Since 2012 the New Progressive Alliance has made 100 Public Comments by ourselves or with other organizations in support of the Unified Platform.

Michael J. Cavlan gave us this article by Matthew Reece. Michael  is working on building a Green Party in line with its 10 values. If we are to make meaningful changes then we must advance  beyond looking at the two major parties of the duopoly as a football game.

An Interesting Conversation on the Way Forward

If one decided based on a lot of evidence that the Democratic and Republican Parties are not worth the effort, then what is left is the Green Party, by far the biggest party on the left. Other parties do not seriously run people and seem more like chess clubs who like to talk amongst themselves.

An Easy, Peaceful Solution to the Oregon Standoff

Anthony Noel is  founder of the NPA and co-founder of the Greenville Guardian from which this article comes. He makes a good point here. The contrast in responses between armed white people taking over a federal facility and black people peacefully protesting at Ferguson and other places is stark and shocking. Below is his fine article.
