UN Propaganda Chief Gallach Lies About Haiti Cholera, After Having Press Evicted, Must Go
By Matthew Russell Lee
UNITED NATIONS, October 29 — After the UN under Ban Ki-moon killed more than 10,000 people in Haiti by bringing cholera, Ban spent years dodging court papers and the issue.
The UN now says it has a new approach to Ban Ki-moon longstanding impunity for bringing cholera to Haiti. But on October 14, the UN of Ban and his Under Secretary General for Public Information Cristina Gallach had Inner City Press thrown out of of the “available” meeting on the new approach.
On October 27, at a Cristina Gallach propaganda event that Inner City Press would have covered from its office – taken – or the smaller Focus Booth – taken — Gallach dissembled on Haiti cholera, video here.
Afterward Inner City Press ran up to the UN Press Briefing Room from which Ban’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric ejected Inner City Press and allowed Gallach to oust Inner City Press without once speaking to it – and asked about Yemen.
What is clear: this corrupt head of UN Public Information must go. Watch this site.
On October 25, Philip Alston gave a press conference in the UN Press Briefing Room, at which a total of two journalists asked questions: the New York Times and Inner City Press. (Ban’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric did not even list Alston’s press conference in his office “Week Ahead.”) Periscope video here.
Inner City Press asked Alston if he saw Ban Ki-moon’s UN’s impunity for cholera in Haiti as similar to the lack of accountability for rapes, including of children, in the Central African Republic. Alston distinguished the two, saying that some of the problems with peacekeeper sexual abuse are up to member states, and praising Ban for firing Babacar Gaye.
(One wonders if Alston is aware that Gaye’s boss Herve Ladsous of France has publicly raped the rapes to “R&R” and that the abuse has continued after Gaye, from Senegal, was fired.)
Alston made an analogy to Ban backing down to Saudi Arabia and its allies and dropping the Saudi led Coalition from the Children and Armed Conflict annex on Yemen, and said that the United States is similarly pressuring Ban.
Inner City Press while quite aware of the U.S. role asked Alston if that explained for example Ban dodging legal papers, having the press thrown out and if in fact the 11th hour offer of charity might just be to attempt to clean up his legacy for a run for South Korea’s presidency.
Alston said he couldn’t speak to that, but that he had two meeting with Ban, one in January and another, just with Ban and Ban’s deputy. He said he met with the US Mission’s deputy ambassador. Inner City Press asked if he meant Isobel Coleman, present in the October 14 “available” meeting Inner City Press was thrown out of and banned from covering. An Alston staff clarified it had been with Deputy Permanent Representative Michele Sison. But what has by the US Mission’s and U.S. State Department’s role?
Alston decried both the US administration and the UN for failing to provide their legal arguments. As to the UN, this is was also refused, for example, when the UN threw Inner City Press out earlier this year. Here’s USG Gallach’s first letter and second letter; here’s her bogus response to Alston’s fellow Special Rapporteurs Kaye and Forst. Here’s the UN’s memo to the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The lawlessness is pervasive.
On October 26, Inner City Press asked Ban’s spokesman Dujarric, Video here, UN transcript here:
Inner City Press: I wanted to ask some questions about Haiti. One is about this teenage girl that was shot and killed while awaiting aid. I wanted to know whether the… the media reports say that the UN peacekeepers fired rubber bullets and teargas and that… but they… they… they believe that the girl was killed by Haitian National Police with whom the UN was working. What does the UN know about this death? And… and, again, it seems like you have this teargas and rubber bullet deployment on… on, in this case, a teenager. I mean, I guess it depends on the age. But what was the rationale for the UN using teargas and rubber bullets? Video Rating: / 5
