“All over the world people are rising up!” That’s the superficial view of protesting crowds in the streets in Hong Kong, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Bolivia, Spain, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, France, and elsewhere. But are all these situations identical? Is it always the same story: People angered by economic issues, protesting against governmental corruption? Are the people always good, and the governments always bad? And why do some protests get vastly more mainstream media coverage than others?

Today’s guest, globetrotting gadfly Andre Vltchek (check out his new book) has seen many of these situations firsthand. He is familiar with most of the nations where such protests are happening. And he says that there are basically two kinds of protest movements: the authentic ones directed against the bankster-capitalist-run US-NATO neoliberal Empire and its local stooges; and the Empire-funded phony color revolutions and rent-a-mob-driven coup attempts against governments targeted by the Empire.

As I wrote in a forthcoming Crescent International article:

Why are many of the protestors in Hong Kong, Iraq, Lebanon, and Iran lashing out at the wrong targets? Primarily because they are being manipulated by their real oppressors. All of these protests show signs of being infiltrated by CIA-linked networks responsible for the rise of “color revolutions” around the world. CIA color revolutions, given plausible deniability through USAID, NED, and NGO front groups, are a 5thGeneration Warfare (5GW) tactic aimed at pressuring, destabilizing, and overthrowing governments that resist imperial plunder.

The Hong Kong protests are re-using the original color revolution color—black, the symbol of OTPOR, the CIA-sponsored protest movement that overthrew Milošević in Serbia. CIA proxies lavished many tens of millions of dollars on OTPOR during the late 1990s, financing the disguised coup that overthrew Milošević on 5 October 2000. The same agencies, and presumably some of the same individuals, are undoubtedly behind the Hong Kong riots, whose purpose is to destabilize China on behalf of US imperialism.

The CIA’s OTPOR veterans are obviously present in Lebanon (and presumably Iraq and Iran). Sometimes they don’t even bother to disguise themselves. Consider the photo below taken by Andre Vltchek, which shows a huge a CIA-manufactured OTPOR clenched black fist with the Arabic word thawra (“revolution”)—a stronger version of the Serb otpor (“resistance”).

Someone burned this OTPOR fist after the photo was taken—a good sign!

    One place you can be almost certain there will be no uprising or mass protests is Britain, because it is the HQ of global finance and the NWO. That in itself is a big clue that most uprisings are orchestrated by UK-USA empire.

    If the Conservatives win and continue Austerity that will happen. It will come unexpectedly and spontaneously as in the “authentic uprisings”.

  3. The CIA and the Mossad and MI6 are the agent provocateurs and the perpetrators in all of these regime change deals and are acting at the orders of their zionist masters, they are the trinity of evil in this world.

    Bolivia is now run by a female lawyer and it just re-established relations with Israel.

    That should tell you something.

    Basically, revolutions in US-aligned countries = GOOD, revolutions in US non-aligned countries = BAD.

    Never mind the same demand, the same violence, the same masked men.

    Move along, nothing to see here.
