How Can We Stop the Upcoming WHO Treaty? Dr. Naomi Wolf Weighs In

"Want to ask you, what can we do to actually put brakes on the World Health Organization world health assembly? Is there still time left on the clock? What can be done? Yeah, well, these are the right questions to ask. I just want to say, I'm scared of that, too. Of course they're going to have their own police force in Canada when Trudeau declared martial law for 24 hours. There were extremely violent police slash military figures abusing protesters and they were un badged, right? They didn't police officer will have his name or her name. Because they're accountable. But these were unidentifiable, really scary people. Same thing in France. You're seeing them all over the world. And there are entities like Blackwater now called Chi, which can send militaries all over the world. So it's the easiest thing in the world to have these mercenaries come over the border now from Canada, or else I've raised this morning before their military age men pouring over the border from places like Afghanistan and Ukraine and the easiest thing in the world to send them to God knows where and to arm them to assist the World Health Organization. So I've been saying as you know for some time that we're at war, I don't want to be a war, but a war is being waged on us. And we have to face the fact. So what can be done? Well, first of all, I can not believe I'm saying this a lifelong former Democrat and child of hippies, but thank God for the Second Amendment. Because one reason that the United States is not entirely enslaved like Australia or Shanghai or Canada in many ways. We're relatively freer compared to those countries is that we have, you know, millions of owners of guns. And I'm a peaceful person. This should not be taken out of context. But it is harder to subjugate an armed population. And this is why our founders gave us the Second Amendment. For exactly times like these. They knew that it was harder to subjugate an armed population. But may that be the worst case scenario, I really hope that it does not devolve into Civil War, which is really what the next thing is in history. When you have an occupying force, which is what the WHO will be by next week. But there are very important things you can do at the state level. Sorry. New Hampshire passed a raft of really good bills in one of them is a Bill where basically they said to the federal government if, you know, you can try all you want to issue federal regulations or laws that are unconstitutional, but New Hampshire is not going to enforce them.

"Turn to Ukraine if we could as I said you remember the foreign relations committee as well There's a lot of talk we're hearing right now From the United States but also from Europe from the UN even about the blockade of grain and other foodstuffs coming out of Odessa over there Is there any realistic prospect of opening up that blockade There are reports in the British press release that maybe they might even send in warships to force the issue Well that would be great It is a crime what is happening in Ukraine and on so many levels But one is that the Russians have effectively made Ukraine into a landlocked country by blocking these ports into the Black Sea Odessa being the single most important one recalled that some years Ukraine is the number one exporter of sunflowers and sunflower oil number two in terms of wheat And the country's particularly in the developing world in Africa and elsewhere depend on this and yet because of this war is war that was totally unprovoked totally illegal and now brutal from Russia These ports are being blocked And by the way they have to be blocked on both sides in essence the Ukrainians are putting mines in place to avoid Russian warships from coming into Odessa and then the Russians are doing their own We're not quite sure exactly what it is but mining to avoid the Ukrainians using these ports So yes it would be great to have what I call humanitarian corridor there to at least allow these grain shipments to get out The grain bins and Ukraine.

