“Renowned Entertainer Cynthia Basinet Returns to the United Nations to Champion Intellectual Property Rights and Combat Big Media and Big Tech Abuse”
NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, October 24, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Earlier this month, The United Nations witnessed the triumphant return of the iconic entertainer, acclaimed activist, and media mogul, Cynthia Basinet, renowned for her sultry stylings and influential persona. This marks her 16th appearance at the United Nations, where she is taking a bold stand against the relentless cyber and media war on intellectual property and the cost.
As a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and a fervent advocate for social change, Cynthia Basinet expressed her unwavering commitment to the cause. She reflected on her visit to the Sahrawi refugee camps 22 years ago, stating, “I have watched for decades, powerless as photo ops after photo ops were just re-enactments from my real life, whether they were published or private. This slow encroachment due to an ever-growing thirst for more content continues to threaten women’s rights, aiding and abetting systemic racism, and perpetuating ageism, all while stifling creativity and diversity. The world has been subjected to this constant warfare, staged and re-enacted for decades.”
She further emphasized the gravity of the situation, drawing parallels between the enduring plight of the Sahrawi refugees, who have been displaced for over 40 years, and the recent crisis in Ukraine. According to the United Nations Human Rights Council 2022 report, an astounding 108.4 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide.
Cynthia Basinet’s powerful message captivated the audience at the United Nations. You can watch her speech on UN Web TV with the time code: 1:36.
Cynthia’s connection to the Western Sahara dates back to 2001 when she visited the region to raise awareness for Saharawi refugees who were striving for peaceful self-determination. Her tireless efforts were recognized in 2005 when she was nominated for a shared Nobel Peace Prize as part of the “1000 Peace Women Across the Globe.”
Always at the forefront of political and social issues, Cynthia Basinet’s persona and impactful contributions have been embraced by the media. However, this support has at times veered off course, diverting and diluting her voice and the rights of women and marginalized communities.
