Acknowledging that on the 21-st century, in conditions where information travels with speed of electrons and technology enabling to turn tens of millions of tons of land, by choosing in four year intervals governors and self-governors does not really enable to independently manage the faith of land land and the people;

Esti Peoples Association leaders (Elders), as legal representative of people, have unaninously deemed necessary to take following decisive steps to determine the fate of land and people – to announce:

  1. We – the people, on who´s self-determination from 24.vebruary 1918 is established the Estonian state – are indigenous peoples of Estland, within the meaning of 
    – UN declaration on the Rights of indigenous peoples (UNDRIP), 
    – European Parliament resolution on the rights of indigenous peoples (2017/2006(INI)),
    – ILO Convention of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples (ILO C169).
  2. Decisions effecting the land and the people must be be coordinated with the people, via Esti Peoples Association Chancellery (Estmark NGO).
