Police are more dangerous to the public than criminals

September 27, 2013

Vote to right what wrongs you: YES on Prop 19

November 1, 2010

If you want to do your part to help our young people, you will vote. You must vote yes on Proposition 19, the marijuana constitutional amendment. The war on drugs is a war on the little dope dealer. Those who profit the most are immune from arrest and prosecution.

Subscribe and vote to reclaim KPFA

June 29, 2009

If enough listeners become subscribers, and vote in the election, it’s possible that “people power” will overcome “money power” and elect an LSB majority that isn’t wedded to the status quo.

And KPFA workers, paid and unpaid, deserve management that respects them and the listener community.
