Video: Protests in front of UNESCO Paris HQ against pro-terrorism Qatar

Protests in Paris against Qatar

Hundreds of activists have staged a protest in front of UNESCO headquarters in Paris against Qatar's support to terrorism, a video obtained by the Baghdad Post revealed Thursday.


The protesters expressed rejection of the tiny Gulf state's bid for the UNESCO Secretary General post.


Qatar’s Hamad bin Abdulaziz Al-Kawari received 18 votes in the voting to replace UNESCO’s director-general Irina Bokova by the start of 2018. 


The protesters slammed Qatar's behind-the-scene practices to win the highly prestigious international post. They added Doha would use its “money weapon" to get the post. 


Also, Kawari has been accused of being anti-Semitic.  

"Qatar has contributed to the spread of chaos, terrorism, hatred and the overthrow of regimes in the Middle East to serve terrorist agendas," protesters said.
