The UN has admitted that it played a role in the cholera outbreak in Haiti
Finally.
By Fiona MacDonald

The United Nations (UN) has finally acknowledged that it played a role in the cholera outbreak in Haiti that began nearly six years ago, and has killed thousands of people, and infected almost 800,000.

The Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon, admitted for the first time last week that the organisation was involved in starting the outbreak, and “needs to do much more” to fix the problem.

But a confidential internal report obtained by The New York Times took things one step further, concluding that the epidemic “would not have broken out but for the actions of the United Nations”.

..Tumblr fue por mucho tiempo mi sostén y desahogo. Fue dónde me expresaba y sacaba un poco de todo lo que me hacia mal, sin eso no se donde estaría… Encontré un lugar donde podia escribir una parte de mi. La mas destruida, la que nadie conocía. Escribí todo lo que callaba. Escribi lo que me rompía. Hoy entiendo que necesito vivir. Necesito ser feliz. Y depende de mi buscar esa felicidad o permitir que llegué, por eso hoy decido dejar atras todo lo que me destruía. Todo lo que no me permitía crecer como persona. Y les digo que ustedes también lo intente. No importa lo vacios que se sientas, lo solos que estén, solo se necesitan a ustedes para ser feliz. Intentelo! Yo se que pueden. Yo pude, yo que llegué a fondo. Yo que me encontré con la soledad y depresión en persona. Por eso creo en ustedes. Sonrían de verdad. Rían con sinceridad. Lloren de felicidad. Disfruten lo que tienen, cuidenlo y valorenlo.. Una parte de mi, la mas triste, se queda aca. La otra parte va a vivir y ser feliz. Gracias por todo su apoyó. Gracias por estar. Gracias por todo.
..Esta permitido caerse pero es obligatorio pararse.

Japan Responds To U.N. Game Ban Request: Fictional Characters Aren’t Real

Banning any material that contains sexual violence against women would effectively close down a lot of publishing houses that actually hire a lot of women, thus putting lots of women out of work… all so that the United Nations can feel good about pretending to protect fictional women.

More than anything, it makes the United Nations look racist for not understanding Japanese culture, it makes them look ignorant for not having looked into the employment statistics relating to women in the creative arts field in Japan, and it makes them look sexist for trying to put women out of work.

UN group compares police killings to lynchings.

A United Nations working group has a damning comparison that United States law enforcement might want to note. In a recent report, the U.N. Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent likened police brutality to racially motivated hate crimes of the 19th and 20th centuries.

“Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching,” the report read.

As the Washington Post reported, the Equal Justice Initiative estimates that 3,959 African-Americans across the south were killed in “racial terror lynchings” between 1877 and 1950. By comparison, more than 170 black people have died in police shootings in 2016 so far.

The UN group’s report called for specific action in the fight against police killings.
