Dear Friends of Amy Goodman & Free
Amy Goodman will be speaking in Los Angeles this Sunday, June
10th, at the National Lawyers Guild's annual dinner, where she will
receive a special award.
This will be a good chance to hear, first-hand, an up-to-date
report on how the embattled Goodman is defending free-speech radio
in the face of efforts by Pacifica's management to silence her and
move programming further to the right. It will also be a fine
opportunity for fans of Democracy Now! to show their support for Amy
Goodman and the battle to save Pacifica.
Those wishing to attend the entire dinner program may purchase
tickets for $75.00. (Reservations must be called in to Jim Lafferty,
at 323/653-4510, no later than 5:00 p.m. this Wednesday.) In
addition to Goodman, full dinner guests will hear Ronnie Dugger of
the Alliance for Democracy; the actress Gina Belafonte; and the Hon.
Jackie Goldberg, among others, and will get a full dinner.
Those wishing ONLY to hear Amy Goodman will be admitted to the
event for only $10.00--and no advanced reservation is necessary.
Place/Time: The event is at the Wilshire Grand Hotel &
Centre, 930 Wilshire Blvd., at Figueroa St. Those purchasing the
full dinner program should arrive at 5:30 p.m. for cocktails (dinner
is at 6:30 p.m.) Those purchasing only the portion of the program
featuring Amy Goodman should arrive at 7:00 p.m., in order to be
seated in time for her speech. (Goodman will begin speaking at about
