NO A LA INTERVENCION DE ESTADOS UNIDOS EN VENEZUELA (tags)

GEORGE SOROS' EVIL EMPIRE IS EXPOSED (Attn: LA Indymedia) (tags)

This is an interesting analysis of Billionaire finanical predator, George Soros, and his covert funding and sponsorship of the pro-establisment "Peace movement" in the USA.

Soros has also provided funding to Indymedia(!) with its contribution to LA Indymedia during the protests at the Democratic Party convention in 2000.
