Guess Who Is on the UN Human Rights Commission

In the above video, a representative of UN Watch an NGO, began addressing the UN Human Rights Commission, of which many members are states that greatly abuse human rights. The speaker calls out those states and calls for them to be kicked off of the HRC. That causes an interruption as many of the nations' representatives call for the speaker to be silenced. The speaker is allowed to continue. Note which countries defend the speaker and his right to speak and which countries call for him to be silenced.

Of course in countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Cuba, and the others we know what would happen to that speaker in their own countries.
