01) U.S. Withdrawal from Human Rights Council “Imminent” After U.N. Condemns Israel for Gaza Massacre


“The Trump administration will reportedly withdraw the United States from the U.N.’s Human Rights Council. Reuters reports the decision is “imminent” and comes after the U.N. General Assembly voted 120 to 8 on Wednesday to condemn Israel over its massacre of Palestinians protesting nonviolently against Israel’s occupation. We speak with Philip Alston, the United Nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights. He will speak in front of the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva next week about poverty in the United States.”
