We bet you did not hear that: UN Headquarters Were Lit Up in Orange......

UN Reports: Today, November 25, is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. In a show of support for a new 16 day campaign of activism launched by the UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women, the New York skyline was set ablaze with fiery colors last night, as both the UN headquarters and the Empire State Building were illuminated in orange. The campaign, which begins today, ends on December 10, which is International Human Rights Day.

The new campaign invites individuals to “Orange Your Neighborhood” (check out the hashtag #orangeurhood for some great photos), to symbolize hope for a brighter future, free from violence against women and girls. What we know today is that one in three women will experience physical or sexual violence at some point in her life, and slightly more than one in ten girls have experienced forced intercourse or other forced sexual acts at some point in their lives. 

These statistics give us pause, as we consider the sheer number of women affected by violence……..(End of quote by UN)

SDR: So far the UN is speaking the truth.

But quite frankly most media did not even report on this matter and so the questions lingers whats the use with a campaign that most people on this planet don’t see or hear of ? 

This while many many persons travel to the meeting and cost the UN millions and millions for something THAT COULD AND SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF ONLINE !

Example: Finland's  Helsinki Think Tank for instance functions all and entirely via online conferences and meetings.

UN´s spending frenzy has to be stopped it uses ages old physical visiting ideas that where practiced before the era of Internet and mobile phones.

Question: How can UN ask men to rethink when UN it self pays sick salaries and give diplomatic rights to people running around spending money on meetings all their entire life while the rest of us have o face the so called cold reality!
The victims live according to the new internet and Skype world while UN spends on 1class travel in person for any and all reasons!

A physical visit would be understandable if there was some global agreement to sign that's final and not half ready like we now many times see.
A good example has been the agreements on Female Genital Mutilation where the worst nations like Somalia signed it separately while not doing anything to stop it. If there is a agreement there needs to be some sort morale at least. But fact remains that where the UN has gone, the moral is as mystical as supernatural powers.

SDR would like to point out that UN is so desperate for attention that they give private companies the possibility to get free publicity like seen here  by United Colours of Benetton.

Benton should be given a medal for marketing but UN and its leaders should be labeled by you dear reader.

A plain UN logic reality check:
Does a picture like this help abused women?
Or would a donation do more ?

Its nothing less than if we would get a Advertisement along with the US Presidential speech: State of the Union.
Ergo:A waste of money and no benefit for women in need what ever........
