- Above are some parts of the UN correspondence on meeting restrictions.
ISEA Foundation working on the Survival Human Rights MobiDollar Project received an updated message from the United Nations titled "Further updates on the arrangements at UNOG in response to COVID-19 linked developments" on the 4th, which left us no choice but to postpone or replace all meetings.
Accordingly, the details of the Mobidollar-related contents approved as documents of the U.N. General Assembly as well as the resolution on Survival Human Rights are set out to be announced to each government and international organization via e-mail.
In particular, we will continue to distribute the contents of Survival Human Rights, MobiDollar, and MobiCoin through the media to form a public opinion that cannot be opposed in the international community. With these efforts, we will try to make an environment where the project is acceptable to each government and city.
Faced with a dramatically declining local situation and the imminent saturation of local hospitals, the State Council of the Republic and Canton of Geneva announced on Sunday, 1 November 2020, the return to a semi-confinement, effective the evening of Monday 2 November for four weeks. The measures are available at https://www.ge.ch/ and include, among other limitations, the prohibition of all public events of more than five people. On Monday 2 November, the Director-General of UNOG convened and chaired an extraordinary meeting of the Security Management Team to inform all United Nations entities and other organizations in Geneva of the situation, its ramifications for each organization and of the United Nations Office at Geneva’s intended course of action.
In light of this, the United Nations Office at Geneva wishes to inform NGOs that, as of Tuesday 3 November and until further notice, all in-person meetings of more than five participants – excluding personnel servicing the meeting – at the Palais des Nations must therefore move to virtual or hybrid mode – which UNOG will support to the extent of its available capacity – or be postponed, to comply with the new measures. Arrangements for all planned meetings and conferences will be reviewed with meeting organizers to minimize disruptions, while complying with the new requirements. The Host Country has informed the Office that special political events, such as peace talks, or meetings without which the organization would suffer significant damage to its functioning and its institutions (e.g. holding essential elections), which cannot be postponed or organized in virtual form, may justify consideration of an exception. The Host Country has further explained that while these exceptions are possible, they will be handled in an extremely restrictive manner due to the current crisis."
