In UNGA Circus of Censorship Guterres Talks With AU about COP in Egypt Abusing NGOs

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

UN GATE, Sept 18 – Just before the UN's hyped and often decadent General Assembly week, Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Sunday, September 18 "met with H.E. Mr. Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the African Union Commission. The two leaders discussed support to ongoing complex political transitions in Africa, preparations for the 27th Conference of the Parties to be held in November 2022 in Egypt."

But Egypt is targeting environmental NGOs in the run-up to the COP. On September 12 banned Inner City Press asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming, still without answer, "On Egypt and COP 27 what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on the accusations against the Egyptian government for severely curtailing the ability of environmental groups to carry out their work, even as it prepares to host the COP27 climate summit in November"? What a scam.

Guterres on September 14 held a briefing with friendly journalists only, delivering a lengthy answer in Portuguese with no translation.

  This came after a year of UN failure on Ukraine, Haiti, and corruption in the DR Congo exposed by Inner City Press.

Guterres and his head of media access Melissa Fleming have kept Inner City Press banned, most recently not even responding to its application last week to enter and cover the UNGA week. 

 While Guterres sufficiently serviced the Permanent Five members of the UN Security Council to grab a second term, now he is spreading his censorship to and through them.  

 On September 15 US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield will limit questions about USUN's work, weak on China, to correspondents accredited - and not banned - by Guterres' UN. Watch this site.
