San Francisco, Epstein, Becker and Green is at 2 Embarcadero Center
(map) on the Front St. side of the building,
which is very near Embarcadero BART. We are focusing on the 11:30-1:00
lunch time slot,
Wednesdays, and Fridays, except holidays. Even 2 people
at any one time is very helpful, and more are obviously better. It's
not embarrassing or confrontational, it's informative and many people
do take notice, accept flyers and this will eventually get back to
the executives running these corporations. The negative publicity
for the employers of John Murdock should put pressure on this
Board member. This was a very effective tactic during the civil rights
struggles when people picketed chains who were discriminating against
people of color by protesting 'at a franchise of the chain nearest you'.
you can join us to picket on Wednesday or Friday, from 11:30-1pm at
2 Embarcadero Center (on the Front St. side) in San Francisco, please
email Anne Fitzmaurice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tell her that you will be there and she will coordinate so that you
are with others and have flyers to pass out.
The experience is interesting, more
people are beginning to understand about the role of Epstein, Becker
and Green, and 2 Embarcadero Ctr. is very close to the Embarcadero
John Sheridan - (510)652-0272

sheets, to cut in half):

EBG HQ in San Francisco about John Murdock's and EBG's role in
the destruction of KPFA, WBAI and Pacifica. [Photos

words of Bill, one of the Truth Squad members: "I've never seen
people more worried about publicity than the Epstein, et al people
I talked to."

Leafletting began this week in the SF financial district, and there
were six of us at lunchtime today handing out lots of flyers. We had
two bright orange signs: "Michael Palmer of C.B. Richard Ellis,
HANDS OFF KPFA!".
We were surprised by the amount of positive reaction we got there in
the belly of the corporate beast. Judging by what happened today, I
think that if this presence can be kept up as a regular event it can
have a real effect!
People generally seemed curious about us. At one point a black-clad
security looking person was cell-phoning up to HQ and was overheard
to say, "Who is Michael Palmer? There are six people out here with
signs and flyers..." Then several employees of CB Richard Ellis
stopped to talk and ask, "Who is this Michael Palmer? I don't know
any Michael Palmer" -- and they were informed of the situation
with Pacifica. Many other people also stopped to talk.
We need this kind of thing, we need the Pacifica Natonal Board members
to be questioned at their places of work about what they are up to.
We need to work on getting more people involved in this action, so we
can keep it going, because while doing it one time was great, it needs
to be something that happens regularly. The plan is to have leafletting
happen M-W-F (except holiday weeks). Coordinating with others is good,
because it really helps to have a couple of people bring signs to get
the message across at a glance -- many people take leaflets when they
see the signs. Also, saying something about "help KPFA Radio"
in a loud voice seemed to catch a lot of people's attention.
This action is focusing
on two PNB members who are employed by firms with offices in San Francisco:
- John Murdock, Epstein Becker & Green: SF office is at Two Embarcadero
Center. - Michael Palmer, CB Richard Ellis: SF office is at Embarcadero
Center West, 275 Battery St. [also see http://www.mediademocracynow.org
