    • Supporters Join KPFA's Union Workers and Unpaid Staff in a Rally Against Cuts

      KPFA staff and listeners turned out in force on Thursday for a lively noontime informational picket. The rally came as KPFA’s parent network Pacifica appears to be moving ahead with layoffs of more than a quarter of the station’s union staff. The Morning Show, Against the Grain, Hard Knock Radio and the Evening News seem slated for severe program changes and/or decimating cuts, along with other vital positions at KPFA. Pacifica’s executive director, Arlene Engelhardt, appeared on the Morning Show last Tuesday to defend planned deep cuts to replace KPFA’s paid staff with volunteers, a plan that would dramatically affect KPFA’s programming. Engelhardt claims a budget shortfall requires the layoffs, but she has rejected most of the alternative cost-savings measures that have won the backing of the staff, local KPFA board and management. Those proposals, the Sustainable Budget would preserve good jobs while cutting unnecessary board expenses and reducing bureaucratic overhead. KPFA’s union, CWA Local 9415, is asking listeners and the larger progressive and labor community to take a stand against union busting at America’s first listener-sponsored radio station. Please follow the link below to tell Pacifica’s board and Executive Director Arlene Engelhardt that they need to adopt the proposals from KPFA’s union to reduce layoffs, and explore more alternatives in good faith: http://kpfaworker.wordpress.com/contact-form/

                  This is my QR Code Amy Goodman portrait made with 2,304 unique QR Codes that link to 9 years of "Democracy Now!" videos. Amy Goodman is the host of "Democracy Now!", which is an independent news program produced by Pacifica Radio. You can scan the QR Codes with a smartphone and it will play a full hour long episode of "Democracy Now!" in the palm of your hand. I admire Amy Goodman and hope that this portrait will make more people aware of "Democracy Now!", and become avid watchers much like myself. I added the radial stripe pattern to create an extra dimension in the portrait that mimics radio waves. You can watch the daily news show online at http://www.DemocracyNow.org For more information about my art, including free downloads of this image, visit my website http://www.BarcodeArt.com
