NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR FREE SPEECH AND COMMUNITY RADIO
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOME BUILDERS (NAHB) HANDS OFF PACIFICA!!
- Save free speech and community radio
- Expose the NAHB¹s crimes against the environment & people with disabilities
- No FBI at Pacifica Radio
On Tuesday, join pickets and protests in San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York
City, Washington DC, Houston, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Nashville, New Jersey, Rockland
County (NY), Long Island (NY). (See below for details.)
Ken Ford, vice-chair of the Pacifica Radio national board, is destroying the oldest and
only listener-supported, corporate-free national broadcast network in the country.
He has overstayed his legal term on the Pacifica Radio board and is named in 4 separate
legal actions, including one backed by the Calif. Atty Gen. During his tenure, he has
overseen union-busting, lockouts, censorship, group bannings, and race-baiting.
When listeners complain, he threatens to turn them into the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The NAHB is one of the largest political action/lobbying organizations in the country. They:
- Defeat environmental regulations like the Endangered Species and Clean Water Acts.
- Crush popular initiatives against unrestrained sprawl, as in Arizona and Colorado.
- Oppose enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
- Block free speech on the Internet
What we are asking for is simple. The resignation of the NAHB's Ken Ford from the
Pacifica National Board.
This week, please protest the NAHB. Attend a picket or make a phone call. Our
collective action is having results. You can contact any of the below NAHB offices
via phone, fax or e-mail. Deliver the very simple message: the NAHB's Ken Ford must
resign from the Pacifica Radio board. Please be polite.
