Robinson further criticized the Journal of Democracys sponsor, the National Endowment for Democracy, for having funded the independent Polish labor-unions (e.g., Solidarity) during the 1980s. Robinson wrote that Poland was "targeted for destabilization" and NED-aided Polish unions "were encouraged to mount explicitly political actions, and to mount them against governments, not business management". (p. 103).
