Mt. Rushmore Site Should Be Returned To Indigenous Native American Tribes, U.N. Official Says … James Anaya, a U.N. special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous people, completed a fact-finding mission on Friday that included meetings with a number of Native American tribal leaders as well as White House officials. His investigation led him to suggest that the United States take additional steps to repair the nation’s legacy of oppression against Native Americans. He’ll officially propose the plan in an upcoming report. – Agency France-Presse (5/5/12)
Africa: First Peoples Worldwide At the UN Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues … First Peoples Worldwide, an Indigenous rights advocacy organization, will co-sponsor a workshop at the Eleventh Session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, taking place this May 7-18 at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. – AllAfrica, UN-Cosponsor Press Release (5/7/12)
Infowars’ editors recently posted part of an article from the AF-Presse (above) about the UN’s growing interference in the affairs of US Native Americans.
This is a big story. Its evolution should be seen in the context of a UN-cosponsor press release (also above) that a new phase of an elite war against property-rights seems to be ramping up.
The top elites – their programs funded by trillions in money-from-nothing created by the central banks they control – plan these programs meticulously for years, or decades. Then they implement them.
At the very top, the UN is run by global elites that increasingly use its power to inflict full-fledged lawless internationalism around the world – and especially in the West where property rights still exist coherently within a legal framework.
One can see the “ramp up” in the fight against property rights in just the past decade, even in the past seven or so years. While it’s hard to keep up with the UN’s frenetic pace, several obvious programs make what is taking place clear:
• Political Attack: This begins with the overthrow of the Pact of Westphalia that took place in the UN in 2005. The substitute was the so-called R2P – the “responsibility to protect” doctrine – that has been used by NATO and the US to attack numerous Middle Eastern and African countries in the past few years.
• Environmental Attack: This has to do with the expansion of the UN’s Agenda 21, a so-called plan for “sustainable development” having to do with global warming and “carbon capture,” etc. The idea is that the planet must be saved – and property rights are of secondary importance within this larger scheme of things.
• Indigenous Attack: This is a most interesting additional strand to the assault on property rights worldwide aimed at destabilizing the foundations of Western property-culture. It exploits the losses and poverty of indigenous tribal people; within this context, it seeks to USE such peoples’ desperation, not to aid them.
Here’s more from the press UN cosponsor (AllAfrica) press release issued on May 7:
Africa: First Peoples Worldwide At the UN Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues … The UNPFII is a body of the UN that deals specifically with Indigenous peoples’ issues. This year’s theme will be “The Doctrine of Discovery: its enduring impact on Indigenous peoples and the right to redress for past consequences”, which will draw on articles 28 and 37 from the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) …
This year’s Permanent Forum will also cover the rights of Indigenous peoples to food and food security; the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, which will be held in 2014 by the 65th General Assembly of the UN to share perspectives and best practices on the realization of indigenous peoples’ rights; a discussion of UNDRIP; and a dialogue with the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous peoples, James Anaya, and the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The UN has been around some 60 years now but billions of people on the planet still live on a torturous dollar-a-day, while central banks lend and print trillions every year. If those at the top really wanted “food security” for impoverished peoples, there are plenty of ways to accomplish it – and fast. But they don’t.
They are not interested in “helping” or even explaining the current corrupt economic system. They are seemingly only interested in their own agenda of globalist control. And, if anything, they seek depopulation.
Divisiveness and the cultivation of grievances are their stock in trade. When their “expert,” – the UN’s James Anaya – met with tribal leaders throughout the US for 12 days, one could see this agenda on display.
The tour’s putative rationale was to discover how US officials were progressing with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, endorsed by President Barack Obama in December 2010.
Anaya was deliberately provocative in his statement regarding the South Dakota’s Black Hills where US presidents’ granite faces are carved into Mt. Rushmore. Claiming they should be “restored as Native American tribal lands,” he added …
“The sense of loss, alienation and indignity is pervasive throughout Indian country. It is evident that there have still not been adequate measures of reconciliation to overcome the persistent legacies of the history of oppression, and that there is still much healing that needs to be done.”
The idea that UN officials should stick up for “indigenous” peoples is of course laudable – as is most of the admirable rhetoric that issues from the facilities of this most-corrupt of all institutions.
But there is a larger problem involved in such rhetoric, as it is often difficult if not impossible to figure out whom indigenous people REALLY are.
In the US, for instance, Native American leaders are determined to ensure that their claims for first occupancy are never to be questioned. This has resulted in the destruction of fairly clear evidence that there were other groups and ethnicities that occupied what is now North America (and South America, too) before them.
Those who run the UN – the top elites who created it – are apparently most interested in using poor and impoverished people to further break down the social fibers of civil society in order to facilitate one-world globalism.
The attack on property rights continues to expand. This latest round of “indigenous rights” activism should be seen within the larger context of elite priorities.
Certainly, poor, indigenous peoples are entitled to every legal right that has been deliberately stripped from them in modernity (as much as any other group). But having the UN lead this fight is like having wolves lead lambs. The result will no doubt be an even greater shearing.
