Extractions: We greet you in the Presence of our suffering God, who is first named in Scripture after hearing the cries of the poor in Egyptian bondage; in the Name of Jesus, God's Only Begotten, who commanded us to accompany him in bearing the cross; and in the Power of the Holy Spirit who promises to sustain life in the midst of death, who oversees the continuing work of redemption and reconciliation until that day when creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay. During this past week, from 2-4 January 2000, we have been participating in the fourth international Baptist peace conference, sponsored by a variety of Baptist organizations and hosted by Whitley College here in Melbourne. We are 141 persons from 26 countries and every part of the globe. Our conference theme, "Hearing the Cry, Acting in Hope," has focused on attention to multiple issues of human rights and reconciliation. For three days we have unfolded our burdens to each other and to God, in discussion and stories, in prayers and songs. We have studied and interpreted Scripture together; we have allowed the pain in our hearts to overflow in each other's presence; we have engaged in strategic thinking and planning, identifying together the sometimes disruptive but always redeeming work of the Spirit in our scattered communities.

Introduction This paper is based upon research of existing materials of an ethnological and anthropological nature, as well as items from the media, papers written by non-governmental organisations (NGOs), websites and submissions to local, national and international commissions. I have restricted the material to cover those forms of discrimination which exist in Africa which rely entirely on the application of the descent limb of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD). Without this aspect of the ICERD, the cases discussed below have no recourse to international human rights mechanisms to tackle the discrimination they suffer. The first types of descent based discrimination I deal with are the caste systems that exist in areas of the Sahel , particularly West Africa , but also Somalia and the surrounding areas. These are systems of exclusion based on occupational specialization of endogamous groups, in which membership is based on ascription, and between which social distance is regulated by the concept of pollution . This definition can be applied to many of the casted peoples, usually occupational specialists in blacksmithing, potting, barding, leatherworking, weaving and other craft professions, who form a small proportion of some communities across the

Extractions: Botswana HISTORY Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland Botswana adopted its new name upon independence in 1966. Botswana is Africa 's oldest democracy. Until the early 1990's, it was one of the few African nations with more than one political party. A number of other nations then began adopting multiparty systems. The economy, one of the most prosperous on the continent, is dominated by diamond mining. GEOGRAPHY Location: Southern Africa , north of South Africa Geographic coordinates: 22 00 S, 24 00 E Area: border countries: Namibia 1,360 km, South Africa 1,840 km, Zimbabwe 813 km Coastline: km (landlocked) Maritime claims: none (landlocked) Climate: Botswana has a dry, subtropical climate. In summer, which lasts from Oct. to Apr., daytime temperatures often reach 100° F (38° C). Winter days are warm, but the temperature often falls below freezing at night. Average annual rainfall ranges from 22 inches (56 centimeters) in the east to 12 inches (30 centimeters) in the west. Droughts occur frequently. Terrain: The land is hilly in the east and flat or gently rolling elsewhere. Eastern Botswana has the most fertile land, and about 80% of the people live there. Forests cover parts of the north. The Kalahari Desert occupies almost all the central and southwest areas of the country. Bushes and grass grow in most of the Kalahari, but the southwest has sand dunes and little plant life.
