An Appeal to Stop Lynas 

24th March 2012

Dear supporters and generous donors, 

 

SMSL is a voluntary residents group relying entirely on public donations and support for its activities and actions to stop the Lynas rare earth project. 

 

We are deeply touched and encouraged by the generous assistance and support rendered by members of the public for the Stop Lynas campaign. It is only through your on-going support that we can continue with our multi-prong campaign to stop the hazardous rare earth project.

  

Lynas Malaysia has engaged an expensive high profile public relation (PR) campaign. It has stepped up its media advertisements recently and has put out colourful booklets in response to the persistent and growing public opposition to the refinery project. 

 

The Malaysian Government has continued to defend the project. It has failed to exercise due care to protect our precious environment and the citizens.  A Temporary Operating License (TOL) was approved on 30th January this year despite Lynas not having a safe solution for its radioactive waste; its plant construction defects not audited by an independent engineering team and in the absence of a Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA). 

 

SMSL has been advised by a number of highly qualified independent technical and health experts of the risks and hazards of the Lynas plant for Malaysia. We have to keep our fight to create a clean and safe future for Malaysia. 

 

SMSL has established links with the Anti-Nuclear Alliance of Western Australia (ANAWA) and the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) to explore legal options to try to stop Lynas Australia from exporting its ore concentrate to Malaysia. 

 

The EDO has identified several possible legal angles to take including a court action.  The legal cost has been estimated to amount to A$70K (about MYR250,000 at today’s exchange rate). 

 

At the same time, SMSL has been working with the Pahang Bar Council to prepare legal challenge to the Government’s approval of the TOL - both through a ministerial appeal hearing and subsequently through the Malaysian court should the Minister refused to suspend Lynas’ TOL. 

 

We hereby call upon every concern person, organization and company to continue to support us to stop the Lynas project by donating generously for the legal actions and for other Stop Lynas activities. 

 

Donations of RM10 or more can be made by direct deposit to: 

 

Account Name: Pertubuhan Solidariti Hijau Kuantan Pahang 

Account Number: 3173473113 

Bank Name: Public Bank Berhad 

 

We have formed a legal organization known as Pertubuhan Solidariti Hijau Kuantan Pahang (3960-11-PHG) or Solidariti Hijau in short, registered under the Registrar of Societies.  SMSL is now a project of Solidariti Hijau. The Committee of Solidariti Hijau will be overseeing all the financial and legal matters of SMSL. 

 

We look forward to your generous support to create a safer future for Malaysia. 

 

Yours faithfully, 

Tan Bun Teet 

President, Solidariti Hijau

  7. All forex trades contain currencies because you're betting on the cost of a currency against any other. Consider eur/usd, the most-traded forex pair within the international. Eur, the first foreign money inside the pair, is the bottom, and usd, the second, is the counter. While you see a charge quoted in your platform, that price is how lots one euro is really worth in us greenbacks. You usually see expenses due to the fact one is the purchase charge and one is the promote. The difference among the 2 is the spread. When you click on purchase or promote, you're buying or selling the first foreign money inside the pair.Let's consider you suspect the euro will increase in fee against america greenback. Your pair is eur/usd. For the reason that euro is first, and you observed it will pass up, you purchase eur/usd. If you suppose the euro will drop in value against the us dollar, you promote eur/usd.If the eur/usd buy rate is 0.70644 and the promote charge is zero.70640, then the spread is 0.4 pips. If the exchange actions for your desire (or in opposition to you), then, after you cowl the unfold, you could make a profit (or loss) in your change.

  8. The foreign exchange (an acronym for "forex"), is the change of 1 forex into any other forex. Currencies aren't traded on an trade,however immediately among (crucial) banks, multinationals, governments and economic establishments. For the maximum part, the forex marketplace consists of hedging positions and strategies of national and worldwide multinational businesses. Think a agency has a settlement for the availability of goods, such as motors, inside the destiny. The cfo (leader monetary officer) of that business will shield himself from ability economic loss with the aid of hedging fluctuating alternate quotes. Hedging way protecting the threat of loss with the aid of destiny fluctuations of the change rate. That is because there is a length among the signing of the settlement and the real transport of the goods, in this case motors. It is hedging that brings massive quantities of cash to the foreign exchange marketplace.
