Volunteers Needed for Change-Links Production

Change Links Needs Editorial, Layout & Website Volunteers If Change Links is to continue much longer into its third year since the death of long-time editor John Johnson, it needs a rapid infusion of volunteers who can take responsibility for editorial work, soliciting and correcting articles and graphics; layout, designing the text and calendar sections of the print publication, and website design and maintenance. A large crew of people initially showed up to the meeting called to revive Change Links after John's death, but it shrank quickly [...]

FLINT: Crimes of Capital

© 2016 by Mumia Abu-Jamal [1/21/16] From the beginning of human communal time, people built cities adjacent to rivers, for water, fresh water, was the source of life. Cairo (and before it grew into Cairo, Fustat), relied on the Nile; London (and before that, the Roman colonial city of Londinium) was built upon the banks of the Thames; Paris (originally known as Par-Isis, or the House of Isis) grew from the flow of the Seine; Rome rose to become an empire along the banks of the River [...]

HOME PURE HOME: Living Clean From Floor To Ceiling

By Shicana Allen, © 2016 Chemtrails, cellphone towers, the Porter Ranch gas leak, Fukushima radiation traveling from Japan; pesticides & GMOs in the food supply. Everyday, consumers worry about and try to protect themselves from toxins and poisons invading their worlds. But what if significant culprits in the overall declining health of Americans reside right under our very roofs, in our homes and surrounding our beds? Unlike the externally-caused factors listed above, we have more control over our personal dwellings and are independently able to improve conditions [...]

Point/Counter-Point on Bernie Sanders

To choose one of a handful of Representatives that have been handpicked by a handful of even more powerful people known as Plutocrats! These powerful people have handpicked another batch for us to choose from! All except [...]

SoCal Gas Creates 10,000+ Environmental Refugees in L.A.

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-L.A. The Aliso Canyon/Porter Ranch methane leak is so large it will measurably set back not just the city's but the entire state's greenhouse gas emission targets, effectively erasing nearly a decade's worth of statewide emission reductions. It accounts for more than 25% of all emissions statewide, and gives the lie to the claims that methane, AKA "natural gas," is a "clean" energy source. Two schools and thousands of nearby residents have been forced to move while the leak from an underground storage [...]

Sunday February 28 2016 TURN OFF THE OSCARS!

by Rob Macon Not again! First 2015 and now 2016. The 88th Academy Awards, known as the Oscars, for yet another year has decided that whites only will celebrate being the best actors, rather than any other people of color. We Built This City,î as the song goes, which seems to be the mindset not only of the voting members of the Academy, but also, we're learning, of the Hollywood studio executives, who are the true culprits. Could it be the president of the Academy Cheryl Boone [...]
