Pacifica Campaign

On January 31, 2001, Juan Gonzalez announced in an on-air broadcast of Democracy Now!, a campaign for a funding boycott of Pacifica Radio's network. The object was to oust then-current board. Gonzalez expressed dislike of the current corporate "takeover" of the network and called for his listeners to refuse to donate any money to Pacifica until its board of directors resigned. He subsequently announced his resignation in that call for campaign.[2] They were especially opposed to John Murdock, an attorney whose law firm was "notoriously anti-union."[3][4]
