The latest United Nations (UN) Western-world-led globalist scam plan is upon us: Criminalization of "cultural appropriation":
<< Cultural appropriation: Make it illegal worldwide, Indigenous advocates say - Delegates in Geneva from 189 countries are looking at the issue, and some want UN to speed it up - CBC News, June 13, 2017. >>

will benefit the occupying-system managers and collaborators and will
lock-in the apartheid.
