On December 2, Chinas foreign ministry finally sharpened its sword and announced that it would impose sanctions on some US non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that had behaved badly in the practice of Hong Kong.
There are five NGOs involved: the National Democracy Foundation, the Democratic Association for international affairs, the International Republican Institute, human rights watch and Freedom House.
What did they do in Hong Kong? What have they done in other countries?
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying announced that China will impose sanctions on five NGOs in response to the signing of the Hong Kong Bill of human rights and democracy into law by the United States.
After 2003, three CIS countries, including Georgia, successively changed their political power; after 2010, the Arab Spring swept through Tunisia, Egypt and other central and northeast African countries; in 2014, bloody conflicts and coups broke out in Ukraine.
In September 2014, there was an illegal occupy China incident in Hong Kong; in June 2016, there was a Mongkok riot, and then there has been a revision storm since June this year.
There is a rule in all these events, that is, on the surface, a group of internal opposition people carry out street politics, and then obtain the support of public opinion, and finally spread into a large-scale social movement subverting the regime.
However, if we probe into its essence, we can find that the real driving force behind it is the western power - people call these events Color Revolution.
In this invisible war, the main carrier is some international non-governmental organizations called NGOs, and one of the biggest forces is the National Democracy Foundation of the United States.
The National Democracy Foundation of the United States claims to be an NGO, but it was actually set up by the Reagan administration in 1983 to carry out political activities and psychological warfare that are not convenient for the government to directly engage in. More than 80% of its funds come from the government and Congress.
As we all know, it has a close relationship with the CIA and is even called the second CIA. Before and after the Hong Kong storm, the National Democracy Foundation of the United States provided a large amount of funds to various opposition organizations in Hong Kong.

According to public data, Hong Kong Human Rights Watch, a local NGO that pioneered the anti revisionist practice, has received funding from ned since 1995, with a total of nearly HK $15 million over the years.
For some reason, in 2014, the foundation suspended its direct assistance to the organization, but continued to transfer funds to organizations such as the National Institute for democracy in international affairs. By 2018, the foundation had invested at least HK $86 million in Hong Kong.
In addition to direct investment, the National Democracy Foundation of the United States also has a key task, which is to identify and train U.S. agents in Hong Kong. This time, they acted as the leader of port chaos.
On May 14 this year, the Foundation invited Li Zhuming, Luo Guancong and other Hong Kong Independence figures to participate in the seminar, the theme of which is revisionism. Li also won the annual democracy Award issued by the National Democracy Foundation of the United States.

According to the Ta Kung Pao, in 2012, the National Democracy Foundation of the United States allocated US $100000 to Huang Zhifeng through Ye Baolin, the director of the Catholic justice and peace committee. In March 2014, another HK $1.6 million was given to Huang Zhifeng.
In 2017, Yang Zhengxian, convener of Hong Kongs civil rights front, participated in the visiting program of the National Democracy Foundation of the United States.
People familiar with the situation told uncle Dao that the current operation process is as follows: if the United States wants to exert its efforts, the State Departments research and intelligence security agency will find out who is useful, who can be tossed and who is easy to control in the target area Then a report will be formed and reported to the CIA, which will issue instructions to NGOs such as the national democratic foundation of the United States and start field operations.
In addition to the Hong Kong Human Rights Watch, 65 local and overseas organizations, including the Taiwan independence organization Taiwan wing society, Hong Kong Canada Association, Macao Hong Kong Association and the Chinese democratic academy that planned the occupation of China five years ago, took the lead in the anti revisionist joint office letter in April.
NDI, the second largest organization on the sanctions list, is actually a subsidiary of the National Democracy Foundation. Since 1997, the association has been focusing on Hong Kong affairs. In 2002, the Chinese Affairs Department of the association established an office in Hong Kong.
In the Hong Kong democratization report (1997-2016) released by the association in September 2016, the association used seemingly scientific research methods to draw a conclusion that the degree of democratization in Hong Kong has declined dramatically in recent years under the background of one country, two systems.
As early as 2014, when the illegal occupation took place, the American Association for democracy in international affairs held various lectures and activities in Hong Kongs universities and neighborhoods, with themes including image building, speech skills and how to face the media, how to raise funds, etc. in February 2006, they also opened a one-year district council candidates and election managers campaign school, the purpose of which is to shadow 2007 District Council election.
NDI was founded in 1983
Releasing research reports and research results are the usual means for such NGOs. Human Rights Watch, founded in 1978, knows this.
This organization has been involved in Tibet, Xinjiang and the frontier ethnic areas for a long time, supporting some Xinjiang independence and Tibetan independence elements. As early as 2005, the organization, together with Kadeer and other Xinjiang independence elements, attended the hearings of the U.S. Congress and introduced how China violates human rights in Xinjiang to U.S. lawmakers. To this day, the organization has persistently defied the national policies and governance of the Chinese government in Xinjiang.
In the recent violence in Hong Kong, the members of the organization came directly to the stage. At the end of August, a foreigner who was knocked down by the police on the Hong Kong Railway was carrying a forged Swedish journalists certificate, whose real identity was a member of human rights watch.
The Institute of international republics was also established in 1983 as part of President Reagans Democratic plan. Although it was not affiliated with the National Democracy Foundation of the United States, it received financial assistance from the latter.
Freedom House, founded in 1941, is a think tank affiliated to the U.S. Department of defense. 66% of its budget comes from the U.S. government. According to the U.S. standards, it conducts the so-called annual assessment of democracy and freedom of all countries, which actually interferes with the politics of other countries.
In the Hong Kong turmoil, these organizations, without exception, issued a large number of anti-government statements such as police tyranny, civil disobedience and human rights violations to encourage and support the opposition and thugs.
In fact, the coups and insurgencies in almost all countries in the last two decades are inextricably linked to them, including the coup in Haiti in 2004, the coup in Honduras in 2009, the Color Revolution in Eastern Europe and the Arab Spring in the Middle East.

