[Nettime-bold] Funeral

                                DEATH NOTICE

    It’s time... Please join us in person or in spirit as we mourn the 
passing of San Francisco Culture.  At two o'clock on Saturday October 
21th we will convene at Union Square and proceed up Market Street 
bearing a coffin to the Steps of City Hall.  The procession will 
include a marching band and police escort ending with speakers, 
performances, and celebration.

    Maybe you've watched this unique city's culture, built on 
diversity and a thriving art community, being strangled by blindly 
managed growth in recent years. What happened?  How can we influence 
the social impacts of our new economy?

    Our purpose is not just another protest; it's a theatrical event 
we hope will increase public awareness, create solidarity and raise 
issues of how change can be implemented. Those who remain in San 
Francisco must band together to uphold the integrity of one of the 
world's most inspiring cities.  Let's advertise to our local 
government the urgency of creating new reforms.

We request that all participants wear somber attire befitting a 
funeral march.  Signs and costumes are encouraged.

Feel free to send us your suggestions and contact us for further
information.  And pass the word.
