Amnesty International is US State Department Propaganda
1 year ago

Amnesty run by US State Department representatives, funded by convicted financial criminals, and threatens real human rights advocacy worldwide.

Image: From Amnesty International USA's website, "Free Pussy Riot." "Help AI send a truckload of balaclavas to Putin." This childish stunt smacks of US State Department-funded Gene Sharp antics - and meshes directly with the US State Department's goal of undermining the Russian government via its troupe of US-funded "opposition activists" including "Pussy Riot." That Amnesty is supporting the US State Department's agenda should be no surprise, it is run literally by the US State Department's Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Organizations, Suzanne Nossel.

August 22, 2012 - Mistakenly considered by many as the final word on human rights worldwide, it might surprise people to know that AI is in fact one of the greatest obstacles to real human rights advocacy on Earth.

In its most recent 2012 annual report (page 4, .pdf), Amnesty reiterates one of the biggest lies it routinely tells:
"AI is funded mainly by its membership and public donations. No funds are sought or accepted from governments for investigating and campaigning against human rights abuses.
Amnesty International is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion."

This is categorically false.
AI is indeed funded and run by not only governments, but also immense corporate-financier interests, and is not only absolutely entwined with political ideology and economic interests, it is an essential tool used for perpetuating just such interests.

AI's Funding
Finding financial information on Amnesty International's website is made purposefully difficult - specifically to protect the myth that the organization is "independent."
Like any organized criminal operation, Amnesty separates compromising financial ties through a series of legal maneuvers and shell organizations.
Upon AI's website it states:
"The work carried out through AI's International Secretariat is organised into two legal entities, in compliance with United Kingdom law.  These are Amnesty International Limited ("AIL") and Amnesty International Charity Limited ("AICL"). AI Limited undertakes charitable activities on behalf of Amnesty International Charity Limited, a registered charity."
