Pacifica Fightback Town Hall, Oct. 31 – Don’t Be Scared into Abandoning Democracy!

New Day's Pacifica Restructure - Trick or Treat? by Pacifica Fightback Why is democracy under attack at Pacifica and in the US? Is the NDP Petition a solution or part of the problem? There is a new Bylaws petition to restructure Pacifica circulating. Signing it amounts to signing away your rights to local elected representation or oversight and abolishing collective control of the Foundation’s destiny by Pacifica members. New Day Pacifica (NDP)  tried to scare people into eliminating democracy and diversity at Pacifica by raising the specter [...]

Free Press in the Dock: Assange Railroad Nears Terminal

This court case is like the 'Pentagon Papers' on steroids.  And yet: Only five people (including Craig Murray) are being allowed into the public gallery at the Old Bailey. The mainstream media are suppressing details of the case and the court proceedings. The magistrate in charge is acting like a CIA agent - railroading Assange to be extradited. You will not get a clearer report of the court proceedings than in Craig Murray's online blog. https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/case  from which this report is excerpted: It is hard to believe, [...]

Pacifica Pirates At It Again

Do NOT sign the "New Day Pacifica" Same Old Anti-Democratic Agenda Petition   THEY'RE B-A-A-A-C-K!   Just as Pacifica is gearing up to cover the critical 2020 election, the same people who brought us the costly shut-down and take-over of WBAI last fall, who forced Pacifica to waste over $150,000 to conduct a Bylaws replacement referendum, and who were rejected by nearly 2-1 margins of both listeners and staff around the network who voted a resounding "NO!" on that Bylaws proposal, are singing another verse of the [...]

Peace Center on the Chopping Block

SAVE THE LOS ANGELES PEACE CENTER! Update: CA Attorney General has blocked the sale. Since 1989, the Peace Center, created and funded through the generosity of Aris Anagnos, has provided rent-free offices and meeting spaces to diverse peace and justice groups throughout Los Angeles, enabling them to focus on the work they do best: educating and organizing for justice.

Undemocratic Pacifica Bylaws Change Defeated

Replacement Bylaws Defeated by 2-1 Vote of Listeners, Staff by Michael Novick Listeners and workers at KPFK and four other Pacifica stations, in unprecented numbers -- nearly 1/4 of all listener members and more than half of all paid and unpaid staff members -- decisively voted down a proposed Bylaws revision by margins of almost 2-1: 66% of listeners who voted, and 65% of the staff, opposed the replacement Bylaws, which would've eliminated elected Local Station Boards and made it easier to sell off assets. Perhaps it's [...]

Vote “NO!” on Pacifica’s Anti-Democratic Bylaws Revision

Vote "NO!" on Pacifica's Anti-Democratic Bylaws Revision by Grassroots Community Radio Coalition www.gcrc-socal.org A court in Berkeley has ordered the Pacifica Foundation to conduct a vote on a total Bylaws revision, masquerading as an amendment, and because of financial and other issues, Pacifica is unable to contest the order, brought by the same hijackers who recently took WBAI in NY off the air, replacing local programmers with piped in content from KPFK and KPFA, and seriously damaging the NY station and its fundraising until the national Board [...]
