        • Ashaninka: Fight for Trees and Rights


          from Adam Spencer Added

          Edgar Sermeño Durand was hiking through the pristine jungles of his native Perú - when a group of indigenous people captured him and his friend. He soon learned their hostility towards outsiders stemmed from their ongoing battle against illegal loggers, who have in the past sent hired killers to force them from their lands to cut down large and valuable trees. Edgar soon convinced the Hawai Nuevo Amanecer community to trust him, and he began learning about their culture and history - and discovering for himself just how dangerous their enemy can be. The courage of the Ashaninka leader Mauro Pio Peño and all the people of the community is an inspiration to all who stand up against injustice.

                • Time to recognise Indigenous Australians in the Constitution


                  from IPS News Added 57 0 0

                  By Neena Bhandari SYDNEY, December 30, 2014 (IPS) — Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders comprise 2.5 per cent (some 548,370) of Australia’s 24-million strong population, but they are not recognised by the Constitution. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Recognition Act 2013 (Act of Recognition) acknowledges indigenous peoples’ unique place as Australia’s first peoples. Recently, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott vowed to “sweat blood” to secure constitutional recognition for indigenous people with the hope of holding a referendum in May 2017, which will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum that approved constitutional amendments relating to Indigenous people. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, who have suffered centuries of discrimination, still face inequality in health, education, income and housing. Many of these challenges are human rights issues and they are at the core of indigenous disadvantage, experts say. Mick Gooda, a descendent of the Gangulu people from the Dawson Valley in central Queensland, is the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner at the Australian Human Rights Commission. The post of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner was created by the federal parliament in 1992, in response to three key inquiries - the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody; a Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission Inquiry into racial hatred; and the Native Title Act – which contributed to raising awareness about the extreme social and economic disadvantage and injustice faced by Indigenous peoples. Gooda has been a strong advocate for the recognition of the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia for over 25 years. He spoke to IPS following the launch of his annual Social Justice and Native Title Report in Sydney.

                      from Edward Briody Added 2 0 0

                      BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND SANCTION (BDS) was a tactic used to achieve basic rights for those living under apartheid conditions in South Africa, With the cooperations of many nations and organization that goal was substantially achieved. BDS is being attempted by the Palestinian people to break free of the apartheid conditions imposed by Israel--supported mainly by the U.S. Palestinians are stateless, movement is controlled by military checkpoints, Jews 'settle' on their land, fruit trees are destroyed, homes bulldozed, incarcerated without charges or tria--l all to continue the ethnic cleansing begun in 1948. BDS is based on ethical and moral standards. They are being terrorized in contrast to the propaganda of Israelis and their powerful supporters in media and Governments.
