ANNOUNCEMENTS

Thursday, December 28

Thursday, 4:00pm – Rally in Solidarity with Honduras

24th Street & Mission
SF

A rally will be held by Bay Area Hondurans United Against the Honduras Dictatorship, to raise awareness and defend the victory of Salvador Nasralla, candidate of the Alliance Against the Dictatorship of Honduras.

On Dec. 22, the U.S. State Department recognized the re-election of Juan Orlando Hernández, despite the obvious fraud and massive protests throughout the country. Honduras was one of only 8 countries at the UN that voted to support Donald Trump’s declaring of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, an obvious quid pro quo.

The electoral fraud is so evident that even the Organization of American States, OAS, has called for new elections to be held.

For more information, call 415-499-2891, 858-205-0044, 925-705-3804, 209-371-9532, 415-994-3711. Visit FB: Alianza

Hear the call of Mother Earth! She as well as us are going through a shift and many things are changing. While this is going on we can help alleviate and rid ourselves by smudging.
The art of smudging is an ancient practice done by our ancestors to purify, cleanse, protect and transmute all the gunky gnarly toxic invisible but tangible energy that permeates our atmosphere.

join us for a fun filled day of smudging, drumming and fun! Bring your copal, sage, palo santo, all the medicine you want and join us so we can smudge the bay area!!
