STOPPING AN AUSTRALIAN MINING COMPANY TO DUMP TOXIC WASTE IN MALAYSIA NEAR POPULATED COASTAL REGION

Sydney-based Lynas Corporation is constructing a huge rare earth refinery near the city of Kuantan in Malaysia. It is scheduled to bring rare earth ore from its WA mine in Mt Weld to the refinery in Kuantan, Malaysia.
Every year it will dump 230,000 tonnes of solid waste containing radioactive thorium and a rang of heavy metals and toxic substances. Every hour, 500 tonnes of waste water will be discharged into a natural river which flows into the sea. Every hour, 90,000 cubic meter of gaseous participles are released into the atmosphere. The refinery is within 2 km of densely populated coastal fishing villages and tourism hot spots. No detail of the waste management plan is made available to the public to date. Local people have been protesting to stop the refinery since March, to little avail. The corrupt Government instead sent in paid thugs to rough up the peaceful protestors consisting to grand parents, fathers and mothers with children. They are pleading for help for caring Australians to stop this company from proceeding with the refinery project.

You have no idea what you are talking about, it is quite clear by your comments that you have done no research.
You are just mindlessly parroting the lies of Fuzziah Sellah and the Save Malaysia idiots who do not know that they are being duped by Sellah for political purposes.

KUANTAN Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob yesterday reminded detractors to the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) in Gebeng, here that the affected residents would also include the sultan of Pahang and himself.
He said the government would have not given the nod for Lynas Corporation Ltd to build the RM2 billion rare earth processing plant because "if the plant were as dangerous as claimed, I would have fled as my residence and even the sultan's palace are in Kuantan".

"As menteri besar, I have access to all documents and reports related to LAMP, and the project is safe," Adnan said after attending the World Walking Day programme, organised by Nestle (M) Berhad, at Taman Gelora, here yesterday.

Adnan said voters in Pahang had given him the mandate to govern the state and it was his priority to protect the people's well-being.

"The opposition, especially Parti Keadilan Rakyat and DAP has kept on harping about the safety of the plant so they can lure voters and gain power.

"As the ruling government, we do not want to lose the support of our voters. Our political careers depend on the voters and our priority is to safeguard them," he said.

The menteri besar said Lynas was never an issue but the matter had been blown out of proportion for political mileage by the opposition, especially by Kuantan member of parliament Fuziah Salleh.

Adnan was responding to a recent statement by Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Mashal Ahmad, who had said that the public was still being fed misleading information on LAMP, by those who claimed to be "experts".

Thanks for the feedback 'anonymous' Sounds to me like you've either already been exposed to radiation or are benefitting directly from this venture. Why would any sane person say yes to a project that brings nothing but pollution to the country? OK it's created a few jobs in the Kuantan area but as Lynas get to operate tax free here that's about the only good thing you can say about this scheme.

Not feedback Sir. just a reply to your unsubstantiated claptrap that has been foisted upon you by a mendacious politician and the gullible people at SMSL.
Do some research before you post bigoted nonsense, a good place to start would be the open letter to Fuziah Sellah by a radiation expert - Nick Tsurikov.
Try to do some research before you parrot others lies and inaccuracies, you may then achieve some credibility. Bye the way, we are all exposed to radiation all of the time, mostly it is harmless. Your attitude has to be from other causes.

It's common knowledge that Fuziah is using Lynas as a political excuse to keep her seat in Kuantan. She has been caught out alot of time with her lies on paper and even on video.

Sounds like to me you have swallowed her radiation coming out of her mouth and cant be helped unfortunately.

Anti-Lynas groups just won’t accept the facts about the rare earth processing plant...

too late LAMP is already approved...expecting Lynas to announce pre-operating licence by the end of Nov,2011

Lynas will get licence, dont worry....be happy...me from Malawi...me happy, no problem for me.

one brain cell said...

Lee Teck Cheong it's also common knowledge that rather large sums of money have been handed over to key state players and officials to make sure the plant got built but hey, this is Malaysia where corruption is the norm so why worry huh?

gsm_masha: too right we won't accept the bullshit written by the NST and other mainstream media...what do you take us for? It's the pro Lynas lobby who refuse to face facts

anonyomous 1:44 I think you'll find that the license isn't approved yet and my sources tell me that there are problems in granting the license because Lynas have not complied with all conditions.

and anonymous Malawi your posting is typical of the 'not in my backyard' mentality that is destroying this country.

Think about it from this perspective...if it is safe, why are Lynas not processing in their own country?
The cost of transporting the ore from Mt. Weld to Kuantan is not something a company would pay unless they were desperate.
