Behind the violent national demonstrations in Colombia during the last eight days, there is the influence of the financier George Soros on leftist movements in many countries.
Soros has influenced activities to destabilize the country’s legal institutions for nearly 30 years and there are signs pointing in the direction of his protégé, Senator Gustavo Petro, according to Colombian journalist Vanessa Vallejo in one of her tweets on May 6.
The violent marches in Colombia have already left several dead, 540 police officers injured, 21 police stations destroyed, 43 others severely damaged, numerous small businesses looted and vandalized, and much more damage to public property.
Causes of the violent demonstrations
Although the protests were sparked by attempts from the government of President Iván Duque to impose an unsustainable tax reform, and another health reform also detrimental to Colombians, the discontent is being exploited by Petro to seize power, suggests Vallejo.
Petro, a former militant of the M19 guerrilla group, accused of murders, kidnappings, and many more unpunished crimes is accused of being behind the violence currently occurring in Colombia, and in fact, incited his followers to fuel it.
Soros and his relations with Petro and the FARC
Petro’s life as a guerrilla links him to the FARC guerrilla movement, also favored by the Colombian government in the face of enormous pressure and influence from Soros-sponsored organizations. He has also received funding through Soros-linked entities.
On the other hand, since the 1990s Soros has promoted the legitimization of narco-terrorist groups such as the FARC, financing a network of NGOs that, acting as his instruments, have weakened the state, blocked the eradication of illicit crops, and encouraged the legalization of drugs, according to Lia Fowler, U.S. journalist, and former CIA special agent.
Now, in the post-conflict stage, many analysts – among them Ricardo Puentes Melo—believe that Soros will do multi-million dollar business with the FARC, as a benefit for having been the main promoter of the Havana Peace Accords, through which the FARC retained coca production and gained political power in the Colombian Congress.
Petro lost the presidential elections in 2018, to the current president Iván Duque, supposedly conservative, but he would also be the favorite for those of 2022.
Soros and his relations with President Iván Duque and other politicians
In this context, President Iván Duque is clearly linked to tycoon Soros since he obtained a scholarship from the National Democratic Institute, an organization funded by the speculator, about 20 years ago.
Subsequently, he publicly exalted Soros’ postulates and his model of society. Then, together with Felipe Buitrago, he published “Orange Economy”, written with economic concepts that the consultant promoted in a seminar in Salzburg sponsored by Soros.
Likewise, it is rumored that his vice president, Martha Lucía Ramírez, has also benefited from juicy contracts with Soros’ NGOs.
Among other politicians, the mayor of Bogotá, Claudia Lopez, who holds the second-highest office in the country, has also been visited by Alejandro Soros, the son and apparent successor of his billionaire father, who also visited prominent politician Sergio Fajardo.
Another politician who is part of Soros’ circle is former President Juan Manuel Santos, who is on the board of directors of one of Soros’ New York-based organizations.
To further darken the uncertain future of Colombia, which already seems to be in the hands of the globalists, Duque is strengthening his relations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), with the complacent eyes of the Democratic Center party, home of former President Álvaro Uribe, who sponsored Duque’s rise to power.
