By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
5 candidates for the post of Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) debated publically for the first time on July 18, 2016. Click on the following link to watch that debate: https://youtu.be/3WqFUVpoZQs
Antonio Guterres, the present secretary general, said that, along with being a good communicator, the post requires that the candidate have substance imbedded in his communication (17:45 of the video). Secretary General Guterres has missed that opportunity by not having put back Puerto Rico on the UN list of colonies.
The United States government lied to the UN in 1953, when it alleged that Puerto Rico had acquired self-government via the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of 1952. The UN removed Puerto Rico from the list, but has never put her back on it. Guterres has not corrected that, during the 3 years that he has been in office. That looks to me like business as usual! http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
The UN will continue to be run for the 1% no matter who the secretary general is. The people are the only ones who could stop the crimes against humanity. The people in the 193 nations that are represented in the UN must protest permanently to make their nations represent 100% of their citizenship. When that happens, the UN will automatically play an important role in maintaining world peace. In the meantime, it’s just an illusion! www.TodosUnidosDescolonizarPR.blogspot.com
The UN is a bad joke.
