Topic of the Chagos and Tromelin at the UN

The Prime Minister of Mauritius, Navin Ramgoolam, has spoken out his wish (and that of the Mauritian People) of gaining back the Chagos and Tromelin islands to the United Nations. He made it clear that the British Government (and French Government with regards to the Tromelin islands), acts were violations of the UN declaration 1514 and Resolution 2066.
He wants a fast resume of the talks and that the Sovereignty is returned back to Mauritius.
Thank you Prime Minister.

The Oldest Primary School Pupil - in my opinion

Kenya's oldest primary school pupil is to me the oldest in the world. Kimani Nganga Maruge is 85 and attends the same school as two of his 30 grand kids (who are in more senior grades). He is currently in New York to address the importance of free primary education (my view as well) to the UN. This is his first ever flight and definitely the furthest he has been from his home. He will be touring New York in a yellow school bus, with his Head Teacher, and will be displaying a hundred thousand paper figures campaigning for children deprived of education due to poverty. Education is a basic right, no matter at which level, and I hope that the leaders of this dear planet understand this fact. Here is the article from the BBC.

Birth of a Nation

Have you ever thought of starting a new country? Well, here is someone who did - Danny Wallace. The country has a flag, national anthem, constitution and even a national treasure. It's population is greater than that of Monaco and intends to grow. You can fly to it by clicking here and you will not need any visa :D
