Atlas Network in Latin America

The Atlas Network is affiliated with the powerful Mont Pelerin Society that was co-founded by Knight of Malta, Crown Prince to the non-existent Austrian throne, Otto von Habsburg (who also established the Pan-Europa Union)...


The Atlas Network works with 450 foundations, NGOs, think tanks and advocacy groups, with an operating budget of $5 million in 2016, coming from charitable and non-profit foundations from the US.
Atlas helped to alter the political landscape in various countries in Latin America and is effectively an extension of Anglo-American foreign policy. The think tanks associated with Atlas are financed by the Koch billionaire brothers, State Department and National Endowment for Democracy (NED).

The NED and the State Department funded Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), Freedom House and United States Agency for International Development (USAID), are the major entities who share guidelines and resources for concrete results in the asymmetric war.
15 of the most important organisations financed by Koch are: Americans for Prosperity, Cato Institute, Heritage Foundation, American Legislative Exchange Council, Mercatus Center, Americans for Tax Reform, Concerned Veterans of America, Leadership Institute, Generation Opportunity, Institute for Justice, Independent Institute, Club for Growth, Donors Trust, Freedom Partners and Judicial Watch.

The Atlas network has 13 affiliates in Brazil; 12 in Argentina, 8 in Chile and Peru; 5 in Mexico and Costa Rica; 4 in Venezuela, Uruguay, Bolivia and Guatemala; 2 in Dominican Republic, Ecuador and El Salvador: and 1 in Colombia, Panama, Bahamas, Jamaica and Honduras: https://peoplesdispatch.org/2018/08/...-libertarians/

The Atlas Network has financed a variety of organisations that influence the public and promote “right wing” propaganda in Latin america.

Records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, reveal efforts of US politicians to use Atlas´ think tanks to destabilise Venezuela in support of (?) the Maduro government.
As early as 1998, Cedice Libertad, the flagship of Atlas in Caracas, received regular financial support from the Center for International Private Enterprise.
There are other NGOs and foundations working for Atlas, like Provea (financed by the Open Society Foundation of George Soros, the Ford Foundation and the British embassy), the Civil Association of Citizen’s Power, and the Venezuelan Observatory of Social Conflict (which is financed by the NED).

In Brazil there are now about 30 “non-profit” institutions acting and collaborating with each other, like the Estudantes Pela Liberdade (Students for Liberty) and the MBL (Free Brazil Movement).
The Millennium Institute: founded in 2006, received funding from Bank of America, Merryll Lynch, Grupo RBS, Gerdau and Am-Cham Brazil. The Millennium Institute was instrumental in organising demonstrations against former President Dilma Rousseff.

The Interdisciplinary Centre of Ethics and Personal Economics of Rio de Janeiro: a think tank of Atlas that develops religious arguments that benefit the major corporations. The centre imitates the US Acton Institute financed by Trump´s Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos (sister of Erik Prince).
The DeVos family has also funded the Heritage Foundation.

In Argentina the Pensar Foundation of the Atlas Network became the political party PRO that propelled Mauricio Macri to the presidency in 2015.
Leaders of Pensar and Fundación Libertad (Freedom Foundation, also of Atlas) today occupy key positions in the Argentine administration.

In Honduras the Eléutera foundation was founded after the coup in 2009 against elected president Manuel Zelaya. The leader of Eléutera, Guillermo Peña Panting, previously worked at the Atlas think tank in North Carolina the John Locke Foundation and has given numerous seminars for the organization.
The present government of Honduras asked for the political support of Eléutera: https://peoplesdispatch.org/2018/09/...on-the-ground/

The following interesting picture was released by Wikileaks (originally released more than 10 years ago), from a classified Pentagon paper.
It shows that the World Bank, IMF, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and Bank for International Settlements (BIS) are used as as “U.S. diplomatic-financial venues” to pressure foreign state and nonstate actors and:
Quote:
apply unilateral and indirect financial power through persuasive influence to international and domestic financial institutions regarding availability and terms of loans, grants, or other financial assistance to foreign state and nonstate actors.


The picture, text comes from the hundreds of pages document “Field Manual (FM) 3-05.130, Army Special Operations Forces Unconventional Warfare” (2008): https://file.wikileaks.org/file/us-fm3-05-130.pdf
