UN Volker Turk Fails on Gaza and Uighurs Now 2 Come Together Like Turk with UN Censors

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, March 29 –  The UN system is failing on Ukraine and Gaza, the Uighurs and Cameroon. And while it's mostly the fault of SG Antonio Guterres, his drab appointee as human rights designee Volker Turk is also to blame. And not ready for prime time, see below.

March 28, 2024: "ETGE) unequivocally condemns the recent visit by an Arab delegation to Occupied East Turkistan, occurring during the sacred month of Ramadan. This visit, orchestrated amidst the Chinese government’s relentless campaign of genocide and suppression of religious freedoms, starkly highlights the contrast between the Arab delegation’s actions and the grim reality faced by Muslims in East Turkistan.  The ETGE views this visit as a calculated propaganda effort, aimed at legitimizing China’s brutal campaign of colonization, genocide, and occupation against the Uyghur people and other predominantly Muslim peoples in East Turkistan."

The UN fails on both issues:

Not only has Volker Turk colluded in Guterres' banning of Inner City Press without due process, now he can't even handle being on UNTV, instead hiding out with the UN Correspondents Association, on whose Executive Committee China state media has a permanent seat, and Iran's IRIB is a member.

Consider: "Dear colleagues,  UNCA will host an in-person press briefing by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk this Thursday, October 12th, at 2:00 PM in the UNCA Room (S-310).  The press briefing will be followed by an off the record conversation with UNCA journalists.  UN Human Rights Chief Volker Türk is in New York this week for his Interactive Dialogue with the 3rd Committee of the General Assembly and other events. At the end of the week, he will brief UNCA journalists for the first time as High Commissioner, discuss his priorities, human rights advances, concerns and challenges as we mark the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.   Thank you for your attention.  Valeria Robecco President, United Nations Correspondents Association."
