SMSL Press statement regarding recently formed STOP LYNAS COALITION' 27 Sept 2011

Re: Stop Lynas Coalition 
Date: 27 September, 2011.

Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL) is honoured to be invited to join the organiser, Kuantan Concern Citizens to be part of their  Stop Lynas Coalition recently.

However, after much deliberations, our committee has unanimously declined the invitation to be part of the coalition because of the following reasons:

1. SMSL’s Australian campaigns  has to be followed up closely. We have to monitor the development from our networking with the Senators, Member of Parliaments, Workers Unions and NGOs established in July and September, 2011.

2. SMSL has lined up a series of local and national  campaigns for the coming months to create a critical mass in our support to ask our government to scrap the Lynas Advance Materials Plant (LAMP) project. These programs have  to be carried out accordingly. We have limited manpower and resources. We cannot afford to overstretch our limited resources.

As such, SMSL has decided to pool all its manpower and resources to follow up and follow through  its action plans locally and abroad.

Nevertheless,SMSL will support the Stop Lynas Coalition in their collective or individual efforts to stop Lynas  and we look forward to working with them closely and synergistically.

SMSL remains a residents’ movement formed with the sole aim of stopping the LAMP from operating in Gebeng or anywhare in Malaysia.

Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas.
