PIECE OF MY GOA? By A Pereira

Dear Goans,

Nice of you'll to support Goa. But few educators stop at certain explanations and delve not much. Or they want to treat Goans as mere fools.

If you'll care for Goa, you should know that it was demarcated in 1788. British India, Portuguese India, Dutch and French India were all different entities. Indian Consulate was housed in Damodar Mangalji & Cia edifice in Pangim.

Before any history professor can enlighten, please note that, we will only match our thoughts if the other comprehends with detailed facts.

Allow us for the "enlightenment" process, wherein you shall understand Goa's case in simple English.

1. Were we, as indigenous Goans consulted at any given time by a special "Visiting Mission" of the UN as per their Resolutions 1541/42 - A Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples?

2. Then Goans, A treaty is void if, at the time of its conclusion, it conflicts with jus congens of general international law. The number of jus congens is considered limited but not exclusively catalogued. They are not listed or defined by any authoritative body, but arise out of case law and changing social and political attitudes. Generally included are prohibitions on waging aggressive war, crimes against humanity, war crimes, maritime piracy,genocide, apartheid, slavery, torture. As an example, international tribunals have held that it is impermissible for a state to acquire territory through war. As per the Vienna Conventions. Hence the Treaty between Portugal (Soares) & India (Chavan) is nothing but a farce, a sham.

3. Are there any Treaty's signed by Regedores of the 223 Comunidades/G√£ocarias of Goa with the Indian government?

4. Was a plebiscite ever held between 1961 - 74?

5. Article 49, 6th paragraph, of the Geneva Convention IV provides: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."

Additional Protocol I:- Article 85(4)(a) of the 1977 Additional Protocol I provides that “the transfer by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies” is a grave breach of the Protocol.

ICC (International Criminal Court) Statute:- Under Article 8(2)(b)(viii) of the 1998 ICC Statute, “[t]he transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies” constitutes a war crime in international armed conflicts.

Nowadays we term people who have crossed the frontiers of Goa as "Ganttias".

So Goans, what does the Indian Military Manual mention? And even if there is one! That to term Annexations as Liberations?

6. According to any knowledgeable person, conquest is a method of acquiring territory in the past but after the Covenant of the League of Nations, the Charter of the United Nations and the General Treaty for the Renunciation of War, the acquisition of territory in International Law by the use of "force" does not confer any title.

7. What is the exact meaning of "Satiamev Jaiate"?

Please note Goans, Special Status or even the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution of India is nothing but a "SHAM", others are only fooling indigenous Goans again and after, if Goans want to get fooled for ever and ever, then it is fine for them, not us.

MARIO SOARES IS MUCH REPONSIBLE FOR OUR MESS AND NOT PORTUGAL - The United States and the UK did not lift a finger to help Portugal in any practical way. Nor did anyone else.
