  • @TaniaGroth: What is actually happening...

  • @Decolonise: LOL I don't have anything against Greta as a person. I love her spirit but it is sad that too many adults with political schemes to maintain their own privileges are circling around her like hawks.

  • @TaniaGroth: She clearly does not realize that she is a pawn on a larger chess-board. She has a mental condition and adults are mis-using her, not much different than woman who keeps dragging her daughter to beauty pageant after another...to satisfy her own needs.

International Crisis Group - Wikipedia

Funding

Crisis Group raises funds from mainly western governments, charitable foundations, companies and individual donors. In 2011/2012, 49% of its funding came from governments, 20% from philanthropic organisations, and 31% from individuals and private foundations.[citation needed] During 2012/2013 ‘unrestricted income for annual operations’ was $18.3 million with total expenditure of $21.9 million, with 49% of funds coming from governments, 23% from individuals and corporate foundations and 30% of ‘philanthropic organisations’,[4] where the difference between corporate foundations and 'philanthropic organisations' was not explained. In the early stages of Crisis Group's history, funding was much less diverse, mainly from co-founder George Soros, chairman of the Open Society Institute.[5]:551, note 28 Crisis Group has an Advisory Council composed of three groups named the President's Council, the International Advisory Council, and the Ambassador Council, which includes corporations like Chevron and Shell, as well as some members listed on its website as ‘Anonymous’.[6] Crisis Group has been criticised for serving the interests of its corporate and government funders.”

Criticism

Moisés Naím, a member of the board of directors of the International Crisis Group served as the Venezuelan Minister for Development for the centrist government of Carlos Andrés Pérez. In 2011 the International Crisis Group released a report intimating that the Venezuelan government of Hugo Chavez might suffer ‘unpredictable, possibly violent consequences’ if it did not audit the election results in which Chávez won.[13] The election results have been recognized as valid by 170 neutral international observers with the exception of the United States government, who along with allied governments, provides half of the funding for the International Crisis Group.[14][15]
