Letters to the Editor

To the editor, While the origins of COVID-19 are debated, it remains true that animal agriculture greatly increases our pandemic risk. That's why Senators Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla should support federal funding for cultured-meat research. For readers who aren't familiar with the term, cultured meat is grown from cells, without raising and slaughtering livestock. "Both farmed and caged wild animals create the perfect breeding ground for zoonotic diseases," Liz Specht wrote [...]

Cultured Meat – Letter to the Editor

To the editor,   Democrats should include federal funding for cultured-meat research in their coronavirus-relief bill. For readers who aren't aware, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughter. Since animals are removed from the process, the risk of zoonotic diseases like COVID-19 making the jump to humans is eliminated. Our current food system — which relies on huge numbers of creatures packed together in dirty cages — is like kindling to [...]

Letter to the Editor: Immigration and the Environment

Election Season 2020 A Letter-To-The-Editor NOT printed by the L.A. Times      Behind the scenes, in ways I cannot fathom, the LA Times is linked to a globalist, pro-capitalist agenda. Despite that, they occasionally do allow for alternative points-of-view — sometimes in guest editorials and especially with letters-to-the-editor. However, at critical moments, such as the lead-up to the 2020 election, it appears they have little or no room for alternative points-of-view. This [...]

Letter to the Editor: Promote Cultured Meat to End Animal Slaughter

To the editor, President-elect Joe Biden, who won the endorsement of the Humane Society Legislative Fund, should support federal funding for cultured-meat research. For readers who aren't aware, cultured-meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals. There is no greater crime than what we do to nonhumans in food production. We kill over a trillion aquatic and land creatures every year for this purpose. According to the Population Reference Bureau, only about [...]

Letter to the Editor: Don’t Ostracize and Stigmatize All Cops

Letter to the Editor: Don't Ostracize and Stigmatize All Cops As "Bastards" 02-23-2020 I am writing in response to Imani Beckett’s article, “Why all Cops Are In Fact Bastards,” in the February, 2020 edition of Change Links. Throughout human history virtually all major systems of power inherently draw to them those who seek to impose their strength over others.  The fact that these systems often oppress others is particularly disdainful, because it [...]

Letter to the Editor: Bernie, Stop Attacking Venezuela

Dear friends and Bernie Sanders Supporters, What follows is my response to the Bernie campaign asking for financial support...which I have been giving...but will discontinue until he changes his rhetoric ( and hopefully his position) attacking Venezuela.  We cannot afford another war mongering president ready to support destructive US policies and invasions.  Repeating corporate media lies supporting the destabilization of another sovereign country is a very very disturbing thing for any candidate.  [...]

Letters to the Editor: No Nukes!

Dear lovers of peace and a nuclear free world, For those skeptical about being able to finance a "Green New Deal," there is a bill recently introduced into the House of Representatives that could provide that funding, if Congress would take it seriously. HR-2419, the "Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act, calls on the US government to sign and ratify the 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, [...]

Letters to Change Links: On AMLO

Letters to Change Links: From Freedom Socialist Party: The election of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) on July 1 delivered a crushing defeat to Mexico’s Partido Institutional Revolucionario (PRI). MORENA won not only the presidency, but dominance in both legislative houses and all but two of the state governorships. AMLO lifted aspirations by campaigning against poverty, corruption and state violence. But what will he deliver? In his third run for the presidency, [...]

LETTERS TO CHANGE LINKS

To Change Links: In the May issue, you carried an article promoting AB931 as a legislative effort to cut police killings. We urge caution about this bill, which has already been amended twice since submission. One key element is to look at the concept of "totality of circumstances."  It is very much a part of the bill. You can see the bill as amended here: httpss://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180AB931 The key language in the official [...]
