Freeport....Tragedy continues

An Australian man has been shot while working at the Freeport mine in Papua province. The Indonesians are blaming the Papuans, the Papuans are blaming the Indonesians...but what about the Americans.

This is what they have done to one of the most special eco-systems on earth. and more photos from a recent visit here

They gained permission to do this by paying off the corrupt Suharto regime. It was in fact one of Suharto's first actions on taking power, along with being complicit with the ethnic cleansing of Chinese people from Indonesian villages.

It is a disgrace that the Western world, including the Australian man that has been tragically killed, can profit from this environmental cataclysm.
