NEPIF to stage public protest all over NE on October 3 to oppose return of CAB

SHILLONG, Sep 26: The North East Forum for Indigineous People (NEFIP) a conglomeration of around 250 civil society groups of the north east has decided to stage a public protest on October 3 all over the region to oppose the return of the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB).

This decision was taken at the first ever central executive council of the NEPIF held on September 25 at Kohima, Nagaland.

Meghalaya was represented by the Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organization (CoMSO).

“The NEFIP in one voice has decided to demand from the government of India to immediately remove the CAB. If the government does not listen and continue to suppress the indigenous people’s demand’s the NEPIF will petition the United Nations Organization,” Robertjune Kharjahrin general secretary of the NEPIF said in a statement today.

Kharjahrin also said that the NEFIP also opposes the proposal to make Hindi as a national language.

“It was also decided at the meeting to urge from the respective state legislative assemblies of the north east to demand from the central government to implement the UNDPRIP,” the NEPIF general secretary said.

The UNDRIP delineates and defines the individual and collective rights of Indigenous peoples, including their ownership rights to cultural and ceremonial expression, identity, language, employment, health, education and other issues.
