UN tells Mexico to stop forced sterilizations Fri Mar 10, 2:00 PM ET



GENEVA (AFP) - A UN anti-discrimination committee strongly urged Mexico to stop forced sterilizations of indigenous people and comply with an international convention.




The Committee against Racial Discrimination, comprised of 18 independent experts, told Mexico to "adopt all the necessary measures to put an end to this practice, to investigate it impartially, (and) to try and punish the perpetrators."

The Mexican government admitted to the committee that forced sterilizations continue in some poor states, but denied being involved and said it was trying to put a stop to the practice.

The committee also made recommendations to improve the rights of the country's some 12 million indigenous people, representing around one tenth of the total population, and to eradicate discrimination against them in the media.

It urged Mexico to protect the rights of indigenous peoples to "possess, exploit, control and use their land and territories," and recommended that special attention be paid to the solution of land conflicts.

It also called for Mexico to guarantee the rights of indigenous villages to take part in government and public affairs at any level, and for interpreters and representatives familiar with their languages, cultures and customs to be present in legal proceedings.

The committee called for better security for immigrant workers in Mexico, particularly indigenous communities from Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

They need to sterilize MORE people, not less.

Yep, we're the nazis because we want them to obey US laws on immigration, but they are continuing to attempt to execute a "final solution" on their aboriginal populations.

In the early days, sterilization was a requirement for their "free" universal health insurance.

That is a violation of personal rights, where are those people protesting this outrage. It seems these fair-weather protesters only when the infraction is against the USA.

In all fairness, I'd like to hear more about these forced sterilizations the Mexican government is doing. This UN report lacks information to draw a fair conclusion.

isn't this a form of genocide?

If Mexico is in fact doing these forced sterilizations, wouldn't it make sense for us to cut off all economic ties to Mexico(i.e. no Trade, no more Western Union transfers,etc.)?

I think us in the anti-Illegal immigration crowd should try to promote this as a reason for us to declare war on Mexico.

I think we in the anti-illegal immigration crowd should all learn to use proper English, first.

Oh, and why do you care? I thought you didn't care about human rights.

Speaking of having rights to a plot of land, the indigenous people own Mexico, not the half-breed Spanish.

Read the article. They are only forcing it upon the INDIGENOUS peoples like Indians. You know, the people who were really there first contrary to the claim of some banners during this week's protests.

That would put Wal-Mart completely out of business, along with numerous other companies.
