Building a fortress this big requires many Lego bricks. Most of our supporters have gave awayI from their private selection, but the aim would not be achieved without the lavish assistance of hundreds of allies.

Take Back Pacifica Coalition
Did you know that ideological and racial purges are taking place across the Pacifica network?
Did you know that since the Steve Brown/Grace Aaron faction took control of the network in April 2009, Armando Gudino, Program Director at the Los Angeles station KPFK, Jerry Quickley the host of “Beneath The Surface,” Fernando Velasquez the host of “Informativo,” Lonnie Hicks, the Chief Financial Officer of the Pacifica National Foundation, WBAI Program Director Bernard White, Ron Pinchback, WPFW Station Manager were all fired and WBAI Station Manager Anthony Riddle was removed from his position? Of the seven people who were terminated or removed all were either African American or Latino.
Did you know that the local WBAI board violated its own rules and processes in rushing to engineer the removal of WBAI General Manager Anthony Riddle and the termination of Program Director Bernard White? Neither White nor Riddle had received the annual evaluation required in the station’s bylaws. The board committee that was preparing the annual evaluation for Program Director Bernard White was illegally and single handedly abolished by LSB board member Steve Brown? Brown is the board member who has waged a five years-long public campaign of defamation against Bernard White.
Did you know that multimillionaire, WBAI LSB board member, Steve Brown has been actively sabotaging WBAI’s past fund drives by sending out thousands of racially charged emails with fabricated scenarios just before our drives? These emails were designed to undermine listener confidence and negatively impact our revenue generation. (See Document)
Did you know that Mr. Brown went as far asking listeners to send their contributions to his upper Westside Penthouse? (http://whoisstevebrown.info)
Did you know that Cynthia McKinney applied for the position of Executive Director of the Pacifica Foundation and that the Steve Brown/Grace Aaron led faction of Pacifica denied her application by telling her that she was not qualified? This action was taken without notifying the Pacifica Personnel Committee that McKinney had applied.
Did you know that for the first time since the Christmas Coup a gag rule has been imposed that threatens the hosts with removal if they openly discuss their opposition to recent changes at the station or the newly imposed redirection of Pacifica?
The purge that is going on in Pacifica will not only replace Blacks and Latinos from decision making positions it will also transform the political nature of Pacifica in contravention to its original mission. The Steve Brown/Grace Aaron led faction now in charge of Pacifica will eliminate the community character of its five radio stations. Their goal is to increase revenue by appealing to a richer, whiter audience. Don’t be confused by the color of those who they are temporarily using to achieve their goals.
On July 15, 2010 Lynne Stewart's sentence was increased by Judge John Koeltl from 28months to 10YEARS!
This sentence is an outrage to justice. The struggle to free Lynne Stewart and ALL political prisoners continues.

Please watch this video of anti-racist speaker Tim Wise, in which he tackles the role of institutional racism in the takeover of Pacifica Network. Watch to realize how institutional racism affects us all and the things close to us.
We were thinking about selling this as a DVD but we feel it's so important for people to see it, that we decided to put it up for free.
Please watch and donate
