Genocide: Indonesia Is Bombing West Papua Killing Indiscriminately

“Slow Motion Genocide”: Indonesia Is Bombing West Papua — and Nobody’s Talking About ItByDarius Shahtahmasebi In May 2016, a fact-finding mission conducted by the Brisbane Archdiocese’s Catholic Justice and Peace Commission reported that West Papua was experiencing a “slow-motion genocide.” The report also warned that West Papua’s indigenous population is at risk of becoming “an anthropological museum exhibit of a bygone culture.” The culprit behind these atrocities is none other than the Indonesian military, which has long received immense protection from the United States, as well as from regional allies like Australia. Rather than withdrawing its support for the practice of wiping out the victims in West Papua, these countries continue to enable Indonesia as it carries out numerous atrocities, which receive close to zero media coverage. For example, just last month the Jakarta Post reported that the Indonesian military shot dead a parishioner standing on his church’s front porch, …

BREAKTHROUGH IN EXPLOSIVE LAWSUIT AGAINST MONSANTO A San Francisco lawsuit against Monsanto and its weedkiller, Roundup, is moving forward. And it’s just received a new green light from the judge in the case. Monsanto’s lawyers are bracing for a deep level of attack, which they were hoping to avoid. The judge has ruled the jury can hear testimony on this issue: Monsanto suppressed evidence that Roundup causes cancer. Reporter Carey Gillam has the story (The Guardian, 5/22): “At the age of 46, DeWayne Johnson is not ready to die. But with cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say he probably has just months to live. Now Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate.” “On 18 June, Johnson will become the first person to take the global seed and chemical company to trial on allegations that it has spent decades hiding the cancer-causing dangers of its popular Roundup herbicide products – and his …

Whither Sarawak As CMSB Nosedives? 23 May 2018
According toBernama, the present Chief Minister of Sarawak, Abang Johari, has confirmed that the Editor of this website is still banned from entering the state. He has not yet made up his mind whether to revoke a ban slammed on the writer, along with a number of prominent agency journalists back in 2008, after they visited Penan blockades protesting against the logging of their indigenous lands. Perhaps the sense of threat in the minds of the leading party PBB and its BN allies as they contemplate how to respond to the changed political scene, is related to this week’s release of a statement by the state’s largest conglomerate CMSB, largely owned by the family of the Governor Taib Mahmud. CMSB’s shares went into a nosedive on Friday as the likely implications of proposed anti-corruption reforms on the favoured position of this company sank in with shareholders. Those shareholders fled, showing a plunge of prices after lunch of 30%, before…

Look Who STILL Hasn't Smelt The Coffee! 19 May 2018
A week on and it is clear that many people who have got far too used to power for far too long remain in relative denial about what the advent of the ‘New Malaysia’ will mean for them. First up, Taib Mahmud. This ultimate wheeler dealer and kleptocrat extraordinaire has been flying over from Sarawak ever since BN lost, seeking to cut deals with the new establishment controlled by his old political ally Dr Mahathir. This despite the immediate calls from within that state to remind the rest of Malaysia that for them the liberation will not have come until the Governor’s hands are finally prized off the state economy, which he has largely placed into his family ownership. If Taib did not get the message the markets did. The 30% crash after lunch on Friday of CMSB shares (Taib’s main family conglomerate) was as clear a statement of ‘guilty as charged’ as could have been admitted. Mahathir had just announced there would be no more cr…
