A Rockefeller non-profit organization sends millions of dollars to entities linked with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), considering them the primary beneficiaries of their substantial contributions.
The Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF), which in addition to financing environmental initiatives in China, reinforces projects of significant dimensions promoted by the CCP, revealed The Washington Free Beacon on Jan. 15.
The RBF fund wrote in its 2019 tax forms: “China has the potential to lead the world in sustainable approaches to development,” among other comments.
An analysis of the tax documents revealed that the RBF sent $750,000 to the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development, which is part of the State Council of China under the CCP, and is responsible for China’s administrative functions.
This department of the CCP is chaired by the vice-premier of the State Council, Han Zheng.
The RBF also sent $100,000 to the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Lancang-Mekong Environmental Cooperation Center, under the direct control of the CCP.
Other organizations supposedly dedicated to environmentalism collectively received $1.2 million, and another, committed to the Belt and Road initiative, obtained $800,000.
The Belt and Road Initiative is an ambitious project to build infrastructure in developing countries, financed by the CCP.
This initiative is strongly criticized for imposing huge debts that end up transferring all revenues to the CCP, implying the loss of debtors’ sovereignty.
One example is Sri Lanka’s which had to cede a port on its island after defaulting on its debt, giving the CCP a crucial maritime base in the Indo-Pacific, says The Washington Free Beacon.
Furthermore, the Belt and Road initiative’s works have caused significant environmental destruction, which should be contradictory to the supposed environmentalism promoted by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
The Gatestone Institute, a center for international studies, spoke out about this controversial global project, questioning the so-called “debt-traps” with which the Communist Party of China (CCP) grants loans to emerging countries and then permanently submits them when they are unable to service the debt.
“A few of these bilateral packages appear contrived to imprison already impoverished states into realms of permanent economic vassalage to China,” the institute said on Aug. 28.
“The economic benefits, however, of some of these deals between China and poor third world countries in Africa and Latin America are questionable,” added the Gatestone Institute.
The aggressiveness of the CCP’s projects, with which it focuses its supposed ‘leadership’ worldwide, led it to be considered a threat.
