IP ProtestCopenhagen, 10 December (IPFCC Media Team) - We, INDIGENOUS PEOPLES’ representatives from around the world participating in the ongoing climate change meeting under the International Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC) condemn the violations of our rights in the ongoing negotiations on climate change. On the occasion of Human Rights Day, we seize this opportunity to call on all State Parties to respect our fundamental rights in these negotiations.

The climate crisis threatens our very survival, particularly forest-dependent, ice-dependent peoples, peoples in voluntary isolation, and the indigenous peoples of small island states and local communities.

Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Totally Excluded


  • Where: Room - Asger Jorn located in Hall H of the Bella Center
  • When: Tuesday, 8 December 2009 at 18:00 pm


INDIGENOUS PEOPLES from around the world condemn the texts proposed by the Danish Government on the basis that they totally exclude indigenous peoples’ rights on all key issues.

The International Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC) are made up of indigenous organizations from all regions of the world and are present here in Copenhagen. Indigenous Peoples are supposed to be at the centre of all climate change debates. This is because they have lived with and protected nature for generations and are now the worst affected by climate change effects like floods, typhoons, drought, violent thunderstorms etc. They have least contributed to this global disaster. The full and effective participation of indigenous peoples, local communities and vulnerable groups is therefore the key to achieve a just and equitable outcome of the climate negotiations.
