4) This week's summary
of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

* Darfur activists have started a protest campaign against Olympic Games sponsors Coca-Cola and Staples for failing to speak out against the ongoing atrocities in Darfur, Sudan, where over 200,000 people have died. China has large investments in Sudan's booming oil sector and continues to sell arms to Sudan despite a U.N. arms embargo.
* In Colombia, former federal Sen. Mario Uribe, cousin and political ally of President Alvaro Uribe, has been arrested in Bogota for ties with paramilitary death squads in an expanding investigation.
* Chevron has publicly denounced two Ecuadorian activist lawyers who recently won the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize for their grassroots activism working to protect the environment.
