HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL COMPLAINT PROCEDURE

On 18 June 2007, the Human Rights Council adopted resolution 5/1 entitled “Institution-Building of the United Nations Human Rights Council” by which a new complaint procedure was established to address consistent patterns of gross and reliably attested violations of all human rights and all fundamental freedoms occurring in any part of the world and under any circumstances.

The complaint procedure addresses communications submitted by individuals, groups, or non-governmental organizations that claim to be victims of human rights violations or that have direct, reliable knowledge of such violations.

Like the former 1503 procedure, it is confidential, with a view to enhance cooperation with the State concerned. The new complaint procedure has been improved, where necessary, to ensure that the procedure be impartial, objective, efficient, victims-oriented and conducted in a timely manner.

History of situations considered since the establishment of the complaint procedure

How does the complaint procedure work?

Pursuant to paragraph 94 of resolution 5/1, the Chairperson of the Working Group on Communications, together with the Secretariat, undertake an initial screening of communications based on the admissibility criteria set in paragraphs 85 to 88 of resolution 5/1. Manifestly ill-founded and anonymous communications are screened out. Communications not rejected in the initial screening are transmitted to the State concerned to obtain its views on the allegations of violations. Both the author of a communication and the State concerned are informed of the proceedings at each stage.

Two distinct working groups – the Working Group on Communications and the Working Group on Situations – are responsible, respectively, for examining written communications and bringing consistent patterns of gross and reliably attested violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms to the attention of the Council. (Click in the “in this section” for more information on both Working Groups and the closed meetings of the Council).

What are the criteria for a communication to be accepted for examination?

A communication related to a violation of human rights and fundamental freedoms is admissible, provided that:

  • It is not manifestly politically motivated and its object is consistent with the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other applicable instruments in the field of human rights law;
  • It gives a factual description of the alleged violations, including the rights which are alleged to be violated;
  • Its language is not abusive. However, such a communication may be considered if it meets the other criteria for admissibility after deletion of the abusive language;
  • It is submitted by a person or a group of persons claiming to be the victims of violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms, or by any person or group of persons, including non‑governmental organizations, acting in good faith in accordance with the principles of human rights, not resorting to politically motivated stands contrary to the provisions of the Charter of the United Nations and claiming to have direct and reliable knowledge of the violations concerned. Nonetheless, reliably attested communications shall not be inadmissible solely because the knowledge of the individual authors is second-hand, provided that they are accompanied by clear evidence;
  • It is not exclusively based on reports disseminated by mass media;
  • It does not refer to a case that appears to reveal a consistent pattern of gross and reliably attested violations of human rights already being dealt with by a special procedure, a treaty body or other United Nations or similar regional complaints procedure in the field of human rights;
  • Domestic remedies have been exhausted, unless it appears that such remedies would be ineffective or unreasonably prolonged.

National human rights institutions, established and operating under the Principles Relating to the Status of National Institutions (the Paris Principles), in particular in regard to quasi-judicial competence, may serve as effective means of addressing individual human rights violations.

How to submit communications?

Please fill out the complaint procedure form if you consider that your communication meets the abovementioned criteria.

Where to send communications?

Communications intended for handling under the Human Rights Council  complaint procedure may be addressed to:

Complaint Procedure Unit
Human Rights Council Branch
Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
United Nations Office at Geneva
CH-1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland
Fax: (41 22) 917 90 11

Aaron Paquette is a First Nations Metis artist, author and speaker.

Published on May 4, 2014
Aaron Paquette is a First Nations Metis artist, author and speaker. This is a documentary interview conducted in Autumn 2007.

Produced by Earth Magic Media
Aaron Paquette – From The Spirit pt3

http://www.aaronpaquette.net

much information on his website ” Aaron also has regular art shows in Galleries across Canada, takes on public art commissions, works as a guest curator for The Art Gallery of Alberta, St. Albert’s public Gallery: Profiles, and the McMullen Gallery at the University of Alberta Hospital. He has had a traveling exhibit with the Art Gallery of Alberta called Halfbreed Mythology. ”

And of course he has a FB page : ” Welcome to my Official Art Page here on FB. Click like! And every now and then you can read my words or see my new art and videos. It’s free & valuable. 🙂 ”
https://www.facebook.com/AaronPaquetteArt/

Sometime back I was alerted to a prayer request via a FB Sister’s post, which I then reshared and it was On This Day, {A FB App } and it was today, March 28th, a few years ago, and so, I have been gathering as much information as I can for this young man, his wife and their children.
And a Miracle happened:
Here is a photograph, with these words from Aaron, Quote begin,
” Tonight was a hard one.

Tonight you cried.

Tonight the enormity of what happened to your body washed over you.

Tonight the loss of time that never returns hit you like a wall and you wept for your baby who is looking more like a boy every day.

Tonight you needed comfort and you needed reassurance.

Most of all you needed love.

You are so frail. I am shocked every time I see it.

But you are so strong. Stronger than anyone I have ever known.

We talked about Purpose.

