Dirt List of Companies Supporting Atrocities in Burma

Australia 's trade and investment relationship with Burma. In 2005, Australian imports from Burma totalled $15 million and Australian exports to Burma amounted to $40 million.
AUSTRALIAN federal police have been training security forces for Burma's military leadership for years, according to Greens Senator Kerry Nettle.

Senator Nettle made the claim at a rally in Sydney today to protest against the crackdown by Burma's military junta against protesters in Rangoon.

Senator Kerry Nettle, a member of the Australian Coalition for Democracy in Burma, said the Government should immediately suspend trade and security ties with Burma.

The Annual AFP Report 2002-03 indicates the AFP has and still is working with Burman Police to introduce its AFP "The Law Enforcement Cooperation Program (LECP)"

In 2002-03 $47 million was appropriated to the AFP over four years for the expansion of "The Law Enforcement Cooperation Program (LECP)"

The delivery of AFP training programs in overseas locations is designed to increase the capacity of partner law enforcement agencies to assist the AFP in the offshore disruption of transnational crime groups. In the past 12 months, LECP has sponsored law enforcement training programs in Burma, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Timor Leste using Australian taxpayer funds to do so.

In the 2003-04 Annual AFP Report the AFP states its indication to expand its number of AFP offices due to extra members joining in the London, Washington and Kuala Lumpur offices which are focussed on counter-terrorism. Offices in Bangkok, Rangoon and Beirut increased the number of AFP officers deployed in the International Network to 65, located in 32 offices across 26 countries.


Burma is a country ruled by one of the longest running and most brutal military dictatorships in the world; a dictatorship charged by the United Nations with a “crime against humanity” for its systematic abuses of human rights, and condemned internationally for refusing to transfer power to the legally elected Government of the country – the party led by Nobel Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

In response to calls from Burma’s democracy movement, the Burma Campaign UK and other campaign groups around the world have been pressuring companies to sever business ties with Burma.

Greens make Liberal-Burma oil link

Greens Senator Kerry Nettle says the Federal Government must 'ask its Liberal Party friends' not to invest in Burma. The Greens have called on the Federal Government to suspend corporate investment and security training in Burma until freedom and democracy is restored.

A day after Prime Minister John Howard said Australia did not have trade links with Burma, Greens Senator Kerry Nettle says a Liberal Party-linked business, Twinza Oil, has signed a joint oil and gas venture with Burma.

Senator Nettle says Mr Howard and Foreign Minister Alexander Downer must follow the lead of France and suspend corporate investment in Burma until freedom and democracy is restored.

"We are one of few countries in that we do not have trade sanctions with Burma," she said. "We have a trade relationship with Burma that is closely linked to the Liberal Party. "It is incumbent on the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister to ask their Liberal Party friends not to continue to invest in financial dealings with the military dictatorship in Burma."

USA: 6 Die From Brain-Eating Amoeba in Lakes

By CHRIS KAHN – 1 day ago

PHOENIX (AP) — It sounds like science fiction but it's true: A killer amoeba living in lakes enters the body through the nose and attacks the brain where it feeds until you die.

Even though encounters with the microscopic bug are extraordinarily rare, it's killed six boys and young men this year. The spike in cases has health officials concerned, and they are predicting more cases in the future.

"This is definitely something we need to track," said Michael Beach, a specialist in recreational waterborne illnesses for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"This is a heat-loving amoeba. As water temperatures go up, it does better," Beach said. "In future decades, as temperatures rise, we'd expect to see more cases."

According to the CDC, the amoeba called Naegleria fowleri (nuh-GLEER-ee-uh FOWL'-erh-eye) killed 23 people in the United States, from 1995 to 2004. This year health officials noticed a spike with six cases — three in Florida, two in Texas and one in Arizona. The CDC knows of only several hundred cases worldwide since its discovery in Australia in the 1960s.

In Arizona, David Evans said nobody knew his son, Aaron, was infected with the amoeba until after the 14-year-old died on Sept. 17. At first, the teen seemed to be suffering from nothing more than a headache.

Australian Cult: Twelve Tribes Community arrives in Katoomba, Blue Mountains (NSW)

Brisbane - Sydney, Australia -- A bizarre bible cult, which advocates beating children before they are old enough to walk, is recruiting in Queensland and New South Wales.

