USA Accepts UNHRC on a Collision Course with the UN; Strikes-Off “the Charter of the UN” from Draft Resolution
Posted on March 17th, 2013

USA has made a drastic change to the draft resolution on Sri Lanka presented on March 7. The opening paragraph which read “guided by the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenants on Human Rights and other relevant instruments”, has been changed to “guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenants on Human Rights and other relevant instruments”; dropping the terms “the Charter of the United Nations”.

UN and UNHRC on a Collision Course; UNHRC Heading for Dissolution as Its Predecessor – http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2013/02/15/un-and-unhrc-on-a-collision-course-unhrc-heading-for-dissolution-as-its-predecessor/

This is a serious matter because it proves USA knowingly manipulates its control over the UNHRC in violation of the Charter of the United Nations that upholds sovereignty of UN members.

Sri Lanka has a clear case of appealing for protection under the UN Charter and the fact that the UNHRC resolution interferes with the sovereignty of the nation. All UN affiliated agencies are subordinate to the UN. The UN functions under the UN Charter which recognises the sovereignty of its members. Unfortunately the UNHRC has violated the UN Charter. It must be brought back to where it belongs “”…” a subordinate UN agency. This can only be forced on the UNHRC by bringing in a resolution at the UN General Assembly demanding all UN agencies uphold the UN Charter and stop interfering in domestic affairs.

Such a resolution will be favoured by the very vast majority of UN members. No country interferes with developed countries as they are in a cartel. Certain developed countries interfere with developing countries in order to scuttle their development or to hinder the development of another country. Old colonial nations are in a do or die situation trying to save their dominance over the world by disrupting developing countries that show any promise.

UN resolutions cannot be vetoed by the Permanent Five (P5). Only matters that go to the UN Security Council can be vetoed. As such the resolution demanding non-interference can go to the UN General Assembly this year and it will surely be passed with an overwhelming majority.

Following the resolution, the UNHRC will be forced to shrink to where it rightly belongs.

UNHRC and its predecessor have passed many resolutions against many countries but none has implemented any of these resolutions completely. There is no need Sri Lanka should implement any of the resolutions passed against it. Already Sri Lanka has fulfilled 100% the 2009 resolution by continuing with the Provincial Councils and appointing the LLRC. What is obvious is the gradual and steady worsening of interference in 2009, 2012 and 2013 resolutions. Unless this trend is arrested with resistance and a UN resolution, 2014 will have a worse intrusive resolution against Sri Lanka. Making use of an UN resolution to defeat intrusive UNHRC resolutions is the right approach to end this madness

    UNHRC – Tamilian Navi Nazi Pillai
    USA – Tamilians for Obama
    UK – British Tamilian Forum
    Endia – Tamil Madu clowns
    Canada – Tamilian Ms. Kasalamala MP

    Is it a surprise?

  2. Vis8 Says:

    Sri Lanka should bring no-confidence over the terrorist-Pillay-led UNHRC. This article provides meaningful ways forward for SL. Give the hypocrites a taste of their own medicine.

  3. Voice123 Says:

    Lorenzo, ask your US government to retract this resolution.

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    Vice,

    We have. Now its in their hands.

    Tell your Australian govt. to do the same WITH ITS FRIENDLY nations in the UNHRC. Do it NOW without fail. Only 3 days to the resolution.

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    India has OFFICIALLY decided to vote AGAINST SL on March 22.

    These clowns keep the resolution to the LAST DAY so others can’t bring RETALIATORY resolutions on USA or its allies.

  6. thirdeye Says:

    If we win aginest resolution or loose, our country should stop waste of public money and start actin responsibly and profitably. not for personnel gains.

    What the white domination of the Indian sub continent resulted in was the planting the seeds of ROWDYISM and HOOLIGANISM in and around India. These rowdy streaks were always dormant in Tamil society born not out the Thirukurak culture but of the ‘thrada’ third class Tamil film industry that catered to the vilest instincts of their ‘common man’.

    What this Geneva stunt has brought to the fore is the reign of ROWDYISM among diaspora Tamils and South Indian Tamils. Rowdyism breeds violence, and uncontrolled violence is the mother of Terrorism. Under the guise of ‘law’ ‘reconciliation’ and such moral dictates, what we are witnessing is the granting of impunity to Tamil rowdies, thugs and the dregs of Tamil society, whether clothed in rich sarees such as Jayalalitha or in spotless white as Karunanidhi, Vaiko and their likes, to give vent to their basest instincts. What these white hooligan nations (just see the death and destruction they are sowing across the globe) are doing under the guise of disciplining Sri Lanka, is reviving the rowdy and hooligan spirit which always characterized the Tamil hoi poloi. How can commissions, committees or whatever be the name you call them by sit as Law enforcing agents in Geneva, when Buddhist monks are beaten up in daylight in public places in Tamil Nadu with the white man looking down encouragingly and complacently at them without a simple word of condemnation ? The truth is: that is what they want. They want to see the degradation of the Indian sub-continent and the Tamils are complying with glee merely by living according to their rue nature.

    The UNHRC in Geneva is a gathering under the auspices of white hooligans. Their aim is to promote hooliganism in Tamil Nadu. At this very moment and under their very eyes, the Tamils are on a spree of violence: rowdyism and hooliganism, violating all that decent society holds sacred.

    The UNHRC in Geneva is a blatant case of judgment going to brutish beasts. To bow to such compulsion is a disgrace to all that this nation has been built on and stands for.

    To me our option is clear, just walk our throwing their resolutions at their faces.

    Sri lanka should talk with other friendly contries and organise a campaign against this “B” navi

  9. Voice123 Says:

    Mario Perera, dont you think New Delhi has to share at least some of the blame for this thuggery? They dont have to go along with the USA on this. Nobody is forcing them.

  10. mario_perera Says:

    Voice123, you are right.

    What we are witnessing is the pathetic spectacle of the TAMIL TAIL wagging BODY INDIA
