aferrismoon points out that the Berlin Wall came down on 9 11 - 9 November 1989.

The mainstream media lies to us about many of the big events.

What may appear to be the work of 'people power' or 'terrorists', is so often the work of people within governments.

On 6 November 2009, Tim Mohr explained that the fall of the Berlin Wall 'wasn't spontaneous but planned and staged'

Among the points made:

1. The fall of the wall was 'staged', as Munich’s Suddeutsche Zeitung has now explained.

2. The East German government planned the opening of the wall.

The West German government knew this.

3. Some days before the wall opened, the plan was discussed during a lunch meeting at East Berlin’s Palast hotel between Walter Momper, the mayor of West Berlin, and the official who would open the wall less than two weeks later, G√ľnter Schabowski.

The two men discussed which checkpoints could be opened to best make use of the subway system, as well as the volume of visitors to expect.

In George Washington's blog ( George Washington's Blog: Fascism Is Over ... If We Want It ) we read:

2 million Americans could all peacefully surround the White House and Capitol Hill, and hold signs saying 'we're not leaving until the Constitution and the rule of law are restored'...

Ukranian people stood up to tyranny and won. The East German people stood up to tyranny and won. The people of the Philippines, Serbia, Czechoslovakia, Indonesia and other countries around the world have won against tyranny whenever ordinary people have poured into the streets in massive numbers and demanded freedom.


There may be a problem here about historical accuracy.

People Power is usually only successful when it has the backing of the elite.

1. In the 1381 Peasants Revolt in England, the people went on the march. The king promised to meet the peasants' demands. The peasants headed homewards.

Most of the leaders of the revolt were then executed and the king broke his promises.

2. Now let's look at the UKRAINE.

The Orange Revolution looks like a CIA operation to replace a set of pro-Russian oligarchs with a set of pro-American oligarchs.

Ian Traynor, in The Guardian 26 November 2004 (US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev Special reports ...), described the Ukraine's Orange Revolution as 'an American creation, a sophisticated and brilliantly conceived exercise in western branding and mass marketing...

'The Democratic party's National Democratic Institute, the Republican party's International Republican Institute, the US state department and USAid are the main agencies involved in these grassroots campaigns as well as the Freedom House NGO and billionaire George Soros's open society institute. '

After the Orange Revolution, Mr Yushchenko personal popularity rating soon slumped to 20% as people realised they had been conned. ( Yushchenko scorned as Ukraine turns its back on the orange ... )

What happened in Serbia was also planned, apparently, by the USA. (US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev Special reports ...)

3. Now let us look at revolts in Eastern Europe, including Hungary and Romania.

In 1956 there was revolt in Hungary against the communist regime. There was no serious support for the rebels from the CIA and its friends and the revolt was crushed.

The 1989 revolt in Romania was successful.

An article apparently written by former Securitate officers ('Was This Your Revolution? This is How It Was!' Democratia, No. 36, 24-30 Sept. 1990) describes how the CIA and KGB organised the fall of Ceausescu.

Reportedly, key figures in the revolt were working for the CIA and KGB, including Militaru (allegedly a KGB-CIA double agent) and the former Securitate officer and adviser to Ceausescu, Dumitru Mazilu (allegedly a CIA agent), and Silviu Brucan (allegedly both a CIA and KGB agent).

Reportedly, just before the revolt, there were 'massive arrivals of so-called Hungarian tourists in Timisoara and Soviet tourists in Cluj'.

4. What about the Philippines?

By the mid 1980s, the CIA had decided that Marcos was no longer the person to run the Philippines. The CIA wanted someone more 'popular'. So a People Power movement was used to replace Marcos with Aquino.

5. Indonesia provides the best example of CIA-organised People Power.

At some point in the 1990s Suharto was seen by some Americans as having become too powerful and too independent minded.

Suharto was giving too many business contracts to his family and Chinese-Indonesian cronies, rather than to American companies like Ford.

Some people in the Pentagon considered the possibility of having a general such as Prabowo or Wiranto or Yuhhoyono take over.

In order to topple Suharto there would need to be riots.

In Indonesia, in the years 1997- 1998, there were riots in various parts of Indonesia. Some riots looked spontaneous and some looked as if they had been planned. (

Intelligence agencies

In Indonesia, trouble is often organised by the spies. Back in the 1950s the British and American intelligence agencies had organised rebellions in various parts of Indonesia, in order to undermine President Sukarno.(

The generals

In 1998 one of the key generals was Prabowo, son of Dr. Sumitro Djojohadikusumo, a former Finance Minister, said to have once worked with the British and the Americans against Sukarno.

Prabowo had learnt about terrorism at Fort Bragg and Fort Benning in the US. General Prabowo and terror (

In May 1998, Prabowo was commander of Kostrad, the strategic reserve, the regiment Suharto commanded when he took power in 1965.

Prabowo's friend Muchdi ran Kopassus (special forces) and his friend Sjafrie ran the Jakarta Area Command.

General Wiranto, the overall head of the military, was seen as a rival to Prabowo.

The American Defence Secretary,
William Cohen, was in Jakarta in January 1998 and he visited both Prabowo and Wiranto.

The CIA chief had also been a recent visitor to Jakarta. The CIA and the Pentagon were close to both Prabowo and Wiranto. (


At the start of May 1998, students were holding peaceful demonstrations on university campuses across the country. They were protesting against massive price rises for fuel and energy, and they were demanding that President Suharto should step down.

On May 12th, students at Jakarta's Trisakti University, many of them the children of the elite, planned to march to parliament to present the government with their demands for reform. The police prevented the students from marching.

Some time after 5pm, uniformed men on motorcycles appeared on the flyover which overlooks Trisakti. Shots rang out. Four students were killed.

