UN Censorship Alliance Seeks Re-election By Those Allowed in by RSVP Paying to Praise UN

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE, Nov 8 – The United Nations under Antonio Guterres only wants to allow media coverage by its fans, even if many of them don't report at all.

After having critical Inner City Press thrown out on July 3, 2018, Guterres and his head of accreditation / censorship Melissa Fleming used the COVID pandemic to restrict the entry of most of those still accredited, and limit access to those to whom they gave office space: state media and retirees.

  Now those on the outer orbit of UN sycophantry are being shaking down for $100 to enter, by RSVP, to vote to re-elect those who didn't fight for them, like Guterres' stolen second term.

Leaked to Inner City Press from several disgusted members of the United Nations Correspondents Association: "UNCA will be holding Elections for its officers and board for 2022 in November, and the UNCA Executive Committee has decided on the following arrangements and schedule.  Nominations for President, Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer and the nine Committee at Large members will begin Tuesday, November 9th and will run until Tuesday, November 16th.    Due to the current access restrictions still in place at UNHQ because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Committee has approved the following election procedures for this year:  CANDIDACY   If you want to be a candidate, please send an email to contactus [at] unca [dot] com with the subject line "2022 UNCA Nomination Ballot" stating the following: Name  Affiliation The Post you are seeking (in the Executive Committee) Names of the two (2) sponsors from different media organizations who are current UNCA members & must confirm or sign your ballot.  Resident correspondents (white P pass) in good standing with their dues can present their nomination ballot (available in the UNCA office) from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm.  For non-resident correspondents (green P pass) that have limited access to the building, UNCA will be accepting nomination ballots via email as explained above. (Must also be in good standing with their dues).  The ballots can be signed by having your sponsors come in person to the UNCA office OR by having your sponsors send an email confirming their sponsorship of your ballot.   The final list of candidates for the 2022 UNCA Executive Committee will be sent out to all members via email and posted on the bulletin board.  

VOTING  In order to vote for the 2022 UNCA Executive Committee, your annual UNCA dues must be paid. If you need to pay dues for 2021 please visit the UNCA Office with your cash or check for $100 or use the following link to pay by debit/credit card.

  Voting for the 2022 UNCA Executive Committee will take place on Monday, November 22nd, Tuesday, November 23rd, and Wednesday, November 24th from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in the UNCA conference room.   Absentee ballots for members who will not be able to come to UNHQ during the voting dates will be available following the closing and posting of the nomination ballots on Wednesday, November 17th, Thursday, November 18th and Friday, November 19th.  Since we do not have the capacity or resources to create an online voting procedure, voting will only be possible in-person in the UNCA room.

  For non-resident correspondents without access to the building, UNCA has coordinated with MALU to authorize a limited number of Green P's each day to enter the UN as long as they send an RSVP 24 hours in advance to UNCA and include the date they wish to visit the voting polls in the UNCA conference room (absentee or regular voting dates). 

* please keep in mind that the UN has enforced vaccination requirements for all media to enter UNHQ.  Final election results will be posted on the UNCA bulletin board on Wednesday, November 24th. "  What a scam. The incumbent candidates did not even deign to response to a polite letter from law firm Quinn Emanuel asking about the fairness of banning Inner City Press.

  We'll have more on this.
