Australia adopts UN Indigenous declaration.


Indigenous Affairs Minister Jenny Macklin says the Government's support for the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Indigenous Peoples will "reset" the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
The Government has officially adopted the declaration at a ceremony in Parliament House, reversing the decision of the previous Government who voted against it in 2007.
The declaration, which was signed by all but four countries, contains 46 articles which outline Indigenous people's rights in international law, but it is not legally binding and cannot override domestic law. Ms Macklin says the move is an important step towards closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians."Today Australia joins the international community to affirm the aspirations of all Indigenous peoples," she said.
But she has acknowledged that the process to improve health and education for Indigenous people may take time. "Relationships will be tested and they will evolve but the declaration gives us new impetus to work together in trust and good faith," she said.
"Today Australia takes another step to make sure the flawed policies of the past will never be revisited."
Speaking at the event, Indigenous leader Professor Mick Dodson said the next step was to now meet the standards set out in the declaration. "The value of human rights is not in their existence, it's in their implementation," he said. "That is the challenge for the world with this declaration. The standards have been set, it is up to us to meet them."

The Opposition says the declaration is a flawed document and has described the Government's decision as a "grave error".




GOBIERNO DE AUSTRALIA ADOPTA LA DECLARACION DE LOS PUEBLOS INDIGENAS aprobada por la Asamblea de las Naciones Unidas el 13 de setiembre del año 207.
El Dr. Miguel Ibáñez de Hábitat Pro ONG miembro del Comité de la Década de de los Pueblos Indígenas de las Naciones Unidas se sintió complacido por esta noticia que es un paso importante para elevar el estándar de los derechos humanos en el mundo, y dijo que el Comité había dirigido una carta conminando al Gobierno de Kevin Rud el cumplimiento de sus promesas. Como fue de conocimiento internacional Australia fue uno de los estados que no adoptó la Declaración conjuntamente con Canadá, Nueva Zelanda y los Estados Unidos
En la asamblea inaugural del Gobierno del Primer Ministro Kevin Rudd pidió perdón a los pueblos indígenas por las atrocidades cometidas por el gobierno de Australia contra los pueblos indígenas hecho que fue llamado la generación perdida donde miles de familia fueron obligadas a separarse y ser adoptadas por familias de adinerados colonos. La oposición derechista del actual gobierno, la mayoría representante de las corporaciones financieras y depredadoras de los territorios indígenas, ha declarado que esta adopción significa un grave error. Sin embargo para todos los pueblos indígenas del planeta y organizaciones democráticas es motivo de regocijo por que asegura un paso mas para la conquista de los derechos de los pueblos indígenas.
