Agents of Destabilization in Venezuela by Eva Golinger
I have been publishing articles from Global Research because they have a group of professionals that are constantly bringing to light what is covered up by the official media.
This article describes how Washington's did and is doing to destabilize Venezuela and from it we can become aware about some strategies used in other nations.
They are also in Brazil where the protests that started in 2013 was conducted by CIA.
I will publish just the beginning of the article and the link. Please, read it to be aware of how countries sovereignty have been destroyed.
We, Brazilians, lived under dictatorship for twenty years because US wanted it and now they keep intervening in our country. It aches knowing that other people's hands are manipulating the politics, hence the culture and understandment of our nationality.
Few Americans know about Washington foreign policy.
Having a shadow behind the scenes that never leaves.
Agents of Destabilization in Venezuela: The Dirty Hand of the National Endowment for Democracy
By Eva Golinger
Global Research, April 26, 2014
Anti-government protests in Venezuela that seek regime change have been led by several individuals and organizations with close ties to the US government. Leopoldo Lopez and Maria Corina Machado- two of the public leaders behind the violent protests that started in February – have long histories as collaborators, grantees and agents of Washington. The National Endowment for Democracy “NED” and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) have channeled multi-million dollar funding to Lopez’s political parties Primero Justicia and Voluntad Popular, and Machado’s NGO Sumate and her electoral campaigns.
These Washington agencies have also filtered more than $14 million to opposition groups in Venezuela between 2013 and 2014, including funding for their political campaigns in 2013 and for the current anti-government protests in 2014. This continues the pattern of financing from the US government to anti-Chavez groups in Venezuela since 2001, when millions of dollars were given to organizations from so-called “civil society” to execute a coup d’etat against President Chavez in April 2002. After their failure days later, USAID opened an Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) in Caracas to, together with the NED, inject more than $100 million in efforts to undermine the Chavez government and reinforce the opposition during the following 8 years.
