Logging Threatens Alaska Wildlife!

Dear WWF Conservation Action Network Participant:

One of the last great American forests, the Tongass National
Forest in southeast Alaska, provides essential habitat for
wolves, grizzly and black bears, bald eagles, salmon, Sitka
black-tailed deer, and many other species.  Within a week
President Clinton is expected to decide whether or not to grant
the Louisiana Pacific Corporation logging rights to large amounts
of the Tongass's old-growth forests, at subsidized rates.
Allowing the logging would jeopardize these species.  Please
follow the simple steps below to send a free fax and/or e-mail
urging President Clinton to say no to Louisiana Pacific's request
for a logging deal.  Please act now before time runs out!

The Tongass National Forest lies within an ecoregion that World
Wildlife Fund has identified as globally outstanding.
Encompassing more than one quarter of the world's coastal
temperate rain forests, this ecoregion is one of the largest and
most pristine temperate rain forest and shoreline ecosystems in
the world. Unfortunately, an extensive road system for logging
has heavily fragmented the Tongass.  Now, Louisiana Pacific is
proposing a logging agreement that would extend that road system
even further.

WWF is issuing this action alert in collaboration with the Alaska
Rainforest Campaign.  Please take action today to help protect
this world class ecoregion!

To take action now, go to and
click on "Your Personal Action Center."

Conservation Action Network, send an e-mail to  If you have additional questions

   * NEXT 5 MINUTES SPECIAL BROADCAST; 12/13/14 march '99
        You don't want to miss this!
DFM rtv Int. is a  free, experimental, anti-commercial station
gathering it's free content from all availlable media. It is a
platform for independent media-people  and  artists delivering
soundscapes, intens music, information, techart, live sessions
and more.  Programs are made locally,  grabbed from the air or
from the web.  We  have a 'no nonsense' attitude  and guard it
well. Hope you're with us, please inform your friends.

Dear friend/intrestee,

long time no DFM NewsLetter, although there's so much we
wanted to tell you! Running this station takes so much
realtime that we most of the time have to drop the theory:)

Next to some new programs, we want to draw your attention to
the SPECIAL 'Next Five Minutes' weekend broadcast(s) happening
in the weekend of 12/13/14 march 1999. Read on!

A whole year we have been broadcasting every weekend live
following our online program schedule, mostly we did start
much earlier and would stop much later:) Next to the regular
weekend we tried to serve as much live signal as possible,
in which we succeeded, according to our telephone-bill.

There were many network jams and live broadcasts coming from
festivals, exotic locations, peoples homes and other studioos
which added a lot to the special atmosphere which makes DFM
DFM. The operators had fun, the technicians endulged, the
regulars regularly got enchanted and visitors we're suprised.
In short it was a great year! Take a look at the guestbook to
see how people react! And while you're there,leave a message!

These new cool programs have been added recently, which
increases our regular broadcasting schedule to minimal 28
live hours every weekend.

We're working on getting a cable-modem installed which means
that we have to pay only a small fee to be online 24 hours a
day, untill now we have been doing all this on a dial-up basis
because that was the only way possible. Last month we received
a telephonebill of Hfl.1300.-- (about US$ 650), that's a whole
month-income to the one who is paying the bill! To be honest
with you, this whole thing untill now has been paid only by
this person. Please please please, support him (DFM) where
possible! Because so much practical work to be done there's no
time to get into some decent fund raising, so here's an appeal
directly to you/your organisation: SUPPORT DFM!

During the weekend of 12/13/14 march 1999 the 3th
international conference on tactical media "Next 5 Minutes"
will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. There will be many
signals coming from this event full of lectures, workshops,
forums, demonstrations, performances, films/ videos. There
will be several webcasts (A/V), FM_radio and television
broadcasts which will interact where possible.

Troughout the conference DFM will:
- broadcast a mix of all of the availlable media
- have interviews and jam with conference visitors
- demonstrate DFM webcasting as a continuing workshop
- present the DFM website live on big screen/speakers,
  while being in broadcast from there. Interact!!
- create interaction between our listeners and the event

Also DFM will:
- host friday/saturday/sunday-nights multi-channel jams
- experiment with an inhouse developped multi-channel
  multi-media monitor to easily ZAP between all availlable
  audio and "video" channels and to receive Small News Flashes
  about where the action is.

Expect us to be active at CET (GMT+1) times:
FRIDAY  : 12:00-24:00 => Peek: 20:00-04:00
SATURDAY: 00:00-24:00 => Peek: 20:00-04:00

                              MIKE DAVIS

                   The Political Economy of Disaster:
            From Victorian Famines to Postmodern Apocalypses

                     Date: May 31 - June 11 1999


                           COURSE SESSIONS
        * The Great Drought (1876-79)
        * A World's End? (Famines of 1896-1902)
        * Late Victorian World Economy
        * The Environmental Impact of Imperialism
        * 'Prisoners of Starvation:' The Politics of Repressive Famine
        * Representing Famine
        * The Literary Destruction of Los Angeles
        * The Dialectic of Ordinary Disasters
        * Wild in the Streets
        * Magical Urbanism


The course draws on,in addition to material from his two recent books, the
research Mike Davisis currently completing. He has been working on the
major mortality events of the nineteenth century: the terrible famines in
China, India, Brazil, Ethiopia, and the East Indies at the end of the
Victorian era. Because these famines fall within the span of instrumental
meteorological record keeping, there is little doubt that El Nino events
were responsible for synchronized drought in all these cases. The book is
an attempt to distinguish between what the Chinese call 'bad weather' and
'bad system'.


                             MIKE DAVIS

A former meatcutter and long-distance truck driver. Mike Davis has taught
urban theory at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, was a
fellow at the Getty Institute of, and was recently awarded a MacArthur
Fellowship. The author of "Ecology of Fear", "City of Quartz" and
"Prisoner of the American Dream" he writes regularly for "The Nation",

If you live in Europe you may be able to pick up People Like Us and friends
on the radio soon.

The broadcast is comprised of live mixes recorded in England and America on
the radio plus studio recordings.

Featuring:  People Like Us alongside Mr Rotorvator, The Jet Black Hair
People, Wobbly, Don Joyce, Wet Gate, Chuckles and Cyclobe on KFJC, KPFA,
KBOO, Resonance FM and studio mixes - recorded between 1996 and 1999.

FSK FM - Hamburg, on 93.0 FM.  Wednesday 17 March.  12 pm (daytime!) - 2
pm (+0100 GMT).

EVOSONIC FM - Munich, on 96.0 FM.  Thursday 18 March.  11 pm - 12 am (+0100

If you have Astra Satellite you can pick this up all over Europe:

You have to find the TV-channel of DSF (Deutsches Sport Fernsehen).  If you
see the program
of the DSF you only have to change the Audio-frequency.  The
Audio-frequency of Evosonic FM is 7.38 (left channel) / 7.56 (right
channel). So you can see the pictures of the DSF and listen to the sounds
of Evosonic FM.  The thought of watching sport with a PLU mix sounds like
fun (if you like that sort of thing)...

Try and tune in if you are able.  At worst you might end up watching a
football match.
