Please Support Striking Pacifica ReportersIn January 2000, dozens of stringers for the Pacifica Network News went on strike to protest rampant censorship throughout the network. The striking reporters were filing from across the Americas, Europe and Asia, and many have won the industry's top awards.
Thousands of progressives and union members have endorsed the strike, many of whom refuse to give comment to PNN until the strike is resolved. Supporters include: Alameda County Central Labor Council (AFL-CIO), Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), Independent Media Center, Project Censored, Noam Chomsly, Angela Y. Davis, Mike Davis, Barbara Ehrenreich, Peter Franck, Robert McChesney, Michael Moore, Tilli Olsen, Michael Parenti and Alice Walker.
Pacifica StikecastInnitially Free Speech Radio News was produced weekly by Aaron Glanz out of KPFA Berkley, and included reportage from the great reporters who used to report for PNN. The strikecast is now carried daily at 50 stations around the U.S.. At least 14 affiliates cancelled PNN opting instead to carry FSRN. Meanwhile, PNN maintains a blacklist against everyone who joined the strike.
