    "A systemic ideology of racism ensuring the domination of one group over another continues to impact negatively on the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today," said the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, in a report released in August.

    This is great Bro Clyde
    This group has a three year extended mandate:

    • A few things I know exist that may preclude the United States from actually being held accountable under the UN Committee mandates, recommendations or findings.
    • The United States is a signatory within the United Nations. The United nations can't demand the United States respond to this group's findings because they aren't and have never signed/ joined the United Nations Charter.
    • Now racial disparity and racial terrorism still exist in Europe, where the U.N has some power over them because they are signed on.
    • What this group is doing is great. The are highlighting the situation that needed to brought to forward to the world. The United States have been called on crimes for years.. including every type of war crime.
    • The world court cant do a thing to them because they are signed as a signatory. If they did join.. the penalties would be great from many nations and them signing the incarcerated prisoners within our jails could bring charges for inhuman treatment they receive in prison.
    • I posted some stuff a few years back about them signing on. I will search to find the post.
    • If the same thing is said about Blacks in Europe they could possibly receive compensation immediately because the of U.N Charters.
    • I do hope the UN Committee continue to do this kind of fact finding and pointing out to the world the atrocity.
    One reason the United States never goes to WAR without an Ally like France or Europe is because those countries joined and can truly go to war by notifying the United Nations and suffer no crimes after they mess up another country.

    The United States under U.N charter can only go in behind and in concert with these other countries. They won't join the U.N. because they could be held for past WAR crimes.. as well this new pursuit of the UN Committee

    Submitting information
    In order for a complaint to be assessed, the following information is needed:

    1. Identification of the alleged victim(s).
    2. Identification of the alleged perpetrators of the violation (if known), including substantiated information on all the actors involved, including non-state actors if relevant.
    3. Identification of the person(s) or organization(s) submitting the communication, if different from the victim (this information will be kept confidential).
    4. Date, place and detailed description of the circumstances of the incident(s) or violation. The information submitted can refer to violations that are said to have already occurred, that are ongoing or about to occur.
    Other details pertaining to the specific alleged violation may be required depending on the mandate(s) to which the submission is addressed or relevant.

    Communications that contain abusive language or that are obviously politically motivated are not considered. Communications should not be based solely on media reports.

    ==================
    In 2014, with resolution 27/25, the Human Rights Council further extended the mandate of the Working Group for three years.

    Methods of Work
    In the fulfilment of its mandate, the Working Group:
    ========================
    Mandate
    The Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent was established in 2002 by the Commission on Human Rights resolution 2002/68 (as a Special Procedure). The mandate was subsequently renewed by the Commission on Human Rights and the Human Rights Council in its resolutions (CHR 2003/30, 2008/HRC/RES/9/14, 2011/HRC/RES/18/28, 2014/HRC/RES/27/25).

    In 2008, Human Rights Council resolution 9/14 entrusted the Working Group:

    (a) To study the problems of racial discrimination faced by people of African descent living in the diaspora and, to that end, gather all relevant information from Governments, non-governmental organizations and other relevant sources, including through the holding of public meetings with them;

    (b) To propose measures to ensure full and effective access to the justice system by people of African descent;

    (c) To submit recommendations on the design, implementation and enforcement of effective measures to eliminate racial profiling of people of African descent;

    (d) To make proposals on the elimination of racial discrimination against Africans and people of African descent in all parts of the world;

    (e) To address all the issues concerning the well-being of Africans and people of African descent contained in the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action;

    (f) To elaborate short-, medium- and long-term proposals for the elimination of racial discrimination against people of African descent, bearing in mind the need for close collaboration with international and development institutions and the specialized agencies of the United Nations system to promote the human rights of people of African descent through, inter alia, the following activities:

    (i) Improving the human rights situation of people of African descent by devoting special attention to their needs through, inter alia, the preparation of specific programmes of action;
    (ii) Designing special projects, in collaboration with people of African descent, to support their initiatives at the community level and to facilitate the exchange of information and technical know-how between these populations and experts in these areas;
    (iii) Liaising with financial and developmental institutional and operational programmes and specialized agencies of the United Nations, with a view to contribute to the development programmes intended for people of African descent by allocating additional investments to health systems, education, housing, electricity, drinking water and environmental control measures and promoting equal opportunities in employment, as well as other affirmative or positive measures and strategies within the human rights framework.

