Principles

 

DEMOCRACY

Democracy is a form of government by and for the people.

SELF-DETERMINATION

All peoples have the right to self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.

HUMAN RIGHTS

Human rights are international moral and legal norms that aspire to protect all people everywhere from severe political, legal, and social abuses.

NONVIOLENCE

Nonviolence aims to end injustice by making the perpe­trator of injustice see reason and undo the wrong done by him.

TOLERANCE

Political tolerance is the willingness to extend basic rights and civil liberties to persons and groups whose viewpoints differ from one’s own.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Environmental protection means to protect and preserve (indigenous) peoples’ natural habitat and resources in order to safeguard the unique and independent cultures from threats posed by ‘development’, oppressive regimes and environmental degradation.
