Since the last General Assembly, the UNPO Presidency has recommended the induction of five new and exciting UNPO Members: the government of Guam, the Catalan National Assembly, the Yoruba World Congress, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra/Biafra Independence Movement (BIM-MASSOB), and the Movement for the Survival of the River Races in Zambesia, bringing the total number of active members of the UNPO up to 44, representing over 300 million people and some of the most well-known present and historical issues around decolonization, indigenous rights and self-determination.
Each new member will be given the opportunity to introduce themselves to the wider membership, express their firm commitment to the values and rules contained within the UNPO Covenant, and outline why they have applied for UNPO membership. These new members will be formally inducted into the UNPO at the conclusion of this session.
