UN report on abuses in Myanmar and ties to disaster capitalism

Image result for myanmar cartoon

The UN recently released its independent international fact-finding mission report on Myanmar which encouraged the world to sever ties with the country’s military and the many companies, local and foreign, making $ from the brutal conflict.

Thanks to Rawan Arraf, a wonderful lawyer in Australia and founder of the Australian Centre for International Justice, she informed me that my last major book, ‘Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing Out of Catastrophe’, via Verso Books, is referenced twice in the report. I don’t mention Myanmar but explain how corporations make $ from misery across the globe from Afghanistan to Papua New Guinea. Consider it a global hammer against exploitation.

The report mentions my book twice and I’ve posted one of them here.
