A campaign to televise Uprising, the popular radio program hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar, on KPFK Pacifica Radio.
Uprising is a daily radio program produced at KPFK Pacifica in Los Angeles. Our content is unique, compelling, and from a people’s perspective, not corporations’ or politicians’.
Free Speech TV, a national, commercial-free television network with distribution to 40 million households nationwide, has invited Uprising to be part of its regular television line up.
I listen to Uprising Monday through Friday and love Sinali’s passion for what she does, getting the truth out. I support all she and Pacifica does for the people.

Bill de Blasio began his term as New York City mayor on Wednesday with a bold pledge to tackle income inequality in the nation’s largest city. De Blasio was sworn in following last year’s historic victories in the Democratic primary and general election on a progressive platform. In his inaugural address, de Blasio focused on his campaign pledge to tackle what he called “a tale of two cities,” a growing gap between rich and poor. “New Yorkers [will] see our city not as the exclusive domain of the One Percent, but a place where everyday people can afford to live, work, and raise a family,” de Blasio said. “We won’t wait. We’ll do it now.”
This is Harry Belafonte’s address to him….
And, see de Blasio’s address to New York @ source:
Thousands of Wal-Mart workers joined a nationwide day of action in 15 cities Thursday, calling for Wal-Mart to provide a living wage, improve working conditions and end retaliation against employees who stand up for their rights. At least 24 people were arrested at actions in New York City and Los Angeles.
8.00 USD per hour (January 1, 2013) is the current minimum wage, which is a yearly Annual income of $16,640
How can one person, let along a family live off of that amount in a day in age where gas is extremely high, food is high of cost and let’s not get on being able to actually eat healthy…. All the unhealthy bad food is cheap, while healthy organic food hits too deep in a minimum wage earning persons pocket.
These corporations (And I say corporations due to politicians mostly consist of prior CEO’s of corps these days) don’t want to pay actual living wages – but want people to but their goods or services. I’m not economic specialist, but it does not take many brain cells to know the following –
The natural fluctuation of the economy between periods of expansion (growth) and contraction (recession). Factors such as gross domestic product (GDP), interest rates, levels of employment and consumer spending can help to determine the current stage of the economic cycle.
Does our government, states not know that if people actually make good money, they spend money. And what does that do? – It puts money back into the economy – it’s a cycle of make money, spend money. Its that easy!
When will our government think logically and assert humanity in their logic?
