The first government of King Sobhuza II was headed by a member of the royal family, Prime Minister Prince Makhosini Dlamini, the leader of the Imbokodvo National Movement INM ; the cabinet consisted overwhelmingly of aristocrats, while a white finance minister reflected settler interests and some members of the cabinet were businessmen or professionals Levin The government thus largely reflected the power that had been accumulated by the monarchy and the traditional aristocracy and excluded the growing middle and working classes that had voted for the opposition and the peasants who had provided the INM with its overwhelming victory Booth Labour policy after independence continued to privilege the interests of industry owners over those of workers, for union activity remained tightly controlled, the grievance indvuna system that had resulted in the strikes was reintroduced and state-established wage boards were dominated by government and management Levin
And when I say limited, that means we only got our knowledge from internet — no training whatsoever. The 3-day workshop opened our eyes and gave us more directed goals in working with the community development in the Badjao area.
We were inspired to do more knowing that there are people around the world who are doing the same thing as we do in our own community. Then Sisters Elsa and Dulcine visited the Badjao area after the workshop. Sister Elsa visited because she is a Presentation Sister and to validate the things we discussed during the workshop.

She was delighted with what she saw in the community and the total work in general. Early February, we received an invitation from Sister Elsa stating that we were invited to talk at the UN.
No one dared to volunteer.
UN seems so frightening! After weeks of negotiations, we all got to say YES. We started processing papers and other necessary documents. Alongside with the preparation was the preparation for the closing of classes. It was like a marathon every day. The day to fly to the US came.
It was a difficult time, leaving on our own for the first time as the Presentation Sisters were not able to go with us. Another difficulty was leaving our own family, our small children. It was a mixture of excitement, fear and sadness.
What did we do there at the UN? What we attended was the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues with the theme: These made us think of our own community issues in the Badjao areas and gave us lots of ideas on how to deal with these problems.
Midway into the second week of the Forum was our own Side Event. We were very scared although we had plenty of time to prepare for our talk and luckily, we had a very competent coach, Sister Jocelyn Quijano of the Presentation Sisters.
We did not expect to get a full house audience considering that 3 of the 4 speakers were first timers Venerva, Pabs from Negros, and I.
The support that we got from other delegates at the UN was very inspiring. Annie documented the whole event and produced a movie that was uploaded to the International Presentation Association IPA website.
Our individual skills and talents made a good impact in becoming a wonderful Philippines Team. That made our UN experience a memorable one!
The highlights of our experience: We were nominated as: Edwina as one of the co-chairs of the event, and, b. Annie and Venerva as rapporteurs. That meeting brought us to another level of experience and made us more confident to become more involved in the whole process and discussion of the global issues specifically concerning the Indigenous Peoples.
Attending UN events made us aware of how they function and how we can participate efficiently in the global issues. Speaking at the Side event about our work with the Badjaos and presenting it to the world was a step for us to be heard and acknowledged as an Indigenous community.
It was a perfect venue to discuss global issues and concerns. It feels good to know that we are not the only group around the world who suffered a lot in terms of discrimination and displacement. Same thing happened to most Indigenous Communities around the world.
We are very thankful for the great opportunity given to us by the International Presentation Association. We are deeply grateful to the Presentation Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, particularly Sister Evelyn, for mentoring us always and for trusting us in all the work with the Badjao and for allowing us to grow personally and professionally, to Sister Elsa and Sister Jocelyn of the International Presentation Association for inviting us to the UN and for coaching us while we were there doing our battles, to SERVE and Misean Cara for supporting as always and to the the Badjao community for allowing these things to happen and for allowing all the interventions in the community to happen.
We hope to further our knowledge and skills so that we could function efficiently in the community. And most of all, we hope to see more Badjao representatives to go and conquer the world.
We were born in this land, we grow and live this way and we will die defending this land, protecting this life and dreaming for a new bioculturally diverse Negros Island for our children. I am representing the Indigenous Peoples of Southern Negros Occidental, the atis and the bukidnons with different sub-groups.
The purpose of the side event is to be able to share the problems and challenges of the IPs in our communities, what actions we did as interventions, results and impacts of our interventions, the ongoing threats and recommendations, and how it relates to the national, regional and international agenda in the context of the Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.Anti-Bribery & Corruption.

Marriage, also called matrimony or wedlock, is a socially or ritually recognised union between spouses that establishes rights and obligations between those spouses, as well as between them and any resulting biological or adopted children and affinity (in-laws and other family through marriage).
The definition of marriage varies around the world not only between cultures and between religions. The present International Arbitration Rules of the Zurich Chamber of Commerce of January 1, are applicable if, at the time when the arbitration agreement was concluded, at least one party had its registered or actual seat, its domicile or its habitual residence outside Switzerland.
