The significant influence that the United Nations (UN) has acquired is at odds with the fact that part of its staff shows links with the Chinese regime, casting doubts on the transparency and impartiality that should characterize it.
The presence of Marxist-affiliated managers and the preponderance of communist countries in the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Human Rights Council (HRC) cause concern among observer groups and some countries.
Some of the most recent WHO projects have powerfully alerted dozens of countries, which have opposed them en bloc, and others are preparing to prevent them from being imposed on them in the near future.
In this regard, there have been repeated protests over the last few years due to the strong inclination towards the polemic policies of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which are usually shown in decisions that affect all countries.
One of these was presented by Human Right Watch’s China director Sophie Richardson, who questioned the Chinese regime’s intervention at the UN, suggesting that its pursuit of rights-free development and threats to freedom of expression around the world were not in the interests of its constituents.
She added: “At the United Nations, Chinese authorities are trying to rewrite norms and manipulate existing procedures not only to minimize scrutiny of the Chinese government’s conduct, but also to achieve the same for all governments.”
She also warns governments and institutions to create alliances to counterbalance this CCP trend and to break with the threat to human rights it poses.
At the same time, it notes that failure to do so “…allows Chinese authorities to further erode the existing universal human rights system — and to enjoy a growing sense of impunity”.
Another source denouncing the strong communist intervention at the UN was the Executive Director of UN Watch, Hillel Neuer. This is a non-governmental organization based in Geneva, whose mission is to monitor the performance of the United Nations “according to the criteria of its own Charter.”
Neuer told Sky News presenter Sharri Markson that the UN, like the World Health Organization (WHO), is “under the influence of China,” and that many of the officials and sub-organizations of the world’s leading body “effectively kowtow” to the communist country.
He also added that those two entities “fight any attempt to hold China accountable” for the spread of COVID-19; and that the UN is “doing absolutely nothing to support this.”
He also noted that WHO director Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was “basically spouting Chinese propaganda” when praising Chinese President Xi Jinping for his “transparency and leadership.”
Communist infiltration of WHO
One of the most powerful units of the UN is the WHO; the agency specializes in managing global health prevention, promotion, and intervention policies, and, rightly so, its Director is singled out as a communist.
The government of Ethiopia, his home country, called for him to be investigated, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Tedros showed neither integrity nor professionalism. It also said he was a member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
Tedros was head of intelligence services under the previous government-led TPLF in Ethiopia.
The TPFL is a Marxist separatist group designated as terrorists, against which the Ethiopian government launched a military offensive in November 2020 after forces allied to the group attacked federal military bases across Tigray, an ethnic region located in the north of the country.
“Tedros encourages the TPLF in his media engagements and celebrates what is presumed to be a military success of the group, besides engaging in selective outrage where he discriminately addresses the humanitarian concerns in Ethiopia,” the ministry said.
In addition, U.S. Nobel Peace Prize-nominated economist David Steinman denounced Tedros to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Steinman is calling for him to be prosecuted for genocide, given his alleged involvement in the leadership of Ethiopia’s security forces, according to The Times.
According to the complaint, Tedros “was a crucial decision maker in relation to security service actions that included killing, arbitrarily detaining and torturing Ethopians.”
Steinman states that in these cases, there was: “killing, and causing serious bodily and mental harm to, members of the Amhara, Konso, Oromo and Somali tribes with intent to destroy those tribes in whole or in part.”
At least 500 people reportedly lost their lives due to the crackdown in which Tedros allegedly participated. Steinman was an expert consultant to the U.S. National Security Council.
He also accused the WHO director of being involved in the “intimidation of opposition candidates and supporters’ which included ‘arbitrary arrest… and lengthy pre-trial detention.”
Contradictions in the UN Human Rights Council
On the other hand, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) also causes indignation because of the contradictions resulting from its actions.
In this regard, Hilary Miller, also an official of United Nations Watch, said that the HRC “is corrupted by brutal dictators and violators of human rights.”
She added: “Voting members of the Council, which include states such as Venezuela, Cuba, and China, abuse their power on the world’s top human rights body to mask their transgressions and evade criticism for their egregious records on human rights while also working in concert to pass resolutions of self-praise.
She also points to the negative role of the Chinese regime’s representation, which has belonged to the Committee since its creation in 2006.
“Their prolonged membership is absurd given that China is one of the world’s worst violators of human rights,” she said.
Miller cited a 2019 report in which the non-governmental organization, Freedom House, calls China “not free” and outlines the CCP’s violations in cracking down on journalists, implementing heavy censorship and surveillance on the Internet, and persecuting religious groups.
