hicks has written about economics for Alternet and religion for The Huffington Post. Hicks has spoken widely across the country, from house parties to radical bookstores to Stanford Law School. Raised Catholic, Hicks is a Zen practitioner and interfaith activist, who seeks the truth through understanding the call to justice in all of humanity’s religions.

7pm MOVIE: "VAXXED" - a documentary about the senior scientist in charge of research at the Center for Disease Control who came forward as a whistle-blower claiming that he committed fraud for his employer in order to protect the monopoly on a certain Mumps vaccine owned by global pharmaceutical corporation, Merck. Perhaps the most heavily propagandized-against movie of all time, it provides a startling look inside the working of big corporate power. Robert Deniro wanted to screen this movie at the Tribecca Film Festival, but was attacked by a big-budget disinformation campaign that forced him to pull it from the schedule. Now you can see for yourself what the scientists have to say. 
Join the after-film discussion with experts in the case.

Ever meet a ghost, or had an out-of-body experience? Ever meet someone from another dimension, or another world? Any significant telepathic experiences? Lucid dreams? Past life memories? Pre-cognition? We invite you to share your experience, or some paranormal-related creativity.
    "They call it paranormal because it doesn't fit into the standard mainstream scientistic paradigm we have decided is NORMAL. Rather than accepting that we don't completely understand yet how our reality works, we have created a sort of intellectual ghetto to put these experiences in, where they can be 'safely' ignored. We have named that ghetto PARANORMAL"
