2014 Wrap UP

We developed a framework to a solution that require actions by many by the time the USA is reviewed by the world as part of the UPR.   Ferguson has become the rallying cry of a new generation of activists who can be the change if they are mentored by elder who go into partnership with them to be the change.

WE base our solution to institutionalized federal government racism on a variety of studies, reports and plan and plan a fully documented update starting on day one of the 2014 Kwanzaa Accords Third Emancipation Forum.

Federal Reserve Audit by GAO show POTUS authorized upto $16 Trillion Dollars in Quantitative Easing authority and we Friends of the African Union through our chamber of commerce member McGraw Mcgraw Daniels LLC asked the #UNUPR (United Nations Human Rights Universal Periodic Review of the asked for $5T of it Sept 15 2014 to end institutionalized federal gov racism that lets us monitor the police and courts.

We plan to use Public Private Partnerships to end Institutionalized Federal Government Racism through execution of a solutions proposed to the UN via the ‪#‎UNUPR‬.

August 20th 2014
From: Mwalimu Wesley Kabaila, Chair, CONGRESS OF AFRICAN PEOPLE; Editor in Chief, Sankofa Press

Greetings and Hotep!

I would like to humbly address this letter to Black Youth and Students, in particular, but also to all youth and students who have lent their support to the Movement for Justice in the matter of Michael Brown, of Ferguson Missouri.

We all share in the loss of Mike with his family, as he was about to enter college 2 days after his assassination by a Ferguson police officer. This police officer snatched a valuable life from our family and community, and we know not, what worthy contributions he would have made in the building of our community, and/or the sustenance of his family. Another young black man taken from us too soon.

I was moved to write this letter as a result of the many interviews I have seen on the Chris Hayes show (MSNBC) of community, youth and student activists who have come to Ferguson to engage in the marches on behalf of Justice for Michael Brown. America has a history of extending rights to all people, but denying those same rights to those not in the ruling race/class.

The laws of this country are manipulated by an elite to serve their interests and the maintenance of privilege for the few over the many. Your righteous, just and determined actions in Ferguson over the last week have sought to change that equation and you give honor to those who have come before you, in the name Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Fannie Lou Hamer, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Zora Neale Hurston, Nat Turner, Gabriel Prosser, W.E.B. DuBois and Marcus Garvey. Today, you follow in the traditions they established to fight for human dignity, human worth, Self Determination and the inalienable rights of man.
First, let me say a word about who I am, and what motivated me to write this Open Letter in this format. I was born Wesley Jenkins, named after my father, and to parents who thought they couldn't have children after ten years of marriage. My mother called me a "miracle baby".

Thus, I was raised as an only child in New York, then New Jersey. Around the time that I became a teenager, 12 or 13 yrs. old, I began seeing news broadcasts of demonstrations, sit-ins and marches in the South. I knew what Jim Crow was from when my family traveled South for Family Reunions, and I would see the "Colored Only" signs, and I would ask my father why we couldn't stop in certain locations for restroom calls.

I then, understood why my mother would cook up baskets of chicken so we wouldn't have to stop at restaurants for food. So, at that young age, I began to formulate an understanding of why my people were demonstrating in the South, but thought of it as being far removed from my experience.

But then, in 1963, at the age of 15, some of my friends and I boarded buses leaving New York City bound for Washington, DC, and the March on Washington. I remember our amazement at the number of buses headed in the same direction to the same event down the Jersey and Pennsylvania Turnpikes. We met many other young people at the rest stops. This single event began to transform my consciousness, along with the Birmingham Church bombing, and the murder of Emmett Till.

These events led me to leave the mostly white school I attended in NJ, and do my last year of High School and an all black boarding school (Laurinburg Institute) in North Carolina, giving up football scholarships and all. After attending an HBCU, Tennessee State, for my first year of college, I left to come to California to finish school. After only a few short months, I joined the Black Cultural Nationalist, Us Organization, headed by Dr. Ron Karenga, the founding organization of the holiday, Kwanzaa.

