The much-vaunted United Nations COP21 Climate Talks opened on November 30 in the suburban former Le Bourget airport under “red” security conditions in a traumatized Paris, a week after the terrorist massacre that took more than 130 lives.

More than 40,000 people convened with the extravagant aim to save the planet for future generations by containing global warming and curbing greenhouse gas emissions, even though resistance to the conditions of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol at subsequent gatherings wrapped the current Summit in skepticism.

In 1991, upon independence from the crumbling Soviet Union, the Latvian post office issued a set of postage stamps in honour of its previous 1940’s ‘independent’ Air Force, each plane decked with the swastika. It was our appeal to the Universal Postal Union that led to their withdrawal.

In similar situations, the Charter or mission statements of the World Trade Organization (WTO),the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO),UNESCO, the Council of Europe (CoE), the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and others of the global alphabet soup have proven useful benchmarks in naming, blaming and shaming their states-parties, whether for antisemitism or, increasingly, boycott.
