National Endowment for Democracy and Hong Kong Protests

Non-governmental organizations traditionally are used to destabilize the socio-political situation.

 China has allowed them almost unlimited access in Hong Kong for decades. 

Unrest has been imminent since 1995, when the US State Department substantially enhanced the number of diplomatic missions in the city. 

After the years of preparation, NGOs managed to bring the people into the streets in 2014, who initially advocated universal suffrage and then moved on to demand independence from the PRC. 

Among NGOs that finance subversive activities in Hong Kong, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is the most prominent. 

In 2018, NED granted $200,000 to the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to «facilitate engagement on Hong Kong’s growing threats to guaranteed rights», $155,000 to the Center of Solidarity (SC) to «raise public awareness and promote participation in worker rights issues» and $90,000 to Hong Kong Justice Center (HKHRM) to «increase the international community’s awareness of human rights abuses in Hong Kong through advocacy». 

Months before the «umbrella revolution» in 2014 one of its leaders Martin Lee spoke in Washington to NED calling for material and political support for the upcoming demonstrations. 

The same took place on the eve of recent protests – on May 14 and on June 3, 4 and 11 NED held conferences on «new threats to civil society in Hong Kong» and «challenging the spread of China’s repression model within and beyond its borders».

PS The money is the least important paradoxically
it is the training and facilities provided by NGO's for a Gene Sharp Colour Revolution that is important - the leaders are Judas Goats and care nothing for people of Hong Kong just their foreign masters.
