Earth Day 2005
On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day was held. People all over the world made promises to help the environment. Everyone got involved and since then, Earth Day has spread all over the planet.

The Eco Maya Festival at Barnsdall Park this weekend melds the sometimes divergent social movements for cultural preservation, ecological respect, and indigenous heritage. The Eco Maya project is working on a cohousing community called the Eco Maya village that combines the idea of the Eco Village with indigenous cultural preservation, for the living indigenous among us. (A community action statement from one of the organizers.)

As the summer approaches, numerous free festivals take over the parks of Los Angeles. Among the highlights are the Corn Festival in Highland Park, the Lotus festival at Echo Park, the Sol Festival. Below is a mural by Frank Romero titled Festival of Masks, depicting the annual Festival of Masks on Wilshire (which, unfortunately, is not happening this year). From the USC Metro Art Archives.

A support organization has formed for Billy Cottrell, a physics student accused of igniting Hummers in West Covina, in the name of the Earth Liberation Front. The ELF is not an organization, but a set of strategies and tactics for economic sabotage performed against developments and other ecological situations. Cottrell was arrested after months of searching, by tracing computer and security logs, and surveilling him in class. Previously, peace activist Josh Connole was mistakenly arrested under suspicion for the vandalism, causing great embarrasment for the police.

More Than Transportation is a weekend-long conference/workshop/festival about bicycles highlights the cultural, political, and mechanical aspects of bicycling in the ever-densifying, traffic-hostile smog cloud we (love and) call Los Angeles. info

Nitrogen is good for green lawns, but bad for sea life. A UNEP study shows that there is an annual "dead zone" off the SoCal coast, where oxygen depletion kills life in the sea. Is there life on Mars? Perhaps. Is there death on Earth? Most definitely, and it's created by people.
