Pacifica Hijacking Fascists Shove Another Big Boot In The Mouth Of Free Speech

by sam Thursday, Feb. 22, 2001 at 10:38 PM

Under threat of legal action from the Board Hijackers, WBAIFREE.ORG has pulled its content this afternoon.

While proclaiming adherence to the Founder's values of free-speech community supporting radio out of one side of their mouth, the Pacifica Foundation's current clique of hijacking Board members have utilized Board member John Murdock's anti-union, anti-worker, anti-labor, anti health care law firm of Epstein, Becker and Green to seriously chill the efforts of a group of dedicated supporters, listeners, contributors and staff concerned with similar Board past and ongoing malfeasance.

Wbaifree.org currently displays the message:


is temporarily offline because of a threatening, untruthful letter from Pacifica's lawyers, received today.

These community and producer's pages were created independently in 1997, and have always been independent.

We are consulting a lawyer to defend us, if Pacifica's lawyers think they have a case to censor independent commentary, they should be immediately be fired for incompetence.

We will be back, but are proceeding cautiously.

Dave Burstein [addy snipped] February 21, 2001"

This is what democracy and free-speech looks like to these thugs temporarily misusing the Foundation, and their stooges *temporarily* occupying the local stations. Still wondering about those sonorous eloquent happy happy reassuring voices behind the mikes? Did YOUR pledge help pay for this?
