Saturday, August 28th
ILWU Local 34- labor forum
4 Berry Street
San Francisco, CA 94107-4pm
Who are the candidates for the election for the KPFA Local Station Board and where do they stand on what KPFA should
be doing on labor coverage and making KPFA a real voice for working people in the Bay Area and Pacifica nationally?
Should KPFA should be playing a major role in covering the labor movement and working class struggles and what happened
to the KPFA Labor Collective? Why is there no regular weekly one hour labor show at KPFA when there are regular
one hour labor shows on WBAI in New York, KPFK in Los Angeles and KPFT in Houston? These are some of the issues that will be discussed at this labor forum
on what's happening at KFPA and Pacifica and how it can be made a beacon for working people.
The slate that is supporting a regular labor program and KFPA and a Labor Department at KFPA is
