Mayoral candidate and former KPFA LSB member and Pacifica executive director Dan Siegel and his company partners are seeking to bleed Pacifica of tens of thousands of dollars. They engineered a corporate take-over of the Pacifica board and illegally fired Summer Reese and are now spending tens of thousands of dollars for the, hiring lawyers including Hunter Pyle formerly from his own firm to fight to keep control of the Pacifica Foundation and bleeding funds from the community stations the programmers. This is taking place while WBAI in New York has no funds to pay to keep it’s phones on. So much for saving the network.
Corporate family member Jose Luis Fuentes who took Siegel’s position on the board and without being on the Pacifica board for one month personally made the illegal motion at 4:00AM EST in the morning to fire Reese. The Siegel “lawyer” Fuentes had also failed to notify all the board members that action would be taken to remove Summer which is required under the bylaws. This is yet another example of the “lawyers” at the Siegel and company law firm. They are now petitioning the court to get the police to raid the Pacifica Foundation and arrest the occupiers. This is the same group “Save KPFA” and their supporters at KPFA who also called the police on KPFA unpaid Black community programmer Nadra Foster who was beaten up by the police and then banned by KPFA management and Pacifica. Dan Siegel who was on the KPFA board at the time and said he was “surprised” that the police would beat up a Black women in Berkeley. This corporate coup must be opposed by all who support democratic community radio and want to stop the planned bankruptcy of the Pacifica Foundation organized by this crew.
It is time to call a halt to this wrecking operation and demand and end to his corporate take-over of Pacifica and KPFA.
Call and Fax Siegel ,Yee and Company and demand that they get their crooked hands off Pacifica and KPFA. They have already done enough damage at KPFA and Pacifica.
