So you couldn't make it on Thursday last?
Not to worry, you've got another chance. This coming Monday, March 1st, starting @ 10 AM, we'll be out there again, letting KPFA programmers and administration know they CANNOT continue to demand community funding while IGNORING issues right here in our, and what they claim is their, community.

As this video link shows, the possibly LEAD, ASBESTOS, and NUCLEAR RADIATION-CONTAMINATED DEBRIS from UC's decommissioned Bevatron nuclear particle accelerator is being transported down the length of University Ave., covered w\ nothing but an ordinary tarp, just half a block away from KPFA's studio doors, while KPFA programmers, and especially its news department, sit idly by. NOT A WORD of coverage on this issue.

This is unconscionable, especially during this time, when they're so busy touting themselves as a COMMUNITY-BASED radio station while demanding funding from the community. When asked about this issue, J.R. Valrey, Hard Knock Radio's `minister of information`, responded, "I only cover Black issues." And last Thursday, KPFA programmers Dennis Bernstein (Flashpoints) and Miguel Molina were approached directly by us re this issue. Dennis ran into the building, saying, "I have to do a piece on Africa," and Miguel promised to call us the next day for a phone interview during his Friday night program, La Onda Bajita. He never made that call.

So join us in letting KraPFA know that No Coverage of Community Issues will earn them NO COMMUNITY SUPPORT OR FUNDING. That's Monday morning, March 1st, 10AM until 4PM, @ the KPFA studio building.

SEE YOU THERE!
