Representatives of these regions asked the UN to ensure their right to self-determination
The indigenous peoples of Alaska and Hawaii appealed to the international community to ensure their right to self-determination in connection with the "illegal annexation" and "occupation" of the United States. It is reported by Tass .
The document indicates that Alaska and Hawaii "in 1959 were absorbed by the United States through fraud and deliberate violation of the mandate and principles of the United Nations, and the process of self-determination."
Authors of the statement of the UN call to correct this mistake.
The indigenous peoples of Alaska and Hawaii emphasize that the sale of Russian Alaska United States in 1867 at all, "did not mean the transfer of sovereignty over Alaska to the United States ", while" the US invasion of Hawaii in 1893 was taken in violation of bilateral treaties and international law. "
The authors of the statement are going to get things done peacefully: through UN mechanisms and holding in Alaska and Hawaii referendums on self-determination of indigenous peoples.
To work more effectively set up a joint working group "Alliance of Alaska-Hawaii for self-determination."
On last May 7 in Geneva meeting with reporters representative Ronald Barnes Alaska and Hawaii - Leon Siu criticized US policy in relation to indigenous peoples, calling it the "occupation."
