The Lubicon Cree: Ongoing human rights violations

    November 21, 2012

    "Adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by the General Assembly was a momentous event, and recent statements of formal support, or movement towards support, by the few States that originally voted against its adoption are to be welcomed. But these achievements cannot be seen as the final or principal goals. Rather, it is the faithful implementation of these rights that must be the focus of concerted attention." - The UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

     

     

    “Reconciliation…requires a more generous and flexible approach that seeks to identify and create common ground. Further, as a general rule, resource extraction should not occur on lands subject to aboriginal claims without… the free, prior and informed consent of the aboriginal peoples concerned.” -- United Nations Special Rapporteur James Anaya at the conclusion of his 2013 official mission to Canada.
