Support Uprising Radio!

by JOSHUA FRANK

Hey CounterPunchers,

KPFK Pacifica Radio’s popular show, Uprising, hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar, has been invited to be on Free Speech TV. Uprising often features CounterPunch contributors and stories you won’t find anywhere else.

I encourage you to support KPFK’s effort to purchase the video editing and recording equipment they need to make this happen. If Uprising is broadcast on Free Speech TV, a whole new audience will be reached.

Please join the Indiegogo crowd funding campaign which is live now and goes through April 30th:

www.indiegogo.com/projects/uprisingtv

On that page you can see a great video of how they can transform their radio studio into a virtual TV set with borrowed equipment that they hope to eventually purchase. There is a also a great video of Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman endorsing the campaign. There are some great perks like posters, CDs, organic coffee, etc. for your donations.

Thank you!

Joshua Frank
