Since last December's Christmas Coup by the Pacifica Foundation
at WBAI, the imposed Interim Station Manager, Utrice Leid, has
unleashed a wave of firings, bannings and censorship of progressive
programmers. The Pacifica National Board - increasingly dominated by
illegally seated corporate reps - is the power behind Leid. This is
their latest effort to eliminate radical programming at all five
Pacifica stations (including on Democracy Now!).
Don't contribute funds towards Pacifica's repressive management,
slick public relations mouthpieces, anti-union lawyers, security
guards - or now an unwarranted video surveillance system. Empower
listeners! Support listener elections to the Local Advisory Board.
CUT OFF THE FUEL for this machine and TURN UP THE HEAT until the
board hijackers resign and Pacifica is democratized.
