The most substantial change was deleting the claim that it was funded by the CIA. The basis for this claim in the Socialist Appeal article cited was that the precursor to the current organisation was created in 1976 by Joe Godson. The article states that he was Labour Attache at the US Embassy in the 1950's. While the role of Labor Attache's in funding groups around the world is well known, there is no direct evidence provided that such funds were involved in this case or that in 1976 Godson was still involved with the US Embassy (the article only cites his role in the 1950's. As such it is a big stretch to speculate on the source of funding. I have also changed the reference from (which is the website address) to Socialist Appeal which is the name of the publication on that site. Plus a few minor formatting changes. Bob.
