Listener Candidate
for the KPFA Local Station Board
Statement
My name is Akio Tanaka.

I have been a believer of the network since 1970, and served as the PNB Secretary in 2017.

I do not have much original to say, but the following sentiments have been my guide.

“Every government is run by liars. Nothing they say should be believed.”
-- I.F. Stone

“Go tell, go tell all the little children
Tell all the mothers and fathers too
Now's our last chance to learn to share
What's been given to me and you

One blue sky above us,
One ocean, lapping all our shores.
One earth so green and round,
Who could ask for more?

And because I love you
I'll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It's too soon to die.”
-- ‘Rainbow Race’ Pete Seeger
