Thanks, Cal. Excellent article. And, Shelly: I'm sorry I'm unable to send you a star since I sent one in the past week. Just direct me to those petitions.
I've been reading many articles about these various Trans-National Canadian mining corporations profiting by raping the land in many countries worldwide. Here in AZ, they have been pushing their Rosemont Mine...Care2 has petitions against that one and to save the endangered species on that land. They are also looking to mine an area in the Grand Canyon, as well as a spot near Eloy--between Phoenix and Tucson. They're getting pushback from locals, though. Publicity has been sparse, though, lately.

Utterly wrong. All the more so since they are agents of an illegal, corrupt dictatorship. Please see that it is stopped now.

Myanmar has an appalling human right policy and there will never be freedom of speech or anything else as long as it has dictatorships Its obvious President Obamas talks did nothing Its time the world started to crack down on places like this and all countries should show their disapproval of the treatment and abuse of the people there
