Avaaz: The Online Pro-War Propagandist And Color Revolution NGO
By Brandon Turbeville
It’s considered one of the globe’s largest NGOs, yet the odds are most Americans have never heard of it. Avaaz, (whose name means “voice” in many languages), is a massive “online activist organization” that claims to promote freedom and democracy all across the world in a variety of different means and for a variety of different causes. According to its own website, since its creation in 2007, Avaaz’s mission is to “organize citizens of all nations to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want.” Avaaz is, indeed, part of the color revolution apparatus, having apparently received funds from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation to start up in 2007. Avaaz was founded by Res Publica and Moveon.org, both Soros-funded organizations that attempt to co-opt the American left into supporting ideas and campaigns closely associated with the communitarian foundation oligarchs.
The Avaaz Players
In addition, a number of Avaaz founders and board members have close connections to Soros’ Open Society Foundations such as Eli Pariser (both a Board Member of OSF and a member of the Open Society US programs as well as Moveon.org) and Pedro Abramovay (the Regional Director For Latin America and the Caribbean at OSF, the Director of Latin America Programs at OSF and a campaign director of Avaaz). Conservative organization, Discover the Networks, published a summary of the connections between some of the founders of Avaaz. The website writes,
Ricken Patel: A Canadian, Patel is both the executive director of Res Publica and president/executive director of Avaaz. Eli Pariser: The executive director of MoveOn, Pariser is Avaaz’s board chairman and also serves on the advisory board of Res Publica. Tom Perriello: This former U.S. congressman from Virginia co-founded Res Publica and has been a longtime advocacy partner with Ricken Patel. Ben Brandzel: Formerly an advocacy director for MoveOn, Brandzel also served as director of new-media campaigns and fundraising for Barack Obama’s Organizing for America. In addition, he worked for the presidential campaigns of Howard Dean and John Edwards.
As one might suspect, despite its constant rhetoric regarding “human rights,” “freedom,” and “democracy,” Avaaz has openly supported violence, war, and imperialism. In 2011, Avaaz raised its voice as loudly as it could with demands that the EU, NATO, UN, and all other parties “stop the violent crackdown” on civilians in Libya. Translated: Avaaz called on the EU, NATO, UN, and all other parties to come to the rescue of jihadists that had been unleashed against the government and the people of Libya in order to overthrow Ghaddafi for the benefit of the NATO powers.

I no longer support any political party and I resist divisive identity politics as it is simply another tool of the global elite used to pit us against each other so we don't go after them for their crimes."
