Hadir beramai2. Penyerahan Memo – STOP LYNAS – kpd Pesuruhjaya Tinggi Australia di Kuala Lumpur 20 Mei

May 18, 2011

Dear Friends,

The Stop Lynas! Movement will be organizing a STOP LYNAS! Solidarity Walk this Friday (20th of May, 2011) from KLCC to the Australian High
Commission. The walk will end with the handing of the people’s memorandum to the Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia.
This event is jointly organized by THE PEOPLE’S GREEN COALITION, KUANTAN ENVIRONMENTAL WATCH GROUP & SAVE MALAYSIA.

We will rendezvous/converge in the vicinity of the KLCC Park (near the mosque) shortly after the Friday prayers at 2pm & will proceed to the
Australian High Commission on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng shortly after.

It is our hope that you will be able to join us in this historic event and show your support to us, the people of Malaysia, who oppose to an industry that
leaves behind unimaginable amounts of radioactive waste on our beloved land. Through this walk, we are sending the government of Malaysia
a resounding message that we will never allow our environment and health to be sacrificed in the name of profit. And most importantly this walk
is a showcase that the rights and voices of the people of Malaysia needs to be championed. Many prominent activists and opposition politicians will
be joining us for the walk.

Anyone who is a representative or member of the Malaysian Bar Council, NGO or any Civil Society will be issued a Human Rights Monitor tag.
We need your cooperation to monitor the Police force (particularly the FRU) so that they do not violate the rights of any participants on that
particular day.

TOGETHER, regardless of race, religion, social & economic standing WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Hope to see you there on Friday!

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE LYNAS ADVANCED MATERIALS PLANT IN GEBENG, PAHANG
by Dr. Khim Pa

An Australian rare earth company Lynas Corporation is constructing a refinery in an area closed to densely populated fishing communities and the city of Kuantan.

Local residents and environmentalists in Malaysia have since got together to stage a series of protest actions against the project which will leave behind a huge amount of radioactive wastes containing a cocktail of other hazardous substances.

Watch the videos on You Tube to understand the issue:
