Papuan self-determination - historical roots VII

"Was it Sukarno who maintained the conflict or the conflict that maintained Sukarno? Some observers, varying from the one-time American Ambassador to Indonesia, Howard Palfrey Jones, to ex-Dutch Prime Minister and High Commissioner in Indonesia, Louis Beel, have maintained the latter. The Papua issue, they say, was giving Sukarno his oxygen, kept him in the saddle and gave him wellnigh dictatorial powers. However this may be, conflict there was." Arie Brand

Ethical Returns

"Ethical investment or socially responsible investment is about making a conscience decision to direct money into companies that are at least not harmful and ultimately make a beneficial contribution to a more liveable society. Of course there are a wide range of opinions about what constitutes an ethical or sustainable investment. There is certainly a great amount of diversity amongst the ethical and socially responsible investment funds, some have religious convictions, others are traditional investment managers who have recognised the financial value of sustainability and there are deep green managers who take a no compromise approach and only support the strongly positive investments."
