HYPU Summer Uni – 25 July – 12 August 2011
We are now starting to plan for the above programme, and would like to ask if you would be willing to support our charity by giving up your valuable time to run a course or workshops on a voluntary basis.
Funding for programmes and projects such as ours is becoming extremely difficult to obtain, over the past year and half, HYPU has had severe financial difficulties, which has resulted in us having to cancel many of the programmes that we hold. We are 100% reliant on fundraising as our only source of income as we are not supported by our local authority or any other government agency despite numerous requests for financial support. Due to the economic downturn many of the funders that support organisations like ours have been reluctant to give and for this reason resulted in us having to cancel many of our programmes. Our situation has become so severe that out of the four programmes we hold annually we have unfortunately only been able to hold one of our programmes during 2010.
As you are well aware The Summer University is a vital part of HYPU’s work, to our greater disappointment, for the first time in our 13 year history we were forced to cancel our 2010 summer programme, which is the biggest and most important of all the programmes we hold. Hackney has a culture of gang violence and youth murders. Police recorded 182 firearm offences between March 2009 and 2010, compared to 141 the year before – putting the borough among the worst in the capital for gun crime, however between all of this turmoil and disaffection, Hackney has some extremely talented young people. – Who were extremely disappointed that there was no summer uni for them and no other alternative in the holiday provision for them to attend.
Therefore we have come to the conclusion that the only way that we can have a summer 2011 programme is to ask that our tutors, organisations, and partners run a workshop or course on a voluntary basis. If you would like to run a session but are unable to give up 15hrs or 10hrs, a week we can be flexible as to how we timetable your course. e.g. two mornings or a one day workshop could be a possibility.
We recognise that this is a lot to ask and if you feel that you are unable to contribute your time we will fully understand. We would be grateful if you could give us an indication if you would like to run a workshop or course for the summer no later than the 28 February 2011.
THE ACLT CHARITY IS IN CRISIS
It is with regret that we have to put up this post, but maybe at the same time this is a good wake up call for the London African-Caribbean community who in my opinion need to regain consciousness, stand-up on their own two feet and come together collectively to support a much-needed organisation like the ACLT – who has carried out some great work in our community. As of the beginning of 2011 they are no longer supported by local government funding due to cuts by the new so-called Con-dem government, and this has devastated their organisation.
Below is a message from the ACLT – THEY NEED YOUR SUPPORT RIGHT NOW!
Thank you to our supporters and dedicated volunteers for their tremendous help and efforts with various fundraising activities over the last year. Like many of you, 2010 was an extremely tough year for us as funding dwindled dramatically despite the hard work to boost income in innovative ways.
Our income comes from small public donations and proactive or reactive fundraising. Therefore we are left in a vulnerable position when charity giving falls. Contrary to public opinion there is a sustained and significant lack of long term investment in our work to support patients and donor recruitment in minority ethnic communities. Ultimately, our closure will put many more lives in serious jeopardy. On their behalf, we must all rise to the challenge and galvanise everyone to take immediate action.
Save the ACLT Charity Appeal
SOS! After our crisis discussions, on 6 January 2011 we launched an urgent charity crisis appeal to raise £80K. We started by emailing all ACLT Volunteers and key media & entertainment contacts to come together and build a strategy. We are encouraged by your initial responses and efforts to kick-start the campaign. This is evolving rapidly as our ‘Crisis’ team develops various ideas and recommendations.
Fight for survival Many are shocked and dismayed at what could happen to patients and their families if the charity folded. Encouragingly, many have already pledged their commitment to stop our closure in March…and beyond.
A promising start. We would like to thank our volunteers and supporters who have donated funds and ideas and have helped spread the word. In the first week, you helped us raise over £7K – that’s about £1K a day! January is a difficult month and donations have slowed down, so we need each and every one of you to help as we have under 70 days left to reach the minimum £80K.
ACLT needs you!
Beverley De-Gale and Orin Lewis, ACLT Co-Founders send an urgent plea to all ACLT supporters to take action for any financial assistance and support you can give.
5 steps to ‘Help Save the ACLT’
Our priority is to spread the word and raise as much as we can, as soon as we can.
* UK TAX PAYERS PLEASE REMEMBER TO GIFT AID YOUR DONATION *If 5,000 people gave £5 a month for 3 months = £75,000 + Gift Aid = £96,000!
WHEN YOU GIVE £1 – WE GET AN EXTRA 28p BACK FROM THE TAX MAN AT NO COST TO YOU!!
*Secure online donation at www.aclt.org

