NZCPR Weekly: Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Dear NZCPR Reader,   

This week we outline the controversial background to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and explain the implications of the Government’s decision to implement it, our NZCPR Guest Commentator Brian Giesbrecht explains why Canada’s decision to adopt UNDRIP as law will be such a disaster, and our poll asks whether you agree with the Government that UNDRIP should be ‘implemented’.

The declaration was drafted by Cuba as a means of provoking racial disharmony in Western New World countries. New Zealand rightly refused to sign it for several years until John Key gave Sharples the go-ahead without any public consultation or forewarning. This will create trouble for years to come, along with National's Marine and Coastal Areas Act. No wonder Key high-tailed it before the proverbial hit the fan. And now we also have that other "non-binding" agreement to deal with, the UN Migration Compact, thanks to Winston.
