DECLARATION OF MONTREAL

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights for People Living With Albinism

WE, partners of the first International Day for Albinism Awareness of Montreal held June 13, 2018,

Taking note of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly held December 10, 1948.

Recalling Human Rights Council resolutions 23/13 of June13, 2013 on attacks and discrimination against persons living with albinism, 24/33 of September 27, 2013 on technical cooperation for the prevention of attacks against persons living with albinism and 26/10 of June 26, 2014 on International Albinism Awareness Day,

Taking note of the preliminary report on persons living with albinism submitted by the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights to the Human Rights Council at its 24th session,

Taking note also of African Commissioner on Human and People’s Rights resolution 263 of November 5, 2013 on the prevention of attacks and discrimination against person living with albinism,

Considering the attacks against person with albinism, including women and children, which are often committed with impunity,

Welcoming the efforts by States to eliminate all forms of violence and discrimination against people living without melanin,

Taking note also of the international attention to the human rights situation of persons with albinism and the work of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children,

Wishing that Members States continue the efforts they consent to make to protect and preserve the rights of persons with albinism to life, dignity and security, as well as their right not to be subject to torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and to continue their efforts to ensure equal access for persons with albinism to employment, education, justice and the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health,

Stating the imperative need to enhance the promotion and protection of all human rights, including economic, social and cultural rights, as a matter of priority for the international community,

Noting that in many parts of the world awareness of the human rights situation of persons living without albinism remains limited,

Recognizing the importance of increasing awareness and understanding of albinism in order to fight against global discrimination and stigma these persons are the objects,

Welcoming the observance by civil society actors of June 13 as International Albinism Awareness Day,

Considering that all the efforts coming from the international community and the civil society actors who gave life to the resolution 69/170 adopted by the General Assembly December 18, 2014 proclaiming June the 13th International Albinism Awareness Day, shall not prevail if the actual approach concerning albinism problematic does not change,

Considering that the word albinism used by the U.N. through its texts and documents is pejorative and degrading in all respects,

Considering that the use of the word albinos as an adjective was created in the XVIIth century with the intention of negating the humanity of the so-called savages with all the weight of European and African ethnocentrists,

Considering that the word amelanism (deprive of all pejorative or degrading connotation) is relevant to represent amelanics, i.e., persons living without melanin, abusively called albinos,

Considering that all sorts of violence and/or discrimination, the persons living without melanin have to suffer is the result of ignorance and that this ignorance causes fear and maintains superstitions within many populations,

Considering that the adoption in the teaching syllabus of the explanation of what amelanism really is, from nursery school to high school should enable the comprehension of amelanism and facilitate the integration of pupils and students born without melanin,

Considering that a pupil who has learned that amelanism has nothing to do with mysticism nor supernaturalism would easily consent to share his or her candies with his or her fellows friends living without melanin,

Considering a teacher corps who has a knowledge comprehension of what amelanism really is could approach without mistrust or apprehension any pupil living without melanin,

Considering that an educated citizen is a responsible citizen and that today’s children are tomorrow’s citizen,

CONSEQUENTLY

We proclaim that the persons living with albinism are human beings and shall benefits of all the recognition from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,

We request from the U.N. and its General Assembly to proclaim amelanism as a Public Safety problem,

We request the UNESCO to invite all its States Members to introduce teaching awareness of amelanism into their different learning systems,

We invite the General Secretary, all United Nations organizations and all States Members leading governments to link all types of bilateral and/or multilateral help to the respect and promotions of the human rights for all persons living without melanin,

We request that the use of the word albinos should be replace by the word amelanic and the albinism to be replace by amelanism,

We request the help from all the people living without melamine and all the people sensible to amelanism from here and elsewhere to share widely the actual Declaration and to transmit it by all possible means to the U.N., to the UNESCO and to the government of all States Members.
