Denial of right of indigenous peoples to participate in political processes


The indigenous forest dwelling peoples of Zaire, Cameroon, Gabon and other nations continue to be denied their basic right to political self-determination. Political self-determination is also denied the Negrito peoples of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Andaman Islands of India. The reservation policy of Brazil, as applied to native Brazilian forest-dwellers, allows for no genuine self-determination.
