CERD Case Arguments Dartmouth 2K9 Will Marcal BQH 2 CERD- systemic impact CERD fails- systemic violations to indigenous people Mr. Torsten  Schackel Prof at Sacramento state college, 20 09 , http://www.forestpeoples.org/documents/asia_pacific/india_ne_cerd_req_feb09_eng.pdf This short report is respectfully submitted to the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination  (”the  Committee”) by the United NGOs Mission Manipur, a network of 235 indigenous peoples’ organisations from  northeast India, and the Forest Peoples Programme, an international NGO (“the submitting organisations”).   The submitting organisations previously transmitted reports to the Committee concerning the situation of the indigenous peoples in northeast India  on 31 October 2006, 10 January 2008 and 07 July 2008. Those reports  detailed  systematic discrimination and other human rights violations against the indigenous peoples of northeast India , which are especially manifest in relation to the 1958  Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act  (“AFSPA”);  India’s ongoing failure to recognize and secure indigenous peoples’ property, political, and other rights; and its active violation of indigenous peoples’ rights in connection with the extant and imminent construction of some 68 mega-dams throughout indigenous peoples’ territories in that region This present report calls further attention to the dangerous and urgent situation that persists and has  intensified in northeast India as a result of India’s discriminatory acts and omissions . For instance, and as discussed below,  India recently granted environmental permits for the construction of the Tipaimukh dam in Manipur without  any meaningful attempt to consult with and obtain indigenous peoples’ consent.

Not only does the CERD prohibit discrimination by government actors, it also places affirmative obligations on the Chinese government to eliminate racial discrimination by private parties. For example, Article 2(1)(b) forbids the Chinese government from advocating or supporting racial discrimination by a private party
