From Ferguson To The Bay Area: Connecting the Dots
KPFA 94.1 FM
Pacifica Live Programming On The Streaming Channel
10:00 am – 2:00 pm
On October 11, 2014 thousands of working people and youth will be converging in Ferguson to protest the continuing racism, discrimination and failure to arrest the policeman who murdered Michael Brown. KPFA WorkWeek will provide live streaming program from the station’s channel with activists and teachers from Ferguson and also will connect the dots to Northern California. We will hear from working people and trade unionists about militarization of police departments in the bay area, the censorship of education by the Oakland school district of the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, and the same economic and social conditions in Northern California that exist in Feruguson. We will also have video from Ferguson from the rallies and struggles. SEIU 1021 Social and Economic Justice Committee and other organizations are supporting this program.
