Commentary :: Alternative Media : Media Criticism


Many people in the KPFA listener community in the San Francisco Bay Area have asked me, Joseph Anderson, for a copy of my UC Berkeley "Daily Californian" newspaper guest column on Pacifica Radio's KPFA character Larry Bensky.

LOCAL Announcement :: Alternative Media : Arts & Culture : Gender & Sexuality

Emma, a Play by Howard Zinn, at the Monterey Bay World Theater

Emma Goldman... an activist for Free Speech, Anarchism, Women’s Rights, Draft Resistance, Worker’s Rights, and Free Love.

Come share the experiences of early 1900's Anarchists struggling for a people's revolution, risking everything against the suppression of the state and the ruling class in a society where dissent was deemed criminal (seems like times haven't changed that much).

Participate in the re-telling of stories written out of high school history books and fight for people's histories to be heard.

The play will be presented on November 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17 at the Monterey Bay World Theater in Seaside.

PUBLIC FORUM: KPFA/Pacifica - Democracy Deferred?

The historic victory achieved by KPFA listeners hangs in the balance. Once again, listeners must come to the rescue. A panel of the "banned and fired," current programmers, board members and community members, followed by an open-mike session, will address questions and propose solutions to protect the nation's only independent radio network.
