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 is an abuse of that power against those less powerful who are in turn exploited. [...]

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.  Maybe it just goes with the Democrat label...the other war party of two war parties [...]

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, eliminate its nuclear weapons along with those of every other country, and use the money [...]

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, AMLO created the left-of-center Movimiento de Regeneración Nacional (Morena), and a three-party electoral coalition that [...]

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 digest is: "This bill would make a homicide committed by a peace officer justifiable only [...]

Letters to Change Links

Dear editor: On March 12, 2015, Isaac B. Pearson was arrested and charged with promoting prostitution (F3) due to allegations of a prostitute. Detective Jason Krasley during a prostitution investigation detained a 20-year-old lady who supposedly stated that Pearson received $905.00 from her acts the night prior to the day's events. Three years later, after an appeal from an evidentiary hearing, Honorable Mary Hannah Leavitt reversed the ruling to confiscate the currency from Pearson because the confiscation was neither initiated under nor authorized by statute. No. 203 [...]

Letter to the Editor: Enough! with “Ultra-Leftism”

Dear Editor: I’ve been tempted to write more than once before, but your “Editorial Commentary” graphic in the January issue moves me finally to say Enough! with what I would call ultra-leftism in the current epoch. If at this late date, a year into President Trump, the editors of Change-Links do not see that there is indeed some “difference between Democrats and Republicans,” then you and I are truly inhabiting different planets. The Democrats are not perfect. They are collectively far from perfect. But we would be [...]

Dear Change Links: Resources for Dealing with Cancer

Dear Change-Links: I came across your site (I was especially drawn to this page: https://change-links.org/?p=6883) and appreciate all of the heartfelt information you’ve shared for those who have been affected by cancer. I wanted to support your mission by offering you some additional articles surrounding cancer, which I think would be a great addition to the page I mentioned above. They are below: Preparing for the Death of a Terminally-Ill Loved One: What to Expect, and How to Help the Entire Family Move Forward httpss://www.neptunesociety.com/resources/preparing-for-the-death-of-a-terminally-ill-loved-one Living with [...]

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, "Walking While Black: L.O.V.E. Is The Answer" is a powerful documentary film I’m directing and producing that's offering a solution to one of the most pressing and provocative issues of our time — racial profiling. We're creating a film that will promote reconciliation and healing between police and the rest of the community. I’d like to ask for your participation as a media partner. Details of the film and the "L.O.VE. Is The Answer" movement are below and attached. Academy Award Winner, Sundance Winner, 4x [...]

Dear Editor

I take issue with the March article "The Greek People Rise Up" by Aris Anagnos. The current Greek government came to power with unrealistic promises and now scrambles to live up to them. The writer falsely makes it sound as if the Greek populace isn't to blame for the current state of affairs. Greece has a history of not living up to its promises, that's why the EU is taking a hard line. Greek people have been abusing the country's system, because of corrupt officials and favoritism. [...]
