Subject: Shameful Day for KPFA! Censorship Free Speech Radio style!

The censorship of Bonnie Faulkner’s independent and internationally respected “Guns and Butter Radio Show” is absolutely inconsistent with the concept of free speech radio and the great Pacifica radio tradition of fighting censorship. All the more shameful when it is in the middle of a California citizens struggle against Big Pharma’s press to get legislation to make expanded regimens of vaccines mandatory! Which side are you on?

A public apology and explanation to the KPFA community is in order. The show and the premium she has selected should be presented at the next earliest opportunity, ie Let it go on next Wednesday’s show!

In solidarity with Bonnie Faulkner and her internationally esteemed radio show, we have just added the KPFA censored movie to our documentary playlist “Health Care Truth and Justice for All” in the “SOCIAL JUSTICE IN THE HEART OF BERKELEY” YouTube  Channel. Get on side of the people’s right to control their own bodies!

Stop Gatekeeping! Restore Free Speech Radio!

Silent Epidemic: The Untold Story of Vaccines – Full Movie – Directed by Gary Null (1:48:05) Published on Nov 11, 2013 at Gary Null YouTube Channel. Now video #13 in the “Health Care Truth and Justice for All” playlist in the “Social Justice in the Heart of Berkeley” YouTube  Channel. “Silent Epidemic, by award winning film director Gary Null, is the first documentary to investigate thoroughly the true medical record and the historical evidence about vaccine marvels. Conventional medicine has herald the invention of vaccines as a miracle of modern science. It claims that vaccines have been proven to prevent and eradicate infectious diseases. We are told that vaccines are safe and effective, and that “herd immunity” can be achieved if a high percentage of a population is vaccinated. However, does the science support these claims? Kru

“Simple Song of Freedom” – Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot update of the Bobby Darin 1969 classic anthem to struggle released under license on “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” available on CD Baby. The song was actually a hit for Tim Hardin in 1966, and Tim Hardin’s “If I Were A Carpenter” was a hit for Bobby Darin. Great American songwriters!