John Zmirak and Eric Reflect on the Iraq Invasion

"There are certain things you can't make up. I mean, I want to frame this again for people who aren't paying attention because maybe they're not, they're not tracking, I was for the Iraq invasion back when. You were against it. And I remember talking to you and not understanding, I thought, aren't all conservatives for this isn't Saddam Hussein, a monster. And by the way, of course, he was a truly evil monster. There's no doubt about that. But it didn't occur to me at the time that there are reasons not to attack Saddam Hussein and so on and so forth. So I was for it. All these years later, thanks to not just John's mirac, but Donald Trump, we have had a reevaluation. And I think that people now realize not only was it wrong, but it was a disaster on many levels. And then we start understanding that all the people who got us into the many messages in which we are today also got us into the mess of the Iraq War. It's the neocons. It's not magga people. It's not people who want to put America first. It's globalists. It is really tremendously wicked. And so here you have George Bush, do the ultimate Freudian slips of all time. So wonderful. It's the sort of thing that Will Ferrell would make up on SNL or something. But no, no, this actually happened. It's so great. I mean, the underlying reality is grotesque. We are, we killed between 507 100,000 civilians in our invasion of Iraq, which was based on false intelligence and made up junk intelligence that the neocons were shoving past the FBI and putting straight into The White House. There were hundreds of experts saying there are no weapons of mass destruction. The UN inspector said there are no weapons of mass destruction. Nobody had any real evidence of weapons of mass distraction. Colin Powell gets goes in front of the UN with doctored photos that don't represent what he says they are. Condoleezza Rice says, we don't want the next smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud in Manhattan. They use our trauma over 9 11 to make us think that Saddam Hussein is building nukes and is going to smuggle them into America. They make us think he was involved in 9 11, which he wasn't. They make us think he was getting uranium, which he couldn't. I mean, it was just this for rago of lies. And I guess Eric, you're a nicer person, maybe because you grew up in Connecticut, you didn't think your own political leaders of your own party were lying to you to get back. No, of course I

"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. The health and well-being of many Palestinian refugees is at risk of greater funding is not found soon to offset higher costs caused by the global economic crisis. The UN relief agency for Palestinians unruh said on Tuesday in Lebanon where there are around 480,000 refugees registered with unre, its medical director doctor akihiro seta said that the agency was the only solution for primary and lifesaving hospital care for these displaced people, but medicines now cost more because of price inflation and hospital costs for those with mental health problems in Lebanon has risen from $90 per night before the current economic crisis to $200 per night now. Doctor sata explained, and he added that in the Gaza Strip around a year since deadly clashes between Israel and Hamas, the economy is still deteriorating, and life is not coming back for around 1 million Palestinian refugees. Many Palestinian refugees like a Gaza in the mental health. They become sick, simply because their life is tough. Their life is very difficult to survive. And so the many parasites they may fall sick, not only because of the access to the health services, but access to dignity and life. That's the main cause of the air conditions for the bias and refugees. The under officials said that in the next quarter, more than $72 million was needed for Gaza alone to provide the food assistance that people require. The monkeypox outbreak that's been confirmed by the UN health agency in 16 countries and several regions of the world can still be contained and the overall risk of transmission is low, it said on Tuesday. Latest data from member states provided to the World Health Organization or WHO indicates that there have been more than 250 cases of confirmed and suspected cases of monkeypox to the 22nd of May, according to the UN health agency, this monkeypox outbreak has been transmitted primarily by close skin to skin contact among men who have sex with men, although the virus can affect anyone, stressed doctor Rosamund Lewis, who heads WHO emergencies programs, smallpox secretariat, doctor Lewis told journalist in Geneva that smallpox vaccines could be used to provide protection against monkeypox as the two viruses are similar. The world health assembly where we are today has mandated in 1980 at the time that it was declared that smallpox was eradicated. The world health assembly members WHO member states mandated WHO to maintain a vaccine stockpile. So this has been the case. However, it's important to realize that it's been 40 years and the stockpiles may need to be refreshed. They certainly need to be revisited and WHO has been working on that and is looking at that also now. Finally, to Nicaragua, where alleged mass rights abuses since April 2018 are in the spotlight after the appointment on Tuesday of a panel of three independent rights experts who will report back to the Human Rights Council in Geneva. The development follows repeated alerts by the UN rights office OH CHR about shrinking freedoms in Nicaragua, where widespread protests in 2018 met with a violent clampdown, forcing thousands to flee to neighboring Costa Rica, inside Nicaragua, media outlets and political parties have been shut down, while journalists and activists have been imprisoned, according to OH CHR, and since 2018, more than 200 civil organizations have been shut down in the country, including 137 so far this year. Earlier this month the UN rights office also condemned the introduction of a new law that forced NGOs to seek government approval for their activities. Daniel Johnson, UN news..