    Razor Wire Plantations: Amerika’s Ongoing Addiction to Slavery, Cruelty and Genocide

    Brutality by Design As was the focus of a recent article ((Kevin “Rashid” Johnson, “U.S. Prison Practices would Disgrace A Nation of Savages Texas.
    rashidmod.com


    Slavery doesn’t teach people how to be free. It only dehumanizes, which is why international law to which the U.S. is a signatory outlaws slavery in all its forms.

    “It is fair to say that we have witnessed an evolution in the U.S. from a racial caste system based entirely on exploitation (slavery), to one based largely on subordination (Jim Crow), to one defined by marginalization (mass incarceration). While marginalization may sound far preferable to exploitation, it may prove to be even more dangerous. Extreme marginalization, as we have seen throughout world history, poses the risk of extermination.
    ===========
    Being a signatory to a resolution only means that delegates want to see it put on the floor; it does not indicate sponsorship or support and the signatory has no further obligations. Sponsors are generally the countries who have written the draft document. They are also those countries who not only agree to see the draft resolution be put to a vote but also commit themselves to supporting it. Signatories on the other hand only wish to see the draft resolution debated and so do not commit themselves to necessarily supporting it. For instance, you might be against a draft resolution but might want to see it debated to be able to convince other countries to find new avenues of compromise.

    You are exactly right HODEE, the US has signed only a few HR treaties, but the problem, is that they haven't ratified the central ones that would make them accountable for reparatory justice owed African-Americans for the slave trade.

    I find your proposal below on point:

    We could write them as a group and ask what influence they truly have over the United States within the United Nations?
    Questions based on....our concerns of the mandate and file them under the ...
    Communications Procedure!

    http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/Racism/WGAfricanDescent/Pages/Communications.aspx


    However, the most viable group to perform such resolution would be the Black Lives Matter/Movement for Black Lives, since they have adopted Reparations as a key agenda item:



    The above information is here:
    https://destee.com/threads/new-webs...y-to-people-of-color.87333/page-2#post-962311


    In addition, the Black Lives Matter folk should be guided by this recommendation from the UN Group/Panel, found in the link of the first Thread I posted on this, below:

    The US should consider reparations to A-A descendants of slavery, a UN working group said Friday

    "What stands out for me is the lack of acknowledgement of the slave trade," said Ricardo A. Sunga III, who lives in the Philippines.

    The working group suggests monuments, markers and memorials be erected in the United States to facilitate dialogue, and "past injustices and crimes against African-Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice."
    http://www.usnews.com/news/politics...oup-suggests-us-work-on-racial-reconciliation


    So, if Black Lives Matter are serious about Reparations, they should be all on top of what the UN Panel is doing and what they have recommended. Otherwise, we only have Conyers and HR 40, working for the cause:

    Rep. John Conyers re-introduces H.R. 40 on reparations for slavery and discrimination

    Glad you found this, I also read the OP...

    This verifies what I said to you in my previous post about the US cherry picking HR treaties it chooses to sign, and then it fails to ratify pertinent treaties relative to reparatory justice deemed by the UN for African-Americans, based on reasons you've espoused.

    Again, we've got work to do on acquiring reparatory justice, which is to say, getting the Bad Check made good with Reparations deserved and owed.

    Since the US government has apologize for Slavery, we must now assist Conyers in his efforts with H.R. 40, by becoming politically involved through the Black Lives Matter movement, and the Movement for Black Lives agenda to push Congress toward adopting the UN's report.

    At some point, I plan on contacting (via "white paper") the three (3) sisters that started Black Lives Matter to see what steps they are taking toward achieving the goal of Reparations.

    Nevertheless, its a forgone conclusion that we must start selecting(voting) only for those representatives that can embrace reparatory justice for Black folk in America.
