c.c. Indigenous Human Rights United Nations
Campaigning for Indigenous Children's Rights Canada under United Nations Convention on Children's Rights and the conceptuality of the Institution of Family in Canada; we engage in solutions to find common ground between two different cultures and perceptions of family.
"The international community recognizes this duality of rights. The 1993 Vienna Declaration of the World Conference on Human Rights 25 affirmed:
All human rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent and interrelated. The international community must treat human rights globally in a fair and equal manner, on the same footing, and with the same emphasis. The Declaration goes on to recognize "the inherent dignity and the unique contribution of indigenous people to the development and plurality of society" and to specify that: Considering the importance of the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous people, and the contribution of such promotion and protection to the political and social stability of the States in which such people live, States should, in accordance with international law, take concerted positive steps to ensure respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous people, on the basis of equality and non-discrimination, and recognize the value and diversity of their distinct identities, cultures and social organization." For generations First Nations, Inuit and Metis children have been removed by Child Protective Services, Child Welfare and Family Services and Children's Aid Society across Canada without cause. We seek to end assimilation and discrimination within Children and Family Services of Canada under Section 67 of the Human Rights Act. Aboriginal Rights and Human Rights Indigenous children have the right to remain within their families, communities and nation. Indigenous children have the right to be culturally safe and protected from any form of assimilation under policy and legislation.
