Stand Up For Free Speech At KPFA
Press Conference At KPFA
Friday 10/8/21 12:00 PM Noon
1929 MLK Blvd.
The attacks on democratic governance continues by the management and their supporters at KPFA.
Pacifica bylaws provide that the Local Station board which is elected by the members and staff should do oversight of the budget on and evaluate the manager.
At last month’s Local Station Board meeting on September 18, 2021 during public comment, the Treasurer of the KPFA Local Station board told a public speaker who was also a candidate to “shut up” during public comment.
The budget which was supposed to be discussed and voted on had only been delivered to the board members hours before the meeting and the KPFA Business Manager Maria Negret personally attacked Local Station Board members that had questions on the budget.
We protest these attacks on listeners at KPFA and also call on the KPFA business manager to be held accountable for personally attacking LSB members who had questions on the budget. Thiis
contempt for democracy at KPFA must be challenged and halted now!
A motion to put off a vote was rejected by the majority of the board which is controlled by the so called “Protectors”.
The lack of transparency and respect of the listeners and LSB members by the management of KPFA
It also follows the fact that $80,000 was sent to New York lawyers supporting the shutdown of WBAI and the same Business Manger failed to pay property taxes that nearly brought about the sale of
tte property for not paying the taxes. This also was never reported to the LSB by the Treasurer and Business Manager.
We also will be speaking about the serious failure to have enough debates and voices of those running in the election. Following up on the lack of information on the bylaw voted tthe membershiip of KPFA as well as other stations are not being provided voices on the air and we will be calling for the election to be extended for anoother 30 days at all stations.
Sponsored by members of Rescue Pacifica & Supporters of democracy at KPFA Speakers Will Include KPFA LSB Members and supporters of KPFA
Make Sure To Vote For Those Who Will Stand Up For A Democratic KPFA & Pacifica

Elizabeth Milos --
Yes, thank you. Thank you so much. Yes, this goes directly towards money. Given that the last removed promotion was to follow the bylaws and give members the right to vote over the dispensation of assets. With this LSB would be willing to censor the members on this LSB board for repeatedly trying to put Pacifica in receivership via lawsuits and appeals, circumventing the same bylaws that you are talking about? That's one question. The next is in the realm of reimbursement to KPFA by the PNB, who will reimburse WBAI for the last lost revenue from being illegally closed down during the fun drive, and the legal fees to get them reopen. Number three is business manager beforehand, berated LSB member for asking for budget in advance, the LSB has a right to this. Also, she should have notified the LSB on the property tax issue during these past six years she didn't. And the status hustlers office had no file from kpsc come from KPFA regarding any kind of filing, and the name change actually happened after the actual taxes were due. So we were still late in filing the taxes at the time of the actual name change as well. So that is very, very typical argument on the part of Maria, excuse me, the business manager. I would also like to state that I'm very offended by the comments on the chat against a fellow LSB member James McFadden, he has a right to write a truthful article. And, in fact, what you are proposing with some members on the chat we're proposing was censorship. And I am very offended by the comments on the chat that you have. They're calling him a liar. The article was truthful, the one on Counter Punch, it has not been removed. The article is there and it was in response to an article written by Gendelman and which was read bedding and green bedding and it was very offensive that article so he had every right to write it as well. And I'd also like for to commend Tom Voorhees for, and I would
Sharon Adams (Sharon suddenly yells this in a loud voice) --
Time! Shut up! More lies being perpetrated is actually really annoying!

Christina Huggins --
I know. I know. I'm just let's keep order here. Okay. You want to call on the next person Jose?