Hunter Biden Reportedly Earned $11M From Foreign Business Deals

"NBC. Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive proves $11 million in payments from China. And what are those two stories have to do with one another? You're trying to tell me that NBC would send a bunch of reporters to look through Hunter Biden's laptop to create a negative headline. If Democrats were doing super well right now, remember the entire probe criminally into Hunter Biden is nakedly political for the sole and intended purpose and fact to try to make Joe Biden removable. Now Joe Biden does have an insurance policy. Joe Biden's handlers were very smart in one way. You might say Charlie, what is that insurance policy? The insurance policy is not like the Peter struck stroke smirk or the Lisa page lover from the FBI. None of the insurance policy is that they decided to pick an even more unpopular person to become vice president. Which is if the regime wants to remove Joe Biden assail boy, we got to deal with the that's not good. The Biden team realized that the only thing less popular than Joe Biden. So they got a decision to make, they say, well, at least we can control Biden because hunter did crimes all across the world. NBC News, Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he his firm earned $11 million from 2013 to 2018. This is a common technique that is executed by deep state Democrats against politicians they don't like. Andrew Cuomo fell victim to this, Jesse Jackson junior fell coma to this. Fell victim to this. Rod Blagojevich fell victim to this. It is a common technique, which is to use all of the previously rumored criminal activity of a Democrat, bring it to the surface to try to get that Democrat to heal or to foose. Dog term I used yesterday to obey, and if they become politically un useful, which we just are showing their Joe Biden is so unpopular, you have a means of removing him or a means of making sure that he does not run for office.

"So I mentioned it got to talk about it. That is the now the most successful documentary of the modern age in just over a week, it's netted 10 million gross. It has had a million downloads. It is 2000 meals. I'm in it guys full disclosure. I've got a stake in it, but it is so important. Got to ask you, this told us we were conspiracy theorists. That's nothing happened. We've got in just the areas where Greg Phillips Catherine, engelbrecht and the 2000 mules team looked. We have at least 400,000 illegal ballots that were being trafficked by NGOs by individuals who went to 27 drop boxes in 36 hours at 2 a.m. 3 a.m. what is your reaction to this? Is this a game changer? Will it affect those who are un political or in the middle potentially? What it needs to change is any state that still has a law that allows mail out ballots to everybody, ballot harvesting or any of these ways that our ballots don't go from one person's hand to the election officials directly should be outlawed. Now, I can understand mail in balloting at some level if you've got controls like states that do it well, is okay. But the states that just mail them out and these NGOs scarf them up, I got to tell you, in 2019, November, my wife and I took information to the Republican National Committee about ballot harvesting in California. Concrete concrete showed that they were doing it. They were registering people at Starbucks with addresses at dog parks, at places like this. We gave them the dataset that showed this. And they were like, that's great. We're going to go buy some 32nd attack ads.

Was the 2020 Election Fraud the Perfect Crime?

"Catherine dinesh had this brilliant idea to fly all of us Salem hosts who weren't involved in the collecting of the data out to California to see a sample of what you and Greg had done. And then to get our reaction on tape and then to add it to the movie 2000 mules. One thing that my daily beloved Dennis prager had problems with and I had to explain to him on camera is how this is the perfect crime because of the envelope into which the mail in ballot is placed, which is put into the Dropbox or mailed into the polling station. Which means when there's nobody there physically voting, the envelope arrives, the ballot is taken out of the envelope that identifies who should have sent it, who it belongs to. And once it's taken out, that's it. Chain of custody is broken because there's no way to connect that ballot with who was supposed to have filled it out. In that way, isn't this the perfect crime Catherine? Yes, absolutely. And never more so than in 2020 when they removed the very few checks and balances that did exist. They removed to security standards around signature verification. They were quick to take those ballots out of the drop boxes and mix them into the general population of early voting at polling places. And so there was literally no way to unring the bill.

