181. Unocal In Myanmar (Burma) - The Story That The Media Doesn't Tell About Unocal I
Unocal, with Total of France, is developing the Yadana natural gas project in Myanmar(burma).

Judge finds for Unocal is California Phase 1 trial
April 14, 2004 Collaborative for Development Action conducts third
independent field study of Yadana project
February 2004 Summary of Unocal's key points from meeting with state/union pension fund administrators Oct 1, 2003 For more than a decade, Myanmar (Burma) has been a focus of the debate over whether engagement or isolation is the proper course to achieve social and political change in developing countries with repressive governments. Unocal, based on nearly four decades of experience in Asia, believes that engagement is by far the more effective way to strengthen emerging economies and promote more open societies. Others disagree with our view, favoring economic and political isolation as a better way to bring about change. We welcome a vigorous debate on the merits of those two approaches. Over the past five years, however, activist groups who oppose the military government of Myanmar have not been willing to limit the debate to the merits of engagement or isolation. Instead, these groups have resorted to spreading false and hurtful allegations about Unocal and the Yadana natural gas project. The activists' goal is to apply public and political pressure on Unocal in order to force the company to sell off its interest in the Yadana project and withdraw from that country. As part of this effort, they have conducted a well-orchestrated campaign to influence news reporting. Unocal and the other project investors do not defend the actions and policies of the government of Myanmar. We do defend our reputation and the integrity of the Yadana project. Our hope is that Myanmar will develop a vital, democratic society built on a strong economy. The Yadana project, which has brought significant benefits in health care, education, and economic opportunity to more than 45,000 people living in the pipeline area, is a step in the right direction.

var loc = "../../../";
c.3400 B.C.
The opium poppy is cultivated in lower Mesopotamia. The Sumerians refer to it as Hul Gil, the 'joy plant.' The Sumerians would soon pass along the plant and its euphoric effects to the Assyrians. The art of poppy-culling would continue from the Assyrians to the Babylonians who in turn would pass their knowledge onto the Egyptians. c.1300 B.C.
In the capital city of Thebes, Egyptians begin cultivation of opium thebaicum,grown in their famous poppy fields.The opium trade flourishes during the reign of Thutmose IV, Akhenaton and King Tutankhamen. The trade route included the Phoenicians and Minoans who move the profitable item across the Mediterranean Sea into Greece, Carthage, and Europe. c.1100 B.C.
On the island of Cyprus, the "Peoples of the Sea" craft surgical-quality culling knives to harvest opium, which they would cultivate, trade and smoke before the fall of Troy. c. 460 B.C.
Hippocrates, "the father of medicine", dismisses the magical attributes of opium but acknowledges its usefulness as a narcotic and styptic in treating internal diseases, diseases of women and epidemics. 330 B.C.

192. Trouser People Brings Football To Burma
An article about Trouser People the new book telling the story of the British adventurer who brough football to Myanmar.
When Trouser People Ruled
Burma has been in a terrible slump, on and off the soccer pitch. A new book offers a funny kick. It traces the arrival of the sport a century ago, showcasing along the way not only Burma's modern misery but decades of headhunting and good old-fashioned colonial repression.
By Ron Gluckman /in the library G OOD FORTUNE ALL TOO OFTEN PASSES BURMA , an utterly lovely land mired in misery and ruled by a succession of tyrants and military thugs. Hence, two events are reason for cheer, even if separated by a century or so. One is the arrival of soccer (football to everyone except Americans). Never mind that Burmese rank among the world's worst players, they approach the game with admirable gusto. Likewise journalist Andrew Marshall, whose lively retelling of this tale in "Trouser People" (Viking) is the best book on Burma in ages. This is not ordinary sports story. The focus is George Scott, fascinating Victorian-era explorer, administrator, pioneering photographer and all-around rogue who arrived in colonial Burma 130 years ago. He had scant Asian knowledge, none of British-ruled Burma, practically no governing skills and an unbridled independence that would later doom his diplomatic career - although he was knighted, surprisingly, later on. A skilled linguist and fearless traveler, Scott spent much of his life touring and snapping pictures of everyday Burmese, particularly remote tribes, many then enthusiastic head-hunters.

Washington, DC 20520

Consular Information Sheet This information is current as of today,
Burma (Myanmar)
April 8, 2004 COUNTRY DESCRIPTION : Burma (Myanmar) is an underdeveloped, agrarian country ruled by an authoritarian military regime. The country's military government suppresses all expression of opposition to its rule. After a long period of isolation the country has begun to encourage tourism. Foreigners can expect to pay at least five times more than locals do for hotels, domestic airfare and entry to tourist sites. Tourist facilities in Rangoon, Bagan, Taunggyi, Inle Lake, and Mandalay are adequate but are very limited in most of the rest of the country. Please note that visitors should bring cash necessary to cover their expenses for the duration of their visit, since traveler's checks, credit cards, and ATM cards will likely not be honored in Burma. (See "Currency" and "U.S. Treasury Sanctions," below). ENTRY REQUIREMENTS : The Government of Burma strictly controls travel to, from, and within Burma. A passport and visa are required. Travelers are required to show their passports with a valid visa at airports, train stations, and hotels. There are frequent security roadblocks on all roads, immigration checkpoints, and domestic air flights in Burma.