TIME 4 WORLD PEACE
A good friend of mine called Timothy John-Baptiste who is a teacher & mentor works with young people here in London he has come up with a great new concept after growing tired of all the trouble, violence, wickedness and selfishness in the world.
He has created, developed and instilled a planned worldwide monthly trigger action to get as many people as possible to respect 4 o’clock each day as “Time For World Peace”.
Everyone he has come into contact with especially young people has been instilled with his philosophy for world peace for at least 1 hour a day and how to make his trademark Peace sign using three fingers (a new way for some young people to make a positive hand-sign instead of negative gang-signs).
As a matter of fact Timothy has managed to get young people and adults alike to respect 4.00 pm daily as a time for thought & action regarding making Peace, regardless of if its with a family member, friend, enemy, lover, someone from a different nationalities, religious background etc – You know what I mean!
So why don’t you make a concerted effort to make PEACE with someone at 4.00 pm tomorrow or the day after or even the day after that – make an effort to make peace with someone – Please!
ITS TIME 4 WORLD PEACE!
Go checkout www.timeforworldpeace.com
Here’s a sample of his monthly newsletter below
I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas break and remembering to make Peace in your world at 4 o’clock each day.
I must start this newsletter in remembrance of my father Alexander John-Baptiste who left us on Sunday 19th December 2011 at the age eighty-six. I was in the hospital with family members and witnessed him leave this world to rest in peace. My father was at peace with all in his world and loved his family and friends. He was respected by all around him and had a natural way of communicating with every person that he met.
God bless you my beloved dad, you will be remembered every day, especially at 4 o’clock. May your spirit rest in PEACE.
This picture was taken in October 2010 whilst he was in hospital. I’m so glad that I asked him to pose using our peace sign. I have this photo on my phone wallpaper on use it on my Facebook profile picture.
A discussion with the hospital registrar to collect his death certificate made me realise how many of us are not at peace with family members. Please make peace with your loved ones on 4th January 2011 at 4 o’clock. You can make a difference and create a peaceful start to the year before it’s too late.
T4WP Website: Feel free to visit the site and share with others what you have done to create peace in your world. Select Testimonials and go to – add a comment.
I still continue to make peace in my world and have been trying to contact a mentee who I worked with. Her number has changed so I will have to write a letter to enquire about her well-being.
Schools, Colleges and Universities
I continue to promote the 4 o’clock make peace message at a local secondary school and found this to be suitable to resolve conflict amongst the students. I also use the concept of making peace during internal exclusion classes, restorative justice sessions and with students involved in negative behaviour. I have been given the opportunity to expand T4WP further by adding key values to posters, which will be used within a new unit at the school.
Some students are interested in becoming ambassadors for their own countries and using Facebook as a means of promoting T4WP. We have students from Croatia, Iraq, Iran and many others countries based at the school that would like their world’s to be at peace.
Work in the community
I have managed to make contact with several organisations that wish to meet and discuss how T4WP can be used in the community. This includes church groups, British Transport Police and a manager for a national educational program.
A young lady I met through a personal development-training course has contacted me about raising the awareness of Love, Peace and Unity. She wishes to do this by sharing different rice dishes from around the world with families and communities. The team have agreed for this to take place on the 4th March 2011 to align with Time 4 World Peace. I will forward details in the near future to support this initiative.
The website is: www.time4worldpeace.com
Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/TIME-4-WORLD-PEACE/291325180007?ref=mf
I shared T4WP with a taxi driver from Romania called Angel. Initially he was negative about how this would create peace with all the evildoers in the world. I said that these people would be gone in years to come and it was up to us to teach future generations to make peace in their worlds. I left him with a smile and asked that he remember T4WP at 4 o’clock.
Just before Christmas I met an eighty-two year man called Les in a queue at Tesco’s. Where we waited for over an hour to be served. When it was my turn to be served, I lifted his shopping basket from the floor and said that it was my pleasure for him to go first. Les was deeply appreciative and said that he lived his life doing good deeds for others and knew that I would be rewarded in the future. I didn’t mention T4WP but promised to mention him in my campaign newsletter.