"Elon Musk is clearly having fun on Twitter. And it's nice. I mean, if you're gonna spend $44 billion to buy the platform, you may as well have a little fun. And I think what we're seeing from Musk is a little bit more self expression than we're used to because I've followed Musk for a while and typically he was he would post things that were going on with SpaceX and things going on with Tesla once in a while he'd offer a comment, but it looks like he's, well, I can't say letting his hair down. He's got a little bit of the king Kim Jong-un style. So he can't really let his hair down. But he's having fun. And he's really showing by example what it means to have free speech. By which I mean that you've got all these people bashing Elon Musk. In fact, here is a comment by someone on Twitter. They say that Elon Musk has invited the world to abuse them verbally on his own property. That's my definition of a gracious and generous host. And Elon Musk has a rye, but very telling response, he goes, freedom of speech means freedom of speech.

"This is Connor Lenin from UN news. Demonstrating the wide arranging consequences of the climate crisis, the UN Human Rights Council has appointed the first ever special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights in the context of climate change. Ian fry, who is of Australian and Tuvalu heritage, teaches environmental policy at the Australian national university in Canberra. As UN special rapporteur, he'll be tasked with studying how climate change affects the full enjoyment of human rights and recommend ways to prevent these effects. In an interview with the UN's Julia dean, mister fry explained why the Human Rights Council created his new role. While there are many sort of impacts that climate change has on people. Enormous sort of spectrum of issues connect human rights and climate change. So people are affected by severe weather events, people are affected by droughts. And a whole host of sort of impacts that connect with human rights. And of course, people are being displaced daily as a consequence of climate change. But there's also another interesting factor to it that actions to address climate change can also have human rights implications. For instance, mining of minerals to produce batteries for electric vehicles, deep seabed mining, for minerals. Even hydroelectric dams can have human rights impacts. So it's not only the impacts of climate change, but it's also the impacts are doing things about climate change. And there's also issue of just transition of getting people out of employment in the fossil fuel industry into other industries is a human rights issue. And there are many that don't relate to the concept of human rights or for that matter, climate change, how do you have this discussion going forward? Well, it's a matter of, you know, having that making that connection that people's lives every day lives are impacted by climate change. And so, you know, it's not too difficult to make that connection. You know, that most people are aware that lives are changing as a consequence of climate change. And certainly, you know, youth groups are certainly bringing that to the fore at the moment. And how does your mandate relate to other instant international instruments, for instance, they sendai, disaster, risk reduction framework, the SDGs, and other environment and human rights instruments..

Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, Martin Griffiths, the emergency relief chief, tells us that millions of ordinary people's lives are hanging by a thread. In South Sudan, the UN refugee agency has put the spotlight on communities who are using mud and anything else they can lay their hands on just to keep the floodwater at bay.

UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet has told the Human Rights Council. The UN high commissioner for human rights also told the council on Wednesday that her office had verified well over 70 incidents in which medical facilities have been damaged, including 50 hospitals. In many areas across the country, people urgently need medical supplies, food, water, shelter, and basic household items, miss Bachelet said. In South Sudan, UN humanitarians have warned that villagers are using their bare hands to build mud walls to protect their homes from flooding. The situation is expected to worsen when the wet season begins in around a month, UN refugee agency, UNHCR said on Tuesday.

You've got elderly women. You've got vulnerable populations who are basically grabbing mud and trying to build up the berms around their villages. And this is during summer. This is during the dry season. The wet season hasn't even started yet. South Sudan is still struggling to overcome the deadly aftermath of Civil War that followed independence in 2011, it also had its worst flooding on record in 2021, which impacted more than 830,000 people.

I think we're seeing that in border countries too, but the demand is fast outstripping any type of supply. So what can UNICEF actually do on the ground? What's your mission today? What's the first thing you're doing right now? First and foremost, it's through support for those people at the border. We've got trucks arriving into Poland.

These are critical critical elements in that that lifesaving humanitarian support that was UNICEF's focus in the east. We now try to spread that across the country. That's very difficult.

