Owe Aku International Justice Project will participate in a panel discussion at the Zen Center in New York's Greenwich Village that is being co-hosted by Amnesty International, Cultural Survival and the Zen Center. The subject of the evening is to raise awareness of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigneous Peoples currently being "reviewed" by the State Department of the United States, one of two nations in the world to have not endorsed the Declaration. The community is invited for free - see the invitation for information and to rsvp. Owe Aku IJP looks forward to seeing a good turn out from New York's Native community.
