Statement of AIPP on the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples 2016: “Protect our rights, our lands!”

Salute from the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact!

Indigenous brothers and sisters,

We proudly celebrate the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples under this year’s Asia regional theme and call to “Protect our rights, our lands!” We urgently need to address the continuing violations of our collective rights as indigenous peoples, particularly our rights to our lands, territories and resources which are the bases of our identity, wellbeing, dignity and collective survival and development. More than 200 million of the estimated 370 million indigenous peoples across the world are in Asia. The majority have no security over their lands and are not legally recognized as indigenous peoples, adding to their further discrimination, marginalization and exclusion.
