2000 allegations of sexual abuse over the past 12 years
A report compiled by theAssociated Pressdetailed nearly 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse by UN peacekeepers and other personnel over the past 12 years, yet the majority of perpetrators escaped jail time due to lax enforcement by their respective governments of origin.
According to an internal UN documentobtainedby AP, at least 134 peacekeepers from Sri Lanka abused nine Haitian children in a sex ring from 2004 to 2007. While 114 peacekeepers were sent back to Sri Lanka following the report’s release, none were ever imprisoned. (more…)
The United Nations says it aims to resettle more than 450,000 Syrian refugees, about one-tenth of those now in neighbouring countries, by the end of 2018.
The UN refugee agency is urging countries worldwide to take in Syrians for resettlement as well as for humanitarian reasons of family reunification, medical treatment or scholarships to complete their studies.
More than 4.8 million Syrian refugees have fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt to escape a war that has killed more than 250,000 people since 2011 and left 13.5 million inside Syria in need of aid.
An additional half a million people are estimated to have fled to Europe, especially Germany, since early 2015.
The legacy of enslavement in the United States of America remains a serious challenge as there has been no real commitment to recognition and reparations for people of African descent, a United Nations expert panel has said today at the end of its second official visit* to the country.
From 9 to 29 January, a delegation of the UN Working Group of experts on people of African descent visited Washington D.C., Baltimore, Jackson- Mississippi, Chicago, and New York City to address current concerns, and assess progress made in the fight agains racial discrimination, Afrophobia, xenophobia, and protecting and promoting the human rights of African- Americans.
“Despite substantial changes since the end of the enforcement of Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, ideology ensuring the domination of one group over another continues to negatively impact the civil, political, economic, social, cultural and environmental rights of African Americans today,” said human rights expert Mireille Fanon Mendes France, who currently heads the group of experts.
However, they expressed serious concerns about the police killings, the presence of police in schools, and violence targeting the African American community with impunity and racial bias in the criminal justice system, mass incarceration and the criminalization of poverty which disproportionately affects African Americans.
During its eleven-day mission, the Working Group’s delegation heard from civil society, researchers and families of victims of police killings about racial discrimination and Afrophobia.
They also promoted the International Decade for People of African Descent, which runs from 2015 to 2024 and aims both to highlight the contribution of people of African descent tosocieties and strengthen national, regional and international cooperation to ensure the human rights of people of African descent are respected, promoted and fulfilled.
TOKYO (AP) ” Japan should be doing more to help with the global catastrophe of asylum seekers, the head of the U.N. refugee body said Wednesday.
Japan is a major donor of humanitarian aid but accepts very few refugees each year, and the country’s reluctance to allow in more is raising controversy given the crises festering in Europe and elsewhere.
Antonio Guterres, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, told reporters in Tokyo that he was discussing the problem with Japanese officials and “would like the Japanese government to push its actions … to increase the number of people resettled in Japan, and especially now to look into the humanitarian admissions of Syrians.”
Japan needs to “progressively improve the asylum system here … to make it more effective in the reception and in the recognition and integration of refugees in Japanese society,” Guterres said. He also noted that Japan’s location far away from the front lines of the crisis was a factor behind the scant number of refugee arrivals.
The National Front has sent the following email to Devoy, our Race Relations Commissioner
Dear Ms. Devoy, we bring your attention to the following;
The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide 1948, defines genocide as “any of a number of acts committed with the intent to destroy in whole or in part a national, ethnic, RACIAL or religious group: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; DELIBERATELY INFLICTING ON THE GROUP CONDITIONS OF LIFE calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.”
As race relations commissioner you have been promoting MASSIVE non-White Immigration, and Assimilation/Integration & Diversity programs.
All these “conditions” lead to WHITE GENOCIDE!
China has taken steps to force immigrate and assimilate themselves into Tibet.
This has routinely been labeled Genocide by the UN and “Anti-racist” groups.
There are many similarities between Tibetan Genocide and the Genocide you are forcing on White New Zealanders.
The National Front demands that you stop promoting your anti-White Genocidal policies.
