Next Himpunan Hijau to be called by Lynas!

On June 24, thousands turned up  for Occupy Gebeng protest at the entrance of Gebeng Industrial  where Lynas is.

“The people will never retreat a single-step nor tolerate stagnancy. We will continue to push forward. Our second wave of people’s actions shall kick-off immediately!” said Wong Tack, chairperson of Himpunan Hijau.

The Himpunan Hijau steering committee has decided to kick start a Himpunan Hijau ‘BLOCKADE’ campaign straightaway. As we have promised, the people will not allow a single ounce of the Lynas’ ores to reach our shores. 

“We’ll bring together tens of thousands of people from across the nation to send the shipment of Lynas’ toxic ores back to Australia,” said Wong Tack.

A special task force has been formed to drive the ‘BLOCKADE’ campaign. This special task force will ensure that the nation will be ready on the day the Lynas’ ores are approaching our shores. This campaign will choke the Kuantan Port and paralyse the entire operation of the port. It will definitely cause serious adverse economic repercussions to the entire East Coast region. It is a choice to face a temporary short term economic pain or permanently letting the future of this town being buried in the darkness of radioactive pollutions. It is now up to the authorities to decide.

“The next Himpunan Hijau will be called by Lynas,” exclaimed Wong.

At a meeting last night, the Himpunan Hijau steering committee has given the task to organize the ‘BLOCKADE’ campaign to a highly charged second echelon of young local leaders. Ten young men and women have courageously stepped forward to spearhead this campaign. More will join in later to form a well represented and powerful task force. Active work will start immediately to build a strong alliance of environmental comrades nationwide.

The Himpunan Hijau steering committee strongly believes that the future of this country belongs to youth. This is the time for them to step forward to uphold the right to protect their future.

Said Wong Tack, “For more than a year, responsible Malaysians have came forward, himpunan after himpunan, in the most peaceful manner to request the authorities to respect their rights and listen to their voices.

“But up until now, the only response from the authorities were gimmicks after gimmicks, one stupid and illogical statement after another. They continued to derail the issue, mislead, suppress, ignore and belittle the people’s intelligence.”

At this moment, the anger is boiling within the community.

“We, as the leaders of Himpunan Hijau have done our very best to contain the anger within the masses. We foresee that anger will be uncontrollable when the ores reach our shores,” concluded Wong Tack.

The authorities and Lynas should bear the whole responsibility on all eventualities due to their actions or inactions.

Occupy Gebeng was a "colourful" anti Lynas event


  1. 800 people? Thats all. Pretty much says it all. Pleases read Lynas of Rochelle, http://www.nst.com.my/opinion/columnist/la-rochelle-the-lynas-of-france-1.99946
    50 years without an incident
    SMSL are a bunch of inciteful liars. Something tells me chinease activists are invading malaysia. Malaysia will be Chinease owned SOON.

  2. Malaysia is a third world county and will continue to remain a third world county if they continue with this sort of uninformed hysteria. Will the world continue to invest in Malaysia after the way this company has been treated? I don't think so.

    1. Lynas does not represent "the world".

      K thx bye

  3. The writer who wrote that NST article supposedly visited the Rhodia plant at La Rochelle but he couldn't even take more than one picture that doesn't even show the facility.

    Something smells fishy here.

    1. Yes, your correct something smells fishy.

      I think Chinese interests have been funding this protest movement. This is fishy.

      I also think Kuantan has a low literacy rate.

      Yin Lee. Why dont you do some research and LISTEN to experts. Dont listen to self-impoirtant biased rhetoric.

      Maybe the writer of the article only took one photo. Your assuming again. Even though the writrers article says that School Children visit the plant for tours, your still refusing to believe this. Why? What posseses you to ignore facts?

      This is the probelm with the whole Lynas issue. Too many idiots making assumptions and too many ignorant people basing their information on lies instead of scientific facts.

      Your to blame YinLee as YOU are one of them. An ignoramus!

  4. I did not mention school children visiting the plant at all, so I really don't understand your accusation.

    However, are you trying to say that the NST writer may have visited the plant with one such group of school children?

    That still doesn't excuse the lack of quality photographs.

  5. Ahmad Ibrahim, the NST columnist, conveniently or rather deliberately, did not disclose another factor which will ruin his analysis.

    Rhodia and Lynas are apparently business partners!

    Excerpt from [http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/03/rareearths-rhodia-idUSL5E7L33FO20111003]

    "Rhodia, one of the world's leading processors of rare earths through its production of speciality chemicals, is planning to expand its non-Chinese sourcing through a long-term deal with Lynas , which is due to start delivering raw material from an Australian mine later this year."

    His visit to the french facility was therefore a pre-planned junket by vested interests.
