Extractions: Saturday, April 24, 1999 Samuel New York City, NY - On April 23, representatives of Yachay Wasi (NGO/DPI), The Wittenberg Center (NGO/ECOSOC) and the International Romani Union (NGO/ECOSOC) presented the human rights violations: "Desecration of Indigenous Burial Sites and Display of Indigenous Remains" to the Human Rights caucus of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development CSD-7 meeting currently at United Nations Headquarters in New York City. The statement below was given and, as one of the topics of CSD-7 is Sustainable Tourism, the issue of "display of Indigenous remains" was approved by the Caucus to be included in its report at the conclusion of CSD-7 on April 30. It is a timely decision as the exhibit in Florida closes tomorrow. Desecration of Indigenous Burial Sites and Display of Indigenous Remains CSD-7 - Human Rights Caucus - April 23, 1999 "Indigenous Peoples have the right to manifest, practice, develop and teach their spiritual and religious traditions, customs and ceremonies; the right to maintain, protect, and have access in privacy to their religious and cultural sites; the right to the use and control of ceremonial objects; and the right to the repatriation of human remains. States shall take effective measures, in conjunction with the indigenous peoples concerned, to ensure that indigenous sacred places, including burial sites, be preserved, respected and protected."

When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as I saw them with eyes still young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people's dream died there. It was a beautiful dream... "The nation's hoop is broken and scattered. There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead."

Extractions: ROMANI WRITER JAKE BOWERS BELIEVES THAT A LAND WITHOUT GYPSIES IS A LAND WITHOUT FREEDOM. FEW PEOPLE WOULD recognise the Romani flag if they saw it. Let me describe it for you, so that you'll recognise it should you ever see it flapping alongside the Union Jack or Stars and Stripes. The bottom half is green to represent grass, the blue top half represents the sky, and a red wheel in the foreground represents the journey we made from India 1,000 years ago. Our flag represents a romantic picture of Romani life. It's a hopeful image of the freedom we the gypsies are often perceived to have, but have rarely found. In today's Europe, it could just as well consist of a barbed wire fence with a concrete background. For fences, restrictions and borders are a greater part of our reality than the blue sky above and the green grass below. Less than 10 per cent of the world's eight million Romanies remain nomadic. We have been 'sedentarised', assimilated and persecuted by communists and capitalists alike. The personal autonomy we favour, and the freedom it represents, has sometimes provoked romantic wonder, but all too often has resulted in hostility and genocide, ranging from the gas chambers of Auschwitz, to the cultural cleansing of the British countryside enforced by the 1994 Criminal Justice Act (CJA). The CJA not only made trespass a criminal offence, it removed the duty of local authorities to provide stopping places for travellers. Our traditional lifestyle has effectively been outlawed.

The author, who received the first FEL grant to support some of the research published here, wrote to us: [it is] in French, which will make it accessible to those speakers of the Kagoro language who are literate in the official language of their country. The other problem is that prices of books published by Köppe are usually high, and an average Malian won't be able to buy such a book, but hélas, I can do nothing about it... I asked the editor to send one copy of the book to the FEL. which we have received, and is available for review. - Ed.
