Yet another great day out for Kuantan folks! 3,500 people poured in since 6.30am on this lovely Sunday morning for a show of solidarity to Stop Lynas! In record numbers, they came with their family members. Young & old, men & women, parents & children came with enthusiasm written all over their faces. Bearing Malaysian flags & wearing Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas! t-shirts, they gathered at the foot of Pelindung Hill warming up for their march up the hill while snacking on cakes, bread & water provided by the organizers. New friends were made as many of the folks shared with each other about their ideas to stop Lynas. Some of them inked their thoughts unto a huge banner depicting the messages of hope for Kuantan town. As of 8pm sharp, the march up the hill began, with Save Malaysia Chairman, Tan Bun Teet, giving the flag-off. Whe they folks, reached the top, they had a photo-session together. And just as they descended, they were greeted too with another request for a photo-session with those who just arrived. By this time, Kuantan's Member of Parliament, Fuziah Salleh paid a visit & joined a group of Mahasiswas & Mahasiswis (Undergaduates from KL) as they sang along to a tune they made up on the spot. Their chorus of 'Mahasiswa tolak Lynas', 'Balik, Balik Lynas' drew a resounding applause and set up the momentum for the next big gathering!
