    There is more of a chance the Qom will get their land back than the Scots and Welsh their land back.

    They have no land, they are under Argentine jurisdiction. Their laws or international laws do not apply here. Nor does the UN charter of self-determination since a precondition to signing the UN was that no RETROACTIVE enforcement was allowed.

    They could also have been exterminated by now. The funny thing about revisionists such as yourselves, is that you call Argentina all these names but you forget that in 1868 a law was passed to protect the Native tribes from attacks against each other.

    All over the Americas, many tribes were extermimated by other tribes. That has not happened in Argentina since that treaty. (the only case was the extinction of the Tierra del Fuego natives, and that was a combinatino of disease and criminal behavior by Europeans, actually many of them BRITISH settlers).

    The Formosa Gov't sends out goons (they call them Police) to run them off of their land pretty frequently. If that doesn't work they burn them out, if that doesn't work they rape the women ( and the men but that doesn't get into the news often) and if that doesn't work they kill the leaders or their family.

    These outer provinces are basically feudal states run by a single family. They are the law or what passes for it in this horrible country.

    OH, you must be new here.

    Yes I know the British love to vaunt about how their “legacy” in their former colonies was so great, yet immediately disassociate themselves if the legacy happens to be “dark” (pun intended).

    I've had said that many times of the British, and all European nations: they love to brag to no end about their “great contributions to the world” (you have 4000 years of history and 800 million people vs Argentina 200 years and 40 million people), but immediately sweep under the rugs the nasty little appurtenances of this long history filled with “achievements” (like the Arctic, Africa, and Asia being split between France, Britain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Denmark, Russia, Holland well into the 20th century, and causing half a billion dead around the world in 400 years of colonialism).

    All your accusations and all your finger pointing is about practices that ended many years ago, or are being dealt with, publicly and legally.

    The point of this article is that today, 2013, your country is doing nothing for these people, regardless of your Constitution or your law of 1888, forbidding them to fight amongst themselves.
    It has nothing to with what happened in other countries and other peoples.

    Very obviously, according to the article, their pleas are falling on the deaf ears of your government.

    This does not seem much different than other Argentine genocides.

    All I inferred was that Argentina - the 8th largest country in the world with not a big population - could surely spare more than a few hundred hectares for one of the original tribes.Further whose causing all the dead in Tibet - Now - not last century. I speak for myself - as I said before No European country has a good record dealing with indiginous people. Just because Argentina is 200 years old does not give it the right to colonial ambitions over smaller territories. Also as many people point out Argentina is predominantly a collection of Europeans, so you have inherited a land because of the crimes that you say were done by Europeans/ former immigrants to Argentina. The indiginous people did not say to the Europeans - Please take our land - they were removed.

    Nostril

    Your history is appalling..

    Firstly, look at the Jim Crow laws and then look at which of the United States they were MOST prevalent in. Not those States which were part of the British Empire...by far and away they were more prevalent in Latino “southern States”. Of course your historical ignorance leads you believe “all” the US was part of the British Empire.

    Your next post is laughable hypocrisy...“you like to distance yourselves when the legacy is dark”. Then “Argentina has a 200 year history” in the same post...hahahahahahaha

    That is funny Nostril...distancing Argentina from the conquistadors, distancing Argentina from colonialism, Distancing Argentina from the genocide across a continent...THAT WAS YOU! YOU DOPEY FUCKER.

    The colonialists weren't the ones who stayed in Europe you dickhead, they were the ones that went to “the colonies”. Your the Colonialist, the genocidal murdering, slave-driving colonialist....You are correct Nossie, it wasn't us who stayed in Europe it was YOU LOT who actually did the genocide,

    So..Nostril. since you stopped calling yourselves Spanish Genocidal Colonialists..and started calling yourselves Argentines (nobody is fooled we know what you are)...what have you achieved in the 200 years since the name change.

    Well, you've done a bit more colonising, a bit more genocide (I guess old habits die hard)...you've harboured a few Nazis, the ones who liked experimenting on children, you've had economic collapse, and millions of your population live in abject poverty.

    Well done...oh yes...you tried to steal someone else's territory in 1982 and were humiliated, threw a few folk live from aeroplanes over River Plate...and that's it...

    How's that for revisionist you genocidal colonialist, nazi sympathising, economically and morally bankrupt, nun killing twat.

