Human Rights of Indigenous People in the video spotlight

The Human Rights Commission is launching a video today at the Iwi Leaders Forum in Waitangi which features iwi leaders reading the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The Declaration reinforces that international human rights standards apply to indigenous peoples.

David Rutherford, Chief Commissioner, says this resource is being made freely available to all New Zealanders but especially to whanau, hapu and iwi in an effort to raise awareness of the Declaration.

“Greater awareness and ownership of the Declaration will help us understand the human rights implicit in the Treaty. Many of the articles in the Declaration intersect with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi”.

A number of iwi, hapu and whanau leaders appear on the Commission’s video reading the articles of the Declaration in Te Reo and English.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>
