"75 years ago, as the 🌍 lay smouldering from the 2nd global conflict in 30 years, a new project was conceived – a project born of suffering, death & loss, but also of hope, & the blinding realization that there is no future but a common future"-@DrTedros #UNGASS #UN75
"That project, of course, was the United Nations 🇺🇳"-@DrTedros #UNGASS #UN75

Referring to #UN75, #ICC President recalls that “the need for both the ICC & the @UN originated directly from the horrors of World War II” & both institutions share a common mission: “to achieve a world free of violence and conflict – with human rights for all” #UNGA
#ICC President Chile Eboe-Osuji: “That is the future that the ICC strives to foster. It is the future that assures that there will be accountability through the rule of law, justice for victims, when atrocities that shock the conscience of humanity have been committed” #UNGA

Happy (belated) 75th Birthday @UN (#UN75)!

Actually, a correction: the United Nations is 78 years old...and it's birthday was not this past Saturday (Oct 24)

To be clear: the "United Nations" as a global "international organization" was formed 75 years ago this past Saturday (Oct 24).

But the "United Nations" itself is a bit older.
The "United Nations" itself was formed on January 1, 1942 as a military alliance against Nazi Germany

PM @narendramodi addressed the #UN75 virtually today. Key points from his speech:

•How long would a country have to wait particularly when the transformational changes happening in that country affect a large part of the world?
•With the changing times,if we don’t change,then the drive needed to bring change will also get weakened.

•India has always thought abt the interests of the whole humankind & not abt its own vested interests.This philosophy has always been the driving force of India's policies
•Any gesture of friendship by India towards one country is not directed against any 3rd country.

•India will not hesitate in raising its voice against the enemies of humanity,human race&human values–these incl terrorism, smuggling of illegal weapons, drugs & money-laundering.

Today I called on #UNGA to lead a global push to connect everyone to the web. Here’s why.

Every year since I invented the web, its importance in people’s lives has grown. At the same time, the gap between those who are and are not connected has grown too.

Web access promotes and protects social justice. It provides opportunities that should be available for everyone. It contributes positively to almost all of the #SDGs — from reducing inequalities and driving economic growth, to boosting health outcomes.

Digital technology increasingly underpins access to essential services, including food, water, energy, and healthcare, as well as critical pillars of government and democracy.

We must therefore urgently work for a digital future that is safe, empowering, and includes everyone.

75 years ago, @UN was founded to unite the world to confront the challenges facing all of humanity. With growing inequality, climate crisis, #COVID19, toxic nationalism, and ongoing conflict - it is clear that the promise of the UN remains as important as ever. #UN75
We celebrate the @UN #UN75. Its humanitarian efforts have saved lives, it has brokered and kept peace in conflict areas around the world, promoted #HumanRights, and created & championed an agenda for sustainable development. #PeaceDay #GlobalGoals Image
But @UN's promise remains unfulfilled. Globally, #WomensRights are being rolled back, women human rights defenders are under attack. 25 yrs since the Beijing Declaration, & 20 yrs since UNSC Res. 1325, govts aren't meeting commitments to #WomenPeaceSecurity & gender equality. Image

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the @UN's specialized agency for health, governed by 194 Member States. It provides science-based recommendations to protect people's health everywhere.


WHO is committed to achieving better health for everyone, everywhere!

Healthy people can learn, work & support themselves & their families. When people are sick, they struggle & families & communities fall behind.


Thanks to WHO:
There’s a global standard-setting body to bring together the 🌎's top health experts to produce to make recommendations to bring better health to people throughout the world

Remember one of those secret projects I said I’m involved in? Well, @UNICEF + @TheLancet & @FT Commission are partnering on @GHFutures2030 to explore how technology is shaping health and wellbeing for future generations.

And I’m working with them to help envision this. Image
We’re asking young people to imagine their own health futures. We want to know what mental health, healthcare & medicine, with artificial intelligence & frontier technologies, could look like in 2045. Youth voices matter, and we need them to be heard by world leaders at #UN75. Image

1/#Thread #JustCurious: Why @UNHumanRights, @CommissionerHR, & international media are silent on Pakistan's barbarism and brutalities against Baloch people? Aren't Baloch people rights are #humanrights? CC:@Dunja_Mijatovic @mbachelet @BBCNews @CNN @ABC @abcnews #BalochLivesMatter
2/Are the Baloch nation excluded from the #UnitedNations? Isn't the @UN an organization where oppressed & victimized nations like Baloch nation: don't have any value, to have a voice for them?

Context: In 1945, amidst the Second World War (#WWII), the bloodiest conflict in human history and the first true total war, nations under the Allies and neutral ones have come together for cooperation, dialogue, and shared action for peace.
A previous organization of nation-states, the League of Nations, brought forth from #WWI did not succeed in putting a stop to #WWII. Its policies conflicted, & at times its members put self-interest above diplomacy & peace. It disintegrated w/ the outbreak of #WWII in Europe.
