UNICEF’s Donations at Work

unicef-house

UNICEF Japan doesn’t only spend its donations suing critics into silence and campaigning against freedom of speech – it has also spent tens of millions of dollars building and maintaining its gigantic HQ in the middle of Tokyo.

Built by Mitsubishi in 2001 in Minato City, Tokyo’s most expensive and prestigious district, “UNICEF House” cost at least 30 million dollars to construct and boasts 3,702 square metres of office space across 5 floors and a basement.

The lavishly appointed headquarters was the cause of instant consternation when completed, with many questioning the appropriateness of an HQ more befitting a multinational corporation than a non-profit children’s charity supposedly concerned with improving the lot of starving third world children.

UNICEF Japan for its part claims the huge building was necessary “to save money.”

Photographs of the interior are completely lacking, save for the all important gift shop – those wondering about the relationship between UNICEF Japan and UNICEF proper might well notice the organisation refers to itself only as “UNICEF” here, and of course the name of the building omits the fact that the organisation has nothing to do with the UN.

By comparison, the real UNICEF’s sole Japanese presence consists of a single room in the Tokyo-based United Nations University.

Of course, the real UNICEF is scarcely any better than UNICEF Japan in terms of its unaccountable use of donations and taxpayer funds in such worthy causes as censoring freedom of speech – in particular, serious questions must be asked about any organisation which allows regional franchises to use its name in the perpetration of widespread fraud, and it can hardly be regarded as an innocent party.

    Now that I know how the building looks like, time to take out my stockpile of molotov and fly to Japan.

    Crash a plane into that building. Sept 11 is near. What better way to show tribute to the ones who died in World Trade than killing those good for nothing corrupt people. Blood for blood I say!

    might need more than a stockpile of molotov to bring down that base of evil. you need a team, better weapon (c4, Ak-47, Famas, Rpg-7,), and loli magazine (to recover your 'pscyhe' and use it as a bait)

    There's plenty of such weapons in Camp Zama, Yokosuka Naval Base, and Misawa AFB--Take your pick. Get some spec-ops guys on your side and let them handle the dirty work.

    Now do you understand why it might actually be a good thing for the Americans to have a few bases over in Japan at the cost of a few Okinawan schoolgirls' virginities?

    You need FMG-148 Javelin instead of Rpg-7, HK416 or XM8 prototype instead of AK-47. Semtex instead of c4 as it's harder to detect it. You also need a H&K PSG1 or FN SPR for long range sniping.

    loli magazine is also fine but remember to provide a box for your Snake where he could read it safely. Otherwise it could trigger a femnazi air raid from the UNICEF Japan's rooftop. With hang gliders!

    I'd becareful if I were you SnooSnoo.

    UNICEF of Japan reminds me of how Scientology works elsewhere, setting up "HQs" that cost millions in the middle of cities, and using their money to heavily litigate the offending opinions and criticism.

    They're truly scary stuff. They are NOT afraid to hunt down everyday civilians. I'd rather not say more at this point...

    Religious-Cult Mafia = Scientology

    "We'll send 'them' to cap your ass if you threaten us..."

    Legal Fraud Organization = UNICEF

    "We'll sue you and your website to silence your ass if you threaten us..."

    I really don't give a damn what both of them do...But the latter of the two is a threat to anime and hentai...

    And that makes it everyone's (anime/hentai fans) business...

    What I hate most about these Non Profit organizations is that they are tax-exempt. They set their own salaries and can lobby to take my property. I wonder if they pay property taxes on that building, doubt it.

    They don't protect children. All they do is cite numbers to invoke guilt for donations to pay their high administrative salaries. Never do I see actual action on their part to fix these cases.

    They are representatives of a nanny state that wish to regulate behavior out of a desire to control others.

    REally all these organizations EN,UN,UNJ,etc are worthless, they take "charity" to fix there own agendas, they try to destroy freedom of speech, there doing nothing to truly HELP real people and there more or less stealing from the ignorant(sorry if it offends), they have no propose and sure as hell have no need, yet people blindly believe they are trying to help anyone WRONG! the sooner people wake up the better the world well become and I don't see that happening.

    Now am off, i have a job in japan to be exact Tokyo, what does it entail ? military of course, more like saving the world.

    I'd rather like to know why japanese officials seemingly enjoy bowing down to that scam business.

    I mean, it's not like this fraud-show has any legal power behind them, let alone any moral authority because they themselves are nothing but freeloaders and criminals before the law.

    I guess the japanese play along simply because this organization is called UNICEF JAPAN. Throw in a good dose of nationalistic drivel and people become completely ignorant. What a shame.

    It looks like some glamourous art college rather than a charity organisation.

    And that's just the HQ, i'm betting every single one of the employee's houses is just like Agnes chan's. (with field workers aka, the one's who actually go out to poor countries and do something, instead of just vacationing there to make it look like they care, at the lowest end of the salary).

    If this bunch of crooks tried to pull this shit in any Western country, they'd be under criminal investigation. It's quite obvious that they're allowing people to be misled into believing that they're part of the real UNICEF in order to get more donations and to give their moralistic proclamations more legitimacy, and it's quite obvious that a lot of the money they're given by people who want to help poor African kids is actually going towards giving Agnes Chan and her fellow holier-than-thou prudes and freedom-haters a very comfortable life.

    They should be hauled in front of a court and made to explain why they don't make it clearer that they aren't part of the UN and what percentage of the donations they get are actually going towards helping real, living, 3D children.

    There are bunches of crooks in western countries that perpetrate fraud like this all the time and get away with it. How is Scientology really any different? They claim they're trying to help people, but really they're just stealing their money. And that's just the most obvious example. Plenty of western charities have very dubious financial practices. Just saying, this sort of fraud isn't limited to Agnes Chan and her ilk.

    'UNICEf' JP:
    "Um... A little less than 0%. But that's OK because we have a big ass thirty bazillion yen building sitting in the middle of the most expensive district in Tokyo, to prove to everyone that we are most definitely a non-profit organization."
