The Peace & Freedom Party of Florida (PFP) is an affiliate of the California-based Peace & Freedom Party, a ballot-qualified party founded 1967, and the related Peace & Freedom Alliance, a national umbrella group formed last year by the party’s National Organizing Committee (NOC). The Peace & Freedom Party of Florida, founded in August 2012, came into existence as the result of the National Organizing Committee’s efforts to build a broad-based, nonsectarian socialist electoral coalition to facilitate the needs of working-class Americans in national politics.
The Peace & Freedom Party of Florida is committed to socialism, democracy, ecology, feminism and racial equality and seeks to give voice to the principles embodied in the goals and objectives of the Peace & Freedom Party of California, as explicitly expressed in the party’s platform, by serving as an electoral alternative for working-class and poor Floridians.
As an open, multi-tendency, movement-oriented party opposed to crony capitalism, elitism, imperialism and endless wars, the Peace & Freedom Party of Florida is committed to toppling the tyranny of the corrupt, corporate-dominated two-party establishment whose policies — in Republican and Democratic administrations alike — have rendered the United States a shell of its former self, an impoverished nation in which 146.4 million people are now considered low-income, including more than 49 million who fall below the poverty level.
Working-class and poor Americans need a party that will fight for them.
It is in that spirit that the PFP of Florida enthusiastically supports the Peace & Freedom Party’s presidential and vice-presidential nominees — comedienne Roseanne Barr of Hawaii and antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan of California, both of whom were chosen at the party’s presidential nominating convention in Los Angeles, California, on August 4, 2012 — as its candidates for President and Vice President of the United States, respectively, on the Florida general election ballot.
In addition to vigorously supporting the Peace & Freedom Party’s candidates for President and Vice President of the United States in 2012, the Peace & Freedom Party of Florida plans to nominate and campaign for congressional, state and local candidates in the in future election cycles in the Sunshine State.
