Santa Cruz City Council Rushes to Support Freak Radio in Wake of FCC Visit

In a special session yesterday the Santa Cruz (CA) City Council approved an emergency resolution of support for Freak Radio Santa Cruz, which just got visited (again) by the FCC a week ago today.
Cribbed from the endorsement passed last month by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in support of San Francisco Liberation Radio, The Freak Radio resolution also calls for non-intervention on the part of local and state law enforcement and encourages more grassroots media development in the community.
This is not the first time the city of Santa Cruz has gone on record in support of the microradio station: in 1999 the council passed a resolution supporting both Freak Radio and the FCC’s then-pending rulemaking on LPFM.
