Ada paramouncy making decisions on behalf of the people

March 16, 2018

Hello y'all!
Thank you so much for the support.
Last Saturday the community was called to a meeting with the Ada chieftancy, and their lawyers to discuss the Trasacco issue.
Unfortunately they called the community less for a discussion and more to dictate the future and rights of the community. During the meeting they claimed ownership of the land and stated that they will handle all dealings with Trasacco without the community. Many of the elders from Kewunor agreed perhaps out of fear or respect for the stool (chieftancy), but when one youth from our advocate team stood to ask a question when they called for questions he was never answered and when he spoke about human rights the lawyer responded "you know your rights, you know your rights, but soon you will know your left". They quickly closed the meeting before another youth could ask a question.
This meeting showed us that the chieftancy is acting against human and environmental rights and is not looking out for the good of the people. Now more than ever it is critical that the commuinty unite, and get trained on their rights. Please help us to do that and to support the legal defense of the community by donating to our gofundme and by sending the petition to international organizations and friends and family.
Thank you all again for your support
