MPR praises Norway for awarding Nobel to Liu Xiaobo

“Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to China’s Liu Xiaobo desecrated the prize and could harm China-Norway ties,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu on Friday.

Ma said Liu was a criminal sentenced by the Chinese judicial authorities for violating Chinese law. “What he has done is contrary to the purpose of the Nobel Peace Prize,” he said.

The Wikipedia, on the other hand, defines Liu as a Chinese intellectual, an anti-communist, and a human rights activist widely regarded as political prisoner in China. Liu Xiaobo is the author of Charter 08 (Língbā Xiànzhāng), a manifesto initially signed by over 350 Chinese intellectuals and human rights activists in order to promote political reform and democratisation in the People’s Republic of China. Charter 08 was published on 10 December 2008, on the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Since its release, more than 8,100 people inside and outside of China have signed the charter.

As Norway braces for damage to its relations with China for giving the Nobel Peace Prize to human rights activist Liu Xiaobo, the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) is doing the very opposite. Despite the fact that no Norwegian has ever signed up for membership in the organisation, the MPR has added Norway to its list of recognised sovereign states.

The MPR believes that Norway, and in particular the Norwegian Nobel Committee, has done more than any other country to promote human rights in China, and thus it deserves to lauded, not chided.

“China is in breach of several international agreements to which it is a signatory, as well as of its own provisions concerning political rights. Article 35 of China’s constitution lays down that ‘citizens of the People’s Republic of China enjoy freedom of speech, of the press, of assembly, of association, of procession and of demonstration’. In practise, these freedoms have proved to be distinctly curtailed for China’s citizens,” the Nobel citation said.

MPR Categories introduced

On 4 October 2010 the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) introduced MPR Categories.

MPR Categories are categories that are part of a classification system, whose purpose is to organise essential information about individuals.

MPR Categories convey instant information about an individual’s age, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, relationship status, religion, language, and state/nation in a way that is comprehensive, succinct, non-discriminatory, and visually appealing. An example of an application of MPR Categories can be viewed on the right side of the web page below, underneath the words “MPR Categories”:

http://cesidio.org/press.html

Basically, the 9 MPR categories give instant information about yourself, and in a way that does not discriminate against minorities by sexual orientation, gender identity, relationship status, religion, or nationality.

New MPR policy towards CPCs

On 14 August 2009, the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) has enacted a new policy: any sovereign state recognised by the MPR that ends up on the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom’s (USCIRF) list of “Countries of Particular Concern” (CPC) — the US government’s designation for countries with ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom — shall cease to be recognised by the MPR. Sovereign states on the CPC list that were not already recognised, shall automatically become natio non grata, and shall be treated like nations on the MPR’s Certified Terrorist Nations (CTN) εν list.

Current states on the CPC list:

  • China
  • Eritrea
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Myanmar
  • Nigeria
  • North Korea
  • Pakistan
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Sudan
  • Turkmenistan
  • Uzbekistan
  • Vietnam

Current nations on the MPR’s CTN list:

  • Kingdom of EnenKio

It should be noted that the MPR recognises a free Burma, and the people or nation of Burma, not the Myanmar government, or the National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma (NCGUB). These latter two entities have no relations with the MPR. All Micronational Professional Registry recognition is de facto, not de jure.

The following nations recognise all states, nations, and other entities that the MPR recognises in a de facto manner: 1) Independent Long Island (ILI); 2) the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA); and 3) TTF-Bucksfan. MPR member nations are not obliged to follow the MPR in their foreign policy, although some nations/organisations have supported similar policies in the past. MPR members that wish to begin to follow similar policies to the MPR can contact the Hon Most Rev Dr Cesidio Tallini at his contact page below:

http://kontactr.com/user/hmrdct

Besides being an international professional registry, the MPR is a serious unrecognised government organisation (SUGO). It also issues independent intellectual property instruments such as Print Monopolies (PM), Enterprise Names (εν), Enterprise Marks (εμ), and MPR Patents (π). So far, two books with valid individual International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN) have been published with the MPR’s Print Monopoly (PM) standard, including the book, The Fifth World: Micronationalism on Steroids.

