NPA News

 The New Progressive Alliance (NPA) s a 100-percent volunteer, educational organization comprised of ACTIVE ACTIVISTS dedicated to improving the lives of working men and women and their families by positively influencing public policy. We work to awaken Americans to the reality that only through supporting candidates who support our concerns will those concerns be met. Toward that end, we support the Unified Platform; participate in official public comment opportunities to regulatory agencies; and sponsor and partake in a host of events designed to raise public consciousness of the extent to which corporations maintain near-total control of the political and policy-making process in this country.

  • In July we retweeted a graph showing how bad COVID 19 was in the United States by comparing states in the United States with countries.
  • In July we published a New Progressive Alliance article which describes the dramatic increase in poverty over decades thanks to the policies of both parties. It has 301 references.

  • How far will fossil fuels go to destroy the planet?  In July the NPA published “The quiet campaign to make clean energy racist: To stop a small city's climate policy, fossil fuel interests sent in a front group, threatened COVID infections, and may have even manufactured a racism controversy.” 

  • In July we published a New Progressive Alliance article which describes the decline of labor over decades thanks to the policies of both parties. It has over 80 references.
  • In June the New Progressive Alliance welcomes Extinction Rebellion as an ally. Extinction Rebellion believes because of climate change we face floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failure, mass displacement and the breakdown of society. The time for denial is over. It is time to act. Conventional approaches of voting, lobbying, petitions and protest have failed because powerful political and economic interests prevent change. Our strategy is therefore one of non-violent, disruptive civil disobedience – a rebellion.

  • In June we published our NPA article on our crumbling infrastructure with over 115 references.
  • In June we published a reference to  a book that really struck a chord with me. The Democratic Party, the Green Party, 350, and my own beloved New Progressive Alliance have all failed to bring about necessary change. The book is Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only Nonviolent Rebellion Can Now Stop Climate Breakdown and Social Collapse   by Roger Hallam What can we all do to avert catastrophe and avoid extinction?  In Common Sense for the 21st Century, Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, outlines how movements around the world need to come together now to start doing what works: engaging in mass civil disobedience to make real change happen. The book gives people the tools to understand not only why mass disruption, mass arrests, and mass sacrifice are necessary but also details how to carry out acts of civil disobedience effectively, respectfully and nonviolently. It bypasses contemporary political theory, and instead is inspired by Thomas Paine, the pragmatic 18th-century revolutionary whose pamphlet Common Sense sparked the American Revolution. Common Sense for the 21st Century urges us to confront the truth about climate change and argues forcefully that only a revolution of society and the state, similar to the turn that Paine urged the Americans to take into the political unknown, can save us now.
