Organizing for Action ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ San
2013-05-27 2:20 PM
As wildfire season commences in California, a local group of citizens is stepping forward on May 29 to ask Rep. Judy Chu of Pasadena to address the cause of the increase in fires by taking a leadership role in Congress on climate change legislation and resources, including ending the sequester which harms California's ability to combat fires..

Taking over public areas by homeless means overuse not moderate fair-share-use
2014-01-29 4:18 PM
Homeless folk are wanting their own bill of rights, it is noted. And yet the actual difference between those without inside living spaces to reside within and the others who find some way to share space, rent space, trade for space, and thus live indoors may be one of more than money they have available for rent.
The sharing of public park spaces, or sand, sidewalk spaces with those who Reside there [live in the public spaces and thus do not share those spaces] and those who want to just temporarily sit or enjoy that space for a short time seems to be in conflict. (text/plain + 70 comments)

Indymedia being inundated by repeaters
drowned out here
2014-02-14 11:38 AM
A few commentators insist on obliterating any article they disagree or dont like by writing many repeated exhortations and insults and more...to insure the article looses it's main points or gets overwhelmed with other-than-that-person's viewpoint. In other words, some commentators attack profusely to blot out anyone but their agreers. Unfairly, Uncivilly. Hoping to Reduce INDEPENDENCE into obedience and agreement only ???

Exposing jewish voice for Peace
2013-07-09 6:35 AM
Important new report from NGO Monitor, on Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) , which views itself as the “Jewish wing” of the Palestinian solidarity movement.
From NGO Monitor:
Though JVP regards the organized Jewish community as its “enemy” and “opponent,” it nonetheless demands a seat at the communal table. The strategy, as stated by JVP’s executive director Rebecca Vilkomerson, is to create “a wedge” within the American Jewish community to generate the impression of polarization over Israel. The tactic is to dilute support for Israel in the Jewish community, toward the goal of reducing or eliminating the United States government’s economic, military, and political support for Israel.

Listen to KPFK's staff talking to Pacifica Exe Director
kpfk loyal volunteer
2014-03-29 7:31 PM
Listen to a KPFK interview with Summer Reese a few nights ago, produced and interview by Roy Tuckman and Eben Rey, available on Soundcloud.
Interesting to have direct verbal vocal information instead of so many other internet shades of grease that proliferate in trying to form stories and gossip and biased versions of what happened to whom. The direct person involved in the personnel issues of Pacifica are discussed here.
KPFK listeners called in and added opinions also.
Can the whole organization be saved and healed and repaired so it will not repeat [and again and again] ??? (text/plain + 16 comments)
Why is KPFK still failing to thrive ?

KPFK is more than intimately tied to it's umbrella leader Pacifica, whose latest Executive Director has been 'fired' by some of questionable authority and who refuses to accept the factionalization that predominates these radio stations operations.
But no actual factual information is ever available, not locally from KPFK or most other sites on line. Mostly the usual malicious attacking anyone else blurbs are found online.
Why do we who pay dearly to subscribe, to be members, to sponsor KPFK programs [tho we may not chose to pay for all pgrms presented there, if given any free choices ] . We, outside the sacred halls of radio station know NOTHING from our local sources of KPFK or Pacifica 'news' and information Finally 1 site just went up, see below.
Just recently a new site went up that allows no comments but is intended to take a side in the national malicious arguments on line about who runs the Pacifica PNB [nat’l board] and petitions are included therein.
and also maybe tour thru facebook
to learn a bit more about what is dramatically occurring in Pacifica’s Berkley offices. To search out what may be factual or actual from what are marketing-promotional or negative-attack-ads blurbs takes hours of time and reading and is uncompensated ‘work’ just to know where even our KPFK dollars are being spent or set up to be wasted.
And other than a midnight interview that was not heard by the great majority of KPFK listeners gave a hint of what is happening to Pacific, about it’s Executive Director, and the future of the whole set of radio stations affiliated and dependent on some structure that is stable and honest…if possible.

Home-less-free occupying is not a free ride either
2014-03-24 8:46 PM
Another article written on LA Indy was full of comments that derided the author as if that answered the question of how the everywhere-living-homeless in LA have used up what were spaces intended for the general public - for children, for athletes, for elderly, for the tired, the disabled, the visitors. And no blame is made but the reality is noted and forthrightly stated. No PC necessary. No attack the writer is needed. No solutions are available, apparently. (text/plain + 10 comments)
