WHO-COP7: The venue of hypocrisy. Why was the global media kicked out?

Cop7 New Delhi

A few of my friends are into conspiracy theories, Illuminati, and the New World Order. I find discussions on these subjects very entertaining, but nothing more. However, recent events around the world are starting to make me think again. World Health Organization’s conference of parties (COP) in New Delhi, India was one of such incidents that exposed the ‘big government’.

Australia, Canada, Finland, and the UK are among a long list of countries that enforce childish laws on its citizens.

So here is what happened: journalists were kicked out from COP7 of WHO on the first day of the conference. Why, you would ask? “No comments!” This is what most of the delegates had to say when they were asked about the unanimous decision. According to Rebel Media, the conference was progressing smoothly, when suddenly the delegates voted to throw out all the journos. The meeting then happened behind closed doors where important dialogues were made. These talks will affect more than six million people. A few journalists decided to stay back to give the world daily updates.

The second day indicated the desperation of WHO, when a journalist was manhandled. Security pulled him out of the venue and escorted him out of the gates. His lanyard was seized to stop him from further attending the conference. When Rebel Media asked an official about this, his behavior clearly featured an embarrassed tone, and he kept calling the interviewer a ‘child’.

Who thought that UN-WHO would vulgarly display the truth, the hypocrisy?

We all know human rights are a joke. Despite the Right to Freedom stated in Article 2 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, you will still find child slave camps thriving secretly in Bangladesh’s UNESCO protected parks. But who thought that UN-WHO would vulgarly display the truth, the hypocrisy. On one end, they host ‘World Press Freedom Day’ and on the other, they kick out reporters from a pressing event. It’s infuriating and the bigotry doesn’t end here.

The meeting was on FCTC (Framework Convention on Tobacco Control) and I am sure a lot of ‘nanny’ decisions were being made. It outrages as because as a smoker as I have to deal with unattractive packages already. Higher taxes, like in the UK will kill my freedom of choice. I dug some more, and found out an alarming fact. Most of the countries round the world are slowly turning into nanny states. Australia, Canada, Finland, and the UK are among a long list of countries that enforce childish laws on its citizens.

Higher taxes, like in the UK will kill my freedom of choice.

I am a taxpayer, and with my money, I am being enslaved, automated. It’s like those ‘Anonymous’ posts you might have seen on Facebook: Obey-Consume-Repeat. Guess it’s time to follow the motto Rage against The Machine gave me!