This persecution is evidenced by the mass detention of Uighur Muslims in so-called “political re-education centers” in Sinkiang province. And by the harassment and forced organ harvesting of members of spiritual groups such as Falun Dafa.
Human rights violations against the Uighurs are considered genocide by several countries, including the United States, yet they continue to be oppressed and lack support.
Moreover, Rushan Abbas, executive director of the Germany-based World Uyghur Congress, demanded the resignation of UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet because she had failed to investigate the situation of this minority on her recent trip to China.
Bachelet, former president of Chile and UN high commissioner for human rights since 2018, made a six-day visit last week. She was also affiliated from a young age with Chile’s Socialist Party, which is Marxist.
“The high commissioner has disgraced herself and her office by refusing to investigate China’s genocide and adopting, repeating the Chinese regime’s narrative, further cementing their propaganda in the U.N.,” Abbas said in late May.
He added: “Her comments seem custom-made for Beijing’s propaganda machine, and she neglects the duties of her office and the founding principle of the U.N.”
Bachelet said she raised with the government about the lack of independent judicial oversight in the region. She had been unable to assess the extent of what China calls “vocational education and training centers” (VETCs) in Xinjiang. Forced labor camps enslaving Uyghurs exist in this region.
In short, the UNHRC has been a problem since its inception, despite pledging to uphold “the highest standards” of human rights.
Currently, 60% of its 46 member countries— including China, Cuba, Eritrea, Pakistan, Russia, and Venezuela—fail to meet even minimum standards.
The United States now seeks to reform that branch of the U.N., having withdrawn its bid for a seat on it.
“Those with the worst human rights records should not be members of this council,” said Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Infiltration of private enterprise in the UN
Aside from the CCP’s dominance of the UN, there are also concerns about potential manipulation by private entities that fund the UN and its agencies, such as the WHO. This situation could involve serious conflicts of interest.
Such is the case of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which until last year was the second-largest donor to the World Health Organization. Its contribution is equivalent to 10% of the budget. The most significant contributor is the U.S. government, which has threatened to withdraw from the organization.
In this regard, the Director of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University (USA), Lawrence Gostin, expressed his concern: “Most of the funding Gates provides to the WHO is tied to specific agendas of the foundation [he heads].
He added: “That means that the WHO cannot itself set global health priorities, and it is beholden to a largely unaccountable private actor. Unlike states, the Gates Foundation has little democratic accountability.”
It should be noted that the Gates Foundation was one of the founding partners of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, created in 2000. It has donated more than $4 billion to Gavi, the major player distributing Covid vaccines to developing countries.
Gavi involves pharmaceutical industry leaders, governments such as Norway’s, and many public and private organizations. Among them is the controversial Open Society Foundation, founded by the no less controversial international speculator George Soros, and the World Bank.
Also, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), another UN agency based in New York, provides humanitarian aid and development. This agency purchases vaccines to immunize nearly half of the world’s children.
Sales of pandemic vaccines alone will bring in more than $117 billion between 2020 and 2021, according to the Statista platform, an unprecedented amount of money in the pharmaceutical industry.
Countries reject the UN’s overreach
Although the UN has imposed its rules on almost all countries, only recently have they expressed direct opposition to them.
The occasion arose in the face of reforms to the International Health Regulations, which included the ceding of countries’ sovereignty in health matters to the WHO.
It was 47 African countries that opposed these WHO proposals en bloc. Likewise, at least 15 U.S. congressmen promoted projects that would prevent their country from ceding its autonomy in this regard.
One of them promoted the “No WHO Pandemic Preparedness Treaty without Senate Approval Act” to prevent other WHO attempts to do so.
The Republican Senator, Ron Johnson, affirmed that “the sovereignty of the United States is not negotiable.”
“The WHO is a corrupt organization that is supposed to support international health, but instead it caves to tyrannical regimes and plays politics. The constitution is clear – any international treaty requires the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. I am proud to join my colleagues in ensuring the WHO cannot dictate health policy in America,” said Sen. Rubio.
Even Brazil stated that it would leave the WHO before allowing its population to be subjected to the new amendments.
However, the WHO has two other controversial projects pending, which will be presented later for eventual approval. They are the Pandemic Treaty, recommended by Bill Gates, and a digital identity card that would be imposed on every inhabitant of the Earth.
These globalist projects bear a strong resemblance to the Chinese regime’s social control procedures usually applied to its 1.4 billion inhabitants.
Australian parliamentarian Stephen Andrew warns about these impositions and encourages his country’s legislators to prepare for the WHO’s next steps to impose these controversial international treaties.
