Smoking and global warming


A final report from Indonesian news agency Pena, from a hotel room in central Jakarta, describes the development of today’s tobacco industry. The report is in the form of a 65-page-thick magazine headed on the first page, “The Hypocrisy and Myth Behind the Tobacco Industry.”

Pena Indonesia claims that this report is based on research reports on various search tobacco industry documents. Also included are two CDs or compact discs containing thousands of documents from Indonesia’s multinational industry. As a document from British American Tobacco or BAT, Philips Morris and others.

The workshop was attended by journalists and health activists. It seeks to provide insights on the existence of confidential documents related to the arrival of giants in the world tobacco industry and their relationship with Indonesia.

The workshop was also supported by the Indonesian representative of the World Health Organization WHO, the IAKMI-Public Health Specialist Association of Indonesia and the SEATCA-The Southeast Asia Tobacco Control Alliance.

Pena Indonesia works for 3 months and looks into the computer. Mines thousands of documents online from seven giant cigarettes recorded from the 1960s to the early 2000s. At least about 28 million documents from British American Tobacco or BAT Indonesia are in the digital library at the University of California, San Francisco.

The walkthrough will also take place at the site’s Legacy Tobacco Document Library, which contains internal documentation for Philips Morris, RJ Reynolds, Lorillard, and Brown & Williamson. The results were reported and written by Farid Gaban and Alfian Hamzah of Pena Indonesia news agency and Mardiyah Chamim of Tempo Magazine. Compensation and support in the form of grants from the Washington-based Essential Action Global Toship of Tobacco Control.

This story started in 1998. This year may be the most unfortunate thing for the American tobacco industry. Humin Humphrey III, the Attorney General of Minnesota in the United States, issued a big whistle-like warning to the tobacco industry. The Attorney General has asked seven leading companies in the smoking industry to publish all confidential documents. Aim to find the truth.

These documents are internal documents containing various letters to authorities, scientists, and media tricks that support the tobacco business. Seven giants including Philip Morris Incorporated, RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, British American Tobacco (BAT), Brown and Williamson, Ligget Group and the Tobacco Institute, The Council for Tobacco Research and Lorillard Tobacco Company.

US courts have 6 million documents and 35 million pages. Each page is a seal and code number of an industry lawyer to ensure its authenticity. The court also requires tobacco industry officials to deposit documents by 2008.

While in England, a pile of British American tobacco documents were usually kept in a warehouse in Guildford, Surrey, England. The BAT Archive of Online Documentation is held at the University of California, San Francisco, USA.

There are 7 million documents in the form of scanned documents. And spent about four years working hard for their hard work. Unfortunately, according to Duncan Campbell, an American research journalist who helped find smoking industry documents, the claim of about 181 files containing thousands of pages of documents was lost. These missing documents are unclear and may be associated with regions of other countries such as Indonesia.

One of the surveys in the American smoking industry was devised for the film The Insider, which talked about a study in which American TV journalists found a level toxin scam. US media encourages and affects people that smoking is a threat. Tobacco became a public issue, and encouraged strict smoking restrictions and the birth of the basics.

The tobacco industry should be controlled and tightly controlled. Not good climatic conditions for owners of the US tobacco industry. And ask the US government for strict rules that apply only to the US. It also does not apply to international business networks in different parts of other countries. The invasion since 1998 was ongoing. And the purpose that the owner of the cigarette is a country that enters the third country group.

What about the countries in the region, especially Indonesia, in relation to this document? Is Indonesia a third country? Indonesia is a land auction and a paradise for the world tobacco industry. The tobacco industry in Indonesia has reincarnated and looked like its own “kingdom”. He plays many roles and the automatic movement does not have many obstacles and barriers.

Legal, economic, social and political paths. The smoking industry in Indonesia has grown rapidly and was slippery. It borrows the tobacco industry, the heart of the people, which is the largest daily newspaper in West Java, for “dissemination and retention”. Many Indonesian media have not criticized, but they have preached to make deep statements, particularly related to the tobacco industry. Indonesia has developed its business with a wide range of movements, ideas and influences of the tobacco industry.

You can learn a lot from the tobacco industry documentation. Learn how they work, position them, and influence policy makers, the economy, and the media up to the “buy and sell” survey. The document is clear and provides details. To get a complete picture of the building of the entire tobacco industry in the world, we need to work hard, carefully detail and build on sheets of documentation.

According to an organization based on the Southeast Asian Tobacco Control Alliance (SEATCA), the October 2007 report, “Profiting from Death: Exposed the Tobacco Industry Tactics in ASEAN Countries,” has so far accounted for about 50% of global tobacco consumption in the region. Tobacco consumption. And Asia is considered the future of an important market for the world tobacco industry.

Although 10 countries are members of ASEAN, approximately 31% of ASEAN, or 125.8 million young people, are smokers. Or, about 10%-125 billion-from the number of young smokers in the world, smokers continue to increase, and ASEAN member countries contribute up to 20% to smoking mortality.

