Rally to remove tea party enabler and climate change denier David Koch as a WGBH trustee

Rally to remove tea party enabler and climate change denier David Koch as a WGBH trustee
Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 3:00pm
One Guest Street, Brighton, Massachusetts

For years my two open groups, "New England's National "Public" Radio (NPR) Affiliates" and "Supporters of Folk and Blues on WGBH" have been serving as forums to spread the fact, first broken by the Boston Phoenix, that billionaire tea party enabler and climate denier David Koch as a WGBH trustee.

For additional background, read the recent article "Fuse Commentary: David Koch, WGBH Trustee — The Real God of Carnage?" by Bill William Marx

Now groups like, Courage Campaign and Forecast for the Facts are organizing on-line campaigns and virtual demonstrrations. YOU have the opportunity to join in Wedesday, October 9 at the WGBH megaplex in Brighton:
3:00pm - 4:00pm ET: Hand out flyers, hold signs.
4:00 pm: Petition delivery to WGBH and the beginning of their board meeting.

To RSVP for the Koch-Free WGBH Rally, please fill out the form at

Please share the petition and invite friends to this event.
