Indigenous organisations announce fresh agitation

Date Thursday, May 10th 2007, 9:38 PM Icon 35 Date 2

"Indigenous organisations announce fresh agitation"

Stating that the last three rounds of talks with the government have become fruitless, five indigenous organisations have announced a fresh round of agitation beginning May 17.

The Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NFIN), Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities Students, Indigenous Nationalities Joint Struggle Committee, National Indigenous Nationalities Women Federation and Nepal Indigenous Nationalities Youth Association have joined hands to announce the programmes of agitation including nationwide Nepal bandh on June 1, 10 and 11.

At a press meet on Thursday, NFIN president Pasang Sherpa said that talks with the government will also be continued alongside the agitation.

As per their agitation programme, nationwide rallies will be held on May 17; sit-in protest will be held at Maitighar Mandala on May 24 and 25 and torch rallies on May 31.

"Despite holding a series of talks with the government, we are not yet confident that it will lead to fulfillment of our demands," said Dr. Om Gurung, senior leader of NFIN. He added, "The agitation will be stopped if we get any indication that our demands will be addressed."

Major demands of indigenous community include federal restructuring of the state based on ethnic lines equipped with right to self determination and proportional representation based election system, among others.

We must build kirati political party and

Date Wednesday, May 16th 2007, 5:53 PM

I truly agree. Definately kirat people need Kirati Political Leaders in kirat own political party.

Kirati people will be supress, dominate and discriminate by other race or Chuchey people of Nepal and we can not UP-LIFT our social life UNLESS WE HAVE UNITY, VOICE, POLITICAL POWER AND GOVERNMENTAL POWER.

We must not depand on other Bahuns and Chettris Chuchey people of Nepal.

They already proved that they can not do Equal and Truly democratic Nepal. They already proved that these Chuchey people can not trust. They already proved that they are NOT responsible, accountable, trustworthy, nationalist, patriotic and vision for future of Nepalese and Nepal. Bahuns and Chettris are the 95% responsible to ruin this country and backward in development. They ruined Democracy, Peace, Developments projects, Human Rights and Civil Rights in this country.

Without our own political leaders and party, we can not do nothing in this country.

Janajati leaders want commission on indigenous

Date Thursday, May 10th 2007, 9:41 PM

"Janajati leaders want commission on indigenous people"

Speaking at a national seminar in the capital Janajati leaders and human rights activists today stressed the need to establish a National Commission on Indigenous Peoples.

Chief of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) Lena Sundh stated that two United Nations experts and members of the Sub-Commission, who recently visited Nepal, had suggested that it would be useful for leaders of indigenous communities to look beyond the upcoming electoral process and consider more broadly possible strategies to ensure that the rights of indigenous peoples - not only civil and political rights - are recognisd respected in the future Nepal. She quoted the experts to have said that one such strategy would be the formation of national institution on indigenous peoples.

Director of Asian Centre for Human Rights Suhas Chakma said, "The National Foundation for Development of Indigenous Nationalities (NFDIN) has failed to address the concerns of the indigenous peoples because of its failure to take rights based approach.”

He added that unlike the National Human Rights Commission and National Dalit Commission, the NFDIN cannot intervene in the case of violations of the rights of indigenous peoples.

"In this critical transition phase, an interim constitution of Nepal has been adopted, amendments to the Interim Constitution have been made and there is no reason as to why further amendments cannot be made to establish a constitutionally empowered National Commission on Indigenous Peoples if the political parties are serious about ensuring the rights of these people," he added.

The seminar adopted a model law on the establishment of a National Commission for Indigenous Peoples, inter alia, to serve as the primary agency to formulate and implement policies and programmes for development of the Janjatis, to monitor, evaluate and make necessary interventions for effective implementation of the programmes by various departments/agencies of the government, to monitor, review, and assess the conditions of indigenous peoples including existing laws and to propose relevant laws, to ensure the enjoyment of the rights of indigenous peoples by intervening in cases of violations of their rights with powers of a civil courts and that the decisions of such a commission can be appealable only before the Supreme Court of Nepal.

The seminar was organised jointly by Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR), Asian Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Network (AITPN) and Kirat Welfare Society (KWS).