This policy towards “Countries of Particular Concern” (CPC) is the only policy in which the MPR is practically in sync with the policy of a foreign government. The MPR is not a governmental organisation, but a nongovernmental organisation with special functions.

Convention of Fourth and Fifth World Nations

In November 2006, Greenwood Press published Declarations of Independence: Encyclopedia of American Autonomous and Secessionist Movements. In September 2006, Lonely Planet Publications published Micronations: The Lonely Planet Guide to Home-Made Nations. The are too many books out there about the Fourth and Fifth World written by authors living solely in the Official World (First, Second, and Third World).

In August 2003, the 7th Amorph! — whatever that is — performance art biennale hosted a first Summit of Micronations in Helsinki. The Principality of Sealand, Ladonia, NSK-State, Kingdoms of Elgaland & Vargaland (KREV), the Transnational Republic (TR) and State of Sabotage (SoS) joined the summit. The organisation that sponsored or co-sponsored the event — YKON.org — followed-up in 2006 with a M8 Summit, a “fictional summit of micronations” in Singapore. Get it? A fictional summit of nations that are normally viewed as fictional by the mass media! Later that year, they organised an exhibition at the MOCA in Taipei which was supposed to encourage the Taiwanese government and people to start relations with a Group of Ten micronations, and this description, from the aforementioned self-defined “advocacy group”, was little more than hoopla for the launching of the exhibition, which probably had little if anything to do with micronations or micronationalism. Now the same organisation aims to organise a second Summit of Micronations for 2013 in Brioni, Croatia. It seems that not only authors and publishers are making a good living with Fourth and Fifth World nation themes, but also some non-profit art groups that are hardly the alternative national/micronational “advocacy groups” they claim to be.

The Micronational Professional Registry, a true Fourth and Fifth World organisation, would like organise with member nations and non-member nations a true Convention of Fourth and Fifth World Nations.

Fourth World nations are larger nations without recognised states, usually secessionist movements, but not always.

Fifth World nations are mature micronations without recognised states.

Is your nation or micronation interested? Are you interested in participating for your nation or micronation?

The event will probably be organised for some time in 2010, and somewhere in North America. I would not outright exclude organising the first Convention of Fourth and World World Nations in a large metropolitan area like New York or Washington.

If you are at least interested, please contact the “Micronational Professional Registry” at the page below. Thank you for your support.

HOCA ceases to serve Vietnam

Yesterday the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) took Vietnam off the list of recognised nation-states.

The decision by the MPR to give Vietnam a natio non grata status came as a result of the nth consecutive piece of news which demonstrates that Vietnam has laws on paper that are not worth the paper on which they are printed.

While the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) was concerned about human rights violations, particularly religious discrimination towards Christians and towards ethnic minorities in remote areas, the MPR was also forced to take Vietnam off its list of recognised nation-states for more practical reasons. If laws on paper are not sufficient to uphold the law at all times in Vietnam, and authorities can arbitrarily follow the law one day, and violate the same law on the next, this means that also diplomas and degrees issued by schools and universities in Vietnam are entirely suspect from a professional perspective.

In support of MPR’s determinination, the Hands of Change Association (HOCA), MPR Member 006024, has also decided it will no longer serve Vietnam. The HOCA representative in Thailand, who has also served Vietnam in the past, has been notified by email to stop her work with Vietnam.

The Hands of Change Association (HOCA), an independent Arizona non-profit corporation, is a secretarial service that serves the interests and needs of the Sovereign Military-religious Order of Teutonic Knights Templars of the Church of Nobles of Present-day Brethren (Germanite Brethren), and this church owns the Royal Institute of the Americas high school and William Cullen Bryant University. HOCA’s decision, therefore, means Vietnamese students will no longer able able to earn General Equivalency diplomas or degrees through the schools owned by the Church of Nobles of Present-day Brethren (Germanite Brethren).

It is significant to note that the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) doesn’t require its members to follow or even acknowledge its decisions, yet yesterday’s MPR decision to stop recognising Vietnam, and the justification provided for this determination, were sufficient for the Hands of Change Association (HOCA) to also cease serving Vietnam.
