Resolution supporting Libyan Arab peoples Jamahiriya, condemning genocidal UN sanctions

Diplomatic dispatch from the Lakota Nation, 8 May 1998

TO: United Nations—Geneva, Working Group on Indigenous People
Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization—Hague
Libyan Arab Jamahiriya—Tripoli
US Senate—Washington, DC

The following is a RESOLUTION adopted unanimously and signed by 51 Indigenous Chiefs and authorized Ambassadors and Spokesmen, May 7, 1998, at Oglala Lakota College, South Dakota

May 7,1998, International War Crimes Tribunal, Lakota Nation (USA) (Lakota hosts, guests Tlingit Nation, Huron, Azteca, Mexica, Zapoteca, Aleut, Cherokee, Shuswap, Stoney, Cheyenne—official Delegates to UN Committee on Human Rights Abuses—Rudy James, Chairman)


The peaceful and sovereign Nation of Libya, known as the Libyan Arab Peoples Jamahiriya, is suffering GENOCIDAL destruction and death at the hands of the United States-backed UNITED NATIONS,

Essential medical supplies and Food are being denied to the innocent and peaceful People of Libya, in North Africa, denying them basic Human Rights according to the Genocide Convention,

Necessary air transportation is being denied to the Libyan People in and out of their country, as reported by many international human rights organizations, and the Arab League, Non-Aligned Movement, Organization of African Unity, and the Islamic Conferences, and many other confederations and member nations of the UN and UNPO, threatening further direct loss of life to critical patients and medical supplies (see attached 5-page fact sheet on the Impact of the UN Sanctions, including documentation from the UN’s own Report of the Secretary-General on the Humanitarian consequences - Health and Social Welfare; Economic consequences—Agricultural and Animal Husbandry, Transport and Communications, Industry and mining, Finance and trade, and Energy—Petroleum and Electricty) [attachment provided upon request to Oglala@hotmail.com],

A minimum of $20 billion of necessary life-sustaining income has been denied to the Libyan People since 1992, when sanctions were imposed,

The United States, United Kingdom, and UNITED NATIONS have imposed these genocidal and arbitrary, illegal measures on Libya knowing full well who the true perpetrators are of the tragic bombing in 1988 of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, which has been used as a political and religious pretext to punish the sovereign and independent Libyan People,

The International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands ruled on February 27, 1998 that the US and the UK have no legal right to impose sanctions on Libya,

These sanctions are the same as the ongoing Genocide of 506 years against the sovereign Indigenous Nations of the American hemisphere—known worldwide among the non-aligned and indigenous nations as THE AMERICAN HOLOCAUST,

Therefore, Let it be RESOLVED that the undersigned Delegates and Heads of State of many Indigenous Nations support the Civil Rights of the Libyan People to worship ALLAH in their own way, and to manage their own sovereignty and resources with freedom and dignity,

That a Delegation of 10 Chiefs will go to Geneva and Tripoli, with several news crews, to investigate and document the grievances submitted by Libya regarding Security Council resolutions 748 (1992) and 883 (1993),

And that if proven true, we will Condemn the murderous Sanctions killing many Libyan People, who are our brothers and sisters.
