How Oppositionist Organizations Act Worldwide – From Egypt to Haiti

In one of the Wikileaks leakage – in which Pública (not-for-profit investigative journalism center in Brazil, founded by a team of women journalists) had access – shows the founder of this organization communicating often with analysts from Stratfor, an organization that mixes journalism, political analysis and espionage methods to sell “intel analysis” to clients such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Coca-Cola and Dow Chemical – who monitored environmentalists’ activities who opposed them – as well as U.S. Navy.

Canvas (acronym for Centre for Applied Non Violent Actions and Strategies) was founded by two Serbian leader students, who participated in the successful uprising that dethrone the dictator Slobodan Milosevic in 2000.

Those students organized creative protests, marches and acts that culminated in the destabilization of the regime. Then, they started to spread their knowledge, teaching opposition groups from many countries on how to organize and defeat governments.

This is the way they came to Venezuela, where they started to train opposition leaders back in 2005. In his TV show, late Hugo Chávez accused the group as being a Coup D’Etat group, and for being under US orders.
