NEW YORK – A group that has been mobilizing online support for Occupy Wall Street is organizing the live stream of an upcoming global financial forum by the anti-Wall Street protesters.
The group coordinating the live stream, Avaaz, was founded as a joint venture of MovOn.org and Res Publica, two organizations funded directly by George Soros as well as by the Soros-funded Tides Center.
Avaaz is a globalist online group whose state mission is a near-quote from radical community organizer Saul Alinsky’s manifesto “Rules for Radicals.”
Avaaz states it is seeking to “organize citizens of all nations to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want.”
In “Rules for Radicals”, the community organizer discussed “the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.”
“Red Army: The Radical Network that must be defeated to save America” exposes the extremists behind Occupy Wall Street along with the radical socialist network that seized political power in Washington over decades, shaped Obama’s presidential agenda and threatens the very future of the U.S.
WND reported last week MoveOn.org is planning to launch a protest movement of its own to complement the Occupy Wall Street momentum with the stated goal of “make[ing] Wall Street pay” and rebuilding the entire U.S. financial system.
MoveOn.org’s funding source of the Tides Foundation may be telling. Another grantee of Tides is Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after “Arab Spring” protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.
The new MoveOn.org Wall Street campaign serves as further evidence that the anti-Wall Street movement is a well-planned campaign and not the spontaneous uprising its leaders claim.
WND broke the story that Fenton Communications, a public relations firm closely partnered with Tides, represented the anti-Wall Street march past millionaires’ homes in New York City two weeks ago.
Fenton also crafted the public-relations strategy of MoveOn.org and a who’s who of far-left causes, organizations and activists, from Soros himself to Health Care for America Now to a litany of anti-war groups.
Last week, MoveOn.org held a planning meeting in Manhattan to discuss ways to take on Wall Street in coordination with Occupy Wall Street.
An email sent to Moveon.org’s mailing list announced a “meeting for folks to come together to plan ways to Make Wall Street Pay in our own communities”
“We’ll focus on specific targeted campaigns that hold the big banks accountable,” continued the email.
“The Occupy Wall Street movement has put economic justice in the spotlight,” the email said. “The whole country is talking about how we can end the big banks’ excessive influence and Make Wall Street Pay to rebuild the economy for everyone.”
The email spelled out the new MoveOn campaign’s connection to Occupy Wall Street:
“How is this connected to Occupy Wall Street? Our goal is to launch targeted local campaigns to complement the amazing work being done by brave Occupy Wall Street protesters – something MoveOn members around the country have been asking for. And we’ll continue to do everything we can to support and stand in solidarity with #Occupy.”
No ‘spontaneous movement’
MoveOn.org is funded by Tides, which acts as a massive clearinghouse of donations to a slew of liberal groups. Critics have alleged the center acts to obscure the ultimate sources of donations by collecting significant sums of money from a few large donors and then funneling the money to thousands of liberal causes.
Soros’ Open Society Institute is a prominent Tides Center donor, giving the group $3.5 million between 2007 and 2009 alone.
