UK Parliament Publishes Full 2002 UN Report On Sex For Aid In West Africa

#Aidtoo #Metoo

Note: it wasn't even the United Nations that fully published the entire report, but the UK Parliament. That should tell you how little has changed since 2002 when the summary of the report was published and caused a storm of controversy.
The entire 2002 report UNHCR report is available here.

We were grateful that @DisobedientNews was able to speak with Asmita Naik, the co-author of the report, who told us about the resistance the report faced after it was partially published in 2002:


The UNHCR report also confirms the long-term nature of abuses - even after they were brought to the attention of UNHCR. #AidToo #MeToo

.@Disobedientnews has reported on a multitude of cases in which ‘#humanitarianaid’ was used as a cover for criminal activity, including child trafficking, sex trafficking, the production & sale of child pornography. One such ring was run from the basement of UNICEF in the 1980s.
In 2015 - THIRTEEN YEARS - after the UNHCR report, UN forces from France, Chad and Equatorial Guinea were reported to have raped and sodomized refugee children in Central Africa. The incidents were said to involve children as young as nine years old.

This 2015 atrocity involved horrific abuse by child rapists wearing UN uniforms who were reported to lure and "reward" young children with food and water.

The ultimate power imbalance is leading inexorably to the worst abuses over and over again.

#AidToo #Metoo #Childrentoo
Yet again, a secret internal UN report is alluded to but not published. Yet again nothing changes. Yet again there is impunity for atrocity in the name of "humanitarianism" funded by well-wishers and public tax funds.

#AidToo #MeToo #ChildrenToo

This sick misuse of aid was most recently demonstrated in the arrest of a self-styled missionary who mercilessly preyed on Haitian children. Press reports indicate that the abuser, James Daniel Arbaugh, lived in #Haiti for approximately 15 years.


The two-faced reality of abuse in aid work was epitomized recently by the arrest of #JoelDavis, a two-time college dropout and founder of a defunct NGO, who was nonetheless promoted to a position of extreme prestige. #AidToo

Davis worked to ‘end sexual violence in conflict,’ before his arrest for attempting to arrange the rape of a two-year-old and nine-year-old as well as charges relating to child pornography.

Who can you trust in aid work? Absolutely no one.

#AidToo. #MeToo #ChildrenInCages
We can now state with confidence that the systems put into place to aid populations in crisis have provided a framework and a cover for extreme, widespread predation.

We can also state with confidence that the situation as it exists on the ground is vastly different to the concept of ‘charity’ or ‘humanitarian work’ as it is sold to us in the developed world. #AidToo #MeToo #ChildrenToo #ChildrenInCages
Aid work is not a vehicle of charity, but is, in a very real sense, a cover for atrocity.

It is a weapon, a blunt instrument of power that is wielded to exploit the most vulnerable populations in crisis around the world.

We can now state that sentiment as fact, not opinion.

"How can we view the ongoing silence from within the confines of the Ecuadorian embassy as anything other than a political, enforced disappearance in the middle of a so-called free, liberal society?"

#Unity4J #ReconnectJulian #FreeAssange #Auspol

Although #Assange is isolated by the Ecuadorian government, it is overwhelmingly clear that as per the definition, #Ecuador is "acquiescing" to the desire of the US & UK governments.

To the tune of $500 million.

Evolution of the #RussianCollusion Narrative ─ Part Three

Latest from Richard Levine, and a fascinating read.


"Thus, a primary foundation for what became the #Russiancollusion narrative did not involve Russia, but arose due to Britain’s visions for itself."

Sidenote: Levine also cites the connection between British Intelligence, the CIA and the infamous Collin Powell WMD speech at the UN.

In #DecipherYou, @Suzi3D and myself noted SIDToday files wherein the NSA brags about influencing this same speech among others.

The Critical Difference Between Tim Canova And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

This article is intended to highlight - through contrast with Cortez - why it is so critically important that the entire US - not only Floridians - throw the full weight of their support behind Canova's campaign in these last few weeks leading up to the November election.
"Canova’s campaign accepts no corporate funds whatsoever despite the fact that it faces one of the most overtly corrupt and powerful political figures in the country." Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is the former DNC Chairwoman at the heart of rigging the 2016 primary against Sanders"

This may be the biggest pile of steaming horseshit that the @washingtonpost has ever published.

Some of the disinformation re: #Guccifer2.0 can be easily debunked by reading articles like the following:
The linked article here, authored by @with_integrity, also debunks claims made by the Mueller indictment which are cited in the above WaPo piece.

"In view of the more recent work published by the #Forensicator regarding potential media collusion with #Guccifer2.0, we are inclined to revisit an interview given by #WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief #JulianAssange in August of 2016.."

"The significance of revisiting #Assange’s statements is the degree to which his most significant claim is corroborated or paralleled by the #Forensicator’s analysis."
