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?

Nadra has been a committed programmer and producer, or love warrior, for over 15 years at Pacifica's KPFA. 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. Nadra Foster begins her trial on Feb.5 in Oakland and she needs our support.