SEATCA is a partnership network of state institutions integrated into ASEAN that conducts research, support and capacity building for each member of ASEAN. SEATCA will work with members who have ratified tobacco regulations against the WHO Convention and the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), including Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia and Vietnam, to build advocacy missions. Indonesia is the only country in Asia that has not ratified these treaties at this time.

The WHO Convention on Tobacco Control is essential for its application to the Indonesian tobacco industry. This treaty regulates and controls the tobacco industry. There are about 38 articles in the competition, aiming to improve the quality of health worldwide.

Business development to drive the tobacco industry is not a single strategic one. Business strategies follow the situation in each area of ​​development. He is committed to organizing and deciding target groups, promoting political policies that support good business from government or national representatives, working with anyone to promote and form a complete market. Did.

The tobacco industry builds its image in different ways. Create direct communication with consumers by placing tobacco products from advertising through signage, print advertising, electronic media, posters, accessories, colors and logo outlets that cause images of tobacco products.

Promotional activities by distributing free tobacco samples, coupons, contests, lottery tickets, sports games and race tickets, music concerts, movies, talk shows, corporate social responsibility or activities in the form of corporate social responsibility. The Street Party to (CSR) supports scholarships, environmental projects, and other activities under the name of the company or tobacco industry product. Achievements, including providing scholarships to journalists and school children.

SEATCA surveyed a 2007 survey on the status of rule management regarding promotion, advertising, CSR and sponsorship in seven ASEAN countries. Includes Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Five countries have very strict rules governing advertising in question, prmosi, sponsorship, and CSR.

These five countries include Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand. Of these five countries, Thailand has very strict rules and limits for the tobacco industry. Cambodia and Indonesia have the two most free rules, regulations and no regulations.

Cambodia and Indonesia are heavens for the tobacco industry. Both countries are relatively poor countries, right? It is estimated that the poverty rate in Indonesia is 49% and the cost of living in the United States averages $2 a day. Neither has rules or restrictions that strictly control tobacco control issues.

This is the most profitable opportunity for the tobacco industry. The tobacco industry has the power and capital to help maximize its business and profits. The industry generally offers dream medicines and advertising to get out of poverty.

And it offers word-relevant advertising and interesting success. This is a dream and a dream for all. Success of the tobacco industry by providing tobacco. Giving up cigarettes is one of the main ways in which each individual can escape poverty and succeed.

Poverty has become a for-profit area. And the industry was well aware of this situation. Poverty, lack of regional representatives and the role of government, lack of political awareness, and the role of the helpless media in tobacco advertising.

AC Nielsen figures show that advertising spending in the tobacco sector in 2006 was Rp1.6 trillion. Which moron media loses and is there a money offer for that? Some Indonesian media may be conscious and may choose not to accept tobacco ads. But the question is how long the power of this medium will last. Please refrain from the onslaught of cigarette ads.

Tobacco has become a major consumer of the poor. Annual tobacco consumption reached 225 billion cigarettes. Tobacco contains 4000 toxic chemicals. And tobacco is the leading cause of carcinogenic, heart and other illnesses that cause death in the long run. As shown every year in Indonesia, people die and cause as many as 400,000 people, as shown in cigarettes!

The number of smokers in Indonesia has increased sharply. Based on the National Bureau of Statistics of the National Economic Survey for the period 2001-2004, the number of beginner smokers has increased sharply, rising 0.4% to 2.8% under the age of 10. The National Committee on Child Protection has also obtained figures that 90% of teens are smoking to promote Indonesia. Teenagers have become the main target of the tobacco industry.

This number is alarming and in February 2007 some members of Congress moved to make some rules to restrict smoking. These rules are expected to limit, control and limit tobacco issues associated with infant activities. The rule also requires the tobacco excise tax to be raised by 60 percent in order to minimize people buying tobacco. It also encouraged expanding research into the effects of smoking on health.

In 1999, Indonesia passed Government Regulation 81/1999 on Safe Tobacco for Health, Government Regulation 38/1999 on Tobacco Product Advertising Media Procedures, and Government Regulation 19 on the obligation of tobacco manufacturers to include warnings on product packaging. Published /2003.

Indonesia has also benefited from this condition. Last year’s tax from the tobacco industry sector amounted to Rp38.5 trillion. And this year it is expected to increase to Rp 42 trillion.

The tobacco business in Indonesia is very sweet. Two Indonesian families doing business in the rank of cigarettes in Forbes Magazine’s most extensive list in the world. The Rachman Halim family, including the owner of Gudang Garam, which has a US$1.9 billion asset, accounts for 538 warnings. Budi Hartono and the ordering family of Jalm 664 with $1.5 billion in assets.

Most tobacco taxes in Indonesia are cheap compared to other countries. Australia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore have raised tobacco taxes by 70%. Set your tobacco tax at a maximum of 40% while in Indonesia. At this tax rate, the retail price of tobacco in Indonesia is one-fifth that of Malaysia.

Cheap cigarette prices are boosting consumer smokers in Indonesia. Accessing tobacco is very easy. According to a previous study by WHO and the American Cancer Society, about 70% of Indonesian smokers are men. 3% of female smokers are Indonesian.

Indonesia has a dual role that is misleading. While he earns from tobacco, much of Indonesia will lose its human resources due to tobacco damage. But an Indonesian health insurance company that guarantees his clients about smoking consequences?

The world of smoking cessation campaigns continues to strengthen. A rich country, educated to recognize the dangers of smoking. Smoking cessation movements are more difficult and seek to campaign on this issue at a global movement level. Signed an agreement between the Football Federation (FIFA) and WHO to regulate and ban tobacco sponsorship in the field of football.

MTV supports smoking cessation campaigns and encourages teens not to smoke. Europe and other Asian countries have ratified the Convention in accordance with the Tobacco Control (FCTC).

But resistance to the Indonesian tobacco industry is still very weak. Anti-smoking movement from both citizens, communities and doctors. WHO Indonesia has picked some names for artists and athletes in the national sports quit campaign. Tennis champion Angelique Wijaya, bodybuilder Adeley, and model tray seat Linita.

But on behalf of all three, it is not enough to encourage Indonesian people to establish an anti-smoking movement. Indonesia needs a great person and a steady attitude for a smoking cessation movement. It’s not just a slogan non-smoking course. However, the anti-smoking movement is broad and strategic.

In short, Indonesia’s smoking cessation movement is still classified as powerless. He needs power and strength to stop strong and aggressive opposition from the tobacco industry. And journalists should write a campaign to keep an eye on the expansion of logging from the tobacco industry.

Advertising and propaganda wars in the black smoke world struggle. And Indonesia is a powerful combat area that maps today’s global tobacco world. It is also related to Indonesia’s local tobacco industry. As a local industry of Spirit, Malang, Jember and Kediri. Indonesia’s local tobacco industry has also played an important role in affecting the smoking community.

In Indonesia, it is called a clove cigarette while smoking outside a product called white smoke. The local tobacco industry is a small king tobacco, many of which are in Java. The expansion of the world tobacco industry is driving aggressive and powerful bosses to gain current market share. White cigarettes Cloves cigarettes fight.

Who is the most powerful? The smoking industry to build smoking myths, facts and misleading research. And we know that the victims of battle are the decline of everyday citizens’ health. Indonesia and the country recognize the decline in public health.

The dangers of tobacco and the facts of publicity in the dark tobacco industry are clear. Tobacco is not a compromise, but should be managed and regulated by the government and legislature. Indonesian society should be aware that tobacco is currently a viable epidemic.

The event ended in 2007 and Indonesia was elected for a global discussion on global warming. It was held in Bali in December. Global debate is crucial to discussing and implementing strategic steps related to global warming and environmental issues. Indonesia is also classified as bad in the environmental field.

Indonesia, including areas with a red tendency for environmental issues such as illegal logging, mining, industrial pollution, and automobile waste emissions. This global debate makes decisions and policy is very important. As a result, state leaders and citizens are encouraged to support and implement strategic measures to curb today’s global warming.

I was shocked when he read the daily National Journal. The newspaper advertisement on the main page at the bottom of the column was later directed to the implementation of global warming in Bali. Bright green major ad close to the environmental issue of color icons.

This print ad includes a statement or countdown date for December 2007. These ads also include the name of the tobacco company Sanpolna and the word “green” which can be interpreted to refer to one of Sanpolna tobacco’s main products.

It’s sad to see the global warming debate have to get support from the tobacco industry. Most of the business and its benefits come from the Indonesian poor. Probably the sadness that remains unreleased and forgotten voice in the noisy turmoil of global warming.

This is an important note, the mirror itself, the question for all of us. Environmental problems are common. He moved away from his conscience and our common sense. What’s the value of a global warming event coming from a tobacco company? However, tobacco is a toxin and one of the leading causes of death. Isn’t it correct that global warming measures come from the tobacco industry?

A pile of internal documents in the tobacco industry for which they provided clear answers. Develop tactics, plans, strategies, political lobbying for issues and raise awareness about errors and dirty cigarettes.

I am very sorry that there are dirt and thorns on global warming. This will be the wedge and slap of the world cliché. It’s as if life began with a cigarette.

The cigarette slogan is not lip service. And the strength of Indonesia’s tobacco industry demonstrates that fact. And this is not true. The tobacco industry is seen as making traps and myths. Tobacco is an important issue for humanity. Living in a world of cigarettes full of compromise, fraud and darkness strategies.

And, as Ben Johnson wrote long ago in The Alchemist, it’s probably true in the world’s tobacco struggle. “

It’s a sequel.
