boycott kpfk

by democratic end Thursday, May. 24, 2001 at 6:17 AM
boycottkpfk.org 323-878-5680

A spirited demonstration of nearly 100 activists greeted KPFK's spring fund drive on May 16. The Pacifica Accountability Committee and others organized the effort, which was endorsed by several grassroots organizations and individuals.

A spirited demonstration of nearly 100 activists greeted KPFK's spring fund drive on May

16. The Pacifica Accountability Committee and others organized the effort, which was

endorsed by several grassroots organizations and individuals.



There was a banner of a corporate vulture, demonstrators in vulture masks and signs

calling for an end to the gag rule and supporting the boycott of Pacifica Radio stations.

A new web site www.boycottKPFK.org was announced, and there were bumper stickers to help

spread the word.



Veteran activist (and former KPFK programmer) Blase Bonpane told the crowd that Pacifica

was off course. "The course of the network is the Mission Statement, which comes from the

peace movement. And this station and the network are part, and have been part and parcel,

of the peace movement."



"We can't have a station dedicated to peace, justice and humankind behave in an inhuman

manner," Bonpane said. "We can't allow a monetarist spirit to enter this particular kind

of broadcasting. It wasn't set up to be a money maker."



Pacifica Campaign organizer (and former KPFK programmer) John Martinez described their

strategy. "It is a call for a boycott against the pledge drive," Martinez said. "It is not

an attack to kill or to damage Pacifica, but it is a way to get it back." Martinez told

the group that the diversity which was once the guiding philosophy of KPFK programming was

being lost, and that has to be turned around.



Activist Karen Pomer read a statement from Amy Goodman which exposed a bold lie broadcast

on KPFK. It had been announced that Goodman had refused to cooperate with KPFK and provide

fund drive programming. The statement read: "Wherever a General Manager of a Pacifica

station wants me to fund raise, I fund raise. Pacifica management informed me last week,

KPFK General Manager Mark Schubb did not want me to fund raise live on the air."



"So it is an outright lie," Pomer said, "what they said today on KPFK, and we need to let

as many people know about that as we can." Pomer told the cheering crowd that "turning up

the heat" on the Pacifica Board of Directors had just resulted in the resignation of Board

Treasurer Michael Palmer, an advocate of selling WBAI (New York).



The other speakers included Preston Wood (International Action Center), former KPFK

programmer Arturo Lemas, Lloyd Karch (Industrial Workers of the World), Casey Peters

(Californians for Proportional Representation, a group which helped with the recent KPFA

Board elections), Nancy Lawrence (Peace and Freedom Party) and Tom Camarella (Pacifica

Accountability Committee).



The Pacifica Campaign has since announced that there will be an informational picket

outside KPFK every weekday afternoon during the fund drive, from 4:00 - 6:00. There will

also be a national demonstration in support of Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! on

Thursday, May 24, from 3:30 - 6:30. For more information call (323) 878-5680.
