KPFK & Pacifica's Archives seem oddly silent about transitions. Any ? (tags)
Has anyone else heard what is happening to Pacifica’s [5 station’s] Archives ? Or what is planned, hoped for, funded or transitioning there ? Those treasures and no-where-else-held audio files contains so many years of very valuable recordings - much transferred from audio-tapes, CD’s or big huge tape reels, to sell, share or make available to the Public. We, the Public, all who have donated, paid, and volunteered there too. And more that needs to be transferred on to more modern technological resources that has to still be done. And who has tried to UPDATE what is happening or has happened [since early 2000’s] on WIKIPEDIA ? Anyone ? No one? No one cares to do this free work, if allowed by Wikipedia editors ?

KPFK: self-destructing? or is it again the usual dysfunctioning? (tags)
Recent comments have been heard : that the Pacifica National Board may want to replace current management/ staff without Informing, or Getting Input from the Shareholders who ‘own’ + pay + sustain the station. What details are kept secret, and the usual silence on-air gags all conversation, or any sharing of what is actually happening ? Contrary to claims of ‘open communications’ it is still only a 1-way communication coming from inside KPFK to us out here - and nothing allowed to exit from the hallowed station-office halls to the Paying Public - the one that keeps the station afloat. Why ? What maneuvers could be happening ? When will the Shareholders find out [oh, is it already too late ?] to participate in this upheaval or learn of the intentions to make major personnel changes at KPFK ? huh ?

SHOWDOWN IN LONG BEACH CONTINUES ? 14 and 17 Felonies for Co-defendants in medical marijua (tags)
In the continuing attack against medical marijuana collectives in California, DA Cooley refuses to drop charges against humanitarian and cannabis crusader Joe Grumbine. Joe Grumbine has rejected a felony deal that would force him to sign a paper agreeing that he is a criminal for operating a medical marijuana collective as allowed under sb420, California?s medical marijuana program act. Joe Byron offered to accept a plea if the government hacks would drop charges against Grumbine and allow them to operate legally as allowed under prop 215 and sb420.

INDYMEDIA CENSORS AGAIN ! WTH ? (tags)

Medical Marijuana Caregiver Convicted of Drug Dealing (tags)
Until May 28, 2008 John Ottombrino was just another yoga and massage teacher, giving lessons and alternative health information from his home in Kearny Mesa. Then police broke in his door and arrested him for cultivation of marijuana and possession with intent to sell. Though he was growing it for three medical marijuana patients and had letters from their doctors proving it, the cops ignored that evidence — and so did the judge at his trial, who wouldn't let him introduce evidence that he was providing caregiving services for his clients.

"We are in an epoch shift" (tags)
Free markets became wild markets. The post-socialist blessing became the turbo-capitalist curse. The state allowed the monitoring of banks to be de facto privatized. Politics allowed the markets to run wild. In turbo-capitalism, contracting debts was trendy and saving was Philistine.

Heath Insurance Bill Puts Poor at Risk (tags)
I got this in my email. The latest health care law is likely to pass, because progressive health care supporters are split on the issue. Unions are split on it. Political energy for real universal health care is being lost. This bill is similar to the one offered by the governor, but because it's sponsored by Speaker Nunez, the dealmakers have managed to get more liberal support for it. Working class and poor people need to organize to demand protections from the gaps in this bill.

Yesterday’s story leaked by U.S. Media that Bush threatened to bomb Pakistan after 9-11 is a diversion from the real story.

Banking on Our Ignorance: A holocaust denier is taken on by his cousin (tags)
The more ignorant or unfamiliar you are with and about statecraft, the easier people who want to perpetuate war can manipulate you. So committments to war or peace or radical sanity take form, and an intensifying radical's radical dialogue "becomes" between two persons who like each other at face value (and some years of background history). This communication may be instructive for those who want to better understand aggression and its rationalizations in order to ju-jitsu the worst of what happens when beliefs are allowed to bear the ugly fruits of perpetual war.

HOW A MINUTEKLAN CO-FOUNDER GOT MORE THAN HE BARGAINED FOR IN LONG ISLAND, NY (tags)
Well, it looks like our friends in the Minuteklan Project wanted to come out and see if they can bring their crap to the East Coast, so they held another meeting, this time in Babylon, Long Island in New York. About 100 people came out to see him, but they were all of us, and that made for an interesting afternoon on the Island. Chris Simcox, the co-founder of the Minuteklan Project, was the featured speaker at this meeting, and that was what prompted so many people to come out. We have at this link a slew of pics from the day, and as always, if you recognize anyone in the pics, hit us up and give us the story.

Primordial Illogic (tags)
It is logical to lock people up in their homes and villages, and to sabotage the farming of their land because it is logical to subsidize the Jewish settlement in the land of the forefathers of Gush Katif and northern Gaza. It is logical to connect Jewish settler homes to electricity and water while forbidding Palestinian neighbors from connecting to the electricity grid and the water and sewage lines.
