Dr. Nayvon Gordon is a strong advocate for public health for all with single payer and also against the expansion of wars abroad including in Ukraine and in Asia.
He spoke recently at KPFA on these issues and also to oppose the pro-war propaganda by programmer such as Ian Masters who in on the air 9 hours a week including in drive time.

As an Oakland physician, I have listened to KPFA for some thirty years and now I am running for the Board of KPFA in order to return the radio station, founded by a pacifist, to its roots—educating and organizing the people against militarism and war. One of the greatest danger the world faces is the continued escalating war in Ukraine by the US and NATO combined with the US aggression towards China. Every day the US and NATO make new plans to expand the war with more weapons and troops, which if not stopped, will take us to a nuclear confrontation. It has been said that the first casualty of war is the truth. Pacifica/KPFA must take a stand as a voice of the people to confront the misinformation and propaganda of the mass media and intelligence services to help the American people see the true nature of this war, the causes of the war, the damage done to the world by this war and the need for the people to take action against the violent, confrontational imperialist policy of the US before a World War develops, A public radio station, created by pacifists has a duty to seek the truth. I will do my best to help the people see beyond the ideology, propaganda, lies, misinformation and gas-lighting.

Plattform Of Rescue Pacifica
Here is our platform:
We are a group of KPFA listeners and staff, who value KPFA in our lives, as well as the Pacifica Foundation and the services it provides to 5 radio stations in major metropolitan areas across the country, the historic archives, 250 local affiliate stations, and Pacifica’s role as the only nationwide community radio network in the US. We came together because others whose aims are counter to Pacifica’s mission statement and bylaws have been working to gain control of KPFA and the other stations.
