A.P.N.UA Partnership For National Unity (A.P.N.U), on the occasion of Amerindian Heritage Month 2011,China Jerseys Wholesale, takes this opportunity to extend to all Indigenous brothers and sisters throughout Guyana a peaceful and joyous month of celebration of their culture, their way of life and achievements.The preamble to the Constitution of Guyana states that “We, the Guyanese people value the special place in our nation of the Indigenous Peoples and recognize their rights as citizens to land and security and to their promulgation of policies for their development.”A.P.N.U firmly believes that the full protection of the rights of the Indigenous Peoples in the Constitution and in other laws is the bedrock for the realization of their economic, social, cultural and political aspirations within Guyanese society.A.P.N.U recognizes that all post-independence governments have made improvements to the laws and situation pertaining to the indigenous peoples of Guyana but there is still significant progress to be made in this regard. Since independence, in 1966, international law governing the rights of Indigenous Peoples has advanced immeasurably and Guyana, as a member of the international community and in adherence to its treaty obligations under international law, has more than a moral obligation to the first peoples of Guyana, to ensure that the national legal framework meets acceptable standards for the protection of their rights.Since 2006, the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) made a number of recommendations to Guyana following the Committee’s consideration of the Initial to the 14th periodic reports of Guyana. Among these recommendations, the Committee urged Guyana;“to recognize and protect the rights of all indigenous communities to own, develop and control the lands which they traditionally occupy, including water and subsoil resources, and to safeguard their right to use lands not exclusively occupied by them, to which they have traditionally had access for their subsistence, in accordance with the Committee’s General Recommendation No. 23 and taking into account ILO Convention No. 169 on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples.”The Indigenous Peoples of Guyana have consistently advocated for their right to water and subsurface resources to be included in the land titles granted to them. As it is, the State of Guyana persists in disregarding its treaty obligations under international law to fully protect the water and subsurface resource rights of the Indigenous Peoples.The Indigenous Peoples in Guyana, and all over the world, have maintained that the protection of their right to their lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used and acquired, is not only fundamental to the realization of their economic, social, cultural and political rights but to their very survival. The protection of the right to lands, territories and resources cannot be overstated.The Indigenous Peoples, similar to all other peoples, aspire to fulfill their true potential and to achieve excellence in any meaningful pursuit of life and, despite the many challenges and difficulties faced, some have achieved distinction in their chosen field of endeavor.However, the full potential of the Indigenous Peoples of Guyana is still to be realized and must be realized; for the achievements of our Indigenous brothers and sisters can only help to make Guyana a brighter and better place for all.A Happy Amerindian Heritage Month 2011 to all!  *****************************THE PNCRThe People’s National Congress Reform congratulates our Amerindian Sisters and Brothers as they celebrate their heritage, during the month of September,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, and wishes them a happy Heritage Month 2011.During this month the Indigenous Peoples of Guyana will showcase their expertise in cuisine, craftsmanship and various other art forms.The PNCR advocates, that these activities that are related to the promotion of the Indigenous Peoples’ culture should not be only for one month of the year but should be continuous throughout the year.The PNCR hopes that The American Declaration of the Rights of the Indigenous Peoples would be completed at the Summit of the Americas in Columbia in 2012. This would truly be an achievement for us all to celebrate.The PNCR encourages the Indigenous Peoples of this land, as individuals, at the village levels, or as Indigenous NGOs, to become more directly involved in the planning and executing of The September Month Celebrations, rather than allowing it to be manipulated centrally by the Administration.In Guyana, while the Government officials, in Georgetown, make glowing statements about the benefits and privileges that the Indigenous Peoples now enjoy,Wholesale Jerseys Online, at the level of the communities it is a different reality.
