Lawrence Ferlinghetti Speaks to Pacifica Board
by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Lawrence Ferlinghetti attacked those who are working to destroy community radio by censoring and totalitarian tactics at the station. The present managements and their supporters KPFA and KPFK fit the mold and are now engaged in a red baiting campaign charging that Pacifica has been taken over by Workers World Party and the Green Party. This is the propaganda of the latest corporate group called "New Day Pacifica" led by former CNA executive Beth Kean.
She has been supported by Sonali Kolhatkar, Ian Masters, Conn Hallinan and Larry Bensky. They are using redbaiting to attack Pacifica and support a corporate restructuring that would take away elected local station boards. This is indeed what Ferlinghetti was speaking about with former coupster Pat Scott. The battle continues.
