UN Guterres Demands $3 Billion In Propaganda Funds Amid Global Cutbacks As Bans Press

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, Oct 12 – Amid budget shortfalls in countries all over the world, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on October 12 asked for $3 billion, including specifically for propaganda.

  The request was made in a speech to the UN Budget Committee, which whose Cameroonian chair Guterres made a deal for silence on the slaughter of civilians since 2018. That year, Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up as it covered the Committee and its chair from Cameroon, video here, and banned since.

  Here's from Guterres' October 12 speech:

"To fully implement the mandates entrusted to us, we will require a total of US$2.99 billion... The proposals include resources for new and expanded mandates and directives by the General Assembly, in particular for the Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, the human rights treaty body system and the expansion of the ACABQ.      Last year, I proposed an increase of funding by $3.3 million, or about ten per cent, for technical cooperation projects... $1.9 million to deliver a new global communications strategy for the United Nations.       The COVID-19 crisis shows us more than ever the need for authoritative communications from the United Nations, countering misinformation and promoting solidarity.      With your support, we can use additional resources to acquire new communications tools and technologies; train staff, particularly in digital storytelling; and expand our reach and impact in multiple languages."
  As we have report, this is the propaganda program of Melissa Fleming, who not only has kept Inner City Press banned over 830 days, but refuses to even respond and explain why.

  Until Guterres changes or is gone, #DefundTheUN.
