In the wake of this year's International Day of Tolerance, 16th November 2015, which fell just three and four days respectively after the horrifying Paris and Beirut terror attacks, UNPO would like to put the emphasis on the importance of multiculturalism and inclusion.
UNPO’s founding Members envisioned an organization, which would strive for a more equitable society, one in which nations, peoples and minorities, could have a say in their own political destiny and find nonviolent solutions to conflicts which affect them. Since then, UNPO has consistently fought against any form of intolerance, exclusion, harassment, violence, extremism, or terror.
To uproot terrorism, we must meaningfully engage with those members of society who feel abandoned and marginalized, before radicalism becomes an option. To uproot terrorism, we must unite and work together, and not demonize our peace-loving Muslim neighbours, immigrants or refugees.

The Unrepresented Nations and People Organization (UNPO) is an international, nonviolent and democratic membership organisation. Its Members are indigenous peoples, minorities, unrecognised States and occupied territories that have joined together to defend their political, social and cultural rights, to preserve their environments and to promote their right to self-determination.
