We condemn Indonesian repression of Papuans.

BREAKING NEWS: The West Papua Human Rights Center shares an update on the status of one of the nonviolent West Papua activists Ricky Karel Yakarimilena who is a member of the national solidarity of Papuan students (SONAMAPA).

After being arrested and detained since last December and enduring legal proceedings in Indonesian courts in West Papua the Indonesian government has sentenced him to 10 months in prison for being proven to draw a West Papuan morning star flag at his home and posted the results of his picture on his Facebook social media account. According to Indonesian judges, Mr. Ricky was found guilty of his actions against Indonesia.

Punishing the activities of peace fighters in their own land is one way the Indonesian government stifles the democratic values ​​of the West Melanesian Papuans in the critical situation of the Pandemic COVID19 in Indonesia

When White home buyers rule out buying into neighborhoods, such as Beck’s that they perceive as Black or becoming Black, their consumer actions reduce the demand for housing and price competition in those communities.

While you have the time, think of what is said here to adjust to the post #covid-19 paradigm.

If this article is even a semblance of truth then here is why the Blackman/African should not be surprised because as MARCUS Mosiah Garvey teaches “Man, because of his sin which caused him to have fallen from his high estate of spiritual cleanliness to the level of a creature, who acts only for his own satisfaction by the gift of free will, must be regarded as a dangerous creature of life. When he wants to he can be good, otherwise he is generally bad. In dealing with him you must calculate for his vices and his damnable evils.” In other words, pay attention to the lessons of history.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey founded the UNIA-ACL to redeem the African from the travails of historical racial treachery. Blackman, know Thyself! Self reliance or perish..

Another victim of the #COVID-19 pandemic is the annual DC Emancipation Day Parade normally held around this time in April. We take a look back at our participation in 2019 which we intended to outdo since our 2019 decision to participate came at a late hour and left little time to fully organize our contingent. However, we were preceded and followed by marching bands which helped to invigorate the mood of the Division members. We were the only contingent displaying the RBG flag in a parade that signified the end of enslavement of Africans in Washington, DC. What was quite obvious was the promotion of DC statehood by many participants that left Division 330 members to wonder about the relevance of emancipation.

It's a great day in the whirlwind. Today we get to honor one of Black America's great heroes on his Birthday. As well as highlight the person we in part named our division this most honorable organization #UNIA-#ACL. Benjamin Bannaker's role in not only DC history but national/international history is downplayed tremendously. An effort in which we wish to correct. Benjamin Bannaker the multi genius who was mainly self taught Machinist, mathematician, Astronomer, Naturalist, Writer, Land/developer agricultural businessman, Surveyor, City Planner, "of the African race"....

Genuis.

We often hear his of his feats as boy when he planned and manifested irrigation systems, built wooden clock a wooken clock that keep time until he died 50 years later, calculated solar and lunar eclipses..

Wow.

Redesigned the city of Washington DC after L'enfant's tantrum (some attribute Ellicott, however Benjamin Banneker known for feats of memory is commonly view as the true visionary). His surveying of the night's sky in accordance with the layout of metaphysical and scientific alignment. He debated known racist then secretary of state and future president thomas jefferson on the it's a intellectual capacity & humanity of Black men and women nationwide during those times of slavery. His almanacs were extremely accurate and trusted. His almanacs saved many people and businesses on land and sea....

Today is Benjamin Banneker birthday and we wish to not only right the wrongs of his minimization but prop up a great Black man. Thank you Benjamin Banneker for all you've done in the dispelling of racist myths of Black inferiority by not only being living example of excellence in a time filled with hate and torture of slavery but doing it consistently over a long period. Thank you.

AME Church and Black Banks Launch New Partnership for Black Wealth - Black Enterprise

What should continue to build in the effort to close the wealth gap between people of African descent and other ethnic groups. Ambassador of the African Union, at the time, Her Excellency Arikana Chihombori-Quao endorsed this effort and called on Continental Africans to support by doing their banking with Black owned banks. So much of African wealth is doled out to faith based institutions on weekends that it cannot be over stated that God will not help those who refuse to help themselves.

The AME Church has announced an innovative economic partnership with black-owned banks across the country. The partnership aims to be a catalyst to spur business development, homeownership and wealth in the black community.

Our Story

The mission of Division #330 is based on the Preamble of the Constitution and By-Laws of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League which states “A social, friendly,humanitarian, charitable, educational, institutional, constructive and expansive society, and is founded by persons desiring to the utmost to work for the general uplift of the Negro peoples of the world. And the members pledge themselves to do all in their power to conserve the rights of their noble race and to respect the rights of all mankind, believing always in the Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God. The motto of the organization is " One God! One Aim! One Destiny!" Therefore let justice be done to all mankind, realizing that if the strong oppresses the weak, confusion and discontent will ever mark the path of man but with love, faith, and charity towards all the reign of peace and plenty will be heralded into the world and the generations of men shall be called Blessed.”

The Woodson Banneker Jackson-Bey Division #330 has taken the step to recognize the UNIA-ACL REHABILITATING COMMITTEE 2020 as the Parent Body of the Division so as to join with those seeking to regain the respectability of the Pan-African world after almost four years of near alienation caused by the inability of the Michael Duncan administration to communicate, whether by accident or design, with progressive African diaspora organizations working towards a United Africa and to maintain positive relations with several UNIA-ACL Divisions chartered prior to year 2016. Division #330 works to unite socially, economically, culturally and politically with other African descendant organizations throughout the UNIA-ACL District #3 (Washington, DC; Maryland; Virginia). ONE GOD, ONE AIM, ONE DESTINY.

Ubuntu Jambo one and all, Brother Michael Stenson of 121 in Philadelphia would like to know if there is a UNIA chapter in Houston, and feels that UNIA, and the Black Cross Nurses should lend a hand.
Thanks Dwight GordonGordon I found the page. It's my honor to work together, in strengthening our communities and youths all around the world! Social Justice, to fight oppression and racism. Respect - It was wonderful raising the flag at Queens Park and at City Hall. Yes we need to keep our history. I'm here, for the Lord is my keeper. And thanks for meeting all of you. We can do much together, and mentoring our youths. "A tree can be bent easily when at an early stage of growing, after that forget it". Blessings!
