During this online panel, the GHRD will discuss the right to self-determination. The panel provides a forum for diverse panellists from all over the globe, who will address questions such as: What does the right to self-determination entail? What kind of impact does the right of self-determination have on indigenous communities? What steps should be taken by internal and external factors to strengthen this right? While the main focus lies on the indigenous communities of the Amazon, the panel will also touch upon indigenous communities in other geographical areas and their right to self-determination.
Tomorrow, Wednesday 23th of September 2021, a protest will be held in Geneva initiated by the World Sindhi Congress. The World Sindhi Congress is a human rights education and advocacy organization for the Sindh and Sindhi’s. The Sindhi community is native to the Sindh Province in Pakistan. The Sindhi community is experiencing gross violations of their human rights such as enforced disappearance, persecution, forced confession, theft of jobs, and extrajudicial killings. Furthermore, is Sindhi’s lands being usurped from resources and occupied. All of this is to silence the Sindhi’s voices and slowly converse the Sindhi’s into a minority group in their motherland.
A protest will be held to fight against this injustice. This protest will occur tomorrow, Wednesday 23th of September 2021, from 12.00 till 13.00 before the Palace of Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
