Ethnic Cleansing Continues...

Ten years ago today, 13 Sept 2007, the United Nations adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Against 144 nations in favor, standing apart were Australia, Canada, New Zealand & the USA. Each now supports the non-binding Declaration, but hasn't ratified the stronger ILO Treaty 169, the Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention (nor have others such as Japan, Finland & Sweden).

Please recognize ethnic cleansing & genocide are aimed to suppress Native inheritance; Land ownership write-off & reset are unacceptable. Don't validate trespass & theft. Do not continue to reward ethnic cleansing. Let's truly seek peaceful reconciliation.

Thanks to States Ratifying ILO Treaty 169  (link)  Thank You!
