UN youth climate adviser calls for White people to be “relieved of power” in “revolutionary fights”

 A United Nations youth climate adviser has come under fire after old posts uncovered on her social media talked about how she wanted the end of capitalism and claimed that "terrorism" is a slur used by the West to justify imperialism. Her posts also called for attacks on White people for supposedly pushing humanity's destruction through the so-called climate crisis.

Pakistani-American Ayisha Siddiqa was personally appointed by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in 2023 to be one of his advisers and to help "accelerate the implementation of his climate action agenda."

The Secretary-General's Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change gives realistic advice and actual recommendations to expedite the implementation of the UN's climate action agenda. Siddiqa was selected for the two-year assignment based on her "demonstrated commitment to the UN's values."

Nevertheless, Siddiqa's social media posts show radical leftist beliefs beyond environmentalism. Her old activity showed that she endorses the abolition of the police, support for anti-capitalist ideals like Marxism and socialism and repeated racism against White people.

Siddiqa's climate activism does not come from a desire to protect the environment, but to challenge the West for its wars and Middle Eastern involvement, which she claims is linked to oil, as stated in a May 2020 post on her account on X, formerly Twitter.

"You want to know why I got into climate activism; it wasn't because I wanted to protect the environment… I became involved [because] the West slaughtered, bombed and starved my people to death in the name of oil. And no one talks about it," Siddiqa wrote. 

Siddiqa also charged the West with "organized terrorism" in connection with the climate crisis and questioned the term "terrorism" when employed by the West to describe actions by Islamist groups.

Siddiqa, in a post about Hamas launching rockets into Israeli civilian areas in May 2021, cited Marxist thinkers Franz Fanon and Angela Davis, who backed violence as a means of liberation.

UN youth climate adviser blames White people for climate change

Siddiqa blames White people for climate change, stating in a March 2021 post, "The white man has brought life as we know it, to the verge of extinction."

She also believes White people in the climate movement should be stripped of power, saying: "We're allowing White people to have too much space … White people have absolutely no prerogative or authority to lead the movement."  

Siddiqa denounced the United States and Western foreign policy, calling President Joe Biden a "war criminal" and tagging the British Royal family as "inequality, capitalism & White supremacy personified" in 2020.

Following the George Floyd riots of 2020, Siddiqa said in a post, "America you looted every inch of this planet, raped and [pillaged] its Brown and Black people and now you are angry that your citizens are doing it to you."

Apart from supporting the abolition of the police, Siddiqa also believes the Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrations were ideal for climate activists of what it looks like to be "a credible threat to power."

"When you are a credible threat to power, you don't get to… attain permits & permission to take to the streets… When you are really threatening systems of oppression you have to hide your identity, like many BLM protestors & BIPOC climate activists have had to do. Revolutionary fights… are battles born out of sheer necessity," Siddiqa said.

The UN youth climate adviser also expects the destruction of capitalism for allegedly continuing "evils." Siddiqa thinks capitalism is "the manifestation of racism" and its abolition is essential to her climate agenda.

"Capitalism and a livable planet are incompatible," Siddiqa stated, claiming humanity had seven years to turn the tables. "Working within capitalism is what will eventually kill us." She also added that capitalism "devours everything, from protest to rebellion."
