Geneva: Motion on minority discrimination in SA
The Unrepresented Nations and People Organization's (UNPO) conference in Geneva, unanimously accepted a motion in which they expressed their concern about the discrimination in South Africa against minority groups.
The motion was proposed and motivated by Dr. Pieter Mulder, FF Plus leader.
The motion also recommended that a request is addressed to the Secretary General of the United Nations to send a fact finding mission to South Africa in order to find out first-hand about the circumstances such as amongst others farm murders in South Africa.
Dr. Mulder was elected as member of the presidency (Executive Committee) of UNPO during the conference. The presidency consists of nine members. As president of UNPO, Mr. Ngawang Choepel of Tibet was elected. The new vice president is Mr. Mohamoud Daar from Somaliland (see here).
In the UNPO motion, reference was made amongst others to affirmative action which is used to discriminate against white, brown and Indian people based on their race in the workplace, entrance requirements to university, awarding of tenders and discrimination even on the welfare terrain.