We talked about Reasons.

We talked about bargaining with fate.

We’re halfway through.

Stages and milestones are ahead and we’ll deal with them together.

In grief your entire body was wracked with pain. The magic that is holding you together, healing you so quickly, had to give way to this stage of grief and sorrow.

You are beautiful.

You are giving.

You are a good friend and sister and daughter.

You are an amazing mother.

You touch lives every day and you have touched my life so deeply, my dear sweet love, I will never be the same.

You are the unexpected sunrise and I am grateful to live another day in your light.

Tonight you cried.

I listened.

We spoke in soft tones.

And wouldn’t you know it?

We began to laugh.

That laugh that sounds like a sudden rush of water in a trickling stream and fades into the gentle chuckling of a little brook. You are so soft and kind.

Why did this happen?

Maybe for that one moment when sorrow transformed into wistful wisdom.

Maybe for something more.

Whatever it is, we’ll find out.

Together. ” End Quote

The Day of the Accident:
” On Wednesday May 30, 2012, 9:10pm a body was shattered.

The body was that of my dear wife. She was just finishing up an evening jog with a friend when she was struck by two vehicles. The first hit her and the second ran over her, pinning her body beneath one of the tires.

Her friend was screaming at the driver but he was unaware there was anybody beneath the car.

Police and Emergency Medical personnel lifted the car from off her.

I was not yet aware of any of this as I was at home. Our 1 year old baby asleep in his crib.

Backtracking events leads us to the road snaking through our neighbourhood (she was only a few blocks from home), and a yield sign that was mostly ignored.

An avoidable accident caused by sever driver error, lack of concern, and lack of precaution led to the accident. That we do know. The SUV blew through the yield sign and eyewitnesses say the other driver was struck too hard and quick to respond.. The result was colliding into my wife on the sidewalk.

When I arrived on the scene there were dozens of people who had poured from their houses to see what was the matter. Emergency vehicles were on scene and my wife was in an ambulance.

She was alive. I asked her if she knew me and where she was. She looked into my eyes and blinked twice. Her whole body was shaking from the shock.

That’s when I noticed her wrist was snapped in half.

Her face was bloody and beginning to swell.

A couple of hours ago, after a long night of tears and waiting, we found out the rest. And there will be more to come.

Deep cuts, contusions and road rash all over her body and across her stomach.

All her ribs are broken.

There are tubes draining the blood that is gathering between her ribcage and her lungs.

Her liver and pancreas are lacerated.

Along with her wrist are broken fingers. This is her left arm. She is left handed.

She has fractured vertebrae. The worst is the T11. It’s obliterated. They will fuse the vertebrae around it with metal plates. There will be metal plates holding her wrist together.

She will live.

She has many surgeries ahead and a long road to recovery. It’s uncertain yet if there will be any loss of limb function or if there will be any long term effects from concussion.

She will not be snuggling with our baby for a very long time. She won’t be doing any of the things she loves.

She loves to teach. She has a grade 3/4 split class. She was so excited to get back to them after her maternity leave and now she won’t be back for a very long time.

She loves to run. She was going to run a half marathon in two weeks.

She loves yoga.

She loves dancing.

She loves playing with the baby.

Right now she has tubes all over her, keeping her still, sedated, and alive.

Because someone couldn’t wait three seconds at a yield sign.

Because someone wasn’t paying attention as they drove a 3500 pound weapon.

I’m writing this to let everyone who is going to ask know what happened.

But I am also writing it to ask everyone who reads this to realize that as you scan these words someone is performing surgery on my beautiful darling.

Please slow down.

Please don’t text.

Please be patient.

And please remember that every time you sit in that car you take responsibility for lives you will never know except in passing. Literally.

Pass by. Pass by. Be aware and pass by.

And please, pray for my wife and especially for our little one who already misses his mommy.

We are blessed.

She is alive.

——-

Please share this. Please let this horrific night make difference and save lives.

Please slow down and drive safe.

Here is an example:

And to answer the question regarding the “brightness” of the photo, this happened in Canada. There is light on the horizon all night in Edmonton at this time of year. The sun sets at around 9:45pm.

Today Clarice is walking and recently got back to teaching. Thank you for everything.

For those asking how they can help:

Rather than asking for charity or handouts, if you want to helping some way, consider picking up Aaron’s new, YA Book, Lightfinder.

Do not feel in ANY way obligated to do this. Your prayers and well-wishes are MORE than enough and have filled our lives with healing, beauty, light, faith and love.

ALL BOOK SALES GO TOWARD HELPING IN CLARICE’S RECOVERY.

But please, again, do not feel in any way obligated. It’s only for those who are asking how they can help. Either way, there are two free children’s books for you in one of the links below.

