RICHARD GREEMAN—Fortunately, in the past few weeks the League for the Rights of Man and other such humanitarian groups have at last turned out to protest police brutality, while committees of artists and academics have signed petitions in support of the Yellow Vests’ struggle for democratic rights, condemning the government and media. At the same time, Yellow Vests are more and more converging with Ecologists (“End of the Month/End of the World/Same Enemy/Same Struggle”), feminists (who play a major role in the movement). Workers have also played an important role, many of them active as opponents of the bureaucracy in their unions.

PATRICE GREANVILLE—DN! descent into a Faustian pact with the murderous establishment is mirrored by the runaway corruption we now find in the so-called “human rights industry”. While many global NGOs were clearly and undeniably created as fronts for the CIA and other US government agencies to be used as instruments of destabilisation in various formulas, from outright coups to “color revolutions,” etc. (the NED, National Endowment for Democracy is perhaps one of the best exemplars of this lot), since the mid 1960s, and accelerating in the late 1970s, it has become also irrefutable that Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders, and the more recent entry, Lawyers Without Borders, plus a host of other onetime reputable outfits, have also been penetrated by US state operatives, rich foundations, or are operating knowingly as willing collaborators.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—So these are ideas that have been in circulation for many years. That gun is loaded and ready to fire.Bolton trussed up his 2010 confession using an example that most people would agree with: that it was reasonable for the Allied forces to deliberately deceive the Nazis about the nature of the D-Day invasion. But we know John Bolton better than that by now. This PNAC director and architect of the Iraq war once threatened to murder a foreign official’s children because his successful diplomatic efforts were putting a damper on the manufacturing of consent for the Iraq invasion. He wasn’t defending the use of deception in crucial military options used to halt tyrants trying to take over the world, he was defending the use of deception in the senseless wars of aggression that he has built his political career on advancing.
