By John Riley, Coproducer, Out-FM.
In this 28 minute video Riley reports on the movement to resist the takeover of the network by an elite clique, with footage from meetings and protest.
After being physically taken over by Pacifica National in October 2019, WBAI Fightback and it’s allies successfully defeated the effort. Only later did we learn that the rogue faction from with in had launched a second wave attack to try to change the bylaws of Pacifica to eliminate democratic process and disenfranchise completely the staff and make the the listeners an afterthought in Pacifica governance. All of this to enable them to be able to sell WBAI’s valuable license and centrally control without input, the network.
