UMMOA expanding to a new archipelago

The United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) started the year with a big bang.

For starters, the Principality of Aloha (Italian: Principato di Aloha; Interlingua: Principato de Aloha) was made a member of the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR), and it also became the UMMOA’s 14th member nation! Fourteen is a sacred number to Cesidians.

The news gets more interesting. Mahealani Ventura (aka Mahealani Ventura-Oliver), Princess of Aloha, after becoming a MPR professional, also became an UMMOA National on 3 January 2011, the UMMOA’s 50th National.

The UMMOA currently has five Ambassadors in good standing: an Ambassador to Italy; one to the US (Texas); one to France; one to India; and one to Turkey. Princess Mahealani will soon become our sixth Ambassador! She will be representing the UMMOA in the archipelago of ko Hawaii pae aina (the Hawaiian Islands), in Canada, in Alaska, in the Pacific North, and in the Pacific Basin.

Mahealani Ventura’s work thus far promises that she will be a great, if not an outstanding UMMOA Ambassador. She is a proactive participant in local politics and international venues for Maoli patent, human and civil rights. She initiated the only royal patent and insurance claims registry for the Maoli, and organised hui networks that promoted patent, law and financial literacy for Maoli and non Maoli in 2008. She is currently chairing a Human Rights Task Force and Ad Hoc Commission focused on the settlment of Human Rights Violations committed against the Maoli and others in ko Hawaii pae aina.

Mahealani Ventura is acting President of Ka paepae loa o Hawaii loa (the Hawaiiloa Foundation, a Native Hawaiian group with ownership rights to Crown land); President of the Hui o Kamaauwai (the native water board); and is Historian/Chair of the Ko Hawaii Pae Aina Ad Hoc Conciliation Commission (AHCC), a civil society organisation (CSO) registered with the United Nations (UN) Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA). Her profound knowledge of Hawaiian language, law, culture and dance, make Mahealani a human repository of cultural, traditional and customary knowledge.

In the near future, and with the assistance of Mahealani’s staff, the UMMOA will establish a Regional Office suitable for multiple parties/organisations. This does not exclude actual space for an UMMOA embassy/consulate on Crown land, which is a part of the royal patented estates of the Principality of Aloha.

We also hope to work with the bright people on Mahealani’s staff in order to bring the Principality of Aloha, and possibly other organisations and nations, to sign the three treaties I have authored or co-authored — the Great Pacific Garbage Patch Treaty (GPGPT), the Multi-Oceanic Garbage Patch (MOGPT), and the Space Debris Treaty (SDT) — and we also plan to work with the Principality in order to start the actual physical clean-up of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), i.e. the gyre(s) of the Pacific Ocean.

Of course, we are interested also in developing a new TLD in the Cesidian Root for the Principality of Aloha. Mahalo (Thank you).

World’s first Fifth World culture centre

Stephan Meyer, a German-born now residing Sainte-Valière in France, may modestly define himself as a cafetier, which is the French word for a café owner, but don’t let that fool you. The man practically runs the town, and it probably wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call him Deputy Mayor of Sainte-Valière, a small town near Narbonne and the southern coast of France.

I am proud to announce that Stephan has started Lo Gal, what is for all practical purposes the world’s first Fifth World culture centre.

It’s a place where up to 19 customers, speaking three official languages, can sit down and enjoy organic coffee, chocolate, or fruit juice. Hearing the customers chat, you would think the place is somewhere on the border between France, Germany, and the UK, but of course places like that don’t exist in the real world, only in the Fifth World!

Lo Gal also has a small beer and wine shop, which distributes especially organic faire from local wine producers and microbreweries; a delicatessen (or deli) that serves with fresh organic bread and spices; a multilingual library with over 2,000 books on stock with Fifth World themes such as gardening, homeschooling, natural health, organic cuisine, and nature (the overstock is sold on location or through the Internet); a multimedia library — with independent music, films, and art, and a proud member of the Association de l’Indépendance Musicale Solidaire Autonome or AIMSA — with Wi-Fi Internet access; a Linux demonstration centre for Open Source software; a tourist office; and a melting point where people gather to book author’s readings, small art exhibitions, or for alternative astrologer/magician guests. And by the way, if you decide to visit pretty Sainte-Valière and stay overnight, Lo Gal is also a small Bed & Breakfast!

