False Borders

My name is Cassandra, from Poor Magazine. Today I’m talking about borders. I do not believe in borders due to the fact that I come from migrant family members that immigrated from Nayarit, Mexico to the United States twenty five years ago.

Leonard Peltier

Leonard Peltier born on september 12, 1944 In North Dakota, U.S. He was part of the American Indian Movement (AIM). Not only was he part of the AIM, but he was a leader. Leonard was arrested in 1977. He was blamed for “murdering two FBI agents”; witnesses say Leonard did not shoot them. But more than 60 members of the American Indian Movement were murdered.

Political Parties

 Good Afternoon everyone. My name is Mario Vega from POOR  Magazine. Today I will present about all the political parties. People only hear about the Democratic side and the Republican side. But what about the other parties, like the Green Party and the Peace and Freedom Party?

The Panama Papers

The Panama papers was when wealth hoarding scammers who look after themselves had been paying their taxes in Panama instead of America because in Panama taxes are less. Reporters have been researching this for a whole year while people had no idea what was going on and that's probably why people in America and in other places have more money over the normal people.

BlackArthur Violent Displacement: East Oakland is dismantled by displacement, one family, one elder at a time

“I know they never had any intention of us being here in their plans,” said Master Frohm as my Sun Tiburcio and so many young boys and girls call him who attend the beautiful school he founded that is Frohms Martial Arts Academy on BlackArthur at Seminary in East Oakland. Frohms Academy was just served an exhorbitant rent increase by the new owners of their building and are being forced to leave their neighborhood of 16 years.

 

The violence that hurts us all

“It’s okay, Puddin, it’s okay, we’re good.” I was more focused on calming my 10 year old daughter down than tending to my knee I hurt while hitting the floor as “Hood Terrorists” riddled our block (Eddy and Laguna Sts.) with bullets that missed my neighbor&rsquo

Concussion Review

I'm going to be doing a review on the movie Concussion, a movie about football and the dangers of it.

You could hate or love this guy: his name was Doctor Omalu.

Hey Brother

Life is short for some people and life is long for others and it's hard to except the value of death. But without death there is no living life to the fullest. That's what Mark, a man who died too soon after a hemorrhage and facing the comeback of what the struggle can to people and sadly he had died leaving the world and going on his journey. Mark Flaherty a man who was born in 1969 and died in 2016.

A day For Mark Flaherty

The funeral started around 11 o' clock on a Thursday. At first it began cloudy then about a couple of minutes later it got sunny. The car he was in came, then his sister went along as some of his family and friends saw Mark for the last time. It was sad seeing Aunt Viv cry and depressing for most of his family. Then the pallbearers carried the casket toward the grave, then put it on top of something to carry the casket and lower it down.

A breeze for Mark

There was a small breeze that crawled through the graveyard in Vallejo, California. It seemed that that breeze was honoring along with us the amazing man Mark Flaherty who died January 28, 2016 at the age of forty-seven. When we got to the site of the funeral we saw a group of people spread out and waiting for the hearse.