Everybody MUST Get Stoned ~~

Okay I searched U Tube, and on page 15 or 16 and came across this one, I am only 2+ minutes in, but I can’t wait to hear what else he has to say ! 🙂 Warm laughter, in a friendly way and BTW, you may have surmised I do not HAVE to do a F~~king thing today Published on Sep 5, 2012

Detailing extensive experiments by an Israeli scientist who discovered thousands of “cannabis receptors” in the brain, Sadhguru explains that the human system itself is capable of producing such chemicals on its own. Activating the pineal gland, he says, is a fundamental part of yogic practices, through which one can be “stoned” by his own nature — without side effects.

while looking for, and still looking for a version of ” Everybody Must Get Stoned” that a very enlightened virtual FB Brother, in Cyberspace, shared, I came across this and if you have some time at about 4 minutes in she tells a Dentist joke, in Gratitude, 😉 ” EVERYBODY MUST GET STONED~AMAZING GRACE ”

I hear some people been talkin’ me down
Bring up my name, pass it ’round
They don’t mention the happy times
They do their thing, I’ll do mine
Ooh, baby, that’s hard to change
I can’t tell them how to feel
Some get stoned, some get strange
Sooner or later, it all gets real
Walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on
I remember the good old days
Stayed up all night gettin’ crazed
Then the money was not so good
But we still did the best we could
Ooh, baby, that’s hard to change
I can’t tell them how to feel
Some get stoned, some get strange
Sooner or later, it all gets real
Walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on ”

And lastly, AN Opinion ~~~ ” Can You Overdose on Marijuana? Nope. ”
” When we hear about the dangers of drugs, the biggest concern in regards to use is the threat of overdose. And, of course, for certain drugs this concern is quite valid: per the Center for Disease Control, 13,000 people died from heroin overdoses in 2015 and 91 people continue to die each day from opioid overdoses (of both illegal drugs and prescription drugs).

Yet cannabis is a different ballgame. Whether or not someone can die from smoking or ingesting too much pot has occasionally been painted as controversial when, in fact, it isn’t.

Overdose – What it Means

The term “overdose” has different meanings for different people.
Sometimes . . .”

In conclusion, my disbelief of our current situation brought on my desire to just get stoned ~~ in the attitude of Gratitude NAMASTE’

A summary on you tube: ” Yellow Cradle to Grave (Uranium Mining Fallout } ”

Published on Jan 7, 2016
The nuclear industry is a many-headed toxic beast – nuclear power and nuclear weapons are just the most visible ones. Mining, milling, processing, reprocessing, manufacturing, and transporting nuclear materials are some other heads of the beast that are less visible. All are desecrating Mother Earth and killing her peoples. It’s time to deal with the initial stage of this problem. We can begin by cleaning up the abandoned uranium mines and placing a National Environmental Security Moratorium on all uranium extraction. https://www.popularresistance.org/the… USA Cows Fed Copper To Hide Radiated Gray Spots ☠ Lake By Uranium Mine Melts Steel!

USA Cows Fed Copper To Hide Radiated Gray Spots ☠ Lake By Uranium Mine Melts Steel! https://youtu.be/d1lMSpP9WYQ
Irresponsible corporations and negligent government agencies have abandoned more than 10,000 toxic uranium mines throughout the US. These hazardous mines poison our air, land and water and harm public health. Currently no laws require cleanup of these dangerous sites. A new campaign, Clean Up The Mines!, aims for remediation of these mines through federal legislation and action, and public education. Abandoned Uranium Mines (AUMs) The Environmental Protection Agency and US Geological Survey document over 10,000 abandoned uranium mines in the US, most in 15 western states on public, private, and tribal lands. Over 4,200 of these mines produced uranium that was sold to the US Atomic Energy Commission for use in nuclear weapons from the 1940s through the 1970s. Starting in the 1960s, much of the mining was done to provide fuel for nuclear power plants. There are several AUMs in and near the Grand Canyon, 169 of them within 40 miles of Mt. Rushmore, and eight right on the edge of Grand Teton / Yellowstone National Parks. One in seven (10 million) people in the western US lives within 50 miles of an AUM.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION TO CLEAN UP THE MINES AND ALL Future Uranium Mining Down! http://www.cleanupthemines.org/action/

AUM hazards and contamination pathways. Physical hazards of AUMs come from unmarked, unprotected mine entrances, cliffs, falling rocks, and collapsing buildings and equipment. Wind picks up radioactive dust from rock piles and blows it for miles people breathe fine particles into their lungs, resulting in much higher levels of lung cancer near AUMs. People carry the radioactive dust, dirt, and mud around on their clothes and shoes, spreading the contamination to their homes and families.

One of the decay elements of uranium is radon gas. It seeps up through the ground in many areas around mine sites where people and animals breathe it in. Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US. Water picks up radiation in a variety of ways – rain washes radioactive dust from the air and rocks and carries it into streams and rivers. Surface and underground water dissolve uranium from rock and dust. This is particularly true of uranium that has been exposed to oxygen, which changes it from UIV to UVI, which is more soluble in water. (This is the principle used in ‘In Situ Leaching’, similar to fracking techniques, the method most commonly used now.) The result is polluted rivers, lakes, and aquifers, with no safe available drinking water for thousands of communities.
