Right to an Affirmative Future for Palestine: The wrongful conflation of anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism
In light of the grotesque attempt by the breakers to turn Pacifica’s assets and operations over to a private “receiver”, claiming that Pacifica was broadcasting “antisemitism” as one of their justifications, we are devoting the first portion of the Town Hall to a presentation by Palestinian activists about their struggle and the attempt to use charges of antisemitism to suppress or even criminalize any support for Palestine or criticism of Israel.
A Sustainable Pacifica
In the second half, we will look further at the other attacks on democratic governance and communty radio, the lies the breakers are telling about the causes and nature of Pacifica’s financial problems, and discuss how to get Pacifica stations on firmer financial ground through fundraising and alliance-building.
