UN Demands Removal of Video of UN Raid of Press Office “As First Step”

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, March 19 -- The day after the UN raided Inner City Press' office, going through papers and taking photographs, and Inner City Press which was not notified belatedly arrived and filmed the post-raid scene, the UN has demanded the deletion and censorship of the video. The video is here.

  According to the UN's demand, those who entered and searched Inner City Press' office without notice or consent were just going their job and have a right not to be filmed.

   The UN demands that Inner City Press “remove the images and the YouTube video as a first step to addressing this matter.”

  Well, no. When you as a representative of authority enter a journalist's office without consent, you should be filmed -- and it should not be a surprise.

  By analogy, the New York Civil Liberties recently released an application to film any police authority doing their work -- one has an absolute right to film

    It is telling that Ban Ki-moon's UN and Department of Public Information refused the NYCLU's July 5, 2012 request to be informed of due process rules for journalists, and now demands more censorship, of a video related to their raid on a journalist's office.

   We will have more on this. Watch this site.
