    Avaaz: The Online Pro-War Propagandist And Color Revolution NGO

    http://www.activistpost.com/2016/01/avaaz-the-online-pro-war-propagandist-and-color-revolution-ngo.html

    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.

    1. Self kicking for more exposure as it is quite prescient right now.

      3. Good Post – the ones working against us must be kept in mind,

      to ignore them is to allow them to continue. We’re going to have to fight back sometime, either now or later- when it’ll be much harder.

      If memory serves me,  it was Mitt Romney who said ” what do they want? They have their i-phones….” on a leaked video of a closed meeting with TPTB.

    2. A Profound Message to Avaaz from Poet Gabriel Impaglione of Argentina

    Avaaz, The International Campaign to Destabilize Bolivia

    snip

    Gentlemen of Avaaz,

    I firmly request that my email address be removed from your message-distribution lists, a request that I reiterate once again.

    You circulate information that is slanted, manipulated by spurious interests; you convoke cunning and one-sided initiatives that represent the interests of the colonialist claw; you speak of peace, and when you speak of peace you speak of submitting to unipolar greed; when you speak of peace you speak of occupation and dependency; when you speak of peace you speak with the language of terrorism that is a scourge of the peoples and you pretend to impose “democratic” models that are nothing more than strategic-management schemes for subjection and for the avid desires of the imperial alliances.

    The violence in Syria will cease when the forces that act to destabilize that country are shipped back to their imperial bases. The horror that the Syrian people are living is the horror of the imperial intervention, of the select world of capital.

    The self-determination of the peoples is the first concept that you violate with your campaigns cosmetically disguised with do-good pacifism.

    Information in the service of the causes of greed is as aberrant as the seditious groups infiltrated into the societies that come under the stare of perversity.

    The Syrian Spring burgeons in the work, education, culture, sovereignty, dignity, self-determination of the Syrian people, there is no Spring on the imperial geopolitical chessboards, it is impossible to design Springs in the halls of capital and the arms industry. That which you call the Syrian Spring is the Syrian Hell, and the interests that move those savage circles of sulfur and lucre color your communiqués and evidence the display of perversion and lies.

    Will other peoples in the world remain on the list of your peace campaigns?
