Former Manitoba First Nation Chief asks IRAN for help with a human rights matter
When you need assistance on a human rights matter, where do you turn? The courts, the Human Rights Board, the United Nations? How about Iran?

A former Manitoba First Nations chief who says the federal Aboriginal Affairs department orchestrated a "coup" against him is turning to the Iranians for help.

According to APTN News, the former chief of Roseau River is upset over the Aboriginal Affairs department's decision to postpone a referendum on how the First Nation chooses its leaders.

Roseau River band members were to vote this week on whether to elect a band government based on a custom code or one under the Indian Act. Terry Nelson said the department's decision to cancel the plebiscite was aimed at ensuring he could not return to power.

"This was a coup at Roseau River," Nelson told APTN.

"They are not allowing people to make any decisions…there is no democracy."

Obviously he doesn't trust anyone in Canada to help him.

Probably with good reason.

Last week, a First Nations group from British Columbia wrote an open letter to the Chinese government, suggesting that the Canadian government was violating aboriginal communities' human rights.

Now..dont get me wrong here..ok.

Seems to me by asking the worst human rights offenders for advice, they are deliberatly slapping Harper in the face.