I became Chair of its Student Affairs Committee, and later became its Vice Chair, Head of Security, and the Head of its Simba Wachanga (Swahili for "Young Lions" Youth Movement). I am currently Chair of the Congress of African People (CAP) and Chief of Staff, of the Friends of the African Union (FAU), Congresses.

I share this background information with you, not out of any sense of vanity, but to attempt to demonstrate the great sense of pride and the depth of my respect for the demonstrations our youth of all strata are involved in to get Justice for Michael Brown and his family.

As I listen to many of you, it is almost like looking in a time capsuled mirror. We used to call you "Generation X" cause noone knew what direction you were headed in. That moniker no longer applies. You are now, the generation which will take what my generation did, to the next level, from Civil Rights to Human Rights.

When I see you articulating your positions so intelligently, forming unity bonds, holding Town Halls, providing security, maintaining order, forcefully asserting your rights, resisting the forces of oppression and racism, protecting women and children, and advocating for and asserting your basic human rights of Self Determination, I am overwhelmed and overjoyed with love and vindication for my own life. Many of my family and friends would ask why I lived the life I lived, which was full of sacrifice and dedication, but your actions today are the only answers needed, as we watch all of you stand firm for Michael and the Human Rights of our National Community.
We should state here, also, that other communities around the country are standing in solidarity with you, from Harvard to Howard and Morehouse, from Los Angeles to Times Square in New York City. Your example does not stop at the borders edge, as you are now being watched and admired in Gaza, Ghana, South Africa, London, Paris, Barbados, Brazil, Columbia, Panama, West Papua, and the Virgin Islands.
We also recognize the work you have done in preparation for this event in Jena and on behalf of Trayvon Martin and his family. I encourage all of you to become familiar with the Dredd Scott Decision and Missouri Compromise, both of which contributed to the start of the Civil War, and were enacted only miles from Ferguson.

You are carrying the history of our Sacred Ancestors on your shoulders, and we as Elders in the Movement, applaud your actions.

Please allow me to add, that your actions, like those in my generation, are founded on sound principles of Truth, Justice, Peace, Power, Unity and Self Determination. These are Righteous Principles which can be traced back to at least, 7000 years of the History of African Descended People. You are now standing up for the best tradition of what it means to be African and Human in the World. Your actions today, on behalf of Michael Brown, re-enforce the dignity and divinity of the African Personality, as Franz Fanon wrote about.
When you stand up for Freedom and Dignity, you bring all of Humanity closer for Full and Final Liberation, because you are a key people in a key country and our Liberation benefits All. You are warriors for Justice and the Restoration of Free and Just Society. America is an experiment, and has many contradictions, but there is still the chance for it to transform itself in order to fulfill its original promise. The work which all of you are doing in Ferguson today is a step in that direction.
I would like to say a word also, about the nature of protest. This country prides itself by telling other countries abroad about the right to bring grievances to the government, but then, when its own citizens decide to exercise that right, it seeks to find every means it can to restrict, repress and is some cases, deny that right to its own citizenry.
I/We are proud to see every strata of our Youth Cadres coming and working together for a common cause, in spite of the powers that be who seek to divide you, by calling one element criminal. In America, it cannot be criminal to protest, and to seek redress of historical wrongs, "By Any Means Necessary".
What is criminal is to continue on a daily basis to gun down our unarmed youth on streets all across this country. What is criminal is to bring an armored vehicle with a 50 caliber machine gun atop to threaten and terrorize protesters who are throwing rocks. What makes this scenario any different from Gaza or Soweto? Lest we forget who trained and supported these State Terrorists.
But, be not dismayed. The strategy and tactics we use today have greatly expanded. The end game is not merely to protest, as the powers that be would have their audience believe. Todays protest are not just limited to a redress of grievances. They become part of a process of what we call, in the movement, "Capacity Building", i.e. they expand the opportunity for our people to occupy key areas of Social Space, which we as a Community, need to thrive, grow and develop. The protests of today are part of the process of breaking the umbilical chord of dependentcy, which characterized past movements.

