Burma's Military Junta do not care one iota for the people they govern with an iron fist. Cruel and uncaring.

I guess the members of the military junta do not live anywhere close to the mine, power-station or smelter. They haven't yet evolved enough to care for others. Just like the American GOP and tea-party.

This is extremely disturbing and sad, I feel for these poor people and the environment.
Burma is run by a brutal regime and any upraise would have devestating results for the people. Thanks to political activists Western governments and consumer boycott pressured firms such Liz Claiborne, Macy's, Eddie Bauer to stop their productions in Burma; however, oil producers Chevron (USA) and Total S.A. (French one of the largest oil &gas producers in the world) continue their operation.

Thanks for this informative article Cal. Noted. I know it is not possible to stop the regime in Burma...but these Burmese people sure need help. I would like to see the movie Beyond Rangoon as mentioned above, so will be looking for it!
