Article 10 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples read in French by Mariam Wallet Mohamed Aboubakrine of the Tuareg people.

What will your party do to ensure the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous Peoples in regards to their lands, territories, and resources?

Article 10 states:


Indigenous peoples shall not be forcibly removed from their lands or territories. No relocation shall take place without the free, prior and informed consent of the indigenous peoples concerned and after agreement on just and fair compensation and, where possible, with the option of return.


Les peuples autochtones ne peuvent être enlevés de force à leurs terres ou territoires. Aucune réinstallation ne peut avoir lieu sans le consentement préalable – donné librement et en connaissance de cause – des peuples autochtones concernés et un accord sur une indemnisation juste et équitable et, lorsque cela est possible, la faculté de retour.
