HOUSTON, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The United Nations has publicly stripped ToddandClare.com of its UN membership on October 12, 2016, following publication of an October 4 report on the UN website, criticizing the UN's support for the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange. The UN report's Google cache can be found here, with further information about the report available through PRWeb: http://www.prweb.com/releases/united-nations-report/julian-assange-wikileaks/prweb13750603.htm
Todd and Clare's response to the UN's decision in a statement on the company blog read: "After ToddandClare.com had spent thousands of dollars in staff training to align with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, we've sadly met the same fate as Nestle and Tata Steel: Being delisted."
The statement continued, "ToddandClare.com's delisting should be a warning to other UN members: The United Nations Global Compact is happy to accept your money, but not your feedback. And, if you disagree with the UN in anyway, expect angry repercussions like having your integrity publicly called into question. From a body that accepts cash donations from companies, hand over fist, yet doesn't want to be accountable to their own member's dissent, that is surely a debate topic."
Speaking in house at the company's Houston offices on Wednesday night, ToddandClare.com CEO, Todd Hammond, said:
"We're proud to have dissented against this dreadful UN decision supporting a fugitive like Julian Assange. What were they thinking? Now Swedish prosecutors are having their good reputations attacked by random anarchists because of what the OHCHR has done. On page 8 of our UN report, we say we'd been warned by Wikileaks to expect actions on our UN membership if we didn't drop our UK court case. Our UN delisting means the attacks have started. You don't have to be Hillary Clinton or a big company, like Trafigura, to come under fire from Mr Assange and his Wikileaks organization. You can be a small, hardworking American business, at the center of a serious police investigation, like this one involving ToddandClare.com and Julian Assange, and the Royal Bahamas Police Force, and Wikileaks has the power to affect you. We feel the UN is saying to businesses who support them: 'We want your money, not your ideas. If you challenge UN power, expect to be crushed.'"
