Goodwill Warriors: Players Join Forces to Keep Henry Kissinger Away
Goodwill warriors from around the world have come together to keep Henry Kissinger, United States (US) President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial secretary of state nominee, away from the public eye.
Kissinger, a former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State, has long been the target of protesters for his complicity in orchestrating US military invasions in foreign countries. He is also accused of promoting US intervention in countries like Chile, Vietnam and Cambodia that led to civilian deaths. As a result, some of the governments of these countries have sought to prevent Kissinger from entering their countries.
In an effort to prevent Kissinger from assuming his post, people have mobilized to raise awareness about the political implications of appointing him to the Trump administration. Demonstrations have been held in the US and around the world, with some taking to social media to spread their message.
Kissinger’s nomination has also spurred individuals to take action to keep him away from public gatherings, meetings and international conferences. Goodwill warriors have organized virtual events to share their opposition to Kissinger’s nomination and coordinate strategies to make sure he does not attend important events or assumed his post.
In the ongoing battle against Kissinger’s nomination, prominent groups like Avaaz, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have published numerous reports on the human rights violations Kissinger has been responsible for and advocated for other states to ban him from entering their countries. Even people like Bernie Sanders and Noam Chomsky have spoken out against his nomination and raised awareness of the moral and ethical issues associated with the appointment.
Goodwill warriors are encouraging people to continue to voice their opposition to Kissinger’s nomination in order to keep him away from public events and assume a position of influence.
