Democracy Now! is broadcasting from the U.N. climate summit in Katowice, Poland, this week, where world leaders gathered to negotiate climate solutions were confronted last week by a teenage climate activist who says they are not doing enough to turn back the clock and prevent catastrophic climate change.

#Belgium's governmental coalition broke apart


The non-binding UN agreement, which would promote a common global approach to migrant flows, was initially supported by all four parties in Belgium’s coalition, only to be later rejected by the N-VA.
#Michel said on Sunday that the pact provided “the opportunity for better European and international cooperation”.

And now, it let another government crash against a wall, because the party to represent utter egoists felt like they didn't have a voice anymore, representing them, so it had to leave. Compromises are for losers, huh? And so is empathy and a sense for people who really need help as well.

On the Climate Conference in #Katowice, #Poland


Delegates said a major issue was how to reassure developing countries that richer nations would deliver on promises to help finance the cost of shifting to a lower carbon economy.

Can we really believe that poorer countries have such some high carbon emissions that need to be fought, as a paramount before more critical problems, such as social issues which we can see from our continent? It to me sounds like a common hypocrisy in the more developed nations of the Western world: They are unable to overcome their pride and confess that they are the major problem when it comes to global warming. They don't want to realise that it is them who have mainly caused this rising heat on this planet. They want to assemble every single nation in the world. I don't believe that by these poorer countries, they only talk about the South-East Asian nations such as Vi... show more

#Hamas not going to be condemned by #UN


The United Nations General Assembly has rejected a United States-sponsored resolution seeking to condemn Hamas, the Palestinian group administering the besieged #Gaza Strip.
[…]
The proposal failed to cross the threshold, with 87 nations voting in favour and 57 voting against. Thirty-three countries abstained.

I didn’t know we had so many Arab states voting against this condemnation, or at least so many Arab and other authoritarian states. Damn…

Heather #Nauert to become Haley successor in #US embassy to the #UN


Nauert, 48, is an unusual choice for the UN role given that she had little experience in government or foreign policy before joining the administration in April 2017 after several years as an anchor and correspondent for Fox News, including on the “Fox and Friends” show watched by Drumpf. Haley also lacked foreign policy experience when she took the UN posting, but she had twice been elected governor of South Carolina.

A terrific choice indeed, at least to Donnie's worthless requirements. I already Ms. Nikki Haley, she at least had basic knowledge about her job, while Ms. Nauert was an anchorwoman to Fox "News". Good luck, you brave new world.

Damn, she is tough for her age - Respect from my side


“For 25 years, countless people have come to the UN climate conferences begging our world leaders to stop emissions and clearly that has not worked as emissions are continuing to rise,” she said, according to The Guardian.
“So I will not beg the world leaders to care for our future. I will instead let them know change is coming, whether they like it or not,” she said.

#UN to evacuate #Houthi rebels


"A UN-chartered plane will arrive at Sanaa international airport Monday to evacuate 50 wounded combatants... three Yemeni doctors and a UN doctor, from Sanaa to Muscat," a coalition spokesman said overnight.

The imagination that they are going to hold talks with a Saudi-backed government in a Saudi-backed war which was also fueled by the US from the very beginning, sounds like a slap to anyone who has watched the cruelties continue under the constant view of the western world. The times used to be better, but they are always a changing.

#Reggae to be protected by the #UN as a cultural heritage


The music, which grew out of Jamaica in the 1960s thanks to artists like Toots and the Maytals, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, was added to the collection due to its "intangible cultural heritage".

A little information on the reason why it should be protected. I guess we can underscore this reasoning, Reggae is a great kind of music that has also given voice to the middle- and lower-class people of Jamaica, and with its subgenre of Ska, also reached the same classes in the outer world, like the US and England, where skins and punks found their own, rawer and faster voice.

#Trump becomes part of an Air New Zealand #christmas ad


The American boy, dressed in a two-piece suit and red sloganed cap, says he is not naughty at all and is the nicest person he knows, provoking laughter from the other children, reminiscent of the reaction to Drumpf’s speech to the U.N. General Assembly in September, when he spoke about the achievements of his administration.

This is the almost most apt depiction of Donnie. It only lacks the bad coherence/grammar, the constant insults and the pacifier. But except for that, I like the christmas ad already. :-)
If Donnie just knew about the country, he would possibly add it to Australia, as a remote island.

N #Korea is asked to allow #IAEA watchdogs to #Yongbyon


“The agency continues to enhance its readiness to play an essential role in verifying (North Korea’s) nuclear program if a political agreement is reached among countries concerned,” he said. “I again call upon (North Korea) to comply fully with its obligations under relevant resolutions of the U.N. Security Council and of the IAEA board, to cooperate promptly with the agency and to resolve all outstanding issues.”

Long story short: N Korea can only be believed to dismantle its efforts to create nuclear missiles when foreign officials can confirm this progress by having seen it with their own eyes. Otherwise, N Korea could as well be lying.