These days, we have seen with horror, rockets raining down on Ukraine cities and hundreds of people killed or injured. In the words of shabby among two from the UN refugee agency, there is also a fast growing refugee emergency. Inspired by his own years of exile to unpack the anti immigrant politics that still plague us today, bertold Brecht wrote, refugee conversations. This is a dialog between zero and kale, two refugees fleeing political violence. They meet at a train station cafe in Helsinki. In the process, the two learn to trust one another and finally, on the last page, they decide to do something together. In the dialog by breath, the two ordinary men become extraordinary, and this is where the text optimism is to be found. In its belief in change, James L there from UNICEF was speaking to us from Ukraine. He said he saw grandmother's cooking food in the road, offered in a bed to those at the train station. Teenage girls making cookies and knocking on car doors, offering them to people who've come and spent three days covering the 500 kilometers from Kyiv. We need hope and optimism Daniel, and at the same time always keep in mind Brecht's phrase that resounds like thunder. War is like love. It always finds a way. Today we have to start a global refugee conversation, together, and with equally solidarity without any discrimination based on gender, race, religion, or ethnicity. It seems obvious to say, but it is a story of human beings to arriving in dark times, with dignity. I refugee is a refugee regardless of his or her skin color.

WFP said that food prices have more than doubled across much of Yemen this year, while fighting across multiple front lines continues to force families to flee. UN news. The headlines there, thanks to mexica and now to this week's interview, which is with nashad shamin Khan of Fiji. She's the outgoing president of the Human Rights Council, which meets for three scheduled sessions throughout the year, plus any number of special sessions. If member states are concerned about a specific situation anywhere in the world. This year there have been 5 special Sessions on Myanmar, the occupied Palestinian territories, Afghanistan, Sudan, and Ethiopia, all of which has made for a very busy 12 months for the council's president, whose job is to help countries implement their human rights obligations as she tells us now. Of course, one of the most important roles of the council is to address immediate and important human rights violations around the world. And I think the council despite the COVID-19 pandemic has responded very quickly, very effectively and in a very inclusive manner to those human rights violations. But in addition to that role of the council, we have to remember that the council is really helping states on journeys to implement human rights obligations in their countries through mechanisms like the special procedures as well as a universal periodic review. But overall, the council also has an advocacy role. An advocacy role on human rights issues specifically, but then globally, how does human rights? How do human rights fit with a peace and security pillars of the United Nations? What is its role of the Security Council? What is its role in the General Assembly? These are important issues about ideologically in relation to the work of the council, but also very practically. I think that despite the pandemic and all of the difficulties which are faced us in this very difficult time in history, I think the council has done very well indeed. You mentioned the special sessions and by the end of this year we will have had 5, which is a record in the what 15 plus years, since the Human Rights Council was established. You also mentioned the pandemic and the COVID crisis. Critics of the United Nations, we often hear it they say, well, it's just a talking shop, but go and tell me about the technical support, perhaps that the council offers by way of its resolutions to everyone in the world. I think the relevance of the COVID-19 pandemic can be divided in three ways. The first is the importance of the council in the discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic. On the implementation of human rights everywhere. So what is the relationship between particular rights? And what happened to us as a global community in the midst of COVID? So we started that conversation in 2020. As soon as we knew that we were facing a pandemic, the council responded very quickly and adopted a resolution asking the high commissioner to update the council on the impact of COVID-19 on human rights everywhere. And I think that very quick response indicates that the council was aware of the importance of the relationship between COVID and human rights. But secondly, I think very importantly, there was some substantive issues from the COVID-19 pandemic. And one was the access to vaccines. This is a conversation that is happening everywhere in the world. Whether within countries, we have an equal access to vaccines by all communities, especially those which are most vulnerable. And secondly, are we having an equitable transfer of vaccines amongst countries?.