~ Peace cannot be achieved through violence; it can only be attained through understanding. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson …

~ It is coming, slowly but surely- all it takes is love and compassion- and maybe a note to some world leaders. We all have a voice and we WILL be heard! Peace
~ I posted on my Facebook page something about what is Peace to me, in the same hope and inspiration that Tim has – that all we need to know is within us all, and sharing these things about ourselves is the first step in the process of that ultimate global win-win situation of Peace for humanity. Thank you Tim for your Stand, your Inspiration, your Time and Attention, your Passion, Communication, and Love for us all.

Just a quick reminder that HIC are showing Michael Moore’s excellent film – “Capitalism – A Love Story” this Thursday. That’s THURSDAY 9th SEPTEMBER.
Doors open at 7pm. The film will start about 7.15pm. Normal prices, which hasn’t increased since we started 4 years ago!
The film raises some important questions especially in the present climate of cuts, cuts, cuts, as well as being just a bloody good film. We have booked the venue for a little longer this month, so we have a space for discussion / questions and answer session afterwards. We will have a few questions ourselves for people to look at before the film, to get us all thinking about the issue and what (if anything) we would like to discuss at the end.
For anybody who hasn’t been before, these discussions are very relaxed, and you don’t have to say anything unless you want to. In fact, if you want, you don’t have to stay for this part of the evening. But most people do as it’s interesting hearing what other people feel about the film and the issues raised.
So, hopefully see loads of you there this Thursday – especially as it’s our first film since July, so you must all be dying to get out the house and to the HIC cinema again!!!
Details of venue and other information is on our website (www.haringey.org.uk/hic/)
CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY
2009, USA, 127 MINS. DIRECTOR, MICHAEL MOORE
Humanity will not be happy until the last bureaucrat is hung with the guts of the last capitalist. Situationist Slogan, Paris, 1968.
The depths to which the venal running dogs of capitalism will sink in the quest for profit and ‘growth’ are almost beyond parody. The total corruption of greedy bankers, corporations and mercenary politicians and the system they represent, has become so commonplace that it is difficult to be shocked anymore. Even so, in “Capitalism: A Love Story” Michael Moore manages to pull back the curtain even further on this sordid (ongoing) episode in human history to reveal the insidious role it has played in the destruction of peoples lives, communities and environments.
A relatively few rich bankers, bosses and politicians have made a global economic and environmental mess and now the many are being asked to pick up the bill via cuts in education, health-care provision, social housing, social services and jobs. The film does however, highlight the common-sense benefits of workers co-operatives that possibly point to a more hopeful future – the long overdue collectivisation of industry and land anybody?
Kush is looking for voluntary members of staff to assist at Kush Film Club Screenings currently taking place at The Manor Club, 277 Seven Sisters rd, London, N4 2DE.

Gain a basic foundation in Film Marketing & PR, Learn the pitfalls of the UK film industry plus lots more.
It is hoped that we can encourage and train more young people to get into the field of Film Marketing & Exhibition and some of these will eventually take over the running of the Kush Film Club or start new branches themselves stemming from the foundations we have laid over the last 12 years.
Its time for a new generation to take over!

Ok this is very off topic but it’s too huge not to be on Kush blog. President Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize after only ten months in office.
For anyone under the age of 40, Obama is the first truly global political living legend that we’ve shared this Earth with. He’s our Gandhi, our Martin Luther King, our Malcolm X. He deserves this prize for all of the reasons that they gave it to him.
Here’s the acceptance speech where Obama speaks of being ‘surprised’ and ‘humbled’ by the decision.
