Subject: [EMMAS] Juan Gonzalez' Call to Action Audio on-line
PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY TO ANY CONCERNED ABOUT
SAVING Pacifica Radio for the people!
Juan Gonzalez' announcement of his resignation from Democracy
Now! and the initiation of a massive corporate campaign to remove
the Pacifica Board and take back Pacifica Radio is now on line, if
you missed the announcement this morning
For those without audio capabilities, a summary:
Juan cited the gag rule, the persecution of Amy Goodman and the
policies and actions of Pacifica's corporatized Board of Directors
clique to steal and destroy Pacifica Radio as the reason that he felt
compelled to resign as co-host of Democracy Now! and devote his
energies to a massive corporate campaign which will include a
nationwide boycott of donations to Pacifica UNTIL THE BOARD
RESIGNS OR IS REMOVED, and a diversion of those funds to the
legal and activist efforts throughout the nation to fight the takeover.
Hooray, Juan! It's about time! They must not use our funds against
us to destroy our radio.
You don't have to wait to contribute to the lawsuits against the
criminal Pacifica Board.
