In UN Human Rights Watch Limits Access to Tirana Hassan to UN Censorship Alliance Members

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

UN GATE, March 7 –
  Hypocrisy and careerism are nothing new in the UN.  Now Human Rights Watch has a new executive director, acting like so many in the UN - and the press conference will be limited to members of a group with Chinese state media on its board and Iran's IRIB as a member, which worked to throw the Press out of the UN, the United Nations Correspondents Association.

 This UNCA and its executive committee member are so arrogant they didn't even respond to an inquiry about their position on UN access from the Quinn Emanuel law firm, representing Inner City Press pro bono, here. Birds of a feather.

  Here is the promotion:  "Human Rights Watch is pleased to invite members of the United Nations Correspondents Association to an in-person press conference at UN Headquarters on Thursday, March 9, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. EST.  In her debut press appearance at UN headquarters, Human Rights Watch’s acting executive director, Tirana Hassan, will discuss and take questions on the main human rights challenges for 2023. The topics will include HRW’s work on Ukraine, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Syria, Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine, climate change, and poverty and inequality. Who: Tirana Hassan, acting executive director Louis Charbonneau, UN director  When: Thursday, March 9, 2023. Where: UNCA Room (S-310) at UN Headquarters.  This press conference is open to all UNCA members."

 Notice the list does not mention the genocide against the Uighurs committed by China, multiply represented on HRW's partner UNCA's board, much less Cameroon or UN censorship.

    Open to UNCA members, largely state media and retirees. HRW's UN rep also worked to get Inner City Press banned from the UN, and made false copyright claims to cover up his role. Will Tirana Hassan be any different? An appeal is pending, here - it is a litmus case. This is today's UN - we'll have more on this.
