Kapoor booted from Fresno
Human Relations Commission
in opening right wing shot

Because many of us cannot
view video yet, SunMt will
run 2+ pages of every
Chronicle — first one with
stills; the rest with video.
Fresno GOP right wing crosshairs liberal city
human relations commission. First casualty is
Su Kapoor, long time commission member and
gentle outspoken advocate for nonviolence and
and peace. He was booted from the commission
by councilman Jerry Duncan after the commission
unanimously urged the city council to oppose
the Iraqi slaughter.

Over 150 of us gathered at Fresno c
ity hall
to support Kapoor and the integrity of the
commission. Hear Kapoor speak to us by
clicking here. Hear Les Kimber, who was on
the city council when the commission was
formed in 1986, speak by clicking here. These
clips are longer than the usual SunMt
Chronicles. Please be patient. These men are
speaking to the elemental issues of our time.

The full intention of the Duncan ouster of
Kapoor came later. Duncan said he would
reappoint Kapoor if the commmsion would stick
to local issues. Fresno GOP mayor Alan Autry
echoed Duncan while city councilman Brad
Castillo who said he would appoint Kapoor
snipped at the commission’s leaders Gail
Gaston and Debbie Reyes.