Riots of May 13-14

On the 13th of May there were reports of rioting in the area around Trisakti. President Suharto was attending a conference in Egypt and the military top brass went off to Malang in East Java to attend a ceremony.

On the 14th of May, serious rioting took place in the Jakarta area. There were no signs of any uniformed soldiers on the streets.


Over 1,000 people died during these Jakarta riots, most having been burnt in malls and supermarkets but some having been shot or beaten.

Alleged involvement of the military in planning the riots

Father Sandyawan Sumardi, a 40-year-old Jesuit priest and son of a police chief, led an independent investigation into the events of May 1998.

As a member of the Team of Volunteers for Humanitarian Causes he interviewed people who had witnessed the alleged involvement of the military in organising the riots and rapes.
(The Riot Pattern in Jakarta and Surroundings - Beberapa Pola dalam ...) (

A security officer alleged that Kopassus (special forces) officers had ordered the burning down of a bank;

a taxi driver reported hearing a man in a military helicopter encouraging people on the ground to carry out looting;

shop-owners at a Plaza claimed that, before the riots, military officers tried to extract protection money;

a teenager claimed he and thousands of others had been trained as protesters;

a street child alleged that Kopassus officers ordered him and and his friends to become rioters;

there was a report of soldiers being dressed up as students and then taking part in rioting;

eyewitnesses spoke of muscular men with short haircuts arriving in military-style trucks and directing attacks on Chinese homes and businesses.

There were reports of children being encouraged to enter malls and then of the malls being set on fire;

there were allegations that muscular men with short haircuts had gang-raped little Chinese girls and then murdered some of them.

Suharto told he had lost the support of the military

Some of Suharto's former allies deserted him. Wiranto allowed students to occupy Parliament. Reportedly Wiranto reported to Suharto on May 20th that Suharto no longer had the support of the army. Suharto was forced to resign on May 21 and was replaced by Habibie, his Vice President.

The continuing importance of the military

Wiranto remained as chief of the armed forces. Wiranto's troops began removing the students from the parliament building.

One result of the May riots was that the military appeared to remain the power behind the throne. In 2004, General Yudhoyono became president.

In conclusion: a study of History may help us to understand how change comes about.

The Peasants' Revolt was defeated. But, the condition of the peasants did eventually improve due to a shortage of labour (caused by the Black death).

For your reading pleasure:

Peter Ackerman: billionaire sponsor of toxic NGO’s
. . . .Modeling himself after George Soros, Ackerman assumed the guise of Deep Thinker after earning a PhD from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where he now serves as President of the Board of Trustees. Like many other such schools, including Columbia University’s School of International Affairs, Fletcher is a breeding ground for spooks.

The Critical Montages report contains links to exchanges between Greenleft Weekly, an Australian radical newspaper, and some of Ackerman’s minions. It was kicked off by an interview with Eva Gollinger about American efforts to destabilize Venezuela in which she refers to NGO efforts to turn Venezuela students into shock troops against the government:

"On top of that, some of the same groups or individuals have participated since 2004 in training sessions with other US entities such as the Albert Einstein Institute and the International Centre on Non-Violent Conflict. These are the entities that were responsible for helping to promote, fund and advise the “coloured” revolutions in Eastern Europe [in the] Ukraine, Serbia, Yugoslavia, Georgia. They failed in Belarus and they began working here in April 2003, first with traditional opposition leaders and then, as in those movements in Eastern Europe, they used young people — students."

Ackerman founded the International Centre on Non-Violent Conflict (ICNC) and is responsible for all its funding. It should be mentioned, of course, that the millions of dollars that is required to keep this operation afloat came out of the piracy that Milken and Ackerman conducted at Drexel Burnham. As masters of the junk bond trade, they were responsible for companies firing tens of thousands of workers as a result of “asset stripping” to cover corporate debt.

I doubt whether any major event for the last few hundred years was organic and people led. Those that were, such as the Hungarian uprising, were quickly stifled by the Elite vermin.

In that case those brave men and women were begging the "democratic" West to help them, and were ignored, no doubt ending up tortured and killed many of them.

The elite are people's real enemy, beyond any minor local concerns.

Yeah, blame the elites for everything, typical communist thinking!

The topic of peoples revolutions is of huge importance right now.
I woke up due to looking at 911 and went on to look at, chemtrails, big pharma and its diabolical efforts, the NWO big banks, fake political movements and revisionist world history.

I kept thinking sooner or later that people would reach a critical mass and wake up as NWO crimes become more blatant and predictable.
I like several activist friends have been confounded over why no protests are taking place. We go to many small street protests that rarely get over 100 people, apathy is in the air!

I appreciate this blog covering this topic of great importance. The greatest myth may be the 60's and how the anti war movement impacted Vietnam. The mass media sell us the myth that people in the streets stopped that war.
A great doc "Sir No Sir" explores the role of US military grunts refusing to deploy or follow orders and the fraggin of superiors in ending the war. That in context with the bad trip through Laurel Canyon with Dave McGowan, led me to believe that the people have never done anything as mentioned by suraci.
I have even read about the French Revolution being a largely orchestrated event.

If true, I don't know how the hell we can get ourselves out of this mess. Sorry for the longwinded comment.

D'oh! I just spent ten minutes trying to find the article I read about the American banking millionaire who was running the non-violent thing, but without success, and then I come here and there's Hubris pointing us right at it. Thanks Hubris. Great article, huh?

Anyway read that and you'll see how Burma and all those monks were just more spook fakery.

Perhaps the only real people are the North Indian Naxalites? I ain't got much to go on for this apart from the fact that they get zero media converage. Still, in this bullshit media world that counts as a clue.
