WIKIpedia is not what we readers Thought nor is it even current about Pacifica or KPFK (tags)
Looking at Pacifica and KPFK pages: Wikipedia so widely used and well thought of is not what the reputation claims nor it’s image intends – There is some information there, but it is edited so strictly by some power-players who claim it as ‘their own’ so possessively …so that many other verifiable & valuable informative writers are excluded and shunted out.
Vigil for O'Day, Helen, Barry, and Carol-Ann Short, killed by racist terrorists in Fontana (tags)
January 23, 2016
FONTANA - A group of about 20 Fontana residents and local activists gathered yesterday evening outside of Randall Pepper Elementary School to commemorate the 1945 firebombing of the house owned by O'Day Short, an African-American targeted for racist violence for challenging white supremacy in the segregated city by daring to purchase a house on the south side of Baseline Avenue. Short, his wife Helen, and their two children Barry and Carol-Ann were all killed as a result of the December 16, 1945 firebombing. The incident, when eventually investigated, and even then only superficially, never led to any arrest or prosecution of any suspect, despite evidence pointing to death threats from the white real estate agent who sold the property and two white deputies of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.1 The vigil lasted about an hour-and-a-half, and featured words from the attendees, political discussion, and prayer.
KPFK of long ago had different views.... (tags)
A KPFK FOLIO of 1967 has editorial that shows how closer to it's origins there was open discussion and sharing with listeners ideas, questions, and even the monthly mailing of a filmy printed schedule with original artworks, poetry and even an editorial. This is one found that seems to talk about 'those long ago' days and times but that also reveals a different attitude that was then Available and Allowed at Our Radio Station. KPFK 90.7 FM radio.
White Supremacists tied to human trafficking and a series of unsolved murders (tags)
This is an long but worthwhile article that specifies the link between white supremacist hate groups in the United States, human trafficking and a series of unsolved murders. I hope someone uses this information usefully. I hope this shuts these morons up for good. We all deserve to live in peace without any white supremacists causing any more problems for anyone.

Pacifica IS also KPFK, so let's not ignore what going on (tags)
Pacifica is struggling with who is it's new Executive Director with much dramatic flurries, acting outs, resistances, alliances, and stories barely coming out, even on internet. A few reports of happenings is being sent out to the 'rest of us' by Tracy Rosenberg, a former termed out PNB member. We here in LA are playing dumb and treated as if we were even dumber...muted actually. see her site for other stories and commentators too.
Home-less-free occupying is not a free ride either (tags)
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.
Q: are we safely anonymous on Indy or can someone chose to find us for their personal ... (tags)

Singer Justin Utley: Gay Ex-Mormon Tells His Story in Music (tags)
Justin Utley grew up Mormon in a suburb of Salt Lake City. He was raised to believe he was one of the "Chosen People" — until he started realizing that his emotional, romantic and sexual interests lay with men and not women. On the advice of the church, he spent four years in so-called "reparative therapy" trying to "cure" himself of being Gay. Then he decided to be who he was created to be and not what his repressive church wanted him to be, and in two full-length CD's and his inspirational single "Stand for Something" he's set his struggle to powerful, intense music.

I wondered about those who intentionally live someone else’s life and headed to the 2012 Celebrity Impersonator Convention and Awards in Las Vegas.

NEXT QUESTION ON STRAUSS-KAHN: Was He Set Up? (tags)
The questions include the convenience of having someone who regularly launders drug money in amounts around $100,000, they could easily hide the payments for making false accusations among the other cash payments laundered for drug dealers. There are reasons to destroy the credibility of a powerful Socialist candidate for French President before the elections. In addition, there are the globalists who dislike the way DSK was running the IMF and World Bank, trying to play fair by preventing third world nations from incurring further debts.

Venice Homeless Protect LAPD Order to vacate public sidewalk after 9pm, Aug 26, 2010 (tags)
On Aug 26. 2010 LAPD Officers not familiar with Venice sent to enforcement LAMC 41.18(d) a direct violation of the Jones vs City of Los Angeles settlement Agreement, on 3rd Street between Sunset Ave and Rose Ave. Video evidence taken by Lisa Green. A transcript of most of the proceedings are provided. Names of Officers and the persons which were enforced to leave the sidewalk after having settled to sleep are not provided to protect those being used to pit us against each other using fear. However, I will make the video tape available to the appropriate persons upon request so that we can address this misuse of power and criminalization of those defined as homeless.

¡Reforma Sí! ¡Migra No! Inland Empire stands with Arizona (tags)
Saturday, May 1, 2010
SAN BERNARDINO - Large crowds of people from throughout the Inland Empire gathered in San Bernardino to march for the human rights of immigrants and to denounce the racist Arizona law SB 1070. La Plaza Park on San Bernardino's east side was the point of convergence, and music and announcements welcomed the arrivees until about 11, when the ranks began making their way down the sidewalk and across the 215 bridge toward city hall, where a rally was held with music and speeches. Peaceful resistance was the spirit of the day, and careful attention to hydration and mutual respect among attendees was the hallmark of the day's beauty.

CENSORSHIP AT INDYMEDIA REPEATS AGAIN and AGAIN (tags)
Indymedia every so too often decides to CENSOR an article by hiding it from public view..but based on nothing more than it's own group's version of what they like politically or an article that someone there with the power of that clever click who has decided what was offered to the LA public readers now needs to be "gone !" out of sight ! Why they do this is unrevealed and non-transparent. And LA.Indymedia offer no way to reverse their discriminating acts either as there is no one ‘home’ when a letter is written to email@example.com either !”

LAPD suppresses radical art space (tags)
Imagine a place where people can come together to exchange ideas, create art, play music, and otherwise invest in a better world, starting here and now in Los Angeles. Some LA heads went beyond imagining and created it. After many hours of hard work and planning, they finally opened it up to the community to host a hip hop show, a benefit for next month's anarchist bookfair. The crowd was mostly young people from a variety of backgrounds and different parts of the city. Some of us were painting and organizing for the first Los Angeles Really Really Free Market, but mostly people were just bobbing their heads to the beats. We were obviously a threat to the system and the American way of life.

Paul Krugman: It's fair to be uncivil when liberty is at stake (tags)
'One of the problems with media coverage of this administration," wrote Eric Alterman in The Nation, "is that it requires bad manners." He's right. There's no nice way to explain how the Bush administration uses cooked numbers to sell its tax cuts, or how its arrogance and gullibility led to the current mess in Iraq. So it was predictable that the administration and its allies, no longer very successful at claiming that questioning the president is unpatriotic, would use appeals to good manners as a way to silence critics. Not, mind you, that Emily Post, the doyenne of etiquette, has taken over the Republican Party: The same people who denounce liberal incivility continue to impugn the motives of their opponents.
LA FreeCycling - Join the recyling revolution (tags)
The LA Freecycle Network is open to all cities and to all individuals who want to "recycle" that special something rather than throw it away. Whether it's a chair, a fax machine, piano or an old door, feel free to post it. Or maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself! One constraint: everything posted must be free. And, as Abe Lincoln once said, "Think globally, recycle locally."

The New Mafia (tags)
Now consider the upset that occurs today when someone suggests that there is a criminal conspiracy, much like the Italian Mafia that is operating again, only on a bigger scale, and instead of being run by the Italians, it is run by Israelis. The reactions by these gangsters and their controlled mouthpieces, the media, (and in particular, right-wing talk show hosts) are almost identical to the reactions by Italian gangsters and their defenders in the last century. People are branded as racists, bigots, jealous, envious, and now, thanks to 50 years of daily propaganda, Nazis.
