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.
The petition, in English, Spanish, French and Russian is online at:
