Can you see the truth from the lies?

The video above reflects reality on the ground in Indonesia. It is in response to lies told in the video below which is peppered with twisted half truths and exaggerated allegations … very typical in smear campaign videos made by mercenary activists; some of whom are methodically conniving and some .. laughably impressionable.

There are no “good” or “bad” environmental activists or business partners or policy-makers. Take a deeper look at this global intricate play of politics and greedy trade domination.

Take your time and decide for yourselves; What’s the truth? What are the facts and figures that can be scientifically verified? Who are telling lies?

To all oil palm planters … look around you and take a more discerning perspective. Some stakeholders may be in the same boat but they have been drilling holes. 

Maybe they succumb to selfishness, arrogance, revenge-seeking and greed. Select information are withheld to give a desired impression … a façade that is far from the truth. Why? money …. very big money.

Many people in the palm oil industry have yet to connect the dots. Every year, Malaysia exports some US$20 billion worth of palm oil to more than 150 countries. 

In negotiating the terms of  the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) with the USA — the lead negotiator of TPPA, it would the right thing to do for Malaysia’s Ministry of International Trade & Industry policymakers to include the interests of oil palm planters and exporters. 

The same goes for Malaysia’s negotiation of the free trade agreement (FTA) with the EU.

Keen attention must be focused on dismantling disguised trade distortion measures oil palm planters are facing. After all, Malaysian government officials must remember that their salaries are derived from hard-pressed taxpayers’ money …. and guess what? Malaysia’s biggest taxpayers, on a sectoral capita basis, are the oil palm planters.

May the select few government officials, who considers serving the country an honourable duty, take the lead in fulfilling the most basic expectation of taxpayers; People First, Performance now.

    Why can't the Malaysian & Indonesian government take even more drastic actions against these disinformation campaign by Greenpeace, WWF & FoE?

    Malaysian & Indonesian governments, including the Palm Oil growers can pool fund to setup counter-lobby group to expose their lies and sue them in court of law for damages/libel/slander/defamation and get compensation accordingly. There are cases where Greenpeace was sued for similar economical damages.

    At national level, Malaysian & Indonesian governments can enact laws and rules, to punish these local branch activists of Greenpeace, WWF & FoE, everytime they caused economic disadvantage (bordering industrial/economic espionage), by sentencing them to community service or hard labor, with the actual Palm Oil workers in the actual plantation.

    At international level, Palm Oil producing countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, African, etc) must form a cartel OPEC-like body to defend its survival and growth opportunities. Speak with one big voice in international forums to highlight the lop-sided treatments and protectionists' attempt to undermine Palm Oil exports.

    The ultimate solution to is to lump 'EU/US funding to green groups' together with illegal subsidies by WTO definition, because of its similar objectives. The shady funding is just 'another mean to justify the same end'.

    Palm Oil producing countries must then take unilateral measures by imposing punitive countervailing duty as a backup plan.

    Those who do wrong will eventually face their own KARMA because what goes around comes around.

    MONEY.. lie for it, spy for it, kill for it, die for it.

    You're saluting the flag, your country trusts you
    Now you're wearing a badge, you're called the “Just Few”
    And you're fighting the wars, a soldier must do
    I'll never betray or deceive you my friend
    but…
    If you show me the cash, then I will take it
    If you tell me to cry, then I will fake it
    If you give me your hand, then I will shake it

    You'll do anything for money…
    Anything, anything, anything for money
    I'ld lie for you, die for you
    I'ld even sell my soul to the devil!

    You say you wouldn't do it for all the money in the world
    I don't think so!!
    If I show you the man, you will sell him
    If I ask you to lie, you will do him
    If you're dealing with God, then you will hell him
    You'll do anything for money

    Greenies…if you want money, earn it with dignity!
