Exit Only: Ken Ford out of Pacifica

by Cayce Callaway 2:52pm Tue Jul 10 2001

Local free speech activists joined thousands nationwide today in a National Day of Action calling for the resignation of Pacifica Board Chair Ken Ford.

As part of the campaign, letters and informational materials linking Ford's actions on the Pacifica Board to union busting, lockouts, mass arrests, censorship, sexism and race baiting were distributed at the Building Industry Association of Southern California in Diamond Bar. Office staff at the BIA refused entry to the activists. They were instructed, instead, to slide the letter and brochure under the door. Another action will take place this afternoon at the BIASC Membership Drive and Mixer at the Sagebrush Cantina, 23527 Old Calabasas Rd. from 5:30 - 8:00 pm.
