@FirstProgenitor literally they could just use the same results map every time for any vote

re: covid, UN vote 

@FirstProgenitor does not surprise me

covid, UN vote 

@FirstProgenitor can you share the source for this map?

@FirstProgenitor I know Jair is a fascist but what does he gain from this vote?

covid, UN vote 

@FirstProgenitor Given that this is supposed to be a pretty substantial global crisis, one might think it justifies the first open source vaccines.

But if those involved in production/distribution are still fooling around with IP and patents, I guess that's wishful thinking...

@msaunders @FirstProgenitor is pretty cool how all those green and grey countries are the ones that the Red ones off-shore, out-source undesirable work to, or plunder for resources, or visit for vacations

gonna be an interesting realisation in a year from now when we can't do those things any more, because people there are dying

@meena @msaunders @FirstProgenitor well, the manufacturing is not done in the global north anymore. the main source of profit is now existing capital, a big part (around 1/4? don't quote me on this) of it being intellectual property.

The global north is defending their last slice of the cake. This vote is capitalism being more important than defeating #Covid19.

The pirate party never realized how radical their attack on capitalism actually was, and how dark their defeat.

@FirstProgenitor really makes me think

@fence @FirstProgenitor Makes me embarrassed to be European.

@FirstProgenitor You have a link for this information, please?

@imageschaden @FirstProgenitor this is the source

So the map doesn't depict the result of a UN vote (so it seems), but the positions of the countries at the WHO table. But anyway, it's still a fucking shame.

@FirstProgenitor What's with the gray areas? They should be part of the UN, right?

covid, UN vote 

@waweic @FirstProgenitor based on the legend showing strong/lean supporters and undecideds, I think this is an informal poll of representatives rather than an up or down vote. Gray is probably countries that whoever made this wasn't able to talk to.

covid, UN vote 

@waweic @FirstProgenitor I'm more curious what motivated El Salvador and Ecuador to simp for Pfizer

covid, UN vote 

@FirstProgenitor not that I don't believe you, or that it's not what I expected. But do you have a good source for this? Just don't want to spread this without good source, and would like to go deeper into this

covid, UN vote 

@FirstProgenitor
The undecideds are, rather appropriately, Yellow.

covid, UN vote 

@FirstProgenitor do we have any official source backing this up?
