Nickelsville campers relocate to UMOJA Center property in the CD
Posted on Friday, March 18, 2016 – 1:29 pm by Bryan Cohen
The fallout from last week’s eviction of the Nickelsville camp near the intersection of Seattle’s two interstates has reached the Central District. Around 20 former Nickelsville campers have temporarily relocated to the UMOJA P.E.A.C.E Center property at 23rd and E Spring. A dozen sleeping tents and a kitchen tent went up on the property earlier this week.
The now displaced residents of the sanctioned tent and tiny house encampment on Dearborn Ave. were evicted by property owners Coho Real Estate after the campers voted to disassociate from the Nickelsville organization and run the camp themselves, citing unfair treatment by the Nickelsville leadership. Coho had partnered with the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd to sponsor the site and lawfully host it on its property.

European Stability Mechanism = Debt Slavery
The treaty becomes definite when the parliaments of the 17 euro-countries will have ratified the ESM-treaty. They are expected to do so between now and 31 December 2011.
What is this aberration?
That was my first reaction when I saw this video. This is not possible. An organization that can empty the state’s coffers, just like that? We live in a democratic country, don’t we? To be sure, I searched for the official texts.
TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN STABILITYMECHANISM (ESM)
The articles mentioned in the video are easy to find (from page 19). As for the rest of the treaty, I have not been able to find anything that would limit this dictatorial power in any way! I am still shaking!
But how is this possible within the framework of the treaties of the European Union? For this constitutes an illegal extension of the competences of the Union! Searching further I find out a number of decisions have been taken discretely and quickly to make this ESM “possible”.
I am certain that if politicians in our country wanted to create a club, that would have the freedom to empty the coffers of the State when it wants and as often as it wants, they would not succeed in obtaining the needed changes in the law, not even in twenty years! But Brussels’ bureaucracy succeeds in adapting the treaties at high speed to commit this coup d’état in 17 countries simultaneously!!!
The Brussels sprint
On 17 December 2010 the European Council decided there was a need for a permanent stability mechanism to take over the tasks of the Financial Stabilization Mechanism (EFSM) and the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF). These are two rapidly erected organizations, respectively in May and June 2010, to supply loans to countries with too many debts. However, these organizations lack a legal basis.
Let us already note here that these organizations were explicitly conceived for financial interventions, while the amendment in the treaty that allows the establishment of the ESM, also allows setting up organizations for quite other fields of action.
This amendment arrived on March 25 2011. To avoid having to organize referendums in Europe once more, they used article 48.6 of the Treaty of the European Union, which allows the European Council to decide changes in the articles of the treaty, under condition they don’t constitute an extension of the competences of the EU. (Those decisions have to be ratified by the national parliaments, but that is generally a formality.) The amendment consisted of an innocent looking addition to a paragraph of article 136 (TFEU). In short, this addition stipulated that “the countries using the euro were allowed to establish a stability mechanism to safeguard the stability of the euro zone as a whole”. Expressed this way, it does not deal exclusively with financial stability. Surveillance of vigilant citizens, oppression of protests, , or the fight against any other destabilizing element in the euro-zone, can, via this amendment, be conferred to new organizations under EU-flag.
In other words, this amendment surely constitutes an extension of the competences of the EU. Thus, it violates article 48.6 of the Treaty of the European Union. Nevertheless, no Minister and no national Parliament were bothered by this and in Brussels they happily and promptly continued to draw up the ESM treaty.
On 20 June 2011 the national Parliaments authorized that the tasks of the ESM treaty would be executed by the EU and the European Central Bank.
Assessing the state of Africatown amid rapid Central District redevelopment
Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 – 7:34 am by Bryan Cohen
In the struggle to forge a neighborhood identity in the same vein as the Chinatown/International District, Africatown has come to represent a movement as much as neighborhood — a movement to create more black institutions, businesses, and influence in the the Central District.

I WAS A CHILD MEMBER OF MT ZION CHURCH IN THE 1950s WHEN REV DAVIS WAS REPLACED BY THIS NEO- COLONIAL IMPORT TO SEATTLE.

Help Umoja Peace Center Plant Seeds & Grow Dreams with a Donation Today!
These children are learning and expanding their imaginations at an Intro to Visual Design & Storytelling class at the Young Geniuses Academy (YGA), one of the many programs for children and teens at the Umoja Peace Center (UPC). YGA provides learning and enrichment opportunities to children and youth in our communities to fill the gaps left by public schools who have limited art, technical and cultural enrichment learning opportunities due to budget cuts.
From coding workshops that bridge the digital divide–to international art projects–to embracing our global citizenry, UPC is providing high quality learning opportunities to children and teens in our community. It takes a village to raise a child and UPC is a village we need.
UPC helps children and teens overcome obstacles to success through education enhancement projects that build marketable skills, self confidence and cultural pride and identity. UPC’s after school learning programs, homework lab and Saturday workshops, provide a space for children and teens to realize their full potential in an atmosphere that celebrates, nurtures and cultivates positive self expression.
Your support is critical at this time as the program lacks funds for art supplies, instructors and the cost of a December 12th event for Young Geniuses to showcase their talents. By giving a donation today, you will help us create a vibrant community of lifelong learners whose creativity and ingenuity have a positive impact our local and global community.
It’s easy to invest in our kids. Our goal is to raise $2,500 by Tuesday December 8th. We need 50 people to give $50 today in order to cover basic expenses for the program this month.
Any amount will help us pay for educational materials and supplies for our classes and events. With your donation we can expand our reach and continue to provide educational programs and opportunities four our kids.
Thank you so much for your support!
