The Crisis At KPFA & The Pacifica Network, “Making Sausage” Democracy
And A National Alternative Multi-Media Network
Sunday, February 18 at 6:30 PM in Fellowship Hall – 1924 Cedar St.
Public Forum Opens at 6:30 PM Event Starts at 7:00 PM
KPFA and Pacifica have recently been threatened with bankruptcy and the possible closure of the stations and network. The financial crisis at Pacifica has been ongoing for many years. This forum will look at the present crisis and the views of those who want bankruptcy or a loan. It will also discuss the failure of Pacifica and the stations to bring new listeners, become a multi-media platform, and meet the needs of millions of people who want a vibrant national and international alternative media – a media network that would provide a voice to counter the growing rise of racism, fascism, xenophobia, sexism and the threat of world war with the bashing of Russia, North Korea, Venezuela and China.