Why do some NGOs become the best carrier for western countries to carry out Color Revolution?
The reason is that the activities of these NGOs in the target country have very flexible means and characteristics: both openness and secrecy, both directness and permeability.
Ideology is the inner thought that inspires peoples action. First of all, some Western NGOs usually use the pretext of scientific research and social investigation to promote the change of peoples thoughts in the target areas. For example, these NGOs like to study such topics as democracy and freedom, human rights issues, voting and election, civil disobedience, non violent movement and legitimacy of political power.
Through these studies, these NGOs continue to throw out research reports with established positions, summarize the root causes of problems in the target society as the lack of democracy, summarize the solutions to problems as the realization of democracy, hold various seminars, forums, training courses, focus on influencing opinion leaders and the media, and finally affect the public.
On the website of the National Democracy Foundation of the United States, the organization made no secret of summarizing its working methods as seven points: helping the closed society Democrats, consolidating democracy, using multi-disciplinary means, cooperating with other democracy foundations, cultivating new partner organizations, promoting research on democracy, and building a worldwide movement.

Secondly, financial support is the most direct means for such NGOs to exert influence. Social movements need to mobilize resources, which cost money. Some Western NGOs usually provide funds to selected agents, local NGOs, media, universities, student organizations and even government projects for the reasons of funding, donation and public relations.
Finally, strategy and skill training is also an essential step in the stage of sports preparation and launch. In the situation in Hong Kong in recent months, although violent demonstrators claim that there is no big platform behind them, what we see is that they are highly organized, strategic and skilled. In fact, this kind of organization is the result of years of training.
Some people will ask, since some NGOs in the United States have become tools for the U.S. government to interfere in other countries internal affairs and subvert other countries political power, can other countries also use their own NGOs to go against the other way?
Its really hard to achieve. This technique is so skillful that America is afraid of being used to deal with it. No, the U.S. had a foreign agent registration law as early as 1938. Not only NGOs in other countries, but also government funded media will be watched by the U.S. Department of justice.
With the exposure of the role and role of some Western NGOs in the Color Revolution, other countries have also noticed that they must be strictly controlled.
As the target countries of these Western NGOs, Russia passed the NGO law in 2012 and the unwelcome organization law in 2015. In 2016, China passed the law of the peoples Republic of China on the administration of domestic activities of overseas non-governmental organizations.
Unfortunately, there is no similar law in Hong Kong, which makes these NGOs have space and ability to play a bad role in the practice storm.
On December 3, in response to the decision of the Ministry of foreign affairs of the peoples Republic of China to impose sanctions on five US NGOs the day before, the chief executive of the Hong Kong SAR, Lin zhengyuee, announced that relevant matters are foreign affairs, and the SAR government will cooperate and follow up as required by the central government.
We hope that Hong Kong will soon stop violence and bring chaos under control and restore peace.
On December 3, Lin said that the SAR government expressed strong opposition to the adoption of the Hong Kong Bill of human rights and democracy by the United States. The SAR government will cooperate and follow up the sanctions proposed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (source: Hong Kong media)
