About the seminar

The obligation to consult and get the consent of indigenous peoples, before interfering in their lives and territories, is increasingly recognized in international fora and different national contexts. In many places, formal protocols and bodies are being proposed or put in place in order to facilitate such consultations. However, there are still many actors – state agencies as well as private corporations – who keep rejecting, ignoring or paying only superficial attention to the demands for consultations and the relevant procedures.In this seminar, we will learn more about how consultation processes are carried out, or not, in different countries in Indigenous/Latin America.

How can consultations become events that lead to mutual understanding and binding agreements?
Why can consultations by one or more parties end up being considered as theater only?
What are the main challenges of consultation processes today?
What do successful consultations look like?
These topics and questions are highly relevant also beyond Indigenous/Latin America as they resonate strongly also in Sami/Nordic contexts.

De oorspronkelijk bewoners van Argentinië, de Mapuche houden een optocht van 800 kilometers, vanaf de Andes gebergte tot aan de kust. De optocht begint in Bariloche en zal eindigen in Viedma op maandag 24 april.

Met deze optocht willen zij aandacht vragen voor het land verlies en de invoering van een nieuwe land wet: “Nuevo código de tierras”. De Mapuche vrezen dat hierdoor hun land en omgeving wordt vernietigd.

No al nuevo codigo de tierras

Hugo Aranea van het Consejo Asesor Indígena (CAI):
“Deze nieuwe wet bedreigt niet alleen de gebieden van de Mapuche en de Tehuelche maar ook de samenleving als geheel”. Hier wordt gedacht aan fracking, mijnbouw en olieprojecten, evenals de bouw van faciliteiten voor massatoerisme volgens Aranea.

Onder het motto “We zijn Levend, daarom marcheren wij” willen de Mapuche bij aankomst een petitie aanbieden aan de regionale overheid waarbij de volledige erkenning van het Mapuche-volk wordt geëist, tevens het terug draaien van de wetgeving die de regering net naar het Congres heeft gestuurd zonder de Mapuche hierbij te betrekken of te informeren.

Comunicamos a nuestro pueblo Nacion Mapuche, a las comunidades en lucha y resistencia, organizaciones sociales mapuche y no mapuche, estudiantes y simpatizantes de nuestra causa, lo siguiente:

Que a partir de hoy 2 de agosto del 2016, hemos decidido iniciar una huelga de hambre líquida, con el fin de exigir nuestro derecho a un encarcelamiento distinto, que se materializa en un dormitorio para imputados mapuche y no mapuche, que sean imputados por causas mapuche, amparado en el convenio 169 de la OIT en el artículo número 10 de políticas generales.

Apoyamos a los presos políticos mapuche de la cárcel de Lebu, en su exigencia a un encarcelamiento distinto y además invitamos a los distintos presos políticos mapuche en las diferentes cárceles, a exigir sus derechos.

Llamamos a las distintas comunidades en resistencia del WallMapu, a solidarizar en sus distintas formas de lucha.