The clarion cry of the day, is Nation Building, where we, as a National Community, seek to build new industries indigenous to our community, engage in economic empowerment projects and programs, are determined to control and chart our own destiny, to always honor our ancestors, to maximize Unity in our Community, to build the links which Unite our Pan African Family, to solidify the relationships with allies of all shades and strata, and to make a better life for our children and families.
So, don't get it twisted. Today is not yesterday, and today's marchers are not the same as those of yesteryear. Their is a New Black Man and Women on the horizon, who are proud, intelligent, conscious of their historical role, and who are preparing to step on the Stage of Human History, as Free, Proud and Productive People, ready to take their future into their own hands and hearts.
It is in this context, that I would submit, that the motto for the day should be, "ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE!!!!!"
We as Elders, are in the process of putting in place a framework which will not only protect you, but also, allow you to grow, develop and flourish and continue to build on the kind of history which you are making today. We are committed to leave a structure and legacy for your generation to build on.
You are proving yourselves worthy of such a legacy, as our foreparents did for us. I encourage all of you to look into your African Personality and find the beauty revealed there. Seek to build a New World with new and innovative ideas, which challenge conventional wisdom. Study the thought and practices of your Ancestors, current and ancient, and learn the lessons they left, and seek to emulate the best of them in the formation of a New World, and New Africa, and New African People. Michael Brown has made all of us take pause and re-calibrate our thinking and actions, to redefine our strategies and tactics, goals and aspirations.
These are suggested ways on honoring the best in Michael Brown, Renisha, Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, and those we haven't mentioned. The Co-Vice Chair of the Congress of African People, Zakiya Penny, and resident of St. Louis, is right there with you and giving us daily and weekly updates. Continue to make those of us who have now become Elders, Proud.
We Love and Cherish you! We Support you!!! And your spirit lifts our hearts with each passing Sunrise and Sunset, and the Ancestors join as we close this Open Letter, In Peace and Power!!!!
Ase', Hotep MK 81814

In that framework we gave to the UN HRC the information that we had on the dealth of Mike Brown as we had it Sept 15th 2014, the UN deadline.  Let us be clear we did so as a example of problems that are within our reach to solve by POTUS's unilateral actions.

Universal Periodic Review on solution to American Federal Racism

We now have a medical diagnosis for racism that we use in our UN authorized 3 minute speech to the UN HRC May 2015 on the Universal Periodic Review of the USA using the Cincinnati (city), Cleveland (region} and St. Louis (county) as examples.We plan to get it entered into the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and accepted by the United Nations HRC.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, offers a common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders. It is used, or relied upon, by clinicians, researchers, psychiatric drug regulation agencies, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, the legal system, and policy makers together with alternatives such as the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), produced by the World Health Organization (WHO). The DSM is now in its fifth edition, DSM-5, published on May 18, 2013.
On Sept 15th 2014 we used those 3 regions mentioned above as examples of racism-problems in the USA and our $5 Trillion Dollar solution.  We will have a free conference call FAU Chamber African Disporia Public Private Partnerships driven by Parents of the Friends of the African Union and Congress of African People it is a Weekly Event - Every Monday in 2015 starting Jan 12th 2015: 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT) Conference Call 6PM EST Monday at 641-715-3340 PIN 106132#
The Friends of the African Union joined with the New Future Foundation on Sept. 15th 2014 submitted the facts of the Mike Brown case, known then, as an example, to the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and US State Dept. of possible police misconduct, in line with the deadline for such a submission in regards to The Universal Periodic Review of the USA in 2015. It is our intention to give the Office of the High Commissioner the entire grand jury report and our comments.
The Universal Periodic Review "has great potential to promote and protect human rights in the darkest corners of the world.” – Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General

It is time to capitalize on our joint skills, contacts and intellectual property through a patent pool process created based on the goal of ending institutionalized governmental racism in the United States of America. We submitted such a plan through the Universal Periodic Review process


The Universal Periodic Review (UPR), established by the UN General Assembly in 2006, is a process through which the human rights records of the United Nations’ 193 Member States are reviewed and assessed. This review, conducted through the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), is based upon human rights obligations and commitments expressed in the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and other human rights instruments to which the State is party, such as human rights conventions. The United States is a strong supporter of the UPR process, which provides a unique avenue for the global community to discuss human rights around the world.

