It‘s been verified… protestors at Ferguson were paid to participate!

Billionaire George Soros is the founder and chairman of Open Society Foundation (OSF), which has a mission to “work to build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to participation by all people.”

In accordance with this mission, OSF annually donates millions to groups and organizations that support its cause. In 2013 alone, OSF dedicated more than $111 million to its programs around the U.S., including Campaign for Black Male Achievement, Equality Fund, Campaign for a New Drug Policy, Open Society Institute – Baltimore, Special Initiatives and Partnerships, Democracy Fund, and more.

But, in addition to these investments, OSF wrote on its blog in December 2014 that it “invested $2.5 million to support frontline community groups in Ferguson, as well as develop a national database on the police use of force – both to better identify problematic practices and examples of effective, responsive, and accountable policing.”

OSF announced that same month that it would be donating $2.9 million more to the social movements in Ferguson and Staten Island. These grants went to the Organization for Black Struggle and Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, key players in these protests.

In OSF’s own words, it gave millions “in response to the recent events in Ferguson and Staten Island” to support frontline groups and to “advance the work on the ground.” Money flowed into those protests.
