Arrest Of KPFA Programmer Nadra Foster by KPFA/Pacifica Management

On 8/20/2008, KPFA-Pacifica management supported by "Concerned Listeners" called the police to remove community programmer Nadra Foster from the station. They told the police she was trespassing on private property and she was beaten and arrested. They were also supported in this action by the Pacifica Exeuctive Director Nicole Sawaya. In fact, Sawaya also sought to physically block a KPFA Hard Knock Radio staff member Weyland Southon from video taping this police action and you can see her in the video seeking to knock the camera so the incident could not be videotaped.

Sawaya was supported by pro-management staffer Kris Welch who was standing by the door and Interim Program Director Sasha Lilley who walked by while the police were carrying out their attack and later supported a statement by station management and management supporters defending their actions.
