Last week, actor and activist Danny Glover spoke at a Los Angeles fundraiser for Democracy Now in Exile. The staffhas been suspended without pay since August 14, but has continued to broadcast "The War and Peace Report" an expandedtwo hour daily radio program —on community radio stations and public access cable stations around the country. Over1,000 people attended the event to hear Glover, as well as many of the Fired and the Banned of Pacifica stations KPFKand WBAI.

Over three weeks ago, the Pacifica National Board of Directors unanimously voted to resign and reconstitute itselfwith a majority from the Pacifica reform movement. To date, the resolution, which included the unconditional returnof Democracy Now! to the air at the four Pacifica stations that currently ban the program, has yet to be implemented.

According to sources on the Pacifica Board, the network’s current debt nears $4 million dollars, most of which canbe attributed to corporate lawyers and PR firms hired by the Pacifica management. Glover talks about independentmedia, Pacifica Radio, World Aids Day and the organization TransAfrica.
