Statement By WBAI LSB Chair Carolyn Mcintyre On 9/11 Attack On WBAI By Pacifica Board National Officers

The WBAI community is reeling but I am here to remind you no one is alone.

From: Carolyn Mcintyre

An amazing and colorful branch of the Pacifica tree, the lifeblood of democracy, is being sawed off. An interim Executive Director of Pacifica gone rogue with some Pacifica board members who couldn’t get board approval, is starting to turn WBAI into a repeater station. This 9/11 style attack on the WBAI community and Pacifica will be severe and costly. It's happening at a time when the station numbers were improving and the fall fund drive was off to a strong start. The abruptness will be harmful to Pacifica in the short and long run. This decision can be reversed.

The WBAI community is reeling but I am here to remind you no one is alone. There is solidarity in our community. We share our commitment to the mission to "engage in any activity that shall contribute to a lasting understanding between nations, and individuals of all nations, races, creeds and colors; gather and disseminate information on the causes of conflict between any and all of such groups...obtain access to sources of news not commonly brought together in the same medium...promote the full distribution of public information."

Here is what we can do:

-Continue to gather and share information and resources at The Commons all week.
make sure to vote in the current ongoing LSB election

-Come to the WBAI LSB Meeting on Wednesday starting at 7:30 PM. YWCA 30 3rd Avenue, Between Atlantic Ave and State Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217
stay informed and work to get the word out, contact your elected officials.

-Call or text any of the LSB for support and information.

I can be reached at 917-757-6542.
