WBAI SIEGE [RESOLVED].* Local activists arrested, locks changed, personnel fired, armed guards installed at Pacifica's New York station in late 2000. Problems resolved after community control restored to Pacifica national governing board.
Progressive, free speech radio is under siege. The chair of Pacifica Foundation has threatened to close and sell "its" flagship station, KPFA, which has broadcast progressive news and analysis for 50 years. Please keep up with news of the crisis and participate in efforts underway to take back KPFA, as reported at the Web sites listed below, among others:
* Analysis by Belinda Griswold, Media Alliance
* My correspondence with Pacifica's now-FORMER PR firm
