UN's No-Vax UNGA Has COVID Positive Participant Now Should Be Shut Down, & Censor Guterres Fired

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Video Q&A
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - SDNY/FOIA

UN GATE, Sept 21  – Each day, the current United Nations less accountable. And Inner City Press, banned now for the 1277th day by Secretary General Antonio Guterres continues to report on it, on August 16 publishing a UN internal memo about moving international staff to Kazakhstan. On August 16, 17 and 18 it in writing asking Guterres and his UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming about it - no answer. And no one they let in ask, or seeming had the memo, below.

  On September 21, even while banned Inner City Press covered what it could of the entrances to the lawless "honor system" UNGA, for example Nigeria and Bangladesh, then Bolonsaro and Biden. Since July, NYC-based Inner City Press has asked the UN in writing why it would hold this super spreader event, after bringing cholera to Haiti. No answers.

Now later on September 21, this: Health Minister Marcelo Queiroga tested positive for Covid-19. He will be quarantined for 14 days in New York, in isolation, and will not return to Brazil for the time being. The information was confirmed by the Special Secretariat for Social Communication (Secom) on Monday night.  The minister is in New York, where he accompanied the delegation of President Jair Bolsonaro... Queiroga stated that he will remain in quarantine in the US.   He was at the UN General Assembly today.

That's it - under contact tracing, UNGA should be shut down. And the censor Antonio Guterres held accountable

From inside(rs), this pool report, forwarded to Inner City Press by disgusted insiders and which we publish because the UN has banned all but its colluding handpicked scribes:

"US President Joe Biden, who earlier arrived at the UN headquarters to participate in the general debate during the high-level week, did not stop in front of journalists. The American leader entered at about 9.45 am.   At the entrance, he was asked how he plans to improve relations with France, whether he plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whether European allies still trust the United States, whether there is a deadline for recognition of the Taliban movement. The President only lingered on the question about relations with France, but the journalists did not understand quite well, what he said. Perhaps the phrase sounded: "They're great." Biden was accompanied by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield. Sometime after him, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky entered the hall. All delegates arriving at the building today are wearing masks. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was one of the first to enter the headquarters. He did not answer the question whether he was vaccinated before entering the building and whether he plans to meet with President Joe Biden.   The only person who passed near the press was EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell.  In response to a request to assess relations with Russia. he said just "good-good".   Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu greeted the journalists but did not answer questions. The Australian Foreign Minister did not comment on the decision to create an alliance with the United States and Great Britain."

   We'll have more on this.

 On September 18, in violation of NYC COVID law and of basic free press principles, this: "Dear colleagues,  MALU has just informed us that there will be a stakeout on Monday, September 20th at 11:40 am with the Secretary-General and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, Boris Johnson. A limited number of only five (5) RESIDENT media, as well as a couple of photographers will be accommodated.   RSVPs will be taken on a first come first served basis. Please send your name to no later than 4:00 PM TODAY (09/18) with the subject line "STAKEOUT RSVP" if you want to attend.  The first 5 names will receive a confirmation from the UNCA Office and will be sent to MALU.  Thank you for your attention and cooperation.  Valeria Robecco President, United Nations Correspondents Association."

 Note: The UK Mission to the UN refuses Press questions, including about its failure on its failures in its former colony Southern British Cameroons (Ambazonia).

 The UN has neither responded to or offered any explanation when a lawyer's letter - to UN official Fleming, and Tal Mekel, and to each UNCA Executive Committee member - urged them to have a dialogue about ending the UN's banning and censorship of Inner City Press.

On August 9, an independent (minded) journalist asked Dujarric about the letter, video here,

The letter was received by the UN's Melissa Fleming, Maria Luiza Vioti and Tal Mekel and to each UNCA Executive Board member, to them citing UNCA's stated goals that it has a charter to supposedly uphold.

What's next? Since the letter, Inner City Press has published exclusive stories not only from the U.S. court systems but about the United Nations, including its agencies UNOPS, UNFPA, UNITAR and UNESCO. (Also credited in AP, Daily Mail, and Nigeria's Sahara Reporters, amid answers from the IMF.)

But none of its written questions have been answered by the UN Spokespeople, and it remains banned from entry to the UN's briefings. This must end.
