United Nations -Among the worst warnings to dateUnited Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Human Rights Council of the global body in Geneva on Monday that the world needs to “intensify its fight against revived neo-Nazism, white supremacy, and racially and ethnically motivated terrorism. “
The head of the United Nations said: “The danger of these hate-driven movements is increasing,” he pointed out. Although he believes that these movements have posed the most significant internal challenges to several countries, they are also crossing national borders and becoming “domestic. Terrorist threats. They are becoming transnational threats.”
Guterres talked about the growing impact of racial discrimination in the world. He said: “Individuals and groups are inciting hatred fanaticism-raising funds at home and abroad, recruiting and communicating online, and traveling internationally to work together Train and build a network of thoughts they hate.”
The secretary-general said: “People often feel fear. These hate groups have been applauded for responsible people in unimaginable ways not long ago.”
For many listeners, including Richard Gowan, the United Nations director of the International Crisis Group (ICG) think tank, the goal of the last sentence is clear.
He told CBS News: “Gateres worked very hard to establish a working relationship with Trump when he took office. This is usually very difficult in my opinion. This seems to be quite subtle but firm for the former president. Refuse.”
“The deepest injustice”
The United Nations chief’s speech emphasized the “most common human rights violation: gender inequality”, which he said was “noured by the two deepest levels of injustice in the world: the legacy of colonialism over the centuries; and the enduring Inequality. The millennial patriarchy.”
Guterres welcomed President Joe Biden’s commitment to rejoining the United Nations and Mr. Biden’s choice of United Nations Ambassador,Before confirmation by the Senate, she is expected to work at the United Nations headquarters on Thursday. She advocates for human rights and diversity throughout the world.
Gohn said: “Gateres has raised these issues before, but because of Biden’s inauguration, he has more political space to emphasize these topics.”
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet told the Security Council that in the past year, another factor has led to inequality, or at least revealed inequality in society: ”Revealed the veil of the fatal reality of discrimination; serious inequality; long-term lack of funds for necessary services and rights, many policymakers have ignored these. “
In his speech to the Human Rights Council, the head of the United Nations should not only emphasize the increase in human rights violations he believes, but also unite leaders against this behavior: “When we allow anyone to deny us, we demonize all of us. Precedent.”
