The Association of Comprehensive Studies for Independence of the Lew Chewans
Welcome to the homepage of the Association of Comprehensive Studies for Independence of the Lew Chewans: ACSILs.
... By gaining independence from Japan and removing all military bases from our islands we Lew Chewan wish to achieve our long sought-after goal of becoming a sovereign island of peace and hope that exists in friendship with other countries, regions and nations of the world. ... We do not hesitate at the possibility of independence, but want to take it seriously as both an object of study and a political project. We wish to address both for ourselves and others the questions related to making an independent Lew Chew a reality. What are the steps we need to undergo to realize this aim? What kind of decolonizing processes have been taken by other colonies around the world? What kind of economic policies should be in place before and after independence has been achieved? We will multilaterally and comprehensively study and discuss politics, public administration, international relations, prescriptive concept of the Lew Chewan people, identity, language revitalization, language right, art, education, gender, public welfare, environment, discrimination against minorities, issues of disparity, settler colonialism, and more. We will also conduct human resource development for the independence of the Lew Chew. ... Based on these collaborations of scholarship we will also participate in forums and commissions of the United Nations, international conferences, in order to carry out a movement aimed at Lew Chewan independence. ...
