A protester throws an umbrella at riot police as fellow demonstrators blocked the main street to the financial Central district outside the government headquarters in Hong Kong September 29, 2014.
The goal of the US in Hong Kong is clear - to turn the island into an epicenter of foreign-funded subversion with which to infect China's mainland more directly.
Protesters of the "Occupy Central" movement in Hong Kong shout familiar slogans and adopt familiar tactics seen across the globe as part of the United States' immense political destabilization and regime change enterprise. Identifying the leaders, following the money, and examining Western coverage of these events reveal with certainty that yet again, Washington and Wall Street are busy at work to make China's island of Hong Kong as difficult to govern for Beijing as possible.
Naming Names: Who is Behind "Occupy Central?"
Several names are repeatedly mentioned amid coverage of what is being called "Occupy Central," the latest in a long line of US-engineered color revolutions
, and part of America's vast, ambitious global geopolitical reordering
which started in earnest in 2011 under the guise of the so-called "Arab Spring
Benny Tai, a lecturer of law at the University of Hong Kong, is cited by various sources across the Western media as the primary organizer - however there are many "co-organizers" mentioned alongside him. The South China Morning Post
in an article titled, "Occupy Central is on: Benny Tai rides wave of student protest to launch movement (1)
," mentions most of them (emphasis added):
Political heavyweights including Civic Party chairwoman Audrey Eu Yuet-mee, former head of the Catholic diocese Cardinal Jospeh Zen Zi-kiun and Democratic Party founding chairman Martin Lee Chu-ming addressed the crowd.
The Post also mentions (emphasis added):
Jimmy Lai Chi-Ying, the embattled boss of Next Media who is under investigation by the Independent Commission Against Corruption over donations to pan-democrat politicians, said he arrived immediately after a call from Martin Lee Chu-ming.
Benny Tai regularly attends US State Department, National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its subsidiary the National Democratic Institute (NDI) funded and/or organized forums. Just this month, he spoke at a Design Democracy Hong Kong (NDI-funded
) conference on political reform
. He is also active at the University of Hong Kong's Centre for Comparative and Public Law (CCPL) - also funded by NDI
. CCPL's 2013-2014 annual report
lists Benny Tai as attending at least 3 of the center's functions, as well as heading one of the center's projects.
Martin Lee, Jimmy Lai, and Joseph Zen are all confirmed as both leaders of the "Occupy Central" movement and collaborators with the US State Department. Martin Lee, founding chairman of the Democratic Party in Hong Kong, would even travel to the United States this year
to conspire directly with NED as well as with politicians in Washington. Earlier this year, Lee would even take to the stage of NED's event "Why Democracy in Hong Kong Matters
." Joining him at the NED-organized event was Anson Chan, another prominent figure currently supporting the ongoing unrest
in Hong Kong's streets.