Sources say its set up camp in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast (Qld) also Picton Galston and Katoomba in (NSW).

Twelve Tribes mission, also called Messianic Communities the group is attractive to teenagers and young adults with its carefree life style.

But the parent cult has a lengthy court history of child abuse and abduction in the United States. In one high profile case, Darlyn Church, 13 claimed she was stripped to her underwear and given a seven hour "scourging" with a cane. Defecting senior members Michael Painter and James Howell have claimed some have been beaten almost to the point of death. US authorities have discovered infants who died at childbirth, buried on cult property. Child deaths, often through negligence, go unreported.

Their treatment of children makes Twelve Tribes a favorite subject for US documentary makers.

Cult children are not allowed toys, pets, or bicycles and are schooled on site. They can be beaten for showing emotion, imagination, for playing make-believe, for not responding on the first command and even crying. Children are taught to love their beatings and neglecting to discipline a child is regarded as an act of hatred.

US Jury finds Warren Jeffs guilty of rape

The leader of a polygamous Mormon splinter group has been convicted of rape-as-an-accomplice for performing a wedding between a 19-year-old man and a 14-year-old girl.

Warren Jeffs, 51, could get life in prison after a trial that threw a spotlight on a renegade community along the Arizona-Utah line where as many as 10,000 of Jeffs' followers practice plural marriage and revere him as a mighty prophet with dominion over their salvation.

Prosecutors said Jeffs forced the girl into marriage and sex against her will.

The jury deliberated about 16 hours over three days. On Tuesday morning, the judge replaced a juror with an alternate for undisclosed reasons.

While polygamy itself was not on trial -- the couple were monogamous -- the case focused attention on the practice of polygamy in Utah, where it has generally been tolerated in the half-century since a government raid in 1953 proved a public relations disaster, with children photographed being torn from their mothers' arms.

Jeffs succeeded his father in 2002 as president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Former members say he rules with an iron fist, demanding perfect obedience from followers and exercising the right to arrange marriages as well as break them up and assign new spouses.

At the trial, widely different versions of the relationship -- and Jeffs' influence -- were presented by the woman, now 21, and her former husband, Allen Steed, 26.

At their wedding in 2001 at a Nevada motel, the woman said, she cried in despair when pressed by Jeffs to say "I do" and had to be coaxed to kiss her new husband. The woman testified that FLDS girls receive no information about their bodies or reproduction. She said she didn't even know sex was the means by which women had babies.

The woman said the couple were married for at least a month before they had intercourse, her husband telling her it was "time for you to be a wife and do your duty."

"My entire body was shaking. I was so scared," she testified. "He just laid me on the bed and had sex."

Afterward, she slipped into the bathroom, where she downed two bottles of over-the-counter pain reliever and curled up on the floor, she said. "The only thing I wanted to do was die," she said.

But Steed testified that his teenage bride initiated their first sexual encounter, approaching him after he fell asleep in his clothes after a 12-hour day at work.

Under Utah law, a 14-year-old can consent to sex in some circumstances. But sex is not considered consensual if a person under 18 is enticed by someone at least three years older.

For reasons prosecutors have never explained, Steed has not been charged with a crime.

The mainstream Mormon Church, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, renounced polygamy more than a century ago, excommunicates members who engage in the practice, and disavows any connection to the FLDS church.

Jeffs is also charged in Arizona with being an accomplice to both incest and sexual misconduct with a minor for arranging marriages between two underage girls and relatives of theirs. In addition, Jeffs is under federal indictment in Utah on charges of fleeing to avoid prosecution.

The charismatic Jeffs was captured in a traffic stop last year just outside Las Vegas after about 18 months on the run. At the time, he was on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list, alongside such figures as Osama bin Laden.

Jeffs was in a red Cadillac Escalade in which investigators found more than $57,000, cell phones, prepaid credit cards, wigs and sunglasses.

Since at least the 1920s, members of the FLDS have lived in the twin towns of Colorado City, Ariz., and Hildale, Utah, where the women wear long prairie dresses and have long braided hair, and the men dress modestly too, often in buttoned-up shirts.

All homes and other property were kept in a trust controlled by Jeffs and other church leaders until a judge in 2005 put an accountant in charge because of allegations of mismanagement.
