As UNSC Prez China Bans Africa Qs Including Cameroon For Guterres, Blocks Press & Links To Ads

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, May 3 – In the United Nations from which Secretary General Antonio Guterres has banned Inner City Press 1036 days for asking about his complicity in the killing of civilians in Cameroon, poisoning them in Haiti with cholera and COVID in South Sudan, and their mass imprisonment by China in Xinjiang, on May 3 Inner City Press wrote to the Mission of China, as incoming UN Security Council president, with questions including about Cameroon, Honduras, Yemen, Western Sahara, Haiti and Libya.

 Inner City Press specifically asked Ambassador Zhang Jun who blocks Inner City Press on Twitter, to be provided the WebEx codes to be able to ask its questions:

"This is a timely request that you sent Inner City Press the pass code(s) to access your UNSC Presidency press briefing on May 3 at 3:30 pm. I have questions to ask on what you will do this month about the conflicts in Myanmar, Cameroon, Yemen and Libya - and on the sexual harassment charges against Fabrizio Hochschild on which Inner City Press first reported in April 2019, for example - Inner City Press is asking to be provided with access / the passwords to your China mission's stakeouts and press conferences this month as UNSC President.     As I hear that you may be moving the Council back into its Chamber, either way I would also like to ask you to instruct MALU  / USG-DGC Fleming to allow me to enter to cover it, for Inner City Press.    Separately, given that I have submitted to the PGA a letter and CV in connection with SG election process, to cause a debate on UN press freedom and accountability, this is a formal request that you circulate my and other candidates' letter and CVs to member states, or immediately inform me why not, given that no written rule required a member state's endorsement to run.   Please immediately confirm receipt, and provide the passcode or state why not."

No answer.

   Nothing. Not even a confirmation of receipt. Meanwhile, the Chinese Mission's Twitter profile links, as its website, to ads including for an air fryer, here.

Then Zhang Jun held a May 3 press conference with not a single question on anything in Africa, much less Cameroon.

 Instead, soft question questions first from the president of UN, the UN Censorship Alliance, softballs on Burma. Thread here. Short video here.

  And because we'll be covering them, apparently despite the censorship by China's Mission, the May 3 Program of Work has multilateralism on May 7 (when, Zhang Jun bragged, Guterres will have his one-man debate), Yemen on the 12th, Libya ICC on the 17th, Syria on April 6 and 26,  and some debates. We'll have more on this.
