Come to Washington, DC Nov. 17-18
For the Pacifica Foundation Board of
All hands are needed in DC to help stop the destruction of the
network that we cherish and need. The illegitimate majority on the
Pacifica Board declared war on its traditions and its listeners when
they stacked the board on Sept. 19th on a shamefully conducted
conference call "meeting." Meanwhile, they continue to squander
donated funds on high-priced law firms and PR flacks and fire and
ban the network's top talent.
On Saturday and Sunday, Nov, 17-18, they will show their faces in
Washington at an as-yet undisclosed hotel, for another sham meeting.
The Pacifica reform movement will be there in great number, to hold
them accountable and put a stop to their illegal and destructive
dealings. Forums, protests, vigils and other established, creative
and Constitutionally-protected forms of SPEAKING TRUTH TO
POWER will be employed to save Pacifica from this clique of
In the coming weeks, we will be contacting you daily with two
principle goals: to give you detailed information on these Board
members, their hired guns, and their plans for Pacifica, and to ask
you to join in concerted action to serve these people notice that
there is a very vocal mass movement, that isn't going away, that
intends to save Pacifica.
Together, WE WILL WIN. Pacifica is needed now more than
ever, as mass media and our government itself become controlled by
fewer and fewer corporate interests, and as global grief is
perverted into a shrill cry for war from the oilmen running
Washington and their propagandists.
While the junta running Pacifica spurns coverage of the war from
a pacifist perspective, we can support and benefit from the work of
the burgeoning Pacifica Network in Exile, including Free Speech
Radio News, Democracy Now! in Exile, wbix.org - WBAI Radio in Exile on the internet and
the new sister project, WPFW in Exile in DC, and the growing roster
of "affiliates in exile," community stations that have broken
relations with Pacifica and have joined in the struggle.
That same weekend will see thousands protesting the US Army's
School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia (http://soaw.org/), and at
the hastily-rescheduled IMF/World Bank meetings, to be held in
Ottawa (http://globalizethis.org/). The weekend of Nov.
17-18th will be a vital moment as we reclaim our patriotic tradition
of peaceful protest. Please plan on being with us for this critical
JOIN US in our daily actions to hold accountable the Pacifica
Board majority and their hired guns. JOIN US in Washington,
DC on the weekend of Nov. 17 - 18 as we unleash an avalanche of
protest to save the Pacifica radio network.
