Contact us:

PCJSS/JSS key persons:
Sudha Sindhu Khisa, President/ Rupayan Dewan, Vice President,/Tatindra Lal Chakma, General Secretary/. Responsibility shouldered on 11 July 2013.

Background: The present central committee was elected on 11 July 2013, on the 2nd day of the 3-day long 10th PCJSS national conference. The earlier committee (convening committee) was formed on 10th April 2010 when Mr. Santu Larma convened the 9th national conference (29-31 March 2010) in sheer violation of the party constitution and excluded a few hundred veteran leaders and members and also "formally" expelled 7 top veteran leaders (Chandra Sekhar Chakma, Sudhasindhu Khisa, Rupayan Dewan, Tatindra Lal Chakma, Eng. Mrinal Kanti Tripura, Advocate Shaktiman Chakma and Binoy Krishna Khisa) and also declared their capital punishment. The present leadership is determined to democratise the JSS under a collective leadership.

Raja Devasish Roy launches Oxfam FPIC guideline in Melborne


A New Guide To Free, Prior And Informed Consent From Oxfam

Oxfam is pleased to announce a new practical Guide to Free Prior and Informed Consent.

The FPIC Guide is designed as a practical resource for Indigenous Peoples and Project Affected Peoples and their NGO supporters who are faced with imposed infrastructure or extractive industries on their lands, waters or territories. In the coming weeks and months we will be translating the guide into a number of languages (including French, Spanish, Khmer, PNG Pidgin, Bahasa and Tagalog) and providing some summary cards to accompany the guide for use in community meetings and trainings.

FPIC for Indigenous Peoples was recognized as one of the Key Principles of the World Commission on Dams, and as such we are pleased to produce this Guide in the 10th Anniversary year of the WCD. Since the WCD was launched back in 2000, FPIC was of course given further strength when it was enshrined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The Oxfam guide was recently launched in Melbourne, by Raja Devasish Roy, a king of the indigenous Chakma people from the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh/India who have long struggled with resource extraction and infrastructure projects imposed on their land. Raja Roy is a member of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples and we were honored to have him launch the report.
