From the United Nations DECLARATION on the RIGHTS of INDIGENOUS PEOPLES.

http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/DRIPS_en.pdf

We can read that:

'Article 3
Indigenous peoples have the right to self-determination. By virtue
of that right they freely determine their political status and freely
pursue their economic, social and cultural development.

Article 4
Indigenous peoples, in exercising their right to self-determination,
have the right to autonomy or self-government in matters relating to their internal and local affairs, as well as ways and means for financing
their autonomous functions.

Article 5
Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain and strengthen their
distinct political, legal, economic, social and cultural institutions,
while retaining their right to participate fully, if they so choose, in
the political, economic, social and cultural life of the State.

Article 6
Every indigenous individual has the right to a nationality.

Article 7
1. Indigenous individuals have the rights to life, physical and mental
integrity, liberty and security of person.
2. Indigenous peoples have the collective right to live in freedom,
peace and security as distinct peoples and shall not be subjected to
any act of genocide or any other act of violence, including forcibly
removing children of the group to another group.

Article 8
1. Indigenous peoples and individuals have the right not to be
subjected to forced assimilation or destruction of their culture.
2. States shall provide effective mechanisms for prevention of, and
redress for:
(a) Any action which has the aim or effect of depriving them
of their integrity as distinct peoples, or of their cultural values
or ethnic identities;
(b) Any action which has the aim or effect of dispossessing
them of their lands, territories or resources;
(c) Any form of forced population transfer which has the aim
or effect of violating or undermining any of their rights;
(d) Any form of forced assimilation or integration;
(e) Any form of propaganda designed to promote or incite
racial or ethnic discrimination directed against them.

Article 9

Indigenous peoples and individuals have the right to belong to an
indigenous community or nation, in accordance with the traditions
and customs of the community or nation concerned. No discrimination
of any kind may arise from the exercise of such a right.'

(http://www.unhcr.org/refworld/country,,,COUNTRYPROF,IRL,,4954ce01c,0.html, this link shows that the UNHCR states there exists an indigenous population of Ireland).

In light of these articles, what does this say about our right, as Irish people, to self determination for our culture and community in relation to the current state of affairs? What affect, if any, does our shared currency have on our right as listed in 'Article 4' for example? What affect does immigration have, if any, on our rights to not have 'forced assimilation or destruction of their culture' as listed in 'Article 8'? The Maori, for example, are actively able to claim protection under these Articles and yet they have only been in New Zealand for about 750 years. I think these Articles show that; there exists as it stands violations our rights as an Indigenous people in Ireland largely because of the latter two points do have and affect on these rights, we do not have financial automomy we have been subjected to forced assimilation.

Which of Ireland's many invading hordes do you proclaim to be the indigenous Irish?

There is very little genetic variation in the Irish gene pool.
Would you ask this same question to the Maori?

Everyone prior to say 1500, anyone after is not real Irish.

More twaddle from a discredited organisation that bestows unearned respectability and intellectual rigour upon member states whilst creating a charter for feckless charlatans.

Does the declaration say anything about the situation where the indigenous people have their very own nation state for which they democratically elect representatives who then go and sign silly treaties and stuff?

Like, limiting them doing that would be a curtailment of their rights or something?

With the Bulgaria & Romania Accession shortly we will see the percentage of non irish jump from 17% to over 20% at a time of mass unemployment and mass emigration of the Irish young. Meanwhile unjust taxation, foreign "aid" and debt surfdom are slowing family formation and putting of the births of tens of thousands of Irish children while housing and treasure are handed to planters by our massers.

Neo-Cromwellian policies which Irish politicians are too afraid to address. Clear violations of the genocide convention.

Maybe a petition like this one is in order:

this will raise interesting questions in the middle east...
how long are the israelis in their current area, how long were the palestinians, what about crusader claims to the land, having been there for hundreds of years before the saracens ousted them....

Nah, a spot of State sponsored ethnic cleansing might be simpler, eh?

The OP champions our right to self-determination.
Presumably this includes the right to self-determine if we want to join a common currency.

Nah too complicated and too risky, a spot of State sponsored genocide would be simpler and appears to be only way in which we can safetly ensure that we don't break the........ genocide convention.
