After UN Staff Call Guterres Racist He Rebuffs Qs On Japan Hiring and DSG Op Ed Absence

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

UN GATE, June 15 – The United Nations in the time of Antonio Guterres has devolved not only into corruption and censorship, but also racism. 

  Inner City Press has published Guterres memo to UN staff to not join the George Floyd protests, here, and noted that his Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric's "press briefings," as controlled by UN Global Communicator Melissa Fleming, have no African journalists, no questions about South Sudan or DRC or Cameroon, which killed journalist Samuel Wazizi. There was Fleming's precessor stealing member states' money meant for Swahili broadcasting, and recent colonial "LOOTING IN MIDTOWN: MY ACCOUNT."

   On June 8, when Guterres was asked the question of his own staff and ex-staff's view of him as a colonial racist, he rebuffed the questions and did not answer, on way from mansion to Mercedes. Video here.

  Now more UN staff have complained to Inner City Press about hiring discrimination in Guterres' UN, including in the Security Council Affairs Division, giving rise to this question which Guterres, Farhan Haq and Eri Kaneko have refused to answer: "on deadline describe the recruitment process for the P4 Political Affairs Officer in the secretariat Branch of SCad and whistleblowers' complaints to Inner City Press that it is destined in advance for Hirofumi Goto    Also relatedly provide UN response to "Japan pushes for more top UN positions"  No answer.

After Inner City Press on June 13 published yet another actual UN staff letter to the editor trashing Guterres' UN as racist, past midnight on June 15 the UN sent out for "recirculation" a depressing and archaic letter praising the Dear Leader: "United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres stated that “we need to raise our voices against all expressions of racism and instances of racist behaviour”.... We welcome the initiatives by the Secretary-General to strengthen the global anti-racism discourse, which would address systemic racism at all levels, as well as its impact wherever it exists, including in the United Nations Organization itself... (*) All signatories listed below are senior UN officials who hold the rank of Under Secretary- General. They signed this Op Ed in their personal capacity: Tedros ADHANOM GHEBREYESUS Mahamat Saleh ANNADIF Zainab BANGURA Winnie BYANYIMA Mohamed Ibn CHAMBAS Adama DIENG François Lounceny FALL Bience GAWANAS Gilbert HOUNGBO Bishar A. HUSSEIN Natalia KANEM Mukhisa KITUYI Jeremiah Nyamane MAMABOLO Phumzile MLAMBO-NGCUKA Mankeur NDIAYE Parfait ONANGA-ANYANGA Moussa D. OUMAROU Pramila PATTEN Vera SONGWE Hanna TETTEH Ibrahim THIAW Leila ZERROUGUI."  This was sent out by a nice UN staffer who made money from the bribes of Ng Lap Seng's South South News. Depressing. Guterres (and some of the above, for example Francois Fall who justifies the killing of Anglophones in Cameroon as "extremists") must go.

And another question: Where is even Guterres' Deputy Amina J. Mohammed on this list? Inner City Press on the morning of June 15 asked Guterres, Haq, Kaneko AND MOHAMMED: "Immediately state why Amina J. Mohammed is not a signatory to "On the Black Lives Matter Protests and other Mass Demonstrations against Systemic Racism and Police Brutality - Joint reflexions by United Nations Senior African Officials" and describe any and all Secretariat (and separately, SG Guterres and USG Fleming) involvement in soliciting, drafting and circulating the letter / op-ed." No answers. More to follow.
