MISTAKES WERE MADE
The Long Haul Oral History Project, “MISTAKES WERE MADE”, brings stories about radical events in recent local history to you, told straight from the horse’s mouth- those who were there. The series is meant to keep these stories alive, to honor our local radical histories, and to reflect on and learn from recent history as it relates to current events.
The intention is to stick with historical narratives and first-person accounts, and we are excited about all the possibilities of topics: occupations, squats, movements, and actions, both that were inspiring as well as those that went horribly wrong (also an important part of our history!). This means we need members of the local radical community to come and share their stories. If there’s one thing the Long Haul does well, it’s attracting people who have been around a while. But we’d really like to extend the invitation also to people we might not know who have participated in the wide variety of radical tendencies and activities that make up our rich local radical history.
Please contact us with ideas and proposals for events!

MISTAKES WERE MADE, Long Haul’s Oral History Night series presents our second monthly installment, brought to you as usual on the third Sunday of the month:
Esotericism/ Occultism in the BeastBay circa mid-1980s to mid-1990s
with Lew Finzel and friends.
This time, we’re getting EVEN MORE weird and freaky, while still making some sort of attempt to tie it back to radical politics and current events!
Come see the spectacle (and participate…if you dare).

Come hang out at the Long Haul and work on our Zine Archive Project with us: re-organizing and cataloging our amazing collection of 15,000 (ish) zines. We will be creating catalog records (on computers) and organizing zines by subject. Bring your computer if you can and/or food and music to share. We are planning on having coffee and food as well as good music. Seriously though, we have really cool zines.

Workshop and Meeting on Saturday, November 19th at the Long Haul Infoshoppe – 3124 Shattuck Ave. Berkeley, CA
1pm – 2:00 Radical Mycology: Decomposing industrial toxins and feeding ecological stability with mushrooms w/ Maya
This interactive power-point workshop will explore some of the ways that humans can reintegrate in to our ecosystems by working with fungi. We’ll talk about basic fungal biology, ecological restoration with fungi, mycophilosophy, mycogardening, basic mushroom cultivation techniques, mushroom identification and more.
2:00pm – 3:00 First ever Radical Mycology group meeting!
Hey, anyone wanna work on mycorestoration projects, grow mushrooms cheaply and sustainably, hunt mushrooms, start a community mushroom lab, make mushroom paper, or some other cool mushroom project? The possibilities are endless! Let’s have a meeting to talk about our ideas. Bring snacks to share if you want to. If you can’t come, but you wanna be involved, contact email@example.com
We see the use of fungal species for environmental betterment as an extension of “radical” or “deep” ecology, which considers all beings as having an inherent value and interdependence. Through our collaboration with fungi, we are attempting to challenge assumptions about the importance of the fungal kingdom in an effort to help shift our relationship to the Earth toward greater harmony. One of the things that distinguishes radical mycology from some of the other things going on in mycology is that the kind of mycology work that we’re supporting is very cheap or free, are very DIY and seek to reduce our reliance on the globalized industrial capitalist system. Mycogardening, mushroom cultivation, mushroom identification, mushroom paper-making are skills that can help us live outside of that system, and build a sustainable future.

The MAGIC TRIP is a freewheeling portrait of Ken Kesey and the Merry Prankster’s fabled road trip across America in the legendary Magic Bus. In 1964, Ken Kesey, the famed author of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” set off on a legendary, LSD-fuelled cross-country road trip to the New York World’s Fair. He was joined by “The Merry Band of Pranksters,” a renegade group of counterculture truth-seekers, including Neal Cassady, the American icon immortalized in Kerouac’s “On the Road,” and the driver and painter of the psychedelic Magic Bus. Kesey and the Pranksters intended to make a documentary about their trip, shooting footage on 16MM, but the film was never finished and the footage has remained virtually unseen until now.

Yet another meeting on Sunday – Oct. 30 – 7 pm
We support the occupation and taking up public space to form community, but we also want to continue to cherish and improve the spaces that are solidly (more or less) ours, that we’ve poured love and labor into over the years, so….
An opportunity for the larger Long Haul community who don’t usually come to meetings to discuss what Long Haul should do with the space
- What we’re doing right
– What we could do better
– What we should start doing
– What we should cut out
Have your voice heard!
* The idea is to have a fun, welcoming social space wheere we share thoughts and ideas about the Long Haul, with hopes of consistently improving on it, keeping it relevant, and giving everyone a chance to sound off on it.

Friday’s hearing is vacated and the judge will decide without oral argument. For details, see the attached court order I hope we are able to get the word out to everyone. This should portend nothing in particular for the motion.

This is a general update about the progress of the lawsuit.
The defendants objected to the magistrate who was originally selected to hear
the case so the case has been re-assigned to Judge Jeffrey White.
This means that the deadlines have changed. Now, the initial court appearance
(case management conference) will be on May 15, not April 20 as it was originally.
May 15 is a Friday — mark your organizer.
