Background


Resolution A/RES/66/144 of the General Assembly encourages the Working Group to develop a Programme of Action, including a theme, for adoption by the Human Rights Council, with the view to proclaim the Decade for People of African Descent for 2013/2023.

1. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has organized its activities in the framework of the International Year for People of African Descent according to the theme proposed by the Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, namely Recognition, Justice and Development.

Taking into account the international legal framework on the elimination of racial discrimination and the recommendations made by several human rights mechanisms* for the protection and promotion of the rights of people of African descent, please identify priority areas for the Decade for People of African Descent.

 

3. Give examples of national measures which have proven to be effective in improving the enjoyment of the rights of people of African descent and the fight against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

 

4. Please advise on national measures and action-oriented activities that your organization/institution is planning to undertake or will be ready to implement in the framework of the International Decade for People of African Descent,

1. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has organized its activities in the framework of the International Year for People of African Descent according to the theme proposed by the Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, namely Recognition, Justice and Development.

In your view, do these three elements, which are equally important and mutually reinforcing, provide sufficient coverage to be adopted as the theme for the Decade for People of African Descent?

Yes, the three elements are sufficent, however the emphasis regarding the three elements should be inverted to reflect,

Self recognition,

Self justice and

Self development.

Would you propose any other theme for the Decade for People of African Descent?

Move away from victimhood and move toward Self Empowerment through knowledge, Rights are from our Creator, they will never come from mankind...mankind ie, Gov, institutions, etc. make declaration, treaties give privledges and rarely live up to their promise....

2. Taking into account the international legal framework on the elimination of racial discrimination and the recommendations made by several human rights mechanisms* for the protection and promotion of the rights of people of African descent, please identify priority areas for the Decade for People of African Descent.

Priority areas:

UNDERSTANDING THE REAL PROBLEM IS NOT RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, IT IS

AFRICAN GENOCIDE WORLD WIDE,

FOR A UNDERSTANDING HOW IT IS IMPLEMENTED IN SOME SOCIETIES

PLEASE

3. Give examples of national measures which have proven to be effective in improving the enjoyment of the rights of people of African descent and the fight against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

see below (#4)

4. Please advise on "national measures" and action-oriented activities that your organization/institution is planning to undertake or will be ready to implement in the framework of the International Decade for People of African Descent,

"National" measures are based on national myths that are deceptive, they are perpetuated by societies that are very influential (brute force) in the world and it is time the truth be recognized. The concept of "Nations" is a European invention, for the benefit of Europeans, today the idea of Nations is being super ceded by Globalization for the benefit of Europeans.
