"US democracy warriors drive protests

By Ian Traynor
November 27, 2004

Washington has exported a new battle-hardened style of revolution to Kiev.

With their websites and stickers, their pranks and slogans aimed at banishing widespread fear of a corrupt regime, the democracy guerillas of the Ukrainian Pora youth movement have already notched up a famous victory – whatever the outcome of the dangerous stand-off in Kiev.

Ukraine, traditionally passive in its politics, has been mobilised by the young democracy activists. It will never be the same again.

But while the gains of the orange-bedecked “chestnut revolution” are Ukraine’s, the campaign is a United States creation, a sophisticated and brilliantly conceived exercise in Western branding and mass marketing that, in four countries in four years, has been used to try to salvage rigged elections and topple unsavoury regimes.

Funded and organised by the US Government, deploying US consultancies, pollsters, diplomats, the two big US parties and US non-government organisations, the campaign was first used in Europe in Belgrade in 2000 to beat Slobodan Milosevic at the polls.

Richard Miles, the US ambassador in Belgrade, played a key role. Last year, as US ambassador in Tbilisi, he repeated the trick in Georgia, coaching Mikhail Saakashvili in how to bring down Eduard Shevardnadze.

Ten months after the success in Belgrade, the US ambassador in Minsk, Michael Kozak, a veteran of similar operations in central America, notably in Nicaragua, organised a near identical campaign to try to defeat Belarus hard man Alexander Lukashenko. That one failed.

Experience gained in Serbia, Georgia and Belarus has been invaluable in plotting to beat Leonid Kuchma’s regime in Kiev.

The operation – engineering democracy through the ballot box and civil disobedience – is now so slick that the methods have matured into a template for winning other people’s elections.

Irony and street comedy mocking the regime have been hugely successful in puncturing public fear and enraging the powerful. In the centre of Belgrade is a dingy office staffed by computer-literate youngsters who call themselves the Centre for Non-Violent Resistance.

If you want to know how to beat a regime that controls the mass media, the judges, the courts, the security apparatus and the voting stations, the young Belgrade activists are for hire.

They emerged from the anti-Milosevic student movement, Otpor, meaning resistance.

The catchy, single-word branding is important. In Georgia last year, the parallel student movement was Khmara. In Belarus, it was Zubr. In Ukraine, it is Pora, meaning high time.

Stickers, spray paint and websites are the young activists’ weapons. Irony and street comedy mocking the regime have been hugely successful in puncturing public fear and enraging the powerful.

The Democratic Party’s National Democratic Institute, the Republican Party’s International Republican Institute, the US State Department and USAid are the main agencies involved in these grassroots campaigns as well as the Freedom House NGO and billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Institute.

If the events in Kiev vindicate the US in its strategies for helping other people win elections and take power from anti-democratic regimes, it is certain to try to repeat the exercise.

The places to watch are Moldova and the authoritarian countries of central Asia."

Comment from blog owner in 2004:

Surprise, surprise! This is all a cynical ploy by the USA to spread its influence and power through the former Soviet Union countries. (The CIA was doing this sort of thing in the 1960s, in South America, and look what happened to countries like Chile.) The U.S. wants to turn these countries into free-market economies so U.S. corporations have new markets in which to expand. Don’t believe the bullsh*t they espouse about “democracy” and “freedom.”
