Victory for Democracy

Both listeners and staff voted nearly 2-1 against the undemocratic Bylaws replacement forced to a vote by a court order sought by the proponents, many of whom also backed the illegal shutdown and takeover of WBAI previously.

6340 listener-member voters, 66%, said “NO”. Yes voters: 3273; Abstentions: 101. The totala number of voters represented 22% of listener members on the record date.
In the staff vote, 331 voters, 65%, said “NO”. Yes voters among staff: 177; Abstentions: 4. The total number of voters represented 51% of staff on the record date. The overwhelming rejection of the Bylaws replacement by unprecedented percentages of both listeners and staff far above the required quorum levels — more than double the quorum in both cases — reflect the fact that the proponents’ desire to eliminate democracy at Pacifica is very much out of step and out of sync with our workers and our listeners.
