PROTEST at KPFA to
-- Save Women's Magazine
-- Restore the Program Council
-- Demand Democracy, Accountability and Community Programming Controlled by the Community at our radio station!

It is not only feminist/womanist voices that are being silenced. There is no specifically African American show. Many other communities are ignored or marginalized at KPFA. Unpaid staff have been harassed and prevented from organizing. The program council, which is mandated by bylaws, has been disbanded.

Demand that community radio be accountable to the community!

§Demonstration Cancelled due to Partial Victory
by Kate Tuesday May 19th, 2009 12:11 PM
Late last week, we were informed that Women's Magazine will be going back on the air June 1. Therefore, we decided to cancel the demonstration. However, we are still being evaluated to decide whether the show will continue, so please join our facebook group (Save KPFA Women's Magazine) and subscribe to our blog (kpfawomensmag.blogspot.com) to keep up with what's going on.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