Individual countries are slated for review every four and a half years, with the United States scheduled for its second review in early May of 2015. UPR sessions take place at the HRC in Geneva, and are framed by reports submitted by national governments. The report submitted by the United States government for its UPR reflects interagency input and consideration of information collected from consultations with civil society and the American public.

As FAU is part of an official UN NGO joint venture we responded and now can draw on the resources of those UN Nations and their civil society which are in ‪#‎UNUPR‬ on ‪#‎USA‬ for help on our plan to use Quantitative Easing to solve the problem of institutionalized federal racism in the USA.

Here is the USA position.Note: This document compiles in one place both the text of the recommendations supported by the United States during the first Universal Periodic Review (UPR) cycle, as they were listed in the UPR Working Group’s January 2011 Report (A/HRC/16/11), and the comments and positions the United States articulated on those recommendations in its March 2011 response (A/HRC/16/11/Add.1). Because the second UPR cycle will focus on recommendations supported by the United States, this document omits those recommendations that the United States did not support in 2011. Although the titles of some headings and placement of some of the recommendations have been altered slightly, the recommendations, responses, and general substance remain unchanged.

The UPR is designed to ensure equal treatment for every country when their human rights situations are assessed. The ten areas to be commented on that we will ask for our peoples help on these subject headings detailed by the US State Dept. in response to the UPR:

(1) civil rights, ethnic, and racial discrimination;
(2) criminal justice issues;
(3) indigenous issues;
4) national security;
(6) labor and trafficking;
(7) economic, social and cultural rights and measures;
(8) the environment;
(9)domestic implementation of human rights, and;
(10)treaties and international human rights mechanisms.
Our solution was based, in part, on a update to this report at UC in 2003.

Our solution, from the NFF & FAU communities, went to Press at the United Nations Sept 15th 2014 based on Cincinnati CCA.

It is but a framework that must be customized to each state.

The Center for Constitutional Rights visited Cincinnati to release its report on the findings of the hearing convened by CCR at the University of Cincinnati in May, 2003. The visit included meetings with local area officials, both public and private, business leaders and members of the Boycott Council to discuss progress in addressing the crisis affecting Black communities in Cincinnati and CCR’s recommendations for future steps to be taken.

First African Union Consultation Meeting with the Diaspora on the African Union Agenda 2063 Oct. 8th - 10th 2013

Friends of the African Union and McGraw Daniels was asked by the African Union in August 2013 to the First African Union Consultation Meeting with the Diaspora on the African Union Agenda 2063 - New York, United States of America Oct. 8th through the 10th 2013
Agenda 2063 is both a Vision and an Action Plan. It is a call for action to all segments of African society to work together to build a prosperous and united Africa based on shared values and a common destiny. In their 50th Anniversary Solemn Declaration, the Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU), while acknowledging past successes and challenges, rededicated themselves to the continent’s accelerated development and technological progress.

They laid down vision and eight ideals to serve as pillars for the continent in the foreseeable future, which Agenda 2063 will translate into concrete objectives, milestones, goals, targets and actions/measures. Agenda 2063 strives to enable Africa remain focused and committed to the ideals envisaged in the context of a rapidly changing world Why a 50 Year Agenda? Fifty years is, undoubtedly, an extremely long development planning horizon, however strategic we may call it. Is this a serious choice? How can one realistically plan given breath-taking changes globally and within the continent? What are the benefits of such long-term planning? These are some of the questions raised by many people from all corners.

The choice of a 50 year time must be understood within the context of the 50th Anniversary of the establishment of the OAU; and the need for the continent to take stock of achievements, successes/ failures and map out a long-term vision as well as set goals and targets. In operational terms, the Agenda 2063 would be a rolling plan of 25 years, 10 years, 5 years and short term action plans.

Agenda 2063 - Why now?

