UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: Please speak out!

Within weeks, the United Nations General Assembly must make a decision on the long awaited and urgently needed UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Either the international community will move ahead with final adoption as has been urged by Indigenous peoples and their supporters worldwide, or adoption of the Declaration will once again be delayed due to the demands of a small, yet vocal group of states.

Please take this opportunity to support the Declaration.

More than 14,000 individuals and organizations have already signed a global petition hosted by Amnesty International Canada in support of the Declaration.

If you haven't already done so, please add your name and encourage many
others to do so.

So, I ask that each of you take a few seconds to sign the petition and also pass along. First Nations People still endure the struggle for land that rightfully belongs to us. When they broadcast (if they do), the news stories, we're portrayed as a bunch of "wild Indians", protesting and burning shit up or down. What one must understand is that land is a very sacred thing to Natives as well as it should be to all people, but what one may call an extremist is what we may call as our duty. So, it's actually sad to think that in this day and age, that we still have to come up with a written declaration for human rights.
