Another UN "Rights Declaration" Tearing at the Fabric of the West

The enemy UN has been busy passing another declaration that overrules the laws of the nation states. Well, at least those who don't consider the UN a joke. Now the UN says that all the member states must give all these separate rights for indigenous people in those nations.

"Therefore, existing and future laws, policies and programs of indigenous peoples will have to be redesigned and shaped to be consistent with this standard" said Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, chairman of the U.N. Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, said the declaration "sets the minimum international standards for the protection and promotion of the rights of indigenous peoples."

And what would those 'standards' be?...their right to maintain their own institutions, cultures and spiritual traditions. It also establishes standards to combat discrimination and marginalization and eliminate human rights violations against them. So, separate institutions, like Sharia? like polygamy? Who is indigenous anyway? I'm sure that Egypt will give the Copts all those rights, they were in Egypt long before the Muslims? This is all part of the 'plan.' The UN is a sewer filled with parasites and cancers. Attacking Western civilization, passing 'international declarations' that the democratic countries, in their stupidity, actually try to conform to while the Muslims and the dictators get a pass.

Fortunately it doesn't have the force of law. But it's that tearing, that constant wearing down of the Western sovereignty that is part of the plan.

The US must get out of the UN.



UN adopts declaration on rights for indigenous peoples worldwide
The Associated PressPublished: September 13, 2007


UNITED NATIONS: The U.N. General Assembly adopted a declaration Thursday that provides for rights of native peoples worldwide despite objections from the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, who argued that it was incompatible with existing laws.

The declaration affirms the equality of the more than 370 million indigenous peoples and their right to maintain their own institutions, cultures and spiritual traditions. It also establishes standards to combat discrimination and marginalization and eliminate human rights violations against them.

The U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples was approved by the Human Rights Council in Geneva in June 2006 and sent to the 192-member General Assembly for adoption. The assembly put off final approval in December but pledged to vote before the end of its current session next week.

The declaration, which is not legally binding, was approved by a vote of 143-4, with 11 abstentions.

"This marks a historic moment when U.N. member states and indigenous peoples have reconciled with their painful histories and are resolved to move forward together on the path of human rights, justice and development for all," Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokeswoman, Michele Montas, said.


The declaration, which was approved after more than 20 years of deliberation, calls on states to prevent or redress the forced migration of indigenous peoples, the seizure of their land or their forced integration into other cultures. It also grants indigenous groups control over their religious and cultural sites and the right to manage their own education systems, including teaching in their own languages.

The opponents and many of the countries that abstained said they wanted to work toward a solution, but they took exception to several key parts of the declaration, which they said would give indigenous peoples too many rights and clash with existing national laws.

Several detractors also warned that the declaration set a poor precedent, calling the text confusing and unclear.

"We're not standing against the issue," said Benjamin Chang, a spokesman for the U.S. Mission to the U.N. "We want one that is universal in its scope and can be implemented. What was done today is not clear. The way it stands now is subject to multiple interpretations and doesn't establish a clear universal principal."

Australia's U.N. Ambassador Robert Hill said the declaration failed to meet standards "that would be universally accepted, observed and upheld." He said "Australia continues to have many concerns with the text."

The U.S. and Australia said sponsors excluded them from negotiations where agreement was reached on the amended text.

Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, chairman of the U.N. Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, said the declaration "sets the minimum international standards for the protection and promotion of the rights of indigenous peoples."

"Therefore, existing and future laws, policies and programs of indigenous peoples will have to be redesigned and shaped to be consistent with this standard," she said.

Tauli-Corpuz said the declaration was "a major victory" for the United Nations in establishing international human rights standards, but she said the real test will be whether countries implement it.

In 1982, the Working Group on Indigenous Peoples was formed, and three years later they started work on a declaration that was not completed until 1993. The Commission on Human Rights then set up its own working group and has been reviewing the agreement annually since. Would that be the one headed by Cuba and Syria and Iran and other Muslim jihadist nations.......?