They're worrying reports that many of those detained have not been informed of the reasons for their detention. Nor have they been brought before a court of law or other tribunal to review the reasons for their detention and have not been formally charged. In a related development, the secretary general has repeated his call for the immediate release of UN staff members attained in the country. Mister Guterres explained in a statement issued by his spokesperson on Wednesday that the organization's workers were being held without charge and no specific information has been provided regarding the reasons for their arrest. UN staff carry our critical and impartial work in Ethiopia, the UN chief insisted before warning that reported arbitrary arrests and attentions only serve to widen divisions and resentment between groups. All parties to the conflict should prioritize the welfare of civilians and put down their weapons now mister Guterres said. COVID-19 news now, and a massive boost for access to lifesaving coronavirus medicines for low and middle income countries. The welcome development comes after UN global health agency unit said on Tuesday that it had helped to reach a voluntary licensing agreement for a Pfizer antiviral treatment, meaning that the drug can now be produced genetically worldwide. The medicine which has taken orderly is designed to be administered with another antiviral retainer. Under the terms of the unit led deal, manufacturers will be able to supply both drugs to 95 countries, covering more than 50% of the world's population. This includes all low and lower middle income countries and upper middle income countries in sub Saharan Africa. Unit had said that Pfizer will not receive royalties on sales in low income countries. Turning to the UN's battle against tobacco use, the World Health Organization signals science of a pivotal downward shift in the numbers of users globally. Citing new data, the WHO welcomed the news that there are 200 million fewer tobacco users today compared to 2015. That means that 1.3 billion.

On the prohibition of nuclear weapons which entered into force in january given the ongoing developments in afghanistan he also spoke about how kazahkstan is assisting scores of afghans living and studying their lip. Start by saying that today. The threat of nuclear weapons uses as realistic as ever and it was three decades ago on the twenty nine hundred ninety one when president ronald another by decided to shut down the semi politics nuclear test site and thus he basically started the whole process of closure of other nuclear tests is around the world after kazakhstan moratorium on nuclear site where declared by russian to duration nova zemlya than united states followed with nevada. Franz with more ruin china is deciding logano so for us twenty nine. Th of august is just a day in a calendar it is a reminder about how dramatic nuclear tests can be for humankind because in kazakhstan alone. One point five million people still suffer and we'll unfortunately suffer for the future generations from genetic diseases cancer leukemia which we are caused by exposure to nuclear tests and the total Power of all the tests that we carried out on semipalatinsk is one thousand two hundred times more than the bomb. That was used in hiroshima in august. Forty-five so again can imagine the scale on that Radiation in semi piloting The test site itself is of size of so. It's a big chunk of territory. Cows on that cannot be used for any other purposes like agriculture. For many many decades now so we that we can also project. What was the damage caused by other nuclear sites around the world which were eventually closed and The closure of semipalatinsk in kazakhstan I would say started the whole process of developing and then adopting ninety six the treaty on prohibition of nuclear tests I think this is a significant event for everyone around.

"This is Colin Linden from UN news, joy, some Sunia acting executive director of you and environments or unit has expressed her sorrow at the death of UN staff, traveling to the US environment assembly on if yo- paean airlines flight eighty three o two which crush on Sunday killing everyone on board. In a statement released on Monday, Muslim Suez said that the environmental community is in mourning. And that those who died included UN staff youth delegates scientists and academe IX, she joined UN secretary General Antonio Gutierrez in sending the heartfelt condolences of the agency to the families and loved ones of everyone who lost their lives the tragedy. Patrick Newman from U N news spoke to Missouri and asked her how the atmosphere at the assembly has been affected act is quite combine shot quite reflective in many ways. But it's also been a moment. Where the community is a whole community that works on environment has come together because of the tragedy so this morning, for example. We had a moment of silence not just for United Nations stuff, but also delegates and other participants who were victims in the crash were coming for this meeting. So summarise the mood here is quite somber fad and reflective has this particular event affected. You personally is the anybody close to you that you know, that has been impacted or lost their lives, and you can imagine not just me. But the entire team behind me. We're working very hard preparing for the United Nations environmental assembly, which just started today. And you personally, the only staff of you an Environment Program that was a victim a Chinese national by the name of Victor Chang. It's really been. Devastating thinking about his family, and he was young up and coming decent human being in a fully professional to think about the loss, especially for his family sake and young very young family. I think the second is not just a United Nations staff, but also they were delegate and other participants who are coming to this meeting who were also victims very sad to know that the guests that we were preparing to welcome. Some of them did not make it. And I think lastly is all of these colleagues and delegates who were victims they pretty much died while they were working where they were coming to this important to global meeting on environment. So it's been a very sad and somber moment and reminded that life is too short. And lastly going forward with this event. How has it impacted the entire preparation that you guys been going? Through regarding the event itself. Very clear that we are honoring the victims in almost every meeting that I have been to today before the meeting started business that is in moments of violence in honor of the victims the community has really come together. United Nations stuff, but also Member States civil society media for you, get this sense of unity around environment. But also around the loss, which has brought all of us together. We're trying to do all we can to support their affected families linked to the victims. So we've also been dispatching teams to go to households and other places to confer their affected under the members and friends.

