 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?

To begin, the Green Party was founded in 2001. This is another political party for people who fight for and vote for only Democratic candidates, who support nonviolence, social justice, LGBT rights and Anti Racism. For example, a person the Green Party would vote for is Hillary Clinton andBernie Sanders because both are in the Democratic Party and are eligible for what people in the Green Party want as a president. Rosa Clemente was the Vice Presidential running mate of Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia Mckinney In 2008. Rosa's work has also been on focusing on national liberation struggles within the United States. She has been focused on specific groups like the Young Lords Party and the Black liberation party. Ralph Nader was another person that was in the Green Party. In a 2004 campaign, he ran on a platform consistent with the Green Party's positions on major issues, such as opposition to the war in Iraq. Luis J. Rodriguez is an American Poet, his best work is “Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.”. In 2014, Rodriguez ran as the Green Party of California Candidate for Governor of California. He received 66.872 votes. "Rodriguez has also founded or co-founded numerous organizations, including the Tía Chucha Press, which publishes the work of unknown writers," according to Wikipedia. This let’s writers who do not want to be identify because of their status be able to publish their stories anonymously.

The second political party is the Peace and Freedom Party. It was founded on June 23, 1967. The Peace and Freedom Party is committed to socialism, democracy, ecology, feminism and racial equality. They support the working class and they also represent them as well. People who are running to be the President in the Peace and Freedom Party for 2016 are Lynn Kahn, Gloria La Riva and Monica Moorehead.

The Democratic Party, founded in 1828, is the second oldest existing political party. Its rival is the Republican Party. The Democratic Party helps the working class and also focuses on economic issues like global warming and working people's rights. A member of the Democratic Party is Bernie Sanders. He feels as if black people should stop been harassed by police officers, stop being killed without having a fair trial, and that police officers should get arrested for killing an innocent person.

The Republican Party was founded on March 20, 1854. The Northern Republicans had the idea to extend slavery. They felt like it was a good thing to do. A member of the Republican party is Donald Trump. hHe feels as if people who have migrated to the United States should go back to their countries because they are stealing American people’s job. He also feels like some Mexican people are bringing crime and drugs, and they are rapists.

In conclusion, people only know about the Democratic side and the Republican side. But now that I have spoken about the other parties. that are the Green Party and the Peace and Freedom Party, people will now know about all the parties.
