WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8, 2001
2nd NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR
FREE SPEECH AND COMMUNITY RADIO

PICKET AND PROTEST
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOME BUILDERS (NAHB)

KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!
Atlanta, Houston, Islip, Los Angeles, New City,
New York City, Minneapolis, Piscataway, Rutland, Spokane, San
Francisco, Washington DC, Whippany and more

o Save free speech and community radio
o Expose the NAHB's crimes against the environment &
people with disabilities
o No FBI at Pacifica Radio

Ken Ford, vice-chair of the Pacifica Radio National Board, is
destroying the only listener-supported, corporate-free national
broadcast network in the country. He has overstayed his legal term on
the Pacifica Radio board and is named in four separate legal actions,
including one backed by the California Attorney General. During his
tenure, he has overseen union-busting, lockouts, censorship, group
bannings, and race-baiting. When listeners complain, he threatens to
turn them into the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Ken Ford is a staffer at the National Association of Home Builders
(NAHB) in Washington, D.C. The NAHB has actively defended Ken Ford's
destruction of Pacifica Radio, even going so far as to threaten legal
action against free speech activists exercising their First Amendment
rights to protest his presence on the Pacifica National Board.

The NAHB is one of the largest lobbying organizations in the country.
They seek to defeat environmental regulations like the Endangered
Species and Clean Water Acts and they crush popular initiatives against
unrestrained sprawl, as in Arizona and Colorado. They also oppose
enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

What we are asking for is simple. The resignation of the NAHB's Ken
Ford from the Pacifica National Board.

This week, please protest the NAHB. Attend a picket or make a phone
call or send a fax. Our collective action is having results. You can
contact any of the below NAHB offices via phone, fax or e-mail.
