Stranger than Fiction? Mystery lurks behind protest

2 May 2000

Paul Jackson

Many will be surprised when true nature of demonstrators is known

Someone, somewhere -- in the FBI, CIA, RCMP, CSIS, MI5, MI6 and other intelligence and police agencies in the western world -- must be asking a question that one day will unravel with damning consequences.

The question is: Who is covertly financing and directing the protest groups that rocked the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Seattle, threatened to close down the International Monetary Fund (IMF) meetings in Washington, and now are focusing on the World Petroleum Congress in Calgary in June?

How is it these supposedly motley crews -- looking like the disorganized flotsam and jetsam of the world's radical left -- can be so well organized?

What planning goes into shipping thousands of these zealots to Seattle, Washington and soon Calgary?

Where did they get their targets and how did they manage communication, travel and accommodation plans on such a vast scale?

Who delighted in seeing the carnage in the streets of Seattle, and savours the disruptions that may soon occur upon the streets of Calgary?

And why -- in democratic nations like the United States and Canada -- are the representatives of legitimate worldwide organizations being made to perspire and even fear what may befall them?

Well, sooner or later, we are going to find out, and then the sham of those who pretend to be so concerned about the environment, child labour in the Third World and 101 other bogus 'matters of conscience' will be revealed.

Here are three immediate possibilities:

  • Libya's Moammar Gadhafi.
  • Iraq's Saddam Hussein.
  • Afghanistan's Osama bin Laden

All are prone to promote world terrorism with an aim to destabilize the western democracies.

A trial is now under way in Lockerbie, Scotland, involving suspected Libyan agents' role in the 1988 downing of Pan Am flight 103 and the deaths of its 259 passengers, and bin Laden -- the "elusive billionaire" -- is being fingered by the FBI as financing terrorism by Algerian extremists -- including a Canadian connection.

Let's backtrack a bit. From the 1950s to the 1990s, western democracies witnessed all kinds of mass protest movements against the policies of their elected governments.

We had groups like the "Ban the Bomb"' movement wanting the west to get rid of its nuclear weapons, groups urging us to disarm completely and trust the Soviet Union to later do the same, student protest groups spawning riots on issue after issue, and actually bringing down the government of France's Charles de Gaulle, and groups with military wings like the Irish Republican Army.

Find an issue or manufacture one, and some radical group would spring up to oppose it.

We now know many of these causes were orchestrated by Moscow and its puppet regimes in Eastern Europe -- particularly East Germany -- and the groups financed by the Kremlin and its front organizations.

Moscow was involved in shipping arms to the IRA, and Moscow and Beijing were behind much of the Vietnam anti-war movement.

The collapse of the Soviet Union and the opening of files has also revealed any number of the west's left-wing and liberal politicians and bureaucrats had been co-opted by our enemies.

Much of this was known or suspected by our intelligence organizations, but kept under wraps for either legal or security reasons -- or to prevent mass unease or even panic by western society.

Some of the culprits in the Moscow/Beijing-directed operations were out-and-out traitors, some sold out for money, some were blackmailed, and many were simply 'useful' dupes.

Some of these "useful dupes," such as the unilateral disarmament types, were astonished to learn they had been used as pawns and were regarded as "idiots" by their puppetmasters.

Ten-to-one, a lot of us will again be surprised -- even stunned -- when the true identity and nature of the latest radical protest groups are revealed.
