The censors and hijackers at KPFK and PACIFICA are growing increasingly isolated.
JESSE JACKSON AND ACTOR DANNY GLOVER CALL ON PACIFICA MANAGEMENT TO STOP BLOCKING HISTORIC BROADCASTS OF DEMOCRACY NOW! FROM UN WORLD CONFERENCE AGAINST RACISM
Reverend Jesse Jackson and actor/civil rights activist Danny Glover have called on the management of the Pacifica Radio Network to stop blocking the historic broadcasts of its daily radio show Democracy Now! from the UN World Conference Against Racism.
"It's unconscionable that Pacifica would not broadcast Democracy Now! from these very important proceedings," said civil rights activist and actor Danny Glover, who is attending the conference. "The fact that Pacifica is not broadcasting Democracy Now! is appalling."
Democracy Now! is the only radio program in the U.S. devoting its daily hour-long broadcast to live radio coverage from the UN World Conference Against Racism. The show is broadcasting interviews with the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Danny Glover, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Rigoberta Menchu, women activists from India's Dalit, or untouchable, caste, South African trade union leaders, and NGO activists from around the world.
"It was not right for the U.S. to walk out, it was unnecessary for Israel to walk out," said Reverend Jesse Jackson, "and Pacifica as the access voice for racial and gender equality should not walk out, but should open up the airwaves and let people, let the Pacifica family hear these words."
Does KPFK still believe in the PACIFICA MISSION STATEMENT?
" To obtain access to news sources not commonly brought together in the same medium; and to employ varied sources to present accurate and comprehensive news on all matters that vitally affect our community."
