As if there wasn’t enough reason for a President to despise the UN and ban it from operating on U.S. soil, the international crowd took their crimes to a new level when they started slaughtering third world farmers in order to open up land for exploitation by “green energy” conglomerates. Taking a page out of the despot playbook, thousands of civilians in Honduras and Uganda have been forced off their land and many killed by mercenaries partially funded by the American taxpayer.
According to The New York Times the “United Nations clean-air program” is responsible for horrendous crimes:
Villagers described gun-toting soldiers and an 8-year-old child burning to death when his home was set ablaze by security officers.
“They said if we hesitated they would shoot us,” said William Bakeshisha, adding that he hid in his coffee plantation, watching his house burn down. “Smoke and fire.”
Across Africa, some of the world’s poorest people have been thrown off land to make way for foreign investors, often uprooting local farmers so that food can be grown on a commercial scale and shipped to richer countries overseas.
In Honduras 23 farmers were killed when “they tried to protect their land from being seized by a corporation who wanted to use the land to produce biofuels as part of a United Nations-accredited EU carbon trading scheme.”
As reported by The New American:
The International Federation of Human Rights (FIDH) report accuses UN-sanctioned palm oil mills of stealing farmland from Honduran natives and killing or wounding them when they attempt to defend their property. It says the companies, acting with government impunity, regularly target members of local land-rights movements who end up murdered in feigned car accidents or hunted down and shot by private security guards.
According to Paul Watson at Infowars, “the United Nations’ CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) responded to news of the killings with a collective shrug of the shoulders”:
“We are not investigators of crimes,” a board member told EurActiv. “We had to take judgments within our rules – however regretful that may be – and there was not much scope for us to refuse the project. All the consultation procedures precisely had been obeyed.”
