At UN, Gabon's Dynastic Ali Bongo Celebrated by Bronx Zoo, Bill Clinton, Citi & Leo diCaprio

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, June 6 – Ali Bongo, whose family has ruled Gabon since 1967, is being feted by the World Conservation Society / Bronx Zoo and arranged a softball National Geographic interview with pre-screened questions, documents obtained by Inner City Press show. The WCS event, according to the documents exclusively leaked to Inner City Press by Bronx Zoo whistleblowers, includes representatives from Citigroup (recently praised by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres), Mitsubishi, Walmart / Walton Family Foundation, the Leonardo diCaprio Foundation, Robin Hood and the Office of President Bill Clinton. Document here. Last year in Washington the Atlantic Council reportedly canceled an award it was quietly giving to Ali Bongo, after his dictatorship (and cut off of the Internet as in Cameroon) were raised. (Atlanic Council in a denial says Bongo was never considered.) But the UN and its Ocean Conference apparently suffer no such vetting or scrutiny: hence the leaking to Inner City Press. This too: National Geographic's questions, and Ali Bongo's answers including the ocean as "a vessel for recording past climate change" were known in advance of the interview. Click here to view the document, via Patreon. We'll have more on this.