This new effort to envision Africa’s long-term development trajectory is timely for several reasons:
  1. Changing global context. Globalization and the information technology revolution have provided unprecedented opportunities for countries and regions with the right policies to make significant advances and lift huge sections of populations out of poverty, improve incomes and catalyze economic and social transformations. In addition, most African economies now have in place sound macro-economic and market-oriented economies which have spurred growth, trade and investment expansion.
  2. Building on the NEPAD experience. National, regional and global efforts made to implement NEPAD, unseen during the LPA and AT, have enabled AU to build institutions (e.g., APRM, etc.), demonstrate unprecedented commitment to implement agreed agenda, generate valuable lessons that present strong foundation for Agenda 2063. Indeed, Agenda 2063 is a logical and natural continuation of NEPAD and other initiatives.
  3. A more united and strong Africa. Africa today is more united, a global power to reckon with, capable of rallying support around a common agenda and speaking with one voice with demonstrated strong capacity to negotiate and withstand the influence of forces that would like to see it divided.
  4. Strong and well functioning regional institutions. Africa’s sub regional institutions have been rationalized and the eight officially AU recognized Regional Economic Communities (CEN-SAD, COMESA, EAC, ECCAS, ECOWAS, IGAD, SADC and UMA) are today strong development and political institutions that citizens’ can count on and Agenda 2063 can stand on.
  5. New development and investment opportunities. Africa today is faced with a confluence of factors that present a great opportunity for consolidation and rapid progress. These include:
    • Unprecedented positive and sustained growth trajectory of many African countries resulting from sound macro-economic policies and strategies bolstered by high commodity prices
    • Significant reduction of armed conflicts, improved peace and stability, coupled with advances in democratic governance.
    • A fast rising broad based African entrepreneurial and middle class, coupled with the youth bulge, which can act as catalyst for further growth and technological progress.
    • Changes in the international finance architecture, the rise of the BRICS and improved flows of FDI to Africa beyond commodity producing sectors.
The above factors constitute a unique opportunity for Africa to capitalize upon. Agenda 2063 while seizing these opportunities, underlines the fact that success depends on unity of purpose; transparency; placing citizens’ first; sound governance; willingness and capability to assess performance and correct mistakes timely.

What is the added value of Agenda 2063 and how does it take account of past and ongoing policies and programmes at national, regional and continental levels?

Agenda 2063 should be seen as a logical continuation of recent developments with renewed and invigorated efforts to catalyze development and strengthen African integration and unity. It aims to build upon the achievements and draw lessons from earlier strategic planning efforts at the regional and sub-regional levels, including the Lagos Plan of Action, the Abuja Treaty and the NEPAD, to address new and emerging issues in the continent over the short, medium and long-term. Indeed, Agenda 2063’s guiding principle is continuity of actions, drawing appropriate lessons, building upon what has worked in the past; and in brief making every effort to do things better.

Thus Agenda 2063 should be seen as a unique opportunity to recreate the African narrative by putting it into perspective to energize the African population and harness citizens creativity through a set of clear goals that citizens participate in setting for unity, peace and development in the 21st century. The thrust of Agenda 2063 is a program of social, economic and political rejuvenation that links the past, present and the future in order to create a new generation of Pan Africanists that will harness the lessons learnt and use them as building blocks to consolidate the hope and promises of the founding parents for a true renaissance of Africa.

Agenda 2063 is expected to be a source of inspiration for development of national and regional sustainable development plans.

Look at how big Africa is today.

The African Diaspora in the USA is over 60 million people earning a trillion dollars.
The African Diaspora is at least over 300 million people worldwide earning 2 trillion dollars.
All of Africa which is that big with a billion people earns a little over 2 trillion dollars.
The African Union wants to create a 1.4 billion person market with at least 4 trillion dollars in GDP.
FAU plans to serve a million employers in this marketplace and support services to 7 million homes.

The mural depicts images associated with the school's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) curriculum.

Our potential FAU STEM School partner is TAFT.  Meeting this week with LSDMC on Thursday with our proposal.
