UN Day 2021   Dear Colleagues and Friends,   Another year has passed us by, and the UN today celebrates it’s 76th birthday. The past year has ...

After more than 2 years of meeting in virtual mode, we finally had a face to face meeting of the very important "Staff Management Committee" (SMC), which is the highest level United Nations staff/management negotiating body, where the various #UN staff un…

.@UN & NGOs are making every effort to continue delivering assistance in Tigray, Amhara and Afar.

I reiterate our grave concern for civilians.

All parties to the conflict must respect international humanitarian law.

Today two long serving Field Service staff members received their #UNFSU Long Service Award. Mr. Gonzalo De Murga and Mr. Igor Posavec we congratulate them on their long and dedicated service to the United Nations and wish them good luck in their retirement.

Attending a “Face to Face” Staff Management Commitee (SMC) meeting for the first time since 2019 makes you realize that while Zoom and MsTeams offer lots of advantages it cannot replace the value added from the personal interactions, the building of relationships, the chats over a cup of coffee... on the sidelines etc.

Attending the first face to face Staff Management Committee (SMC) meeting in two years! Wonderful UN compound in beautiful Bonn, Germany 🇩🇪

Consider that the United Nations mission in Afghanistan #UNAMA annual budget for this year was just over $700M, something the US would spend in two days, for 20 Years!

Let’s wage peace ☮️ not war!

For all who fought with great courage for freedom, let’s dispel the shadows of racial injustice together. As @UN Secretary-General @antonioguterres has stated, we must #FightRacism.

The transatlantic slave trade ended more than 200 years ago.

Sadly, we continue to live in its shadows of racial injustice.

We urgently need to #FightRacism, dismantle racist structures and reform racist institutions.
