Video-UCB Striker/Organizer On Pacifica/KPFA And Coverage Of UC Strike Struggle

by Labor Video Project
Despite the fact that KPFA is located in Berkeley where a mass strike movement is developing it has been unable to cover the mass rallies live and even eliminated a segment on the strike which was on Democracy Now that played on November 17, 2009 and discussed the planned UCB strike on November 18, 2009. One strike activist is angry that KFPA and Pacifica have refused to properly cover this critical struggle.