    They can live wherever they want, just not in a “reservation”. To me they are a bad idea, and fosters marginalization and addiction.

    Look at the reservations in Canada and the USA, they are about as good as a siberian gulag. Rampant poverty, drug abuse, alcoholism, and no opportunities. And these are countries “supposedly” wealthy.

    Toady
    I have been to those Reservations, many are poor, but hardly “gulags”.
    You would have readers believe that they are imprisoned - they are free to come and go.
    Reservations are on “Native Land” and “Native Land” is not restricted to Reserves of small townships - the Natives communally own large areas of land.

    The Government continually funds the Tribes and Reserves, but they are Self-governing.
    Many Reserves are very wealthy!
    In Canada they receive monies, education, tax concessions, and their land claims are on the whole, legally negotiated and respected.

    Is that true of Argentina's Natives? No.

    How much land did your Natives have before you took it away?? Formosa? Patagonia?

    Did they just give it to you? No.

    Can they make a living and thrive on what they were left? No.

    What are you doing about it? Nothing.

    What have you agreed to do about it? Nothing.

    What do you plan to do about it ? Nothing.

    You, and the rest of Argentina have the opportunity right now, 2013, today, to act responsibly.
    Will you? No.

    What does that say about YOUR society, today??

    The 1967 referendum allowed Australian aborigines to be considered full citizens, the 1993 high court ruling ( the Mabo case ) overturned the concept of terra nullis i.e. the belief that the land was unoccupied. This enabled aborigines all over Australia to reclaim vast areas of the land for their own use, a process that is still ongoing and will likely continue for decades.

    So we have established that Nostril has no idea about which US states were part of the British Empire, no idea about Australia, and no idea about Argentine history....does he actually go to school, or have the “bullies” driven him away.

    His posts do give an interesting insight into Argie mentality though.

    He honesty believes that Independence of Argentina from Spain, Canada from the UK or Brazil from Portugal is the “same” as India or Malaysia returning to the indigenous population. It clearly isn't.

    Independence throughout the Americas is about a European implanted population , who used military might to seize land, who now outnumber the indigenous (in most cases), using the right to self-determination to self govern.

    This is the exact right, for the the exact reasons Argentina DENY the Falkland Islanders.

    Nostril in his bewildered and asinine way has highlighted the hypocrisy.

    Of course in seizing their land, the islanders evicted 50 militia who'd been there 6 weeks, had raped and murdered, and had been attempting to usurp land where there was a “known sovereignty dispute” (which according to Argentina (but not Britian) meant they have no rights).

    Argentina (when they were Spanish genocidal colonialists) seized their land from the Amerindians, massacring 100,000s of them. There is no moral high ground there versus the “kelpers”.

    not only that, but he actually wants us to believe that all of the Latin-descended colonist are actually indigenous peoples of south america.

    I feel very sorry for the Qom living in that vile place known as Argentina.

    Their lands no longer exist and they will never get them back, not while there is a Peronist bastard alive in The Dark Country.

    Very, very sad.

    Hey Trolley...in Canada the native population are given millions of dollars to do with as they please...for some reason the people in charge squander the money on themselves....its called corruption...which is a natural trait of those who become “leaders” of their communities. Look at the “leaders” of Argentina...multimillionaires...and still stealing....Cristina F de K worth up to 18 million dollars...(US).

    So it's the natives faults they don't have running water in a country (Canada) with more fresh water than any other.

    Read #37, I quoted Yankeeboy who said the same thing you did (it's the natives fault they live worse than in Africa in the USA/Canada), and they are applauded by the anglo argie-haters, when I said it (as a satirical device), everyone gets outraged.

    Once again, you are all to DUMB for me superior reasoning. And once again you all have taken a free ride on the TRolley_to_Truth. Enjoy the ride everyone!

    ”Argentina did not have alarge slave population. Argentina declared the American slave trade an act of piracy (1824). Argentina and Columbia signed a Treaty with Britain committing to the total abolition of the slave trade and forbidding it in its own dominions (1825). The Argentine Confederation and Uruguay signed treaty with Britain with the same provisions as the 1835 Treaty with Spain (1839). Charles Darwin aboard the HMS Beagle did not find slaves in rgentina. He was horified at the ongoing genocide directed at Native Americans. [Darwin]”

    Has the government stopped yet?
