Pacifica Campaign Action Alert

Keep the Pressure On!
Demand the Return of Democracy Now!

Pacifica station WBAI in New York continues to keep Democracy Now! off the air.

Call the WBAI tally room at (212) 209-2950 on Monday and Tuesday

Say NO to the censorship and harassment of Democracy Now! Keep calling until you feel you've been heard. Please be polite.

It is important that we keep the pressure on in the last two days of WBAIıs Spring Fund Drive. In the past, programs yanked during the fund drive never return.

Your voice is important! Protest WBAI managementıs harassment and censorship of Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! and demand that Democracy Now! be played in full, every day.

1. Call the WBAI tally room at (212) 209-2950 Monday and Tuesday. Say NO to the censorship and harassment of Democracy Now! Keep calling until you feel you've been heard. Please be polite.

2. Picket WBAI in New York City Monday and Tuesday. The pickets will run from 7:30-9:00 am in front of WBAI at 120 Wall St., in lower Manhattan. Monday and Tuesday morning are the last days of the Fund Drive Picket. Join us for coffee, bagels and protest at 120 Wall Street. And remember, weekday afternoon pickets run from 4:30-6:00 pm every working day in front of the station, fund drive or not.

3. Pressure Pacifica National Board Vice Chair Ken Ford to resign. Ken Ford works at the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), which among other things lobbies against environmental standards, handicapper accessibility rules, and other constraints on unfettered profits for the housing industry.

NAHB is having a national conference starting June 5 and continuing through the weekend. With your help, we're going to make Ken Ford's impending resignation the topic of that conference.

At the following Web address, you can send a letter to more than 500 NAHB leaders throughout the country at the click of a button:
