5 NEW PACIFICA DIRECTORS BEING ADDED AS DEFENDANTS IN LISTENERS' LAWSUIT
We are now in the last 3 months before trial begins on January 7th. During the next 2 months somewhere between 20 and 40 depositions must be taken or "defended" in order for us to gather evidence in "admissible" form to take our case to trial and to bring and defend motions for partial summary judgment. Each deposition will require 7-10 hours of attorneys' preparation time as well as 4-8 hours of actual deposition time, plus travel costs and costs of court reporter to make a certified transcript.
This is the most cost-intensive period of our lawsuit. Our current fundraising goal is $300,000. If you can help in any way -- hold a house party, join a phone bank, do a fundraising concert or poetry reading (Majesty's Monkeys raised over $1000 for us!), send us your tax refund, speak to wealthy acquaintances & friends, or any other great brainstorms you may have ... please contact me, Carol Spooner, at (707) 526-2867 email email@example.com and I'll put you in touch with our fundraising coordinators. Thanks!
We have known throughout this almost 2-1/2 year legal battle (since the KPFA lockout) that the loss of Pacifica and its 5 stations would be a terrible blow to free speech and the independent press, and to our "progressive" community -- now we know, more than ever, how crucial it is to save this network as a source of information not available in the mainstream media and as means of communication for the peace movement we must build now, and over the coming period. Please give as much as you can to our legal fund, now. Addresses below.
Pacifica Means Peace.
Important -- We can't do this without you! Please make contributions to our legal fund payable to:

TAX DEDUCTIBLE gifts to support our legal action can be made payable to our fiscal sponsor:

You will receive tax deduction receipt from them. Also, the MHF/Public Media Initiative has a special account to receive gifts of stock in support of our lawsuit. For details contact Linda Remy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Web Page: www.marinhealthfund.org
