In Sidney S. Watts' letter of Sept. 29, he refers to an organization in Long Beach called Long Beach Area Citizens Involved (LBACI). He labels the group as "left-wing community activists" and their community newspaper as a "radical alternative" newspaper. He also implies that the group is "socialist."
I wish to inform your readers that LBACI is neither left-wing, radical nor socialist. It is an 11-year-old, grass-roots, 530-member organization with a program for better government, clean air, renters' rights and anti-big business control of people's lives. If that program warrants all that name-labeling, well, so be it.
We will be pleased to send a free copy of our newspaper, Citizen News, and our complete program to anyone who calls or writes us at 2625 E. 3rd St., Long Beach 90814.
