Editor's Note: This is an example of the culture of violence and injustice within the deformed justice system that pervades our society. This is truly making a mountain out of a molehill, truly the evil of mendacity sucking at our bone marrows. For KPFA to be a party to this is a huge black mark on them. All this over a phone call?
(UPDATE: Nadra Foster begins her trial on Feb.5 in Oakland and she needs our support. For more information read the new SF Bay View article here.)

Nadra Foster, a/k/a, your brown sistah, Mama Nadra and emcee Saquoyah
Sankofa, has been a committed programmer and producer, or love warrior,
for over 15 years at Pacifica's KPFA. In 1994, at 19 years old, she
became the youngest person to be accepted to the two-year
apprenticeship. Active in community and global advancement -- as a
poet, political-prisoner activist and journalist, holistic Hip Hop
emcee, visual artist and educator -- Nadra has worked to keep
disenfranchised communities inspired and involved in using media to
heal and uplift themselves.
On August 20, 2008, in the studios of KPFA, a terrifying incident took place when over a dozen Berkeley police attacked Nadra with such extreme aggression she is still recovering from serious injuries. She is also fighting misdemeaner charges. To support Nadra and learn more about her case, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
