From: The International Tribunal of Consicence
Mexico City, Nov. 4 -- 10, 2010
The International Tribunal of Conscience sends Solidarity Greetings and an Invitation to the ALIANZA INDIGENA SIN FRONTERAS (Indigenous Alliance Without Borders) for Participation at the International Tribunal of Conscience: Mexico DF, November 4-10, 2010, in acknowledgement and opposition to the below pronouncement of the: U.S. Mistreatment of Indigenous Peoples which Continues, and now Arizona is becoming an anti-people of color State!

Sisters and Brothers of Indigenous America, it is with honor that I forward below an invitation for participation with the International Tribunal of Conscience, that together with some 40 Countries and innumerable People's Organizations, made up of base community leadership from throughout Mexico, Central & South America and the Globe-- mobilizing across our Mother Earth for the creation of a permanent global forum on migration and displacement-- which contributes to hunger, illness, extreme deprivation and genocide.

Our brother Camilo Perez Bustillo and sister Patricia Barba, join with me in preparing for welcoming your participation in giving testimony from throughout Turtle Island and Aztlan, in this way as a national delegation to this first and one of a kind assembly of indigenous organizations representing the U.S. and continent-- can testify to the below denial of human rights and the war against the poor and minorities listed below and which targets worker communities as 'illegal' and 'terrorist'. Our coming together at the Assembly, Tribunal and Caravan has as its central focus, putting end to the long history of assimilation, termination, cultural genocide and genocide policies, that have beleaguered our people's from the beginning of the invasion and throughout the history of the neo-colonization and globalization, that disrespects and imposes anti-human measures that today are being challenged by this historic endeavor. We are integral to this process with our essential involvement!

Please let us hear from you with your responses in preparation in sending delegates that shall be honored with providing humble accommodations by local families and gathering planners, offering reception, welcoming protocols and ceremonies at the sacred temples at the Zocalo/Plaza de las Tres Culturas, Tenochtitlan.

We look forward to working with you in preparing for the Panels at the assembly and testimonies at the tribunal, and delivering the findings to the World Social Forum on Climate via a caravan to Puerto Vallarta by the mobilizations of the People in Movement, International Migrant Alliance, Ex-Braceros with local base of 30 groups-- to deliver the verdict of the ITC to civil society forum and government delegations and participate in mobilizations at the site of the IV Global Forum on Migration and Development (FEMD) Nov. 9-11. This, the antidote to the toxins described below of the common histories of the people and the alienation and oppression experienced in the U.S. and throughout the diaspora and Mother Earth.

Finally, we honor your petition below and agree: Its time to Organize, Speak Out, Join Forces with Other People of Color Movements to bring attention and fight for Indigenous Rights, Sovereignty Rights, Border Rights of Mobility & Passage, Cultural Rights and Environmental Protection of Mother Earth.

We welcome your questions, recommendations, support, shared resources, and participation.
En lak etch, the Earth is Our Mother!

Subject: U.S. Mistreatment of Indigenous Peoples Continues and now Arizona is becoming anti-people of color State!
Indigenous Peoples and immigrants have much in common, particular the alienation and oppression we experience in U.S.. society.

U.S., Government fail is to protect Rights of Indigenous Peoples - A roll of the United States Supreme Court throughout history in the protection of the rights of minorities

The Supreme Court has moved away from from guideline principles called 'canons of construction.' Under those guidelines, the court would interpret treaties and Indian statues in favor of the tribes when they were unclear or uncertain, Its one area of law that has always been useful for tribes. Now, with the creation of Homeland Security, War Against the poor, War Against Drugs, War Against Terrorism and Now, with the War Against Minorities in Arizona, Indigenous peoples will continue to be profoundly affected!!

Many Indigenous peoples are intensely caught up in the current debate of issues. Individual Indians and groups in the Indian communities, while they may disagree on current tribal priorities and ways, we must look beyond all current disputes and together the concept of Global vision, Unity, Community Partnership and Coalition Building.

Once again Indigenous Peoples are being left out of the whole anti-immigrant , anti-people of color and anti-ethnic legislation and debate!!

The long history of assimilation, termination, cultural genocide and genocide policies is not over for Indian peoples.

Its time to Organize, Speak Out, Join Forces with Other People of Color Movements to bring attention and fight for Indigenous Rights, Sovereignty Rights, Border Rights of Mobility & Passage, Cultural Rights and Environmental Protection of Mother Earth.

The privilege of citizenship were slow to come to the Indigenous peoples while the responsibility came right of way. The Navajo Code Talkers served at a time that Arizona was still denying them to vote.

Now, all of us Indians have to be careful about being brown in a no brown zone whether you are a veteran or not.. Your children will not be allowed to learn about the contributions American Indians made to this great nation. Our children/grandchildren will not allowed to learn about our elders, culture and ways. They will only learn about the good things the great "White Fathers," founders and builders did for this Nation and for all of us.

The is very much at the heart of the mission of the Alianza Indigena Sin Fronteras: calling attention to the people who have the least voice and to bring that conversation forward.
We must be part of the Pozole Event, The Call to Action, Support & PARTICIPATE the Battle of Phoenix ON SATURDAY, MAY 29, 2010!!!!!!

The International Tribunal of Conscience (ITC):
is the first of its kind to focus on violations of the rights and dignity of migrants, refugees, and the displaced on a global scale, and seeks to build on the contributions and experiences of the Russell Tribunal, the Permanent People´s Tribunal (PPT)of the Lelio Basso Foundation, the Latin American Tribunal on Water, the Tribunal of Migrant and Refugee Women in Argentina, the Tribunal on Sexual Violence during the armed conflict in Guatemala, Mexico´s International Benito Ju├írez Tribunal and International Tribunal on Labor and Union Rights, and to act in a manner complementary to the mandate of the International Tribunal on Climate Justice and the Rights of Mother Earth recently established as a result of the People´s Summit in Cochabamba, Bolivia (April 2010). Its emphasis will be on investigating, documenting, determining state and corporate responsibility, and recommending remedies and follow-up actions regarding violations of the rights to migrate, not to migrate, and not to be displaced, as measured both against existing legal minimums in international, regional, and national law, and the ethical foundations which underly the demands of migrant movements.
The Tribunal´s first session will be held in Quito, Ecuador Oct.8-12 within the framework of the IV World Social Forum on Migration, as part of our commitment to coordinate our efforts in Mexico City in November with convergent efforts elsewhere. The Tribunal has already decided to assess the impact of SB 1070 in Arizona as its first case following requests along these lines from immigrant rights groups based in Arizona and California.
