Extractions: The main subject of the 19th Session of the U.N. Working Group today is "Indigenous Peoples and Their Right to Development." This is an important subject for the more than 12 million Hmong people in Laos, China, Vietnam, Burma, Thailand and other countries, and the more than 300 million indigenous peoples on the global level, because they need economic, social, cultural, education, political development, human rights, and peace. Many thousands of those people have and are dying of starvation, disease, oppression, genocide, human rights violations and ethnic cleansing warfare. Many thousands of Hmong people in Laos and other indigenous peoples on the global level are crying out for survival, peace, human rights, freedom and democracy.
Extractions: Falls Church, Virginia Abstract 1. Introduction In his famous dissenting opinion in Olmstead v. U.S., 277 U.S. 438 (1928) , Justice Louis Brandeis called the right to be let alone "the most comprehensive of rights and the right most cherished by civilized men." Justice Brandeis's ruling could just as easily apply to the right of indigenous peoples to be let alone from intrusive central government "development" and surveillance programs. The increasing use of satellites to survey lands and oceans for natural resources comes at the expense of many indigenous peoples to freely conduct various activities on their ancestral lands. Many indigenous tribes maintain a certain kinship with the territory upon which they live. This kinship runs deep and in some cases has an important religious significance for the people concerned. 2. Geographic Information Systems (GISs) and Indigenous Lands Indian leaders contend that those who operate GISs must be sensitive to the traditions surrounding their lands. Many Indian tribes feel that certain data must remain private and not be released to the general public. Data security and privacy controls therefore become problematic. Tribal officials such as the Colville Confederacy leadership feel that certain data cannot be treated as regular data. Information on hunting and gathering areas has a spiritual significance for the Indians that is perhaps unappreciated by statisticians in cold, gray and distant computer rooms (Marchand and Winchell, 1994, 51).

Extractions: by Rudolph C. Rÿser, Ph.D. States Must Now put in Place a Fourth World Policy Counterfeit Islam Stalking with Terror and Fourth World nations are in the Crossfire Officials of States governments, particularly those that are rushing to engage the New World War declared by US President George Bush should stop for a minute and think. States must recognize that they are entering a battle against a globalized movement that is reactionary in character. They must recognize that this movement seeks to use Fourth World nations against the state system. The violence being visited on innocents and combatants alike is intensifying the fear; the anger and the resolve for revenge and Fourth World nations are in the crossfire. Only one state in the world, the Netherlands, has undertaken to introduce policies toward the Fourth World into foreign policy and domestic policy considerations. One explanation for the increasingly ferocious attacks on civilians, commercial buildings, and government buildings as well as ships by commandos is the failure of states governments to develop a sophisticated Fourth World policy that serves their interests as well as the interests of the Fourth World.

Their stronghold was the "Golden Triangle" in the borderland of Thailand, Laos and Burma. They were the Hmong, and one of their leaders was the charismatic headman Lao-Tong. At the height of the Vietnam War, in 1969, Swedish filmmaker PeÅ Holmquist traveled to South East Asia to make a film on Lao-Tong and the Hmong people. FROM OPIUM TO CHRYSANTHEMUMS documents Holmquist's return after 30 years. With new material filmed in Thailand, Laos, and the United States, and incorporating scenes from the 1969 documentary, the film shows how much has changed, and what has happened to the Hmong, both in Thailand and Laos, and in the United States.