"Liska Fiji. Welcome to the Liz on out podcast series here at UN news been working for about two years. Trying to figure out a story to tell about the UN a fictional dramatization. That finally came to fruition. Mr. Mana says in the process of creating a new TV series based on the UN's work with particular focus on women's issues. He and syringes swan of marbles in Uman's a television series about genetically altered race struggling to protect themselves from outside influences. Stop by the studio to show how their projects are working to push forward, the seventeen sustainable development goals right now called United. But it's. Yeah. You and then smaller? The show is about people Facific -ly division of women who are mainly involved in gender equality and gender issues for women, and it's really at the end of the day. Again. It's it's kind of taking a human look what these women at the UN go through what they suffer. What they sacrifice for the greater good. And they will sacrifice a lot of things in their own personal lives to make sure the people they don't even know have a better life, which is really kind of interesting. It's based on that almost Tom Moody saying it's actually the same thing in Koran where it's like you kill one person you kill everybody. You save one. You save everybody. And that's really what it's about how they managed to set aside their own personal difficulties to continue doing the right thing. Because most everybody that I've met here is extraordinarily disciplined and really determined to make a better life for billions of people around the world. So would you say that your participation in world TV day had something to do with this new series Vida's everything to do with? It. Yeah. You intend to consult with real UN staff. Not only that I intend to hire. Some real UN staffers to be some of the writers on the writing team because it is a complicated institution. And even though we're dramatizing it fictionalised does a lot of things that I'm going to have to have vetted. So it's going to be a little bit of a tricky thing to write on a regular basis. But that's why I want to hire tickly women to be on the writing staff to help me kind of navigate what the story lines could be what they campy. I've already had one storyline rejected for the pilot. So have to fix that the certain sensitivity that I'm aware of do you intend to travel to different locations right now the way it's structured in my head. I would say seventy percent takes place here in New York and thirty percent takes place in conflict states, all over Africa and anywhere else. That would be great for the local economies. There are some that are much more easy to work in than others. Will you be hiring local people? I don't know the answer to that. What topics? Do you intend to cover? Well, I think all certainly all this sustainable development goals. I mean, all of those issues from the hygiene, gender equality economic quality all those seventeen goals that are all incredibly worthy. Those certainly would be the bedrock. I guess the majority of the stories began the stories of more focused about the women who are actually trying to change those problems. Do you expect each episode to touch on a different topic? Yes, I think there are certain storylines that will a syringe can tell you as well because she's heavily involved in series world that usually you'll have one storyline will be resolved in one episode, but you'll have overarching storylines involving perhaps an issue that our lead character can't or is being sported chew fix. But there's a lot of support in Hollywood for this show. People wanna see this made. Yeah. And I think I think it has to do a lot with me too movement as well. This really is about the empowerment of women. It's good timing for that. And how. Do you hope the TV series will actually create change first of all it will educate? The American public is to what the UN really does. And really kind of expose. The fact that these are hard working people with religion McColl's because there's a lot of misconceptions about the UN across the country. This is really worthy institution. And I think it's also going to bring to the attention that the way we live here in the United States is infinitely different than the way everybody else in the rest of the world lives..
