In a controversial move, the first three defendants to go before the court are former members of the Sierra Leone government (including the former defense minister whose motion to dismiss was recently denied ) rather than the Revolutionary United Front , and the trial will focus on the atrocities of the government-affiliated Kamajor militia. The first trial of the RUF, which is accused of atrocities at least as serious including widespread mutilations and murders, will begin in July. Posted by jonathan at 11:17 AM in Africa - Politics and Law Comments (0) TrackBack A divided panel of the Special Court for Sierra Leone has held that recruiting child soldiers is a crime - with one of the world's foremost human rights figures dissenting. The dissent by Appeals Chamber Judge Geoffrey Robertson may seem surprising at first glance, but its logic becomes apparent from the fact that the decision turned on exactly when such recruitment became criminal.

They settled into the area and began intermarrying with the local population The Muslim traders who came to the region were generally wealthy, and marrying into their families carried with it a great deal of prestige. Over time Islam and the Arabic language also became firmly established in the north. However, Islam spread quite slowly into the interior of the Sudan, only reaching the western and central regions around the fifteenth century. In the nineteenth century, Sudan fell under the colonial domination of Egypt and Britain. It gained independence in 1954.

Many cultures have been traditionally nomadic, but nomadic behaviour is increasingly rare in industrialised countries. Typically there are two kinds of nomad, pastoral nomads and peripatetic nomads. Pastoralists raise herds and move with them so as not to deplete pasture beyond recovery in any one area. Peripatetic nomads are more common in industrialised nations travelling from place to place offering a trade wherever they go.

Extractions: This policy of alliance was furthered in 1763 when the British Crown, by Royal Proclamation, solemnly recognized the existence of Aboriginal land titles and subsequently signed numerous treaties with Aboriginal Peoples. In the 19th century, however, alliances with Aboriginal Peoples ceased to represent an advantage to the colonial powers, and legislators initiated a process leading to the oppression of aboriginal rights and institutions. This same committee recognized that if Canada does not respect the right of Aboriginal Peoples to self-determination including access to their lands and resources as expressed in Article 1 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the economic marginalization of Aboriginal Peoples will continue. At the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, it is time for the Government of Canada to commit to a policy of genuine recognition of the rights of Aboriginal Peoples. We, the undersigned organizations and individuals, have read the draft United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We endorse it. Indigenous Peoples have been, and continue to be, subjected to systemic and institutionalized racism, and we believe that this Declaration will be an important tool in combating these attitudes and policies. This document, the result of much debate, constitutes a minimum standard in the eyes of Indigenous Peoples and is fully consistent with Canada's other international commitments.

SEARCH STEERING COMMITTEE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE TRANSITION IN SUDAN ISSUE PAPER B-3 THE MARGINALISED AREAS OF THE NORTHERN SUDAN AND THE QUESTION OF SELF-DETERMINATION. This paper is based on research by Suleiman Musa Rahhal. Overview The North-South conflict of the Sudan is one of the longest conflicts in Africa and likely to continue into the next century. More recently, the marginalised people in the North joined the armed struggle; creating another conflict in the North, a "North-North" conflict between centre and periphery. The Government in Khartoum and some opposition members within the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) tend to play this down. Northern Sudan is a land of minorities. From the outside it may appear to be a land of Arabs, but closer scrutiny shows a patchwork of literally hundreds of different groups, some of them practically invisible to anyone except the most socially sensitive observer. Today there are eight major groups of marginalised people in the North, including: the Nuba, the South Blue Nile people, the Beja, Darfur, the Nubians, the Baggara, Fallata and Southern/Western displaced peoples settled around major towns and cities. All of these have a different standing with regard to the claim for self-determination. However, because of scope of this paper we will discuss four main groups of marginalised people, all of whom have resorted to armed struggle. These are:

But you ignore the power struggles between ethnic groups and the widespread practice of nepotism - which have soured democracy in the past. Democratic rule can only become a reality when African people place their interests as individuals and communities before kinship bonds. This is possible. In the harsh terrain of north-eastern Sudan, the Rashida and the Beja nomads compete for scarce resources. They only survive by acknowledging their common interests and ultimately, by co-operating.

Extractions: The Muslim Peoples Sudan Table of Contents In the early 1990s, the largest single category among the Muslim peoples consisted of those speaking some form of Arabic. Excluded were a small number of Arabic speakers originating in Egypt and professing Coptic Christianity. In 1983 the people identified as Arabs constituted nearly 40 percent of the total Sudanese population and nearly 55 percent of the population of the northern provinces. In some of these provinces (Al Khartum, Ash Shamali, Al Awsat), they were overwhelmingly dominant. In others (Kurdufan, Darfur), they were less so but made up a majority. By 1990 Ash Sharqi State was probably largely Arab. It should be emphasized, however, that the acquisition of Arabic as a second language did not necessarily lead to the assumption of Arab identity. Despite common language, religion, and self-identification, Arabs did not constitute a cohesive group. They were highly differentiated in their modes of livelihood and ways of life. Besides the major distinction dividing Arabs into sedentary and nomadic, there was an old tradition that assigned them to tribes, each said to have a common ancestor. The two largest of the supratribal categories in the early 1990s were the Juhayna and the Jaali (or Jaalayin). The Juhayna category consisted of tribes considered nomadic, although many had become fully settled. The Jaali encompassed the riverine, sedentary peoples from Dunqulah to just north of Khartoum and members of this group who had moved elsewhere. Some of its groups had become sedentary only in the twentieth century. Sudanese saw the Jaali as primarily indigenous peoples who were gradually arabized. Sudanese thought the Juhayna were less mixed, although some Juhayna groups had become more diverse by absorbing indigenous peoples. The Baqqara, for example, who moved south and west and encountered the Negroid peoples of those areas were scarcely to be distinguished from them.
Extractions: Population NARRATIVE PROFILE Location : The name Beja is applied to a grouping of Muslim peoples speaking dialects of a Cushitic language called Beja, and living in Sudan, Eritrea and Egypt. They are traditionally pastoral people whose territory covers some 110,000 square miles in the extreme northeast of Sudan. History : Many scholars believe the Beja to be derived from early Egyptians because of their language and physical features. They are the indigenous people of this area, and we first know of them in historical references in the Sixth Dynasty of ancient Egypt. Over the centuries, they had contact and some influence from Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Turks. A few Beja became Christians in the sixth century. The southern Beja were part of the Christian Kingdom of Axum centered in what is now southern Eritrea and northern Ethiopia. Although never completely conquered by a foreign power, the Beja in the 15th century were absorbed into Islam by marriages and trading contacts with nearby Arab tribes. In the seventeenth century they expanded farther south seeking better pastures and conquering other peoples along the way. By the 18th century, the Hadendowa Beja were the dominant people of eastern Sudan.
