UN obsessed with Africa's population for all the wrong reasons

There is a global push to change Africa, and not for the better, according to the leader of a group that is working with but closely watching the notorious United Nations.

Sharon Slater is co-founder of Family Watch International, a U.S.-based group that promotes and defends the nuclear family at the United Nations and its Economic and Social Council.

In an AFR interview, Slater said Africa is a constant target of people who want the historic continent and its people to surrender to a far-left vision of the future. Everything from sex education to abortion are being forced on Africans who don't want it, she said.

“All the policies that we fight,” she told the “At the Core” program, “generally lead to infertility, abortion, the transgender agenda.”

With an estimated population of 1.4 billion spread across 54 countries, Africa is known for its lack of living standards, a lack of drinking water, and a high illiteracy rate. It is the continent’s population that concerns the UN, however, because Africa is projected to double its population by 2050. That is happening on a planet that is supposedly hurdling toward apocalypse because of climate change.

Slater told the radio program the views of many elites were expressed last fall when a high-ranking European Union official, Josep Borrell, boasted about Europe and mocked the developing world.

“He was caught saying that Europe is a garden, and the rest of the world is a jungle,” Slater points out, “and the only way to protect the garden is to go out into the jungle basically and get rid of the weeds.”

Borrell made the comments to a meeting of Europe’s diplomats last fall, according to a Jerusalem Post article.

Those “weeds” are Africans who are still being exploited by First World countries. In a sad and ironic twist, the exploitation is happening today to mine and export minerals, such as cobalt and lithium, for "green energy" companies.
