Is it really democracy Hong Kongers want? Or is it a level playing field? This banner screams, "Down with Capitalism-- Occupy Central". (image by www.leela.net)

I have been watching the Occupy Central Movement with some detachment (some are also calling it the Umbrella Movement, since protestors sport umbrellas against the tropical sun and afternoon showers). The rubber stamp, Ministry of Truth-Western mainstream media is kowtowing to the Washington-London-Paris consensus, declaring that Occupy Central is hungering for Western style "democracy", that it is bigger than Hong Kong. It all sounds so predictably deja vu. Knowing that free-wheeling Hong Kong is gladly letting CIA front NGO National Endowment for Democracy operate on its soil, is all we need to know. The main "non" governmental organizations (NGOs) that do the CIA's bidding around the world are:

American Center for International Labor Solidarity

Center for International Private Enterprise

Ford Foundation

Freedom House

International Republican Institute (IRI)

National Democratic Institute (NDI)

National Democratic Institute for International Affairs

National Endowment for Democracy (NED)

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)
