LA Times writers perceives raves to be more dangerous than other events
Hi everyone thank you so much for signing our petition. Our culture has long suffered from the argument that raves are not good for society as they are a haven for drugs, particularly ecstasy.
The LA Times held a live chat in regards to the series of articles published online against electronic dance music culture which they simply dub "raves".
The Times writers continue to back their stance that raves are more dangerous than other types of events and cites the research they did in their "full investigation": http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-coliseum-rave-deaths-20130203,0,5564847.story?page=1
Electronic Music Alliance does not see the comparisons in their report that would back up and validate their claims. We encourage everyone to watch this chat and spread the word about the petition. We need a unified voice in telling the Times and our larger society that their perceptions of our culture are misguided.