By Christmas Lo Gal’s multilingual library will also have several copies of very Fifth Worldish books like The Fifth World: Micronationalism on Steroids, and All Religions Are Cults: And What a Few Good Priests, Monks, Rabbis and Mullahs Can Do About It, since the author of those books is making a donation to the library section of Lo Gal.

Finally, one should note that Stephan Meyer is also an Ummoagian, and a member of the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR).

The Lo Gal centre is registered with the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR), and accredited by the Fifth World Accreditation Agency (5WAA) as any authentic Fifth World institution.

Lo Gal is open every day from 9 am to 7 pm, except Tuesdays.

The UMMOA claims Banc du Geyser

The United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) is expanding its claims, and today has claimed a piece of the African continent.

With the seas claiming greater and greater areas of both lowland territories and islands, the UMMOA, as a signatory of both the GPGPT and MOGPT treaties, has decided to claim a 25th national component, the Banc du Geyser.

The Banc du Geyser (also Banc du Geysir) is a mostly submerged reef in the Mozambique Channel, some 125 km (78 mi) northeast from Mayotte, 112 km (70 mi) southwest of the Îles Glorieuses, and 200 km (124 mi) off the northwestern coast of Madagascar.

The Banc is a dangerous oval-shaped reef 8 km (5 mi) long and 5 km (3 mi) wide that becomes exposed only at low tides.

The reef is already claimed by France, Madagascar, and the Comoros, so the UMMOA becomes a fourth claimant.

Kabinda and UMMOA recognise one another

The République du Kabinda (República de Cabinda) and the Frente de Libertação do Estado de Cabinda (FLEC) have concluded a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA).

The République du Kabinda and FLEC are recognised as the only sovereign representative of the people of Kabinda (Cabinda), which has been engaged in a liberation struggle with the government of Angola. Kabinda is a member of the Organization of Emerging African States (OEAS) and the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO).

The United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) is recognised as a new political construct consisting of a multi-oceanic archipelago, with a platform dedicated to the protection of the environment, and is recognised by the International States Parliament for Safety and Peace (ISPSP).

Kabinda and the UMMOA have mutually recognised one another, and will support each others claims in the areas of technical, political, financial, and multilateral cooperation.

UMMOA claims disappearing islands

The UMMOA has signed three environmental treaties in the past with other micronations: the Great Pacific Garbage Patch Treaty, the Multi-Oceanic Garbage Patch Treaty, and the Space Debris Treaty.

These treaties effectively give the UMMOA, and micronational signatories, legal control over all of the high seas of the world, and even legal control over the space above the Earth’s atmosphere.

Well, since the seas of the world themselves are claiming greater and greater areas of both lowland territories and islands, the UMMOA, with a great suggestion of the Hon. Ilya Pakhomov, has decided to claim an 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23th, and 24th national component. Therefore the UMMOA now claims the following islands: Ghoramara Island (India), Lohachara Island (India), Bedford Island (India), New Moore/South Talpatti (India/Bangladesh), Tebua Tarawa (Kiribati), Bikeman Island (Kiribati) and Abanuea (Kiribati).

5WC expands to new continent

On 9 July 2011, the Fifth World Community (5WC), the world’s first diaxenospitia, expanded to a new continent.

Before this date, the 5WC was made up of buildings in New York State, South Carolina, Iowa, and the country of Belize. This means that while the “town hall” of the 5WC was located on Long Island, the diaxenospitia already extended to North and Central America.

Well, on 9 July 2011 the Palazzo dei Poeti (Mansion of Poets) was incorporated in the 5WC, a building located in the Apulia region of Italy, so now the Fifth World Community includes buildings in North America, Central America, and Europe.

If you wish to turn your building or property into a Cesidian law jurisdiction, and join the Fifth World Community (5WC), please contact the Mayor through the 5wc contact page.
