      NGO = non-government organisation.
      How many of these “NGOs” actually receive money, grants, premises, and actual salaries from the government?
      Once they accept money from the government, they can hardly be called “non-government”. They rely totally on government support.
      They are supposedly there to press for rights – and change… from the government.
      They dare not criticise or challenge the government (whichever party), for fear that their government grants and support will stop.
      Time, perhaps, for a different and more honest set of initials.
      Or maybe time for most of them to disband, and start again, honestly.
