KPFA and Pacifica are part of the largest alternative media broadcast network in the United States. A press conference was held at KPFA in Berkeley on 10/8/21 to protest that public listeners are being told to "shut up” by the KPFA LSB Treasurer and Local Station Board members are also being personally attacked by the business manager for asking questions about a budget that was only submitted hours before a vote was demanded on it.
Speakers called for more transparency and for the election to be extended so more members would have the opportunity to vote.
